HX Stomp Tuner Access

Recommended Posts

Is there a way  to access the HX Stomp tuner OTHER than the Tap/Tuner foot-switch (or MIDI)?

 

The manual only refers to the tuner with the Tap/Tuner foot-switch which I intend to reassign, with pedals preventing use of FS4 and FS5.  I won't have MIDI connected, so that's not an option.

Could you be a little more clear here?  Are you saying that using FS4 and FS5 won't work for your option?  Because you can setup FS4 or FS5 to be the tap tuner, but I wasn't sure if you were saying you knew that but it wouldn't work for you.

With 2.7, [ACTION] + [PAGE>] together will start the tuner, useful if you have set switch 3 to stomp instead of tuner/tap.

Thanks mr_dad_g, that's what I wanted to know!

 

To Kilrahi - because I'll be connecting 2 pedals to the EXP 1/2 socket, I won't be able to use FS4 or FS5 for the tuner.

Hi.

Could this action be assigned to an external pedal via FS4? Like a Boss FS-5U?

All the best from Aslak, Norway.

Care to share with the class?

 

The below video is pretty informative. Connect it, and then go into the HX Stomp's global settings and designate that you want FS4 to be FS4, and not an expression pedal, and then designate that FS4 has the tuner function.

With HX Edit 2.82 and included HX Stomp Firmware (2.65) this doesn't work anymore. Any other solution to access the tuner in this case?

The Stomp firmware has to be 2.70 or higher for it to work. You need to update the firmware.

K, don't know if this has been answered anywhere else but is there a way to access the tuner with midi? It'd be nice to access this tuner by holding the mute button on my Boss es5 (the same action used to bypass all pedals in the unit. so, perfect I think). TY tons!

I have the same question except I want to access the tuner by long-pressing the tap switch I have plugged in as FS5 (currently set to scroll through pages)

Has anyone found a way to do this? I'm pretty sure I already know the answer but there should be a way to turn on the tuner and bypass the sound (kill/mute) instantaneously like every other tuner pedal in the world.  Holding down the tap/tuner pedal, although a short amount of time, is too much time.  I know it seems like nitpicking but when I need to kill the sound on my guitar I need to kill it NOW not HOLD the switch until it registers.  It would be SUCH an easy fix and currently I'm forced to use an external tuner just so I can quickly mute my guitar when I'm playing keyboards.  I would buy the Helix Stomp XL today if it had this ability. But everywhere in the manual related to tuner it says you have to HOLD the switch.  I don't have that kind of time.  I also don't want to sacrifice a block to being a volume kill switch.  It would be SO simple if they just gave you the option to have the tuner be a  block and/or give you the option to remove the TAP function from the TAP/TUNER functionality.  So as soon as you hit the assigned button BAM it's silence!

You can do it with a MIDI controller, but that’s the only way.

 

I wouldn’t say every guitar processor works like you’re saying, though... Every Line 6 processor has worked the same way in having the the tuner function being accessed by holding the tap switch down, actually.

I agree, and I really don't get why the TAP functions seems so important.
If only Line 6 could add this feature, i would dis my tuner/mute pedal.

 

By the way; "that the way it has always been with Line 6" does not seem to me to be the best of reasons to keep it that way.

I don't expect Line 6 to change the default - just give me the opportunity so that I can get rid of my last pedal. Shouldn't take many month to code.

I think the hold and tune is necessary on the Stomp, as it's just 4+1(tap/tune) switch available. Sure, an option to make FS3 just tap or just tune, would be also nice. I wouldnt personally use, as I need Tap, but I see the point.

 

Id like the option to split tap and tuner in the Rack control, or in the Floor. That would be cool indeed.

 

Ideascale? :)
