    This is something I never thought I would do, mostly because of the hype around the Klon over the TubeScreamer. But what works in some situations doesn't work as well in others, and you have to judge tone with your ears, not your eyes. I mostly play single-coil pickups - Strat Deluxe, Tele, and Variax JTV-69S. I just like the character and brightness of these pickups. I also have a '67 Les Paul with Tom Holmes pickups and a very nice black Epiphone Sheraton Pro II. What I found is that its important to match the distortion blocks with the guitar and amp. A typical single coil pickup is going to be a bit scooped in the mids, giving it that bright and deep tone that sounds so good by itself. If you pair single coil pickups with a Fender style amp, it's even more scooped. I typically use Derailed Ingrid or Litigator both of which are Fender style amps. I think Fender might have done this because it made the guitar and amp sound really good by itself in the showroom, helping sales. But in a mix, all that scooping can make the guitar get a little lost. The Klon is high headroom, low gain, hard clipper with some mid boost at 1kHz, but not a lot. Contrast with the TubeScreamer which is lower headroom, higher gain, soft clipper with a lot of mid boost at around 720Hz. When I compared them using the JTV-69s into Derailed Ingrid, I found the Scream808 just sounded better. I think it's because that guitar and amp needs that slightly lower frequency, slightly higher mid boost, higher gain and since the pickups are already pretty bright, the soft clipper's more even order harmonics seemed to fit better with the guitar. So maybe the magic with the Klon/Minotaur happens with double coil humbucker pickups into Marshall style amps. This combination is already pretty dark with a fair amount of mid focus and high output. So the Klon's lower gain, slightly higher frequency mid boost, slightly lower mid hump and hard clipper producing more odd order harmonics works better to brighten things up a little. I also swapped out the Compulsive Drive (OCD) with the Dhyana Drive (Zendrive) for higher gain sounds. I felt like this was a better fit with my guitar and amp choices, and was a bit more controllable. I'm pretty happy with the result. It seemed to enforce the fact that different distortion pedals work better with different guitar and amp combinations. So don't pick the "best" distortion block, pick the one that works best with your guitar, amp and musical style.

    This is basically how it works. When you load a preset, all four snapshots are the same. If you enter Snapshot 2 from Snapshot 1, the settings will be the same as they were in one until you start changing them. There's no such thing as an empty snapshot. I actually think editing snapshots in POD Go Edit is a little easier than in HX Edit... You just click the little box next to the parameter you want to assign to the Snapshot controller, and check it... It's pretty simple. I really feel like you're just looking for things to complain about. I honestly really don't know what your specific complaint about snapshots is...

    I probably shouldn’t bother responding to you because you seem to only want to complain... With the amount of energy you’ve spent writing these diatribes and posting memes, you probably could’ve figured this out a while ago. You can complain about the basic UI decisions all you want, but the reality is they aren’t changing them at this point in the game. The POD Go’s interface is essentially the same as the Helix interface, so tons of people are familiar and used to it by now. Rather than actually looking at it, you seem to be projecting your expectations on it. It’s really not hard to use. It’s the easiest interface for any multi-FX device I’ve ever used, that’s for sure.

    Has anyone ever tried to put the looper in a different out? I would like to be able to record the looper in a separate track and still play on top of it in another track. I'm using the Helix light with xr18 into reaper. Just curious if anyone else has tried this.

    Line 6 added input and output indicator bars to the recent firmware. I advise that you check that you are actually getting a signal from your guitar into your Helix and then that the signal Is getting as far is the output. Add a compressor block to see if the meters react on that. After that it will be a process of elimination as to where the signal is going, does it come through to the XLRs or from the USB for example. When all else fails - raise a ticket as “phil_m” suggests in the post above.

    What's in your HX Stomp signal path? Are you using a cab model or IR?

