    Fremen's Helix presets

    Freman's new preset pack is STELLAR. Even comes with IR's. I purchased IR"s previously to this pack which I don't need to use now (could have saved that and put it towards the FREMAN pack). I had to pay in Canadian funds which put me close to $70.00 :( :( :( But worth it !

Go to Line6.com/software Under -All Products- select Helix Under -All Software select Drivers Under -All OS- make sure your operating system is selected Click GO Click GET DOWNLOAD Do not run it, just SAVE it Go to your Downloads folder and find the drivers installer - Right click on it and select 'Run As Administrator' Reboot your computer again after reinstalling the drivers Go back to Line6.com/Software to download and re-install Line 6 Updater Put your Helix into 'update mode' by holding down footswitches 6+12 while powering on, then connect to computer, Launch Updater and reinstall the flash memory.

    Problem installing Helix editor 2.01

    I had issues with 2.01 also. Opened support ticket. Support contacted me with the following...

    2.01 USB Connectivity

    Installed 2.01 "successfully". Had the editor opened. shut down Helix for a while. Turned back on, Helix is no longer recognized by L6 software. Tried everything to re-establish connectivity.... to no avail. Even tried rolling back to previous FW. Almost like my Helix USB is bricked OR it's a a software glitch. I've owned a Kemper and an Amplifire with no problems updating software....Also owned two HD's and a Firehawk and had problems with L6 software on all of them. My son repairs electronics (mostly computers) for a living. His comment to me tonight was that L6 software is glitchy.

    2.01 USB Connectivity

    Tech support emailed these instructions which were concise and may help others. My issue is the USB port on Helix. It is going back to SW. Disconnect all of your Line 6 gear and close down all Line 6 programs. Go to Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features > Line 6 Uninstaller After you run the Line 6 Uninstaller, reboot your computer. Go to Line6.com/software Under -All Products- select Helix Under -All Software select Drivers Under -All OS- make sure your operating system is selected Click GO Click GET DOWNLOAD Do not run it, just SAVE it Go to your Downloads folder and find the drivers installer - Right click on it and select 'Run As Administrator' Reboot your computer again after reinstalling the drivers Go back to Line6.com/Software to download and re-install Line 6 Updater Put your Helix into 'update mode' by holding down footswitches 6+12 while powering on, then connect to computer, Launch Updater and reinstall the flash memory.

    2.01 USB Connectivity

    The new updater and editor are loaded into the same download are they not? They extract together and load separt shortcuts onto desktop. MAybe the 9/10 switch portion gets missed by some ?

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Moving From HD500 To Firehawk

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Moving From HD500 To Firehawk

    What I miss most about the HD500X is the ability to assign and switch multiple FX with one foot switch ... changing from a lead style delay/verb to a rhythm one. Yes I can create a different patch but being able to change with one footswitch was awesome. I find the Firehawk a bit warmer than the HD.
  23. Have you opened a support ticket ? I just got my VX but haven't recorded with it yet. Sounds like I better wait ...
