    line 6 touch issue

    how do I turn it off aswell? I am in the footswitches menu of global settings and the options are stomp select, fs3 function, fs4 function and fs5 function. Stomp select I can only choose between touch, press and both. If I select press the issue still happens.

    Guitar input pad - does you or doesn't you?

    I can't find it anywhere in that menu. The first option is for Input Level and you can only choose between line and Inst? Is it available on the stomp hx?

    Footswitch replacement uk

    Hi guys, gt a helix floor with a faulty foot switch, its not always working when you stamp on it, its well out of warranty, we can get it swapped easy enough, its just getting hold o the switch. id rather just get hold of the part and replace it myself than have to send it off to a service centre, we have too many gigs in for it to be away for long anyone got a link to where we can get them in the UK Cheers

    tune while looping??

    Sounds like an external tuner might be the best solution, at least for now. Once you engage the Helix tuner you can use the 'Output' parameter to send the signal via for example one of the Helix Send outputs to an external tuner of your choosing. That method allows you to continue using the Helix's tuner switch to determine when to send signal to your external tuner. Using the Helix's tuner routing means you don't have to do something tedious like include a Send block in every preset. It also means your tuner is only engaged when you hit the switch on the Helix so no extra cables and external tuner between your guitar and your amp/FRFR as would be the case if you hooked up an external tuner before or after the Helix.

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    I hear you. I was pissed when the new editor Fractal was hyping with all the additional bells, whistles, and bug fixes I had been looking forward to for so long for my Axe-FX Ultra only worked if you purchased an Axe-FX II.

    Broken preset joystick

    You can use HX Edit to change setlists, I don't know of another way to change setlists from the Helix if the 'Preset' joystick is broken other then if there is a MIDI command. I suppose you could switch that way. Much as it may pain you to have to wait for a new one again I would send it in for repair/replacement while you can. You don't want to have to live with a broken joystick. Maybe after hearing your tale of woe the dealer or Line6 can expedite the return process this time around.

    Helix Native Problem

    The candidate has 100 points! This advice helped, at least now once. My head bows respectfully in front of the Guru. :-) Thanks! BTW: It was necessary also to deauthorize/reauthorize my computer with the Line6 licence manager

    Help please.

    Don’t do it. The speakers weren’t designed for bass and you could easily blow one.

    Marshall JVM Channel Switching with Helix MIDI

    If you have a Satriani model, that chart should work. Otherwise you will have to use the learn function. You will want to use an Instant Command in Helix. See the Command Center. You probably want to send a CC Toggle.

    Tone Help

    Thanks for the advice! I am learning to play the solo in the mean time so it helps. But that's mostly playing wise. For example, I know he used a Mesa/Boogie amp for this (AxeFx sim i believe, though he used to use L6), but i am not so sure on, for example, the eq or distortion. I know he uses an Ibanez Prestige 7 with what i believe is a Liquifire in the neck. So mids go up quite a bit, but everything else i'm unsure about.

    HX Stomp USB to Mac Audio Output?

    I use the HX Stomp primarily for practice through a guitar amp, but would like sometimes to take it straight into my iMac's USB without having to fire up the amp (among other things). My iMac goes out digitally to a DAC (a DAC without an ADC isn't seen by the computer, btw, so can't be configured in Audio MIDI Setup -- but there's no need to do that anyway), then to my studio monitors (Dynaudio BM6As), not computer speakers. It's a lot more work to patch the HX Stomp's analog outputs into the system than it would be to just go in USB and set the computer's input to the device, leaving the computer's output on Digital Output. It requires me to connect two cables to the Stomp's analog outs, set them to line level, route the signal into another interface, etc. I like the HX Stomp for a convenient single source for guitar effects, but it would have been even better if it were plug-n-play with the computer. That said, it's not so much the fact that it can't be done but rather that the user manual is unclear about it.

    Yes I am using a wah, but I am only getting awful ear piercing feedback. Any hints on how to get the good kind? Also one other thing. I do a pick scratch attack in some songs, but even without a noise gate there is no sustain.

    ... and also try using the Hi Cut parameter in the cab settings. Lower the setting and see if it helps.

    HX Stomp Question

    You can send an effects chain into the front of a guitar amp, and into a separate path in HX stomp though an amp/cab model to FOH without using a send block. Put all the front of the amp effects on path 1. Put the amp/cab block as the last block and then move it down to path 2. Leave the output for path 1 to main L/R out. Set the output to path 2 to the send output. Connect the send output to FOH. This requires a splitter to get the stereo output out of the TRS send jack, but it sends a constant signal to FOH, just what you usually want. Then the main L/R goes to your stage amp, and the HX Stomp volume control provides a convenient volume control for your stage amp.

    That really opens up more questions than anything. Going into the main front input on your Marshall you were getting quite a bit of help from the Marshall pre amp and amp tone stack, so it really begs the question of whether you used the Helix pre-amp block or the full amp block. It also would likely require you to change the way the Helix amp model was dialed in. I would think you'd need to dramatically change the setup (tone knobs, gain, master volume, channel volume, etc) of the Helix amp block once you go into the effects return given you're no longer getting the benefit of the Marshall pre amp and tone stack and most likely you'd be better off with the Helix amp block than the Helix pre amp block. Since you're now going through only the clean Marshall amplifier circuit, you'd also likely carry the Marshall volume louder and simply control that overall volume using the Helix master volume control.

    high end grainy distortion

    Is that "weird grainy high end distortion" kicking in for a second or so moments after the initial hit? I can hear that (faintly) but I'm not sure if I'm focusing on the right problem. If that is it.... here are a few things to try. Silverheads suggestion above of increasing the BIAS for the amp model a little... or a lot of needed. Usually 5 - 10 notches higher is enough. If it's a stock cab, try changing the MIC to a 121, and pull it back a few inches. I'm not saying you have to stay with the 121... I just find it's a great choice for tests like this. If it's an IR... make sure you try others. If all else fails.... turn on the INPUT PAD in global settings and see if it goes away. As for the hum after the chord rings out, that doesn't seem to be captured on the recording (is it?). Without hearing it I'd rather not speculate.

    Bank/Preset Footswitch Lock

    I completely understand your dilema, I really wish Line6 would put the bank up and bank down on the top row. Anyways, since you don't need those buttons at all, I suggest making a little cover for them out of some scrapwood, spray paint it black, and velcro it down over the bank up and bank down buttons. Low tech but it works!

    Wah pedals are great for getting controlled feedback. A wah is basically a volume boost in a narrow frequency band. The frequency is controlled by the pedal. So you can use the wah pedal to tune in on the frequency your guitar note(s) will feedback at, and get a nice controlled feedback.
