just some info that others might find useful. I’ve been using a Line6 HX Stomp multi-fx pedal for a while and only just discovered it has a MIDI command centre feature that lets you program it to send MIDI notes or CC commands via 5-pin cable. (I should have RTFM sooner!) Works really well for hands-free recording with pickup machines (or flex machines) on the Octatrack.
Obviously it has a ton of great effects and amp simulation which is why I got it, but this adds a whole lot more possibilities.
The HX Stomp has many other functions that look promising but I haven’t explored yet:
- has MIDI in to sync delays with the OT
- can receive to Prog Change so you could change effects with pattern changes
- has a 2nd set of stereo audio inputs that could be used for a separate synth or as an FX loop from OT CUE outs
- it has USB audio so you could send things to/from your DAW
Hope that is useful!
OK line6 you can send the freebies to me now haha
