    If you highlight the IR Block, in the edit pane you'll see IR Select. That allows you to substitute ant of the 128 IRs you can store in the Helix without removing and replacing the block itself. You should probably review the Impulse Responses section of the manual.

    What version of HX Edit and the firmware are you on? The first thing you might try is getting a backup and then doing a global reset. - https://helixhelp.com/tips-and-guides/universal/reset-options. Try doing a restore from backup after that if it is still having issues. If that does not work I would do the following: Uninstall and reinstall HX Edit 3.10 It should prompt you to upgrade the firmware if you are not at version 3.11 of the firmware. Go ahead and upgrade. Follow the firmware update release note instructions. Do a global reset, and then restore from backup. If for some reason you can't run the firmware update from HX Edit then exit it and use the Line6 Updater instead. Again, do the global reset, and then restore from backup. Hopefully this should get you up and running without the lockups. Paying $700 for a Helix is an absolute steal, leaves you with zero chance of ever having buyer's remorse, and it should be very much worth your while to put some time into stabilizing your device. As rd2rk said you should be under warranty if all else fails anyway.

    I do understand what the OP is worried about and have experienced it to one degree or another through the years. Not during performance but often when I'm working on a preset at home. I do 90% of my changes on the Helix itself and there have been times when I'm using one of the knobs that I accidently turn it while trying to navigate which results in a change. I've never really worried about it because I save my presets often during and after I finish with them so if I inadvertently change something I simply move to a different preset then back to the original preset which will be the last saved version. I might have to re-do a couple of things, but that's pretty easy since I just did them them before the incident happened. Granted the tap tempo can be a problem and it would be nice to lock/unlock it on a preset basis, but that's the only situation I could think of that would be of benefit. To me that's no different than any other computer or device I've ever owned. If I make a mistake, I back out and then come back into it which reflects the state prior to my changes. I'd rather do that than have to deal with constantly turning protection on and off. It works the same but without the hassle.

    I would use a return before I would use an AUX for this purpose... then apply the EXP to the "mix control" on the return. That avoids the need for any splits/merge.... the EXP is only controlling a single BLEND rather than two VOLUMES. You will likely have to get a feel of the transition... but it should be very smooth. You should set the RETURN to instrument level in the global settings so the inputs are roughly matched. If you still have a volume mismatch... there is also a return level to work with on the return block.

    You can - it’s not a secret - here’s a quote from the Helix Owner’s Manual - Rev E, Page 66, Global Settings > Footswitches. If you don’t want this “touch” behavior (such as if you play barefoot!), set this to “Off.” “PierM” pointed this out in the earlier comment above, also by “codamedia” back in Dec 2019. Seems simple enough to me. Although, I’m intrigued by the statement that you are rehearsing in an environment full of static electricity? You do realise that electronic components are prone to failure when subject to large static voltages. Maybe you ought to have a look at getting that taken care of. Shocking, truly shocking.

    Also, you mention cleans are OK but higher gains suck. Hmmmm. All the advice here is excellent, but do pay special attention to your levels throughout the signal path (audio interface, Helix input and all blocks, Garageband levels, etc). Make sure nothing is being over-driven, and better to boost levels at your final output if needed.

    Thanks, makes sense and also helps. I just wish that Native could sync to the Stomp. When I tried to match Native to my Stomp (preset order, IR slot numbers, etc) it was a royal pain; lots of manual work. I was hoping I could just import the Stomps backup file into Native in one swoop. No such luck. Looks there's no easy path, @karlkaminski .... just some manual labor. I'll look on Ideascale and see if anyone has requested some sort of hardware-to-Native synch or import. UPDATE. There are at least 4 separate idea requests on Ideascale along the same lines. Here they are, with the two on top being the most relevant. Vote if ya want! https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Ability-to-Restore-Native-from-HX-Edit-Backup/918622-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Sync-Function-between-Helix-Hardware-HX-Edit-Helix-Native/918019-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Helix-Floor-Helix-Native-Sync/990695-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Complete-backup-of-setlist-AND-impulse-responses/967237-23508

