    So after some time with my LT and a lot of programming I have one question left, maybe you guys can help me:)

    I am using a split performance view with 4 stomps in the upper row and 4 snapshots in the lower row.

    WP_20171228_15_56_53_Pro (2).jpg

    I assigned four different colours to the footswitches for my snapshots. The performance view display doesn´t show these colours though. The snapshots are always uncoloured in the performance view, while the rings around the footswitches are coloured.

    When I assign colours to the stomps, it changes the colour in the performance view for the stomp box, too. It just doesn´t work with the snapshots.

    Is it possible to get my snapshots coloured in the display?

    BTW, I love my Helix, best piece of gear I ever bought (Besides my Knaggs Kenai:) )

    Cheers,

    Thorsten

    Only one question left?:cool2:

    I think that's just the way it is as far as the display coloring. I use 8 snap / 8 stomp via the mode switch & it's the same. Also if you assign a parameter from a given effect to a switch, the display will say something like "mode" not chorus / vibrato. (from Elephant Man Delay). And the ring will either be lit or dim, no color choice there.

    Well the color scheme is to support effects types so you can tell at a glance which effect you are engaging/disengaging. With snapshots how would you associate colors in your mind to assign? I think line6 assumes you'd simply rely on the order/sequence to know. I thinkyou can also quickly toggle between performance mode and snapshot so you'd have all 8 switches at your disposal in each. This is frrom watching demos and readings posts etc only, I don't own one these yet!
