Edge's controler is a Skrydstrup SC1
http://www.skrydstrup.com/SC1.htm

It comes with two extensions, the SC XT http://www.skrydstrup.com/XT.htm and the SC XT+ http://www.skrydstrup.com/XT+.htm

Together of course with a battery of expression and volume pedals.

this is awesome! does anyone have pictures of the end of the board? (the side closest to the setlist) I created a paper and i know where each effect is placed on the skrydstrup except for the last 3 on the end of the board(closest to the setlist)

Ok i know edge uses that wah for elevation but where is the Rab Fuzz places? in the rack? on the pedal board? or with the pedals on top of the rack?

Can I ask a quick question: You see in the last pic there of the foot controller, what's the white thing beside edge? I saw a pic of that on the vertigo DVD, it seems to be a box with some handwriting on it, and 2 white pedals below the writing...?

The white thing is a peice of paper called the setlist, a setlist is the list of songs they're going to play that night.To see what the 2 white pedals, go here..

Ah, I was wondering if that was it. I always thought it was either the setlist, or else a list of what order to turn the effects on in...

Amazing that they still need setlists when they are generally so predictable from start to finish. Now a list containing which settings and presets for which song, that I can understand. I have to keep one right next to my Behringer midi controler otherwise I'm in trouble.

look. . . as i understand it, the Skrydstrup (or however it's spelled) has a ton of patches which each have certain amps/effects turned on and off. Edge uses a patch for each song, so between songs all he has to do is go to the next patch, and all the effects and amps he needs are turned on. then, if he needs to turn on a distortion or whatever, he just presses an individual button for that effect. it doesn't seem too complicated, as long as the patches are lined up with the setlist.

hence why the skrydstrup display shows the name of each song when it is played and if you watch the documentary that was on vh1 or mtv or whatever, you hear edge ask dallas "which patch number is Bad?"

I use midi controlers myself. I know the drill. Which is why it amazes me that he needs a setlist but not a patchlist. Because there will be an aweful lot patching going on during the show, including bank up/down. I'm in a Radiohead coverband and for one song I have to literally tapdance between several patches/banks in the space of mere seconds. If I take the moment to really get in the mood of the song I could end up selecting the wrong patch. So I don't really need a setlist, but my patchlist lies next to the controller for sure.
