Press and hold the TREMOLO ON footswitch while powering up Flint.
Once both LEDs flash, release the footswitch.
Turn the MIX (EXP/MIDI JACK) knob to select the function of the rear panel’s EXP/MIDI jack. The REVERB ON LED will change color to indicate the current status as you turn the knob.
Expression Pedal mode: GREEN (default) – Allows continuous control over any of the knobs in any direction with a standard TRS expression pedal.
Favorite mode: AMBER – Allows you to recall a Favorite setting using a Strymon MiniSwitch.
Tap mode: RED – Allows you to set the speed of the tremolo via tap tempo using a Strymon MiniSwitch.
MIDI mode: BLUE – Allows for the selection of three presets using a Strymon MultiSwitch Plus. Full MIDI functionality is available by sending MIDI Program Change messages via 1/4″ TRS MIDI connection using a Strymon Conduit or MIDI EXP cable. Up to 300 presets are available via MIDI.
Press either footswitch to store the EXP/MIDI jack mode and begin using Flint.
RJM switchers, when working with multiple MIDI devices, changing channels on the PBC sends program changes to all of your devices in order, so the first PC that is sent from your switcher will be the first MIDI channel built in to your switcher. Our pedals, when configuring to MIDI channels 4-16, will sync themselves to the channel of the first PC they see. Below are the necessary steps to properly set MIDI channels 4-16 with your RJM switcher:
– Hold 1 and 3 on the switcher to get into setup
– Select Edit Presets
– Select any preset
– Move to the Strymon pedal entry
– Set your Strymon pedal into MIDI CHANNEL MODE
– On the switcher, press Val – or Val +
– The Strymon pedal will flash to confirm that it has been sent a MIDI PC and is now configured
– Press Val – or Val + to correct the PC number you just changed
(because you just edited your preset)
– Press Exit repeatedly to get out of setup
No. Unfortunately it is not possible to add the new functionality to older blueSky, Flint, Lex, Deco, DIG, or El Capistan pedals. The electronic/mechanical designs are different and the hardware is not interchangeable.
Each of our Strymon digital effect pedals (excludes OB.1) have the ability to be used with mono or stereo connections. Here are 3 different connection setups you can use with these pedals.
Mono Input => Mono Output
For Compadre, Riverside, and Sunset: Connect a standard mono TS instrument cable into the INPUT and connect a mono TS instrument cable to the OUTPUT of the pedal.
For blueSky and Ola: Connect a mono TS instrument cable into the LEFT INPUT and LEFT OUTPUT for a mono connection.
For BigSky, Mobius, NightSky, TimeLine, and Volante: Connect a mono TS instrument cable into the LEFT INPUT and LEFT OUTPUT for a mono connection. On the TimeLine and Mobius ONLY, make sure that the switch on the back of the pedal is set to STEREO IN/OUT.
For all other Strymon two footswitch Strymon pedals (including Iridium, Zelzah, and V2 pedals with mono/ stereo switch), connect a standard mono TS instrument cable into the INPUT and connect a mono TS instrument cable to the LEFT OUTPUT of the pedal.
Mono Input => Stereo Output
For Mono INPUT and Stereo OUTPUT on our small 2 footswitch pedals: Connect a standard mono TS instrument cable into the INPUT and connect a mono TS instrument cable to both the LEFT and RIGHT OUTPUTS of the pedal. (excludes Compadre, Riverside, and Sunset)
For blueSky and Ola: Connect a mono TS instrument cable into the LEFT INPUT and a mono TS instrument cable to both the LEFT and RIGHT OUTPUTS for stereo output.
For BigSky, Mobius, NightSky, TimeLine, and Volante: Connect a mono TS instrument cable into the LEFT INPUT and both LEFT and RIGHT OUTPUTS for stereo output. On the TimeLine and Mobius ONLY, make sure that the switch on the back of the pedal is set to STEREO IN/OUT.
Stereo Input => Stereo Output
For Stereo input and Stereo output on our small 2 footswitch pedals (except V2 pedals, Iridium, Zelzah, blueSky and Ola), you must first open up the pedal to move the internal jumper over the LEFT 2 pins to set the pedal for TRS Stereo input.
Once the pedal is set for TRS Stereo input, make sure to use a TRS Stereo cable into the INPUT and connect a mono TS instrument cable to both the LEFT and RIGHT OUTPUTS of the pedal.
For blueSky and Ola: Connect a mono TS instrument cable into the LEFT and RIGHT INPUTS along with both LEFT and RIGHT OUTPUTS for stereo input and output. The internal jumper on these pedals does not need to be adjusted to work in stereo and should be left in its default position (connecting the left 2 pins when viewed from below).
For BigSky, Mobius, NightSky, TimeLine, and Volante: Connect a mono TS instrument cable into the LEFT and RIGHT INPUTS along with both LEFT and RIGHT OUTPUTS for stereo input and output. On the TimeLine and Mobius ONLY, make sure that the switch on the back of the pedal is set to STEREO IN/OUT.
For V2 pedals, Iridium, and Zelzah: Using a TRS -> dual TS cable, connect the TRS stereo cable into the input of the pedal, and a mono TS instrument cable to both LEFT and RIGHT OUTPUTS of the pedal. You will need to flip the switch on the back panel of the pedal from MONO to STEREO to enable stereo input.
