Thank you for your reply
I don’t have the Mod Duo yet so I cannot tamper with it or play around with its functions. I had already noticed the Midi Learn function which is awesome. I’m waiting for them to ship the Mod Duo to me in august.
I don’t know how familiar you are with midi but sending different midi messages and assigning information on which button controls what is exactly what it is all about.
I currently use the Peak FCB8N midi controller and use it to control two pedals. The Line6 M9 and also the Nova Drive. And it is as easy as assigning the M9 to channel 1 and the Nova Drive to channel 2 on the midi message. That’s how you know which messages goes where. So there would be no confusion as you mention.
I don’t know how the programmers do it but calling up different pedalboards (scenarios) on the M9 is very easy. Devices with midi normally come with a list of what message to send to call up certain things.
I would imagine that the Mod Duo would have no problem in doing the same thing. Although I am not a programmer so I have no clue on how to do that
But I’m hoping that the wonderful guys at Mod Devices will figure that out.
The problem with having only 2 buttons to control your…lets say…50 different sounds (pedalboards) is that we singers/guitarists need to call upon a sound (pedalboard) at any given time during a song and more often than not without looking. I for example change from one sound to the next maybe 5-10 times during a song a not always just to the next in line. I need to be able to jump from one sound to the next and then to a different sound right after that.
So having a controller with 12 buttons on demand instead of only 2 on the mod duo is essential.
My current setup is fine but I saw the Mod Duo as perfect for the exact same thing but with the option of much more easily creating the sounds (as the interface is world class) and as a bonus, loading my custom guitar sounds from my DAW into the Mod Duo. Create my wall of sound in my living room
So that’s why I’m trying to create an awereness about the many guitarist out there (like myself) that need to have ready at least 5-12 sounds at the touch of a button (on a separate midi controller) at any given moment. In hopes of the Mod Duo team will include that feature.
I would imagine that it would not be that difficult to implement. As they seem to have many ohter much more complicated things going on this awesome device
Well, Im off to my gig for the evening (add me on snapchat: “casiofatso” if you want to see how I use my current midi device).
Over to you kind sirs at the Mod Device crew…Do you have anything going on regarding this issue Gianfranco?
