My supplier doing milling and printing has finally been able to print a new batch of GKPX-14 enclosures.
This means I can now start to assemble new units. It's been a long wait.
Glad to hear that. Given that we're in the midst of a global pandemic I'm not surprised there are some delays ...

Actually mostly it was related to a industrial flatbed printer size of a small room, printing on wood, glass, metal or almost any material, that had gone bad in the printing head.
Had to wait a month for the service engineer replacing the head for abt. $3000. It's a really cool machine. Also prints white color.
Got more gear than I need...and I like it!

Have you a 90° Angle hex that allows both 1/4 inch inputs to be accessible at the same time.

I asked before a long time back.

Really can't figure out what you're asking for Hurricane Amigo. Please explain better (I mostly speak Swedish you know)  ;D

Sounds like he may have a Godin where there is the 13 pin connector in between a 1/4" jack for magnetic, and also a 1/4" jack for piezo. If so, most right angle 13 pin connectors block the piezo output, when inserted. So, if the 13 pin connector could right angle downward, it would alleviate the problem. I know I would also like that for my Godins.

On request I can turn the angle in any 45 deg steps. Often need to re-solder one 'magic' ground wire but that's ok. You may have any of the four quadrants if asked for. Cheers.

That's cool and thank you thebrushwithin for assisting.

Yes to being able to have that 90° angel so I can have access to both inputs of the guitar with the 90° plug .

On stage the my guitar's straight plug cable hits the floor on many of my guitar stands.

A 90° angel plug helps prevent this.

Please realize I haven't been on line a while while in Mexico.

°¿°What is the cost for a cable with this 90° facing away from the guitar °?°

Thank you. And where in Sweden are you I have relatives  there.

Started production of another 50 pcs GKPX-14 units. It's been a while since the last batch.
- Enclosures - Done!
- New PCB's - Going into production as soon I get the go from producer. Everything handed over.

Hi,

is anybody thinking about to use a raspberry for stomping the Patches ?

i know my GR33 allways boot with the same Patch i will find out if other devices

can be programed the same. than the GKPX know how to start and you can select the Patches via a GUI for all

an send it to the GKPX

(sorry my english is not the best)

Hi I'm not sure how you think that would work. GKPX can't send patch change not even pull S1/S2 buttons. It's simply a 2xUS-20

hi,
ok
The Reason i was thinking about this was i am currently using Y cables.

if i connect all my Devices sometime one device starts changing patches .

and this was not allways the same device.

i got everthing install in a Rack except the VG-99

with a US-20 before the Y-Cables

my idea was if i can select the device (stomping) i can send signals to the 13 pin to change patches
10 Down switch signal (switch to GND)
11 Up switch signal (switch to GND)
let the raspberry know what patch is active for each device


so can create playlists to change patches on all Device via the raspberry
something like this

VG-88  GR33  GR55 SY-1000
03-3  C31  05-3  02-2    Set1
01-1  D32  14-2  10-1    set2

Ok, if I follow you're thinking you want to use three Arduino ports.
Port 1 : Emulate S1 pressing
Port 2 : Emulate S2 pressing
Port 3 : Emulate GKPX footswitch pressing

1. You run port 3 with a specific pattern to pass S1/S2 only to GKA
2. Operate port 1 & 2 for S1/S2 intil done with GKA

3. You run port 3 with a specific pattern to pass S1/S2 only to GKB
4. Operate port 1 & 2 for S1/S2 intil done with GKB

5. You run port 3 with a specific pattern to pass S1/S2 only to GKC
6. Operate port 1 & 2 for S1/S2 intil done with GKC

7. You run port 3 with a specific pattern to pass S1/S2 only to GKD
8. Operate port 1 & 2 for S1/S2 intil done with GKD

If this is your thinking it would work but each total song change would require some seconds due to foot switch timing.

Personally I would control the synths using Arduino with MIDI out, having all synths listening for PC# on different MIDI channel.
