"This is the heart of the whole system. Everything's got a MIDI address, so Robert can tell the MIDI Raider all the parameters that he wants –which units in, which units out, which presets on the Axe-FX -and program it so that when he clicks on that patch, the whole system will go into the mode required." "The bottom ten switches on the right [numbers 1-10] are all assigned to certain songs. On the top row, 11 is what we call the 'lead' channel or Scene 2 on the Axe-FX and 12 has got Scene 3. Number 13 switches the Eclipse in and out and 14 and 15, labelled bottom and top, are the Eventide H8000 and 3000s."more
I have had the Midi Raider for a few years matched to their patchmate8 switcher unit. Similar to the GCX from other company but bought more up to date, and the midi raider has a smaller footprint on stage or in the studio so is a more preferred unit these days.
You can control just about anything with this pedal and the patchmate8 (which can chain up to 4 units) so flexibility is incredible and stuff like this the pro's use.
