  1. hi rsvette12, i am using helix native v1.6+ reaper + line6 fbv shortboard+ iD4 interface My FBV footswitches are programmed to change snapshots (see the MIDI CC# and values assignment in the pic). I use only 6 switches because some of the others are used for changing presets and arming/selecting tracks. I use this rig live. 1. So you need to program your footswitches by assigning each of them to CC#69 (i used to use CC#50 and it works too) and send out a single value. e.g. assign: footswitch1 CC#69 value:4 - this calls up snapshot 1 footswitch2 CC#69 value:20 - this calls up snapshot 2 footswitch3 CC#69 value:36 - this calls up snapshot 3 footswitch4 CC#69 value:52- this calls up snapshot 4 and so on... because snapshot1 CC values range from 0 to 15, snapshot 2 values is from 15 to 31... etc... interval of 16 (128values/8snapshots=16) From your screen shots it looks like Rig Control editor may allow you to custom assign CC3 and values. 2. in reaper, on your track1 FX window go to "param"->"learn"->"snapshot index", and the MIDI learn window will appear . 3. step on any of the footswitches so that reaper detects CC#69. 4. your footswitches now control snapshots depending on how you programmed them. i guess some of the steps above you probably know (like the MIDI learn part) but just thought i'd share it for completeness sake. hope this works for u.

  3. Are you wanting to keep your audio effects for vocals separate from your guitar effects? (Helix processes all guitar stuff and guitar looping, and VL3 for vocal stuff and vocal looping?) If so, all you need is to take your raw, unprocessed guitar signal from the Helix into the VL3 so it can detect your chords (with no effects or distortion which would confuse it). You can use a send block from the Helix, before amps and effects, out a send in the Helix into the guitar input on the VL3, and adjust levels properly. Use a separate output(s) from your Helix and VL3 into your mixer, so you have guitar and vocal channel(s). If you need to loop both guitar and vocals in synch, things get more interesting. Your loops have to be synched via MIDI clock or you'll have an audio mess. The VL3 has quantized clock synch for loops, the Helix does not. So VL3 would need to be the master, and Helix the slave. Use MIDI out from VL3 to MIDI in on Helix, and read the manuals to figure out how to synch the two via MIDI clock data. Not for the timid, but you should be able to do it. Another choice to avoid the complexity of operating two synched loopers (and tap dancing) would be to simply take guitar input from Helix and loop it in the VL3 along with your vocals. Or take vocal input from VL3 and loop it in the Helix along with your guitar. I think the looper in the VL3 is better so use that one. [UPDATE: I just reread your question, and sounds like you want to loop both guitar and vocal in the VL3. Good choice! If so, you will probably want to have two outputs from Helix into VL3; one with unprocessed guitar for the chord detection, and the other processed with effects for the loops. For unprocessed, use a Send as mentioned. For processed, you could use a send, and XLR out, or a 1/4" out (if you're using mono guitar signals to amp and VL3). Lots of ways to get the signal, but keep it simple. Wow, lots of fun with the setup you have!

  4. hi l_sap120394, The footswitches and knobs on your MIDI controller must be programmable to asign MID CC# and value for each footswitch. If HxFx board doesn't allow you to reprogram the CC# assignments for the knobs and switches then you wont be able to change snapshots with it. i use reaper+line6 FBV shortboard and can change snapshots. i just posted a reply to rsvette12 regarding how to program his Rig Control floorboard.

  5. If there's a big temperature difference between where the transmitters are being stored and where you're using them, that could account for the discrepancy. It seems to me that once I get down to around two hours on the indicator, that batteries drain more quickly after that. I typically just use Amazon's house brand of AAs. I'm usually good getting two shows or two or three rehearsals from a set of batteries. If I'm doing a long show, I usually just change the batteries regardless. I guess I always just treat the battery indicator as more of a very general indicator of how much I've used the batteries more than an accurate indication of how much time I have left. Once it gets down below 4 hours, I know I'll have to change them soon.

  6. I've gotten to the point where if its this kind of show I just grab the XLR off the guitar cab and plug it into my Helix. If a sound guy is complaining about having to move mics, just bring your own mic cable to run back to the area he seems to think mic cables live, so its not a problem (and he's also probably a lollipop sound guy if that's an inconvenience enough for him to complain about). Unless he's kinda dumb he's gonna have to adjust the gain and EQ for someone throwing a different head on the backline cab or plugging in different pedals or whatever anyways, so again, unless the sound guy is a dolt, this shouldn't be an issue. I can't wait till these old dinosaurs retire so I don't have to pretend to be nice to people who SHOULD have an understanding of all this stuff given its freaking 2018 and going direct shouldn't be a problem for any sound guy. We just did a show with an older guy running a huge analog system for sound, and apparently he usually just does sound for his classic rock cover band, so when I started explaining to him that we have kick triggers, backing track DI, and that our guitars and bass were all DI he seemed a little apprehensive, but once we got all hooked up and he started dialing everything in he's grinning ear to ear, because he barely has to do anything to any of the channels we sent him besides EQ for the room and set levels. Told me after out set that he's gonna talk to his guys about going direct.

  7. I looked it up before... I was in Utilities>Audio Midi Devices 1) It's not simple 2) Under my Ux2 there's no option to change the Output 3) The Pod Farm software offers such and option, but it doesn't work!! This should be simple. Use other audio driver/hardware as output! Recording software allows you to adjust these things. I find this a flaw in the Line 6 and am not accepting this. I simply want to plug in my guitar and play it through the Ux2>Mac>USB sound for practice!
