  1. I'll 3rd this...Channel switching with my Friedman JJ100 no longer works. Well it actually works if you select the footswitches in command center to change the channels but you cannot save the state of the ext amp footswitches per snapshot.
  2. Would like to have a separate setting for the Helix FX Loop send and return jacks. This would allow us to appropriately match to what type of FX loop in on our amp when using the 4 Cable Method. Right now the send goes into the input of the amp and needs to be instrument level, but the return goes to the FX loop which may need to be either line or instrument level depending on the FX Loop in the amp. If the FX loop in the amp does not have a level switch for line/instrument, then this does not allow proper balancing. Vote it up please!
  3. Thanks for the reply. I do realize that you can assign up to 8 parameters to the footswitches. I was referring to assigning the functions I previously stated in the command center menu alone. Have one footswitch control the cannel and loop on/off state simultaneously in the command center.
  4. Can you assign more than one parameter control to the footswitches in command center? I just picked up an EVH 5150 III 50 Watt head. It has midi control to change the channels on the amp via Midi PC, and turn the FX Loop on/off via Midi CC's. I'd like to be able to have the same footswitch control the amp channel and the FX loop state. Thanks in advance.
  5. Think I might be a little "special" but I can't seem to post my ideascale links here. I try to copy and paste it in the body, I try to use the link button. Doesn't work. Appreciate the help!
  6. Not exactly sure what the mod is. It may vary with each amp type. I know it was pretty simple but it was internal to the Helix for my situation. There was a cable mod that had to be done for a Mesa MarkV:25. Sounds like it's becoming more of an issue with other amps as people start using the 4CM. Hopefully D.I. will respond to this post but each of you need to submit a support ticket to get the issues documented and drive resolution. Good luck. Don't give up. The Helix is awesome and Line 6 will make it right.
  7. I just wanted to update this post because the issue has been resolved. Line 6 found that the issue could only be resolved with a simple internal mod. They rented a Friedman JJ100 in order to troubleshoot and find a fix. It took them awhile to get this all done, but they stuck to it. D.I. followed the whole process and kept me updated on a regular basis. At the end of the day, Line 6 stepped up to the plate and did what was right and resolved my issue. They have been a class act the whole time. Top notch! Thanks again D.I. To anyone that has a Friedman out there or will be getting one, this mod will need to be done to your Helix if you plan on using it to channel switch the amp.
  8. Awesome, thx D.I. I figured it was something like that.
  9. Yes I'm setting up instant commands in Command Center. But strangely it seems to be ignoring them and sending the corresponding midi PC that matches the Helix preset.
  10. I'm having an issue with controlling my midi program changes of my M5 unit with my Helix. I had it working properly but now it is not. I have it setup to do a program change on the M5 from the Command Center in the Helix per preset. I have the midi channels set appropriately on both units but the Helix is not sending the PC I am telling it to in the Command Center. It just sends the corresponding PC of that particular preset. In other words, if I select preset 01 on the Helix it selects midi PC01 on the M5 and so forth. Any ideas?
  11. Sounds great! The bass tone is awesome. I'm definitely going to have to try that tone when I get a bass. It's kind of like doing the King's X Doug Pinnick thing. He used to use a Mesa Dual Rectifier along with his bass rig to get that top end drive and sizzle. What Guitar amp models and IR's you using?
  12. I have a Friedman JJ100. The Helix does change the Friedman's channels effectively, however when you have the stereo cable connected from the Helix's ext amp control jack to the Friedman amp channel control jack the expression pedal on the Helix will not go to the 100% position (only to 96-98%). Becomes an issue if you want to use it for pitch shifting effects. I have a support ticket submitted to customer service and I'm being told it's being worked on. I know there is the same issue with the Friedman Small Block. Besides that, the Helix sounds great with the Friedman, effects in front of the amp and in the fx loop.
  13. I believe there is a resistor mod you do to the cable. Ask Digital Igloo. I'm hoping they come up with a fix for my Friedman!
  14. Did you put in a support ticket to customer service? If not please do. The more they know they have a problem with Friedman amps the quicker they will try to find a fix.
