  1. The IR's in Powercab are found under the Digital output (you need to be connected via L6-Link, I guess there is a MIDI-way too, but never used it). After selecting Digital output you will find the Powercab tab where you can select IR and which IR to use (same place where you select Flat and Speaker mode). There is some Allure preinstalled, think it was 5 in my cab. If you want to import more IR's you need to use Power Edit (select import or drag/drop into the editor) In HX Edit you can’t see the name of your IR, only position/number. I made a list on the side with the loaded IR’s and in which position. Your Powercab must have version 2.001 and the Editor 2.00 (software found here https://line6.com/software/index.html) to do above. //Per

  4. I did similar to PierM… Had a large board with pedals and some additional pedals in my 19” rack (midi controled). At that time, I had a POD HD Pro in the rack too that were my “master”. Bought my Helix LT and most of my pedals was replaced by the LT except for my Boss BD3 (Monte Allums mod), Boss NS2, homebuilt compressor (home built, mainly for acoustic), EP-boost clone (home built, so good), Shure GLXD16, Variax Power Supply for my 500 and an isolation transformer to prohibit ground loops. Those pedals are sitting on small Pedaltrain board with room to add an expression pedal later. This gives med three small simple modules to bring when needed at that moment - LT, pedal board and my L6 PC+. The large board I sold and if I need space for more pedals I get another small board and rearrange depending on needs. I don't see that happening as the possibilities in the LT i keeps on coming. And, how much do you need to play Blues... :-) My 19” rack just host a small rack mixer, my studio amp, my soundcard and a Furman conditioner - All this stays at home. Added a pic to visualize it… //Per

    HF Trim Test

    Hi rd2rk Finally done the tests and tried to document it below. I did the following I only had my HX Edit open on my PC during test (HX edit and Helix LT both on 3.15) (PC Edit 2.0 and PC+ fw 2.00.1) Interesting finding – Having both PC Edit and HX Edit open and having both MIDI and L6-Link connected made PC editors to freez (did itby mistake) … When you say LF Trim, I guess you mean HF Trim, just testing me right… :-) In snapshot 4 it’s noticed 2xGREEN, I guess that’s because you have a PC+212 and I have a PC+112… Tried the Snapshots from top to bottom, from bottom to top and randomly switched to different snapshots, just to check full control. Snapshot 5 and 6 – Had problem to get those to work, had no sound from the start, from both of them. Really don’t know what made it start but changing User IR was one of them even if I had copied the green-IR to 33… This is one of the really stupid things, I don’t see which IR is in a position from HX Edit. I need to open the PC Edit, and we know what happens then… Used my Gibson LP Studio with Bursbucker 2 + 3 (bridge position to focus on the top end) wireless direct to my L6 Helix LT. Which resulted in this Snapshot 1 – HF Trim had a distinct effect on top end tone. HF turned on and off when switching between Snap 1 and Snap 2-4. Snapshot 2 – HF Trim has no effect on top end tone. Snapshot 3 – HF Trim has no effect on top end tone. Snapshot 4 – HF Trim has no effect on top end tone. Snapshot 5 – HF Trim has no effect on top end tone. Snapshot 6 and 7 – HF Trim had a distinct effect on top end tone. The snap's controlled the switching between the two via MIDI and L6-Link. No sound difference (if I they used the same IR :-). Please let me know if this was what you expected and if there is anything else you want me to test. Added comment - Ì only tested the HF Trim/tweeter in/out, did not test any sound quality questions. If that's of interest let me know and what to test. //Per

    HF Trim Test

    A question that hit me... When you did this, did you have the HX Edit and PC Edit open at the same time? Ask because a while back (about 6 months) I did a similar experience (not with Trim, changed some configurations) and got a feeling that PC+ did not know who was in charge, HX Edit via Helix LT USB to L6-Link to PC+ or PC Edit via USB to PC+. Actually, have not used PC Edit since then… Can be a coincidence but as we talking random behavior I bring it up on the table. //Per

    HF Trim Test

    Yes, random problem is a pain. One of the worst I have had (in my music life) was two years ago. More then one part interacted. Got BSOD on my Win 10 PC when turning it off and randomly at start up and random freeze. Only happened when my Helix was on. Run a crash analyzer software and it pointed at Helix… (reflashing Helix and reinstallation HX Edit made no difference). Long story short, it was a combo of a Win10 update (early 2020), beta drivers to my old Focusrite Scarlett soundcard and a loudness meter software (witch I really miss). ASIO-drivers was probably one cause and the Win10-update did not help…(main problem probably loudness meter catalyzed by the sound card drivers). 6 months of struggle and my Helix (hw and sw) had probably nothing to do with it, were just symptoms. I will not use the PC Edit... Well, I found my MIDI-cables. As the brave man I am I will give it a shot during the week and report back. //Per

