Re: AB/Y Switch

That doesn't work

I've tried every possible combination of things to do this. There's the $700 solution in the Moog MP 201. Unnecessarily bulky if all you want to do is what u just said.

Then there's the midi solutions 3 box chain of pedal controller/foot switch/midi event processor,.. That worked but was almost as expensive as the Moog solution and not less bulky at the end of the day.

I dreamed of a pedal that spit out midi and had a switch to go between the 2 cc's but couldn't find anything elegant... Until...

I ended up with a brilliant solution from disaster area designs. He made me a pedal, similar to a wah pedal but much lighter, with a push button switch on the side to switch between cc1 and cc2. He wanted to put a switch in like a wah toe switch, but I didn't think that worked in practice since then you would be forced to leave your exp at max every time you switched. I couldn't be happier with the result and I think anyone who wanted to simply control a line 6 m series box would be equally happy.

It has midi in and passes midi clock thru to the out port.


Here's a pic of mine. You can get different colors.

Anyone know if it would be possible to run an _expression_ pedal output to an A/B/Y switch and use a single pedal for two parameter jacks?  I was thinking of trying to use a single line 6 pedal for both inputs, assigning one to the looper and one channel to the effects.
