    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!
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  6. 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.

    Future extra speaker simulations?

    Are there plans in the future to create additional speaker simulations without a mic modeled, for the amp in the room sound? I would love to know that maybe a cannabis rex model without a mic would be available in the future.

    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?

    I was trying to sue the Industrial Fuzz for the first time in 2.6 last night. I found that no matter where I put it in the chain, when I turned it on I had normal volume and then when I turned it off the volume dropped a silly amount. I was familiar with the impedance tone changing situation, but this seems totally different. Anyone else notice this as a problem?

    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

    HX FX issue

    When it happens to me, my foot is no where the device... I will be playing, look down and my device has gone into the parameter spill mode for one of the effects. I exit out back into stomp mode and often it will switch immediately back to the effects parameter screen again.

    HX FX issue

    I seem to randomly have this happen as well. I am powering off a strymon supply, so I was going to try the original supply to see if that resolved it and if not did not reflash with the latest firmware. Are you using the included power supply by chance?

    Future extra speaker simulations?

    Yeah, I noticed that the description for speaker Emulations on the Plus specs now says, "6 (expandable)" where the non plus model just says 6. So they are at least considering it! I ordered a Plus.

    Power (off) cab option, and tube amp input idea!

    Couldn't you use a load box box with your tube amp and then run the line out of the laodbox into the Power Cab? I think you could do that with this one even Attenuator

    Future extra speaker simulations?

    From the manual: SPEAKER MODE - Intended to respond like a real guitar speaker for a traditional "amp-in-the-room" experience. This mode applies different tonal characteristics of the selected speaker model to the device's coaxial driver, with the following 3 adjustable parameters. Speaker Model - Selects which speaker model is being applied. DI Mic Model - Selects the microphone model that is applied to the XLR output signal while in Speaker Mode, intended to emulate placing the selected mic type in front of the Powercab 112 Plus active guitar speaker system. Mic Distance - Sets the distance between the simulated microphone and the simulated cabinet. While not stated clear enough to drive the point home, imho, this shows that there is no mic model on the simulated speakers that come with the unit, but there is a mic model placed on the DI simulation. This video also clearly states that it is just the speaker model and not a model of a mic in front of it and says that it is a new type of modeling for them. Speaker Only Comment

    Future extra speaker simulations?

    Sorry Cody, i saw the mistake i made in my intial post that probably made it seem like I needed an ir with Mic, I fixes that.

    Future extra speaker simulations?

    Yeah, I don't want the Mic in front ir. My questions is of they may add more amp in the room, speaker only models in the future.

    Future extra speaker simulations?

    Line 6 states that the knob on the back selects a modeled speaker without a Mic modeled in front of it, to give it the amp in the room sound. Not sure how they managed that, but supposedly that is what the unit does and without using the flat response setting. So by turning the speaker selector knob on the back, the speaker will sound like the selected speaker and will not be flat. That is the amp in the room sound they are marketing... no Mic model in front of it. The the di out will include a mic model to send to the board.

    Power Cab 112

    I wonder if they will release more speaker profiles without a modeled mic. I really like that idea for just playing at home with a friend or two and having the amp in the room sound. Wish it had a C Rex model! I know I can add IR's, but they always have a modeled mic as well.

    Powering My HX Effects With A Strymon Zuma

    Just one doubler making it 1A.

    Powering My HX Effects With A Strymon Zuma

    Hey, the reason why it is doubling the current and not the voltage is because the special cable that is being used is combining the two outlets on the Zuma in parallel. There are other special adapters that can combine two ports in series, which doubles the voltage to 18v and not the current. I had a set of cables left from a voodoo labs digital and it came with a cable for powering the older pedals like the DL4, they reverse the polarity though, so I spliced it and flipped the polarity back around and used that cable to connect to the current doubler cable plugged into the zuma. Worked perfectly!
