The switches on the extra foot switch pedal can be used to navigate folders, not just songs. So we don’t have to bend down to reach the knobs nor do we need MIDI to navigate the pedal. Or at least, this is a stop gap until full MIDI control comes along.
My extra foot switches are set up to ‘song back’ (left switch) and ‘song advance’ (right switch) when the pedal isn’t playing. I don’t know if this works on other settings.
When the pedal isn’t playing, a tap on either switch scrolls through the song list. Here’s how to navigate the folders - holding down on one of the two switches moves the screen to the folder listing. The L/R switches will now navigate the folders just like with songs. Holding down one of the footswitches will open the folder so the song list is displayed. Holding down the main pedal foot switch will bring up the first song in the folder, ready to play but not started.
I believe both lists scroll to the other end of the list (e.g. last song to first song, or last folder to first folder) when you reach either end of the list.
It’s that simple. I didn’t see this in the v10 manual and, based on some of the MIDI feature requests, I don’t think everyone was aware of these features. Note, I’m using firmware 1.75. I don’t know if these features are new or just unknown.
