    Multiband distortion article

    Okay...I gotta come clean here. I haven't really been able to justify Native despite semi-frequent DSP depletion. I've done "loli"-all with my DAW for quite a bit now. IT HAS METERS????

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    Let the 3.0 update requests begin.

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    I'm not speculating L6 is going to do that. In fact I'd be pretty P.O.'d if they did (see what I did there?). I'm just sort of over the entitled expectations clashing with the development cycle. As others have said, I prefer a stable update over a rapid update. (oh yeah...I totally forgot about the unicorn update...)

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    If you do product dev for a living then you understand that there is no agreement binding the product to upgrades. Line6 could mothball the updates at any point and none of us could do anything about it. Likewise, they could potentially charge for feature upgrades and, again, nobody could do anything about it. Therefore the updates, aside from security or stability patches, are absolutely not part of the deal.

    Animated interactive GUI for Helix..

    Long story. Involves Ahnold and Tuna.

    Animated interactive GUI for Helix..

    The only animation I'm interested in seeing is metering and hopefully a useful tuner. (To Admins: That totally doesn't count since I struck it out).

    Roland has figured it out

    Okay, you precious, delicate, little flower. I apologize for *suggesting*, and I quote, " it is at least possible that one person is posting from..." . Does that apology match your desires? I could get you a warm bagel if that would help. Pick warmer is up to L6 though.

    Could be. I'm still holding out for the heated pick holder.

    Roland has figured it out

    Okay...color me conspiratory, but first this guy (who has a registered product) said: and then this guy (with no registered products) said: which suggests that it is at least possible that one person is posting from two profiles.

    Helix vs AXFX 3, seriously...

    Given your reactions, replies, and statements, you are absolutely trying to start trouble. In fact you're kind of being a lollipop. Going through your content, you've been a bit of a complainy-pants for quite a while. You post repetitive questions, you prod for updates, etc. You don't like tweaking for tones and get frustrated before you get results. Enjoy your Axe. All of us twisters of dials, draggers of sliders, and chasers of tones will be over here in Land o' Losers enjoying the process of creating content that we like while you download content you like. Be sure to post your clips, just like you challenge others to do.

    Sliding Rack Shelf for Helix Rack Control

    Simon beat me to the "Nice Rack"- micro-aggression. I've been on the look out for the same thing for my HD-500 (slaved in to the Helix). I want access when I'm tweaking and testing, and then want it to go back in the rack, stfu, and do what I tell it to do. Since I'm on the left side of the MIDI learning bell curve, it is actually pretty necessary to have this feature in my rack.
  14. If it is sold as new, it is new. If it is blemished or defective, it is returned just like any other new item. If you want one that has not been opened/updated, etc., then order it from your local brick and mortar because they won't update it if you tell them it must be factory sealed. SW and GC don't need your business as much. And while SW's service is awesomely awesome, GC will tell you what you want to hear and then do whatever they were going to do originally. (amendment: MF, not GC....like they're any different)

    What he said above, but here's what I do to sim feedback: Set the minimum to +12 or +24, same interval for the maximum, then use an expression pedal set to adjust mix with minimum set to zero and max set around 75%. Works pretty damn good and will do until the powers at L6 determine that we've whined an appropriate amount to put a feedback stomp sim in the fx pool.
