H9 with expression pedal and 3-button possible?

November 14, 2017 - 09:46 am

i'd love to be able to use a 3-way foot switch simultaneously with an expression pedal.  is there any workaround that would allow these two to work together?  right now i'm using an expression pedal with a footswitch that only lets me scroll in one direction which is a huge compromise.

if i can't use a 3-way simultaneously with an expression pedal, could i use the expression pedal in combination with say, a Tech 21 MIDI Mouse which is essentially a 3-way, minus the hot button?

i simply can't navigate my presets efficiently with single-direction scrolling, and i don't want to give up the expression pedal to gain preset scrolling efficiency that comes with a 3-way foot switch.

any other alternatives i haven't thought of?

The H9 has a combined AUX/EXP input, which limits you to either 3 switches or a pedal and one switch.

If (as you do) want more that this, I'd recommend MIDI switches or pedals.

So I can keep my existing expression pedal and just add a midi switcher for scrolling?

You mean the Barn3 OX9? You can either use the two switches without an expression pedal or you can use one switch with an expression pedal.
