    HX stomp USB noise

    Earlier you said the noise was gone when using the Stomp as the interface... Was your Stomp still connected to the Duet wen you made the first recording?

    Helix MIDI interface for AxeFX Standard via AxeEdit

    Yes, i've connected both cables, Helix midi out/thru -> AxeFX Midi IN; Axe FX Midi Out -> Helix Midi In.

    Helix MIDI interface for AxeFX Standard via AxeEdit

    Don't have an AXE, but if it works like the FCB1010 with an editor, it requires two connections - IN and OUT. Going thru the Helix you're getting one-way only on the THRU function.

    New Helix LT user: Helix into combo amp questions

    Thanks! You are right that the Digitech 500 is a cheaper multi-effects and circa 2008. Significantly cheaper actually. But it does boast amp modelling, and it definitely makes a big difference when you bypass the amp and just use the Marshall. I currently have the Helix 1/4 output set to instrument. Line gives me a lot more volume, but I am a bit concerned about the noise. The manual says to use instrument, but I will experiment. Any tips for the EQ? With the Digitech, I never used EQ, just a noise gate.

    Helix Native Problem

    I've attached screenshots. At this point, I'm out of ideas. On both of my laptops (i5,i7 Windows 10). it just works. Kilrahi's suggestion about Norton mirrors my own previously, but you said that you initially had it activated on this machine, so that shouldn't be the problem, but look into it anyway. My recommendation to shut down wireless didn't take into account your needing it for the XR16. The reason for shutting down wireless is that when recording with a DAW, you don't want anything interrupting the processor. It's a drag to have that "perfect take" wrecked by a sound glitch caused by the wireless looking for available networks! If you do serious recording, you may have to choose between that possibility and dividing the chores between multiple computers. If I think of anything else.....

    HX stomp USB noise

    This is the difference in levels when I select the HX stomp as input and the Duet as input. In both cases, the noise is present.

    Yes that's the line level when the Duet is selected as input and output and also when the USB is connected from the HX stompt to my Mac.

    So are you still talking about recording through your Duet here?

    I know it’s counterintuitive, but I prefer the sound of the Helix full amp model and IR into the return of my Marshall tube amp. I’ve tried the preamp/no IR approach, and it always sounds small to me. I use a wet/dry/wet setup, and the Marshall is the dry in the middle. My xlr outputs go to 2 frfr speakers. Pretty big sounds/tones. Good luck on your tone quest.

    The level in the preset is on 0 db. I definitely don't want to increase it as the noise exponentially increase also. Unfortunately apart from the low volume I have this constant ground noise that is clearly hearable in the recording. I'll send you a screenshot of my DAW.

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    We could sit here and check off one genuinely "unnerving" thing after another all day long. Much of the world is unnerving, to put it mildly. This however, doesn't even make the first cut.... and to any and everyone who's fortunate enough to have nothing better to complain about: Slàinte! You've won the game of life...

    IMO.... this is how I would do it with your setup (some has been said above, I am just going through all the steps to be complete) Plug your guitar into the Helix Plug the output of the Helix into the POWER AMP IN or Effects Return (depending on what it has) on the Marshall Do not use "cabinet" models on the Helix (use the preamp model, or the amp without cabs) Dial it in as you wish, and use the big knob to control your overall volume volume. (NOTE: there are no particular rules with a modeler like the Helix.... the above is just a general guideline) As for your tone/feedback... that is different from rig to rig, setup to setup. IMO, controllable feedback comes from volume and position, not gain - but there are always exceptions. All I can suggest is that you don't scoop the mids too much.... that's where all the resonant frequencies are. If you get "ear splitting" feedback... that likely means the highs are taking off before the mids can.

    Plus, you know that if they truly hadn't said anything about any updates since the last one people would be posting about how unnerving the silence is.

    Helix Native Problem

    This sounds like a real hairball, and I know you already mentioned the Norton route, but is it possible Norton or a Windows firewall is blocking access of Helix Native to the internet? That wouldn't necessarily mean you have to give up on Norton, but I've run into similar problems with McAfee and I had to go in and grant special permission for that program to access the internet.

