  1. reinstall USB drivers. Make sure u unplug it. For some reason, even if you pull out the USB cable, you have to reinstall the driver on window 7.
  2. I really don;t want to reload the previous version as it might mess up my unit. We never know. But at least the sound is not worse. :) Thanks for all of your input.
  3. Thanks guy... just in my head I guess
  4. ​Anyone found the overall sound improved in the latest update?
  5. Variax HD came out so long ago. Since than, Helix had been developed. I love my Helix. By now, they should be able to refine the models with newer cpus without increasing cost.. Moore's law? I bought the guitar twice and returned twice. The models just doesn't have the feel. Pod HD to Helix is a huge jump. If they can make such a quantum jump with the variax model, Line 6 will rule.
  6. As much as I m lookign forward to Helix updates... I wish they are coming out with new variax hardware. Sorry for jumping topic.. but can't shut my mouth.
  7. Fan issue.. I had this problem... Line 6 knows about this problem.
  8. I read few people saying 2.20 changes amp and cab sound in a better way. is that True??
  9. If people don't buy it... great... understood... For the rest of us: Thank you to all people selling top notch patches...

    Input Pad

    How do I replicate guitar pad in the effects chain? I have a les paul and strat. I find my les paul sound better with guitar pad on but sounds worse/thin with my strat. I read somewhere is the equivalent to -6db in the gain block. Is that true? No other eq adjustment. Wish there are meters inside Helix.

    Helix and L2T

    For Helix output to L2T, do you guys uses global Eq? Please share your settings. Thank you.
  14. Hi, After V2 update, tap tempo in Helix app seems to be way off. Anyone else have this problem.. Also, the tap tempo screen on the physical machine goes away very quickly. In podhd.. it stays there until inactivity for few seconds. In Helix.. its gone in less than 1 second.. anyone else have the same problem?
  15. Thanks Pob41 But its strange that you can on/off is saved to snapshot automatically while each setting is not.
  16. How can I create snapshot and change setting and save snapshot using Helix app only? I manage to change setting using the actual Helix physical controls. But when I start from scratch using the app only, it does't save settings. e.g amp drive. Although I can get snapshot to remember on/off, tempo, etc. Am I missing something?
  17. Anyone figure out how to display snapshots instead of stomps after activing "mode" I understand helix can display snapshots instead of presets or stomps or combo in default setting. But I really just want to snapshots instead stomps when I step on "mode"
  18. Its interesting that you viewed Helix was on par with Gt100.... My experiences with GT-10, GT100 and Podhd were that Helix was a lot better than others even without IR.. I wonder how other people test out so many IR files on Helix....
  19. Some Ownhammer IRs are captured with using 2 different mics at the same time.
  20. Should Helix effects and drives etc be placed between amp and cab as is real world? I see a lot of ppl place amp and cab next to each other instead.
  21. I should correct my last post. My L2T is actually lifted up to ears level. That's why I don't use monitor mode. So if someone leave the L2T on the floor, it might be better to use the monitor model as Just Startin suggested.
  22. I also have a L2T. and did try to use it with my fender deluxe amp. Here are my advice for using Helix with L2T: -Make sure u have the right able.. AES 110 ohms.... or the official line 6 link cable -Set sample rate to 96k. Line 6 informed me that setting to 96k wouldn't affect the cpu. I can hear noticeable diff changing from 44k to 96k -trim cab base and high freq. - set in PA mode. In PA mode, it doesn;t cut base when u lay it down horizontally. -L2T has very good high frequency definition so good that... kind of opposite of what u need. In many of my patches.. I turn the presence down and eq high out. Let me know.. I am learning too.
  23. Thx a lot ... I find Ownhammer has better tone and better spatial quality....
  24. SymphonicDischord, Can you confirm the pedaltain pro bag is not too tight and not pressing on the joystick and buttons. Someone using it claims he had problems with the joystick in the bag... thanks
  25. Can people share there pedal board setup and where to get them? I have a few stomp boxes and an external expression pedal. But I read since Helix is quite high, it doesn't in some of the pedal boards cases or bags...
