    I am moving from an AX8 to an AA6 for gigging and trying to wrap my head around losing the additional buttons. I don't want an AA12 because it's too long for my board, but the AA6 is perfect in terms of size. I like to use 2 very different delays in each patch, with one always ON and the input level controlled by a pedal to allow me to dial in the level manually as needed, then a fixed shorter delay, akin to the beginning of Welcome to the Jungle, that I can pop on/off with a footswitch.

    I am pretty sure I can control the echo level with the pedal no problem. Can I also use my TC Flashback in the loop and leave the loop Always on (on each preset I use) and engage the TC's footswitch to activate the delay?

    Seems like easy peasy, but want to confirm.

    unless you mean that you want 2 different delays from the amplifire itself i think you can do this. in the amplifire you can only have 1 delay block with up to 4 delay taps and you can control any aspect of that (or any other) block via expression pedal which you configure in the RTN block

    Echoing @ConstantinosM, yes, you can have the TC Flashback in your loop and set the loop to ON in every preset and engage the TC-FB manually. You can also make one of the switches always toggle the loop and then leave the TC-FB on all the time.

    Thanks. I figured as much. With using the TC to toggle, I free up one of the 6 foot switches for something else.

    This may be overkill but...

    If you can find one, a DB11 loop expander works well with Amplfire. It's a 4 loop midi controlled loop switcher with 128 presets. You can put it either before the Amplifire (this is what I do, with a pitch shifter and 3 different drives) or in the effects loop (e.g. with a univibe, another delay, fancier reverbs).

    You leave the pedals on all the time then just assign the loops to be on or off, as you need for each preset.

    Main benefit is that all of your effects, both the internal Amplifire ones and your external ones can be switched on or off with a single button push.

    Unused pedals are taken out of the signal path too.

    I bought one second hand for £80. Works like a dream.
