Re: Ground Control Pro: sending CC with a preset?

Thanks John. I'll see if I can make that work. Another possibility I'm looking into is if I can create a "bypass" preset in the Big Sky and call that up when I want of bypass it. Thanks again.

Ground Control Pro: sending CC with a preset?

So, I'm trying to conserve loops on my GCX. Is it possible to send a CC message with a preset or only with an instant access button? (I'm trying to bypass a Strymon Big Sky rather than putting it in a loop.)

Re: sound sculpture Volcano

Thanks for the quick reply John. (And to Ben for getting me the power supply so quickly that a certain national retail chain that will remain nameless still hasn't gotten to me.) The pedal is active and set to the same channel (although I should double check as I'm taking their word that it is, in f...

sound sculpture Volcano

Has anyone used a Volcano volume control with a Ground Control Pro? I plan on using it to control the level just before the effects return to the amp.

Their instructions say to send a program chanel of 53 or 54 and cc of 0, but the led doesn't change color when I rock the pedal.

Help!

Re: 2 amps, phase on one channel

You could run just one amp for the clean sound. You could have one pre amp power both power amp sections. I can't think of another way short of changing the phase of one amp. If it was in both channels, you could reverse the leads at the speaker jack. I suppose you could build a relay box that would...

Re: 2 amps, phase on one channel

The Stiletto does have a phase splitter tube. could this be bad? I have checked a number of different things on the net but don't seem to see any phase issues with channels issues like I'm having. any other advice? thank you If one amp has a phase inverter and the other doesn't, they will be out of...

Re: 2 amps, phase on one channel

You might need to go to Mesa (or check with someone who knows these amps): Does one amp have a phase inverter section I. The clean while the other does not?

Re: GCX switchers

The omission of the DIN plug in the documentation was a minor over site by Mesa. Using it with a control switcher is certainly convenient, but it assumes you're not using the control switcher for anything besides the Express. It all depends on the time/money budget. Sometimes spending money saves yo...

Re: GCX switchers

Actually, the express 5:50 has a 5 pin DIN for the footswitch. That's why I suggested it. Yes. You'd be adding a control switcher, but also freeing up loops on the GCX for expansion. (Purely personal preference: I'd rather not use a loop just to ground a switch circuit.)
