    Looper playback volume too low?

    Hey taldavid! Did you solve your looper volume problems? I would be very curious because I have the exact same problem with my Helix LT: Looper is at 0.0 db but the playback plays only half as loud as I record it. I tried mono and stereo looper, Single and 6 looper... still same problem. My firmware was at 2.60 and I hoped an update would solve my problem but the issue still occurs on 2.71 as well... Kind of desperate already... Any help, please? Thanks
  5. Thanks all for help and answers so far! :-) My situation will be with the HX Stomp = max 6 simultaneous blocks per preset. 5 blocks are already reserved. I only have 1 Block free for boost and slapback delay Echoplex like.

    HX Stomp FAQ

    Yes,separately alls well,works as it should, but if I activate my solo Footswitch(FS5) the wah wont auto engage or work at all, and if I activate wah and then activate Footswitch the wah will lock on to where ever it was when I hit the FS5 eg Toe full forward or half way etc. I'm fully updated to the latest firmware KEA - MAIN.hlx

    Did the house have Phantom Power turned on? The XLR outputs are unpredictable with phantom power (some have issues, others don't, etc... etc...) but thin/attenuated tone is a common theme. The good news is that Phantom does not hurt the Helix, it just has a negative effect on the output. It's a well documented issue/concern in these forums... lots to read already.
  8. @Etienne73 In the Helix I use the Kinky Boost to accomplish this... but in my old HD500 I used to use "Tube Boost Dry" (EP-1) and "Tape Boost Dry" (EP-3). Those were the tones of the different echo plex pre-amps without delays. Those models are available in the HELIX under legacy effects. They don't have the "dry" distinction, but I'm sure if you kept the repeats off it would act very similar. I'm not suggesting this is THE solution, I'm just saying there are other options you can try :)

    Delaune vs Fremen vs MBritt patches - a review

  10. Hi :-) I can't test it myself yet. I will get my HX Stomp next week. But I'm already planning my first preset with all 6 simultaneous possible blocks. flanger > phaser > transistor tape delay > amp > IR > reverb I need Echoplex preamp sound characteristics as boost and echoing in one block in this preset.
  11. Hi, Not sure that is the way it works, but what I do know is the “Kinky Boost” in Helix is based on the Xotic EP Boost, which in turn is supposed to be a recreation of the original EP-3 Echo Machine pre-amp. It is built into the Helix under distortion section, so there must have been a reason to include it as a separate effect.

    Limitations of using parallel amp / speaker models

    I looked into parallel processing extensively when doing my multiband processing preset pack. So to add to your tips, here are some more. Some amps draw a lot more CPU power than others. So how many amps you can add depends on the amps+cabs you choose. In my 4-band presets using the Brit Trem Jump, Brit Plexi Jump, Solo Lead OD, and German Mahadeva, it wasn't possible to have four Amp+Cabs without running out of CPU. However, a workaround that works well is to use two separate Amps, and feed them into one Cab. You lose the ability to tweak each cab individually, but many times, it's the amps that benefit the most from tweaking anyway. Although this doesn't apply to your situation where you're feeding into the Guitar and Aux In to get stereo, for a given amount of blocks, a parallel path within a single chain will run out of CPU faster than a single path within two chains, set to the same input (e.g., Host in Helix Native). One of my favorite aspects of Helix is how you can get really great stereo imaging out of it. This isn't always relevant to live use, but for the Native version, it's incredible to get stereo imaging without having to use delays or other workarounds :)

    Odd preset after updated to 2.71 on HX Effects

    Many, many thanks for this response, you've assured me that there is nothing technically wrong with the unit. It makes sense to me, and yes, I've already overwritten that preset. All else seems to work well with the unit thus far. I am now wading my way through the Pilot's Guide. Much to learn. Again, thanks not just for the response, but the clarification.

    This is kind if a stab in the dark but was any phantom power applied? Maybe even accidentally for a moment?

    Thanks Gaz. That's good to know. Now I need to investigate why it's not working.
  16. XT Live might, might be too old for a JTV. Best you use the interface device to link the guitar to the computer for updates or customized patches (and Alt Tunes) thru Workbench HD. XT Live won't handle HD firmware guitars, they are two generations removed.

