Can I save a transposition into a set list song

Postby clinkmd » 12 May 2017, 00:51

"Superstition" is much easier to play in Eb but the guitarists have us doing it in E.

I could try to remember to transpose it before we start (there is time during the drum intro), but it would be easier to have it set up ahead of time. The NE5 didn't seem to want to save a transposed version. Am I missing a step* in the process or is this not doable?

*Unintentional puns are the best kind.

Clinkmd, set up a Program called "Superstition" first with the transposition, and then use the Set List function to point to your Superstition Program. Changes to the Set List settings are not retained. You must always build a corresponding Program first for each song in the Set List. Hope this helps.

Thanks. I figured I was missing a step.

Still on the steep part of the learning curve.

Glad to help :).

Here's another neat trick while in Set List mode. Let's say you open Superstition in Set List mode, decide you want to add a wah effect or something else. You do that but need to switch to another song because of a last second change by the singer or lead guitarist. When you go back to Superstition, your wah effects and other changes are still there PROVIDING you stay in Set List Mode. That is a really nice feature. However, if you go back to Program mode, the changes to Superstition are lost. To retain the wah effect, you need to make them permanent by modifying the Program. There you go.

Good to know. This also explains why it seemed that I was saving changes only to have them gone when I went back later.

Also, you can save directly from the "Set List" mode: hold A (or B, C, D) while pressing Store button (but affecting that Program settings).

Forgot about that, Criss. Thanks for the input. I am in error, Clinkmd. You CAN modify a Program setting from Set List mode and have it "stick." Sorry 'bout that.

Re-educate the guitarists.

Thanks so much! This is far more convenient and makes a lot more sense. I can't say that the NE5 manual is as useful as it could be.
