I am going stir crazy trying to get my 6101 midi channel switching to work witha new Boss ES5.
The channel switching via the front panel and the footswitch works fine.
I am foillowing the instructions in the amp manual for midi channel switching without success. In the midi patch the amp is designated as channel 1 and I insert the channel number (ie 1, 2 or 3) as the PC. After I send the patch message from the ES5 then I press the relevant channel no. and the store button on the amp and the three lights light up as they are supposed to.
However it is not working despite my amp tech telling me that the amp is receiving the midi messages.
Should the 6101LE midi channel switching be able to be midi controlled with a Boss ES5 ? Are they compatible despite their age difference ?
Is the amp perhaps receiving but not storing ?
Any help from someone who uses midi switching on a 6100 or 6101 with an es5 or es8 would be greatly appreciated ....! Thanks.
I ve got a helix hx I am trying to use for channel swap on the amp.
For all of the above the following applies:
- JVM footcontroller is disconnection
- JVM midi has been reset: its on MIDI channel 1
Boss ES5 (works)
I can get it working using a Boss ES5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YI65cgA4XI
Midi cable setup: Boss ES5 (out) > JVM (IN)
Also going from Boss through the helix (midi passthrough works).
Midi cable connection: Boss ES 5 (out) > Helix (IN) > Helix (out) > JVM
However, this is using Midi patch panel change. Not sure how this differs from MIDI CC?
Helix HX (not working)
For Helix im following this video : https://youtu.be/simaPS7dzLw?t=55
Midi cable connection: Helix (out) > JVM
Im using MIDI CC and following the table in JSH User manual.
channel : 1
Function: CC: 16
= clean channel, Orange mode.
I set the amp up so that the midi controller is BLINKING and it doesnt stop blinking: its not receiving the signal?
I feel like Im close to getting there.
I just got around to updating the firm ware on the code 100 thought as long as i had the amp connected to my pc via the usb cable I would check out the code editor and it would not respond looked at the manual casually and did not notice any mention of how to connect
dos this need to be acomplished using a midi to usb cable
I have a problem with connecting a TC Electronics G-System to my JVM 410HJS. The way described in the manual does not work. Preset switching is not possible. The Midi channels have been matched to Ch 1 according to the manual but programming is not working. The JVM doesn't receive messages (no fast blinking). Does the G-System not send useable midi data at all?
Thank you in advance!
