    Syncing Helix Floor with Helix Native in FL Studio

    So I found an Ideascale campaign for this suggestion by Eric R. Fischer here. It was two years ago that he made the suggestion, but only a handful of folks showed interest by voting it up. Currently, the status shows "in review." I'm hoping that at least in this thread more people will support it. Not to mention the guy articulated pretty well some decent reasons why this should be a thing.

    Thanks for sharing this. I've gone ahead and created an account here at https://line6.ideascale.com/a/ideas/top. Just waiting for moderator approval. I also found the forum thread https://line6.com/support/topic/14497-helix-ideascale-community-submissions/. I'll search through it to see if I can vote it up like you suggested. Yea, I agree that would definitely help with that. Like anything else though, it's always good to have options--especially cheap/free ones. I really hope so. In the mean time, I'm going to see what I can do and post it here if I figure it out.

    Syncing Helix Floor with Helix Native in FL Studio

    Alright, I understand. I'm still surprised about this considering how much each of these things cost... That type of functionality should have been at least second in the priority list given the path digital music production has been following these last few decades. In any case, I've come up with a band-aid for now. Since I can't get HX Edit with all of it's interactivity with my Helix Floor into FL Studio as a plugin, I came across a script that keeps the HX Edit application on top of all of my other Windows (including FL Studio). It's called "always-on-top". It's an AutoHotKey script that runs in the background in the notification area taskbar. You just click on the application that you want in focus, and then press the Ctrl + Space keys together to activate the 'stay on top of all other windows' feature. I wanted to run only one USB cable to my computer, but given how Helix Native works currently, I ended up moving my guitar's 1/4" TS cable from the front input of my Focusrite 18i8 to the Guitar In of the Helix Floor. Then I used the XLR Outs on the Helix Floor and routed them back to the 1st and 2nd front-side inputs on the Focusrite 18i8. Both input ports on the Focusrite are set to "instrument" via Focusrite Control and are at 50% volume via the physical knobs above. I plan on controlling any additional volume needs via the large volume knob on the Helix Floor or FL Studio. The only other change I've made at this point in FL Studio is enabling the Line 6 Helix MIDI Output "Send master sync" and setting the Port number to 1 (or whatever you set your device to use in the Helix Floor). Hopefully this helps someone else. I sincerely hope that Line 6 implements a DAW capable version of HX Edit... Is there a product improvement suggestion portal that anyone is aware of? In researching this more, I saw a few other users with the same concerns.

    Ok, with that said, can HX Edit be loaded into a DAW? I was looking for a VST file and have been unable to locate one. That should help with some of my issues currently.

    Not anymore. They had the Guitar Rig Kontrol and it worked well with the Guitar Rig Player. I migrated from it to the Helix thinking that Line 6 had improved upon what Native Instruments started in all aspects. But, as I mentioned in my first post, I'm seeing a few areas that aren't currently meeting my needs at this time...

    Hey Zolko60, thanks for taking the time to reply, but to answer your last question: no, I can't say that it is fair. Most of what I'm about to say next is purely my opinion, but a common sense approach to the application of similar products on the market already. It doesn't make much sense to me to have an application like HX Edit that can interact with the hardware real-time in both directions but not in the plugin that mirrors that same applications interface. Guitar Rig operates very much like the Helix LT markets itself: an audio digital signal processor (which I've seen it successfully used as) and a stand alone performing product. It just falls short (at least as of my current understanding) at interacting with Helix Native. Why have two applications that look almost identical, HX Edit and Helix Native, and not provide them with the same level of interactivity? I'm sure you can see where I'm coming from at this angle, right?
  7. Hello, I'm new here. I was hoping to get some help with my Helix Native install and Helix Floor pedal. I just discovered HX Edit this afternoon and very much enjoyed how both the pedal and the software are synced. I was surprised and disappointed to find that this same configuration didn't port over to Helix Native on launch. I came from a Guitar Rig setup where the pedal could navigate and interact with the plugin. I didn't put much effort into that pedal, so I was kind of expecting the same results. Can anyone tell me how make Helix Native sync up like HX Edit does in FL Studio with my Helix Floor pedal? Thank you kindly for your help!
