Patch Snapshots are a powerful feature that allow you to save a “Snapshot” of a Patch’s settings. Patch Snapshots can be useful to easily switch between different sections of a song, such as an intimate Intro, to a building Bridge, and finally a big Chorus.
Each Patch Snapshot will store the following information:
- The Volume Fader position for each Sound in the Patch
- The engaged/bypassed state for each MIDI and Audio Effect, for each Sound in the Patch
- The Mod-Wheel position for the Patch
Changes to Sound Settings or the parameters within MIDI and Audio effects are not stored to Patch Snapshots. Changes you make within the Sound Settings menu or within any effect’s parameter menu will be stored to the Patch as a whole.
Snapshot States visualized
Patch Snapshots that have data saved to them will appear a light blue when selected and a gray color when not selected. Empty Patch Snapshots will appear a dark gray color when unselected and will have a light blue border when selected.
