Quote from: Elantric on September 16, 2023, 09:46:31 AMIts going through customs in USA -that can take 3 to 10 days. They typicaly hand off to USPS you can search using the Taiwan tracking number here https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfirmAction_input
Quote from: Elantric on September 16, 2023, 09:57:10 AMThe curious thing is the expansion 6 or 10 button TRS wired floor controllers are resistor ladder network boxes. Many have used similar type resistor ladder network switch boxes to direcly connect to Expression Pedal inputs on many brands of gear.For example when used with GR-55, there are custom programmed patches where the expression pedal "pans" among 4 different GR-55 tones. Substitute a passive resistor ladder network switch box for an expression pedal would allow direct access to the 4 tones using 4 switches.I figure the wireless versions add a wireless communiction board.( i ordered the Graviton M1 with the small wireless dual joystick controller + the 10 button wireless foot controller They explain how this works in the Graviton M1 Owners Manual https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0718/9869/3949/files/Luminite_Graviton_M1_User_Manual_3.0.pdf?v=1692435852
QuoteLAXU WROTE> Control M1 using The XY controller, from the touchscreen of the Graviton or using any MIDI footswitch controller.Think of the Graviton as a "MIDI control hub" device. You could program it so that if you use anything you want to send it MIDI PC 1, just by receiving that command it could toggle 5 different MIDI capable pedals each to their own preset, bypass states etc. Kind of like what Snapshots do on Helix or Scenes on Fractal. That's obviously just the tip of the iceberg for what you can do.Could you do that with just a Morningstar MIDI controller with footswitches? Yeah, but you won't have a wireless, touchscreen device that you can put wherever you want and use to program the whole thing, you won't have a little wireless joystick controller you can put anywhere you want either etc.Above I described how I want to use it to control for example secondary parameters on my Strymons. Since Strymons can also send MIDI CCs on preset changes, I can set the Graviton to track a particular parameter so if I change a preset on the pedal, the Graviton display also shows what that tracked parameter is on the current preset. No more hidden secondary params. I plan to expand this so that ideally I could use it to show preset parameters for a lot of stuff, considering the pedals don't have LCD screens to indicate what is happening in each preset.On top of that the preset info alone like "which preset is each pedal using right now" is useful. So it will act sort of like a little "what's going on" display.This will go on a desktop MIDI controllable board and I'll use the XY controller at first to switch presets and maybe later on add a MIDI footswitch thing.With MIDI usually the possibilities are pretty limitless and it's more about having the right controller(s) for yours
QuoteLuminite wrote>Yeah, @laxu summed it up perfectly.I was gigging extensively with my band, and many of the songs required 4-5 different patches, with some needing constant switching between verses. As a result, I found myself staring down at my feet most of the time, not to mention the many instances of missed solo patch changes when I wandered too far from my spot and couldn't get back in time or risked tripping over cables on stage.This system solves these mobility problems as it is mainly designed as a live performing tool. However, it works great in home studios as well, saving tons of space on / under the desk. It also saves my back from bending down and twisting knobs while untangling cable mess.In the demo video on the first page, you can see the tiny XY Controller attached to my guitar. All the patch changes happen when my fingers flick the switches, which isn't much different from using the 5-way pickup selector or mini switches.It does take some practice to perform the switching while playing smoothly, but once you get the hang of it, it feels quite easy and natural. I can switch rapidly, usually faster than tap dancing in many cases.If the guitar-mounted XY controller is not your jam, the Graviton M1 works with almost any footswitch pedal it connects to. I also have 6-footswitch and 10-footswitch extension pedals coming very soon.
