Re: GCX and Ground Control Pro - can order of effects be swapped?

Hello, and welcome to the forum! Yes, you can feed a signal to your tuner from the Rear Panel Thru jack. Conversely, as long as your tuner mutes when activated, you could feed your tuner from the Rear Panel Guitar Out jack and then connect the Tuner Out to the Loop1 In jack, thus leaving the Guitar...

Re: Channel Switching + Pedal Switching

Hello, and welcome!! You're on the right track, but while you can configure different PX-8 Plus pre-sets to engage certain effects pedals, I can find nothing in the PX-8 Plus manual that indicates it is capable of performing Channel Switching functions. Have you considered connecting a Voodoo Lab C...

Re: GCX & GCP help question

I haven’t had that Mesa amp in quite some time. To answer your question about my “A” rig, this was my primary rig, which consisted of 2 preamps (11 Rack being the primary & a Line 6 POD Pro XT as the backup and also for more effects), Stereo power amp, a G-Major, BBE sonic maximizer, Lexicon MPX-1....

Re: GCX & GCP help question

You made reference to a Mesa Dual Rectifier that you no longer have. Were you using that Mesa amp in your "A" rig before and are now replacing it with the Marshall? If so, connecting the Marshall in the same way you had the Mesa connected should do the trick. As for Channel Switching on the Marshal...

Re: PLEASE HELP SETUP 2 GCX's

Thanks for all the advice I'm just waiting to get everything setup. The last question I had was do I need to connect the GCX's with another MIDI cable? Or will I be able to control the GCX #2 with just a regular patch cable from the guitar/pedal loops Since guitar cables do not carry MIDI informati...

Re: Effect in multiple paths

I will update the docs and send again when i finish, ok? Do you know some software that i can make these diagram easily? Have you gone t...

Re: How to connect GCX + GCP + TASCAM TA 1VP + Behringer FX2000

Good morning, and welcome, Connecting your TA 1VP and FX2000 is fairly straightforward. Just connect the GCX MIDI OUT to the FX2000 MIDI IN, and the FX2000 MIDI OUT to the TA 1VP MIDI IN. This will allow you to control both via your GCPro. Next step is to connect the FX2000 to your GCX, in a loop t...

Re: Effect in multiple paths

That's a ton of pedals, amigo, and I can see why it's such a daunting task sussing out how to properly connect them all. Since I've been out of this game for more than a few years now I'm going to defer to John's wisdom, but if you haven't already considered it, making all the GCX specific connecti...

Re: Effect in multiple paths

I hear what you're saying about that $2K price tag, which was the primary reason I went with a Voodoo Lab GCPro/GCX package back in the day. However, Switchblade GLs can be found on the used market (Craig's List, eBay, Reverb) for less, and sometimes even half that much, if one is patient. Let us k...
