    How do you guys feel about the Dirt Pedals?

    I owned quite some decent drive pedals over the years, but I gotta say that the Heir Apparent is easily up to even the very best of them. I don't think I'll ever create a patch without it anymore. Does a fantastic job in front of pretty much any amp at almost any gain. Not a too huge fan of the fuzz boxes though, even different input impedance settings don't seem to deliver the right dynamic behaviour.

    Helix Bug Reports

    Firmware: 2.82 (HX Stomp) Global Settings: Everything as per default, except individual patch settings Bug: Occasionally when playing (either through headphones or line out into the FX return of my amp), the signal from the Stomp will develop a 'crackle', and a small time later, the overall volume level will drop. Sometimes this comes back up again, and sometimes not. Changing through a few presets will sometimes fix it, although sometimes it needs to be changed multiple times to clear it. I've noticed the issue with multiple amp models, and I believe it happened once on the previous firmware (2.6 something) but I only played one extended session with this when I bought the unit and then upgraded to 2.82. I hadn't noticed the issue with 2.82 and so thought it was fixed, but it recurred a few times in the last week or two. I have tried to record dry in and wet out with the Stomp to capture the issue, but it always seems to fix itself by the time I get the USB in (or it could be that the USB fixes the issue somehow!).

    Guys who have gone from all tube amp to all digital. Opinions?

    I use my HX Stomp into an Orange Pedal Baby powering a 4x12 cab - it sounds phenomenal - certainly the best sound I've had out of my helix and it's full on amp-in-the-room feel.

    Sonic Port + iOS 13 = NG?

    So, with my non-VX Sonic Port I've been bricked ! Very nice.
  7. Thanks! :-) I may have expressed it unclear (I'm danish). What I am after is sound1 to fade out and sound2 to fade in - using the expression pedal from top to bottom. Sort of seemless transition. Is that possible to do with the HX??
  8. that´s a nice idea, but it doesn´t work that way...the level adjustments are totally digital and after the analog input...that means, if it distorts, you´d only make the already distorted signal lower...;-(

  11. This sounds very interesting! I assume you mean one of the covers on the back? is it the bottom left, bottom middle, bottom right or top right? Or several of them? Thanks, photo below.

    HX FX - Tap Tempo Flashing Light

    Hi, I'm not sure if im doing something wrong here, but when I tap the tempo in to a click or to a drummer i find that the flashing light always seems to flash just after the beat i'm trying to tap into! I know there is human error to a degree but i've never experienced this previously with the M9, the light would flash to my tap of the button. Am i tapping too many times (usually 3-4 taps)? Any ideas how I get get the lit up flash to match my tap of the button instead of just after? Thanks
  13. Worst case scenario get a short male to female cable and tie the end to your strap. This is necessary in some guitars with active pickups, even if the transmitter fits.

    Hum in headphones

    Anytime you describe a sound it can be problematic because the question becomes if I am thinking of the same sound you are. Especially the term "hum," as I don't usually use that term unless there's a problem (like from a ground loop). Nevertheless, high gain presets will have a lot of noise when you're not playing. That's part of what high gain is all about. There is always sound happening around your electric guitar so even when you aren't strumming, electrical noise is happening and is being sent to the Firehawk. High gain amps heavily ramp up everything they receive with . . . well . . . with gain. So even when you're not really playing anything, yes, there's gonna be a bunch of noise. One thing you can do to see if we're thinking of the same thing is use the Firehawk's noise gate, or place a noise gate at the start of the chain on purpose. If the noise you're hearing subsides a bit (not disappears, but drops in intensity), then yes, we're thinking of the same thing, and it's perfectly normal.
  15. It will but you’ll have to let the jack out a little on the guitar and place a rubber washer between it and the body to where it’ll make contact With the transmitter. I’ve got a post on here describing and pics of how I did it and others have done it also with how I showed.

    AES and Axe-Fx III - Not working

    What Axe-Fx version? III? There are some reporting that their II works with it, which was my experience. But the III doesn't seem to.

    Help! I messed up my Helix!

