EVH 5150 iii midi amp switching w/hx effects & snapshots

Recommended Posts

Hi all - just got my HX effects this week.

I've figured out how to change channels on my EVH 5150iii 50 watt head using presets, but as others have indicated there is a slight lag when doing so. I've read much about how doing this via snapshots alleviates the lag issue - but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to make the amp change channels in snapshot mode. I'm using HX Editor (which is super convenient!), and I just can't figure it out. I don't know much about MIDI, so that doesn't help.

 

I have gone into Command Center on the HX editor, but from there I don't know how to set the parameters. I presume I setting it to MIDI/PC for one of the instant commands? But beyond that, I don't know what do do with MIIDI Channel, CC, value...I've tried various things to no avail. I am also putting the amp in learn mode, but just can't figure it out.

 

Any help would be appreciated! I wanted the HX Effects to control channel changes so I could get rid of the gigantic EVH footswtich!

 

A secondary question - is there a way to assign one stomp switch within a preset to change amp channels?

 

Thanks very much!

Finally figured this out, but ended up just adding channel changes to stomp mode instead of snapshots. This thing has a huge learning curve! But overall I'm digging it.

So you can't change amp channels in snapshot mode?

 

I have the same combination like you, evh 5150III and hx stomp, and now I have the same question...

The Control Center is not yet available in the HX Stomp.  That is how I was able to set up snapshots to control the 5150 III with my Helix Floor.  I thought I saw that it was coming in the 3.0 release but don't quote me on that.  You can set it up with presets but that is all right now.

I just got both of these, the 50 watt combo and the HX Effects.

 

Any update on how to do this?  Do we use MIDI, because the amp's footswitch only uses a TS (and not a TRS) cable yet it has 4 switches.

 

Thanks,

 

David