    Hi Kane21014, I would suggest ensuring that the 'Contour' setting on the back of your Headrush Monitor is set to flat, as well as ensuring your signal to the speaker isn't clipping the input. If you are still concerned regarding the quality of playback with distortion models; I would then recommend auditioning tones through a quality set of headphones or another FRFR speaker to help determine the culprit.

    i can hardly believe this is still not fixed!!! how can they say this unit is perfect for 4CM when the units fx loop doesn't have seperate send and return level????!!! when you send your pre-preamp signal from your hx send into the amps front input, you'll need instrument level, and when you then send your amps fx send with line level fx loop (what definitely sounds better) back into the hx return, this will need line level of course!!!! all it needs is to be able to set the hx send and return seperately...!!! this has actually been promised to get fixed...still isn't...;-( very disappointing and incredible actually...they even write this stupid sentence into the manual..."If your amp's effects loop happens to run at line level, you should set the inputs and outputs of HX Stomp to line level as well...."

    Well, they did add the HX Looper commands to the Command Center in 2.90. So now you can program any looper command to any footswitch in Stomp Mode. You don't have to actually go to looper mode if you don't want to.

    Look in the manual at the Command Center options. Page 35. https://line6.com/data/6/0a020a3d3f4a5a6a1897ecdf6/application/pdf/HX Effects 2.50 Owners Manual - English .pdf That shows you how to send MIDI CC settings. For the iridium you would need a cable that converts the 5 pin midi to a TRS plug. strymon sell one, and it sounds like you've got one. Helix and HX Effects have command center HX Stomp does not as far as I know.

    Many of the amp models in Helix can produce a wide range of similar sounds. There's a lot of overlap in the tones, especially when using the amp pretty clean as a pedal platform. Choice of guitar/pickups and cab model or IR choice will often have greater impact on tone. Where the amps tend be more unique is in how the distort, how much gain they have, whether the distortion is preamp or power amp, position of the tone controls in the signal chain (before or after distortion), etc. If you're looking for tone, a good place to start is with musicians you like that have a tone you like. Do some research to see what amp and pedal platforms they use and try to reproduce them in Helix. Then find a good recording with the tone you like and use it as a reference to reproduce the tone, or refine your own. I model my tone based on Matt Schofield's using this technique.

    got it to work.. it's really cool... (for me anyway :)) so I have a path 2 and now path 2A. 2A only has the looper on it and it's out is to the 1/4 inch. The looper is at the end of the chain. Path 2 out is to the XLR's. I have the xlr's and 1/4 inches on different inputs on the XR18. When creating the loop, I have the mix between path 2 and 2a set in the middle. When playing the loop and playing on top of it (and recording all this in separate tracks in Reaper) I have the mix between path 2 and 2a set to bypass the looper. This way, none of my guitar playing gets through on the looper 1/4 outs as well as the looper doesn't get in the xlr outs. I thought that was cool :)

    Exactly. What's slightly confusing here, however, at least for a Helix Universe novice like me, is that the "Channel Volume" usually appears before "Master" in the parameter chain. It should be the other way around, following this signal path logic. Anyway, we're getting slightly off topic here. :)

    The Send block should be in the A-path. It splits the signal already by itself: Dry Through goes to Main Out, Send goes to, well, Send. With your setup, the Send block likely sends everything to Send Out anyway, is thus totally redundant. You could then utilize the B-path elsewhere for your effects if needed. (You can have only one B-path on the Stomp.) If you're using stereo effects, just make sure to select a stereo Send block. Whereas if you're going mono on both outputs anyway, you may want to use mono effects all the way through to save some processing cycles. Here's what I've set up last week, for a pop-rock band where I'm playing bass guitar on stage. Last Saturday I've already used this setup live: Send goes to my stage amp (H&K Quantum QC415) that I'm using solely as a monitor here. Dry Thru continues to Amp+Cab block (Ampeg SVT4 Pro + 6×10 Cali Power) to Main that goes straight into the FOH via a self-soldered TRS-to-XLR balanced patch cable so there's not even a D.I. box needed. The B-path effects are active for one song only, saved as a Snapshot, using a Split Crossover so that the low frequencies remain unchanged while the high frequences go through a Dual Pitch and Tape Head Delay (Wet only) to kinda emulate a pulsating synth pattern that they've used on the studio recording of the song. Long story short: even with just 6 blocks, you can do crazy fun things on this device! :)

