  1. Instant commands is probably the way to go! but I'll have to try it when I buy it. Yeah switching the order could be fun, but I'm fortunately pretty satisfied with the order I have so it will work for me. :) Thanks for the help guys! This thread will be of great help when I get this stuff later!
  2. Yeah, let's hope they can add polyphony in the future! :) Yeah, Would be cool if I at least could change the program that way but it's just me wanting to be lazy haha! Sounds like the optimal setup for me! do you have to program CC messages to trigger pedals on/off or can you just use the learn function on the HX? Looks like I have to save up som cash to splurge on this! :)
  3. Thanks a lot for the replies guys! I have tried a lot of configurations before when it comes to order and what I've found that I like best is this: Guitar -> Whammypedal -> Fuzz -> Octaver oc3 -> Distortion pedal -> Front of amp Effects loop [ Delay -> Reverb] If I configure it like in this picture, is that correct for this? I looked it up and tried to make some sort of schematic I'd like in the picture. What is this talk about ungrounding the cables to get rid of noise? is that true for all amps' effects loops? I've read that the built in Pitch Wham isn't polyphonic and that is very important to me as I also use it for chords, some big some small. Have they updated it to be polyphonic yet? Would the HX FX be able to let's say do a timebased interval change in the pitches for digitech whammy /Pitch wham (for example Muse - Map of the problematique) through midi control? My Octaver oc3 pedal also supports some Polyphony and it overdrives beautifully when pressed. Does the Twin harmony support polyphony? I've heard good things about the Fuzz emulation on the HX! some sort of capacitor built-in that they then control. That's really cool man! I've found it difficult to search for a pedal loop switcher as they seem to be interchange the names switcher and loops! Add wanting midi control of the switching and it gets even more difficult!. Do you just need the Morningstar ML5 looper and control it with the HX effects? Let's say I use it in one of the send/returns of the HX. Can I then program patches/snapshots to control which pedal attached to the Morningstar ML5 looper is on/off? if so, that's something I will have to look into! I see it also has a Midi out, can I plug that into the Midi in of the Digitech Whammy and program the HX to send Midi triggering through the Morningstar ML5 looper to the Digitech whammy? I made another picture to explain how I'd like it.
  4. My Amp has an Fx Loop. This seems way out of my league knowledge-wise haha. I did some sketching. What I wanted was 2 different real pedal chains (into amp distortion) that I could switch between and then Have a send/return between the unit and the amps FX loop. and last take output into front of amp. This in order to skip out some of the pedal tapdance. But I guess you'd need 3 x Send/Return to do that and the HX FX only has two. The Helix seems to have 4 but it's a bit too expensive as I already have an amp. Is it not possible to put the Digitech whammy before the HXFX-unit and toggle it on/off with a midi command tied to a patch/snapshot?
  5. Thank you for the quick reply! Digitech whammy has a midi in so should be able to control through midi! I was prepared for some compromise ( getting all those effects will be worth it though). I was thinking if my idea in the picture is possible?
  6. Hi! I was thinking of buying a looper (switching between multiple pedals to avoid tapdancing) but came across the HX effects. This is my setup: Orange TH30 Polytuner Digitech Whammy Fuzz pedal Distortion pedal Octaver pedal Hall of fame reverb pedal (might get rid of this one if the HX reverbs are good) What I'm after is being able to control each pedal individually and create snapshots for turning on/off multiple pedals at once. I also want to be able to control the channel of the amp on the snapshots. Is this doable? what is the maximum amount of pedals I can plug into the unit? I'm really new to this whole thing so my knowledge is pretty basic, but I know you can do the 4 Cable method to be able to have HX reverb/delays after the amp distortion. Kind regards, Jeff
