How does this work with the banks?
If I start the stuff up and am on preset 1, scene 1 I have 3 more scenes to access w the GCP on the bottom row and all the IA switches.
Is it as easy as hitting bank up and then the first button (bottom left) to be at preset 2?
Am I making sense? LOL
What I am asking is does the bank button then increment the presets 1 by 1 or how would you select preset 2? Seems that what I am reading is that though were using scenes we are getting less presets so it ends up the same count of options.
I may be confusing myself.
It will work that way if you program it to work that way. By default, the GCP will send a midi PC that matches the preset number on your GCP. Assuming you have the GCP setup for 4 presets and 8 IAs, and you wanted to use the suggestions in this thread to control, let's say 4 scenes for a given AxeFx preset, you would set the first 4 presets on the GCP to call up preset 1 on the AxeFx, then you would set the VCA control for each preset to the values suggested in this thread (00,07,14,21). This would give you presets 1-4 on the GCP, mapping to preset1, scenes 1-4 on the AxeFX. Then you could set the second bank on the GCP, presets 5-8, to ALL call up preset 2 on the AxeFx and set the VCA control values in the same way you did for the GCP presets 1-4. This would give you presets 5-8 on the GCP as preset 2, scenes 1-4 on the AxeFx, and so on... The preceding is just one example of how you may want to leverage the VCA to control scenes, but the major point is that you have to tell the GCP what program change to send to the AxeFX. In the scenario above, you need one GCP preset for each combination of AxeFX preset & scene, so to control 4 scenes on one AxeFX preset you need 4 GCP presets (All set to send the same PC to the AxeFx) with the appropriate VCA control values for each GCP preset (00,07,14,21). Works like a charm... Hope this info helps!
