MC6 hold function?

1 comment

HX Stomp+MC6 user.

I have a switch set to turn on and off the reverse delay and it’s set to 40% mix. I’d like to be able to hold my foot on the same switch and send it to 100% mix while holding and back to 40% mix when released. Doable?

You can do it though it’s a bit convoluted. Note you can’t do this on the HX Stomp short of using 2 switches and I am hard put to imagine you could do it with other midi controllers though you might. The trick is to use Actions that the MC6 will recognize as being independent of one other.


In the example CC#20 is used to turn the Stomp block on and off. And CC#21 is used to control the block’s parameter where the min and max have been set accordingly. It’s also important that Preset Toggle be Off in the MC6 preset as the toggle is being controlled by a Toggle Preset message. Also note the Pos values in the messages.


MSG1 - Action: Release, Type: CC, CC#: 20, CC Value: 127, Channel: 1, Pos: 1

MSG2 - Action: Release, Type: CC, CC#: 20, CC Value: 0, Channel: 1, Pos: 2

MSG3 - Action: Release, Type: Toggle Preset, Pos: Both

MSG4 - Action: Long Press, Type: CC, CC#: 21, CC Value: 127, Channel: 1, Pos: 2

MSG5 - Action: Long Press Release, Type: CC, CC#: 21, CC Value: 0, Channel: 1, Pos: 2

  • I'm not sure what I'm missing here. I set preset D as follows: action: press type: pc scroll up slot: 1 lower limit: 0 upper limit: 10 midi channel: 1 increment: yes Looking at the midi monitor, every time I press the D switch, it sends PC 0. It seems like increment isn't working. What am I missing here?
  • Hi, Im using an MC6 linked to an Elektron Analog Heat Mk2 Running 3.4.1 and 3.4.2beta do the same Using an EV 30 dual expression pedal. I've set the bank so that the expression pedal controls 2 CC messages. #12 for Drive and #74 for filter frequencey What I'm trying to do is set footswitch A to toggle the message to control Filter on/off, and footswitch D to do the same for drive However, after saving it and trying out the pedal. The first message will be triggered after pressing Preset A (filter) , but Pressing press B (wont control drive) Also, after saving preset A with msg1. when I press the button for preset B, save it with msg 2, then press the button for preset A again, msg 2 is written for preset 1. Sometime the Toggle Prosition is also changed from Expression 1 to 2. Help...I've followed the blog post and im doing everything correct so why is this happening.
