  1. Hi to all, yesterday Helix Native came out. I installed it on my iMac and during the activation came an error. Authorized computers 0, but lifetime activations limit reached. In my profile at L6 are all computers listed as deactivated. Support ticket is allready opened. Is this a bug or just simply my fault by reinstalling Windows a few times? Greetings

    Helix 2.9

    Oh yeah! @Digital_Igloo Don’t feel tied the knot. Please don‘t justify. It‘s all up to you and the regulations of L6 how much and if we get infos. Please guys and girls, stay focused and let L6 do their work. Or do you like a release with bugs? Every week an update just to bring the software further step by step. Other companies use customers as testers. I am glad L6 does not!

    Helix 2.9

    Yeah, that’s the thing. Never officially announced. I am glad to read the programming efforts even if it‘s not announced yet. Maybe a 2.90 will not come because of problem. Maybe instead 2.91 or 2.92 or whatever. Only L6 knows ;-) Better to wait until it‘s ready instead of hunting a release date or even an official announcement. ;-)

    Helix 2.9

    @Digital_Igloo Thanks for all the infos so far. There are users here who like to read any info about 2.9 and they are glad about the info. Some users want more. Well I understand them but please you DON‘T have to justify your work or how and when the release will be. Don‘t let them take you to this point. Helix works fine as it is! I bet many users here (me too by the way) don‘t use every single function or even know any single function. For god’s sake let L6 do their work!

    Helix 2.9

    Same for me :-) The silence will not change. It took a while for me to accept. You can write whatever you want. L6 reads it for sure but don’t await any reaction as long as you stay on a normal level. I guess we will get more info as soon as bugs are getting less and they are close to release. Sure „soon“ is a very wide time gap and depends on how you see it. And of course we would have enough time to test it currently. Corona will give us sadly a bit more work free weeks.

    Helix 2.9

    @spikey: Can you remember a year ago when I was going nuts because of the time lag and the silence? ;-) You were able to argument good and bring me down again. THIS year you are in the same situation than I were. Take it cool. Line6 is working on the update and every day we are getting closer to the release. We will not get more usefull infos until it's very close to be bug free. You can pee a rope... you can lollipop a circle... or however you name it. Do you think L6 will work faster because of your anger? NO :-) Do you think you will get more infos because of your writing? NO :-)
  8. You need to enter manually the update mode by pressing footswitch 6 + 12 at the same time while switching the helix on.
  9. In my case i got a boot failure.... anyway... switched off helix (after 30min no progress) switched on by holding footswitch 6 and 12 to enter the update mode... then it worked.. update successfull
  10. Thanks for the info... I am asking because I had no interface for firmware installation. It came not with my used bought jtv-59. With the helix connected to the pc I was able to play with the sounds but no reset or downgrade and upgrade. Reset is not possible without installing the firmware. It‘s changed since 2.0. I guess the interface should arrive the next days. Let‘s see how it works out for me. ;-)
  11. Hi to all, just a question: Is it sensefull to downgrade the firmware to 1.9 or below? For the sound, as it seems, yes BUT will it be still compatible with the Workbench HD and the Helix in that way as it is now? Watching a few youtube videos made me curious about the sounding. It seems the HD firmware sounds different. Not bad at all but that different that it‘s worth a try. Regards PS: If the answer is yes, what version should I choose?
  12. To be honest, I returned to a tube amp. FRFR is good but did not bring me „that“ sound. For home recording I use Helix Native with an IR of my cab. Works and sounds for my taste. ;-)
  13. Thanks for the info :-) Let‘s pray that their heads will stay where they should stay :-)
  14. Good to know that there are features what were not ready for 2.80 ;-)
  15. To all interested users: If you are Helix user and registered allready your device. Helix Native is good priced now. $99 is good BUT summer sale with $30 off makes it really interesting. For me it was time to catch it ;-) $83 (€74) incl. taxes is perfect! Instead of 99 or more (if you have no helix registered)
  16. Next topic, back to the roots: Line6 staff, you have the ball in your hands. Any news what you are allowed and willing to give about the status or effort or however you call it?
  17. I gave up asking... we have to accept, that the programmers just have no time or/and are not allowed to give a little info. As DI wrote it‘s much of code to rewrite for the new core. The missing PR makes it surely not easier. Info is given volunteerly. ;-) I guess the more we asking, the later it will come. IF this is a reason I have to say sorry because my mouth was way too wide open.
  18. Ok that‘s then some kind of tribute I guess. Well you have a good work to do (or allready did) to sound like David. All the nuances of his playing... oh man... Great musicians those who are still alive and those who sadly died. It‘s not „my“ music but who cares? The masterminds behind the music are amazing!!
  19. You like to copy someone‘s sound? „I like to sound like someone but I can’t play like him“ It‘s a live task that will never end. The same on guitar playing or finding „your“ sound. Develop you own style with the techniques of the big ones ;-)
  20. Maybe some people don‘t agree but the choice is better indeed.
  21. BTW: I used the firehawk for a few weeks... it‘s cool and it works... bad thing, editing was ONLY possible on ipad.
  22. The idea itself is not bad so far but a much easier way if a tablet could communicate directly with the helix. Possible via bluetooth or wlan. None if them is located in the helix. Maybe L6 plans some kind of additional dongle for helix to make it possible? I dont know if it’s possible in the software to activate and communicate with such a dongle.
  23. I partly disagree as well.... the best gear makes you not the best player. If you have a good gear (e.g. Helix) you can get a very good sound or let‘s say „your“ sound without buying amps, cabs, effects. Play around with settings, watching youtube tutorials brings you a big step further. Edit: What if the amp quits working? With a good helix setlist you can plug it direct into the PA ;-) I do it always this way. An IR of my cabinet and the same patches as with amp. It‘s not the same sound but close ;-)
  24. Oh man... well then finally some intelligent and sadly true words as it seems :-( Please L6 if possible don‘t tease us next time not that long. If it gets not ready in the time period, could you then inform the users. Thank you! :-)
