    2.8 update stuck in 'boot failure, entered update mode'

    My Helix is stuck in Boot Failed. Entering update mode and neither HX Edit or Updater can see the Helix. I'm on Windows 10. Tried rebooting, uninstalling (reboot) reinstalling drivers (reboot) and noting. Any suggestions?

    Best Power Amp for Helix

    When you use the effects return of your tube heads, how do you set your patches? Are you using just the preamp models?

    Firmware 2.8 and DT Amps

    The DT has MIDI in and MIDI out jacks... The cable on the Uno are labeled as to which one go to which jack. Just hook everything up and run Line 6 Monkey, and it will do everything for you.
  5. I'd seen several posts about how inserting Helix Native in a DAW could cause a crash. I was just about to post what seemed to be the problem before 1.80 came out - if you dragged it into a mono track, you'd get the crash; but not if you dragged it into a stereo track. However, I've been able to drag 1.80 into mono tracks without issue, so if that was indeed the problem, it has been fixed. I also verified that my multiband preset pack works perfectly in 1.80.

    Firmware 2.8 and DT Amps

    I did some research on this, found and ordered the M-Audiosport Uno. That cable has one usb end to pllug into a computer and then two midi ends. if the amp has one midi jack, will this cable work by itself? or do I need something else? This would explain why over the years with the helix, the midi commands never seemed to do anything!

    Hx stomp more blocks

    Hello, I used the websites search function and used the keywords hx stomp blocks. And i actually did not find any with support. The highest votes for any asking for more blocks is 145 votes. But that person asked for 12 effects blocks. So the wording isnt exactly what i want. I wont run 12 effects. i would have expected thousands of votes

    Hx stomp more blocks

    I'm an LT user.... but I've always found the 6 block limit on the Stomp to be an odd number.. and very limiting. Even though I don't own a Stomp.... I will upvote your idea.

    Helix Bug Reports

    FYI - I deleted then reinstalled HX Edit, same issue. However, I did a full factory reset on the Helix (holding buttons 9 & 10 and starting) and that fixed it :)

    Firmware 2.8 and DT Amps

    What happened was I just looked for all the software instead of something specific and the thing that came up at the top of the list was a Line 6 monkey update ver 1.77. I just assumed it was included because it was part of an update at that time that took care of issues with the Shuriken. However, after looking further. I found the most recent firmware update was, as stated earlier, 2.0 which was 2012. Sorry for the confusion. I'll edit my previous post.

    POD HD 500X keeps crashing.

    Sometimes crashes that occur after a few hours can be caused by power management settings on USB Controller. You can get at it from the Device Manager and settings can be in the Advanced Power Management Settings. Basically, you want to make sure the Power Management is not idling the Controller. Or at least eliminate it as a suspect. Other things to check: BIOS version and Chipset drivers for the motherboard are current...

    HX Stomp Effects loop between Pre and Power Amp?

    Thanks for the replies. Kilrahi - yes exactly, I run external pedals in the effects loop in all of those scenarios. I *guess* that the best way to mimic it would be to use a separate amp and cab model in the hx, and put the send/return loop in between them? I don't know how that would sound - not sure if it would matter that all the power amp modelling would be after my delay, reverb etc. Or maybe I should just ditch the loop and have all my physical pedals up front...

    Hx stomp more blocks

    Voted. I don't think yours is the first ideascale to suggest this, so you might want to hunt for similar ideas and vote for those. At the same time though, while I haven't taken a scientific poll, this seems to clearly be the most requested feature for the Stomp, so I am confident that Line 6 is at least considering it. Whether or not our collective desires will override their reasons they didn't originally go down that route, it's hard to say.

    Firmware 2.8 and DT Amps

    The M-Audio MIDISport Uno is a good option. The problem with inexpensive USB to MIDI adapters is that they almost always depend on the built-in Windows MIDI drivers, and those drivers don't handle the type of Sysex streaming required for these sort of updates very well.

