One Effect to Multiple Footswitches?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this forum, and just got a new POD HD500X.

 

I would like to assign the SAME effect to multiple footswitches.  Is this possible?  Here's what I am trying to do...

 

For one specific preset (that will be song specific), I have a "Solo" FS1 that turns on an Overdrive, Compressor, and Reverb.  No problem.  But at other times in the song, I only want to use Reverb without the Overdrive or Compressor.

 

FS1:  Turn ON / Off Overdrive, Compressor, Reverb

FS4:  Turn On / Off Reverb only

 

Can I do this WITHOUT adding two separate Reverb effects to my chain?

hmmm...The only way I can think that it might work is to jump the midi I/O with a cable and program FS4 with a specific CCs to turn that reverb on and off....Program FS1 the conventional way and FS4 using CCs...

OK, thanks.  I have NO CLUE what any of that means (I'm a novice), but I can accept that "it's complicated, and unlikely".  I am ablt to just put two Reverbs into the chain, so:

 

FS1:  OD, Comp, Reverb1

FS4:  Reverb2

 

I just don't like it because it uses one of the 8 slots that I'd like to leave open for something else.

You can assign multiple blocks to one switch. 

but you can not assign the same block to multiple switches. 

 

you can, however, put the same fx in multiple blocks.

depending on what you want to do you can assign different parameters for the same FX to different controllers. 

 

Example, analog delay w/mod ON/OFF to a FS, time to Exp1, mix to Exp2, feedback to JTV volume, depth to JTV tone.

I was going to suggest that. But it sounds like he wants an on/off type deal. So even if he used a wet/dry feature, the other one would still need to be turned on in order for it to have any effect. ---- put on/off to fs1 and wet/dry to fs2, but if fs1 is turned off, who cares what the mix is. (if  you follow that).
