I'd like to use external MIDI footswitch (Disaster Area Midi Baby) to mute the Boss ES-5, is this possible ?
Basically, I can set MIDI Baby to send any MIDI message, but I haven't fount any info in ES-5 manual about how to remotely mute it.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

There's no direct MIDI CC to call bypass, only Patch Numbers as far as I know. But there might be a way to do it by creating an patch with an "Assign"

SRC = CC# (you may need to send this as part of the PC)
Cate = MODE
Target = Mute

Unfortunately I don't have an external MIDI to use for testing right now. Might be worth a try.

Curious to know why you needed to do this?

Thanks, the plan is to use external footswitch for muting so I can use ES-5's mute button for something else.

I use the Mute button for something else as well. Easy fix for me is to put my tuner pre-ES-5 as an inline as supposed to the tuner output on the unit.
