I noticed yesterday that Enter Sandman uses FS2 as a multi. What the multi does is not only turn off and on effects, it also changes amps. And while it is turning on certain effects, it is turning off others and vice versa. E.G., FS2 multi off Reverb on Chorus on Screamer dist off Noise gate off Studio EQ off Treadplate amp off Blackface amp on FS2 multi on Reverb off Chorus off Screamer dist on Noise gate on Studio EQ on Treadplate amp on Blackface amp off That is a pretty powerful one button push. You have to have your computer HD editor software connected to figure these things out. Then you can start figuring out what the originator of the patch fully had in mind. Here is the weird part. When you unselect FX2, the patch does not pass the guitar signal. It is silent. If you go to amps and increase the BYP vol on the unselected amp, treadplate, from its default 0 to 100, the volume increases. It is a clean sound rather than distorted. Also the BYP Vol changes to the unselected amp. It is never on the selected amp. How can adjusting the BYP Vol on the unselected amp pass signal for the selected amp? Why does BYP amp jump to the unselected amp? What is BYP Vol? It looks like patch 6A Pull Me Under (Dream Theater) out of the same set list has the same type issue.
