    I’ve figured out the random volume loss on presets

    just been on the L6 helix facebook page and this should be addressed in 2.81

    Well done on spotting this - I have been having the same issue since upgrading to 2.8 i have a support ticket open and have forwarded your info hopefully they will sort a bug fix ASAP

    Bug with Joystick After 2.80 Update

    I had the same - try a really quick push of the button - if you push it in slow, it will not respond

    Speaking of leveling presets.,,

    Hi all - FYI I have logged a ticket with Line 6 over my issue with randomly the slight reduction of volume when switching patches - they have just asked me to send over my last backup so that they can try to replicate it at their end - everything else seems ok with 2.8 for me

    I am having the same issue : have tried all sorts of factory resets etc but I get a fading in and lower volume intermittently I have logged a support ticket with Line 6 Although frustrating, I am sort of glad to know it is not just me !!!!!

    2.8 issue - fading in and lower volume

    Hi - did a re-start with re-build and it still does it

    2.8 issue - fading in and lower volume

    Hi - updated to 2.8 last night and all seemed to go ok - However, once I loaded in all of my presets and then scrolling through my own presets I noticed some odd behaviour - there seems to be like a fade in of volume when switching patches and then the patch doesn't sound quite as loud as it should - if I hit the button again then it goes back to normal - it seems to do it intermittently and not every time Anyone else getting this ???

    Pedal placement

    Where in the chain do you recommend I place a tremolo block for best results - before the amp like a stomp pedal or after the amp??? Cheers in advance

    Love for the Derailed Ingrid

    Although the new Cali Texas and Placater are amazing, I have fallen for the Derailed Ingrid - using the 25 greenback cab, my Strat has never sounded so good I set it up quite dirty and then use a gain block to reduce the gain by 10 db for cleaner tones and then another block for a lead boost - sounds amazing and my absolute "new favourite" !!! Now I have found the way to make the helix sound good through headphones at home, I am so lovin this little black box of magic

    using input impedance to control tone

    I am currently using audio tecnica ATH-M20x which are fairly cheap I suppose but produce a reasonable sound when listening to ipad, stereo etc etc - might treat myself to a higher end pair !!!LOL

    Seamless patches

    Ich bezweifele es jemals, da ich annehme, dass es viel Rechenleistung braucht, um einen kompletten Patch zu schalten, wenn man die Parameter einbezieht, die sich ändern könnten - Snapshots ist die Problemumgehung - jedoch ist die Lücke zwischen jedem Preset ziemlich vernachlässigbar und nicht schlechter als jedes andere Multi Effektbox

    using input impedance to control tone

    SORTED - thanks to all for your constructive help - the issue is the headphones i have been using to monitor i have not used the helix live and i just assumed plugging in headphones to the specific headphone jack would get me a perfect sound i decided to use the global eq as if I was live in a bad sounding room to sculpt the sound using a clean fender type sound with pretty flat settings, i tweaked the global hi & lo cuts and with a small tweak on the mids, the horrendous treble has subsided, I can use a "normal" impedance of auto again and even some of the presets sound really usable whereas before they were just awful yet again this shows that the only people who whinge and moan that they cannot get a good sound are the ones at fault, not the equipment !!!! LOL that is all - rock on - cheers for the help
