Overdrive or compressor

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am thinking to buy a Firehawk. I downloaded the app and observed that the same slot (Stomp) is used for the overdrive and the compressor. For example I selected a Screamer HD and then tried to add Blue Comp. The Blue Comp replaced the Screamer.

 

Is that I have to choose either the Screamer OR the Compressor?

Then, What is the "Comp"slot for? I don't see the Blue Comp there.

 

I appreciate any help on this.

 

Thanks.

You can actually have the Blue Comp and an overdrive in the same preset. There are three effects blocks in the chain that are essentially "wild cards" that can be changed to any effect from the Drives & Dynamics, Mods, Delays, or Filters, Synths, and Pitch group. To change from one group to another, you hit the effect icon for the one you want to change, then hit the icon for that effect type up in the upper left hand corner. Once you do that, you'll be in the menu that lets you select which effect from that type you want. If you hit the word "Type" in the upper left hand corner here, you'll be taken to another menu that lets you pick which group you want to use.

i agree with you though - pointless having a dedicated comp module if you can't access the compressor types. one word of warning with the fire hawk - to the point i have had to stop using mine. is it won't work in strong sunlight. the optical expression pedal goes haywire in bright light. and switching between presets on the box is a very clunky thing in terms of sounds. sometimes a big click. delays cut short. I'm waiting for the helix - hoping this will fix these things.
