    WORKING SOLUTION... GEARBOX ON HIGH SIERRA

    It works on Mac OS Mojave ! I was very frustrated to cannot use Gearbox on Mac. I don't understand why line6 doesn't make it work. Thank you so much !

    Floor Pod Plus pass through?

    There is no bypass switch that I can see. You could either just turn off all of the effects or get an A/B box.
  4. So the really infuriating part is you CANNOT roll back to iOS 12.4.2 once you’re on 13.2. You can roll back from iOS 13 beta to 12 but not from the official 13. So if you haven’t updated DON’T because there is no going back now. I just spent an hour and a half with support and they confirmed that once you update it’s over. I guess if someone was clever and used some kind pf jailbreak procedure you could go back but there is no officially supported method. Also frustrating is they still sell these darn things! Crazy. I don’t believe Line6 can’t fix it. It’s their fault for not making changes to support the OS like every other manufacturer. Totall bull$hit to lay blame on Apple...but it makes future purchasing decisions simpler. I’ll never consider another Line6 product again.
  5. Hi All Just got myself a second hand Helix HX which I have firmware updated to 2.82. Everything works fine except there are only factory presets on the first 3 banks I have tried holding down footswitches 5&6 but it restores nothing to any of the other banks but before the firmware update the unit was firmware 2.8 but still had all the original factory presets missing. So just asking if any of you have come across this and found a way to restore all the original factory presets ? btw im loving this unit the sounds are awesome !.
  6. Nope. Doesn’t work. On iPhone anyhow. You absolutely cannot roll back from 13 to 12. You can roll back from 13 beta to 12 but once you install 13’s official release there is no going back even by using the .ipsw image file method you described.

    POD HD 300 problem

    Volume failure or if you need to wait for 10, 20 minutes to your HD300 show some sound or effect, the problem is in the pre-amplifier of the guitar input. First thing to do is remove the metallic shield that cover the connector and the circuit of the preamplifier. So, you must remove the four electrolitic capacitors (pictures atached), and replace-it by new ones. Chean the place with alchool. You probably will see some leaking or rust signals there. Dry the place before replace the capacitors. As old this device is, more corrosion you will see.

    Valve vs solid state power amp for Helix

    I tried pre-amp-only patches first with the pedal-baby and it actually sounded ok but certainly moving to a full amp block (obviously no cab/IR) sounded better... or at least fuller plus it gave me way more tonal options. Each time I've improved what I play the helix through, I've gone back to my patches and tweaked them a little because with each step up I hear more and more detail in the helix and I keep getting more out of it.

    Valve vs solid state power amp for Helix

    yeah - I think for a valve amp you would want to use that approach - I'll find out tomorrow when I crank the Pedal-Baby if there is actually sweet spot although I suspect it will be consistent from low to high volume.

    Footswitches does not change sound /respond

    no, there is not.. unless the 2 footswitches rows (top and bottom) are badly plugged to the main board, they could need to be replaced.. quite easy job, no soldering required, just plug and play, not expensive solution: Line 6 50-02-0234 Top And Bottom Switch PCB Assembly For HD500X _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

    Expression Pedal Not Working on HD500

    Could be.. there is a ribbon cable that connects the pedal to the main board.. the cable is connected via plugs (no soldering) but to prevent it from being accidentally disconnected it is secured in position even with hot glue .. it is unlikely that it can come off on its own due to vibrations, unless someone has previously unplugged it and removed the hot glue. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

    Can you plug-in headphones into Powercab plus 2x12?

    Not to invalidate your use case, but if you want headphones then why not plug them into your helix and have the helix model the cabinet? If you want to go back and forth between headphones and no headphones, then put the amp in FRFR mode... won't have exactly the same effect, but if you're spending time with headphones on anyway, maybe doesn't matter as much.

