Configuration

Presets

The Presets screen screen_presets allows access to up to 50 presets. A preset contains all parameters defined on the Orbiter and Effects screens.

The first three rows of the grid contain fifteen Factory presets which are read-only. The other presets are User presets which can be stored and renamed.

To store a preset, select a slot and press Save. If the slot is not free, it will be overwritten with the new values.

Warning

Do not power off Vector when saving a preset, wait for the confirmation message first.

Hints

  • The Presets screen screen_presets also allows for Firmware updates. User presets are preserved during an update.

  • It is possible to change the current preset by a MIDI Program Change message (value 1 corresponds to the top-left and value 50 to the bottom-right preset).

Global settings

The Settings screen screen_settings contains global configuration which is common for all presets. The configuration can be stored using the Save button or reset to defaults.

MIDI configuration

The following MIDI parameters can be set in the Global settings:

  • MIDI input channel for receiving Note On/Off, Control Change (CC), Pitch Bend, and Program Change messages,

  • Separate Arp in MIDI channel for Note On/Off events fed into the Arpeggiator (equals to the MIDI input channel by default),

  • MIDI output channel for sending MIDI messages (Start/Stop, Timing Clock, and also notes received from connected MIDI controllers if Forward MIDI notes is enabled),

  • Separate Arp out MIDI channel for sending notes played by the Arpeggiator if Output Arp MIDI notes is enabled,

  • The option to ignore velocity of the received notes and use a Fixed MIDI velocity to play all notes wit the same amplitude, and

  • The option to divide the received MIDI Timing Clock (depending on the Tempo configuration) by a factor defined by the Master slowdown.

Hint

Both MIDI input channel and Arp in MIDI channel can be set to receive messages on all sixteen channels simultaneously.
