I was just wondering if anyone knows if I were to use a midi control board, could turn my analog pedals on and off with it? I do not like multi effects pedal boards, but sometimes I need to turn multiple pedals on and off at the same time. and could I also use the same controller to switch amp channels(lets say its a tube amp such as an egnater or something)? I do not like distortion pedals so its kind of important to know if that is even possible too. If anyone knows and could help me out that would be great...thanks!

Look into the G-system or the cheaper Ground Control stuff. The G system can change channels, and RJM makes a little module that can select a channel for each PC (Patch) you choose.

Ok thank you I will look into those, but for an example say I bought a Tc elctronic G major and ran into an egnater tweaker amp, that has 2 channels, would there be a way to use any of those midi boards you suggested to control those 2 things plus a few analog pedals?

the g system runs a loop or two where you can insert analog pedals just about anywhere anywhere in the signal.

if you want more control then you'd need an extensive switching system that prob costs too much for your needs.

i think the g-system comes with some relay switching ability, this should allow you to change the channels on your amp.

as long as you don't want to run a bunch of pedals the g-system should suit you fine.

cheaper options are like the digitech xp1000 or line 6 hd series for example (they should have an insert loop and some relay switching, plus other modeling options).

Look into G-System and Voodoo Labs Ground Control.

Four switchable loops plus an insert in fact.

There is a big difference in price between the $400 G-Major rack processor he's asking about and the $1300 G-System that has switchable loops you guys are talking about.

True, but the G-System is exactly the right tool for the job.
