    Helix to run bluetooth Headphones

    As already said, it's just bluetooth latency. You may like to take a look at these headphones, they're pretty good, latency of around 17ms which is livable-with for me. https://steelseries.com/gaming-headsets/siberia-840 Bear in mind that if you are also planning to use some sort of wireless guitar link, the combined latency of both together will stack. -

    Amp Model List?

    I'm looking for a list of the real amps modeled in the TT, specifically the 1993 Solo 100 Head, but can't seem to find one anywhere. Thanks. -

    Happy Valentine's Day Helix!

    I just want to wish my Helix a very happy Valentine's day! It's our first together, and although we had our differences to start with, it's been nearly a year now and I'm still smitten. I forsee a long and mutually loving future together. -

    Happy Valentine's Day Helix!

    Hmm, not sure the Mrs. would approve of that one. Nah, she's perfect as is. Well, until the next update of course. :) -

    Should I buy a helix?

    It's a very personal decision, maybe ask yourself some other questions. How happy are you with the tones you're getting from your current equipment? How keen are you to experiment with new amps, equipment blocks, routing etc. because to get the best out the Helix takes a little work. How much time do you spend playing? I'm only a home player, sometimes recorder, but I'm delighted with my Helix and would replace it without a second thought, (heavens forbid!) But I enjoy experimenting, have quite fussy ears, and spend 4 - 8 hours playing regularly, so Helix is money well spent for me. As to output, I mostly use headphones, I didn't like the way it sounded through my vox. I will eventually go down the FRFR rout, but don't really have the space right now. I'm tempted to simply advise you to get one, but that's because I love mine. At the end of the day, only you can decide. Best of luck. (GET ONE!!!) oops. :o -
  9. I've gone through the Helix Rack & Controller manual and can't find what I'm after. Is there a way to confirm a footswitch assignment other than running over to the helix and pressing knob 6 before it times out? A long press of the footswitch to confirm would be useful. It seems a strange omission given how much you can do with the controller, I feel I must be missing something. Thanks. -

    Copying chains of effects

    No it's not possible. But whatever you do, don't complain about it here, or you'll be flamed by fanboys insisting that you don't need such a thing, and are probably a bit thick for even suggesting it. I however agree with you, the copy/paste functionality is sadly very limited. It shouldn't stop you falling in love with the Helix though, it really is a thing of beauty. :) -

    V2.50 installation procedure

    Clear as mud, as always. -

    Curious - how do you all feel about 12 pinned posts?

    Yeah, you're right. This Line 6 forum's maintenance has always been on the sloppy side, great gear though. :) -

    Does the helix have an audio in?

    Does the helix have an audio in for a cd/mp3 player etc? Thanks

    Cautions about 2.30's new full backup feature

    Yes we're missing it, because we weren't told about it BEFORE the update, were we? -

    Cautions about 2.30's new full backup feature

    This also occurred to me, but stupidly, I assumed that since Line 6 didn't mention it in their update instructions, they'd take all of this in to account and the new presets/changes would be there anyway. I mean, what the hell is the point of providing us with new patches/tweaks and then giving us all instructions which overwrite them?? How much does "If you would like the new prestets/changes DO NOT RESTORE FACTORY PRESETS. Here's how....." cost? So now, if I want these new presets I have to fart around updating and restoring all over again? Oh well, at least it's a nice simple user friendly process, ay. Excellent coms there guys, thanks a bundle. -

    HD500X to HELIX Effects Worth It?

    Absolutely right. The way it responds to your playing is unlike anything I've ever experienced before, honestly, it's brought me to tears(of ecstasy) on a few occasions. -

    HD500X to HELIX Effects Worth It?

    I was also unsure whether to move from the HD500X to Helix, but having done so in March this year I totally agree with cclement and am very pleased I upgraded. Although I'm going to contact Line 6 regarding my unit lacking the "Fresh pine scent" mentioned above. :( :) -

    I bet the Helix cannot replicate this tone

    Helix Controller

    I'd like some more details about the Helix controller, such as whether it's powered by the Helix or needs a separate supply, but I can't find it in amongst the products section of this site. I've found the FBV 3 but I think that's a different product, it does have an expression pedal though and I don't think the Helix Controller does, so maybe that would be a better option. Would it do just a good a job or am I better off with the dedicated controller? Thanks

    I can solve any Helix problem you have........

    Fantastic! I really feel we're getting somewhere now. :) Do you have many hands yourself Peter? Anyone we'd know? -

    I can solve any Helix problem you have........

    Well, hollis did delegate to you so I suppose that'll have to do. So, a good sharp axe and an opportune moment then, righty-ho. Do you not think he'll miss them at all? ;) -

    Wow, that's terrible, I had no idea. Thanks. Even worse though, I've got no mother, basement or bitters. :( Thank God for hollis ay. :) -

    I can solve any Helix problem you have........

    I would very much like to replicate the tone used in the song "Message in a Bottle" by the 1970s/80s British pop group The Police, but I never seem to be able to get it just right, there always seems to be something missing, or something there which shouldn't be. Can you help? -

    Autumn Leaves (P90 Les Paul into "Stone Age" EH-185)

    Very nice indeed. First tune I've heard on here for a while that didn't make my ears bleed. :) Thanks. -

    Locking mains cable

    I always worry about that sort of thing doing more damage than good, breaking the socket, pulling the unit off/over or slamming it into a wall etc. I never use the securing screws on PC sockets either, for the same reason, but I'm possibly a bit more clumsy than you. :) -
