merthurian posted a topic in POD 2.0, POD XT, Pocket POD, FloorPODsHi I'm trying to use a midi controller to control a floor pod plus. I have a midi controller that I use with my trusty Zoom G9.2tt. It works perfectly. Zero latency. When I use it to send my CC signals to the pod plus, there is some terrible latency .. over 500ms I'd say. Let me point out that the signal goes straight from the controller to the pod .. there is no computer involved. It's just standard midi. Any ideas what could be causing this? Cheers dudes.

I can also send brief CC expressions. But when I send expression messages the latency seems proportional to the duration of the expression. More info. I'm using a custom made midi controller which I can program to behave how I want. Basically it's an arduino with an accelerometer and pressure pads. It sends a midi CC value for each axis of the accelerometer plus one per pad (7 CCs in all). My Zoom pedal can quite happily sink all 7 CC mesages every 5ms with no bottleneck and apply the expression in real time. Can anyone point me toward any info regarding the floor pod plus's response times to CC mesages? Am I hoping for too much? I would very much like to achieve realtime control of as many aspects of the pod as possible.
