  1. It would be a hugely useful enhancement if the Helix looper *could* sync to incoming MIDI clock. I too am a BeatBuddy user, and having BB come into a Helix return in front of the looper with the loop actually synced would be fantastic!
  2. Installed Helix Edit 2.90, Helix 2.91 Firmware and Helix Native 1.90 (Win 10 64b). All installs and the backup restore went smoothly. No other issues immediately observed. Thanks Line 6 for a quick hot fix (2.91) and even more for continuing to evolve and improve the Helix!
  3. I just want to say "Thank You" for this thread!! I was wondering why the '000 Flat' patch on my Powercab 112+ sounded anything but flat. Reason (as per posts above): the subsetting in the patch was not FRFR (it was one of the LF modes) and so the tweeter was not on. Doh! I had let this slide for awhile as I was loving all the other "speaker" sounds. However, one of my important applications does require an actual flat (FRFR) response, and I was really starting to wonder if the (my?) Powercab could deliver. This thread solved it for me. Many thanks!
  4. So far (as of 20191021) you cannot do this. I would love to see stereo DT25/Powercab+ via L6 in the future! More info here: https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Allow-DT25-or-DT50-and-PowerCab-to-be-a-Stereo-Pair/966279-23508

    Helix II

    I declared the question of wireless forever solved last month when I paid $40 for a brand new small send/receive pair that works great. I would have thought I was the last one to arrive at the party, but perhaps not!
  6. FYI re: Helix and control of DT25/50: (as of Helix FW 2.82 and HX Edit 2.82) If L6 Link is connected, the DT25 disregards MIDI commands to the power section (Topology, Power Amp, Tube Config). This means the legacy Helix template preset 'DT25-DT50 Remote', which is programmed to offer footswitch commanding of the DT power section (via MIDI messages) *will not work* when the L6 Link is connected. So, be aware! You can, however, save 8 different power section setups (Topology, Power Amp, Tube Config) in Snapshots and recall them from the Helix over the L6 Link. You cannot (per my experimentation) command the DT25 power section via footswitch buttons (over L6 Link). Unlike most other parameters, the Helix won't let you assign these to a footswitch. In summary, using L6 Link, you *can* set up your Helix to give you DT25 power section variations at your feet, and that is (must be) done via Snapshots. This info was confirmed by both experimentation and consultation with Line 6 Support. Now you know (if you didn't already)! Since there are 8 Snapshots, but 16 possible combinations of Topology, Power Amp, Tube Config Topology (x4) Tight, Loose, ZNF, Resonance (I-IV) Power Amp (x2) A or AB Tube Config (x2) Triode or Pentode you won't be able to put every possible combination into a single preset. Attached are 4 preset files : DT25 cA 01.hlx 8 Snapshots of Class A setups, varying Topology and Tube Config DT25 cAB 01.hlx 8 Snapshots of Class AB setups, varying Topology and Tube Config DT25a cTri 01.hlx 8 Snapshots of Triode setups, varying Topology and Power Amp DT25a cPen 01.hlx 8 Snapshots of Pentode setups, varying Topology and Power Amp Enjoy!

  7. Yes, thanks, I'm aware of the Line 6 Ideascale, which I applaud. It's a great way to both capture/save the ideas and to provide the users perspective on how many ideas there are competing for consideration!
  8. Thanks for the comments. Using snapshots to effectively turn off the paths I don't want to hear at the moment seems like it is probably the most efficient way, lacking that "magic check box". If each path ends with a gain block (during development at least) it's reasonably straightforward to set up the snapshots to effectively "solo" each path.
  9. Hi. I wonder if there is a "wizard's trick" which can be used to allow quick monitoring of the path/block output at a chosen point in a complex Helix patch. IOW, I would like to *very quickly* check out the sound at a given point along one of my paths in order to judge what that path is contributing towards the total. In my ideal world, any block could be radio-buttoned-checked to have its output sent directly to the mains for listening, then un-checked to return things to normal. Since this functionality per se is not present, I wonder if anyone knows a tricky-trick to have a similar effect with minimal time/effort.
  10. Still on the "Can't be done?" list (for confirmation or disproof): 1. Adding common post-processing to the 3-paths as shown above. 2. Same idea(s), but with 4 paths.
  11. Yes, I like that. You've created the 3-path version of what I described. Thank you very much! I appreciate also the pithy comment re: how the the gain blocks are the key to creating the path splits. Being still new to the Helix, such little insights save me alot of potentially lost time.
  12. Hi, What I would like to do with the Helix is to take the guitar signal in and process it with a block (e.g. a compressor, or the Wah), and then fork that processed signal into 3 or 4 separate FX paths (e.g. 1A, 1B, 2A or 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B) before having the final summed result go to the outputs. I realize I could get the sonic equivalent by duplicating blocks (e.g. 3 or 4 compressor,s or 3 or 4 Wahs) at the start of each line, but that is what I'm trying *not* to have to do. I get the impression that this cannot be done, at least not directly. Is that mistaken?
  13. OK, thank you for your comment!
  14. Hi. When using onboard EXP1 and EXP2, changing between them via the Toe Switch, i encounter the situation that in order to change from one to the other I always have to leave the source by moving up to 100% (in order to get to the Toe Switch) and then subsequently enter the destination at 100% (upon the first tiny move of the pedal after switching) because that's where the pedal is after activating the Toe Switch. Is there any way around this? For example, is there a function that I could assign to one of the stomp footswitches that will toggle the Pedal between EXP1 and EXP2 (and back) without having to move the Pedal itself (to activate the Toe Switch)? Put another way, I would like to switch the Pedal between acting as EXP1 or EXP2 -without- the act of switching in-and-of-itself altering the current value of either EXP1 or EXP2. Can it be done? If so, I appreciate a few words about how to do it. Thanks!
  15. Also, great discussion of Re-amping Through Helix on p. 54-55. Very nice to be able to record wet and dry at once via USB. Good design!
