To actually use a Breath Controller (Yamaha BC-10)  you should first adjust the two trimpots in the headset to match the following diagram [breath control pdf], then train it. Now train your BC-10 BreathController for optimum response. To “Train” the response of the breath controller do the following:
1.  Depress the GLOBAL EDIT footswitch and hit rimPad22 twice.
2.  The trapKAT will sound a continuous beep.  You should respond by blowing through the breath controller and then hitting a pad.
3.  The trapKAT will again sound a continuous beep.  You should now hit a pad again without blowing.
4.  The breath controller is now trained! To assign what you want the Breath Controller to do simply depress the GLOBAL EDIT footswitch and hit rimPad21 several times scrolling through your options.  Your options include: PitchBend Up (On the Program Channel) PitchBend Down (On the Program Channel) Expression (On the Program Channel) Sustain (On the Program Channel) Off (Breath Controller not being used). See p.46-47 in the trapKAT manual.
