    Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

    So every good guitarist comes to that moment when their pedal board is full or there is more than one pedal that you need to stomp at once (and you don't have time to stomp two before your next note). Yes, you can hook up switches and create lines of pedals but what you really want to do is to graduate to a semi-professional rig (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzG1Wo7yj48 for the Kings of Leon version). This is THE product (and it is in the video). It is complex and hard to learn but it is the bomb! Oh, and the documentation is for the really advanced user (which isn't me) so you may find yourself lost after page 1. But do not worry, their service is amazing if you have trouble figuring it out. It is an awesome product!!! If you get this with the GCX, read the documentation for this (the Ground Control) and not the documentation for the GCX (which makes the assumption that you may not have this).

    This thing is great!

    By Guyfromfl

    Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

    This pedal board has made my playing alot more enjoyable and satisfying. I use this with a Mesa 50/50, Tri-Axis and G-Major, Roland JC-120, GCX and Rocktron Expression pedal. Any tone I need is just a few foot taps away. So much control over the textures of my tone, from alot of different pieces of gear, but this board makes it all possible.

    I don't think I would trust that with any other product.
    The guys at Voodoo Labs put just about everything you can think of into this thing. I have had it for just about 2 years and every time I want to try something guitar/MIDI related, it is able to do it. I am very impressed with this board. Once you get to know the UI it is extremely simple to program. I like the fact that it has 2 expression pedal inputs, I only need one, but that just shows they have everything in this unit. It's no wonder the pros such as Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica (the list goes on and on) use this for their switching.
    The #1 button on the bottom row popped out during a show, and had to take it in to get it repaired. Although under warranty, I decdied to take it to a local shop (less down time, and no shipping) to get it fixed. The tech found that one of the buttons wasn't responding correctly also. The tech called Voodoo Labs and they sent the parts at no charge to fix, instead of sending it in to their repair station. That is great customer service. That faulty switch is a rarity in the type of switches they use.
    You can look into higher end midi controllers, but I don't think there is a need. This thing has almost every feature you can ask for, great documentation, adn outstanding support.

    great piece of equipment

    By virgil van arsdale

    from Mississippi

    Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

    I am a Newby to Midi stuff all though I have played Guitar for 30 years , I have allways steered
    away from Midi the fear of the un-knowen the frist time I seen Midi anything was in the 1980's
    no body I new had any Idea what it was .
    I draged my feet on buying the Voodoo lab ground controller for 3 months so I took a chance
    and I have only used it with my T.C. Electronics G Major 2 and it is great
    there is no lag time when I change banks/ channels when I push the button on the Voodoo lab ground controller pro the channel on my G major 2 changes instintly no lag time
    I can't wait to buy the voodoo lab GCX. to go with the Ground controller
    after reading the manual the possabilitys are endless
    with the GCX and the GC pro. you can run your effects in series and series parellel or parellel which gives you more dynamics and ton controlle of you effects peddels
    The two units together can make your effects peddels sound lke a effects processer but give you more controlle
    the normail way people run there effects is in series, through the front of the amp or through the effects loop but the peddles are still in series with each other
    most effects proccers run the indavidual effects in series/parellel or both series and parellel
    the Voodoo lab GC Pro and Voodoo lab GCX will allow you to do just that with your own peddels that you already have . its very Cool!!!!!
    but that is buying both units to do this

    I only wish the manual or thier webb sight or a tech at Musicians Friend gave you more info on linking up with various MIDI equipment
    I am a MIDI newby as features go, I don't no enough about it at this time but all
    of my resurch has showen befor buying this unit the Voodoo Lab Ground Controller Pro is the
    Cats meow !!!!
    as far as MIDI controller for Guitar equipment
    Voodoo Lab Ground Controller Pro is very ruged and sturdy and Road ready
    very well made
    Made in the USA!!!!!
    it is priced well for the quality its is well made I am impressed

    excellent

    By Mr. magic2000

    Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

    All the raves about this are true. It is excellent and extremely versatile after you study the manual and get to know it. There were some things that I wanted to do and didn't think it could until after I figured it out in the manual. That said the manual could probably be better.

    Bang For Your Buck

    By Shawn-9pTC-

    from Florida

    Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

    Probably the easiest controller to use. Up to four of the modules can be connected to this pedal which allows for many different effects pedals and effects devices to be accessed by the controller. Intelligent design and very high quality. Alex Lifeson of Rush uses this same one.

    Speechless

    By Adam-wgI.o

    from Madison, WI

    Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

    Here's the thing...This piece of equipment when paired with the GCX is phenomenol. I have pedals, an amp, and a G-Major that I can all switch with this piece of equipment (when paired with the GCX of course). I think I have run into the situation of being 100% completely satisfied with how I change/manage my rig when playing a show. Let me tell you, it brings quite the smile on your face when with the press of one button you can change multiple settings without doing a river dance.The only downside (very minimal) is that it took me awhile to set it up with everything. I was not familiar with MIDI at the start but I understood the concept. The manual is helpful to an extent but in my opinion could have been written better. Just as a reference, I had 3 manuals out, this one, the GCX's, and the G-Major's. You really don't understand what this thing is capable of doing until you start clicking around yourself. If you do purchase this and are new to MIDI, don't get too frustrated, your tenacity will pay off in the end once you get everything set up the way you want it.

    Love this thing...

    By tcstx

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

    Ok... I started with a very expensive rack, bought tons of expensive gear from here and ebay. Had everything coming together, then got programming anxiety! Too much rack stuff - it's not the 80s and I finaly was like "I would like to start playing and stop messing with my rack"... So...I started to look into "other" systems. Purchased a Line 6 POD X3 Live, StompBox Modeler from Line 6, messed with a bunch of combo amps and then finally ended up looking into Guitar Rig 3.The moral of the story? I started with the Ground Control Pro to run my Triaxis, G-Force, and a number of other rack gear that used MIDI. I switched to trying some "direct to PA" hype boxes that sucked at best. Finally I found Guitar Rig 3 and use it with some pretty expensive computer / AD/DA converters and love it... what am I controlling it with??? The Ground Control Pro...In my extreme spending sprees, I have found that this is good for a lot of "other" things than just a rack. It's diverse, universal, programmable, and rugged.I will always keep and replace equipment that can move with you... I went from 80's style rack gear to 2000 style digital gear... The Ground Control Pro is still my #1 choice for MIDI controllers.If it were stolen or damaged I would replace it in a heartbeat...

    Make Life Easier

    By Drop The E Baby

    from Casper, WY

    Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

    If you are tired of turning around to switch your rack this is a great solution with a great price. Ease of use is awesome, just pay attention to the manual the first couple of times and you will get the hang of it. (I was very afraid that I would have a terrible time programming this)When you add a GCX switcher to this, it becomes very powerful. Midi control + 8 instant access switches is really cool. You can pretty much do whatever you need your gear to do with this.
