Can Helix use banks like podhd500 did?

With the pod we had the option to either select a patch with the bank and then use all 8 switches with different effects or use the bank to store up to 4 patches then once a patch is selected you could use only the top 4 switches to turn on/off effects.

 

I find i cant do the latter on the Helix or am i wrong? Can someone explain if this would be possible.

 

Thanks again.

I believe you can things up this way.

There is a 10 Stomp mode with no bank up/down.

 

There is a mode where you can have bank up/down with 8 preset switches.

 

There is a mode where you can have bank up/down with 4 preset switches on the bottom and

and 4 stomps on the top.  You can also have it flip flopped for presets on top and stomps on bottom.

 

I also believe that you can select to have the bank buttons instead be preset up/down buttons.  I would assume

this would allow preset up/down plus 8 stomps.  It's all in the global settings menus I believe.

  1. Press MENU and then Knob 6 (Global Settings).
  2. Use the joystick to select the Footswitches submenu and turn Knob 2 (Preset Mode Switches) to "Lower Row." Four Stomps appear on the top row and four presets appear on the bottom row (like HD500X's default state)

To view 8 stomps, just press MODE to select Stomp footswitch mode.

 

Global Settings are not accessible from the editor software.
