I was so full of expectation I went online literally every day for the last month to see if CorOs 2.0 had dropped. After spending a couple of hours with it since, I’m sad to say I’m a little unimpressed and in particular because I agree with you, after all the time spent developing the Hybrid Mode, it’s not nearly as useful as I hoped it would be.
The big reason for this IMHO is because you are limited to only 4 Scenes and 4 Stomps or 4 Presets (whichever combination you have chosen)
HOWEVER, a ‘Page 2’ function, which could be selected by perhaps a long press of a footswitch (eg the top right ‘Bank Up’ footswitch?) which would then give you access to another page of Scenes / Stomps / Presets, to restore you to the 8 available in non-Hybrid mode, would be the perfect.
Even better would be the possibility of user customising what the second page offers you (I think you can do something like this on the Helix?) So if I combine Scene and Preset, I can choose whether Page 2 offers 4 more Scenes and Presets or another 8 Scenes.
The other issue I have with the Hybrid mode is the colour coding of the LEDs for the modes that you combine; in the Modes Configuration screen, the graphic shows which row is assigned to which mode by using PURPLE and YELLOW LEDS. You can then toggle which mode is on the top and which is on the bottom, and the LEDS change colour correspondingly.
However, if you combine Preset and Scene modes as a Hybrid, when you then select the Grid, the Preset LEDS do not remain Purple and Yellow but instead take on whatever colour the Particular preset has already been allocated; so for example in Preset 1A, the letter ‘A’ on the top left of the main screen is in LIGHT GREEN, and the LED on the row that you have chosen as the Preset row will change to exactly the same colour. And here is the problem; the LEDS on the row you have chosen as the Scene row are also EXACTLY the same colour too. So whenever you have the Preset/Scene selected that will light up LEDs immediately above and below each other it is now extremely easy to be confused as to which row is to change the Preset and which row is to change the Scene - with potentially disastrous results if you are performing live.
I expand on this in another thread - see here
The other thing that gets me (although this is not a 2.0 problem, as it existed before, but I hoped that Hybrid mode would provide a solution to this) is how easy it is when trying to change modes by pressing both the Tempo and Bank/Preset Down switches, to accidentally change preset instead of changing modes - again with potentially disastrous results. Does anyone else have this problem?
