MODX Control Rotary With FC7 Foot Controller

Unread post by StorminNorman » Wed Apr 03, 2019 7:40 pm

I recently replaced my old Motif XS8 with a new MODX7.
(I love it!)
On the old Motif I was able to control Rotary, (Leslie), effects easily with my FC7 FOOT CONTROLLER.
I have searched everywhere but cannot seem to find a simple concise procedure for setting this up on the MODX.
Could anyone please help?
Thanks,
Norm

Hi and welcome. You do need to dig down the menus a little.

Essentially (assuming the Leslie effect is in the INSERT effects for a Performance Part (which it is in the Montage organs I checked)
  • Select you Performance you want to edit
  • Press the EDIT button
  • Select the Part you want to adjust (e.g. Part 1) using the blue controls in the lower left of the TP - note some organs may use more than one part for a full range of drawbars, leakage noise, keyclick etc.
  • From the left menu on the TP select MOD/Control
  • Select Control Assign from the sub menu
  • At the top of the screen you'll see a control called Display Filter click this and select Foot CTRL 1 or 2 depending what your FC7 is plugged into
  • Now you will see you can add destinations. Hit the [+] icon and select INSA SpdCtrl or INSB SpdCtl - note some Montage organs have dual Leslie effects in the INS blocks so use one Destination for INS A and another for INS B
Note, I think to get control via the foot controller you need to have the effect in a PART INS, as I could not see the foot controllers as a MOD source for the Performance global effects, but I could be wrong.

HTH. If you are still struggling. I might have some time in the next few days to dig out an old FC7 and take some pictures of the screens.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.
Unfortunately, the directions for controlling leslie effect ended up locking the rotary effect on high speed
Perhaps since I used the FC7 foot on controller 2, it was already assigned to superknob control?
(My other FC7, on foot controller 1, is controlling volume.)
Thanks,
-Norm
