At the 2019 NAMM Show, Effigy Labs introduced the Control pedal, described as ‘the most playable, responsive MIDI controller you’ve ever felt’.
The Effigy Labs Control pedal was designed to give added dimension and control to the musician. The pedal allows for ‘specifically balanced T-shape compression zones’ for left, right, and forward sensor control, over almost any MIDI parameter.
This is all balanced with a compression top plate (the upside down heart with the green E logo in the center).
The Effigy Control Pedal is equipped with a MIDI jack and USB port to allow direct control of your MIDI keyboards and processors or your favorite music applications.
Re-mapping controllers at the computer or keyboard makes the three quick access modes a versatile way to use its MIDI functions.
Of the three sensor regions, the forward position allows for the movement between the left and center or right and center positions. This is very musical for smooth morphing between sounds.
Up to three MIDI commands can be expressed from a single position. This opens up many possibilities to morph from one effect to another, or to control multiple devices on different channels at the same time.
The Effigy “Extreme Control” Knob gives the user a switchable sensitivity control or a fourth MIDI controller you can program to your liking. The sensitivity mode allows for contouring of the overall performance of the three pressure zones.
The select switch allows you to make a selection or tap into a few more hidden features like choosing a preset or changing the global MIDI channel.
All settings are remembered and stored into one of five internally stored presets.
