How to Setup Manual Failover on the PlayAudio 12 with a Boss FS-6 Dual FootSwitch
If you rely heavily on tracks, you need a redundant rig and the PlayAudio12 from iConnectivity is the best solution for redundancy. The interface allows for automatic failover and manual failover. While automatic failover is convenient, manual failover allows for more control over when you switch between machines.
In this lesson from the Using the PlayAudio12 with Ableton Live course, Ableton Live Certified Trainer, Will Doggett shows you how to setup manual failover on the PlayAudio12 using the Boss FS-6 foot switch.
So cool! This is how we use the PA12, instead of auto failover. Another tip: you can use the single switch Boss FS-5L if you use a TRS-TS (mono) cable. TRS at the Control jack, TS at the foot switch.
Thanks, Will! What a resource.
Great to see you here, Matt! Thanks for the comment. I tried a normal TS cable with no success but I didn’t try a TRS-TS with my FS-5. Can’t wait to try that now, great solution!
Hey guys! Can you share the wiring connections for a working TRS-TS cable? I’d like to make a cable that works with the Boss FS-5L as footswitch. Thanks for your help!
If I had them-I’d be happy to! I just use the Boss FS-6 but in theory I imagine the TRS-TS cable could work.
