The MIDI Mitigator (RFC-1) can send:
Program Change, Control Change, Pitch Change, Channel Mode, Note On, Note
Polyphonic Aftertouch, Channel Pressure, All Notes Off, SysEx, System
and System Real-Time messages. The RFC-1 is easy to program and use but
need to know hexadecimal numbers. From the manual:
"The RFC-1 will generate, store, and transmit anyM IDI command string, up
bytes long, allowed by the MIDI specification. By using the "Hexidecimal
it will generate command strings NOT allowed by the MIDI specification.
this reason, it is the responsibility of the user to determine what
any, the transmitted command strings will have on the interfaced equipment.
This should be done by reading the literature provided with any equipment
interfaced with the RFC-1."
Since the Mitigator can send data to any MIDI channel, then it can control
devices, so long as you can do it within the 255 byte limitation. If you
then you can split up your command between two pedals. There are five
labeled A, B, C, D, and E. My unit came with a 100-130V; 50-60Hz wall
have no idea if Lake Butler ever made power supplies suitable for other
systems. Unfortunately, Lake Butler no longer exists. But if you have a
converter, you can use the existing supply. I bought a converter over
Radio Shack and it worked fine in the UK and in Belgium.
Warning! There is no support since Lake Butler is no more. Operation is
with the manual. But repairs, if you ever need any, might be problematic.
love the RFC-1 but you might wish to consider buying a newer controller
manufacturer still exists.
