GCX DAW automation.. Can it be done?

Post by methuselahhope » Sun Aug 06, 2017 4:34 pm

I'm currently in the process of preparing my live rig, and I had a question regarding The GCX. We play to backing tracks, so I was had the idea of having automated patch changes within the daw. Is it possible to do this with the GCX?

Shouldn't be much of a problem to get this going. The GCX responds to MIDI Control Changes 80 - 87 on MIDI Channel 16. A data value of 127 turns a loop ON, and a data value of 0 turns a loop OFF.

Otherwise, you can send Program Changes to a Ground Control Pro to remotely recall its presets.

I hop that helps!
