MIDI expression pedals
MIDI Expressione is an expression pedal with built-in miniature MIDI module and with microswitch under the toe of the pedal. It greatly simplifies operation of wah-wah in multi-effects, including turning on and off by pressing the toe of the pedal.
MIDI expression pedal with footswitch under the toe is used for controlling MIDI-controllable guitar effects which hasn't got an input for external switch under the toe of the pedal. Using MIDI Expressione, pressing another button for switch on/off the Wah is not necessary, which usually has to catch in a very short interval in live performance.
The MIDI channel can be changed by DIP switches on the front panel, see the table bellow. You should select the MIDI channel on which your guitar processor listens. Or in other words, you can address the appropriate guitar effect by the MIDI channel. If both the pedal and the effect are set on the same MIDI channel, then the effect should respond on MIDI data from the pedal. If you are not sure or you have only one guitar processor with no changes of the MIDI channel, leave it without change on default channel 1 on the pedal.
