  1. From the manual: 12. EXP 1/2, FS 7/8 Connect an expression pedal here to adjust a wide vari- ety of parameters.* With a Y-cable (tip-ring-sleeve 1/4" jack, split to two tip-sleeve 1/4" jacks), two expression pedals can be connected. Alternatively, you can add one (or with a Y-cable, two) external footswitches to access additional stomps, presets, snapshots, etc. (FS7=tip, FS8=ring). To set this jack’s function(s), see page 57. By default, this jack is set to accommodate a Mission SP1-L6H Line 6 Expression Pedal, which has a toe switch that toggles between EXP 1 (Wah/Pitch or Poly Wham) and EXP 2 (Volume/Pan). For external footswitches, the momentary (unlatched) type should be used. *NOTE: It is recommended to connect to this EXP1/2, FS 7/8 input while the device is powered off to avoid toggling the current FS 7/8 setting.
  2. Sorry for any confusion. I have edited the article to clarify the points you raise as well as the misinformation about the Helix LT, mentioned by @bradfordlumley I also made a couple of other edits to make a few steps clearer. To clarify your two points of confusion: My SP1-L6H pedal was manufactured in 2016 and the output jacks are individual components. For your model with the output jacks mounted to a printed circuit board with the ribbon cable, you may have to use an ohm meter or continuity tester to ID the tip and sleeve wires of the output jacks. I have added verbiage to indicate Tip and Sleeve. Since this is a Push-Push switch, the references above to N.O. and N.C. are not applicable, the point of using those designations was to indicate connections to the switched side of the switch and not to use the common side of the switch. I hope that helps.
  3. Perfect. Thanks. It would be cool if there was a way to page over to engage or bypass effects that don't appear on the first page? Would anyone find that useful? Does anyone know if that idea is already on Ideascale? Thanks again.
  4. I couldn't find a like question or answer so here goes. This is specific to HX Effects. I have seven effects blocks in use, including an effects loop and two overdrives. In stomp view I can see the effects loop and one overdrive. If I hold the Mode switch down to see “More", I can see the other OD on the second page. How do I swap or move the FX Loop to the second page and the OD to the first page?
  5. Nah, not at all. Just a simple oversight. We all do it. Thanks for letting us know you got it sorted out.
  6. Maybe something going on with channel assignment. The JVM might have to re-learn the assignments. Did you start from scratch after the update? My best guess.
  7. I'm not an Helix LT user but here goes. From the Manual: EXP PEDAL 2/EXT AMP An additional expression pedal can be connected to Helix LT and assigned to adjust a wide variety of parameters. See "Quick Controller Assign" Alternatively, this jack can be connected to your traditional guitar amp to switch its channels or turn its reverb on and off. Use a TRS cable for dual operation (1=tip, 2=ring). To set this jack's function, see "Global Settings > Preferences" It only has one jack, but that one jack has a dual function. You could use a TRS to two TS 'Y' adapter and use the Expression input on one and the switch input on the other. In that scenario, you would not need to modify the Line 6/Mission Exp pedal and can use it right out of the box.
  8. I'm not an HX Effects user, but the same principles still apply. From the HX Effects manual: Two expression pedals can be connected to the HX Effects device and assigned to adjust a wide variety of parameters. The modified exp pedal can be used to control either of those, just as in all of the examples above. I would not expect to see any specific "toe switch functionality" added to HX Effects or any other unit that does not already have that functionality. Even it it was, the modified toe switch, with the added resistors, would likely not work. BUT, IF that functionality was added, the unmodified pedal would work just as it does with the Helix Rack. The modified toe switch mimics an expression pedal in a cocked, fixed position. That position being determined/represented by the value of the fixed resistors that are installed with the mod.
  9. They are the exact same pedal. One has the switch, the other doesn't. The one with the switch has two jacks, one for exp and one for the switch. Get the one with the switch. If you find you can use it (now or later) great, if you can't, no loss. Last I looked (not lately) they were the same price.
  10. I updated to 1.06 from 1.05 and bricked my G10. It's an original G10, not the S. Same symptoms and indicators as everyone else with the Rx pulsing red. I reflashed the Rx and Tx several times to no avail. I even downgraded back to v 1.05 with no luck. Yes, you can downgrade to the older firmware/software if you have the files. I've always downloaded and saved all update files so I still have v 1.05 After it initially bricked, I reflashed it four or five times and nothing changed. I did both the Tx and Rx multiple times. Here is where it gets a little weird. I had unplugged the Rx power and had the Tx laying in the desk. Then, without thinking I plugged the Rx back into power with the Tx still laying on the desk. Whoa, now I see the Rx pulsing white. I then plugged the Tx into the Rx and now it is working fine. WTF??? I can not comment on battery life or short range dropouts at this time.
  11. I can't find any before pics but the toe switch is a SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) momentary contact (commonly referred to as "non-latching") switch wired to the one (TS) jack for the toe switch output.
  12. Yes, this is easily done. You can use Exp 2 and 3 for the Mission pedal and have Exp 1 for whatever you want.
  13. Typically the center terminal is C and the two outside terminals are NO and NC. You can check it with an ohmmeter or continuity tester. You are just using one half of the switch.
  14. The DPDT switch you have is fine. You will only need to use one side. The C common, the NC normally closed and NO normally open terminals will be identified on the switch.
