Photon Midi Convertor Manual with Foot Controller Functions

Hello all,
            Anyone have any Photon Docs that show the later FUNCTIONS
 FOR THE PHOTON FOOT CONTROLLER such as the Arpeggiator and Sequencer
 functions?

 I have the manual version 2.1 that came with the system but there wasn't anything printed  <at>  that time about
the foot controller.

 Thanks!

Pitch Bend        Patch Map          User Presets  Sequencer

(bottom row)
MIDI Off/Tune     Transpose/Harmonize      Hold    Arpeggiator

Feel free to contact me with any other information you need

Re: Photon Midi Convertor Manual with Foot Controller Functions

Hi Chuck,
          I found the Parameter Template Card for version 3 software
 I forgot I had. There a a link for my users group (Obsolete Guitar Synths & Midi Guitars) in the link section
here and a Scan is posted.

 In your youtube video (Great job by the way) you Sequence a Bass line
 and then drum parts on top. I am not sure how to use all the  
 functions of the sequencer yet since I don't have any documents  
 explaining this. Manual Version 2.1 cuts off  <at>  Function 54.

 I know there are 10 sequences available but not sure how the use it to it fullest! By the way I ran across your
web page just yesterday
and noticed you spend a great deal of time with your Photon. I contacted PHI-TECH a few years back and  <at>  that
time they were still
selling systems and parts(I have some part no#s listed on my users group)

I sent them an email yesterday to see if they still have anything available. I also use an Ibanez IMG-2010 but
I find that the Photon
has many advantages over the Ibanez system.

Regards,
David

Re: Photon Midi Convertor Manual with Foot Controller Functions

As I recall I set the sequencer parameter 70 to OD which allowed me to layer different sequences by hitting
the foot switch. After doing one round of the bass line I hit to Sequencer foot switch on the downbeat,
waited one cycle then started layering in drums parts.

Re: Photon Midi Convertor Manual with Foot Controller Functions

David,

While there are 10 sequences, you can layer or overdub as the parameter template says (I have the same one) in
one sequence. That's what I did on the video. Started with a blank sequence and I think set parameter 70 to OD
or overdub, or perhaps it went automatically to overdub from the RC record mode, don't recall. I hit the
sequencer footswitch to start recording then hit it again at the end (the downbeat of the next cycle). I
then started laying in the drums parts. 
I think the idea is you could prerecord a sequence then by setting parameter 70 to PL, hitting the footswitch
would start the current sequence playing. You have to use the front panel to select another of the 10
prerecorded for the next "song" you wanted to use it in, then again, start and stop it with the foot pedal.

Re: Photon Midi Convertor Manual with Foot Controller Functions

 Chuck,
           Thanks! I didn't know about the overdub function in  
 Parameter 70! I have had it for years but just got the pickup  
 properly installed on my Jackson Professional. There are definitly
 Pros and Cons over my IBANEZ IMG2010 with the MC-1 or GM-70

 I think a Pitch Bend setting of 7 seems to sound better than using 
 4 on the Photon. Also it looks like Pitch Bend is the only 
 Continuous Controller available on the Photon. Still it seems to be
 a cool system and Made in America to boot.

 Cheers,

 David

That feature sounds intriguing, very intriguing to me. I think I  
recall that one of our fellow members here has achieved this via  
Absynth. Perhaps I've got the wrong software in mind, or even the  
wrong group, because I was also active in the vg-8 and VG-99 groups  
when I heard of this.

I say intriguing, but I don't think of it as something I "need", and  
I'm not sure I really want it. I imagine it'd be awesome, but I don't  
know yet if I'd really use it. It certainly interests me enough that,  
if an instrument had that feature as well as other, more important  
features, I'd consider paying a little extra for that.

Personally, no big gear purchases will happen soon, I believe. I'm  
extremely satisfied with my VG-99, and I'm not even actively playing  
much in the past couple of years (other life events intercede). I get  
so few chances to play, these days, that my finger callouses are  
getting soft! I do look forward to playing more, when I get other  
things in life taken care of. In fact, I'm going to go play a bit now,  
before I must sleep.

Guitar Technolog Conference in Paris 18th and 19th May 2009

I will be presenting a review of my research over the last 20 years with divided pickups, new multitouch
surfaces integrated on the guitar and show some surprising new things that a student of mine Ed Berdahl has
done with active control of strings hexaphonically.

Here is the conference announcement

Adrian:

This sounds great - can you post an abstract and some data to the group 
after the presentation??

Re: Pitch Bend Pedal

Here's a link to a couple of products from Eowave, which might be of interest to midi guitarists.

USB/Midi Pedal
http://www.eowave.com/controllers.php?prod=52

USB/Midi Foot Controller
http://www.eowave.com/controllers.php?prod=53

The self contained Eomono USB/Midi Ribbon Controllers also look interesting - the smaller ones would
possibly be suitable for installing on a guitar body?

Reasonable prices too!
