a lot cheaper than buying 2 rane's

luckily i am a set and forget kinda guy for reverb and stuff. prob a ground control or smething will be good enough for patch changes and etc.

Hey Chamai, and also very well made by the looks, it should be very transparent and a good solution  :thumb-up: . As I said, the pain (albeit short lived) will be getting the input/output vols and gain structure right on all the different gadgets (some you have knob(s), some you have to scroll and program). Once you dial it in though ..... :whoohoo!: Hey look forward to how it turns out  :thumb-up: :headbanger:

sorry for the late response.

i am doing a little bit of research and i came across the voodoolab ground control GCX

you think this will work? tri chorus will be in series

i was thinking. ADAMP1 send to GCX loop 1. mono out Tri Chorus In. Tri chorus stereo out to loop 2 & 3. loop out of 2 & 3 to PCM 81. loop out of 2 & 3 to channel 1 & 2 of mixer. GCX loop out 4 to PCM 41 and mono out to channel 3 of mixer. GCX loop 5 to PCM 41 and mono out to channel 4 of mixer. Mixer R/L out to power amp and to right and left cabs.

thanks a bunch, sorry for being a noob

Hey Chamai, good on ya  :facepalm: I didn't know what a Voodoo thingy did, but now I do.  Yeah you can do it that way, depends how complicated you want to make it. To me it's all much easier with a small mixer with a couple of Fx sends and you won't need so many patch leads (to get from loop to loop).

thank you, but a line mixer from cae is a lot cheaper.

now i just gotta get my hands on a decent delay or delays. my g major gets the job done for now.

moving onto a 16u rack ,

crack gear. it's addictive. i find myself checking my local craigslist for gear all the time.

gasing for a spx 90 for some reason.. 100 bucks.

Hey Chamai, wow a SPX90, that's a blast from the past.  I have one in my PA rack which I use mostly for snare reverb.  Good mono in stereo out unit  :thumb-up:

Yeah it is addictive  :facepalm: , well you do have a 16ru rack to fill LoL...

They were one of the best "affordable" reverbs in their day, and easy to use.  The memory battery probably needs a change.  You could use one for delays and the other for reverb  :thumb-up: although they do all the time based Fxs (but only one at a time).  I loved them back when I was mixing lots of bands and the one I have is still going strong IIRC they predate ADA.

i am thinking about buying 2 for delays. my i got my pcm81 dedicated for reverbs already. i just don't get along with the g major for some reason.
they got a pretty damn good sounding chorus too from what ive heard.

mosvalve just crapped out on channel 2. so i gotta get that fixed. really sucks.

The delays are good I remember  :thumb-up: , as we had them in PAs (couldn't afford one myself back then) I didn't use the chorus.  IIRC the flange was also very good  :dunno: , anyway will do the job well for I recon.
Bummer about the mosvalve  :facepalm: . Hope it's a simple fix.

no tap tempo. just read.
im gonna research a bit. tax season is coming up and im going to go broke for awhile. gonna wait for some deals to come. our canadian dollar is shit right now so buying fleabay is not the best idea.

i can live with my g major for now.

as forr my mosvalve. i hope its a simple fix too.  gonna bring it to a tech when i have time and some extra $$$$$.

stupid bedroom door on our brand new place decide to break. had to call a locksmith at night. that set me back a few bucks. what a shitty start of a year.

im really trying to get the best pieces for my setup and use it forever.

on a side note, my mesa cab sounds great with the MP1.  i have always been using my orange loaded with some g12-t75 from the 90's. great speaker for the jcm 800. but with the MP1, it's got this annoying broken sounding high frequency when i use a higher gain setting.  the mesa v30's sound damn smooth. it doesen't sound very old school though.

i bought that thing blindly without trying it out. it knew it would be at least half decent hahaha. honestly, i can use the delay and reverb in the same unit and it sounds great. but it doesen't look cool.

 :banana-dance:

my dream is too have a legit 80's guitar rig. need pretty lights flashing. hook some lights via midi so everytime i change a patch,  lights start flashing or activates a fog machine. i need 2 floor fans so when im soloing, my hair flies up. AND, only use 1 effect per MULTI FX processor.


question.

anyone know why the new marshall 1960 with g12t75 sounds really scooped compared to the old jcm 800 cabs? my older g12t75 don't have that scooped sound and these were from the early 90's. speaker break-in is one thing, but man, those new ones don't sound right to me. did celestion change the specs over the years?
