  1. "A major benefit of using a switching power supply is that it can handle far more current (power being pulled out of it) than any transformer-based power supply. Although we had to put power rating labels on each output to satisfy certification agencies (yes, we actually certified these, unlike most companies), the outputs can generally handle far more than the label shows. For example, you can connect a 300mA pedal to a 200mA output, without causing any problems." Quoted from truetone link above.
  2. My cs7 will power my hxstomp with one outlet labeled 500 ma. It's not really a limit on the one spots. It's s switching power supply. I would try a single plug. Make sure polarity is correct. Many line6 adaptors also reverse thr polarity. I had to use 2 adaptors with mine, on to reverse and another that reverses and converts size of plug. Or get a voltmeter and check center is negative.
  3. I think it needs close to 1000ma to operate as I've learned from others.
  4. You may get a ground loop between the amps, it happened to me. (Grounds may connect together at the HX) An iso box from HX to amp will prevent that, should only need it to one of the amps. I purchased an ART DTI dual iso box and used it to both amps (why not). I know it doesn't use Jensen transformers, etc and there are likely better ones out there, but i can't tell the difference.
  5. I use this. I haven't tried my CS7 yet, other pedals using it.
  6. Best to get Helix up to date first then do the BS thing if you have to. Likely next update from L6 is Big Sur compatibility.
  7. Maybe some Big Sur users can respond here. Facebook my be the place to ask. sur
  8. ^^^^ That's the bottom line. In fact, at times I find the 1x12 US Deluxe cab with the Placater Dirty (Friedman BE-100 dirty) sounds the best. Go figure.
  9. I do not have a 112PC or +, but the logic to me is...... Helix models a cab, speaker, and mic. All make a difference in the sound obviously. The PC is a physical cab and no mic, they are modeling the different speakers in that cab. A greenback in a 412 with SM57 will sound different then PC with a green back. I see what you want, load the Line 6 "IR" (stock ones in Helix) and run that in the PowerCab, like you can with a 3rd party IR. Good Ideascale to ask for it. Only issue is then you would have to update PCab with Helix updates to keep everything aligned, or they can provide the proprietary IR for you to load in PC.
  10. I just tested and did get the same error. I then added an EQ (or anything i guess) and then it worked fine. Strange. I exited edit and rebooted Stomp, it works fine. I had the error once and now cannot repeat. Error 0811 or something like that? If I keep adding, at the 3rd amp I get an "out of memory condition [code -2]" which makes sense.
  11. Upon listening on my computer (15 in macbook pro, sound not too bad), I Like the your recording better. The first half sounds fizzy and no mids. Just saying
  12. I would set input impedance to at least 10x mic (22K), then try instr level. I doubt a passive mic puts out line voltage. edit: Looking at SM58 specs 150 ohms, 300 ohms actual (whatever that means). So, try higher impedance as well.
  13. I wish Line 6 did what some other companies do and show a graphic of the actual amp/effect pedal and show the actual position of the dials.
  14. Mine gets warm as well. Not hot by any means, but warm enough to provoke a thought. All working, so must be normal.
  15. This may help. I know what you mean, the Princess (princeton) doesn't have a mid, but line 6 does. My logic says leave on the default setting (ie, princess is at 7), then only use bass and treble? Im not sure, it's a good question. Interesting you mentioned the Champ, so many different versions. I think Line 6 champ is based on the 57 or so tweed? only a volume control, but we still have lots of "tone shaping" with the full controls. What it do know is Line 6 does not include the amps effects (reverb, vibrato, etc) you need to add them as effects after. Edit: Can't help with your second question.
  16. Maybe the next updates will make the "poly" effects more efficient taking less processing power, and refinement of older effects. I think just about every tone can be made with what's in Helix 3.0, at least for most.
  17. I had a failed update, bricked. Floor would not even go into update mode. Line 6 support did not solve either. Finally fixed likely with the disconnect, power off, on reconnect method mentioned in other threads. Friends Stomp failed update today as well. Took multiple times to get it to work. There is something up, a bug, with the update. I hope they figure it out. I Have owned helix since Oct 2015, never had it fail once. Now twice on same update...
  18. Do you see the new amps if editing directly on the Floor without connected to the computer? If so, its "HX Edit" that needs updating as Phil said.
  19. After manipulating the Device Manager on my windows machine, booting helix in safe mode (sort of, wasnt all the way there), hot swapping multiple cables with the updater open, the Helix was finally seen and updated to 3.0. Yipeeeee. Thanks all for the help and advice.
  20. Chatted with service. no solution, opened ticket.
  21. not seen on windows line6 updater either...
  22. updater finally loaded and blank screen will no device to update
