    If all you need is a single great hair-mrtal patch, go Atomic

    Is the amp gain toggling with footswitch only possible with a snapshot? Or can a footswitch be used to do that when in stomp mode?

    What two button switch? What do you use it for?

    There are a number that work - using a TRS cable. It adds "FS4 & FS5"

    mic choice and distance is SUPER important, plus a judicious playing with early reflections

    Oh, and of course, the treatment of your space...

    You can assign it to a footswitch in stomp mode too. Any parameter, as far as I know. Not sure if there is a limit to how many things you can assign in stomp mode, but for example I have:
    FS1 ups delay feedback, mix, and adds a second delay.
    FS2 ups reverb mix and delay
    FS3 Tap/tuner
    FS4 amp drive
    FS5 output level as a clean boost

    Cool. I thought Stomp mode was just toggling a block on/off rather than a parameter

    yep footswitches in stomp mode are controllers just like an expression pedal, snapshots, or midi

    you can assign multiple things to one footswitch, for example I have footswitch 2 set up to turn the reverb mix and decay up and down. You could add a block bypass to that too, or any number of additional parameters

    thanks for the shout out

    most of my presets are set up like this for live use
    1. Amp drive up/down
    2. Reverb mix/decay up/down
    3. Misc effect
    4. Delay on/off
    5. Clean boost
    My video that was shared above shows how I set it up

    Tried the new plugins from Neural DSP (Archetype Nolly) and STL Tones (Tonality: Andy James) today. Despite all the hype surrounding these plugins, I deleted both after a couple of minutes, still prefer the Helix' SLO and Revv models for high gain. Also I finally tried the HX Stomp's ability to act as a USB audio interface. I've now set it up as input device in Logic with my Quantum 2 as output device. Had some strange hiccups in the first couple of minutes but now it seems to work like a charm.

    I love my HX Stomp.
