  1. The Manual is live: http://line6.com/data/6/0a06439cb91a5609df67966ca/application/pdf/Helix%20Owners%20Manual%20(REV%20B)%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20B%20).pdf
  2. One more day of summer! Not much time left to announce a shipping date if they're still aiming for an "end of summer" release.

  4. There still hasn't been an official date announcement yet. So no, it's not answered. Haha
  5. DI just said on TGP that "we're closer than I thought." http://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/line6-helix.1586637/page-381#post-20596862
  6. DI said on the gear page that their European warehouses just received the units, and that they're just waiting on the firmware to finish before putting it in the units via flash drive.
  7. I preorderd from Sweetwater August 2nd and haven't gotten any emails or calls about a delay. I'm still trusting DI that they're still on schedule for end of summer. He said he would let us know if the date slips.
  8. I think they're showing off how good it is because they know how bad it was in the hd500.
  9. My Sweetwater rep said that they're expecting to get thier first shipment in the middle of September, so 9/11 doesn't seem too far off.
  10. For those who have tried the Helix, how good is the dmm model? It's pretty tough to get it right because every dmm is different, and they all have their unique tonal character. I liked the dmm model in the hd500, but I hope it is even better in the helix, since they have said that they modeled the actual bucket brigade chips in the delay pedals. I have the zoom g3 right now and am missing the memory man from the hd500 that I sold. It's a key part in the U2 stuff that I play.
  11. I'd love to hear this cranked up ac30 type tone in the helix. From what I've heard from the clean ac30 clips so far, I might be able to get something close to this.
  12. Nice. Can it also act like a preamp to drive the amp harder?
  13. Is there a proper deluxe memory man model like in the hd500? Is that what mod/chorus echo is, or is that just a digital delay with mod?
  14. If is an aux or mp3 in you could plug it into there also.