    An IR replaces your cab block... they're completely independent of the amp model you're using. It's just a fixed capture of a particular cabinet and mic combination. They're a bit easier to use, as there are no parameters to adjust as you have with the cab block. You drop it in, and you'll either like the sound of a particular IR, or you don't and move on to the next one... which brings us to the rabbit hole. A typical IR bundle will have dozens, perhaps a couple of hundred of individual files to sift through... different mics, mic positions, etc. It can become exhausting to toggle through them all to find the handful that you'll like and use regularly. Are they "better" than the Helix cabs?. Absolutely yes. Definitely not. Yes, but only on Tuesdays with a full moon... depends on who you ask. "Better" is in the ear of the beholder, just like everything else that gets discussed around here.

    Use a Send block after all the blocks that you want to route to your amp (Send jack). Everything else after the Send block goes then to FOH only (Output jack). The B path mixer must be placed before the Send block.

    Thank you Riley for the solution, my Amplifit is now working perfectly.

    There are really no rules of when to use any of them. It's just whatever sounds best to you and what works best for your situation. For instance, I got tired of fishing for IR's that I liked, so I tried the PC speaker sims. They are all I use now. If you use the speaker sims, you can mic your PC for live use, or run direct from the PC. However, if you just want to use your PC as a monitor only, and run direct from Helix to FOH, then you would want to us IR's or Helix cabs. IR's and Helix cabs are basically the same thing, it just that the Helix cab models allow for more tweaking (mic type, distance, room reflection, etc.). Each IR you use (3rd party) has all these values fixed.

    Just send one amp to a path output, and assign that output to USB 1/2, and the other path to a different path output and assign it to USB 3/4. If you haven't modified your unit global configuration you'll have your DI in USB 7. In your DAW you'll just have to select USB 1 (mono) or USB 1/2 (stereo) as the input for one amp track, USB 3 o 3/4 for the other amp track, and USB 7 (mono) for the DI track. In order to monitor while recording, you will also have to send both amps to the 1/4' jack or XLR outputs, I use volume blocks to control the blend of both amps. Dual Amp.hlx

    If you have your LT FX loop send 1 and 2 into the input A and B on the DD-200 then Output A & B back into return 1and 2 you should be fine. You have the option to adjust the level sent in and out and how it is mixed back in. Check page 31 of the LT Owner’s Manual https://line6.com/data/6/0a020a3e07b158e5548ea50d4/application/pdf/Helix LT Owner's Manual - English .pdf#page31 Clean and dirty amps can be switched in various way, assigned to a regular foot-switch, or even better a “snapshot”, which is like having preset inside presets. If you wanted to, you can blend from one amp to another using the expression pedal. As for research the best option would be to check out the tutorial videos made by Jason Sadites, they seem to be the industry standard for newbies on this forum. Here ya go - how to start with snapshots. Have fun.

    Ran mine through my Marshall DSL 100 using the four cable method and it would rock your socks off. There's the obvious tweaking to be done etc... but it works just fine through an amp. I switch between the DSL and a Headrush FRFR 108, and the POD GO sounds fantastic through both. Use the later for portability.

    See the HX Stomp section in https://jimamsden.wordpress.com/2020/04/04/remote-jamming-with-helix-and-jamulus/. This explains how to use a Return block on path B to provide a mic input and volume control, and route the output to USB 3/4 in order to turn off direct monitoring in HX Stomp. Note that after opening some ports on my router, I'm finding JamKazam works quite well too. The band has started rehearsing again remotely, and its working fine.

    Hi, I had exactly the same problem with my FS7 foot switch. But I think I've just fixed the issue. Apart from setting the EXP/FS to FS4 and FS5, I changed the 'TIP POLARITY' to 'Inverted' and the 'RING POLARITY' to 'Inverted'. They were both previously set to 'Normal'. Just to clarify, this is in 'Global Setting' under 'Preferences'. As far as the foot switch, it seems to work if the polarity is set to l or ll. And of course it's set to Momentary. Now my FS7 is working fine. Hope that helps!