    Hi, O.K. Let’s take it one step at a time. You will be mainly using your HX Stomp as a fly rig for gigging - no problem. You obviously have a whole bunch of presets in there that you are familiar with, know and love. That’s good, and using HX Edit, you are able to manipulate those to exactly how you want them to sound. You can save all your presets, setlists etc., to a folder on your Mac, most likely there is one already inside the “Documents” folder in the side bar of your Mac, named “Line 6”. The best thing to do is to create another folder inside that one, named “Native Only”, which you can use to contain any duplicates of your Stomp presets you want to load into Native and modify. You can load those presets into Native as is, and they will function and sound exactly as they do in the hardware Stomp. Unless you modify them and save them back out from Native they will remain unchanged. That way, by keeping your fly rig/live presets separate you are always good to go and you have “fail safe” backups on your Mac. HX Edit is an editor/librarian application which basically reflects what changes you make on your Stomp hardware. There is absolutely no automation in HX Edit, you manage what is saved and updated. You need to save those files on your Mac in case of any mishap with the Stomp. Whereas, essentially, Helix Native is the software brain of the Helix Hardware and HX Edit combined in the DAW plugin. Therefore your scenario is totally implausible. As long as you keep a safety copy of the presets you might need in your hardware unit, you should be able to chop and change and create monster presets inside Native. Just remember- always work on a copy. Hope this helps/makes sense.

    UPDATE: After doing more testing thanks to the user AgFx's topic it has become apparent that the 'Extract Files From Backup' command does have an additional showstopping bug. The presets it extracts fail when you try to import them with the following message: "-8103 - Target is incompatible". This makes the extracts currently unusable. At least on HX Edit 3.10 and firmware 3.11. I have opened a ticket with Line6 with this major bug and also including the more minor bugs I already reported. Hopefully others will open a ticket on this utility as well. Would like to see it fixed soon as it is as already commented on very useful. Dissapointing but until Line6 fixes it I would encourage those who make backups of their setlists or presets to keep using HX Edit's old export functions until this utility is dependable.

    Well never mind then... There is no definitive answer to this question. If you have designed a workable setup that does what you need it to do, is easy to control, and you like what you hear, then the battle is over and you've won... and if it turns out that whatever you've done isn't a textbook example of the "right" way to do things, who gives a $hit? If it works, it works. Either way, nobody can tell you from afar if you'll prefer one method over another. And no matter what the manual alleges to be the "best" or "correct" way to do things, it may or may not suit your personal needs/ tastes. EVH spent his whole life quite literally butchering guitars and amps until he got the sound he wanted... and I seriously doubt he lost much sleep over whether or not he was "doing it right" or not. Point is, there is exactly one way to find out: Try it and see what happens. If you decide you like it better, then more power to you... but nobody here can predict how that's gonna turn out.

    Also,see manual page 8.2 for USB info. The dry signals from Tone 1 Input and Tone 2 Input are sent over USB channels 7 and 8 to your computer. Make sure Pod Farm is set to receive, as its input, whichever one of these channels/signals you want to use.

    I agree doesn't seem right to leave the unit powered on the charge the G10. Would have been a better design to have the transmitter charge in the Storage well. I wonder if the Line 6 design team thought of this but had to cut costs and not route a phantom power supply to the storage well. Oh well, live and learn. The manual is not clear on this point, and should be updated to clearly state, "to charge the G10 transmitter, the Pod Go Wireless unit MUST be powered on."

    Learning something new every day! :-O :-O :-D I dont have a camera adapter, but it seems to be a good idea to have one anyway (i miss some connectivity on my iPad). After thinking a little bit about it, it might be the best way for me not to waste precious 'inputs' (returns, Aux, ....) and blocks on my Helix just for inserting signals that i dont want to process or handle differently for different presets after all. First: At a lot of my gigs i feed those signals seperately to the mixing console anyway, so the engineer can mix them seperately ... Second: Even if i want to merge all together into a single (stereo or mono) signal small mixers are cheap, easy to use and very flexible. Thank you very much for letting me dive deeper into the Helix. ... you have inspired me a lot!! Simon

    fwiw, I was doing some searches on Eminence Legend and it sounds like in google searches they are often contrasted with v30s and greenbacks, but having a smoother character. I'll give those type cabs a try.

    I doubt you would want to run full Helix volume direct to your speakers as you'd want to set your speaker's gain knobs to 12 o'clock and then manage the volume from your Helix volume knob. That's the most practical way to do it with 1/4" cables. Normally you'd disengage your volume knob on the XLR outputs to send to a mixing board. In that case you would use Global ins/outs to set the XLR output to Mic level and specify the Volume knob would not be controlling it....which in effect sends the signal out of the XLR outputs as if the Helix volume knob was set on full.

