  1. I will try to post some screenshots this evening. Yes, this is to use the standalone to capture wet and dry to your DAW. Then render the dry to the format of your choice to send off. You can then apply the add PF or other plug-ins to the dry.

  2. I suspect that this is precisely why they resisted including them for so long... they knew that people would plugging into all sorts of meter-equipped external gear. It's inevitable that something "wouldn't jive" with a meter on some other device, and then they'd be fielding complaints about that, too. Come to think of it, that probably explains the lack of a scale... having no numbers to fixate on and obsess over reduces one's ability to whine about accuracy. With no absolutes, there's no comparison to be made. In retrospect, the lack of a scale seems like a pretty shrewd decision. Lol...;)

  3. There’s no meter but as you approach the DSP limits some FX blocks are greyed out in the selection list and are no longer selectable. This indicates that selecting those blocks would exceed the DSP limit. When you see a desired block greyed out that will trigger your swapping exercise.

  4. Have you had a chance to try the setup I mention in my previous post yet? It works out nice because after you record you can add the plug-in to the dry track and should have no latency and then you can render the dry track with the plug-in off as fflbrgst mentions.

  5. Lol... agreed. I too have managed just fine without meters for years, and really couldn't care less...I just found it amusing that after years of indignant "Where are the meters?!?!?!" threads they finally caved, only to provide unit-less meters... all but guaranteeing a fresh round of b1tching. The world's first "spite meter", lol

  6. I've been waiting for a Metergate thread with precisely this complaint! I'm amazed it took this long...lmao ;)

  7. Castro66, just for clarification, are you launching PF standalone, plug-in, or both?

  8. I really hate when publications categorize the Helix as a multi-effects pedal. The truth is Helix is a Modeler which means it's more than effects. It provides functional models of not only effects, but amps, cabinets, mics for those cabinets along with a wide range of different effect units as well as the means to connect it to the real world in a variety of ways whether that be for performing live or working in a studio. So you'd consider it a one stop shop for most every need you might have. To get a feel for everything that's in something like the Helix Floor or Helix LT look through the following link for the amps and effects it has to offer. https://helixhelp.com/ What that would mean in your world is you have everything you would need for connecting to your CUBASE to record. You wouldn't need a separate audio interface for your computer because the Helix provides that as well as all the hookups for studio monitors, headphones, vocal mic, as well as other instruments. For example I have two Helix units. One is used for playing live with my band, the other serves as a backup to the first one but is connected in my studio to my main computer and DAW. Aside from plugging my guitar into it, it also has my vocal mic, keyboard, bass guitar, and sometimes an electric drum kit all plugged into it simultaneously. When I record I choose the correct preset for the instrument I plan to record, arm the track, press record and play. I repeat the process for capturing the recording of all other instruments all literally done through a single USB connection to the computer and two connections to my studio monitors without leaving my chair to change things. Now that's the marketing description, but what Spikey is referring to is the behind the scenes work that you have to do to prepare the Helix to do what you want. In the real world you have to wire up your effects and amps, in the Helix world you define the type of amp and how you want it setup, the cabinets, mics for the cabinets, and the effects and their placement before or after the amp just like you would in physical studio and save it as a Preset to be recalled any time you need it. That's the complexity Spikey is referring to because the options and knowledge required to do that can be daunting to some people. If, however, you want to grow your technical skills for recording or live playing, the Helix can be a great environment for learning the technical ins and outs of different setups with various amps and effects. But how effective you are with the Helix is based on your understanding of the pros and cons of different amp, what a parametric EQ does, or how to dial in a compressor, the style and type of different reverbs and delays, or how to choose what kind of microphones and where to place them on a cabinet, and so forth. If you enjoy learning how to do those things you'll enjoy and greatly benefit from the Helix. If you just want to plug in and start playing, maybe not so much.

  9. Like phil_m says, HX FX or HX Stomp. The HX FX is designed to meet your need #1, and does so more effectively then POD Go. The HX stomp will address both needs. As for audio dropouts when switching patches, that is the case for the vast majority of modellers. It sounds like you may be new to modelling (based on your need #1) so be looking out for this if /when you decide to go with a different modeller.

  10. It sounds to me like you’d be better off with the HX Effects or Stomp. They’re a little more but each give you complete flexibility with the signal chain. They also have a slightly more powerful SHARC chip, so the DSP limit isn’t quite as big an issue.

  11. Try using different USB cables and/or ports and try running the update again. It should eventually go through. This link has some additional information.

  12. I'm using the Classic Rock presets right now in the studio, working on a new album. This pack has become my "go to" set of presets when I'm looking for the perfect tone. I can always find what I need there without a lot of tweaking or work needed. The included matching IRs are the frosting for all of the lovely cakes. Thanks for making presets .... they never disappoint.

  13. Ok, so if you want a dry signal file,too, just turn off the PodFarm plug-in and render the track to another WAV file.

  15. Hi Have made a new version, 2.92, of my Cheat Sheet, Line6 Helix Model Summary, for the ones who still like it on a printed sheet or as a file on your PC/MAC. All models up to firmware 2.92 are in there and as usual they are in the order of appearance on the unite. Have cleaned the sheet up a bit (preparing for 3.0 and all new amps, cabs and effects :-)) and have added some more info – Input impedance for effects and reset/restore key combos incl what the different key combos do. Else, same format as before. Download it from my Dropbox here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/90d6cv09rhzqrks/Line6 Helix-Model Summary%2C P2%2C92-05.pdf?dl=0 Have fun //Per

  16. Well, if you are using the PodFarm plug-in, you ARE recording the dry signal. The plug-in can be turned on or off, then I assume you are rendering/converting the track to WAV or MP3?

  19. Finally!! I was able to change Snapshots in the Helix Native using Program Changes from the Mooer GE300. The solution was to use the ReaLearn plugin in Reaper. Here's the configuration I used. I hope this helps someone else. I spend several days researching until finding this.

  20. You can view the contents of the Helix .hlx files for patches using this online site and then copy the info down and try to emulate something similar in your podgo https://dbagchee.github.io/helix-preset-viewer/

  21. I fully understand the lack of I/O meters in Native because it has always had that.... Gain reduction meters is what I am referring to.... the ones on the compressors. They are a wonderful tool for compression, and most (if not all) studio hardware and plug in compressors have gain reductions meters.... having them absent from Native after this update is odd.

  22. This problem is definitely the responsibility of L6. No other programs have this bug going on that is not fixable. I develop software and know better. This program should be fixed and it is the responsibility of Line6 to do it. Shame on you guys for not fixing the full-screen issue by now. It is an easy fix too.

  23. You check with Customer Support, but if it's not in our online store, then I would think we would not sell directly to end users for that item. It's more for service techs. https://www.fullcompass.com/prod/236797-electro-harmonix-t-el34eh-matchpair-pair-of-matched-el34-preamp-vacuum-tubes For the EL34 for the DT50 power tubes. https://www.fullcompass.com/searchresults.php?search_simple=true&txtAll=Electro-Harmonix+12ax7 For the 12AX7EH pre-amp tubes.

  24. I put this into Idea-scale a while back. Maybe it needs more votes. Or maybe it isn't doable. Not sure. I know Line 6 weights the requests, as they should, to better manager their resources. However, I thought I'd bring this back up in case anyone else would like to vote it up. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Boss-Slow-Gear-SG-1/818934-23508#idea-tab-comments Dennis
