Boss FS-6 question

Postby fishingtrip » 01 Mar 2024, 20:14

Hi Everyone,
Has anyone managed to link up Boss FS-6 double switch unit with stage 4.
Can not seem to get it to work.'My keys to music' has a demo of it linked up to stage 3 so I know it works with stage 3.
Need it for program changes up and down,thinking now that it might have to be a Nord triple pedal.
Advice greatly appreciated.

Richard.

The Kawai GFP-3 is the best option to get a Tripal Pedal 2 ( https://www.thomann.de/de/kawai_gfp_3.htm). It is much cheaper and a lot of forum members are using it.

FS-6 works fine for Program up/down with my NS3 so I cannot see why it wouldn't on a NS4, you need a stereo (TRS) cable plugged in the A+B jack and set the 2 buttons as momentary.

WARNING: FS-6 has a 9V battery inside and will not work without or if not charged (FS7 does instead)

Thanks for feedback (superbender and maxpiano).
Managed to sort it thanks to My Keys to Music (Marc) He has a vid on linking it to stage 4,The stage 3 instructions are not compatable with stage 4.

Hi, I've been trying to do this with the Stage 4. What are the instructions to use the FS-6 on the Stage 4? I cannot find a link to Mark's new information on the FS-6 with the Stage 4. Thank you!
