  1. To be honest, we should all keep our head down because we get a free update with a lot of changes ;-) As Mr. Igloo wrote, there is thanksfully a little money in the background what makes it possible that way.
  2. I mixed nothing ;-) Line6 = 6 in a line = 666 The pure evil LOL But I dont care.
  3. Line6.... 6 days, 6 weeks or 6 month.

    Helix into Front of Amp

    It‘s not a problem so far. I use the HD100 amp with the power amp connector to leave the modeling on the amp as it is and not use it. For the Helix i created effects as you would normal use. For example: Helix input, distortion, amp simulation (no cab or IR) and out to the amp. Currently I use it this way but with the upcoming 2.50 version it‘s possibke that the legacy section gives a good sound as well to quit using the amp sim. Or maybe amp sim and legacy... I don‘t know yet. Single cable method is prefered as well and the sound is good. For sure the guitar is a big part of the sound as well ;-)

    Expression Pedal Recommendations

    I use a mission sp1-l6, a boss volume pedal and a no name from thomann. all work fine but the mission is the best one.

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    Mr. Igloo could you give us a time how long could it take. Within February or later? Would be nice ;-)

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    Come on Mr. Igloo give us a possible release date. People need to leave the computer to go working, make the household, look after the kids, and so on. For us Helix users is the controversal update the elixir of life :D :D :D If some users agree maybe the cradle of life :D :D :D What's for sure: 2018 ;)

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    Not really ;-) Is it more comfortable to follow this thread http://line6.com/support/topic/18284-latest-helix-firmware-250%E2%80%94coming-soon/ to get an email notification when the update is ready?
  9. I want it too ;-) Someone from Line6 told it will be released shortly after the NAMM. Are we talking about days, weeks or month? And of course it depends how far the beta is. Maybe or hopefully we will get an answer soon to solve the riddle ;-)

    JTV Firmware Update

    It‘s diffrent yes. Maybe I wrote wrong. Simply Helix can not update the Variax. Monkey sees the Variax connected to PC via Helix ;-)

    JTV Firmware Update

    Right! With Helix (2.21) you can use Workbench. Monkey sees the Variax but can not update the firmware. I guess it‘s a USB MIDI problem on the Helix. Maybe some wrong MIDI adresses‽ Hopefully Line6 makes it possible to open Helix firmware for future Variax firmware updates. ;-)

    Updating a JT Variax firmware Thru Helix?

    Partly true... monkey recognize the variax connected through helix to update but there is (in my case) a midi error when starting to upload the firmware.

    Spider Valve HD100 soldering

    A litte noise is ok ;-) This is too much... way too much.

    Spider Valve HD100 soldering

    No lights near the amp or near me while moving around

    Spider Valve HD100 soldering

    I am located in Tyrol, Neighbor of Salzburg ;-) I know what you mean.. just let me explain why I use anyway the modeling on the HD100. Running the front input gives me a warmer and brighter tone and of course a fast way to use the EQ. The Helix is good but there is still a diffrence in the sound. EQ can not be easy controlled. Maybe I am using too much of these things and it sould be really the power amp connector. My ears are open for a good solution or maybe just a hint how to get out the best sound what is possible. I agree, the wires inside could catch an extra signal. They are double shielded but who knows. What about using the ground shift buttons on the Helix or the amp? If this does not work, the solution is clear. Deactivate the connector at the back and that sould it be. Strange and still a miracle: Why just with Helix and diffrent guitars that annoying humming?! If the guitars are connected direct to the amp (my newly installed port or the original one) there is silence... pure silence. Just as it should be. Greetings
