  1. Spaceman Effects just released a new modulated filter pedal that sounds really cool. Can any of the filter effects in Helix get close to the ramping and randomized modulated filter modes on this pedal? Would it require snapshots of multiple different filter effects?
  2. If you could post an alternate version without an amp that would be excellent. I plan on picking up an HX Effects soon. :)
  3. I realize the Helix ecosystem has grown substantially. Maybe the Line 6 folks assume this effect is more of a niche thing? Don't know.
  4. That's awesome! Is there an amp in the signal path? Curious if I could use this with an HX Effects.
  5. I'm not a DSP designer so I'm not going to make any assumptions either.
  6. I have a FreqOut pedal and I'm quite sure it's digital.
  7. Polyphonic pitch shifting has been a LONG time coming for sure. Glad to hear that it's highly likely going to be hitting the 3.0 update. As far as the Freqout/Feedbacker effect goes, there's a well-upvoted post on IdeaScale that's reached the "In Review" status. Unfortunately it's about 3+ years old at this point, which tells me Line6 doesn't seem to be all that motivated to add the effect in at all. It's a shame considering there's no way (to my knwledge) to make a digital/virtual amp feed back like playing a physical amp and cab. The FreqOut pedal is awesome and totally worth adding to a Helix rig if you have the room for it.
  8. Origin released the RevivalTREM pedal this past year. It faithfully recreates bias tremolo and overdrive sounds of a Fender Brownface amp. Does the 60s Bias Tremolo effect in the Helix respond similarly to the way this pedal does? Notice how it backs off when you dig hard into notes, and then comes back in as notes decay. It effectively gets out of the way when you're playing and really lends itself to being a tasteful, more subtle effect when you want it to be.
  9. My thought for an advantage of the HX Effects is that having the second loop would allow me to place either of the pedals inside the Helix chain vs. sticking them in the FX loop output on the way to amp’s effect loop. Are the rack units really coming down in price that much on the used market?
  10. I guess having the option of amp modeling would be nice, in case I ever get tired of the amp's 4 channels. :)
  11. I'm debating an effects-only setup for a conventional guitar amp, and I 'd want use either one with 4CM with the amp. Either would also be paired with a Mission SP1-L6H expression pedal to take advantage of the "dual pedal" design with the switch. I have a couple of delay pedals that I want to use in addition to either setup, and I want either Helix (or MC6) to be able to change presets and control functions via MIDI on the external pedals, as well as do ramping for ambient/wash effects on the pedals (Sky 5000, for instance). I want either of the Helix units to do most of the heavy lifting with effects: eq, pitch shifting, noise gate, compression, modulation, reverb, etc. when I'm not using the external pedals for their particular flavors of delays. Which would you recommend? Would 5 effective blocks with the HX stomp (after utilizing a block for 4CM) be enough in your opinion? Thoughts?
  12. +1 for the Kraken/Super Kraken sound. If someone can figure out to emulate this on a Helix, that would be amazing. I think Bea and Victory designed some of the most amazing voicings & gain structures. Yeah, I'm necrobumping this.
  13. I'm also going to add a suggestion in Ideascale for a Victory Super Kraken head. One of the neat features besides the nice clean channel that was added over the regular Kraken, along with the 100 watt power section, is the Preamp Focus. It's basically a modified Tube Screamer circuit built into the amp that can be switched onto any channel of the amp. Some folks have said they got rid of their Precision Drive pedals because it works so well as a modern metal overdrive.
  14. I'll eventually make an IdeaScale post or see if it's already been requested, but here goes anyways: I'd love to see an emulation of the Digitech FreqOut pedal. I think it's a rather underrated pedal, and goes way beyond your basic feedback squeals for 90s-style soloing. Here's Pete Thorn showing some of the more interesting things you can do with it: Being able to control this effect with a footswitch hold/release as well as the option of the expression pedal would be fantastic, since that's not something that can be done with the real pedal. Incorporating this into the Helix's signal routing flexibility would be A M A Z I N G.
  15. Too bad on the FreqOut. It would be great to incorporate something like that and control it with the expression pedal.
