PX-8 Plus - Presets Question

Post by Monsta-Tone » Thu Aug 17, 2017 12:09 pm

I am very interested in the PX-8 Plus!
I've been wanting a pedal looper that sends midi commands for a very long time.

When in Preset mode, can the PX-8 preset buttons toggle between the previous preset and the preset assigned to the button that was pushed?

For instance:
Preset 1 is clean rhythm for singing along with
Preset 6 is lead preset
If I come to the solo in the song and press 6, can I toggle back to Preset 1 with another press of button 6?

My old Digitech GSP1101 has this function and it is priceless for singing and playing. No tap dancing.

If this is not possible, can it be added to the list of ideas for future firmware updates?

Thanks,
Andy

Sorry for the delayed reply!

This is not something the PX-8 Plus currently does. I suppose it is possible this sort of feature could be added, but I certainly wouldn't have a time frame for when.

The PX-8 Plus has four presets available in each bank, and has 9 total banks. You could instead have different banks that put often used presets together as a way to accomplish a similar thing.

I hope that helps!

Thanks John. Please keep this in mind for future updates.

Also, if it were in any way possible, it would be extremely handy to be able to access all 8 presets from the 8 buttons.
Maybe the Bank Up button could be held for 2 seconds to toggle back and forth between standard setup and 8 available presets.

Not trying to be a pain, just offering suggestions on a really cool product.

Thanks again,
Andy

Hello, I'll second to Andy. 8 presets from the 8 buttons, please?
I've been using the Px-8 plus (with Dingbat medium and mondo power combo) for 2 months. I originally was going for the gigrig G2. But because it's such a compact product I purchased this instead.
I have about 3 banks full of presets now. And I occasionally switch between different banks. And thats ok for most of the time. But depends on the music. I sometimes feel that I can not switch that fast, or even try to do it. Solution so far has been that I make presets with more effects engaged and switch on the fly (or between the songs).
I guess my point is - in some instances you would need more than 4 presets in a bank to switch quick enough.

I do enjoy the board though. It's very practical I think.

Thank You Voodoolab!
