Greedy for more external switches :)

Hi guys (and gals if you are out there....).

Is it possible to setup expression pedals 3 & 4 on my MFC101 (Mk3) as external switches? I am building a new pedal board for my MFC where I thought it would be cool to have an extra row of 6 switches at the bottom of the MFC.

I've not been able to find this on the forum, so I suspect that it isn't possible but it doesn't do ay harm to ask. 8)

Cheers,
Adrian.

Yes it is. I did the same thing with the switches in my exp pedals.

I set up the exp pedal outputs as external controllers 1,2,3 and 4.
This way I can use each one to control something different in each preset.

Using the switch sends min "0" (off) or max "127" (on) to toggle what you want to switch.
(It could be that the min setting is "off" instead of "0". I'm writing this of the top
of my head.)

Let me know if you need some specifics on the settings.

That's really good to know, thanks John!

I must have missed this in my searching then; it would be great if you could point me in the right direction or help out with the gory details please?
