MIDI Footswitch

MIDI Accessory

One device to connect them all


Easily configurable through the Darkglass Suite, the Darkglass MIDI Footswitch offers customizable MIDI commands at the tips of your toes. The MIDI footswitch is quick to set up with ready-to-use templates for Darkglass products. A more complex custom MIDI setup is also available with commands on the main and sub operational layers, simultaneous sending of several messages and more, making it a powerful command center that integrates seamlessly with your setup.

The MIDI footswitch can be powered flexibly through either a 9V DC or USB. In addition, the Darkglass amplifiers are capable of powering it through the same 1/4″ plug or a 7-PIN MIDI connector used for the data, offering the full operation using only one cable.
