    Hi. I'm stumped. How do you save presets in the firebox for easy recall ? I don't see how to save them using the software. Thankyou.

    The unit autosaves every change that you make to the presets.
    Once you have them the way you want them, go to FILE-Export Preset.
    You should create a folder for your presets and store them all there.
    When you wish to reload them, just set the toggle positions where
    you want to load one and go to FILE-Import Preset.

    Thankyou. Do you do the same thing on import presets? I see some presets I'd like to try on this board.

    but remember... it doesn't save the knobs position, except the A/B presets.

    Tell me if I understand this process from reading and testing.

    The A/B select button lets you choose between two of the toggle switch sets. The process does not save your customized signal chain to the button click, but it customizes the toggles and configures the A/B button to choose those two toggles.

    You select "A", customize TopBoost with Clean Boost switch, then select "B" and customize HotBrit with OD Boost switch. If I understand this right, those customizations get saved to toggle 1+2 TopBoost and toggle 2+3 HotBrit and come up as defaults when you select those amps in Enable mode, after which you can move knobs and stuff to taste.

    Also, that "B" (blinking red) customization becomes the Enable mode default and can be edited in Enable mode. "A" can only be edited in A/B mode.

    Let me know if I got those right. I just spent quite a while getting mine apparently setup this way.

    John,
    That sounds about right.
    Let me know if you run in to problems.

    Jace, I had two toggle positions setup this way a few days ago. I rewired my board, as one does. Enable mode had my familiar TopBoost. I switched to A/B mode, and both selections came up with all the knobs zeroed and the Boost reset to factory. I had to use the Editor to figure all that out and repair it. I don't ever have problems with Enable mode losing presets, 'cause they're "mechanical" in nature. Toggle, toggle, knob, knob, works. But losing the A/B configuration is a big deal. I'm right in the middle of a board redesign using A/B models instead of overdrives and almost took this onstage broken.
