  1. 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.

    Saving Global settings

    Hmmm surely those ideas should be in progress in that case no? Lets vote away in the meantime :- )
  3. I am a bit surprised that helix has no way to save global settings and we need to set them up every version..... and they are not manageable from the app...
  4. I am sure not intentionally but they did. Again, before the snapshots the instant commands were recalled when the preset was set only once, now they don't, they are sent as many times as snapshots change within a preset Yes, from your point of view now as the first snapshot triggers instant commands on preset change you might think its the same, but it is not. if you have a preset for one song you may want to trigger some commands before the song starts and not need to set anything else later. the probelm is again as the snapshots retrigger the commands , this is causes problems. In the software industry its called backward compatibility testing. Its quite simple and logic. only creating a page with the instant commands at preset level should be super-simple, as switches command do make sense at snapshot level Line 6 : Woudl it be possible to have a preset level instant commands?
  5. I know you can simulate if you don't use snapshots but i need to use them in this case Its standard industry software development stuff... all functionality from previous version should be included... think about taking your car to repair to find out you got 100HP more but cannot use 5th gear .... because... reasons.... :- )
  6. Yes but the problem is i want to send commands at preset change time and never send them again during snapshot changes, that used to be possible and it is not now. So yes a step forward having command been sent with snapshots but clearly there is a functionality we used to have and we don't. In this case I want to send PCs to another unit, and before it would work once at preset change, now every time i use my main snapshot it sends the PC again, which i don't want to. I am using the helix as Midi Clock master to this other unit and a PC change gets the unit tempo to oscillate as it tries to lock again. And no that unit's Programs numbers don't match my helix so I don't want to use the PC send option as the numbers are not, and cannot be, the same There should be a page called preset instant commands!
  7. any commands, instant commands can be also CV or ext amp commands...
  8. There should be a preset level instant commands.... snapshots level are ok but i also want to run instant commands only at preset recall time. they actually existed before the snapshots so a bit of a step back.......

    Wireless HELIX

    Think 1 Cable + 3 wireless method :- )

    Swell not that swelll?

    Tried that too but still not getting the goodness.... threshold seems backwards ... it gates from a level where is should be a reverse gate... gating high volume and letting lower volume pass.
  11. Yep ! I followed the instructions to the comma! Just tried exporting the set list... works like a charm. But doesnt teh bundle include the global settings? Thats why I try to use bundles... so I don't have to do all the global settings again...
  12. I had been waiting for it.... you needed it for ambient sounds..... the auto swell! I am finding that sometimes it doesn't swell as well as for example the X3 swell used to do. i get a lot of attack even in not so fast phrases.... I have been working for it an hour of so and only thing i see it sort of works is to reduce the release to 1ms... but still you get the odd attack note that hasn't been swelled... again in slow playing mode... Any help?
  13. upgraded to 2.20 and quite happy but now helix app doesnt export bundles.. it gets stuck in 12% submmited ticket: 297240
  14. I am sure there is ways to do it..... 1.- Disabling all cab and IR blocks or Giving An option so that 1/4 output doesnt bring IR+CAB simulation. . That way you keep the amp section. This can work for people using he power amp section of the amp 2.- Disabling all amp + cab + ir blocks... for 4 cable method users 3.- disabling amp+cab + ir for People that use the front of the amp as input Agree sound might be different... but sometimes when giging you might need to make a quick last minute decision.... Vota away!
  15. Can helix set up the stagesource modes?
  16. No MIDI Clock is bad bad bad....Please vote!
  17. This is interesting cause I find the Amp+Cab sound completely different than the pre-amp block + cab block. Try it.
  18. Hi All The editor is ok, even in beta it works quite flawlessly, only had a crash once after 1 hour of use, but to be honest it's just basic stuff, The only real reason to have an editor is to be able to do what you cant do in the Helix or takes too long to repeat, namely: Quickly move patches: Included Move Blocks: Included Copy Paste Blocks: Not included but coming up Copy entire paths: Not Included. For example many of us use the helix for our vocals as well as our guitars. We would lke to be able to set a vocal path and copy/paste throughout our patches. Block by block doesnt cut it by far. In fact the best way woudl be to be able to use a global path in some presets (but not others). Command centre Copy Paste: Not Included. Global settings: Not Included (except Global Eq). Execute commands to all patches, for example if you want to add an FX loop on all patches because you want to start using an FX patch. I know this is quite advanced and probably requires some basic programming language. but isnt' the Helix supposed to be professional and World Class? So as a basic beta this is ok, but the final product should be much more powerful
  19. You need to use the preamp models instead of the full ones otherwise its sounds terrible, Helix doesn't have the output section POD X3 Had that would remove cab simulation if going through a power amp
  20. Not when you have 30 something presets for a GIG : - 9 Thats around 120 cursor clicks, 30 somoething next preset clicks and 30 somthing by pass button clicks.... per gig X.- ) )
  21. Did a search and seems there is no way:
  22. POD X3 had a very nice feature missing in Helix: You could select the global output so POD would decide if it would add the speaker simulation or not . How is that done in the Helix?
  23. You mean MIDI Clock master! It would be awesome if the helix could do that... something all midi hardware in the 80s and 90s had but recently not so many does....

    Helix FAQ

    How about MIDI CLOCK Master? Can Helix be the midiclock master based on the pacth BPM assignment?

    Helix FAQ

    1.- Can the helix Produce Midi Clock? I would like to use it in conjunction with other gear that doesn't. 2.- You say it has 4 instead of 2 Channel paths??? 3.- Can you explain what an Impulse responses are? Highly Excited about this!
