    I've had mine since a few months after launch with daily use, transporting 3-5 days a week on a pedalboard to rehearsal and shows, and haven't had an issue.

    That being said, if you rely on your gear for your paycheck and you're using it everyday and traveling, you need to have a backup with all your settings update alongside your main unit. Anything less would be irresponsible.

    Thanks your your respone, sounds great, do you have a stomp or a floor?

     

    yeah, I always keep a little preamp and cabsim in my pocket as a backup! Luckily never needes it but would get me through the gig.


  2. The HX Stomp had broken outputs where I was just getting noise and the HX Effects had a faulty footswitch which caused the unit to freeze, but I am still not giving up on line6 since I hear so many great things!

     

    thanks a lot!


  3. Hey there!

    so I wanted to ask, what are your experiences in the long run with the helix, especially in professional use/touring?

    Right now I am a Kemper + pedalboard player as well as the Boss GT 1000, but never got quite statisfied. But having tried the helix more recently I was very happy with the sounds I got as well as the flexibility.

    Since I am professionally gigging musician my question is:

    Did you have any major issues, freezing, parts breaking, errors during shows, total dropouts etc.

    I had a HX Stomp and a HX Effects, both times I had the bad luck of a faulty unit. Gear failure just must not happen for me.

    So what are the opinions on the helix of the touring musicians out here, since the helix has been out for a few years? (Sound, reliability, build quality) :)

    Weird. No I do not have the buzz.

     

    Before you open a support ticket I would try rolling back the update and then reinstalling it. 

     

    already tried that, it is still there, on all outputs, amp and speaker units. maybe its a deffective unit. I will return it.


  5. so I recently got a hx stomp, tried it out, everything was working fine and it was dead silent, then I updated to the new firmware and all of a sudden got this buzz noise (its attachedto this post). it goes away after some time, but comes back. I also tried different power supplies and outlets , its always the same result, does anybody else have this problem, it seems like a software issue, since it was working fine before doing the update.
