Global Foot Switch Kit Change for Strike Multipad

Am I missing something? For every kit, I want my 1 and 2 foot switches to send a previous or next kit message to the Strike Multipad. Right now foot switches seem to be assigned at the kit level instead of utility/global level, which means I have to go in and assign up and down to my switch in every kit? Am I missing something? I checked the manual and searched the web but nothing.

Hello, Tracy

Thanks for posting! We apologize for the delay in response. 

Yes, this is how you would have to set up the footswitch controllers for every kit. There is a no "Global" footswitch assignment option that overrides all other kit settings, though that would be a good feature update. I can definitely submit that for you! 

Thank you for your feedback!

HI There,
How do you assign a foot switch control in 1/2 or 3/4? In the user kits I don't see the option in the kit settings. If I press the control button, I can scroll to see what is assigned to the pads, triggers, and foot switches. I just don't see a way to assign them. I see them assigned in the preset kits.

Hello, Halemanu

You need to "Note Chase" the footswitch. Is there footswitch connected to the Strike Multipad? Make sure there is, press on the footswitch and you will be able to assign a "Control" function. You will have to be in the "Pad" view in order to assign the control, not "Kit" view.

Hope this helps!

@ Tracy,

I am new to the SMP world. I also agree that there needs to be a global option for Pad, FS, and Trigger settings that when chosen overrides any kit level setting. If I am on a kit and want to set a pad differently than the global I can choose GLOBAL or LOCAL. Local would give preference to the kit settings and Global would refer to Global or defaults.

With that said, I did manage a work around by creating a user kit called MASTER that has all my things I want to be Global. No sounds are applied to this kit in my case but that is certainly ok if you have a sound that plays on the same pad for any and or all kits. When I am creating a new kit I start by copying the MASTER and then renaming and assigning sounds. All my control functions, trigger settings, pad feels, audio routing, groups ( if used ) ... etc... copy over.

Hope this helps.
