  1. Me too, but mine wants escape from the room when I start to play :-)
  2. I have deactivated Touch select. I had some peculiar changes in my setup (e.g. the assignment of the buttons Preset/Snapshot), which I attribute to this function. This assignment has not changed since I deactivated it. Thank God it was a rehearsal when it happened to me and not a GIG. If one is not yet so familiar with the helix, one would probably sweat.
  3. I use a FRFR monitor connected to the FOH. On the one hand I want to hear the guitar sound as it is sent to the audience, on the other hand my vocals are also on it. ( otherwise hitting the notes could becomes relatively difficult.:-) ) I don't want an extra monitor box for vocals. The other band members do the same. (The mixer allows 6 monitor mixes)
  4. I use studio monitors for home use. Large stage monitor or FOH boxes should be reserved for the big stage. At home you are better served with nearfield monitors. Than even neighbors can become good friends. ;-) Just my 50 cents.

    Main Guitar

    I had a Variax JTV 69 . With the normal PU's it was a nice guitar - good enough for all of my GIGs. I used it with the Line 6 XT3 live and this was very was very comfortable. The sound of the models never really convinced me, but in the band mix it sounded quite good and saved me from wearing an acoustic guitar. Then I switched to Kemper and I really noticed the difference in sound quality, although the ease of use with the XT-Live was no longer there. It's like it is, a good modeler only deliver a good sound with a good guitar (I do not mean an expensive guitar), so I want to try the guitar profiler first before I decide to buy it.

    Main Guitar

    Some money (about 700-800 bucks) could also be invested in this Guitar Profiler. Then you have all Guitars and many money is left for some other gear ;-) I know it only from corresponding Vids, but have heard fron some professionals, that it should be very good. I'm waiting for a vendor who offer a money back guarantie to try.
  7. The candidate has 100 points! This advice helped, at least now once. My head bows respectfully in front of the Guru. :-) Thanks! BTW: It was necessary also to deauthorize/reauthorize my computer with the Line6 licence manager
  8. Me too ;-) I mentioned to demand with great impatience will not spend a good mood !
  9. Same old story I know from my Kemper days. :-) Announced updates are often demanded with great impatience. I don't think that makes much sense. It neither accelerates the release date nor does it spread a good mood. A company would be ill-advised to expose itself to any pressure from users to adapt the planned development and testing procedure accordingly. I have bought the device as it is now and I am satisfied with it. That it will be further developed was a purchase argument for me but not a condition. There are many reasons where even planned release dates can be delayed. I am looking forward to the new features but can wait ;-)
  10. For recording I don't need the XR16 yet. So no problem to pull the WLAN plug. I do not need multi track recording a thomeat the moment, as I do sometime with another Behringer XR18 and my note book in the rehearsal room I have hardly any performance problems with the I5 - Quad Processor and 8 GB RAM. My control panel does not offer as many options as on your picture. I guess because it was an update from Win 7 or its not a moble device . The GUI is different. At the i3 Win 10 (4GB) Notebook (Suface 3) it works good enough with the same norton security pack as on my desktop. It's a great pity your efforts can't help me. But thanks anyway! I will probably have to say something more impressive words to the support. :-) @Kilrahi: I stopped also fire wall and norton security while installing to test if this could be the reason.
  11. I am still unhappy ! Thank God I don't have to pay you a line fee. ;-) I couldn't find the option "Shutdown Settings" with deactivation of "Save Changes" on my PC. Even if I look at the Windows help and compare it with my screen, I see differences. Maybe because it was an update from WIN7 Pro or because it is German. Anyway, I found a batch file that forces Win10 to shut down completely. A restart now doesn't open the programs that were running at shutdown. I have removed the WLAN stick that I otherwise need to operate my digital mixer (Behringer XR16). Furthermore I changed the Power Settings to "highest Performance". At autostart I deactivated all additional services. Now in a hopeful mood I uninstalled Helix-Native again, deleted all additional data in the user area (program data etc), started the complete shutdown batch file and reinstalled Native. I have become a bit smarter as far as Windows is concerned, but Native called via Reaper still reports the same error. :-( Other AMP simulation VST's work fine with Reaper, so I can leave the Helix LT in the rehearsal room to practice at home. The notebook (on which Native works) is for my old eyes only short time to endure. That was not the purpose of the investment. Obviously I have to wait further until the support is able to send a helpful instruction.
  12. Well, Line 6 isn't a small shop - if it really is a problem in principle, I hope for a speedy recovery.
  13. I canceled everything that has a connection to the Helix native after uninstalling it. This also means the files in Progaramm data (User area) and the found directories. I have cleaned the registry. I confess that I did not find the possibility to deactivate a quick start. (A term I don't know) Norton doesn't complain about anything when it's called. The installer was also clean for Norton. I use Norton for all 5 computers of my family and don't want to change because of Line6. Very rarely I had to check with Norton to see if a complaint was really justified. They usually react quickly. I use Reaper (last version) as host and Norton on my notebook as well. It works fine. One of the first instructions of the support was also to uninstall and reinstall Reaper. I'm surprised the support doesn't respond to the error code information. They simply repeat the instructions to uninstall and reinstall, and finally they gave me a link, incomprehensible to me in this context, which says that it is not necessary to have an internet connection after first registration. The next sentence then is said - quote > "Hello, I assume your network card is not disabled? < unquoted.... which confuses me! I still have the internet connection turned on and off a few times. Before and after the installation with restart or not the PC. In no case I was asked for a new registration but only received the quoted error message. I would expect a question about the registration after deinstallation but after the error message no further action is possible except closing of the window. The DAW is not disturbed. BTW: Thank you for your efforts.
  14. Thanks for trying to help. I'm using Helix Native Vers 2.71 which I downloaded on March 16 of this year. As far as I know, the latest version. The same version runs without problems on my notebook. To disconnect the computer from the net and restart it, do not solve the problem. BTW: I use Norton Internet security and clean the PC every week additional with another program . Hopefully there are no demonic digital posessions :-)
  15. With Helix Native, which worked for 2 weeks on my home desktop, I suddenly had an error message: Failed to connect to DSP engine. Device has not been initialized propely. (see below) So far from support I received 3 times the suggestion to uninstall and reinstall Helix native. I have already done this 5 times and get the same message again and again. This time I received the following 4th answer: "Hi. I assume your network card is not disabled? " with the following link This, by the way, obviously suggests the opposite, isn't it.?? Furthermore, I am able to confirm the additional question that it works on another computer. Is there anyone here who know about this error code and know what to do? So far the support could not contribute to the solution of the problem at the moment.
  16. I am currently experimenting with a GR55 and a Helix LT together. The solution I prefer so far is also as decribed above. Connect the guitar to GR55 via the GK3 cable and send the guitar signal from Guitar-out to Helix Guitar-in. Connect effect output of GR55 connects to the returns of the Helix and uses it as its own signal path in the setting. Mixing the two signal paths in front of the outputs doesn't make sense for me. I'm not sure yet whether I'll send the two signals to the mixer with separate cables or merge them in the Helix. A (common) external expression pedal on the Helix controls a volume block at the end of each signal path.

