Custom mappings can be saved as a Profile which can be loaded and swapped out depending on your current rig. For example, if you have a Blackstar Silverline Deluxe amplifier you could use Custom mode to create a profile for your own personal footswitch set. Switches 1-3 could change your patches, for instance, a clean crunch and lead, and switches 4-6 could stomp on and off your in-built modulation and delay effects, or even switch other external MIDI pedals that you may have on your pedalboard. Connect an expression pedal to give yourself a volume pedal for swells, or creative effects like controlling the level of a delay.

“The Live Logic controller has made a huge improvement to my live guitar workflow, creating ideas, looping, applying effects and more can be achieved without taking my hands off the guitar.”

There are two modes: Patch and Custom. Patch mode sets up the footswitches to send MIDI Program Change messages. Switches 1-4 send Program Change messages, and 5 and 6 will Bank up and Bank down, allowing access to 127 different patches. You can even set whether they should be arranged as 0-127 or 1-128 depending on the type of equipment you’re connecting to.

When in Custom mode, all 6 switches can be individually configured to any type of MIDI message you need, whether that’s Program Change for switching patches, Control Change for changing individual parameters, Note for triggering samples or Clock for synchronising the tempo of multiple time-based gear. There are also two expression pedal inputs for continuous control of MIDI parameters.

Message types include:

PC Changing patch
CC Controlling any parameter
Note Used to play notes or trigger samples
Clock Used to synchronise all tap tempo BPMs to be the same

Endless possibilities with USB
