    Hi,

    Is it possible to send a midi command to the pedal to turn it off?

    If so what midi number is it?

    Thanks

      TC-Mike hi all, it is not possible to bypass the unit via Midi. the only midi features that are supported are preset recall of the 3 user presets and Midi sync of delay times.

      Iantaylorphoto Thanks Mike, is this something that maybe enabled in the near future?



      And do they have to be set to #1 #2 #3?

      Alexrijeka Sorry but that's no good. We actually have some presets that don't need dly. What then?! It's practically useless in larger guitar rigs. You must solve this! A blank/bypass preset 4 please! As for now we have to store one blank preset to use it?!?! That leaves us with two...

    Since April my unit is locking and freezing randomly, I can't reproduce why nor make a workaround... Any suggestions?
    I would like to hear anything about your experience with TC service too, if they solved your issues, how much time they took, email communication... particularly with this self boot/self locking issue.

    Thank you all,

    JJ

      Fabione72 Hi there.



      Just in case it helps, I had many (and really strange) problems after I loaded some memory dumps shared by other users (zip file on TC Electronics site).



      I solved the issue by factory reset + reloading my settings via the PC application (MIDI).



      Have you tried with a factory reset as well?





      Talking about support, unfortunately seems to be quite slow...

    • lidserter
      lidserter Thank you Fabione for your reply. I have never loaded shared memory dumps, only once, I made a backup of my settings and after a factory restart reloaded them. After that reset a new parameter was found on GLOBAL, between View Angle and Input Range: Input Channel. It let you specify if you want to operate with left input or stereo input. Weird enough it disappeared itself and I can't take it back even recreating the factory reset. In the meantime the unit continued to fail.



      The thing is I've got expensive shipping for my unit ($150 US dollars), which is in warranty, because I reside in another country than where it was bought, so if shipped and issues don't get solved... you imagine. I'm trying to get some feedback from you users who had deal with TC service. I'm still waiting a reply for the email I send them.

      lidserter Finally I opened my unit and press hard the ribbon cable connector on the front panel, which I read sometimes doesn't cut through the cable isolation and made poor contact. I believe that with temperature changes the material shrinks or expands and then there is bad contact leading to random behavior.



      BTW this is a very easy procedure that I strongly recommend you all, it only needs to take out 4 screws, the ones at the sides (torx type). Then retire the mounting legs and slide the aluminum front to one side and you should find the connector next to the power on switch. It looked pretty solid, but I rocked on the ribbon cable connected there and press hard the connector housing... It worked for me, and my G major 2 doesn't failed again since that. But if someday it fails again then I'll solder the cable.



      cheers,

      JJ

      Chomii I have read a lot of bad things and a lot of nice things about TC products and now i am thorn apart. I was considering of buying ether G system or G major 2. After reading your post and many more posts similar to yours i am maby considering buying separate effect pedals instead. Do you still have the same problem with TC or you find a way to fix it.
      • October 25, 2013
    • lidserter
      lidserter The problem isn't with TC but with my unit in particular, but such problem occurs very often as you can read trough the forum.

      Actually my unit has freezed again twice, but turning power off and back on "solved" it on both cases. I haven't found the time to open the unit and solder each wire of the ribbon cable, but I'm sure this would fix it, however I can't tell... When done I'll post here in order to say if it worked or not.

    Hi,

    since there are many (!) threads about how to get a rig with a G-System silent, I'd like to give my input and share the knowledge I gained.

    I have two rigs which I combine with the G:

    1) G-System, Marshall JMP1, Engl 830/50 (figure 2, bottom)
    2) G-System, Mesa Roadster (figure 3, bottom)
    (The Morley is the same)

    I got both systems silent and I just have one (!) big (!!) cable to connect them both:

    figure 1: 8channel snake and jacks

    better quality: http://www.2WO-quadrat.de/__extras/snake.jpg

    I use the MIDI to change programs on the JMP and the switch jacks if I go with the Roadster (which by the way makes bad switching noise, but it's a problem of the Roadster, not of the G's switches).
    If you wanted to use the G R-out to go stereo on rack systems, you would of course need another (third) Ebtech channel. I use it to route my acoustic sounds (that com from the Fender VG) to the main stage PA.

