I spent a long time searching for that elusive solution to one stomp to control pedals, MIDI devices and amp channel switching. Coupled with the Audio Switch, this controller can be configured to use or bypass your favorite pedals (in front of your preamp), operate your MIDI rack effects (for behind your preamp) and actually control your channel switching of your preamps. With a single stomp, I can switch to my high gain preamp, feed through my overdrive pedal, and switch to my G-Major's lead preset. No more stomping on three different switches every time I do something as simple as change to a lead tone. I finally have a setup that offers expandibility and doesn't affect my preamp tone (Mesa Triple Recto) I can't see ever having to redesign my rig again.

Have owned this item for 3 yrs now. Given it is built well. When i purchased this it was in the XXX.XX range. When i got it out of the box , I was very excited to finally have a controller for my 11 Rack.
The unforgivable con to this unit is the total lack of a Editor/Librarian software to make it at the least a semi useful tool. I have waited years
now and all forums i have read tell me i am not alone in this.
So No,, I would not recommend this this to my worse enemy as my hate does not run that deep for anything,, except this product and the Companies refusal to listen to paying customers!

      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

      from Florida

      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

      Total Control!

      By Devin Loertscher

      from Salt Lake City, UT

      Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

      I bought the Ground Control Pro, GCX Audio Switcher and Control Switcher and I've gotta say its the best investment I've ever made. I run the Midi out on the gcx to a Midi Solutions Quad Pro and out to the Control switcher and two whammy pedals. The whole thing is easy to setup, just be patient read all the manuals thoroughly and you'll have tons of control over your rig. Not only does this simplify my entire rig, it now sounds even more amazing and inspiring than ever.

      excellent

      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.

      Great product!

      By Eric

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

      Admittedly, I am always reluctant when spending money on gear that really doesn't alter or improve my sound. I have to say though, this is one piece of gear that I am very happy about buying. It is very well thought out and easy to program. I purchased it along with the GCX. I cover such a wide variety of music that I must have access to a number of effects, both stomp boxes and rack units and this accesses all seamlessly. Highly recommended!

      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.

      Ground Control Pro Review

      By Craig

      from Raleigh, NC

      Comments about Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI Foot Controller:

      I bought the GCP and the GCX switcher about a week ago. I am sorry that I didn't buy it sooner. The two items together are amazing. Not just for ease of switching between my Egnater Rebel 20 and 5150, but it really brings out the tone as well in these amps. It is very easy to program, sturdy and really clears the cable clutter that you noramlly get with pedal baords while on stage. If you want to buy a very well made, study, easy to use switching system for you rig and amps, this is the one. You cant go wrong.
