MIDI controller pedal to control DT amp?
by Stueyd on 2013-04-19 12:08:01

Following continuing frustration on getting my HD500 to reliably get the sounds I want from my DT25 it got me thinking...

As everything on the DT is configurable via MIDI and people on this forum have even written apps to control the amps, surely it must be possible to program a MIDI pedal board such as this...

???

What do you reckon? From the product description it sounds to me like you should be able to program the pedal to send the required codes?

Has anyone tried using something like this and was it successful?

All I really want to do is get a good amp sound and be able to save it so that I can retrieve it via a pedal switch.

I wrote an app to configure the amp, and I can tell you that the text in the last link is encouraging.

You need to be able to send specific MIDI Control Change Commands as specified in this Line 6 doc:

Although it sounds very promising, I wouldn't be sure until I read a manual that described the method to store (and a method to send) each command.




The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
