Hello, hope opening up a new thread is ok for this.
So I’m currently just using a doepfer a-172-2 (this allows 2 footswitches and an expression pedal), however I’m thinking of using/borrowing a larger Behringer FCB1010 MIDI Foot Controller (plus a M-Audio Midisport 2x2 to covert it to usb if needed).
I’d be using the foot controller to trigger various things within the er301 allowing me to focus on playing guitar.
I read over the topic on the Expert Sleepers FH-1 Faderhost here but as I’m not really experienced in midi, I was thinking it might be more straight forward using the Hexinverter Electronique Mutant Brain to patch the footcontroller into the er301.
Primarily i’m needing just a bunch of on/off triggers (or gates( and the two expression controllers within the Behringer FCB1010, so nothing too complex. I therefore wouldn’t need anything too complex but can’t decide if the Hexinverter Mutant Brain or the Expert Sleepers FH-1 (there also is a FH-2 but think that’s probably more than I need).
Does anyone else use the 301 for processing a guitar, what foot controllers do you use and more importantly would anyone recommend either the Mutant Brain or the FH-1?
The Mutant Brain does appear to be a bit more straight forward to use plus as it has a 5 pin din connector I wouldn’t have to use the midisport to convert to USB (which would be needed for the fh-1).
