    Headrush FRFR

    If you're worried about "boomy", get a short PA stand. That's what I have my FRFR112 on and it's not "boomy" at all.

    Headrush FRFR

    It's entirely possible that they DID make some guitar specific adaptations to the Headrush version vs the Alto version, but the support group isn't allowed to be more specific. Seems a silly way to go about it, considering how many people want to know. Anyhow, I'm happy with my FRFR112, sounds great!

    Get into your Line 6 account, there is a section marked "Support". There is one last possibility,... on the serial number there is A891x, then 4 digits after that. What are those four digits?

    Can Helix be used as a serious Audio Interface?

    Anyone who uses a DAW and doesnt use direct monitoring (like in an overdub) will notice that Line 6 helix USB driver isnt great for low latency In fact Line 6 has Never had a decent low latency USB driver for any product (ASIO ro MAC) All that said if you use the helix and monitor using direct monitor 9ie no dubs no plug-ins) you wont notice an issue. ..there are tons of great low latency high quality Audio devices out there..for me i connect Helix via spdif to my focusrite Liquid 56. works swell

    Yeah, it should be fine. Reviews say it's pretty sturdy, and it looks like it comes with the appropriate cable so that's not a bad deal either.

    I think that the wall main isn't really the problem...since it is 220v like the country from which I bought the amp (France)

    Line 6 should recieve an award....

    Definitely agree! Wanna hear something scary? I occasionally use it for Praise and Worship--it's good for that too!

    Tips for smoothing out Reverb tails

    Also, never underestimate the power of the mix to wash out any "trailing-off" effects! When I first unboxed the Strymon Big Sky, "man, this is just too much!" Really wanted to dial a lot of it back. But the rest of the band loved it, and the mix really took care of it anyway.

    It is very specific. And one for each wall mains region.

    As I understand doesn't need to be the same exact model? I thought it was a very special model made exclusively for this amp without any chance to find an equivalent ...keep in mind that I'm just collecting information and I understand that such procedure needs to be done by a professional. If it is the case I may let the chance to a pro to study the bad part in my amp in order to find an equivalent. I found some info on the different input / outputs it gives.. but nothing regarding the internal winding
  15. To contrast, I'm 58 but I work mostly with 25-35s, and the huge majority of them really love our Country, and really respect us Vets and thank us for our service regularly. Your story was GREAT, thanks for that, and thanks for your Service! I guess that the only guilty feelings us later vets have is that our Vietnam-era "big brothers and sisters" really got the shaft, while we were treated as heroes from the beginning. However--to stick with this thread--an open box means that someone probably tried it out. I try not to be too picky, since I'm gonna take it out of the box, throw it on the floor, and start stomping it straight-away! That, and the 2-yr warranty--I feel pretty good about these things--I own two of them--one for the stage, and one as a backup.

    There's a lot that goes into that. And certain tests that have to be passed for safety reasons.

    Line6 6 dt50 power transformer replacement reviews

    any chance to get the necessary techs to find an equivalent transformer? what are the important elements to take in consideration to find something equivalent ?? input / output ?

    Transformer for your area should be available, just don't know the distributors on that side of the Atlantic. Might try logging a Support Ticket, the Support people covering that region should respond.

    not thinking of just replacing with another one...thinking to bring it to industry professionals in winding different electronic equipments....still need the techs (number of winding ..ect) I know ....I sound desperate
  20. The manual reset was removed with the Flash v2.00 program, to make memory space for other things, since hardly anyone used the manual reset to begin with. Simply re-Flash the firmware to get back the factory default settings.

    It will have to be the correct transformer for your wall volt mains for your area. Be aware of the wall mains, seen too many travel to other places thinking a transformer is a transformer, and they keep blowing. I know you know better, but not everyone else does.

