    Helix Lt with vintage fender twin reverb

    Maybe. Maybe not. I use a $300 Headrush FRFR112, sounds great TO ME. I also have an Alto TS210 that sounds fine (the FRFR112 is better for Bass than the TS210). But the Geminis should be just fine. Per my post above, if you've done all you say, could be you just don't like the Helix. It happens.

    HX FX using headphones - How?

    Line Outs to a small mixer or headphone amp should do it. Home stereo AUX in should also work.

    Helix Lt with vintage fender twin reverb

    Guys thx for all the replies I do sincerely appreciate all negative or positive. To clarify the signal chain I created uses no amp cab simulation from the helix. That would make no sense as I’m utilizing an amp / cab. When I attempted running through the PA speakers they are quite new 1500 watts each powered Gemini speaker cabinets with internal crossovers. We run full band through these speakers. In that scenario I did try numerous speaker / cab combinations etc. Would a high dollar FRFR sound that much different than these Gemini’s?

    HX Stomp as a very simple midi controller

    The MIDI command stuff takes very little ROM space so no expense. They've stated they didn't want to make the manual longer and more intimidating, so left the Command Center stuff out. But I say bring it on.

    Tip: Make a Mute Button for Multiple Paths

    I tested the method out with my previously stated acoustic sim to electric crunch each on their own path with the volume blocks at the beginning of each path both assigned to the same footswitch. Works like a charm. Thanks again.
  9. Hi I am truly sorry for yet another settings help but I run 3 different setups between my amp, HD500 and pedalboard so I'm making a chart to keep myself lined up. I also bring all the gear in case I have issues, I have a backup plan. Setup 1- I use my HD500 alone thru the FoH and use the modelers if the stage is small or need a fast setup Setup 2- I use my HD500 in 4CM with my blackstar stage mkii (most used setup currently) Setup 3- I use my blackstar with my regular pedal board So I would love a guru to just check over my settings because although everything seems fine, it might not be right. What would my FX loop level be set to on my amp in all 3 setups, I have the +4 or -10 choice for loop level on the amp. Now for HD500 settings regarding #1 and #2. Line or AMP on the top? Guitar IN on normal opposed to PAD on top I assume? Line or STOMP on the backside? MASTER volume knob on the HD goes to full 100% wet? within the page setups......COMBO and Line/studio selection I also read having the mixer levels in the software up slightly to +3 works good so that's what I have for each patch. Welp I do thank you all for the read and any comments. Always concerned for tone zap like the old boss units, so trying to be diligent here. Love the versatility!

    Connecting HX FX to my PC (sound) - How?

    I think you're gonna be a little disappointed with the results from the setup you've described. Your basic tone comes from your amp, or amp modeler. The HX FX has no amp modeling...so without your real amp somewhere in the vicinity, all you'll get by plugging the HX into your PC is your raw guitar signal, plus whatever effect(s) you've chosen. It'll sound nothing like what you'd hear playing the same patch through your amp, and won't be terribly useful for dialing in sounds. Now you could use a software based amp modeler plug-in to get an amp tone to work with... but those PC speakers aren't gonna help your cause much either. In terms of sound quality, most PC speakers typically fall somewhere between an old transistor radio, and two tin cans on a string...;) It's really not the best way to go. A small pair of near-field studio monitors will be an infinite improvement, and won't break the bank.

    HX Stomp as a very simple midi controller

    Yeah, that reason is how they made it cost less. My suggestion would be to use the LT, as it can send and receive Ableton MIDI messages. The new update is also going to allow you to use regular keyboard buttons, so if you already know the mapping via keyboard, you can use that instead of MIDI NOTE/CC/PC messages.

    HX Stomp as a very simple midi controller

    Yes, for some crazy reason Line 6 left the MIDI send CC features out of the Stomp. I hope they put it back in at some point. Its the reason I sent the unit back, but I'd buy it again in a heartbeat if they added the MIDI stuff because I love the footprint compared to my bigger HX Effects. As @rd2rk mentions, the Stomp does send program change MIDI info, if that's all you need.

    VDI wireless?

