Foot Controller Presets for TriplePlay Use

While there is no shortage of foot controllers on the market that can be used with TriplePlay, two popular models that we have been able to test in-house are the Logidy UMI3, and the Line 6 FBV Express MKII:

What we are looking to do is enable patch up, patch down, and sustain across the three foot switches from left to right. Assign MIDI CC 67 for patch-up, CC 68 for patch-down, and CC 66 for Sustain in order to achieve this functionality. Alternatively, you can download and save the following parameters file to your Logidy UMI3 which already includes these settings :

Line 6’s FBV Express has four foot switches rather than the Logidy’s three, and its user interface appears as follows:

I’ve set the FBV Express to mirror the Logidy’s setup with foot switch A being patch-up, B being patch-down, and D being Sustain. Foot switch C is free to be assigned as you wish. Simply download and save the following presets file if you would like to load this setup into your Line 6 FBV Express:

This preset file also includes CC 80 being assigned to the volume pedal. Just remember to check the box within TriplePlay preferences to control the final volume with CC 80. And with any foot controller, be sure it is plugged in when TriplePlay is launched, and select it from the foot pedal MIDI input drop-down:
