HX Stomp external switch for looper

Recommended Posts

I'm a new owner of the HX Stomp and spend plenty of time during the weekend to fine tune my presets, explore HX Stomp features, and have it set up for studio and live use. Everything is perfect except for the looper.

 

I can't find a way to control he looper via an external Footswitch. Even changing the settings in global menu the most I can get is that the recording starts, but no way to stop it.

 

What do you suggest (NO MIDI) as an external Footswitch for looper use?

 

thank you!

It works the same way as if you assigned it to FS1 - FS3. I will say this, the type of external foot switch can make it harder to control. I own a Boss FS-6 footswitch and it's switches are sturdy but feel kind of spongy to me.  When I need quick taps it doesn't work as well (either a limitation of the design OR my mind not liking the spongier feel compared to the HX Stomp's click buttons). I bought it for a Boss acoustic amp I like and found out later it would work with the Stomp so it's not a big deal. I just choose to use the looper with the FS1 - FS3. Oh, and I know you didn't want to hear it, but I hate the one switch looper anyway. If I'm ever going to truly get my druthers out of the looper I'm going to buy a good midi controller.

 

If I were to buy a new dual footswitch for the Stomp, I'd probably get this little guy: https://www.amazon.com/Momentary-External-Footswitch-Foot-Switch-Stereo-Cable/dp/B07DRMB6X1/ref=sr_1_10?keywords=dual+footswitch+guitar+pedal&qid=1551714566&s=gateway&sr=8-10

Ok, thanks for your reply. I feel stupid now... :-D

Nothing wrong with the HX Stomp or the switcher, it was just me not double pressing fast enough...
