    Relay G10 USB input poor design

    Hello all, I have been offering a power supply socket upgrade service in the UK for the past year or so. It consists of adding a standard "Boss" type power socket directly below the existing mini USB socket, and installing a small voltage regulator board inside the receiver which drops the standard 9 volt pedal supply voltage to the 5 volts the receiver requires. If the USB socket was working before the mod, it will still work after it, but I am not including repair to the USB socket if it is broken, the sockets are poor quality, and do not tolerate the solder iron heating well enough ) I have modified around 14 G10s this way, all were successful. Drop me aline if you'd like to know more. I am only doing this for UK customers at the moment, but could consider shipping overseas repairs if the demand is sufficient. Update, the mod is essentially identical to that posted by a2dconverterguy earlier in this thread, but available in the UK. Steve Coates www.redtapemusic.biz
  2. Very interesting topic, has anyone actually measured whether the input impedance of the Helix changes under these circumstances ? This will obviously have a very significant effect on tone if you're using high impedance hum buckers, and should have very little impact if you're using active pickups. Im not sure if we are talking about an "actual" change in the input impedance of the Helix, or a modelled change in the software, in which case it will be a change in the frequency response and dynamics of the signal, regardless of what kind of pickups you are using?
