Hey everyone. Just a question for a dummy before I buy.

Can I use the Commander midi pedal in conjunction with my Marshall JMP-1 and Marshall JFX-1?

I plan to use a Wah pedal and floor tuner also. Are the rack units compatible?

Consists of Power Amp Marshall EL34 100x100, JMP-1 & JFX-1. I want to be able to change between clean, rhythm and lead, but also have a channel with separate effects on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers!

The Commander will send MIDI Program Changes on MIDI Channel 1. Preset 1-10 will send Program Change 1-10 respectively.

Your JMP-1 and JFX-1 will accept these messages to recall their first 10 preset locations.

If you are not also using one of our Pedal Switcher units, or something similar, you will need a custom way to power the Commander as it only accepts power via Phantom Power on its MIDI Out jack.

I hope that helps!

Cheers John!!


Do you have any idea what I could use to phantom power it?
I've also been informed that the Commander is discontinued now, so do you know if the XP8 does the same/needs the same?

Cheers :D

The Commander accepts power on Pins 1 and 3 on its MIDI Out jack. I don't know of an off the shelf box that just does this, but it is a rather simple custom box if you want someone to build one. Power can be 9V AC or DC and it draws about 50mA.

The PX-8 and PX-8 Plus can also send MIDI Program Changes with their presets. However, the PX-8 has only three presets, and the PX-8 Plus has 36 presets. Both units also have eight true bypass loops for switching pedals. Both units also have standard barrel jacks for power and accept 9VDC @ a minimum of about 100mA.

I hope that helps!
