Re: Control switcher question

Hello, I have exactly the same problem. Tested all configurations according to the manual. Midi channel on the Helix and switcher is 1. PC und CC is activated on the switcher (LED 1 & LED 2). CC is default on the switcher (80-83). When I send for example a CC80 from the Helix I would it expect to a...

Re: GCX + GCP + Marshall JCM2000 DSL100 channel switch issue

The behavior suggests that the loops are connected together somehow. If there is no other cable connected to Loop 4, and this was purchased used, then it would seem likely that someone had this GCX modified to series connect the loops internally. It isn't an uncommon mod but it severely limits the G...

Re: GCX + GCP + Marshall JCM2000 DSL100 channel switch issue

Does Loop 4 have any other cable connected to it besides the one leading to the footswitch jack on the amp?

Did you get this GCX new?

Re: Newbie building a Rack

I believe your diagram setup would be great. Right on! For heat concerns you could leave a blank space above the worst offenders... the preamps and the power amp. The 2:90 does have a fan in it so you'll want to be sure that is as clear as possible (ie. not a bunch of cables tucked in front of the f...

Re: Gcx, GCP and triaxis using both outputs

Oh sorry, yes you can absolutely still use the GCX for other effects even if you don't use it for the G-Major 2. You can route any number of GCX loops to the front of your Triaxis, so far you've mentioned 2 pedals and that you want to add more so lest say four loops for now... your front end effects...

Re: PX8 Plus and L6 HX Stomp

According to what I see in the HX Stomp manual it looks like Program Changes can only recall HX Stomp Presets. Snapshots require MIDI Control Change messages and the PX-8 Plus does not have any provision to send Control Changes.

I hope that helps!

Re: PX8 Plus loop "insert"

Good evening, I am new to the forum. I purchased a dingbat with the PX8 and mondo and spent a great deal of time getting it all connected and up and running. It is vital that I am able to create presets and patches that I can switch between quickly. I really only have two issues right now. The firs...

Re: Gcx, GCP and triaxis using both outputs

For the two preamp outputs, you would use two GCX Loops... but more likely would be that you would just skip the GCX completely for this part of the rig and wire the G-Major 2 directly in between the preamp and power amp as you have been doing.

I hope that helps!

Re: midi "Multi"

The MULTI jack is not MIDI it just uses the same 5 Pin DIN jack type. The MULTI jack is the four make-or-break switches referenced to a common ground for use with a cable (usually custom made) that interfaces to an amplifier's footswitch jack when the individual 1/4" jacks cannot be used. We can mak...

Re: GCX System with OD pedals

The loops on the GCX are all independent from each other so its no problem to have any combination of them in front of an amp vs in the FX loop of the amp. Here is a diagram of a very similar setup. http://www.voodoolab.com/gcxdiagrams/01-Pedals_FXloop_AmpSw.pdf In this diagram Loops 1-4 are routed ...
