    Would you prefer that they just leave us all to twist in the wind and guess what new stuff each update contains, or any other info that might be pertinent to existing features?

    No, I would prefer that the description (or at least parts of it) opens/expands when clicked on like a proper piece of web page information should  do when you need to scroll through it to see the next update.  They can put as much info as they want in there if it is formatted properly.  In the past, you would need to go to another page to get that level of detail.

  2. Was it really necessary to basically paste a user manual into the downloads description of every Helix update that happened?  That was terrible looking to see if there was anything else in there from the last week or so (since I checked last)?  Sorry if this was mentioned already somewhere, but I needed to rant.  I have been using Line 6 since almost their inception, and I have never seen anything like that in the downloads descriptions.

  3. Should I use trs if running stereo? Or regular rs and, I hate to sound dumb but how do you dummy Jack the input? Thanks

    For a dummy jack, I normally use an 1/8" to 1/4" headphone adapter that is laying around.

  4. Success !!  The new presets that replaced my old ones suck for the most part but I've been able to identify a couple that I can work with.  thanks for the help, you guys.

    That is great news, and as for the backwards in/out it happens all the time with the uno because they are labeled to:in and to:out.

  5. The plug and play driver works fine, but it is still best to check the M-Audio website in case the device you get has an older version of the driver embedded or something.  The Uno works fine with Windows 7, as does Monkey.

  6. Please do not try using anything but the Uno.  It really is the only device that consistently works with the Vetta.  Once you have the Uno, it really is as simple as downloading/installing Monkey and letting it update your amp.  It also comes in handy for Midi dumps of patches and such.

  7. I would check current especially around the battery to see if you are getting proper power.  It is possible that something went wrong in the replacement process.  Another thing to try (if you have time)... flash and overwrite all of your presets with the factory stuff then create a bunch of brand new presets from scratch.  If one of your presets is corrupt, maybe it is causing other problems.

  8. If you watch the acoustic 700s on eBay, it is amazing to me that they are not still produced.  Every one of them gets bid up quickly unless there is something seriously wrong with it.


    As for rare Line 6 guitars, I guess I have one myself.  I have serial number 2 of the Korean production '69 (it is black).  Last I heard, #1 (red) was kept at Line 6.

  9. I disagree, but hey that's just me.  I have seen the Vetta come back from some really stupid things with an OS re-image.  Not saying not to have the battery checked if Monkey won't recognize the amp or something, but I have never heard of a battery causing the OS to not take unless it was bad enough that the image wouldn;t even try to take.

  10. 1st off, no problem.  That is not my product, BTW.  It was just the one place I knew that the instructions to the diagnostics instructions lived.  As for upgrading, it is pretty painless AS LONG AS YOU USE A MIDISPORT UNO.  No other midi devices are supported as working.  Do you have a picture of the back of your cab?  Without seeing the text, I don't want to assume how it is reading.  The Vetta is different than other amps when you plug in from multiple jacks in that it treats the left and right as separate outputs for impedance.  If set to 8 ohms for example, then both the right and the left are 8 ohm impedance.
