    Expression Pedal for HX Stomp

    I'm using the cheap and cheerful M-audio expression pedal: https://m-audio.com/products/view/ex-p Works well, but I'm not a heavy user of the expression pedal so can't attest to it's durability.
  2. Yep, AFAIK with MIDI there is no increment / decrement program change; external MIDI footswitches / controllers that allow this keep track of what program you have selected, and in response to scrolling up or down on the *pedal* send the adjusted program number to the Stomp.

    Artist Created Patches

    Definitely check out the guy suggested by arislaf above. Here's a direct link to the Youtube videos demonstrating Glenn's patches: https://www.youtube.com/user/extremevideopro/videos Gilmour patch demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgRDtXiuHJk There are are other people doing this too, Google brings forth a bunch of results. I think you'll be pretty pleased with your purchase.

    HX Stomp - Volume Knob does not alter Volume on Output L/R

    I think page 41 of the manual is what you are after. Check Global Settings -> Ins/Outs -> page 3, knob 2: ---- Determines which signal(s) are heard from the Phones output. Normally you would set this to "Main L/R." 2 Volume Controls Determines whether the top panel VOLUME knob controls both the 1/4" main output and headphone output ("Main+HP") or just the headphone output ("Phones"). When set to "Phones" the 1/4" main outputs remain at unity gain.

    Helix vs AXFX 3, seriously...

    It's 'you're'. We're native English speakers, right? So try and make an effort, otherwise if you can't be bothered using correct grammar and spelling then why should I bother listening to what you have to say? My basses are of standard size. They are likely both longer and heavier, or 'bigger' if you will, than your guitars. Don't let this threaten or worry you, though. Size doesn't matter. ;)

    Helix vs AXFX 3, seriously...

    I'm sure that's a big relief for everyone. I use to make and sell analog FX pedals as a second living, and I recognise in how and what you communicate the kind of customer I would be glad not to have had. It seems to me as though you are projecting your own insecurity about your gear unnecessarily here. FWIW, and as a bass player, I sold off all my analog pedals and replaced them with a Helix Stomp. Amazing piece of engineering, and a delight to use with utterly musical tone. The community around the Helix system and interaction with Line 6 support are a bonus delight.

    HX Stomp and midi controller

    Yes, all are editable; there is none of this "some presets are hard-coded, some are user-configurable' kind of situation. I'm 'only' a bass player, but the HX Stomp has been a game-changer for me; I got rid of all my separate pedals and couldn't be happier. A well-designed and great sounding bit of gear.

    HX Stomp and midi controller

    Doesn't "Example D" in that manual say: "Recalling a preset in PRESET mode, Vector generates thru the MIDI OUT, on the midi channel 1, the Program Change with the same number shown by the display. All the 28 Program Change can be used to control other midi units." ? So you could have access to 28 presets on the Stomp, at least. Or perhaps you are looking for a mapping function where (say) PC 1 corresponds to patch 17 on the Stomp? AFAIK that isn't possible.

    HX Stomp - Any Chance of a Future Native Discount?

    I can also confirm that as a registered HX Stomp owner I don't seem to be able to actually get the discount claimed on the promos page. At US99 this would be an insta-buy for me, even though I'm only an occasional DAW user.

    Sans Amp for bass?

    The SVT amp / pre models come close to a Sansamp pedal IMO, so close I would rather Line 6 invested their resources on other bass-specific FX / drives.
