I have a GCP and a Boss FV500L connected thereto, and was wondering if someone could help me patch the FV500L to an effect block mix, and also global wet/dry mix, so the level of effect can be controlled from the floor via MIDI.
first you need to connect your pedal to the MIDI pedalboard and edit the parameters to assign a specific MIDI CC# to that pedal. Refer to your pedalboard manual for this.
Then you need to patch an EXTERNAL to that very MIDI CC# on Eclipse. EXTERNALS live under SETUP(click 3 times)>EXTERNAL. Start using EXTERNAL 3 as 1 and 2 may be used by factory presets. Press EXT#3 and under SOURCE you can select the MIDI CC message you have already set on the pedalboard. If you don't find the name/number, you have two options:
1- set SOURCE: MIDI Single and set CNTRL to the CC#/name you have choosen on the pedalboard.
2- let Eclipse understand which CC# you have choosen by skipping #1 and going to the next screen and press <CAPTURE>…now move the pedal connected to the GCP. Eclipse will "hear" the MIDI message and patch it to EXT3.
Now patch EXT#3 to the parameters you want to control by finding them, highlight and press and hold their soft key. Press the <MODULATE> key and choose EXT#3 as SOURCE. You'll also need to set the scaling, that is how much you want to control the parameters according to the movement of the pedal…basically setting a min and max value for heel and toe.
Refer to Eclipse user manual whiach has a dedicated section on parameters modulation that will unwrap all details you may want to know.
