  1. Actually this image finally showed me which frequencies EXACTLY to consider during the volume changes I undergo everyday with my helix. pretty helpful ! :)
  2. yep like that thing too. wish there were more bands and more eq settings possible though. Then it would be a piece of cake to recreate something like the inverted fletcher munson curve for the trebles and so on... still great though yep
  3. damn I know this curve, but I didn't think of it! pretty clever to suggest that ;) I mostly play/played smaller venues and quieter rehearsals, but yeah some of the difference could be due to the increase of trebles (and bass) during the increase of volume.
  4. Thanks guys! I already read the linked posts and had a look at the spreadsheet. I will stick to 1M Ohm input like I did before ,yeah. I will adjust everything else so that it sounds good after that. I will keep in mind what effects could sound terrible due to the mismatched input of 1M (mostly fuzzes and delays anyway. ok the screamer is important for me but I sounds good anyway). Do you guys also have the feeling that via most PAs and Monitors the Amps (in a full chain with effects and cabs) in the Helix sound a bit too bright sometimes? Well I have the tone knob I use quite a lot on my guitars, depending on the system I play the Helix over. Of course I adjust the Amp (Treble e.g.) and the effects and EQing so that it sounds good at home. But live sometimes it can be a bit harsh. I know this all sounds wishywashy (since every speaker has a own frequency response, and the room and treatments have huge impact on the overall perception of my presets) but It is just some rough feeling I got about the helix stuff. You share the same view?
  5. The Guitar In-Z is the simulation of the impedance, right? I had most of my presets on 1M Ohm. Most of them were to bright on most of my guitars. But I turned down the tone knob on my guitars to around 50%, then it was fine. An electric engineering friend of mine just told me that 1M Ohm is not a realistic value in the real world. The amp inputs of real amps are not that high. He said they are up to 100k Ohm. I just googled and this article says something different: Impedance Considerations With Electric Guitars The pickups generally used in electric guitars and basses are primarily inductive rather than capacitive (because of the coils used under the strings), and are also highly resistive simply because of the sheer amount of wire involved (typically up to 10kΩ), although different styles and makes of pickup can vary enormously. Since the pick-up presents a relatively high output impedance, it is normal to provide guitar preamp and DI inputs with a hugely high input impedance. A minimum value is typically 470kΩ, but many are over 1MΩ and a few, designed for accepting feeds from magnetic pickups in some acoustic guitars, are rated even higher than this. source: https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/understanding-impedance So know I am really confused. Who is right? What is right? The question to you out there: What impedance do you use at your Helix input? 70k Ohm? 1M Ohm? Auto? And why? Why not use Auto all the time? Or why should I use Auto all the time? What does Auto really do? Is it reliable with all guitars? Thanks and Kind regards ;)
  6. @rd2rk I go into the Mixing Console (X18 or X32 most of the time) with my Helix wet XLR and the 1/4" dry DI out. I have an-ears system that comes out the mixing console of course. Great idea with the MIDI. what is 20'? is that something imperial like the 1/4"? feet I guess, right?
  7. My friend still has the problem. He tried literally everything....
  8. Has anything changed regarding that topic? :D
  9. sorry for that! it was wrong information. The SHIFT swap worked on my old Spider 4 remote control software. For Helix (and Helix native?) it does NOT work unfortunately. Or were there any changes in the meantime? 2 years later.......
  10. Do you guys have any other recommendations regarding splitting and reamping? Here is my signal path (attachment). Should be fine for split recording right? So no matter where I go and play, I can always just send 2 line signals to the mixer/interface and get a clean recording of my Helix wet sound AND a DI dry signal for reamping later. I just need to keep in mind to keep the distance of the 1/4" DI ouput rather short, right? So I don't get to much interferences in the unbalanced cable. What do I need to keep in mind when reamping the DI line signal later on after recording the "live performance"? Cheers
  11. thanks for your answers, guys! yeah the global settings will do the trick. nice to know I can change that as well :) prepared for wet+dry recording at the same time then :D great!
  12. I was wondering if I need a High-Z input for the split signal I want to use for all my presets, so I record the DI guitar simultaneously, together with the processed sound from the Helix. For all my presets I have a A/B split going from the beginning of the chain (so before all the effects/amps/cabs) to the 1/4" output. It should be as dry as it can get then. There is a mono jack-cable plugged in, which goes to the mixer/interface of course then as well. So is the signal on that cable line signal or is it similar to a real high impedence guitar signal? Thanks in advance! Kind regards
  13. sorry this response was meant for another thread where I have problems with the hardware NOT the software
  14. Thanks for the reply. Ah ok, that what the yellow pick means, ok. Those are Factory presets though. Well yes, I logged in. Didn't work still. Uninstalled again and the next time I installed and opened it, it got my account right away without logging in and authorization, which doesn't make any sense whatsoever. I guess the user account control (2 users on one pc) might have something to do with it... This is a really weird bug. In case it happens again, I will write here again... Cheers
  15. Hi, running my Helix Native 1.82 in Reaper v6.01 I added a second Windows user on this Windows 10 machine. After authorizing Helix on the second account I noticed there are small picks beside the presets. What do the yellow picks mean anyway? When I click the preset to use it, the error in the sreenshot attached shows up. (Error Code -1116). Manually I'm still able to use Helix and build a new effectchain. I just can't use the presets. I also did a factory reset, as well as reauthorized it and even reinstalled it. Yesterday with only one Windows account on this machine there had not been any difficulties... Anybody know anything about that error code or the yellow pick icons? Thanks in advance!
