  1. Ext amp doesn't work probably after updating
     
    When switching ext amp with snapshots, the switch on the Helix (set in command center) switches status, but nothing's happening on the Amp.

    It worked perfectly in 2.30 

     

    but not in 2.50

  2. Will there be a standalone version? Or only as plugins?

    Stand alone would be awesome for home creation of patches to bring to researsel for the hardware.

     

    Also... will the software tell you when the hardware version would be out of processing power?

    (Assuming your computer has more power than the hardware.)


  3. Anybody know what lacquer L6 use on the jtv's, especially the blood red import jtv89f.

    From my collection of 30+ guitars, this one is worst sinner in regards to giving me a severe allergic reaction on my right forearm, where it's in contact with the guitar body... Most of the guitars makes me react over longer times of play, but with this one, my forearm is burning red after 5 minutes of play...

    I'm considering a refinish and want to make sure I don't use the same lacquer.


  4. The trick is that you need to monitor three inputs (Multi [Variax+Guitar], Variax Mags, and FOH Return), mix them all to one output, but mix only two of them to another output. Therefore, the IEM feed needs its own path, no matter what. If you didn't need separate processing for the Variax Mags, you could route Path 1A (with or without parallel processing) to 2A and use 2B for your IEM feed. So it looks like you either get one parallel path with IEM feed or two serial paths with IEM feeds. Again, there might be a workaround involving Send/Return patching. Will have to take another look later.

     

     

     

     

    Yep. Each path gets only one split, but you sort of get a third split between Paths 1 and 2 (by routing 1A and/or 1B to both 2A and 2B).

     

    Maybe I'm over complicating things... Maybe I could just use headphones out set to multi, split it with a y cable and use a small mixer like the Yamaha mg06 to mix the helix with the aux from FOH and send te output to to IEM. What do you say guys???


  5. Okay, it still works. Instead, set 1A's Input block to Multi (which includes both Variax and your wireless Electric via the Guitar In jack), and 2A's Input block to Variax Mags.

     

    The separate output blocks for your IEM feed need to be fed by a path, which precludes parallel processing on said path.

     

    I'll keep thinking about it. Maybe there's a way...

    Ok, cool thanks.

     

    But the IEM only needs to be on on Path, right? Making it possible to run dual amp and or parallel FX on the other path?

    ... Side question.... Can You, on the same main path e.g. Path 1 use f.ex. block  2 and 3 on path 1B for dual amp, Go back to 1 A for a few serial blocks, then do a new split to 1B to run a delay in parallel with a reverb?  


  6.  

    Hmm... If I understand what you want to do, yeah, it looks doable. If your Variax and Guitar use the same processing blocks, you can do it with only two of the four paths:

    1. Set the input block to Multi.
    2. Split the signal right before the outputs.
    3. Move the merge block down to create two outputs (one set to Multi, which includes both XLR and 1/4", the other set to Send 3/4).
    4. Place a Return 4 block on Path 1B, right before the Output > Send 3/4 block.

    If you need separate processing for your Variax and Guitar, you'll need all four paths:

    1. After performing Steps 1-4 above, duplicate Paths 1A and 1B to 2A and 2B.
    2. Set Path 1A's Input block to Variax and Path 2A's Input block to Guitar.

     

    I think I get it...

     

    I need separate  processing for Variax and Variax Mags. The Electric through wireless is for jumping into the audience for showoff, and will not be used at the same time as the Variax. But the four path idea will be the same I guess...

    Will I be able to run dual amps or fx in parallel or is the B paths "locked" by the Return 4 merge block?

    Shall the Return 4 merge block be present en both patch 1 and 2?


  7. Mono is not an option😎

    I don't use regular guitar along with variax. And it shares path with the variax. But I do use the variax modeling together with the variax mags for blending acoustic and electric. So mags gets its own path. (In those preset mags would probably go to 1a and variax to 2a)


  8. Possible?

    Maybe digital igloo?

     

    Will this possible:

    Variax to variax input.

    Wireless to guitar input.

    Pedal in loop 1

    Aux monitor send from FOH to wedge parallel out to R4

    Main out L+R : all guitars (variax and/or variax mags or wireless) out to FOH

    Unbalanced out L+R: all guitars (variax and/or variax mags or wireless) out to FRFR monitors

    S3+S4 (L+R): all guitars + AUX monitor from FOH to IEM.

     

    Anybody have an idea if this will be possible and how it will be setup in the Helix and how much "path-space" I will "waste"?

  12. Rack / controller vs board.

    What do get for the extra money for the rack/controller combo that we won't get with board except from the form factor. With Pod HD(x) we got additional I/O and if I remember correctly, +48 for the mic. Oh the Helix we seems to loose a pedal and switch and $500.

    Please tell me I missed something here.
