  2. So is this something you do for each different amp? Or do you find IR's that work with many different amps. Or a combination of both perhaps. And do you personally rename your IR's?
  3. I don't know the official answer, most likely the 2 inputs Guitar in and Aux/Return (if both used) signals will be mixed together but the chain with its settings, effects and amp will be just one and shared. To get 2 independent separately processed (mono) lines you need the big HX brothers, or even the old HD500/X. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

  5. Ok good to know. But that assumes they are route to the stereo output. It doesn’t answer whether those inputs can be mixed or blended together with separate gain and effects and routed to a mono output like Helix can do on a single dsp.
  6. I would like 10 snapshots, too. The announced 2.9 update will allow you to select snapshots in stomp mode (via Command Center), so you could theoretically have 10 snapshots - but you'd lose stomp mode in that case, which I personally don't want at all.
  7. How did you monitor the Helix at the gig?
  8. Hi, I normally don't use the up and down switches, and they are there. If those could be utilized as additional Snap Shot switches would be great, of course hoping for max. 10 snapshots then :-D. Just gives more options within one Preset. Multiples with selection comes close to changing to new presets. Personally trying to keep it simple to one Preset, because the balancing of volumes becomes more tedious with increased no. of presets... Cheers, Thomas
  9. As you can check by yourself by reading the already dowloadable POD GO CHEAT SHEET the stereo RETURN can be used as AUX stereo input. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  10. In my opinion it is more likely that some frets on the neck of the guitar are no longer perfectly aligned with the others, or the strings are too close to the fretboard, or the truss rod need to be adjusted a little, or the strings are too old. Moreover, some types of amps and settings tend to sonically emphasize the small imperfections of the connected instrument. Problems in bending in the area around the 12th key onwards are often indicative of the need to make a new setup to the instrument (if the strings are still new). I happened to have the same problem, and with new strings and/or new setup I solved everything. The plain unwound strings (like the first 3 e,b,g) if defective or too old/worn out easily give the described symptoms. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

    POD Go FAQ

    that would be a great feature! I guess they can perhaps implement it with a software update if it doesn't do it already.
  12. Thank you for your replies. Actually the problem comes from the Helix. I have a Harley Benton FXL8 Pro that change the channel of my Mesa perfectly fine by triggering a signal in a standard jack. What is weird is that changing the channel works fine with the HX effects when the input jack is not plugged. As soon as I plug the input, two channels are up together, and the amp buzz. Adding a Voodoo Lab to switch channel in midi is not a good solution for me. I chose HX effects to have a small and efficient solution and because it had an external switch.
  13. Thanks - our thought there was that if we needed more inputs we could run a small mixing desk into one of those inputs - we'd probably only need to do that if we wanted to mic up the drums. Just a small 4 channel mixer would then cover the drums. It was the sheer convenience of these things that impressed us - plus the fact that I could use one them at home to run my helix through when dialling in patches - they're actually quite compact.
  14. Each Evox 8 stack rates at 128 db SPL which should be more than enough with two stacks if I'm reading their specs correctly. The concern would be with the mixer which only really has 4 standard inputs and two stereo lines. Channels 5/6 could be used for one 1/4" mono input, but channels 7/8 is a low level (-10db) stereo line using RCA unbalanced inputs which I think you'd find to be problematic for instrument or vocal inputs. That only gives you 5 inputs and one is a limited input for 1/4" only. You might want to look into that.

