Stepping Through a List of Options With One Footswitch

Hi all,

what would be the best practice to make a footswitch stepping through a list of options? Such as pressing once RECORD, pressing the second time PLAY, pressing the third time STOP, and then start all over again.

This is only one example, but I have other uses I can think of.


P.S. I’m new here, so let me know if this is the wrong category. The last two days have been a blast with the Dwarf, though.


I’m not sure if it’s exactly what you are searching for, but maybe the Multi button to CV would help you out. Does it?

Not so bad, but I had trouble in the past with short/long/double press, it requires too much thinking during performance. What I eventually want to do is rapidly press a button, in which each press yields radically different sounds.

I think i understand. Maybe it is possible to have that function on a step sequencer? So that one push = one step in the sequence? This would imply the option to choose number of steps in the sequence. I don’t think the Mod midi sequencers do that, but you might be able to find one that does using Cardinal. But that’s a little fiddly. It would cool to have it as CV plugin. A “CV Sequencer”. Just a quick “morning coffee before work” thought. :wink:


sounds intriguing, I’ll have to investigate…
