Which Fender Twin model is it? And what is the footswitch actually switching for you?
its a 90's twin..i believe they get called the "evil twin"
maybe i havnt explained it right..the hx can switch channels on many amps so im told..the manual says to use a trs lead and plug it into one of the expression ports and the other into your footswitch port on the amp..so for instance if im using a snapshot i can switch my amp channel and switch off a few effects and maybe turn a few on
my pal who has one has a marshal amp and it works fine on his setup..
i think it might have to do with fender footswitches..my fender footswitch has lights on it so i assmue there is a voltage coming from the footswitch port to the actual switch..maybe the hx isnt expecting that ???
like i said it works ..it switches the channels..but when i try to get the hx to change the amp i get loads of buzzing and crackling..ive tried all the polarity things etc in the settings page on the hx
it also works fine if i use the fender footswitch along side of it...
do you think i need to get something like a insert lead and use both expression ports to get this to work properly..
As an aside Gilmour rarely used just one drive pedal, even back in the early days with the Fuzz Faces so that might be why it isn't giving you "that" tone. Amp volume is also a big part of his tone, the amps are wound up loud to just on breakup.

Odd that you are getting humm/buzz using the F/S - do you normally use a F/S with the Twin before getting the HX?
ive lost myself down the gilmourish site rabbit hole..its an awesome resource
like i said im not getting a hum when i use my fender footswitch i only get it when i trying to get the hx to switch the channels
