Cabs are no fun either slinging them around.Some of the amps I dread. Diezels in particular. The Herbert weighs a metric ton.
When I retire I might make tube amps as a hobby/side-job. I have a design that would yield a 50W tube amp that weighs less than 20 lbs.
... Needs a bit more clearance especially when you speak a foreign language ....also looked at the Wiki for Soft and hard reset ...Yes, that's how it works when you've Authentic Mode enabled in Setup > Global.
Disable that, and "soft resetting" will leave BMT values intact.
I know this method leaves the Input drives (s) and Level intact from original preset as well as the Amp Boost amount, which is a great time saver and help to me when one is dealing with updating hundreds of presets to a new firmware.

when you switch to an amp and go back to previous , it s soft reset so it should keep BMT as before ... according to the Wiki ,
Am i missing something ..??
Something we had not to do since many FW !!!! Resetting Amp Block
Thanks for clearance....
New user here and I just loaded the new firmware. Could someone explain the purposes and the pros and cons of resetting the amp block? Assuming it would need to be done in each preset? Thanks.
If you do this, and have an available amp channel, copy your original to another amp channel, and then reset one of them. Then you can go back and forth between the original and the reset one and compare the settings (and tone).IMHO the most accurate way to do it is to manually switch to a totally different amp model, and then switch back again.
It'd be nice if either Fractal-Bot or the Edit programs had an option to reset the amp block (and/or any other block type that might need resetting) en masse. The "Manage Presets" pane seems like it would be the logical place because we could select one or many, but Fractal-Bot's Receive pane has a usable interface too.Yes, this now starts the process for a LiveGold Cygnus update for later this spring hopefully -- gonna take "many many many" weeks though.
The math so far about 6 hours in: 7 presets done (four amp scenes each, so 28 separate sounds), so "just 300 presets X 4 scenes more to go" (as Cliff completes each model)! Hahahaha.... It will go faster as I grasp what needs to be done with repetition.
Don't put yourself down, this my favourite Cygnus clip!!!PS: Joking (and my mediocre playing) aside, I felt that the clip above demonstrates nicely that Cygnus is NOT just about "chug". There is a vocal growling quality that was hard to achieve before without overwhelming the powerfulness of the sound.
In other words, it sounds better, and more easily.
Thanks for the clearance Yek .... will spend more time on the wikifrom the Release Notes for old firmware 3.02:
“Added Global "Tone Control Display" parameter. When set to Authentic (default) only those controls present on the actual amp are displayed. When set to Ideal all tone controls are displayed. Also, when set to Authentic, the Bass, Mid and Treble controls are reset to default values when changing models to ensure accuracy for models that may not have these controls.”
This is also explained in the wiki.
So are folks going through every preset and resetting the amp block in each one? Just not clear on how the process works. Thanks.resetting the amp block will reset all advanced settings (if set to Authentic; all settings) to default values. These default values might be different in the new firmware version.
FracTool can do that if I'm not mistaken. @AlGrenadineIt'd be nice if either Fractal-Bot or the Edit programs had an option to reset the amp block (and/or any other block type that might need resetting) en masse.
