    New to Helix, and not that tech savvy. When I open the Setlists, I see Factory 1,2 User 1,2,3 etc. and Templates. How do you get in these other Setlists? I get the arrow next to Factory 1, but can't navigate anywhere else with the Joystick. What am I doing wrong? BTW, I'm a visual learner, and I can't find any vispdeos of this.
  2. I've seen one guy for sure use the Scotch double sided tape to safely stick the Helix on a pedalboard. My question is, maybe I missed it, is it ok to take the feet off, and then re use the screws before taping?
  3. Good idea, but your going to have a power source right there for the Helix anyway, so just plug the G10 in there.
  4. I think I'm going to order one, and sell my rack G90!

    Using Helix Live

    Yes I think the Alto would be ok, and it's pretty inexpensive. You should just send a signal to FOH, and link the Helix volume knob to your monitor 1/4 out, then you can control your stage volume without affecting FOH
  6. OK, update on my process. I was trying to download the newest ver of Helix 1.0.6, and i had not put in ver. 1.0.4 first. Im not too good at programs, and my way around the computer, but on a whim i downloaded the older ver. and got it in. Now i may be able to update once i connect my Helix. Thanks for all the suggestions. I guess Duh is in order for me.
  7. Nothing but a msg. Asking what program do I want to use to open. I've done enough today, and I'm frustrated. I'll try deleting and start over tomorrow.
  8. Win.7 no Helix logo, just the file name on desktop. I get the L6 Updater logo on my desktop. When I try to open the updater, I get the installer prompts, when I try to open the Helix download, it can't open the program. It might be my antivirus, and I'm using G Chrome for the browser.
  9. Yea, I can't update mine either! I have the updater icon on my screen, but I can't seem to get the Helix program to work. I never get the Helix logo, and when I plug my USB from the Helix in, I get no recognition, just a chime that I plugged something in. I'm really not that good with a computer, it would be nice if L6 explained this in the owners manual. There isn't even much on line on how to do this crap. I have a Kemper, and it's always been a pain for me also, that's why I got a Helix, to simplify my life.
  10. Just got my Helix today, had about 30 minutes running thru stock presets, tweeking here and there, pretty satisfied so far. I like the clean and mid gain amps, but I can see the higher gain stuff is going to need level matching. I've relied on my ears for the KPA the last few years, but I like the idea of meter leveling. I play on a silent stage to FOH, and my sound has to be consistent. Does anyone use an IPhone app meter, if so what is a good one that is accurate and easy to use? Thanks in advance. Btw, I haven't updated my Helix yet(1.04), will do tomorrow.
  11. I've been going over this forum since I'm waiting on my "out for delivery" Helix from MF. I've been using a KPA Rack/KR for a couple of years, and although it sounds great(MBritt), I'm trying to downsize. I never looked into detail about the Helix until I got on the AX8 wait list last Nov. I reall got into both units while I waited for the Fractal. The Helix UI sold me, and I ordered the Helix, followed 2 weeks later by my AX8 invite, which I declined. Don't know if I'll sell my Kemper, but time will tell. I'm really interested in the new L6 G10 wireless also. If the Helix is what everyone says, and I'm not doubting it, the rack the G90 etc. will move on! Btw, I heard Andy(L6 factory designer/demonstrator) demo the unit at GC a couple of weeks ago, and it sounded very good thru 2 K12's. I don't think there will be much sound sacrifice at all over my Kemper, once I dial it in. Stoked, should arrive early this week.

    Helix Vs. AX8

    I passed today also,(11/1). I almost got it, to compare when I get my Helix, but I really don't want to tie up $3K. The Helix looks cool' though. I like all the scripts and colored lights.

    Helix Vs. AX8

    I got on the AX8 list last Nov. Since then, I've done quite a bit of research on Helix and AX8. I'm into simple, dial it up, and go. In this respect, I think the Helix will work best for me also. I have been using a KPA Rack/KR for the last 2 years, and I want to downsize. So 2 weeks ago I ordered an out of stock Helix. Today I got my invite for the AX8, and quite frankly, I'm not tech savvy enough to go down the Fractal "rabbit hole" of programming. Now I think I'll wait at least another 2 weeks for the Helix. UI sold me. BTW, I heard Andy(L6 rep) at a GC seminar last week, and the Helix sounded amazing thru the 2 K12's on hand.
