Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited Banks
Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited has four operating modes, which you choose with the MCK. Each mode corresponds to color‐coded Bank of MCK settings:
Blue (Tuning) Bank. When turned on for the first time, Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited defaults to this bank. The Blue Bank allows selecting standard tuning (e.g., E‐A‐D‐G‐B‐e) as well as any of 10 alternate tunings. The default is the most recently‐selected tuning, unless you've specified a different power‐on default (called the Instant Access Tuning) using the Red Bank's setup functions (Section 6.2, Function 1). The MCK display shows the tuning preset ID associated with the current switch position; leaving the MCK in that position for more than 300ms loads the indicated tuning preset.
Selecting a particular tuning sends signals to the RoboHeads that tune the strings automatically. The selected tuning will remain until either changed to a different Blue Bank tuning, or you switch to the Yellow Bank and choose a preset with a different tuning. For more on tuning, see section Chapter 2.
Green (Tone) Bank. Here you can select any of 10 guitar sounds by turning the MCK. The default is the sound that was selected prior to powering‐down Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited when you last used it. The MCK display shows the sound preset ID associated with the current switch position; leaving the MCK in that position for more than 200ms loads the indicated sound preset.
These presets can be the iconic guitar sounds shipped with Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited, or you can replace them with your own custom sounds by creating new sounds with the Gibson Chameleon Editor (see its dedicated manual) and transferring these to Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited.
Note that you can change sound independently of tuning by using the Green Bank to select a sound, and tuning independently of the sound by using the Blue Bank to select a tuning.
An additional 11th position, obtained by turning the MCK fully counter‐clockwise, checks the battery charge.
Yellow (Preset) Bank. This Bank stores 88 custom user presets, arranged as 8 User Banks of 11 presets. Each preset can contain its own sound, tuning, and preset ID symbol. Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited
