Axe I/o foot pedals

Postby jonworthen » Sat Jul 25, 2020 4:47 pm

Ok, I’m completely confused.
Which foot pedals are compatible with Axe I/o? Not the expression pedals, I understand that, but the single and double foot pedals. Do they need to be a particular kind in order to ‘talk’ to Axe I/o?

Thanks in advance everyone

Not the expression pedals?

Why not? The manuals say it does.

"AXE IO also support continuous expression pedals for controlling realtime parameters like Wah, Volume, FX depth etc. Any 1/4” TRS connector expression pedal will work with AXE IO. MIDI messages associated with these controllers are freely assignable from the “Control app”."

The reason I'm asking, mostly, is that there's another post very recently that claims the user can't get it to work. Then I read this.

Ah, ok. I see my written expression about the expression pedal is a problem, haha! No, what I meant was, I understand all about needing to get the right expression pedal – there are multiple forums dedicated to answering this one such as viewtopic.php?f=9&t=19425

No, my question is about the one and two button switch pedals and which ones of those are compatible. I already have a 2 button pedal and Axe I/o doesn't recognise it.

I hope that clarifies things.

Ah, ok. I find an issue with the written expression I made concerning the expression pedal, funny! No, I intended to say that I completely grasp the requirement for choosing the appropriate expression pedal. This topic is covered in several forums, including viewtopic.php?f=9&t=19425.

No, I'm actually curious about which one- and two-button switch pedals are compatible. My existing 2-button pedal isn't recognised by Axe I/o.

I hope that made things clearer.

Make sure that the pedal is not latching or adjustable to not latching and I believe the expected signal is negative but most foot switched have a toggle for the too. I use Boss pedals and they work fine.

Any double switch with TRS connectivity should work.

Any normally open, momentary footswitch should work fine: a single switch with a TS connector or a double switch with a TRS connector. I've been having very good luck with this one

And one like this should work

Although I'm having an issue with my AXE I/O ONE not handling the double footswitch correctly. See YMMV depending on which AXE I/O you have.
