In the following Help Desk article, we discuss the optimal means of connecting ReVolt Guitar and OPUS for the ultimate Fly-Rig.
For MIDI communication between ReVolt and OPUS, connect a 3.5mm (1/8-inch) TRS jack to 3.5mm (1/8-inch) TRS jack cable between the MIDI OUT of ReVolt Guitar and the MIDI IN of OPUS.
When pressing one of ReVolt Guitar’s channel footswitches, the device will send a Program Change (PC) MIDI Message to OPUS. Preset changes in OPUS are triggered via these PC MIDI messages. Configuration of the PC MIDI messages are done within ReVolt Guitar’s Setup Menu, details of which can be accessed here: https://wiki.two-notes.com/doku.php?id=revolt_Guitar:revolt_Guitar_user_s_manual#midi_setup
In terms of optimal audio connections between OPUS and ReVolt Guitar, place OPUS in the FX loop of ReVolt.
For any spatial FX (including Reverb and Delay) please place these after OPUS. By configuring your connectivity in this manner, you ensure that your spatial effects affect your total signal without colouration of the effects-processed signal by OPUS’ TSM Poweramp emulation and Post FX suite.
For integration of drive, fuzz and distortion pedals, we recommend placing these between your instrument and the instrument input of ReVolt.
You can also place effects (your modulation pedals for example) in-between ReVolt’s effects loop SEND and OPUS’ input, just like you would do in a traditional amplifier rig with an effects loop.
Finally, connect the last pedal's output to ReVolt's effects loop RETURN to close the signal chain, and connect the XLR DI Output of ReVolt to a PA, mixer or interface to hear your end-to-end signal.
