    Helix HX - Power Supply Woes

    Thanks for the head's up on Sweetwater. I actually found them in stock on guitareffectspedals.com. Hopefully it arrives soon and my little Stomp-based pedal board will be complete!

    HX FX - Need 1 more loop

    Trying to figure a way to run my H9 in the loops of the HX Effects (in stereo) but also run 4CM with my Mod 50 in a WDW rig. Outputs would go to the wet power amp. Can I do this with a GRX4? or other loop switcher?

    POD HD500X can't be detected with Catalina (mac)

    well, saying that it isn't compatible is fairly strong language. it isn't working today. that doesn't mean it won't work tomorrow. also, it could be other things causing the issue. For example, you didn't say that you had it up and working prior to this... case in point, the thread created right before yours was from someone who just bought the unit and never had it working in the first place. but, also, the unit still works. It's not like it broke. It just isn't communicating with your new apple product at the moment. I mean, I feel your pain. I would die if my L6 devices stopped working on my windows devices. i literally blank out the unit with my "new tone" bundle, and install individual patches every time i go on stage based on that night's performance.

    POD HD500X can't be detected with Catalina (mac)

    Copied and pasted from here: macOS 10.15 Catalina Compatibility (where all the things that currently should work and not with Catalina are listed). Mac users, You may have received an email about the issues that upgrading to Catalina can present. We've posted an article about Catalina. We will update it as we have news to report. If you've updated already and you're having trouble with the software that we list in the article as working, it's likely you have a 32-bit version of those programs installed. Please uninstall them and then download the latest version of them, which will be 64-bit. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

    Spider Remote on MacOs X

    Hi, I'm not sure what is causing this issue. I attempted to uninstall and reinstall Spider Remote without issue. Are you using spotlight to search for the Spider V Remote app?

    FR: "Global Blocks"

    I guess I hadn't really looked at how Fractal had implemented that before. It's different than what I thought. That's just a collection of defaults for different amp models. That's probably doable, although I'd expect Line 6 could come up with a much less clunky way to do it.

    2.82 Update

    I use a Variax and haven't had any problems like this with the 2.82 update. My Variax worked as it should, and all changes occurred as they were programmed... never unexpectedly. Are you sure it isn't a VDI Cable issue... especially at the connections?

    FR: "Global Blocks"

    Oh btw, there's even a kind of (in this case IMO not so great) global setting within blocks: It's IRs. Slap another IR into slot 1 and each and every patch using the IR that is loaded into slot 1 will then be changed (fwiw, IMVHO, this is a pretty much less than ideal way to deal with IRs - but that's a wellknown Helix caveat anyway).

    FR: "Global Blocks"

    Hm, I don't see why that would happen. I mean, a Placater is a Placater, regardless of the position and patch it is used in. Define this as "global amp #1" and you're done (obviously without losing the "un-global" Placater). The hidden parameters of any amp/fx are saved globally, too (such as the tube types, which you can't exchange on Helix amps) - just that they're not exposed. So, really, not sure whether it'd have much to do with DSP allocations.

    Wah/Volume consistent throughout Snapshots?

    Well, I'm just used to hardware Wah/Volume pedals and thought I could treat the Helix pedal 100% the same. Apparently not so. But then, as said, I may even learn to enjoy it. Would perhaps be interesting to elaborate how often the Helix behaviour would result in a "wasted" toe switch vs. a saved toe switch.

    FR: "Global Blocks"

    I think at the current development stage, adding global blocks would probably be quite difficult. The problem is the way Line 6 has the available DSP opened up in every preset. It doesn't allocate any DSP for any specific blocks, so if they went back and tried to shoehorn this concept into things after the fact, it would probably end up breaking a lot of users' presets.

    Wah/Volume consistent throughout Snapshots?

    I should add that personally, I don't think I'd want to ever load a snapshot and have the Wah block turned on. I'd always want to turn the wah on with the toe switch. So all of my snapshots would be saved with the Wah block off and the Volume block on, with the pedal set to EXP2 (assuming EXP2 is controlling the Volume block).

    Wah/Volume consistent throughout Snapshots?

    I can mess around with it later, but the whole reason they added the functionality of the EXP1/EXP2 state of the on-board being recalled with snapshots was for the very things you're talking about. As long as the bypass states and EXP states are lined up when the snapshots are saved, it should work fine.
  17. SaschaFranck

    Wah/Volume consistent throughout Snapshots?

