Saving Preset Question

Recommended Posts

I have a Helix LT and use HX Edit to adjust parameters. I load a preset that I like and start messing with it. Now I want to save the new settings, but to a DIFFERENT preset than what I loaded as I don't want to overwrite the original. 

 

How is that done? I can't find a way to save the current settings on the Helix LT anywhere else but the currently loaded preset. I'm new to the Helix, so this could just be newbie ignorance.

On the HELIX you have to push save TWICE for it to actually save. There is a reason for that second push, it's so you can change where you want it saved. When you push save the first time look on the screen for the word "destination"... the knob under that word allows you to choose the location you want it saved. Choose your location, then push save again to store it there without harming your original preset.

 

For safety reasons, I always copy a preset to a location before I begin editing it. That saves me from accidentally over writing a preset in error.

Ah, so it's possible on the Helix itself, but perhaps not through HX Edit. I will give that a try right now. THANKS!

 

EDIT: Yup. Works fine on the Helix LT itself. I'm taking my "direct to the PA" presets and bypassing the cab block then tweaking EQ/etc to create presets that I use when running my LT into the FX return on my combo tube amp.

I don't have anything hooked up right now.. but IIRC HX Edit does not have a Save As...

 

When I use edit I simply copy my preset to a new location, then edit that new location. I do that on the Helix as well, but it's the same procedure that I outlined already... using the destination control.
