  1. Hi all, Finally picked up a Helix, and loving it so far! I'm using it with a valve amp (JVM410HJS) so just using it for FX and also MIDI changes on the amp. I've also set it in 4CM with the send1 and return 1 being used for this. I've noticed that having the delay, reverb and phaser after the return block - as opposed to in the 'send / return' section - makes them sound a lot better. In fact, adding any FX to the send / return section doesn't have a lot of impact! Is that normal? Just seems that it's not actually in the FX loop of the amp then! And how can I assign wah to EXP1 and Volume to EXP2 and select them? Also, been using Command Center to send a MIDI CC change to my amp - however, I need to send more than one CC change request on a single button press - is this possible? (FYI, it's to change to Master Volume 2, FX Loop on, Gate on and Channel change to OD2 RED. Know I can do it with a preset, but I'd rather find another way!). Thanks all!
  2. Andertons just told me it 'should' be with them on Monday. Probably just going to cancel the pre-order now, TBH - it's changed dates 3 times now so I don't hold any faith!
  3. Spot on. Some might say I'm being spoilt or something, but the fact is - I (we?) were told the 25th September, and now assured the 9th October. Certainly made me think twice about pre-ordering something like this again, and the lack of info from Line 6 and Yamaha really isn't filling me with consumer confidence. I'm actually about 50-50 now as to whether or not it's worth it after all. D'oh!
  4. Yeah, we'll see. I ordered it based on the 25th September date as I need it for a Euro tour later this month. If it's not in Friday think I need to cancel the pre-order and just go back to running a small board... :(
  5. Just received this email from Andertons: "Thank you for your email. The Helix unit you have ordered is due to arrive around 09/10 and we shall contact you once this unit is in store and ready for collection. We shall also contact you if its arrival is delayed at all." Fingers crossed.......
  6. Think it's safe to say the majority of us will not get them until the end of October.... :(
  7. Sounds like we have the exact same thoughts - I love the fact i can setup a preset for an emergency and just plug into the PA if the worst case happens! Now just need for the actual units to bloody arrive.....!
  8. Yeah, same reasons here as well. Already sold the G System. And hopefully L6 will support the Helix a lot more than TC did with the G System....!
  9. Andertons claim the 9th October.... (for first batch, anyway)

    Helix FAQ

    Quick question - and probably a dumb one, but hey-ho - how exactly do you set up the outputs and inputs for a 4CM going into the amp's FX loop? I'm guessing it's two 'streams' on the Helix - one that has the guitar in and mono output as 'front of amp' (so things like tuner and wah are there), and a second 'stream' that has the send and return ina nd out going into teh amp FX loop, with all the other stuff in there such as delay and reverb....?
  11. Yeah, I know :) It's not so much the delay that's annoyed me - more that I took the day off to collect it, and when I spoke to them on the 23rd it was all good still. Never mind though - as long as it's here for my gig in the 16th, it's all good!
  12. Just called up Andertons to find out what was going on with my pre-order, and been told that the delivery has been delayed until the 9th October :( So in case any of you guys have a pre-order at Andertons, you won't be getting it for another couple of weeks :( Bit of a waste of a day off....!

    Helix FAQ

    Hi all, Please can someone confirm the tuner accuracy? Also, will balanced cables in 4CM to the amp work (and is it recommended)? And finally - the day I get it (the 25th, hopefully!) I have to spend the evening in London, so I'd like to test it out. If I plug my guitar in, can I just use the headphone out to listen to the amp simulators etc. (I'm assuming yes!)? Thanks.

    Helix FAQ

    Can anyone chime in on the tuner accuracy please, and also if we using TRS cables for 4CM will affect the tone (even if passed via a hum eliminator that translates TRS to TS)?
  15. Swann Flight are making a Helix-specific hard case. It'll be big enough for just the Helix itself, though.

    Helix FAQ

    Swann Flight are creating a custom flightcase for it as well.
  18. Looks like it's slipped at Andertons in the UK as well - now showing end of October :( EDIT: Just had confirmation this is for the second batch - first batch still due 25th September!

    Helix FAQ

    One other question - will you need TRS or TS cables when using the 4 cable method...?

    Helix FAQ

    Is there any news about the accuracy of the Helix's tuner? I have a TC Polytune Noir which is accurate to 0.5 cent - what's the Helix's accuracy...?

    Helix FAQ

    This is sweet as. So, would it be possible in one bank, to have certain footswitches engage guitar FX, and others to engage vocal FX? And this leads on to the ultimate question.... is there a TalkBox-style setting...? :D
  22. One other question - will the 4CM need TS or TRS cables from the floor version...?
