    This really intrigues me. I have a full on floor Helix so this isn't as critical a thing for me but I wonder if some people might start coming up with EQ's that approximate Helix cabs and make some kind of list; especially for those that have the HX Stomp. Is this patch on Customtone? I am curious how it sounds.

    I remember a comment by Digital in around October I think. Someone mentioned it wouldn't be done until Feb. Digital's response was I hope not. That just show me they were working hard enough then to think it would be ready before Feb. So OP just know it is being worked on and as SOON as it's done you will know. No amount of questioning will give you any more of an answer than that.

    There's and update coming? I had no idea.. ;) I must say the "when's it coming threads" aren't as prolific as they have been in the past. I was just thinking yesterday how I hadn't seen anything here lately like that. I guess i jinxed it, huh.
  4. The Big Book of Helix Tips & Tricks has exactly what you are looking for. Highly recommended.
  5. I thought the same thing about it being an ad. I am now convinced it's not. I will also add my COMPLETE ENDORSEMENT for this book. It is VERY impressive. If you're looking for an all in one in depth document on the Helix, this is it. You don't get this info from Line 6.
  6. I believe the main thing is the pickups impedance have something to do with the circuit. Read this. It could change the way your guitar sounds more than just the differences the pickup may have.
  7. This is a comment that was about a Jaguar patch that was liked but no one can find. It's the guitar body and pickup used in the patch. Maybe this will help. If i recall corectly the jaguar was the body of firebird with the lipstick pickups of the danelectro.
  8. Personal Message. You can do that here somewher on the forum. Arsilaf has something called Arsilaf's Realistic JTV Bundle. It has an SG in it I believe. you could try that. I tried uploading the file here but it's too big. It's on the Vguitar forum and you'll have to join the forum to download it. Remember it is a bundle so backup your JTV patches before installing the bundle on your guitar. It will replace all of them and you'll lose them if you don't. FYI all bundles do that. Here's the link. https://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=24065.0
  9. The title says it. I like many of the sounds on the page linked below, but I don't seem to be able to get what I hear there. I have a Helix. So how were each of those sounds recorded. I know what the guitars are. Can I get the rest of the signal path? https://line6.com/variax-modeling-guitars/sound/
  10. Unfortuantely Clay-Man hasn't been here since 2019. Maybe if you PM him? I would like them as well if you find them. I think arislaf is still around. Try him. In my search for this patch, I found this https://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=16551.msg139810#msg139810 So it sounds like arislaf got it at the time. I'm still looking.
  11. You are going to need these. https://www.amazon.com/Line-Variax-Spare-Lithium-Battery/dp/B08Z3FBLF8?ref_=ast_sto_dp https://www.amazon.com/Line-Variax-Battery-Charger-Kit/dp/B006HKEL3Y?ref_=ast_sto_dp You need to be careful about the battery you get. This one was on the Line 6 area of Amazon so it should be good. There are others that have the same dimensions and specs but, it's my understanding that there is a proprietary chip in the "official" Line 6 battery that regulates some things so all batteries are not equal. Good luck!
  12. I had this issue and then used DeOxit D5. I must say, a small spritz of DeOxit on each piezo when I change my strings has kept it "running". When the strings are off, the DeOxit can get into the space between the piezo and the saddle. You are essentially doing the Alcohol thing but don't need the canned air. DeOxit is what all the "pro's use" Everywhere I've worked (I work with electronic stuff) there are cans of DeOxit always available.
  13. Well you can't do what you describe but you can control parameters with the tone and volume knob. I use this to simulate Tom Scholz's Space Echo.
  14. COMPLETELY OFF TOPIC:To spaceatl. My mouse hovered over your avatar and I noticed it said you joined this forum on Dec 31, 1969. That's amazing! I didn't know Line 6 had been around that long!!! How did you do it? (just joking of course, But I had to make some comment.)
  15. I don't know if this has been mentioned. Does it still not sum to mono when the XLR outputs aren't plugged in? Could the fact the XLR's are being used in stereo and you want a summed mono out of the 1/4" confuse the Helix?
