  1. I did a reboot, then a global reset. Both were no go's. Then I rebooted holding the Mode and Tap buttons to go into Update Mode (i was actually looking for safe mode, but did that on accident lol) Then after I rebooted again, the volume knob started working again! yay!
  2. I opened a ticket on the volume knob issue just in case.
  3. I'm getting this as well. The volume knob is set to multi, but it's not controlling anything :( *sad face... nothing usb, nothing guitar input related..nothin' *very sad face
  4. make sure you update the helix edit. They won't show up in the Helix edit if you don't update that too.

    I'm really loving the Purple. It might be my new favorite. It's just tight and chunky. I liked the red too, but the purple really does it for me.
  6. for high gain, I like the ANGL Meteor panned hard right, and mix it with most any other high gain amp panned hard left. Then I use an Ownhammer orange 4x12 and a 2x12 IR on either amp. (I stick to orange, because my real cab is an orange 2x12)... It sounds massive. The ANGL is just naturally darker than pretty much all the other high gain amps so it just sits in really well with just the defaults. Maybe some minor tweaks to suit ones taste. Boom! monstrous sound in like 5 minutes. (i do use a tube screamer and kinky boost in front for extra tightness as well) ..reverbs vary.

    Helix 2.9

    If Line6 is anything like my job and has security requirements, then they probably rushed to get everyone setup with vpn to work from home with. Then they would just rgr into a machine in their datacenter...if they have a datacenter.. It just depends on how the company is setup.. It's rather small compared to the company I work for so it might have a lot fewer security restrictions.... they may not even have a datacenter. It would be interesting to know how Line6 functions, but they could never tell the details due to legal matters. Technically no software developers and whatnot HAVE to be under one roof. They could all in theory work remote. Some of them were probably already setup to do so.

    Helix 2.9

    but can it make toast? I'll only be happy when I can switch patches by merely thinking it.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. HA! and now I see the forums change swear words to something else. hahaha I didn't type lollipop That's hilarious.
  13. I have no doubt the modelling is top notch coming from Neural DSP. They make good lollipop. Just check out their archetype plugins.
  14. 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
  15. 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 )
