    Helix FAQ

    Hi DeanDinosaur! The problem comes when I have to switch between these sound with only one button. I don't want to do tip-tap because with my band I need really fast switching when I'm doing quite complicated stuff and I can't manage to press two or more buttons in a row.

    This is like my POD HD500 works, right? The point is that I have 5 main sounds (1) clean; 2) clean+delay; 3) crunch; 4) distorted; 5) distorted+delay) and I need to switch between them (in no specific order) with only 1 foot-press and mantaining the delay trails if I come from a sound with delay. Very simple. This is possible with other machines of this (or lower) price-tag but at the moment this seems impossibile with Helix. This is very frustrating because, otherwise, the Helix seems the best multifx on the market. I really hope you can fix this because to me this is a very important/basic feature. Anyway thanks for your kind reply.

    Can I have more details about the switching options within the single preset? Is there a mode/option when I press fs1 (that of course engages some effects loaded in the preset) and then when I press fs2 other effects are activated and fs1 deactivates automatically with its effects? Thanks.

    Pod HD500 suffers big lags (and silence) through patches with only effect loaded (no amps) and every digital multifx lags a bit at the patch change. I think is impossibile to have this 100% solved. Line6, you did a great job but please really consider include the "scene" mode from the launch or at least assure it will come with in an early update: it will solve _all_ the problems regarding lags an spillovers and it is only a matter of software programming! With 32 effects per patch the "scene" mode will be top notch and it will make this a killer machine.

    My biggest concern too. Please consider to insert delay tails or a proper "scene" mode ad launch. To me this is crucial to decide if buy or not the Helix.

    Do they only toggles from the previous state (as the pod HD) or can you set "ON" or "OFF"?

    Great! Yes, I immagined because also my pod hd500 can do this but I would like to know the inverse... in other words, if I can assign the on/off on 1 effect to more than 1 footswitch. For esample: I load a patch with only one overdrive and one delay. I would like to set it up like this: fs1: overdrive on; delay on fs2: overdrive off; delay off fs3: overdrive on; delay off fs4: overdrive off; delay off With the pod HD is not possible. Is this possible with Helix? Wow, another great feature! Thankyou so much, Flavio

    Question 1: can I use one of the loop with the "pre" section of my guitar combo (aka: 4 cables method)? Are the loops designed to work also this way or I will experience big ground loops and noise? Question 2: In footswitch mode can I associate che on/off status of each effect to more than one footswitch or I'm limitet to associate the on/off status to only one footswitch as I am with the Pod HD? Thanks!
