  2. Thanks @Gaz_Ham, I have of course tried that in different ways. I have verified that the issue is hardware related as it works on another (older) laptop I have that runs Windows 10. So, the question now becomes, how can I enable the UX1 to use on a Surface book?

    HX Stomp flaw, no sound sometimes

    I've had the same thing happen twice in 6 months.

    HX Stomp and Boss Katana 50 - sounds bad?

    Usually guitar processor run better in return of an amp. Katana 50 being without FX loop, try to use the acoustic mode with your stomp. May have surprises. Také care with the gain. Around 9oclock.

    HX Stomp FAQ

    Supposedly it gets better with 2.8 update, but yeah, 6 blocks is a big problem. Helix presets don't specify how many blocks are used, so what would the Stomp do if it tries to download one with more? There's no way that can work.

    MixIR is really awesome....

    Hi, I don't know if you will find this any easier to use and or understand, but it's free for both Windows and Mac. Just have to register with a name and email address - not a problem. https://lancasteraudio.com/pulse/ Hope this helps.

    oops.... I bought an Axe FX III.... but...

    I too had a Variax - the 1st gen and while I'm sure they've improved, because of the piezo pickups there are going to have to be some compromises in tone. My Variax sounded like it was already plugged into an amp no matter what you plugged it into. There was so so much missing in the high end. I'm sure they've had to lop off quite a lot of the highs that a piezo pickup actually captures to get rid of that pingy-ness that's inherent in all of them. Not sure if they can ever do anything about that. It also didn't really interact with an amp's input impedance, likely because of the active electronics, and that gave it sort of a dead non-reactive feel. I had that thing for a few years and it was very very convenient indeed but on that instrument, everything sounded really close... but no cigar. I had deluded myself into being content with what it was giving me until that one fateful day when I picked up a "regular" electric guitar (a Strat). That day made me realize just how much it - and I, was missing. The acoustic sounds were pretty stellar though and that was really 80% of my reason for buying it. I'll probably check out a Variax again in the future... but it will be with very skeptical ears.

    Helix Bug Reports

    1. I use HX Stomp for several month (about 20 gigs and a lot of practice) and twice I get strange flaw. I turn HX stomp on and no sound at all with any preset, while analog bypass sounds goes as usual. I reboot HX and it starts working ok. Not a big problem, but I'd like not to have it and I hope it'll not be more frequent. Does anyone else have the same issues? Firmware 2.71 2. I use Ipad via camera connection kit and usb cable to control changing presets and controlling effects using Touch OSC. I use PC commands to choose presets most of the time and it workds, but If I send commands too fast (random touches) or sometimes just use CC's to control, ipad stop working as controller and Line6 stops getting midi commands (ipad app show midi send). Unplugging and plugging it back helps. iOS version 8.1

    MixIR is really awesome....

    I tried using that program and I'm sure its me being stoopud, but it seems beyond my level of comprehension how to load the IR's and everything. I'm generally not unable to learn, but the program does way more than I need it to I'm sure and its not very intuitive......

    Footswitch assignments lost

    I have an HX Stomp and I managed to lose all the footswitch assignments on all patches. The three led rings are /stay white and I can't assign fx blocks to them. According to the manual touching the capacitive switches for 3 secs will bring up a dialog - which doesn't seem to happen in my device. I haven't reset the device yet, as I don't want to lose my patches / IR settings. Any ideas how to fix this? Is it a known bug? I suspect this happened when I played around with a Yamaha MD-BT01 Bluetooth midi adapter, but I never changed all presets (which would require saving them individually) and I currently don't know how that happened. Thanks for your help, M.

    Single vs Dual amp path channel volume matching

    well yes, but for my preset OCD'ness and to help facilitate changes I hear when I play them live with the band....I dont want to have 4+ different output volume values to remember where they 'should' be. What I was asking was this...I'll try to simplify my question (for those with the same question).....though I believe I have it figured out. single amp presets 7 single amp presets, all volume matched (enough for live use and no surprises during lead boosts) dual amp presets (for live use using a song per preset approach, utilizing snapshots for verse/chorus/lead etc) Intro/Chorus/Lead = Crunch preset........Verse = Clean preset In the dual amp preset, even though I copy the Crunch Lead Preset utilizing a volume matched Amp block to the Clean preset (I use the 'lead version so all my solo goodies are copied over when I create the Song Preset, no changes in the amp block settings are made, and when I disable the EQ/Drive/Delay/Volume blocks, i'm left with my Crunch preset)...when I split the signal and have an A/B patch that is selected via snapshot.....the overal preset volume is lower than presets that do not have the split signal (dual amps). It makes sense above that when its split, the Helix is assuming you are using both paths and not muting one of them....so it drops the volume on the paths to compensate for the extra signal path's volume. So in order to not have multiple versions of the same amp block sound or multiple output block settings to remember...I was wondering where and what the best place was to make a change so that my 'settings in the blocks' can remain the same, but I can compensate for this volume difference. When I go from a single amp preset to a dual amp preset that has always been where my volume issues have come from...and I understand it now, how to adjust and compensate for what the Helix is doing signal wise. ****answer**** I can adjust the merge block to compensate the volume of the preset and leave my block settings the same that way there should be no difference in volume single vs. dual....however if there is, I can adjust that one parameter and it will be easier to be consistent with my edits.

