    Any chances we can get the factory presets of stomp to helix floor? Anyone willing to share?

    Thx, that's great :)
    If someone could tell me if I can activate or deactivate the cabsims for one output that would be awesome.
    Or is it possible to split the chain and route A to output 1 with a cabsim and B to output 2 without a cabsim?

    It should be possible to split the output signal and use a cab sim on only one of them, yes.

    Yah this a major oversite. In a 12 song set I can’t bend over after each song. I would order the hx right now if this weren’t the case. Obviously as per the manual the product is designed for live use so you would think line6 would realize bending over after each song to switch to a different preset is not practical.

    Yes you can. In Snapshot mode, you can have 3 different snapshots on FS1, FS2, and FS3.

    When song is over, step on FS1 & FS2 at the same time to go UP to the next bank of presets. Or press FS2 & FS3 at the same time to go DOWN to the next bank of presets in sequence. After you choose the next preset, it puts you back in Snapshot mode, so you can use that preset's 3 snapshots.

    Nope. Not at all. See above. Pressing 2 footswitches at a time will index to the next preset using only your feet. And still leaving you in "snapshot mode."

    Thank you so much I will order now. If The preset is 10 songs away you have to tap fs1&2 10 times I take it.

    Six is tight if you want to do parallel routing for a couple cabs to simulate some room ambience and EQ after. But if it's meant to be a gateway drug for the larger units, it's totally the right decision.

    This is sooooo close to what I want. But, the problem is that to use the built-in looper, you need to be in Stomp mode (unless someone can offer an alternative, not including an external pedal). I can see getting everything done using Snapshots except using the looper, and moving from Snapshot to Stomp mode requires pressing the Page buttons (which are not easily controlled with feet, unless barefooted).

    The Presets come up in banks of three. So that would be 5 steps.

    If you have that complex of a setup requiring multiple advanced switching configurations; get an external midi controller or just get an LT, Floor or Rack. I use one preset for a 4 hour gig.

    Close. It presents the "bank of 3" presets. So pushing that 3 times would show you the next 9. So 3 or 4 presses should get you there. (I edited my original post to be more clear about that).

    Here's a short video I just made demo'ing Snapshot mode, and moving to other presets:

    I Think DI said you could in
    Snap mode
    You hit F1 F2 to go to next preset then your snapshots
    Reload
    You would have to make sure
    Your presets were in the right order but if you only
    Used 2 banks of 3 and 3 snaps on each preset you can get to 18 patches relatively quick
    If you practice

    In all honestly I did some testing if you do dual amp
    Into the same cab it won’t matter much if they gave you 12 blocks you will run
    Run out of CPU

    That’s actually super helpful to see not to bad if you only
    Used 3 banks 9 presets
    Which is more than I use on LT

    But i don't want the snapshot mode to be my home screen, i want the preset mode as startingpoint and switch from there to stomp or snapshot mode if needed. That's the way i've always worked with all the multi-effect processors i've ever owned...
