GR-30 > rotary simulator > MIDI
- Ok... for about 10 years, I have been using the following signal path
GR-30 > Behringer 1602 mixer > Rolls RP93S switcher > FOH board. It's
worked great for everything except the organ patch. I set up the
organ patch in an effects loop of the RP93S, so every time I select an
organ patch, it kicks in a Digitech RPM-1 and I control the speed from
a homemade foot switch that emulates the FS300 speed control function.
This worked well, but would easily clip and give me that nasty
digital distortion. This past weekend, I abandoned the RP93S and
plugged the output of the Behringer directly into a Digitech Studio
Quad. I have selected and tweaked the patch where it sounds pretty
good. The one thing I have not been able to do is control the ramp up
of the speed. As a work around, I have one patch on the GR-30 that
brings up a slow speed and one right next to it that brings up the
fast speed. Back when I did MIDI stuff frequently, I remember being
able to control things like speed with MIDI control 11 or something...
I wanted to use the expression pedal to control the speed, but can't
figure it out from the manuals of the GR-30 and the Digitech. Has
anyone done this? If so, what's the secret? Any help would be
greatly appreciated. The Digitech forum is useless.
