QuoteWhy not make it able to send MIDI CC messages? Then you could control any parameter.
QuoteUsing MIDI continuous control commands, the Whammy's expression pedal position can be remotely controlled. MIDI CC11 adjusts the expression pedal position. A value of 0 on MIDI CC11 corresponds to a toe up position and a value of 127 corresponds to a toe down position.
Quote from: thebrushwithin on January 08, 2016, 09:39:05 AMPraying this is not crazy expensive! I think having this in combination with the StrongArm sustainer (hopefully out this year), will be a must have.
Quote from: ericar123 on January 09, 2016, 06:01:22 AMCouldn't this same thing be done with a pot hooked up to a piece of plastic for the whammy bar and then wired to a stereo plug and plugged into the VG99 expression pedal jack? We already have a 13 pin cord going to our guitar . Another cord wouldn't be too much trouble.
QuoteHave you looked at the Aescher resonators? They might be a decent option for you if KMI doesn't come out with the Strong Arm this year.
QuoteIsn't that gonna sound a bit odd?
Quote from: thebrushwithin on January 11, 2016, 11:25:52 AMThanks! I was not familiar with the Aeschers. I'm good for now, with Fernandes, Sustainiacs, and a Moog EM1, but very interested in the way the StrongArm works, especially, if I customize a "FrankenStrat". This whammy looks awesome.
Quote from: Smash on January 12, 2016, 07:11:28 AMBeen thinking about Virtual jeff a bit more and the thing that makes whammy sound like whammy is the fact the strings detune at different rates as the bar goes down - VJ seems to be saying all strings go at same rate down to a preset minimum. Isn't that gonna sound a bit odd?
Quote from: Smash on January 11, 2016, 06:20:43 AMA pot that centres itself? so like a Playstation/Xbox analog stick? I'm already waiting for the life hack....
Quote from: Now_And_Then on January 11, 2016, 03:05:47 AM "You can select exactly what pitch you reach at the end of a bend, up or down." I dunno about this. I don't always know in advance what I'm going to do with the whammy bar. I might go 25 cents and then go a whole tone on one note, or 25 cents on one note and then a whole tone on the next note, or a few notes later. Or I might do one and not the other. If I need to decide in advance on the ultimate target of the bend, I would feel very constricted.
Quote from: mooncaine on January 09, 2016, 01:50:56 PMNope, I tried it.
QuoteVance, what pedal are you using for that?
Quote from: vanceg on January 13, 2016, 07:44:35 PMPerhaps consider this: your normal whammy bar ALWAYS constrains you to exactly what pitch is at the end of it's travel - There is always an upper and lower limit to the pitch you can produce due to the physics of your whammy bar. You just sometimes choose to only bend it a little, and sometimes divebomb a moment later.... why would using the VJ be any different? Couldn't you set it to pitch shift 1 oct and then only wiggle the VJ whammy bar a little tiny bit, thus shifting 25 cents? You may be onto something if the resolution of the whammy bar mechanism isn't very high...but from my brief discussions with the manufacturer, they are saying it's very high resolution....so.... I suspect you could set it to a "wide" range and then just manipulate the bar a little tiny bit to get a warbling effect.
