CRAZY RACK SETUP - Help!
OK Guys, I have a unique situation that I'm hoping you guys might be able to help me with.
I've got 2 preamps and would like to use both without running out of one and into the other.
I do have a G-Major in the mix and it does some switching, so maybe that'll work for me..?
What I have is a Bogner Triple Giant and an Engl 520.
They can both receive MIDI changes, so maybe that will help, but they both have three channels and have Midi channels 0, 1, 2 for switching channels.
Should I run my guitar into my G-Major and have that do the switching (with my FCB1010 foot controller, which now that I think about it, has some on/off external switching capabilities I believe...) between the two preamps, if so, how should I do it?
I wouldn't be against a midi switcher if that's the right route to go...but I know nothing about them.
Actually, I have a third preamp that I'd love to use as well and if I put that into the mix, maybe I'll HAVE to have a switcher then...but at this point, the two preamps would really be great.
So: to summarize, here's my rig:
Bogner Triple Giant
Boogie 50/50 Power Amp
If anybody has suggestions on how to use all six channels of these two preamps, they'd be greatly appreciated!
