So I'm running my GCP into an Eleven Rack and have it set that the bottom 1-4 switches call up different amp patches and the 1-8 instant access buttons are to turn on and off the individual effects.
On one patch (#4switch) I cannot get rid if the LED being on for instant access button #3 which is where I put the delay. No matter what I try it's always on...yet the delay is not on. I'll turn it off and save the setting with it off. As soon as I change patches and then go back to that #4 patch....the red LED is on again. And......I have to turn it off and then turn it back on to get the delay to come on. Only that patch.
Similarly except kinda in reverse.....my patch #2 is for a lead tone and I want the distortion pedal set to on. So I'll turn it on and save the patch with it on. However when I call up that patch.....the distortion 'pedal' is not on and neither is the LED.....I have to manually turn on the distortion which is on my #1 Instant access button. Yet....I have the EQ 'pedal' set to on when I call up the patch and it works just fine. Same with another patch I have the delay set to come on with the patch and it works fine.
Lastly (for now) sometimes when I pack everything up for a gig or rehearsal.....when I hook everything back up.......the Eleven is not seeing the GCP or vice versa. I'll connect the MIDI cable correctly but stepping on the 1-4 patch buttons does not have any effect on the 11R. I have never figured out what gets it back but it is usually after unplugging the MIDI cable at both ends and also unplugging power from the GCP and/or turning off and on the 11R. At some point it just starts working. I have the GCP and the 11R marked with a label maker as to MIDI OUT on the GCP and MIDI IN on the 11R so it's easy to see on a dimly lit stage etc......so I'm definitely not plugging the cable in wrongly.
Any thoughts? What process have I missed?
I have not named the amp patches in the GCP to match the 11R
Bank-wise I'm only currently using 4 patches and they come up on the GCP as 01, 02, 03 and 04 and the display always shows INIT after those numbers.
