G-Major / G-Major 2: Which MIDI footcontroller will show ON/OFF status of effect blocks

Question

Which MIDI footcontroller will show the ON/OFF status of the effects in a certain preset?

Answer

The Rocktron All Access is able to show the On/Off status of the effect blocks, directly after a preset change. Of course, you'll need to connect both MIDI In and Out of the G-Major, as the unit transmits the On/Off information to the board upon preset change.

Other pedals, i.e. ART X-15 will also do the job.

The DMC Ground Control and Ground Control Pro achieves the same result, but in a slightly different way. It remembers all the block settings itself, so only a single MIDI connection will be necessary.  Click here to see an example on how to set up the Ground Control Pro.

Lexicon MPX-R1 uses other MIDI (sys-ex) messages and cannot show the status.
