ok. Some may or may not know that I'm an electronic engineer and I have designed what I think is a cool system but others will probably think it sucks. I have designed a guitar with simple push buttons on the front and if you push the buttons it sends a wireless signal to my pedal board in which the midi pedals turn on and off with each push and the other buttons drive mechanical parts into turning on my stomp boxes. This means I can turn more than 1 pedal on at once but also I don't need a huge pedal board in my way so I can rock out and have the pedal board off stage.

Am I mad or do you think this is a cool idea? I love electronics smile.gif

I've only done a prototype design and planning to show exactly how it works. I now need to implement it for real which will be my project when I go back to my hometown. I will of course do a video demonstration when it's completed. smile.gif Hopefully it works as well as I've planned but it should do.

I designed it because I'm always falling over my pedal board. I also have a signal sent back from my tuner pedal to a little display on my guitar also. I'm an electronics freak lol biggrin.gif

Hey organized I'm very interested in what you have created mate. I have a suggestion for you. You should check out if you can patent your invention and I'm serious. You could make huge bucks out of it if your stuff gets commercialized or bought by some company. Also I recommend writing a blog about it, or at least give us a video to check it out. SOund like a very cool thing.

I do electronics for a living and it's just a bit of fun in my spare time. If I complete it and it works well then I may patent it and see how it goes. I certainly think the idea is promising. I will start blogging about it when I get creating the system. smile.gif Going to be purchasing all parts I need over next week. smile.gif

So it's basicly like Midi wireless?
Could you make it without building special guitar for it,
like small Zoom processors with tiny "footswitch" attached to guitar body?
Anyhow,love the idea and would love to see it! smile.gif

It just activates any pedals you have from buttons on your guitar basically. Say you want chorus, delay and reverb on then you can programme it into 1 button to turn those effects on. I will then try and get it so I can change settings. This works with single pedals.

But you mentioned Midi in first post so I though
you have some kind of Midi router(patch bay) near your pedals
and you activate(control) it from your guitar,using wireless.
Is that it? smile.gif

Yeah. That is what I'll be using for my midi systems.

Well it sounds like cool feature ^^

I thought some of that same thoughts, I'm not electronic engineer or anything just creative happy.gif My idea was to implement stomp box circuits inside the guitar, and control knobs with bypass on it too tongue.gif
