  1. Sometimes I'm surprised DI and other Line 6 employees even bother to be so down to earth and help us out all the time. I wonder if you sat with him, you'd get his sense of humor. He's clearly not patronizing anyone. I take his so called snarky replies with a grain of salt. They're clearly in top of this. DI: I hope your thick skin can withstand the beating you get everywhere. Just know that some of us understand you guys are doing and delivering the very best ever, and I for one really appreciate the effort. I'm looking forward to see where you'll go with helix. I sure am enjoying mine!
  2. Well it's clear that some are not satisfied with the tuner (I'm not one of them) but clearly Line 6 knows this and will fix it. It's also a high priority when looking at ideascale, so my advice is: let's wait and see what happens after the next couple of updates. The whole 1500 $ argument is really beyos nonsense to me. I've had amps that cost more than 2K that didn't have reverb (or didn't have a good one), which even a Blues jr. does. What gives!? Sometimes I think we forget to be grateful for the things we do get. They made helix so flexible that you could easily incorporate a tuner, so until it get fixed, you're not totally lost. It's not that I find the wishing a better representation of the tuning is too much to ask for, I just question whether it's okay to actually demand it as a basic human right ;)
  3. That is an addictive amp! I'm going to jam with some pals this Saturday and he's playing a ac15, so I'm thinking about going with the /13, JTM and maybe something fendery, like the deluxe, just to distinguish the amp sounds a bit. It's nice to have all these flavors of awesome :) I too get responsive sounds faster with Helix than with hd500. Good times.
  4. The helix is just so much fun. You'll be amazed of how many sounds you can coax out with it. I just got a Goldtop PRS Cu 22 that I'm rocking the helix with. Good match that can cover a lot of ground (not as much as a Variax, but the PRS is effortless to play.) Thanks for posting!
  5. Yeah, along with 9 effects! It ha been stated multiple times by Line 6 that new stuff will come. Wait a month and see. Until then, let's make some music!
  6. Well, it was a long shot! Maybe backup your stuff and do a factory reset thing? who knows if something when wrong during the firmware update?
  7. This is probably a stupid question, but does it happen on other presets as well? Like if you assign a effect or parameter to the same switch? The reason I ask is just to make sure that it isn't set to momentary - like the effect is on when you hold the switch down, and then it turns off when you release your foot. If it happens in other situations just open a support ticket with Line 6. They'll take good care of you! Best of luck!
  8. Sorry, couldn't help myself. Helix is awesome, I look forward to the time when the manual will be updated to reflect a bunch of content and features added. Good times ahead people. I can just feel it! :)
  9. I'm SO happy with my purchase. I had to sell of an amp, a cab and some effects, but just after a few hours with the Helix I can say it's totally worth it. The communication is top notch and I really like the effects in there. I've only scratched the surface (Only played around a little on ONE amp, and before I know it more will be added!) Can't wait to hear what the new addition is about :D
