Foot controller start stop

Unread post by Azimut » Sat Jan 12, 2019 10:49 am

Hello,
Does anyone know if it is possible to connect a pedal to the foot controller input of the MX 49/61 to start and stop the rhythm patterns ? If possible, what kind of pedal switch and how to process ?
Thank you in advance for what you can tell me.

Would really like the see how. When you think of it drum machines are controlled by footswitch so Yamaha must have made a way for it. I saw on a you tube promo that everything is assignable on mx. So how.

I haven't tried to do anything like that with my MX, but I know that on my PSR-E keyboards the style playback can be started and stopped from a DAW or other MIDI device by setting the keyboard to use an external MIDI clock and sending the appropriate System messages to it-- FA = Start, FC = Stop. If the MX has the same capability then it would use those same System messages, but it might require that the MX be in a specific mode first. If you intend to use a pedal for this then the pedal will need to be able to transmit those two types of messages.
