Device Details


Name | Version: Flip Sustain 1.0
Author: dennisdesantis
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: This device inverts the polarity of incoming sustain pedal messages.

It is designed for use with pedals whose polarity cannot otherwise be switched, such as certain footswitches from Yamaha.

Note that these footswitches are *not* common. In most cases, pedal polarity can be reversed via a switch on the pedal or by depressing it while plugging it in.

To use, simply insert an instance on the MIDI track which will be receiving sustain pedal messages.

Known issues:
This device works per track, meaning that it is necessary to add one to every MIDI track in your Live Set. A better solution would be a single device inserted anywhere which could process sustain pedal messages for all relevant tracks. This is probably possible via the Live API.

Perfect for my shitty pedal polarit issue, saves a few quid - thanks
thanks a lot for this, i have exactly this 'certain' footswtich from yamaha and the Studiologic Acuna 88 cannot invert (shame on them) the sustain polarity... lifesaver!
Very useful, my pedal broke, and I replaced it with a Roland one, which has reversed polarity. Thanks, it works well.
Thanks for this, saved my session!
I love you.
Terima Kasih
I've been trying to reverse the polarity on my Yamaha FC5 sustain pedal going into an Akai MPK Mini. This is the only thing that has worked.
