  1. There's a full list of all amps, cabs, mics and FX on Helix (and therefore Stomp) at the link below. It seems to get updated fairly regularly with the new stuff included in each new firmware release and is showing entries for 2.9 already. Scroll to the end for links to cabs, FX and mics: https://dshowmusic.com/line-6-helix-amp-models/

  3. There are indeed. Also lots of unhappy bunnies pitch up here complaining that Helix doesn't cut it, perhaps blaming the tools prematurely. My experience has been as yours: the amp modelling is excellent assuming that the patch is optimally set up. A big assume, unfortunately, as there are so many things that can go wrong, not least cab and mic choices. Anyway, very glad you hit the nail on the head first try, and thanks for saying so in public. Makes a refreshing change :-)
  4. Nothing. Hear what you say about a looper, but I don't use one so not even that. I need to get organised and sell my pedals. I've had Helix long enough now (over 2 years) to know that I don't and won't need them any more. I've learned through trial and error that if Helix doesn't sound 'right' in its replication of a pedal (or amp) then I haven't dialled it in properly yet ;-)
  5. Did not gel with that LW cover... :-( But on a positive note, you could try this patch to get you in the zone. Neck pickup may work best, and ride the guitar volume pot for clean - > OD. Fender glassy.hlx
  6. What guitar are you using (looks like a Strat in your avatar, but can't really tell), what are you monitoring through and please post the patch(es) you are using. Otherwise very difficult to know what is going on... :-)
  7. @BlueD Just following on from Phil_m, here's Line 6's Ben Adrian on how he created the Litigator model:

    Helix 2.9

    That's Pascal's Wager. It assumes that a deity would actually reward such expedient calculation rather than punish it :-)

    Helix 2.9

    We didn't evolve to live in a technologised, industrial, metropolitan society either, but that's what we got :-) What worked on the veldt might not work so well in a democracy, which goes a long way to explaining some of the weirdness of the current era. Logic is an under-appreciated tool for parsing reality.

    Helix 2.9

    It is indeed the only logical position but that does not mean that all humans adopt it :-) As rd2rk rightly observes.

    Helix 2.9

    Agreed. It's what you *do* that matters.The underpinning is less important than the result. Golden Rule rulez, amen.

    Helix 2.9

    querty24 nails it. Logic requires agnosticism. From there, it is a leap of faith, either way :-)

    Helix 2.9

    If the many worlds hypothesis is correct, then elsewhere, 2.9 will already have arrived and this thread never happened. And in all universes where L6 updates exist, they are a gift that keeps on giving :-)

    Helix 2.9

    All a misunderstanding I suspect. And you didn't 'lose' nor did I 'win' an open-ended discussion about the nature of reality :-) Peace & love BBD
