    the foot switch only turns off one of the effects in the patch and won't turn off the pedal compeletely.

    I need a option to bypass this pedal quickly when I need to.

    How do you guys do it?

    I know I can assign an empty patch in between the sets but I like having footsiwtch to be able to turn a single effect on/off too.

    If I assign Sets, foot switch will cycle me through sets and not turn on/off single effect right?

    Put the "Line Selector" effect first in the patch and have that one on the screen, which will bypass everything after it when you stomp.

    Or, yes, if you assign A, B, C to a list of patches it'll cycle through those, so one of them can be all bypass (or just noisegate and compressor, or whatever your base signal comprises).

  3. I tried both of these and it works fine.
    For now though, I'm looping the MS60B through a Saturnworks pedal and that's probably the best way I found how to use it. Everything is sent through a Boss LS-2, so when the effect is on, I always a dry signal ensuring low-end integrity. A cheap alternative to using 2 amps :).

    I'm about to put mine in a loop with a Saturn works pedal as well, but you can also set the tuner to be a bypass (rather than muting the signal)

  5. Once I have all my bits and bites together my MS60b will be in a separate loop and MS100bt in another.

  6. You can change the tuner from mute to bypass within the menu.

    Means you can hold the switch for a second and it just basses everything. Might work for you, might not.

    Oh yea Im actually doing the exact thing. But I hate the fact that I have to hold down for 1 second.
     
  8. There's no way round that; there's only so many usable functions one switch can do...

    It's a viable solution as long as what you're doing isn't time critical. Even then, i reckn I could probably perfect the timing of it. How hard could it be?
