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'm trying to set up the ES8 to use the effects loop on the amp as described on page 15 of the ES8 manual:
Send Vol on ES8 to Amp Input on DSL5
RtnVol on ES8 to Amp Send on DSL5
Out 1/L on ES8 to Amp Return on DSL5
The problem I'm running into is that this setup seems to completely skip the volume controls on the amp.
Is there a setting on either that I might be missing?
