G major relay switching on a 3 ch Dual Rect? Help needed

Hi..
I'm in the market now for a G major after hearing all the good things abt it. What really caught my eye was the relay switching function.
However, my qns is, how do you connect the relay jacks to the 3 channel dual rect? I'm aware that there are 3 external outputs on the dual rect for each of its channel, one more for solo and another for effx loop. However, on the G major, I think there's only one output for relay switching? What type of relay jack is necessary? A Y splitter? A Stereo? or what can be done such that I can switch the 3 channels as and when I change presets via a midi footcontroller?

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks!

The G-major has a stereo jack, so with a Y-cable, you can switch 2 items at a time.

I don't think that will do the trick for the Rec... I wanted to use the G-major to switch the channels on my Mark IV, and I could only switch 2 of the 3 channels.

I ended up buying a Rolls/RFX RP-93 to swtich channels on the Mark IV--it can switch 4 relays at a time. Combined with the G-major, I get major MIDI switching:

Rolls switch 1--R1 channel
Rolls switch 2--R2 channel
Rolls switch 3--LD channel
Rolls switch 4--graphic EQ
G-major switch 1--FX loop
G-major switch 2--reverb

Good luck!

The RP93 is a heck of a deal--it's $150 new, generally $90-100 used. In addition to the 4 switches, it also has 4 loops, so you can use it to switch pedals in and out of your signal chain.

So aside from using it to switch the channels on my Mark IV, I also use it to switch my TS9-DX and CP-9 in and out of my signal chain.