    So, weird thing. It magically started working again today. I didn't change anything. As long as it doesn't happen again, I think this is going to be a fun board!
  18. It's possible . . . I'm not sure it's the best way to do it. To do what you want, you would need to connect the expression pedal to control some option that adds dirt. For example, pushing it past a point could activate an overdrive pedal OR it could increase the drive of an overdrive pedal. It can be tempting to try to mimic an old way of doing things with a new device. However, I think the HX Effects has a lot better options. Snapshots are probably the best example, where with a push of a button you can change up to 64 settings in your signal chain. It doesn't take anywhere close to 64 changes to add dirt.
  19. Yesterday
  20. SOLUTION: I had the same issue which sounded like a shielding ground issue. The problem sounds like a static "spark"( which shouldn't happen if the electronics are properly shielded). I removed the electronic cover plate (back of the guitar) and then used a sanding block to "lightly" clean the cover mounting surface (on the guitar). I used a little alcohol to clean the surface after sanding. I also removed any raised bumps from the cover mounting surface so the cover would fit flush. I reinstalled the cover and made sure all the screws were tight. No more "static tick" sounds! Bill

    212 plus

    Ok Thanks I've started removing all my speaker cabs in my patches. And using the speaker models in PC212 they sound much better then the Helix cab speakers. The bypass thing is you always have to remember to hit it when you change to a new patch. I going to edit all my patches it will take some time but when I'm done I will rock! Thanks Man....

    How to use Ext2 pedal to switch amp channels? - HX Effects

    So the reason why I was testing amp switching with the second jack was because my current amp will switch from clean to the distorted channel but not back to clean with a second press. I've tried every single combination of setting (momentary/latch, tip, ring, etc). It only ever changes the channel then won't change back. When I had a Mesa Triple Rec my Boss GT-10 would change the channel from clean to distorted channel 3 and back and forth each hit. Granted, this Bugera amp has three external switching inputs and includes a clean channel input when my Mesa did not. So I was wondering if I would have to either hookup to both output jacks or use a stereo to dual mono cable to be able to switch back and forth. Of course, if I have to use both jacks then I can't deal because I need one for volume/wah, but I was testing and got curious. Rev.

    POD HD and my amp...

    POD HD and my amp...

    it really depends on what you are trying to do - as far as tone is concerned. take me as an example; prior to going all digital, i ran everything in one long chain. no loops. i designed my tone based on that system - what does x sound like when it is plugged into y other people look at me and are like "where's your loops, you need to use a dozen cables and tap dance over wires to avoid tripping" (but that was before going digital. now there is no amp.) So, then, the question is - why this amp. you are using a modeler, why plug fake amps into a real amp, why not get some kind of monitor that doesn't add to the tone. sure, sounds like garbage on its own, but lets your modeled tone shine. Or are you trying to use the amp as part of the tone.

    POD HD and my amp...

    Connect the POD to the amp input only if you use it just for the effects (ie no amp models).. You could put the POD in the FX LOOP of the tube amp no problem (let say just for using some effects and not amp models) but some effect models like overdrives and distortions would be in bad position in the chain, since usually they should be placed between the guitar and the pre-amp (real or modeled).. I would rather suggest to connect your guitar to the POD and the POD to the RETURN input of the tube amp. Doing so you, ie basically bypassing just the tube amp pre-amp, you could then nicely combine several HD pre-amp models with the real power-amp and speaker of the tube amp, plus all the FX models. IMO the above one is the simpler and effective way to connect the POD to a tube amp. Good and easy results are guarantee. In the above configuration you should preferably select the pre-amp version of the amp models available and disable the cab models. But if you don't want to bypass the pre-amp part of your amp (and you are not interested in using instead the pre-amp models), you should instead use the 4 cable method, which is a more flexible way of working but as its name says it requires 4 cables and more tweakings to work good. You can easily find several posts around about the 4CM if you are interested to it. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

    FX100 users who have upgraded to Helix

    Looking for users that have migrated from owning an FX100 to purchasing a Helix. I'm currently using an FX100 for gigging, running through an Fender Bassman and a Marshall 4x12. I'm interested in improving my overall sound, and I'm probably going to switch to going direct to FOH very soon anyways. From what I've been able to glean, it seems that the big benefit of upgrading would be that I would gain the newer modeling technology, but give up the tone matching capability I have now with the FX100? I'm wondering if those that have actually done it have felt like they received a good value in making the upgrade? Thanks in advance for your perspectives.
