    Volume resets to on when switching presets.

    In the global settings, there are options for each expression pedal to save the state per preset, per snapshot, or globally. Setting to global should do what you want
  2. If you don't need any pre-amp effects from the helix, then the entire helix should go in the effects loop. Plug your guitar to the amp input, fx loop send to helix input, and helix output to fx loop return.

    Wah Sounds Bad

    I had seen a case before where someone had inadvertently assigned the IR bypass to the toe switch, so when the wah came on the IR turned off. Not saying that's the issue here, but it's possible that more parameters are getting changed than you expect

    Importing into Helix LT Problems

    You most likely need to update your firmware. Depending on the amps that are used in the patches you downloaded, you'll need to be on at least FW 2.53

    Help Impulse responses onto Helix HX

    All you select when you add the ir block is the number of samples. Once the block is added, you can pick which specific ir slot you want to use.

    You can do this, but you have to assign those parameters to the snapshots controller. Assuming you are on floor or rack, you can do that by pressing down on the parameter knob as you turn. That will put the value in brackets and you'll be able to change them between snapshots

    Recorded live with Helix, FW 2.50

    OK... This is awesome

    Using the Expression Pedal to Switch Between Snapshots?

    You can set this up, but it requires diving into midi controls a little bit. If you plug a midi cable from the Helix's midi out into the midi in, then you can make the Helix sent midi commands to itself and control some parameters that way. Setting the expression pedal to control midi CC #69 and going from values 0-7 would scroll through the snapshots with the expression pedal. I'm not really doing it with the expression pedal, but I'm doing this midi stuff so I can assign a couple of snapshots to stomp switches and stay in 10-stomp mode.

    Digitech Drop signal placement

    It should certainly be safe. I've got an EHX Pitch Fork in that same spot and it works great.

    HX Effects Midi Control?

    It's in the manual, but the stuff about sending Midi is under the "Command Center" section and not in the midi section. Looks like it will do what you are looking for.

    Running Helix between power amp and cab.

    Do not do this.

    Snapshot-independent effects?

    I have used a latching amp footswitch for exactly this purpose. It may not work with every switch, but the idea definitely works.

    4 Cable Method/FX Loop

    Ok, sounds like a series loop then. I agree with Cody_Smith - it would help to see a picture of a preset you're using

    4 Cable Method/FX Loop

    assuming all the routing is correct, it sounds like this could be a parallel effects loop. Does your amp have a mix control for the loop or anything?
