hook the bb preamp to one of the loops in the gcx. im assuming you know how to hook your guitar and your amp to the gcx already. if not, here's a diagram. http://www.voodoolab.com/gcxdiagrams/01 ... _AmpSw.pdf

then i guess you can use an instant access on your gcp to control your bb preamp. you can check your gcp manual for this. you'll have to program one of the instant access buttons to turn on the loop that you put the bb in

If you want the effect to be part of a preset then check out the Controlling the GCX Guitar Audio Switcher section of the Ground Control Pro manual under Edit Preset.
If you want an Instant Access button to control the effect check out the Instant Access section of the Ground Control Pro manual under Setup Mode.

Let us know if that doesn't help.

I'm not really sure where you have gone wrong here so step by step instructions would look just like the manual at this point. When you say nothing happens what do you really mean?
1. When you power up the system does the Active LED on the GCX flash at first then remain on?
2. When you press any of the upper two row buttons (buttons 1-8) do the GCX loop LEDs light up?
3. When you press any of the upper two row buttons (buttons 1-8) does the Ground Control Pro screen change or just the LEDs above these buttons?
4. Do you get any guitar sound through the system at all?

The answers to these questions should help us figure out where you have veered off track.

If you press the small numbered button (upper two rows numbered 1-8) corresponding to the GCX loop that the BB Pre is connected to, do you hear the effect? What GCX loop is the BB Pre connected to?

I will provide a step by step once I know where it is that you need help and what is or isn't working yet.
