Design and Architecture

The MC8 is a fully programmable MIDI controller, capable of controlling up to 16 MIDI devices per switch.

 

There are 30 banks. Each bank has 22 presets and 4 expression presets. Each preset can be programmed to send out 16 different messages.

 

 

 

Each bank can display up to 8 presets, of which all are accessible from the 8 switches. The other 8 presets can be engaged via dual switch presses or external aux controllers. A Page Toggle function is also available via Switch B+C to switch between the first 8 presets and the last 8 presets.

Besides these 16 presets, the OmniPort 1 and OmniPort 2 can control Presets Q-S and Presets T-V respectively with an external 3 switch aux controller attached.


Hardware Overview

Powering the MC8

9VDC Centre Negative power supply

Connect a 9VDC centre negative power supply to the power input of the MC8.

 

Phantom Power (9-12v AC or DC)

Connect a 7-pin Midi cable to the MIDI OUT port of the MC8. Phantom power is supplied through pins 6 and 7. Phantom power is chained to pins 6 & 7 on the MIDI IN port as well, allowing you to power other devices.

If sending DC power via the pins, the polarity does not matter.

 

USB power

Connect a USB cable to the MC8. The MC8 is capable of being fully powered by USB.


Connections

Information on all the inputs and outputs on the MC8.

Rear Panel

On the rear panel, you will find 4 Omni Ports (1/4 inch TRS) that can be independently configured to be Expression Pedal inputs, Aux Switch inputs or MIDI outputs.

MIDI In

This is where the MC8 receives MIDI messages from other MIDI devices.

The MC8 passes incoming MIDI messages via the MIDI In/Receive port out to the USB port, and vice versa.

MIDI Out

This is where MIDI data is sent from the MC8 to other devices. You can use a standard 5-pin MIDI cable, or a 7-pin one if you have a device that provides phantom power via pins 6 & 7.

The MC8 implements a soft MIDI Thru, where incoming MIDI messages are processed and can be sent out again via the MIDI Out port.

USB port

The MC8 can also send and receive MIDI data via USB, allowing you to have control over your DAWs and music software. It is class compliant and compatible with Windows, macOS, Android and iOS.

The MC8 can pass certain incoming MIDI messages (PC, CC and Note messages) via the MIDI In port out to the USB port, and vice versa.

OMNIPORT 1 - 4

The OmniPorts has the ability to

  • Send MIDI messages via TRS,

  • Be used with an Expression Pedal

  • Be used with an Aux Switch (up to 3 switches)

You can connect your expression pedals to these ports to control the expression presets, or connect aux switches to add more programmable switches to the MC8.

Please note that these ports are INPUT only, and cannot be using to control functions like amp switching or sending Control Voltage messages. You should only be connecting an expression pedal or TRS passive Aux Switches to these ports.

You should only use STEREO CABLES. Using Mono cables will cause the device not to work as intended.


Using External Aux Switches

You can connect an external Aux switch to your MC8 to control extra presets:

  • OMNIPORT 1: Preset Q R S

  • OMNIPORT 2: Preset T U V

  • OMNIPORT 3: Preset I J K

  • OMNIPORT 4: Preset L M N

The MC8 requires an aux switch that is wired like the schematic below. It has to be connected to the device with a stereo cable, where the Tip is connected to the ground via a SPST Footswitch, and similar to the Ring as well. Another switch can be added to connect both Tip and Ring to ground to engage an additional preset/setting. Please refer to the schematic below.

If you would like to build one yourself, you can refer to the following schematic:


Using Expression Pedals

Before using the expression pedal, check to make sure that your Omniport input settings are set to ExprnPedal. You can access this menu by going to the Global Configuration Menu >> OmniPort.

The MC8 work with TRS expression pedals. It works best with expression pedals fitted with 10k - 25k Linear potentiometers. The potentiometer wiper should be connected to the Tip of the stereo cable, while the Ring and Sleeve should be connected to the outer lugs on the potentiometer.

When connecting a new Expression pedal, be sure to calibrate it first by going into the Edit menu (Switch E+H), selecting Exp1 | Exp2 | Exp3 | Exp4 and then Calibrate.

