    Wish Japanese Boss HM2

    Ahmed I feel that perhaps it just wasn't for you. However there are many extremely influential records and indeed whole genres of music which revolve around the tone created by this pedal.

    Wish Japanese Boss HM2

    I'd actually prefer the digital method. I went and bought an HM-2 clone when it became apparent that we were all screaming into the void with our HM-2 wishes. Adding extra hardware to my rig isn't something I like doing, as a touring musician simplicity is king every time.

    Axe-Fx III Wish List

    A Boss HM-2 block. Been jonesing for one for years... Yes I've seen the workaround patch using the amp block, I don't feel like it really does the sound justice. I remember someone even hand delivered an HM2 to cliff and he said he'd do it 'soon' but that was years ago now. I've gone and...

    Axe FX 2 Tonematch presets compatible?

    Spot on Moke! My presets are usually fairly basic with a Drive, Amp, Cab/TM, Gate and maybe Verb and Delay. I could just build those patches again easily. The main query was exporting my tonematch. I didn't know it could be exported as an IR (the more you know!) so that puts my concerns to bed...

    Wish Preset Cycle via external pedal input

    After taking the AX8 on tour this need is even more evident than before. Really hoping that Cliff will weigh in on this issue. If not it looks like I'll have to bust out the soldering iron and route parallel contacts from one of the switches to my output jack to achieve the same thing.

    When on stage with my Axe Fx 2 I would use a boss fs5u (momentary N/O switch) plugged into the pedal input to swap between my lead and rhythm presets on stage, I loved it because it's so small, I can have it right up against a foldback wedge with no problem and there's no power or midi...

    Using boss fs5u and the pedal input... Presets?

    That would be unfavourable for me as it would then require additional power etc. Whereas the fs5u is just a momentary switch in a housing, the only requirement is a guitar lead running from the pedal to the Axe fx 2, clean and simple. If the capabilities are there I'll put it in as a wishlist item.

    Using boss fs5u and the pedal input... Presets?

    Chris, I am using a momentary push button (housed in a foot switch) to cycle my presets. However I limited that cycle from preset 0 to preset 1 (my rhythm and lead patches) so that it effectively just swaps between the two. I don't have access to my Axe Fx 2 right now as I'm at work, but I can...

    Boss HM-2. There was a stack of guys asking for it at one point. Someone even went so far as to give cliff the pedal at one of the fractal events (last year?). Cliff said it was gonna happen but it never did. I ended up having to buy one to put in the effects loop.
