Curious of the insanity some have gone to? Like 4 - FC12's, etc.... Also what and why with buttons. Maybe there is a rig rundown of something Vernon Reid ridiculous??
I had the X15 back in the '90s. Solid unit. Not too many features, tho....I’m old school with a ART X-15 midi controller... works great for my needs, and it’s made of metal. I’ve gigged with it for years and years.
10 buttons for preset changes ... in banks of 10.
I use the bypass button on the X-15 for an effect on/off.
It has 2 built in expression pedals. One I always set for a 4db boost for solos or when I need to kick a little more for a part.
The other pedal is to usually bring in a delay amount or other effect.
I use 2 switches into the pedal jacks. One for another effect on/off and the other used to tap the tempo for delay based effects.
Running an FM9 with 3 buttons in the expression jacks, 4 buttons more and 2 faders via Expression IO, 4 expression pedals via another ExpressionIO, along with an FC6 with 4 buttons via expression jacks and 4 buttons via switch jacks controlling stuff in my AxeFX3
I never used their other products... I thought they were ass. But, the midi controller although ‘simple’ by today’s standards functions well.. for my needs."Pile O Stuff." Haha! All that Art stuff was foogly. And (once I admitted it to myself) sounded like crap.
Oh yeah, I'm sure. I wasn't knocking the controller, but I had 2 of their rack effects, and just..., bad.I never used their other products... I thought they were ass. But, the midi controller although ‘simple’ by today’s standards functions well.. for my needs.
