    Hi guys,

    A very happy new FX8 user.

    I have my FX8 using midi for my Mesa TC50. I currrently have the pedal layout as:

    Bottom row standard affair
    1=Green channel on TC50
    2=blue channel on TC50
    3=red channel on TC50
    4= Filter block with 6db boost for soloing

    The top 4 are just various effects

    My questions is, how can I have button 4 function as filter as well as a second delay for soloing, noting that I could be in any of the first 3 buttons (amp channels)?

    Hope that makes sense, excuse my ignorance as I should probably do more research, but not sure on the terminology to make this happen. Another scene for button 4 wouldn't seem to work, as I want to be in any of the other 3 scenes (button 1, 2 or 3) and be able to press on button 4 for the boost and added solo delay whilst retaining the blocks that current scene has.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sounds like a perfect case for scenes...

    Ditto
    By the way, I am using a TC-50 too.
    I set up scenes for exactly what you describe.

    No worries thanks guys, I will have a play and see what I can come up with.

    Any chance you would be able to upload your preset with the scenes bob, so I can try it out?.

    You could also look at assigning a 'Control Switch' to achieve what your'e after.
