  1. how do you know this part? This seems like a ridiculous assertion, tbh.
  2. The difference between the modeling technology between Boss COSM and Helix HX is significant.
  3. The modeling is also far far less sophisticated. So that isn't a surprise. Delay spillover? Fine. You are never getting it in Helix. Jus' sayin'... The only way to do it would be to cut the functionality from 2 paths to 1.
  4. There is also a clear all blocks option.
  5. It's the "face mite" of bugs...
  6. In defense of those who are complaining about this. set up stereo speakers with one speaker 2.24ft further away than the other... it will sound odd. Yes, such an offset can indeed be an issue. I still don't think this is a bug per se.
  7. The idea that this 2ms is "Multiplied" by the other things that are going on in a DAW btw, seems to be complete malarkey to me. This is not a bug.
  8. Normally, I am not an "upgrade right away" guy, but I did with Catalina. It is a GREAT update, very stable, and for me, I'm using mostly apple products, including Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro, iWork, etc. It is working just peachy. I "had to" upgrade as I was going to a new machine, but honestly, apart from some weird stuff from a few people, it seems like the last 3 MacOS updates have actually been really really solid. And, fwiw, you will, if you follow your plan, get 11 or 12 YEARS out of that Mac Pro. Try that with a Windows machine. In my experience, that ain't happening.
  9. Tuner in the editor? When EVERY TIME you use the editor you have the actual unit RIGHT THERE?!?!?! No.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. I had a Phase 100, and the Deluxe Phaser nails it.
  13. Just a thought. De-installing the driver and re-installling the latest might sort that out.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. This is possibly correct. This is not necessarily correct, however. If it's not a drastic difference in level, concentrate on other things.
  21. garbage in... ... ...
  22. Can somebody pin this to the top of every single discussion board in the universe.
  23. The technical term is QOSP. Quantity Of Soiled Pants.
  24. You are still attenuating the full signal, which is not necessarily the best practice for connecting to most FoH and recording equipment.
