How do I put together a Professional Rack System?

Posted by Scott Vallery on Sat, 04/22/00 - 20:30:51.

I'm interested in building a professional rack system for traveling on tour. Can I put something together that will switch multiple effects by one switch using midi technology? I'm not familiar in using midi, but I have an idea of how it works. I use delay, but different settings constanly, I use chorus, but at different settings also. I use very little equalization, some reverb and that is about it. But I can't use stomp boxes for what I need to do. I have a harmonizer I would like to use. I've heard about the Rocktron Bradshaw Switching system, but I'm not sure of what I need to put everything together. Hush boxes and etc. I have a RP-10 currently, and hate it. Too complicated and too much junk. Since it is digital, it cuts out between effects for a split second in the middle of songs, leaving a moment of silence between effect switching. I really don't want anything of the sort again. Can anyone help with suggestions, what to look for, who to contact in helping me. I need professional, experinced advice.

Do a search for a guy called Bob Bradshaw in the States. I've read an article about him and he works for all the pro's.

Probably pricey though :-(
