Re: Expansion pack needed?

There was a Memory Upgrade required for the Original Ground Control, but a Ground Control Pro will control all of these units right out of the box with no problem. Good Luck! Thank you! I keep telling myself I'm too young for senior moments and I was certain I saw that in documentation somewhere. I...

Re: Power requirements for GCX/GCP?

Thanks John. That may come in handy (although I hoping things actually start working soon. The amount of time and aggravation has far eclipsed any savings from buying this gear used. I has been educational. THanks for the reminders on the MIDI cables. They are labeled "active", but I'll meter them t...

Re: Power requirements for GCX/GCP?

The unnamed National retailer is going to get the power supply for me. Unfortunately, they can't have VDL drop ship it tow me..it has to go to them and then to me, so I expect I'll be waiting until next week for this. They will remain unnamed, because, even though they colossally fouled up my order,...

Re: Expansion pack needed?

Excellent. I'm home for a short stretch, so I'll poke through the hardcopy, just to see if I ca find that reference. (Maybe I've scrambled a couple of things together in my head, who knows?). Thanks for the help and good to know about the signal. I heard back from Voodoo Lab later yesterday, so hope...

Re: GCX switchers

Better yet: Control switcher and plug directly in with the 5-pin.

Re: Expansion pack needed?

Now I can't find the reference in the on-line docs, but I'm certain I saw reference to a "memory expansion pack" in the printed documentation for the Control switcher, which is at home. (Maybe in my advanced age I'm the one needing the memory expansion :-{) I guess some of this will be aparent once ...

Re: Power requirements for GCX/GCP?

Good point. Let me clarify: neither unit powers up. I believe the supply that came with them is a 1A 9V DC with the 4 pin DIN. There's no voltage across any of the pins and I don't know what the pinout is. I have no problem splicing the plug onto another supply, but the unnamed National retailer who...

Power requirements for GCX/GCP?

I bought a GCX and Ground Control Pro used from a National retailer. Unfortunately, they don't power up. I couldn't find a pinout or power supply specs on the Voodoo lab site. There is no voltage across any of the pins, so I'm assuming the power supply is dead. What do I need to power this setup? Th...

Expansion pack needed?

I'm planning on using a Ground control Pro to control a GCX, a control switcher and an MX200. Will I need the expansion pack
To run the GCX and the Control Switcher?

Thanks in advance
