Virtual Clutch with foot switch...
« on: May 12, 2019, 07:54:28 AM »

I recently got a proposal from a customer to modify my hi-hat conversion module for FD-8/VH-11 with Virtual Clutch for 2box DrumIt Five. The "mod" was instead of using a plain switch for controlling the virtual clutch, now got replaced by a foot switch. (And thinking of it, I should have done this years ago on my design!)

I have previously built some guitar effect boxes to I had the right foot switch in stock. :-)

The virtual clutch function works like this - you can be pre-define the hi-hat pedal position in advance (adjustable from closed to half open hi-hat). When pressing the foot switch it will go from normal hi-hat pedal use to the pre-defined pedal value. Extremely useful if using double kicks etc...

Note: Even if running in virtual clutch mode...and pressing the hi-hat pedal, it will move from the pre-defined pedal position to closed - if any gap defined.

Now after the mod - the footswitch on the conversion module controls this function rapidly from your feet….

Best Regards

nice ... as usual ;)

IMO a jack plug for an external footswitch would be welcome , for those who want to keep the box close to the module ...
