First, decide which pedal you want to be the Controller. Connect the MIDI OUT/THRU port from that pedal (Controller) to the MIDI IN port of the pedal you want to control (Slave).

Next you have to enable the control settings you want on the Controller:

  1. Enter System Mode on the Controller by pressing and holding both the Encoder Button+Right Footswitch for a few seconds.
  2. Turn the Encoder Knob until you see 'MIDI,' then press the Encoder Button to enter the MIDI menu.
  3. Turn the Encoder Knob until you see 'PGM XMT' (Program Transmit). Press the Encoder Button to enter this menu and set the value to 'ON'. This will allow the Controller to change Presets remotely on the Slave.

You can also set the Controller to control parameter values on the Slave via its ten knobs and its Expression Pedal. To do this:

  1. Set 'CTL XMT' (Control Transmit) to ON in the same way as described above. This will enable MIDI Continuous Controller Transmitting.
  2. You'll have to determine which parameters on the Slave you'd like to be controlled. This is done in the Slave's 'RCV CTL' (Receive Control) MIDI menu. In this menu you'll see abbreviations of the things that can be controlled. This includes the ten knobs, the Expression Pedal, Bypass, and other functions. Any of these can be set to a RCV CTL number. When you match that number to a number in the Controller's 'XMT CC' menu, then the Controller can control that item.  

You shouldn't have to save anything for the MIDI menu settings to stick, just leave System mode the same way you entered it by pressing and holding both the Right Footswitch and the Encoder Knob for a few seconds.
