Yeah, that's an extremely vague question man. What are you trying to do?

That's like saying you want a crash course in food, and how to make it. :lol:

Not even how to make food. Like, and how to do the food thing. He could want to make food, eat food, sell food. :lol:

Do you wanna use keys/drums? Or are you tying to rig up a midi controller to an amp or something?

Just want the basics on footpedal to effects processor to amp. I guess guitar effects control. I have a midate, gmajor, and a rm100kh. Just want them to talk. I guess it is a hard question to ask. Sorry

No problem :lol:. The issue is that midi in that sense is sort of secondary, most people use midi to transfer what their playing on a keyboard for example, to a computer, so they can control the sound after the fact.

There was a pretty bitching guide on ss.org I'll try to dig up tonight

So I got the midi mate on ch1 and the gmajor on ch1. I can switch presets but can't learn like tuner mute it won't learn it when I press the button.
And how does it work with my midi controllable amp. If the gmajor is on ch1 do I need to set the amp on midi ch2 and then for every preset I would have to send midi ch1 and ch2 commands. I'm still alittle confused. I have searched the Internet for midi mate to gmajor setup. And I don't think anyone has wrote anything about the rm100 with a midi mate.

I sorted out a friend running a gmaj 2, jmp1 and a FCB1101. I ran the controller midi out into the jmp and thru that into the midi in of the g maj. I would imagine hooking it up like that with the midi mate would yield the same results. It was already changing patches for both, I did some tweaking on the g major and got it changing user presets instead of factory. Pretty much all I had to do then was organise and build patches on the 2 units so they'd be in the banks he needed them in.
Everything I needed to do was explained in a few pages of the manual for the g major and the online manual for the controller. It seems a bit confusing but if you narrow in on the sections that pertain to your problem then you should be able to figure it out.

Thanks I'll try that. The guys at Rocktron said all I gotta do was got to to button on midi mate I want which will got to the preset on the gmajor I want then press the amp channel button to the ch I want and then hold that button down. And it should remember it. God I hope it's that easy lol
