    Attach Helix to pedalboard with feet still on

    3M Dual Lock. I’ve used it for years. Way better than Velcro. might be tall enough to use with feet. they have lots of different hold firmness styles and they do vary height between them. something to consider.

    Helix VS Pod HD500X

    I bought my HD500 when I was thrust into the "quiet stage" way of thinking. I was kicking and screaming the whole way, having to ditch my tube amps and analog pedals. I had a Rockin tone going, but after a year or so, with the HD500, I started liking my tone again. I would probably still be rocking the HD, but one of the foot switches went bad, and I sent it to Line 6 for repair. A year later the same button went out. I decided to invest in the Helix. I've had it for about a couple years now, and really digging it... The Helix has great tone. Better than the HD tone to my ears, and the interface has went farther towards my pedalboard layout. On one hand, it went farther towards great tone and effects, and at the same time going farther back towards the feel of an analog pedalboard. It just blossomed goodness in my world...

    Fasten Helix to pedal board: a solution.

    I use 3M Dual Lock for any pedal fastening purpose. They have 2 or 3 different densities for firm to incredibly firm attachment. http://www.nghobbies.com/cart/images/products/3MDUAL_BL.JPG

    Fender Amps "Magic 6" settings?

    It's how I run my '65 Twin Reverb.... Haven't tried it on the Helix Twin Model yet...

    Just updated to Helix floor 2.20 and a problem...

    Found the solution... Press "Menu" button by the preset knob. Press "Global Settings" knob. Turn "Snapshot Mode Switches" knob to "Manual Return" Press the "Home" button. Save the preset.
  6. Just updated to Helix floor 2.20 and updated globals waited until all presets rebuild, etc... Then I imported my set lists back to the helix. now when I go to a preset the push both bank switches to get to snapshots, all my snapshot scribble strips are blinking. when I choose a snapshot footswitch it makes the snapshot change and goes back to preset scribble strips instead of staying on that preset and showing the snapshot scribble strips. Any way to get it back?

    Backorder Blues....

    OK, I'll suck it up, and wait. I know it's worth it, and I really dig the latest Line 6 offerings.. BTW, the L6 bag got here last night, looks heavy enough duty, but is less rigid than I thought. Definitely a heavy bag that I can throw my cables, ear pieces, and iPad into, replacing two bags I schlep currently.

    Backorder Blues....

    Thanks for the replies.. I wasn't aware they had a supply problem earlier too... I've noticed an increase in the last few days, of folks getting their new units. (jones'ing hard) I should get the helix bag today.. Thanks for the ray of sunshine phil-m, I'm hoping my HD500 graduation will occur soon!

    Backorder Blues....

    In an earlier post, I mentioned pulling the trigger on a new Helix.... Which I found was on backorder.... ...Which was set back another couple of weeks. ...And was set back an additional couple of weeks. ...And the most recent set back was another couple of weeks, due available the 30th (in 1 week) Morbid curiosity made me look at the MF Helix offering page today. The date has changed to 7/04/16, and I haven't received the dreaded extended backorder email yet. Do you think they have given up on sending out the bad news emails, or might it be that my Helix made it there??? I'm hoping not more delays. Kinda looking at a couple other multi-fx models in that price range...

    Helix alternative bag solution

    Helix alternative bag solution

    I have the Line 6 backpack on order, but if I were to be looking for a cheaper alternative, I would buy another SKB like the one Fulcrum linked to. I have one for my HD500 I've been using for a couple 3 years now, and it's great. The attached pocket came unstitched after a year of over-stuffing it. LOL! Still using it and loving it, until my Helix makes it in from Siberia,.JK...

    Like, eh, WTF

    I got a Gator case for my HD500 and the EP foam was awesome. I had to put Egg-Crate foam in the top and bottom so the board wouldn't rattle side to side, but has rocked for a couple years now. One note, I was stuffing cables and lots of crap in the side bag when it finally let go of the main case, but I don't miss it. Looking forward to the L6 Backpack Bag...

    Haven't touched this in two years since the HD500.... I'm hoping the Helix will continue the trend.. :)
