12V DC ok for DMC Ground Control?

Hello! Currently rewiring my rack stuff and have a phantom box to power a non-VL thing that'll take 9-12V AC or DC. I want to have my good old trusty GC as a spare and/or other option if I wanna travel light or am playing to an audience of drunken animals with no floor pedalboard though! Ideally I w...

Midi Firmware upgrade for pedal switcher?

Hello! Now the PX-8 is out and both it, and the GCX, will work either automatically via a GCP configuring them with sysex, or via preset CCs. Is there any likelihood the pedal switcher will get the same treatment, rather than only work with the sysex config? My pedal switchers are great, but since I...

Re: Pedal Switchers via CC messages?

Thanks John. Yep, I'm fine with the GC by itself, was just trying to get how to use something else. I've cracked it and get the scheme now. So after that sysex command 2x PSs become 80-83 and 84-87. Similarly if there were 2 GCXs on te end of the chain after the PSs, after the sysex, they will then ...

Re: Pedal Switchers via CC messages?

I have the 2 PSs already. The GCX is great if you wanna put your pedals in a rack and never touch them. I like mine by my feet though so I can use expression pedals/fuzz probe plate/tap tempo/hold functions/generally twiddle knobs in front of me, etc. 1 PS is in front of the amp, 1 in the loop. Like...

Will that sysex command configure both pedal switchers? Then use the next 4 ccs for the 2nd pedal switchers?

Any more related useful midi info for 2 pedal switchers?

Re: Pedal Switchers via CC messages?

Any way I can control it with other things too, other than the GCP? So I can control it from computers and other midi stuff? Can I program the pedal switcher the same way as that control switcher manual works or did you think I meant control switcher nyteowl? And put it in midi cc receiving mode by ...

Pedal Switchers via CC messages?

Hello! The GCX says it can be controlled via CC80-87 on channel 16. Pedal switchers appear to a ground control like half a GCX. So if I've got 2 pedal switchers daisy-chained can I use Cc80-87 on them or does it not work like that and magical sysex stuff happens too? What about 2 GCXs or 4 pedal swi...

Mondo dimensions?

What size is the mondo? It has dimensions for the PP2+ and 4x4, but can't find the mondo dimensions on the web site or in the user manual anywhere.

Re: Powering 2 pedal switchers

Btw, is there a recommended distance the VL pedal power devices should be from things like wahs? Obviously it's gonna be quite well shielded for RF emissions but will it give off magnetic emissions? Obviously aluminium isn't ferrous like steel so won't have as much magnetic shielding effect. But the...

Re: Powering 2 pedal switchers

Where does your current setup get the Phantom Power from... like what is the power supply in the rack? the Diezel Herbert provides phantom power normally. It's got a MIDI in with 12V DC and an XLR for the custom Diezel foot switch. This powers a (floating) Ground Control fine, but trying to power a...
