MusicLaw Posted December 4, 2016 Share Posted December 4, 2016 Can Helix's onboard footswitches be used to navigate through the available Amps, Preamps, Amp+Cab, and various FX Type models of a selected Block? Can the Footswitch Controller Assign feature do this? Is there any method other than rotating or toggling the Joystick? I would like to be able to audition each model type while playing guitar without having to stop and use my hands to rotate or toggle the joystick. I know that for a currently selected Block -- Foot Edit Mode -- displays that model's parameter values on the scribble strips, and pressing a parameter's footswitch selects it allowing adjustment via the Value - and Value + footswitches, or, by the Treadle (and that there are page fwd and rev, back, exit and save fsws). Ideally, I'd like to be able to create a new preset with path 1 containing, for example, 3 Blocks. One an Amp+Cab Block, one an Amp Block, and a Cab Block. Using the footswitches I'd like to audition each Block's Helix Models to hear each, one at a time while playing guitar. I would expect to be able to use the footswitches to Bypass the Blocks, as desired, to isolate just the Block(s) I wish to hear. Adding to the Path the same could be done with other FX type models for additional blocks. All without having to use hands on the Helix. Curently, I'm finding I need to reach out and toggle or rotate the joystick to navigate the Models, regardless, if I have the Model List displayed or only one Model at a time displayed above the value knobs near the bottom of the screen. I am not using the Helix with a computer nor the Editor (except for firmware updates, backups, restores, etc.) If this has been asked and answered, please direct me to that thread. Otherwise, I may post this to IdeaScale. Thanks. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
