  1. 1) Yes, just no amps 2) Not sure, but I think so. Stomp has 8 Blocks, HXFX has 9 3) Yes, via MIDI 4) Don't know what you mean by "Exp Outs", but it can be done via MIDI 5) Yes, via MIDI 6) If you're using it in an FX Loop of a Floor, and don't need amps, none that I can see, and one less block 7) If you're using it in an FX Loop of a Floor, and the floor connected to the amp in 4cm, that's what you're doing. Keep in mind that each FX Loop in the total signal chain adds 2-3ms of latency. Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean that you should.
  2. Export the Stomp presets to a folder on your computer. Import those presets into the Floor.
  3. Update the HW directly from HX Edit. just click the little gear thingy in the lower left corner.
  4. AFAIK, all of the Strymon effects have MIDI THRU. No additional distribution box is needed. Just set each Strymon effect to a different MIDI Channel and use CommandCenter to assign the relevant commands to InstantCommands on the appropriate channels. Don't forget to disable MIDI PC SEND in Global Settings/MIDI to prevent Helix sending the default PC# when a preset loads. EDIT: same goes for other MIDI functions/Footswitches/Exp pedals - just assign them to the appropriate channels.
  5. Unless the amp is designed with a built-in load box (Suhr has one of these), the only way to get the PowerAmp into the signal chain is with an external Reactive Load box (Suhr has one of these too), taking the Line Out from the load box back to a Helix Return.
  6. Disable PC Tx in both the HXFX and Stomp.It shouldn't be necessary on the Stomp if there's no connection from STOMP MIDI OUT to HXFX MIDI IN. That prevents both units from sending the default PC# when a preset loads on either. You're wanting to change the Stomp preset from the HXFX when the HXFX preset loads. Yes? In Command Center on HXFX, set Instant Command (the lightning bolt) 1 to the PC# corresponding to the preset you want loaded on the Stomp. When you select the preset on HXFX, IC1 sends the PC# you configured in IC1 to the Stomp. If you want different Stomp presets to load via Snapshots on the HXFX, set different PC#s in IC1 for each Snapshot. There's no reason you'd need to double press the footswitch on the HXFX. If that is still happening, you've either got a bad footswitch or Command Center is still not configured correctly. Get a MIDI Monitor such as MIDIOX (free) and watch what exactly is being sent from the HXFX when you load a preset. This can be done over USB, so no need to disconnect the 5 pin DIN from HXFX MIDI OUT to STOMP MIDI IN. You shouldn't need the STOMP to HXFX connection at all in the configuration you're describing. Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're trying to do?
  7. By "Professional Grade" I'm assuming an i7. I'm also going to assume that you've at least checked the optimizations I mentioned, especially the processor setting, as opposed to just dismissing them because "other stuff runs". That done, uninstall Native with the provided uninstaller. Run a Registry checker to make sure there's no leftover related entries or other problems. I use CCleaner FREE version. Then reboot. Download a fresh copy of Native 3.0 and re-install. Open a NEW Project in LIVE, with just one track for Native. If you still get the error, just for giggles, try a different DAW. Reaper has an unlimited trial. If you get the same error in Reaper, I really don't know at that point. I've established that Native 3.0 runs fine on much lesser and older HW, and in multiple DAWs.. Maybe check with Ableton support (and the forum) in case they've seen this before? Good Luck!
  8. Attach a copy of the preset you're using and we can test it on our Stomps.
  9. I'm now up to 9 tracks (I named the project "Amp Sim Playground" :-) ) - 3 amp sims - Native 3.0, Amplitube 4, TH3 EZDrummer and EZKeys That's 5 VSTs and 3 MIDI tracks feeding the amp sims All tracks RECORD ENABLED Processor is holding steady at under 30% I'm playing thru all 3 amp sims with their JCM800 versions - sounds MASSIVE! Microsoft antivirus is ON, and wireless is ON (two no-no s for optimization). I also have open Paint (working on a problem for somebody else), Opera, HX Edit and the full Office version of Outlook. More no-no s for optimization. I come back to LIVE every so often to see if it's crashed. I can't get it to crash. Again, this is an ancient i5 laptop with only 8gb RAM. I'm using LIVE 10 LITE (I only get 8 tracks), but I can do the same configuration and more with Reaper or Cakewalk. Suggestions: Check your optimizations. I have NO startup programs running. Power, sounds and screen effects set to Max Performance - not even wallpaper. Processor optimized for Background Processes.
  10. Just checked back, it's down to 20-22%, same as Amplitube.
  11. Is there something in particular that you're doing when it crashes? I just loaded up LIVE 10 Lite with Native 3.0 (LIVE 10 doesn't support VST3), linked a MIDI controller, and it's working fine. It IS, however, showing 25%+ processor usage, which is WAY more than Reaper (8-10%), which is strange, Amplitube 4 shows around 22%, which is consistent with using somewhat less processor in Reaper. Depending what else you're doing in LIVE, it could just be overloading the processor. The machine I'm testing this on is an ancient Gateway i5 with only 8gb memory, and so far, just Native 3.0 and the MIDI track, no crashes. I'll leave it running a while to see what happens, but so far, so good.
  12. Wrong forum. This is where you go if you're serious about suggestions for changes and improvements: https://line6.ideascale.com/a/index Before posting a new idea, please search to see if it's already been proposed. If 100 people vote on the same idea presented 20 different ways, it looks like only 5 people care about it! Also, post your ideas one at a time. I for one NEVER vote for multple combined suggestions.

  14. The Hi Freq Trim sets the level of the signal sent to the Hi Freq Driver component in the speaker. It has no effect on the tone through the output jack. Yes, I tested it to be sure. For that you'd use the High and Low cut sliders or, live, the High and Low Cut settings on the Panel controls. Unfortunately for your needs, those are not Global, they're per preset. Until L6 changes things to allow us to use the Global EQ on the Digital outs, the best you can do is use the 1/4" Outs and, if you have good quality studio headphones, do the initial presets on the phones, then see how it translates to the PC. You'll need to get it up to at least 85db to get to the low end of the Fletcher-Munson curve but, once you've done one or two presets, you'll have a good idea what the Global EQ settings you'll generally need are. Keep in mind that you'll be configuring your presets for room you're in, and that'll all go out the window when you get to the gig. That's actually what the Global EQ is intended for. Also, as for the signal from the PC to FOH, the sound crew, if they're any good, will take care of that, and until you're THE BIG DEAL, likely regardless of any input from you!

    Power Cabs?

    I'm in Denver but, thanks anyway, if I decide to cut loose with my savings it'll be for a PC212. If you're in Colorado you can probably get top $ for it, nobody's got them in the stores, and I've only ever seen two on CL, including the one I bought a year ago for $475. Of course, that could be because nobody wants to go all out digital around here. We often have bears, cougars, elk and deer running loose in the streets...... OTOH, when I sold my HD500X, it sold the same day I listed it, so who knows. It's been so long since I've been out to see a band I don't have any idea who's using what these days.