    HF Trim Test

    Hi rd2rk Sorry, don’t visit here as often as I would like to… and looks like I’m not the only one. Anyway, I have followed this story (on TGP, but can’t find my way back to the original thread… to update my memory on the background) as I became an owner of the PC+ 112 a year ago. I had the ambition to use my PC+ in a more flexible way than I actually do today (onboard IR’s, speaker emulation etc.) (have a hard time to load/find IR’s with the right specs… and not that impressed of the speaker simulation, PC Edit have a lot to which for etc.). So, its FRFR via L6-Link/HX Edit thar rules at this moment. Hope one day L6 at least made a final update both of PC+ itself, the PC Edit and the integration to Helix/HXEdit. I really like the concept and what I am hearing but it definitely not letting me use the capabilities that’s hidden in there and some was functions I hoped was there. I can run some tests for you if it’s OK that I ask a few stupid questions first. a) Get a feeling that bullet 6 uses MID, correct? I’ll try to fine my MIDI-cables… are in a box somewhere. Will the test fail if I can’t do the MIDI-test? b) Are there any global settings I need to set in my Helix or PC+ to get it to work? EG I guess I need to set HX to 8 snapshot mode. c) Did you have this problem on both your PC+ 112 and 212 (If I remember correct you had both)? Ask because I only have the 112 to test on. d) The bullet 6 and 7 I guess are the onboard IR’s in the PC+. e) So, I guess what you want me to listen for if the tweeter is turned on/off in the different configurations and if I hear a difference (snap 1/2/3 turns tweeter on/off I FRFR mode + 4/5 has tweeter turned off and run speaker emulation + 6/7 test switching IR patches on PC+ via midi/L6-Link). Anything else I should have in mind when performing the tests? Just so you get the outcome you want. Don’t beat yourself up on this if it happens to be the reflash that solved the problem. That’s called experience after the cause of the problem is found… no one else solved it and you don’t even try to hide anything. That’s honorable… You may be harassed a little of cause, but that’s part of the game… :-) I think I can run the test during the week and let you know. //Per

  10. Hi In case you missed it, there is a new revision oft the HX Edit 3.15 Pilot's Guide available - https://line6.com/data/6/0a020a3f1049f61fd3077f0eca/application/pdf/HX Edit 3.15 Pilot's Guide - English .pdf (Uner https://line6.com/support/manuals/). //Per
  11. Hi Just updated my Helix LT and went through all the new stuff in this amazing update. The weekend is saved… So figured that I make an update to my Cheat Sheet, Line6 Helix Model Summary, and hope it can be of any use for you. This version incl the 3.15 update - Amps, cabs, mics and effects are listed in order of appearance on the unit. Have also corrected some minor errors and mistyping found in previous version. On the new added models, I don’t have any info about input impedance, so they are marked TBD for now. Also, I'm not sure on some of the effects. It looks like some effects are mono in and stereo out… I got aware on this when investigating Ben Vesco’s site. Will make an update later when I find more info. Download from my Dropbox (pdf-format) - https://www.dropbox.com/s/gdme46mvj7gt4g2/Line6 Helix-Model Summary%2C 3%2C15-01x.pdf?dl=0 Have fun //Per

