  1. I had that problem. I sent it to L6 and had a faulty ”board” replaced. I called support, opened a ticket and was emailed a free shipping label. The round trip took about 3 weeks.

    Helix FAQ

    Sorry, another one, Can you get soft synths(audio) from a DAW into/thru it over the USB?
  3. Good question. I wouldn't be able to reliably play out with my HD500 because of the foot switches, without having it repaired first.

    how about an input gain parameter (and meter to check the level)?

    Helix FAQ

    Is there a "pad" switch or function to use with active pick ups?
  6. Wasn't it said that only one of the SHARC's is for the amp modeling? I've never tried out a L2t or L3t, but now I'm eager to try one with the Helix...

    Helix FAQ

    Let me ask this differently. Has the Helix been played thru a DT25/50...If so, does it sound great? (possibly better than with other amps) What is the ideal amp you would play it through? Thank You, btw!

    Helix FAQ

    Is there a recommended/optimized guitar amp to use the Helix with? If there are no "pre" models (ala hd500) or topology specific patches, will there be recommendations how best to use it with the DT 25/50?
  10. I was thinking tones were just topologies,eq's, cabs,ect...blah blah...and that the new models were just renamed variations of what was there. I have the hd500 and will be considering the metal pack when available. I love My XTLives metal tones (Cornford, Big Botttom, ect). I got the email from Line6 about the 2.6 update and packs and started wondering if it was necessary if the tones could already be achieved. Just curious really and maybe cheap... I have no clue what up and down voting is and will never care. I rarely come here. This a classic example of why. Forum have hostility I avoid...
  11. It's all just a combination of settings we already have, isn't it?
  12. I have an XTLive that i was using with an Atomic Amp. Since my Atomic gave up the ghost, I've been plugging it in to the FX Return of the DT25 I have. I use the whole patches, including Amp models and setting the DT25 to Topology1, but it certainly works to disable the Amp model in the XTLive and just use FX. I have my HD500 hooked up too... I have a Voodoo Labs Amp Selector, so I can run either,or,both. I'm also still using the Atomic cab as a second extension. I love some of the Amp Models in my XTLive as much as any in the HD500...
  13. Dang, this is a great update/feature! Of course the XTLive had it years ago. God do I wish I had some of those badass amp models from the XTLive in the HD500(Metal Pack, ect…) Happy New Year! (note to self…more time playing/songwriting/recording…less time tweaking…)
  14. I don't think you need to monitor the POD's 1/4in outputs. Create your stereo Audio track, plug in your POD USB. It will be your Input device, but the Duet should be your Output device(Preferences>Audio). Use full amp models, Studio direct mode and Speaker emulations. You should be good to go, except for lots of tweaking. I have recorded the 1/4in outputs instead of USB. But I have a DT25 and prefer to mic that setup...
