  2. So is this something you do for each different amp? Or do you find IR's that work with many different amps. Or a combination of both perhaps. And do you personally rename your IR's?
  3. I don't know the official answer, most likely the 2 inputs Guitar in and Aux/Return (if both used) signals will be mixed together but the chain with its settings, effects and amp will be just one and shared. To get 2 independent separately processed (mono) lines you need the big HX brothers, or even the old HD500/X. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

  5. Ok good to know. But that assumes they are route to the stereo output. It doesn’t answer whether those inputs can be mixed or blended together with separate gain and effects and routed to a mono output like Helix can do on a single dsp.
  6. I would like 10 snapshots, too. The announced 2.9 update will allow you to select snapshots in stomp mode (via Command Center), so you could theoretically have 10 snapshots - but you'd lose stomp mode in that case, which I personally don't want at all.
  7. How did you monitor the Helix at the gig?
  8. Hi, I normally don't use the up and down switches, and they are there. If those could be utilized as additional Snap Shot switches would be great, of course hoping for max. 10 snapshots then :-D. Just gives more options within one Preset. Multiples with selection comes close to changing to new presets. Personally trying to keep it simple to one Preset, because the balancing of volumes becomes more tedious with increased no. of presets... Cheers, Thomas
  9. As you can check by yourself by reading the already dowloadable POD GO CHEAT SHEET the stereo RETURN can be used as AUX stereo input. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  10. In my opinion it is more likely that some frets on the neck of the guitar are no longer perfectly aligned with the others, or the strings are too close to the fretboard, or the truss rod need to be adjusted a little, or the strings are too old. Moreover, some types of amps and settings tend to sonically emphasize the small imperfections of the connected instrument. Problems in bending in the area around the 12th key onwards are often indicative of the need to make a new setup to the instrument (if the strings are still new). I happened to have the same problem, and with new strings and/or new setup I solved everything. The plain unwound strings (like the first 3 e,b,g) if defective or too old/worn out easily give the described symptoms. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  11. Well I was about to post the same thing... I would like to know about alternatives in case sonicport keeps this way. The problem with Irig and other interfaces I’ve seen is that they not allow for a stereo line in input... and that is just what I need since I use it to record audio from my Yamaha keyboard. Any one has any experience with other interfaces that allows stereo line in input? So far the closest I have seen browsing in the web is a usb class compliant Yamaha mixer connected through the camera connection kit 3. But this is much more than I really need.

    POD Go FAQ

    that would be a great feature! I guess they can perhaps implement it with a software update if it doesn't do it already.
  13. Thank you for your replies. Actually the problem comes from the Helix. I have a Harley Benton FXL8 Pro that change the channel of my Mesa perfectly fine by triggering a signal in a standard jack. What is weird is that changing the channel works fine with the HX effects when the input jack is not plugged. As soon as I plug the input, two channels are up together, and the amp buzz. Adding a Voodoo Lab to switch channel in midi is not a good solution for me. I chose HX effects to have a small and efficient solution and because it had an external switch.
  14. Thanks - our thought there was that if we needed more inputs we could run a small mixing desk into one of those inputs - we'd probably only need to do that if we wanted to mic up the drums. Just a small 4 channel mixer would then cover the drums. It was the sheer convenience of these things that impressed us - plus the fact that I could use one them at home to run my helix through when dialling in patches - they're actually quite compact.
  15. Each Evox 8 stack rates at 128 db SPL which should be more than enough with two stacks if I'm reading their specs correctly. The concern would be with the mixer which only really has 4 standard inputs and two stereo lines. Channels 5/6 could be used for one 1/4" mono input, but channels 7/8 is a low level (-10db) stereo line using RCA unbalanced inputs which I think you'd find to be problematic for instrument or vocal inputs. That only gives you 5 inputs and one is a limited input for 1/4" only. You might want to look into that.
  16. Hi there, Can anybody check whether this can work on the HX without reaching the DSP limits? TS808+JCM800+IR+Stereo Chorus+Stereo multitap 4 Delay+Stereo reverb. This DSP limitation is the only doubt in me because I use stereo rigs.

    Helix 2.9

    Yeah, that'd be very useful, too. Along with an option for the entire preset to either be just a reference/alias or a "hard copy".
  18. Thanks for your responses. The reason we were looking at the RCF evox 8 (with the Jmix console/MIXER) is just how convenient they are to store and put up. We did a gig this weekend with an old PA system and it took ages to put up and it didn't sound great. The JMIX has, effectively, 6 inputs which would cover 2 vocals, 2 guitars, 1 bass and a kick drum - at the moment that's all we'd need and it has the benefit of all the digital/virtual desk controls. Was thinking of getting one of therm and then an additional evox 8 without the mix console to give us a pair. They sounded great in the shop - do you not think they'd be loud enough? a pair of those plus a couple of floor monitors was the plan.
  19. Three weeks ago I bought a Spider V 120 MKII. I'm just not happy with the distortion but, the cleans do sound Great. I'm returning it and I just ordered the 240 MKII. I think the True Stereo of the 240 MKII will sound much better. Thoughts?
  20. If you don't want to spend the money on an FBV3, the Express should give you a volume pedal, plus the ability to change presets with the footswitches which would make it easier for you to switch between electric and acoustic instruments easily.
  21. Your suggestions have helped me with getting the Park brighter. Thank You. However when I used the 2204 and I play some notes on say the 12th fret B string or 15th fret B string and bend those notes up I still hear those strange whirring noises in the background, and I have shut the Hum value all the way off. Perhaps this is a bug in this amp model. Kind of a shame as the amp sounds better than the JCM-800.
  22. Can the stereo return be used as inputs and mixed together for a mono out... like Helix does?
  23. That's because you have to manually assign stomps to each of the switches whenever you create your own patch. While in stomp mode, touch (don't press) the footswitch for a short period. This will bring up a dialog box to where you can assign a block to that specific footswitch. Also, grab a copy of the updated manual. There is a ton of helpful information inside regarding basic and advanced operations.
  24. I have the control with Helix rack. When I use a factory preset I can turn FX on and off. When i use my custom presets and switch to stombox mode i can't access the fx to toggle them, the windows are blank. When I switch to edit mode they are there blinking and I can edit them, they don't show up in stomp box mode.
  25. Peter thanks, this is what I tried. I have two mono FX sends on my mixing board. I want to return those with different FX to the stereo return on my board. What this shows is two mono returns from the board, and one stereo send to the return on the board. Is theoritically right?
