Hello,

Was curious if anyone has any experience using PX8 Plus with the older Pedal Switchers. I assumed the newer devices would be somewhat backwards-compatible, but I'm having a hard time answering the question definitively. The documentation on the Pedal Switcher doesn't say much about its midi capabilities. I would assume under the old model the old switchers would store the loop combinations and the controlling device (Commander or Ground Control Pro) would send the CC changes. Does this mean that the Pedal Switchers are only capable of storing 10 combinations (since the commander only had 10 presets)? Does anyone know what the channel number is for the old switchers?

Thanks,

Jesse

Sorry for the delayed reply!

The PX-8 Plus will not control the older four loop Pedal Switchers. But one PX-8 Plus can control a second PX-8 Plus.

The original four loop Pedal Switchers can be controlled from the Commander or the Ground Control Pro. The Commander used a somewhat proprietary command set to control the switchers, and the Ground Control Pro sets the switchers to respond to the same Control Change messages as a GCX.

I hope that helps!