    OK, found a fix. There's a bug with the folder permissions when it installs, but the app is actually there. 1. Do the install 2. Go to your Applications folder where there'll be a 'Line '6 folder with a no entry sign on it 3. Get Info on this folder (CMD-I) 4. On the bottom-right of the Info pop-up will be a little padlock. Click this and type in your Mac password 5. At the bottom of the pop-up, click the menu item under 'Privilege' for 'everyone'. It'll be set to 'No access' I think. Change to 'Read only' That's it. The app will now appear.

    Hey, I have good news! I found out how to fix it! So, My AMPLIFi 150 went out of warranty so I decided to open up the back and have a look. According to some of the stuff I read, the SD card with the firmware on it is the culprit for the problems, so I removed the retaining glue dob and then the card, booted the amp without the SD (It gets stuck in the process), Shut it down, then replaced the SD and booted it again. I haven't had any trouble for well over a year now. I love my Amplifi now and I use it all the time, I even perform with it now because I trust it. If your Amplifi is playing up and is out of warranty, open it up. Nothing to lose, right? There are 6 main screws on the back plate and I can't remember what's on the inside. I do remember that there is a white paint-like substance on the back of the back plate that sticks to everything, so wear gloves or be careful not to lean against it. The SD slot is in the centre of the mother board if I remember correctly and has a little bit of glue to hold the card in. Good luck! Riley.

    well - an external looper adds switches accessible at the same time, but most loopers offer less switches then the helix in looper mode. OK, you have to switch between looper mode and other modes wich is'nt ideal. But what we have with the Helix would be better with a bit more time ;) I guess - it's not my priority, but to some other people it could be.

    You can't even edit properly with the PG Edit, as I said way too many limitations. You need access to the PG itself to fiddle with the foot switches and check FS status on the unit itself, and some parts of PG Edit are just badly designed and totally unpractical & PITA to use. If I had to rate so far the Go: Sound quality /features/etc: 9/10 I'd say it's near perfect for me. More effects would be nice (ex 5 or 6 'anything' effects block instead of 4), but no biggie, what it does is already plenty. Editing from the Pod Go: 4/10. A big pain the butt to set what you want to set because of the badly designed user interface and super long lists to scroll through. Just slow & not fun. Editing from the Pod Go Edit: 6/10. It works well for the simple stuff; setting parameters and turning blocks and effect on and off. But once you try to use it to set min/max values and FS with multiple values, it really, really sucks. So maybe 7.5/10 for editing easy stuff, and 3/10 for min/max and editing multiple foot switches. Plus as I said you can't even edit properly with just Pod Go Edit, you absolutely need to fiddle and check stuff (FS on/off for instance) on the Pod Go unit itself, which is stupid. lollipop = censored expletive. This. I think the multiple parameter thing is just half-assed and unpractical to use. I think we'd all be much better off forgetting they even exist and just go with snapshots. (all my above complaints go away if you're just using the 'basic' settings and have 1 on/off block bypass per FS...)

    Not sure you're responding to who...! The TLDR of the questions would be this: 0) Can you, by pressing a button or whatever from PG Edit, apply all the min or the max values so you can hear what it'll sounds like? (as if you had pushed the FS on the Pod Go, so it activates/deactivates the effects and sets the min/max values) -> answer is apparently: No. (has to be done from PG) 1) change multiple parameters white FS light to yellow: No. 2) Can you turn on/off a multiple parameter from the PG Edit. -> answer is apparently: No. (has to be done from PG) 3) Can you click somewhere in PG Edit so that you can edit the multiple parameters assiged to a FS? Answer is apparently: No. You can edit values in individual block settings, but there is no way to access the different parameter values by just clicking on a FS in PG Edit. When you click on a FS in the "Bypass/Control Window" it screws up the settings or adds a new setting you don't want, and if you click on the FSx on top of the blocks in the chain, you only have the parameters for the current block. You can remove parameters by clicking on '...' of a FS in "Bypass/Control Window", but there is apparently no way to select the FS and then edit all of its assigned the values, something which should have been a basic feature...

