Flexiport Compatibility List for 'Switch Out' Mode

Device compatibility for the 'Switch Out' Flexiport mode

Flexiport "Switch Out" Mode

Our Flexiports have 11 modes. From MIDI Out and Expression In, to External Switch input and sending Tap Tempo as a switch output you can do a lot of things with a Flexiport!

The 'Switch Out' mode allows you to assign any switch action (press, release, double press, hold etc.) to any TRS switch configuration. For example, a press might trigger the Tip of the TRS being connected/closed, and a release may trigger the Ring of the TRS being connected/closed. For every different switch action, you can assign Tip, Ring, or Tip+Ring to be closed on the TRS Flexiport of your choice.

You can use this to control other effects or devices that might have switch inputs. The input might be an external footswitch port, a tap tempo port, or some other auxiliary function.

Compatibility & Safety

The Flexiports do not use relays and are not capable of switching high-current or high-voltage amp channels. Some Amplifiers, especially more modern ones MAY be able to be switched using a Flexiport but we do not recommend testing this yourself, as it may damage your Flexiport permanently and will not be covered by warranty. That's why we have created this page.

If you have a device and are unsure whether it is suitable to be used with the Flexiport Switch Out mode, please contact us at support@piratemidi.com and we will investigate it for you.

The list below names devices that we are sure will not damage your Flexiport if you use it in 'Switch Out' mode or 'Tap Tempo Out' mode which uses the same analog switching method.

Devices:

  • BOSS DD-20 Tap Tempo port
  • Eventide H9 Exp/FS port
  • Line6 Helix FS ports

The Heavy Duty Option

If your device is not able to interface directly with the Flexiport, we have a solution for you. At only 22mm thin, the CLiCK is a USB MIDI interface and Relay Switcher built specifically for channel switching old amps, pedals with aux in or tap tempo jacks, or pedals with external switching. Strymon Fave, JHS Red Remote and more are all able to be integrated into your MIDI rig with the CLiCK.

With 3.5mm TRS MIDI in, MIDI out, and a 1/4" (6.35mm) TRS Relay Jacks, you can control the Tip and Ring independently with MIDI via USB, or via the 3.5mm TRS jacks (adapt to DIN5 or 1/4" with cable adapters). You can even switch the relays with an aux switch plugged into the MIDI out! No MIDI actually required!

And if you need a MIDI to USB interface, you can use it for that too. Plug MIDI in/out with 3.5mm TRS (or with adapters) and get the MIID directly in or out of your computer.

You can order now at piratemidi.com and hide this little relay interface under your pedalboard for all your switching needs.
