    Re: Triaxis/GMajor/Ground Control

    I don't think the old one is that much different to program than the Pro. The Pro has less shared buttons which may make it a bit easier. However, I've read the manuals for both and they seem really similar.

    My bad, I assumed you had the Ground Control Pro. I haven't tried programming an original Ground Control, but the Pro is one of the easiest foot controllers I've seen. The last time I programmed one was helping a friend set up his effects rack with an original G-Major back in 2007 or 2008. I remember being really shocked at how good the delays & reverb were in the G-Major for the price of the unit, even if I wasn't impressed with its chorus or phase. I'm seriously looking at a G-Major II with the updated G-System effects - I keep telling myself that I don't need an effects rack, but I seriously HATE tap-dancing.

    I just want to gloat. The instant I saw the OP I thought "something's on the wrong channel." Pretty sure it's not user error though - I'm convinced there are little MIDI gremlins that twiddle important settings in the early morn before an important gig.

    No problem. Every few weeks I debate whether I should build an effects rack (G-Major / GCX) to go along with my current rig or just stick with the pedal board. Glad it's working out for you.

    Thanks man, I appreciate the help. I tracked it down to a midi-channel problem and basically user error on my part!

    Hi Jeff,
    Are both devices showing in the Device Name / Channel menu of the Ground Control? If not, enter whichever device is missing. Then edit a preset and be sure to select a program change for each device. After saving the preset, your GC should be controlling both devices.

    Hi Dystrust. Yes, the Triaxis is programmed on channel 1 and the GMajor on channel 2. Thanks.

    Re: Triaxis/GMajor/Ground Control

    First of all, do you know which channels your Triaxis and G-Major are operating on? It's been a while since I've programmed a Ground Control, but I believe it has a device memory where you can specify which channels down stream devices are connected to (details on page 6 of manual here). When creating a patch you'll need to specify a program change for both devices in order guarantee that both devices will be on the intended program when changing.

    After that's working you can set up instant access switches within a given Ground Control patch to change or bypass G-Major effects blocks. I'm not as familiar with the Triaxis, so I don't know what midi continuous controllers it'll respond to.

    started a topic Triaxis/GMajor/Ground Control

    Triaxis/GMajor/Ground Control

    I'm having a lot of problems setting up my rig. I know some of you have used this set up, so I wonder if anyone can please help me here.

    First, the GC was controlling the Tri and GMajor on the same channel. I wanted the GMajor to stay on one channel and only switch the Tri. I couldn't get this to work.


    Then I did something where the GC is only controlling the GMajor and won't send anything to the Tri.


    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