    Hi, Best guess from your initial description is that GoPro Mic Adapter is not set correctly for the input coming from your mixer. As I understand the adapter is switchable between mic/line input. I would probably check how that is working first. I’m intrigued by the idea of you using your Helix for this job. I imagine that you’re using it as an audio interface from a computer to your camera. You didn’t say why the mixer is involved in this scenario, because you could simply use 1/4 to RCA cables directly from the Helix, with the output set to Line in the Globals, and then into the Mic Adapter on Line input. Anyhow a little more information as to what you are doing and how everything is set up might give more idea of the issue. Hope this help/makes sense.

    Hi Guys I wanted to share with you my my setup for using Helix Native as a live rig (band practice and gigging). This is my first post in this forum and the reason I wrote it, is because firstly I wanted to share my experiences with this new adventure and secondly maybe get in touch with other people who are thinking about going down the same road. I will first quickly say a few words about why I decided to try to make this work and then present my (current) setup. A quick spoiler: While I am not in any way claiming that my solution is the perfect one or my decisions were particularly smart (and I am happy for any kind of input and feedback) I am absolutely loving what I have achieved so far... Being so happy is in fact one of the main reasons why I am writing this, because maybe it makes some of you happy as well :) Background Some background because some people might wonder why I am even doing this (and not just buy a Helix hardware unit for example). You can skip this and directly check out my setup below, if you are not interested :) My L6 amp modeling journey has started around 2000 with POD2.0 and I have had numerous setups over time, going through tube amps and also trying direct into PA. For a very long time I was not happy with the sound of the direct PA solution and so I settled with running my PODs into Fender Amps. There I was very happy with the tone, even though there was always a Fender colour in it. I pretty much stuck to this solution until and including PODX3Live. When POD HD came out, I was intrigued by the solution of running it into the Line6 DT25 hybrid amp because it seemed the perfect combo of modeled pre-amps and tube power amp with adapting analogue circuitry. Unfortunately, this was somehow the setup I was the least happy with tone-wise. I don't know whether my expectations just grew over time or whether I was not tuning in the patches correctly but I have spent hours and hours reading forum entries, tutorials, the MeAmBobbo PodHD Guide (what an awesome guide!), etc. and still something always felt just a tiny bit off when I played. I somehow got used to it over the years, but there was always this itch in the back of my head leaving me slightly unsatisfied. I could go on a long time to try to explain my current understanding of what was wrong, but this would be a different post. Let's just say, I believe now that the true "ultimate" setup with Amp Modeling can only be going out directly to a PA. Anything else will always somehow compromise the vision of dialling in totally different amps, cabs and microphones. My problem so far was, that I never liked to tone of going direct to PA from a Modeller. UNTIL NOW .. what a dramatic story :) I do not want to convince anyone here, or say that this will be true for other people, but for my ears, the helix is the first Modeller I run into the PA and immediately fell in love with. It felt so responsive, so deep, so diverse, so limitless... I knew that the time has come for me to ditch the tubes. So I started to look into options and right about that time I heard, that Helix Native is coming. While I was sceptical I was also very intrigued. This has been my absolute dream ever since I first laid my eyes on a POD: Just bring my computer and have the same sound anywhere I like, total flexibility, get rid of all this analogue machinery (except for the guitar) and free myself in the digital world. I know, I know... it will never be exactly the same sound... But still, it was my dream. To give you some less irrational reasons, here is: My Motivation: Why is using Helix Native live so great for me? I am totally aware that this setup will not be for everyone, so after this long and boring story, here in short my reasons of why I will not look back: - Modularity: I am a fan of having a modular system. The amp modeller is one module (could be split up as well, do not see any reason currently, but with my digital setup, I could combine it with other amp modellers or effect plugins). Other modules are the foot controller, the computer that runs the modeller, the audio interface... I like the following things about modularity: I am able to exchange the modules, if better options exist or something breaks. Depending on where I play I might not need all the modules (e.g. foot controller). I have more flexibility and control over the modules, for example, I can freely configure the foot controller to also control other elements in my setup (e.g. Mobius Looper). - Size: As a direct consequence of modularity, I can leave the Floor-Board in my practice room and all I need to carry is the laptop, which I usually carry anyway, and the audio interface, if I don't have one in the practice room. - Cost: I already have a good laptop and an audio interface, so... Also, if a better Helix Native will come out (or whatever the name will be), I will only have to pay upgrade costs for that part of my setup. - Extensibility: Since the Helix will run in a VST Host I get limitless possibilities to further combine it with other Processing effects. - Dependability: I know this is a matter of taste but I hugely prefer to make digital backups of my Laptop (which I do anyway) and bring a second laptop and audio interface for my gig (which I can borrow from a friend) than needing to constantly sync and backup my Helix hardware unit and organise two Helix units for a gig. If I have one Helix Unit and if it fails, I