How to Remote Control an Overdrive Pedal via MIDI

In this video recorded in collaboration with The Guitar Channel (, we show you how to control via MIDI the Kernom Ridge overdrive pedal.

  1. I’m a new user of the Remote Control software together with the Kernom Ridge Pedal as seen in the video on this page. Here some questions:

    To change effects with PC and the remote software is no problem. But how can I save new created preset in desired preset number of th Kernom Ridge Pedal?? Where can I see the preset numbers of the pedal in the remote software??

    Is it possible to save different created presets in the remote software, which I can later then send to the Kernom Ridge Pedal to desired preset number??

    Remote control software is installed on my Acer Predator Helios 300 Laptop and Kernom Ridge Pedal midi-connected with IN/OUT of Cable Midimate II. Sending CC comands works fine but if I turn nobs on the Kernom Ridge Pedal, in Software the nobs do not ove. Is this normal???

    Thanks im andvance for your appreciate help.
