    Helix FAQ

    I DON'T wait at the microwave, I do something else "multitask" And though your idea of using a trusty crusty MArshall amp and a strat and or paul, tele? There are those few people where this tried and true classic combonation simply does not and will not work in an up to date inviroment where, high $$$ pay means,NO FREEBIRD, NO SMOKE,NO AMPS, NO WEDGES, NO LIVE DRUMS, BASS RIGS,KEY RIGS, LIVE ANYTHING EXCEPT VOCALS is the mandantory standard AND your only form of montoring is strickly in ear. Now this gig is not for everybody, or anybody that has to have to get "thier sound" I need the right amp and guitar sound and tone for the song everytime. Helix and Variax is the new dream rig for these types of gigs which are becoming the new standard,THIS is a working inviroment where the HELIX would be a perfect tool,provided it does not have that dredded AUDIABLE switching delay. And yeah, I'm upset the shady hiding of the Helix... At the end of the day though IF line 6 fixes the one thing that has plauged them form day one! I will buy two of these units, one to use and one as a back up, and sell my Kemper rig and my HD500's... So a question and a little toe tapping IYO about wil it do or not do this to Line 6, are avalid questions to some OTHER working musicians. WE, wait with baited breath to hear...DING! Gotta go...burrito's are done :D

    The problem? Well... If I knew then I could PRE-ORDER a couple...Or not... But you're right they don't know, I don't know, lol no one does...yet. So, I'll wait till I can try a "RELAESED" version out, see if it's any different than the one I tried. Until then, I'll just keep checking my bagage. No rush.... :rolleyes:

    REALLY, So...No, yeah that's a NO... OR As of now, in testing it's there,that blank audible delay when switching presets like every other amp/pod SO, we won't know until it's actually released. tones are great features are great, I played one at you know where , had audible delay then... So much new stuff and gadgets but IMO not worth anything if it still has that very audible delay when switching presets. ,very good idea, intuitve and usefull for the STUDIO ONLY. I love the new routing options! Amazing! tone's AMAZING! I need a live rig ,easy to fly all in one unit, you guys are close. IMO if,IF line 6 figures out that line 6 user age old question any audible delay when switching presets? you'll sell them like hot cakes. WE want flawless real time switching like with pedals (not getting into your true bypass debate) like with amps, A/B/C and foot pedals. It's how it should be, LIVE! I myself have A line 6 MK II combo I practice with at home, but looking to sell it for same reason, switching delay. I know from speaking with other line 6 users and tolerating the blank audible delay , we love the tones effects, the routing and simplicity and we truly do TOLERATE that one little but very important and extreamly ignored (by line 6 developers) thorn in every live line 6 amp/pod users side, that blank Audible delay when switching presets. FIX that one thing FIRST! I'm telling you $1,500 will not be an object for most of the current line 6 users. Including myself. IF it's released with this issue fixed, I'll buy two, every live performer worth their salt has a back up. If that audible delay when switching presets is not fixed when it's finally released, it's just not worth the price, to me. Same ol' pony, just a few new tricks? I wait with baited breath

    I have to regretfully agree .... There is gear (I use live now) out there that's in the price range of this Helix, It sounds amazing with no blank audible switching delay. And so does the helix but you're right. I hope they fix the delay issue, when I tested it, it was very easy to navigate. unlike my current unit. the Helix is smaller easy to fly with and just set up for a performer's needs, quick editing and great amp tones, WOW, impressive tone! I personally don't use midi other than my BFC1010 and Bias FX to practice with ...but to someone that does, yeah that's a showstopper for sure.

    Helix FAQ

    PLAIN AND SIMPLE QUESTION LINE 6.... IS THERE AN AUDIBLE DELAY WHEN SWITCHING "PRESETS" ON THE HELIX????? PLEASE RESPOND WITH A SIMPLE ANSWER YES or NO.... EXAMPLE: I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF A COOL PRESET PLAYING A SONG AND WANT TO SWITCH... TO A "DIFFERENT" PRESET OR BANK UP/DOWN TO ONE,SAY A LEAD CHANNEL FULL OF DIFFERENT EFFECTS/AMP SOUND IS THERE AN AUDIBLE DELAY LIKE WITH EVERY OTHER PEICE OF LINE 6 GEAR I'VE OWNED AND SOLD VETTA HEAD PODS HD500 SPIDER MKII HEAD ALL OF THEM HAVE THAT AUDIBLE DELAY WHICH RENDERS IT USLESS FOR LIVE STAGE PERFORMANCES. DOES, THE HELIX IN IT'S SIMPLEST FORM OF AN ANSWER FROM OYU LINE 6 PLEASE... DOEA THE HELIX HAVE AN AUDIBLE DELAY WHEN SWITHCING PRESETS OR BANKING UP/DOWN????? REGARD ,THANKS!
  6. Hey don't feel bad, I'm jumping ship too, it's hard becasue while the tones are amazing, the hardware and support is junk. it's either my fault or , they just stop responding once i prove the wrong...I've had issues out of every single peice of gear i've bought from line6 from the original red bean ,flag ship variax 700, second edition 600, pod xt live, vetta head,combo, hd100 head, thier flagship digital mic,v-70? , that bogner spider amp, and now? my new mobile in,after doing an update on my iphone4s ,it sounds like pure garbage from the headphone jack! they say they can't duplicate the issue at line6 , must be my phones jack, told them it works just fine with any other guitar app... they stopped talking to me. unusable! unexceptable, i'm done with line6 too.

