Re: Rolls RFX MP1288 MIDIWizard (was: Phil Keaggy video)


Has anyone had any success trying to use this device to control an EDP?
I am intrigued also by the availability of multiple continuous controller
jack -- up to eight of them, wow! Seems interesting enough to investigate.

In 2000 Phil began using a <http://www.rolls.com/new/mp1288.html>Rolls RFX MP1288 MIDIWizard MIDI foot controller to control his JamMan (you can see him using it in the split-screen shot near the beginning of his Philly Live! DVD). This is one of only a few MIDI pedals that allows one to send multiple MIDI messages with a single foot press. This allows Phil to do things with the JamMan that would require sub-millisecond footwork to accomplish with the JamMan's normal pedals. In addition, the JamMan has some capabilities that are only accessible via MIDI and not from the front panel or its included foot pedals. This includes the abilities to stop and restart a loop and to fade loops; Phil accesses these capabilities with the MIDIWizard. For details on how Phil's MIDIWizard is programmed, read these <http://www.museweb.com/keaggy/MIDIWizard-JamMan.txt>notes on MIDIWizard programming for the JamMan. If you program a MIDIWizard this way, you may also find this <http://www.museweb.com/keaggy/MIDIWizardLabels.pdf>sheet of MIDIWizard labels handy.
