  1. What more can I add except it sounds phenomenal with the L6 link..... STAGESOURCE L2t and L2m 800-watt, two-way, bi-amped design ONBOARDDIGITAL MIXER (L2T) Your self-contained live sound solution. StageSource L3t and L2t include an innovative digital mixer featuring everything you need to take control of your sound. Sweeten any vocal or instrument using the 3-band EQ with sweepable mid. Apply Smart Mod and Smart Reverb effects on each input channel to achieve studio-quality vocals on the stage. Use Line 6 acoustic guitar modeling to add depth and warmth to your acoustic guitar. The combination of effects, acoustic guitar modeling and best-in-class I/O make StageSource L3t and L2t the perfect all-in-one live sound solutions for musicians. The two-way, bi-amplified design of L2t and L2m delivers exceptionally balanced, clean and articulate reproduction of live sources and pre-recorded material. A 1†exit high-frequency compression driver is matched to a precision-engineered, 100x50-degree, constant-directivity waveguide, which delivers consistent coverage to ensure everyone in the audience enjoys the same acoustic experience. The 100-degree horizontal dispersion is wide enough for solo use yet controlled enough for arrayed pairs. The 50-degree vertical coverage reduces acoustic smear from reflective sound surfaces, as minimal energy is reflected off of ceilings and floors. ONBOARD ACOUSTIC GUITAR MODELING Get the warmest, fullest live acoustic guitar sound possible. We’ve spent years researching what makes guitarists sound great, and applied our knowledge and technology to next-generation speakers that deliver amazing tone for acoustic players. StageSource L3t and L2t are the only PAs that provide acoustic guitar body resonance modeling, giving your acoustic guitar impressive tone and body resonance Most acoustic guitars feature piezo pickups, which transfer the vibration of the strings to your PA speaker—but miss the resonance of the wooden guitar body. So you get stuck with thin, bright sound. Only StageSource features Variax® acoustic body resonance modeling, giving your acoustic guitar the impressive tone it deserves. SPEAKER MODESFOR ANY PERFORMANCE An incredibly versatile system.You can use six powerful DSP-based speaker modes to optimize the StageSource® output for a variety of performance scenarios. Onboard accelerometer and pole mount sensors automatically detect the speaker’s orientation and set the speaker mode accordingly. Speaker Modes: REFERENCE/PA Reference/PA mode is for live sound reinforcement and features a flat frequency response, a 2.2kHz crossover frequen- cy and maximum low-frequency extension. This mode is the optimal reference setting, whether your cabinet is mount- ed on a tripod, on stage or installed as part of a larger multi-component system. Reference mode is also ideal for FRFR applications—it reproduces your tone with tremendous bottom-end accuracy, mid-range clarity, and just the right amount of top-end edge. And if you have a POD® HD500X or POD HD Pro X, you’ll experience perfect tone reproduction when you plug directly into the L6 LINK™ input for digital integration and select “Studio Mode.†PLAYBACK MODE Playback mode is optimized for pre-recorded music. Functionally, Playback mode is similar to P.A. mode but includes an EQ curve that emphasizes extreme low and high frequencies, making it well-suited for playing back music from a CD or MP3 player, or for DJ applications. FLOOR MONITOR MODE Floor Monitor mode is automatically activated when the onboard accelerometer detects the unit is in a horizontal position (you can also manually override this setting). This mode provides a slight reduction in low-frequency content to counteract coupling when the speaker is placed horizontally on the stage. StageSource loudspeakers offer two built-in solutions for 30- and 60-degree monitoring angles achieved via dual integrated kickstands and a robust, retractable handle. When the speaker is in use, the kickstands and handle lock into secure, rattle-free positions. KEYBOARD MODE Keyboard Mode optimizes StageSource for use as a keyboard backline amplification system. This mode features a flat frequency response with a 3.5kHz crossover frequency, adding more relative energy to the cone and providing a warmer response that is pleasant for instruments. This mode also provides Virtual Tilt-back, which optimizes the speaker’s tuning to achieve an upward tilt to its main axis and aim the sound towards the performer. ACOUSTIC GUITAR MODE Acoustic guitar mode is optimized to provide a warm and balanced full-range amplification experience for acoustic instruments. This mode also features a 3.5kHz crossover frequency, with