GCP and Intellifex online

I know the Intellifex is an older piece of kit, but it’s been useful to me since it was new. Anyway, I have the GCP controlling a Mesa TC-50 (which is midi controllable) and the aforementioned Intellifex. I have the GCP in 4/8 mode and have had no trouble making presets to control them both...however, I was hoping to use the IA buttons to toggle on and off an effect or two on the Intellifex (at least until I get a hex or GCX). Does anyone know if this is possible? I know I can control things like delay level ratios with CC commands (I had a another midi controller with expression pedals, and had one controlling delay amount, so I could swim in it during the solo of Magic Carpet Ride) but I haven’t found how to turn an effect on/off with CCs.
Any help would be appreciated.

I've never had one of these in front of me so I am unsure if there is an easy individual effect bypass method.

I think the first place to look would be to the Intellifex Online user manual at the Controller Assignment section under MIDI Operation. This looks to be where you would assign the Control Change number to a "Parameter"... what the manual doesn't seem to show (at least not that I couldn't find quickly enough ;) ) is exactly which parameters are available here. If I had the Intellifex Online in front of me, I'd pop into this menu and scroll thru the parameters to see if anything looked like a useful way to bypass an effect type.

Let us know what you find!

I don’t have a lot of time in, programming CC commands...I set that expression pedal up years ago, I do have the original manual, although I’m not finding it overly helpful in this situation. Just in case...does anyone know of a rack multi effect that IS easy to do what I described?

It would be nice if Rocktron included control numbers for its parameters in the manual. :x
