Yes it can be done, but it requires a custom made cable that breaks out the amps Footswitch jack to multiple 1/4" ends. This is something you would have to make yourself or have made for you.

Alternatively, we do offer a cable for using the MULTI jack on our Control Switcher to control the Footswitch functions of the 6505+. This lets you keep the GCX Loops free for doing audio switching functions.

I hope that helps!

John, looked on the voodoo website and I am not seeing the cable you're referring to.

The cable for using the Control Switcher to control your 6505+ can be ordered directly from us or from any Voodoo Lab dealer. Feel free to give us a call or write to info@voodoolab.com to order one directly from us.

The cable for using a GCX to control your 6505+ is not something we make and has to be custom made.

I hope that helps!

John, can you point me in the direction of someone who can make the cable I need? After speaking to Ben Resnick, voodoo is unable to make the cable for me.

These would be my go-to guys without knowing your general location...

BTPA if you are in the US.

Nice Rack Canada if you are in Canada.

Give either one a call and tell them what you are looking for. Between these two you'll meet the nicest guys in the business.