    212 plus

    I bought mine on Sweetwater and I'm happy with it.
  18. I am running Helix into 212 Plus. From Helix to PC212 in FRFR mode, or straight to FOH, I would usually have some effects after the speaker modeling such as EQ. Am I correct in understanding that with the PCX12 Plus this isn't possible? I.e. after the PC models the speaker, can it be sent back to helix for additional FX before coming back out the amp? Or am I misunderstanding something fundamental about the signal chain?
  19. First of all, I have a POD HD500X that works just great. Love it! Bought it 2017. Now, my second guitarist in the band, just bought exactly the same model, but from a private person who couldn't handle it. (and I can see why) The problem with his pedal is: Nothing happens when you press the footswitches (A,B,C,D) However, if I turn the knob (A in attached picture) it changes the sound as programmmed, but it does not change the light on the footswitch (B in attached picture) I've updated Flash memory and the latest drivers. Is there a function/button that turns the footswitch off/on (ABCD) according to the current sound?

    Valve vs solid state power amp for Helix

    I set the amp to it's "sweet spot" (not so important on SS amps), and set Helix Volume to control final output. Some people claim that unless you max the Helix Volume (unity gain) it sounds different. I don't hear it. YMMV.

    ReAmping with SPDIF

    Hardware Input just means you're routing an AI Hardware input to the chosen AI Output. SW Playback means you're routing the Track Output set in your DAW to the chosen AI Output. If you've got the PDF manual, attach it here and I'll see if I can help with the translation, but I couldn't find anything except the useless Quick Start guide at NI.

    Helix into Valve Amp

    Since the Blues Jr doesn't have an FX Loop, you're going to be using the Helix like a regular pedalboard, into the guitar input of the amp. Think of it that way. Just as you wouldn't want to mic an amp into your amp, you don't want to use a full Helix amp - Amp+Cab - into your Blues jr.. Doesn't mean you CAN'T, but presets made for FRFR or amps with FX Loops aren't likely to sound good. You can, however, use a Helix amp like an "amp-in-a-box" pedal. Just either use a Helix pre-amp version, or an amp without a cab, whichever sounds best to you. No rules. That said, basic rules (realities?) of modeler use: 1) All factory presets sound like crap to me/you. 2) Nobody's Customtone presets sound the way we want them to. That's because everybody else's presets are made with different guitars through different playback systems in different rooms. Now that all the Helixs are on the same core code, you can go on Customtone, search the HX FX presets, and find other people's pedalboard ideas. Unfortunately, too few people bother with descriptive notes, so it's kind of a crap shoot, and lots of them are made for amps with FX Loops. Just for kicks I DL'd a few non-FX Loop presets to try. I ran them into the front of my Egnater Tweaker 15 Combo, set up to be Fendery. They sounded awful. YMMV.
  23. Hello people! I have a POD XT PRO rack, and i want to know if its possible to mix a clean signal with a pedal distortion of the unit, with this i mean that i want to hear the clean signal of my instrument and at the same time i want to hear the pedal distortion effect engage so the result will be my guitar in clean but with the distortion of that clean signal happening at the same time i play, like blend it, is that possible? and if so, how can i do it?

    Valve vs solid state power amp for Helix

    Since I went through pretty much this exact scenario as well, I'll throw in and share my experience with it. I was using an old Mesa/Boogie 50/50 power amp in conjunction with the preamp-only model in the Helix. That worked pretty well, but man, did I ever get sick of having to lug that heavy 50/50 around. I'd heard good things about the ISP Stealth, so finally decided to get one and try it. When I first plugged the ISP in and fired it up, it sounded AWFUL, and I was sure that I'd made a mistake in buying it. That's when it dawned on me that it was a 100% clean power amp, providing little if any coloration to the tone. Switching to the full amp models in the Helix (instead of the preamp-only models that I'd been using with the Mesa) instantly solved the problem. A while later, I finally got to do the A/B test with my Helix/ISP setup, using the Cali Rectifire model, against a real live Mesa Solo Rectifier, using the same cab for both, and trying to match the amp settings and output as closely as possible. It wasn't a 100% identical tonal match, but let me tell you, it was DAMN close. Close enough to satisfy me, certainly for live purposes. Add to that the fact that the ISP weighs all of 1.2 pounds, and I'm as happy as I could be with it.

    Can't upload images

    Not sure where to post this. I've either forgotten how to or am having trouble uploading images elsewhere on this forum. I'm logged in, Try drag n drop and also using url nothing works. I get a error " there was a problem processing the upload file. Please contact us for assistance." I don't know who "us" is. I have been contacting support..but Jason seems to be clueless.
