Re: Ready to dump Repeater

have you tried assigning two CC/PC messages to one pedal, one to
Up Loop and one to Record/Play?

Re: Ready to dump RepeaterHi, Mark:

Yes, that does indeed work (MIDI for Loop Up & Down) and
Digitech for Play. I'm thinking of spinning a pie plate on a
stick in my mouth while I play guitar and 'tap dance'  as well.
Hehehe...Too bad Ed Sullivan isn't still alive.

'gards, Butch

  I've had success using a Behringer FCP1010 to send loop up and
down info, and then use the Digitech FS300 to cue up a play or
record function.  Seems to work fine, although a little clumsey.
I've not tried to make the Behringer do it all yet.

    Man, I tell ya. The Repeater is a nice unit. Except it's
foot pedal controls (both with a three-button Digitech and a
MIDI controller) leave a lot to be desired. The EDP leaves it in
the dust in that department.

    I haven't been able to change loops without using my hands
since I got the thing. I'm on my second MIDI pedal. I thought my
original somewhat archaic Digitech PDS-type was not the best
device to use and since sold it. I purchased a Fender Cyber-Twin
MIDI Foot Pedal with the intention of using it for the CT as
well as the Repeater. It's a real simple pedal to use. Sends PC
and can send CC.

    Most of the MIDI functions I tried worked BUT when a new
loop is selected (after being created), ex. LOOP UP, I can't get
the darn thing to PLAY. I opened a case with Electrix and
they're helpful but it seems weird that a simple function can't
be made to work. I'm running 1.1, BTW.

    This problem is really starting to get on my nerves. As a
guitar player, stopping to manually initiate Loop Up or Loop
Down ain't gonna cut it.

    Electrix should have, in the first place, took a lesson from
Gibson and used more than a 3 switch pedal. You got to be able
to Loop Up or Down.

    Oh well, must have been the bad Martinis I drank earlier.
