How to display paramter info for a stored program

The way to display a stored parameter value is to turn the local
control off. This stops the A-Station from responding to its front
panel directly. Instead, any changes you make are transmitted as midi
messages. Usually the local control is turned off to enable a MIDI
device to be used in a full MIDI loop with a sequencer - it avoids a
unit from receiving two change messages, one directly and one via MIDI.

However, if you set the A-Station local control to off and do not route
generated MIDI data back into the A-Station, when you make a change
from the front panel, the stored parameter value will be displayed.
Remember to turn the local control back on once you have seen all the
values you need otherwise you will not be able to control the A-Station
properly - you will not be able to change patches for example. See page
50 in the user manual for a full description of local control.
