    I would start with reading the manual from the Moog site: MF-105M MuRF Manual
  2. So I played around with something fun the other day that I thought I would share in case others could use it and not thought of it. I bought an EHX Attack Decay. The pedal has an effects loop built into it for adding effects to the envelope effect without changing the through signal. I set the device up so that it's in and out was in effects loop 1 on the Helix and then out wired the pedals effects loop into effects loop 3 on the Helix. I assigned effects loop 1 to path A in the Helix, which also had a distortion block, amp/cab block, reverb and delay. Then I assigned the input of path B to return 3 and the out of path B to send 3/4. Then I dropped different effects into path B to have them in the effects loop of the EXH pedal. This concept would work great for things like the Timeline where you can put effects into the repeats through a effects loop. The only thing that I wish could be done different would be to not loose the use of effects loop for in order to set the output of B to send 3. I am guessing I could get fancier with the routing to make that work...maybe setting input of path 1B to something else and then panning the outputs of 3/4 to left and right.... Anyone else played with this idea?
  3. I just added this idea scale and hope maybe it could be useful for other users as well. Here is the concept and verbiage I added to the idea scale item and below that a link to it: I think it would be really helpful for people that use an outboard pedal in an effects loop to be able to add knobs and switches to the effects loop block, per preset. In my case, I use a fuzzgod 2 in a loop and I have to tweak it per amp model I am running it into. It would be nice if I could add parameters to the effects block that would represent the knobs and switches on my fuzzgod pedal. I could set the value of those to match the physical pedals settings and save it to the preset. Then when I pull up a preset, I know where to set the knobs on the physical pedal. In addition if the outboard pedal has mid control, you could have the knobs on the Hx product actually control the parameters on the physical pedal and save the setting per preset so that the physical pedal is adjust on preset load. I know you can do that with PC messages now, but this would be a layer deeper. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Ability-to-define-knobs-on-effects-loop-block-for-pedal-settings/951850-23508

    HX Stomp midi power for Midi Solutions Thru

    Thanks for the info. I will test the voltage first and see if it is putting out the 5 volts. I have a really small pedalbaord that I am putting the HX stomp on, so the larger 5 port midi project you sent may not have enough space under the board. But, I will look into that as a possibility, I build pedals for fun, so I can handle the iron part okay. Thanks again for the reply!
  5. I am setting up a pedal board centered around the HX Stomp and a Pig Tronix Infinity looper. I will be sending clock to the HX and Looper from an Electribe. I also need to send pc messages from the HX to my power cab for changing speakers. I am planning on Electribe to HX to Looper. The looper only has midi in and so I would not be able to get midi back out to the Powercab. I was thinking of putting a Midi solutions thru box after the HX midi out and send one to the looper and the other to the powercab. Does anyone happen to have one of these Midi-Thru and an HX stomp? If so, could you see if the HX stomp will power the midi device? Or maybe someone has tried to send midi power to another device from the stomp? I just would rather not by the midi thru to find out it does not work. Thanks! Salty
  6. Oh cool, Phil-m beat me too. I suspected it would be the same. Also good to hear that there are plenty of effects left available dsp wise.
  7. I have a full Helix and a stomp, if you want to send me over a list of the exact blocks you used, I can tell you if it would have worked in the helix in one path without running out of dsp. Cause, now I am curious about that as well. I can get a lot of stuff into one path on the Helix without hitting the dsp limit.

    **SOLVED** HX Glitching in Stomp Mode

    Doh! I returned my first one when that started happening, after discussing it with Sweetwater support and sending them a video of it happening. Guess I need to wash my hand before touching it next time. :P
  9. I would probably just copy the preset with the amp+cab block into a new preset naming it PC-Name or something and replace the amp+cab block with just an amp block.

    Helix + Powercab bass response

    Hey there, Hoping maybe someone else has experienced this and found a solution for it. Last year I built myself a Princeton reverb, but put it in a little taller cab to make a 12" fit it easily. I put a cannabis rex speaker in the amp and love it a lot. So of course when I got the power cab to add to my already owned Helix, I tried to get as close as I could to the sound of my Princeton using the speaker models in the Powercab that do not have a mic in front of them. Both the Princeton and Powercab are tilted back on their legs and have their back's facing the wall. In the Helix, I have tried both the Twin and Deluxe reverb models. The problem I am hearing is that the Helix + Powercab has no where near the low end of the real amp, despite the speaker model I choose. I have the volumes the same. I tried sticking an EQ after the amp in the Helix to bring the low end up some, but it still did not seem to really change much. Am I missing something? I kind of expected the closed back powercab to have more low end than the open back princeton from the start. Don't get me wrong, the powercab still sounds great and if I am playing with others, I am sure I will not miss the low end as it would be covered by the bass, but playing home alone, I really like the fuller sound that the low end adds. Thanks, Salty

    PowerCab 112 or Plus?

    The possibility of future upgrades on the plus model is what sold me on it. The standard does not allow for future upgrades.

    Powercab with pedals?

    I use mine sometimes with a Tech 21 liverpool and a tech 21 british and it sounds great! But like Revans says, without some sort of preamp style EQ, the sound might be a bit fizzy and harsh just with regular pedals straight in. But then again, maybe you discover just the sound you were looking for. :)

    Powercab standard firmware able to be updated?

    It was my understanding, when I was researching which to buy, that the standard will not be available to be updated. It will not be able to get new speaker simulations or enhancements to the firmware itself. I bought the plus and could not be happier with it! It works great with my helix, but I also play with a tech 21 character series British and Liver Pool in front of it and they sound amazing through it, with their speaker defeat switch engaged.

    2.6 Industrial Fuzz bug?

    Hey HonestOpinion, I was using it as the first effect block in the chain with impedance set to auto. In the past I knew to expect a darker tone when the pedal was off, but never experienced the super dramatic volume drop I am now experiencing. I can toggle the impedance to see if that corrects the volume drop, but it was not that way in the past...so something has changed since I last used that pedal first in the chain in an earlier firmware.

    2.6 Industrial Fuzz bug?

    Guess I am glad I kept my Fuzz God to throw in a loop. :P
