  1. I'm not using super high-output pickups or anything (pair of Fralin unbuckers) but the difference is amazing on all amp models with input pad on. For single coils, I use Kinky Boost and it sounds great! Now I'm wondering if reducing the input signal further (i.e. from the input pad -6dB) is warranted. Anyone try this?

  3. I agree that amps seem to break up very early, especially given that I tend toward generally low output pickups. Every time I try the input pad though I feel like the life has been sucked out of my guitars. Perhaps I just haven't spent enough time dialing my patches back in after engaging it. I think I'll play with it again...

  4. Hi Thanks so much for reply and maybe ha hint of where to fund a solution @datacommando. I appreciate your feedback and seen your earlier around those subjects and if I didn’t know you were a Mac user, I could have bet you were a PC user :-). Made a quick check and the first link is what I have done, I had disabled suspending of USB. I have also in principle suspended all what power management can turn off under Power Options. I have made some of the steps under the second link too, but there are some parts I will dig into. There was also some interesting links on this page to more info. On this thread, I started to try digging into some of those problems. My bad lock was I got a 6 meter USB 2.0 cable. That was how I found that power setting on the USB-port had changed, pure luck… Thanks for your feedback //Per

  5. Two guys saying "um...err...I think....maybe..." because neither, apparently, has any idea what impedance is actually about. If something in that babble solved some problem they had in their heads, I'm happy for them, but they sure didn't provide much information, and, to the extent that impedance has anything to do with "rubbery slippage" (which sounds more related to birth control than guitar tone or feel) totally left out the most important development in 3.0(1), the Global "Auto-In Z" Preference setting, which fixes the problem of where impedance (pickup loading) happens in the signal chain. I fear that this video is only going to further confuse people on this subject. The important things to know: 1) If you set the IN-Z setting in the Input Block to AUTO, AND in Global Settings>Preferences you set Auto In-Z to ENABLED, then the FIRST ACTIVE block in the signal chain determines how the pickups are loaded, whether there's the high end roll-off that the low-impedance blocks expect for "authentic" tone from the effect. 2) If you're using a wireless transmitter, it's irrelevant, as your pickups are always loaded at 1M. Even though some wireless units have a "cable length" switch that supposedly mimics this effect, it's not the same - static with all pickup types, and ALWAYS ON. To show how unimportant this whole impedance thing is to anyone who's not a KNOWLEDGABLE tone purist, if you watch many Rig Rundowns, you'll see MANY top pros raving about their vintage Tube Screamers that are either buried two or three effects deep on their boards, or they're using wireless, and/or have buffers/buffered effects in their signal chains before the TS. Rubbery slippage....rubbery slippage.....Sorry, just thinking the words makes me giggle like a 13 year old......

  6. Getting the MIDI output loop commands back will be great, but I have no words to describe what a better MIDI implementation will mean for us. Don't quote me, but... Maybe something like... "The next firmware update promises to be a true milestone for us MIDI fans?".

  7. That model is a Line 6 original that they ported over from POD Farm for the HD model packs... I don't know if they'll bring over to the Helix or not. There are a lot of POD Farm models that aren't in the Helix.

  8. That guy chimes in once in a blue moon, whenever he feels the need to demonstrate that he's the smartest guy in the room. In his black and white universe everything is reduced to a series of "right" and "wrong" absolutes, which he obsessively quantifies (to whatever extent possible depending on the issue) in a futile attempt to "disprove" the subjective opinions of others. By now I'm sure you can guess who's always "right". Ignore him.

  9. This Preset I made for a Vocal and Acoustic at the same time..... https://uk.line6.com/customtone/tone/4433419/ As there's no MIC Input on the LT, decided to try a MIC to LINE Adapter. I got this one - https://www.gear4music.com/PA-DJ-and-Lighting/Audix-T50K-Impedance-Matching-Transformer/ST8?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=order-confirmation&utm_content=ord-line&utm_source=txn-email It works great .... I can plug my Dynamic Mic in via the RETURN 1 Input on the LT, made a patch with Dualpaths for Mic on Return 1 and Guitar on Return 2. With the Studio Preamp and some Compressors, and a bit of Gain boosting, I get a great clean Mic signal.

  10. The search feature here can be finicky, but the truth is 99% of people don't want to FIND an answer, they want to be GIVEN an answer. They wanna post a questions from the crapper in the morning and come back after their day and have everything laid out for them by someone with more time and inclination to service. I had to mute the FB Helix group and only check it when I feel like it for this reason. 200+ "WhY nO FiRMwAre WoRk foR mE?" posts a day is ridiculous. It would seem out of the 30k+ people in that group, 11 know how to do a search.

  11. I search before I ask, but I don't search this forum.... the search function simply isn't good enough to find what I am looking for. I do a Google search... and quite often it ends up pointing me to a helpful thread on these forums. If I want to search these forums from Google, I add "site:line6.com/support/" to the end of my search phrase Example: compatible exp pedal site:line6.com/support/ That example searches for the phrase "compatible exp pedal" ONLY on the Line 6 forums.

  12. Having this same issue with Mac. My issues have not been resolved however. Tried everything listed but no resolution. "Stuck at Boot failure. Entered Update Mode!". Red : -3 in upper left corner of window. I'm stuck because Updater and Helix Edit 2.8 will not recognize the Helix Floor. Yeehah. Not sure where to go from here.

  13. What I did for this was use CC52 and CC53 which emulate FS4 and FS5 (page 49 in manual). I then set FS4 and FS5 in the HX Stomp settings to bank up and down. This lets me keep the Stomp in snapshot mode and use external midi to bank the presets up and down.