    For this setup you need:

    - 8 channel snake (I got 9 metres for big stages ) (6,90 Euro per metre in Germany),
    e.g. http://www.thomann.de/gb/sommer_cable_quantum_highflex_multipair_8.htm

    - several jacks as you can see in the picture (2x) (depends on type < 50 Euro)

    - Morley Ebtech HumEliminator (66,- Euro in Germany),
    e.g. http://www.thomann.de/gb/ebtech_by_morley_hum_eliminator_2.htm

    - patience and a bit of soldering skills (always use soldering flux!!! ... serious!)


    This is (as far as I can see) the absolute easiest way to connect the G with the 4-cable method to an amp or a rack-system. I had the experience that you always have to put the Ebtech before you go into the amp (Ch1 for Amp input, Ch2 for Amp return/PA in) like:

    G. Insert send -----> balanced cable -----> EBTECH in ch 1
    EBTECH out ch 1. -----> short well shielded cable -----> Preamp/Amp input

    Preamp/Amp Send -----> balanced cable -----> G. Insert return

    G output -----> balanced cable -----> EBTECH in ch2
    EBTECH out ch2 -----> short well shielded cable -----> Preamp/Amp Return or Poweramp in

    You have to spend money but you CAN get the G quiet. I still have a bit of loss in dynamics cause I use the boost on the G. It also results in less gain in the drive channel...but the Mesa Roadster got enough.

    Hope I could help,
    Fred

    ***EDIT***
    OK, here's another scheme, of how to wire a setup with G-System and Roadster. Try without pedals first. If it is clean (no hum) then add pedal by pedal into the loop. If there's hum again, when adding one pedal then use another hum-eliminator between loop send and pedal in.

      proxy Hi there



      I am just wondering if you can tell me where to incorporate Rack EQ with this set up?I'd like to keep EQ at the same levels at all time.



      Your help is appreciated
      • September 22, 2008

      elfredoo why don't you lock the eq of the g?



      i would begin by setting your system up without eq and get it clean. then integrate it a) pre-gain: between G-insert-out and hum-e1 or b) post-gain: between G-out and hum-e2

      JayS Hi, great idea for a clean setup. I just ordered some 8-channel snake and a EH-2 but now I'm wondering how did you wire those plugs, because it seems the first input plug is mono and the rest are stereo plugs?



      Also, I found this for MIDI wiring: http://www.philrees.co.uk/midiplug.htm . Can you confirm that this is correct?

      Don't worry about it.

      1) The EbTech converts between balanced and unbalanced signals. You use the snake between the balanced jacks of if the G-System and the EbTech. You then use SHORT unbalanced connections between the EbTech and the amp. So on these connections, there is no issue since balanced and unbalanced connections are being converted properly.

      2) As-wired by Fred, one connection does cross between an unbalanced jack (the amp send) and a balanced jack (the g-system insert return). Since the output end of this connection (the amp send) is the unbalanced one, and the input end of the connection is balanced, this creates a "pseudo-balanced" connection - which has some of the RF-cancelling properties of a fully-balanced connection.



      Thus - in this configuration - all 3 connections between the amp and the g-system are balanced - and two of the 3 are transformer isolated. In most cases, this results in sufficient RF prevention, in even the noisiest EMI environments.



      Having said this, in rare cases - a ground loop may also be present on the amp send <---> insert return connection. If this happens, you may want to consider another EbTech so you can transformer isolate that connection as well. Doing so will also reject more RF since the connection will be truly balanced rather than pseudo-balanced. Note: most folks do NOT find this step necessary. I do it in both my home studio rig (where ALL line-level connections in the studio are balanced and transformer isolated - a HARD, fast rule in my home studio) and in my portable rig - where I have mounted two EbTech boxes onto my amp and wired them up semi-permanently.

    Just wanted to know what amps are u guys (and gals) using with your Nova System. I want to change my Fender '59 Bassman Ltd (a reissue) because the bass sounds woofy and the highs are too ice-picky at high volumes. Also, the nova distortion sounds subpar with this amp. What do you recommend? I need a 40-50W amp that can stay pretty clean at higher volumes.

    In my attempts to improve things on my pedalboard, and based on some recommendations and thoughts from other folks, I decided to see if I could replace the rather-bulky and AC-driven Valvulator buffer with a Lehle Sunday Driver.

    There have been several threads about drivers here - and this could go in any of them. I figured I'd make the topic more specific and target this thread at THIS combination...the Lehle and the G-System.

