How can I set up a real Autowah on an HX Effects?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a new HXFX with the intention of replacing my entire pedalboard with it.  Unfortunately I've run into a bit of a snag.  One of my main pedals is a Mooer Funky Monkey which is an LFO based autowah.   I was hoping one of the filter models on the HXFX could take its place but so far I'm not having any luck.


The envelope models are mostly dynamic and respond to pick attack rather than being LFO or time based oscillating between open and closed regardless of picking dynamics.   Envelopes are also poor substitutes for a true wah effect.   


I tried some of the models like the Throbber and Voice Box but they are not even close to sounding like a natural wah.  


I noticed there are a bunch of actual wahs in this thing but they require an external expression pedal.  I need a true autowah that will oscillate from open to closed at a set time like a phaser does.   Is there any way of accomplishing this with the effects currently in the HX FX?


I'd hate to have to give up one of my favorite pedals.  I thought about attaching the Funky Monkey to my board but with the HXFX, an Amp1, and my wireless receiver, I literally have zero room left.  


Any suggestions?
