    Cloud error

    I figured it out. Just reloaded the Firehawk Remote app and the errors went away.

    Helix or Powercab as my soundcard?

    I'm confused - Using one ASIO Driver at a time is a Windows thing, not DAW specific, unless I'm missing something? How do you use more that one ASIO Driver at a time in Reaper?

    I try to differentiate by saying "soundcard" when referring to the Windows Sound Panel setting (which gets streaming audio sources to your mix), and ASIO Driver when I mean the soundcard that your DAW uses, but it can be confusing. In solution 1 you're using the 2i2 for both streaming (Windows Sound Panel) and DAW (Sonar ASIO Driver). In Solution 2 you've physically removed the 2i2 from the setup, and you're using the Helix for both.

    The ASIO driver was/is installed. Perhaps I misunderstood. When you said set it as the soundcard, did you mean just within cakewalk? Because that’s how I had it originally.

    HX stomp USB noise

    Make sure both devices and the computer are connected through an EMI filtered power strip, to the same house circuit. One that doesn't share with appliances, fluorescent or rheostat controlled lights. If that doesn't do it, try different USB cables. According to Frank Richotte (L6 boss, over on TGP) the Helix is very sensitive to USB cable quality.
  8. hi used this mixer for the 2nd time at gig.ive watched the videos on youtube.at the begining we had the mains.during the night the mains werent working.we had to turn the monitors around to the crowd to have sound going out.im sure its something i must have done turned the mains off some how.anybody have any ideas?

    Experiments With Helix Master Volume Settings

    As a quick follow-up on this effort I wanted to mention something that I've seen much more consistently ever since I increased the Helix volume level. I previously mentioned there appeared to be more dynamics in play within the converted patches and now that I've done a few more it's very clear that's the case. Because I measure the signal levels coming out of the 1/4" output as well as through the XLR outputs it's very clear to me that the range of touch dynamics is MUCH more prominent than what I originally thought. It's most evident with cleaner patches, and particularly prominent when finger picking on my hollow body gretsch. But it's also quite a bit more prominent even on heavier rock style patches with a pick on a Les Paul, both in terms of how the pick is used, but also where on the strings the picking is done (toward the neck or toward the bridge). I'm not sure I can explain it but the measurements I've taken are very much different between my old patches at the lower Helix volume and the newer patches at the higher volume, as well as subjectively to my ears. I can only guess that it may have to do with the way the amp circuit is modeled to respond at higher channel volumes versus lower channel volumes, but who knows? It could also have to do with the bit depth as has been postulated by some. The amps I've seen this on are the Placater, the Fender Deluxe, the Marshall JTM-45, and the Vox AC-30. For myself this is a big benefit as I do a lot with dynamics in my playing, but YMMV....

    HX stomp USB noise

    It’s just a ground loop. It’s quite common when you multiple ground paths running between two pieces of equipment.

    Ear Pain after switching to Digital

    I agree with some of the other posts here. You shouldn’t need to buy anything else or change your set up at all just do a little more tweaking. I can get the helix to sound great at gig level and home level but those aren’t necessarily the same thing. I’ll vote for turning it down to a reasonable volume and then tweaking... I don’t know how much you mess with the hi cut and low cut on the cabs but I find that extremely useful as well if you’re using the stock cabs try adjusting the mic distance. These are simulations of mic’d cabs and even if you had the mic 12” (vs 1 - 3”) from the cone or edge no one actually listens to their amp with their ear that close to the speaker, it’s a totally different sound.. It’s too bad they didn’t have a mic setting of 6 to 8 feet (adjustable) to simulate where a guitar player is actually standing when listening to their amp. I think that blended with a close mic’d cab might help get that amp in the room sound through FRFR. I have a power cab but I really just use it between gigs when I don’t want to bother setting up my PA speakers in my house. I use the PA speakers for tweaking tones, the power cab is just for quick easy home practice. I like it, but honestly you should be able to do just as well with the L3Ms.

    Most versatile amp, and most versatile cab for cover band?

    Placater clean and dirty. It’s great that there are so many choices and I do use other amp models for different things but I think if these were the only two amp models in the helix, I would have no trouble doing patches for all the tunes I play in both bands. They are so versatile and sound so good. And If I didn’t have any IRs i would use the greenback 25.

    How do I move footswitches in "Edit" software--e.g. FS1 to FS3

    What Line 6 device and what Edit program are you using?

