  1. All you need is a USB cable, the kind that you use for a printer; https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Printer-Type-Cable-Male/dp/B00BCWALHM/ref=sxin_2_pb?gclid=CjwKCAjwyqTqBRAyEiwA8K_4O-k59zZvhUhdmw4B-wwIAwl6cbzuA-crqgbZXKTuhtahZSTpwQbyXBoCWssQAvD_BwE&hvadid=241654966052&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9013534&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t1&hvqmt=e&hvrand=4751488328063868660&hvtargid=kwd-15504310&hydadcr=26614_9892224&keywords=usb+cable&pd_rd_i=B00BCWALHM&pd_rd_r=06f65a80-f0b1-4391-832b-9467dd539b64&pd_rd_w=Dt7Kb&pd_rd_wg=JKHDm&pf_rd_p=9ef0c97a-254b-445c-822b-c948e2d94ddd&pf_rd_r=WPGRBJV3VJFX8ZJHTVRP&qid=1565090551&s=gateway Plug this into Spider V and the other end into your computer. Make sure that your OS has the correct ASIO driver installed or else your DAW will never see the amp. You can get the right driver from here: http://line6.com/software/
  2. Hi, Can you try installing the latest Driver and seeing if that helps. I attached a screenshot. I do know that if i don't install the driver on my Mac I am forced to use at 48kHz only. So maybe installing the driver will help your setup.
  3. Thanks guys! and thanks to Line 6. Helix is just a lot of fun. Every time i plug into it I just smile at the depth of tone!
  4. Awesome playing and the tones are amazing, sit right in the mix ;)
  5. https://soundcloud.com/macman70/dl-switch-cover I am using the Helix version 2.12.0, stock patch 12B 'Plexi Monster' on this cover. It needed no tweaking for my rhythm versus lead guitars. All guitars you hear on this are from the Helix and guitar used was a Ibanez RG1XXV. All I did in the mix stage was add some Soundtoys Echoboy to the lead guitar tracks. Quite incredible how responsive this unit is. The mileage that I got from this 1 stock preset is incredible, kudos to Line 6! Now I need to take some time out and do my Helix Firmware update, I am definitely saving that 'Plexi Monster preset.

    Claptons Soldano Tones

    THank you very much for this. Always love that lead tone on 'Pretending' and you got that and his other tones dialed in beautifully. Great job!
  7. That be, Right and wrong; Joe Jackson. The first 4 notes of this riff are the same as a Zeppelin song, are they not. Do y'all hear that.... Your tone is spot on to the original, nice work!
  8. I also use these with the Helix and I have zero complaints. Nice headphones! http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/sony-mdr-7506-headphones?source=3WWRWXGB&gclid=CJv4gKez3dACFQYKaQodVKEAKA&kwid=42373006x39951744167x166534700
  9. @ QuickDraw, jaminjimlp & arislaf Thank you guys, glad you like it. I will have more patches in the works soon. I still need to delve into IR's, so far I am just having way too much fun with the Helix and it's built in sounds and capabilities.
  10. Wow, great sounding patch Scott !!
  11. Thank you very much! Enjoy the Helix patch and the Backing Track.
  12. Same for me, Logic Pro X, super easy :)
  13. Here is a free Helix patch and a free Backing Track I made for Deep Purple's Perfect Strangers. The patch uses Snapshots. I denote in the video which snapshots were used. No IR's used just Helix stock cabs on this one. Dropbox link to patch and BT in the YouTube video description: https://youtu.be/a0LnXVy9WWU This is my first real recording project with the Helix.
  14. I have owned my Helix a month now. I was a little hesitant on spending the money on it but, I can happily say it is a game changer. I sold my Pod HD bean within a week of owning the Helix. I do lot of home recording and the Helix is a thing of beauty. For me it responds like a real amp and I find that makes me want to play more. I have had no issues recording into Logic Pro X with the Helix. Sure, the Pod HD was good, but I can tell you that I do not miss it and I have not looked back. Patch creation on the Helix is very easy and intuitive. If you enjoy tone building and tweaking then I think the Helix is the way to go, it really is a nice unit. I am glad I purchased it and the good news is I feel no need to look at other gear, so for me (at least till now) it is a GAS remedy.