    Fwiw, I have just been discussing the issue on the phone with a long time Helix expert - he didn't find a sufficient solution, either, others than using a separate on/off switch for Wah/Vol and controlling both through the same EXP (1 or 2). Depending on the pedal position, this may however cause a volume jump once you switch from wah to volume. Personally, I will keep my global Snapshot Edits settings at "Discard", keep "Snapshot Bypass" active for the Wah and save it as "off" for each snapshot. Will then require a new toe switch each time I switch snapshots and want to keep the wah active, but in the end I may even find it useful here and there, such as when switching from a wah clean to a wah-less riff sound. Not what I expected things to be like but should be a decent way for the time being (I hope this will get adressed somewhen in the future).
  18. SaschaFranck

    Wah/Volume consistent throughout Snapshots?

    I have tried all that. Right now, there is *no* way to keep the setting of any Wah/Vol switching consistent when using snapshots, regardless of the global settings and/or the "Snapshot Bypass" settings of the wah block. You can try it for yourself. Just set up 4 snapshots and do the Wah/Vol thing. Switch snapshots and the toe switch either way, leaving the wah on before you switch snapshots and leaving it off. Doesn't work the way I'd like it to work - as in it working as a global Wah/Vol pedal with the status remaining the same all throughout. In case I'm wrong, pretty please post a patch along with what has to be set in the global menu.

    Wah/Volume consistent throughout Snapshots?

    How are you seeing snapshot alter things, exactly? The state of the on-board pedal (whether it's acting as EXP1 or EXP2) is recalled with snapshots, so maybe that's what's tripping you up? If you have it so the the bypass controller for both the Wah and Volume is set to the Toe Switch, then it should be pretty straightforward. If Volume is active and you click the toe switch, the Volume block will be bypassed and the Wah will be activated. If you switch snapshots in this state, things will go back to how the snapshot was saved (assuming you have Snapshot Bypass turned on for these blocks - turning it off could easily cause a misalignment between which EXP is active and which block is turned on). I also think keeping the Snapshot Edits parameter set to Discard is going to be easier. As far the EXP Position parameters, you probably want that set to Per Preset or Global, not Per Snapshot.

    POD HD500X can't be detected with Catalina (mac)

    So my PODHD500X is not compatible with Catalina???? I downloaded the new HD Edit software that is supposedly for Catalina!! What am I supposed to do now as I can't use it?

    FR: "Global Blocks"

    I like the global EQ - but it's something not even remotely adressing the things I wish were possible.
  22. My usual laptop has just about died, so I'm trying to use my work laptop for music production while I work out the cash for a new machine. However, my work machine is one of the newer Macbook Pros with 4x Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports and nothing else. What's my best (if any!) option for connecting my Helix Floor to it? I thought perhaps just buying a USB-B to USB-C cable might work (people on Ableton forums confirmed this would work for Push 2) but I haven't been able to find any other assurances re: Helix (mostly I found people who can't connect to new iPad Pros and I'm not sure if the same applies here). Would I see any performance hit if I used an adaptor (say, Apple's USB to USB-C, nothing fancy https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/product/MJ1M2ZM/A/usb-c-to-usb-adapter). Anybody in the same situation with a solution that'll work?

    FR: "Global Blocks"

    There's a global eq, would that help?
  24. If you connect the backline instruments to the M20d you can get a full recording. That's what I do.

    HX Stomp - noise and tone issues

    My guess is that you're experiencing a ground loop - electrical interference between your laptop computer and your HX Stomp. Try unplugging your laptop and running it on battery. If the noise disappears then this is the problem. There are solutions available but we don't need to go there until/unless you confirm the issue with the above test.

    ReAmping with SPDIF

    Thanks for the reply dude, i'll try to do it as you've written it, but i dont have any controlls in the komplete audio controller software that say "software playback" or "hardware playback". But i'll try again and see if i can get it to work somehow... i'll keep this thread updated, should be home in a few hours

    Helix into Valve Amp

    If you want to use an amp block in your Helix then you're best off going straight into your amp's effects return. If you're going straight into your amps "normal" input then you have a full helix patch including amp (and possibly a cab?) going into real combo amp with preamp, poweramp and cab of its own. So - if you want to use helix overdrive/distortion/dynamics pedals plus things like reverb/delay etc from helix - look into the 4 cable method (4CM). But that way you wouldn't use any preamp/amp/cab in helix. If you do want to use the helix amp modelling then pick either a pre-amp block or an amp block (with no cab) along with any other pedals in your chain and then go straight into your amps effects return bypassing the physical pre-amp.
