First post here.
I have two effects processors (TC Electronic Fireworx and Roland GP-100) and only one midi pedal (Roland FC-200). Is it possible to have the one midi pedal send preset changes to both of the processors? Maybe somehow one at a time? I would like to be able to change patches on the TC Electronic, play some stuff then change presets on the Roland.
I have an A/B box in place already so that I can send my guitar to one and then the other and that already is great but I want to be able to change patches without having to get a second pedal.
I am a bit of a beginner when it comes to midi set up, settings, etc.
Does anyone have a solution?

The FC-200 sends only a single PC message at a time, so what you could do is have both processors set to the same MIDI channel, have the FC-200 connect to the MIDI IN of the first processor, then connect a cable from the MIDI Thru of that processor to the MIDI In of the second processor.
In this setup, your FC-200 will send the same preset change message to both devices. You could just program certain patches that get called up to be muted/bypasses/etc. if you only want to use one processor at a time.
For discrete control of each device, the hookup is the same, but a more advanced MIDI foot controller could send PC messages to each processor independently on their own MIDI channels.
