Px-8 and channel switching

Post by Gblankley » Tue Feb 13, 2018 5:23 pm

I own an evh which is midi compatible
I should be able to use just the PX-8 for channel switching and pedals presets ?

Yes, the PX-8 Plus presets will send MIDI Program Change messages that the 50 Watt 5150 III will respond to. This should all just work out of the box by connecting the MIDI Cable and following the MIDI Programming steps in the manual for the amp.

Oh, you already have these things sitting in front of you?

MIDI Connections:
1. PX-8 Plus MIDI Out to 5150 III MIDI In.

For programming your amp, I suppose I'd first take a look at this from the EVH Gear site...
