    Using a preamp with the helix?

    I usually play through my helix and send the 1/4 inch out to a monitor as a quieter practice rig. I have a Mesa mark v 25 that I also love and I was wondering if I can just connect the effects loop send to the helix and use my loaded cab irs and listen using my monitor? Is there any separate setting I’d have to use and can I connect my amp directly to where I’d usually plug my guitar in? Also, the mark v has a built in dummy speaker load so I wouldn’t have to worry about that.

    Helix products: v2.70 now released

    Known Issues: Loading a Distortion > Kinky Boost block can sometimes result in an audible thump That cracked me up! I don't think that's a reference to an actual audio artifact. Lol :-)

    Hd500 setlist switch. Help!

    Hi. Where can I get a replacement setlist knob/pot assembly? I don’t kneed a knob, I need the entire part. I’m a working player with an hd500 and a Variax. I work in several bands and this combination/gear is vital to my gigs. I have a setlist knob that got snapped off. It’s the top left push/scroll switch/knob. The shaft of it got snapped and I can still use the foot switches on the bottom, but I cannot go between setlist a now or use the knob for saving, scrolling, etc. can someone help with this ASAP.

  6. I've been a pretty hard-core IR guy for a long time but recently started using stock cabs (because HX Edit was late at Stomp release and I was forced to use stock cabs). Long story short - I now love stock cabs, I just wasn't very good at making good cab and mic choices. This leads me to a strange situation I encountered. If you make a preset with an amp (not amp+cab) - put two cabs after it in a split path then merge immediately after the cabs. Follow that by anything else (delay, reverb, whatever - might need to be stereo, not sure). Then if you copy that preset exactly. Delete the two stock cabs and replace them with a single dual-cab block. In the dual cab block, duplicate exactly the settings you have in the two separate cabs in the original preset. You might need to lower the pseudo-merge block in the original preset by about 2db to account for the volume difference. Now A/B those two presets using headphones so you can hear the nuance. Should those two presets produce identical results? I'm 100% convinced they are different. Should they be the same?

    Clipping with Spider V 60 Watt

    I have a Spider V 60 Watt I'm not really into the line 6 presets, I'm looking to build my own sound. With Spider V remote on my laptop I open User 1 and choose an amplifier in PC remote, no effects. I'm using headphones as I live in a condo and even at a very low sound level I get clipping. I turn down the guitar, I turn down the amp volume, I turn down the master volume and I get clipping. What's going on?

    Yeah....that wasn't hypocritical.
  9. Hi, folks, I'm thinking about a true bypass effect loop box using mechanical relays commonly used in the modern pedals. I know that the Pedal/EXT AMP jacks on HX Effectrs will control the switching of the channels and the reverb on the guitar amp. So, I'd like to make a switching box using relays on my own to switch on and off of the external pedal along with the presets without relying on the MIDI. Would anyone tell me the control voltage and maximum ampere the tip and the ring of the Pedal/EXT AMP can provide? Thank you in advance.

    Long Press midi command for Tuner

    Midi controller question: how to play nicely with both a Snapshot Down (Press) and Tuner (Long Press) commands on a Midi preset? I use a Morningstar MC6 for reference. I first tried with the Snapshot Down first on Press, then Tuner on Long Press, then Snapshot Up on Long Press. This way, using the Tuner automatically puts me back to the original Snapshot (the HX Stomp only has 3). Then I remembered I could swap the commands: the Long Press for tuner first, and then the normal Press for Snapshot Down. Problems: * The second solution here did not work. The Snapshot still gets changed * I also don't know how to make either 'Tuner' or 'Snapshot Down' display on the Midi unit, base on whether I used a Long or normal Press trigger... Any thoughts? Thanks! Another issue I couldn't fix in my Midi adventures: using the Record command on the Looper automatically triggers the Play command. I may be able to go past it by... not having a Play button, and having a dedicated Stop and Undo button, rather than Toggles. To-be-tried.

    Heheheh how are you so mad at this, it's L6's pedalboard, they can do with it whatever they want. Are you gonna tell me that you've already used up ALL of the effects and amps and possibilities available? Sounds like you need to get better at making patches.
  14. This has come up before and I step in doodoo every time I talk about Native not sounding like Helix does (to me), using the "same" expensive UAD Apollo Audio Interface. In other words, I use my Helix Rack every time I record guitar and use Native only when I am inside a DAW just playing around noodling for sounds. Many others swear by Native, however, so this could be just me and or my setup. I "also" had an Eleven Rack, and liked the sounds it produced. That said, I dont think it holds a candle to Helix (or my Kemper Profiler).

    I know, I said I was "outta here". But this thread is like a trainwreck, I just can't look away! You've made it abundantly clear that you don't care about anybody's needs but your own, that everyone else's opinions are BS, that we're all a bunch of fascists and fanboys, and that you couldn't care less about our feelings. Is it really any wonder that most of our reactions are negative? I get it. You're not a very nice person. PLEASE GO AWAY! Sincerely, Fascist snowflake fanboy

    That's it???

