    Helix not starting up

    Have you try to make a reset? (5+6 on boot restores Global parameters or fs 9+10 on boot restores presets, setlists, globals and IRs (restores factory bundle) "THIS WILL OVERWRITE ALL USER PRESETS AND SETLISTS) Can you enter update mode (fs6+12) and reinstall the firmware? Otherwise I think it's a hardware problem and you have to open a support ticket.

    If that doesn't help, you may have squirrels. No, really, they're a thing. Search here and on the digital and modeling forum on The Gear Page.
  4. Hi Everybody, I have been trying for hours to connect my pod to windows. Pod Edit program seems to work fine but there is only one big problem: if I choosethe POD as audio driver, no sounds come from speakers. So I can't listen to my editing work on patches and sounds. I also have some problems when I try to install the latest drivers for the POD HD 500 X edit program. Line 6 Monkey is able to download the driver but it fails installation and sends me on the download area of the official web site. That sin the website tells me that "At this time, there is no software available that matches your selection." :( How can I fix the problem?

    It’s been awhile since anyone commented on this thread, so just wondering if it’s gotten any better for the low Enders?

    OSX Catalina and HX Stomp

    Amen to that... Early adopter = guinea pig. Life has enough headaches as it is. No need to punch yourself in the nuts....;)
  11. Thanks a lot: after dozens of try with a Lenovo tablet with Android 7, this was the solution! You saved a young guitar learner!

    OSX Catalina and HX Stomp

    I know that when I first installed Mojave I had much the same experience ... no input from any source into Cubase. It turned out that the first time I ran Cubase it asked me whether or not I wanted to use the “microphone”. I said no ... no use for the built-in Mac mic. Wrong answer! Microphone in Applespeak means audio input. The fix was to tick the box beside Cubase in the security section of the system preferences. Go to System Preferences/Security & Privicy/Privacy/Microphone and make sure that Logic is checked. BTW, I’m not going for Catalina until all of my critical apps have been released in 64-bit versions. Edit: There's an app called Go64 that will check your system and list all 32-bit (and 64-bit) apps. Useful for knowing what needs updating.

    Global EQ missing on menu

    Hi! I just got a pod hd500x, and i can't find the global EQ settings where they are supposed to be (holding view button as i guessed watching a video) I just realised that flash FirmWare Version is 1.00 and USB is 1.04... could it be the problem? Thanks!

    Stereo IR

    Thanks all, I should have clarified more.... I am not running out of blocks. I simply needed to understand the parallel path better. I was successful in making two different paths but in order to keep things simple I placed ... IR -> Reverb (stereo) -> Term (stereo) out to stereo delay..... done. Thanks for the feedback all!.

    CC Assign Snapshot Issue

    Yes, MIDI through USB. The App doesn't "understand" MIDI In, though, so it shouldn't exactly be an issue. Someone recommended to turn of MIDI Clock on the Helix (which is fine with me, don't need it for the time being) as it might be another problematic thing. However, I will give this a last try and then possibly call it a day as the conflicts between snapshots and CCs don't allow me to utilize it the way I'd like anyway.

    CC Assign Snapshot Issue

    Were you using MIDI over USB? It can be quite easy to get a feedback loop when you start sending commands.

    Expression Pedal Not Working on HD500

    I've reinstalled the software, booting back to factory. I've done the calibration 3 different times, and after a few preset changes, the expression pedal goes out. The toe switch works, but the vol/wah does nothing. Could this be a ribbon cable issue? Also, the power off/right button step only works about 2 out of 5 times. I may just have a lemon

    CC Assign Snapshot Issue

    Fooled around a bit more, Helix first started to act strange, next it completely froze in, had to rebuild everything by a global 9/10 switch reset. Could've possibly tried the 11/12 reset, but as I had everything backed up, it's been no drama. However, my personal bottomline so far would be: Stay away from anything CC-controlled for the time being.

    "Direct Link" to Helix hardware

    Ok, back up and running (phew...). So, preset drag and drop works fine - but you need to save things first to also have your edits transfered. Very useful, though. Still, what I was suggesting would likely be way more powerful as you could tweak parameters on either Native or the hardware. And you would never have to leave your DAW.

    spider v 20 usb dont work

    I have decided my problem Previosly I used pc windows 7 (with spider remote) + cable (usb type A - usb micro B) + Spider V20.

After this setup all settigs оn the switch "Preset" had returned (the same as in the manual)
  24. Hello, Randall Satan has been my all around favourite sounding amp since the 1st time I've heard it live. Since their availability in my country is an issue, I never got to buy an actual unit. Well, now I have a Helix - reasoning behind going digital - that I'll leave to myself. All I can say is that I sold all my tube thingys. I saw Collin from Plague Scythe Studio dial in a Randall Satan patch with the AX8. Since AX8 can do it, I bet Helix does too - "Sky is the limit" is the common phrase around this forum. I bet that we can get somewhat close to the real thing. I already cracked the Grind pedal - all it took was a 10 band EQ with specific settings (I'll post a screen later, it works great). I just don't know where to start... The Badonk? Elektrik? What amp would be a good starting point? Maybe somebody already tried tonematching the Satan? I have a wide array of IRs available - ML Sound Lab Mega Oversize, Ownhammers Mesa, Orange and the HHC2. I even laid my hand on Ola's own Hesu IR - I already use it as a "to go" IR. Truth be told, I can't even imagine using the Helix without third party IRs. I think this is where Helix fails, and if the stock cabs were better, we wouldn't hear about AXE FX eating the HX for breakfast. All advice is welcome - lets crack this thing, and prove once for all that the Helix is capable of good, modern, tight, djenty high gain. Down the rabbit hole, Cheers, Chr1s

    I believe that the Hotkeys commands works like other commands assigned to footswitches in the fact that you can have a different value assigned to the footswitch for each snapshot, and when you change snapshots, that value will be shot out if it's different than the snapshot you're coming from. Not saying for sure that's what's happening, but it may be worth looking into.

    Same issue here. While in snapshot mode, selecting a snapshot triggers the underlying midi command mapped on the same foot-switch in the stomp mode. When Line 6 released the 2.81, I was quite impressed that the hotkey functionality was introduced and ya bugs are expected but I thought that would be sorted out in 2.82. I hoped for too much. I had issues the hotkeys. Working on Presets with programmed hotkeys will more often than not caused HXEdit to crash, or the hotkeys will just randomly reset its parameters. I have stopped using hotkeys and midi in the helix it is so unreliable that I resorted to getting the Nektar Pacer to control my DAW. Lost a lot of time trying to get the midis and hotkeys to work. Very useful tool if Line 6 can make it work but for now it causes more disappointment and frustration than anything else. Snapshot Mode Stomp Mode

    Helix Floor exp pedal

    I bought a Helix a couple weeks ago used, and have noticed that its exp pedal still has at least 1/2” of travel to full toe down when it starts to display 100%. Doesn’t matter if it’s exp1/2 or linear/log. I’m just trying to figure out if this is normal behavior for it or mine has an issue.
