    Thanks Buddy - hope you like its quite striking actually - talked to Mikko creator and at some point we will be able to purchase more cabs and mics :)

    Snapshot reselect - 2.8 update feature

    Global would be hard to do since snapshots are defined specifically as part of a given preset. If you have a new preset it will likely have different blocks and different setting, so you would need to define snapshots specific to it and it alone. Of course you can always define a bypass or default sound as a separate preset and select it. Of course there will be a slight delay.

    Thank you very much for finding a worthwhile contribution to this forum! I'm sure many will find this useful!

    This is one of those "extra 5%" things and, as cruisinon2 said, another rabbit hole. I'll pass.

    Best speakers for Helix at home

    Rockit 5s worked well for me once I realized that you have to crank them. At lower vol levels they get distorted (as does everything else I've tried). I have a small practice room so I feel your pain. Just make sure your output is set to Line.

    Hx Stomp and Hx Effects Midi

    The thing I don't know, since I've never had an HX Effects, is if it would be a one tap process or a two tap. Clearly the HX Effects can send the needed signal to the HX Stomp. Your choices for the Stomp are: CC#69, Value 0 (Snapshot 1) CC#69 Value 1 (Snapshot 2) CC#69 Value 2 (Snapshot 3) CC#69 Value 8 (Next Snapshot) CC#69 Value 9 (Previous Snapshot) Ideally, if you can assign the snapshot #1 button on your HX Effects to ALSO send to the Stomp CC#69, Value 0 then that would be ideal because when you press one button it both tells the HX Effects to go to 1 AND sends the same signal to the Stomp. Unfortunately, if that duality isn't an option (i.e. the button can ONLY do HX Effects snapshots or send midi messages) then you're probably stuck with a two button option. In that case, to save on buttons, the first thing I'd try is to reserve one of the HX Effects buttons to send the Stomp the midi message of CC#69 Value 8 so that by tapping it you can quickly cycle through the Stomp's snapshots. If you have another button to spare, then it'd be a good idea to do the CC#69 Value 9 message so that you can back track if you go too far. There is one other crazy option you could try as a last resort. There are midi Y cables (see the link below) so that with the Y cable, and two additional midi cables, you could essentially try feeding the midi command that the HX Effects sends back on itself. If that method worked, then you'd simply use three buttons on the HX Effects that sends the same signal to both the HX Stomp and the HX Effects, which would be: CC#69, Value 0 (Snapshot 1) CC#69 Value 1 (Snapshot 2) CC#69 Value 2 (Snapshot 3) https://www.amazon.com/SinLoon-Splitter-Pin-Male-Extension-synthesizer/dp/B01M3RH5GI/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=midi+Y+Cable&qid=1566493330&s=gateway&sr=8-3

    Best speakers for Helix at home

    I use a dbx driverack PA (+ Driverack RTA-M) between the Helix and my PA speakers. It was not cheap, but it works well to get a good FRFR sound with PA speakers / in different rooms. With the RTA-M and the 8 band autoEQ you can measure the boxes easily. ...too bad the Helix has not intigrated something like that, the global EQ is not very useful for me

    Helix Stomp ASIO USB ReAmp

    It's just cosmetic, it works as you stated. A DAW is a complicated piece of SW, and vendors should try to avoid needless confusion. Blaming L6 for a badly written driver when they're the only vendor with a problem is the kind of thing that drives users to other products.
  11. The Stomp could already handle considerably more blocks than the six they allow it to. They chose to limit it to six not based on DSP limits. As for is it possible, of course . . . but that drives up the cost of the unit, and if it gets too much pricier you're in LT territory. I don't think it will happen.

    Helix Stomp ASIO USB ReAmp

    IT's just group them into stereo input for some dumb reason. Can you select individual mono channels from the track I/O?

    Helix Stomp ASIO USB ReAmp

    rd2rk: Thanks for posting those screen shots. Really illustrative. So does that mean that in Cakewalk we effectively lose half the output possibilities, or is it that just a cosmetic thing and there are other ways to get the same functionality by using the track dropdowns that show up as Left 1, right 1, left 3 right 3 etc etc?

    Snapshot reselect - 2.8 update feature

    I was hoping there would be a feature here where you could just have one "global" Snapshot. So pressing any active Snapshot would take you to, say your bypass sound or whatever you chose as your global one. This would be similar to how the GigRig G2 works.

    Control Helix with MIDI controller

    A combination of the two approaches will likely be ideal for OP, but if I had a bad back, I'd have definitely gone with the Rack!

    Control Helix with MIDI controller

    I don't have a bad back, but the reason I bought the Helix Rack is so I would not have to bend over to change things. I love having my rack at shoulder level on my rig....I just reach over and tweak away.

    Helix Stomp ASIO USB ReAmp

    Windows doesn't have an ASIO Control Panel. That's a program provided by the device's creators, in this case, L6. You may be thinking of the Windows, Sound Panel, but that has nothing to do with ASIO. Typically, an ASIO panel will show the device's buffers and other settings, while the Preferences screen in your DAW shows the Input/Output configuration. Below are screenshots of Cakewalk and Reaper: And the ASIO Control Panel and Windows Sound Panel in LIVE If you open the HX Stomp Control Panel from Windows Control Panel you'll see it's the same as the above, provided by L6:

    Control Helix with MIDI controller

    I’ve used my Helix’s on-the-fly editing while playing with my band without any problems. It’s great for tweaking a sound during a tune and also having a funky back myself I really appreciate it. You can change a parameter rapidly with the expression pedal (which, as you say, is a bit tricky to use for precise settings) or incrementally via the footswitches (which allows very precise setting). Wouldn’t using a tablet mean not playing while tweaking? Surely you could only use it between tunes. Perhaps this is what the OP meant?

    HD PRO X not switching Variax

    Check the edit page on the HD Pro unit, there is a Force/Don't Force option. This tells the unit whether it controls Variax Models, or whether the Variax controls itself. Check the manual on that further. It's easy to forget that function is there.

    Looking for Backtrack+mic Firmware !

    Try re-installing the latest Line 6 driver.
  22. Maybe a complete reset 9+10? (You lost all presets, IRs, ...!!!) See if it works, and then load your backup.
  23. I tried, but it doesn't help.T.T
  24. it's a bug, you have to reset the globals (FS5&6)
  25. After updating to 2.81, i can`t quit snapshot footswitch mode, even with switching preset. The 'cancel' switch does not works... In addition to this problem : when I press bank down/up at first time, it goes opposite way.

    FS on/off with pedal MIDI controler

    Your MIDI controller is set to send the CC in "Momentary" mode. Switch to "Latching" mode. That will send the ON message (127) on the first press, and the OFF (0) message on the next press.
