We've got a USB MIDI Foot Controller on the way for those who are interested in going hands-free with the upcoming 3.0 firmware update. Find out details here.

    So can any midi foot controller be connected to the deluge once updated to 3 firmware, through the midi in port or the usb port if it is a usb midi controller like the one synthstrom are selling.
    can't wait

    What would the workflow of this be for e.g. the looping functionality?

    We'll have some video showing soon. Rohan has been busy designing a UI for effective hands free looping.

    Would Source Audio pedal work for the same results?

    Would perhaps prefer a pedal which I could set up for other midi duties as well.

    Probably, but it appears to cost 5x what the Deluge one does. If you are keen you could even make one using an Arduino board although I suspect the Deluge one isn't going to be much more once you've bought the components.

    Yep, figured that out - but perhaps I could pay a bit more to use the same device with any midi devices in the future (you can send macros aka multiple midi messages at once with the Source Audio pedal for example).

    Thing is, the Deluge one will do exactly what's needed for use with the Deluge. I'd buy that and an Arduino if you want more extended capabilities.
    Also: Take a look at this . Both units for less than the Source Audio pedal and the Bome provides a heap of extra stuff - like wifi MIDI.

    Will the foot controller be using soft switches? This would be ideal for those wanting to loop with acoustic instruments using micrphones and avoid the sound of the pedal being recorded.

    you can replace the switches with these:

    Does anybody know what midi data the footswitch sends? I like to build one myself.

    Hi Ian, is there a list of other compatible footswitches anywhere? i'm on the wait-list for the official one but got excited with the 3.0 release and bought a Line 6 FBV MKii but having battled with configuring it i don't think it's compatible (even though the Deluge recognises it on connection).

    Cheers,

    Luke

    Hi there, good folks at Synthstrom. Is there an ETA on the footswitches? I'm getting an itchy trigger finger...or toe to be more accurate.

    Would it work to use a midi footpedal through a midi hub like mio4, connected by usb to the Deluge?
    Or do you have to connect it directly to the midi port of the Deluge?

    What’s the release date for these switches?

    I wonder if these are still in the works?
    Has anybody gotten any MIDI footswitch to work correctly looping with the Deluge?

    I’ve been in contact with the manufacturers that Synthstrom are sourcing the pedals from and they are definitely coming. I’d rather buy the switch through Synthstrom as they deserve our support but it seems crazy to me to ship them from Europe to NZ to then have one shipped to me in the UK, from an ecological standpoint if nothing else. I have asked Synthstrom for an ETA both here and on the fb closed group but no response. I’m sure they have their reasons for holding out but admit to some frustration. The looping functionality is not much use to me as a guitarist without the foot switch
