  1. I thought it´s a bug. But now I wonder why it stayed after the reset/restore. I'll tell you when I'm smarter.
  2. Hello, my HX Stomp shows a strange behavior sometimes. Suddenly ALL presets/snapshots (clean and crunch) have too much gain/saturation in a muddy way. But it doesn´t sound like a broken cable or hardware failure. Just like dialed in too much gain. It happend several times and every time when i tweaked something in HX Edit. One time i could "reset" it with switching the unit off and on. Another time with a backup restore. This time both didn´t help to get back to a "normal sound state". I listen to Headphones connected to the HX Stomp, so no extern Hardware involved. Has anyone experienced this too? I guess/hope this phenomenon is gone tomorrow. It´s unpredictable and i can´t identify a cause for this. My HX Stomp is not reliable with that strange behavior. Thank you
  3. I also have had the Mimiq and can confirm OmniFaces opinion. No need to buy a Mimiq when you can use the Double Take. To those who have more experience with the Double Take: I am unsure which Settings I have to choose to get a simple "double take". Whats Sensitivity? I only hear that the wet signal flips around more in the stereo panorama. Should i choose MONO as source, or LEFT? (Mono sound right for me) My Guitar is in the L/MONO input. What are your dry and wet level settings? Do i imagine that the wet signal is lower by equal settings? Please have a look at my double take settings. This is what sound best to me with headphones. I haven´t testet it in rehearsal with pa so far. Thank you! Complement: I ´ve found theese useful explanations for the double take parameters. My questions are answered. Doubles The main "Doubles" knob controls the number of double tracks into the mix from one to four generated voices, and in the stereo versions, the dry signal is assigned to a specified pan location. (Dry signal is underlined) 1 = Left and Right 2 = Left, Center, Right 3 = Left, Left, Right, Right 4 = Left, Left, Center, Right, Right Note: as each extra voice is added, there is a post-effect level compensation such that the overall dB of the remains about uniform. You can make up this change with the two output knobs if you want the same level hitting whatever you send the doubled tracks in to. Also since these are hard pans, you an also use the "stereo width" block to control how wide this effect is in the stereo field. Slop The Slop knob controls the amount of the slight variations in timing and pitch you would hear from each of the doubled voices. The variations are what we like to call "Defined Randomness" as this amount and timing is directly coupled with the dynamics of the original part. This knob controls the heart of this effect, as it will define the voices from tight and refined at low settings and all the way to(too?) wild and dynamic at max. With this knob you can set such that a softer touch there isn't much change to the original performance, but the harder you dig in, the more the doubled voices' strings stretch, slap around, and become widely de-correlated. Sensitivity This knob controls the sensitivity of the slop feature. The lower this parameter is set there will be less dynamic behavior from the voices. This can be viewed more or less like a threshold or input gain of a compressor, but specifically for the slop's detection algorithm. Source (Stereo only) The Double take can have a true stereo path. This parameter determines how the input signal is processed by the effect. Mono: Input will be summed to mono then processed by the Double Take True Stereo: Each side will be sent as a true stereo path, and each extra voice will be sent to the side of the source pan. Left Only: Only the left input will be sent into the Double Take Right Only: Only the right input will be sent into the Double Take Dry and Wet Levels Instead of a This controls the level of the original dry signal as it passes through the effect. Note the Dry Level Location above. Note: In "True Stereo" mode, the dry signal for the right will only be used for the doubles and will not pass through the effect. In "Right Only" mode, the Right channel will be sent to the left or center according to the Doubles parameter.
  4. Hello guys, I was given so many usefull things here that I like to give something back. For better handling in the heat of battle I wanted to have the right/left switchbutton of my HX-Stomp a bit higher to avoid switching the middle one by accident. I found theese stainless steel curtain rod endcaps: https://www.amazon.de/Endkappe-leicht-gewölbt-10mm-Kleben/dp/B01MDQYGG4/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me= They also are available with a flat top: https://www.amazon.de/Endkappe-flach-10mm-Stab-Kleben/dp/B01MG5256O/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me= Have a look at the attached pictures! Inner diameter: a bit wider than 10mm. Inner height: 10mm Height of four washers: 4mm Remaining height inside (corresponds line six switchbutton-head height): 6mm Building instructions: Inside theese caps I superglued four washers (all at once an quickliy to get a defined height) Let dry! To get the inner diameter of the cap a bit narrower put some superglue on the inner surface. Let dry! Put the caps on the switches. They fit so tight that you shouldn´t get them off unintentionally. Possibly scratch some glue off to make it fit. If needed you can remove the caps without a trace. This works fine for me and looks great and decent. For the big Brothers of HX-Stomp this could be a cheap second-switch-row solution. Cheers!
