QuoteApparently the HX Effects is a bit complex, and its S/R loop apparently must be assigned "on" in some buried menu on HX Effects - because simply connecting it properly for a 4 cable method with AMP1 did not work.
Quote from: sixeight on March 29, 2018, 12:15:45 PMAFAIK you have to put a send/return block in the HXFX in the slot where you want the signal to go back to the BluGuitar. At least that is how it works on the Helix in 4cm.
QuoteWell, the wait is over: the Updates consists of a Firmware + Editor combo, both of which are needed for everything to work properly. The unit gets updated to v 3.5 beta.This is the (ugly!) Editor software:nux cerberus editorAs you can see, you can load multiple IR files up to 512 samples, 44.1khz stereo resolution (pretty good!) and then select which one you prefer. The selection is global and you can't control the IR per single preset.The new Firmware also comes with a fully editable MIDI map for the unit.The Editor lets you import and export the presets, and here are something I made so you can check them out if you have a Nux CerberusClick here to Download PresetsLast but not least, here is a free IR file of a 4×12 cabinet that I especially adjusted for the Cerberus!Download the FREE IR Cabinet File!In case you can't find it, here's the link to the Firmware download page for Win and Mac.Enjoy!
Quotetheferritt said: ↑Haven't used it live yet.But, I used it on a desktop recording tonight with an amp sim pedal in between the two Cerberus sections and it performed great.A couple of things worth mentioning. I found out that, just like the Boss ME-80, if you leave a dummy 1/4 inch TRS plug in the headphone jack, the cab sim is auto engaged on Output 2 .SO, it is not necessary to have the "cab" button pressed in, thus nothing on the l.e.d. display, and no noise.I should say, the noise is always there, but way way way down below the signal level, so you would not hear it while playing, and barely hear it when not, only if you switch something that lights up the l.e.d. display while you are not playing do you faintly hear it, even with higher gain, it shouldn't be an issue. This is the catch , the unit is very quiet when you plug your guitar straight in, BUT plugging into any pedal first, and then into the Cerberus, causes the l.e.d. display noise /whine when it lights up, and becomes audible enough to be obvious and annoying. I have no idea why. BUT, the mod with the 470uf on the power inlet jack cap is supposed to knock it way way way down again to a level that isn't anything to cry about. I have yet to try this myself, but that is next as I have a pedal I always use in front of everything, and I already got the cap from Fry's. It's smaller in size but same value, so it should fit inside much easier.The tone controls on the OD and DIST are not your typical tone controls controlling the high end. They are more mid/high mid centered to my ears, and may not jive well with every amp. Using some kind of EQ after the analog section, may be mandatory to get things to balance right with your base clean amp sound. The effects; Reverb, Chorus, and Delay, are all great. Forget the Phaser, Univibe, Tremolo, as these are all based on pedals that are designed to sound good going into the front of an amp, and not after OD and DIST effects. They do sound good if you turn everything else off and go into the front of an amp, but that's about it.
Quote from: Funkyfoe on January 26, 2019, 08:04:40 PMAlso the MIDI Program mapping doc only refers to the Cerberus receiving PC's, not transmitting. Does anyone know if will transmit PC's? And what channel? (multiple channels or Omni?) This is not referenced anywhere that I can find.
Quote from: grinder on December 23, 2022, 12:39:15 AMThank you, that's useful. However, the question about editing the PC commands transmitted by the Cerberus remains. I 'd appreciate any input on this. Thanks!
Quote from: NuxWhen you select patch 1A using the Cerberus footswitch, the Cerberus sends a program change (PC) message with a value of 0 to indicate patch 1A. Similarly, selecting patch 1B sends a PC message with a value of 1, and so on.
