  1. Go to footswitch mode (page) 2 where it says "Preset ▼", "Preset ▲" and "Tap/Tuner". Press and hold FS1 and FS2 until it changes from "Preset" to "Snapshot". Voilà.
  2. … speaking of which, there's a "bug" in the manual: Should read: "eight blocks"
  3. On the Stomp, it's the "Edit View": https://line6.com/data/6/0a020a4112bbf5fb6a519e8b18/application/pdf/HX Stomp 3.0 Owner's Manual - Rev C - English .pdf > page 13
  4. Interestingly, since there was the forum downtime a couple of days ago, the login on my laptop remains solid, and I haven't been logged out ever since. (MacOS El Capitan, Firefox 78.5esr with a plethora of mean and nasty add-ons to block every possible ad, tracker and unwanted cookie that there is, and connecting via VPN that blocks even more of that evil stuff.) On the other hand, I'm still being logged out every few "unread posts" on the iPhone, iOS 14.2, Firefox browser. My guess is that it has something to do with the forum software setup here. The same forum software is also used for example on https://forum.affinity.serif.com (Affinity graphic design software) where I don't experience any of the logout issues like here.
  5. I find it annoying as well, but according to Line 6 support, this is supposed to be a "feature", not a bug.*) The touch sensitivity preference is apparently only meant for the Edit mode. So making this preference setting truly global should be likely filed as a feature request. *) One of the footswitches on my new HX Stomp was "touch-dead". Eventually I had it fixed on warranty.
  6. If you put an EQ right before the amp block, you can use it to drive or "undrive" the amp by boosting or attenuating specific frequency bands. If you put it after the amp, you can round up the overall sound in a similar way a cab or an IR block does. You can e.g. put an EQ and a delay block on a parallel path, thus affecting just the wet sound of the delay, leaving the dry path as is; useful particularly for delays that don't have a built in EQ. On the other hand, if you put an EQ as your first block in the chain, you are shaping the dry sound of your instrument first, before it's being processed any further. That's e.g. where you would usually put the Acoustic Sim block – which is at its core also an EQ heavily attenuating mids and boosting highs and lows.
  7. Stomp manual, page 60: For what it's worth, I'm using Disaster Area DMC.micro with my Stomp: CC# 69, values 8 & 9. That means – since the DMC.micro has just two footswitches and is thus extremely compact, which is why I bought it – I can toggle snapshots up and down, i.e. with just two switches I have a one-click access to all three snapshots.
  8. For toggling several blocks at once you may likely want to use the built in switches in the Stomp instead, and then use the MIDI controller for anything else.
  9. I vaguely recall reading similar reports this week: https://line6.com/support/search/?q="rebuilding Preset"&type=forums_topic&nodes=86&search_and_or=or&sortby=relevancy

  11. I want my $20. :D Frankly though, it was primarily because I noticed that the HX Edit release notes don't list Mac OS El Capitan in the "Compatible OS" section anymore. So I wanted to make sure that it still works before I would have rebooted using the Mojave partition. For the record: HX Edit 3.0 runs fine on El Capitan. And even more: I can now log in again to my Line 6 account!
  12. ^ This. Apparently there's still a copy of HX Edit 2.92.dmg either in your ~/Downloads folder, or in a Firefox cache. Get https://apps.tempel.org/FindAnyFile and search the complete hard drive for "HX Edit" incl. invisible items.
  13. I don't see the point. If you need these pseudo-analog effects to enhance your recordings, add them in your DAW as plugins when mixing. There's a plethora of options available, from absolutely free up to insanely overpriced.
  14. Before I bought the Stomp in July, I was still using a Boss SE-50 that I bought used back in 1992. It was even good enough for rehearsals, plugging it directly into the PA, instead of having to bring the Fender Blues Deluxe with me every time. So that one was in use for 28 years. Heck, my Blues Deluxe is now also 26 years old. In 28 years, I'll be 81. The Stomp may still be working by then. Possibly even the SE-50. Not so sure about myself though, haha… I'll keep the Fender amp for the time being. I also play bass, so I have a small and a mid-size bass combo as well. I'm not much into pedals though. Recently I've been using my decades old Boss CS-3 and TW-1 for guitar, also OC-2 and TW-1 for bass. If any. But in fact, all I've used since July was just the Stomp, be it at home, in rehearsal rooms with bands, and on one occassion (uh, there weren't many this year) also live. Straight to the desk or into any random power amp or amplified speaker that there is. It just works…