a custom-tailored low-frequency response to minimize “boominess†than can occur when amplifying acoustic instruments. Acoustic Guitar mode provides Virtual Tilt-Back, which optimizes the speaker’s tuning to achieve an upward tilt to its main axis and aim the sound towards the performer. StageSource offers another benefit for acoustic performers—acoustic guitar modeling. Most acoustic-electric guitars utilize a piezo pickup that captures string vibrations but typically doesn’t convey the resonance of the guitar’s body. The acoustic modeling feature, based on Line 6® Variax® technology, supplements the piezo signal with a physical model of an acoustic guitar’s natural body resonance. The combination of the 3-way loudspeaker, acoustic modeling and feedback suppression make StageSource a powerful live sound solution for acoustic musicians. ELECTRIC GUITAR MODE Electric Guitar Mode was designed to accommodate the modern guitarist who uses a multi-effects floorboard device such as the Line 6 POD, primarily running into a tube power amp using the “Power Amp†output mode. Rather than sending the signal from the guitarist’s floorboard to an amplifier and then mic’ing the amp, this mode features an overall frequency response that emulates the sound of a 212 combo amp. The dual 10†speakers play full range, with the horn adding only the smallest amount of sparkle to the sound. Users of the Line 6 POD HD500X or POD HD Pro X can plug directly into the L6 LINK input for digital integration. This mode also provides Virtual Tilt-Back, which optimizes the speaker’s tuning to achieve an upward tilt to its main axis and aim the sound towards the performer. applications http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SSL2M$749.00 http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SSL2T$849.00
  2. I fixed it with a drop of lube on the right side of the peddle axle bushing.
  3. From: http://missionengineering.com/ Wiring. Most potentiometers have three connectors; Clockwise, Counter-clockwise, and Wiper. Amazingly, there are multiple different ways these can be wired, all achieving largely the same result, which means yet more variations for expression pedals. The most common expression pedal wiring is to connect the pot to a 1/4″ stereo (TRS) instrument jack as follows: CW —— Sleeve Wiper — Tip CCW —– Ring An alternative is with the tip and the ring reversed as follows: CW —— Sleeve Wiper — Ring CCW —– Tip Yet a third way is as follows: CW —— Sleeve Wiper — Tip CCW —– Tip In this last one, the wiper and CCW are bonded together and connected to the tip and the ring is unused. This requires the use of a mono (TS) cable such as a regular guitar cable, in place of the stereo (TRS) cable used in the other two. These three are the most common that we see in expression pedals, but we keep finding more. Sometimes a dual gang potentiometer is wired in parallel to create a single pot with half the resistance. For example you may see a dual 20K Ohm potentiometer bridged into a single 10K. In this case the pedal will function the same as if it were a native 10K Ohm single pot. ..................................... OK so now we know we can do this: The third way is the Line 6 way. (after some google searches I found this out) This also alleviated the backwards operation problem and the 0 - 100 - 0 problem... which means after the conversion you don't need to use TRS cables anymore you can use TS cables. Also now with either the 12k ohm pot in the one and the 10k ohm pot in the other I get full 0% to 100% on the Helix control. here is what I did to make mine compatible so there would be no need for re configuring. the Potenteiometer on this 1 is 10k Here is before here is after... so just moving 1 wire (the green/ring) and put it together with the (red/Tip) and the (black/sleeve) stays the same. also I jumped out the back on the side pot that is for changing the "throw" of it to disable it and not doing it made it have issues when you adjusted it it would not go back to full throw. (If that makes any scents to you) My other one here is after... so just moving 1 wire (the green/ring) and put it together with the (red/Tip) and the (black/sleeve) stays the same. this model had a duel 24k pot and I soldered each connection 1,2 and 3 to 1,2 and 3 (you see it better in the picture above) making it a single 12k pot This can be done with a soldering iron with no extra solder. just heat up the green wire pull it off and put it on with the red and heat it up to connect it.
  4. it's kind of ridiculous....near the end I lean into it a little and you can hear it scrapping the side of the opening. I am just setting my foot on enough to use it in the first part.
