    Smooth high-cut sweep - possible?

    1. Yes, correct, 2. No practical workaround.

    Helix Backup if I sell my Amps?

    I see this has been asked before but not for a while so I wondered about updates So Im a fairly new Helix and Powercab user, love the sounds and flexibility I am getting at home, rehearsals and gigs. So much so that Im considering selling my amps (DRRI, Blues Jr and AER compact). However I'm THAT guy in my band who brings 2/3 spare mics, stands, leads, guitars, you name it, Ive always taken the blues jr to gigs just in case the DRRI ever crapped out (it never did) Now the Helix is by all accounts reliable, but it is at heart a computer, a computer that you put on the floor in an atmosphere with 150 drunk people dancing.... So if something bad should ever happen mid gig what do you guys take as backups? This is my first modelling setup so I dont have much experience- Ive been looking at the HX stomp and firehawk, but I also see that used HD500x are very cheap on ebay... Thanks in advance

    Helix Stomp too much treble.....

    Hi players, just tried my Helix Stop with my Marshall JVM 410 JS. I plugged in straight to my return to just use the power amp. I used a preset that I run usually direct to my studio monitors and switched of the IR I don't use excessive high or low cuts on the IR and the EQ of the Line 6 2204 Model was also normal (Bass 3,5 Mid 7, Treb 6,5 Presence 5,3 ). What I found going straight into the power amp was such a harshness that I had to turn down Treble and Presence to zero. BTW I use a Bogner 2x12 that sounds perfect with my Marshall everything at noon. I have the input impedance on the helix on auto and tried with line and inst level on the output with same results. If the sound difference is that huge how can I run a preset direct FOH and use my Amp on stage.... Any ideas? Regards, Marco

    Helix to recreate unique pedals.

    Gotcha, understood. I just watched the video in forum window and so didn't see the content in in the description. It’s way cool regardless!

    G10S signal issues

    I have the same issue with a recently purchased 10s. Quick cut outs every so often. I don't gig, only using it at home. My router is about 25 feet away. I do need to run 2.4GHz for one of my items that doesn't have 5 GHz. I also have a G10 that I purchased recently as well with no problems, and a G50 without problems. I think there is an issue with the G10s models that needs to be addressed with a firmware update. I run it on auto. Maybe I should try selecting a channel.

    First Helix! But...

    Roll off as many highs as you can going into the amp. The distortion will restore a lot of the highs, but it will be harder to set up a feedback path. Also rolling off highs after the amp can help. Many models have resonances that peak considerably higher than the rest of the audio, and these can promote feedback. A parametric notch can sometimes solve this. Good luck! Just remember that high gain is HIGH GAIN. There are limits as to how much you avoid feedback with that much gain.
  9. I put 2 songs in my music website: "A Mystery to Me" is the song on top (no amp modeling on the intro acoustic guitar), and "Catch You Somehow" is the next song down. One song uses Roland COSM amp modeling for guitar, and the other song uses PodXT amp modeling. Can you tell which is which? Please tell me how you like the music and how it can be improved. Here is my link: https://www.soundclick.com/bands3/default.cfm?bandID=224436

  11. OK, here are the answers: "Really True Too" uses Roland COSM amp models, and "That Great Day" uses PodXT amp models.

    Mesa Boogie Mark V and Helix

    Thanks for this! I run my Helix through a Mark III that I LOVE, but I've been drooling over the Mark V for a while now and do hope to go that way someday soon. I run 4 cable and have been using the EBTech Hum Eliminator for a while. Great stuff

    It's always hard to know exactly what type of noise you're hearing. Did you try the noise gate? Is it THAT type of noise, or is it something else?

    Smart Harmony

    That would be awesome! I bought it thinking it had it in there already, but no. Instead, they put a bunch of worthless synth things in there, oh well

    Glad it worked for you! More tips to come.

    Tip: Make a Mute Button for Multiple Paths

    You'd be surprised at what I DON'T know!! All I know about "json" is it looks like a typo for someone who was trying to spell "Jason." :)
  20. Just save a patch with no amp and all of the effects off.

    Best way to connect to computer/daw

    yeah thats what i thought i would end up doing, thanks a lot for your help.

    Best way to connect to computer/daw

    I would use either the XLR or 1/4" output from your Helix LT to the apogee (they both sum to mono when only the L/MONO output is used). Connect headphones to the apogee if you want to monitor the vocal as well as the guitar.

    Ha no worries, so what can i do now? phones out from helix to input in on my interface?
  24. silverhead

    Best way to connect to computer/daw

    You're right - see my edited post above. Sorry. ..... you're right - you can't use two interfaces simultaneously. .........

    Best way to connect to computer/daw

    i didnt think the LT had a mic input?
  26. silverhead

    Best way to connect to computer/daw

    No - you only use the Helix as your interface. Both the guitar and mic are connected to your Helix inputs. You play/record guitar and vocals simultaneously using only Helix .... oops .... I was thinkg Helix Floor. Sorry. The LT model does not have a mic input. My apologies for the confusion. .... and you're right -

    Best way to connect to computer/daw

    thanks, yes i understand that but i didnt know i could use two interfaces at the one time, the helix for the guitar, and the apogee for the vocals. is that what you are saying? thanks again.

    Best way to connect to computer/daw

    You don't need your Apogee if you use the Helix as your audio interface. You just need to configure your DAW to use Helix as well - but this is often automatic after you connect Helix via usb to your computer. Once connected your Helix is your computer soundcard (so connect your headphones to Helix) and, optionally, its audio interface as well.
