Midi Controller Stomp Mode Setup Error

Hey everyone,
I have a setup where I am trying to have my midi controller, a Morningstar MC8 control both a dirty amp and a clean up. The way I am setting up the preset is that the dirty amp will be controlled by Switch A and the clean amp will be controlled by Switch B. I have the dirty amp on row 1 and the clean amp on row 3 (not sure if this matters or not) The problem I am having is that the switches are not turning on properly. I have my midi controller setup in toggle mode, so the first position is that everything set to Switch A will turn on, everything set to Switch B will turn off, and then in second position everything set to Switch B will turn on and everything set to Switch A will turn off. The problem is that this is not happening. It is turning every switch on both A and B in first position and then turning everything off in second position. It should be possible to send a midi command to turn certain things on and off at the same time right? Please let me know if I am doing this right. Thanks everyone.

Hey, try sending this to our support team.


Hi UrGreen. I’m using the same setup and I think what may be happening to you is this: midi control of the individual blocks on the QC is NOT fully implemented. You CAN turn individual blocks on/off via midi BUT it works like an on/off switch i.e. every time you send a midi CC command the block will flip to it’s other state. I’ve posted a feature request asking to have each blocks state be fully midi controllable…not sure if my request will ever see the light of day but I have my fingers crossed.
I currently have my MC8 controlling 4 basic setups: 1. Clean 2. OD1 (a little hair) 3. OD 2 (crunch) 4. Lead. I like to have flexibility when I’m playing so just using Scenes doesn’t always work for me. To get around this I control the different setups by switching back and forth between Scene and Stomp modes via the midi commands. I have the MC8 issue a chain of CC commands to change the Scene then switching BACK to Stomp mode so I can turn individual blocks on/off via the switches on the QC. The downside to this is as I said earlier, I don’t have complete control over the state of every device so IF I turn on say…the compressor then switch to another Scene the compressor will STAY on…so…I end up doing the pedal dance…which I’m trying NOT to do! I hope this helps you. Let me know what you think!
Please NEURAL give us midi control of the individual blocks!!!

…just a little correction here…you can control the “switches” that are assigned to the blocks via midi…

Hi my friend,

But when you re send the midi message, the status returns to the initial.

it’s not good, maybe for same application works, but for others certaly no.

thanks so much
