GCX and g-major2+pedals

Post by modulo » Fri Jul 15, 2016 10:01 am


i would like to know how to program my new GCX to my rig. I have the GCP with 4 presets and running pedal mode in the other 8 switches. I bought and now would like to use real pedals as 1-2-3-4 as real pedal and use the other 4 as ''pedals'' on my g-major2 with CC command?

1- chorus (real)
2- flanger (real)
3- phaser (real)
4- overdrive )real)
5- Boost on G-major2 using cc
6- Delay on G-major2 using cc
7- pitch shifter on G-major2 using cc
8- reverb on G-major2 using cc

Real= real pedal

First: Do I have to reprogram my GCP?? since it's all ready program ??

If you want Instant Access buttons 5-8 to control G-Major Effects Blocks, then yes, you will have to re-program those buttons.

Look to MIDI Continuous Controller On/Off in the Instant Access section under Setup Mode of the Ground Control Pro user manual. This will show you how to program each button for the proper MIDI Channel and set the Control Change number that matches the Effect Block you want to control.
The G-Major2 display will show the Control Change number associated with each Effect Block in the MOD Menu, or it can Learn the Control Change you set on each of the Ground Control Pro Instant Access buttons.

Let us know if you get stuck!
