Question

Hey doods, need advice.

I have a Powerball 1 v2 and I absolutely love it. I got with the standard Z-5 footswitch but like the idea of incorporating midi effects into my rig (probably a tc g major or something).

From what I can understand, the Z-15 is the only MIDI footswitch that will operate as intended with the mk1 Powerball (please correct me if I'm wrong), and as I am looking at using the Z-15 for control over midi and amp channel switching my question is this:

Can the Z-15 be used to recall midi patches AND switch channel simultaneously with one button? For example (put simplistically) have 'Patch A' stored as clean Channel I (amp) with reverb, delay, chorus, whatever (midi), and 'Patch B' as hi gain Channel II (amp) with comp, ts, eq, whatever (midi), and be able to switch between them with one stomp (as you would with a digital multi fx patch).

In other words what I'm looking to do is assign effets to each channel that get changed as you swap channels, much like you would with a channel dedicated fx loop.

Surely the Z-15 can manage this? Is is it down to the capability of which ever effects processor I go for?

Would love to see some more activity in this thread. Love this brand. Here's my Engl Powerball and ibanez iron label 7. Just doing some improv riffing. Have had the engl for about a year now and still love it.

Thanks man, i appreciate the compliment. Ive seen some other players on the ol youtube REALLY do this amp justice. If youre tasteful with your gain and eq, the leads are so fluid and thick. Focus switch owns for leads. I might do another video later with some more lead work and literally just flip the focus switch on. My playing lately has been very sloppy though. All my energies get spent getting better at mixing and mastering lately.

P.s. somebody in ug has GOT to have purchased the new Invader II. I really want them to show it off here.