    HX stomp USB noise

    Hello, I just bought my first Line 6 product: the HX stomp. I am having an issue and I'd like to know if I am doing something wrong or if it's a defect of my unit so I could eventually return it. I connected the HX stomp through my Apogee Duet input in order to record to my DAW (and also to play through my speakers using the amp simulations and the IR's I bought). As soon as I connect the USB of my HX stomp to my Mac (because I want to edit presets with HX editor) I get an annoying ground noise. If I unplug the power cable of my Mac the noise it's reduced a bit but not entirely which makes it impossible to record high quality sounds. This only happens as soon as I connect the USB (included in the HX stomp) to my Mac. On the other hand, If I select on my DAW the HX stomp as input (other than the apogee duet) the noise is gone. I would like to use the Apogee Duet sound quality for recording, rather than the HX stomp internal audio card. The only solution seems to disconnect the USB cable to get rid of the gnd noise. Anyone is experiencing the same problem? Thanks a lot for your help! Simone
  16. HI, Can anyone help me to do this --to move the footswitches in "Edit" software-so, that means I keep all the pedals, but assign different foot swtiches to different pedals. Is there an easy way in the "Edit" software. THanks for your help!

    Comparing PowerCab+ to my Atomic CLR cab

    How do you find the Powercab when it’s tilted back Verne? I find it really harsh with little or no base if it’s not sat flat on the floor.

    Helix or Powercab as my soundcard?

    you basically never need to look at Ableton, and never need to touch the mouse. it can be in the background while u have youtube up or something, and it still works with Push 2

    HX Stomp FAQ

    Hello @Digital_Igloo, I figured I'm not the only one in the web with the same question but I couldn't find the answer. So here I go: When using the HX stomp as a USB interface, is it possible to monitor something ELSE than the "main out" in the headphones? (Explaination: I want to hear the click/metronome in my headphones, while sending the audio without metronome to the main outs) Thank you!

    Helix and other equipment

    You'll need to install the ASIO drivers from the Focusrite website. Remember that to change ASIO drivers in Sonar you first need to disable the inputs and outputs assigned to the old driver. The first solution allows you to record two tracks in Sonar. You could have one track be a specific instrument (guitar? vocals?) panned all the way left, and the other track be a mix of everything else you have running thru the mixer panned right (using the mixer's level controls to emphasize different instruments). OR two tracks with emphasis on different instruments in each (using the PAN and level controls on the mixer). A simple live jam recording setup. And you can always add overdubs later on separate Sonar tracks. The second solution allows you to record TWO specific instruments, say, Vocals and Guitar, on separate tracks, and a THIRD track with a mix of the remaining instruments from the mixer with differing stereo placements and levels of the instruments. A much more interesting mix with emphasis on the Lead instruments. The preset I attached (save it as a template) demonstrates the second solution and, of course, if you wanted to do an instrumental with second guitar or keyboards (or?) you could use a DI Box to take the instrument to the mic input (set the mic input to LINE or INSTRUMENT as necessary). You could then overdub vocals by setting a fourth track (or as many tracks as you want) to the same inputs you used for the earlier tracks. It's not perfect, but until you get your ZOOM it's pretty darn flexible with the equipment you have. Also, keep in mind that the effects that I used on the three Paths were purely for demonstration purposes. You could bypass any of them and use the tools available in Sonar (or aftermarket VSTs such as the FREE Blue Cat Audio package or very affordable WAVES VSTs) for mixdown. The more Instruments you can record on separate tracks the more options you have at mixdown. EDIT: The path I set up for guitar uses the first processor, since you likely want more effects for guitar. The second and third paths share the second processor, since there are less effects to use up DSP.

    Helix or Powercab as my soundcard?

    I'm just a Reaper guy. Does Ableton offer a lot of things Reaper doesn't over all?
  24. knoxdaz10

    Helix or Powercab as my soundcard?

    or being able to select ONLY usb1/2 AND Digital. but nothing else. that would fix it. (in ONE output block on the Helix)
  25. knoxdaz10

    Helix or Powercab as my soundcard?

    or i can spend more money for a 3rd soundcard and run all the outputs of the line 6 gear into it. which is what i used to do but i cant do that anymore because it broke and it wasnt any good really just a focusrite. i been eyeing the universal audio soundcard...
  26. knoxdaz10

    Helix or Powercab as my soundcard?

    this is an ableton problem really. as you can only choose 1 soundcard. where as using Reaper i can use as many soundcards that r plugged in i like. but making helix and powercab share the same soundcard would make everything so easy
  27. knoxdaz10

    Helix or Powercab as my soundcard?

    the helix is 1 soundcard. and the powercab is a 2nd soundcard. both have there own usb port on the pc. seamless would merge the 2. i dont think u understood that part
