  1. Thanks, I’ll do that. It seems more software related but could be the bank footswitchs too. It seems to happen more often when switching bank direction, e.g. going up 8 banks is fine, but if I go down one bank after going up it double-skips;. And vice versa.
  2. I have the latest 3.11 firmware and I constantly have double-skips when changing banks up or down. I thought I saw this was a bug in 3.10, but it doesn't appear to be fixed. Are others still experiencing this issue?

    Wow, really a complete jerk-off response, clearly when you lept instantly from birth to seasoned professional the stardom went strait to your head... you forgot about all us poor sucker amateurish noobs trying to make it or have fun. Let us all just get out of your way mr. rock god... I must say that with you clearly being a professional... It's intriguing and honoring that you waste your time here with us nobody's on the forum.... so I guess we should say, Thank You?

    Helix HW Latency

    PierM - that is more in line with what I'd expected. it's practically immeasurable in raw pass-through and your signals are the same.

    Helix HW Latency

    Thanks for sharing the link, I personally always find this stuff interesting even if it doesn't really change anything or mean one is actually better than the other. Just some thoughts I had: His methodology seems effective, however the fact he loaded an IR instead on the helix instead of just a clean signal may have impacted the latency. I was a bit surprised to see how far off the wave shape was and that it was inverted between the amp signal vs the modelers signal. I would have expected a fairly similar wave shape, but it was totally different. assuming numbers are accurate, the Boss at 0.5ms is phenomenal latency for anything digital. The helix may have some settings, padding, or other processing ahead of it's actual signal path. or maybe there is opportunity to speed up, 2ms is high for a CPU & Analog to Digital converter so not sure that 2ms is even accurate. Potentially there should be some tests as you add a few blocks and see if things change or compound latency, things might level out. Either way, they are both great modeler units and this is all insignificant to the ear and reality of just playing and using it... like I said, I do like to see stuff like this, so thanks again for sharing.

    Future Helix 2

    Totally agree, I’d go so far as to say this is now mandatory of anything produced 2020 and beyond. If they tried to push out a Helix 2 with no way to wirelessly have complete management over it then I’d wager it would be shredded in reviews and by the community. And something as high-end as a Helix will have to use high-speed WiFi as well, no crappy Bluetooth.
  7. One more tip - Other logitech services tend to stay running in the background, so if closing the main app doesn't work - pull up task manager and make sure no other logitech processare are running and kill any you find.
  8. Make sure you are not running any Logitech software, like GHUB, Setpoint or Options. Logitech causes BSOD's with Helix.
  9. Thanks.. I played for a few minutes and I think it's the later... It's failing on things I purchased from Marketplace. I figured it out by trying to small batch exports and basically anything from the Marketplace is failing... I deleted everything that had the golden pic next to it and the backup was successful... I haven't used them in the last year so probably won't miss em' and I always have an old backup in too. and yes, I believe I'm all matched, I had no issues with the 3.00 update, and I'm just bumping up to the urgent fix 3.01 also, I am logged into HX Edit and I could choose and play the marketplace items so they worked.. it only failed on the backup.
  10. It's not working for me, I'm getting an error I've never seen before. during Backup part of the firmware it says "Error occurred during the backup: "Failed to open license. (code -1130)" "Do you want to retry" I've never seen this before, I have no new IRs or patches in the last 5 updates over 2 years, and everything I do have is paid licenses. there doesn't seem to be anything on the forums about this issue either.
  11. I have Live suite 10 and Native 3.0. I had the same issues when I upgraded. uninstall/reinstall did not work for me. the fix was after uninstall, I had to go through my VST folders and manually delete helix native plugins because the uninstaller didn't remove them, and the new installer didn't over-write them.. once I did this manual plugin delete... I just installed it and everything worked.. had to activate again but that was it.
  12. it's almost always caused by Logitech. do you own a logitech product?
  13. Oh wow! this is impressive, nice work! I'll bookmark this, I have a few new patches I need to make over the weekend and this is a great reference. thanks and if I find any bugs I'll give feedback.
  14. One thing to consider in your choices - the new guitar process goes like this: Arrive at home, admire for 30 seconds, plug in, then begin playing. Play more hours than you probably should since it's a new toy... admire and then go to bed, start over in the morning. With the Helix it's - arrive home, spend next 3 weeks figuring it out, get angry at why it sounds flubby, tinny until you find a decent enough patch... study your butt off (all the time not actually playing any guitar... weeks go by and you are finally figuring out all the quirks & complexities... now spend months watching youtube videos, tweaking, learning, changing your understanding of how sound works, getting berated on forums for being a dolt by some superior helix users with 10K hours under their belt... continuing to struggle for months... spend your entire winter constantly messing with helix to emerge in the spring having lost some of your playing ability since you dedicated 2000 hours toward helix and not playing anything more than a few licks that came to mind. But now the good news is that you are pretty adept at using helix and have some good patches setup so you can finally get back to playing and enjoying guitar. I'm exaggerating a bit here, well maybe - bottom line is helix is a massive time sink.... do you WANT or NEED that right now?
  15. Thought I'd put these here. The Boss waza-air are headphones specifically designed for guitarists.. These would be the best you can get. they ain't cheap. but the are the best. https://www.boss.info/us/products/waza-air/