Connecting TRS MIDI Devices

You can also use the Omniports to send TRS MIDI. To do so, you simply need to go into the Global Config Menu >> Omniport and then change the desired Omniport to MIDI OUT. Upon the device restarting, the Omniport will be configured to send MIDI out.

By default, the MIDI out is configured to send MIDI via TRS, where the MIDI signal is sent on the Tip and 3.3v power is sent on the Ring.

However, devices such as Chase Bliss uses a different configuration, where the MIDI signal is received at the Ring and the Tip is left floating. The MC8 can accommodate this, but this requires removing the back plate of the MC8 and

  1. Removing the bottom jumper

  2. Shifting the top jumper to the left

In the image above, Port 1 and Port 4 are configured to send MIDI to Chase Bliss devices.

 

For Meris pedals, only the Tip should be connected to Data while the Ring is left floating. The image below shows Port 4 configured to send Data to the Tip only.


Global Configuration Menu

To access the Controller Settings Menu, hold down Switch E before powering up the MC8. This menu allows you to edit the global settings for the device.

The Main Configuration Menu can also be accessed by going into the Edit Settings page (Switch E+H) and selecting ConfigPg.

The display will indicate that it is booting into the configuration page, and the menu below will be displayed:

You can select NextPage to view more options in the menu.

Factory Reset - Reset

To do a factory reset, hold down for 2 seconds. The display will show that it is performing a factory reset.
All user presets and settings will be reset to factory default when a reset is done.

Align Short Name - LcdAlign

When LcdAlign is turned on, your Preset Short Names will be aligned, depending on its position on the LCD. For example, Preset A name will aligned to the left, while Preset D name will be aligned to the right.

Re-arrange Banks - BankArn

Your banks can be re-arranged in this menu. More info here.

Set MIDI Channel - MidiChnl

Set the MIDI receive channel for the MC8. The MC8 can receive and respond to messages from external midi controllers.
Press Switch H or Switch D to increase or decrease the MIDI channel respectively.

Press Save to save your settings and Exit to exit.

Change OmniPort Settings - OmniPort

Change the device Expression Input Type and select between Aux Switch, Expression, MIDI Out, Fixed Sw 1 or Fixed Sw 2 Setting.

  • Aux Switch

    • Use a stereo cable to connect to an external aux switch to control more presets.

  • Expression

    • Connect an expression pedal via a stereo cable (Tip connected to wiper) to engage the expression preset.

  • MIDI Out

    • Sends MIDI out via TRS. The MIDI signal is sent via the TIP by default. There are jumpers in the circuit board which allows you to change to RING to control devices from Chase Bliss Audio.

  • Fixed Sw 1

    • Similar to the aux switch, but the functions are hard-coded to control the Bank Up, Bank Down and Toggle Page functions without sacrificing any presets.

      • Tip = Bank Up

      • Ring = Bank Down

      • Tip + Ring = Toggle Page

  • Fixed Sw 2

    • Similar to Fixed Sw 1 but the Bank Up and Bank Down are reversed.

Switch Sensitivity - SwthSens

Set switch sensitivity. Choose from 1 (least sensitive) to 5 (most sensitive). Pressing Switch B+C will select 3.

More sensitive means that the lag between the time when a message is sent out and when the switch is pressed it at its minimum.

Lock dual switch presses - DualLock

When the dual lock setting is turned on, dual switch press functions like Bank Down, Bank Up and Toggle Page will be disabled.

Bank Display Time - BankTime

This setting adjusts the amount of time the bank details will show when the bank is changed.

The value displayed is in milliseconds.

Bank Change Time - BnkChgDl

This setting adjusts the time it takes to load the next bank when the bank is changed.

The value displayed is in milliseconds.

MIDI Clock - MidiClck

The MIDI clock setting toggles the persistent MIDI clock function ON and OFF. This setting is related to the MIDI Clock message under MIDI Types. If persistent MIDI is ON, the MIDI Clock message will continue sending a MIDI clock signal when engaged, even when engaging other presets or scrolling through banks. However, if persistent MIDI is OFF, the MIDI clock signals will shut off when an event (like a switch press or expression pedal move) is triggered.

