Prostage has released software version 2.0 for all MIDI foot controllers, the switching systems and the System Manager software (Mac & PC).

The big update provides native support for Kemper Profiler, Fractal Audio Axe-FX, Avid Eleven Rack and other digital amplifiers. The new "Easy Setup" lets you configure your entire guitar rig and your sounds in a very simple way. In addition, the new software provides the ability to manage your songs and arrange them in different setlists. Work with songs and setlists rather than just recalling presets!

Along with the software update, the big tuner & text display is now available. It shows the song and preset names, or the performance and slot names of the Kemper Profiler. In addition, it displays the tuner of the Profiler or Axe-Fx. The large (1-inch) letters are easy to read in all lighting conditions.

The new System Manager software and the firmware are available for free download on the website:

The Buffer Pedal | Booster | Impedance Matcher is a practical problem solver for wiring guitar racks. It can be used as a Guitar Line Driver | Buffer Pedal, meaning the first device in the signal chain to compensate for the sound loss due to long guitar cables.
Or in a loop of the XDS | XLS as a simple solo boost.
Further, it can be used in a single loop in front of an effects unit to match its impedance.

The X05 footswitch is a small MIDI foot controller that lets you recall a freely selectable number of presets (up to 128). The presets are organized in banksteps of five, or grouped as songs with five sounds each. Thanks to the compact design, the X05 fits into the the case cover for transportation.

In combination with the required Prostage XTMpro adapter or XDS | XLS Loop & Switch system, the X05 manages the complete MIDI gear, amp channels and stompboxes. Tap and Sideckick functions round off the features of the X05 MIDI foot controller.

The programming is very simple and easy using the free System Manager software (Mac & PC).

The Prostage foot controllers are connected using a standard microphone cable to the XTMpro adaptor respectively XDS | XLS Loop & Switch system. The cable transmits the MIDI data and also supplies the foot controller with power (more infos about the StageWire technology ).

The connectors are positioned in a way that prevents the plugs from damage by treading. The singer may therefore confidently tread with full force onto the connectors.

Up to 14 Prostage foot controllers can be interconnected directly. Thus, several foot controllers can be used in different places of the stage or even an additional foot controller for the guitar tech.

Build your own 19“ effects device using your preferred stompboxes! Replace an effect unit whenever you like. Your pedalboard in rack size!

Using the innovative Prostage XDS guitar pedal looper, you can remotely switch your effects pedals. The 19" drawer provides space for eight stompboxes (size "Boss"), where they are well protected from flying beer cans and water bottles. Also the cable clutter on the front edge of the stage is history. During the show, the open drawer gives you convenient access to the pots, without having to kneel down on the floor.

Compared to conventional pedalboards, this guitar pedal looper provides much higher reliability, better audio quality as well as a faster assembling and disassembling. All you need is one cable between the effect rack and the front of the stage.
The "true bypass" circuit sends the signal only to the used effects (no signal loss and no noise caused by non-used effects).

The floor effects are remotely switched by a MIDI foot controller. Using the eight switches and the store button at the XDS, the stompboxes can also be switched manually and presets can be stored. Further programming is done very simply and easy using the free System Manager software (Mac & PC).

In addition, the XDS guitar pedal looper offers six power supplies for the effects, a StageWire port, a comprehensive MIDI mapping to control other MIDI devices as well as a tap tempo function. As an alternative, the Tap Relay output can also be used for switching amp channels (per preset programmable)

Graham Fenton about the Remote WahWah:

I am delighted with your Prostage equipment! I think my review says it all:

I recently upgraded my rig with the desire to have the minimum number of cables going from front of stage to back. Using a wireless link for the guitar, I managed to get to only 1 cable going from me to the amp- and that is the midi cable from the foot controller. One problem! - having tried all the effects processors out there nothing had a Wah effect that sounded anywhere near ‘real’. I soon realised that the Wah pedal HAS to be between the guitar and amp input, not in the effects loop. So my choice was to give up and have multiple cables again or use the Prostage remote Wah. Boy am I pleased with result! Not only does it replicate my original Cry Baby, but I can have dozens of different Wah/boost/contour effects linked to different patches- the possibilities are almost endless. Add that to the Midi mapping capabilities of the XTM-Pro, which has turned my foot-controller into something far more customisable, the system is perfect for me. Don’t hesitate, if you want a simplified Midi setup, no more tripping over cables, multiple Wah and boost sounds, and more versatility from your MIDI controller- get one!

I wish you the best of luck with your products as they are really well thought out, AND.... the documentation is the most simple and understandable MIDI documentation I have seen.

Prostage - Your specialist for fully remote controllable guitar rigs.

Prostage develops and manufactures devices for controlling guitar rigs. Prostage's aim is to process all guitar signals inside the rack. The front of the stage only comprises remote control units. Realtime effects such as the pure analog Remote WahWah are controlled with an expression pedal. Using a MIDI Foot Controller you switch your Amp channels and stompboxes which are fitted in the XDS Loop System, a 19-inch drawer with integrated true bypass looper and power supplies for guitar effects. Sound and dynamic losses due to long guitar cables are history!

The Prostage MIDI Foot Controller and Loper | Switcher are interconnected via StageWire. StageWire was developed by Prostage specifically for stage use. This stage-prove MIDI connection provides bidirectional communication of multiple devices via just one standard microphone cable from device to device. Further, StageWire also includes phantom power for the foot controllers.

Prostage was founded by Lukas Truninger, a Swiss experienced audio engineer and backliner. Lukas has worked with several international touring bands, such as Krokus or Pepe Lienhard Orchestra (Udo Jürgens), during the 1990s and early 2000s, gathering a wealth of experience which has contributed to many construction details of the Prostage devices. Today, Wolf Hoffmann from "Accept" and "Flyleaf"'s Jared Hardmann are only two of many guitarists successfully using Prostage products on their extended tours.

The Prostage Remote WahWah / MIDI Rack WahWah is an effect unit to be installed inside the guitar rack. It is remotely controlled with an expression pedal via MIDI. The advantage of a rack mounted effects unit is obvious, because you need several meters of guitar cable less and the associated sound and dynamic losses are omitted.

The MIDI Rack Wah is built with a 100% analog audio circuit - identical to a standard #WahWah effect - using a Fasel coil. Thus, the guitar signal does not have to pass AD/DA converters and retains its natural dynamics.

The effect and the most important settings such as the frequency range of the WahWah are controlled via MIDI. You can store presets with different WahWah sounds, and the device can also be used as a volume pedal as well as level, contour or treble booster.
The Rack Wah comes with 10 factory presets. To create your own presets, you will either need a software sequencer with a MIDI interface or the Prostage XTMpro adapter (or XDS | XLS).

The free Prostage System Manager software for XTMpro | XDS | XLS provides a clearly arranged window for the configuration of the Remote WahWah. MIDI knowledge is not required.

If you like to program the Remote WahWah with a software sequencer / MIDI interface, MIDI knowledge (Sysex) is required.

The X10 MIDI foot pedal lets you recall up to 999 presets. Various operating modes are available:
- Standard MIDI foot pedal with bank steps of 10
- "Keyboard Style": first, enter the preset number, then confirm with 'enter'.
- Bottom row for presets (with bank steps of 5), top row for direct access switches (CC)
- Organization into songs & sounds

In combination with the required Prostage XTMpro adapter or XDS | XLS Loop & Switch system, the X10 foot pedal manages the complete MIDI gear, amp channels and stompboxes. Tap and Sideckick functions as well as the large 1 inch display round off the features of the X10.

The programming is very simple and easy using the free System Manager software (Mac & PC).
