    Hey MarkPAman

    Perfect…Adam Hall great company and this box will be as reliable as they come…

    For the A+B solution this will be the way to go in terms of ruggedness and budget!!!

    Hey folks

    Regarding the midi solution for toggling FX on off…

    Here’s a link for the ‘Midi Solutions” footswitch controler..

    http://midisolutions.com/prodfsw.htm

    Does anyone have any experience with this device and will it do the job using say a Boss FSU footswitch

    Many thanks for comments in advance..

    Hi Sharpie,

    The foot switch that my techie is building works in the same way as an iPad using A&H ITP protocol, the foot switch would send commands wirelessly via your router into the desk and switch off the FX or whatever you programme it to do. This is the same method as your iPad.

    Hi Lee…

    Wondering if the footswitch would have the option to connect via the network port as well as wirelessly through the router…It’d be great to connect via the network port until I’ve been able to buy an ipad and router…

    Alternatively I’m thinking I could work with the Midi Solutions footswitch controler until I’ve been able to buy a router and ipad and then upgrade..

    I’m awaiting a reply from Midi Solutions who should be able to tell me if their controler will work with the QU24…

    Super thanks as ever..

    You don’t have to buy an iPad, just buy a router. Very inexpensive.

    Hey thanks Lee…

    Been checking out routers and the Apple Airport express looks like the one to go with…

    I see that’s what they’re using over at the A&H Audio Technica service folks..

    Thinking I might as well start prepping to for ipad manouvres by starting with a router..

    Not too heavy on the budget…

    Super thanks…

    Hey Lee..

    That’s cool..Hey whilst we’re at it…which ipad would you recomend…I’ll be using it more or less exclusively for QU24 things…I have a macbook pro for everything else..
    I’m looking at ipads on Jigsaw computers and would like to know specs to be in the right budget window…As long as it’ll work with the QU24 I wont need a super hi spec ipad…although with a bit of spec headroom so all functions without any glitches…

    I guess the folow up question is what sort of budget are you thinking for pedal and what sort of timeframe are you thinking…

    Hi Lee

    Swift thought re pedal…

    I’m willing to bet that at somepoint I’ll be in a venue without wifi…

    Thinking it would be definately important to have a cable connection option on the pedal for just such a situation..

    I have an iPad Air first generation, but older iPads will work.

    You don’t need WIFI in a venue for your iPad or foot switch to work with your QU-24 as you are connected via your router which is connected to the QU-24. All simple stuff really.

    Cannot give a timescale I’m afraid.

    Well here’s the latest folks….

    Whilst waiting to expedite a midi solution I’ve gone for markPAman’s A+B solution…

    An A+B box output switching box can be found at Gear4music..

    Lee’s midi solution is in the works and as soon as details are available I believe this will be the best solution…

    I guess it comes down to if there are 5/6 folks who’d like to be on board a pedal can be made on a small custom basis that will be the solution we all need…I encourage all who’d like to expedite matters in this regard to make their voices heard and let Lee know so matters can proceed..

    We’re getting there folks!!
