  1. IME... programming from HX Edit requires saving on the unit itself, and requires a lot of saving to be safe. I'm not sure if "buggy" is the term I would give it... since it does appear to work as intended - it seems like more of a communication breakdown, "on certain setups". YMMV....

  2. I tried running like this but it just wasn't as practical for most of what we were doing as having complete control. For the primary preset I use through 80% of the show, I'll use 6 or 7 different sounds, then need access to punching in delay at certain points and solo boost which converts to mono. I probably could get away with a full 10 snapshots, but it was far simpler to run stompbox mode. This other songs however lend themselves to a single button switching everything, so this new feature is exactly what I need. I treat Helix as an oldschool pedalboard, but occasionally I feel I want a "GigRig G2". New update fixed that problem. Has been done, that's what was throwing the error. What I noticed was programming each footswitch on HX Edit caused unreliable results. EG: Choosing FS10 as Snapshot 4. Pressing save. Cycling through FS7, 8, and 9 worked as intended with snapshot 1, 2, and 3 respectively. But pressing FS10 triggered the SNAPSHOT ^ I would then go back into Command Centre and see that the footswitch was set to trigger "Next" on press, rather than "Snapshot 4". I had only set it as Snapshot 4 moments before. However, programming it from the command centre onboard Helix itself caused each snapshot to work correctly. I don't wanna seem like everything I don't understand is an error, but repeating an action onboard Helix functioned as intended, whereas completing the identical action in HX Edit seemed to cause the above issues. It did seem, when I was working on it yesterday, that the error only happened when I closed Command Centre in HX Edit, but that no longer seems accurate. I have recreated the above issue just before though. This could be tremendously useful in the future, especially for structured festival shows like we play.

  3. Not buggy. You just have to program the command for each footswitch per snapshot. The SNAPSHOT ^ is the default setting for each command. This was a change in the 3.15 update.

  4. You need to "initialize" the DSL to receive MIDI commands. Please see the instructions below. Since the DSL40CR clean is much quieter than the crunch, I have it assigned to a different Master volume. The channels are PC commands & the Masters & FX loop are CC values. Please see the patch below. The attached patch is for A HELIX RACK w/ foot controller. On the DSL each of the 4 channels clean, crunch, OD1, OD2 are assigned in a loop to every four MIDI program change messages and can’t be changed e.g. PC 00 = CLEAN PC 01 = CRUNCH PC 02 = OD1 PC 03 = OD2 PC 04 = CLEAN PC 05 = CRUNCH PC 06 = OD1 PC 07 = OD2 PC 08 = CLEAN etc. Connect the MIDI controller to the DSL – MIDI Out to MIDI In. Multiple equipment can be connected using MIDI thrus where available. Always ensure each piece of connected equipment is set to a different MIDI channel. 1. Set the receive MIDI channel on the DSL, this only needs to be done once.… Press and hold the Loop On/Off switch (Front Panel Function #23) while powering up the amplifier to activate MIDI waiting mode. The LED will flash until a valid MIDI command is received. Send a MIDI PC command on the required MIDI channel from the connected controller to the DSL The MIDI receive channel on the DSL will now be set. 2. If the user just wants to recall one variation of each channel, they can select each channel in turn from the front panel and set the state of the FX loop and Master (the switch settings are remembered per channel). They then only need to set their MIDI controller to send the appropriate program change message to recall that channel on the DSL. 3. If the user wishes to have multiple variations of each channel recalled e.g. Clean with FX Loop on and Master 1 and then clean with FX Loop Off and Master 2. They will need to set their controller to send a program change message to select the DSL’s channel and then MIDI CC messages to set the state of the FX Loop and Master. For example: Clean with FX Loop On and Master 1 – Send: PC=00 [DSL Clean Channel] CC=13 Value = 1 [DSL FX Loop On] CC=14 Value = 0 [DSL Master 1] Clean with FX Loop Off and Master 2 – Send: PC=00 [DSL Clean Channel] CC=13 Value = 0 [DSL FX Loop Off] CC=14 Value = 1 [DSL Master 2] dsl40cr control.hlx

  5. @rthirdeye Your post is not 100% clear. You say you are changing channels on your amp. This would not change anything in the FX chain. The amp channel would change but everything else in your Helix would stay exactly the same. It sounds to me like what you are actually doing is changing patch. ie, one patch has the amp on o channel 1 and the other patch has the amp on channel 2. In this case all the settings in Helix could change. You do not have to change patch to change your amp channel. You could set this up as a switch, or as a snapshot. Neither of these requires the spillover feature (which limits you to one chain). Not saying this is bad...I like the spillover approach as I don't usually use more than 8 blocks at a time.

  6. If you haven't already, try the following before reverting back to 3.11. Did you also do a backup before doing the factory reset and then restore the backup afterwards? The backup restore is also part of the firmware upgrade process. Make sure to restart your Helix after the restore and ensure they have completed the rebuild process.

  9. I was having some issues with strange snapshot parameters behaviour a few weeks ago. A factory reset solved it. Make sure you back up appropriately first.
