  1. Select Helix as the product(?) in the firat column and you'll be looking for HX Edit in the next drop dowm menu. HX Edit I'm pretty sure you don't need his login but eventually he needs to swap the registration to you. You will need it to upgrade and a new upgrade is coming soon.

    Helix 2.9

    Well, I know they're not sitting around having a few beers, laughing at all of the angst of people waiting for it. It will be released the second it's ready. I feel your pain but it's the only answer.
  3. Some of the reviews on Amazon mention that they are brittle. One talks about getting them for their Helix. " I put these Mooer shrooms on my Helix to replace the Mooer Candy toppers so I could more easily hit the metal footswitches when programming. I used these for only two gigs and two are broken already. These are brittle, cheap plastic that will NOT hold up to gigging. Unless and until they beef up the structure of these buttons, I cannot recommend them and suggest you don't wast your money on them. " I have had the Mooer Candy Toppers on my Helix for over 2 years with NO issues at all. I got all black which do allow the color of the LED rings to show through. Cheap and reliable and they work. These here. https://www.amazon.com/GETMusic-Plastic-Bumpers-Footswitch-Protector/dp/B075TXX5LQ/ref=pd_sbs_267_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B075TXX5LQ&pd_rd_r=C4CST5TWEVKXTZ9NWNAZ&pd_rd_w=6yfZV&pd_rd_wg=yKoTI&psc=1&refRID=C4CST5TWEVKXTZ9NWNAZ
  4. I'm just assuming here but FB probably means feedback which would indicate to me that it controls the tone of the repeats only and doesn't effect the dry/original signal. Just a guess.

    Helix 2.9

    I've been looking on line for the Steve Vai Legendary drive but all that comes up is the Steve Vai Legacy drive. Is it actually the Legacy drive?
  6. Since they are wave files, could it be reading the title from wherever WAV's MP3's etc. store the title. Try right clicking on the IR, going to properties and find what it's called in there. It'll be under the DETAILS tab.
  7. This is true but I've had it happen with numerous amps as well as a preamp that I would use with the Variax acoustic. In fact it was switch between patches with an acoustic to one without that I discovered this. Mainly with the tone knob which I often changed on my acoustic patches (not anymore). I started to tryy and isolate the issue but never finished my investigation. And, since it is fixed with a twist of the volume knob, that would not indicate an amp issue.

    Helix 2.9

    Voted it up! Don't know if it's even possible in Helix but it would be amazing cool if it was. I'd use it....AND my ears.
  9. Also, maybe read throught this whole thing There were some weird things that you had to do. And unfortunately yes, read through the WHOLE thing. Hope that helps. I honestly don't think it will. Peter's suggestions would be all that I have left.
  10. That's a new one on me. I know Helix is on 2.8.2. I'm also pretty sure you need to use the correct version of HX Edit with the correct version of Helix. Could you be using HX Edit 2.8.2 version with Helix version 2.8.1? That's all I can come up with right now.
  11. At namm there was a Line 6 get together where several things coming up on the 3.0 update were mentioned. On The Gear Page this was posted. @phil_m dispensation has been given and inquiring minds want to know, 8 Stomp blocks was one? Yes, the 8 blocks for the Stomp was the third one they mentioned. So looks like 8 blocks are coming. Don't give up yet!!
  12. So is this something you do for each different amp? Or do you find IR's that work with many different amps. Or a combination of both perhaps. And do you personally rename your IR's?
  13. That's definitely a possibility and have heard it on other forums. It's even on the product's home page. "The most powerful floor modeler on the planet" is what it says specifically. The official release date is Nov. so it'll be awhile before we know for sure. It does look to have potential although I'm good with my Helix personally. But if I win the lottery.........
  14. I thought we were just discussing. I know my barn doors are still closed if ya know what I mean so no weeing going on here officer.
  15. Hard to assess from here. You're not completely specific about your creation procedure. So the first thing, which you probably already did, did you save the patch after you created/changed the snapshot? I know, probably an obvious thing to you but I'm not quite sure what else it could be.
  16. I read this Her relationship with Line 6 resulted in the launching of the Variax series Here https://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/jennifer-batten Is that true? I've never heard that before.

    Helix MegaLite

    That's true too. But, I can see how some may feel different, that's all. I personally have no skin in this game. At the very least I think it's cool to provide the HX modeling at this price point. Even cheaper than the HX Stomp. I personally won't get one. Helix for the floor. HX Stomp (eventually) for a backup and vacations.
  18. Four whole minutes of silence? It's coming. I have always wished for, from the first Variax and POD XT/Vetta series, a total Variax integration. I am hoping that is what this means. And I'm talking about being able to save custom Variax guitars on a per patch level. I've never the used Variax to it's fullest potential because it's too difficult to keep track of any custom guitar's I create. If I do create a custom guitar it is only to essentially customize the guitar that's already saved in that slot. Like, I would only save a customized strat with a neck pickup in that slot. If this means I can save Variax guitars on a per patch basis that would be a dream come true. If I can at least read what I named my "custom" guitar (which I believe you can on the Helix itself but not in HX Edit) it would help a lot and I would do more custom stuff. For now I only have Strats in the strat bank, Les Pauls in the Lester bank, etc. Can't wait to see exactly what this means.

    Helix MegaLite

    Although...they have offered Variax connectivity in most, if not all, of the other "around $500" POD floor modelers, so I can see how the expectation would be there. But, it is what it is and it ain't there.
  20. Well based on the price, ($1599) it looks like an attempt to enter the "Helix" arena. Here's the product page. https://neuraldsp.com/quad-cortex
  21. That's his first post. It is blatantly obvious he just wants to rattle people's cages. It's such an honorable trait. This is a Helix (a modeler) forum. Why would he even be here? He created his profile and then waited for the perfect opportunity to spring his amp trap!!! (actually, that's probably not the correct characterization but screw him). I don't know guys. He may be too clever for us. It was such a well crafted, well thought out post and I know I've NEVER heard any of his points anywhere else (that would be sarcasm Albok). Well Albok ya shore got us good. I give up. Amps are better. (that would be more sarcasm Albok). Actually I can't help but think he's someone else on this/these forum's and thought it would be fun to stir the pot. If he is legit, then my reaction would be that what I have is as easy if not easier to carry around and my sonic pallette is so much broader than that amp. And you don't so much need patience (I'm sorry, patients) to learn all of this modelling stuff....Just intelligence. I am sorry you apparently haven't aquirred that yet. No worries, there's still hope.

    Helix MegaLite

    No VDI for Variax.
  23. So I tried this and the model names remained the same in HX Edit. Here's an example of what I did. The ONLY thing I changed was the name [ { "symbolicID" : "HD2_AmpGermanMahadeva", "name" : "Bogner Shiva", "category" : 1, "cablink" : "HD2_Cab1x12Lead80", "load": 28.27, "params" : [ { Do I need to change something else?

    Helix MegaLite

    That is what that sounds like. Interesting.

    Helix MegaLite

    Just POD and go The focus of the POD Go is the sounds, rather than deep editing. And it’s filled to the brim with what Line 6 describes as “professional-quality amp, cab, and effect models”. They come directly from the company’s popular HX family of effects processors, including classic amp models like the Blackface, Plexi Lead and Treadplate. I'm assuming the HX family is the Helix's family.
