  1. Gotta admit, if there's not a forthcoming amp model called "atomic wedgie" I'm gonna be a little disappointed.
  2. annd we're up and running. Thanks again rsvette12!!!
  3. ahh, I found where to login! (duh, had to enlarge the Edit window to maximum) Turns out I was logged in. Now I just need to authorize my computer apparently...??
  4. thanks rsvette12.. I know it's probably right in front of my face, but I can't see where in Helix Edit I would sign in??
  5. I purchased (on the Line 6 Marketplace) some presets with IR's but when I try to import them into my Helix LT, I get a message "HX Edit was unable import this preset (or, this IR) because the required license was not found.The following product packs are available from the Marketplace. *64145". I logged in to my Line 6 account and can see the purchase of the presets/IR's, along with an activation code, but I can't import any of the presets. I have updated Helix Edit to the most recent version, as well as my Helix LT, and nothing works to get these presets and IR's loaded. Any help?
  6. Problem appears to be SOLVED! (in fairness, the "problem" was I didn't RTFM.) I HAD been powering the base unit with a 9V power adapter (yes, of sufficient power for the G70 base unit) However, per the manual, the preferable way to power the unit is via the 5V USB port. Powering the unit via the USB ONLY eliminated the hum. Kudos to deadlocked who got me looking in the right direction!
  7. thanks again deadlocked. I too thought it would be odd if the USB ports didn't share the grounding of the overall strip. I'll try reversing the Helix Stomp power supply to see if that makes a difference. If that doesn't work, I'll at least test it with a USB going to a grounded PC. (and if you're still in MN, hope you're adversely affected by that deep freeze!)
  8. well, that didn't help. I don't know if the USB ports are connected to the overall grounding of the power strip, but plugging in the Helix (via USB) to the USB port on the power strip made the hum even worse.
  9. super helpful, thanks again deadlocked! Looking at Amazon, I see some grounded power strips that also provide USB power... that might work.
  10. awesome, thanks deadlocked! Glad to know it isn't just me, and great information! Since I'm not the handiest with electronics, I'll check the specs/power on the adapter and see if there's an aftermarket adapter that's grounded that supplies the correct power.
  11. My travel rig is a Helix Stomp into a Tech 21 Power Engine - sounds great. However, I recently added a Line 6 G70 wireless unit to the mix, and when I plug the Stomp and G70 power adapters into the same conditioned power strip, or even the same circuit in the room, I get a very loud hum/buzz through the Power Engine. I then disconnected the G70 and tried using a Ditto looper (powered by a One-Spot adapter) and got the same loud hum/buzz. However, using a Helix LT with the G70 or Ditto works/sounds fine, so the issue seems to be with the Helix power supply. Any ideas?
  12. When I'm using the looper, I'd really like some sort of visual display showing how much time is left on the looper. With the Ditto and it's 5 minutes of looping time, I don't need to think about how much time is left, but with the Helix (LT and Stomp) there's only 60 seconds available (max) and it'd be nice as I'm recording a loop to see how much time I have left so I know how much of a phrase or idea I can put down.
  13. awesome, thank you! I'll give that a shot tonight. If I do that, then how can I access the tuner?
  14. When in stomp mode, is there any way to assign a block to that third button (which is currently the tap/tuner button)? I'd like to run with a distortion block, chorus block, and looper block in stomp mode, but unless I can re-assign that third button, it ain't happening.
