Hi,

i am just wondering if you can control the Audio Switcher with any other MIDI Controlboards or do you have to use the GCP ?

Thanks for advice :)

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, this is possible.

From pg 14 of the GCX manual:

It is possible to control the GCX from other devices like MIDI sequencers, some MIDI footpedals, or any device capable of transmitting MIDI Control Change messages.
The GCX responds to MIDI Control Change messages sent on channel 16 only. A data value of 0 turns the loop off, a data value of 127 turns the loop on. Controller numbers are as follows:

Audio Loop or Latched Switch
Loop #1 = controller #80
Loop #2 = controller #81
Loop #3 = controller #82
Loop #4 = controller #83
Loop #5 = controller #84
Loop #6 = controller #85
Loop #7 = controller #86
Loop #8 = controller #87

Momentary Switch
Loop #1 = controller #104
Loop #2 = controller #105
Loop #3 = controller #106
Loop #4 = controller #107
Loop #5 = controller #108
Loop #6 = controller #109
Loop #7 = controller #110
Loop #8 = controller #111

There was a rev or two, but I'm not sure if the very early units were different as far as MIDI control.

Ask the seller if the unit has been modded.

Nope. IMO either the seller doesn't understand the GCX, it's been modded, or it's broke.
