Re: semi OT - Guitar Synths

Bill any idea as this sounds parallel to the issue on my 80's charvell
setup.  From gtm6 to 81z there is communication (built in single ch
sequencer on charvel) however from my hex pickup install on the strat
copy guitar which uses a single guitar cable and the conceept you
described, which sends analog and midi down same pipe I believe. Is
not working.  There is an onboard 2 way sw that channels either guitar
pickups or hex.  The guitar part works but switching to hex no hex.
Though over 20 yrs old now it worked in the last year.  I spray a fair
amt of contact cl on the pots anbd switches.  I know this is vague but
rekative to the thrd.  Thx bill. Jim
