  1. Hi Rachmaninoff, Yes, this is possible with Helix LT. When you go into Global Settings > Ins/Outs and set 'Volume Knob Control' to 'Digital', only the Headphone volume will be effected by the Volume Knob while the 1/4" and XLR outs are set to unity. You would then adjust your preset levels by adjusting the 'Ch Volume' parameter of the amp block (as well as the output block).

  2. You're most welcome! The USB-out volume will always be unity regardless of settings in Global Settings.

  3. Subjective descriptions of guitar tones are largely worthless anyway, no matter how fancy the adjectives, or how florid the prose... in much the same way as listening to the wine snob at the vineyard wax poetic about "citrus notes, earthy undertones, and a velvety nose" won't tell me if l'm gonna like it or not. There's only one way to find out, and this scenario is no different. Absent a sound clip and/or more info about what's in your signal chain...specifically what you've got going on for cabs/IR's, any additional EQ, and what you're listening through... it will be virtually impossible to diagnose what the issue is from afar. Plus, the ugly truth that nobody ever wants to hear is that 99.97% of the time the problem ain't the gear...no matter how comforting it might be to lay the blame at it's feet. My gut reaction (if you're new to modeling) is to say that you just don't know what you're doing yet. That's not a dig... nobody does at first. Modelers are not amps, and attempting to dial in sounds as you would if it were your favorite tube amp and cabinet will yield disappointing (if not outright nauseating) results. Check out Jason Sadites' YouTube channel for some excellent Helix- specific tutorials for all the how's and why's of creating tones.

  4. Instead of using hundreds of words to describe something cant be described, we only need to know few things to (try) to help; How are you listening the Helix. Speakers, monitors, headphones etc. Give us details about that. Describe EXACTLY your signal, from the start to the end. Routing and everything. Describe your Helix Global Settings for the signal. In and Outs, and FX Loops if being used Give people a reference, like a specific preset name you are using, something to put everyone on the same page. Dont do comparisons with other things, like plugins or other devices, this never helps and sometimes may sounds a flame starter, especially on a first ever post. If possible, keeps other stuff out of the equation (PCs, audio interfaces, pedals etc) This could be a good start. :)

  5. Supro - GLOBAL SETTINGS>INS/OUTS Input Pad = OFF 1/4" Outputs = INST Volume Knob Controls = XLR (results in UNITY GAIN at 1/4" L/Mono Out>Supro Input) PREFERENCES Auto Impedance = First Enabled ALL PRESETS Input Block In-Z = AUTO If you're still not getting a hot enough signal to the Supro, increase the Preset Output Block Level. MkV - GLOBAL SETTINGS>INS/OUTS Input Pad = OFF 1/4" Outputs = LINE Send/Return = whichever works best Volume Knob Controls = XLR (results in UNITY GAIN at 1/4" L/Mono Out>MkV FX Return) PREFERENCES Auto Impedance = First Enabled ALL PRESETS Input Block In-Z = AUTO If you're still not getting a hot enough signal to the MkV Input, increase the FX Loop Block SEND Level. If you're still having problems, look at the Gain Staging of your Presets. Pay attention to the Output Meter - when the Output Block is selected it's monitoring the 1/4" Out. When the FX Loop Block is selected it's monitoring the SEND.

  6. I'm deciding between the Helix and the Helix LT, and now I have this question. These are my current needs: the XLR and 1/4" to be always at full volume – ie. not being adjusted by the volume knob; the headphones to be adjusted by the volume knob. Question: Is it possible to be done on the Helix LT? Page 65 of the manual says: ... but there is no mention if the headphone volume will still be controlled by the volume knob.

  7. Thanks. I did take cars of the activation process and the Purchase History/Order Details show that I've activated Native and authorized one of the five devices I'm allowed. I think the terminology is what threw me. I was thinking that I'd need to do a separate registration process, as I'd done with my Stomp. The Registered Gear section of the registration page only shows that unit. I was wondering whether Native was in the "Gear" category or not. Guess not, seeing as it's not on the pull down menu. Thanks, again. Third Stone From the Sun...quite a place. And one of my greatest influences on the electric.

  8. So it seems that the Helix LT fits my needs. Thank you very much, @NBell.

  9. It is available in POD Go Edit as well. You just right click on the block, and it’s one of the options available in the menu that pops up.

  10. Yep… And setting the Snapshot Bypass parameter to Off like I explained above will allow you to do just that. It’s like the wah block simply isn’t part of the snapshots then. So if you have it on and switch to a different snapshot, the wah will remain on. It’s almost like have an independent pedal outside of the preset.

  13. Thank you, @NBell. Another question: once I set 'Volume Knob Control' to 'Digital', if I have the Helix LT plugged via USB to my computer, will the USB volume be affected by the volume knob? Or will the USB always have full volume?

  15. I haven't had to touch a single footswitch on my Helix ever since I started using my Morningstar MC 8. Since it has two pages of footswitch assignments that gives me a total of 16 footswitches at my disposal for every preset. Pricey? Yeah, I suppose at $309, but worth every penny.

