I've been using my M13 for a couple months now and generally love it. But I cannot figure out how to get a volume boost for a solo without using an overdrive or distortion effect. Often I want to do a clean solo, perhaps with just some delay or phaser. But those types of effects don't have a gain or output level parameter that I can adjust to boost my signal loud enough for a solo. Am I missing something? Is there some type of "transparent" effect that has an output level parameter I can use for a "clean boost"? Is there some overall setting/preference I should be tweaking? I don't have a volume pedal and I don't want to be dependent on an expression pedal for this. I want to be able to hit one foot switch and not have to do the pedal dance. I run a mono set up, simple input/output with a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV. Thanks for the help and suggestions.
Guys- I have filed the following firmware update wishes within line6.IdeaScale.com In case you are looking for these kind of improvements, too, I'll be glad, if you could vote for it . THANKS! Firehawk FX: Add Boost Functionality 'Switch on/off Solo Boost' 1. Generally Change Preset Indicator LED on Floorboard Firmware from Bright Red into now Dimmed Red 2. Assign a boost level +xx dB within the Firehawk App whilst 'Boosted', also apply Default Bost = on/off whilst Preset is being selected 3. Whilst Preset is selected tap on the already selected FX-Switch for this Patch again (twice quickly). This will both enable the Boost and change the colour of the FX switch into Bright Red 4. Switch Boost off whilst tapping again on the selected Preset FX-Switch Firehawk FX: Add Alternate Preset Mode Functionality 1. Generally Change Preset Indicator LED on Floorboard Firmware from Bright Red into now Dimmed Red 2. Assign an alternate / modified Preset with some FX blocks defined on/off as customized in the Firehawk App 3. Whilst Preset is selected tap (hold for 2 seconds) on the already selected FX-Switch for this Patch again. This will both enable the Alternate Preset Mode (hold for 2 seconds again) and change the colour of the FX switch into Bright Yellow (OR start flashing) 4. Switch Alternate Preset Mode off whilst tapping again on the selected Preset FX-Switch Firehawk FX: Add Smart Preset-Change Mode Functionality 1. Default Preset Change mode is 'Hard Change-over' (as it works today) 2. Assign an alternate Smart Preset Change mode in the Firehawk App,. This generally applies to the Floorboard functionality. Within the Smart Preset Change Over Mode, the user should be able to define a fade-out time of the previously selected preset, once a new preset had already been selected. This will help to have a smoother switch from one preset to the next, i.e. delays of the former preset used will not be just hard cut-off... 3. Whilst Alternate Preset Change mode is selected the Bank-up and Bank-down FX-switch LED's (if there are any..) will turn into dimmed grey (from being off in the default setting) Firehawk FX: Global Looper Mode Functionality