    I don't really get it since it already does most of it... Ex: If you disable a block in the Editor, it will disable the block on the Pod Go (PG)... And if there is a foot switch (FS) linked to the block, it will turn the FS on or off on the PG. So the Edit software already has the ability to control the FS status (on/off). They even already have the GUI for the foot switches... Just implement the likely 5 lines of code so that when you click on it, it turns it on/off, and in the GUI it goes dark... It's simple programming stuff, if their software isn't made by clowns (meaning it's badly coded and falls apart as soon as you touch any of it), should only take a couple of hours for a single programmer...! But no, you get some moronic functions instead where if you click on a FS in the GUI, it assigns new functions or resets existing functions.. It's so ridiculous... Plus not being able to turn on/off FS with multiple parameters... As i said, the min/max features seem half-assed... Badly designed, maybe rushed due to delivery date crunch, etc., but man, it's so ridiculous, it's such bad functionality... Honestly, I work in tech, in software, and the notion that you could not 'fully' edit your patches from the PG Edit seemed so ridiculous to me it's probably why I didn't even conceive the possibility in the first place. It's really so ridiculous... But hey, likely delivery dates & it's not a 'huge' feature, so I guess it was either delivery as it is now, or nothing.

    Sure, that's what you would expect, except if you try to do it like that, it doesn't work...! So I guess it's 'basically' how it works just like monopoly money is basically real money...! Or faith healing is basically chemotherapy...! lol ;) So yeah, you try it how it should logically work, and it doesn't work. So you open the manual, find the snapshot section. First it tells you how to select a snapshot, good, then you're met with this: So basically, you need to set your blocks snapshot bypasses? What's "snapshot bypass" option? What does it do? But all of the blocks are set to "snapshot bypass" checked (ON) by default, which don't really make much sense if you don't want to bypass the blocks in the snapshots... But from the manual, if you want the snapshot to bypass the blocks, you need to uncheck "snapshot bypass" (off), then the block will be excluded from the snapshot. So, "snapshot bypass" checked/on means that the snapshots will not bypass the blocks...?! Does that really make sense? Did I read it wrong? How is this so confusing?! So seems the opposite of 'bypassing'... Bypassing on/checked means it's not bypassing, and bypassing off/unchecked means it's bypassing, whatever... So, let's say SS1 sets level = 1, and SS3 sets level = 10, and SS2 has level = 5, but has the effect block "snapshot bypass" checked/on, then it will change the value of level to 5 is you recall SS2? But, if "snapshot bypass" is unchecked/off, then it will bypass the SS2 level = 5 and will not change the level value? Is that it? I just tested it, with snapshot bypass off, it changes the value of the level. And with it on, it also changes the level... So either way it doesn't seem to be bypassed... It doesn't even work. And even if I turn the effect block on/off with different snapshots, the "snapshot bypass" on/off value seems to do squat. So what does it even do? And why is this the 1st thing in the manual for snapshot configuration?! And how is it possible to be so unclear about what the feature does?! Then carrying on... I'm sorry but that's completely different than my 3 steps above...!! You have to mess with controllers, deal with the same super annoying "assignment indicators" on the left... Why can't you just function the same way you normally configure the patches?! But yeah, after reading your post and trying it out, it is much less painful than the 5 steps above tell you to do and will make you believe... Since once you hit the 'snapshots' button in the 'select controller' after pressing "assignment indicator, any other value you change is automatically saved in the snapshot. Something which is not mentioned above. In Step #5, it clearly tells you: "repeat the above steps to create snapshot assignments for additional parameters, allowing all to have your determined values recalled per snapshot!". It doesn't say that you can change other values without having to go through steps 1-4... So reading that s###, it seemed like you had to click on the assignment indicator, then click on snapshots, for every single parameter, for every single snapshot...!!! Anyway, yeah, snapshots aren't as bad as they appeared to be after trying to figure it out in the PG Edit & then reading the manual. But again, why is it so horrendously documented in the manual, and why do you even have to click on the stupid "assignment indicator" and then the snaphot in the select controller window?! Switching snapshots should just allow you to change values. Maybe a checkbox on top [ ] EDIT SNAPSHOTS on the toolbar which allows you to directly edit snapshots, without that ridiculous "it is first necessary to create a snapshot controller assignment for the parameter (other than for the Bypass)"... At least if the manual was clear and clearly explained how it works. Anyway... Extremely frustrating. All those annoyances, bricked unit during firmware update, can't press footswitch from Edit, losing min/max values when clicking on footswitch, can't edit footswitch values from the footswitch, can't turn on/off pedals from Edit, poor manual, idiosyncratic & unintuitive PG Edit for snapshots and others. All those add up and just make working with the Go a PITA. It's sad. It's a good unit for what it does; emulation. But my god... Everything around it just kinda sucks. The software, the interface... It's not the worse, it's just not good, and frustrating and annoying to deal with.

