Hi there :)

I got myself a CP-100 for christmas after I recently saw that there was an affordable IR loader without much extra in a very handy format. So far I'm quite content with the device, but I got a suggestion for a (hopefully sometime) coming update - is it possible to give the set/esc button in the main menu the functionality to simply swich between the standart screen and the file name screen, but have the rest of the button funtion the same on both "screens" so you can also change presets and banks when seeing the name of the IR? This might help keeping an overview. Theoretically it should be a relatively easy thing to implement.

Also thanks for the preset editor, sadly only saw it after I've dialed all presets down to about 23 by hand XD. By the way, is there a free programm that let's you edit the impulse files? The problem with the DAW I use is that it can't really export a file that short.

Since I plan on using the CP-100 live I've soldered a stereo stereo jack to xlr cable kind of adapter, but haven't tried it out yet. Also there were some warnings about phantom power damaging the output capacitors on older models, is there an easy way to check if my device is protectet from that (e.g. plugging in a stereo cable and measuring the diode conductive voltage between GND and the ring and tip with a multimeter)? When it arrived it already had the newest firmware and orange paint, so I guess it's the newer model.

Cheers

P.S. just saw the CP-16 announcement, would've also been a good option since I like building my own pedals, but they get much bulkier than the CP-100 most of the time so it's alright :D

So, I figured it out myself after a while:
If you press "Sys" in Global mode, there's a line "midi pc map". There you can assign the program change commands. For the CP-100 FX has "only" 100 Presets (which does not exceed the 127 Midi commands available), it's pretty simple the corresponding preset number by default (1->1, 2->2,...).

All my problems were caused by a faulty MIDI-cable...The commands I sent were all corrdct from the start. Well, maybe someone else has also any problems in this area and might benefit from my experience, at least...

Hello,

did anybody figure out by now, how I can address specific presets with midi commands? That would be a great help.
I'm using a GLabs GSC-1 and want to instantly switch to specific presetes in the pangaea FX.

Any help greatly welcome! Thx upfront!

OVERDRIVE / DISTORTION pedals / Questions Regarding D2 & R2 Pedals
« Last post by mflemmer2 on December 13, 2016, 04:33:11 am »
Happy Holidays to all! I'm considering getting 2 AMT pedals, for 2 different shades of high gain. I use the clean channel of my Mesa/Boogie Studio Preamp as a foundation for pedals (basically Fender black face tone), into a Peavey 6L6 power amp. I've decided on the P2, but also want one of these three: D2, R2 or E2 (please, no R2D2 jokes). I've listened to online demos, most notably the ones by Brett Kingman. However, I'm hoping someone else that has actually compared these can chime in. I want the second pedal to provide more crushing lows and chugging rhythms as a contrast to the P2. I'm torn between the D2 and R2. The R2 seems a bit more defined in the lows, and better for solos, while still sounding massive. The D2 sounds like it might have a bit more gain, and be even more beefy/brutal in the lows, but I wonder if it tends toward muddiness. Between these two, which has the most gain? The heaviest lows? The best definition, especially in the lows? Does either tend to be fuzzy or muddy? I understand that the D2 and R2 are going to be more loose and "saggy" than the P2, similar to their related amps. Any advice is appreciated. The E2 sounds a bit too close to the P2, but with less gain, and the B2 sounds a little too dark, based on demos I've heard. Thanks in advance!

Okay - send/return is described as xs10/xs11 but anyway - issue's solved!
Thanx so much, now everything's fine again.

Hi there!

I got some output signal problems.
If send/return is not used (empty jacks) the output signal's suddenly very, very quiet - almost muted.
But if I use the effects loop, or just plug in a cable from send directly to return, everything's fine and sound's in regular volume.
This behavior's not normal, or am I off the wall  :o ?!? Don't know, if there's something broken, or any jumper in wrong position?
Does anybody has issues like that? Thanks for help!

I think the problem is with the one of the sockets (send or return) does not work well. There is no contact (probably) when nothing is plugged into a socket. See attachment

Thanks for the replies Dogman and Alexander.

I actually used the editor that someone made for the Pangaea,
I think I downloaded it at the same time I downloaded the latest
firmware update for the Pangaea.

I was able to use it to change the volumes of each preset on the
computer, it's a lot easier than doing it on the unit itself.

You cannot change the levels for all IRs at once. You have to change level of each preset.

Hi Ccouch,

to my knowledge, changing the volume of the individual patches is the only way to do it.
I got the same problem as IRs from different providers seem to be all over the map level-wise.
But as I only use a handful of favorites and not 100 I donĀ“t feel its too big of a problem.

Cheers!
