Can the capacitance sensitive switches detect a double tap?

Curious as to whether the capacitance sensitive switches on the Helix could detect a double tap. This question is inspired by the user Jeff Miller who was interested in a quick method to move from one block to another, regardless of whether it was already assigned to a footswitch, without having to use the joystick. If the cap-sensitive footswitch can detect a double vs. a single tap (sort of like a mouse double-click), this seems like it might be a great function to apply to it.

Is there any reason why the genius of the capacitive touch sensitive buttons has not also been enabled for the Foot Edit Mode? Seems this would be a magnificent method to select the controllable parameter (in lieu of requiring a click of the fsw btn). Multi touches of the Value-, Value+, and touches of Back, <Page, Page> would be useful too!

Interesting... But if your hands are already at the level of Helix's top panel, why not use the dedicated knobs/buttons? They're way faster:

  1. From Stomp footswitch mode, touch the footswitch assigned to the desired block and turn Knobs 1-6.
  2. If necessary, press [<PAGE][PAGE>] to view more parameters.

Pedal Edit mode is expressly designed to be used when your hands are on your guitar.

 

I'd be more open to it if a few people didn't already confuse normal preset editing (hands) with Pedal Edit mode (feet).
