  1. Do you use a external speakers or a soundbar? These cause significant delays, you are better off using speakers directly. I learned this from playing Rocksmith on my TV and XBOX, their forums go over this in detail, but basically the TV has to "process" the incoming sound and then send it out to any external speakers, so the TV's circuit board causes the lag. https://www.reddit.com/r/rocksmith/wiki/lag_guide https://support.ubisoft.com/en-Gb/Article/000063492/Lag-or-latency-between-strumming-the-guitar-and-hearing-the-sound Hope this helps.

  2. Hello, I just got my HX effects and I am loving it thus far, but I am wondering where users can trade their favorites? I purchased the Pasadena pack from the store, but I am more interested in trading or looking at other users Favorites, aka the *.fav files you can download/upload from the software editor? I ask because I got great advice on using the auto-swell for the Van Halen Cathedral patch, I was struggling to get the other swells to work well, and I found the post here that said to use the Legacy swell and it worked great. I am looking for the settings people have used for the EVH Flanger and the EVH Phaser & Chorus? I saved my patch and posted it for the swell/Cathedral patch, I was hoping to get more patches and specific effect modeled after the EVH series? The Pasadena set is great, but it seems like it is tailored toward early EVH, like the Roth era, first 3 albums. This works great, but if I want to play songs from Diver Down or later, the Pasadena tones are not accurate enough for me? I wish Line 6 would sell more packs and list the specific albums (if it is not a copyright issue). The Pasadena collection could also have a footnote called Albums 1-3 if they could not list the names, such as VH1, VH2, W&CF, etc. I would like to see a Pasadena #2 pack (subtitled FW & DD), followed by a Pasadena 3 (again, 1984 thru 5150). Oh yeah, I am a Van Halen but, but I also like most other 80's rock. So, the question is what is the best forum here, or elsewhere, to trade *.fav files? Thanks, Dave

    Auto Swell

    I used the Legacy Auto-volume echo, and it worked good enough for me. I am setting up a patch to play Van Halen's Cathedral off their Diver Down album, and I used several swell pedal so I don't have to roll my volume knob. I plugged my favorite swell pedal in front of the HX so I could quickly A/B the pedal versus the HX effect, and I based my sound for swell of the TC Electronics Crescendo. For reference, I have the sensitivity set at 8 o'clock and the attack is set at 2:30 o'clock. I am going to attach my preset in case anyone want to try it out. IF you just want me settings: Time = 10ms, Feedbk = 12%, Depth = 100% Swell = 40%, Mix = 100%, Level = -1.0dB Trails ON (don't think this matters) I might make a YT vid to show this off, but it works well enough to get through the song. Enjoy! Dave Cathedral.hlx
  4. I just got both the 50 watt combo and the HX effects. I reset the HX to defaults, and the 5150 is basically new open box, so nothing much to change there. I went 4CM and got it working 1st try, I did not have to adjust any levels from line to instrument, etc. It all just worked with the factory HX settings, if that helps. Dave
  5. Same question, I have the 5150III 50 watt combo and I want to change the 3 channels via the HX effects... Thanks, Dave
  6. I just got both of these, the 50 watt combo and the HX Effects. Any update on how to do this? Do we use MIDI, because the amp's footswitch only uses a TS (and not a TRS) cable yet it has 4 switches. Thanks, David
  7. Necro'ing this thread. I own a Firehawk 1500 and it has been a great amp, I plan to keep using it, very versatile and sound great. I too noticed in 2021 that the L6 website does not even list firehawk in the list of products, but since I use my ipad to control tones I figured that was how you had to get tones. I just opened the app and used the search for Cloud tones, and that now seems to have been taken away? This worked last year if I remember, why would they take down the Cloud for products that are still being sold in Guitar center? Line 6 Firehawk FX Guitar Multi-Effects $399
  8. I mistakenly posted the same question in the Firehawk forum, which seems like a similar interface. They have an unofficial tone/patch called BJ Clean 1, which has 4 "wildcard" blocks. So, you cannot make a NEW/blank tone with 4, but you can download BJ Clean 1 and modify it, then save, with 4 wildcard blocks. If we can convert Firehawk patches to Amplifi, then we can also have 4 assignable blocks. Any ideas guys? David
  9. I posted this same ask in the Firehawk section, I wanted the 4th FLEX block. On the Firehawk, which seems similar, you can unofficially get a patch that has 4 Flex blocks from an earlier firmware release, the edit and saves it yourself. If we can convert Firehawk patches, I can try and convert, which will get us 4 flexible blocks. The tone/patch is called "BJ Clean 1" under the Firehawk remote when you search the cloud for tones. David
  10. So I guess with Amplifi, we are limited to 3Flex blocks, or is there a patch for AMplifi like BJ Clean 1? Can we convert Firehawk patches to Amplifi? Thanks, David
  11. OK, I installed the Firehawk remote, and yes, there it was. I thought the patches between Firehawk and Amplifi were compatible? I was able to get the 4 Flex blocks, no problem. Has anyone made a 4 Flex block patch for Amplifi? Anyway to import this patch to Amplifi? I was thinking either the Firehawk 1500 or the Amplifi 150, but if Amplifi is limited to 3 blocks, this is another reason to get the Firehawk. The price difference is huge, but I would get a much better amp with the Firehawk. Thanks, David
  12. I tried again, watch here: https://youtu.be/qOO17Xhwcwk wtf am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help. David
  13. Do I have to be connected to search the cloud? I am not, but I can run the app and mess with tones. When I search the cloud, it does not find BJ clean 1, tried with and without quotes... Just to see if my iPad was the issue, I installed Amplifi Remote on my Android phone, and again, when I search, nothing comes up for BJ Clean 1. If I just search bj, I find the aAOrange tone, and I can find other tones, just no BL Clean 1?
  14. I am being 100% serious, if I can't find the 4 FX block patch, I am not going to buy this amp. I have searched the CLOUD from BJ Clan 1, in and out of quotes, to no avail. This is the only thing holding me back, I have been looking through the app, and I would want to do 4 flex blocks. Anyone know if another patch with 4? Or can someone upload another 4 block patch? Thanks, David I just voted for this, I was vote #21... :(
  15. This is THE $11 converter to use with your pedal board 9v power supply. I like this over other converters because: #1) My multi-power supply has 9v, 12v, and 18v power supplies. So, I can use any of them with this adapter, and it auto-adjusts the input voltage, so if I am not using or have an extra 12v or 18v, I can use that and save my 9v plugs for more common 9v pedals. #2) Some of these buck converters require you to turn a knob to adjust the input or output voltage. This one is plug-n-play. #3) It is rated as waterproof, so if someone spills a drink on it, no worries. #4) It has mounting holes, so I can mount it somewhere and it will not bounce around. #5) the positive and negative are colored, so I do not have to use my volt meter to figure this out when I wire up the 2.5mm end that plugs into my ISO power bar. The only negative, which applies to all of these converters, is that I will have to make 2 wire connections for the 2.5mm end. Not hard, some black electrical tape and I am good to go. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QTJWRFW/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2PMIWMSUTAYGS
