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 Off Only is the opposite.
Use this if you need a value different than minimum (0) or maximum (127).
