    Footswitch replacement uk

    Hi guys, gt a helix floor with a faulty foot switch, its not always working when you stamp on it, its well out of warranty, we can get it swapped easy enough, its just getting hold o the switch. id rather just get hold of the part and replace it myself than have to send it off to a service centre, we have too many gigs in for it to be away for long anyone got a link to where we can get them in the UK Cheers

    Helix floor / Variax custom tuning glitch

    Hi guys, in our band myself and the 2nd guitarist use 2 helix floor and a USA tyler variax and a 69s respectively, on a cpl of songs we have patches set up for alternate tunings, generally a 1/2 step down or one song is a full step up. on a cpl of occasions now both units have shown the same glitch, in that when you switch patches they dont tell the variax to change tuning, one of the units changes fine maybe but the other doesnt, this has only happened 5-6 times in 2 years, BUT its 5-6 times too many, as its happened mid gig, generally crashing the song and the band having to breakdown, switching patched back and forth hasnt corrected it, ive had to turn the unit off and on again to recover it. this happened to the 2nd guitarists unit twice on Fridays gig. it was like a car crash. anyone else come across this?, its making things hard for me as the 2nd guitarist is a purist and getting him to use digital was a task, hes gonna end up ditching it if it keeps happening. is this a known fault ?, any recommendations ? we have resorted it both having a strum and making sure were both in the same pitch before we try an alt tuning song, which makes us look a bit amateur. hope someone can help

    Possibly dumb question about Helix Floor and Helix Control

    you could use a cheap midi foot controller on stage and keep the helix out of the way, https://www.andertons.co.uk/p/FCB1010/footswitches/behringer-fcb1010-midi-foot-controller?LGWCODE=FCB1010;56375;6335&gclid=CjwKCAjwxo3OBRBpEiwAS7X62T_LxT6CegFJ0Bc-B1suYFvKq1knjgtIferx4pY5pe6svw76FnrTORoCAQoQAvD_BwE use midi to control the helix. youll lose out on a lot of the helix awesome though

    Dialing in EMGs for classic rock/metal.

    i have a charvel with 81/85 in and to be honest its fantastic at metal, but theres no control to them , with the volume theyre eother on or off, you cant back them off to clean an amp up, theyre boom/nowt , theyre a great pick up for what theyre meant for, but i cant use mine for classic rock stuff, i play in a classic rock cover band, the only stuff i can use the emgs for is metallica stuff, maybe a cpl of songs that weve "rocked up" maybe if i had a little more time to make patches specific to that guitar id have better success, for face melt though its great :)

    Helix users: a simple survey

    None, the whole point of me going to Helix was to get rid of complication and have everything in one box

    Just to be sure: No Relay receiver?

    its not a software update, it would required hardware putting into the case. People paying $1200 for a pro level processor, arent using $100 entry level wireless systems, if they put the reciever in most of the potential users woudnt use it unless it was a high end receiver, then in that case they already amkes and market those, most users dont want everything in one box, the spider amps arent aimed at pro use

    Glenn Delaune

    His latest pack , the hi gain models and the boutique amp pack before ir, are another level , stuff, ive also got the artist pack, but these latest ones are better again, so much so that i cant tell the difference in his blackstar S1 patch, and the The S1 valve head ive just sold, to me it FEELS exactly the same as the head did, they clean up when theyre supposed to and snarl when theyre supposed to. well worth the money for the packs, i cant get near them with my own efforts £1250 processor and ive got 50 quid ears :)
