    Multiband distortion article

    Yeah Craig, thank you so much for this. It's great to see people contributing new ideas and ways to use this unit. Thank you again!

    I thought about that too! As well as using the merge or output blocks rather than volume pedals for testing. A few things popped out for efficiency, but the overall concept looked pretty interesting. I also wonder if he was trying to keep things as accessible as possible for anyone still learning all of the helix's capabilities I was trying to use the helix to its potential, but then it's easy to get lost in mix... and now I run 4cm with the bluguitar amp1. So I haven't really been doing anything special with my helix floor; sticking with a less is more mentality in a live setting. It seems to work better, and my helix now has at very least 312 shows/gigs, plus studio, plus practice, etc on her.. So I've definitely put her through her paces and tried all the things. -Seeing an idea like this that isn't riddled with an over abundance of effects gives me a chance to experiment with the helix again! Though pulling this off while still using the preamp of the amp1 may not be possible. Could always just feed the return with a helix pre though. Anything that doesn't require moving a wire. The pedal board case has been properly OCD'd, and those wires would take real work to remove!

    Received this email, I'm sure there's also a few here as well that have. Anyways I thought it may be of some interest! https://www.sweetwater.com/insync/double-best-line-6-helix-tone/?utm_content=article1-image&utm_source=insync&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190615-T1

    Steve Stevens using HX FX

    Who cares how it's being used... I have a helix floor. I use it 4cm and for the most part only use it for compression, teemah!, a delay block and it's midi capabilities... That doesn't make it any less of a helix floor though.

    NEW HELIX OWNER 5/16/19

    When the OP said he wanted to download pedals that got me thinking.... the way that you can download plugins for DAWS... Wouldn't it be neat if there was a multi effects pedal like the helix but some of the coding was open source/available so others could create new, 3rd party, effects for it.

    IR length discussion

    Lol... Some may find it interesting, for them they'll read, listen and contribute constructively. Some may not find it interesting or necessary, for them there's other things to read, listen and contribute to. I don't understand negative contributions to a topic one doesn't think will be beneficial to them.

    Feature request: HX Rum

    Feature request: HX Rum

    I now need an HX Aspirin. Heavy attenuation. Upon initial testing of the original HX Rum I've found it to pour a little heavy.

    Feature request: HX Rum

    I'm practicing and editing. I ran out of rum. Can we get a hardware solution to fix this? Also .... REALLY big scribble strips and perhaps rotating pixels to counter blurred vision? (Or would that enhance the effect?) I'm sure testing will be required and volunteer myself for beta testing.

    What happened? HX Edit or a coincidence?

    Well that's when I have the issue is during edit. And mine is WAY out of warranty and in no financial position, due to a few life events all happening at the same time, to replace or pay for repair. So long as I catch the issue before I go out... as a daily driver it's relatively reliable. Though the other day I had it freeze up on me for the first time since I got it. This unit was bought used from guitar center when there was a waiting list after the first batch of helix's sold out. So I would bet this is from one of the first batches of units shipped. So there's definitely no warranty service available for me.

    What happened? HX Edit or a coincidence?

    I don't know if it's a glitch because my patches are extremely old. Edits come from a change in equipment, or cleaning things up here and there. For the most part they're pretty simple: deluxe comp > teemah! > chorus > effects loop > delay > gain (boost) > volume pedal I don't know.

    What happened? HX Edit or a coincidence?

    This is extremely frustrating. Unit is up to date, drivers are up to date, hx edit is up to date, patches have been rebuilt, unit has been reset, etc... It's been done. I have this kind of stuff happen A LOT! To the point that editing patches I just sort of expect it and have to check and double check that everything works. I have my set list always saved, backed up, and then duplicated in the helix on another set list slot so that when the entire patch goes wonky I can just copy and paste it from another set list. Things like... if I move a distortion block in path A while on snapshot 1 the send/return block will be off on snapshot 3 and then suddenly off again when I switch back to snapshot 1. And this one is really fun!: I use an expression pedal to control a volume block at the VERY end of ALL patches. It's generally always at 69% (because our sound guy said that was a good number for some reason), with a minimum of 20%. It works as my just in-case $hit happens. Well... edit a patch, pack up my rig and PA, drive to gig, setup, play and suddenly in the middle of the second set the guitar is SCREAMING through the amp and PA and in ear monitors and EVERYONE is shooting me "I'm going to f*ckn kill you" looks.... I look down... hmmmm... why is my volume block OFF?!?! It's never off... this is the kinda stuff you lose work over and this is the only thing I do for a living so... kinda bothersome. Oh Its off for the same reason the send/return block is off.... I happened to move a completely different block on the same path. This stuff happens almost 100% of the time. And while I'd love to get it taken care of... the helix is at the center of my rig and I could only do this if I knew 100% that I could ship it Monday and it would be back at my door the same Thursday so I could play my gigs. At this point... I'm waiting until I can duplicate gear for backup and this will be one of those items I'll just need to own two of.
