Adding a px8 plus to GCX and GCP

Post by JoshuaRduncan » Thu Aug 23, 2018 6:19 pm

I currently run a gcx and ground control pro and have a few questions.

I control an eleven rack with the gcp as well and want to have dist, delay, mod, and rev setup as instant access bypass buttons. Can I do this on the px8? It seems like the manual says the instant access can only control the loops in the px8?

If this isn’t possible is there a midi controller, even something small with 4 footswitches that has the ability to send cc messages to the eleven rack? I just want 4 more channels of instant access.

The PX-8, and PX-8 Plus Instant Access buttons will only control their audio loops, they cannot be made to send Control Changes to other MIDI gear.
The Ground Control Pro has eight Instant access buttons when use in the 4 Presets per Bank Mode... are you using all of those already?

Thanks for your reply John. Yes I am using them for the loops in the gcx already.
