Re: Foot Controllers.


Well, since this is the LD list (not FaceBook) I cannot send pictures.

But here is a link to one of the kind of amp stands I am talking about:


The adjustable supports that hold the amp at an angle can be taken off, 
and turned around 180˚.

When you do that, it would hold the amp level, rather than at an angle.

But since you want to hold a rack bag that's deeper than the shallow depth 
of a small combo amp, those back bars forming the vertical part of the "L" 
need to be sawn off.

This is fairly easy to do with any hacksaw . . . or even a dremmel tool.

What sort of rack bag you put on top of it is up to you.

I actually use a big 5-space rack bag and 16 inches deep like this one:


But if you don't need that much storage space, a 2- or 3-space, 16 inch 
deep bag would do just as well . . . much like this one:


Or, if a "bag" is not secure or travel worth for you there are plastic 
rack "cases" as well in similar sizes.

I use the big bag because all of the zippered pouches are useful for 
holding things.

I use my laptop to run MaxMSP and I use a bunch of Roland EV-5 pedals to 
control the parameters of my complicated performance patch.
