Re: Marshall JCM2000 dsl channel switching using gcx

Yes you can! You would only need a standard 1/4' instrument cable or speaker cable connected between the Out/N.O. jack on and unused GCX Loop and the Channel Footswitch jack on your DSL2000. If you also want to control Reverb you will need a second cable and a second unused GCX Loop with the Out/N.O...

Re: GCX stops responding correctly to MIDI input

What is the pedalboard power supply you are using? Does it have a 9V AC or high current 12V DC Output? Based on the described behavior I'd bet you are probably powering from 9VDC. The GCX ideally should be powered from a 9V AC power supply, particularly if you will be using it to provide Phantom Pow...

Re: Weird behavior change GCP from 10 preset mode to 4 preset mode?!?

What you are seeing is actually normal, counter intuitive as that seems per the top panel layout. ;) The presets start with preset “0” in 10 Presets per Bank. When switching Bank modes preset 00 in 10 Presets per Bank mode becomes preset 01 in 4 Presets per Bank mode as it is the first preset locati...

Re: GCP midi values

A possible solution you could have right away is adding something like the MIDI Solutions Event Processor to Map the Data 0 or 127 to be whatever value you like.

Re: GCP Sending CC messages and Values

Yep, that's the answer... Instant Access buttons send Data 0 or Data 127, nothing in-between. A possible solution is to use something like the MIDI Solutions Event Processor to create a MIDI Map of an event to re-define it to suit your needs. For instance, you could program the Map so when it sees C...

Re: RC network across relay GCX

That should be a 150 ohm, and a 2.2uF... do you have a GCX you are repairing?

The purpose of the circuit is to sort of soften the relay switching to keep the popping to a minimum.

Re: Cleaning the GCP

Not sure where you have the adhesive bits but probably helpful if you need to use something different is knowing the main chassis parts are painted with a polyester based powder coat and the overlay is made of lexan. That said, goo gone has always seemed to work well so maybe look at what you used f...

Re: Ground Control Pro -> PX-8+ No CC# MSGs

Glad it seems to be working now... well mostly working at least. ;) Looking at the DD-500 manual I don't see the default CC for Effect On/Off listed. Under MIDI in the Parameter List section it does look like this is programmable within the DD-500. What do you have the MIDI Receive Channel set as an...

Re: Cables question for splawn amd amd switcher

An Insert Cable shouldn't be too hard to find from a dealer you like. This is a somewhat normal cable used with mixing boards. This cable is also sometimes called a Stereo Breakout Cable.

This cable looks like a Y-Cable but it has a single TRS end that splits out to two TS ends.

I hope that helps!
