  1. Does it occur with a completely balnk path? Just guitar. No amp, effect or anything else in the path. If it does, then you have an issue. If it doesn’t happen and both paths are equal, then start taking the effects out one at a time until it’s equal on both channels. That’s the effect you need to change either entirely or just the parameters.
  2. I have one and yes, the claim was ,as the signal changed, one of the frequencies was "slower" than the others (hi mid lo) so it would dynamically delay a band so the hi mid, and low sound waves were realligned. I do think it sounded different from a plain EQ. I remember hearing that the reallignment thing was just hype. I have not used it since I've gone to Line 6. Here's one of the best articles about how it works that I've seen. It's from Sweetwater but it really is accurate and not a lot of hype. https://www.sweetwater.com/insync/what-bbe-effective/
  3. I use that trick all the time. Put a looper in right after the input and record a lick. Then loop that and start playing with amps. Start with the Fenders and Vox's I guess for what it sounds like you want to do.
  4. That was weird. I'm glad it worked out.
  5. The main reason I think it's the mixer is that it happens on one channel only. If it was the Helix then the phenomenon would have switched channels on the mixer when you switched cables. At the very least, I'm pretty sure it's not the Helix.
  6. Are you sure about your output? Like datacommando said, make sure your output is on Multi. Make sure you either need Phantom power and it's on, or if you don't need it, make sure it is off.
  7. That sounds more like a mixer issue to me. Have you tried using something else in the mixer's inputs to see if it will duplicate the issue? And just to be clear it only happens on one input, not both? If that's true, again, that sounds like the issue is with the mixer.
  8. Ooooops. Here's one using the HD500 looper only. It isn't the one I remember. Nor was the one I originally posted. It was more similar to the first one except it was just him alone and he was using only the HD500. .
  9. Check this out. If this is the kind of thing you're talking about, it was done on the previous Line 6 modeler. The Helix has the same thing if not a little better. He did say he used a Boss DD-20 delay for some overdubs. I'm not sure how, but I think this demonstrates what you want to do.
  10. It is a vcery basic looper. Click to start record, click to stop and it starts playing automatically. I started to write some hints but I was just rewriting the manual. It's so basic it only takes up two pages in the manual. Pages 39-40. But if you've used a looper before, you probably don't need the manual very much.
  11. I don't believe the holes line up. Make sure you get one without the holes predrilled. Check this thread out. May not be easy to find for the 89.
  12. Yeah, there were articles talking about the out of phase thing but they mostly had certain tone knob settings that supposedly worked. It was those articles that got me interested in this pursuit.
  13. It's just something I was reading about in reference to the Deluxe Reverb. Yes, there are amps that are jumpered but they are mostly Marshalls, not the Fenders. I figured both inputs were mixed before the power amp but, as we all know, the Helix doesn't have separate power amps. Thank you all for your responses.
  14. I'm not getting a straight answer from the internet. I want to simulate jumpering two amp inputs. It sounds like it's essentially the same as having the one guitar plugged into the two inputs so I would just need to use the two amps in parallel to each other going into the same cab. Like the Vib an Nrm channels in a Twin Reverb. Can anyone confirm this?
  15. I think the problem is he wants to go directly from preset 1 to preset 2 with the desired snapshot ready to go. Otherwise, going to preset 2 and THEN going to the desired snapshot for that preset would be better.
  16. If I'm understanding you correctly, you would have to dedicate a button to each iteration of the preset you wanted. i.e. One button with snapshot X and preset 2 and another one with snapshot y and preset 2.
  17. I do not really like the acoustics in the JTV Variax. The older Variax's acoustics sounded better. One thing I do is put the Acoustic Sim in the EQ section parallel to the Variax's main path. I will then judiciously mix the two. Not perfect but it helps.
  18. I use these https://www.amazon.com/Jiayouy-Guitar-Footswitch-Toppers-Protection/dp/B0B3D6FNP3/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3CO49Z79FGW8&dib=eyJ2IjoiMSJ9.pP86hVqYB6o3D0yMIDlbl7Z48VRtgYSvmszmIAwCa3wh-ALUaDEnR8P87zwjUXP17y6fwjszdorScXPoSUQyTJ51xsxt-1HynXp_3UHsiKQCe5OmUIRiaobyUA-qZmqnB6hHHCeju0-BSprno15ZOmhX1pXp9bJ4XG2QQcEwUY9cY3HoTb23AZMLW7DVQ6cw.p8DAku3Ci658RcapQyJy9pEhq3VbdeJyutQ_6vtsQrw&dib_tag=se&keywords=line%2B6%2Bhelix%2Bbutton%2Btoppers&qid=1712754500&sprefix=button%2Btoppers%2Caps%2C188&sr=8-1&th=1 The only thing about them is you lose the capacitance function where you just touch a footswitch and the associated thing comes up. There are others with a set screw that has enough connection to the switch it will perform that function. So you can just touch it on the side of the topper and get the same result. I don't use that function so I don't miss it. And the clear ones allow you to see the footswitches color.
  19. You said you connected the 1/4" guitar cable at the same time you had it powered by the CAT 5 cable. Don't do that. It could damage the circuit. If you've done this before, you may already have. I'm going to hope this next thing solves your problem. You ddin't mention this but, I have had patches where the Variax goes into magnetic mode. So your model selector will go dark. Just push the model selector knob. It will light back up and you will be able to switch models. Hope this helps. It would really suck if it's an actual problem. It sounds like this is not the issue but it's the only other thing I can think of. Check this thread out. psarkissian works for Line 6 so read what is said in that post. If you do use the 1/4" and VDI, apparently this might happen If that happens, this is the only place I know to get a replacement and they are out of them. It also says it's for a JTV-89. Not sure if there is a difference. And let's not forget that they aren't making Variax's anymore. I thought that they were required to provide support for a few years after that according to some law. Not sure if that rule/law will be followed. https://www.fullcompass.com/prod/215565-line-6-50-04-0079-2-jack-plate-assembly-for-jtv-89
  20. You can switch the pedal from linear to logarithmic. I still wish there was more control. It doesn't seem to operate exactly the way I want it to. I think it's a taper adjustment I'm looking for.
  21. I don't think that's what he was saying. I think he was saying that if you have a mono source and both the left and right outputs are plugged into something from the Helix, you will get a stereo signal provided your patch is stereo as well.. If you only have the left output going to something and nothing plugged into the right ouput, it will be mono. It's supposed to be summed but I think there may be issues. There was a thread about something like this somewhere. Try this thread. I think it may answer your questions and describe the issues with L/MONO - R ouputs. Like it doesn't sum left and right when only one thing is connected to the left ouput.
  22. Check the patch out and see if the volume knob has a number by it or says DON'T FORCE. If it isn't, put it there. There is a whole section in the manual about "Controller Assign" on page 53 of the Helix Owner's manual. I started to dig into it but it was taking too long. So you'll need to do your own homework. FYI the JTV Variax volume knob can be set to control many Helix parameters. I use it and it's pretty cool. It's obvious that somehow it is sending a MIDI message to Garageband. You'll need to check out to see what the Variax volume knob is assigned to. You'll probably have to read to manual to discover all of the possibilities.
