I think I've got to the bottom of my issue. I think it might be the cable between the pedal and the g-force.

I have a mulitcore snake of cables that connects the pedal board to the rack, it has 5 cables.
  • Power
    Midi
    Wah-send
    Wah-return
    Tap tempo
I've checked the cable with a multimeter and there's continuity between tip and shield between the Jack's at each end which is correct, however when I plug in the tap pedal and the other end into the g-force it doesn't work.

However, as a test I tried one of the other cables in the snake... the wah send and it worked a treat. I did the same with the wah return and again it worked fine. So now I've whittled the issue down to the cable. I've checked both ends for solder bridges etc and can't see anything untoward... there is continuity between both jacks, so I'm now at a loss. I think I'll just desolder both jacks and solder in 2 new ones hopefully it's just a bit of dodgy soldering... I'll report back my findings

Must have been a short in the soldering.... resoldered and now all is fine