am out of options. If it gets stolen or I loose it, I will have to buy a new one (The same is true for the laptop, but the laptop is in a similar price range but does so much more). With Helix Native, I have more options to setup a more redundant and fail-safe system. I will only need to replace the module that failed. I know that this does not come for free. There are more cables - common, it's not that bad :) Modularity also means that for each module you have tons of options and it will take time to read into these options and make decisions and set them up. But for me personally, it was totally worth it. And maybe the next section will save some time for others who dream of the same advantages like me. So finally: My Setup Guitar: well, not relevant here but I play a Godin Montreal and I love it ;) Audio Interface: I have a RME Babyface Pro, which supposedly provides great quality at a reasonable price and to my ears it sounds great through the PA system. The instrument input impedance is slightly lower than normal for guitar amps or effects but I cannot hear any problem and plugin in guitars is one officially mentioned application scenario for the Babyface Pro so I trust that the RME guys know what they are doing. I also really like the software mixer that comes with the Babyface Pro. As with the Helix hardware units (discussed at length in many forums) listening to your guitar through headphones is a thing one has to get used to. It will never sound the same as listening to your sound through a high power PA system. But I read a lot about this and by now I am pretty convinced that this is just the way it is and there is nothing you can do about it. Headphones are not high powered amps + loudspeakers in a room. If you plan on practicing a lot with headphones, get decent headphones (there are other threads on this topic) but be aware that it will never sound the same as through a PA. PC: I have a Mac Book Pro with El Capitan from 2010 (quite old) and no problems so far. You can read a lot that SSD Disks are important but I don't really get why? This is definitely true for recording, since there, you save your audio to the disk and the disk is one of the slowest things on your computer. But for live use, I think RAM and Processor speed are way more important. I don't have a SSD and I only have 4GB RAM and so far no problems. I have never looked into this but I think, if you buy a decent laptop today, it will have more performance than the helix units anyway, so this should not be a limiting factor. VST Host: I have evaluated various options and I have found that for my application the Live Professor by audioström is by far the best VST Host. It provides exactly what I need but nothing more. It is easy to learn and has a nice user interface. The most important thing that it brings to the table that some others don't, is that you can safe the entire Helix Native plugin state as a "snapshot" in Live Professor itself. This is crucial currently because Helix Native does (at the point of this writing) not support snapshots or preset changes through MIDI or automation. That means that in Live Professor, I only have one Helix Live instance with one preset active. Once I configured that preset with Amps and effects to my liking, I safe this current state as a snapshot in Live Professor. Live Professor lets me switch between these snapshots seamlessly and I can create Setlists for my concerts that correctly activate the snapshots I need for each song. This in turn can then be mapped to MIDI controls so I can use my MIDI floorboard to switch through my snapshots, each snapshot corresponding to a different amp and effects configuration in Helix Native. You can also map MIDI controls to turn Effects in Helix Native on and off or to control Knobs of Amps etc. Live Professor even supports VST3 and it runs both on Mac and PC, another big plus for me, which should not surprise you since I like to stay flexible. If I ever feel like switching from Mac to PC, I don't want to switch my entire setup. Other Effects: I do a lot of live looping and now I can use the Mobius Looper. I use the standalone version because unfortunately for now, Mobius has still only a 32bit version. This works for me, I simply use the RME Mixer to loopback the output signal of Live Professor back into Mobius and do the looping at the end of the signal chain, which is where I want to have it anyways. If you are interested in live looping, do check out Mobius it is absolutely awesome and offers more than any hardware looper unit I know. Again, another great advantage of using a Laptop and a modular setup. Floorboard: I use the classical Behringer FCB1010 to control the Setlist in Live Professor, the volume in Helix Native and the track volumes and controls of the Mobius looper. Maybe I will add another expression pedal or even another midi board in the future to have even more control options, but for now I am already super happy with this setup. Especially the looper is a big step up from the limited looping options and controller freedom I had with the looper that was built into my PodHD. PA: We have a Yamaha PA in our practice room and I don't even know the exact type but I don't think that it is a particularly expensive one. I truly think that this is one of the advantages of Amp modelling becoming better and better and it will get less and less important of which particular PA system you use as long as it has a decent FRFR. You can fine-tune the sound by EQing for the particular PA and room, but the general sound and feel that I heard so far was always pleasing me. As I said above, this was not the case in the early years of Amp modelling and I think we have definitely transitioned into a time, where tube amps will fade out, as analogue cameras have faded out the last couple of years. At least for me, I think I will never switch back to hardware units and amps from here on out. This was it, thanks for reading. I am curious whether someone even cares but as I said: I was so happy about my new setup that I simply had to write this down. And if someone gets inspired to try a similar setup or shares some thought about his own setup, even better.

