Title
(EN) FOOT-OPERATED AUDIO EFFECTS DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'EFFETS AUDIO ACTIONNÉ AU PIED
Abstract
(EN)
A foot-operated audio effects device (10) receives, stores and operates at least one software audio effect plug-in (86). At least two of the audio effect plug-in (86) may be designed to operate under different operating systems. The device (10) may receive multiple audio input streams (38, 40). Users can control at least one parameter of the audio effect plug-ins (86). The device (10) may include a mass storage device (72) which stores audio which has been generated within the device (10). In use, the device (10) may be connected to a computer (110) and software audio effect plug-ins (86) transferred to and stored in the device (10). The computer (110) may be used to configure parameters of the audio effect plug-in (86). Those parameters may be stored within the computer (110).

L'invention concerne un dispositif d'effets audio actionné au pied (10), qui reçoit, stocke et actionne au moins un module d'extension d'effet audio de logiciel (86). Au moins deux des modules d'extension d'effet audio (86) peuvent être conçus pour fonctionner dans différents systèmes d'exploitation. Le dispositif (10) peut recevoir de multiples flux d'entrée audio (38, 40). Des utilisateurs peuvent piloter au moins un paramètre des modules d'extension d'effet audio (86). Le dispositif (10) peut comprendre une mémoire de masse (72) qui stocke l'audio qui a été généré à l'intérieur du dispositif (10). Lors de l'utilisation, le dispositif (10) peut être relié à un ordinateur (110) et les modules d'extension d'effet audio de logiciel (86) peuvent être transmis au dispositif (10) et y être stockés. L'ordinateur (110) peut être utilisé pour configurer des paramètres du module d'extension d'effet audio (86). Ces paramètres peuvent être stockés dans l'ordinateur (110).
