    Helix Ideascale Community Submissions

    "Pages" feature for Helix footswitches A feature that would let you set up different pages with different sets of footswitches within a preset, and use one footswitch to scroll between them. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Pages-feature-for-Helix-footswitches/943245-23508 Edit: alright, after I made the suggestion and thought of the tags to put on it, I browsed those tags, and now realize someone suggested this two years ago: https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Stomp-Mode-Additional-Pages-Sub-Menus/833042-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/MODE-Button-Switches-to-10-Additional-Stomp-Mode-Switches/874709-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/add-more-banks-of-footswitches-in-stompbox-mode/900936-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/More-than-10-block-bypass-footswitch-assignments/859185-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Expandable-of-foot-switches-virtual-or-physical/931308-23508

    HX Stomp FAQ

    Mostly. It has one origin path that can be split into two stereo or mono paths (Path A and Path B) and then either reconnected within the Stomp or set out to two separate outputs. What you describe should be doable. I believe Path A would be your pitch, dynamics, and drive processing which would then exit out the main outputs. Path B would start with a FX return block which would be fed by your stereo effects from your board, and then the output would be sent out of the effects send on the Stomp. That's how I'd do it.

    Helix (Mark 2) ?

    If I read you right, this is the same boat I'm in. I'm in awe when people lay out 13 effects and make some sort of strange cosmic sound that's beautiful and appealing - but it's nothing I would do. Most of the time it's a distortion pedal and reverb, delay, chorus, or phaser on a crazy day . . . throw in one or two boutique pedals occasionally. That's why the HX Stomp largely fills my needs. BUT the one thing I still really wish it had because I know it's possible is a polyphonic drop tune pedal similar to Digitech's. I keep almost breaking down and buying the bloody thing but then I stop and hold out hope a little longer that Line 6 has one in the works.

    Helix (Mark 2) ?

    It's new processors.... not an added processor. AXFX 3 runs a pair of Keystones at 1Ghz ea AXFX 2 ran a pair of TigerSHARC's at 600Mhz ea Helix runs a pair of SHARC's at 450Mhz ea Processors are only part of the equation so that is meaningless on it's own... but yes, eventually the HELIX will need an upgrade in that department to keep up.

    Get HX Stomp or keep 1484?

    I've had similar problems on Facebook. It seems like the Facebook marketplace only caters to certain groups (cars, crafts, clothes). To buy my stomp, I tried to sell my Pod HD 500x through Facebook marketplace where I've successfully sold a car and other items before. I had absolutely ZERO hits and I had it listed at about $150 which is low. My Pod was in near mint condition too because I just take care of my stuff. I listed it on Ebay and it sold at the end of 7 days for $250 (including shipping). Considering I bought it on sale for $400 and got great use out of it I felt pretty good about that. Ebay and Reverb actually cater to musicians a bit more than Facebook so I think you can do better there. Another idea would be to see what the items are going for on those groups and compare it to what your music store offered. If it's close enough or even higher, so much the better.

    Helix edit 2.30 backup failed

    I had this problem as well -- would not Export a Bundle -- sure enough ( as kinda mentioned above), I moved the destination to another folder and BAM, worked fine. I was trying to save it in the LINE6 folder with my editors, etc. no go. Made a new folder LINE6 FILES, worked like a charm.

    A Helix II? I already have two, thanks.

    free Boston patch ?

    Thanks for pointing that one out. It's really quite good. Very appreciated.

    Helix (Mark 2) ?

    I'm getting ready to haul out my HD500 to compensate for processing power limitations. Aside from that, there is really no need at this point for a Double-Helix. Unless they're adding a salsa dispenser. That would be awesome.

    HX Stomp FAQ

    So the HX Stomp has two paths? Two stereo or mono paths? I'm trying to decide how I would use it with my board. I would like to use it as pitch, dynamics and drive processing in front of my board, AND as my stereo amp after my stereo effects on the board.

    HX Stomp needs 8 blocks

    If it had patch spillover, it would be a non-issue for me, but I understand that this product wasn't designed for my use (even though its 98% of the way there) and good job on Line 6 for getting me to buy a $300 more expensive product!

    HX STOMP- Expression Pedal Setup.

