10 preset mode midi change to effects proc bypass preamp

Is it possible to send midi program changes to your effects processor while bypassing your preamp? I'd like to use my Pod as an effects processor in 10 preset mode, where a few of the GCP channels could mimic instant access. For example, if I've set channel 1-3 to change my JMP-1 presets, I'd like t...

Re: How to find and update to latest firmware for GCP

By the way, is there a certain function you want from an update? Is this a kind of feature request? If so, what about: 12 IA Mode with Bank up and Bank down switching Presets More than one CC per IA Expression Pedal Signal to more than one Destination at a time Display NOT showing Preset Number to ...

Re: Modded my SKB-PS45 for all Voodoo power

How did you take off the power supply? Any damage to the pedal board?

I was thinking about doing it, if for no other reason than the thing is heavy as hell when fully loaded with gear.

Re: GCX has hum and noise even on bypassed loops

Tom, Good day. I didn't realize that I failed to update my final victory over this DTR-2 Tuner issue. The final fix and solution is really funny and didn't require the $550+ in accessories (George L's solderless custom size cables, Hear-O's rack ear isolators, and other misc stuff) and hardware (Vo...

Re: GCX has hum and noise even on bypassed loops

Josh, It's gone! Holy s*** as soon as I took the Korg tuner out of the the "Feed Through" it was gone. I also tried to send [To: tuner] with the "Guitar Out" and the noise came back (tried different cables too). Now I need to know how to get a tuner in the loop. I thought that was the best way. I g...

Re: GCX Signal Path Help | Buzz Hum and Tone Suck

John - thanks for all the help. After going through everything and spending a lot of time tweaking various settings, everything sounds great (at moderate volume levels). I have practice tonight so I'll be cranking it up... I'll let you know how it all goes down at stage level.

thx

Re: GCX Signal Path Help | Buzz Hum and Tone Suck

Well, I rerouted things and the signal definitely sounds a lot cleaner (less hum/buzz). However, when I really crank the volume on the OD channel (and disengage the Hush and NS-2, still notice a noticable amount of hum/buzz. Is this just a natural byproduct of "being loud", or is there still some gr...

Re: GCX Signal Path Help | Buzz Hum and Tone Suck

Now lets try running the Out of GCX Loop 8 directly to the Input of the little Aligator. If this eliminates the buzz then you can either isolate the GCX from the rack rails or lift the internal ground connection for the Guitar In/Out and Feedthru. Having all your devices with a three prong, grounde...

Re: GCX Signal Path Help | Buzz Hum and Tone Suck

OK - so I re-routed the chain as follows: Wah --> amp input (as per your suggestion John). That did seem to "clean-up" the signal (not too much, but enough that I could tell). I also changed to following: 1) took the Hush out of the chain that runs in FRONT of the amp. Instead of using the NS-2 as m...
