Hello there

i just purchase a ground control pro and recently purchase a tc electronic g force.
Looking to set up an expression poedal for volume and one for a wah.
there was mention that the ernie ball 6180 VP jr would do the job...

Anyone has set up a wah with the g Force?

i would like to set up a wah with the expression pedal but i cant find nowhere topics from g force users on how to set up a wah in the g force...
i was wondering if you could give me an advise on how to set up the gforce to make it work...

righ now i was using the phaser with my second exp pedal on the fcb 1010 to play on the volume ...it's not wonderfull!
Thanks for your support and help

I use one of the normal Ernie Ball pedals as a volume and it works a treat.

See page 19 of the Ground control pro manual for information on setting up your GCP for use with an expression pedal. You basically need to enable it in the GCP menu, and tell it what control number it's changing... For example CTL007

Page 14 and 23 of the G-Force user manual details to procedures for setting up the G-Force for an expression pedal.

Your Expression pedal can be connected in two ways, either directly to the “External control” jack on the back panel of the G-Force, or via one of the pedal in's on the back of the GC Pro.

The G-Force can be controlled by various types of pedals. The type of pedal that you are using is set up in the Utility display, by the “Pedal type” parameter. When you are using Expression pedals, you should select “Alternating”.

When you connect your expression pedal to the “External control” jack or the GP pro, you should make sure that the G-Force is
calibrated for that particular pedal. That is done in the Utility display:

- Press Utility.
- Scroll down to “Pedal calibration”, using the Parameter wheel.
- Press Enter and follow the instructions in the display.

You have now calibrated your expression pedal, and are ready to setup the function of it.

All of that blurb was lifted straight from the G-Force manual... But please read it yourself to learn the more in depth intricacies of setting it up. The G-Force has a good "Learn" function that'll amke light work of all this.

In fact the part service up in the sense of plug in and make it work
Is not an issue for me.... maybe i wasn't clear enough when i wrote my topic...
My challenge is more to find a proper wah setting on the g force and
Then control the right parameter for o maie it sound....

Maybe i should only get a cry baby!!!

Ahhh... You should be able to set the wah parameter.. I believe it should be the frequency setting in the G-Force, and also I seem to remember the Mix setting as well.

The problem is bypassing the wah effect when you don't want to use it... Sorry I can't be more explicit, I've never set up my G-Force for Wah control as i've always used a "real" wah
