    Helix Cubase DAW control + midi snapshot change

    The behavior you're describing is what happens when a NOTE message is set to MOMENTARY. If you're using a NOTE message for the STOP command, check to see if it's set to MOMENTARY.

    Helix Command Center. Did you know it can do this?

    Yeah, its cool alright .... but Line 6 needs to add the feature to the Stomp firmware. That's the reason I returned mine ... I need to control external MIDI devices.

    A different recording latency issue?

  6. stormstudios

    Can't see recordings on a Mac

    something changed on your mac... Launch Terminal. Type "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES" in Terminal and press "Return." Hold 'Alt' right click on the Finder icon in the Taskbar, click 'Relaunch'. Then do you see the files? If you want to undo this, replace YES with NO in the above sequence and you're back to normal. If you saw them before and don't see them now, it's something mac-based.

    A different recording latency issue?

    This isn't really a Helix issue. Someone here MIGHT have an answer, but wouldn't you be more likely to get a proper answer to this by posting in the ProTools Forum? Heck, post in several DAW forums. Can't hurt. And when you do get the answer, come back and tell us.....:-)
  8. I don’t imagine this will be news to seasoned users, however newer users might not realise how powerful command center can be. Either way it’s still very cool that Helix can do this.

    Helix Cubase DAW control + midi snapshot change

    Almost nailed it but I still can't get it to work. -I programmed all my presets with the same command center values so that I can control Cubase transport from any of my presets -Cubase sends CC32, PC and CC69 messages to Helix for preset/snapshot switching on midi channel 2 -I've tried every possible combination of midi messages in the command center (MIDI CC, Bank/Prog, Note) on a different MIDI channel (3) and I still get weird feedback issues -CC64 isn't used anywhere At this point, I'm not sure whether Helix is the problem or if Cubase 10 is. If I assign no output to the midi track dedicated to helix in cubase, transport control will work like a charm but then, my presets won't change automatically following the track. If I assign the output of the track to helix, transport will respond but: -I get double the command I asked for (hit stop, helix changes preset, release footswitch, sends the stop command again when the footswitch is released) -when this happens, my command center gets all deprogrammed, all values are mixed up. I'm out of ideas here....

    Tip: Make a Mute Button for Multiple Paths

    I'm sorry, I wasn't at all clear and sorta changed topics without prior notice, LOL. I meant something like an XML dump of all the parameters.

    A different recording latency issue?

    Unfortunately it is not a consistent delay amount. It varies between 16ms-35ms, which is significant, as 16ms is almost 1/60th of a second. Protools has delay comensation and low latency monitoring but not a way to measure and offset, that i know of.

    A different recording latency issue?

    Can you adjust in ProTools a temporary negative delay offset for recording? That's how I solve it here in my DAW Logic.
  13. Both of your transmitters were using the same channel. It's a little tricky with the G10 since, unlike the G10S, there's no way to manual select the channel you want to use. You can still use multiple G10 systems on the same stage, but you have to make sure you go through the automatic channel selection process with each one. So one of you should plug his transmitter into its receiver and wait about 15 seconds for the receiver to find the best channel (the transmitter blinks when ready). Take that transmitter out - it's set. After that, so the same process with the second transmitter and receiver. The receiver will select a different channel than the first one because the second will receiver will see that as interference. Take that transmitter out, and you'll be all set. The key is to not plug the transmitters back into the receivers again. If you do, you'll have to do this process again.

    Effect Order (HD500)

    The same applies. 1. Treat virtual like you would physical. 2. There are things that sound better before, and things that sound better after. 3. Ignore 1 and 2, and do what needs done to make it sound the way you need it.

    upgrade advice needed!

    I own the 500 family of devices. I can't give any comparison, being that I don't have the H or XT. But, I can tell you this.... If you can't get the tone you need with the HD units, you aren't ever getting the tone. *this assumes you know that you are limited to 8 effects and 2 amps, as well as the list of amps and effects available. Obviously, more specialized needs may not be achieved.

    A different recording latency issue?

    So most of the threads I have found looking at latency when recording respond in a few basic ways: Always monitor through the Helix hardware for zero monitoring latency when playing/recording . The DAW requires setup and can cause latency. The topic I cannot find is: after addressing monitor based latency, in other words hearing latency as you play/record, no one discusses how to fix the actual recorded latent track. You can hear whatever degree of latency is occurring simply by having a track in input, not muted and listening to the heterodyne differential. I experience the disparity varying depending on the complexity of the session. (Am running Protools) So I monitor through the helix when I track a part by muting the output of the enabled track. The problem is that, after recording, the latency is an aspect of the track because it was delayed getting recorded. I know this because I have done exhaustive testing. I even went to the extent of mic'ing a metronome in sync to the internal metronome and can see there is a delay between the clicks. When recording melodies or rhythm parts that delay effects the rhythmic "feel" of my recorded parts and I find I consistently have to offset the part by moving it upstream to counter the delay caused in recording. I have gotten to the point where I will do a first pass where I am playing quarter notes or eighth notes just to see what I need to do in order to offset the track, post recording. Has anyone found a work around or solution for this? NOT monitor latency but actual track delay. If this particular/exact issue has been addressed/solved in another thread please link here. Thanks Thanks
  17. My friend on bass own a G10, I own a G10 for my guitar, and last week, on stage, my guitar was played in the bass amp !! It's the first time, we didn't had any problem before. Someone can telle us what is the problem, please ?

