    Can someone help me? I know literally nothing about MIDIs!
    I’ve recently got a Boss RC10R, and I’m loving it. It has MIDI ins and outs. I know you can connect extra controls and clocks etc, but what I really want to do is use the MIDI out as a dedicated out for the drum beats. I’ve checked the parameter guide and, although it read like a foreign language, I think it said this is possible. But there’s also a message saying that connected audio devices to the midi will cause malfunctions???
    Can anyone with experience of this pedal or knowledge of MIDIs help me?
  2. The MIDI ports will only accept or send digital commands, never audio even they look like an aux. jack. These are there to send, receive and pass through timing and start/stop/fill commands.
    Within the parameter menu in the pedal is a setting to split the audio so the loop and dry signal are output on A and the rhythm from B.

    Cheers for your help man. I thought that might be the case. So what does
    “You can use note-on message from an external MIDI device to play the rhythm sound module built into the RC-10R.” mean??
    Is it just talking about some way of triggering the rhythms? Sorry. Like I said, I know absolutely nothing about MIDI!
