  1. The 'Plus' allows you to load IR's into the powercab itself. I use this for some patches in helix, as it frees up needing to use a cab block in the helix, I can just use a custom IR on the Powercab+
  2. Since upgrading to 2.90+ (currently on 2.92), I have two presets that I need to hit twice before they'll work. So It may not be related to the tone knob as much as related to activating the preset. My guess is this that issue. The double-select issue. Try adding a different amp or effect to one of the presets and see if you need to select the preset twice for the new effect or amp to also activate. One thing I'm going to try later today is a factory reset and then a restore from backup to see if that resolves the double-press issue for the two patches I have. I'll let you know if it works.
  3. When creating a preset in Helix, change the input block from Multi to 'Variax' or 'Varix Mags'. The 'Multi' input block simply takes what the variax is currently manually set for. If you have the modeling on, it takes, that, if the modeling is off, it takes that. If you want a preset where you can change between the modeling and the magnetic pickups via snapshot, you need to have two input blocks. One set for 'Varix Mags' and the other for 'Variax'. Then use a volume block to control how much mix you want from one or both input blocks. This method not only lets you switch from magnetcs to modeled via snapshots in a preset , it also lets you mix modeled and magnetics at the same time.
  4. Awesome. Thanks. Works great.
  5. Is there a way to assign more than one action to a stomp? For instance, I have two snapshots, one clean, one distorted. I want to create a loop with the distorted snapshot but immediately switch to the clean snapshot once the loop has been created. So is there a way to assign a ‘play loop’ function AND a change to snap X on one stomp switch?
  6. Is there an effect or technique in helix to introduce Latency to a path? For instance, if I want to split the signal from the guitar to two amp models, but I’d like one of the amps to get the signal maybe 30ms or so later than the other amp.
  7. Are the new Command center HX Looper options a global setting or a per preset setting? I.e. What I'd like to do is for each preset that I need to use snapshots and the looper with, is in stomp mode, be able to assign 2-3 switches with looper functionality (one switch for Record/Overdub and one for Play/Stop, and on some presets use a third for 1/2 speed), and then use the rest of unassigned switches under that preset for snapshots and/or stomp settings. In the read me though, there is the warning: "IMPORTANT! Although stomp mode switches can be assigned to multiple functions, to avoid unintended behavior, we strongly recommend HX Looper commands be assigned to empty footswitches." This is ambiguous to me. Does this mean if I assign two switches in stomp mode with my looper functions those switches cannot be used for anything else in any other preset? Or does this just mean that I should not also have a stomp bypass or snapshot also set the any of the switches I assigned the looper to in that same preset.
  8. The main reason for me is I have a 112+ and use custom IR's in the powercab. If i plug direct in to the Helix, I'd lose the IRs.
  9. This is happening to me as well. I can’t manage variax settings in the app. As soon as I select the variax block, it crashes. This started for me as well after upgrading to 13.1.2