    Hx stomp more blocks

    I notice everyone always says to put these ideas on ideascale. But i also notice a lot of good ideas do not get votes. So please help vote up my idea. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/HX-Stomp-no-6-block-limit/960074-23508?submitted=1 So if HX Stomp is 1/2 the full Helix. Literally a single chip version of the dual chip helix. We should theoretically be able to use half the amounts of blocks a full helix could use. To my knowledge helix can make a preset (dsp limited) to roughly 32 block chain. So 16 blocks would be off a single chip. So we shouldnt be limited to 6. Let us put blocks until we run out of dsp. I do not run stereo, so i would like to use more blocks (mono) until i run out of dsp. At least give us 8 blocks. My current 6 block limiting chain is (all mono) 1) minotaur 2) teemah 3) amp 4) ir 5) digital delay 6) legacy hall reverb My dream chain would be (all mono) (dsp limiting) 1) Kinky comp 2) minotaur 3) teemah 4) amp 5) ir 6) digital delay 7) legacy hall reverb 8) effects loop block (for volume pedal) 9) looper So dont know if i would run out of dsp if i loaded that on a single chip but again i would adjust it until i run out of dsp. The looper wouldn't be essential since i have a boss rc-30 Would love at least 5 snapshots also so one for each fs plus my external fs4 and fs5 but that will be put in another idea submission.

    Firmware 2.8 and DT Amps

    That's it, guys! The 2.0 Firmware update on the DT25 (or on any DT amp series) will solve all of your problems (Changing the Topology, Tube config., Power Amp, Reverb and going straight to the Power section of the amp via L6 Link) I just update the firmware and it works great. Problem solved! P.S. When you're going to update the amp, don't forget this: the Midi In is going to the Midi out section, and the Midi out is going in the Midi in. USB Midi Interface Used: E-MU Systems - Midi 1x1

    Preset suddenly gone POD HD 500

    Curious, it is not technically possible to delete a preset location. Do you mean that the preset location was initialized to a "New Tone" patch...basically a blank patch. A couple of thoughts... Are you 100% certain that you did not accidentally change set lists? Are you running with a PC connected with Edit running?
  18. Thanks! Looks like the Seymour Duncan bridge might be rated at 16.09k. I'm not great with electronics when it comes to resistors. Can I still get this pickup and just have it professionally installed? Thanks!

    I was wondering about this too. It makes sense in Native, but where, besides the hardware itself, would HX Edit be saving to?

    Bug with Joystick After 2.80 Update

    Hey, thanks, everyone. I will try some of the suggestions with Global Settings. Yeah, it's a big pain to make presets without HX edit so hopefully, even if it's a repair it's worth it. I am so addicted to this thing lol. Sorry, it's a Helix LT and is about 1.5 years old.

    Number of factory presets and templates in 2.8?

    Well, yea. Not to point out the obvious, but the update instructions were pretty clear about that already. I just assumed OP read those?

    2.8 update stuck in 'boot failure, entered update mode'

    Having this same issue with Mac. My issues have not been resolved however. Tried everything listed but no resolution. "Stuck at Boot failure. Entered Update Mode!". Red : -3 in upper left corner of window. I'm stuck because Updater and Helix Edit 2.8 will not recognize the Helix Floor. Yeehah. Not sure where to go from here.

    pure lazy question I think, but i feel i'll get a better understanding than trying to find and read about it. what is the intent and functionality of this window that pops up when i go to save a patch? I went from 2.6 to 2.8, so I have some catching up to do.

    Spider V MkII Update- new software for Spider V

    The bigger ones , particularily the 240 as fine for metal (from 70s Sabbath to scandinavian Death too) if you make judicious use of Post EQ and choose the cab type based on sound rather than by its useless name (Treat it like a Fixed EQ stage rather than as "a cab" ) .............. I could do with a cheap 60 as a practice amp , it`s the smallest one with Wireless

    Helix Ideascale Community Submissions

    Just added this to the Ideascale.... https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Master-Setting-for-effects-allowing-you-to-edit-multiple-presets/960070-23508 Long story short.... I think it would be a cool feature to be able to group effects so that if you edit one you edit all across the presets.... so if you dial in a reverb to suit the room in preset 1A and you have preset 1A grouped with 5C, 18D and 23A , it will adjust all the reverbs in those presets automatically. Not being able to do something like this is why I still keep my analog drive pedals around since I find I have to tweak those the most from venue to venue when I gig.
