Re: Foot Controllers.

Aight thanks Ted, dunny I wouldn’t have thought an amp stand or drum stand would be the options I’d be looking at.. It seems pretty easy to make it into your own sized “table” if you add a top plate to that amp stand :) See u guys on the fb page, seems easier to handle than this archaic invention :D

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.
