Voodoo Lab Control Switcher & Mesa Boogie Mark V 35

Post by ak4ray » Sat Jun 17, 2017 1:07 am

Hi all

I own a Mesa Boogie Mark V 35 and want to use the control switcher to replace the 4 button foot-switch, and switch via midi, control switcher and my Line 6 Helix.
Does anyone know if the 5-pin din connector on the control switcher is compatible with the factory mesa boogie foot-switch cable or would I have to purchase a different one?
The factory cable for the Mark V 35 is 5-pin.

Thanks

Ray

Sorry for the delay!

The Control Switcher can control the Mark V:35 but you will need a custom made cable to use the DIN jacks. Feel free to give us a call or write to info@voodoolab.com for current pricing and availability.

I hope that helps!

Does this mean with the custom cable and the control switcher, the channel changing/other options on the Mesa Mark V: 35 can be controlled by a midi foot controller?

Yep!

The Control Switcher, and the custom cable, will take the place of the footswitch to allow MIDI control of the Channel 1/2, EQ, Solo Ch 1 & Solo Ch 2 functions.

I hope that helps!
