Re: A/B/Y With GCX

Your input was very valuable, nyteowl. This is a drastic reorganization of my rig, but I am glad to take this step. I never anticipated adding all of my fx and the looper option when I first bought my GCX a few years ago. I'm simply at a crossroads on moving to another level. BTW...may I ask what mi...

Re: A/B/Y With GCX

Will this new gear replace one of the amps you are currently using, or is the new plan to convert your dual mono rig to stereo? Yes. I am going the preamp + poweramp route now. I just used the other two amps originally to test things out (because I bought a cheap combo for my 2nd amp and tried to i...

Re: A/B/Y With GCX

Yes, you are currently running a dual mono rig. If you ever do want to convert to a stereo rig the main point to consider is this: even though the effects in your GCX Loops may be stereo effects, unless you're using a stereo GCX you can only run those effects in Mono Mode, but the stereo effects af...

Re: A/B/Y With GCX

When I started the thread, I tried to keep things simple. I should have gone into more detail. As mentioned, I am running two amps. Amp#1 has TWO loops in it. The first loop is a serial loop. The second loop is a mixable parallel loop. Amp#2 has one serial loop on it. BTW...both fx units in the loop...

Re: A/B/Y With GCX

Here is my sketch... How can I change things to do what I wanted as mentioned in my previous posting? I want to... 1.) Feed my preamp from Amp 1 and effects to both amps at the same time 2.) Split my signal to both amps so that I can A/B/Y between them 3.) Record my entire signal chain into a looper...

Re: A/B/Y With GCX

Well, it doesn't work as intended. I forgot that I am muting the fx send signal on Amp 1 only. Thus, when I shut off the ABC on Channel A, it is only stopping the feed that comes out of my amp's fx loop. My amp is still able to output sound because there is nothing stopping the input on the Amp. Hmm...

Re: A/B/Y With GCX

So...I have sketched out a lot of scenarios on my paper, but can't seem to figure this out entirely. My last sketch had the following signal flow... Out of GCX 7 -> ABCadabra Input -> A Output -> Amp 1 fx loop return -> B output -> GCX 8 input -> GCX 8 Send -> Input Looper -> Output Looper -> GCX 8 ...

Re: A/B/Y With GCX

Okay. Then how would I set it up? I already bought the ABCcadabra and have to test it to see if it works. Here is what I want to do.. I have my first amp with all my effects as mentioned. I want to send that preamplifier signal and effects to return back to my amp through its loop returrn. I also wa...

Re: A/B/Y With GCX

I know there is a way to use my GCX to A/B between two amps. However, what if I want to be able to run them both at the same time (Y) and also A/B between them? Can I do this with my GCX or do I need to buy something else to add to the GCX to accomplish this? See Page 9 of your GCX manual. Thanks. ...
