For all the control freaks out there

 

Programmable Expansion of the MOD Duo

The MOD Footswitch seamlessly connects to your MOD Duo and is instantly recognized on the Pedalboard Builder to extend the actuators you can use to control your effects. Like the MOD Duo’s own footswitches, it allows you to scroll through lists, toggle effects on and off and also define tap tempos.

And if you want more controls, you can daisy chain it with another MOD Footswitch or other Control Chain Device.

Visual Information for Maximum Control

Keep track of your configurations thanks to the two LCD screens on your MOD Footswitch. Know exactly what effects are assigned at all times and when shifting through pedalboards. Each footswitch also has its own LED to indicate if the footswitch is being used, if its effect is on/off, for tap tempo and more.

Compact and Robust Design

The MOD Footswitch was designed to sustain all the rigors of the stage yet be lightweight and small. Its sleek design matches the MOD Duo and its compactness ensures a minimal footprint.

Upgradeable Firmware

Like all products of the MOD ecosystem, the MOD Footswitch is meant to last and evolve with time. As new functionalities are developed, you will easily upgrade its firmware and take full advantage of the processor inside.

Footswitch Upgradeable

Open Software and Open Hardware

In tune with MOD Devices disruptive philosophy, both the software and hardware of the MOD Footswitch are open-source. We want our users to empower themselves and be able to use our products in the way they see fit. The MOD Footswitch can easily be hacked and tweaked, and users can even build one themselves.

Open Source Software

Beta Tested for Improved User Experience

The MOD Footswitch was tested among the community in order to collect feedback from early users, correct any firmware or hardware issues, enhance the overall user experience with community-sourced features and sustain the high quality standard for which we work.

Control Chain Devices.

Control Chain is an open standard, including hardware, communication protocol, cables and connectors, developed to connect external controllers to the MOD. For example, footswitch extensions, expression pedals and so on.

Comparing to MIDI, Control Chain is way more powerful. For example, instead of using hard-coded values as MIDI does, Control Chain has what is called device descriptor and its assignment (or mapping) message contains the full information about the parameter being assigned, such as parameter name, absolute value, range and any other data. Having all that information on the device side allows developers to create powerful peripherals that can, for example, show the absolute parameter value on a display, use different LED colors to indicate a specific state, etc. Pretty neat, right?

And remember: you can daisy chain up to 4 Control Chain peripherals to your MOD Duo!
