Thank you very much for the information and advice. In the version 3 firmware, are boost and fx1 possible at the same time?

I am finding the beanow docs both useful and sometimes difficult to decipher. I am a bit unclear as to how the CC16 switch relates to the other ones.

Any wisdom to share about that?
Yes, simultaneously should not be a problem.

CC16 is total FX1 block ON/OFF, fx1 being boost/mod section (also knob in katana);
CC17 is total FX2 block ON/OFF, fx2 being delay/fx (knob on katana)

So, to activate for example delay you need: CC17, delay_on, select delay from select delay or fx. To doublecheck this you can select fx off.
Is this making sense?
That makes sense. I think I was thrown off by something in the snhirsch docs which sounded like one should use EITHER the CC toggle or the bock on/off.

I am looking forward to being able to control more than one parameter of my favorite effects without using BTS.

Once one has been tweaking params from MDP (including sneaky amps) does saving a preset via the amp's buttons work -- or does saving via the amp's preset buttons only work for the vanilla settings?
Yeah sure. You can save with the hardware buttons.
During rehearsals I use the panel state (no preset 1-8)
Keep in mind that I do not work with bi-directional data, I send only.
Understood about sending. I was thinking that since we are just sending, it will be handy for me to save favorites into the amp so that I can suck them into BTS and save them in the librarian for sharing and future reference.
