  1. Yep - thank you, I'm updated! Oddly, all of my custom presets remained. I had backed them up just in case, but the update didn't delete them....
  2. Ah - OK. Thank you for the tip - much appreciated!
  3. Hi all, I have Helix Native. I saved a complete backup bundle, as well as backing up a User Setlist with some of my personal presets. I've updated HX Edit to 2.80. When I open Line 6 Updater (1.17) and log into my Line 6 account, a message is displayed, saying "Select Device To update - but there is no mention of the instance of Helix Native that is in my DAW (Cakewalk). Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi all, Someone stepped on my pedalboard last night, and broke the swivel joint on one of my antennas for my G50 receiver. 2 questions: 1) I have some antennas from a XD-V wireless that don't use. Are they compatible with the G50, since they are both in the 2.4G range? 2) Where could I buy a replacement antenna for the G50? I didn't see them offered in the Line 6 store... Thank you in advance!
  5. HI all, I know you can control Reason's transport controls with a FBV Express - I have downloaded the FBV Control software, I have loaded the Propellerhead Reason control template, I have enabled the FBV in Reason, but it doesn't work. I am also using a KB37 as my external sound card, and I sometimes use the transport controls on the KB37 for Reason. Do I need to disable the KB37 as a control surface in Reason before I can use the FBV to do this? Perhaps Reason will only allow one or the other. I'm OK disabling the KB37 as a control surface when I want to use the FBV - I just don't want that to interfere with the KB37 function as a soundcard. Sorry - on the road without my gear, so I'm asking for advice so I can experiment when I get home. I did some searches in this forum and online, but nothing turned up. If anyone has run into a similar issue, I'd appreciate any tips. Thanks in advance!
  6. I was using the Dobro sound on a song and noticed the high E was a lot lower in volume. Went into WB and dropped the other ones....seems much better. Ah, computer guitars. Tweak tweak tweak. I pretty much use my JTV59 for recording at home and that's about it. Live I grab a Tele or a Strat. The JTV59 went wonky on me at one too many gigs, so now she's in the south forty....lol
  7. Has anyone from Line 6 actually chimed in on this new feature? I understand this is probably not the forum for that, but I'm curious.
  8. If you connect a L3 to the DT via L6 Link, I think it's going to route all your stereo FX/Dual Amp panning stuff to stereo between the DT and the L3. If you aren't using any stereo FX or dual amps with stereo panning, then I would think you're going to hear a mono signal from the HD500 in both units equally. You might even be able to create dual signal paths in your HD500 - one for electric guitar, one for acoustic guitar - and use the mixer inside the HD to decide to NOT have acoustic guitar coming out of the DT... Very interesting concept. I've never tried any of this, so who knows?
  9. So far so good. Seems to have a sweeter high end, and not quite as brittle. I don't usually use the DT by itself - I usually use it via L6 Link with an HD500. Sometimes when I'm kicking around the studio I'll plug into it instead of hooking up the whole shootin' match. I use it by itself to practice pedal steel. I've found as of late that I'm having some difficulty getting enough clean headroom for the steel - I just ordered a new set of JJ EL84's, so we'll see what happens. Also, FYI - I found that the transformer had come loose just a tad, so when I tightened it up snug against the chassis it was no longer up against the magnet of the V30, so all is good. Seems like a direct retrofit from the G12H-90. Also, imagine my delight when the reset fixed the issue I was having. I should know by now with digital stuff - "try a hard reset." Followed quickly by "you DID back up your presets, right?"
  10. Hey all - UPDATE: I did a reset on the DT by holding the Voicing and Pentode/Triode switches together during power-up. It worked. Everything is fine. Mebbe something got goofy during the chassis removal...who knows. FYI
  11. So I swapped out my stock speaker for a Vintage 30. VERY tight fit - I had to mod (bend) the speaker frame a tiny bit so the amp chassis would fit back it (transformer was RIGHT against the frame). But now when I'm on Ch A, the British Crunch voicing is very thin and anemic. If I set the amp to Ch B with the same settings it's fine. All of the other voicings seem to be fine - only Voicing II on Ch. A. :-( Ring any bells with you folks? Could this be a tube issue? I put the exact same EL84's right back in the amp. Sounds like I'll have to open a support ticket....will the speaker swap void the warranty?
  12. Hmm...yes, tone IS a subjective matter, but I'm interested in any and all opinions. Thanks for far, guys! STPLE - I assume the Peavey had a stock Black Widow or similar speaker?
  13. Hi all, has anyone tried this, and if so, I'm curious abut the results/opinions. I have a Celestion Vintage 30 that I'm thinking about putting my DT25...

    Ah...but if you turn the output level of the POD down using the Master, does turning up the Master on the DT still drive the tubes? Doesn't reducing the output of the POD end up reducing how hard the tubes are getting hit, or does cranking the Master on the DT compensate, albeit at a lower dB level? You mentioned you tried this already, with good results - so I'm really encouraged...
