Mod Footswitch X4 not always recognised by Mod Dwarf


I have my Mod Dwarf and X4 Mod Devices Footswitch on a pedal board together. The Footswitch is always plugged into the Control Chain socket on the back of Dwarf.

When the Dwarf powers up, so does the Footswitch - but randomly it appears not to be recognised by the Dwarf so foot switch assignments on my selected pedalboard are not shown on the Footswitch screens (which continue to show the defaul ‘Foot #1’ etc displays).

When this happens (which isn’t always) I have to cycle the power on the Dwarf - sometimes several times - before the Footswitch is recognised.

How to reproduce

1.Footswitch is plugged into Dwarf which is powered down.
2. Power up the Dwarf
3. That’s it - sometimes (about 60% of the time) the Footswitch powers up but does not ‘connect’

Expected/suggested solution

I would expect the Footswitch to be detected every time

We have experienced this as well, it is fixed in the upcoming v1.12 as far as we can tell.
There are quite substantial changes behind the scenes in v1.12, so we cannot simply backport as bugfix.
It will be out in a couple of days as release candidate.


Sounds encouraging - thanks for the info…
