    Helix 2.9

    Helix allows you to either select 1 output only for XLR and 1/4 inch So for Path1 , lets say vocals, I can use XLR. BUT as I use Line 6 Link for Path 2,my guitar, to connect to my powercab, there is no way to select the output of the guitar Path to ONLY Line 6 link, hence I need to use the MULTI selection, which sends my guitar ALSO via XLR. So in order to avoid my guitar in the FOHI pan my vocals to the right and the guitar to the left in the output, also since powercab takes only the Left channel in as it works in mono. If I could select , like we could do in the POD X3, which outputs I can send per channel, I could send my vocal stereo to XLR and my guitar in stereo to my powercab... and get another powercab for a fullly stereo vocals and stereo guitar setup Makes sense? Attached an image of the current set up

    Now if only 3.0 would have Flexible routing https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Helix-Flexible-Outputs/973066-23508?submitted=1

    This could be nice!!

  6. How about Peak Leds on each block? at least it helps to find which block is distorting.... I play with the Powercab plus and have found that checking each block helped me get a decent level without distorting in very extreme patches.... with many many blocks
  7. Then select only the output you use for the guitar for example if the guitar outs on 1/4 inch and the vocals go out of XLR select 1/ Inc and it will mute the guitar only
  8. Well there is only one thing to it...ask Santa https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/New-set-up-mode-for-powercab-Select-Powercab-preset-from-Helix/960524-23508
  9. Actually you were talking about midi connections I am talking about Line 6 Link ones :- )
  10. For now you seemt to be... but who knows there might be others.... :- ) Its simple You could have helix tell powercab: Hey powercab when I am in Helix preset 1 snapshot 1 change to Powercab preset 34 for example instead Line 6 has based powercab control on setting all the parameters of powercab within the Helix Preset/Snapshot not caring about the powercab preset that is selected Makes sense?
  11. awwwww :- ( because of ... reasons? it's OK... you are right... its just a bit of pain at the beginning... i am actually starting to think its best with more detailed options....

  13. No I meant if you only have 3-5 powercab prsets you use, it easier to tell, by snapshot , the preset number... instead of having to set every parameter on every snapshot. For example I use an IR with specific high cut and volume. If you could tell the preset number it would be 2 clicks to set up a snapshot. With the current way, its 5, multiply by 50 presets... but i gues we can ask for next version
  14. Ahhh... i am soooo dumb.... of course.... :- ) Thanks Phil!
  15. tried again and if i put FRFR on snapshot 1, save, and vintage on snapshot 2, save, when i come back to snapshot 1 the sound is vintage not FRFR so its not a bug... it just doesn't work. spanshot 1 ha an acoustic with the amp block muted and 2 an electric with an amp block
  16. Thanks, actually if you use 3-5 powercab presets woudl be easier to just select the preset, with over 50 helix presets i actively use, to set every single parameter for every single one, while it might be great for flexibility, its a lot of work.....
  17. But does it relate to the powercab presets? I will give it a try....seems there is no connection between the powercab presets and the helix settings?
  18. Does anyone find a bit weird that Helix only chnages parameters of whatever powercab preset is select instead of beaing able to select the powercab preset from helix instead? Otherwise the current implementation is meaningless to powercab presets... woudl be much easier to have helix select the preset..... and then if you want to change the parametyers for that helix preset then ok.... What do you guys think?
  19. Hi all Just updated my Helix to 2.8 and Powercab to 2.0... been awaiting this update since I first bought helix... even sold my DT50 as I expected no helix dt50 connection would happen.... just to see it does now... nonetheless i am more than happy with my powercab plus. Now I have been a user of PODs since 2.0 and always have striven to get the max out of the amazing hardware Line 6 puts up.. and after all these years waiting to control my amp (DT50 112 before and now powercab plus 112) i get into a conundrum: Helix only allows powercab settings BY PRESET. With the advent of snapshots Line 6 did a HUGE, HUMONGOUS step that made a lot of us super happy... specially JTV Variax users like me... finally without any problems I could play acoustic and a banjo and an electric guitar IN THE SAME PRESET! But here is where it gets interesting... with powercab allowing only PER PRESET settings... I cannot change powercab presets PER Snapshot.... Yes i could do it all in the helix and use a FRFR for the preset but I didn't buy the PC Plus for that I bought it so I could use IRs and allow more power to be used in the helix.... I have looked but so far I can only see changing the powercab preset is not possible using snapshots... Any ideas?
  20. Before snapshots control messages were only sent when you would change patch. When snapshots came along control messages are now send every time there is a snapshot change. I would like to be able to decide if the control message is sent when i change the patch or when I change the snapshot
  21. Hi The ability to decide if the control messages are at patch or at snapshot...... currently at snapshot level only!
  22. Working to try to import my Helix's sounds to Native I see Native doesnt have a conceot of Snapshots... that I can find..... would be greta as full compatibility (expcet i/o obviously but that cab e sort of simulated) for creating in Native and bringing to helix and the otehr way around should have snapshots in it... Any help?
  23. It would be great to implement some global routing... some input/ouputs/blocks would be global some depending on preset... Now THAT would be super high end! :- ) https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Global-Always-On-Effects-Return/809601-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Multiple-Global-EQs/825958-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Global-CAB-OFF/790043-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Global-Blocks/755191-23508 https://line6.ideascale.com/a/ideas/search?templateId=0&discussionID=51424&tag=&query=global&date-submitted=&daterangepicker_start=&daterangepicker_end=&date-last-activity=&daterangepicker_start=&daterangepicker_end=
  24. Just to be clear, I don't see the addition of snapshots as a step back... quite the contrary obviously.. it is actually because i use them that I ask. My instant commands were preset level : once a song if I use one preset a song. Now they are not.... and I definitely want to use snapshots! :- ) with lots of love: The OP.
