Need help with MIDI setup

0 comments

Hi all -

 

My rig in progress is shown in a picture below, along with a diagram. Since this is my first time setting up a MIDI pedalboard, I could use some advice.

 

My specific concerns are

1. I'm currently planning to use the MIDI Baby as a tap tempo with LED, and that would send MIDI clock through the MC6 to everything else. Is this dumb, considering the BOSS RC-10R is both drum machine and looper? Should that own the tempo?

2. I'm planning to go out of the HX Stomp to the BOSS RC-10R, by using a one control MIDI cable (https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MIDIHamCab30--one-control-midi-hammer-cable-30cm) and a female MIDI to male TRS cable (https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MIDI-miniTRS--1010music-midi-adapter-male-3.5mm-trs-to-female-5-pin-din). Do I need more than just this cable connection? A "MIDI box"?

 

If anyone has any thoughts on how to better set this up, it would be much appreciated.

  • Installed the new firmware cant get midi monitor to work. Im new to all this so be nice. I downloaded and installed the new editor. I see there are 2 source files below the main download. do I need to do something with those?
  • Hi Morningstar ! My 1st post here. I have just ordered a MC6 MK II and I will need to attach a 3 Button Auxiliary Pedal with it. My local music store has one of these Digitech FS3X 3 Button Pedals in store ... my question is:- => will the Digitech FS3X 3 Button Pedal work as an external 3 button auxiliary swtich with the MC6 MK II (?) => if so, do I need to do anything special / different for the MC6 MK II to correclty recognise and use it (?) Thanks, Ben
  • Hi all, looking to purchase MC6 but first wanted to validate use case before making the full purchase, hoping anyone here has insights. The goal is to use Exp Foot Pedal to control various assigned CC on a synth. Say A set to CC for Filter and switch B set to CC for Sustain. My desire is to activate A, foot pedal to open filter, activate B and foot pedal leaves filter alone and controls Sustain. However reading manual, I am unclear: 1. With switch set for exp instead of toggle, is it correct that you still have to step on switch to begin accounting exp pedal input? 2. If A and B both set to exp pedal input, are they always both active or can one be disengaged by toggle off? Appreciate y'alls input.
