My bad. Yeah...I went through that, too. I ran through some tests with the folks at Strymon and they were surprised about the "glitch", themselves. Seems that when you power off the board and then turn it on again, the Mix parameter on the Favorite switch reverts to whatever's on the main unit's knob (as you said). I found two solutions that worked for me: 1) BEFORE you power off your board (or whatever pedal(s) you're using), you click your Favorite switch off and then turn the main El Cap unit to bypass. When you power the board (or El Cap) up again, the pedal will show as being on but bypassed and the Favorite switch will be off. When you click it in for effect, the Favorite switch should have the preset you arranged, originally. 2) If (when, heheheh) you forget to do step 1, you just click the Favorite switch to the off position, bypass El Cap, and then activate El Cap and then the Favorite switch, again. Your preset should be there. Give it a shot and let me know how it works for you.
