Remote Control Gear!

Remote Control Gear!

SoulPedalĀ® is now configured for Fractal and Kemper units, with more pedal gear to come. While Fractal has flexibility on the MIDI configuration, Kemper allows for some serious SoulPedalĀ® functionality through pedal Morphing and Linking shown below. There are many ways to hook up, but with Kemper, MIDI inputs are fixed so specific cc# must be used to control things. Meanwhile my EXP out, which has higher resolution, controls the variables. They work together seamlessly with different modulation effects in each Rig as needed. Both systems should work out of the box using either EXP or MIDI. But I prefer manually switching in/out effects vs automatic enable/disable for the real...

Updated Demo Oct. 2019

Wireless Effects Pedal Update This is long overdue, but good things take time. The latest updates made this pedal more universal for the various users (size and weight), and I’ve reinforced the pressure sensor with Stainless Steel. Testing for reliability is in marathon mode as I’m currently wearing it… sockless, closed shoe, everyday now (although I recommend only putting it on prior to a show or for...

SoulPedal 3D Print Forget the Magnets or Velcro, this pocket design protects the sensors, and easily pops in or out. This one’s at 4 oz, and possible to go lighter. The Inner Soul (blue) is getting jet-printed one more time (oops), but the 2 on hand are usable for getting some feedback. Need to print a small version...

Pedal? What Pedal?

Pedal? What Pedal?

10 Controllers are about ready to go… awesome! But the Pedal (insole piece) has been the ongoing challenge. Wireless charging would be nice, heck add cap sensing and seal this up. It’s all possible and then some. But lets get this going already right? Last week, I painfully learned that nothing glues to velcro strips (really) so forget that. Besides, velcro is not very secure and won’t align anything. Had some nice breakthroughs on the rubber 3D printing but likely only a custom product given print time. However, it’s great way to shape it for the “feel”, or to make my own, so not a waste of time after all. In the lastest version, there are 2 pieces that have to fit together and come apart easily for battery changes (or to change shoe sizes). Inner SoulPedal protects the electronics and sensors. The top part makes it fit comfy and stay in place. Will this one work? We’ll soon see. Need some Magnetism in your day? In other Bucket-list news, I’ve been taking Guitar Lessons for the first time. The curse of playing by ear is that everyone thinks you can play guitar -even friends that also play guitar. There’s a lot going on in there that needs to come out. A month of patience and enjoying the...
