So im looking for a Multi Fx that can change channels with latching switches and can give some classic fx like chorus, reverb, and some flanger any ideas?

Do you mean a multi-fx?

Only way you'll be able to set it up to change the channels on your amp is if your amp and the pedal has midi.

I used to use a tc electronics g major 2 for this purpose.

I'd have a preset using my amp's clean channel with chorus, delay, and reverb. Then I'd hit a button and it'd go to a patch using my amp's distortion channel with no effects.

Keep in mind you would also need a foot controller. I used the behringer one with like 10 switches and 2 expression pedals.

i would need a midi switcher right?

You need the g major 2, the foot controller, and some cables.

Not true.

Boss GT10 can do it.

TC G major can do it, but a midi floor controller is pretty essential there.
Some midi footpedals also have amp switching - so if you have midi gear, or want to head that way it's pretty easy.

For instance, the behringer FCB1010 - probably the most popular midi footswitch for amateur guitarists, has two switches for amp channels or whatever.

It's ok. He already admitted his mistake. No need to call him out on it.

I wasn't trying to be harsh or anything.
Just providing relevant information to TS. His post seemed to (almost certainly accidentally) imply that the G major was an unusual case of channel switching without midi. I was just trying to correct that.

So just to clarify/consolidate the posts above me:

If your amp has a 1/4" channel switch TRS jack, then it can be controlled with a TCE G Major 2, or a Boss GT8/10/100.

If your amp has a more complicated switching mechanism, like a 7 pin DIN or something similar, then you'll need some kind of go-between, like a RJM Mini Amp Gizmo. This is the worst place to be in, because it is by far the most expensive to rig up.

If your amp has MIDI, then you're back in a good place. All good MFX units have MIDI inputs and outputs, and this connection will give you the most control over your rig.

For some amps (such as my mesa f30), if one is handy with a soldering iron, one can simply create a cable with the relevant connectors. Amp specific information, and how to's on this kinda thing are available online, so do some research on your amp before spending a ton of money or losing hope

^ Have you done it? It's certainly possible in theory, but I may or may not be a little bitter because I could never get it to work with my JSX.

I hate your GT. sell it and keep your 6505.


Lets clarify the GT-10: it is meant for a mono cable footswitch, not a TRS. If you have a 2 button foot controller you may have to get creative. I had to switch the contacts in a cable to get the GT to work with a 6505. (Otherwise it was turning the FX loop on and off instead of changing channels)

In theory it's possible for the midi style like the JSX and 6505+.

No I haven't. I was going to do it about 6 months ago, but than ended up lending the amp to a mate. Only just got it back last week, and it's on the too do list (as well as change the effects loop from parallel to series).

Rp1000 can do it, but your still going to need the trs cables, which means you're in the same spot as using your regular foot switch anyways, lol!
