Q181FJ Foot Pedal Interface

Q181FJ Foot Pedal Interface Q181FJ Foot Pedal Interface

The Foot Pedal Interface produces a voltage in response to a variable foot pedal and a Gate signal in response to a foot switch.

The Q181FJ is a single-space module so it can be mounted anywhere in a system or in a Box cabinet next to your keyboard and other controllers.

The Foot Pedal Interface uses our standardized Q181 single-channel controller interface module providing an Auto Gate, Switch Gate and a voltage output preset switch.

Voltage Output Presets
The main output of the Q181FJ Foot Pedal Interface is a voltage that varies as the variable foot pedal is moved. The range of the output voltage is controlled by the Output Range Preset switch to select 5 volts, 2 volts or 4/12ths volt. For modulation, use the 5 volt position then attenuate or invert the signal at the destination module.

Auto Gate
An Auto Gate signal is created as the pedal is moved. The position at which this Gate is produced is set with the Auto Gate control knob. This Gate can be used to start Sequencers, trigger Envelope Generators or to change parameters in the system.

Switch Gate
One pedal interface jack is designed to accept a foot switch such as our QFCS and will activate the Switch Gate. This is just like any other Gate and can be used to control Sequencers and Envelope Generators. The Switch Gate can also be activated manually with the panel button.
