Problem with footswitch when changing patches

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have a little problem with my pod hd500:

When working with patches in the ABCD mode the postion of the effects assigned to the footswitches 1-4 always stay the same. What I mean is: I have saved a patch with a effect on fs1 that is activated. I turn it off. Then I change to preset 2 and back to the first one (with the effect pedal). The effect will be turned on again, even if I left it deactivated. When switching to a preset the footswitches always return exactly to the positon in which they are saved.

:(

I find that really annoying. Any possibilties to change that, so that the pod will remember if I turned the effect on or off without saving it everytime (which isn't possible while playing of course). I hope you understood my question,  :)

Your question is well understood.

 

You are correct - when switching to any preset the Pod HD recalls all settings as they were last SAVEd, not as you last left them without saving. That behaviour cannot be changed.

 

It's not a problem/bug with the device; that's the way it's designed. The device uses ONE buffer to store all the settings of the active preset. When you switch presets the current settings in the buffer are discarded (no longer available or 'remembered') and the stored (saved) settings for the new preset are loaded into the buffer. In order to fully implement the behaviour you want you would need to have a separate buffer for all 512 presets. This is the only way to retain the unsaved settings between visits to any preset. That would mean 512 times the amount of preset RAM; not feasible or cost effective.

Thank you for the quick answer and the good explanation. :) Makes sense, still a pity. :D
