Black BT Intros Wireless Combo MIDI Pedal, SusEx, At 2023 NAMM Show

At the 2023 NAMM Show, held April 13-15, Black BT introduced the SusEx Pedal, the first pedal that can sense your foot position to automatically and seamlessly switch between a footswitch (eg. SUSTAIN / NOTE TRIGGER) and continuous control modes (eg. EXPRESSION / CUTOFF).

In live performances, the SusEx Pedal eliminates the need for multiple pedals on stage and creates a natural way to creatively “play” multiple pedal parameters without stomping switches or moving back and forth between multiple single-parameter pedals.

It works wirelessly via BLE MIDI (Bluetooth Low Energy) and can also be simultaneously used as a wired sustain pedal thru a mono quarter inch to work with a second keyboard instrument.

It can connect to any keyboard workstation with only USB MIDI via the Black BT HubBLE App (iOS / Android) that makes any such setup BLE MIDI enabled, with up to two pedal connectivity.

Pricing and Availability:

The SusEx Pedal is available to pre-order for $149.99, with shipping expected to be in June 2023.

  1. great idea. a mix of wired and usb/wireless options is neat. maybe a CV version would be great too. – or maybe a hub could take the wireless signals and turn them into a variety of outputs? some gear wants CV in 1/8th within certain ranges, others want 1/4 within certain ranges.
