Provides a 1/4" phone jack input for connection to a footswitch or contact closure which can be used to trigger MIDI events
The MIDI Solutions Dual Footswitch Controller provides a 1/4" stereo phone jack input for connection to an external dual footswitch or two contact closures which can be used to trigger MIDI events. Triggered MIDI events are merged with incoming MIDI messages and sent to the MIDI output of the Dual Footswitch Controller.
Triggered event types are programmable and include:
Other functions include:
Program Change INC/DEC
MIDI Echo and Footswitch Toggle parameters are selectable on/off. The Polarity of each footswitch can be determined automatically on power-up, or can be programmed to normally-open or normally-closed. It's also possible for the Dual Footswitch Controller to send out the state of its footswitches immediately on power-up rather than waiting for each to be depressed.
The Dual Footswitch Controller is programmed by sending it MIDI System Exclusive messages (see FAQs - Programming). This is easily done with the MIDI Solutions Programming Tools software. Once programmed, its settings are retained even after power is removed. The Dual Footswitch Controller can be reprogrammed with new settings as often as needed.
The Dual Footswitch Controller is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most MIDI products (see FAQs - Power and FAQs - LED for more information). A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.
