    Convert Signal from Balanced to Unbalnced

    Thanks Karl! I do have my Stomp connected to my PC thorugh USB and the PC connected to my Denon though HDMI. This allows the Stomp to be the audio source for the PC for all Windows audio , but I wasn't aware that the Stomps' Guitar signal will playback live? Am I missing something?

    Convert Signal from Balanced to Unbalnced

    Thanks for your opinion Phil. I think you may be right. I still miss the Digital Out.
  3. Hello, I am running the HX Stomp outputs to my Denon power amp on the other side of my room. Since it’s about a 16ft run, there is quite a bit of noise/interference. I tried using an Analog to Digtal converter to run the signal the long distance. Noise was reduced, but I felt the extra A/D conversion wasn’t good. Too bad they didn’t include a Digital Out on the Stomp. It’s the only output connection I miss from my previous HD500X. I was thinking that since the HX Stomp uses Balanced Outputs, I could run balanced cables for the 16ft run, then at the end of the run, covert the Balanced signal to an Unbalanced signal to plug into my Denon power amp with a short cable. I know direct boxes can take a Balanced signal and covert into a Balanced signal. Are there boxes that can do the opposite? Convert Balanced into Unbalanced? Preferably with a RCA jack output? Thanks!!

    M5 - Are They All Faulty?!

    Thanks for the reply! I am using the power supply provided by Line 6 with the M5. You make a good point. That's what I thought as well. Then I bought a new one with the same issue as my old one. Going to try another unit. Waiting for it to deliver. There is obviously some percentage that is affected by this issue though. I really hope I find a working unit. There is nothing that is midi controlled, small and affordable like the M5 that I know of.

    M5 - Are They All Faulty?!

    Hello, I have had my M5 for a few years now. It has the fault where upon boot up, the screen will flash. I have tried the suggestions: sand paint off around the screw holes, use unpainted screws etc. It still has the fault. I have to plug in the power multiple times to get it work. I live with it. Yesterday, I bought a new M5 for use in a 2nd rig. IT HAS THE SAME ISSUE! I really like the M5. It does exactly what I need. I don't want to look at another pedal from another manufacturer. Are the majority (or even all) the M5s faulty?! Thanks in advance.

    Helix Ideascale Community Submissions

    I would like to please recommend the ability to save a preset's inactive effect's setting in the HX Edit software and the Helix hardware. I use the HX Stomp, but if implemented in HX Edit and other hardware, it would be useful for all Helix products. I have effect's units that save their settings for inactive effects for each block. This is useful with limited effect's blocks. You can for example, easily swap a Reverb that is active in a block with an inactive delay from the same block. The inactive delay could have saved settings that you previously adjusted. This makes it easy to swap an effect in the same block without having to adjust settings each time. Especially useful for the limit of 6 blocks on the HX Stomp, but useful regardless of how many blocks. Currently, if you swap out your active effect in a block with a new effect, the previous effect's setting reverts to default settings. If you make the previous effect active again in the block, you have to adjust all its setting again. Thanks Line 6! Really enjoying this latest generation of your products!

    HX Stomp Midi CC Auto Engage Wah?!

    Got it. Thanks again Phil! Although, now I am thinking about using my spare Dunlop Crybaby to save using up a block. At least I have the option now. You have been a great help!

    HX Stomp Midi CC Auto Engage Wah?!

    Phil_m, Thanks a lot man for taking the time to help me, and knowing your mongoses from mooses! Yes, I have the Moongose. I got it to work as you suggested, by assigning EXP 1 of the Mongoose to CC 1 to mimic EXP 1 of the Stomp. Even though the pedal position works correctly, now when I set the percentage of travel to 5% before auto engaging, I get the reverse of the expected result. Wah is on at 0 - 5% and off 6 - 95%? Any ideas please? Thanks again!

    HX Stomp Midi CC Auto Engage Wah?!

