Are you a MIDI fanatic? then here’s a big news!!
SIM1 has just released a new firmare (2.44) allowing Xt-1 to read Program-Change MIDI commands via the most popular MIDI-to-USB adapters, and to re-route program Changes as a midi-through feature.
You can find the New Firmware and the updated version of the Editor for PC/Mac (to edit the MIDI program for each preset) in the “DOWNLOAD section of the website!
Following adapters were tested:
– M-Audio Midisport 1×1 USB
– M-Audio Midisport UNO USB
– Roland UM-ONE mk2
with Kemper Profiling Amp and Midibuddy pedal board.
UPDATE: new firmware 2.5 features new MIDI MASTER function: xt-1 works as a small midi pedalboard and can configure other external midi devices. e.g. you can send PC (Program Changes) to Kemper or other units, for each bank of Xt-1 you can assign 2 different PCs (one PC for xt-1 in bypass, the other for non-bypass). Allowing a maximum number of 60 PCs (0-127).