Save Preset Toggles - SvePstTg

Determine whether preset toggle states are remembered when you change banks. If set to ON, your preset toggle states will be preserved when you change banks. When set to OFF, your preset toggle states will be reset when you change banks.

Long Press Time - LngPrsTm

Sets the amount of time (in milliseconds) you need to hold down the switch in order to trigger a Long Press action.

MIDI Thru - MidiThru

Enables the passing thru of all MIDI messages from the MIDI IN port to the MIDI OUT port.

Reset Bank Presets - RstBkPst

This resets all the Bank Presets to empty.

Cross MIDI Thru - CrsMdTru

Enables the passing thru of certain MIDI messages from DIN MIDI to USB MIDI, and vice versa. The supported MIDI messages are PC, CC, Note On, Note Off, Pitch Change and After Touch messages.


General Usage

Changing Banks

Step on Switches A+B together to bank down and Switches C+D to bank up. There are a total of 30 banks on the MC8.

Bank Changes can also be executed by programming a Bank Change function to a preset, or by using an External Aux Switch.

Switch and Display Names

Each switch corresponds to the display name closest to it.
Pressing Switch A activates Preset A, Switch B activates Preset B and so forth.

Mapping Actions to Midi Types

The MC8 allows you to map actions taken on the switches to MIDI Types and functions. For example, you can map a CC#1 message to a Press action, and a CC#2 message to a Release action. When the switch is pressed, a CC#1 message will be sent, and when the switch is released, a CC#2 messages will be sent. There is a list of actions available to you.

  1. Press

  2. Release

  3. Long Press

  4. Long Press Release

  5. Double Tap

  6. Double Tap Release

  7. Long Double Tap

  8. Long Double Tap Release

  9. Release All

  10. Long Press Scroll

More information can be found in the https://morningstarengineering.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=MC6MKII&title=Action%20Glossary .

MIDI Thru

The MC8 can be programmed to pass incoming MIDI signals from the MIDI IN port to the MIDI OUT port. It can also pass CC, PC and Note messages thru to the USB port. The MC8 will also pass incoming CC, PC and Note MIDI signals from the USB MIDI port to the MIDI OUT port.

You can toggle this setting on and off by pressing Switches A+H together.

Editing Presets

Both the Switch Presets and Expression Presets on the device can be edited via the on-board editing functions or the Web/Desktop Editor.

Editing Preset Messages

Selecting a Message to Edit

When you enter the Edit Msg interface, the screen above will show. In this screen, you can view the current Midi Type that is assigned to that message. It also indicates the current message that is selected for editing. Pressing Next will allow you to edit the selected message. Selecting ^ or v will allow you to scroll through the list of 16 messages to edit.

Edit Action

The next menu allows you to select the action to assign to the message. Once selected, each time that action is carried out on the corresponding preset switch, only the messages assigned to that action will be invoked.

Edit Toggle Position

The next menu allows you to edit the message toggle position. Select between 1, 2 and Both. This allows only the messages that match the current preset toggle position to be invoked.

Edit Type

The next menu allows you to edit the Message Type. Scroll up and down to select the Midi Type that you want to be associated with the message. You can read about the full list of Midi Types available in the Glossary.

Edit Type Parameters

Depending the Midi Type that is selected in the previous menu, unique parameter edit menus will be loaded. Edit your parameters and then press Save on the last page to save your settings.


Toggle Mode

Using the Web/Desktop Editor

Setting up a toggle message is easy. On the editor, there is a toggle option labelled Preset Toggle Off on the top left of the interface. Switch it to On to enable toggling for the preset.

How it works

Each preset on the MC8 allows you to toggle between two positions: 1 and 2. By default, the presets are on toggle position 1. If you switch the toggle position to ON, each time the preset is engaged, it will toggle to the other position (between 1 and 2).

Each message also has a position option, where it will be sent out only when the position of the message matches that of the preset. Hence, if you set Msg1 to be a PC message in Pos 1, and Msg2 to be a PC Message in Pos 2, and you have your toggle on for the preset, each press will toggle between Msg 1 and Msg 2.

Toggle Name

When the preset is in position 1, the Short Name will be displayed. When the preset is in position 2, the Toggle Name will be displayed.

