    Helix 2.9

    but can it make toast? I'll only be happy when I can switch patches by merely thinking it.
  2. The price is on par with other modellers and whatnot on the high end market. they announced so early and have the pre-order option, because they want to get more capitol upfront lol I don't think they're a big company right? I actually have no idea.
  3. lol the looks are pretty slick to me. There's something about the compactness that I like. But i don't buy modelers for the looks. Still prefer the helix deign though. It's just hard to beat.
  4. the "neural capture" seems to be the most interesting feature. "Capture, share and download your favorite rigs’ sounds. Equipped with our unique biomimetic AI technology, Quad Cortex can learn and replicate the sonic characteristics of any physical amplifier, overdrive, and cabinet with unprecedented accuracy." But man.... the wording they use in their ads. "best ever.... Unprecedented! ..as good as it gets!" .... they sound like a bad infomercial. I'm sure it'll be a good piece of gear, but instead of telling me it's the best thing ever made, just show me what it can do and how it sounds.
  5. HA! and now I see the forums change swear words to something else. hahaha I didn't type lollipop That's hilarious.
  6. I have no doubt the modelling is top notch coming from Neural DSP. They make good lollipop. Just check out their archetype plugins.
  7. Yeah I'm mostly wondering if the DT adds that much more to the helix in both situations for recording & live situations vs an FRFR setup, and how I would best recreate the live sound when recording direct... Or if it's like 10% just better than a power cab/FRFR setup. I've never tested a power cab or another FRFR so I can't compare. If the DT is just a tad better than an FRFR then I feel like maybe I should just sell it, and simplify my setup. I also have an orange ppc2x12 cab too that I love, and I could use with the helix/DT. Then just use an orange 2x12 IR in a separate signal chain for recording or going to the house. hmmm.... Or I could use my marshall and go direct into the fx loop since it's a higher wattage than the DT. ...more...power! lol I'm short a few cables to try all this out since I tossed some stuff after moving lol
  8. I guess it's more Guitar> Helix L6 link> DT OUT> Helix FX loop return> helix cab sim> helix out to an FRFR (and have the DT hooked up to a load box )
  9. Actually, another dumb question. Would it be more beneficial to go guitar> helix> FX loop send to DT guitar in> DT out to Helix FX loop return> Helix cab sim> to an FRFR (If one wanted to make use of both the DT topologies and the Helix cab sims or IR's) or maybe guitar>helix fx loop send> DT floop return,> DT OUT> helix fx loop return> helix OUT Or something like that. etc.. I'd have to play with the signal chain
  10. ok yeah that makes sense! I just kept reading posts here and there about turning the cab modelling off on the DT when paired with a helix and that made me wonder, but seems like that was just for the xlr out. like here: http://rome2.github.io/dtedit/ you see the cab model parms.
  11. oh wait. does the cab sim only get applied to the cab sim out and not the out going to the cab? (the manual doesn't really seem to say. I may have missed it though when I skimmed it)
  12. Hi! So just wondering. Is the dt-25 cab similar to an frfr? Just curious since the DT's have cab modelling built in. or is it more like a regular guitar cab that your just throwing a cab model on top of? Anyway, dumb question. But I'm curious.
  13. LOL wow, It's over 9000!!....oh wait not quite. So close!
  14. The helix does control all the amps parameters. It's just kinda buried in a menu. Go to your OUT block on the helix, and in Helix Edit you'll see a menu I think Phil_M or Digital_Igloo (I can't remember who) posted that the helix does bypass the built in preamp of the DT if the L6 link is connected. It all worked pretty great for me. ...but since I'm in an apartment and have no band, my DT will still sit here and collect dust for the time being lol :(
  15. Daumn! It's fantastic. We don't talk bass that much on here, but it's exactly what I've wanted for a bass sound all this time. Thank you line6! It's so plug and play. I barely have to tweak anything, and it's so fat a huge sounding. lol
