    2.81 firmware available now

    Hi I successfully updated my Helix LT to 2.81 today. Took less than 30 minutes (actually don't know as I had coffee and ice-cream outside in the sun and it was ready when I came back). I made the 2.80-upgrade when it came out, also that went without any problems. And, this has been my experience from my start with Line6-products starting 1998 with the POD (upgraded to 2.0 but that was a eprom-change :-) via POD XT and a POD HD Pro. Also have a Variax 500 (2003) that I still own and use. Never had a problem except a hardware problem on my POD HD, solved quickly by Line6 and their support. Never a software or update problem, feel lucky there. Thanks Line 6 for a grate work and another great update – Fullerton, Grammatico, Revv, KOT/POT and Dhyana Drive are all favorites now. So are Tilt and Shelf… Also, the hat off for everyone in this forum and at TGP who spend so much time helping to solve problems for those in trouble, with an endless patience. During all years I have been here I have seen an endless amount of knowledge pass through. An invaluable support that built my own knowledge and also proactively prevented me from running into problems, simply gave me more time to play music ... say this partly because you who put down this time should feel that there is a deep gratitude for your work. This update has been a challenge for quite a variety of reasons and makes this forum important. It also says that those who are looking for support here should not take it for granted, most show their respect/appreciation, but unfortunately there are those who either listen or show traces of gratitude for having access to this benefit... Thanks you all for helping us out when we need it. Hope the message goes through correct, English is not my native language, and don’t want to start a war :-) //Per

    2.81 firmware available now

    Rd2rk, found a bug in your code. Looking forward to an update IF you found 2.80 and 2.81 not meet your demand THEN revert to 2.71 OR go on vacation :-) /Per

    Hi New version in Helix so a new version of my Cheat Sheet, Line6 Helix Model Summary, for the one who like it on a printed sheet or as a file on your PC/MAC. Have added the new models in 2.80 firmware. They are in the order of appearance on the unite. Same format as before. Download it from my Dropbox here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/d6jyu6p3148nz5y/Line6 Helix-Model Summary, 2,80-P1.0-02.pdf?dl=0 Have fun //Per Edit: Changed the link adress to the correct document

    Rebuilding my pedalboard

    Hi I have a Helix LT with an “external” pedalboard, a few pedals I can’t leave – a compressor, my EP boost (different characteristic from the one in the helix) and my Monty Allums moded Boss BD2. Together with my wireless, Variax pwr unite, a Boss NS2 and an ISO transformer all mounted on a PT Novo 18. This is what’s left of my big board used with my PD HD Pro. Today they are all connected in serial. I would like to integrate it closer to the Helix and using a loop switch so I can turn the comp, EP and the BD2 on/off through a loop switch via MIDI from Helix and assigned switches. I have now drilled this down to two loop switches – G-Lab MIDI 4x Looper (fit on top of the board) and Decibel 11 Loop Extender (fit underneath the board). Price and size have mattered. I also looked at Voodolab HEX looks great but it’s expensive and more than I need, I think. I had an RJM Effect Gizmo, too big to fit my small board, so I sold it (a dream to use). So, my questions to you who have experience from loop switches in general and G-lab/Decibel 11 in particular. Any recommendation and what I should think of? Experience with the G-lab vs Decibel 11? Thanks //Per

    can't open Line 6 updater file

    Do this If you have the old Edit installed a good practice is to make a backup if you have patches an IRs you like to be sure to keep. Go to - https://line6.com/software/ and in the first column select you Helix hardware and in the third column select you mac os and press Go Scroll down to HX Edit 2.71 and press Get Download. You should now start the download. If you are not loged in you will be prompted to do so before it will start. When finished click on the file (I do not know Mac so you need to help me out...) and make the installation. It includes all files - Edit, drivers and updater. Run Edit and see that it starts. Close Edit (important) and start Updater. You should now see your Helix and you sw version. Follow the instructions and run update of the new firmware. I always let the updater do the download. You can download firmware manually end pick it up in the updater. Rest it done by the updater and Helix. Except that you need to accept terms and start update. I always restart the Helix after finish update. Just to be safe... don't know if needed. Sure that someone will correct or add info if forgot something EDIT - Forgot to say, what I know there is no zip'ed files in the download (run PC and have never seen one there). You just make an ordinary installation on your Mac of the HX Edit program with the downloaded file from above. If you downloaded the Helix firmware earlier, its a binary file and can’t be opened or executed. It is installed via the updater into the Helix, see instruction above. Good luck //Per

