Solutions Footswitch Controller can be programmed to generate MIDI
messages and perform MIDI
functions via a footswitch or contact closure.
Solutions Footswitch Controller provides a 1/4" phone jack
input for connection to a footswitch or contact closure which can be used to trigger MIDI
events (for eight footswitch inputs in a single rack
space unit, see the MIDI
). Triggered MIDI
events are merged with incoming MIDI
messages and sent to the MIDI
output of the Footswitch Controller.
Triggered event types are programmable and include:
- Control Change
- Pitch Bend
- Program Change
- System Exclusive
Other functions include:
- Program Change INC/DEC
- Tap Tempo
- Note-on Filter
and Footswitch Toggle parameters are selectable on/off.
of the footswitch can be determined automatically on power-up, or programmed to normally-open or normally-closed.
The Footswitch Controller is programmed by sending it MIDI
System Exclusive messages (see FAQs - Programming). This can be done easily with the Processors Programming Tools software. Once programmed, its settings are retained even after power
is removed. The Footswitch Controller can be reprogrammed with new settings as often as needed.
The Footswitch Controller is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries
supply to operate with most MIDI
products (see FAQs - Power
and FAQs - LED
for more information). A MIDI
lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI
data passes through it.