  15. Hi That's good. So you have 127 IR positions and 13 speakers. That's what in v2.00.1. I checked my PC+ regarding IR and I have the same as you but someone has renamed yours and probably moved them too... This is what I have and I made your IR namnes bold in my list below. 000 Allure-64-A30-G12 001 Allure-59-Tweed-P10N 002 Allure-64-USDeluxe-P12N 003 Allure-67-Brit-Greenback 004 Allure-70s-WhoWatt-100 005 Allure-90s-Cali-V30 So the list you have are the Allure IR's that came with the new PC+ but names are edited , and that's fine. They are OK sounding. It was a vile since I used the IR's in PC+ but I have used the same in some of my Helix patches. Those IR are not the same as speakers that are emulated under Mode - Speakers. IR's is a speaker captured with a microphone, as in a recording studio. Look in the PC+ manual on page 9 and 10 you will se the difference. In short - Speakers give you the "amp in the room" and IR's is like listening to a recording of the same speaker. It will be colored from everything from speaker cab to your ears - mic used, distance and position on the speaker, room, recording equipment etc. One thing I hade forgotten was that you do not see the PC+ IR-names in Edit, just the position... that's strange. To know whats in a position you need PC+ Edit. Regarding what is coming in next firmware release, that will be a secret until it's available :-). If you have a wish list you can address it in Ideascale or up vote it if its already there. You find that here - https://line6.ideascale.com/ Where did you fined your list, below? #14 64 A30 #15 59 Tweed #16 64 Deluxe #17 67 Greenback #18 WhoWatt #19 90s Cali V30 //Per
  16. Sorry, did not read your post correct. The Jetson speaker is the last one. It is 12 speaker models in the latest firmware. The one you list, are as phil_m noted, IR's. In my Edit I have the following settings, with the output block set to Digital. Click on it and select tab Bypass/Control and Powercab Remote - Per preset Mode - IR You should now see a slider to select IR and the one you listed should be there Not at my PC now but check tomorrow if my memory failed me... Remember that display on Powercab do not reflect what you sending from Edit/Hx. It's what in Edit/Hx that is used. /Per
  17. As phil_m say if it's the ir's you looking for. If it's the six new speaker models then you need v. 2.00.1 on your PC+. If so you get DINO – Based on* the Eminence Cannabis Rex™. LECTO – Based on* the Electro-Voice® EVM 12L. HERALD – Based on* the Celestion® G12H(55) Heritage. BROWN – Based on* the Celestion® G12 EVH®. SHADE – Based on* the Mesa/Boogie Black Shadow C90. JETSON – Based on* the Jensen® C12K. Check downloads on Line6.com for release notes //Per
  18. Hi MauroDave You got a lot of good advice above. As you tried them out and still have the problem I add two things that I think hasn't been discussed. Bring this up in case you get you Stomp exchanged and the problem is in your house... Take your Stomp, you Les Paul (less noise sensitive) and your headphones an go to another house (work, friend, relative...). Just to see if you can reproduce the problem being in another environment (different power grid, different "noises"....). At home, use the same set up as above, unplug all power supplies from your equipment (not your Stomp). The important part is 115VAC/230VAC side. Eg it's not enough to unplug your laptop on the Laptop side, also the main line voltage. Unplug your Internet router from main power line etc., do the same with all you can find and see if you can kill the noise. I through in a third also... If you have another power supply that you can use on the Stomp, try that too. What I'm after are switched power supplies, ground issues, radiation noise etc. By keeping it in a close loop (Stomp/LP/headphone only) narrow down what is working and from there add things. As it seems to come and go it can be related to something switching off/on, having heat issues in some equipment connected to the main power line etc. One of my trickiest finding was my desk lamp (halogen). I could not find the noise source until i rearranged my cables underneath the desk and forgot to plug in the lamp. The switch that turned on/off the lamp was connected to the 12V feed of the lamp, not the main transformer (in the lamp foot containing transformer and switch). The transformer produced all the noise and was never turned off intill I unplugged it... Don't know if its helps but maybe worth a shot or create some new ideas... or confusion :-) //Per
  19. Hi Check the power management on your pc - Usb ports, right click in the port and check that power management is turned off/not allow to set the port in stand by. - Optimize power management - In control panel find energy setting there you have e few options. Pick the option balanced mode and never set the computer in power saving mode. Find advanced options and the USB option and select the option inactivate the possibility to turn off the usb-ports. Above could be the problem, specially if its a lap top. To run a pc with real time applications its a good practice to optimize the system, incl audio, not letting any parts to be turned off, eg usb-ports, netwotk cards, pci-buss etc. You find them under the advanced tab described in second bullet above. On Internet there are descriptions in how to optimize the pc to run audio, above are part of that. Some are very advanced and I have only done the basics like power management, optimized some processes and turned off some application in start up. Hope above make sense, my pc is set to Swedish so I might not have translate the win 10 names correct... ;-) Give it a shot and see if it helps //Per

  21. Hi I was looking for parts to upgrade the “appearance” of my speakers (new clothing, new grill, new connectors etc.) and I ran into some info that might be of help. I have not opened mine PC+ yet but remembered reading this post earlier - https://line6.com/support/topic/59895-powercab-plus-112-how-to-open/.

    Snapshot problem...

    Hi dutdog Just to be sure you and phil_m are on the same spot... if you open About HX Edit under Help menu in Edit and have your LT turned on you should see this below. Both has to be on the version, 3.11. A miss match can cause problems. If your LT are on version 3.01.0 you need to upgrade including doing a backup (or reinstall Edit HX 3.0x). And as phil_m said after update make a factory reset and restore your backup. I usually also make a restart of my LT to be sure... If I missunderstod your reply earlier please ignore my post... //Per
  23. Don't know the FocusRite Clarett AI (have the Scarlett myself) but if you connect through mic inputs on AI set output from Helix to instrument level to the appropriate output you use. You change this in global setting. If you have a line input use that and line out on Helix. Rest as rd2rk and Smalle. //Per
