    Digital distortion

    Yep. Then use the amp blocks master volume to bring the level back up.
  3. I know it's a stupid sounding title, however, on one of the earlier firmware levels I was able to direct connect Midi in and out, and use button 12 to toggle snap shot 1/2. A lot of my presets have only 2 snapshots, and I don't use tap tempo at all, so it saved me from having to press buttons 1/7 and go into snapshot view, I'm usually in 8 presets view. With the current level of firmware, shorting the midi in & out causes a kind of feedback loop that freezes and locks up the Helix. Has anyone else messed around with this? I wish the helix had more footswitch programming options.

    Helix Native Standalone?

    I wish Helix Native had it's own Standalone version. But, since it doesn't... Curious about what host you're using for Helix Native if you're using it for live use. GigPerformer for Mac or PC Ableton Live for Mac or PC

    Helix under older OSX versions?

    See, I'm not talking about HX Edit, just about using the Helix as a class compliant audio interface. The mixer app of my Zoom isn't working under SL, either, but I can still use it as a simple stereo I/O device.

    Helix under older OSX versions?

    Yep - Snow Leopard is not listed as a supported OS in the HX Edit download. Interesting that your Zoom still works though. You're in a spot that I will find myself in very soon - great that the Mac lasted so long, but nobody's developing anything for the OS now.

    import hx fx presets into hx stomp?

    No there's not. You have to have a device connected to view anything in HX Edit. You COULD do it with Helix Native if you purchased that. To transfer the presets to the Stomp you will need to reduce your block count and save that preset, then import it to the Stomp. This isn't necessarily as hard as it sounds even without Native. Simply edit it down to six blocks while the HX FX is connected, and then save that preset to your PC. Then unplug HX FX, plug in HX Stomp, and import that preset.

    HX Stomp Midi commands

    That was one of my disappointments with the Stomp too in the midi realm. It seemed like it would be wise to have a preset advance or back off command. Still, with the Morningstar, you have SO many control options that I don't think having the controller emulate FS4 and FS5 is a big deal. The only thing you'd be missing out on is the expression pedal option, but you could leave that to the Morningstar too. Still, another option that I liked even better was having the Morningstar have a button set to cycle stomp modes. From there you can use the Stomp itself, while in "preset" mode to move up or down presets, and in my opinion, it's very easy to do.

    Sonic Port + iOS 13 = NG?

    Update...mine worked for 10 minutes and is now back to being unresponsive. No changes made between the time it worked and then stopped working.

    3 Sigma Guitar IR's

    As said, try normalizing them. You don't lose anything (for obvious reasons, try with a copy).

    L6 Link

    A regular XLR mic cable will work OK for the L6 Link connection with short distances and minimal devices. It can become problematic with longer runs and a lot of devices, though.

    Sonic Port + iOS 13 = NG?

    My still not working :(

    Helix under older OSX versions?

    Well, my OSX is *way* older (Snow Leopard was released in 2009), so there's no way to run anything from Line6 on it anymore, be it HX Edit or the actual driver. But, the same is true for my Zoom Interface - it does work fine in class compliant mode, though. And from all I know, Helix is supposed to work like that, too - at least I remember that @Digital_Igloo once posted something about it.

    HX Stomp Long press function

    The reason they haven't implemented it is that in order to do it, it would mean that the short press things would have to be triggered on the footswitch release rather than the press. It's not completely a dealbreaker, as other manufacturers do this. But it might be something people would have to get used to. It would also mean having a momentary option for footswitches wouldn't be possible for switches with a long press function.

    Turning off IR to Powercab only?

    I may be wrong but in the case some of your presets require too much DSP to be able to split your outputs, it seems to me that you can do that with snapshots. For example from the image below without spliting the signal and putting IR'block before the last EQ Snapshots 1 (to 4) with IR activated and EQ desactivated or set to one way Snapshots 5 (to 8) with IR desactivated and EQ set to another way. Each snapshot may have some differents states for each block

    Digital distortion

    Then turn down the headphones output volume and see if the buzz goes away and let us know... In the manual - which I recommend reading when you have issues - on page 18 you will find reference to the input In-Z option which can alter input impedance: https://line6.com/data/6/0a020a4010c935bb66a4c0c44f/application/pdf/HX Stomp Manual - English .pdf

    Talk box using Helix Mic

    I'm planning on getting another talkbox soon, I picture running it this way in my rig. I run a preset per song, and utilize snapshots to change between sounds in the songs. Usually not needing more than 4 snaps. So I run in preset/snapshot mode (4/4). I would run the talkbox in the Helix FX Loop and get the input/outputs of the talkbox/FX Block set right. Then in the preset I'd assign a Talkbox Snapshot to turn on the FX Block (as well as turn off any direct to FOH guitar sound as the main sound would come through my vocal mic then from the talkbox). Unless I wanted to get complicated and run a mix of talkbox and regular guitar...then I'd make adjustments to my regular guitar output.

    3 Sigma Guitar IR's

    some of them are louder than others, and I get that as different pup's have different outputs....just seem really low. Unless I'm overthinking, its basically an EQ applied to my guitar to make it sound 'similar' to that guitar/pup setup. (I get its not perfect)....but I'd also think you'd want your input/output of the block to be the same whether active/bypassed.

    Helix under older OSX versions?

    I have a Late 2009 iMac running OSX 10.12.6 (Sierra) and have no problems running HX Edit or connecting my Helix LT. Can you see the Helix in Garage Band or your sound settings (System Preferences/Sound/Input)?

    HX Stomp Midi commands

    Thanks phil, I am using a morningstar MC6 to control perimeters. I will try these midi cc messages. This should be an easy fix for Line 6 to do. But what do I know?

    L6 Link

    L6 Link cable is the same as an AES cable. An AES cable can be used as an XLR cable, but not vice versa because of how the electronics work. If you're looking to save money from L6's brand of AES cable, or want a different length than what they offer, just go with any brand of AES cable. I use Hosa AES cables and they work fine.

    Talk box using Helix Mic

    Google'd and found the manual. It seems that if you were using the mics that came with it, it sends the output from the mics to the output of the pedal, so that may always be "on". The banshee changes the output to the tube only. If that is the case and when the tube is on, the output is on as well, you may have to throw the talkbox in a loop on the helix with a gain block set to 0 when the talk box is "on". That way only the sound from the tube would go to the PA.

    HX Stomp Midi commands

    Not really. If you assign the Preset Down and Preset Up functions to FS4 and FS5 in the Global Settings menu, you can use CC52 and CC53 to emulate those switches and perform those functions. But that would only really be useful if you're not using the external footswitches for anything else.

    HX Stomp Midi commands

    Is there a midi command that can scroll through (up and down) the presets of the HX stomp?
  26. I wonder if some of you might have advice for me about my powercab woes. First as of this moment I am primarily a bedroom player and I am comparing my powercab to an open back Princeton Reverb clone I built. I am running a Helix rack into the power cab and no matter what presets I use, ones I build or ones I download from preset packages or user preset, the powercab seems thin to me. I so far have mostly spent time with the speaker models. I have a 1x12 open back extension cab that I can run my Princeton through that has a cannabis rex in it and that speaker is full sounding with nice lows and the power cab version with any of the fender amp only models sounds no where near as full. Am I doing something wrong? I would have thought I closed back cab might have more low end to be honest. I really want to make the powercab work. I get the concept that in a live situation that the lack of bass may not be a bad thing, after all that's what bass players are for and the guitar signal needs to stay out of their way, but at home I would like to hear what I hear from my real amps. Oh, I also have an egnater tweaker 40 that I run through a 1x12 and it is way more full sounding as well. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks! Salty
