So as I see it, Rom effects are just presets that are permanently saved in the internal memory, Bank effects are global FX and instruments FX apply to individual instruments.

When a Rom effect is edited it becomes the Bank effect.

Now I just can't seem to figure out how to select what effect is the instrument effect.
In EDIT/EFFECTS you can select which sub-preset or VARIATION for that given preset and then you can go ahead and fine tune those settings. But how do you change the overall instrument effect (i.e. delay instead of reverb) without going to ROM and subsequently changing the bank. Or how do you delete the bank effect altogether?

I've read about the Bussing a little. I think I get how to route TO the buses but I don't understand how to set what each bus affects.

It seems to me like there can only be one effect per instrument unless you use the preset combinations.

Sorry to ramble but this has been a white elephant in the room since I got this thing, while slowly but surely I've been able to solve other problems...

Appreciate the help.
From what i know, you can only run 1 FX algo at a time. This is so you can modulate the parameters in real time, using the wheel, pitch, etc.
This value is usually at the end of the parameters on each FX, scrolling horizontal.
Certain FX like chor reverb DDL gives you 3 options per instrument-
all 3, only chorus or only ddl. there is no "dry" bus, unless you mix down the delay or chorus on the algo.

The only time you can "layer" 2 FX is by resampling (like if you wanted a distortion through flange). The instrument effect will show up when you select the resampled instrument (in this case, [distort.] guitar amp 1). This information with the setting is saved with the instrument and shows up, i guess if you wanted to work with the same effect for another instrument at a later time.
It seems to cause confusion, because the INST. effect shows up, but i believe it is the bottommost selection, then when you scroll up through the FX, you are back in the onboard FX again.

There is a great deal of sound design you can do with this, though with the resampling and parameter controls; you can resample indefinitely through FX over and over again. Once you get accustomed to the interface and menu/buttons in your head, it is not as difficult as it looks.
