What is the reason for red LEDs on footswitches Bank up/down?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I wake up at night and ask myself some stupid questions.

Here is one of them: "What is the reason for red LEDs on footswitches Bank up/down?"

I mean… in what case do they lit up?

 

As a guitarist and singer I am often unsure if I will hit the bank-switches or FS1 and FS5 while playing.

Sometimes I accidently kick the bank-switches but wanted the FS.

 

Why didn't they gave them a blue LED-ring to separate the bank-switches from footswitches?

Same on the looper and tap  :ph34r:

Haha. Reminds of this:

 

 

It's a good question though. Maybe it would have been more expensive to have different colors?

because you can change Stomp Footswitch Mode in Global Settings>Footswitches to "10 switches" so those switches work just like the other ones to control FX blocks or other parameters.

DOH... never mind  :huh: :unsure: :wacko: :blink:

Easy to make that mistake once you've been using Helix for a while.

are you saying that it can give similar effects to the abuse of drugs or alcohol? :D :D :D

 

Sure. :wacko: :o :D :lol: :wacko: Only once you start, there's no recovering. It's permanent, damnit! At least the side-effects are minimal.

 

 

An idea about the original topic: when was the HD released? Around 2010? Were colored LEDS as widespread then as they are today?
