midi control of footswitches doesn't work reliably
by p8guitar on 2012-09-16 11:53:02

I used to switch the effects of the pod x3 live on and off with midi CCs sent from Ableton Live, but I cannot switch the effects of the pod hd500 on and off reliably this way.

I'm not sure if the hd500 footswitches reacts to the value (like CC51 with value 0 would switch FS1 off, and value 128 would switch on), it kind of toggles randomly - sometimes it works, sometimes not.

Yep, you basically have described the current behaviour of the Pod footswitches with Midi.   Currently you can send any value to the Pod within the CC message and it will  simply toggle to the opposite state.  The midi convention is as you say (0-63 for off, 64-127 for on).   If you want to see that implemented on the Pod can I suggest that you raise a feature request at the link here and hope that Line 6 are listening.  http://line6.com/company/contact/productfeedback/
