    HX effects NO SIGNAL . Perfect Signal when unit is off

    While I feel sorry for others that have it, I am happy to know it isn't just me. Perhaps this will be fixed in 2.8.
  3. Thank you mate. After 9 years it is the first time i up tune the guitar, and found the problem. Thank you again, awaiting your news.
  4. Hi I sent the guitar to a support team here. Let's see what they will find. The problem exists independent if I played a high gain or a clean sound. I'll let u know the outcome

    POD HD Desktop VS POD XT+add-on packs

    I understand what your saying. Thanks so much for the replies everyone. Yeah man I can't wait to dig into a POD HD desktop. I see what your saying about quality vs quantity. I think one of the reasons I want the bean is I don't have an amplifier right now and I really only play at my desk and I got the perfect spot at my desk to just drop n plug it into my setup. Can anyone say what if any new effects were added to the POD HD Desktop in any updates from its factory settings? Man if the POD HD Desktop is better then the XT and X3 I must be in for a real treat lol. Can't wait...

    Experiments With Helix Master Volume Settings

    I have become persuaded that one of the more common 'issues' with Helix is incorrect (excessive) gain staging. The results are then ascribed to supposed failings in the modelling itself, which is somewhat like TYPING ALL IN CAPS. Less is indeed more :-)
  8. Problem exists. Up tune the variax by one tone, on high gain amp, and palm mute. Just did it through my helix.

    Powercab Plus Midi revisited

    Im thinking that once 8.2 hits most things will be updated. I will be using HX edit and using the L6 Link port on Helix to control both PC +'s speaker cabs, mic, etc then. If PC Edit is also updated as well, Then I will redo some audio inputs and outs to allow my Kemper to also use the PC+!

    tune while looping??

    damn,. maybe something they will address in a future update, thanks for the reply :)

    frfr speakers

    I try to use whatever rig I have as a side fill. Makes it real easy for the FoH guy to get a good sound. My regular guitar speakers are a pair of Marshall 1x12"s so I'll either balance one on another in a mini stack to get one to near chest height, or use a few beer crates with a black curtain over them to raise them both to the right height. If I'm FRFR on monitors, I try to get a monitor just for my guitar if possible, if not I'll use a PA wedge I take around with me directly out of one of the helix' alternate outputs so I can get 'more me'.

    tune while looping??

    does anyone know if its possible to keep a loop playing and use the tuner? this would help live gigs tremendously but i can't figure out how help! cw

    HX effects NO SIGNAL . Perfect Signal when unit is off

    Not sure really what the issue with 2.71 and some units... I’ve had 2.71 installed on my HX Effects for quite a long time now, and I’ve not had any issues.

    Does and Amp+Cab block exist for Ampeg?

    You can use a single amp/cab block for that combination, yes.

    Scratchy Expression Pedal on the Helix.

    Taking the unit apart is the only option?
  17. I'm thinking of getting a Stomp but need to economize on block usage to fit what I need to do within the 6 block limit. Is there a single Ampeg bass block available that consists of Amp+Speaker cab like there are for some of the other amp types? From just looking at the block list without ever having used any of the Helix products it seems like I need to have one block assigned to SV Beast and a 2nd block assigned to the 8x10 cab. Thx

    HX Stomp as audio interface- setting?

    Steps 1 & 2 were for the DAW. Step three is in the HXS.

    The Mother of all Headphone Complaint Answers

    Bumping an old thread ... so I have qc15s, and on all my gear (axe fix, thr10, helix stomp, the volume is low and when I turn up even the slightest they distort. So if others are using them it's gotta be my patch levels? Seems strange that all 3 would be low. When I play through my atomic CLR, my levels are fine. Of course the CLR is rated for 500 watts I think

    HX effects NO SIGNAL . Perfect Signal when unit is off

    Hi same thing. Update to 2.71 ==> no Sound ... I went crazy 'cause I thought it was my mistake.. Downgrade to 2.70 ==> works perfectly It looks like the 2.71 is not ok, therefore, why is it not just taken out from the download area or at least having a hint that Helix FX has issues with that 2.71 software version? By the way, just for support as I was also looking for "how to downgade": I just did that through Line6 Updater, download the software from the page (2.70), run Line6 Updater, chose the software and that's it ...very user friendly!!!

    Firehawk FX 2019 updates!!!!!

    I would add to the “wish list”: - Fix the Bluetooth connectivity in iOS, it’s very annoying that FHFX looses the connection 8 seconds after the song has started. - Improve the tuner, please! It just need a little more to be really good: like turning the knob to get different tunings and/or MHz... - Give it chain freedom, why is it restricted? - Some of the “preset effects” have something wrong, if you try to use them they make the FHFX goes crazy (like incompatibility issues). - It has the USB connectivity already working, why don’t give us a Windows & OSX editor? You already have the Helix one, this could work in FHFX with it’s obvious limitations, right? Should not be rocket science. - You don’t have the money for development? Well, you have 2 options: you can charge us for the computer editor and extra amps/pedals/mics/ etc OR release the software as open source!!! I bet you there are LOTS of guys out there that could make a state of the art software (I’m sure nor Zoom or Roland will steal it). I have this pretty good hardware here with the FHFX and I am really sure it has enormous potential, let us have it or give or sell it to us! I, as a non professional player, am not interested in the Helix, it’s just too much, FX100 and FHFX opened a big market for Line 6, don’t let us down, please!!!

    HX Stomp as audio interface- setting?

    Thanks very much for the replies. I downloaded and installed the line6 driver for mac and playback is working perfectly. Thx for the info. the above settings for HXS? or DAW? (= 4 options/8 possible states... room for confusion....) 1st attempt did not work,but will dig deeper later... cheers, D
  24. Hi, I've got a Verbzilla pedal which misses all the four bolts in the back of the chassis. I've tried different sizes but no one fits in. Could someone tell me which kind of bolt/screw (shape, length, size, etc.) these pedals need? Thanks.

    Experiments With Helix Master Volume Settings

    Any DAW plugin or Helix block has a sweet spot for its input. If you drive the block outside this sweet spot, it might function fine, but its effects might not be optimal for typical settings. If you drive the block too hard, it might introduce unintended distortion. This is particularly true of many Helix effect blocks like the Leslie blocks, that were designed for front of the amp use with guitar input levels, but are often used after the amp in Helix signal chains. We don’t know the input levels the blocks were designed for, so finding the sweet spot would take some experimenting. And of course under or over driving the block could produce exactly the sound you’re looking for, optimized or not. But I find keeping each block close to unity gain is a good safe starting point, and provides a simple way of normalizing patch volumes. It also provides more predictable results if you copy a block to other presets to reuse its settings - the expected input and output levels will be consistent. If you keep all blocks unity gain, and send the full XLR output to FOH, you’ll be sending a typical signal level that won’t result in any surprises at the mixing board. I use a DAW to set the block to unity gain by adjusting so the level is close to the same when the block is on or bypassed. But you can do this close enough by just listening. A few dB isn’t going to make much difference. This will result in a pretty low level output from Helix. I keep my Powercab+ volume maxed out, and run Helix master (digital) output around 1-3 o-clock. This gives all the stage volume I need. I like the low output from Helix because this helps make sure there’s no potential for digital clipping at the A2D or D2A converters.
