G-System with Nova Drive and Blackstar One 50 amp

Question

How do I connect the G-System, Nova Drive and BlackStar series One 50 amp via MIDI?

Answer

This is how:

Set Nova Drive to a different MIDI channel from the G-System and the amp (it is already set to Channel #2 by default).

  1. Connect G-System MIDI Out --> Amp MIDI In (standard MIDI Cable)
  2. Connect Amp MIDI Thru -->Y-cable "rx" connector
  3. Connect Nova Drive MIDI --> Y-cable single end connector
  4. Connect Y-cable "tx" connector --> G-System MIDI In

Please note that the factory setting for the Blackstar is to be set to "Omni", so you need  to change it (follow the instructions in the manual) to a specific and unique MIDI channel, different from the one used for the Nova Drive.
