Re: Ground Control Pro with Line 6 M5

Also, what is the MIDI cable path in this setup?

Also, as a test, if you connect the Ground Control Pro MIDI Out directly to the M5 MIDI In does the M5 respond?

Re: GCP for Helix Native Software (mac)

You should be able to do at least some basic controls, the Ground Control Pro will send MIDI Program Changes and Control Change messages. No problem to connect the Ground Control Pro to a MIDI Interface.

I hope that helps!

Re: Mesa Boogie Triple Crown w/ Ground Control Pro

That should be MIDI Control Change 25, on whatever MIDI Channel (1-16) you are already using to control any of the the other amp functions. Unless you have changed it on the amp, or have multiple MIDI Devices programmed into the Ground Control Pro, you will likely be using MIDI Channel 1. On the Gro...

Re: Midi chain: Does the GCX has to come first?

Our switchers don't have to be first, but sometimes other MIDI gear can eat up our messages. Try it out in any order that is most convenient to wire up. For gear that only has a "MIDI Out", check in their programming menus for setting the MIDI Out as a MIDI Thru. If all else fails, you can get a MID...

Re: Can GP work via link with GCP ...?

The Original Ground Control does not have any of the Link Modes... it doesn't even have a MIDI IN ;) You can send Program Changes from the Original Ground Control to remotely recall presets on the Ground Control Pro. This would be just setting the original Ground Control to have its one MIDI Device ...

Re: Can a Pedal Switcher phantom power a 2nd Pedal Switcher?

Oops, not sure how I missed this one! To confirm, no the Pedal Switchers do not accept Phantom Power, so no, you cannot power a second one and have it provide to the first one. I seem to recall Pedal Switchers causing a buzz when powered on a daisy chain, but I no longer have two of them here to tes...

Re: ISO 5 shut down

I'm kind of surprised that Phantom Power from the console could have harmed anything here if you were using the XLR DI Output on the preamp. Exactly which model Fishman do you have? On the ISO-5, is the power LED dead as well as all outputs when the unit is plugged into a mains outlet? If it really ...

Re: Why go passive?

The expression pedal ports are designed such that they are putting 5V across a potentiometer and reading the voltage on the wiper. This is using the potentiometer in the pedal as a Voltage Divider. An active circuit intended for audio will likely produce wild results and could potentially be unhappy...
