Wanted to add an update on this, not trying to go off topic as I think it's still relevant being we were discussing the effect spillover thing. I found out quite by accident watching a YouTube vid a kickass way around the spillover with the GT-10. All I need to do is put the effects on Channel 1 and simply switch to Channel 2 (which can have different effects or just be clean) and the effects will continue to decay. I've tested it and it works flawlessly, no dropout or click or anything... smooth as butter.
It's still not the same as switching presets but it's still a viable way to go from one sound to another and keep the decay's going. The cool thing about the HD500 is you can assign *one* footswitch to do two functions such as turn off both delay and reverb. I haven't checked it out yet but I think the GT-10 can only control one parameter per pedal. But still, switching to another channel means I can go from a sound with 5 FX (for example) to none with one pedal press and keep the tails decaying. Pretty kickass nonetheless. Shit, I kind of want both... keep my GT-10 AND get the HD500. Just might be weird juggling two units.
