I know the capability is in the somewhere. As you can see I'm old school in my thinking.
If you create a basic amp and speaker patch that you like, you can then add effects blocks to it -- chorus, overdrive, delay, etc. -- and then turn those on and off using a MIDI controller. You program the MIDI controller to send the proper CC (control change) number to the AxeFX that will bypass or activate the effect. Let's say, for example, CC 40 is the control number to bypass the Delay 1 block. If you add a delay block to your patch, and leave it bypassed, when you step on the controller, it will turn the delay on, or off. 41 can be a drive block, 42 can be a phaser, 43 can be a tap tempo etc. etc. etc. Somewhere in the manual it will list what those defaults are, you just have to program them into your controller pedal. Don't ask me how, it's been too long since I messed with mine. I just know that stepping on the 4th button on my Ground Control Pro will turn the overdrive on or off on any patch I have on.
Once you have a certain delay or chorus or whatever block that exists on one patch, you can import it into other patches. That's in the manual, too.

You cannot. AxeFX 2 models, presets, impulse response files, etc., only work on the AxeFX 2. It doesn't actually have a hard drive in it, it's a chip.
