    That's it???

    If you read this whole thread, you know that all of this has been discussed ad nauseum. This thread got really ugly. The prime movers have apologized. I hope that, rather than continuing to beat this dead horse, you'll take part in this "thread redirection": THANKS!

    That's it???

    Why is it that people can't post an opinion without insulting others? It appears that even if mod locks this thread, it's just going to pop up again. PLEASE people, try to post your opinions without attacking others in the community! Maybe, as a community, we should start a campaign of always responding to these kind of posts with a "Be Nice!" message. Of course, then we'll be attacked for being overly sensitive. Thread redirection: Anybody have any POSITIVE suggestions for how this community can deal with the problem of rampant rudeness? Or are we doomed to be no more than a reflection of the problems we're seeing in society as a whole? Someone remind me why I quit doing drugs?

    Footswitches for MIDI CC

    The best combination of price, programmability, and dependability, is going to be the FCB1010 with the added UNO chip and ControlCenter Editor. There are others, some more powerful, but for your stated needs, The FCB is more than enough. With the UNO mod and editor, you're looking at $200 NEW. They're almost always available used on eBay for less. Don't be put off by detractors who say that it's hard to program. With a basic understanding of MIDI, the UNO chip and the ControlCenter Editor it's a piece of cake. The biggest drawback to the FCB is size. the 2 expression pedals make it longer than the Helix, so if floorspace is limited that could be a problem. If the FCB doesn't get it for you, keep in mind while you're researching alternatives that any device without a SW editor is going to be a PITA.

    If you read through this whole thread, you know that it's gotten really ugly. While everything you said is true in my book, it's all been said here many times. As one of the primary movers in this thread, I'm trying to make peace with OP, and encouraging everyone to get out of attack mode and Give Peace a Chance. As an infamously villainous victim once said "Can't we all just get along?"

    code 8312 when importing patches

    I'm on 2.70, and I had no problem. All three files installed, separately AND all at once. Since 2.70 didn't add any amps, that should not matter. What system are you on (MAC,PC)? Are you using the version of HX EDIT that corresponds to your Helix FW (HX EDIT 2.60)? What DL method are you using? On PC: In Customtone, click DOWNLOAD. In File Dialog, select folder to save to. In HX EDIT, double click on the location where you want the tone. Select PRESETS, IMPORT. Navigate to the saved tone, select it, then click OPEN. If you're still having trouble, you may need to backup your presets and setlists, then do a system reset (go to SUPPORT for details on all the reset options).

    I disagree with Silverhead's suggestion that everybody just STFU. BUT I'm trying to make peace with OP. How about we all just exit attack mode and Give Peace a Chance?

    Sorry, I misunderstood. You're trying to DOWNLOAD from CUSTOMTONE. I'll need a couple of examples of tones that cause the problem.

    Can you use Split A/B for this...

    I do this with the 2204 and 2204 MOD. There are a number of ways to go about it, depending on your needs. Good: Assign Both Amps to a FS. Save with Amp A ON and Amp B OFF. Hitting the FS will toggle them. Limited control of other FX/Parameters. Better: Use a snapshot. Put both amps on the same path. In Snapshot 1 (clean) the first amp is ON and the second is OFF. Snapshot 2 (dirty) is the opposite. Better control of other FX/Parameters. Best: Use a snapshot. Amps on separate Paths. Assign the Split block's Route slider to Snapshots. Save CLEAN Snapshot with Amp A ON, Amp B OFF and Split set to 100% A. Save DIRTY Snapshot with Amp A OFF, Amp B ON, Split set to 100% B. Total control of FX/Parameters for each Amp.

    code 8312 when importing patches

    IIRC, this means that you have a corrupted preset. If you saved the individual presets in your setlists (this is one reason why that's a good idea), you can try importing them 10 at a time till you narrow it down to the bad one, then delete it and continue.

    That's it???

    Since the first ageist insult was aimed at me (the millennial comment), I'd like to point out that I DROVE to the FIRST Woodstock. That "My Generation" spent a great deal of time demonizing the OLDER generation (don't trust anyone over 30), and that our ideals were eventually betrayed by the very people we marched with. "Their beards have all grown longer now." No generation has a monopoly on ignorance. When I identified myself as a snowflake, THAT was a joke. I'm sure that no actual snowflakes were offended. When OP identified other posters as fascists, brown nosers and nancys, those were insults. Vague regrets are meaningless. Sincere apologies are always considered. My first post in this thread was intended as good natured chiding. If OP was offended, I sincerely apologize. Perhaps we're both guilty as to where this thread has gone. NOTE TO MOD: This forum REALLY NEEDS EMOTICONS! :-)

    I know, I said I was "outta here". But this thread is like a trainwreck, I just can't look away! You've made it abundantly clear that you don't care about anybody's needs but your own, that everyone else's opinions are BS, that we're all a bunch of fascists and fanboys, and that you couldn't care less about our feelings. Is it really any wonder that most of our reactions are negative? I get it. You're not a very nice person. PLEASE GO AWAY! Sincerely, Fascist snowflake fanboy

    It's all been said before! OP's thread from 2016: Where are the amps?!? - aka, beating a dead horse And the horse is still dead. Doubling down on my first post in this thread. I'm outta here! Sincerely, Proud childish, fascist Fanboy

    Gotcha! Hope you go through with getting an LT. There's a learning curve, for sure, and if you need help or advice, there are many here who'll be happy to step up. And don't forget TGP. Good Luck!
