      Do you know if its possible to used an expression as a pre-fader global volume even if both programs are turned off?

      I use the expression pedal mostly to be my main volume control. I make swells and that type of stuff with it and I also control my global level during gigs. I like it to be pre-fader because I need the tails of the reverb/delay to decay naturally even if I turn the guitar volume down. But when I’m not using the reverb or the delay I also use the expression pedal to control my volume.

      do you guys think this is possible with the H90?

      First, the easier part.  Set Tails On everywhere.  That will keep your effects decaying naturally.  It can be a special effect in it own right, with active swells using [P] In Gain.

      Disclaimer #1 –  I don’t use Global much with an expression pedal. MIDI & Aux?  More often.  I could be wrong, but I haven’t found a way to carve out a specific range of the target parameter internally.  So, a steady foot to hold on a parked position, plus steady physical pedal.

      Or – for the example below – you might suddenly find yourself in +12.0 dB boost territory.

      Disclaimer #2So far, I haven’t found a method to fulfill your Bypassed requirement, except for one workaround.  And I don’t know if you’re going to like it …

      I’m not saying there isn’t another way, but here is what I came up with, after trying out a few things.  Enter System settings – Global – dial Quick knob 1 to [P] In Gain – exit.  The caveat is … (P) Mix has to be at 100%.  You’d have to re-Save your Programs with that.  I haven’t tried everything, so my concern is that …

      Disclaimer #3Your “dry tone” may end up with some degree of coloration.

      In any case, here is a link for the Global Mapping chart.  I’ve been testing out some combinations of Mix parameters, In Gains & Out Gains for both (P) Program and the (A) + (B) Preset parameters ganged together.
