Hi, i just bought a BOSS ES-8 Switcher and I´m trying to figure out how to control my timefactor and space stompboxes, I´m new into midi and I have a gig tonight so I ´d appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

Give each pedal and your switcher their own midi address in the settings menu eg

  • Switcher #1
  • Tf  #2
  • Space #3

Cable from the switcher to say the TF MIDI In and set the TF in the settings to MIDI Thru, connect a cable from the MIDI Out/Thru to the MIDI In on your space.

Build a preset on the boss and add the midi address of the pedal you want to use and  the pedal patch number to your boss preset. it is that simple.

Cool switcher but using a switcher comes with its difficultys as well. If you have a fixed set list its brilliant just arrange everything sequential. We are pretty adhoc and I have 4 or 5 standard sound presets that I use and the rest is just switching everything on and off form one place. Trying it out on a gig will get you well and truly wound up before the nights out so make sure you can switch everything individually on and off in one bank.
