My blackstar stock channel switching pedal is not working while using hx effects. I cannot switch to channel two. It's as if channel two is bypassed. The pedal turns red as does the channel two light but channel two seems to be disabled. If I plug my guitar directly into my amp and disconnect the hx effects entirely channel two works again, but once I reconnect the hx effects the stock pedal can only be used to turn on and off reverb and channel switching is disabled. I'm currently using the 4 cable method.
Ok - I just got my HD500x and when plugged into Logic Pro X it's freaking fantastic - within an hour of receiving it I had some awesome tones dialed-in! My questions are related to connecting the 500X to my Blackstar Venue Series amp via the 4 cable method and using the HD500x as a stomp-box board for mostly modulation and delay - no amp models (all the gain coming from my amp). So far I have these 3 questions/observations: Since I'm using it for effects and not amp models, do I need to add any type of amp, pre-amp or other component in the patch? When it's connected, but nothing enabled in my patch, my amp sounds very thin and weak on either of the gain channels. I made a patch with just a noise-gate, fx-loop, digitial delay & tri-chorus. There is no audible difference with the delay before the loop or after, so I must be doing something wrong... I have the output set to Combo Front. Please note - I've been using a M13 in the 4 cable method for 2 years, so I have an understanding of how the setup works. Any input from someone who has actually run their rig like this would be very much appreciated!!
