    Helix Guitar Tuner

    Tuner in the editor? When EVERY TIME you use the editor you have the actual unit RIGHT THERE?!?!?! No.

    Best method of setting patches levels to the same volume??

    This also gives me another cool idea. If you could determine 6 parameters that could go to the 6 knobs when you switch to a new preset, all from different blocks if need be, so you could literally bend down and change that gain stage on the fly.

    THIS! A good rule of thumb is, as you add blocks, if you disable the block the volume should not jump very much from the unaffected signal.

    I had a Phase 100, and the Deluxe Phaser nails it.

    Helix Bug Reports

    Just a thought. De-installing the driver and re-installling the latest might sort that out.

    HX Rack and looping?

    MIDI control apps for an iPad might really make your day! Sorry, I don't know the details on them, but they are out there.

    Helix Application is available for download

    Line 6 did EXTENSIVE research and found that pros (their target market for HX products) wanted computer editing WAY more than a tablet. They made the right call.

    You will still need to futz with levels even after you get them "perfect" with meters. I learned way back before I used Helix that my ears and my sound guys ears were way > than any meter.

    Exactly... There are musicians, and then there are measurebaters. Musicians listen to music, measurebaters look at numbers on a screen. The photo world has these people, too. They take ugly photographs but know all the measured specifications of all their lenses. Guys, you don't need the meters. Sorry you think you do. You don't. And if you use them for so-called "leveling", you will really get yourself in trouble in an actual live environment.

    You don't need this if you gain-stage properly. If you boost every block a few dB you can create problems eventually, but it's hard. Most of the "clipping" issues I hear about is from people forgetting that pesky "headroom" parameter in their delays or some such.

    Helix large volume knob

    Or you can worry less about measurements and just plug stuff in and see if it works and how it sounds. There's a LOT of headroom in Helix. If your boost pedal overloads the input, I would think that turning on the pad would do it. If your clean boost overloads the input with the pad on, GOOD LORD MAN, either get a different clean boost or turn it the **** down.

    Helix large volume knob

    This is possibly correct. This is not necessarily correct, however. If it's not a drastic difference in level, concentrate on other things.
