    Line 6 150 2X12 question

    I know I've deleted posts before. Even threads I started. Did you check the "options" section right by the "edit" section? If I recall right it gives you the option to "hide" or "delete" the post.

    I don't think you can delete it but you can change the title/heading to ignore or delete or something like that.

    Helix Native Problem

    From what I am seeing in other posts this is all about getting Native properly authorized with Line6. Make sure you have a proper internet connection first and deauthorize and then reauthorize Native. You can do that by clicking on the gear icon or your username in the bottom left hand corner of the Native screen. Bring up the Authorize/Deauthorize dialog box and re-authorize Native.

    Powercab considerations and thoughts

    Thank you dnostrand, yes this is very helpful. I'm aware that creating presets using headphones has its challenges; in fact, thinking of it it may actually be part of the issue I had with the wedge monitors. Still keeps me puzzled as to why the FOH sound was good (to the extent I really know, just hearsay; I probably need to talk again to the soundguy). I guess a very important factor here are the speakers used for FOH. My understanding is that these are essentially also supposed to be "FRFR", but given that no FRFR speaker sounds like the other this term is actually pretty meaningless to me. Anyway ...... With regards to your setup, I like the idea of having enough stage volume for gigs that don't need FOH signal and that you "simply" go from the PC+ to the mixer via XLR if so needed. For whatever reason I overlooked that option. And this brings me to my next misunderstanding which is about the mic modelling. If I understand correctly then the PC+ models are models of the actual cabinets without mic...... So theoretically you could still mic a PC+ using (for example) a real SM57 should you not want to use the modeled SM57. I was under the false assumption that a mic model was part of the sound coming from the PC+. This only seems true when it is in FRFR mode (and the cab + mic model come from the Helix). Now, the downside of your setup for me would be that I need two devices connected when practising/ developing patches at home and I would need to use this setup with " normal volume", which I'm sure my wife and kids won't appreciate all the time :-) Altogether enough food for thought on how to achieve what I want (sufficient on-stage volume of decent quality). Based on my learnings so far I'm probably better of with a FRFR speaker (again, whatever that means) and leave the PC for what it is for the time being. Thanks again for your reply, this forum is really a great source of information and positive input/support from experienced people is highly appreciated !!!

    I think its moreso that L6 already has money from almost everyone here and we direct line to L6 via customer service. TGP is basically a big advertising platform full of people who aren't already L6 users so if they can show up and look pro with excellent CS in front of the people who didn't already buy their stuff, it probably helps sell some stuff. I do think a more involved company presence on this forums would be nice, though.

    I doubt it's in the dictionary, so I guess it depends on who you play scrabble with. It's the noise redundant fanboys of ANYTHING make before they blindly defend some ridiculous point.

    I wasn't just refering to the Helix. I was talking about life in general, I thought that was clear. One constant with expectations is that you will be disappointed a lot if that's how you think. As far as the OP goes, yeah, I agree with you there. That's why I just gave him a link to have an email sent when it's ready and not a finger wagging. "how dare you expect anything" lecture. It was really the other posts I was reffering to........ But how dare you people expect anythng!!!!!! (That was a joke)

    That's the reason I read that forum but have yet to post over there. Someone mentioned once (could be complete garbage) that the Line 6's Helix guys post there but not here because we're a bunch of jerks. That's a bit of a head scratcher to me. Granted I haven't read the whole history of this board, but I don't think we compare to some of the snark there. If anything I'd say we're more likely to be friendly to Line 6 since we're bought in. To be clear, I do think it's important they keep a presence on those pages, and I think they do an excellent job over there of portraying Line 6 in a positive light. Edit: And to the original poster, I liked the comparison. I know there are tons of them out there, but I never get tired of sound stuff. I'm a big fan of sound. Used my ears my whole life (though the wife claims less effectively than I should sometimes).
  15. On my JTV-89, one of the length compensation (intonation) screws of the saddle is moving, because the part that holds it is not at the right place. the displaced part looks like a wire or snap ring, it's not easy to see because it is so tiny. is it possible to repair this? I cannot move the wire, but maybe there is a trick to do this. I think it was done wrong when the guitar was assembled and I never noticed until now.

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    I'm not disappointed with Helix, I'm not waiting around for firmware updates. I just found out there was a 2.71 update like last week. All the people who come in with "Herpadurr, don't expect this company to do what this company does, herpadurr." are totally unnecessary, though. I think the OP's original word choice made it sound a little more dire than was intended, but the conversation that followed has been beat to death around here. L6 knows what they need to do to stay competitive in the platform.

    Then, as I said, if that's the case, get ready for a bunch of disappointment in life. I know people/the marketplace will expect companies to "play ball", that's their nature. But I think you do yourself a disservice to expect things from people/companies that aren't said. You''ll be disappointed a lot. That's been my experience. I choose not to be disappointed.

    I've already had this conversation across several forums. You jump into a market with known competitors, you gotta compete whether you make an official press release or not, or eventually you get dusted. I agree that when you buy something, buy it for what it does, not what you hope it will do. At the same time, when you buy into a market segment that's competitive and the previous competitors have established the status quo, you are going to be expected to "play ball".

    I would say it's "completely reasonable" that many people would feel entitled to an update, knowing what little I know about the human condition. BUT, I'm a believer in going by what is said, not what people may think they are entitled to. So I would say it's not " completely reasonable" to expect them to follow suit. If it ain't said, shouldn't expect it. If you do do that kind of thing, be prepared for a lot of disappointment in life. Starting now I guess.

    TGP has basically become a bunch of 40+ sh1tposters who don't really understand how trolling/sh1tposting works.

    Just for some context. I’d posted the same over at TGP, and the same user had a pop at me over there too, for my temerity of posting something so unoriginal. I just think that’s bang out of order.
  23. Anyone else getting this? Is it expected? At 48KHz, on any of my DAWs, Helix Native sounds fine. ...but at 44.1KHz, I'm getting some really nasty tones / frequencies super-imposed. Thanks!

    You don't have to take anything seriously from anyone who uses Bleeding Cowboy font in the current year.

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    I started mowing my lawn yesterday (washington state, so I had to wait for the rain to subside). The lawn was so high I to push the mower at a raised angle on the first pass. The air filter cover vibrated off and got sucked into the blades along with the filter. I'm waiting for parts to arrive from Amazon. And now its started to rain again. If 2.8 arrives before the parts I'll have something to do while I'm waiting. If not, I'll keep hacking away at the grass while I wait for 2.8. Either way, life goes on. Brahhhhhh! Ob la di!
