  1. Yeah. I agree with Ozbadman here. Apple announce when they are releasing and stick too it. The example quoted was a known release plan so at least you knew up front. I have never failed to pick up an iPhone on release day. I definitely have never queued for one as well. No sign of the Helix still. I am actually holding off writing new album material as I wanted to see what I could work up on the Helix!

    Firehawk First Impressions

    I am with you there McB. Haha! That day will never come. Maybe there is an argument for replacing the drummer with a drum machine :D But then a drum machine can't steal your money, clothes and girlfriend so where is the fun in that. Haha!

    Fixed is good for recording and On The Fly is good for live. As mentioned the HD POD series allows for both.

    Hi Just an update on my own post to say that even Line 6 can't answer this. Tried contacting EU support in Belgium and they don't have units to physically test for my issue. They will get them when the EU can buy them apparently but that may be too late for me. I will let you know when I know.

    Hi Bond19 Any luck with this? Seems I can only ask those that actually have a Firehawk. Just an update to say that even Line 6 can't answer this.

I will let you know when I know. Ta Punkster

    Firehawk First Impressions

    Hi Thanks for all your comments. MCBEDALL hit the nail on the head when he said 'He's asking if you tap the tempo in for a delay and then switch patches does the tempo carry over to the next patch or do you have to tap it in everytime you change patches' If you follow the steps and make a note of result it will prove or disprove this. Your help is appreciated, Punkster

    Considering a move to Firehawk

    No problem Bond19 I too will end up with a HD500X (as I have a DT25 as well) and the Firehawk (as it is easy to use). I have recorded a couple of albums just using the FX100. Cheers

    Firehawk First Impressions

    I am thinking of swapping out my HD400 for a Firehawk but there is one think I need to know? It's still not available in the UK but if anyone has one can you run a test for me please? 1. Set up any patch with a delay button in it, i.e. digital delay. Set tap tempo to 180bpm 2. Save the patch 3. Switch to any other patch 4. Tap the tap tempo button to any other setting than 180 bpm, i.e. very slow tap or a very high tap rate. 5. Switch to new patch in step 1. Does the patch selected take the tap tempo you programmed in (in step 1) or does it keep the tempo of the patch you tapped out (in step 4)? This is important because when playing live I need to tap the tempo in before switching patches (very erratic drummer.. haha)! I have an FX100 which doesn't allow this which means you have to switch patch and then tap which sounds stupid as it takes a while for the FX100 to figure out what you are after. By the way the HD400 does this the correct way and will retain whatever setting is tapped in last (not the programmed version). It's a big buying factor for me. Daying that the FX100 is brilliant in terms of programming and changing tones so I expect the Firehawk to be similar. However, without the above I may as well keep the FX100 Thanks people.

    I have a HD400 if you want to trade with the Firehawk? As new, manuals, boxed etc.

    Firehawk Tap Tempo - Must Have

    Hi Big deal breaker for me this. FX100 is really good. Surprised me in fact and have used a combo of tones on new CD... available on iTunes... haha! So Tap Tempo? I need to tap the tempo before I select the 'patch'. So I tap in say 180 bpm on the tap button. I want that to stay as the default tempo for whatever patch I select. This can be done on the HD400 but not the FX100! On the FX100 if I tap out the rhythm and then select a patch it takes the tempo assigned to the patch . No good live. Cheers Punkster

    FX100 or HD400 or Firehawk

    Thanks for info Triryche Tough to demo as no guitar shops as such in peterborough, UK! But I agree it is a personal preference thing. Just sharing what I know about the Amplify and Pod range that I have to help people to decide on where to head. Regards Point 5. In hindsight I think it was a thread discussing Amplifi and HD500x where I think the thread may have gone off piste at some point. It did make me want to ask the question though. Point 9 added again for peoples info as I understand it. HD400 has Line6 Port (which allows control of DT25 and DT50 amps direct from the footswitch). No such port on the Firehawk. Could you the Firehawk FX Loop but not quite the same thing. Brilliant that there is bank up and down switches though as the tapping of 2 FX100 switches to go up and down was prone to error. Independent switching for FX (5 switches) is great as it means I am not limited to just the 4 settings discussed above. Makes it 20 available I think (maybe more in combination) A big requirement for me is to be able to use the Tap function independently of the programmed tone. FX100 tone set with a delay of say 180bpm is locked into the system so I can't switch from A to D (for example) to anything other than 180bpm without tapping again and this is useless when playing live. Hopefully I can tap on intro and then just kick in the delay as required. Hopefully that makes sense. I read somewhere that the tones for Firehawk are in packs. Does this means additional purchases? Outputs look more like the HD400 on the Firehawk but FX100 outputs are comprehensive anyway (other than the Line 6 Port). Wish it had a 'kettle' lead though I guess this bulks up the pedal. Nice to have LCD of loaded tone on Firehawk. HD400 has a proper looper. Fire hawk doesn't I believe. Hope the update helps? Punkster

    FX100 or HD400 or Firehawk

    Firstly, can I say that I think the FX100 is great. I have had many effects / pedals in the past and usually just gone back to Marshall and Guitar and ditch everything else. I do have an HD400 but never really tweaked it much and the PC editor was good but a bit of a faff to use. maybe over complicated for an average user. For the record I have used FX100 for rehearsals and recording (released material) and it is very effective (I reckon it could easily be used live but I have held back due to potential for monitoring concerns). Try and play tones loud when you get the chance as they come alive more than just listening at home. I use it with a bank of settings using the same Amp. So A is Amp only, B is Amp + Volume and Reverb (for lead), C is Amp + Phaser, D is Amp + Delay I too am not sure where to head next with regard to the Firehawk. I have a HD400 and an FX100 (and an Amplifi 75). Something has to go! Some differences I would like to understand though: HD400 has Line6 Port (which allows control of DT25 and DT50 amps direct from the footswitch). No such port on the Firehawk. Could you the Firehawk FX Loop but not quite the same thing. Brilliant that there is bank up and down switches though as the tapping of 2 FX100 switches to go up and down was prone to error. Independent switching for FX (5 switches) is great as it means I am not limited to just the 4 settings discussed above.

Nice to have LCD of loaded tone on Firehawk. Any other advantages / disadvantages people? Which one(s) should I sell to uby the Firehawk.....if any.
  15. Can I Use Amplifi 75 as Speaker Only Output for FX100?
