Hi there, I'm new to the HX Effects and I have an amp with 2 independent channels (/13 FTR37). I'd like to create an ABY box at the end of the signal flow so that I could toggle between channels or combine both. I started messing with creating a parallel path with a random effect to create a split A/B block, then I was able to assign a footswitch as a controller for A/B (FS5). Things start getting complicated for me when I try to assign another footswitch for the Y function, since it is not possible to assign multiple controllers for the same parameter. I'm thinking about assigning FS6 to turn the A/B block on/off, so that when it is off, it passes the signal to both paths. Would that work? Also, regarding the outputs, I have the mixer setting the B path output to Send12, so it doesnt blend the paths. Is there anyway to accomplish what I am trying to do in a more elegant way, not losing the FX Loops outs, just using regular outputs L+R to do this?
If you connect only the Left input, the signal is split to L+R stereo out (since L is the standard mono input). But shouldn't the Right in/out path be separate from the Left in/out path if both ins and both outs are connected? What I am trying to accomplish is this: a dual amp rig using an ABY to feed the M5 inputs, then the L & R outputs to 2 amps. GTR---->ABY---->M5----> 2 Amps [A --> Left in; B -->Right in / L out---> Amp 1, R out---> Amp 2] With both inputs connected, I expected the stereo outs to be 2 independent paths so I can toggle between amps, or blend both via the ABY. The Problem: I only see that behavior if the patch is turned off, defeating the purpose. It doesn't seem to matter if I send A, B, or A+B to the M5, both outputs active sending signal to both amps. Is this normal behavior, or a bug? Is there an update perhaps where this is possible? I am using the M5 primarily as a Tube Comp with the EX1 sweep set to playing level (heel) and lead boost (toe), so I could put the ABY after the M5 and run it in mono, but I'd really like to take advantage of the occasional Stereo FX when running dual Amps. If I can only get the L out to be independent of the R out...I'd be in Tone Heaven. Any Suggestions?
