JOYO PXL-Live Effect Pedal Loop Midi 8 or 2x4 Controller

The JOYO PXL-Live, the newest member of the JOYO PXL series programmable pedals controllers - pxl4,pxl8, pxl-pro. The JOYO PXL-Live is a very powerful pedal controller, it not only can be set to use dual 4 channels like the pxl pro with a total of 8 loop channels, but it is also designed with midi out, enabling you to trigger any kind of midi enabled amp or effect settings.

Send commands via midi cc and midi program to control your computer based recording software. For musicians who are beginning to juggle lots of equipment, the pxl-live will be the perfect pedal loop and midi controller enabling you to turn effects on or off in banks, without tap dancing all over the place.

Fully programmable

Dual 4 channel loop design
2 ×on board fully programmable trigger switch (relay)
1 X midi out
Midi cc and midi program change command are available simultaneously
Buffered bypass
Rated power supply voltage:dc 9v
Rated current consumption:220ma

editing loop combinations.
Editing triggers
trigger polarity editing

The main menu options of the pxl live are:

  • EH - Edit the high loops, also known as loop 2, or, if you are counting from 1-8, eh will edit loops 5-8.
  • EL - Edit the low loops, also known as loop 1, or, loops 1-4 (from right to left on the pxl-live)
  • ET - Edit the behaviour of the two trigger outputs when selecting a preset.
  • EB - Edit the behaviour of the two trigger outputs when switching the selected preset into bypass
  • EM - Edit trigger mode: switch between momentary or latch mode. Which one applies to your depends on the equipment you are trying to switch. Consult the manual of the gear you want to switch to identify which to use.
  • EP - Edit the polarity of the trigger. Is the light up trigger led on or is it off? This also depends on how your connected equipment works. Play around with this setting if your experience problems. Ma    under ma you can program two individual midi messages that are sent out when the preset is selected. Please consult the midi section of this manual for more information
  • MB - Under MB you can program two individual midi messages that are sent out when the preset is  switched to bypass. You might want to send program change message to your amp when putting the pxl-live into bypass so that you can play a distorted rhythm sound without any effects and switch to a clean sound with effects on when engaging the preset again. Please consult the midi section of this manual for more information.

A continuous controller can control and give values to a number of different devices: every midi enabled device is able to define which cc messages their device can receive. You probably know those little joysticks or wheels on keyboards/synths. They work in a similar way, sending cc messages for pitch and modulation. When you are changing the volume on a synthesizer sound, you are sending a cc message.

In our case with the JOYO PXL live, you can send a cc message to an amplifier to change the level of a certain channel, as long as the amp is set up to receive and react to that message. You can use it to change the delay time on a midi capable delay or even to control the looper functions (rec/overdub, play, stop) on delays that have continuous controllers mapped to those functions.

Midi channels - using the JOYO PXL Live with midi you can send 2 program changes to 2 separate devices on different channels, for example. Midi cables can carry up to 16 different midi streams on 16 different channels. Simply set your receiving device to the correct channel and it will only react to midi messages that are being sent on that channel and ignore everything else that might also be carried on the same cable. This way you can daisy-chain several devices and each device can be talked to independently.

The possibilities are endless and are only limited by the type of gear you have and by how creative you want to get with your pxl-live.

"Sometimes a song can require quite a complicated patch, this can mean something close to tap dancing on your pedals if you're not careful!  So that's where these pedal switches come in handy. Pre program your patches for ease of use for that crucial live situation when timing is everything!"  Matt UK product guru.

I've had a PXL Live for some time now and I've nothing but good things to say about it. It made my effect switching sooooo much simpler, I dont know how I got by without it. Super-simple to set up and program and no noise or discernable lag when switching. There are more fully-featured switchers out there but at twice the price. This switcher be can't be beaten for VFM. Highly recommended. If it got nicked, I'd buy another without hesitation.

This product is the best thing i have ever owned, i have ran 2 amps, 8 pedals and managed to manipulate all them perfectly with one press of a button. Why this product isn't more than the price above i don't know, so far i have met a lot of walls with my equipment and overcome every one of them with the looper. If there was any point id buy two just because it so good, thank you wizards of JOYO you absolute bunch of legends.

Guide - How to power your guitar effects and pedal board
There are a number of ways to power your guitar effects and choosing which method you use can make a difference to your board. Making sure you have the right supply will ensure if they come on, prevent them from getting damaged, or become noisy.  BatteriesPedals are made of electronics, so the power you use ensures that they stay on when you need them. Whilst the 1st series, 2nd series of JOYO pedals and DrJ pedals all can be powered with a 9v battery, this is not the best option to power a board, it is primarily convenient. Your pedal board will only sound as good as your cheape..
What Guitar Effects should you use for David Gilmour - Pink Floyd tone
We are often asked what pedals you should use to create some of the tones of David Gilmour/Pink Floyd. As with any tone chasing request, I always try and break down the elements of the sound that you hear. Each track is different, different pedals are used in different parts and of course having Davids fingers and guitar skills certainly helped him achieve his own sound. I do not think any one pedal could achieve it, to create the tones of David Gilmour unless you go for a multieffects unit and spend some time dialling it in and experimenting. There are c..

What Battery should I use in my guitar effect pedal.
Many guitar effect pedals can be powered by a battery which can reduce the number of wires in your pedalboard and make it more convenient to travel around with. The JOYO guitar effect pedals in Series 1, series 2 and Dr.J pedals can all be powered by a battery for convenience and often cited as a reason for buying. There are downsides to using batteries over a steady decent power supply, you have no idea what power you have left, if you use the wrong type of battery you do not get a satisfactory performance, finally we have an environmental impact to consider.   ..
