Control Chain Devices
Control Chain is an open standard developed to connect external controllers to MOD audio processors such as footswitch extensions or expression pedals.
Compared to MIDI, Control Chain is much more powerful. Instead of using hard-coded values, it’s equipped with a device descriptor. Its assignment (or mapping) message contains the full information about the parameter, such as name, absolute value, range, and any other data. Accessing this information allows developers to create peripherals that can show the absolute parameter value on a display, use different LED colors to indicate a specific state, etc. It’s possible to daisy chain up to 4 control chain peripherals to your MOD Duo. Pretty neat, right?