    mine is blowing the main fuse as soon as a power it........changed the tubes, same ...this should be the same problem....anyway to fix the power transformer instead of changing it ?? NO available parts here
  23. Hello, I've had the HX for a while now - I just recently purchased a BluGuitar Amp1. I am getting strange static and noise as I play when running through the HX to the front of the Amp1. It's like as the chord or note holds and degrades it gets static and noise that's almost as loud as the original note. If I remove the HX - the noise goes away. I have a tube amp I also use and run the HX into the front of, no strange noise and static. I can also run the HX into my computer interface and have no problems. I can run from my volume pedal (2 cables) and I get no noise either. I contacted BluGuitar, they are saying it's a known HX effects issue (noise floor issue I'm assuming). I do not have this problem other than in front of their product. Any ideas what it could be? It's almost like the Amp1 does not like the output of the HX possibly. Cables are 15 ft. each. I'm on Helix version 2.54 right now. I haven't updated due to the issues people were having with 2.60 and beyond with freezing etc.
  24. Today
  25. I believe you are onto something, in that Windows 10, Chrome, has something to do with it. I have four computers - 3 laptops and a desktop. Three of them have Windows 10, on Windows 7. All four have the same audio apps, and are setup for the same external hardware (USB2 and USB3). The desktop uses a ZOOM UAC-8. It's my main audio DAW. One older laptop has only 4G of memory, runs Win7, another had 8G, came with Win8.1 and upgraded to Win10, and has been a major disappointment since day one. It's been relegated to internet use only...put out to pasture. I still use the Win7 machine for GuitarPort only - it too slow for current Chrome - too little RAM. Chrome is my browser of choice on all four. One thing Chrome does is suck up memory, specifically when Facebook is up. One session of Facebook will use as much a 2G of memory for that one process after a time...as if it's leaking. Even though there are 5 tabs open as my default web pages only Facebook does this, so I blame it for many Chrome issues. That said, Chrome itself seems to be one issue why Facebook uses so much. Other browsers use a lot when logged into facebook in them, but not as much as when in Chrome and they don't seem to go up. Facebook is alway loading data so we can scroll down to it. Regardless, Chrome uses 2-4G of RAM for the whole session, typically, all pages. Even 4G usage isn't that bad in the big scheme of things if the machine has enough physical RAM in the first place. It does seems typical usage for Chrome with my tabs. My machines are 16G (newer main laptop - came with Windows 10), 12G DAW desktop (is upgrade to Win10 from Win7). 8G (newer crappy laptop - came with Win8.1, upgraded to Win10), 4G (older laptop, came with Vista, upgraded to Win7, upgraded to Win10, wiped clean, restored to Vista and upgraded to Win7...added regkeys to prevent the automatic unwanted upgrade to Win10 which is how it happened in the first place....UGH). (I have these regkeys for DL if anyone wants them.) I've had all these machines for over a year, and three of them over 3 years each. While Chrome uses a lot of RAM, only the newer main laptop is having blue screen issues. The one difference? It's the only one the UX2 is installed on. The blue screen started after installing the UX2. I suspect two things, neither of which we can do anything about easily. 1) It's memory fragmentation. Even though there's plenty of physical RAM, if it's fragmented and someone needs big chunks, as the UX2 might need via the ASIO drivers then all bets are off. Someone is running out of contiguous memory and not handling it well. And 2) There is memory corruption in the ASIO driver. Past experience (my day job for almost 20 years) has shown many times this to be an issue with drivers that try to be super low latency while not being high CPU users. Some of the first ASIO drivers to come out years ago were great but very unstable. (Rule of thumb was to cold reboot before a session, then cold reboot when done.) Yes, it's possible and likely both of these issues are the "cause" in that they set up the scenario someone isn't handling well. There are other gotchas that are relevant. Insertion and removal of the USB Audio Device, the UX2, forcing Windows tries to flip around what it's current audio device is. I'm keeping a eye on "exactly" what the situation is then a blue screen happens. Have I removed the UX2? (usually) Is the audio app still open? (no). None of the audio apps will automatically switch to the default audio device, by design. Other apps, and Windows itself will, and sometimes it's flaky, as when using bluetooth. The blue screens are unrelated to bluetooth. Don't use bluetooth device very often. I've found that rebooting, working with the UX2, and rebooting, is making this situation better. Sorry for the book. Hope it helps us all get thinking. (especially the devs....grin)

    VOX VFS2A footswitch and HX stomp

    Thanks Kilrahi. i didn't buy it yet. As I use my HX stomp only with presets, I would like to add two more presets with this footswitch. Do you think it is ok?
