Use the Edit Select knob to select MIDI Channel and use the Value knob to set it to 1 (or any other channel that is not used by other devices).
Use the Edit Select knob to select MIDI Out Filter and use the Value knob to set it to All (or any other option that suits your needs).
Use the Edit Select knob to select MIDI In Filter and use the Value knob to set it to All (or any other option that suits your needs).
Use the Edit Select knob to select Local Control and use the Value knob to set it to Off (this will prevent feedback loops when using the software).
