  1. I am a late adopter from 2.71. This update went smoothly from Win 10...what a relief!
  2. You might be able to nab a Line 6 Stagesource L2t on the used market at a reasonable price. Make sure it does not have the "fan rattle" issue or that it has been resolved. This speaker moves a lot of air for any bass or guitar. It is very versatile, easy to transport, and durable. It mates with the Helix beautifully using the L6 Link or straight into the mixer for an acoustic guitar.
  3. Folks seem to be loving the Powercab plus. For me, I love my L2t and L2m combo at home. It doea it all--electric, acoustic, bass, and stereo. It leaves me not wanting for anything more.
  4. I am using the Focusrite iTrack Dock into the Auria DAW on the iPad Pro. Auria is inexpensive and powerful.
  5. I am not seduced by the Powercabs. I love my L2t and L2m. They work so well with the Helix for my applications.
  6. Yes...they are working again, Thanks!
  7. Once again, the pages devoted to extending this warranty are not functioning.
  8. I am registered, I am about to have my second year of free warranty expire and I am looking to extend the service for an additional year for $99. The Line 6 pages to extend the service are not functioning.
  9. In trying to extend my Heix warranty for 1 additional year, I am completely stumped in locating the page that allows the purchase of this service. Anyone else having this trouble.
  10. Thanks so much for the patch link. I have a couple of piezo equipped PRS guitars and I have a set of patches that I use to run the mag pups into the guitar input and the piezo into the aux jack. I have patches for clean, crunch, and lead tones that can be combined with the piezo in this setup. The Helix offers incredivle versatility in this way.
  11. With my warranty expiring in May, I was considering the wisdom of extending the warranty for one year at the $99 charge. I am wondering how others are thinking about this option.
  12. +1 on this response. I really love the Soldano and Archon clean amps with a bit of an edge to the Soldano.
  13. I am all for the idea of constructing some sort of shade for the Helix. even if it doesn't look wonderful. Something like a modified small umbrella or two would be superior to letting it bake in the sun. And, you might be able to see the display better, too.
  14. I, too, have had stellar customer service experiences with Line 6. In fact, they replaced an expensive piece of hardware with a new piece after the original was damaged in shipping out to Calabasas.
  15. Sorry for the late reply. That does not sound right to me. I think the button should respond immediately. Have you taken steps to open a support ticket?
  16. Oh, yeah...love the Soldano amps including the clean channel. Same deal with the Archons.
  17. I stopped holding my breath and sold my DT50 212. After doing the A/B thing numerous times between the Dream Rig and the Helix-->FRFR, I always preferred the latter. I loved the DT50, but I have no regrets. I have no way of knowing, but my senses that Line 6 is moving on from the DT amps. I think the Firehawk, the Spider V series with full range speakers, andthe absence of any new tube amp introductions for many years give evidence to this. Both the sound and the portability of the Helix-->FRFR rig have helped me join Line 6 in moving on. The gentleman who purchased my DT50 is delighted with the amp. I do think it is a great standalone amp for many.
  18. Well, I sold the DT50 over the weekend. No regrets and the buyer was very happy. I am staunchly in the FRFR camp now.
  19. Originally. I grabbed a DT50 212 back in 2013. Mated along with the HD 500, I was thrilled with this dream rig. In fact, I understand that Steve Howe of Yes was using the same gear. However, since upgrading to the Helix and a Stagesource L2t, my dream rig has been sitting fallow. The ease, portability, and sound of the new stuff is more pleasing for me . And I don't have to lug the DT50. I am definitely hanging on to the HD500 as a backup to the Helix. But, I am conflicted about letting the DT50 go. I fear that Line 6 will come up with an integration of the Helix and DT amps as soon as I sell the DT50. And, I have loved that amp. It just has been sitting quietly for the past year. Any thoughts?
  20. Congratulations! You are going to love that combination for its sound and simplicity. \m/
  21. Loving a pole-mounted L2t. I actually got a pristine, used L2t from MF. Subsequently, I bought a heavy duty metal pole from MF on sale for $25. I really like the simplicity of the setup, the sound, and the and the L6 Link. Still waiting for integration with my DT50 via the L6 Link, however. Now, I am slightly hacked off that Line 6 is offering the Helix backpack for free with the purchase of the Helix during March. I suppose they are seeking an edge over their competition with Fractal and, now, Headrush. Where was the freebie a year ago when I purchased the Helix?
  22. Peter has the right idea, from my perspective. Through the L2t, the Helix is brighter, more lively, and louder in electric guitar mode. If, however, you are using it as a PA speaker, running to a PA, or using acoustic patches with a piezo equipped electric guitar, then PA reference mode does the trick.

    Helix and L2T

    I use the digital L6 Link cable (AES/EBU) and this negates global EQ settings, is an easy setup, and produces great sound with the L2t.
