Mvoodoo lab control switcher MIDI amp channel switcher and PX8 Plus

Post by Romertron » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:00 am

Hello,
I recently purchased a JVM215c. The amp have MIDI capabilities.
I was wondering if I can incorporate a voodoo lab control amp channel switcher and connect it to my PX-8 plus. Would I be able to switch amp channels with my PX8 Plus?
If that’s possible, how would I wire them?
Sorry, new to MIDI.

Sorry for the late reply!!

The PX-8 Plus will send MIDI Program Changes directly to your JVM amp. You would not need the Control Switcher for this setup. Out of the box, both the PX-8 Plus and the JVM 215c will use MIDI Channel 1 so there should be no need to do any other setup programming.

MIDI Connections:
1. Connect the MIDI Out of the PX-8 Plus to the MIDI In on your JVM 215c amp.

Programming:
1. Set the amp to how you would like it to sound. (The amp can store Channel, FX, Reverb,and Master Settings)
2. Press the amp's Footswitch/MIDI Program button twice. (The LED will flash to confirm the amp is ready)
3. Press the desired Preset button on the PX-8 Plus. (The Footswitch/MIDI Programming button LED should stop flashing)

Now whenever you recall this PX-8 Plus preset, the amp should recall the settings you just saved.

I hope that helps!
