Post by jacksonslave » Fri Jul 17, 2009 10:36 am

hello
someone can help me to connect this setup so that i can change the channel of the amplifier through midi? to avoid walking to change channels and turn the delay while i switch the amp chennel
i want to connect G-sharp to my GCX Guitar Audio Switcher and a midi pedalboard FCB 1010 to when i want to make some solos i only push one button and i turn on the delay and switch to lead on my amplifier

cheers

In order to use the GCX to control the Marshall's footswitchable functions you will need a custom cable. This cable will have the 6 pin DIN plug on one end that terminates out to multiple 1/4" ends. Here is a diagram someone would need in order to make this cable.

Hi - Very helpful information. We just need to know where to get this adapter/connector you have pictured.

We are also adding two more multi-channel amps to the rig (a second Marshall TSL60 and a Ceriatone Overtone HRM) Besides these two additional amps, we are thinking about using a Roland Jazz Chorus to run our guitar synth system.

MIDI devices
we are using Eventide Ultraharmonizer H3000 (XLR in and outs) and Roland SX-700 (1/4" in and outs) and TC Electronics G-Force or 2290.

What are we going to need to run all these amp channels and be able to switch in our MIDI devices in parallel?

Thank you!

A single loop of a GCX or single switch of the Control Switcher will control a single function on an amplifier. There are 8 functions alone between the two Marshal amps.

Hey Y'all,

Appreciate the info on this topic. I just recently got a GCX + GCP and was looking for a way to control my Marshall TSL from them. I actually took what was suggested here and did something a little different. Given the issues everyone typically has with the TSL's footswitch cable going out, I had already modded the TSL's footswitch to have a female DIN connector (instead of the cable going directly into it) and a male-to-male MIDI cable to go from the head to the modded footswitch.

So, following the suggestions on this post, I built a breakout box with a female DIN connector on one side and 4 TS jacks on the other. I followed the wiring diagram, and bingo - it all worked just fine. I've attached some pics.

Thanks,

- Nick
