MIDI Solutions F8

The MIDI Solutions F8 8-input MIDI Footswitch Controller provides eight 1/4" phone jack inputs for connection to footswitches or contact closures which can be used to trigger MIDI events. Triggered MIDI events are merged with incoming MIDI messages and sent to the MIDI output of the F8.

Triggered event types are programmable and include:


Other functions include:


MIDI Echo and Footswitch Toggle parameters are selectable on/off.

The Polarity of each footswitch can be determined automatically on power-up, or can be programmed to normally-open or normally-closed. It's also possible for the F8 to send out the state of its footswitches immediately on power-up rather than waiting for each to be depressed.

The F8 is programmed by sending it MIDI System Exclusive messages (see FAQs - Programming). This can be done easily with the Programming Tools software for the F8 and R8. One of our customers has also developed a Programming Tools application for Mac OS X, we do not provide support for this application but it is available here: www.crfmw.be/MS

Once programmed, the F8's settings are retained even after power is removed. The F8 can be reprogrammed with new settings as often as needed.

The F8 is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most MIDI products (see FAQs - Power and FAQs - LED for more information). A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.
