About the lights/LED rings:

  • Are the LED Rings color related to blocks in HX Stomp?

    Dual V2, Triple I/O, Quadruple I/O: No. Color of LED ring is fixed. You can choose color of the LED rings – red, green, blue, white or yellow. If you don’t have preference – color of the LED rings will be random.
    Triple I/O 2 – yes! Not automatically, but user can select color of the LED ring with special MIDI message (using HX Stomp Command Center and Instant Messages) – details in Triple I/O 2 manual.
  • Are the LED rings showing the state of block assigned to FS4/5?
    Yes, after setup backlight of the buttons can reflect state of the block (in CC mode or in FS mode).
  • Are the LED rings showing selected Snapshot?
    Yes, ring of the selected Snapshot is blinking. At the same time currently selected snapshot becomes tap tempo.

How preset switching works?

Preset Mode is based on Program Change MIDI messages. Controller has its own “banks” and calculates Program Change value depending on controller bank number. In case of “I/O” controllers, Program Change can be also received by controller to synchronize it’s memory with current preset on HX Stomp display (two MIDI cables required for two way communication).
