Can I use CV/GATE/TRIGGER signals to trigger The Pill?
Yes! From all 2021 versions on.Stereo Version: Dedicated CV trigger input, can be used simultaneously with the audio trigger input.
Mini Version: CV/Gate/Trigger or Audio-trigger. Can be set with an internal switch.
Does the Pedal accepts Midi?
No. Or not really.
There are no digits in The Pill. So there’s no Midi encoder. But, funnily, it reacts to midi messages. Just completely unfiltered (no encoder). That means it reacts to all CCs, Note Changes, Note on/offs, PCs, Pitch Bends, … on every channel.
Surely, that’s not what you want, but if you really want to use The Pill with Midi, you could think of implement a MIDI filter before sending Midi to The Pill. There even exist smart Midi cables, which can filter everything out what you want (like everything except your desired „ducking“ Midi message). Google «Smart Midi Cable».
But don’t forget, you can also just send an audio click track or similar to The Pill, instead of messing around with midi.
What are the dimensions and weight of the pedal?