    And I'm the one that has a problem with opinions? lol... And yes you did exactly what Hamm stated, you jumped to conclusions, many times. Starting with Line 6 not performing as you would have liked with the patch instead of thanking them for the efforts made, and then thinking that I'm caring enough about not standing for anything you might have said or done. Don't let me confuse you, this isn't about you at all bud. It's about not blaming the Company that just fixed stuff under the hood and added to Helix, for "nothing".

    Helix Bug Reports

    Actually, from what I see, besides the slight drifting as phil_m mentioned, the light is working pretty much in sync with the sound, the settings of the tremolo block, and when an LFO reset signal is sent. If you're getting sound on the first beat, that means the tremolo's LFO is half way through its speed setting; the tremolo's LFO will always start with no sound. It doesn't care about external timings, where you are in a measure, or beats, it just happily obeys its own settings, unless you have its speed set to note division, which relies on the snapshot, preset, or global setting for BPM. Which might be a component of why you're seeing strange things. A reset still occurs but since the BPM may have been unintentionally changed it will be completely different than what was before. That's why I previously mentioned to set the speed setting to a specific Hz value. To make matters worse, the behavior of this scenario might be variable depending on where the BPM value is coming from: global, preset, snapshot, or an external midi clock. I've already seen that when Helix is receiving an external midi clock an LFO reset doesn't work, so either don't send a clock to Helix or turn Helix's global setting for this off. I don't have enough time to see if the other cases are different. Not sure, but I might have noticed that when the BPM source was set to snapshot and the tremolo's speed was set to note division and LFO resets were sent close together, the BPM changed but the tremolo's LFO acted as if it hadn't, so... If you want to send LFO resets, and change BPM within a track, I might suggest trying to use snapshots. So take the external midi clock out of the picture, set Helix's tempo select global to per snapshot, then create different snapshots with different BPMs, and make sure the tremolo's speed setting for each snapshot is an appropriate hertz value. If I remember correctly, in the past when I used snapshots to reset LFOs, I noticed I had to first switch to a snapshot I didn't want then switch to the one I did want. If I didn't do that, the LFOs wouldn't reset. Maybe that behavior has changed since, but in any event you could switch to the snapshot and then immediately send CC64. How this whole thing might work with your other devices, you got me there. It might not work, I just don't know. Hope this post makes sense, and it's entirely possible I'm completely overthinking this whole thing. To sum up, with Helix by itself or in conjunction with a computer, I still don't see any odd behavior with resetting LFOs.

    OMG. Dude...You're replying to every single post now. Grab your Saturday, bro. Complain where it will do you some good, because I assure you that most of us are pretty much okay with the update. You''re not. Cool. Peace out, yo. Head on over to TGP with this, 'cause at this point you appear to be seeking attention.

    I do realize that you addressed it, but the fact that you jumped to that conclusion in the first place, and the fact that you continue to carry on this argument, says a whole lot about you that I'm not sure you meant to say, to be honest. You seem to have decided that since you paid for the unit, you somehow own the company. And your complaints make me wonder if you didn't buy it for something you hoped it would do some day. That is always a bad idea, imho.

    If you would bother to read, I already addressed that. And I f you can’t handle someone else having an opinion, then y’all can just go hang out in your safe space.

  23. The Ernie ball VP Jr. works excellently as a vol pedal with a regular cable (T/S), and equally as well as an expression with an Insert cable, see attached pdf file . The Ernie ball pedals are built like tanks, are very smooth and will be cheaper, I got my pedals for $85 US each. To each his own, but this is a workable solution, and won't cost what a mission pedal or line 6 costs, and some say the mission pedals feel strange. Just trying to help Good luck. insert cable w pedal.pdf

    Sorry, I was away... making music... with this disappointing box that doesn't have any new amps or FX but has 10X as many FX as I actually use and need... ... y'all were saying???
  25. So I have had an Eleven Rack for a pretty long time and like the sounds I get from it. I keep hearing awesome demos of the Helix so I’m pretty close to pulling the trigger, BUT... I’ve been using my Eleven Rack as an interface to try Helix out using Helix Native (meant to sound the same, right?) and I’m feeling massively underwhelmed by it, even when using impulse responses. I’ve purchased some Helix presets and they just don’t sound anything like they do in the YouTube videos, even when using a similar guitar and the same IR. Is this because I’m using the Eleven Rack as the interface? I boosted the input too. Will it improve when using the Helix LT interface? Cheers!

    thanks, was already headed in that direction (after reading the manual and seeing no switch..etc).

    Spikey, you really cannot stand for someone to have an opinion you disagree with, can you? I think Line 6 should have done something, and you’re perfectly happy that they didn’t. Let’s leave it at that. I don’t care how you characterize what I said or how it makes you feel. It obviously got under your skin and I really could care less about that. I absolutely stand by what I said. I love my helix, but I think Line 6 should also be adding more content. You don’t like that? Too bad!

    Helix products: v2.70 now released

    Connecting to a hub while using edit or streaming audio is probably less problematic than trying to do the update through a hub... In theory, hubs shouldn’t be a problem, but historically, they seem to cause a lot of problems. If yours is working, that’s great.