Blinking

To indicate that the preset is in position 2, you can also use the blink option, where if the blink option is set to On, the Toggle Name on the main page will blink when the preset is in position 2.

Using the built-in MC8 editor

After going into the preset edit menu, go to Page 3 of the menu.
The Toggle button toggles between Toggle On and Toggle Off position for the preset, which the Blink button toggles between Blink On and Blink Off position for the preset.

When editing individual messages, there will be an option to select the toggle position for the message you are editing. Choose between position 1 or 2 accordingly.


Editing Expression Messages

To edit expression messages, press switch D + F first, which will bring you to the edit page, and then select the expression option.

Expression Edit Menu (Page 1)

The first page of the menu for editing Expression Messages are the same as that for editing Preset Messages.

Expression Edit Menu (Page 2)

On the second page, you have the option to edit the Full Name, Sensitivity or calibrate your expression pedal. You’ll also have the option to Copy or Paste Expression presets, or clear out your expression preset.

Edit Full Name

When the expression pedal is being used, you have the option of displaying a Name for your expression preset. Simply edit and save the name to your expression preset. See Editing Names for more information after entering the FullName option in the Expression Edit Menu.

Calibrating your Expression Input

It is best to calibrate your expression pedal before use to get the optimum performance. Simply go into the Calibrate setting in your Expression Edit Menu. Once there, follow the instructions in the LCD. First set your expression pedal to a heel down position. Ideally, the value should be displayed as 0. Press Next. Next, set your expression pedal to a toe down position. Ideally, the value should be displayed as 127. Press Save to save your settings. Do not worry if you can get a value of 0 and 127 in both positions. Once your setting is saved, the MC8 will optimise the settings to get the most out of your expression pedal.

Setting your Expression sensitivity

Depending on the potentiometer value used in your expression pedal, you may have to edit the sensitivity to get optimum performance. We recommend using expression pedals with 10k potentiometers. The sensitivity setting is used mainly to remove jitters, where the value sent by the MC8 might bounce between 2 values very quickly.


Editing Bank Settings

To enter the bank settings, press Switch D + F, which will bring you to the edit page, and then select the Bank option.

 

In the edit bank interface, you can edit the Bank Name as well as copy and paste banks.

Bank Name - Edits the Bank Name.

Copy - Copies the current bank.

Paste - Paste the previously copied bank to the current bank.

ClearTgs - Toggles the Bank Clear Toggle feature between On and Off. This feature allows you to disengage the rest of the preset toggle positions except for the preset that is just engaged. This is useful when you want the last-engaged preset to blink.


Editing Names

When editing any of the MC8 names like Preset Short Name, Toggle Name, Long Name, or Bank Name, this interface will be display on the screen.

It is possible to display the PC Scroll number in the Preset name by using a placeholder %E0 to %EF. Since there are 16 slots in the PC Scroll function, %E0 will display the number in the first slot, while %EF will display the number in the 16th slot. %E1 will display the number in the second slot.

The count goes as such: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F

If you use %F, this will offset the counter by 1, so the name will indicate 1-128 instead of 0-127.

( Left ) - Move the curser to the left.

( Right ) - Move the cursor to the right

( Up ) - Select the next character

( Down ) - Select the previous character

(Save) - Saves the name into memory.

(Exit) - Exits the interface.

Feature Glossary

Message Scroll Mode

Message Scroll Mode allows the Preset to scroll through each of the 16 Messages in the Preset.

For example, if you have Msg 1, 2 and 3 programmed with a RELEASE action and Preset Message Scroll mode is ON, on first RELEASE, only Msg 1 will be executed. On the next RELEASE, Msg 2 will be executed. On the next RELEASE, Msg 3 will be executed. It will then loop back to Msg 1.

Preset Toggle On/Off

Each Preset has 2 positions. By using the Preset Toggle feature, you can send different messages each time you engage the same Preset. You just need to set the Preset Toggle feature to On for your Preset, and then program the messages you want to send out in Pos 1 (Position 1) or Pos 2. When the Preset is toggled, you can program the Controller to show a different name. This is called the Toggle Name. You can also have the Controller to blink the name to indicate that the Preset is in Pos 2. This can be done by turning the Toggle Blink function to On.