    All I can say is Helix Native is worth every dime. The recent updates (3.01, 3.10) are extremely useful if you have a studio. Yes, I was fortunate to buy it for $99 back when I got my Helix floor unit. I had no idea how useful it would be. Glad I spent the extra $99.

    A bit late now. I took precautions before installing the upgrade, by closing all applications, removed the wireless mouse, and I had only the one USB needed for the firmware connected to the system. Windows runs great and all drivers are updated to the latest versions. Maybe the next time, if I remember, I film the process, and of course it will go smoothly. :D)

    The Helix seems pretty forgiving in regards to heat but this sounds like a recipe for overheating your device or electrocution to me. I would set up some kind of three sided box over it before I ever put my device in a bag. And hey, playing in the rain is just plain dangerous as in potentially fatal unless you have a properly covered stage anyway. I have done it(hopefully never again) against my better judgement and defying all natural survival instincts because it was a show I had been really looking forward to combined with a monumental failure of said judgement. It was a case of the frog coming blissfully unaware to a slow boil in the pot as the covering on the stage gradually failed under torrential rain. Does "Is it a bad thing that my pedalboard is sitting in at least a 1/2 inch of water and the PA, backline, and everyone on stage is soaking wet?" sound familiar. If so, well, it shouldn't. I feel lucky to have lived to tell the tale.

    Paulzx - the best approach is to run the Big knob as high as possible - I run mine full on, but some pull it back a fraction in case they need a bit of control at the gig. Many switch the Knob off altogether under Global. As a general rule the most appropriate gain-staging for any signal chain is to run each piece of gear at optimum (OdBm for analog/-14dBFS(ish) for Digital) and control volume at the last point in therchain.

    I've been fooling around with the pitch shifting options a lot, and thought y'all might enjoy this preset. If you're not familiar with Nashville tuning, it has the same 1st and 2nd strings as a regular guitar, but uses the octave-higher strings from a 12-string set for the 3rd - 6th strings. This creates a bright, present sound that's been used on a number of hit songs in both rock and country . A Nashville tuning part is usually layered with a standard rhythm guitar part, so this preset mixes the dry guitar and the "faux" Nashville tuning sound. It's not totally authentic, because the 1st and 2nd strings are an octave higher too. Then again, if it was possible to do that with a regular guitar, maybe that's what Nashville tuning would be using. This preset is designed for the bridge pickup, and strummed chord parts. I hope you enjoy it! NashvilleTuning.hlx

    yeah, im old ...and calling the manual 'pilot guide' is annoying AF. It quickly dawned on me DAH... anyway YES the Pilots Guide is what I needed. (now I have all my HXfamily pilot guides neatly bookmarked) for those interested (like me, a noob to plugins) , the Presets will look like Helix Floor, a switch to HXS compatibility mode Pg13/ Preset Panel Pg20 will show your plugins as if they are in your HXS (which has its own caveats—*to be found in the manual). I think Im going to leave it in Default HC mode and just Import my HXS presets as a USER bank. (hope someone will show me the error of my ways — if need be) ;)

    Well, I suppose you could regard that “built in” guide as “hidden”. Although, the owner/user manuals aren’t a secret and are all available to download. Click on “Support” in the menu at the top of this page and on the next page is a link to Manuals, for all Line 6 products.

    A pure MIDI pedal like that with dedicated (non-programmable) footswitches should not have that affect. With MIDI over USB and MIDI Thru enabled, install a MIDI Monitor on your computer and watch what happens when you turn ON the TX. It should send nothing when first turned on except possibly the messages required for the default HXS MODE (CC#71 Value 0-6). When the switches are pressed it should send only the CC#s required for the designed functions (see page 60 of the HXS 3.0 manual). If that is the case, look elsewhere for the problem.

    I was assuming that you would have the block bypassed in the snapshot where you didn’t want to control its parameters. If you’re not doing that, then it’s not going to work. That’s the only way you can “fake” it. Other than that, all control assignments are preset wide.

