    Looper for sound checks

    I have a Relay G10s wireless on order but thought I'd try the looper as a way to double-check patch tones at the venue. I'm just sticking the "one switch" looper at the end of some patches so I can walk the room in the Venue listening to the sound looping. Placing it at the end of the patch AND setting the final output block to zero ( no gain or cut in volume ) regardless of snapshot allows you to loop on one snapshot and solo over it on another. Easiest way in the absence of HxEdit seems to be just select the looper with the joystick and bypass, unbypass it as needed.

    Long RJ-45 cable for sound check

    Cool.... What's the best source for an additional battery that'll work in a JTV

    Long RJ-45 cable for sound check

    I think using the wireless during sound check and a 1/4 inch cable plus battery , and the vdi for the actual performance will work.... this is going to be used in a full band mix with several hundred people in the congregation singing so I doubt if there's anybody going to hear the difference...... I thought about using the looper in the Helix but that's a pain in the neck when you're set up for all snapshots.

    Long RJ-45 cable for sound check

    That's a good idea, I'll try it. I'm probably also going to get the Relay G10s wireless, but not sure I'll use it with the JTV since I'd have to go back to using the guitar battery etc.
  5. If I wanted to get out into the room during sound check, would there be any drawback to use a 50 foot length of RJ-45? I'd still use my Line 6 VDI cable for the actual song sets. This would run from Helix on stage to JTV-59 http://AmazonBasics RJ45 Cat-6 Ethernet Patch Cable - 50 Feet (15.2 Meters)
  6. I'm considering buying this as my first wireless unit. Should work fine with my old stratocaster but with my JTV59 variax it will be problematic. Without the special VDI cable you have to rely on the variax battery and it doesn't work as well with the Helix on a regular guitar cable. https://www.amazon.com/Line-Digital-Wireless-Relay-G10S/dp/B07KCYZNTY

    NEW Relay G10S Wireless System

    I'm considering buying this as my first wireless unit. Should work fine with my old stratocaster but with my JTV59 variax it will be problematic. Without the special VDI cable you have to rely on the variax battery and it doesn't work as well with the Helix on a regular guitar cable.
  8. I'm considering the 10S as my first wireless rig. Looks like $249 is the street price. Line 6 Shop G10s price

    Direct, unamplified guitar tracks for Native

    I know some people play live with Helix Native. I may have to try running the Reaper/Native signal out to a real speaker like my Alto TS212 to see how it does. I'm not planning on using these "reaper/native" patches for gigging, just to reverse engineer other people's patches and be able to delve into every "knob" on every effect and amp without having to use the Floor rig and a guitar. So the results of, say, twisting the SAG control on an amp in Native needs to give me at least some useful feedback. I'm surprised that free DI ( unamplified ) guitar tracks are more easily found out on the net.

    Direct, unamplified guitar tracks for Native

    Helix connected to laptop over usb. It was an empty Helix patch. In Reaper I was using some $30 bluetooth headphones, but if they are the problem, it wasn't latency. Seems a little better with better "hard wired" headphones. Here's the file: Random DI Guitar picking WAV file
  11. I have Helix Floor but bought native mainly so I can load presets from CustomTone and elsewhere and view their setup without having to get out a guitar and fire up the floor unit every time. Works fine for that. I've installed the VST3 into Reaper and may also try Cakewalk. I created a direct guitar track using an empty preset on my helix, running into an Audacity mono track. This mp3 ( or wav ) works fine with Native/Reaper also but the tonal qualities aren't impressive using some of my normal Helix patches. Would this simply be due to monitoring with headphones instead of the full range flat response powered speaker I normally use? Or are there other "accommodations" you have to make in Native to get closer to "Floor" tonal quality?

    Used JTV59 prices

    Line 6 still has the refurbished ones for $959 I saw one on Sweetwater's used page which allows offers/bids. I suspect the prices will return to normal on used ones. It seems to be a love/hate thing with some people who are unwilling to learn to use it deciding to sell within a few months. https://shop.line6.com/hardware/refurbished/g11-6-jtv-59-cherry-sunburst-electric-guitar.html Guitar center used gear: $799 https://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Line-6/2013-JTV59-James-Tyler-Variax-Solid-Body-Electric-Guitar.gc?cntry=us&source=4WWRWXGP&gclid=Cj0KCQiAhKviBRCNARIsAAGZ7CcmCbrTPE_ejZkEU0phT8Ay8lJtPub9ErP_utd5C0rNorodJbFdE80aAlR_EALw_wcB
  13. All of a sudden this week I'm seeing a few used JTV 59s on Ebay and Reverb.com priced as though they were brand new. I don't think they are U.S. models. I'm after a second JTV59 in Cherry and was expecting to see them more in the $500-$700 range ( which is what I would offer if I decided to bid ) Line 6 has refurbished versions for about $950 https://reverb.com/item/11147363-line-6-james-tyler-variax-jtv-59-modeling-electric-guitar-in-cherry-sunburst

    G10 typical range

    Now that I've decided to start using my old 74 Strat, this sounds like fun. What are people finding the useful max range is where they perform? (G10) Where I play the back of the room is 65 feet from the stage where the receiver and my Helix would be sitting.

    How is that Bigsby holding up? How many new screw holes had to be drilled?