    The short story is that I was immediately able to get the same tonal benefits from the Lehle that I got from the Valvulator. I just put the Sunday Driver in the spot where the Valvulator was, set the boost level on the Sunday Driver to "no boost" and - bingo! Because of its rather diminutive size and power requirements, it will be any easy decision to keep in on my board and EBay my Valvulator.

    The susprise was that I was able to go one better. Huh what?

    Most of us set the input gain on the G-System to somewhere between +6dB and +10dB. I caught myself thinking this way - what if the VERY clean boost in the Sunday Driver is BETTER for this than the input amp in the G-System? So - I tried it. I set the G-System input gain to 0db and turned up the boost level on the Sunday Driver to compensate. I had to tweak the loop level after this - but in the end there was a noticable improvement in sound quality.

    I am still thinking on why this would be, and invite others to propose ideas. But for those of you considering a buffer between the guitar and the G, this little yellow box is worth at least some consideration.

      Banenis I've been reading that even some folks with the new g sys (new input section specifically, with regard to this discussion) are still finding buffers between the guitar and the g input to be beneficial, tone-wise.



      I've been considering experimenting with one myself but spending a few hundred bucks to order something that I can't try in a store first is a little scary. (My local guitar center seems afraid to stock anything that doesn't appeal to 16 year olds.) so I'm also curious to read the thoughts and findings of others for some direction and insight.

      Hi Banenis,

      Laird's recommendation on the Lehle is an excellent choice. I didn't have the extra cash for that, so i took a risk on a MI Audio Buff+Boost, and i was not disappointed. And just like Laird mentioned, i have been able to play with the input level, using the MI more and reduce to nearly 0 db. My G-System is one of the new versions, but not only did the buffer make the tone outstanding, it resolved an on going "hiss" on the insert send > amp in, even in a 4 cable method using EBtech units.



      The MI unit is quite affordable, and excellently made.



      Just a thought.

      wsot I have the Lehle Sunday Driver and it really does the job well. It seems to add clarity (if that's not a contradiction) and definition. I would not be without it now.

    So, I finally got in the MIDI Y-Cable to hook up the Nova Drive to the G-System but it's been adding a strange beeping noise to my setup. Here's the sample:
    - http://www.mediafire.com/?t2njj2iwgmq

    I amplified the noise by putting a Suhr Riot after it to exaggerate the noise. You can hear the bleeps, but when I turn down the guitar volume, it's gone. Dialing the rotators, by the way, generates the beeping noise as well, though I'm not sure if this is normal. Having the beeping constantly, is really a no-go.

    My setup for this:
    Gibson SG-X -> Suhr Riot -> Nova Drive -> Input of the G-System (4CM) -> Koch Powertone -> Koch TS212 closed back cab

    Has anyone had problems like this as well?

    I am working on really learning the ins and outs of the volume and expression pedals on the G so I can fill in the 4th chapter of the white paper. In working on things, I have managed to get things working pretty well with my rig. I am using and FV-500H and an FV-500L.

    I tried a couple of things and got very different results. Here is the deal thus far.

    Volume Pedal Config #1
    Wiring: FV-500H Out --> TS-TS Cable --> G-System Vol Jack
    GFX Vol Type: Vol
    Calibration range: Bass-ackwards

    Calibration did not work at all. In fact, it calibrated "backwards" - with the MAX at 0 and the min at something like 12. STRANGE-ola. Clearly did not work. Tried with a couple of different cables to be sure it was not cable-related.

    Volume Pedal Config #2
    Wiring: FV-500H Expr--> TRS-TRS Cable --> G-System Vol Jack
    GFX Vol Type: Expr (Since I am using the linear pot on the FV)
    Calibration range: 0-50

    Not bad - but a lot of the pedal motion is wasted. Useable though.

    Volume Pedal Config #3
    Wiring: FV-500H In --> Y-Cable Ring
    FV-500H Out --> Y-Cable Tip
    Y-Cable TRS --> G-System Vol Jack
    GFX Vol Type: Vol
    Calibration range: 0-99

    Used a 1/4" Insert cable (TRS-to-dual TS Y-cable). Works great. Motion is smooth and most of the pedal range is useful. Volume swells and diminuendos are quite smooth sounding. I am really happy with this one. IMO, this is THE way to use this pedal for volume - period.


    Expr Pedal Config #1
    Wiring: FV-500L Expr--> TRS-TRS Cable --> G-System Expr Jack
    GFX Expr Type: Expr
    Calibration range: 0-50

    This seems to work fine - but the wah felt a little odd to me...but check this out...


