Is there a 3 footswitch pedal available for the HX Stomp?

My Topic asks it all!

 

This pedal needs to be no wider than the HX Stomp, and only a few inches front to back.

 

BTW, if the HX Stomp will allow more than 3 additional footswitches, I'd like that even better, so let me know of that model :)

From the manual:

 

10.
EXP 1/2, FS 4/5 Connect an expression pedal here to adjust a wide variety of parameters.* With a Y-cable (tip-ring-sleeve 1/4" jack, split to two tip-sleeve 1/4" jacks), two expression pedals can be connected. Alternatively, you can add one (or with a Y-cable, two) external footswitches to access additional stomps, presets, snapshots, etc. (FS4=tip, FS5=ring). To set this jack’s function(s), see page 52. By default, this jack is set to accommodate a Mission SP1-L6H Line 6 Expression Pedal, which has a toe switch that toggles between EXP 1 (Wah/Pitch or Poly Wham) and EXP 2 (Volume/Pan). For external footswitches, the momentary (unlatched) type should be used.

 

IOW - No. There's 3 button switches out there, they just won't work with the HXS.

 

HOWEVER, you can add as many buttons as you want with MIDI.

 

Morningstar is a very popular brand with HXS users:

No, I knew what you were asking. I included the manual reference FYI.

Unfortunately, MIDI pedals do cost more than simple analog switches.

Plus there's the learning curve.

They do work great though, and are usually much more flexible.

I just purchased a Mission SP1-L6H Line 6 Expression Pedal, so does this mean I can't add a 2 pedal footswitch?

 

It's either/or. MIDI is now your only option.

That pedal is your 2-switch pedal, as described in the documentation. I don’t know what you mean. It’s not two pedals, it’s two switches. 

I mean it can be a volume pedal or a wah pedal.

 

Just like the pedal on the "lowly" Pod Go :)

It's all in the manual. :)

 

"With a Y cable, you can connect up to two expression pedals and/or momentary type footswitches to HX Stomp's rear panel EXP 1/2 | FS 4/5 jack. Alternatively, you can connect a single Mission SP1-L6H Line 6 Expression Pedal, which has a toe switch built in that can toggle its function between EXP 1 (Wah by default) and EXP 2 (Volume by default)."
