Use 2 expressions pedals on midi footswitch
« on: April 28, 2021, 05:43:02 AM »
Hello, i liked the demo with the midi footswitch FCB 1010 but you used only 1 of the expressions pedals.
Is it possible to use both expressions pedals with Pistomp ?

And well done for your great work ;)

Thanks, yeah, I needed the other treadle to hold my phone  ;)

Sure, via MIDI, I'm pretty sure you could have up to 2,032 expression pedals if you wanted (16 midi channels X 127 CC message ids).  That pertains to MIDI via the DIN jack or via USB. 

And yes, in the video, I could have used those two treadles on the FCB 1010, but I only needed to control 2 parameters and wanted to show controlling via Expression pedal.  That input, and the "Tweak" knob are analog.  The pi-Stomp ADC converts exp-pedal/tweak-knob changes to MIDI messages, so to the MOD software, all controls are just speaking MIDI.
