  1. Thank you guys for the suggestions I will try some of these tonight and see what I come up with.
  2. Hi all New owner of a HELIX floor unit here. I have been enjoying the unit for a few weeks now and have a few questions as I am about to start dabbling in snapshots. so as of now I have my unit set up like I did with my old hd500x. rhythm channel on one pre set high gain on another clean and lead etc etc etc. This use to work and I had gotten use to the slight delay in changing presets, with this floor unit its a bit more complicated for my preset switching. I need the ability to switch on and off effects and switch in-between presets during a song and I know snapshots can do this in a different manner then just switching a channel, I know it can activate and de activate amps and peddles etc. what I am trying to understand is this. If I want a rhythm clean and lead channel lets say, I understand that I have to make 3 snapshots and make sure all the effects and amps will fit in 1 preset due to dsp, what I don't understand is how I can switch the snapshots. like can I use the bottom 3 buttons to the right of the bank up bank down buttons for snapshot 1 2 and 3 and the rest for stomps? if so do I have the ability use 2 buttons one for clean and one for lead, and when I select the clean snapshot the foot controller that it was assigned to if pressed again could switch to my rhythm? I go to preset 1 all my snapshots are there. its already set to snapshot one (rhythm) I have all my stomp boxes set to other foot controllers other then the 2 that would switch to snapshot 2 and snapshot 3. lets say I need to go to lead (snapshot3) I press the button the lead snapshot is loaded but that button if pressed again will take me back to snapshot 1? is this possible?
  3. Yes, I am aware that I can use the expression pedal to change these parameters, but I do use the wah and volume control with the expression pedal. In my situation it was just more practical to set up two amps and switch between them. Thank you for the input though. I would also like to note that on the hd500x itself when you turn off an amp (using two amps) you can highlight the amp that is off and use the channel volume knob to change the bypass volume.
  4. I think I found what I am looking for. On the POD HD500x edit pilot's guide (rev b) on page 21 it shows when an amp is bypassed the channel volume turns in to bypass volume.
  5. I haven't had a chance to go through the settings yet, but I was wondering if you could point me in a direction to one of the manuals? ive been poring over the advanced users guide with out any luck.
  6. thanks, I check that out when I get home. Post my update later. cheers, shawn
  7. Hey guys new to the forum here hoping you can help out. I have a weird situation with my pod hd500x that has me stumped. I have a patch set up with 2 of the same amp(one top of chain and one directly below it). What I have done is set it to where only one amp is active at a time with the press of a button. (what this is accomplishing for me is adjusting a preset gain on the amp in question by actually switching to a different amp) The problem I am having is once I switch one amp off I get the "dry" bleed through in my live mix. any ideas?? I have a gig this weekend and I would like to figure this out. cheers, shawn