    Bottom line is this: They may have pieces... but it's all or nothing. Carrying audio is the easy part. If it can't send model/tuning changes to the guitar, then it's worthless. And the fact that it ain't gonna be cheap anytime soon is the biggest hurdle.

    HX FX using headphones - How?

    We're gonna need more info to help you... what else are you using the HX with? There must be an actual amp or amp modeler somewhere in the equation. The HX by itself isn't good for much unless you're interested in just a raw guitar signal with FX... your basic amp tone has to come from somewhere.

    HX Stomp as a very simple midi controller

    Unfortunately, HX Stomp only RESPONDS to CC, and only SENDS PC. Worse yet, since it lacks the Command Center functions, it will only send a default PC when loading a preset, they can't be assigned. For what you want to do you'll either need the full Helix Floor, the Helix LT, or HX Effects.
  21. Hi Line6 I’m looking into the “HX Stomp” as a backup guitar amp system as well as midi foot controller sending some simple midi messages to control Ableton for a touring band. I’m having a hard time finding out the midi out capabitlities of the unit. Am I correct in thinking that it only sends midi program changes? No midi notes or CC through midi output? Would I be able to send midi notes via the 5pin out on HX Stomp placing different midi messages on each foot switch? I basicly only need to be able to map one button to next marker and one to previous marker. So I could for example have. 1. PC mapped to “previous marker” 2. no midi 3. PC mapped to “next marker” Thanks EDIT: After a bit more research it seems that Ableton doesn't even support midi mapping of PC messages. So it has to be midi note or cc. Is this impossible to achieve in this one little handy box then?

    upgrade advice needed!

    If budget allows.... go for a Helix Floor or LT and call it a day! Just my opinion here... but if your XT Live still works fine and all you can afford is an HD500x..... spend the little extra money on an HX Stomp and run it in the loop if the XT Live. Use the Stomp for all the amp models and a few extra effects.... and keep the XT for the stuff you like (delays, modulation, etc...). Connect a midi cable between the two and the patch changes on the XT will change the patch on the Stomp.... just that all fall naturally (don't try to change how it works) and line the patches up to work with each other. There is nothing wrong with the HD500x.... as PianoGuy says above, if you can't get a tone that works with that the problem is not the device. BUT - the HX devices have IR capability and nicer overdrives/distortions/fuzz, amps/cab than the HD500 so it adds the "state of the art" things you don't like about the XTL to the things you do like about the XTL.
  23. Hi Guys, Newbie here so please go easy! I have just taken delivery of my HX FX and played it through my amp etc and all is fine. I have also connected it successfully to my PC (Windows 10) and the Line6 edit software is working fine and I have the latest driver installed also. What I am wanting to know, is it possible for me to get the sound of the HX FX coming through my PC speakers and if so how do I do it. (My PC is nowhere near my amps and gear etc). What other cables will I need from the back of the HX to the PC and would the jack from my guitar just go into the L(mono) channel? Again sorry for the question but I'd like to get it set up on my PC so I can edit sounds and hear them! Thanks Mike

    Tip: Make a Mute Button for Multiple Paths

    HX Edit will save a patch in a json format (well, I'm pretty sure it's json)... which reads very similar to XML, If you need XML there are "json to XML" converters... but I'm sure you know that already :)

    NMDRD! (Strymon BigSky content...)

    I used to own one - the 1st gen. I loved it but at that time I wasn't able to use it as much as I would have liked to so I sold it... BIG mistake! As for stereo in one cabinet being uninspiring, I think owners of the venerable Roland JC120 would disagree with you.
  26. Hi All, I was very upset as my ampli 150 became into sh** after updating via Bluetooth. I read a lot of posts, and after 20 or more attempts it went very good. so I have my ampli back :) so, Hereby I want to share with you . 1) look up for a spare iPhone (different that one where the update falied) 2) pair it, Install your app, and then flash it using a 2.50.2 version 3) I took a three hour nap and my ampli was alive again :) apologies in advance for my bad english, Just wanted to share with you, in case it helps. This was very frustrating.

    Helix Cubase DAW control + midi snapshot change

    The behavior you're describing is what happens when a NOTE message is set to MOMENTARY. If you're using a NOTE message for the STOP command, check to see if it's set to MOMENTARY.
