    Does anyone know if this will work - using a Voodoo Lab Pedal Switcher with overdrive pedals in the loops, going into a TC Nova System (with the overdrive/distortion bypassed) and connected via midi, so preset changes on the Nova can also switch in and out the loops on the Voodoo Lab? It would be almost half the price of a G-System, but I'm not sure if the Pedal Switcher will work in this way without the Voodoo Lab Commander.

    No-one?

    Actually, I've download the Pedal Switcher manual and it looks like it won't change patches from a third-party midi controller.

    Does anyone know of a midi-compatible patchbay/loop unit which will?

    The Voodoo labs Pedalswitcher will not work in this case. You need their controller for that

    The one that would work is the Axess Electronics GRX4

    Anyone else find it scary that Voodoo Labs makes a pedalswitcher? I mean, their switches are horrible.

    Rocktron just came out with a floor-mounted version of the Patchmate. I'll bet that'd work nicely.

    Thanks for the replies - I used to have an Axess Head Switcher so I know their stuff is great.

    This is a great idea, did you ever get it working?

    Haven't tried it yet - to be honest I'm actually quite liking the in-built overdrive tones in the Nova system - they're a bit 'generic' but I'm using it mainly for a covers band playing modern chart stuff so the tones are quite well suited to that - I will try it at some point though - probably with a Rocktron patchmate.
