Hello, sorry for the absent manual!

The PX-8+ should have shipped with it already in Preset Mode. Pressing Button #5 should change between Preset and 4 button Instant Access Modes.

Creating presets is done as follows:
1. While in Preset Mode (LED 5 is Green) Call up the preset you wish to edit.
2. Press Button #5 to go to 4 Button Instant Access Mode (LED 5 will turn Red).
3. In this Mode "L" on the display indicates that Buttons A,D,C, and D control Loops 1-4... activate any of Loops 1-4.
4. Press the Bank Up or Down button to change the display to "H".
5. In this Mode "H" on the display indicates that Buttons A,D,C, and D control Loops 5-8... activate any of Loops 5-8.
6. Press and hold the Store button. The Store LED will turn Green, The Display will flash the current Bank number, and the Preset LEDs will scroll through continually until you make a selection.
(7.) If you want to change the bank that this new preset will be saved to, you can press the Bank Up or Bank Down button to change the Bank
8. Press the Preset button you want these settings to save to.
9. The Preset LED will flash to confirm the save.

Let us know if you get stuck!

Hey there, I just picked up a px-8 plus several days ago and I am VERY happy with it!

How do I get the px-8+ into standalone instant access mode, for 8 button access? Does this require powering down the unit?

Thanks!

Nate

If you want to just use the PX-8 Plus in 8 Button Instant Access Mode and have no presets, do the following:
1. Press and hold button #5 while powering up the PX-8 Plus.
2. Press button #5 to change the color of the #5 LED. Green = Preset Mode, Red = 8 Button Instant Access mode.
3. Power down, then power back up with no buttons held down.

I hope that helps!

Hello;

I really like that you can access 3 different presets at once on the PX-8 using buttons 6-8 while in preset mode.

I was wondering if this is still possible with the new PX-8 Plus? Are the presets only accessible one at a time by switching through the bank?

Thanks!

PX-8 Plus has four preset buttons rather than just three. Each bank gives four more presets.

I hope that helps!

Cool!

No external foot controller is needed.

Creating presets is done as follows:
1. While in Preset Mode (LED 5 is Green) Call up the preset you wish to edit.
2. Press Button #5 to go to 4 Button Instant Access Mode (LED 5 will turn Red).
3. In this Mode "L" on the display indicates that Buttons A,D,C, and D control Loops 1-4... activate any of Loops 1-4.
4. Press the Bank Up or Down button to change the display to "H".
5. In this Mode "H" on the display indicates that Buttons A,D,C, and D control Loops 5-8... activate any of Loops 5-8.
6. Press and hold the Store button. The Store LED will turn Green, The Display will flash the current Bank number, and the Preset LEDs will scroll through continually until you make a selection.

8. Press the Preset button you want these settings to save to.

Do you also want to automate any switching functions on the Twin?

Yes, I would want to automate switching on the Twin, but I figured I would try to get the 4-presets working first. I would appreciate the info and will try all you advice.

Thanks!

Please note, I just tried your first email response and everything seemed to go as planned except for the "L" in the bank window. No activity at all-blank screen. Do I have a faulty unit or am I doing something stupid? Your comments appreciated.
