Multi-Button Footswitch For Rockmodules

Post by REO Speedweasel » Wed Jun 18, 2014 12:43 am

Are there any current manufactured multi-button footswitches out there (non-MIDI) with 1/4" mono plugs people are using for controlling their Rockmodule rigs? I'm talking more than 3 buttons if possible...

I'm using a pair of Boss F5-6 pedals. It gives me 4 pedals and they connect like legos. You could link more if you want.

Thanks for the tip - after tons of research online, decided the Octopus would be the best. Fleabay to the rescue again! :lol:

Not that I'm aware of.

Making your own is super easy. You just need the switches, a box to put it all in, and a bunch of cords.

Another option for you is the Rocktron Patchmate or Floormate. They do everything the Octopus does, plus signal routing and A/B switching like the switchboxes.

So, is this (Voodoo Lab Control Switcher) basically the same as the Octopus? Or actually, half an Octopus?
Seems like this is the way to go so that I can just use a Midi Send from my floor effect unit (e.g., Zoom G9-tt) to control a Sustainor...am I on the right track here?

That should work just fine!
