Help Routing My New Rig!

Post by Christoffer.N » Wed Aug 16, 2017 1:27 am

Hello John! I need some help regarding my new rig!


Stuff I'm going to use:

Diesel VH4 (midi compatible)
JC-120
Mesa Triaxis
Mesa 2:90
G Major 2
2 Pedals
GCX
GCP
Mesa 4x12 one for now. ( 2 mesa 4x12 )


I'm wondering about two type of routing

First: i wanna use triaxis vh4 2 pedals and 2:90? ( My Heavy sound )

Second: Triaxis, 2:90, g major 2 , JC-120 ( Clean Sound )

how to wiring and routing everything i'm a bit lost.

Thx for taking your time!

First you will absolutely need two cabs (or one stereo cab) to run one side of the 2:90 and the VH4. The GCX will not switch speaker outputs on these amps.


So the Triaxis is always live, but you basically A/B between the VH4 and the JC120 for heavy or clean tones?
The G-Major 2 is only used with the clean tones, and the two pedals are only used with the heavy tones? What are the two pedals?

Hello John! First of all i'm sorry for lack of content!

I was putting all together and finished all the midi programming in the middle of the night and I guess I just stressed out.

I understand that i need two cabs

Yes the triaxis is always live. Thats the routing I need help with/ advise
Yes the G major2 is only used with clean tone.

Well one of em is always on and the other is part time on.

I'm Using a BOSS NS-2 and a KLON replica


basically i want Triaxis (mark IV) comprised with the VH4 and KLON for heavy! (2:90)
(rhythm sound no KLON)

and

Clean tone: Triaxis (mark I), G major2 and JC-120 and off course 2:90

My old setup was: GCX gtr in->GCX-out->GCX-in->NS 2->GCX->EQ-pedal->GCX-out-> Dual Rectifier in->loop send->g major 2->G major 2-out L-Mesa Return, G major2 Out R-> JC-120 Return R. GCX 6,7,8 for controlling channel switching(ch2,ch3 and loop on/off) on my Recto!

Best Regards

Chris

Here is a diagram to try out...

This has loops 1 and 2 switching your pedals. Loop 5 is an A/B for the JC-120/VH4. Loop 6 is switching the G-Major 2. (The JC-120 FX Loop should be set to Parallel for this setup.)

Let us know how it goes!
