Sweet Baby Jesus, HELP ME!

Post by drewmolleur » Sun Oct 25, 2009 10:01 pm

I need help figuring out how to control my rig with the ground control and GCX unit.

my rig is as follows:

Mesa Dual Rectifier - 2 channel
Hughes Kettner Triamp MKII - w/ midi module
Fender 65 Twin Reverb
Line6 M13 (will live on a drawer in my rack)

I want to be able to have control over effect switching on the M13, channels switching on rectifier and triamp... and thats it! I have never used and midi board system so my head is about to explode.

the triamp midi module has a midi out... that wont go into the GCX, right? will i need additional gear? so perplexed, here...

Thanks in advance!!

The MIDI Out of the Ground Control will connect to the Pedal In on the GCX. The MIDI Out of the GCX will go to the M13 and then from the M13 to the Tri-amp. Name your 2 devices and assign the MIDI channels as described in the Device Name/Channel section of the Ground Control Pro manual under Setup mode. After all that you are ready to start creating Ground Control Pro presets. Let us know if you have any specific questions about getting started.
