So, according to the latest Email from G66, I should receive the Axe II by ~end of September...and if it does what I hope it does, I will have 2 (or even 3) different "rigs". Main rig: Diezel + Axe II in 4CM; 2nd rig: AxeII + poweramp.
So, we are also considering doing one step up, and start to play with clicktrack live. Now, when we are doing this, and I am going to keep the Axe, I want to take full advantage and programm all midi commands also in the backing track (Still have no clue about how that is done tough ) , and let the laptop do the work (preset- and effects-switching), and save myself some hardcore-stepdance on the floorboard.
My only problem - I dont know how I would best handle the situation with 2 different rigs, as I would need different presets for each of course. I'm pretty much a Midi-noob and just started reading through manuals and stuff, but its confusing me to death.
Lets say for example I have 10 sounds in use per gig, so I save the "main-rig" presets on 1-10, and the "B-rig" presets on 11-20.
My idea now: Programming in the midi file (which will be sent from Reaper/Laptop/Midi-interface to the Axe live) 2 different "chains" of commands, lets say on Channel 1 will be sent all preset-changes for presets 1-10, and on midi-channel 2, all preset-changes for presets 11-20 - and when I am at the gig/rehearsalroom/home/wherever, I simply change the midi-channel on the Axe FX, so, altough both "preset-change-commands" are sent, it only understands the one I need.
Is this possible, or, is my thinking of this correct?
I mean - of course, I could also just make 2 different projects in Reaper, and always choose which one I need...but as the computer will be in the hands of our drummer live...I dont want to rely on him always choosing the right one.
If anyone should somehow search for this also - yes, it works that way, easily.
