View Full Version : Internal/virtual pedal?

Reading through the manual, I came acorss this virtual pedal thing. Anyone care to explain it better than the bad, bad manual explaination? Some sort of auto sweep of a CC message? I think? The idea is good, I'd wish they had some examples. It might be good for sweeping delay times, or phaser speeds for that seasick sound. Or with a pitch transposer for a Theremin sound...who knows. Anyone use it yet?

teejay's DVD covers this pretty well. (Even though it's officially for the 8, as a Pro I bought it anyway and still found it useful.....)
It's really not that complicated: You specify a trigger that starts the virtual pedal thru its range of motion. Once triggered, that range of motion occurs over the specified amount of time, and can either be a linear motion or one of the curves, or --
the range of motion can be specified as a waveform.
Having modeled the internal pedal this way -- describing how it's triggered and how it "works" -- you then assign it to control one of the many,many different parameters.
Yes, it can be used for some of the things you describe; if I recall correctly, teejay illustrates how it works by using it to add just one cycle of flange to a chorus (or something like that). The idea is that he just steps on the pedal at the beginning of the chorus, the flange occurs for just a single cycle and then stops. Something like that....
