  1. Hello, I have a strange issue with my Line6 Helix device. Even when I turn down my "Phones" output all the way down to zero, I still hear sound coming from my right headphone. Is this a known bug? Is there a way to fix it?
  2. Hello! The title says it all - is it possible to send a signal to a USB channel from the middle of my signal chain? For example, I have a chain with a distortion pedal, a combo cab and reverb. I would like to record my playing simultaniously dry, with the dist pedal, with the combo amp and the full signal. I thought this was possible with the send/return blocks, but it seems to me now that it is not :(
  3. Hello, I am using Line6 Helix as an audio interface for my computer. I am trying to change the buffer size from my DAW(Ableton live), but when I open the ASIO Helix driver, I see no such options. Is it possible to change buffer size from the default 128 samples?
  4. Pretty much what the title says - will the new 2.81 HX Edit PC application work with Helix Floor 2.71? I'm kinda scared of the compatibility issues when updating helix devices & apps, so I wanna be sure before I connect them. The reason for this is that my helix doesn't work with 2.8 firmware or later, so I have to use the 2.71 one, and I'd like to use the new PC application (actually I've already installed it while trying to update my Helix Floor).
  5. I went back to 2.71 and everything seems to work fine. I have one question though - do I also need to downgrade my HX Edit, or can I use HX Edit 2.81 with Helix Floor 2.71?
  6. I will try it now. If it does not work, can I downgrade to a previous version that worked for me?
  7. I did the FS7 & FS8 reset (without restoring my backup presets yet) and the volume knob is still not working, and the global settings are still freezing the whole unit.
  8. I did not, since I figured I don't need the 2.80 factory presets/templates, so I skipped the step 4 from the update instructions. I proceeded to restore the presets from my 2.71 backup. Is it safe to try the FS6 & FS8 reset now?
  9. I cannot do that - when I enter the second page of global settings, the Helix freezes completely and needs to be restarted. How can I fix THAT? Is there any way I cna just go back to the update that was working?
  10. I have updated Helix Floor from 2.71 to 2.81, and the large volume knob does not work anymore. It is just 'stuck' at quite a high volume and turning it does nothing. What can I do to fix this?
  11. Isn't high cut on 5-7 khz quite harsh?
  12. Thanks for the tips, I'll definitely try those EQ cuts! And what do you think about going stereo to FRFR? And did that versatility come with a cost of reduced tone quality compared to 4CM setup? Thanks for sharing the experience! I also tend to lie somewhere in between. I also tend to use the Helix just as you do - I have 3-4 main setups which I occasionally tweak and upgrade. And the convenience is the reason that's nudging me to go towards the FRFR setup, I am just afraid of tones losing some 'edge' when played through FRFR.
  13. Thank you very much for the replies! In fact I have researched a bit about 4CM and FRFR. 4CM seems too complicated when I just want to plug in and play without too much setting up on gigs. Same goes for 4CM with both amps and speakers. On the other hand, if I have understood correctly, FRFR means going directly to powered speakers. When I tried that, I sounded kind of 'muddy', probably because I have used presets designed for headphones. I guess I will have to have a copy of all presets and modify it for playing loud?
  14. Hello, I have been using Helix for 7-8 months and have listened to myself primarily through headphones. I have also been recording stuff using Helix. Now I want to start using it in studios and gigs and I am unsure whether to plug in Helix directly into speakers or to go into the guitar amp input? I also don't know how does this affect the presets I've been using. My presets all use a combo amp + cab block, which I guess I should change if I actually use a real amp? Thanks in advance :)
  15. Hello, I have a stereo signal path that I would like to collapse to mono. When I use the 1/4 output, the signal gets collapsed automatically. However, I want the output to be set to USB and the only option I have is to make output stereo - USB 1/2, USB 3/4 etc. How can I select the output to be just USB 1, and send a collapsed mono signal through it?
