    I was going to say what @decreebass said. Or save the block settings and recall it. I have done this a lot. It would be nice to copy an entire row from one preset to the next.. That is a wishlist thing I guess.

    Stereo amps and tracking.

    I have dabbled with this. It gives something different for sure but I still prefer double tracking. I have double tracked and reamped a total of 4 tracks (from DI) with 2 performances with mixed results unless I use sim IRs. This thing sounds so good.. I love playing it more than once...