    IR length discussion

    I think you brought up a great analogy to audio compression trends of the last two decades. As a lover of true lossless formats (such as Flac) it has always driven me nuts that the great compromise of the iPod era was that people embraced crappy . . . in many cases EXTREMELY crappy, recordings of their favorite songs in order to have the convenience of portability. My ears could never stand anything less than 320 AAC format and mp3 was absolutely out of the question. What's funny is that people who embraced bad mp3's staunchly argued with me that it "did not matter." I could get the emotional baggage they were carrying, as no one wants to feel like their method has problems. What's interesting is if they'd let me show them the differences through an A/B comparison - once heard, it could never go UNHEARD (and I almost invariably felt kind of bad for showing them), and in real live studies (not done by me) people do show that subconsciously they DO care because they often choose to listen to better recorded audio for much longer than trashy mp3 recordings when subjected to them in blind tests. Now that memory just keeps getting cheaper and cheaper, we're seeing a push towards higher quality audio. Is that good? I think so. Quality DOES matter, at least to the point that our human body becomes the biggest obstacle to experiencing better versions of things (and who knows, maybe then we'll rip out our original eyes and ears and start implanting them with higher quality synthesized stuff). However, I get cruisinon2's point - look, the Helix does not sound like trash. It sounds beautiful. Nobody realizing longer IRs bring more to the table should look at their Helix, feel threatened, and never want to turn it on again. At the same time though, I do not expect the Helix to be THE last, or even MY last, modeler. I do expect Line 6, or Fractal, or whoever comes next to one day pull the next big rabbit out of their hat and it will no doubt embrace, and SHOULD embrace MANY advancements. It will have a FAR better processor (I mean, come on, processors advance so much just year over year and the old stuff gets cheaper and cheaper), FAR better memory and ram . . . honestly it better have crap I can't even dream up yet. Those engineers are going to need to be aware of the modest improvements that can come from things like the videos above show. I demand that of them and so should you. In the mean time though, those of us not involved in the design of these things can choose how interested we want to be in knowing about what those improvements could be. In cruisinon2's case, that probably won't be all that much. Me, I DO want to know about them because I just think it's cool lollipop. Still, just like cruisinon2, at the end of the day my biggest improvements are going to come from my practice time, not what modeler I buy.
  18. Hard to tell in that light if the connector is keyed correctly, you might want to double check that.

    Spider IV clipping at initial attack

    Do you have it plugged into an AC converter transformer so that it can run off of the AC mains in Argentina? These do not have adaptive switch supplies that will run on any wall socket. Have to have a unit made for the Argentine AC mains wall socket, or an AC converter transformer that will convert to the correct wall socket voltage. That looks like a power transformer for US wall voltage, which is the wrong kind.

    L2t/l2m for home use?

    Folks seem to be loving the Powercab plus. For me, I love my L2t and L2m combo at home. It doea it all--electric, acoustic, bass, and stereo. It leaves me not wanting for anything more.

    Amp Channel Switching With HX Stomp

    This will do it if you can get hold of one - http://www.nuxefx.com/show-9-243-1.html . Great bit of kit. I got mine a couple of years ago on eBay from a German seller but I can't see anyone selling them in Europe at present.

    Volume Fluctuation

    When I started this thread my Helix was always connected to my computer via USB for patch tweaking, and to my DXR12 for monitoring. I have no idea if that affected the problem or not. I haven't used the XLR out in a long time. I did have a noise problem with the USB connected, that using XLR out fixed. My current situation has me back to a combo amp. So my Helix rig only gets sporadic use.

    It sounds like you also have your computer connected via USB. Could this be part of the issue?

    Volume Fluctuation

    I don't have a definitive answer for you. I bought a PC+ and connect to that with the L6 cable and then out of the PC+ to FOH. I never chased down the cause of the problem that I started this thread about and never contacted Line 6 about it. It was only happening with XLR out and it was not a constant occurrence. Since there were ways to work around it, I just let it go. I'm not currently gigging the Helix rig, so ignorance is bliss here.
  26. Hi! I bought a FX 100 and when i try to jam on both sections of Music Library i cant hear the tracks. The guitar works right, but i supous that the tracks should sound in my amp...thats right? I use the APP in an Android phone. Can somebody help me, please!!!
