    Blind test of clean tones Helix Vs Kemper

    I don't know about the rest of you... but when I see a post that doesn't interest me I simply move on and don't say anything. I don't see any harm in doing a reality check on your personal confirmation bias... I listened & I have confidently made my choices. Are there any results? When, where or did I miss them?

    VDI wireless?

    The question thread with more technical aspects: Aside from power, there are two streams of audio downstream + control and one upstream for control so it was thought that 3 wireless channels would be required. G10 has come out since so perhaps the $999 is no longer quite so high.

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    Are you in their heads? This is nothing more than an assumption based on your own personal decision making. View the world however you like, but it makes no sense to assume that the rest of the world will share your opinion.

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    No, it's a perfectly valid "take". I don't pay money for promises, or any other intangible concept for that matter... because promises have a disturbing tendency of not being met. The average everyday, relatively inconsequential "promise" is nearly worthless, but an advertising promise? Please...roadkill has greater value. I'm laughing so hard right now, it's difficult to type through the tears... I pay for stuff that I can hold in my hand. What's in the box, is in the box...warts and all. Neither myself, nor anyone else is "entitled" to an evolving device. It's nice that development continues for a while, and I'll gladly accept whatever comes down the pike...but it's not a birthright. And you can spare me the lecture about product development.

    HX Stomp limited live usage capabilities

    Thanks for your replies! I get everything you're saying and it is true, but a few improvements would make a huge difference like: Dedicate FS's to explicit presets (like in midi) Make tuner available in Preset and Snapshot mode Dedicate FS's to switch mode (stomp -> preset etc) Make use of click again/ long press in preset mode (add action like assign a block) Anyway I'll check on the additional switches....

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    Same old story I know from my Kemper days. :-) Announced updates are often demanded with great impatience. I don't think that makes much sense. It neither accelerates the release date nor does it spread a good mood. A company would be ill-advised to expose itself to any pressure from users to adapt the planned development and testing procedure accordingly. I have bought the device as it is now and I am satisfied with it. That it will be further developed was a purchase argument for me but not a condition. There are many reasons where even planned release dates can be delayed. I am looking forward to the new features but can wait ;-)

    Use multiple G10 transmitters?

    Got my answer from Line 6 ................ Thanks for the support ticket inquiry. No, you cannot connect two at once in the way you described; the second you plug in the 2nd transmitter to charge you'll lose the previously synced connection. Kind regards, Line 6 Support

    Helix MIDI interface for AxeFX Standard via AxeEdit

    That would defeat the purpose really, i bought the rack version mainly to centralize my setup to the L6 Helix Rack, that includes editing the AxeFX through my helix midi. I've read tones of reviews glorifying the Helix as the all-in-one solution and as a capable soundcard and midi interface. Guess it's not what it was to be. thank you all for your replies, you've been of a great help. Hoping the L6 guys can integrate the full midi capabilities in the future updates, until then i'll take reviews with some grains of salt from now on

    Helix Native Problem

    For recording I don't need the XR16 yet. So no problem to pull the WLAN plug. I do not need multi track recording a thomeat the moment, as I do sometime with another Behringer XR18 and my note book in the rehearsal room I have hardly any performance problems with the I5 - Quad Processor and 8 GB RAM. My control panel does not offer as many options as on your picture. I guess because it was an update from Win 7 or its not a moble device . The GUI is different. At the i3 Win 10 (4GB) Notebook (Suface 3) it works good enough with the same norton security pack as on my desktop. It's a great pity your efforts can't help me. But thanks anyway! I will probably have to say something more impressive words to the support. :-) @Kilrahi: I stopped also fire wall and norton security while installing to test if this could be the reason.

    You know you don’t have to comment, right? Unless you have some compulsion, then you might think about seeking help. See, I can do unnecessary snark too.
  14. Thanks for reply. I use my Seymour Duncan 805 OD pedal in fx loop 2. Guitar-OD(fxloop2)-Noisegate-FXLoop1(amp)-delay-echo-->4x12 cab (v30)

    Well I won’t give out any guess work for any Line 6 user, so here is your answer. Simply hold down simultaneously foot switches 7 & 8 respectively and Helix on. You will then let go of foot switches 7 & 8, then you will see the Line 6 Helix Logo appear with a message under your Helix (s) firmware informing you “ We Will Rebuild Your Presets” and you’re good to go , however, please note that this type of Helix reset will not overwrite any and all of your own creative presets. So, with this in mind, you can reset the Helix to factory presets without overwriting/destructive, your own creative presets. Many Blessings Michael Red Crow Mulholland www.MichaelMulholland.com