    You know, this is going to bite one of on the ar5e... Joking aside, my FIRST update to my Helix fell over. For some reason, my PC rebooted in the middle of the process - it looked like it would be a lengthy process, so went for a smoke, came back... this was 5 minutes in to the very first time I'd even switched the Helix on. Got a boot failure of some kind... I just thought 'F*** it, if THIS doesn't work, it goes back.' Restarted L6 Updater, it was recognised, reinstalled the update. All good. The threads are useful, if for no other reason than to remind me to not get blase and follow the instructions.

    That’s good to know - if only others would fully read the release notes, owner’s manuals and previous posts before opening yet another thread where they squawk like there is a fox in the hen house “update bricked my Helix” and “I now have a $1000 paperweight”. Surprisingly, possibly through embarrassment, very few come back to explain what actually went wrong and how it got fixed. I tend to try to be as helpful as possible when English isn’t the first language of the poster. Although frankly, after this last debacle, that was supposed to make updates easier - I might just retreat to get on with my life and let them figure it out. It really has stopped being amusing and started to become tedious now. Post Traumatic Stupidity Disorder. ;-)

    Thanks to AgFX for bringing attention to an additional bug that renders this command unreliable until it is fixed. The preset files the 'Extract Files From Backup' utility extracts fail when you try to import them back into your device with the following message: "-8103 - Target is incompatible". Perhaps there is a manual edit that could be done to the extracted preset files in the meantime that could get them in the proper format for import but who wants to have to do that. I opened up a Line6 ticket with all three of the bugs discovered so far. Update: AgFx posted that he went ahead and figured out the manual edit required for the preset files produced by the extraction and was able to import them so they do provide some measure of usefulness but for most users this utility still needs to be fixed.

    Any possibility you were the one who named the snapshots in the older version? Are the contents/settings of the snapshots in the first screenshot the same as the second but just named generically with the defaults(e.g. "Snapshot 1")? Try exporting the old one in the second screenshot that is working properly and then importing it. Does that work? If so I would say that there is a good chance that your download is simply a different version of the preset, even if it appears the same as the one you downloaded initially. Also as always, check in HX Edit if 'Help' --> 'About HX Edit' is showing HX Edit 3.10 with the firmware at 3.11(assuming you are on the latest version).

    there is no right or wrong answer, only an 'intended usage' answer so, here goes: The X units shipped with rather new firmware. Not the newest, but new enough that you don't need anything newer if: 1. Update if you have problems. Updates always contain bug fixes. 2. You MUST update if you intend on using the add-on model packs (available for a fee). 3. Update if you intend on using any of the connectivity features (EDIT, Monkey, Gear Box, etc). Most users are going to be fine with never updating the X units. People with the 500 would see a tremendous change if they have never updated. In fact, because the four units are the same when up to date, I prevented multiple people from buying the 500X simply by updating their 500.

    The clip sounded great.... I'm not a preset guy... I've got my own Nile Rodgers settings - but it sure sounds like you nailed it with your presets. I might have to download that Bernard Edwards (bass) preset though to take a look.

    Hmmm. That's crazy high. What happens if you create a mono track, and select Helix Native Mono --> Stereo. And try running with 512 buffer and see if that helps.

    Just curious, Will the upcoming POD Go Editor be available to iPads and other mobile devices via an app...like with the Spider Remote? I think it should be...so one doesn't need to be tethered to a laptop or PC in order to edit menus on a larger screen.. That was always my pet peeve when using the external editor with my PODxtPro rack unit and Flextone HD Combo back in the 2000 era. I know it won’t have bluetooth....but iPad edit capability would be nice. Then it would be truly a “go” piece of kit.

    I would be nice to have a standalone version. For all the reasonns mentioned above, and sometimes I just want to pick the guitar, plug it it, and practice with a good tone. And don't have to open any DAW would be nice...

    Hmmm, that is rather shortsighted. This is 2020 and iPads are now used as much as a laptop or PC. An iPad (or other mobile device) based editor should be standard today with all Line 6 products.

    Some of these types of effects tend to need extra headroom because they can be additive to the signal. So if you start to hear a sort of clipped, or unwanted overdriven signal because of an effect in the chain like a chorus, increase this parameter. It allows more breathing room. A much better and more concise explanation is here: http://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/line6-helix.1586637/page-681#post-20795301

    Thanks, I tried it with just the 1 cable and it worked.