    In response to your questions: 1. The cord linked below will work perfectly: https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-STP-203-inch-Insert-Cable/dp/B000068O1P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1542141815&sr=8-1&keywords=Hosa+STP202 2. Most expression pedals (and I assume one designed by Line 6) should work as a regular expression pedal for the Stomp. I can't say that I KNOW this though. You would hope Line 6's own pedal would work, but at the same time the one you listed is a pretty old model. It might be time to upgrade first, BUT before you do buy the TRS cable and test it out. However, for maximum use of the expression pedal options (i.e. in order to have dual control of both the wah and volume/block toggle) you want to use the more expensive one given in the manual: https://www.amazon.com/Mission-Engineering-Helix-Expression-Switch/dp/B019WJ0BS0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1542141924&sr=8-1&keywords=mission+engineering+helix+expression+pedal 3. I wish I could be more explanatory than the directions. Have you tried a youtube video? 4. See the video above. You can set it up to use two pedals at once. It's just a question of what you're really after.

    Helix (Mark 2) ?

    Essentially Helix + Stomp IS the competitor to Axe 3. All Axe 3 did was add another processor, not a new processor so adding the stomp would be the same thing. I personally don't see any driving need to attack a new generation of modeler until there is some significant leap in the underlying DSP technology. Who knows when that will happen, although I'm sure it will at some point.

    HX Stomp needs 8 blocks

    I understand what you're saying (and I've had a moment or two where I've been like, "Blast, if I only had ONE more block . . .). However, I likewise don't think that the number of blocks was arbitrary. Even with dynamic DSP in the Helix, there's a reason they didn't give you 60 blocks and let you just deal with it when you max out at 21 blocks. So it is with the Stomp. If I remember right, Line 6 states in the FAQ pinned at the top that six blocks was carefully chosen to do many things, including not back themselves in a corner for future updates. Considering I've already had moments where the DSP told me that I didn't have enough left to use a specific block, I get the feeling it couldn't handle too much beyond six. Nevertheless, as a user of the Stomp I get where you're coming from.

    Double playback into speakers and daw.

    And I use a nanoKontrol for the DAW UI, so I don't have to wrestle with the nasty mouse......

    Yup... that and I'm lazy...I want a master volume right in front of me at arm's length, not on the floor. ;)

    Helix plug-in on MacOS - permanent spinner

    Benvigil - That solved the problem. Thank you. It was the session key. Glad to be able to test this thing out again.

    Double playback into speakers and daw.

    This is also how I do it, using a Focusrite 18i20. While the Helix works fine as an Audio Interface, you're limited by it's routing capabilities. It also has slightly higher latency than the Focusrite (2nd gen) and many other AI's. Unless you're using additional effects in your DAW, there really isn't any reason to monitor recording Helix through the DAW, you're just adding latency, which is why I suggested the Channel Monitoring switch.

    HX STOMP Premium Patches

    It's a different set, but with HX Stomp it will not work in HX Effetcs. I thought that the HX series devices are compatible. For me it is a waste of money.

    Factory patches level setting

    Ok yeah got that. But if you have made all your patch levels right at home with headphones, then when go to a rehearsal room with the band, you should expect the levels to still be right, as long as the white level is at the same position it was when you saved the patches. Right?

    Double playback into speakers and daw.

    Are you using some real-time FX in your DAW on top of an already effected signal from the Helix?
  24. cruisinon2

    Double playback into speakers and daw.

    You could use a separate interface to get what you want, but latency may become a problem depending on the unit, and your computer's horsepower. I run Helix into a Focusrite 2i4, which has a feature they call "direct monitoring", but it's actually a blend control of the direct line-in from Helix, and the playback from the DAW. You can use the blend control with the DAW's direct monitoring turned off, or set it to 100% playback, with the DAW's direct monitoring on... I've done it both ways and honestly, I can't tell the difference. The Focusrite stuff is pretty decent...I think they boast something like a 2-3 ms round trip latency. Whatever it is, it's minimal, and only becomes a problem if you try to blend the direct signal with the playback while the DAW's direct monitoring is turned on. That'll give you both signals and an annoying chorus-like effect.
  25. Is the monitor function of your DAW switched off?
  26. rd2rk

    Double playback into speakers and daw.

    Sorry, I misread. If you want to monitor the Helix while recording, then the Channel monitoring switch is your only option.
