HX FXcontrol amp via MIDI and snapshots - how would you do this?

OK lemme try and explain what I want to do:

 

I've confirmed by lots of manual fiddling that I can get a bunch of sounds I like but telling my Bluguitar AMP1 Mercury to be on full gain and clean channel with built-in boost for my "loud clean Mayer-like" sound, and on the AMP1 Vintage channel at a different (reduced) ax gain setting (which has a MIDI CC associated) for bluesy sound, AMP1 Classic channel at a different-different midi gain setting for another sound. 

Challenge 1 I'd like to be able to switch between those using Snapshots, so each snapshot needs to send a specific value for max gain on a known MIDI CC# - I don't know how to add that to a snapshot - any pointers? 

 

Challenge 2 : I'd also like to be able to turn on and off my delay (Transistor Tape - I love you) at will, ditto Minotaur and possibly phaser or tremolo, at will - so it sounds like I need to be able to get easily between snapshot view and pedals view - how's the best way to set up the view do you think - now I'm typing it out it seems obvious - snapshot mode and then hit mode button to get to pedals view? 

So yes I think the main one is - how do I add MIDI CC instant command to a snapshot? 

cheers!

The "Instant Commands" (IC) are the lightning bolt icons in Command Center. See page 41 of the manual (Rev C).

They load each time you load a preset and each time you change Snapshots.

You load a Snapshot, select an IC, set it to MIDI CC with the CC# and Value, then SAVE the Snapshot.

Repeat for each Snapshot. Your final SAVE should be on the Snapshot you want active when the Preset loads.

You can set footswitches in Pedal view to load Snapshots (Command Center), so no view changing required unless you run out of footswitches.

thanks for that. 

 

Yes - had the IC working on patch load, but hadn't worked out how to assign ti snapshots - will do as you say, thanks. 

And I hadn't thought about having a mix of snapshot and pedals on screen together - that could work! 

cheers man.