    For the HX Stomp, I see that there is the following setting to auto-engage the wah block with an expression pedal: Bypass assign – Switch Types – FS1, FS2, FS3, EXP1, EXP2 You can then set the percentage of travel before engaging the wah as well at the delay time to engage. I use an MAudio EX-P Expression Pedal that is plugged in to the EXP slot of a Tech 21 Midi Moose. The Expression pedal is controlling the wah on Midi CC 80. You can see my dilemma... Switch Types – FS1, FS2, FS3, EXP1, EXP2 with NO OPTION FOR MIDI CC as the switch type?! Am I missing something? I love this unit. I would really like to get this working. I can't plug the MAudio pedal directly into the Exp 1 input of the HX Stomp as there is a compatibility issue getting a full travel to 0 percent. Matbe someone has a solution to that? Thanks in advance!!! If there is no solution, maybe Line 6 could add Midi CCs to the Bypass Switch option menu in an update.

    Ignore Pedal Position During Patch Change HD500X

    You are correct Hurghancio that there is always some trade off either way. To me though in my use ignoring the pedal is the lesser of 2 evils. It does make a difference. Let me use my example, but this time go from a patch that has pedal set as a Whammy 2 Octaves up to a patch that has the pedal set as master volume. You are using the Whammy patch doing your best Tom Morello :) and you complete the solo with pedal in the full back position. You now switch to your rhythm patch that has the pedal set as master volume. You have no sound as the pedal is in the back position. You need push the pedal forward and there was a time where you had no sound! Now, if you have an ignore pedal feature: You switch from the Whammy preset into your rhythm preset with the pedal in the full back position. The rhythm preset was saved with a master volume of 95% and the pedal was ignored when you switch patches. There was no noticeable volume drop as you did not have to set the pedal forward. Yes, when you want to use the pedal in this rhythm patch for the first time to do some volume swells you will have the pedal in the full back position, and the volume will drop. To me though this is the lesser evil of 2 options. So, I know this is not an issue for everyone. I am also just using one scenario of many possibilities. The fact is this option is available on many other devices, and it would be nice as option on the HD500 so we have a choice. Cheers :)

    Ignore Pedal Position During Patch Change HD500X

    @dbagchee. Thanks for the suggestion, but I like to be able to switch a patch and not have to press anything else. Kind of the purpose of this kind of devices. Not having to the dance live. @Rewolf48. Yup. As I mentioned, I can see how some would want the pedal to behave as it is. It would be nice to have a global option to chose whether to ignore, or not. Line 6, have a look at the TC Electronic G-Major manual. They have the option. I would think that this is possible as a software update.

    Ignore Pedal Position During Patch Change HD500X

    Actually never heard that expression before. I just goggled it though, and I sure can use that expression multiple times a day lol.

    Ignore Pedal Position During Patch Change HD500X

    Thanks for the suggestion. Moving the pedal forward to go lower would be counter intuitive though. Also, I just mentioned 1 example, but there are many more I can think of. I kind of figured this is not possible. Thankfully I use my HD500X at home only right now, and I love it for that purpose. I think not having this option is not very pro like in a live setting. Line 6, perhaps you can update via software. Thanks again.
  15. Sorry if this has been discussed. I bet it has, but I could not find anything using search. It seems there is no option for the HD500X to ignore the expression pedal when switching patches, and only activate the pedal when it's depressed. While I can see people preferring it this way, it would be nice to have the option to ignore. Options are always good. My G-Major has this as an option. Am I missing something and perhaps it's possible to ignore the pedal position until the pedal is moved? If not, can we get it in an update please? If I am on a patch that uses my expression pedal as the volume, I may have the pedal all the way forward at max volume while using the patch. I now switch to a patch that uses the expression pedal to control pitch/whammy. Well, since the pedal is all the way forward when I switched patches, the pitch effect kicks in, and my sound is 2 octaves up per the pedal position. I must manually move the pedal all the way back to get no whammy effect. This is useless in a live situation, and really a pain playing at home. Thanks for any help!
