OK...Duh...

Post by notagain » Thu Apr 02, 2009 7:27 pm

I have a TC Electronics G-Major Effects Unit and an ADA MP-1 Preamp, also a ADA MC-1 midi controller....

I have no clue how to hook them up?
Can the one controller handle the Preamp and the effects unit?

Thanks for any help in advance...

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Oh, and are all midi cables 5-pin? what's with the 9-pin ones?

Guess you can tell I have used pedals all my life!

So no one can help me, or simply doesn't want to?

Possibly all as confused as you are!

Does it not have a manual with it?

ADA floorboard midi out, to midi in ADA MP1, midi through to TC midi in.
Should work fine.
Just make shure you've got the right midi channel.
Or else the omni mode.

Actually, does the TC system have a footcontroller too? If so, it would replace the ADA footcontroller.

If not, one controller should be able to control all that and more. My Ground Control even channel switches my Orange for me... Can you do that with the ADA footcontroller?

Don't know much, but I know I'd love to help you figure the stuff out, it's just hard over the net.

What's the footpedal look like? What's the back of the rack unit look like?

Your are a "Orange Duke" and your asking me a lowly "Orange Master" how to setup your electronics? That's like the President asking John Stewart to fix the economy!!! I have yet to understand what "MIDI" is actually used for in the musical world. Actually we're just tickled to have electricity in Kansas!

Why do you want to use an old MP-1? Don't you own an Orange?
