TC G-Force

I know, I know..... before anyone says anything I know this isn't the TC forum..... But I posted there, and it's falling on deaf ears. So I thought I'd post here too, seeing as there must be someone here that has a TC G-Force and could help me. I have my my expression pedal set up to adjust the glob...

Re: help!!...Switching my rack gear please!!

Hi, This is pretty easy, although I'm sure john Clark will chime in with other options. First of all I would not put the POD in the FX loop of the MP1 if you're using it for hi-gains and overdrives. I'm not 100% sure about the POD, but I know hi-gains and overdrives don't sound good in FX loops, alt...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Thanks John, all rewired as you suggested and it's working better than before. For one, the noise has gone, but also it appears to have solved the issue I had with the lower volume from one of the channels... Which is odd. The guitar is more dynamic with the buffer, I've only used it with a guitar c...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Thanks john, I'll have to rewire it slightly then, as currently I'm utilising both inputs in the tuner. one input is for the wireless, and the second input is wired to a front panel jack socket. If i use a guitar cable all i have to do is plug the cable into the socket and press the input selector o...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Right john, I have an update.... And quite interesting it is too. First I wired it as follows: Tuner -> Rear Panel Guitar Out Rear Panel Feed Thru -> Loop 5 In The result was the noise disappeared, but the sound coming out was very woolly, with no top end. Also the volume had dropped considerably. I...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Understood.....

I'll do that tomorrow, as it's now 23:14 here now and i'm off to bed. As an alternative can I connect it as follows to achieve the same result?

Tuner -> Rear Panel Guitar Out
Rear Panel Feed Thru -> Loop 5 In

I'll let you know how it goes

Cheers

Andy

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Hi John Yeah, the GCX is isolated, to a fashion. I've placed plastic washers between the GCX and the rails, however there is still a chance that contact is being made via the rack screw through the rack ear into the rail, if the screw is making contact on the inside of the rack ear hole. I have no i...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Right... Where do I start. I turned off the radio receiver which took that out of the equation, I also bypassed the wah totally so that's not in the loop. so the audio path is as follows: Korg Tuner Rear panel output -> GCX rear panel loop 5 in GCX rear panel loop 8 out -> Triaxis rear panel input T...

Re: GCX Switcher Troubleshooting

Great news, not so great that you've had to buy a new GCX for no reason.

I've had that before, where the channel number has changed, not on the floor controller but on my G-Force. Always worth checking the obvious first.

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Thanks John, the thing is I thought this was a quiet rig, and generally it is...... Until i put the fuzz face into the mix, then it sounds awful. When i turn the fuzz face off it's just drawn my attention to the noise that was originally there, albeit quite low.... I'll try all the steps you've sugg...
