    Are connection problems now sorted?

    I bought the 75 just after it was launched and yes, the BT connectivity was terrible. I lost patience waiting for a solution and so I sold it. I recently took a punt on a used 30 for a good price and updated the firmware. I am pleased to say Line 6 have finally sorted this out. I'm an Android user if that matters.

    Firehawk FX Power supply

    Yep, expensive and fragile. I got a compatible PS from eBay for a tenner. Been using it (home use) for 18 months now.
  3. My 6 year old Android tablet running ICS isn't supported but works fine. From that I conclude that "supported" doesn't actually mean much as to whether it will work or not, so I'll wager a bag of toffee that the CB will work just fine. :)

    Firehawk Update

    It's been 'all hands on deck' fixing the Helix for the past 12 months. Don't hold your breath.

    Firmware update

    That would be the IOS app? The latest firmware is 1.20.00 (installed on the unit itself).

    Expression Pedal Squeak

    Pictures would be great.

    Post Ideas on Ideascale

    The top 10 suggestions were made over a year ago and there hasn't been any action or feedback. I'm sorry to say that I have no confidence that they are being considered seriously.

    Cable Snake for 4CM, MIDI, Power, Ext Amp Switching

    I put 4 instrument cables and two 9v lines in sheathing for my Firehawk that worked well, a bit bulky though. So I bought a used Horsa 8 way, cut it down to 4m and converted it to a 4 way plus two 9v lines. I'm happy with that.

    Audio Playback Glitches / Jitter

    If it helps, I had the AmpliFi 75 and experienced problems with the Bluetooth dropping and refusing to connect. I've had no such issues with the Firehawk in over a year. Same Android phone, tablet and apps.

    Firehawk FX is abandoned

    A happy bunny here too. Yep it can be improved upon but I'm fine with it as it is. I will say that I won't be as quick to jump in again as I did with the Firehawk and Amplifi. Both needed a couple of updates to get them working correctly. As for future Firehawk updates, I would assume Line 6 have their hands full prioritising all those bugs in the Helix list.

    Firehawk remote app refuses to connect to my Firehawk FX...

    Did the the backup you used have the latest version of the remote app? v 1.3.3 Updated 30 March 2016

    bypass firehawk to get pure tone from my amp

    If your Blackstar has a FX loop then the best was to do this is with the 4 cable method. The FX block in the chain becomes your Blackstar Pre-amp.

    Remote Versions Differences between IOS and Android

    Pleased you have fixed it but my faithful old Motorola Xoom is running 4.1.2 without those problems.

    Expression pedal doesn't switch to WAH

    Out of the box mine was ridiculously difficult to operate so I carefully filed down the rubber bump stops by a couple of millimetres. The switching works perfect now with just the right amount of effort.
