Re: How do you REALLY get it to work?

jeff,
maybe you have read too many posts too carefully! some of them were related
to particular items, that are not at all relevant for the use with a v-amp.
you have 100 patches in the fcb, all of them with the same possible
functions. none. of them is predetermined to be a program switch or a cc
(control change=effect control).
because they didnt want to put one hundred switches on it, they just took
ten (plus two for up and down). by using the up/down switches you get to
another bank (= change the physical switches 1-10 to be 11-20, 99-100...).
all this talk about using five switches of one bank for progchange, the
other five for ccs, were suggestions for a sensible use. but sure this
depends on your needs.

Now, if I put Vamp A2 preset into FCB pedal#2, those same effects I
had for pedal #1 will not work with pedal #2, correct? I have to
program each pedal 6-10 again for the pedal #2? And so on to pedal
#5?
this is a question that, admittedly, has not yet been clearly discussed!
yes they will work! if you step on the footswitch that you have programmed
to switch on the reverb in v-amp A1 (which, say, is "large hall", it will
now switch on the reverb that is chosen in A2 (which could be "tiny room")
BUT:
take a look at the v-amp manual, chapter 8.1.:
the parameters are not separately defined for every single effect. apart
from volume, wah, gain, drive, eq and some others specials (that are present
in all presets), you find:
-pre-effect (comp, auto-wah)
-post-effect (ie all modulation effects)
-delay (delay, echo, ping-pong)
-reverb (8 kinds of reverb).

so if footswitch 6 was to put on the chorus in A1, it might in preset A2
put on the tremolo (or whatever post-effect had been chosen when this preset
was created).

once you have programmed a footswitch as cc (eg delay on/off), it will (in
this particular bank) be exactly this delay-cc, whatever preset is selected
in the v-amp (even if you switch your v-amp manually to D25, this switch
will change in D25 what you have programmed it to change, i.e. put on/off
the delay of D25).

let me know, if i wasnt clear again!
