  1. The usb passthru was what stopped me the last time around. I am suspecting my thunderbolt dock is messing things up. Edit: Nvm, it works fine. Probably had to sudo to forward the usb device.
  2. Would you mind summarizing the steps taken to make hx edit run in kvm? Would be a nice addition for a full linux setup. Updating the helix is one of the few things I need my dual boot setup for these days..
  3. I'm lost track of the number of attempts I had at making this work, but yesterday I finally got it working. A fresh ubuntu studio install 21.04 with wine-staging 6.12. I am suspecting that @anibalriveros suggestion above is what actually did this for me, not the upgrading to the latest ubuntu studio part. Leaving out the dll override for wininet indeed resolves my issues described above, and helix native 3.11 works! These we're the steps taken, from memory # https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2021/05/wine-6-9-released-install-in-ubuntu-21-04-20-04/ sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging wine 'wineboot' sudo apt install winetricks winetricks vcrun2013 gdiplus urlmon wine $PWD/Downloads/HelixNativev3.11Installer.exe Alongside https://github.com/robbert-vdh/yabridge , this makes the linux version of reaper find and load helix native vst3 as you'd expect. One lesson learned, if you are debugging this kind of stuff, is to run reaper from the command line. This makes wine often output details on what it is it is having problems with.
  4. Had another go at this today. The 400 bad request I previously got seems to be gone with the 3.11 version of helix native. Now what seems to happen is that the helix native plugin (both vst2 and vst3) does not actually follow the received redirect (301 Moved permanently) from the line6 servers, which renders the same result in the helix native window as in the image in my previous post. Unsure if this is an issue with my wine setup or what. Seems so close, tho.
  5. Its almost there - using the vst2 .dll version via linvstconvert. Reaper for linux (not through wine) finds it and opens it, but cannot reach the line 6 servers :'( Suggestions?

  6. Half a year later, Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS now shows the Helix as an input device as you'd expect. I am still not able to get any sound from it unless it is chosen as the USB device that should be Master. So what you see in the image does not give me any sound in Reaper. Making Helix the master works, though :shrug:
  7. Here's a few useful links, both for help in decoding the funny names and checking out tones from others for inspiration https://dshowmusic.com/line-6-helix-amp-models/ https://dshowmusic.com/line-6-helix-effect-models/ https://line6.com/customtone/browse/helix/ https://shop.line6.com/marketplace/
  8. Nice! I think I'll stay safe, though, now with everything working, until ubuntu studio fixes it for me xD Yeah, I had a few of those as well. I do to, so its not that big of a deal. I actually think pulseaudio was getting in the way somehow for me.. (?) A peek inside the ubuntustudio-controls script also revealed they seem to be killing everything with regards to sound before booting it up again to get a consistent startup. Having to wire all this up again was becoming a pain, so it made me discover https://github.com/SpotlightKid/jack-matchmaker
  9. Half a day later, the stars align! And I'm reamping like a boss with the helix on ubuntu studio eoan 19.10 And you were quite correct, @glegodais, it needs to be 0e41x4248. Here are the steps I took to make it work. For some reason I am only able to get an output signal from the helix when attaching things in jack if I choose the HELIX as the "USB device that should be master", and not with the AudioFuse set as the master, even if the helix still appears in the jack interface and I wire it correctly. Suggestions? Attached photos of the working configuration if someone is curious. Thanks a bunch for your help!
  10. Hmm, sounds like what I'm already doing, but with my AudioFuse interface.I have Jack Master Device set to USB Jack Master but USB device that should be master is where I believe the issue is, because there is no Helix in the list, just my AudioFuse extrernal usb interface. Bridge USB Devices to Jack when Plugged In is checked. With e.g. Carla open when I plug the helix in I can see that it recognizes it as a midi device, as a capture/playback slot appears for the midi, but nothing else. `lsusb` shows the device is recognized though `Bus 003 Device 019: ID 0e41:4248 Line6, Inc. HELIX` EdIt: I see this in dmesg as I plug in the helix which seems like the issue you have been patching?

  11. @gleogodais And by working you mean it’s discovered as a sound card and you can e.g. reamp over usb? That’s what I was aiming for coming here. If so it might be just my understanding of jack vs pulseaudio vs alsa that is lacking.. Care to explain how you go about setting things up?
  12. Can't believe what I'm reading - is this actually working on linux :D @jensverwiebe Are these instructions still the way to go as of today? Someone seem to have it working out of the box on fedora https://line6.com/support/topic/30896-helix-as-interface-on-linux/?do=findComment&comment=328378. I'm on ubuntu studio 19.10 atm, using jack, that does not seem to recognize the helix floor for anything other than midi. Is there anything special to consider other than what is described in https://line6.com/support/topic/4426-line-6-with-linux/?tab=comments#comment-310804, it being a lowlatency kernel (5.3.0-46-lowlatency). I reckon I should go about changing the clone to git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-eoan.git. Anything else?
  13. Done! Update tones: http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Support-updating-published-tones-you-own/620431-23508 Delete tones: http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Support-deleting-published-tones-you-own/620432-23508
  14. If I create a tone and publish it, is there a way to modify the published tone so others can see my changes (without changing the tone's name and publishing another)? Or do I have to create new versions of the same tone, e.g 1, 2, 3, by renaming it and publishing again. Alternatively, is there a way of deleting a published tone, so I can republish another with the same name? Best regards, Torgeir
