Re: Communication problem between the control switcher and the commander

Welcome to the forum!

I think the only thing I see you would need to change is to remove the MIDI Cable leading back to the Commander. This will create a MIDI Loop that continually sends the messages around and around.

Let us know if that helps.

Re: GCP midi values

Is there any plans for an updated version of the GCP? I really love everything about mine but, it's not really the king of the hill for midi controllers anymore. If there's a chance it's going to be updated to compete, I'll wait it out but, it's hard to not look at tye morningstar stuff. Sorry to s...

Re: GCP calling entire PRESETS from POD HD PRO

The Ground Control Pro 10 Presets Per Bank Mode is likely well suited for this. Each preset Bank would have Ten Preset locations. A common use of this in a somewhat rigid set list is to dedicate each bank to a song. You would still need to press the Bank up or Down Button to get to the next "Song" b...

Re: DMC Ground Control + Ground Link preset issue

Sorry to say but this is a symptom of this very old hardware. Both the Original Ground Control and the Ground Link lack the ability to save the state of the buttons when they are re-programmed with MIDI Channel and Controller Number. The GCX Active LED will stay on when a Ground Control configured t...

Re: voodoo lab HEX PC midi messages

The HEX uses Program Changes to load Presets. A HEX Preset will recall the saved state of all six loops at once. You will need to know what MIDI Channel you are sending your Program Changes on from your ES-8, but I'll assume its MIDI Channel 1. There are some setup steps to get things going that req...

Re: PX8 Plus with VL control switcher

Just bought a Px-8 plus and I'd like to use it with my old control switcher v.1, the one with the black buttons. Does it works the same as the v.2 for saving my preset. I've read every manuals but I still ain't sure how to set it up properly. Thx The Black button Control Switcher will work with the...

Re: Tap Tempo Pedal Build for the GCP

I've managed to build a tap tempo switch using a SPST momentary switch and 2 resistors. At first I tried debouncing the switch, didn't go well for me :lol: It's basically a fixed expression pedal with no pot. Here's the clip: https://youtu.be/01PSXCqs13o Here's the wiring diagram: https://i.imgur.c...

Re: Using and Volume pedal with GCP and GCX

Do you use the GCX Guitar In Buffer ahead of your first pedal? If so, I'd test if there really is a discernible loss when inserting the Volume Pedal and longer cables between two loops before adding more buffers. How far away will the volume pedal be? Do you know what value pot is in your Volume Ped...

Re: Control switcher

Sorry for the delay on getting this post approved! :oops: The Control Switcher should be able to control just about anything that uses a simple 1/4" footswitch, not just guitar amplifiers. The MIDI Receive channel is programmable and it can respond to Program Changes and/or Control Changes. I hope t...

Re: GCX stops responding correctly to MIDI input

Lets see if we can get your GCX in for an inspection. Please write to info@voodoolab.com to get the RMA started and be sure to mention this thread.
