Best way to setup "Bank" switches?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm using the Helix in snapshot mode, all of the time, and either assign the first bottom and top switches to change banks or change presets.

 

Either way, with my clumsy feet, I often hit the "bank button" instead of the first snapshot switch, both top and bottom row, causing a change of patch or preset in the middle of the song.

 

I was wondering if there is a more "fool proof" way of setting these up, how you guys use them and if anyone else is as clumsy as me...

 

In my defence, I sing as well as play so I don't have the luxury to look down at the pedalboard too long when switching..

 

Advice much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Vinny

I have mine set to bank and when I hit it by accident in the middle of the song it doesn't change the sound, it just shows the available presets in the bank. So all I have to do is hit the Cancel button on the top right. Hope that makes sense.

Someone in the past had a link to some footswitch extenders. Things that attached to your foot switches to make them easier to hit. Would love that link again. Something that simple might help?

Yeah I've had this problem with the bank buttons - wish they could be moved elsewhere - that bottom left button is the easiest one to hit when you're singing and playing at the same time ... shame it's wasted on a bank button :(
