    LED Brightness when using Midi CC

    Hey All, I have set up a patch to control a live looping app on my iPad via MIDI. It uses MIDI CC messages to trigger functions in the app. All works great there! However, I have the LEDs color coded to functions so i can identify them quickly, but the LEDs are always in the DIM state unless I am stomping on the switch. Is there any way to set the LEDs to always be lit fully? It would be very handy to be able to do. Thanks!

    Pedals to supplement your Helix

    What effects pedals are you still keeping?

    Dont doubt it, I put together a mini grab and go board with a few pedals and sold most of the rest. Kept my POG2. Looking for a couple other pedals to supplement with. Mostly for things that would use a lot of DSP or simply couldnt be done with the helix.

    Pedals to supplement your Helix

    Hey Everyone, I love my helix and especially love that it gave me some options to supplement it with external pedals. I couldnt live without my POG2. Ive gotten the helix to approximate a Micro POG but at the cost of a lot of DSP. Id rather have the DSP for other things at the core of my tone. I want to know a few things about how you are using the helix with external pedals I want to know: What pedals are you using with the helix and how are you using them? What external pedals could you not live without? If you could have any pedal alongside your helix, what would it be? I want to know a few things.

    New FW on the way

    From DI on TGP: Available later today: Helix Firmware v1.06.0 Release Notes Helix v1.06.0 is a firmware update that includes new models, features, fixes, stability improvements, and optimizations. It is highly recommended that all Helix users perform this update! It is also recommended that you back up your current presets by using the Helix application to create a preset bundle, allowing you to install new presets as part of the update process. The easiest way to perform the update process is by installing the latest version of Line 6 Updater. Once you've connected Helix to your computer via its USB port (hubs are not supported), Line 6 Updater will recognize the unit and take you through the update process. Both theHelix application and Line 6 Updater may be downloaded here: http://line6.com/software/ New Amp Models Matchstick Ch1, based on* Channel 1 of the MatchlessTM DC30 Matchstick Ch2, based on* Channel 2 of the MatchlessTM DC30 Matchstick Jump, based on* jumping Channels 1 and 2 of the MatchlessTM DC30 New Effects Models Distortion > Teemah!

New Features Swap Footswitch Assignments—This feature makes organizing Stomp footswitch mode a lot easier, especially when footswitches have multiple-assigned items or custom labels/LED ring colors. Touch and hold (but don’t press) any two stomp mode footswitches for one second. A dialog box appears, asking if you want to swap all assignments. Press Knob 6 (OK) When touch-holding a footswitch to invoke Quick Footswitch Assign (or touch holding two footswitches to swap their assignments), the dialog panel automatically closes after four seconds Bug Fixes In rare cases, assigning a parameter to a footswitch may briefly display the parameter’s value above Knob 1 (Parameter) on the Controller Assign page —FIXED After returning to a preset while the looper is active, the Looper block and/or half-speed footswitch’s LED may not properly reflect its state(s) —FIXED In some cases, a Command Center > CC Toggle footswitch’s LED may not properly reflect its state —FIXED Helix may fail to respond when receiving a huge string of MIDI PC messages while on the Setlist view —FIXED After customizing the name of an auto-assigned EXP 1 block (Wah or Pitch Wham), the Volume Pedal may become unassigned —FIXED General stability improvements Other minor bug fixes and optimizations Other Improvements When selecting banks by pressing FS1 (BANK UP) or FS7 (BANK DOWN), FS6 now appears as CANCEL, letting you dismiss bank queue without changing footswitch modes Expression Pedal 2 and 3 can now adjust values in Pedal Edit mode Factory presets leveled Additional improvements made to the factory preset bundle Resetting Helix Globals / Loading the Newest Factory Presets 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! Turn off Helix. 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. Known Issues Minor pops and clicks may be present when Helix is streaming audio from a Mac® running OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) Minor pops and clicks may be present when Helix is streaming audio from an iOS® device running iOS 9.1 or 9.2 with Apple® Camera Kit Importing a Helix bundle while streaming audio over USB may cause the Helix application to disconnect

    New FW on the way

    Thursday can't get here fast enough!
  11. I ended up going with zzounds. I caught them just at the right time. I cancelled my other order.
  12. I feel you. I didn't cancel the other until I had confirmation that FedEx had the package in their possession. I wasn't taking any chances. You may have just been bumped up one spot with my cancellation.
  13. They still had a few this morning. I ordered one and cancelled my other order oncei got the shipping confirmation.

    Helix Models you wish they would add...

    I agree. But i cant imagine the DSP overhead that the POG2 has. I think it would eat up a LOT of DSP. Maybe we could get away with a microPOG in it. I would really like to see a lot more dist/OD pedals (Tim, Timmy, Plimsoul, Keeley Red Dirt, etc.) As well as some auto-wah/envelope filter options (Keeley neutrino sticks out in my mind here) I would also love to see some other boutique amps. (Victory or Dumble anyone?) And maybe bring the FRFR back? I used that in my acoustic patches on my HD500X. Maybe its not needed in the helix (ill find out when mine gets here) EDIT: Added the part about FRFR

    Is this normal or should I return the Helix?

    Does it still hum if you are using a very low gain amp. Even my best humbucker guitars still have some hum when im not touching the strings on anything but a very clean amp. A lot of it has to to with the other electric interference around you. My office, for example, has 3 computers, 5 monitors, and plenty of other sound gear. In a small 10x12 room, that is a LOT of potential interference. If i turn off everything but my mac and its monitors (as i do when recording) a large part of the hum goes away. If you are using high gain amps, hum is expected without a noise gate.