  5. the only ones I found are in the txt file in the gillmore down load this is it: Thank you so much for your support. My Global EQ settings are as follows: Low Gain, Mid Gain and High Gain are ALL set to Zero I use the Low Cut set at 90Hz I use the High Cut set at 6.0 Hz ........................ they don't effect the L6 link
  6. I got the patches wheres the settings for the eq?
  7. Then just get a Line 6 L2M and forget about the amp and the 1 X 12 speaker you won't need it... hooked up to the L6 link the L2M sounds awesome.
  8. I had a buddy on another forum who took his back after having it 2 weeks ... before any good firmware update went out... I think he made a huge mistake, I love my Helix it is so easy to dial up tones, which I had big trouble doing on my 11 rack (depended on others presets) a +1 on both the guys before me. I have used mine mostly through 2 L2M's with the L6 link. sounds so good!!!
  9. 2.0... 2.0... 2.0.... Are we there yet?!?!?!?!?! I got to pee :o B) :rolleyes:
  10. Line 6 Helix Does It Play Nice With Valve Amps?
  11. and did you try the 4cm? A demo of the Line 6 Helix connected to a Mesa/Boogie TA-30 combo
  12. and Dude you know that chain lock on the door is pretty much useless... :lol: but seriously nice vid
  13. I like some of the Redwires and the Ownhamers and some of the other free ones I acquired on the net but the one I like best is One I made with a mix of a bunch of free ones and one a guy made from a kemper cab with the iRmix2 program hooked up to my DAW and using the looper wile mixing IR's until I got several nice ones... also I did just drag and drop in the helix app to test before that. I think the Line 6 ones are very nice too and the options of the stereo cabs to set up with two different cabs is like mixing IR's also.
  14. Reminds me of some Jeff Beck stuff...really liked it
  15. Have you tried any IR's? and did you make it to ver. I did have an issue after the first time I loaded it and tried to reload my presets, it locked up and lost connection to the comp and was dead in the water even restarting it would go past the load screen and go blank so I loaded the firmware again and had no problems since. try this IR I made with some free ones I found and mixed together. https://www.dropbox.com/s/zqe6sfla34v6fjg/GHK.wav?dl=0
  16. well I could be wrong but if you didn't do this then all your factory presets are still like on ver. 1.0.0 RESETTING HELIX GLOBALS IMPORTANT! This procedure will completely overwrite all existing presets and setlists, as well as clear all user IRs and reset all global settings! Back up your presets and IRs before proceeding! 1. Turn off Helix. 2. While holding footswitches 9 and 10 (middle two switches on the bottom row), turn on Helix. Wait for the message “Will reset Globals and restore stock Presets, Setlists and IRs…†to appear and let go. ................. in ver. 1.0.3 it dose say (optional) but heck its worth a try. I just did it before posting they sound good now and I had not done it before because I didn't want to lose my IR's and have to reload them... but it's done now and I am glad I did it. now there is a lot of usable factory presets that can be used to add your own FX to the first maybe 20 of them are just amp and speaker.
  17. Yeah I thought about using the http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Main_Intro.php the helix app also cuts off the name if it's too long... the Ownhammer ones are real long.
  18. Hey I just updated my Helix and did the factory reset to load the "new version" of the factory presets and I must said I was pleasantly surprised that they sounded 10x better than the original ones I liked well over 60% of them compared to about less than 1% the first time when I got the Helix. I am talking about "factory presets 1" Thanks Line 6 for updating them Great Job!!!
  19. hey check out this thread!!! the guy documents the same thing you said is happening to you http://line6.com/support/topic/17236-exp-toe-switch-output-killer/
  20. Thanks guys I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.
  21. I got it right 3 out of 5, 3 different times but was only guessing because it sound good on both.
  22. I was saving my IR's from the Helix app with the export function and it saved them in alphabetical order and no #'s so I have taken some screenshots to help remember there order because after the update if load up my presets if the IR's are not in the right place they won't sound the same after the factory reset. I guess I was hoping it would save the #'s too so it would be real easy to get back up and running after any firmware update or reset. What have any of you done to make it easier. I have all 128 slots filled I don't use them all but want them there when dialing up tones
