Get a leg up on MIDI production and performance!

The MIDI Solutions Pedal Controller accepts an effect pedal (or any potentiometer connected to a 1/4" stereo phone plug) as an input and generates continuous MIDI data based on its position. The Pedal Controller may be inserted inline at any point in the MIDI data stream, allowing you to send continuous controller information to any device in your MIDI setup.

The MIDI Solutions Pedal Controller can be programmed to send most types of continuous MIDI messages, including Aftertouch, Pitch Bend, Control Change, or even System Exclusive messages with a single variable byte (to control specific synth parameters). The MIDI channel is programmable as are the minimum and maximum values transmitted.

The MIDI Solutions Pedal Controller accurately tracks the position of the pedal or potentiometer connected to it. If the pedal is moved very slightly, the Pedal Controller will send an update even if its position has only changed by a single value. Many cheaper control wheels or knobs only update themselves every 2 or every 4 values, resulting in zipper noise.

Another unique feature of the Pedal Controller is its ability to add a variable amount of curvature to the response of the effect pedal. This allows you to correct for pedals with nonlinear responses, or to add greater response at one end of the pedal compared to the other.

The Pedal Controller is programmed by sending it MIDI System Exclusive messages. Once programmed, its settings are retained even after power is removed.

The Pedal Controller is MIDI-powered and requires no batteries or power supply to operate. A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the unit is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.

Comments about MIDI Solutions Continuous MIDI Data Pedal Controller:

It is very expensive considering what it does but it does do its job well. I have used it with the m-audio expression pedal as well of the yamaha fc-7. Niether pedal required programming to work perfectly out of the box

Comments about MIDI Solutions Continuous MIDI Data Pedal Controller:

This product really functions well. Yes you need to program it, but the documentation is clear and the process is pretty painless. Plus it really has alot of settings. You can tell the quality when you look at the box, its real sturdy and works exactly as it should.

Does exactly what is claimed for it

By Andrew Koenig

from Gillette, NJ

Comments about MIDI Solutions Continuous MIDI Data Pedal Controller:

Plug in an expression pedal (I'm using a Roland EV-5) and you get a MIDI controller. As shipped, it generates signals on CC#7, but it's programmable.Programming is why I gave it only 4.0 for features: There are NO external controls; the only way to program it is to send the appropriate MIDI signals to it. Which means you pretty much need a computer. This behavior is exactly as described, but it means you can't reprogram it easily in the field unless you have a laptop handy.Also, it is powered ONLY from the MIDI device feeding it. If your MIDI setup doesn't happen to supply power, you'll need to buy Midi Solutions' power supply, which I think is available only from them.These facts together mean that the controller is more expensive than one might expect, hence my 3.0 on value. Nevertheless, it behaves exactly as advertised and I am not aware of any other product that will readily substitute for it.Ya pays yer money and ya takes your choice. It does what I need so I bought it.
