Can I use the MXR Tap Tempo switch with HX Stomp? If so, can someone PLEASE tell me how?

No.

Did somebody tell you that this would work?

 

EDIT: Yes, I didn't turn the knob far enough to see the FS4/5 Tap option.

 

ALSO, you CAN control Tap Tempo externally using MIDI (CC#64 Value >63), and you COULD use the MXR switch with one of these:

 

MIDI Solutions Footswitch Controller; General Purpose Input to MIDI

 

for US $159. (maybe you can find one for less...)

 

OR

 

use this instead of the MXR for US $99

 

MIDI Baby — Disaster Area Designs

 

This is a better plan, and can also be used WITH the MXR for other things.

I have spent hours trying to get this to work.

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes. :)

 

You can control Tap/Tuner with an external switch, via Global Settings. Depending if is it's a two switch pedal or a single switch, you'll be setting FS4 and/or FS5 as TAP/Tuner and it will work just fine. Holding the switch will kick into Tuner, tapping will set the tempo. If it's a single switch I believe you need to split the HX Stomp Footswitch port with a Y cable (TRS to TS/TS), as this port it's for two exp pedals or two FS.

 

I do that with a cheap but very solid Ampero Switch, and works flawless. I can't see why you couldn't use that MXR Tap to do the same. As soon as it's a momentary FS, it should work once properly setup in the Globals.

You're right! I didn't turn the knob far enough to see the FS4/5 Tap option. My bad!