  16. Hi Joeydego, I recommend using the stock antennas for optimal performance as they were designed to be used specifically with the G50 digital wireless system. These can be found on our web-store here: https://shop.line6.com/accessories/wireless-accessories/relay-g50-antenna-pair.html Thanks!

  17. Tip: use the Helix backups instead of versioning each preset multiple times. I use one preset-per-song. I need to reorder them as needed when my band decides on the set order. I use another playlist folder to store "backups" of all my presets, just in case I accidentally do something stupid right before going onstage. I make a Helix backup after very single (often trivial) change. That's how I version my presets as well. If I realized that a month ago my preset sounded better than what I have right now, I: 1. retrieve that helix backup 2. restore my presets into another preset folder 3. copy and paste it from there. It's a lot easier than keeping a ton of old presets IMO. But to each his own.

  18. Hi, Yes, it is both possible and absolutely necessary to register your copy of Helix Native. If you don't activate the registration, it will work as the demo version until the end of the trial period. To activate your Helix Native plug-in, sign in to your Line 6 account. Once there, click the activation link on the lefthand side panel headed Hardware & Software , enter your activation code, and click submit. Your activation code is located in the Software Activation Instructions email sent from your Sales Engineer, or on the Invoice for your purchase. Then you will need to authorise your computer to use the newly installed plug-in. Simply open your DAW, launch Helix Native, and sign in with your Line 6 username and password. Open your DAW of choice and insert the Helix Native plug-in to a track. Sign in with your Line 6 username and password. Click Authorize This Computer. Hope this helps/makes sense.

  19. No. Save the preset with the vocal chain as a "template" to use when creating your guitar sounds, best you can do.

  20. I think you'll need a MIDI FS to do this. Not cheap. Morningstar MC3 is <>$189. Upside is it'll do most anything else you need.

  22. well.... I agree with what @rd2rk says above.... but for troubleshooting you should always take something like that out of the chain long enough to know it isn't causing the problem. If the problem persists, add it back in! Is there any chance the Global EQ is engaged on the Stomp... possibly with some dramatic EQ or Filter settings? Are you running ANY effects in the Stomp prior to the amp block?

  23. Thank you all for the feedback so far and some of the work around suggestions. I will go and check Ideascale for the feature request. Essentially we are just looking for a database view in HX Edit. No need to reorder and store in the Helix itself or even in the patch files.

  24. Just getting rid of the fixed blocks would be great. I don't need a wah pedal, or eq, or cab and Amp or send return to be fixed. If we could make our own choices as to how we use this that would be awesome. As it is, I am unable to create the sounds I need for about 33% of my music because of fixed blocks. The boss GT1 is more flexible for $200. I am sorry I sold it and bought the Pod. The best device for the price and flexibility is the Pod HD500X. I understand this isn't a Helix. I have a Helix. But letting the user choose how they play music is a big plus. I purchased it for portability and the line 6 normal stance on flexibility and customer service. Hopefully they aren't going the way of other companies who get to big for being customer oriented.

  26. Ummm....the primary purpose of an AMPLIFIER is to make the signal LOUDER. If the default setting of the MASTER is 10, that means that ITRW, the amplifier DOES NOT HAVE a Master Volume (NMV). Reducing the Master on those amps will affect the way that the Power Amp section responds, which is usually undesirable. The purpose of the Input Gain knob on your Audio Interface is to adjust for differences in Input Levels. The OUTPUT LEVEL Knob on the LT, at MAX, sends a UNITY (0db)signal. That's what you want going to the AI. EDIT: if the signal is just too hot to be adjusted at the AI Input, you've probably got a problem in the Gain Staging of your preset. If the Preset itself is not distorting unpleasantly (digital distortion), you can try reducing the Level at the Output Block. IOW - your equipment is functioning as designed, you just need to learn how to use it. There are many instructional videos on YouTube, and most every AI mftr and DAW producer have IVs on their sites. Sweetwater also has many IVs.

  27. The whole point of the Analogman King of tone is that it is 2 pedals in one. Why include this Helix version if the only way to replicate this is by NOT using the model and instead using 2 Different models in 2 FX blocks? Doesn’t make sense.

  28. I have not checked this particular verb as I hardly ever use it for my own stuff...However, digital reverbs generally can be prone to oscillate harmonics that couple in the the form of overtones...distortion is the place to start...More saturation adds more harmonic content...if it couples, the reverb can start resonating those...As voxman55 alluded to, the more radical things are set, the more likely this can happen with a reverb....Without hearing what your are talking about and no information on your particular patch, it's hard to guess, but your description sounds like oscillations from a verb being a bit too long...

  29. What is your signal chain and where do you have reverb in your chain? It should either be at the end of your chain after your amp, cab and any delay, or alternatively for a spring reverb, this can also sound good between the amp and cab. Check that your room reverb doesn't have decay set too high; the stock setting might be too high here and may need turning down.
