Using the stompboxes as midicontrollers

Hello, i'm waiting for my modfactor to arrive, and i already have a timefactor on my board. so i got this idea, that it would be really cool if you could connect those two pedals via midi (TF midi out to MF midi in, and MF midi out to TF midi in), and then have the opportunity to use all six footswitches for choosing presets. so you would have instant access to 6 presets. wouldnt this be possible? that way, i at least wouldnt need to buy an extra midicontroller, since 6 presets are most often enough for a song. anyways.... thx so far for your great support! mads

I believe you could cause some problems or not/erratic responsive behaviour since you are creating a MIDI loop. Better using a dedicated master MIDI control for safe...control!

cheers

 USB is just a computer serial format on which MIDI data are exchanged. It doesn't matter....you still have a MIDI loop.
