This Week's Friday Show!

Introduction To MIDI For Guitar Pedals & How To Use It

In this video we delve into the near-limitless possibilities that MIDI brings to the guitar pedal world. It’s a big subject with a tremendous number of potential applications, so we start from the beginning and explain the three basic functionality benefits that MIDI offers to pedal users. They are PCM (patch/program change messages), CC (continuous control) and MIDI Clock. The upshot is that if you have MIDI-enabled pedals and some form of MIDI controller you can access a vast number of patch and parameter changes across multiple devices with one single footswitch press. Please note that this video is focussed on the kind of pedals we use – high quality stompboxes, preferably with as much analogue signal path as possible. Regular viewers will know that we’re not into digital multi FX, rack gear or digital modelling amps/processors. They can all benefit from MIDI control as well of course, but we don't deal with them here.

To celebrate the incredible milestone of reaching 100,000 subscribers on YouTube, we put together this video explaining how That Pedal Show comes together.
We talk about filming, audio production, editing… it's a run through all that background shizzle so that you can see what goes on. The show you see each week has a team of four behind it: Mick & Dan, Simon who does the filming and editing, and Katherine (Mick’s wife) who takes care of all the TPS Store stuff and our finances. It’s a tremendous amount of work and we’re exceptionally lucky to have such awesome people helping us.

More than anything, we're lucky, grateful and immensely proud to have YOU LOT!
