Re: Y connectors and Stereo Electric Mistress

The 18/24v Y cable cannot be used in reverse... which is why we make the Split Output Y cable! The Split Output Y cable can be used to power two pedals from a single output as long as the total current draw of the two pedals does not exceed the rated limit for the output used.

Re: Ground Control Pro CC/PC question

There is currently no user definable CC message capability when in 10 Presets per Bank mode. You can enable a GCX that is not being used within the Ground Control Pro and use those CCs if the gear you are controlling is programmable for the CC message and can accept them on MIDI channel 16. GCX-1 = ...

Re: I´ve got two GCX Switcher & Ground Control units...

For the power problem: Are you sure the Power Supply is working? Does it power the Ground Control Pro when no MIDI cables are connected? Have you tried a different MIDI cable out of the first Ground Control Pro? For the GCXs: A single Ground Control Pro can control up to 4 GCX switchers. Have you en...

Re: I´ve got two GCX Switcher & Ground Control units...

Yes, when running two Ground Control Pro units together like this only the second one will receive phantom power, the first one must be powered using the supplied adapter.

Re: Old GCX audio switcher

All models of the GCX respond to MIDI the same way. The only major change to the GCX has been the way the front panel jacks work. An older GCX is labeled "Feedthru 1 and 2" where both of these inputs are buffered. Feedthu 1 will split to both rear panel jacks like the Guitar In on the current model ...

Re: Question about GCX buffered Gutiar In/Out...

The op-amp is located on the PRE/PWR board, directly behind the front panel jacks... you can't miss it. Older units may have the op-amp soldered directly to the board.

Re: Musicom EFX MKII and PP2P

“14.5V/12V (unregulated) at 50mA/200mA+” is expressing the expected voltage with a known current draw. An unregulated power supply has the voltage vary with the load while a regulated supply will keep the same voltage across a wide current range. In this case we are saying that a 50mA load will yiel...

Re: Question about GCX buffered Gutiar In/Out...

You can check that the buffer's op-amp is seated properly in its socket, or check for any loose connections on the front panel jacks. But basically it sounds as if you bought a broken GCX. A dead buffer is not at all a common occurrence, which is why we would rather just see it for ourselves… we can...

Re: GCX connection

Yes, you can route the buffer anywhere in the signal chain you wish. Show us some pictures when you get your rack all finished.
