volume block active regardless of switch state

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

EDIT: I'm using an HXFX

 

when I add a volume block to an empty patch, the display greys out but the expression pedal still affects the level,

and the expression position in the display still moves when it's supposed to be disabled.

 

------------------------

 

i'm was trying to switch between a wah and volume pedal via a switch, but the volume block won't disable. it looks correct in terms of switching between wah and volume and the display shows the correct activation's but the exp pedal still kills the wah.

 

i redid a patch with only the volume, and it still controls the level regardless of it's enable state.

is it bugged or am i doing it wrong

thx

Easiest fix, delete both blocks, then add them back in.

i added a single volume block to an empty patch and the expression pedal still controls the level regardless of switch state.

just tried programming it from the app and still can't get the volume block not to respond to the expression pedal when the switch disables the block

 

thx

When you say switch, do you mean the built in toe switch under the expression pedal or are you assigning the volume and wah blocks to a single footswitch?  If it's the latter, you will need to go into controller assign and make sure both blocks are assigned to the same controller...either EXP 1 or EXP 2.  Then make sure one block is in bypass state while the other is active.

Are you using a Helix FLOOR or a Stomp?

If Floor, Then adding a Wah AND a Volume should automatically switch between the Wah on Exp 1 and Volume on Exp 2.

If You're using a Stomp, then you assign the switch you're using to both blocks, then save the preset with one block ON and the other OFF.

When you say that the Volume pedal continues to control the Level regardless of Bypass state, you mean it ACTUALLY continues, when bypassed, to control the Level that you HEAR, or you see the Position slider moving (normal)?

 

If you tried this:

 

"If You're using a Stomp, then you assign the switch you're using to both blocks, then save the preset with one block ON and the other OFF."

 

And it didn't work, I can only suggest a Facory Reset, and if THAT doesn't help, a Support Ticket, 'cause that ain't right!

Both audio level and position slider.

I made a patch using ONLY a volume block and still have the problem

 

EDIT: Ok, i don't know WTF is going on ... before doing the reset I tried the App one more time, cleared all blocks except the volume and now it works correctly.

btw, the position slider still moves when it's bypassed, but now the audio level isn't changing with it

I hate when things magically fix themselves

thanks everyone