    Helix LT Workflow

    I use the computer to set up my setup for the Helix LT. It is much more convenient and much clearer. On the device itself the setting is also relatively comfortable and you don't have to rely on the PC. However, I am astonished about the desire to prefer the operation on the device. :-) I played Kemper for years and in this community many people have been complaining and begging for years that a PC editor should be available, as it should be natural for a modern device. This year such an editor has been promised and is eagerly awaited.
  18. I'm newbie too and I'm currently exploring the possibilities of using snapshots for sound changes during a song. This feature seemed to me very handy. It could help to reduce user erros by reducing the amount of the Snapshots of one preset. Special for the Helix LT, where you have no indication at the footswitch. Anyway, there will be no solution to prevent a false handling.
  19. I use Helix LT. The Guitar is connected at "Guitar in" and the bass is connected at "Return 1" with an bassamp in the signal line using the same Volume pedal . I can play only 1 instrument at the same time :-) At the moment both signals are routed to the same output as we are in a rehearsal status with 1 active box. Later I will spend 2 outputs to the mixer. Not to forget to choose "instrument" for the return in the global setting.
  20. I got advice from the Line 6 Support to uninstall the Helix native and install again. I registered the native during the new installing. The second advice was to do the same with reaper, but this was not necessary anymore. Now it works fine on my desktop
  21. Same problem here. I bought Reaper and Helix native. Reaper crashes when I want to use "Helix Native". I've opened a support ticket. But maybe there exist an advice here.
  22. I will follow this thread, because I will have the same application in an acoustic oriented Project. One chanel for acoustic guitar and the other for Guit, Bass or Ukule via Helix LT.
