Footswitch assignments lost


Recommended Posts

I have an HX Stomp and I managed to lose all the footswitch assignments on all patches.


The three led rings are /stay white and I can't assign fx blocks to them. According to the manual touching the capacitive switches for 3 secs will bring up a dialog - which doesn't seem to happen in my device.


I haven't reset the device yet, as I don't want to lose my patches / IR settings.


Any ideas how to fix this?

Is it a known bug?

I suspect this happened when I played around with a Yamaha MD-BT01 Bluetooth midi adapter, but I never changed all presets (which would require saving them individually) and I currently don't know how that happened.


Thanks for your help,

Yep, wait with deleting.

Just an idea. Set touch select to off in the general setting of footswitches.

I do not want to claim that this is the primary cause of the error.

I faced also some strange effect with some settings of the foot switch.

I suspect rather (with me) that they were unwanted operations while I tweaked around a lot.


I work also with the MD-BT01 and I am happy with it. !

If you have multiple MIDI devices in your setup, plug them out except your HX stomp.
Some devices and sometimes midi files send midi commands that are not understood by many other devices. 



If you really have a bug with your HX stomp, you should contact the support.

I just contacted support.


If you're using the MD-BT01...

Do you have a great solution where to put the controlling device (iphone etc)?


I'd love to keep it near the guitar or even attach it to it, but I haven't seen a great solution for that. Music or Mic stand is an option, but that's already too far away...

...found it!


I didn't loose the foot switch assignments. I just had set the device to snapshots without noticing.

Hence the led rings were just white and didn't change anything in my patch, as I don't use different snapshots.

Since the screen showed the fx blocks section, I couldn't see the snapshots changing (in the background).

Once I realised that, the solution was simple - press the page button until you get to the stomp mode again.