    Alright... The next day... phil_m: First of all thanks for your help it helped me understand "bypass snapshot" and the snapshots! =) (probably could not have done it without you... LOL) I'm just ranting and venting here (also trolling, just a little.. hehe) so please just take my comments with more than a grain of salt! ;) Reading the Line 6 manual or sentences like these make me believe I am dyslexic... I have no idea what that bold sentence is supposed to mean... 15 minutes fiddling with the editor, and reading doc & this comment, I think I finally understand it. So apparently, the only thing this "snapshot bypass" does is that when it is unchecked (off), when you turn on the effect block on/off in Edit, it changes the on/off state for all snapshots. But every parameter value (except on/off) are still applied. So the block is not really bypassed now is it? That's the type of silly nonsense I'm talking about when I say that it's idiosyncratic. It's ridiculous. ([edit/Correction] Ah ok... As you said, it's only "Parameters you have assigned to controller" which do change, fantastic, that way people trying to figure out how it works can get confused with this incredible logic where it's bypassed but then it's not bypassed! Wonderful! Thanks L6!) Also, if you want to bypass the on/off state of the block, shouldn't the option be on/checked instead of off/unchecked? Bypass = "A means of circumvention.". If you want to bypass something; circumvent something; go around it, the bypass option should be TURNED ON, OR CHECKED. And if you DO NOT want to bypass, then the option SHOULD BE TURNED OFF, OR UNCHECKED. Yet, in Pod Go Edit, it's the opposite. You want to bypass the state of the snapshot. But in PG Edit, "snapshot bypass" checked(on) = block on/off state not bypassed, and "snapshot bypass" unckecked(off) = block on/off state bypassed. But to go back to the "snapshot bypass" feature. In what use case would that option ever be useful? If you're in snapshot mode, you can switch between SS 1/2/3/4, but you can't really turn on or effects using the foot switches, and if you're using snapshots, which are basically used to switch from one set of parameters to others using the foot switches, I don't really see the case where you'd want to fiddle with knobs to edit parameters on the fly (or while playing LOL) and somehow manually manage one or many blocks while switching snapshots. LOL Just doesn't seem very useful, and I don't get why it's the 2nd thing (1st is how to select snapshots) in the manual, before even "how to configure snapshots"... It's really so silly, so badly explained in the manual, and the function works illogically and the checkboxes for bypass on/off are inverted, like seriously... Even with a cooler head, this sh!t's ridiculous...! GP Edit should be able to take the 4 snapshots, compare them with one another and only assign as parameters for the values which change between snapshots. I mean it's not rocket science, it's full blown software running on a PC, we're in 2020, and L6 coders can't compare 4 snapshots to find the differences and automatically assign as parameters...?! A list of snapshot/paramValue differences, iterate through each snapshots parameter and see if they're the same for the 4 snapshots, if param value is different add to list. Done! Your list of differences contain your parameters... An intern could code this in 20 minutes... lmfao! I mean sorry to sound like an lollipop, but seriously... This is ridiculous...
