| The MIDI Solutions F8 8-input MIDI Footswitch Controller provides eight 1/4" phone jack inputs for connection to footswitches or contact closures which can be used to trigger MIDI events. Triggered MIDI events are merged with incoming MIDI messages and sent to the MIDI output of the F8. Triggered event types are programmable and include:
Note; Control Change, Pitch Bend, Program Change, Start/Stop, System Exclusive
Other functions include:
Program Change INC/DEC, Rechannelize, Transpose, Tempo Tap, Note-on Filter
MIDI Echo and Footswitch Toggle parameters are selectable on/off.
The Polarity of each footswitch can be determined automatically on power-up, or can be programmed to normally-open or normally-closed. It's also possible for the F8 to send out the state of its footswitches immediately on power-up rather than waiting for each to be depressed.

The F8 is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most products. A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.
