Deferred Program Change 
  
 
 
25 
When you switch programs, the Wildfire normally 
changes immediately to the program shown on the 
display. However, in some situations—especially when 
playing live—you may want the ability to scroll through 
program numbers while remaining in the current 
program setting. For example, let’s say you’re soloing in 
a program that gives you strong distortion and fat 
chorus. If you want to continue playing while you scroll 
up to a program that provides a clean rhythm sound, 
you’ll have to be in deferred program-change mode.  
 
 
Enabling & Using Deferred Program Change 
1. 
As you turn on the Wildfire, hold down one or 
both of the Program Up/Program Down buttons. 
Letters will scroll by on the display, spelling the 
word “deferred.”  
2. 
While in PLAY mode, use the Program Up or 
Program Down button or the VALUE knob to 
change the program number. The Wildfire will 
remain in the program it was in before you 
changed the program value. Also, the display will 
flash the digit that is different from the currently 
selected program. For example, if you are playing 
in program D5 and scroll up to program D7, the 7 
will flash. If you scroll up to F2, both digits will 
flash. 
3. 
Once the display shows the program number you 
desire, press the Program Up and Down buttons 
together or step on both footswitches to confirm 
the program change. The display will stop flashing 
and the Wildfire will switch to the new program. 
4. 
To return to normal program-change mode, turn 
off the Wildfire and turn it back on without 
holding down any buttons or footswitches. 
Deferred program-
change mode is 
especially useful when 
you’re performing and 
want to switch easily 
between a rhythm 
setting and a lead 
setting as you continue 
playing. 
You may also use the 
optional footswitches to 
change program 
numbers. 
See “Arranging 
Programs for 
Performance” in 
chapter 6 for an 
alternative to deferred 
program-change mode.
