Assigning a controller to multiple zones

It's been asked a couple of times already but never given a proper answer as far as I can tell. The problem is rather simple: If you have a keyboard that can send over multiple zones, in my case a code 49, and you design a layered sound, say something typical like piano (ch1) Rhodes (ch2) and strings (ch3) and you want the pedal to sustain at least two of these sounds if not all three (simultaneously!!!) how do you do it?
Two sensible designs would be to have the pedal be assignable to multiple zones in the main edit page (btw the problem is the same for all major controllers, MW,PW,Volume,) or have the controller be programmable per zone. Neither option seems to be applicable. Is there something I'm missing?
Cheers and good will.

  • Hi Alain,

    Thanks for posting!

    The sustain pedal on the Code can be set to one channel at a time, either the standard 1-16, the global midi channel, or any of the zones specifically. Here's how:

    1. Press Edit to enter Edit Mode. The Edit button will light up.

    2. Press the sustain pedal down and then release it. SUS will appear in the display.

    3. Press the Chan Assign key. The display will show CHN for 1 second and then show SUS and current MIDI channel or zone channel.

    4. Use the numeric keys (0–9) or Preset Down/Up buttons to enter the desired MIDI channel (00 or 01–16) or zone channel (17–20).

    Note: Values 00 and 01–16 correspond to Code 61’s global channel and the 16 available MIDI channels. Values 17–20 correspond to channels used by Zones 1–4 (z1–z4).

    5. Press the Enter key. The sustain pedal will be assigned to that channel, and you will exit Edit Mode.

    You can't assign it to more than one channel at once, but I am happy to add this as a feature request for you!

    I hope this helps!

  • Please do add it as a feature request. This is a terrible omission in my opinion and it renders an otherwise great keyboard virtually useless for my needs. I understand from comments on this forum that it is not the only M-Audio keyboard to behave in this counter intuitive fashion. Just my two cents.

    It would be nice to have the option to route the sustain pedal globally...
    Thank you,