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    I tend to be more laid back about all the views. Line 6 has, on occasion, advertised updates. They're competing against Fractal who has TONS of updates. Based on this, If a consumer says, "Look, they don't update enough for me in this modern world of updates, I'm getting off this train." I get that. It's not really my view but I get that. Me? I bought the Stomp without even thinking one moment about updates. Then when I found out a 2.8 was coming I was like, "Frick! I forgot that WAS a thing!" I try not to think about it, because I'm WAY excited. Still, when all is said and done, if there were never more updates I'm pretty sure I'd still consider it one of the coolest devices ever made. There really is a balance though. People can get way too rude and demanding for what should be a courteous business transaction. Now, I haven't seen that in this thread, but I have seen it. A nice contrast is the Firehawk and Firehawk 1500 forums. To my knowledge (and I have searched) Line 6 NEVER promised any type of updates on those devices besides bug fixes. They've never even indicated they could get new amps and effects. Yet, despite that, numerous consumers act like Line 6 has committed the worst atrocity possible by not adding new ones. Just head over there and you'll see post after post condemning them for that, when for all we know, IT'S FREAKING IMPOSSIBLE TO ADD NEW ONES. TO me, that's too far the other way. They should do bug fixes, yes and some bugs do still exist that should be fixed, but that's all I think they could reasonably owe those of us who purchased those. Anyway, I'm still excited for 2.8. Hopefully sooner rather than later, but I'll still be okay if Christmas ends up coming in July.

    Since I don't remember them promising a never ending stream of new amps and effects, I went to their site and looked over the OFFICIAL marketing stuff. I don't see it. I'm not saying that no one from L6 ever said there would be new amps and effects, but I'm pretty sure that MOST CUSTOMERS didn't go over to TGP and read everything posted there in the run-up to the release. There were LOTS of pages, and I'm sure not going back 4 years to re-read them for the sake of argument, but if it's not in the OFFICIAL MARKETING MATERIALS it ain't real. Fact is, I bought mine because I had FAITH that new amps and effects would happen, and I would've been very disappointed if that didn't happen. But the perception that they OWE us, and they'd better get their butts in gear to keep us happy is, IMHO, misguided entitlement mentality and, unfortunately, all too common. Yes I do understand product development. I also did it for a living. The costs of future product development that are or aren't rolled into the current cost of a product don't mean scratch to end users. You can't take a company to court over whether you got your money's worth from product development you thought was supposed to happen after your purchase, so let's not pretend that it's part of the deal! Since they've already delivered LOTS of new amps and effects, even implied commitments have been met, and any new amps or effects are ADDED VALUE at this point. Say "Thank you!".

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    Maybe you did. Most customers picked the Helix because one of the value propositions that Line6 advertised is that the unit would get better over time. Again, you and I paid for the updates already (if you think you haven't then you don't understand product development, I do it for a living...), If you don't care about that it's fine but let's not pretend it's not part of the deal.

    Tranfer Firehawk presets to Helix

    Save your Firehawk presets to your account. You can refer to your app to dial in sounds similar to what you had on the Firehawk. Just switched 2 months ago and it was worth it 1000%

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    Perhaps we're misunderstanding you. You seem to think that L6 OWES us upgrades. L6 OWES us bug-fix updates. Nothing more. You paid for what was included in the most current update when you bought your unit. Every amp, every effect, every improvement (beyond bug-fixes) since then was VALUE ADDED. You get to say THANK YOU, not "It's about time!"

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    I view it differently. I paid for my Helix... with the features it had... at the time that I bought it. Every update after that is a bonus...

    Shuriken firmware issues - Solved.

    I have had my Shuriken since they were initially released (i pre-orered mine). I have NEVER connected it to a computer for updating. Using my iMac and the Line 6 USB dongle, I'm attempting to update the firmware on the Shuriken as well as a JTV-59. The green light is on for the USB side of the dongle, red light blinks on the variax cable side. I've tried different cables. I have 2 (1 brand new) Line 6 Neutrix Variax cable and I've tried different networking cables (which work with the Helix Rack controller fine). I've made sure both batteries have a fresh charge and 4 dots light up green on the battery box indicator. I'm running latest versions of all software (line6 Monkey and Workbench HD matter here). Please advise. This is frustrating. Dump all this money into gear... MAKE VARIAX UPDATABLE VIA HELIX!!!!! It's almost 2020 people. Dongles suck. Yes, I've searched for an answer to this in your database. EDIT: I solved the problem. When using the DONGLE, the 1/4" cable plugged into the variax guitar caused me problems. I use high-end cables and tried 3 different cables before unwrapping a new 1/4" cable I have and trying it. It failed on me 2x (with guitar hanging on a stand untouched during update) - but the 3rd time was a charm on the Shuriken. The JTV-59 updated 1st time, no problems. With Helix being 3 years old now, I don't understand why this isn't executable using the Helix while connected to a computer. For something we do once in a blue moon... I guess it's not a priority. Thanks for reading.

    New Helix LT user: Helix into combo amp questions

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions so far. So one thing that seems to have helped is changing instrument to line for the 1/4. I get a significant volume boost, meaning I don't need to crank the amp so I get far fewer of those piercing highs. I did plug the cable from the Helix 1/4 out directly into the effects return. What I found though is that everything sounds very thin like that. Any suggestions for that? I did manage to get some nice feedback though.

    VDI wireless?

    VDI is basically power + AES/EBU + MIDI: VDI interface diagram; It sounds like you only need wireless MIDI: Yamaha MD-BT01 Wireless AES/EBU has also been done, but connecting a battery-powered DAC to JTV DVI for wireless analog guitar sound may be more expedient.