    Helix 2.9

    Yeah, that'd be very useful, too. Along with an option for the entire preset to either be just a reference/alias or a "hard copy".
  16. Thanks for your responses. The reason we were looking at the RCF evox 8 (with the Jmix console/MIXER) is just how convenient they are to store and put up. We did a gig this weekend with an old PA system and it took ages to put up and it didn't sound great. The JMIX has, effectively, 6 inputs which would cover 2 vocals, 2 guitars, 1 bass and a kick drum - at the moment that's all we'd need and it has the benefit of all the digital/virtual desk controls. Was thinking of getting one of therm and then an additional evox 8 without the mix console to give us a pair. They sounded great in the shop - do you not think they'd be loud enough? a pair of those plus a couple of floor monitors was the plan.
  17. If you don't want to spend the money on an FBV3, the Express should give you a volume pedal, plus the ability to change presets with the footswitches which would make it easier for you to switch between electric and acoustic instruments easily.
  18. Your suggestions have helped me with getting the Park brighter. Thank You. However when I used the 2204 and I play some notes on say the 12th fret B string or 15th fret B string and bend those notes up I still hear those strange whirring noises in the background, and I have shut the Hum value all the way off. Perhaps this is a bug in this amp model. Kind of a shame as the amp sounds better than the JCM-800.
  19. Can the stereo return be used as inputs and mixed together for a mono out... like Helix does?
  20. That's because you have to manually assign stomps to each of the switches whenever you create your own patch. While in stomp mode, touch (don't press) the footswitch for a short period. This will bring up a dialog box to where you can assign a block to that specific footswitch. Also, grab a copy of the updated manual. There is a ton of helpful information inside regarding basic and advanced operations.
  21. I have the control with Helix rack. When I use a factory preset I can turn FX on and off. When i use my custom presets and switch to stombox mode i can't access the fx to toggle them, the windows are blank. When I switch to edit mode they are there blinking and I can edit them, they don't show up in stomp box mode.
  22. Peter thanks, this is what I tried. I have two mono FX sends on my mixing board. I want to return those with different FX to the stereo return on my board. What this shows is two mono returns from the board, and one stereo send to the return on the board. Is theoritically right?

    Helix 2.9

    Exactly the same approach I would like to see with setlists. Pointers to presets rather than the actual presets themselves. That way the same preset can be used in multiple setlists without having to copy it to multiple locations. If a block in the preset has the option of being designated as "global" as SaschaFranck and others have been advocating then a change to that block can be propagated out to that preset in any setlist that points to it.
  24. I've tried to use the free Cubase Elements software that came with my Spider V, but it is way too complicated for me. What easy to use multitrack recording software should I try instead? I really liked GarageBand on my wife's 20 year old Apple Imac, but I don't know where she buried the old computer, and I do not know if there is a Spider V sound driver for the old IMAC G5. (kind doubt it) I'd like to be able to overdub no more than 10 tracks with mic, Spider V, and midi as the only inputs. Effects are not needed. I'm using a Windows 10 laptop, and I'm pretty sure many of the Cubase problems I've experienced are really Windows 10 problems, but simple software would be better. Thanks.
  25. I have a Line 6 Spider V 120W amp in a contest. It's been pretty fun, and useful for the small- to medium-sized venues I play in. Managing the amp @ gigs I've been running the Spider Remote software on my laptop (sits on a media tray). I also keep my playlist and difficult to remember lyrics on the laptop. I always gig with at least 2 guitars, an Gretsch thinline in standard & drop tunings plus another - a parlor with a soundhole humbucker - dedicated to open tunings. Often I bring along an ac-el 5-string banjo as well. A G10T makes switching between instruments so easy! My challenge is that the parlor and the banjo (and a bunch of other wired-for-sound acoustic instruments I own & gig with) either don't have volume controls or have really inaccessible volume controls. So I'm messing mid-gig with the volume controls on the front panel of the Spider 5, or making changes via EQ in the Spider Remote software... Not good. Therefore, I'm thinking I need a Volume Pedal. Looking at different sites, manuals, etc it looks like the Line 6 FBV3 Foot Controller gives me a volume pedal but....also adds a lot of other features I may not need. And my amp manual also mentions using the FBV Express MKII or the FBV Shortboard MkII. Questions: Does the FBV3 controller simplify my live sound life? Or complicate it? Also how difficult is it to integrate all the carefully created & tweaked profiles (presets) I've already got set up in Spider Remote, including the effects set up within each preset that get toggled on/off per song? Do the Express or Shortboard make any sense? Or, maybe Line 6 or another manufacturer offers a straight-up volume pedal ? And I just can't find it. Also would whatever volume pedal act independent of the amp volume controls? If I run an XLR Direct Out to my sound system, the amp's Master Vol is auto-killed, for a good reason. But I would want a volume pedal to still function. If that makes sense. So any constructiive insights, experiences, ideas are appreciated.
