Thx. This is not what I'm looking to do. I could make it work but I already have my rack stuff fully configured with 2 Switchblades and time based EFX galore. I need to find a way to make MF & TF work on their own, when I'm not dragging 400# of rack gear around. That's why I have them. Clearly I can go way past what the stomps can do with my rack stuff. H8000 + Axe Ultra render stomps unnecessary.
So, I'm back to the top, if you can't do this w/o midi merge, can I make it work like this:
Send PCs from controller to TF & midi
merge box, send midi clock out of TF to Midi Merge, and send midi merge
to MF. I don't need a midi-thru and this should work, right?
BTW: you might not want to be so anxious for H8000. I have both H8000 & Eclipse. Although the H8000 is in my gig rack, I frequently ask myself why I spent the extra $4K over the Eclipse. In the studio, for other stuff (great verbs…) it makes sense. But, if I were buying just for my guitar rack, I think I'd stick w/. the Eclipse. It is way more "guitar friendly".
