Hi, my name is Iñaki from Spain
First of all, please, excuse my english

I have a a problem with the MesaBoogie V-Twin Pedal.
I´m trying to control the channel switching of this preamp and I can´t do it
I tryed to did it with the output of one of the loops with a standard guitar cable
I read in the manual I can do it with a tip to ground cable but I don´t know what kind of cable is
Can anybody help me?
Thanx,
Iñaki

A GCX Loop with a standard instrument cable or speaker cable connected to the Out / N.O. jack (with nothing else connected to any of the other jacks for this loop) should work to control the V-Twin via its External Select jack.

Make sure this cable is connected before powering up the V-Twin. The manual for the V-Twin also suggests that you do not press the Channel button on the V-Twin if you will be using the External Select switching option.

How are you controlling the GCX? If you are using a Ground Control Pro, be sure that the GCX Loop is set to "Normal".

Let us know how it goes!

Maybe I did something wrong, because this is the way I connected it (plug-plug guitar cable)
I use a ground control with the GCX and I think
GCX Loop is set to "Normal" but it's the only thing I'm not sure
If I can, I'll tried it tomorrow and I'll posted the results
Is possible the cable I need was a stereo plug cable? or with the simple guitar cable is enough?

Hi, I connected a guitar cable in the SEND/ N.C. jack and it works perfect
Maybe I had a bad cable or the switching logic had some problem. I don´t know
But now I can do it perfectly
Thanks for all

Interesting!

The only difference between these two jacks is that they are reversed from eachother... The Out/N.O. is Open when the Loop is Off, and the Send/N.C. is Closed when the Loop is Off. This should not make the difference between working or not working, just that the GCX LED would appear to be opposite of the function.

Well, I'm glad to hear its working now either way!
