    Another multieffects unit to challenge helix?

    Somebody better check the code, lol. Box is too cramped for me, but its a good-looking device. I don't think I can buy anything from a company that so blatantly steals DSP code that they don't even take the original designer signature out.

    What will Line 6 drop at Winter NAMM 2019?

    *fingers crossed* A big boy (something that works for, uh, less dynamic genres) Powercab with dual drivers, metering in the Helix signal chain, and an update for the stomp that frees it up to maximize DSP use over display coherency so I can get a backup rig without buying an LT.

    HX Stomp: Are 6 blocks enough? Not really

    For me it's not about having a long signal chain for one sound, but having the fast switching between heavy gain/clean and trails for ambient FX without a gap in the patches. I was checking one out for a backup board, but I'd be either having to use actual patch switching with a noticeable gap, or cut out stuff that's important in either clean or drive tones to use snapshots, on top of compromising which FX I'm using in current presets. There is something to be said about giving yourself a box to work in and maximizing what you can do inside it, for sure, but I've already defined the box I'm working in.

    Would You Accept a "New" Helix in An Opened, Unsealed Box??

    You keep mocking my intelligence yet here we are, two pages into a thread that didn't even need to exist since you have the time post about it that could have spent opening the box and answering your own questions, and in which you still haven't grasped the "Quote" function that other users have taken advantage of multiple times in this thread.

    Ok, at this point I'm just replying because you're reacting so hilariously. I'm quite a few years from being a teenager, but I'm also not an idiot, so the irony of this is quite wonderful.

    Aw, grumpy people are so cute on the internet.

    I believe the lesson would be to verify your concerns before you start a conversation in a user forum, but apparently not.

    Whoa, hey, settle down grampa, no need to go all Gran Torino in here. My generation isn't the one that lollipop-lollipoped the economy and ruined the job market ;-). I assumed at some point in the last few days you would have opened the thing up to verify your concerns, but I guess it would be presumptuous of me to think in your advanced age and obviously diminished mental capacity that would be thing.

    So wait...you came here and started the thread before you even unboxed the item? *facepalm*

    Interesting Problem With Sound Cutting Out

    Yep, global setting should fix that. When I first got it I thought that was the expected behavior, so I turned it down, powered on the unit, and got BLASTED with feedback from a patch that had been saved with the volume full up and no noise gates. Fun times.

    Sans Amp for bass?

    Have you tried the Obsidian? It's a model of the DarkGlass B7K preamp pedal.

    Exactly, this isn't TGP ;)

    2x12 Stereo Powercab

    I'm in the same boat. The PC is loud enough for most situations, but I play in two metal bands with hard-hitting drummers and there's no way it keeps up in places without solid PA support, which is what I need for on-stage amplification. I don't even necessarily require stereo, as stereo in a single 2x12 cab is a pretty minimal effect, but definitely something louder that can carry a room over a loud drummer like a standard amp and 2x12 are capable of would be nice. Right now I'm considering the Spider V240 with a "Bypass" preset. The advantage there is that for a few hundred bucks extra I can get a foot controller for it and have a backup rig should my Helix lollipop the bed.

    If it's Sweetwater or GC then he'll be waiting till they restock, because if they're opened for FW updates, they're probably ALL opened.

    Can Helix be used as a serious Audio Interface?

    Wasn't he trying to record the backing track and Helix into the camera? Setting the Helix as the mic will ONLY record the guitar input, not the track being played through the Helix. I believe he is looking for mixer-type software that will route any input (USB or analog) to the same output (camera), which I don't think is possible with Helix by itself.
