  1. Okay OP and Sparky and the rest of you here.I spent some quality time where I work today with a Powercab Plus and my Helix Stomp. IT KILLS! Unless you are a totally green(newb)) or a barely started guitar lessons player this thing kills!AITR and all points in between. Please folks be responsible with your posts here re: L6 products. For the most part many of you are clueless and ignorant. This is a marvelous product made for those who have chosen to use modelers. I am a seasoned working pro player and this thing is just what I have asked for! Thank you L6! you guys who think it suxx need some lessons. I am an instructor at GC and I can help you with that lol!

    Helix Firmware 2.80

    After selling my beloved JTV69 because its internal batteries go into protect when outside in 100 plus degree weather (I live in a very hit climate)and my HD500 with it I have not been here in quite a while. I picked up the little Relay G10s for a poolside resort gig I have over the summer a couple days ago.I have used many many Line 6 amps /effects and still use a G50 wireless(killer unit!) a lot.I have been considering a Helix LT to replace my GT100.I also have been teaching at a GC here in central California for the last two and a half years so I have been getting a daily dose of peoples(esp musicians) ridiculous demands of companies that make the gear we love. Modeling gear esp is not a bazzilion dollar business. Profitable sure but not an Amazon bonanza of bloated profits. I am very put off by some of the comments here directed at the guys representing L6. What a bunch of impatient petulant silly children who are posting these things.Some of you need to work on your chops and your attitude. Have some class. L6 is a great company and we are lucky to have them. I have used the software going back to my days of commercials and Amp Farm. I think a new Gibson(the horror) and a Helix LT I shall purchase after summer is over lol! You younger players have no idea how ez things are for guitar players these days! But uh please carry on while I approach the backyard beer and BBQ.Happy 4th of July to DI and Frank Richotte and everyone here at Line 6!

    Replacement for HD300 power supply???

    yup esp for Line 6 buy the right one.One of the reason I keep my Boss GT100/ME80 and GR55 is I can power all of them with a One Spot.

    Picked up a powered speaker for my hd500x

    Harbinger stuff is not made for this application. Altos are ok.I use 2 QSC K10.2s .Beautiful speakers and worth every cent I paid for them.One used K8 will kill that Harbinger dead.
  5. I am one who really likes my JTV69.It has been my go to for live gigging 2/3 times a week for the last couple of years.I started using coated Elixir stings on it a year ago and noticed an overall improvement in the modeling. As far as it being a cheapo Asian guitar.You can keep your lifeless PRS guitars.In passive mode my stock JTV is one of the best super strats I have ever owned .
  6. Had to give the 1/4 in output jack on my JTV69 a thorough cleaning to fix the low mag output problem. Wet the end of a 1/4 in plug with contact cleaner and insert/ remove it 10 times then do it again. I think I did it three times total.No problems for two weeks of heavy live gigging.
  7. I am often surprised lately at how killer the tones of my Variax 500 are and how the little battery pack works with rechargeable AAs such a great little utility guitar!The JTV on the other hand has big boy playability and features along with the modeling tones.Just not in any kind of extreme weather lol!
  8. I did a gig in 100 plus degree heat outside yesterday and both my charged batteries went into protect and would not function.As soon as it cooled off they both showed 100 per cent.No big deal as the rest of the guitar is great for all styles but I had never used it out in the heat.Now I know lol!
  9. The only strange thing my JTV69 does is if it sits for a month the mag pups wont output sound while the modeled tones will.Contact cleaner sprayed lightly on the pickup selector fixes it.Very odd.
  10. After my beautiful JTV 69 sits unplayed for a while only the modeling side of things will work.The mag pups dont come on.Cleaning the output jack gently with contact cleaner seems to help but I wonder if its the modeling switch?Going to be playing it a little more in the next couple months and see how it goes. That guitar killed last night through a DSL15 head and 4x12 cab with a Boss GT100 in front of it.

    [HD500X] to foh and cab simultaneously

    I do this sometimes with a Palmer DI cab sim/ ADA cab sim or Atomic Ampli- Firebox. 1/4 out from HD500 to Cab Simulator.1/4 in no cab to my amp from cab sim unit di for monitoring guitar.XLR from cab sim unit to FOH mixer.Then I can turn my amp up or down all I want without blowing the front of house mix.

    IR Impulse Response -How to use with the POD HD?

    The Palmer Junction and ADA cab simulators dont use IRs and sound great with my HD500/GT100/Tech 21 Fly Rigs etc...
  13. I am trying 10-46 instead of 9-42 my JTV had on it when I got it.Acoustically it already sounds better.
  14. My Eagles Tribute “The Last Resort†debuted yesterday at a local venue /winery for almost 500 people.My JTV/HD500 worked perfectly.Sat right in the mix and performed LP P90s/ Tele/Strat/Acoustic 6-12 string and banjo duties. Worth every cent and every hour of time it took to dial it in.The other two guitarists are using pedals-tube amps and my tones were more Eagles like than theirs were.
  15. I use a JTV69 in my Eagles Tribute.I had to lower all string volumes and patch volumes to get the models working correctly.IMHO maxing them makes all the plinks planks plunks etc... worse.And I lowered the mags height as well.For my low gain Eagles material the guitar works great and I switch back and forth between mags/ models when appropriate. I bought the guitar specifically for this purpose and it works very well for when I dont want to bring a tele/ LP/ acoustic etc...to one of these gigs.I have found though it sounds better through my tube amps ( like everything else does) but still does a credible job through my HD500/ Alto powered speakers. I had to stick with it a long while to figure it out.And I know you have done that.Maybe it just wont work for you.
