2.80 - Loading the new presets?

Just curious how I would go about checking out the new presets in the update, without overwriting my own custom presets?  The update worked fine and left my presets alone as it should, but I read that there were some new factory presets added and I'd like to check them out as well.  I've already backed up my data on the HX Stomp, but would love to be able to merge any new factory sounds I like with my custom preset lists.

Starting at #4 below are the official  Line6 firmware update instructions.  Alternatively you can use the method provided in the link to the post below.

 

4. Loading the 2.80 Factory Presets / Templates

IMPORTANT! The following procedure will COMPLETELY ERASE ALL OF YOUR CUSTOM PRESETS! If you want to keep them, make sure you back them up First! (See “STEP 1a :Backing Up Helix /HX Hardware” above.)

  1. Turn off your Helix / HX processor.
  2. Depending on your type of Helix / HX product, follow the procedure below:

Helix Floor / LT - While holding footswitches 7 and 8 (two left-most switches on the bottom row), turn on Helix / Helix LT. Wait for “Will restore stock Presets and Setlists…” and let go

Helix Rack / Control - While holding knobs 3 and 4 below the screen, turn on Helix Rack. Wait for “Will reset Presets…” and let go

HX Effects - While holding footswitches 5 and 6 (middle two switches on the bottom row), turn on HX Effects. Wait for “Will reset Presets…” and let go

HX Stomp - While holding footswitches 1 and 2, turn on HX Stomp. Wait for “Will reset Presets…” to appear on the screen and let go

Helix Native - Click the gear icon in the lower left corner to open the Preferences window. From the Presets/IRs tab, click “Restore Factory Setlists”

5a. Restoring Helix / HX Hardware from a Backup (Optional)

  1. Connect your Helix / HX processor to a Mac or PC via USB (do not use any sort of USB hub) and turn it on.
  2. Open the NEW VERSION OF HX Edit 2.80 you installed in step 2, “Updating HX Edit to 2.80” above.
  3. From the top File menu, select “Restore from Backup.”
  4. Browse to the backup file and click “Open.”

TIP: If you instead exported individual setlists and loaded the 2.80 factory presets / templates (and want to keep them), from the preset list along the left side, select an empty User setlist and then drag the saved setlist file (from the tip in STEP 1) into the preset list

IMPORTANT! You may notice that after restoring from a backup (or loading in previously stored setlists or individual presets) that preset switching times are slower than normal. Restart Helix / HX, and you’ll see the display read “Rebuilding preset [XXX]”. Wait for it to rebuild your presets, and they will load faster.

5b. Restoring Helix Native from a Backup

If you don’t own Helix Native, skip this step.

  1. Open any instance of Helix Native within your DAW and click the gear icon in the lower left corner to open the Preferences window.
  2. From the Presets/IRs tab, click “Import Bundle.”
  3. Browse to the location chosen in STEP 2 above and click “Open.”
