  1. I am trying update Helix Floor from 2.80 to 2.81. The Updater screen shows no devices to update. I know that the Helix is connected, because Helix Edit recognizes it. Suggestions? Thank you.
  2. The point is moot for me, the OP-I returned the Variax. It wasn’t for me. Consequently, I have a new Line 6 VDI cable for sale.
  3. Could someone be kind enough to go through the steps of using the expression pedal to transition between two snapshots? Thank you.
  4. I was looking for something more rugged than the Line 6 VDI. When I owned an AXE FX II, I had an an ethercon cable custom made to go to the foot controller. Thanks for the clarification.
  5. Hello, all: I have been using the Helix for awhile, and I just bought a JTV69HSS. My intention is to start using the Variax for gigging. I have the Helix set up so that the top switches control patch change, and the bottom control snapshots. I would like a patch that starts with an acoustic model, goes into a crunchy Strat chorus and then goes to a Les Paul solo. I’d like to increase the volume and delay for the solo with one switch. How is this done? Thank you.
  6. Hello, all: I have a 69HSS on the way. I have a question about alternate tunings. Can I use the Workbench software to create capoed tunings? For example, there are certain songs where our vocalist needs to change the key, and I may use a capo on the first or second fret. Can I change key with the tuning knob? Thank you.
  7. Rvroberts, I said path, not patch. MusicLaw, I understand what you are saying. Thank you. However, I am inquiring as to the use of the Editor to create the additional paths.
  8. A fellow forumite answered my question about using the editor to save variations of a patch as snapshots-terrific! Now a new question: I understand that each path can only have, at most, 8 units. I find that I sometimes need to add additional units. For example, I want to add a wah after a noisegate. How do I add the additional units using the editor? Thank you.
  9. I have a Mac. I made a change, hit OPTION, nothing. I tried again, this time holding down OPTION while clicking SAVE. Nothing.
  10. Thanks, guys. One would think that it could be done with the editor.
  11. Hello, all: I need some help. I have a great crunch patch. I am using the computer editor. I select Snapshot 2, rename it to Lead and make adjustments on the amp+cab for a lead tone. I re-select the Snapshot 1, as that is what I want to load when I select the preset. Now, both Snapshots 1 and 2 have the same increased volume and EQ adjustments that I dedicated to Snapshot 2. Obviously, I don't fully grasp the construction and saving of a snapshot. Thank you in advance for advice.
  12. Hello, all: Has anyone created a clavinet patch? I need it for Stevie Wonder's Superstition. Thanks.
  13. Well, now. I went to my Applications folder, opened the Line 6 folder and soft the Updater icon. Whaddya know, it worked like a charm. I know I came across as a newbie, but I have been using and performing with digital gear for years, and this is the only software that stumps me. Thank you to all who lended a hand.
  14. I hold down the two buttons, turn the unit on, and it does not load new software. Ugh! I checked the version of the editor, and it does say 2.20. What will the software not load and update the Helix?
  15. Okay. Once, I open the Helix.pkg and download the software, and it successfully installs, what do I do next? Thank you very much for your time.
  16. Phil, Of course, that link allowed me to download an entirely different software package - Helix2.20.dmg The package opens, completes installation and a new Helix icon appears on my desktop. When I click on the new icon, it opens the installer box again (Helix.pkg) . It does not load the new editor. Why?