    Expression Pedal Config #2
    Wiring: FV-500L In --> Y-Cable Ring
    FV-500L Out --> Y-Cable Tip
    Y-Cable TRS --> G-System ExprJack
    GFX Expr Type: Vol (Since I am using the Logarithmic pot on the pedal)
    Calibration range: 0-68

    Wider detection range - and actually much better feel on the pedal. I may be weird, but I think I like this one better.


    Expression Pedal Config #3
    Wiring: FV-500H In --> Y-Cable Ring
    FV-500H Out --> Y-Cable Tip
    Y-Cable TRS --> G-System ExprJack
    GFX Expr Type: Vol (Since I am using the Logarithmic pot on the pedal)
    Calibration range: 0-98

    I tried the FV-500H for expression duties, and it worked great with the Y cable.


    I need to play with controlling some of the other expression parameters besides the wah before I make any recommendations - but using a Y-cable with the FV-500H appears to work best for BOTH pedals - although things work pretty well with the FV-500L as well.


    I DO think that TELLING the G-System what kind of pedal is connected to the jack is REALLY important. You can use a volume pedal for expression, and you can use an expression pedal for volume...but you HAVE to tell the G that you are doing this. It probably makes some kind of internal adjustment for the logarithmic pot in the volume pedal. Smart.

      Tom-Andrew Thanks Laird!

      I've been waiting for someone to post something like this since there has been so much talk about this through the years but with no real answers regarding TRS-TS/TS Y-cables, TS-TS, TRS-TRS and so on...



      What about latency? I have an old EB pedal that introduces some bad latency and now I'm looking at alternatives and those Boss FV-500 pedals are at the top of my list right now.



      Also, you are plugged straight into the GFX brain, right?

      Have you tried plugging into the foot controller instead? I feel some notes about that would be helpful too.



      One last thing... Insert cables; I was under the impression that on a TRS-TS/TS Y-cable the Tip is Send and hence the Ring is Return? Wouldn't it make more sense to plug Tip to In, Ring to Out if that's the case?

      However, I've tried both ways around with my EB and G and it didn't really make any difference...



      Thanks for your efforts!!

      bucketbot As an aside I discovered a way today of using one single FV500 for both volume & expression control.

      I currently have my FV500 conmected to the EXP jack on the G with a TRS cable & it seems to work just fine for expression control.

      Today I was experimenting with a 3 way true bypass looper which I now have in loop 1 with that loop set to be always on in my patches.

      I have this set up with my Whammy & Boss SD-1 in 2 of the loopers loops which allows me to free up 2 switches on the G for switching other things and still allows me to switch in & out (true bypass) those 2 pedals using the looper switches when I wish.



      As I had one loop in the looper pedal free I decided to try and also connect the input & ouptput of the FV500 into the spare loop on the looper pedal.

      It works a treat as the FV500 seems to function both as a Volume pedal & expression pedal at the same time.



      So if I need a volume pedal I just hit that button on my looper pedal and that brings the volume aspect of the pedal into the circuit.

      As you are not likely to want to use both Volume & expression control at the same time I see no conflicts.

      However if you engage a patch which has a parameter controlled by one of the modifiers controlled by the expression pedal it does vary both that parameter & also the volume at the same time!



      Works for me!!

      Tom-Andrew Actually, you could connect the Y-cable to the input/output on an FV-500 for volume control and a TRS cable to the expr jack for expression control using the same pedal...



      If you have a stereo pedal, you could use two Y-cables.

      True but if you are connecting the Y cable to the Vol Jack on the G system, which I assume is what you mean? would you then not be using the G system to control the volume rather than controlling the line level of the signal directly with the pedal.

      Would this not mean that the volume pedal would be active all the time?



      My method allows you to turn the Volume pedal on & off independantly of the G System.

    I've just finished first rehearsal with my new X4 and I find that the pedal is VERY crippled without a global tap tempo option. It basically limits you to one preset per song unless you want to tap dance every time you want to change a preset.

    The solution shouldn't be hard to implement, global tap tempo which is turned on and off by holding different footswitches simultaneously (or a combination) and which would be active on all delay types except slap.
    We're not talking going in too deep like some other units out there and programming global tap tempo on a preset basis, just a simple on and off option would be fine, I believe I speak for a LOT of fellow guitarists out there who use it live with a band.

