Pedal Controller

Pcontrol_on

Flexible Pedal Control Unit:
PControl_Controls
Build your own Pedalboard Controller !

  • processor controlled
  • easy-to-read display
  • 32 banks of 4 patches each
  • 8 Loops with optional Bi-Amping
  • Input board with linear driver and Tuner-Out
  • Allows to build a reduced-parts-version:
    • 4 Loops instead of 8
    • without linear driver
    • without Tuner-Out
    • 10 instead of 32 banks

This is a huge project with so many possibilities for you!

Upcomming (still some weeks to go):

  • 12/16 Loops extension board
  • MIDI interface (either activate stored presets or control loops directly via MIDI program change commands)

Update on the progress of V2.1 and V3.0:

Revision 2.1:

  • Manual mode to be able to switch the effect loops directly – in addition to just retrieving the stored presets.
  • 16 loop extension board to control up to 16 loops in total

Revision 3.0:

All of 2.0 and 2.1 and

  • Up to 16 switches to control the unit. (Not sure yet how they will be used. Using 8 instead of 4 switches for the manual mode seem to be one idea)
  • MIDI interface to control the unit
  • – control the PCV3.0 from another device (Like the Line6 HD 500)  to activate presets or control single loops
  • – use SysEx to save and restore/migrate the programmed configurations
  • – send Program Change messages to control other devices
