Re: Control Output level

I'm afraid you can't program volume levels into the Ground Control or the GCX, I believe you can only achieve this by using an expression pedal plugged into either exp 1 or exp 2 on the ground Control. This would then control the global output volume via midi on the D-Two (providing you have the D-T...

Re: Control Output level

Do you want to control the actual output level, or just the effect level?

Re: GCP/GCX/Kemper Power Rack - Pedal weirdness

This is probably way off, but in the Kemper is there a way of calibrating the pedal sweep... I know I had a similar issue with my rig. I have an Ernie Ball volume pedal that I use as an expression pedal that's plugged into the Ground Control, and I forgot to calibrate the sweep on the pedal..... It ...

Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

For a from the ground up" build delay is possible.... Tremolos maybe not so, I'd need to get a schematic. The other option is a kit. There are a number of kits out there for Analogue delay and tremolo, that I could build for you it really depends on what you're looking for as regards delay time. nor...

Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

Regarding my pedals.... They are all hand made, with hand etched PCB's. Normally clones of classic pedals. The last one I built was an exact clone of the 18v Colorsound Power Boost, I made 2 one for me and one for a customer. The PCB is a 121 copy of an original, and the pedal performs as per the or...

Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

Great stuff.... :D

I learned to solder building my rack..... It's all good character building stuff, as I now make my own effects pedals :)

Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

Hello and welcome! As a test, can you try plugging your guitar directly into the In of Loop 1? The noise you have might just be due to a ground loop in the rig. If this does solve the main noise issue, you can lift the chassis ground inside the GCX or isolate the GCX chassis from the rack rails usi...

Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

If you can afford Evidence go for it..... Regarding the rack pedal draw... cable tie the audio cables from the pedals and secure with these http://s7g3.scene7.com/is/image//ae235?src=ae235/38890_P&$prodImageMedium$ don't let the cables flap about, if you secure them to the draw, then secure them to ...

Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

You probably won't need to spend that amount of money... Make them yourself, it's a lot cheaper. I wired my whole rack for about £75 (plus the jack plugs), the thing that bumps the cost up is the jack plugs. Please please don't buy cheapo plugs off EBay, they really are crap. I've been there and got...

Re: NOISE, NOISE, NOISE...

Great... i thought so... just checking ;) start with cabling..... Including power. Don't fall into the trap of naturally assuming that just because they were OK on your pedal board, they're OK now...... It only needs 1 cable to throw a spanner in the works due to dodgy shielding or a broken wire and...
