Renaming Button Name

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change the name of the button label? For example I have FS5 change the amp's gain and volume and it labels it "Multiple (2)" can it be changed to something like "Lead"? Thanks

Not currently, no. I don't know if custom footswitch names are something that will be added in the future or not.

This would be a huge help! If at all possible, Line 6 should definitely add this feature in the future! It would make the Pod Go dang near perfect! Can't imagine it would take up too much DSP or anything to do this..But then again, I know nothing!

Has anybody else heard any updates on this front?

+1..it would be very, very useful for gigging players. Otherwise it's virtually impossible to remember each snapshot within a multitude of different patches.

I've been using Helix many years and just bought the Pod Go as a complement for travels. I took for granted that renaming snapshots/buttons was possible since it otherwise works the same as on the Helix. Once you've renamed it it's just a static name on a screen so processing power shouldn't be an issue. This should be among the first things to upgrade because 1-2-3-4 doesn't say much about the sound you get when you press them. Also, make it possible to have 6 snapshots on the 6 buttons like in the pedal-mode. Even better, let us choose individually what each button should do PRESET - SNAPSHOT - EFFECT on/off.

I just wanted to chime in here and agree with everyone else. It would be a huge help if we could rename what the button says. My use case is I'd like the button to read "Boost" and when you hit it the drive on the distortion and level goes up. Then another that plays with the reverb settings so it can be tighter during a song but increase the decay and adjust the compressor so it rings out forever to end the song. Having both of these read "Multiple (2)" sucks. 

Also it would be rad if we could set the color as well as the text.

This is the main thing I request as well.  Having many buttons that are "Multiple (x)" in the same color means you're having to stick to a rigid method or you forget what they did.

did you know that at least you can change the color of the multiple buttons? whatever last fx parameter you will save for that switch, that it will take the color (like green for delays, blu for modulations and so on).

I"m late to the party here, but  footswitch naming is essential in a pedal like this. Given the limited nature of the pedal (not a bad thing - it's why i bought it. Less 'decision paralysis'), you must rely heavily on controllers to get the most out of it.

 

I do this:

 

instead of using a drive pedal, choose an amp with a great clean tone. Then use the "free" eq block before the amp with the level boosted way up. Assign a controller to turn on the eq block while simultaneously turning down the amp volume. Instant amp distortion. No additional pedals needed. 

 

Instead of choosing two reverb pedals, I use Ganymede with mod low and decay low, as always on, and then a controller to up the mod/decay/alter tone, etc. This gives you a standard short decay verb and a big lush verb using one pedal.

 

Instead of two delay blocks, I follow a similar set up to the reverb using one footswitch and then another to turn the delay on and off

 

Now, I have essentially 5 "pedals" using 4 footswitches. However, 3 out of 6 footswtiches say "multiple" and have the same color LED ring.

Won't be included in the forthcoming Pod Go update  (release date and contents not known, but likely to include some elements of Helix 3.0) but multi- assign and snapshot naming are high up on Line 6's 'to do' list. 

 

For greater flexibility I have 2 external pedals connected in F7/F8. So you can opt to dedicate those for similar changes e.g. F7 can give you second set of reverb parameters and F8 a second delay setting. Or F7 gives an amp gain boost and F8 e.g. a mic type/distance/settings change.
