MIDI Instructions

To access the MIDI setup, go to the MIDI menu by clicking the ‘enter’ button. Here you can choose to activate the MIDI connection by choosing the “”ON”” option. If you turn it on, a screen appears and you can scan detectable MIDI devices in Bluetooth. This scan is needed only once per device. After that, when you turn on your Lâg HyVibe guitar (and you have left the MIDI setup on ‘ON’), it will automatically scan the previously detected devices to connect it to your guitar.

The HyVibe system’s MIDI function includes a preset for the Bluetooth MIDI pedal Airturn BT200s-2. AirTurn’s instructions for the pedal can be found here.

Before using the AirTurn pedal we recommend downloading their app and configuring the settings to Mode 7 and ‘Fast response’. You can download the app for iOS and for Android.

By default, the right button is assigned to the looper’s ‘record’ function, the left button is assigned to the ‘play / stop’ functions. You can configure your device mapping yourself by using the ‘enter’ button when choosing your device during the scan. You then enter a menu of settings for MIDI assignments. This menu is dedicated to people with good knowledge of MIDI configuration. You can choose to assign each button from 9 different actions:

HyVibe MIDI Bindings Instructions for the Airturn BT200S-2/4/6:

Here are instructions for configuring the functions of the switches.

First, connect the pedal to your guitar. Then, from the ‘MIDI Pedal’ menu press the ‘Enter’ button 3 times and enter the MIDI bindings screen. You have to put the BLE-MIDI Pedal on ‘ON’ to access the bindings menu, even if you don’t have to be connected to your MIDI pedal.

In the bindings screen, scroll through the available functions by using the rotary knob, when you have located the desired function, press the ‘right button’. The cursor will move to the next line, which by default says ‘Disabled’. Turn the rotary knob and switch from Disabled to ‘Channel 1’.

Press the ‘right button’, and with the rotary knob, set ‘Type’ to ‘ctrl chge’ (control change)*
Press the ‘right button’ again to edit the Number settings.

The different pedal switches are programmed on a ‘Number’ which are specific to each of them. You can scroll through these ‘Number’ using the rotary button to choose which one to assign to the function. For the Airturn BTS200-2 pedal, Number 64 is the left switch and Number 66 corresponds to the right.

On the BTS200-4, the foot switch numbers will be in this order: 64, 66, 65, 67 and if you have an AirTurn BTS200-6, the foot switch numbers will be in this order: 64, 66, 65 , 67, 68.

Once associated, press the ‘right button’ to return to the top of the bindings, then the ‘Enter’ button to return to the main menu.

The following chart displays hypothetical binding configurations for the AirTurn BT pedal series. Please not that the channel is always = 1, and Type always = Ctl Chge

AirTurn BT200S CHART If you are unfamiliar with MIDI, here is an article that could be useful for you.

*The Lâg HyVibe Smart Guitar should always be set to Channel 1.

* ‘Control change’ are MIDI messages that convey positional information relating to performance controls such as wheels, sliders, pedals, switches and other control oriented devices. Some pedals uses control change to convey information and some pedals uses ‘note on’ (like the iRig BlueBoard), which is just a different way to transmit information. You should always set ‘Type’ to ‘cntrl chng’ when using an AirTurn pedal. We also support ‘Note On’ but it’s not available in the AirTurn series.
