Midistomp six is an extremely versatile piece
of equipment. It can send latching or momentary signals, CCs or Notes, and you
can add multiple banks of controls to give you 20+ switches on the one device.
There are multiple profiles available online (www.midistomp.com/setup). Some are set up for specific apps and some are generic DAW control profiles. If your midistomp six was shipped with an expression port, please make sure to download the profiles with expression pedal support (also on the /setup page).
