  • MIdi help please.

    Alright i have a 5150 and a Boss GX-700 rackmount fx unit crerating a good sound for me. Is there a way I can use a Midi controller to channel switch my 5150 for me so i don't have to use that crappy foot switch that came with my 5150 head. I like the Roland FC-200 but can it be hooked up to do this for me. Thanks

    If the Roland foot switch has an amp channel selection jack (some floor pedals do), or the 5150 has a MIDI Input, yes.
    If not, no.
    I want to depart this world the same way I arrived; screaming and covered in someone else's blood

    The most human thing we can do is comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.

      5150 doesn't do midi, so your only options are

      1) a Behringer FCB1010 midi controller with 2 switching jacks on it
      2) a processor, like a G-Major or one of the Rocktron units with a channel switching jack built into it
      3) an Axess Electronics ( CFX4 Function Switcher that is a midi controlled switcher, or something else along those lines like a DMC GCX.

      The short answer is there is no easy way (unless your processer has a controller jack, which it may, but I'm not familiar with it).
