Switching channels on the Viper using a TC Electronic G-System


Like the title says, I cannot get the G-system to switch channels on my Viper by conventional methods. I think the G is sending a different level/voltage than the Viper  needs :dunno: Does it even send a voltage?

Can I hook up my multi tester to see what voltage each one is throwing? Is that possible?

Can I add a little resistor between the two to compensate for a difference?

I need to start pawing through the schematics for the Viper...but I can't read schematics.

From what I can read the G system has relays that can be switched in and out.The viper doesn't work that way, the original pedal gets a voltage from the viper and send a voltage back.So you can't hook it up to the G system unless you make a special design switcher.

So THAT's why it doesn't work. Thanks for the straight answer. I thought I could do it because I can do it with the Quad switch...so, my Quad switch is getting a little juice from the Viper and using that to switch. What about a Boss MS-3? Does that use relays, or do you think it would be able to switch channels in my Viper?

How do I find out if an amp does this or if it can be switched with the relays in the G? I'm looking at a lil' Peavey Classic 20w head.

I think the Boss works the same way as the G sys.
Yep the quad works in a similar way, but it's an ADA, they use this type of voltage switching in other stuff like the 2FX, the MXC and the TFX-4

As for other amps, depends on the circuit but for the peavy it might work. Tried to get the manual but the damn thing is unreadeble.

Haha! I'll look into it...I think the Peavey passed me by, I haven't heard from the guy. I haven't even tried that little Boss MS-3 yet...hoping the delays/reverbs sound good.
