  1. If you're using Windows and the Helix is off, the computer should default to your normal sound source. If Helix is on and you want to use your normal sound source. Click the speaker on the taskbar and choose a non-helix source. bobruz
  2. The Lifetime Service Center in Williamsville, NY (Buffalo) has been excellent for warranty work on my Helix and Variax gear. Address: 1955 Wehrle Dr. Williamsville, NY 14221 Hours: 8AM - 5:30PM Phone: (716) 632-0216 Appointments:
  3. I have had this problem in the past when I started using StudioOne for recording with Helix as interface. Thought it was my Surface Studio USB. Turned out to be the fairly cheap USB cable I was using from Helix to computer. Bought a high quality, shielded USB cable from BEST. Cost like $24. All cracks, pops and random noise gone completely. Cheers, bobruz
  4. How about running 1/4" out to your tube amp like you do now and run L6Link cable to PC+? Then you have control of both audio streams.
  5. Hi Andrioman, Mine turned out to be faulty switch. Line6 repair depot fixed it up for me. I did see some questionable joints, but reflowing them did not solve the problem. Turnaround was only a week or so in my case. I live like 2 mins. from authorized service shop. Bobruz
  6. I have experienced this pitching remnant when switching to a longer reverb, high depth snapshot from a different snapshot on both the LT & Rack units running 2.92. I will try the "Transparent" setting and report back.
  7. I had a popping and cracking issue using the Helix as an interface. Turned out to be an inferior shielded USB cable. Bought a hi-Grade shielded USB cable for about $20 and all noise was gone. All other settings were default. Just wanted to share the simple fix.
  8. Check out pg. 47 in the LT manual eh. If you have a sound module of some type with drum sounds, you can send MIDI CC's via the Command Center in the LT to fire the sounds you want. Remember to go to Global settings and turn off the TX MIDI PC setting. This will prevent the LT from automatically send a MIDI PC message every time you hit a button. I have not tried it with my LT. But I have done similar triggers with the Helix rack & controller.
  9. Updated Helix Rack, LT & Stomp last night to 2.92. No issues at all. Smooth transition.
  10. This has been my experience with the G90. Been using it for a few years with Helix. Rear input is not ideal. Front input is best.
  11. My saddles can move a bit in the bridge. They were always that way. I will try the cleaning as well when I can and report back.
  12. I have this condition right now as well. Only on 1st string. Acoustically when plucked, there is a ghosting or metallic tone as the string vibrates. Sounds like it is hitting something. Pickups are not near the strings. String has plenty of room to pass over the bridge. String gauge is .010". Loosening and moving the string in the piezo saddle affects it but does not eliminate it. Not sure what to do next. It is un-playable in this condition. 3 Months ago, it was fine. No changes other than strings...always the same type & gauge. Bobruz
  13. That was a great book for sure. Helped many of us learn to play. Saw Pat Travers in Buffalo a few weeks ago. Using a Helix and a Mesa Head and 2x12 cab. He reproduced all those glorious 70's ADA flanger, delay and wah tones incredibly well. He ran directly into the Return of the Mesa head. One red pedal in the loop. As far as the memorable solos go.....Pat Thrall is an excellent compliment to PT's playing. Great technical player. But he did not join the band until Heat In The Street. Pat was killing it long before Thrall was along for the ride.
  14. I've seen this before with the FS-7 on my board. Cycle the momentary/latch switch again. It should settle in.
  15. This looks great!!!!! Can you share more info? Can we get to any info via a link? Thanks for sharing eh.