    Just a suggestion...

      lifele55 An option to toggle between both will be good like the nova system..

      zvina Ok, I got an official statement from Mr. Nicolas in TC's support. They didn't implement global tap tempo on purpose, for keeping the pedal simple. He also said that if enough users asked for a feature, there's a chance it could be implemented.



      I'll quote a small section of his email: "But I just wanted to advise you and all users that would truly like a feature to be implemented, to say it in the forum."



      So here it is, if you'd want to see global tap tempo implemented in X4, please write it in a post in this thread.



      Thank you

      pdxfairview As it stands, I think the tap tempo indicator is confusing. Here's why:



      When in delay mode and with the X4 bypassed, the tempo light flashes at some rate. Presumably, one would think that if you activated the delay, that you'd enter at the delay tempo of the flashing light. But in fact, the light serves no useful purpose, as there's no way to access a delay at the tempo of the light (because when you step on any of the A, B, or C presets, you enter at the stored tempo of the preset).



      I think it would make a lot more sense if the tap tempo light were disabled while the X4 is in bypass mode.

      Alternatively, if the tap tempo light is going to flash while in bypass, then A, B, and C presets should activate at the tempo of the light (ie, a global tap tempo function as described above).

      Benguitar Is it okay to suggest ideas for new patches here? I'm very new to patch making and I'd love to have someone professionally make a patch that I suggest-

      blksolo While I do appreciate the uploaded patches,I am ASTONISHED by the LACK of patches to be found for the Gmajor2. I just sold my Pod X3 Live specifically to get a Gmajor 2. I can go to the Line 6 website and there are more than 60,000 patches for the X3 Live. Now before everyone flames me I know that 99 percent of those 60,000 are crap,that leaves 1 percent of those patches useable. Thats still 600 patches!!! And we only have 18 for the Gmajor 2??? I looked all over the web and you cant find ANY websites with patches for it. Its like selling a computer and then telling the buyer he has to write and develop his own software for it. Sure I could start developing my own patches,but since I am in a cover band I need 30 or 40 different sounds and dont have the time to program all of those. I figured I could buy the product,hop on to the website and have tons of patches to download,guess I was wrong.On the bright side this thing sounds killer!!!!

      TC-Mike Hi guys,



      while the new editor makes it very easy to program and modify patches, it totally agree that we need more of them in our vault. So if you guys made some nice patches, you'd like to share just upload them or send them my way. (Preset or Bank files)



      Will upload some more of my own soon and create new ones if i have some time to spare.



      Since i'm a G-system user and don't have a G-Major2 at home my own stock of G-Major 2 patches is a bit limited.



      On a positive note we raised the patch count by over 400% in the last week , so consider this a kick-off. i'll try to motivate our G-Major users here at TC to contribute more patches too, so that the preset vault will hopefully grow much faster.

    Has anyone attached/mounted their NS to a pedalboard (specifically a PedalTrain board) and how? I assume you could simply slap some adhesive velcro on the bottom but are there any other alternatives?

      kjk2205 Hi. I have the same question. Did you ever manage to fix it ?. Does the pedaltrain case lid

      shut with the Nova fitted to the board ?

      I haven't bought a Nova yet but would like to know in advance. thanks

      robberns Yes, that is how I have my Nova System attached to my Pedal Train.

      And the soft case lid does close.

      Danrues I carry a Nova System inside a SKB Stage Five pedalboard along with a Boss SL-20 slicer, a Boss RC-20XL Loop Station and a 95Q Crybaby Wah. The Nova is attached to the pedalboard by two 3/4" velcro strips and is just at the left corner of the pedalboard base.



      As a caution measure I put a 1-1/2" eggcrate foam pad on the inner top of the pedalboard case.



      The SKB is heavy as hell but i have not gotten any loosen toy inside of it yet...:/

      Ah thanks...mine is the original hardcase.

      onestop I'm using a PedalTrain 2 board with hard case and found that after attaching the Nova System to my board (and I'll get to that part in a second), I wasn't able to close the case.



      So I made a flat pedal board to fit in my PT2 case and bingo, fits like a charm!



      As for velcro, I ended up "gently" peeling off the rubber pad off the bottom of the NS and attaching it to a piece of aluminum foil (to save it for later) and slap some velcro right to the bottom of the TC unit. Works like a charm and I've preserved the rubber pad on the bottom.
