  1. @n9nu was it easy to replace? I have 2 DT-50 112's.
  2. I have a Dr. Z Airbrake. Haven't used it for years. Reason being I never had service required issues with my DT amps until after I used it and have had no issues since I stopped using it. I have 2 DT50 amps since 2010 and 2012 (as I seem to recall). I'm probably being superstitious but I adapted and with the replacement of the HD500 with the Helix Floor..... very good times and manageable sound control for all environments. YMMV.
  3. Wow! First time I heard someone prefer the legacy combo over the Helix. I also have had better (or easier) results with some full amp models. To answer one of your question: Yeah you can manually set your DT settings and they will save when you hit save on your helix. (Minus MASTER VOL and REVERB of course) It took my hours to get sounds I liked on the DT/HD setup. With the HELIX I find it so easy. I'm really surprised (and sympathetic) that you aren't getting the results you want. What style(s) are you playing? Just curious. Where do you keep the master volume on the Helix? I sincerely hope everything works out for you.
  4. That would be cool to have a DT subgroup of amp models. Not that there’s a huge group of us.
  5. I find the controls pretty straight forward. ...and the results undeniable. Its a a definite upgrade. YMMV
  6. They did for me....twice. It took over 3 months each time. I have 2 so as these fail I will be moving on at this point...but I will miss them when that day comes.
  7. You'll likely be thrilled with Helix with DT. I base that on the fact that I've never met or chatted with anyone who was disappointed. It's great! By great I mean WAY BETTER. If you have a helix try it and if the controls from the Helix don't work you will needs to be updated. I do not know if your audiobox will work but it can't hurt to try. ...but check this out: $15 bucks(!) and you won't need midi cables which will cost you nearly that much anyway.
  8. HD series with L6 link? You don't have to use the effects. HD300's are starting @ $150 used doing a quick search. A midi Floorboard(?) starts @ the same price point:
  9. 1. Did you try re-installing the M Audio driver? 2. try a different computer? At that point I would take it in to a service center.
  10. I guess you tried this - From the manual: DT Amplifier Factory Reset As mentioned in the above sections, when customizing any settings via MIDI, your changes remain “saved” internally on the DT amplifier. This includes changes made to the preamp and power amp per Voicing switch value, Reverb and more. To return all settings back their factory default state, you’ll need to perform a “Reset” of the DT amp. To perform the Reset, start with the DT amplifier powered “Off,” then simultaneously hold the Voicing toggle switch DOWN and the Pentode/Triode toggle switch UP while powering the amp “On.” Continue to hold these toggle switches in this position until you see the Voicing “I” indicator light up (this takes about 15 seconds). The DT factory default settings are then fully restored and your DT amp is ready to play.
  11. It's about time! Although it appears we are a dying breed with Helix functionality we have much to explore, celebrate and share. I look forward to participating and learning from your group.
  12. I should’ve traded up to that helix years ago. If you are using your DT 50/25 in conjunction with the HD 500 X, You will only gain. You lose nothing. That’s the bottom line. The answer to all of the questions is a resounding “yes you can!”. The learning curve for the helix is a couple of hours coming from the HD 500 series. Its only a win situation and as I said somewhere here in the last 2 months as a new helix owner...I haven’t seen anyone sell their helix and go back to an HD series. The tone behind my words is joyous rapture. Upgrade folks!… And let’s start sharing presets! The XLR out to front of the house is great too in my opinion. No complaints there either.
  13. It’s so ridiculously good! I was able to get this functionality two months ago when I first got the helix thanks to another member who taught me basic MIDI. All the musicians in my town were hounding me to play through my rig. I finally had to put the Kabash on it LOL Dialing in sounds was never this easy with the HD 500. Truly a dream rig. Although I have the added stress of wondering if my amps Will have the dreaded power transformer failure… For the third time. ....but for the last year of steady use of my far so good. Congrats.

    @psarkissian are there any warning signs on these amps when it is nearing time to change the tubes?
  15. It can’t hurt to try. It may work.
  16. It won’t brick the amp. And by holding a few switches while powering on you can reset your amp. So there’s no risk. It will either work or it won’t. It probably won’t even detect your amp if using an incompatible cable.
  17. I bought mine at a guitar center. Most music shops should have the M audio branded midi USB interface. Or order one off Amazon or eBay.
  18. Many people had problems updating their DT 50/25s using a generic midi to USB adapter. I used the M audio one and it worked perfectly for both my amps.
  19. The last DT update which I believe is 2.x is required for L6 link compatibility with the Helix. By default the DT Channel a preamp is disabled when you are hooked up to helix 2.8 with L6 link. Channel b by default has DT preamp enabled. Also be careful with getting a generic midi to USB adapter. When the DT update first came out people had problems with it and I can verify the M audio MIDI adapter/USB works.
  20. So we should all presume everybody is a woman and therefore entitled to different treatment? I always thought initially that the beauty of forums was that you would be judged solely based on the content and not on your physical appearance. That was before the current political climate. Is it equality to treat people different based on their gender, skin color, etc.? Before the enlightenment we identified by our tribe of sorts. It was the realization that those were not significant factors that allowed us to evolve into the modern age. Write me a prescription and I’ll be sure to get some therapy. I have great insurance. The prince of town is pretty sweet in 2.80 no? Ps: I would be quite willing to go back and delete every one of the negative posts in this thread to make peace. But let’s be honest… You’re just trying to find reasons to degrade me in defense of those people who are your friends… And not because you are a social justice warrior of women and trans people. LOL But I’m persuadable with positive communication. It’ can be an ugly place when a thread goes… Off-topic.
  21. You can only be a misogynist if you were insulting a woman or hate them. It’s not misogynist to insult people who weren’t born women but act like them. That would be something else Homophobia....Relax brother I don’t mind your preferences
  22. You could not possibly be my buddy. We must go back… you are obviously the girlfriend of someone based on the emotional spewing’s coming out of your moist wet little crease. Along with the other enablers in your sad little circle jerk. On the other hand 2.80 is great. So I celebrate. Smooches lollipop If you had a single semblance of honesty you would admit that I’ve done some epic insults to you and all your little girlfriends. In my neighborhood that’s what… Friends do. We keep each other in check. Honestopinion may convey an opinion… But just because it’s his honest opinion does not make it right or correct. I never put myself above any of you and only alluded that the possibility exists that you might have been rude to somebody else. I was not taking a superior stance… And he expressed that I was politically correct… He must be stupid. And I hope this post clarifies the point that I could give a lollipop. But his opinion wasn’t honest. It was a passive aggressive attempt at an insult. You four circle jerker’s are so completely pathetic. You are sad excuses for men.
  23. Windows 10 user here. The update went fine but after the successful update the laptop stopped seeing any device at all plugged in. There was a flag in the USB controller under device manager. Switched ports on secondary USB controller and device was detected. Uninstalled the flagged controller, had device manager scan for hardware changes, it refreshed the driver, and it restored and the controller worked detected Helix. Never had a driver issue with the controller before. It seems like the process affected the controller driver. Using a 6 year old Samsung. "Core i7 CPU" So update issues may not be exclusive to win7 but to older hardware as well.
  24. When all else fails.... #metoo :-)
