HX Stomp Processing power

Recommended Posts

I seem to run out of processing power pretty easily on this unit. I do realize that there is a 6 block limit.  I assume it does not have the same processor as the larger units.  Is this true?

I try to run 2 IR blocks like a lot of vids & cant.   I run a pretty basic chain, 808, amp, reverb, IR & EQ.

Some amps use up more DSP than others, and the IR's can chew up a lot, too... but the amp model is usually the biggest DSP hog.

Note that you can only run two IRs if both of them are 1024 sample blocks. You can't load two 2048 blocks.

Same DSP, but only one of them, unlike the bigger units. And artificially limited to 6 blocks.

 

The HX Effects also have a single DSP, but it’s not limited (well, something like up to 9 blocks?)

 

The 6 blocks limitation on the Stomp seems to be logical to some extent, since some amps alone needs >50% of the DSP. They also mentioned reasons related to the interface, ease of use, future updates, etc

 

On the other side, is a real drawback when some FX with virtually no DSP usage (FX loop, or the looper itself) can’t be added to the chain without wasting a block, despite having enough free DSP.
