  1. I  have the Helix LT. I want my on board pedal to be the volume pedal (which it currently is). I want my expression pedal to be a wah. I have the volume set to a minimum of 50% with heel down, and want the wah to be off in heel down. I want the wah to activate when it’s moved and I want it to turn off when it’s not moving.

    Does anyone have a link showing how to do this? Every time I try it messes up my volume pedal settings. 

  2. Clint, you gave up on S-Gear? I went with Helix too. But would like Amplifier as a rehearsal and backup option. Its a little expensive for that though. I've been using Bias FX for rehearsal, but its not that inspiring. I suspect I'll give whatever Mike at produces, but Helix meets my needs pretty well, especially since I also use a Variax Standard.

    No way! S-Gear is great. I also like Amplitube, and Revalver, but I like having a hardware device, and live rig. My Helix and a pair of JBL eon612s will be the live rig.

  3. I have a DT25 which I'm very happy with, but I'm interested in how well the HD500X would sound through this amp using the full models with cabs or maybe with an external IR loader such as the Two-Notes CAB.

    I'm expecting a lot of Helix users to give this a try as well.

    I haven't always been thrilled with FRFR, but this amp could be what I've been waiting for.

    Have any of you tried this with the HD500X or Helix? Have you been able to compare with other FRFR solutions?


  4. Okay I've been testing the tube pre with my HD500X this morning. At 50% input and 50% output it was much lower in volume, so I turned it up until equal with bypassed volume. I used Mautodynamiceq to do some freq analysis and found in the FX loop the tube pre added some low end and raised the mids. Post mixer it added lows and cut the mids. To my ear the HD500X sounds better without it, but it does add something. You'll like it or you won't.

    Next up...testing with S-Gear.

  5. Ordered a HD500X today :) ,despite the crappy sound from the dealer Dem(including the Helix) :(

    Congrats! You have bought a very capable modeler. If you want to save a few bucks...I had very good luck with the Alto TS112a's which are $299 new. I owned a pair of QSC K12's and an Atomic CLR, and I would buy the Alto's again if I was going the FRFR route again. I'm very happy with my DT25. The perfect hybrid of modeling and tube.

  6. I use HD edit and Sonar all the time. I always start sonar first and then HD edit. Sonar will ask if I want to use the POD for audio or midi...I say no and it works fine. You can only have one usb soundcard going at a time (I use a Presonus 44VSL) so Sonar thinks your trying to change. I believe I've also started HD Edit before Sonar without problems before. I would check in preferences (In Sonar) and see which soundcard it's trying to use.

  7. Last time I worked with it...I thought it sounded best with the pre amp versions with cabs on. It's certainly a flexible rig. There doesn't seem to be a "right way" of doing things. I love the DT amps. Best thing Line 6 has ever made.

  8. So far I'm a fan of using the cab modeling "turn on" when using my HD500X with the DT25. It does sound much better. I'm not sure about using the full pre-amp models yet. At loud volumes it sounds better to me without them and in LVM the amp applies them anyway...if I understand that right. Either way I can't get my direct patches and DT patches to match each other. I have to have a setlist for each. No biggie.

  9. I agree. A high cut in the cab edit section would solve it all. Maybe the reason I've never noticed the coloring is I have the mid-focus on from the beginning when creating a patch. At least the HD500 provides the tools needed in some form, but it takes up an effects block...which is why I'm sitting here now looking at effects to go into the loop. The M9 would be nice, but it's expensive. I'm thinking about the Zoom MS-cdr which could handle chorus, delay and reverb. I used to have it and it had some nice effects.

  10. hmmm. Even with the knobs turned down all the way? Just to clarify it colors the sound by just being in the chain turned on? I'll re-check this when I'm back playing with it again. The other option would be to use the deep cab edit to High pass the lows and a different EQ to roll off the highs.
