G-Major / G-Major 2 / G-System: How to control Blackstar HT-5 (new) channel switching

Question

How can I control the channel switching of my Blackstar HT-5?

Answer

The Blackstar HT-5 amp only needs 1 relay to switch betwwen its two channels. you simply need to connect a mono jack (TS) cable between one of G-System's SW outputs   (or  G-Major 2's switching output )  and the footswitch input of the HT-5.

When the relay is CLOSED, OD channel is on and if the relay is OPEN, CLEAN channel is on. 

Note that this only works on newer version of the HT-5, the old one uses a momentary switch and cannot be controlled by G-System or G-Major 2.
