The great GT-1 BPM
« on: November 07, 2017, 06:14:07 PM »
While developing the GT-1 MIDI Bridge in the MIDX-20 USB Host http://primovasound.com/midx_20_page2.html
it struck me how great the BPM mastering is compared to the previous GT series and Katana amps.

This time Yoshi's team (Boss Devs) added additional control to virtually all delay times and effect rates based on a system BPM on top of the normal millisecond data. Use BTS or the knobs to find these settings on top of normal time and rate values.

So if you setup a suitable BPM (Beats Per Minute) for a song (with a MIDX you can do this with BPM Tap Tempo CC# 15), you may control a lot of effects derived from this 'heart rate'. For many effects the best setting is 'Quarter Note'.

This table summarizes the parameters I've found that can be derived from BPM:
(don't consider the showed CC# as they are only available through a MIDX-20)
Got more gear than I need...and I like it!

The biggest request is "Does this support Tap Tempo with dotted 1/8th notes?"

The answer is Yes in all cases.
