Re: GCX acting as if normal'd

It would appear that this GCX has in fact been modified to do exactly what you are seeing. It isn't an uncommon mod to find out in the wild but it does render making rig changes rather difficult. I'd first talk to the seller to try to get a rundown on exactly what has been done inside this GCX. Alte...

Re: GCP & Eleven Rack - Instant Access Lights

You need to program the appropriate state of the Instant Access LEDs for each Ground Control Pro preset to match the Eleven Rack patch you are recalling. Here is how to do that... 1. Call up the Ground Control Pro preset you want to edit. 2. Press any of the Instant Access buttons that should be act...

Re: Will a HEX work with an old Commander?

HEX will work with a Commander using the Program Change message the Commander sends with each preset. On the HEX you will need to enable MIDI Program Changes on MIDI Channel 1. After that you will be able to recall a Commander preset, set the HEX Loops how you would like and save the loops on HEX by...

Re: GCP, PX8+ amd HX Stomp

The Ground Control Pro of course will send both Program Change and Control Change messages. The Presets generally send the Program Changes, and Instant Access buttons each send a single Control Change. If you haven't already, look to the MIDI Continuous Controller On/Off section of the Ground Contro...

Re: GCP and Dunlop DVP3 expression pedals

The Expression portion of the DVP3 uses a 10K potentiometer. By itself, a single 10K would be fine, but once you connect two at once to the Ground Control Pro the combined load is dragging our internal reference voltage down slightly... this results in the Ground Control Pro never reading a full val...

Re: TS808 polarity with VL 2Plus

If it has the original style 1/8" (3.5mm) Mini Plug type jack then it would be described as "Tip Positive" and it would absolutely be fine to use the Mini Plug cable that comes with a Pedal Power 2+ connected directly to the pedal. These Re-Issue pedals came with a little adapter cable to accept the...

Re: Sparkle drive not working in pedal chain

Does the Sparkle Drive work when used on its own?

Do you maybe have a stereo cable connected to its Input jack?

Re: Pedal Power 2 Plus lifespan

When is it time to replace the Pedal Power 2 Plus? Does the unit last longer than 5 years? I gig with it a couple of times per month and have recently noticed volume fluctuations. I've had it for approx 4 and half years. Pedals are connected correctly. Volume dropouts would be way more likely to be...

Re: Pcm80 bybass using Ground Control Pro issue

Yes, the "Transmit with Preset" setting is a Latching type action... it will send Data Value 0 for OFF and 127 for ON. I don't remember if the PCM80 is fixed at requiring a Momentary action for Bypass via MIDI. Just a quick thing I see in the manual suggests to me that there is at least a chance thi...

Re: Two Amps, One GCpro

The Instant Access buttons are Global and they will only send a single Control Change message, so unfortunately your fears are sound. These are two different rigs (even if only just the amp is different) and would require two different setups.

Sorry for the trouble!
