Re: Controling the Channel/Crunch/Effects loop switching on a Peavey 6505 Plus head with midi?

Are you maybe trying to use a regular MIDI Cable between the Control Switcher MULTI Jack and the Footswitch Jack on the amp? If so, immediately unplug that cable from your amp! The MULTI jack needs a custom made cable to interface most amps and the 6505+/5150 II is certainly one of them. We can make...

Re: GCX/Ground Control Pro Noise issue

If you power the Overdrive on a battery do you get the same noise?

Re: Gcx and stereo rig sound issues

The diagram shown upthread should work as a great guideline for this setup. In that diagram Loop 4 is selecting the preamp sections via the FX Sends in order to A/B switch between them. The pedals are feeding to both preamp sections but they are not ever used at the same time, it is just easier, and...

Re: Gcx gcp carvin legacy

OK, so the original Legacy amp used a TRS jack for the footswitch. To correctly control the footswitch functions you will need an Insert Point Cable. This is like a Y cable but it has a single TRS (stereo) end that breaks out to two TS (mono) ends, sometimes labeled "Tip" and "Ring". The TS ends wil...

Re: PX8 + loss of sound

Does each pedal work as it should when it is the only effect selected?

As a test, if you directly connect the problematic pedals do you get the same problem? For instance...

2. OCD to Pickle Vibe.
3. Pickle Vibe to amp.

Re: Advice for Noise gate

I'm suggesting the Sentry gate path be in the amp's effects loop... this places it after the preamp section so it catches any hissing from higher gain settings, but it needs to be before the G-Major2 so it doesn't cut off delay repeats or reverb tails. I'd plan on connecting it direct into the effec...

Re: GCP, GCX, Strymon Setup

I think the outcome is the same, but to clarify on how the GCX is controlled... It isn't that the GCX is responding to a Program Change, its that once a GCX is enabled, the Ground Control Pro Presets are programmed with the state of all GCX loops. Each preset then sends the string of all eight Contr...

Re: GCP, GCX, Strymon Setup

The Ground Control Pro does not need to be in 4 Presets per Bank Mode to control a GCX. Where the 4 Presets per Bank Mode comes in is if you want to control individual GCX loops within a preset and/or for controlling other parameters on a MIDI device like bypass or tap tempo for instance. If you use...

Re: PX-8 Plus: FX Loop Problems

So there was no hum when you had the jumpers set to Quiet Switching, just the tonal change? did the hum happen even with all loops bypassed? Just to be sure we have things connected properly, here is a quick rundown of the necessary connections. All connections should be made directly with a single ...