    HX Stomp Question

    As Datacommando indicated above, the manual actual shows an easy way to do it by utilizing the "Send Left" FX block and placing it just before the cab/IR block on your signal chain. The downside of this is obvious, it uses up one of the Stomp's precious six blocks. It would be a god send if they would design the Stomp so that you could create a path B signal chain without using a block, but unfortunately that isn't the case. Still, you should be aware that another option would be to create a path B and have it go out the "send" output on path B to your power amp. Sometimes utilizing an additional delay, or a reverb, or even just a low DSP usage EQ or compressor on a path B can be more useful to your signal chain than a simple FX send block.

    Change Pitch Wham range via Footswitch

    Hello all - I'm new to the Helix Floor. I'm trying to create a preset that allows me to drop pitch an octave (-12) via the expression pedal and then up an octave via expression when a footswitch is engaged. When the assigned switch is disengaged I'd like to go back to down an octave (-12). If I could do this using two separate footswitch assignments that would work too. So far I'm unable to make this work. Thanks!
  19. I set my return from the Helix to -4db, that helped me a lot. I also have it set to line level, and just like you, I modified my FX loop to serial. Mesa should just put a switch on their amps that let you change to serial FX loops. I also had to put some time into dialing in the Helix. I noticed some of the dirt boxes didn't sound so good with the Rectifier -- like the OCD. Since we have the same amp, I can post my patch this evening when I get home.

    Any on know how I can cancel all the previos settings and bring this Pod I love back to the original settings?

    Unnerving is such an odd word to describe what you're feeling while waiting for a firmware update... It's really not that big of a deal. It will happen in due course.

    Ideally you should be plugging the Helix output into the effects return of the Marshall which will then use only the power amp portion of the amp allowing you to get the clean and accurate modeling output of the Fender Twin through the Marshall power amp and cabinet. Because you're using a physical cabinet you wouldn't typically use the modeled cabs or any IRs in your signal chain.

    HX stomp USB noise

    When you say the level knob, are you talking about the physical volume knob on the unit? That has no effect on the USB audio. Only the level in the preset will affect that. It sounds like you just have your presets created at a relatively low volume. Again, it's not really that big of a deal if the level going into your DAW is sort of low. With 24 bit digital audio, you really don't lose any fidelity by recording at lower levels. It actually gives you more flexibility while mixing. But if you want things louder, go to the output block, and increase the level parameter there. You can increase the preset volume by up to 20dB there. As far as the power supply, that's not really the issue. If it were grounded, it could actually be more problematic. The ground on a power supply isn't there for noise reason, but simply for safety issues. The Stomp falls below the threshold, load-wise, where a grounded power supply is required.

    Generally if you are playing directly into a real amp you are not going to use modeled amps, preamps, or cabinet sounds. But that is a basic guideline. If you want to experiment with using the preamp sounds or even the full amp sounds I recommend doing it with no cab or IR model. Also check the settings for output on helix for instrument and line level and try both to see if that helps with the sound your trying to get. Then mess around with with some of the different EQ blocks in helix after that to see if that helps you recreate the sound you are going for, and helps you find the feedback frequency you are trying to get. I haven't used a Digitech RP500 but since its an older and cheaper product I'm guessing the cabinet modeling in it was probably acting as more of a basic EQ, while cabs in helix or IRs are creating a very complex EQ that might not help you (or it might but I would try that last)

    HX stomp USB noise

    I have the level knob all the way up on my hx stomp and the input signal I receive in my DAW is very low, which requires me to increase it by 15 db to reach a decent waveform. I think it's really a lot to increase a recordings by more than 3-4 db's. I just found out that the power adaptor of the HX stomp is not grounded. Could be that the reason of my annoying ground noise? If so, (apart from wondering why Line 6 engineers did not thought of a grounded power adapter) which power adapter I could buy to solve the issue? Furthermore, could I solve the problem by buying a filtered power strip?

    Logic has no place on the internet...it interferes with all the baseless speculation. If we all started thinking about things, how would we get a decent gripe and whine off the ground? ;) "The Gripe and Whine" would be a great name for a $hitty dive bar...
