    yes, another timeline thread! :p

    here's how I name mine right now so that I still know which "Bank" I am currently on ... I also don't use the scrolling feature and only scroll up to Bank 4.

    0A - "0 DMod"
    0B - "0 D8th"
    1A - "1 BBD2"
    1B - "1 TAPE"
    ...
    ...
    4A - "4 RVRZ"
    4B - "4 ICED"

    how are you naming your presets that is useful to you playing live?

    My memory's good enough for the few banks that I do use and I don't play live.... Naming's really a luxury for me. That said, that's a great idea, except I'd write 1A/1B.

    Often I find myself on a preset; I switch off, then I want to go back onto the same preset, but I don't remember which one it was. The A/B thing would really help.

    I don't have a timeline but when I had a Fender Cybertwin I named the patches after the songs I would use them on.
