    Thanks Nylander88. Reinstalled HX Edit from download page. That enabled my Edit to communicate with server on update tab. Download successful. 2.91. \m/

    I can't seem to update to 2.90. I'm running 2.81 and when I hit the check for updates tab on HX edit, after I put in my PW, I get a not able to connect with server response. I'm on line at the time. Any suggestions? Thanks for any replies.

    Can't Backup!

    Thanks. I installed 2.8.1 into updater, and easily backed up . I then started the 2.8.1 download and it froze at 50%. I powered off Helix, closed then opened updater, then ran update again and it installed without a hitch.

    Can't Backup!

    Thanks, this sounds time consuming. But I'll try.

    Can't Backup!

    I'm trying to Backup 2.7.1 before I install 2.8.1. When I'm in HX Edit and hit the Backup tab, it doesn't complete the b/u, and I get a retry msg. Of Timeout waiting for response (code 8212). I've updated the Updater and have tried a dozen times. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, BTW running Windows 7.
  6. I have a 72 Goldtop Deluxe, and I couldn't leave mine alone either. Put in HB's Grover tuners. Didn't even keep the mini's. Like you said, it's too heavy for 4 sets now days, and my Suhr Strat, RW Tele get the most play thru the Helix. I have a first gen Variax I'm going to try, as I just got the cable today.
  7. Thanks for the answers friends. I've had my Flextone and the Flrbrd.on consignment at a music store for 6 mo this now. Not much interest. It was always a good sounding and pretty easy to use setup, but new stuff rules I guess in the modeling world.
  8. Will my old Long Floorboard used with my FlextoneII/Plus work with a Spider V? I haven't read the whole forum yet. Thanks for any replies.
  9. Some of that James Brown Funk was played on Gibson guitars with humbuckers.
  10. Got my G10 yesterday, charged it to a full charge, hooked it up, and so far so good. I took my G90 out of my rack, and replaced it with my Furhman power source. The G10 will get the stage test next week with 2 weeks of 5 niters. I don't roam too far, and if I don't get interference the G90 will go for sale.
  11. Tech21 RK5 in my gig bag to back up my KPA,and Helix, but I've never had to use it. And spare strings, extra guitar, and enough cables, and batteries for the wireless stuff.
  12. Some of the factory profiles are pretty good. I used a tweeked Deluxe Reverb patch for a year, before I bought the Michael Britt profiles. The MBritt is what makes the sounds of the KPA "tough" to beat, AFAIC.
  13. I still have my KPA Rack and KR, as those tones are pretty thought to beat, and I haven't got there with my Helix yet. I hope I can get close, because like you said basically, less stuff to haul! Btw, I have 3 booteeks that have been dust collectors for 2 years si cel I got my KPA.
