Performance mode block colors

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

Anybody know why/how to fix the color blocks on the screen in performance mode? Sometimes they show as the same color as the LED ring around the foot switch. Other times they block is just grey on the screen. Is there a maximum amount of parameters that can be set to a patch before the color drops out? 

E.g. on FS3 I have a Phaser and delay set for on/off. It works fine, the block on the screen is always orange. On FS 11 (set for Lead) I have OD on/off, EQ midrange increase, mics change on the cabs, Delay on/off, and a few other things. They are all set to Red in the editor, and the LED on the switch is red, but on the screen it's grey. WTF???

Yes, I only use preset mode right now, but having colored 'blocks' on the performance mode screen would be a great help when trying to choose which buttons for which sound.  Or at a minimum allow the LED Rings to stay on, and choose between off/dim/bright when active or not.

So I found a trick to fixing this.

After making an adjustment that results in the screen block losing the preset color I found this works to reset it:

  • save the patch
  • clear the block that is first in the chain and tied to the FS in question
  • reprogram that block accordingly

For me that means deleting and re-programming the tube screamer on FS11 I use to activate all of the changes for my lead sound.


Hope that helps!
