    The Ghost 59

    Thanks slockrem for the wiring info. I'm getting ready to do a transplant useing a GraphTech Ghost, and was trying to figure out how to wire it to the Variax board.

    MIDI idiot here. need help with HD 500 and FCB 1010

    Thank you both. The editor seams the way to go for me. I've downloaded it and will give it a shot.
  3. I know absolutely nothing about using MIDI. The FCB 1010 foot switches work just fine as they are out of the box. (They change presets in the set list, this allowes me to change to different open tunings.) I would like to be able to control the expression pedels (which would control FX "Mix") with the FCB 1010. I can't for the life of me figure out how this is done w/o something else getting screwed up. If I were to try to use everything I want right now my rig would be. JVT59 (with locked Vol to control distortion, locking tone doesn't work for Sh!#), POD HD500 (as a hub and tuner), FCB 1010 (to change chords M, m, M7, Maj7...), Copycat Tape Echo (With footswitch), Twin Reverb (With reverb and tremolo footswitch.) That's too much crap on the floor and too much to try to get to seated with one foot. Can anyone help me set my FCB 1010 expression pedels up to work with the HD500?
  4. That is exactly what I wish I could do. But as long as I don't want to change any of the amp or effects settings besides mix I can work with this. With JTV Vol. and Tone locked and set to adjust the mix of effect; I just have to set all of the effects in the POD presets that a MIDI bank controls exactly the same so that, when changing chords, they transfer from one to the other. (Hope you can follow that last sentance.)
  5. I sold some vintage speakers and was able to buy a Behringer FCB 1010. So far so good. I can have 10 tunings at the touch of a pedal. At the moment I am playing with open E tuning: 1-M, 2-m, 3-M7, 4-m7, 5-Maj7, 6-M II (open A), 7-m II, 8-M7 II... Thinking of locking the JVT Vol. and Tone controles to adjust mix of effects. I found that the POD Expression pedal setting will stay from preset to preset, should be the same for the JVT knobs. If not I can use individule effects, all I need are Reverb, Tremolo, and Echo and a little distortion. I have two of the four on my '63 Vibroverb Reissue the third with a Watkins CopyCat. I can use the FBC 1010 to turn two of them on and off if I cant find a way to use the POD FX but that takes away two tunings. Eventually I want to use pedals to turn off strings for some fills and solos, but to be able to have ten "tunings" instead of four is a big step forward. It's all trial and error now. I still haven't figured out the FBC/POD programing, I am just adjusting the set list in the POD. The FBC starts at set list 1, bank 1, A for switch one and set list 1, Bank 1, B for switch 2... as a default. Will update as I learn more and progress. Thanks Alex and thorneven.
  6. Thanks Alex, Just took a quick look at the Behringer FCB 1010 and it may do the trick, and the price is not too bad. I have never used MIDI before and reviews say it is hard to program but I love a challenge. I'll report back on how it works in a few months.
  7. I got my JVT59 and POD HD500 because of the alternate tuning feature. I have no skin sensation in my hands and some paralysis so I open tune and use a "Guitar Barre" to fret. With the POD I can get 4 different types of chords using presets, for instance A (M), B (m), C (M7), D (Maj7). This is great, but is still limiting; much better than just Major chords w/o my Line 6. It not only limits chords but also limits effects on the POD. When switching from A to B, all of the effects have to be the same settings and on or off in the same configuration. I want to make a pedal board that just switches the tuning; in theory this is simple. The problem is I don't want to destroy the original tuning selector and destroy the function all together. Does anyone know how to get a second rotary selector switch to wire into a new pedal or some other way to achieve my goal? As I told Line6 in a letter last year the JVT and HD500 combo can enable may people like me, who can no longer play conventionally, express themselves. Thanks for any input.
