In direct sunlight or next to heating equipment. In extremely cold or hot locations. Locations exposed to high humidity or excessive dust. Locations subject to strong shocks or vibration.

Before making any connections, make sure that the power is switched OFF on the MAGICSTOMP and any external devices.

To protect speakers from possible damage, always set the VOLUME knob to 0 before switching the power ON/OFF.

When connecting any devices to this unit, make sure that the power is switched OFF first.

Do not apply excessive force to the switches, knobs and controls.

The MAGICSTOMP is a precision device. Handle it with care and avoid dropping or jarring it.

For safety, always remove the power adaptor from the AC wall outlet if there is any danger of lightning striking in your area.

Keep the MAGICSTOMP away from neon signs or fluorescent lighting to prevent noise pickup.

To prevent damage and possibly electrical shock, never open the case and tamper with the internal circuitry.

Never use benzene, thinner or other volatile liquids for cleaning, as these chemicals may cause damage or discoloration to the finish. Always use a dry, soft cloth to wipe off dust and dirt.

Connections

CAUTION In order to prevent electric shock or damage to your equipment, turn OFF

the power on the guitar amp, etc., and set the MAGICSTOMPs volume to its minimum level before making any connections.

Use ONLY a Yamaha AC-10 Power Adaptor (or other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha). Using another adaptor may result in damage, overheating or fire, which can be very dangerous.

Make sure to use the recommended AC voltage as indicated on the power adaptor.

The MAGICSTOMP automatically switches ON when power is connected and supplied to the device.

Connect a guitar, bass or any line level instrument such as a synthesizer, etc., to the INPUT jack. The MAGICSTOMP can also be connected to the effect loop of an amplifier, mixer, or other similar device.

Set the INPUT LEVEL switch to match the output level of the instrument or device that is connected to the MAGICSTOMP. If the sound is distorted when the switch is set to the HIGH position, change the setting to LOW. If you feel output is low when the switch is set to the LOW position, change the setting to HIGH.

When using patches with stereo output, we recommend connecting the MAGICSTOMPs out- put jacks to a stereo device.

When connecting to a monaural device, use the OUTPUT L/MONO jack. When connecting the power adaptor to the MAGICSTOMPs AC IN jack, you can wrap the

power adaptor cord around the cord hook as shown in the illustration below (this helps keeping the plug from being accidentally pulled out).

CAUTION Dont let the cord bend sharply or kink when wrapping the cord around

the hook. An excessive bend can cut the cord or start a fire.

Try out some of the other patches The MAGICSTOMP has a total of 198 patches. 99 of those are User Patches (U01 U99) to which you can save (overwrite) data of patches that you have created. The other 99 are Preset Patches (P01 P99) which can not be overwritten with new data. You can however, edit the Preset Patches and save them in the User Patch section.

* When shipped from the factory, the MAGICSTOMPs User Patch section contains the same data as found in the Preset Patches.

Two ways to select patches When the MAGICSTOMP is shipped from the factory, its [UP/DOWN MODE] is already set for the patch selection mode. In this mode, just press the + switch to move to the next greater patch number, and press the switch to move to the next lesser patch number. Hold either switch down and the patch numbers will quickly cycle up or down in order. In this mode, the ON/OFF switch is used to switch the patch (effect) on or off.

Using the MAGICSTOMP

When the knobs position does not match the value for the selected parameter, youll need to rotate the knob until it matches the position that corresponds to the parameter value before you can change the setting. Lets rotate the DRIV knob. Before rotating the knob, its parameter name is shown in the display. [Fig. 1] When the knob is rotated, the set value (8.9) is indicated in the display, and will not change until you rotate the knob past the 3 oclock position. [Fig. 2]

Create your own sound

Use the knobs to adjust the effect The three knobs located below the display let you adjust different characteristics of the effect. The parameters that these knobs adjust, differ according to the selected patch. The name of the parameters that these knobs adjust, and the relative knob position of each of the parameters are shown on the lower half of the display. In the example shown below, the following parameter names and knob values are shown starting with the left knob.

DRIV (Drive): 8.9, MSTR (Master): 4.0, TONE: 2.8

[Fig. 1] [Fig. 2]

[Fig. 3] [Fig. 4]

After you rotate the knob past the 3 oclock position, the actual value that corresponds to the knobs position is indicated in the display. Also, the mark to the right of the patch number will change to to indicate that the parameters value has changed. [Fig. 3] Once the parameters value has been changed, the value shown in the display will reflect the posi- tion of the knob. [Fig. 4] If the knob is not moved for a few seconds, the value display will return to the parameter name display.

Create your own sound

OK, now try and edit a patch to your liking.

* Parameters for the patch(effect) can only be adjusted when the MAGICSTOMP is in its normal operating mode (when a patch is selected and the effect is switched "ON"). Parameters can not be adjusted if the effect is switched "OFF" or when the MAGICSTOMP is in the Store Mode (page 16), Name Edit Mode (page 18) or Tuner Mode (page 20).

Information on the parameters can be found in the PDF file in the accompanying CD-ROM. Look in the (Macintosh only: [International] folder ) [Manual] folder and get the [EffectListE.pdf]. This list offers descriptions on each of the effect parameters.

* Acrobat Reader is required to view the PDF file on your computer. (page 25, 27)

Could you make something you like? If you did, you can use the store operation described in the next section to save your settings in the MAGICSTOMP. If you select another patch before carrying out the store operation, or disconnect the power, all changes you made will be lost and the data will return to its original condition.

Inside the accompanying CD-ROM, youll find an editing application called Sound Editor for MAGICSTOMP that lets you use a computer to edit the patches (effects) in the MAGICSTOMP. The MAGICSTOMP has a total of 63 different effect types, that each utilize a variety of parameters in addition to the three that can be controlled with the MAGICSTOMPs three control knobs. With the Sound Editor you can change any of the effects pa- rameters as you like, to create elaborate effects. You can also assign any param- eters you like to the MAGICSTOMPs three control knobs. The Sound Editor also lets you use the patch library that is included in the accompa- nying CD-ROM and store patches you have created with your computer, in the MAGICSTOMP. We also recommend that you use the Sound Editor for MAGICSTOMP to gain a greater understanding of how the MAGICSTOMP works. Refer to page 22 for more information.

16

Storing edited patches (STORE) The MAGICSTOMP lets you store your original patches in its User Patch memory (U01-U99). After creating a patch you like, use the following procedure to store the patch.

* Patches can not be stored in the Preset Patch memory (P01-P99).

* The volume knobs setting is not stored with patch data.

The store operation takes your edited data and writes it to the destination patch number that youve selected, overwriting the old patch data with the new. Depending upon your needs, either overwrite the original patch with new data, or select another patch number to store the new data to.

To rewrite (overwrite) the original patch with new data q After youre done editing, press the [STORE] button.

PRESS[STORE]1sec appears in the lower half of the display. The destination patch number to which the patch will be stored, and the patch name (under which the data will be stored) appears on the upper half of the display.

* If the [STORE] button is pressed when a Preset Patch is currently selected, the corresponding User Patch number is automatically selected as the destination patch number for storing.

w You can also give the patch a new name. To change the name of the patch, follow steps w through r described on page 18.
