If the programming and channel switching of the AMP1 Mercury or Iridium Edition does not work when using a MIDI controller, the most likely reason is that an ambiguous MIDI command - or even several MIDI commands - are being sent one after the other.
HX Effects: Turn off MIDI clock and MIDI PC TX
By default, the HX Effects sends two MIDI lines: before the actual MIDI command, the sender address of the preset is sent. This must be turned off in the HX Effects, otherwise the AMP1 Mercury/Iridium Edition will not be able to process the commands: Turn off MIDI clock in the Global Settings as well as MIDI PC TX on the 3rd screen of the MIDI settings!
