Release 1.4.0

Hi there everyone, the stable release of v1.4 is here - v1.4.0 aka “Everything is under control”.

This is a new feature release, with focus on Control Chain.
There’s also some small but nice additions to improve the overall user experience.
The list of new features was on the 1.4.0-RC1 announcement, but let’s go through them again.

  1. Control Chain
    Control Chain is MOD’s custom way of doing external devices.
    It is an open standard (including hardware, communication protocol, cables and connectors).
    You can do with Control Chain what the MOD Duo’s hardware actuators are doing right now. For example, show the absolute parameter value on a display or use different LED colors to indicate a specific state.
    You can read more about Control Chain here.

  2. Usability changes
    Some small but very useful usability changes were made, following user requests.
    These include:

  • allow to change parameter ranges without having to re-learn a MIDI CC
  • allow to use pitchbend for midi learn
  • allow to delete the initial/first pedalboard preset
  • web interface tweaks (read more about this on the full changelog link below)

There’s also quite a few more changes and tweaks.
Visit to see all changes since v1.3.2.

The next time you open the MOD web interface you’ll receive an update notification.
Just click on the tooltip icon in the bottom-right when that happens, then ‘Download’ and finally ‘Upgrade Now’.
Wait for a few minutes while the MOD updates itself automatically. :slight_smile:

We hope you’re enjoying your MOD Duo.
Please let us know of any issues!


Please make sure to update your footswitch firmware after getting this update.
The update has fixes that help to make the connection more stable.

new upgrades are always cause for celebration :slight_smile:

Just for clarity, does the control chain stuff affect how MIDI controllers interact with the MOD Duo? Do we have more functionality with MIDI with this? I’m thinking specifically of being able to map multiple functions to a single MIDI CC… :slight_smile:


No, Control Chain is completely separate from MIDI.
Control Chain does not have notes (at least for now), it’s only for controlling parameters.
