Alternatively commands can be transmitted Step-By-Step. Only one command will be transmitted on each step. On the next button press, the next command will be transmitted. And so on...
At the end, the first command will be transmitted again. And so on...
If Auto Color Steps is enabled, the LED will change on each step.

Preset (PC) also known as Program Change transmits a program change PC on a midi channel Ch (1-16).
ON sends a control change CC (1-127) on Ch (1-16) with Value 127 (maximum). OFF sends exactly the same CC with Value 0 (minimum).
CC On Only always sends Value 127 on each press on CC (1-127) on Ch (1-16). This command is ideal for Tap-tempo. The corresponding LED will blink briefly.
CC On Only LED is the same but toggles the LED on each press.
CC Off Only is the opposite.
Use this if you need a value different than minimum (0) or maximum (127).