    Pod x3 live no sound output

    One thing to check - the Amp/Line switch on the top panel of the device. I discovered once by accident that if this switch is in the middle position it acts as a mute switch on the outputs.

    Slight bug on moving IR one slot over?

    There you go... The Helix doesn't appear to be the problem... HX Edit or Communications (USB port and cable) is.

    Slight bug on moving IR one slot over?

    Tested on Helix unit itself and ISSUE DOES NOT PERSIST. HX Edit is the only thing causing my original issue to happen.

    Pod x3 live no sound output

    I have been using a Pod X3 Live for about 4 years. It was bought 2nd hand so its well out of date now, and parts cannot be easily obtained in the UK. Last year the power supply went down totally and my techie boffin pal rigged up a workaround, because the parts to reinstate it were not available. He did warn me that it may not be economic to repair again and would probably blow again. Anyway it suddenly stopped dead and went blank a week ago, admittedly after I had been perhaps over-enthusiastically wa-wa-ing, (which might be a clue?). I smelled burning so something shorted out. My boffin pal had a look and tells me its all powering up OK, and there is no obvious burned out part visible, but there is no audio output at all! Its probably bound for the scrap heap to be replaced by a second hand HD500X off ebay, but I'm wondering if anyone knows if there might be a simple fix for this? My immediate thought is either that the sound output power supply (on the board?) has blown, or its something to do with the expression pedal failing. A second question is whether I will be able to load in my setups via Gearbox into the HD500X? I think so, but nobody I have asked knows for sure. It would be so great not to have to reinvent the wheel!
  18. Dear Community, as you can see, my USB connector is kind of broken, but it still works! Now my question is: Is it possible to change this part or will I not be able to open the FBV Express MKII? Otherwise I would have to buy a new controller. Greetings and thank you very much, oobboo

    Crackles and pops with HX Stomp

    Thanks but I've tried that, but as I've said the problem isn't limited to just Cubase, it happens when just using it as my Pc's soundcard, it seems related to cpu usage, it's more likely to happen if I'm for example listening to music and the open some applications or switch apps.

    Slight bug on moving IR one slot over?

    I just listened to your audio sample... that is crazy! I could imagine the move could change the tone if was swapping positions with another effect... but not into an empty slot like you diagram shows. If you are moving it in HX Edit you need to eliminate that as a potential problem. I see by your image that the Helix Floor is version 2.7.1. Is HX Edit the same version? You find that under Help > About. Turn edit off, unplug the USB cable, and try moving it on the unit itself to see if this problem still continues. If the problem continues, try a few troubleshooting tests... Rather than move the IR to the right, what happens if you completely remove the IR from it's current position, then add it in the position you want? This would help to figure out of it's a "position problem" or a "move problem". Load a different IR into the current position... then move it to see if the problem continues. This would help figure out if it's a "position/move problem", or a "specific IR problem".

    Not Helix... but still nice to see

    Convenience and consistency is certainly a huge benefit, but the point is... as you say... he doesn't have to. That's why I find this move so intriguing.... MK spends a lot of time on his tones, he would never compromise. He would only do this if it equaled the tones/feel he was used to... plus gave him the other benefits. I'd like to see more details about this move... and I would love to hear it from Mark himself. I'd also like to see if he continues down this path on his next tour. I thought twice or more about posting this because I honestly don't care who plays what. But I'm a fan of modeling/profiling... so when a player with this much influence, touch/feel/tone actually makes the change, I think it's a good day for the future of the technology.

    Single vs Dual amp path channel volume matching

    Maybe I don't understand what you are doing but, can't you just use the output block volume to adjust between different patches?
  23. We're a touring band and we bought 2 g70 systems because of the built in tuner. Both are updated to latest firmware. 1 system has a terrably noice in the background all the time. And the input level is so hot, it feedbacks all the time. And the drop outs.. I've Sent it back. The other system drops out all the time no matter what channel. And it makes our other g30 and g50 system drop out... Terrable system. Going back to g30 or g 50 again. Don't buy IMO.

    I believe the MOD DUO does exactly that.

    HX Stomp and Boss Katana 50 - sounds bad?

    Your biggest problem with the Katana 50 is that there's no FX Loop. To use the amps in the stomp with that amp you'll need to use the clean amp, and that's never going to sound right. As Kilrahi said, you're best off just using the Helix effects without the amps and cabs. Unless you really love that amp, your best bet is to try and sell it, or trade it for an FRFR type speaker.

    Perhaps it is just easier to get consistent sound night after night?
