  1. Solved it other way. Just bought TRS to TS Y cable and it works like a charm. Thanks for the tips though !

  2. I'd say to start with your go-to preset, record a DI track, duplicate the DI track and use Native to re-amp DI tracks until you find the combination that floats your boat. You can always double-triple-quadruple-track once you've found presets that you like, but use the DI tracks and Native to find those sounds vs playing the parts over and over till you hate them.

  3. Description gave me an headache. These things, without a sound sample of the problem and a very specific documentation on power sources, routing, devices involved and settings, are just opening a door for an infinite list of assumptions, guessing or different interpretations of that "tremolo" effect. Never had/heard something similar tho.

  4. That would require a hardware change so, until there's a v2 of the Catalyst I don't think it'll happen and when/if it does, it'll probably be on the 100/200 models. For now, MIDI is the way to go, but not so easy for you I'm afraid. The Cat60 does not support MIDI except over USB, so you'd need a HOST device (I think there's a way to do it with iPhone/iPad) as well as the MIDI switcher.

  5. When you switch from A to B what you're actually doing is switching PRESETS. "A" unloads from memory and then "B" loads. A radical shift in amp types and/or gain settings will cause a loud noise like a "pop" if there are notes ringing during the switch. This is true throughout the entire Helix family. With the full-fat Helix units you can split the Path and put a Clean amp on one and a Hi-Gain amp on the other. With the split block set to A/B you can use a FS or Snapshot to re-route the signal from A to B and that eliminates the "pop". If doing that sort of tone shift is important to your playing you may want to consider adding something like an HX Stomp or, if you can afford it, a used LT will further add an expression pedal.. Yes, I know, two to four times the price of the amp, but also an exponential increase in the amp's capabilities. Just something to consider. Or you could go "old school" and put a gain pedal of some sort up front... DS-1 and Distortion+ types can be had NEW for <$75 and USED for pennies.

  6. Btw, you can backup multiple presets at one time into individual files by highlighting them as a group in HX Edit and then hitting the 'Export' link for presets. You can also now just run an 'Extract Files From Backup' (under the 'File' heading in HX Edit) and it will automatically extract all your presets into a nice logical file structure. Just create a new backup before you run the extract. Couldn't be easier.

  7. FRFR cabs are not really true FRFR. They're all a little different. That's why there are comparison articles and videos about choosing the right FRFR. It comes as no surprise to me that a different cab will sound different with the same patch.

  8. I have seen Line 6 gear and about every other digital brand experience drop outs on generator gigs & iify venues where the performer chose not to use an AVR on their input power..power drops below 90 volts you can get resets...If I had a dollar everytime I saw this with a support act and let them plug into my avr, I would have a new American P bass...Another thing an AVR does is isolates your power in the same way a DI isolates your signal...transformers always break ground loops since they don't pass thru a tranny. If you are not using a direct box, I suggest considering it....Line 6 quasi-balanced...this situation reads like iffy power and poor power & signal isolation, but then I don't really have enough information to make an informed guess on this. Best of luck to you.
