Controlling Two GCX Switches with Roland FC300

Post by Radiohead » Tue Nov 24, 2009 8:19 pm

I picked up a second GCX Switching unit today. I am using a Roland FC300 to control my Rig. The GCX is receiving on channel 16. Can I set the second GCX to receive on a different channel?

In order to control multiple GCX Switchers with a non DMC/Voodoo Lab controller the second, third, and forth GCX units will require a custom chip to force them to respond to a different set of Control Change numbers. In your case you would want to get a GCX #2 chip for your second GCX. Give us a call or send an email to info@voodoolab.com to order the necessary chip.
