  1. I thought I read a topic concerning this yet I cannot find it so .. Since the last update I have this issue with my Volume Pedal block. After moving between a few presets regardless of the number of snapshots my volume pedal block changes on its own in the following manner; At full down it will be anything but 100. It may be 94 or 97 or even 92. In addition when full up it will be anything but zero. It may be 4 or 7 or 8. The fix is, of course, to reboot though not the best approach when segue from song to song in groups of 3 or 4 is the demand of the group. Any thoughts and has this been discussed yet I just haven't stumbled upon the correct search string? Thanks for any thoughts or ideas Dennis
  2. Well, all, I did it I purchased Helix Native and Reaper yesterday to see if I can manage to normalize my Helix output signal as well as improve on my tones before I start recording my ideas. I just wanted to say the Helix Native Forum has already helped me with the "authorized device" issue for the install. I will stick to the Helix Native forum for those questions and this forum for my Helix Floor questions. Just thought I'd let you know I am learning to DAW crawl! So far it has been quite rewarding but the real test will be our next performance this coming Saturday Dennis
  3. Just wanted to say hello. First I want to thank the members for posting in this searchable database. I already solved one issue. I have never used a DAW before so I am really treading new territory. I purchased reaper & Helix Native yesterday for many reasons. My main one is to see if I can normalize all levels with respect to my Helix patches. The second is to learn DAW and start recording my ideas. I built my recent system; Windows 10 Enterprise AMD Ryzen 7 3700X MSI MPG X570 MB Corsair Vengeance Ram (32GB) Samsung 980 Pro Gen4 500GB Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 580 Reaper 6.29 x64 I have a couple 1TB SSD internal drives and several 8TB external for off loading data. My question is ... does anyone see any problems with my setup so far? I will be replacing the memory with 64GB next month and the Ryzen 9 5950X once the supply chain improves or I find some special. I will be purchasing an audio interface as well but for now I am using my Helix. Let me know if I am missing anything. Thanks in advance Just Plain Dennis
  4. I am glad I found this topic before I freaked out too much. I had the same problem after deciding to purchase Reaper and Helix Native yesterday. I have reached my limit of authorized devices which I didn't realize. I deauthorized all the older units that I had retired or had crashed. Now everything is working as expected. Thank you UnTimid and datacommando for the solution and thread for further troubleshooting. Dennis

    Setlist swaps?

    The Metal-i-Kid ... great to know I am not alone. I have been doing this for a few and find it a lot easier as long as the lead vocalist doesn't forget the list order. I have a FX ID next to the song which lets me reuse certain presets that multiple snapshots may allow for use in more than one song. And that way I can keep up with the vocalist's re-list from time to time. Of course I still have adjust my setlist FS per setlist from time to time. Just Plain Dennis
  6. Datacammando, Now I have something else to add to my tool bag. Thanks. I did see the video when it came out but failed to realize the full impact of that one feature. Dennis
  7. Station Alert! This may be my fault. Remember back in some distant post to how I was saying I always backup then reset to factory settings before upgrading then reset again after upgrading, restore from backup, then manually update my restored patches to the latest firmware version again so it can do it for me automatically upon the next reboot, and finally manually update just because; intentional long sentence to prove my neurosis. Maybe I passed my neurosis over to the engineers? Now, back to your regularly scheduled debate of speedos versus fig leaf!
  8. You may want to consider this item; EM CUSTOM. Loopers, Midi controllers, interfaces ... Dennis PS: Read about this item and even reach out to the developers if you have any questions. The drop down before purchase tells which amp you want to use it for.
  9. I had saved for a few months several years ago to purchase the HD500X. I had the FloorPod Plus and the band I am in wanted to give the sound person more control and less mis matched stage balance. So I go and purchase the HD500X about three weeks before the Helix come out. While I had no problem with HD500X I realized I should jump in and get the Helix since Guitar Center said they'd give me my full refund for purchase on the HD500X. I had made about 15 patches that I liked for the HD500X but I still returned it and purchased the Helix. At first I had some issues due to the overwhelming amount of ability the Helix has. I am very glad I made the switch. I mean, yes I like the color and the clarity of the visual display panel is clear the HX Edit program has been a boon for me It is much easier to create and then tweak the patches I make It is very intuitive of I have to make changes during practice or a show as I work directly with the sound engineers The updates are quite impressive whether slight bug fix or a complete additions of FX blocks The amazing helping hands I have received in this forum or on YouTube or even when running into someone else using the Helix is not only impressive, it is quite valuable to the added information I can glean as well as share I should say the number one thing is that the Line 6 support team is responsive and quite collaborative but that is regardless of the product you may own The way it works as a stand alone or with a valve amp or SS amp is quite useful though more and more with the F/W upgrades I am using is as my on stage rig. There is more I can say however most of the others have said it or touched upon it. In the end it is your choice though I can't think of a better choice to upgrade to. Dennis

    HX Edit 3.01

    I am fairly certain he does. However, I was going to do the same thing so ... he beat me to it! ;-)
  12. I thought I'd ask this question since I see many OP threads on issues and or questions concerning the Helix FX family that have been addressed in detail in existing threads with several nice solutions. When I did a search on "use search" I found a thread in which stevekc had directed someone to use search in 2015. I have used the feature improperly and properly in the past. I see that the Line 6 crew have added some suggestions on how to use it once you start to use the search feature itself. I find it useful if and when I figure out the phrase and or phrasing to use to get a result. Not sure if this is a great question to ask but I thought I'd put it our here that it works well for me and saves me time in waiting for replies concerning issues and or needs I have. Have others found the search feature helpful or a bother? Dennis
  13. In regards to the initial question by the Guest OP. The polyphonic feature has already helped me dial in a clean and extremely satisfying polyphonic setting for three of my patches. I have found that the new FX models & features as they are added seem to let me become more curious in regards to the "what if?" code in my DNA. YMMV Dennis