    Mobile Pod / Mobile In Problem

    OK~ LINE6 GURU'S /KNOWITALLS ... IF YOU ARE USING LINE6 MOBILE IN WITH A IPHONE4 WITH THE ORIGINAL SOFTWARE (NO UPDATES) IT WILL WORK THROUGH THE HEADPHONE JACK... IF YOU HAVE HAD JUST ONE UPDATE ON THE IPHONE4, IT WILL NOT. YOU SAY IN OTHER THREADS YOU CAN'T DUPLICATE THIS ISSUE? REALLY? OK, TEST THEN. POST A VIDEO, SHOWING YOU'RE USEING AN IPHONE 4/4S/5/5S WITH UP TO DATE SOFTWARE, PLUG IN YOUR MOBILE IN, OPEN THE LINE6 APP, AND LINE OUT FROM THE HEADPHONE JACK TO ANY AUDIO SORCE, (PA,POWERED SPEAKERS ETC.) PLAY THE SAMPLE SOUNDS OR PLUG IN A GUITAR AND RIP A RIFF OR LEAD, BET IT SOUNDS LIKE PURE CRACKLED DIGITAL SH*T ,BET! SINCE YOU GUYS ARE GURUS AND KNOW IT ALL, IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU COULD TAKE THE TIME TO FIX THIS ISSUE , BECAUSE IT IS AN ISSUE WHETHER YOU WANT TO ADRESS IT OR NOT. MY MOBILE IN WORKS JUST FINE WITH ANY OTHER GUITAR APP THROUGH THE HEADPHONE JACK, JUST FINE. THROUGH THE LINE6 APP, IT SOUNDS LIKE PURE GARBAGE. PLEASE ADDRESS THE ISSUE~ OR I WILL POST A VIDEO OF THE ISSUE UNTIL YOU DO. IT'S NOT FAIR FOR YOU TO RIP US OFF JUST BECASUE YOU FILL THE PRODUCT IS OBSOLETE, WE PAID MONEY FOR IT, IPHONE MAKES REGULAR UPDATES , YOU NEED TO MAKE REGULAR UPDATES TO YOUR PRODUCTS SOFTWARE CAMPATIBILITY ALSO. IT'S YOUR RESPONCIBILITY TO THE CUSTOMERS! I BOUGHT THIS TO PRACTICE WITH ON THE ROAD, I HAVE ONE PIECE OF LINE6 GEAR THAT I USE AT HOME TO PRACTICE WITH ,AND I'M ABOUT TO TRADE IT IN FOR A ROLAND CUBE... I HAVE BOUGHT, AND SOLD DUE TO CRAPPY SUPPORT OF KNOWN ISSUES: VARIAX 700. 600.TONE, PORT, POD, PODXT. SPIDER HD 100. V-70 MIC. BOTTOM LINE IS, YOU GOT GREAT SOUNDS, LOVE THE TONES ,BUT THE EQUIPMENT AND SUPPORT IS JUNK. OH, AND I'M NOT A "JUST STARTIN" I'VE BEEN A MEMEBER OF THIS SITE SINCE IT WAS LAUNCHED.

    Mobile Pod / Mobile In Problem

    I just bought one of these , and I will be returning it ... The headphone jack is how I practice, and gig , the issue with it being BEYOND DISTORTED ONCE PLUGGED IN IS A DEAL BREAKER!!! NOW, If you unplug the donegal , and play the sample audio tracks , it comes through perfectly through the headphones , plug it back in and it sounds like pure SH*T!!! HOWEVER this things works with headphones just fine with other software , amplitube, bias , jam up pro, etc. THE BITTER TRUTH ??? Line 6 could care less about fixing this issue, PERIOD!! , they have great sounding gear that half A** works half the time BUT , the worse customer service EVER . If IF , your heart is set on using this donegal with this software , get used to rocking through your phone or pad speakers , because I've tried it on seven different iPhone/pads and it's still the same , oh no it's not my donegal , my friends does it too.
