Is there any easier way to switch between presets on the HD500X? Instead of how I do it now, where I select presets by first hitting one of the arrow switches to get to the bank selector, where I can see the 4 presets in that current bank and my current preset flashing and then pressing A B C or D to change to one of the others. What I'd like to do instead, is be able to change with only one footswitch press. Is there some way I can permanetly remain on this bank selector screen, or can I map the A B C D footswitches to other completely different presets, instead of toggling effects? I used to have an HD400 and I believe it was possible to change presets by just hitting A B C or D, but it also had less footswitches able to be assigned to effects, unless I am remembering it incorrectly. I use the 4 cable method so I can use my head's distortion, and the way I change from distorted to clean right now for songs is first remember to 'prime' the POD by pressing one of the arrow switches, and then at the pressing my amp's footswitch to go to clean while simultaneously pressing the A B C or D footswitches on the POD to change patches. Then to go back to distortion I have to again remember to 'prime' the POD, then simultaneously press the POD and my amp's footswitch. Pressing two switches at once is not a problem, but that first step of getting to the bank selector screen is a hassle, I'd like to be able to cut that out. Any ideas would be appreciated.
