XT-1 goes MIDI

Are you a MIDI fanatic? then here’s a big news!!

SIM1 has just released a new firmare (2.44) allowing Xt-1 to read Program-Change MIDI commands via the most popular MIDI-to-USB adapters, and to re-route program Changes as a midi-through feature.

You can find the New Firmware and the updated version of the Editor for PC/Mac (to edit the MIDI program for each preset) in the “DOWNLOAD section of the website!

Following adapters were tested:

– M-Audio Midisport 1×1 USB
– M-Audio Midisport UNO USB
– Roland UM-ONE mk2
– Prozor MIDI-USB adapter

with Kemper Profiling Amp and Midibuddy pedal board.

Have fun!!

  1. So does this mean if I use any guitar fx multi-effect board with midi option I can control the SIM1-XT-1 directly from the multi-effect board?

    Say I have a custom bank of sounds with 50 different settings, organized so that each sound profile correspond to my current set list, for each new song I just stomp the next button on the bank. And that stomp button would also control the SIM1 so I get the guitar model I want for each of the 50 custom profiles?

    Switching from song 1 to song 2 would give me a certain multi-effect setting, along with a dedicated guitar sound from the SIM1?

      Hi, YES RIGHT!! You just need to you use a MIDI-USB adaptor like one listed in the news (optional).

      Each of the 30 banks of XT-1 is assigned with a program change (PC) number (from 1-30), with the Configuration sw (you can download PC/MAC versions in our website in the Download section) you can modify the PG number for each bank or you can change the list of your guitars – PC number greater than 30 will switch Xt-1 in TRUE-BYPASS modality.

      Yes, Switching from song 1 to song 2 (in your multi effect board or MIDI pedal board) will give you a certain multi-effect setting, along with a dedicated guitar sound from the SIM1!

      For example we are now using it together with Kemper via a MIDI board and M-Audio Midisport UNO USB, and works like a charm!

      Thanks for your interest!
