So I have A TimeFactor with me and a PitchFactor on the way. I was wondering if it is possible to use an aux switch for both pedals. Does the signal from the aux switch go through midi?
Well, you have various options. You can connect an aux switch to one pedal and configure that pedal to transmit MIDI program change messages to the other pedal. So, you could in that way change the presets of both with an AUX switch. You could also just use the footswitches on one pedal and configure that pedal to transmit MIDI program changes to the other pedal without an AUX switch.
When using MIDI, can you turn on a preset to one without turning a preset on to the other pedal?Show More...
Generally speaking, yes, but there are different ways to go about this. If you want one pedal to send MIDI program change messages to a second pedal, the second pedal is always going to be receiving program change messages from the first pedal, and so, it's always going to be trying to change its presets when the first pedal changes its presets. You can save some of the presets on the second pedal in bypass so that the second pedal turns itself off sometimes. And you can also organize the second pedals presets list so that it has the same preset in multiple different preset positions. So, even if the first pedal changes the second pedals preset, it still will have the same preset… It depends on what the song list is you have, and what you want the pedals to do as you go from one song to the next.
