    Dumble Amps???

    An extensive search online did not turn up anyone named Michael Price selling presets. Can you or someone else please post a link or name correction? thanks!
  2. I totally agree. I don't need another amp or distortion box. If you can't craft the sound from the existing helix offerings, what will another amp or distortion box do? I also want more polyphonic options! Also more of the specialty pedals would be great too - like the Jangle Box or Hedris offerings.
  3. I just checked it out. Yes, very classy and great news! Helix rocks!
  4. I don't recall the name, and it was pricey, but someone produced a plexi-glass laser-cut cover for the helix that was designed to eliminate this very problem. Perhaps searching the archives or google can shed additional light on this product.

    Helix 2.9

    Thanks Phil, you're the guy I was referring too as someone who knows a lot about how Line 6 works!

    Helix 2.9

    I thought there was one person who replies on this forum often that worked for line 6. Perhaps he just has a lot of inside information. I am fascinated by how the line 6 team writes code for the Helix family, and was hoping to gain some insight into if this is done under one roof or remotely. All good, stay safe everyone! And in the grand scheme of things, what's going on in the world, certainly puts the complaining and anxiety of waiting for these updates into proper perspective.

    Helix 2.9

    I suppose I could do the research and read everything under the sun, but short of that, I thought perhaps a helpful thought or answer from a user or employee would be better. Luckily for me, others were more helpful.

    Helix 2.9

    I was a little hesitant to ask, but here goes (hesitant because I don't want to get jumped on for being insensitive to the covad-19 crisis) With so many of us home these days, I'd love for 2.9 or 3.0. to be released. Do you think the engineers and code writers are working from home and may be able to release2.9 soon, or is this a more -collaborative office effort where everyone needs to be under one roof, so development and error checking has been put on hold? I have no idea how the employees working on this project work together (offsite vs. onsite). Any idea?
  9. Now we are getting somewhere! How do you expect people to help you if you can't express what you are really looking for?
  10. I would love to see vintage Eddie and a snapshot with Eruption And how about a Def Leppard Pyromania tone with snapshots of all those incredible tones found on that album thanks!
  11. One last thing I'd like to add as one of the posters mentioned precious real estate considerations and the cost of a booster. I totally realize some may have to factor in these issues and challenges. My solution of a dedicated boost came out of the need to sometimes increase volume when my hx-stomp and my helix floor were turned up to the max and I needed more volume when using the Power Cab standard and other powered speakers and needed more volume. (Please don't tell me to boost the PC standard, that option was not designed into this model. I purchased a used TC mini spark for around $30.00 on ebay and I built a pedal board 4" x 4" that I place close to my powered speaker (either on top or behind or on the floor). The purpose of the 4 inch x 4 inch pedal board was so that I could permanently attach a boost and adapter and ac chord and quickly set up for a gig or jam. A 4x4 inch board is very light and easily fits into my gig bag and takes up just about zero real estate. This solution cost about $30.00 to make (I had wood, paint, extra cables, extra velcro) etc. and works for my needs. It seems to boost every tone on-the-fly by the same ratio and if the drummer or other guitarist turns up, I'm right there with them, and I can turn up my boost as needed, on the fly. This solution may not needed by many, and my solution does not work for every need, but it's a low-cost, quick-fix solution that does not add space requirements to pedal boards or the space you need on stage or in practice.
  12. I just reread the op request. He wants to uniformly add volume when needed for an entire gig. Once. He makes no mention of needed a dedicated footswitch on the helix. My suggestion works just fine and will add appropriate volume on every single tone.
  13. that's clever and great. But what happens if your helix volume knob is at the max?
  14. I had a very similar need recently as I purchased a power cab standard and found my hx-stomp and helix floor needed to be louder to work with this powered speaker. I purchased a used tc mini boost. It's a very powerful and very clean boost. I send my signal from the helix into the boost and can make every tone equally louder. Works like a charm as long as it's after the helix in the chain.
