Here's what I just posted on Korg PA900 forum:

As we all know, the 900 doesn't accept the Korg foot controller.
I purchased a Peak FCB4N2 controller and I have been able to assign intros, endings, break, start/stop, and some more functions.
I found a partial list of control numbers that one of our members worked out for PA600.
I can NOT find a full list though. Evidently Korg USA doesn't do phone support any more and they haven't answered my email. They probably don't know anyway.
I have looked in all the manuals from PA3x and PA900 and nowhere can I find a command to change Vocal Harmonizer on/off, Text up/down, etc.
Has anyone done any of this?
Here's the thread that was so helpful to me, but I'm pretty much a midiot. Smile

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Don,

I am pretty sure that the VH and paging codes are Program Change commands, but sorry to say I don't know which ones. Your foot controller does handle PC codes and there are only 127 to try. ;-)

Yes, I was just hoping someone might have already done it. You would think Korg would supply a list.
Thanks.

You would think that, wouldn't you?

The lack of MIDI and sysex documentation is the one thing I miss most about leaving Yamaha for Korg.

I understand that there is a iPad app for connecting to the Korg for using Song Book, so there has to definitely be a way to access the things you wish.

Got most of it figured out. I can do break/fill, variations, start-stop, etc. Still haven't found how to do vocal harmony off/on, but I can use direct pedal for that.

Don,

I think VH on/off is hard wired that way by switch or foot pedal assigned only.

How you doing?

I think you are right. No problem though.
I think I'm doing better. Will know more in a few days after next Dr. appointment. Thanks!

Since I now have PA4X, I no longer need this foot pedal. If someone wants it, I'll let it go very reasonably.
