  1. My HX Stomp kept crashing at the start of the update. Even global reset wouldn't help. Finally tried downloading latest driver, 2.71 and earlier. The update worked perfect.
  2. Thanks all. I got tired of lugging my heads and cabinets around. My bass pod was great, but the output options are very limited. I see they modeled Billy Sherman's Pierce preamp that he loved for years. Whole he hasn't given up the amps and cabinets (who would with those royalties). But I have no doubts the Helix is a great step up. I think I'll get an Lt to use gigging and then get a full model for my home studio. I haven't expanded that too much yet and the full Helix would be a great tool. Plus being able to copy all my custom tones and effects to the Lt makes it even better. I'll post my updates once it comes. Going in the studio to record a new demo with my band in a couple of weeks. Hopefully I can get some comparisons with the Helix vs the studio racks.
  3. And I guess the next question is do I need it or are the Helix amps and effects more than enough?
  4. Thanks. That was what I was thinking. What is the software that costs less for Helix and 200 more for Lt?
  5. Would love some input on the full Helix or the lt for bass. I am currently still using ny bass pod xt live. I know, I know great back in the day but I find myself going direct more and more. Looks like the Helix will even serve a bowl of soup! Kidding aside I use a mix of active and passive basses. Even got an acoustic to play with. I play live quite a bit but still using an amp. Looking to cut down or eliminate any large amp. Go direct at larger gigs and use a small very neutral sounding amp at smaller ones. I love the amp modeling. I don't use any additional effects other than a tuner. Doing some basic recording but don't want to regret it if I end up limiting myself down the road. I know the Lt vs my bass pod is like going from a Yugo (yes I'm that old) to a Corvette. Is the full Helix overkill for a bass player? Or is the Ferrari justified? Thanks
