    Snapshot Toggle on 2.80

    "Snapshot Toggle—The new Global Settings > Preferences > Snapshot Reselect parameter determines whether pressing the current Snapshot footswitch reloads that snapshot ("Reload", the default) or toggles between it and the previously selected snapshot ("Toggle Prev")" I know 2.80 has not been released yet, and I may be asking too much. But in the future (2.81 maybe), I wonder if it is possible for this feature to switch to a "snapshot + 4" instead of just previous snapshot. For example: First press of snapshot 1 would recall snapshot 1, obviously. Second press of snapshot 1 would recall snapshot 5. First press of snapshot 2 would recall snapshot 2. Second press of snapshot 2 would recall snapshot 6. So on and so forth... Of course this would only work for my use case of four snaps plus stomp. lol =)

    Best way to connect an external vocal mic preamp

    If I had an external mic pre, I probably would just use the mic input to save the loops for other things. I'd ensure that the global settings are set properly, i.e. mic gain set to 0, phantom off, etc. Yeah you probably would need that pad.

    Helix Bug Reports

    Using a Helix rack here and control. When a loop is playing at half-speed, moving an effects block around the looper plays the phrase at full speed even though the display says half speed. Pressing 1/2-full button to say "full" then pressing it back again to say 1/2 speed returns it to normal (normal in this case is half speed). edit: I'm on 2.50

    Vetta 2 power switch

    Anyone know a replacement Vetta power switch part number? I've already scoured Full Compass to no avail... Thanks!

    Exporting IRs and retaining its location

    prefixing seems to be a common workaround so i'll try that. but yeah, I never would have thought of using a 1x12 cab with a 4x12 and a heavy amp until this incident... IR roulette is fun.

    Exporting IRs and retaining its location

    Is there a trick I don't know about when exporting IRs so that when I import them back they will retain their preset location? I just lost their original location when I did an import. Ironically, the IRs in the new location sound better than what I originally had there. LOL.

    Helix sounds like I'm playing in a box?

    If you're coming from an 'amp in a room' sound then going to FRFR or PA, you probably just need to get adjusted to how it sounds. I had to greatly adjust to the sound of a Helix and a Mission Gemini 2 compared to an amp and a Mesa 212. I did have to make EQ adjustments applied to the 1/4" outs only going to the Gemini and I tried to make the Gemini sound close as I could with my studio monitors without any EQ applied.

    Helix Rack Control, worth it?

    I actually have had an MFC-101 before getting the Helix Rack and Controller. I would hold off on getting the rack controller until L6 has implemented 'switch grouping' which to me is badly needed due to preset switching latency on the Helix. The MFC is good but somewhat limited as far as the number of CC messages per channel sent per IA switch. I've actually been looking in to a mid-size RJM MMGT or mid-size FAMC but I have not pulled the trigger as I'm waiting to see if L6 can implement it within the next few months or so.
  12. you'll probably have to use two separate input paths then combine them using the A/B block.

    HELIX AND MISSION GEMINI ?

    I have the rack, controller, and Gemini 2 active. The gemini has a peak between 3-4 khz which is fairly pronounced. I have to use the global eq to sculpt out the frequencies which doesn't sound natural. Thankfully it's pretty easy with the way the global eq responds. I only apply it to the 1/4" outs that feeds the gemini because if i feed it to the xlr as well, the eq doesnt sound right coming out of my studio monitors. The gemini is also loud. Do get the one with Bluetooth, and don't worry about the fan of the live version. It's audible but not too bad. The reviews below paint a fairly accurate picture. http://www.scuffhamamps.com/forum/5-the-lounge/7248-mission-gemini-2-frfr-cab-first-impressions http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/sep15/articles/mission-gemini-2.htm Overall I'm really impressed with both the Helix and Gemini. I have mine directly hooked up to my audio interface for recording/reamping. If I want a live sound, I just turn on the Gemini.

    Helix Bug Reports

    For those who have an external effects with MIDI, and you use the Helix as a MIDI pedalboard: when you set the Helix's MIDI base to OMNI, does it still change the preset on your external gear?
