Post by humpfrey » Fri May 08, 2009 8:01 am

hi i have an old ground control ( not ) pro 1.00 and i'd like to programm it.
(my english isn't the best) so my problem is . i purchased WAVES GTR 3
and want to change the parameters and channels ...... when i try to connect it , no chance either there are functions missing or i' just tu stupid :roll:
when i look at the manual there are features i cant't enter with my old control.
like bank, and direct is ok. but 4 bank is not possible! so my question is , is it possible to upgrade or flash the ground control ?
GROUND CONTROL BY DIGITAL MUSIC VERSION 1.00

Yours is the very first Ground Control produced. Since this was 17+ years ago, you will find it does not have all the features of the current version! It is possible to upgrade yours to v2 which would let you use 4 presets/bank and 6 instant access buttons. This version requires some hardware changes so that the expression pedal inputs work properly with new firmware. There are also some minor updates.

If you send the Ground Control to us, it is USD65 to update. Otherwise, the new firmware ROM USD20.

Thanks!

I think we have provided pretty good support, particularly considering we manufactured this product 17 years ago. I understand that you would like all of your questions answered within minutes. Unfortunately, we are a very small company and we do not have a team of support people to do this. You have already received multiple emails from my staff regarding this issue, always within one business day. Please either order the chip or get a different foot controller.

Don't post your order here, that's not the purpose of the forum. Please don't start new threads unless it is a new topic. I've already combined your posts from 3 different threads into this one. I've also deleted your private address from a prior post for your security.
