In the last video we learned all the nuances of the Push2’s User Mode and how to use the touch strip as a crossfader for DJing. In this video, we’ll learn how to use Footswitches with the Push2.
The 2 quarter inch jacks on the back of the Push2 don’t send or receive any audio. They are there for momentary foot pedals.
Plugging a simple piano sustain pedal into Jack 1 acts as a normal sustain pedal would to hold out notes.
Jack 2 acts as a hands free record button. Pressing down on the foot switch will toggle the record button, which will switch between recording or overdubbing the current loop. Quickly double tapping will function the same as pressing the New button on the Push2.
