    HI all, I recently bought a disaster area dpc 5 midi controller for my pedalboard. I have an eventide timefactor and a flashback x4 that I am seeking to control via midi. The timefactor is fairly easy to setup with the dpc 5 once I get going, and mapping isn't too hard but I have no idea how to control the flashback's 3 presets via the midi controller. Does anyone know how to do this?

    I think you can theoretically recall the presets via pc msg and get sync via clock. It may have improved with some update but I do recall there was no bypass via midi available except by losing a preset to bypass. I think having put midi hardware on the two bigger flashback pedals to have such a basic and arguably flawed midi spec is disappointing... Maybe it'll get improved with an update....

    Thanks, fretwhizzy. Looks like I might have to get rid of it. They haven't updated it in years. The midi implementation of this pedal is nonetheless disappointing.
