Re: Can Any Kind Soul Make me a Diagram

Wow, I must be slipping! :oops:

The only change would be to use the Y-Cable from the Out of Loop 2 on GCX #2 and connect it to the In of Loops 3 and 7. The Out of Loop 1 to the In of Loop 2 will be a standard Mono cable.

I hope that helps!

Re: Can the PX8 switch channels on the mesa TC50?

Yes, a PX-8 or PX-8+ will recall stored presets on the TC-50. The PX-8 has three presets and the PX-8+ has 36 presets. Each preset will send a fixed MIDI Program Change message and you will set the amp to respond appropriately. Here are the steps to program the amp: 1. Select a preset on the PX-8 or...

Re: GCP with Eleven Rack question.

That is incredibly odd behavior for a Ground Control Pro! When Instant Access button #1 stops working, you say re-programming it fixes it, but is the data displayed on the screen for Instant access button #1 changing when it breaks? Basically, if you have it set to read "1. CH 01 CTL 25" does it sti...

Re: Struggling to activate loops

XMIT W/Preset actually sends the Control Change Data when a preset is selected, this is used when your device only is controlled via Control Changes. You need only to match the LED State, and don't necessarily need to send the Control Change data so you don't want this turned on. In order to make yo...

Re: Struggling to activate loops

There are a few possibilities here... 1. I wasn't able to quickly get a manual for the LS10 so I'm not sure if it does this, but make sure that these loops are not programmed to act in a momentary mode. 2. Make sure you are not sending conflicting MIDI data. If you are using both Program Change and ...

Re: GCX and Ground Control. Connections.

Hi John, I must apologize as I posed the question before reading the manuals. I will also be using a TC Gmajor2. More importantly, I will be using my volume pedal's "Tuner Out" jack. I love that the Ground Control's expression port can use my volume pedal and convert the movement to MIDI data. Usin...

Re: PX-8 Plus Insert Loop

The Insert does not function like another loop, it is simply a split between Loops 6 and 7. This can be used to connect a Volume Pedal so it is after any overdrives or to break up the loops to route Loops 1-6 to the front of an amp and have Loops 7 and 8 in the Effects Loop... those are the common u...

Re: PX8 + loss of sound

The problem is solved. The loss of sound came from a default to my patch cables! Glad you were able to solve the problem and that it was as simple as a failing patch cable! I would like to know if preselection mode is obliged to assign a channel to have a clean sound? A PX-8 Plus Preset can have an...

Re: Compressor Pedal for Metal?

I suppose I'd try an EQ pedal before looking to a Compressor here. I've had good luck with the MXR "KFK" 10-Band EQ... and if Kerry (F'n) King ain't metal, I don't know what is. \m/

What is your amp in this setup?

Re: Gcx and stereo rig sound issues

I am not 100% sure about using the MiniMixII this way, but I can offer that you would only need Loops 2 & 3 to be able to A/B/Y/Mute the two preamp sections. Also, you may want to use the Loop Sends rather than the Outs so you keep the Loop Status LEDs indicating ON for "Live"... 1. FX Send Amp #1 t...
