dacrane Posted March 22, 2017 Share Posted March 22, 2017 Hello all, I just got a Helix and I'm already loving it, except for one thing...the glitch you get when switching presets. After doing some research, it looks like snapshots might be what I need, but I can't seem to figure out how to use them for what I want to do. How I'm using the Helix is just for a pedal board replacement, not for the amps so much. I'm playing into a Rivera Venus 6 set pretty clean. In a particular song, I want to be able to click on one footswitch and have my crunch rhythm, then another footswitch for a high gain lead with delay, then back to another footswitch for a clean sound with a little slapback delay. What I thought was the right way to go was to make a preset for each one and assign it to a button on the board. Switching between these presets causes a dropout that is just not working for me. I think snapshots could do this, but can't seem to figure out how to get to my snapshots to appear on the foot switches. Also, I want one snapshot with a distortion pedal with the gain set to 5, and another snapshot with the gain set to 10. So far all I can figure out is that I can turn the distortion pedal on and off in a snapshot, but I can't set the gain change. I think it's pretty obvious what I'm trying to do here, basically I got tired of tap dancing on my pedal board to turn off a OD, delay, and Univibe effect to get back to a rhythm sound right before taking a big breath and stepping up to the mic to sing....I just want to hit one foot switch, and not have a big dropout. Any help would be appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
