Sweet setup! I'm a little new with how midi works myself, but I learned a ton working on getting my whammy to talk with my GCP and the expression pedal.

You might look into the Continuous Control Channels (CCs) that each preset might respond to? There might be a CC for getting the effect to go into bypass mode.

I'm not familiar with the Eventide stuff but for every setting on the whammy there is CC channel to engage that effect, there is also a CC channel to bypass the effect as well.

So if I wanted to engage the DIVEBOMB function, i program the GCP to tell the Whammy CC Channel 7, Expression Control is Channel 11. Now I have the ability to control my whammy in divebomb mode with my expression pedal. Now when I switch presets, I setup my whammy so it is in bypass mode. Just in case I accidentally activate loop 1 on the GCX the whammy its still off. I'd hate to be jumping around like a monkey on stage and go from some killer chug riff to video game noise cause i bumped my GCP. So I'll set that preset to tell the whammy CC channel 18 (the first bypass channel) and then turn off my expression pedals.

I hope that helps, the manuals can be really confusing at times, but after I read the manual on my whammy for the 600th time I got it figured out.

Good Luck.

Check that your Eventides Midi channells are not set to OMNI.

Thanks for the tips. I'll check and see "OMNI" is off on both the Eventides.
