Suggestion for firmware update

Post by Darkness, Darkness » Sun Aug 25, 2013 3:28 am

I bought in July 2 GCX and a ground control pro. Very happy with this system :)

I currently use it in the 4 presets / bank mode to enable IA feature. However 8 instant access switches is too much for my needs and only 4 preset switches is not always enough. Not sure if I am the only one in this case ? Because I am using midi rack units in my system, I have to use preset to reconfigure my sound. In fact I really need 2 IA : one for a boost for solo, and a second one for mute function.

So it would be great in a firmware update to add a 8 presets / bank mode (switches 1-8) and 4 instant access switches (bottom row of the GCP)

Having the 10 presets/bank + 4 presets/bank with 8 IA + 8 presets/bank with 4 IA + The Oz Noy 12 IA (discussed in another thread) would bring total versatility too the system.

If you like the idea do not forget to give feedback in this thread so that the Voodoo Lab team could know and decide whether it is worth working on this featu or not.

Ooops , it looks like nobody like my suggestion. If you think I am wrong in my way of using the GCP (or expecting to use it), please tell me. Always happy to learn, especially if it could help me to better use my (quite newly acquired) gear ! ;)

User configuration of the number of preset buttons vs. the number of IA buttons is a feature available on MIDI Foot Controllers from other manufacturers, and I think it would be great if Voodoo Lab were to take a page out of their playbook.

I think it's a completely valid Feature Request.
