  1. A brand new JTV-59 is currently less than £700 in the following stores: Rich Tone, PMT, Andertons, Gear4Music, GAK, Hot Rox and Muziker How much were you expecting to get as PX? Used gear will not sell if it is more than New retail price and the store has to make some margin. Last two days Ebay Sold listings are £475 and £425 and then Ebay takes a cut from that, so an offer for £500 is a pretty good price in the current UK market.
  2. It does work - exactly as you are trying it - but you have to align the ferrule correctly for it to catch. Simple answer is that when you push the string end into the hole you should rotate the string until the end catches - and then you need to maintain a little tension so it doesn't pop out again. It is probably easier to thread the other end through the tuner before putting the bridge end in place then pull the string tight and lock the tuner. Once you know the trick it is a very easy and quick method that takes a couple of seconds per string.

    Quick Q regarding l2t/l3t

    It is the mix out from all inputs, so yes it includes the EQ, Chorus, Guitar Body effects if you are using the side mixer.

    Nylon String IR?

    The memory capacity issue wouldn't be a problem if they allowed users to create a custom firmware including a user selected subset from a wider range of guitar models - using workbench. I don't need all of the existing guitar options but I would like an expanded range of for example pickups and some body types. If I could swap out what I don't want for some extras that I do use then it would extend the life of the platform substantially. But so would Next Gen JTV upgrade boards - to replace the existing ones without having to replace the core guitar or the controls.
  5. Still using mine for gigs where we do PA and/or want to record the whole band playing live. It still does what it did when I bought it same as any hardware mixer from that time or before would do until the hardware fails.

    Powercab or powercab plus

    I agree as do many others. As we have had a Helix firmware release since Powercab came out there is either something else getting in the way or they are trying not to create the impression that it is a Helix only cab. I would like a Powercab, but I am waiting to see what happens.

    Powercab or powercab plus

    I can’ see anyway for the Powercab 112 to do this; it has no connectivity options. The Powercab 112 Plus already supports this for Helix and any other modeller that has MIDI.
  8. This is the place, (not a Line 6 site); you do need to register, but the admins are on here. https://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?board=138.0 It is pointed to by the Sticky thread:

    New forum layout suuuucks

    The forum is "Powered by Invision Community" so it is not really Line 6 software, and I very much doubt that anybody involved in Helix Native or any device embedded software has anything to do with the forum as they are completely different specialties. But I do agree; forgetting who I am all the time - often in the middle of a browsing session, but then remembering again after F5 refreshing a random number of times isn't good, and that Sign In process that dumps you out at the main Site rather than the forum page you were looking at is really bad.

    frfr speakers

    There are loads of options and numerous discussions, and everybody’s opinions are different depending on circumstances and expectations. Probably the best prosumer product (not cheap consumer and not professional price) is the Atomic CLR; a major factor for it is the coaxial speaker configuration which you don’t get in general PA speakers intended for longer distance listening. This can be important if using the speaker as a stage monitor as within 6’ is too close for the woofer and tweeter to merge for such speakers. There are other coaxial speakers if you search but not many. One option that has to be recommended here if you want the speaker for use with Helix is the new Powercab which combines a guitar cab look with flat (guitar range) response and the option to simulate a range of guitar speakers. For Helix use unless you have PA requirements it should be tried before the L series PA speakers.
  11. You only need a Send... no reason to return the guitar signal back from the vocal processor, but you might take the vocal signal into a different return/path to add synchronised effects and simplify control.
  12. VDI is a digital connection with no loss of quality from guitar to effects unit. 1/4” Jack is analogue so there are two additional conversions and you introduce the cable which is never perfect; from an electronic circuit perspective it is an resistive capacitive filter and it will lose high frequencies... the longer the cable the higher the loss. VDI I believe includes a model of a high quality guitar lead with a small amount of loss, but any long or lower quality guitar lead will cut the high end frequencies and potentially add some noise. Use whatever sounds best to you, an EQ with a bit of high end cut will give you the same sort of effect and hum can be dialled in the amp models in helix if you want some of that. Personally the control from the floor unit is invaluable to me so I use VDI all the time.

    Using Helix for Vocals(?)

    It is switchable in the settings - perhaps you switched it off at some point before testing

    Helix Floor does have phantom on XLR input!
  15. The actual story is the Line 6 have formed the core of Yamaha Guitar Group... and get Ampeg on board too. and Variax was being pushed at NAMM; see the Stevic demo video. The possible move is a new generation of Variax modelling tech as there are hints of two or three new products being launched
