Nektar Pacer

This website is being rebuilt. The content on this page will be available soon.

Note: work in progress. Page content incomplete.

The Pacer contains 24 user presets: A1 to D6

A preset contains the configuration for the stompswitches, footswitches and expression pedals.

About the PRESET stompswitch:

  • The "Preset" switch is not assignable (can not be programmed).
  • The "Preset" switch is also the BACK button when navigating the Pacer menus.

Three blinking dots

Always remember to save after making changes to user presets. If you load a different preset before saving changes, they will be lost, without warning. Three blinking dots at the bottom of the 3-character display indicate that the current user preset has unsaved changes.

After switch-on:

Default preset is A1.

By default, all the factory presets have stompswitches C and D programmed as C="Prev Preset" and D="Next Preset". This can be changed if you want to use C and D for anything else.

Selecting a preset with the stompswitches:

  1. Press "Preset" for 2sec
  2. Press A/B/C/D
  3. Press 1/2/3/4/5/6

Selecting a preset with the encoder:

  1. Use the encoder to select PRSET
  2. Press the encoder
  3. Use the encoder to scroll through and select a preset
  4. Press the encoder to load the preset

Press "Preset" to go back at any time.
