"Ten Patch View" Command Center Setup Problem

Recommended Posts

OK I tried the "10 patches" setup with Command Center. It's actually REALLY great. I turned on patch spillover (cuts each patch down to one CPU) and everything works perfectly so I now have ten different patches right in front of me at all times with seamless transitions. However there is one pretty big problem.....there is no "ring" indicator as to which patch I'm on when in this mode. It's not even an option. So now I select a patch and the ring of the active patch doesn't light up. Does anyone know a work-around? There's no "customize" feature in this part of Command Center.

Since when you’re hitting any of the footswitches, you’re actually loading a new preset, this means any settings in the preset you’re coming from wouldn’t apply…

 

What you could do is create a Stomp assignment for the switch that you’d be using for the preset you’re currently in. What I mean by that is that of your 10 footswitches, 9 will be for taking you to different presets, and the 10th is for the preset you’re in now. You could still leave that command, but add a dummy block - a Gain block or something - and assign it to that footswitch. Make sure the preset os saved with that effect turned on, and then the LED indicator should work. When you load the preset, the footswitch for that preset will be lit up.

Worked, set to COMP - momentary - red ring (and named for each current patch). THANK YOU!

I've just begun setting this up today and have a related question.  My goal is to have access to 10 presets and be able to switch between them.

 

1)  I set global stomp mode to 10 switches

2)  I enter command center while on preset 000

3)  I set the 10 available footswitches to HX Presets 000 to 009 and save the preset

4)  I toggle on Stomp mode and everything looks as expected

5)  I select one of the HX presets which loads fine but now my 10 stomp labels are blank

 

It seems to me to be able to switch between the same 10 presets, that each of these 10 presets command center settings must also have the same 10 HX presets defined.  I got this to work by simply doing a copy and paste of all commands to each of my 000 - 009 HX presets.  

 

It works great but I'm wondering if this was the right/easiest way to make this happen?

 

Thanks!

Just got this setup as well.  Fantastic work around!

I assign the name label for the patch to my COMP block and set it to momentary / red. So even if you press the switch, it won't do anything after you are on the patch. This completes the "10 Patch View" setup. It's seamless transition and ten at your feet. Awesome!

Yes, this. Remember to remove the current patch assignment from each Command Center current foot switch and you will be in great shape.

Cool.  I also set the same label for the patch but use the Volume Effects "Gain" block and set the gain to +/-0 so even if I hit it by mistake while in the same preset nothing happens :-)

We can use this as a solo boost but would have to hold the switch down.

Ya.  When I was using snapshots I cleared all the stomp assignments except 2, 1 for a gain block set at +4db and another at -4db.  Worked great having an instant boost or cut, but I'm happier with this spillover/command center 10 preset configuration.  I think your idea of using the momentary switch as a dummy is even better than what I did.  In my approach I had to add the gain block, in yours you just picked an already existing COMP block, correct?  Oh well, the point is either way works and having 10 custom labelled and lit presets available at one time is fantastic!

Yes, I assigned the already used COMP block, changed to to momentary, red and the name of the patch. Awesome!
