    Is there an auto-wah?

    There's an envelope flanger, I think it's the dynamix flanger. There's no envelope controller that has an ability to operate on an arbitrary block. Wish there was though.

    Helix/HX 2.82 Out

    Didn't see it mentioned in the release notes, but It appears they fixed the LFO reset problem. HX Edit still has a repeatable disconnect problem under certain circumstances when using Helix's midi over usb, but not when using an alternative usb-to-midi cable going to Helix's midi ports.
  4. Unsure, perhaps not. I record to Reaper using Helix's ASIO drivers, but I don't use Helix as the system soundcard, which I have disabled for both playback and recording. This conflicts with your second statement above. I have another device acting as the system soundcard and Helix's spdif output is connected to this, then to the speakers/headphones. The detail I just realized that might shed light on possible confusion is that I'm using Helix Floor, not Stomp. Is USB functionality really different between these devices?
  5. The second statement doesn't seem correct. Shouldn't it be, Helix can be used to record directly to DAW regardless of whether Helix is the sound card?

    Helix Bug Reports

    I can confirm that LFO reset no longer works on 2.81.0, Helix Floor. I use CC64 sent from Reaper rather than using the physical TAP switch.

    Nice. Also like the song image. It's very interesting.

    Dimash Kudaibergen. Anyone come across this anomalous vocalist/musical artist? The combination of him and Igor Krutoy is entirely unique.

    Should us "hobbyists" be doing so many updates?

    If you could say, I would be interested to know what the general cause is of a truly bricked device?

    No sound over SPDIF after startup

    I'm on 2.81. Not sure about your problem specifically, but I've noticed something that seems related. I use the spdif output, and sometimes when I turn helix on, there is no output. Unplugging and plugging the spdif cable from helix or going into the global menu and toggling the digital output from spdif to aes/ebu and back gets output.

    HX Stomp 2.81 links broken?

    I get that error when using firefox, not other browsers.

    Harsh crackling noise after palm mute

    If your guitar is in the vicinity of your computer, that could be a significant source. I recently went through this same experience and the thing that minimized it the most, to acceptable levels, was turning off c-states and speedstep in the computer's bios. Can't recall, but there were also some other obscure settings I changed that might have made a very small difference. The unwanted noise is still there, but I have to move the guitar to within ~30cm of the computer to really notice it anymore. Before I could be a couple meters away before it started to disappear. It's amazing how much stuff emits radiation that the guitar pickups pickup. Some things can even be picked up by the unplugged end of the guitar cable. But most things have to be about 10cm from the pickups though. From a laser mouse, backlit keyboard, monitor, helix itself and it's screen and scribble strips, power outlets, routers, etc. And each thing has it's own audio characteristics, in particular the mouse and keyboard.
  14. That's true, but the op had to take steps (I did as well), to work around an underlying problem that's still there. That's all.
  15. At the risk of stating the obvious, the problem really isn't solved. There is an underlying problem with the way the hardware is communicating with a computer system over usb, and may be manifesting in ways other than the update process.
