    Naming Stomp Snapshots

    Perhaps I'm not reading this correctly, but my understanding about the issue is that you copy (or swap) unnamed snapshots which default to "Snapshot 1" and "Snapshot 2", you get two instances of it saying "Snapshot 2" (in a copy scenario). It makes sense. You copied it and this occurs for me all the time. Right click the snapshot in the editor and rename it anything you want. Right click it again and pick your ring color.

    Close. You don't have to save it, you just have to select Snapshot 1 before going to your next preset.
  4. The pedal is RIDICULOUS hard to trigger by pressing down. It's by design. I remember the same thing from my HD500. If or when you have the resources, buy one or two ME expression pedals. I actually run my signal through a Dunlop volume pedal at the front of the HF (easy hack to balance unexpected signal outputs on the fly in an emergency situation). I use the two externals for virtually all of my expression parameters and only use the onboard pedal when needed. The 'green' expression pedal (I'm color blind and that sucker looks blue to me) is usually assigned to mix parameters for pitch fx, etc. The red one is for different gains, sweeps, etc. The onboard pedal is strictly wah. All are triggered by snapshots. It hasn't failed me yet.

    Um...try to avoid run-on sentences.

    2.8 Windows 7 Fail

    I know you said that you followed it to the letter, but it has to be asked: Did you use the latest version of the updater? You said you tried reinstalling HX Edit several times, but everything has to be off, disconnected, placed in another room so you're not tempted, and started from scratch. All other apps need to be closed. Perhaps try a clean uninstall of the editor from whatever OS you use, make sure nothing else is open, download the editor, take the box offline, and try installing it that way. The boot failure is a temporary hiccup which you just click "OK" it goes away, so hopefully you didn't disconnect while that occurred. If you did, you might have corrupted your download and the rebuild.

    Midi Triggering your DAW from the Helix

    I'm pretty excited about the hotkey functions. Once I've had a chance to play around with it I'm looking forward to using it with GP7.
  9. Haven't played through it yet, but update went without a hitch. Didn't even have to reload presets or setlists. I find that the snark provided in L6T's and DI's instructions and advice keep me on task and following instructions.

    Password help!

    In this age of digital tomfukery I've run across this issue. I tend to go with rd2rk's comment and the fastest way I've learned to check syntax/case issues with UN and PW is to copy them from my PW list and paste them in to appropriate fields.

    Helix Firmware 2.80

    Ridiculous. Do friends keep each other in check? Sure...sometimes. But this has not been a friendly exchange. It has been a flame war. You use references to women and same sex orientation in context of an insult. In doing so, you are most certainly portraying yourself as both homophobic and a misogynist. Otherwise you wouldn't use those terms in the context within which you apply them. To deny that context is passive/aggressive. Even the simple references of '#metoo' and 'sad excuses for men' underscores this behavior. Are you more comfortable if labeled a misanthrope? Clearly you're reveling in this attention. Your insertion of 'on topic' statements within your replies reads as an afterthought. When you started your posts within this thread it was an attempt to limit others behavior. That's a lollipop move in any situation when addressing peers. Then you got all po'd because you experienced push back from people. Then came the 'sweetheart', 'I love you', etc. At that point you were soliciting replies. What's your goal here? You aren't able to achieve keeping a thread on topic and you will never be a moderator. Hopefully you understand that by now. Still, what is it? A moral victory? Moral victories mean 5hit in the real world and are typically pursued by the insecure. So what is it?

    I think there’s enough True Excitement regarding updates and firmware releases already.
