Need HELP!!! on Rocktron Piranha and Lexicon G2/R1 Midi Set up

I have a gig next week and i still can't figure out how to set up the midi.

I found the lexicon g2 has a user program from #251 to #300

How would I control a set up something like lexicon 251 with piranha #1?


I plugged 7 pin midi out from R1 -> midi in/remote to G2 -> 5 pin thru from G2 -> midi in/remote to Piranha.

(I tried R1 out -> Piranha in -> Piranha thru -> G2 in as well, but it worked same... Piranha can't be controlled by R1)

I even set G2 recieve channel 1 and same for R1. and transmit channel 1 from G2 and same for piranha.

But Piranha doesn't seem to work with G2!!!

It doesn't change patch to patch at all.



Also, I found, sometimes, if I step on let say #251 on R1, the piranha changes patch to #51. and same if I step on #252 on R1, it changes to #52.(and So for...)

but This only work if I step on like 10 times.(very random).



I hope I can find solution in this thread...

Please help me out here



Thanks!

Upon reading a few reviews on the Piranha, I read that people wish it had mapping capabilities. So, I would, if I were you, set up your tones in the Rocktron in a couple banks of 10, then assign your patch changes in the Lexi. I.E. Program change 1 = Patch 1 on the Rocktron and the midi thru sends a 1, but maps say 54 to the lexi.

You need to become intimately familiar with your Lexicon units functions and feature set.

Also, set your MIDI receive on the Piranha to OMNI mode or make sure you're receiving on the same MIDI channel that your controller is transmitting.