  5. Alright, thanks for the enlightenment. So I let myself be surprised for coming things :-)
  6. Thanks for asking. Some old Midi Footswitches had a "sidekick" option. This was a momentary switch and perfect to assign a lead-tone to. Perfect for playing short lead parts without the need of stepping on the "rythm" switch again. Isn´t exactly this possible in stomp mode with the feature to get to another preset afterwards than you came from before? Perhaps only the big Helix brothers can do this. But I need Snapshot mode and I have a HX stomp. That's the background of my question.
  7. Hello, is momentary switching in snapshot mode possible? Greets
  8. The chemical structure of DEHP causes cancer. But to do so, you need to dissolve and eat the casing. So just don´t do this. You won´t harm your body by just touching it. DEHP is an ordinary ingredient of plastic.
  9. So I checked out: The two mono signals L and R are each identical with the "mono sum from stereo" as far as i could hear with my AKG Studioheadphones. I really listend back and forth...imagination can be a thing after a while but then I quit and judged it for good. Switched DELAY-->REVERB to REVERB-->DELAY The sound was different, somehow more unpleasant to my ears. I kept DELAY-->REVERB. So I am done with this, get out of the rabbithole and played guitar again. I also played through a rehearsal room pa yesterday and what can I say? I am happy! It was so perfect in a band context. Good sound with this tiny thing. I love my HX Stomp :-) Thank you, guys!!!
  10. This is what I like to do: Split to Path A and B right after Input. Path A: Amp/Cab+FX ---> Main out L out to FOH ---> Main out R out to IEM Path B: Preamp+FX ---> FX-Send (L, mono) to Guitar Amp FX-Return, yes here stereo is collapsed. I guess I really should find a equivalent mono reverb to replace the legacy room stereo. Any suggestions? I will also check - how different the two mono signals are. Perhaps good to go... - Switch the positions of delay and reverb, to get mono again. But i guess it will get washed-out with REVERB (Stereo) --> DELAY (mono).
  11. With using a Legacy Room Reverb at the end of my signal chain I am forced to stereo although I would rather have mono. Or wouldn´t you mind having reverb with only a R and L portion for each of its own mono main out? To put an EQ at the end for summing to mono is a great idea. Unfortunately there are already 6 blocks in my "snapshot-signal-chain". But I could build different presets that contain less blocks and throw in the EQ...and sacrifice gapless switching. A mono reverb would also be the solution but i didn´t find one as good as the Legacy.
  12. Hello, as described in the Manual the HX Stomps Main Outs send two mono signals (with L and R Portion --> Stereo when both are in use) OR one mono Signal (L/mono: Stereo summed to mono). Is it possible to send TWO EQUAL MONO SIGNALS (each summed from Stereo to mono) out of the main Outs? (To FOH and IEM Mixer). The FX Send is already used for feeding an Amplifier. Greetings
  13. I had problems with different parameter settings for snapshots in the editor. Just press "Alt + left mouseclick" on the parameters value in the editor and it turns from red to [white]. Now you can make changes for each snapshot independently. Save the preset. Done. Didn´t find this in the manual (but could have overseen it).
  14. Hi there, i read at least all that i could find about IEM (bandmix, click, playback) on stage/rehearsal with sending my guitar signal (stereo) to FOH/rehearsal-mixer. There also were nice solutions without the need of an extra block. But all this solutions are using the FX Send and/or Return. In my setup I like to use the FX Send/Return for a TC electronics Mimiq (stereo doubler). So, has anyone an idea how to IEM/FOH without using an extra block and without sacrificing the Fx Send/Return? I guess it´s not possible, but who nows...perhaps someone has food for thought. Greetings
  15. @rd2rk: Thanks, so I will do! @brue58ski: Interesting. So not all hope is lost. (For me)this topic can be closed here.
  16. Hello, is there already a wishlist in the forum? I found nothing. Dear Line 6, for HX Stomp, please give us: - 5 Snapshots (2 more), that we could assign to FS 1,2,3 and external 4,5. - 8 Blocks (2 more), for less limitation Apart from that, thanks for this fantastic product :-) Grüße aus Berlin
