HX Stomp Switching

Recommended Posts

Hi again guys, I have a question:

 

Got my ‘baby’ board set up for vocal and guitar with the Stomp at its heart for the guitar FX (photo). As mentioned in a previous topic, I have FS4 & 5 acting as Page < and Page > (the two-button switcher under the Stomp). Everything is working fine. I have a dedicated Wah effect working separately from the Stomp. Question is about whether there’s a way to utilise FS4/5 when needed AND Exp1 (to access wahs, whammys, etc). Previously, Phil_M helpfully suggested a DMC MIDI pedal through which Exp1 could be accessed. I could go down that route if necessary. My question is - could a simple, bespoke, single button A/B switcher with TRS output allow switching between the stereo signal from FS4/5 and a mono (tip) signal from an expression pedal for Exp1 function?

Cheers,

I’ve answered my own question: No! Lol Function is Exp/FS, so when it’s set to FS, you can’t access Exp! Doh!

 

However, I think I misunderstood Phil_M’s suggestion of the DMC MIDI pedal. Presumably one could attach an expression pedal to the DMC and output MIDI info from the DMC to the Stomp to control Exp1 parameters? If so, would this necessarily attach only to the 5-pin MIDI in Din on the side of the Stomp, or could it attach to the USB port on the back as well?

 

Thanks again,

 

Andy

I’ve not tried it myself but I believe you can connect a single-button footswitch and an expression pedal simultaneously with a TRS-to-two-TS cable. 

Since you are using the FS4/5 only for page left and right (presumably for changing footswitch modes), am thinking you can forego one of them as the page cycles back (I think).
