The reason is that I use external microphones to record acoustic instruments. Since the footswitches produce a very loud “click” when depressed, that click is recorded along the acoustic instrument, and can be head in the loop itself… and repeat itself with the loop. If you work with 6 tracks, you start hearing x6 clicks looping… it destroys the experience.
Solution: allow the labels at the bottom of the touch display, to work as silent switches. Instead of using the footswitch, just touch (silently) the respective info-label to activate the start/stop/overdub actions.
It is an important feature, when working with acoustic instruments and microphones in a room. Thanks for considering this for a future update.
I also have this problem. I’ve been using the Aeros to loop vocals and other instruments with a microphone, and the click of the foot switches is particularly loud. Significantly louder in fact than the “soft click” of my chase bliss blooper or the Empress zoia.
I had wondered about creating some kind of damper for the pedals, but I realized that the click actually is part of the design, and happens mechanically, below the chassis, so I’m considering swapping the foot switches out for more standard soft click switches like what are on the empress zoia. I’m just wondering, do the switches connect like standard switches? Is there any reason the Aeros would be difficult to mod with standard soft click switches?
Suggest you move the current buttons for save, home, song list, and new song. At a minimum bump them slightly away from the labels. Want to avoid accidentally pressing the label when going for an icon of vice versa. Have to say I’m pretty inaccurate/sloppy when inverted and also manning the guitar.
