"Stutter" effect

So, I haven't tried this yet, but I plan to and if it works it will be pretty cool...  (if it doesn't, I guess I'll have to start it as a suggestion on the Idea thing).

 

JHS makes a pedal that they call the stutter (or something like that) and it is a momentary killswitch.  Basically, you can tap the switch on this pedal and it kills the signal until you let go, so you can tap a patter and it will "stutter" to that pattern.  I was thinking that I might be able to set up a footswitch on the HX effects to do the same effect (have it control the position value of the volume pedal effect with the level 100 normally and have it go to 0 when depressed).  What ya think?

It works. Put a volume block set to 0 and assign a footswitch (momentary) to turn the block on.  normal state for the block should be off. You can play around where this will be in your patch. In the beginning of your chain, you'd get some spillover of post effects like reverb etc or at the very end, a very abrupt kill switch.

So, I tried this out last night, and it works like a charm.  

 

Set up a volume pedal at the end of the chain, then in controller assignment set up a footswitch as momentary and have the minimum volume be 100 and the maximum 0.  Then when  you tap the footswitch you can use it as a stutter/ killswitch/ ect.  Very cool.

thats cool. I tried it that way at first and got kind of a noticeable ramp up and down of the volume. try a volume 'block' in lieu of the pedal set to 0 and set bypass to on/off via momentary if you want a square wave kind of attack and decay profile....Cheers.
