GCP, TriAxis, G-Major2, Rane mixer (Wiring and Program)

Post by llpcode » Tue Sep 03, 2019 11:47 am

I have been trying to determine how to connect the following gear (Forever!!!)
• Voodoo Labs Ground Control Pro (I assume the MIDI OUT into the Mesa Boogie MIDI IN)
• Guitar input into the Mesa Boogie TriAxis (With MIDI OUT into the TC electronic G-Major 2’s MIDI THRU)
• Mesa Boogie feeding the TC electronic G-Major 2 (I do not know if FX loop or OUTPUT or RECORD is better), I have read that running parallel is better.
• TC electronic G-Major 2 – into the Rane SM26S mixer
• Rane SM 26S mixer Feeding the Mesa Boogie 2:90 and in stereo
• Mesa Boogie 2:90 power amp (Feeding 2 Mesa Boogie Thiele Cabinets)
Since I have that Rane SM26S mixer I would like to run with Kill Switch On and with a parallel setup (???).
Can anyone help and advise me how to run the cable connections? PLEASE!

NEXT is programming the GCP, TriAxis, and G-Major2 to enable channel selection on a specific TriAxis, with a specific channel on the G-Major2.

I am loosing my mind!

Sounds quite do-able...

1. Ground Controp Pro MIDI Out to Triaxis MIDI In.
2. Triaxis MIDI Thru to G-Major 2 MIDI In.

You will want to name both the Triaxis and the G-Major as MIDI Devices within the Ground Control Pro and assign each one to its own MIDI Channel (for example: MIDI Channel 1 for the Triaxis, MIDI Channel 2 for the G-Major.) and program the Triaxis and the G-Major to respond only to the assigned Channel.
Look to the Device Name/Channel section of the Ground Control Pro manual under Setup Mode.

1. Guitar to Triaxis Instrument Input.
2. Triaxis Output A to a Mixer Mono Input 1.
3. Triaxis Output B to G-Major Mono Input.
4. G-Major Left and Right Outputs to Mixer Master Left and Right Inputs.
5. Mixer Output Left and Right to 2:90 Inputs A and B.

I've never personally used this mixer but I'm reasonably sure the above connections will work ;)
The Master Input knob will adjust the Effects Level, and the Channel 1 Knobs will adjust the Preamp Level (you'll likely set the Pan at 12:00 and never use it again).
You will want the G-Major to be set 100% Wet with the Kill Dry set to ON.

Let us know how it goes and we can start creating presets!
