Ok, I'm really interested in all those complicated setups where you hook up a bunch of effects, either rack mountable ones or stomp boxes, into one processor, which then goes out to a midi foot controller. I know Rocktron, Custom Electronics, and Sound Sculpture make processors/switchers like these (what's the correct term?), but I have no idea how much they cost or where to get them. Yes, I know that they are probably pretty expensive and that I can't afford them, but I'm just extremely curious (possible planning for the future). Apart from the convenience of having all your pedals stuffed in a rack and just having the midi board out on the floor allowing you to switch in between tons of patches, I heard that these "gadgets" also help eliminate (or cut down) on tone suckage because they are wired in parallel instead of series (like a normal bass>pedal>amp setup). I know I read this for one such midi selector thingie (Voodoo Labs/Digital Music Corp GCX), but I don't know if it hold true for all of them. Here is the GCX: Digital Music Corp So my question is, can anyone shed more light on the topic? I would really really appreciate it, as would a few others here (I think). Thanks in advance.
