HX Stomp XL mode and tap footswitches

Hi, folks.

I'm strongly considering switching my HX Stomp for an XL, as I've fantasized about extra footswitches for too long and don't love the midi options.

I was wondering if the XL footswitches are hard coded. Can the mode and tap footswitches be assigned to something else, or can they only do mode and tap? I looked at the manual and it seems the only option is for tap to also work as a bypass all, which is not what I'm looking for. But the manual wasn't too clear.

Anyone got a Stomp XL?
Thanks!

Hi,

 

The OP was asking about the MODE and TAP switches, which AFAIK really cannot be modified. The OP didn’t mention if he was only using the 4 ABCD switches.
 

I’m not sure if you are aware that but using Command Centre you can add the 2 BANK UP/DOWN switches for whatever purpose you require give you access to six footswitches.

 

If you haven’t already seen this - here’s a link.

 


Hope this helps/makes sense.

Yes, it´s about Mode and Tap for me as well.

So actually, I´d like to individualize ALL switches.

So I´ll stick with my Stomp + external switcher.

 

If it would be possible, I would like to have the five lower switches for presets and snapshots and the 

upper buttons for preset up/down and tuner.

It’s not exactly your vision but, with the XL Stomp, there is an option to add external footswitches as FS7 and FS8, although if you already have an EXP pedal in there, then it wouldn’t work.

 

Quote from the Owner’s Manual.

 

”Alternatively, you can add one (or with a Y-cable, two) external footswitches to access additional stomps, presets, snapshots, etc. (FS7=tip, FS8=ring).”

 

The function of the external switch’s can then be set via the Global settings.

 

 Hope this helps/makes sense.
