A robust MIDI-Switcher

bottleneck, 14.02.2015
I have ordered the Z11 to midify my recently buyed Engl E646.
The Z11 switches up to 8 features using either 4 stereo jacks (tested on a Peavey Valveking and the E646) or the S.A.C.-port for Engl-amps. Using the S.A.C.-port I can switch all features of the E646 with one stereo cable, which is pretty cool.

The programming of the Z11 is very easy and intuitive - activate the features and press the save-buttom, thats it.

The switching of the device is latency free if switched by hand, MIDI-Footswitch or most multi-effect Systems.
It didn't seem to perform well with the Boss GT-Series. I have checked switching with the GT6, GT8 and GT100, all introducing a slightly latency in the program change. The cause seems to be on Boss' side, since it does not appear on Line6 or tc.electronic multi-effects. Basically, the MIDI-PC-command seems to be send after the effect is changed in the device.

This should be kept in mind - maybe you have to buy a new multi-effect if you want to use the Z11.

To put it in short:
The Z11 is a robust MIDI-Switcher. It suits perfect with newer Engl-amps because of the S.A.C.-port. Be sure to try it with your multi-effect at first.

I use the Z11 to switch:
- the clean / saturated channel of the preamp (switch 1)
- Lo / Hi channel of the preamp (switch 2)
- the contour of the preamp (switch 3)
- the deep poweramp (switch 4)
So I still have switch 5 and 6 free if my config becomes more complex.

Being a novice in MIDI, I was worried about using the Z11. Finally, the grip is intuitive. I drive the Z11 and my multi-effect with a MIDI Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro.

Example of use :
If I want my preset 1 of the multi-effects with the "Lead" channel of the preamp:
At first I select on my pedal the preset number 1, which will call the sound number 1 of the multi.
Then I activate the button "SWITCH LOOP 1" (which I connected to the lead), then I press the "WRITE" button of the Z11.
So, as soon as I call the preset n ° 1 of the multi, the saturated channel will activate itself.

If I were to blame a few things:
- The power supplied is of poor quality, to be replaced.
- 48 EUR for the mounting plate in option it is just a big mashing of the mouth, at the price of the Z11 the plate should be provided !!

Service Thomann at the top, as usual!
