twjonckheere Posted June 8, 2015 Share Posted June 8, 2015 To start, I have been using a M13 for years and love it. Of course with that unit you setup a scene and turn pedals off and on as needed during a song. Now getting to my new Firehawk FX unit. I originally tried to treat it like my M13. I would setup a scene with a clean amp and then turn pedals on and off as needed. This way I could have a clean sound and then pop on the distortion with a pedal and so forth. However, with this came a few issues. First of all, the switching of pedals requires the second row. This means I have to be very careful when changing them since I may accidentally change into a different model instead (and I have done this a few times). The second reason is that the sound is not quite what I want (I'm just picky). Which leads me to the next idea I had.... I thought, this is a "sound model" and not a stomp box model. So why not just setup models for every sound I want. Then I could have the perfect clean sound (with a specific amp, cab, etc), perfect classic distortion (marshall distorted, 75's, etc), and a perfect heavy distortion (treadplate, etc). Plus all of my stomps would be on the bottom row and there wouldn't be a high risk of hitting the wrong pedal. Perfect! However... When I switch models there is a big and noticeable delay and ramp up of sound. I'm assuming it's because the model has to be loaded each time. Obviously this won't cut it on stage and is a big issue. Any ideas of the best way to use the box? If the delay + ramp up could be eliminated I'd have the perfect setup with option 2. Thanks.
