There are actually a couple of ways of selecting the user programs via midi. The easiest is probably using MIDI Maps
. We have a MIDI Map tutorial
that breaks it out pretty well and is a good place to start. The basic idea is that you "map" program change numbers to programs on the G2. There is even a Learn mode which makes the MIDI Maps even easier to use.
You can also just set the G2 for "Sort programs by Number
" and send it a bank number (Continuous Controller 0 and 32) followed by a Program Change between 0 and 99. The bank sets the hundreds and the program number is an offset for that so you'd send CC0 with a value of 2 followed by PC 51 to get program 251. Note that not all foot pedals support banks.
You select the Sort mode from the Program mode by pressing the Options button and turning the big knob.
