  1. I have the same issue. Would very much like to know the fix. I've never had issues with PODHD or Helix before. I hope there is a fix. I also get these errors when trying to load presets: - Failed to get preset names Service is not online - code - 8207 - Failed to paste one or more presets. Unknown communication error - code - 8200 - HX Edit was unable to import some presets from "Setlist Name" due to the following errors: 8604 - No symbol lookup table for models and parameters Each time it locks up my Helix. I did make sure that HX Edit matches the Firmware 2.82. Any help would be much appreciated. thanks

    I hooked up the amp and rockcrusher to make sure all is well (bad tube or cable, etc.). No problems. I have no idea why this isn't working - I may try a hum destroyer or something of the kind later. Thanks guys for your help. I've actually used the DT25 - Rockcrusher - Helix in a live setting before (with the workaround) and it works great - but that is a bit different b/c I'm bypassing the preamp and just using the poweramp.

    Yes. FX Loop 1 (set to instrument level in global settings) - I had the cable just in the send 1 out to guitar amp front. Then I had the return cable in the Return 2 (set to line level in global settings).

    Thanks - this is exactly what I was doing except for adding the lift. It would work until I turned up the amp (channel and master volume) then there would be very loud screeching noise. I wonder if I added one of those hum destroyers if that would do the trick. It just doesn't appear to be your typically hum issue (loud screeching noise). Thanks again - video was helpful.

    Listening to Pete Thorn's Q&A #28 - (I don't know how to cut and paste the youtube link on this forum). Start at 2:30 and he addresses this question exactly. The one thing I don't have is a lift coming out of the Helix into the front of the amp. I think I may be having a ground loop issue when I tried it. I have rehearsal tonight so I may grab a direct box (if we have one that will work) and try it again. If I recall there is a lift on the back of the Helix - I wonder if that would do the trick?? Has any one else actually got this work?? I'm with jeffhucik - I really don't think I would use this in a live setting but I'd like to understand it so as to have it available. The Helix by itself I have grown to absolutely love.

    I'm missing something - I can't get it to work. I even tried with DT25.

    The Helix sounds so good on its own I doubt I'd use this in a live setting at this point. Sometimes I like to figure stuff out. The Rockcrusher has a line out control as well - I think that most likely is an easy solution (finding the right level to have the signal coming back to Helix). Still not sure why when I ran FX Send 1 instrument to front of amp then Fx Return 2 line level to the Helix didn't work.

    You're probably right. I may try it tonight. One question I had with using the same send/return is that if the Load Box is sending the signal back at line level and Helix is set to instrument level - would that be a problem or mess up the Helix?? Is it safe to have it set to instrument and have a line level signal coming in the Return?

    Roscoe5 - total lack of understanding. I was assuming that instrument level going in to the amp and line level coming out of the load box. That is why I split the FX loops to Send 1 at instrument level and Return 2 at line level. I didn't even try the instrument level for both in one FX loop. I was thinking that level would be too low coming back - but I may give it go. jbuhajla - I tried this the other night with not good results - it didn't work. I put the two FX blocks Send 1 then Return 2 right next to each other - kinda like an FX loop in two blocks. Not sure if that was correct.

    Here is what I tried and it didn't work - I must be missing something. Guitar -> Helix (input) -> FX Send 1 (instrument level) -> Front of amp -> Amp speaker out -> Rockcrusher reactive load -> back to Helix FX Return 2 Line Level. The goal was to do what I think Pete Thorn did - use the amp head preamp and power amp and then depending on where you put the send/return put the Helix effects. The Four Cable Method seems a bit different b/c there is no speaker/cab in this scenario. What am I missing - why wouldn't that work?? Thanks!!

    Hey guys - can you clarify something for me?? Just for kicks I was messing with an amp head that I have and a Rockcrusher Recorder as a load box. 1. So do you have to use the 1/4 out at instrument level to front of amp? Or can you use FX loop 1 at instrument level to front of amp? 2. Then return FX Loop 2 at Line Level?? I've used one FX loop 1 at line level with the whole DT25 workaround (back of the amp power section only - preamp turned off) then using the Rockcrusher as a load box and bringing back in via FX Loop 1 Return at line level. I've had some pretty good stuff with that arrangement. I can't seem to do the same thing as Pete Thorn to work - I'm sure I'm missing something very simple. I guess I just wanted to confirm the only way to do this is to go 1/4 inch out (unbalanced) at instrument level - then from load box back to Helix to FX Return 1 at line level. Not sure then how you would set that up on a particular patch - How would you set up the FX loop blocks?? How would you set the Output?? Especially if I ever used this live I would have to have the end of the signal chain's output to XLR to the PA.

    I usually set the Mix and Feedback and timing as the main parameters. I'm not even sure what Bit Depth does?? I leave headroom, etc. I love the Vintage Delay. I use it a lot. I'm back to using now that I make sure I don't overload the signal. Some of my tones were probably too hot internally. I've just turned down the channel volume on the amp block and that solved the clipping issue. I could use headroom but went this route instead.

    Touch Select

    Here's an update - I've been helped by forum members for years - I hope this helps someone. I decided to try a factory reset and updating the firmware again instead of sending it in for a new footswitch (which would have been covered under warranty). The Line6 Reset Procedure page said to press: 8,9+12. I did that before attempting to reinstall the firmware. The crazy thing is that it started working after I did the factory reset 8,9+12. I never did reinstall the firmware update. I've never had a problem with Line6 updates, etc. They have always gone smoothly for me. I have no idea why this fixed it - anyone know?? Dumb luck?? Or is that factory reset different than the normal 9+10 reset after the updates?? Any ideas??

    Thanks - good to know. I didn't realize that the 'headroom' parameter was added with 2.10.

    Thank you!! I had the same problem. Just that one delay clipped - enough I had to stop using it on some tones. I basically turned down the channel volume on the tones and sure enough it disappeared. I really should pay more attention to the unity gain principles when creating tones.
