I am using a Tech 21 MIDI Mouse. Cheap and doesn't take up my real estate on the board. There is no phantom power supplied by the MIDI board, so, your 5 pin cables will work. You can use a 7 pin, but the other legs are dead. There has been some talk about why it doesn't supply phantom power, but for those that don't know, various MIDI controllers take different power, whether AC or DC and different currents. These voltages and currents could affect the operation of the controller, or kill it or harm the circuit. So, rather than make it for a specific controller, you can power any controller from your pedalboard power.

1) Connect a 5 pin cable from the MIDI in (left facing).

2) Connect the other end of the 5 pin to your MIDI controller.

3) 9VDC power to your controller. I use a LASD ISOpack, but Voodoo works fine, as do others.

4) Power up the amp and controller.

5) There are 3 lights on the back of the amp for the RJM Midi board. The left one is CHANNEL select, the middle one is SOLO select and the right one is WRITE. For the Midi Mouse, set it to 1 (or whatever you want) and select the CCV channel 1 on the front of the amp where it is active. The CHANNEL select on the Midi board will light up RED. Press and hold the WRITE button for several seconds until it goes out and flashes.

6) Set the controller to 2 and set the CCV to Channel 2 on the front of the amp. The RED light on the left of the Midi board will have went off. Press and hold the WRITE button as you did in step 5.

7) Set the controller to 3 and active the center button on the Midi board until it lights up white. Press and hold the WRITE button as you did in step 5.

Now you are set. 1 will give you channel 1, 2 will give you channel 2 and 3 will give you channel 2 and solo boost.

VOILA........ :thumbsup:

This is truly an unfortunate turn of events.

Many amps supply phantom power for a specific voltage rating, mA and one of either AC or DC. It's too bad the CCV doesn't at least power some controllers out on the market. If a person happened to have a controller that was incompatable with what the CCV was putting out, he/she could have just used a 5 pin midi cable to avoid frying their controller..... :cry:

Now I'm off to buy a RJM Mini Amp Gizmo solely to use for phantom power from behind the amp..... :doh:

P.S. My rant aside, thanks for posting this, Steve! :thumbsup:

No need for this. As long as your board accepts MIDI phantom power on pins 6 & 7, it is as simple as connecting your board's power supply (or any suitable power supply) to these pins. I've made adapter cables for guys that are made up of a simple female DIN followed by a male DIN with the power supply tapped in and others wired through. Plug in the power supply on the amp side, plug in a standard cable from the board to the adapter, plug the adapter into the amp, and you're done!

This should work. Plug your power source into this.

Thanks, guys. The problem is I already have a professional snake and it does not have this type of midi cable integrated into it. I'm not really interested in untethering the whole snake in order to accommodate this type of midi cable.

I'm just going to buy the RJM. The added benefit of having the RJM is that it will allow me to channel switch pretty much any amp I have - or any amp I might get in the future - using the midi pedal already integrated within my pedalboard. :thumbsup:

HMMMMM not sure what problems you guys are having with your phantom power but mine works fine with a 7pin midi cable into my randall rf4 midi footswitch. It took all of 2 minutes to program the channel 1, channel 2 and the solo channel to buttons 1, 2 and 3 on the foot pedal. I did have to cut away some plastic from the midi cable end so it would go deep enough into the chassis to set into the connector on the midi board. Works like a charm. :rock:

There is a difference b/w the proto and production midi boards as my prod has only three buttons. Channel solo and store where the proto has 4. Also Art is right. Production model does provide phantom power.

The 3rd button is not wired on the Proto. My only design issue is that I wish it had loop bypass wired into the Midi board. There is a bit of tone change with it engaged/disengaged.

The randall will work with 9-12v ac or dc.

Ya see the big black knobs labeled.."Presence" "Bass" "Mid" "Treble"?? Turn em to the left or right and things will change a bit and maybe compensate for any difference the loop may make...I'm here ta help ya buddy!! :thumbsup:

Steve when you loop is in run your channel volume up to 10-11 oclock use the return on the back for the amp volume. Give it a shot.

Yeah, I have been all through it. Part of it is the Timefactor send level and finding the happy place :D

Volume wise it is OK. I lose a little bit of the bypassed tone, but not enough playing live to worry much about. While the loop is a good one, "zero loss" is still an oxymoron! I can work around it though... :thumbsup:

I was at the LA amp show and forget to ask, but can the effects loop be disengaged with a foot switch? I only use a Roland SDE 3000 for delay effects and can switch it on and off via the Roland. At least I have do this with my Engl Savage. I prefer to switch the loop via a footswitch on the amp I do not have my Cameron yet, so just asking in advance.

No switchable loop, just by switch on the back of the amp. It would be nice if you could switch the loop from the fs though.

This is what I was hoping to hear. :thumbsup: I have plenty of RF footswitches & 7pin cables laying around.

Just to confirm; 7 pin MIDI cable -> Randall RF3 = success. Super easy to program as well. 1 CH1, 2 CH2, 3 SOLO. I didn't have to trim any insulation off my cable.

The Rocktron cable works great and fits fine into the CCVand the rf4. You are set.

This is truly an unfortunate turn of events.

So, rather than make it for a specific controller, you can power any controller from your pedalboard power.


A little late on the post (I've had the CCV for almost 4 months now :doh: ) but just hooked up a Rocktron Midi Mate and there is phantom power available. My amp was from the 1st run. Need to use 7 pin.

I bought one 2 months ago, but have not messed with it much since my CCV is not here yet. I assume you have to take apart the unit to put a battery in it since i did not see a battery compartment.

Its phantom powered from the CCV. No batteries or adapter needed. The Randal 4 button is an excellent made pedal. Don't think its cheap. The switches are tight and have a short throw. Very nice pedal.

Indeed. The RF3 & RF4 are great footswitches. I ran into them only because of my use of my MTS, I probably would have never tried them otherwise. Now, I hoard them.

I was looking for specs on the dimensions for the rf3 and 4 but could not find them anywhere. Seems like they take up a bit of space. I am currently looking into what midi pedal to use.

On the contrary, they are quite small if you are comparing them to midi controllers such as the MidiMate and similar. If you're interested I can measure the RF3 & RF4 later. Also, they seem to be built really well. I have not had an issues with any that I have used.

So I bought a Tech 21 Midi mouse. I don't like the sound of the G-Major through the loop, it does something to the tone and adds noise to the signal. So I am back to pedals and am using the Midi Mouse to change channels and solo boost. I am a little confused by the posts above ( I always am confused) and have some questions regarding the CCV and midi. I have one of the first 20 Brad built Mark signed amps. The RJM midi controller on the board is 5 pin. The Midi Mouse does not work without a battery or power from the board. Is my CCV supposed to have phantom power in the midi connection?

Thanks!

You can adjust the FX loop on the trim pot if you pull the head out of the chassis, it comes set for pedals so you can adjust it up for FX level and it will sound better.

The CCV does have phantom power. You need a 7 pin midi cable though. I hapen to have a nice 25' one that I had made with a right angle connector on one end of you're interested. ;)

I took the midi cable out of the "in" port on the amp and lo and behold there is a 7 pin connector. Thx Paul