    Don’t know if I dare…

    But I do it anyway. Caught a cold over the Christmas holidays so the strength was not on top. What to do… Well, why not some Excel-micros :-). So, what to program? … a DSP-calculator maybe. Done! It has its flaws, but it seems to work. Useful, thought to hear what the pros say, I mean you… It contains both the DSP-calculator (dual paths and main and sub on each path) and my earlier cheat sheet (ready to be printed or exported to pdf if you like) as a quick reference. It includes all up to 2.6. Main DSP-numbers are mainly from the Helix DSP Values.xlsx, with some add-ons from other sources. Even in a few cases I have guest the numbers... The future will show if I guessed correct. There are some more notations in the DSP-calculator file. So, test it if you want. Constructive feedback is welcome. If it’s of any use I may keep it updated and even add features. Hope you had a great Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year. 2.8 is waiting... Please find the calculator below. Have fun... //Per Helix DSP Calculator -P1.1-05.xlsx
  11. Hi Don't know if this helps you, but I made a cheat sheet to have at hand - https://www.dropbox.com/s/w6pvbv1l0t0b5cf/Line6 Helix-Model Summary%2C 2%2C60-P1.0-01.pdf?dl=0. If you like quick info it's handy. If you like it in on-line format there is some sites online. I included this one - http://www.helixhelp.com/, with great info and very useful. I also included another address in the document (could not include it in the post by some reason...) to a forum post with massive info about all models. One on the info sources I used for my document above. I actually think this is the original info that is used on the helixhelp-site. Anyway, really a great job on both places. Enjoy. //Per
  12. You can turn the touch sense off in the setup menu. Then you can use it with or without socks and don't need to have shoes on indoors... //Per
  13. If you go back to playback sound device and select inactivate/disable (I have swedish version so something similar and press OK, you should be good. Now you can't use it as sound card but everything else should work. I acually use it this way as I had the same problem. Cheers /Per

    Finished my pedalboard!

    That’s a great idea ... Had an idea that you could only use a suitable bag such as the one in a suitcase to pack shirts in, but maybe a bit stronger/durable, flat square lying loose on top of the Helix. Didn't think of your method... Your method looks interesting. It also means I have to ask how you “fixed” the Helix in the case? Assuming that the cover with the padding do not reaches the Helix, so what’s keeping the Helix in place, preventing it to movewhen lifting the case? I was thinking to fix the Helix with Velcro attached on two or three places underneath. Velcro put on two or three discs/plates, which means that I do not have to remove the feet and keeping the ventilation around the device. Worked on a MIDI board I had before (hade to strips of aluminum with Velcro on both sides width of the Velcro), but the Helix is heavier so have to do some experimenting on this. Or you might have the solution. Have looked at several types of cases, including tailor made, but they are a little too narrow or too wide for what I want to use it for. Yours looks good, but Amazon do not ship to Sweden... Has found one from Swan Flight Cases and one from Rock Case Flight case. The problem with both is that I would like to add a separate expression pedal later and both are a bit too narrow or the next size will be huge. Keep on looking… Will check out the RockBoard mod-moules. Also interesting. The thing is that I have split my gear into two pieces, Helix and a future expression pedal (will go into a case) and one with some irreplaceable pedals… , wireless rx, power switch for my Variax and some more. All mounted on a PT Novo 18. //Per
