    VDI Cable jack disconnects

    That was weird. Glad you found it. I've had very few problems since beginning to use a new able, and making sure the black plastic nut near the end of the cable is tight.

    Custom (variax ) Model Name shows on Helix, not in HXEdit

    The custom-name guitar model does show on the Helix screen, fortunately. Why that isn't reflected in HX edit I have no idea.

    Custom (variax ) Model Name shows on Helix, not in HXEdit

    I love my Helix and JTV, just wondering if others experienced the same thing. As far as the other post about protecting the Helix power connector, in my budget world protecting a $1500 investment is worth considering.
  4. Has anyone else noticed that if you set a custom name for a variax model in Workbench, the Helix onboard screen shows that but HXedit continues to show something like Custom_4 etc ?

    Right angle power cable adapter

    I looked at both the left and right angle cables but the concern still seems to be that when stored in the Helix backpack there will be movement causing wear beyond what the usual plugging/unplugging would cause. I'll have to take another look to see how much room there is around the Helix when stored in my backpack. Wear on the cable isn't an issue ( easy/cheap replacement), it's wear that could lead to the need to replace the power connector on the Helix. Those are also cheap but it would be great to know what's involved in replacing one beyond removing the screws ( soldering? ) Helix power connector - IEC 320 C14 Panel Mount Plug Adapter Power Connector Socket

    You're probably right

    Right angle power cable adapter

    Well the whole point was to avoid wear and tear on the male pins in the Helix power socket. So even though it only sticks out less than an inch, you're thinking it will work back and forth putting abnormal stress on the Helix?

    Right angle power cable adapter

    Is this a good or bad idea to avoid wear and tear on the power connection ( Helix Floor )? Main concern is how it will work inside the Helix backpack. I was told it sticks out from the back of the Helix, when pushed in fully, about 1/2 to 3/4 inches. My Helix is in the backpack for about 2 hours per month, only in my car, no flights.

  10. Anybody's variax ( JTV specifically ), get this Rbilly tone? https://l6c-acdn2.line6.net/…/0a064339ba…/audio/mp3/file.mp3 [ Rbilly bridge on this page https://line6.com/variax-modeling-guitars/sound/ ]

    1-click Looper in 8 snapshot mode?

    Somebody suggested this: Set it to 4/4 mode in globals ( 4 snapshots, 4 stomp switches ) , and hold bank up/down to switch into 8 snapshots on the fly Manage , and don’t forget there is a second global setting for whether or not it stays in 8-snap mode after you select a snap.

    1-click Looper in 8 snapshot mode?

    Could you add the 1-click-looper to a preset and have it turned off in all but one of 8 snapshots? If not assigned to a footswitch then I guess you might not see the color changes as it goes from recording to overdub to playback etc.
  13. Doesn't take much of a bump when the actual contacts at the guitar end of the cable can move when the Jack housing is not moving. Maybe I just imagined the whole thing. :-)
  14. The VDI cable disconnect issue: I think I may have found the issue here. The cables I bought don't have the shrink tubing ( sweetwater vdi cable ). Mine both have a black knurled "nut" shown by the red arrows and if those aren't tight, the jack inside can move in an out. This may have been causing my disconnects if the cable was bumped in that area.
  15. Something odd today: I have a Helix patch where the custom tuning is the same for all snapshots ( each string set one semi-tone up). Today in one snapshot it was playing correctly, but in another the tuning appeared to be standard despite the patch showing "custom" with +1 on all strings. When the patch is dictating which guitar and tuning the variax should produce, does it matter where the alt tuning knob on the guitar is set ( Model, Standard , etc ) ? Flipping that knob ( can't remember now if it was to model or standard ) fixed the issue.