    Cool! There are so many POD vs Helix it's hard to know where to begin if you know what I mean. I think the XTL needs tp be replaced though for sure!

    Hosa CDL-313 S/PDIF-AES Interface

    RCA S/PDIF and XLR AES cables have different resistances. I was assured by people more knowledgable than me that that was sub-optimal. So I got this box finally. The power adaptor doesn't work in the EU, but I was able to get a universal wall wart at a regular all supply store and that worked just fine. Eventually I'll get a better one, like maybe the iFi iPower. I falsely assumed the 9V DC input would accept guitar pedalboard power supply cables, but it didn't. It's a smaller type of plug. So it works just as advertised. Kemper S/PDIF out goes into the box and an AES cable goes into the Helix AES/EBU input. The Helix picks up the signal fine and everything works as expected. One less AD/DA round in my rig now. Too bad the Helix can't run both S/PDIF and AES at once or I could eliminate one more. I just realized, since I'm already using my 1/4" main Left output to feed the Kemper, I now have two extra FX loops available in the Helix with this box. That's another reason to shell out the 100 I didn't even consider.

    Yamaha SPX90 Symphonic preset

    Here ya go! You should be able to get something out of this quick and dirty patch. You mentioned Bass - so I have included the basic "Tuck n' Go" (change to whatever suits) in the first slot followed by an Harmonic Flanger at 40% mix, then a Dual Pitch for a slight chorus and finally a legacy Dimension with SW4 on and about 25% mix. Seems like a lot of bother for what the SPX does in one preset. Anyhow kick it around – you may find something in there. Oh, yeah – Zakk Wylde used the SPX90 for those Symphonic tones on No Rest For The Wicked and No More Tears. PseudoSymphonic.hlx I read the Yamaha SPX90 Manual, and on Page 13 it states that, "The programmable parameters for this preset are identical to those for the Stereo Flange preset, omitting the F.B. Gain and MOD DELAY TIME". Note: Stereo Flange specs a MOD FREQ Range 0.1 ~ 20.0Hz and a MOD DEPTH of 0 ~100%

    Smooth high-cut sweep - possible?

    I've been trying to get a smooth low-pass/high-cut sweep effect, moving from 'very filtered' through to 'no filter', by adding a low pass block and assigning it to the expression pedal. Unfortunately, the parameter seems to move fairly linearly through the frequency range, so almost all the audible effect happens in the first 25% of the parameter's range as the frequency goes from 1KHz up to about 6KHz, and this makes it hard to control a smooth sweep with the foot pedal. My understanding is that there's no way to change the curve of the expression pedal or the parameter mapping - is that correct? If so, is there any practical workaround to get a smoother (logarithmic?) sweep between 1Khz and 22KHz/Off??

    Helix Lt with vintage fender twin reverb

    "presets are meant to go with studio monitors or FRFR's... it's not fair to judge those when plugged through an amp" Exactly you need to try FRFR's speakers instead A ref video there are more on YT
  23. If there is a trick I haven't found it yet. I've had to add them to the M20d playlist one at a time in the order I want to play them.

    Yes - the answer is yes. A quick google search under the term 'POD xt vs. Helix' yielded hours worth of reading material that has already been discussed here and elsewhere many times. Fill your boots!
  25. Hello everybody, Just got the HX Effects and love it. But i want to know if i can set up snapshots to change channel with midi just like i can with presets? I have an Marshall DSL40CR and figured out how to change channels when changing presets (Assign instant: BankPC and then Prog 1-2-3-4 depending on which channel i want to change to). I know you can assign a footswitch to do the same and then turn it on and off in stompmode, but my unit doesn't save the setting when turned it on or off in stompmode. I tried it with the Ext Amp in snapshot and stompmode and there it works, but i have mine connected with MIDI cable. Thanks in advance.

    HX Stomp Global and Routing

    Hi First time posting here, been lurking for a while reading up all I can about the HX Stomp. I'm a complete noob when it comes to digital effects. I'm gonna take the plunge and get one but wanted to check a few things before i do. The main way i'm hoping to use it is with a preamp block with various effects into the power amp section of my Fender HRD amp for onstage monitoring, with a mix going out to the PA. With this in mind: 1. Does this option mean all the volume for my amp will be controlled from the stomp and will this be loud enough (the amp is 40 watts but I'm not sure if this is determined by the preamp or power amp stage)? Will I get significant volume loss? 2. Has anyone tried this option using real OD/boost pedals in front of the stomp and does it sound good with preamp blocks? 3. Will I have to set up separate amp/cab (or IR blocks) for the split path going to the PA or can i just use a single IR block using the same preamp block that's going to the HRD? 4. I'm not the most tech savvy player and i'm a little put off by all the global options (i.e impedance input level etc). Has anybody found these options to be overwhelming? I'm hoping to just be able to plug in and play for the most part. Many thanks, Mike

    POD HD500 Foot switch FS3 broken

    If you get it opened up and find you don't have a quick FIX for the switch.... AND if you don't use the looper. Just swap the two switches. On my unit the Looper switch is my spare switch... it is never touched so it is essentially new. If one ever dies, I'll just swap it out - LOL These are just actuators that push the real switch under it.... there shouldn't be any soldering required to swap switches.
