  1. Thanks Line 6 Another easy and painless upgrade and some great new delays & reverbs
  2. How about something like this to give you additional MIDI ports http://www.midisolutions.com/prodqth.htm The MIDI Solutions Quadra Thru is a 1 in 4 out MIDI Thru Box. All MIDI messages appearing at the input are sent to all four Thru outputs. Active circuitry cleans up any skewing of MIDI data bits that has occurred at the input, ensuring reliable operation in setups that require daisy chaining or long cable runs. The Quadra Thru is MIDI powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most MIDI products (see FAQs - Power and FAQs - LED for more information). A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.

    128 IRs

    Line 6 do give you some free IRs you can get the Allure pack here https://uk.line6.com/allure/
  4. I’ve used a lot of amps and effects over the years, here’s my favs For a long time I ran a Boss GT5 into a Marshall 30th Anniversary stack The Marshall is MIDI controllable so this was controlled by the Boss My guitars had MIDI pickups on them and this fed a Roland Guitar Synth into a small PA, speakers either side of the Marshal for live the Boss controlled everything so 1 pedal tap changed me from guitar to sax/strings/organ Great sounds, way heavy and laborious setup and strike rig at gigs I then changed the Boss to a Pod XT then HD500x and ran this for several years I’m currently running all guitars through a Helix Floor into Jam Origins MIDI Guitar (brilliant) running on an old iPhone through USB to camera connection kit, Helix controls all synth sounds for live This goes straight into Alto powered FRFR (need 2nd one for stereo now ;) ) This setup is so easy to use and sounds brilliant, consistent and one trip in and out for gigs (remember them) For synth sounds Helix mutes guitar to main outs and routs clean compressed guitar to iPhone In studio I use the Jam Origins MIDI Guitar VST plugin - better than hardware converter If anyone wants to setup Helix with Jam Origins MIDI Giutar on iOS for live there’s a brilliant YouTube video that helped me figure it out - thank you Marc
  5. Check the free acoustic IR database, loads to experiment with at no cost http://acousticir.free.fr Great site
  6. Have you tried different USB cable, different USB port on computer If you had it previously installed with drivers does it show in Device Manager in Windows
  7. Brilliant A quick, easy and painless upgrade to my Helix Floor and some great new sounds Love the poly Thanks :)
  8. I use mine as a USB interface to record multiple guitars (inc several strats and PRS’s, Active and passive basses) and it sounds great The main thing is to setup patches that you are happy with for each guitar
  9. Can you try with another power supply (even in a local music store) to eliminate if it’s a problem with the power supply, power lead or connector contacts It could do that if the power is cutting out
  10. In case it’s of use to anyone I’ve been looking for something to cover the unused sockets Helix Floor to give it a bit more protection and make setup easier at gigs (when they start again...) as I’m just guitar in and line outs mostly live with usb for MIDI Guitar on iPad sometimes and USB in studio I found these things on eBay called Jackcaps, they’re blanking cap covers for most socket types, jack, XLR, MIDI that look perfect, just waiting for delivery (I won’t post a link to a seller as there are several and I have no affiliation to any of them) See uploaded photo If they’re as good as they look I’ll also use some for other live gear to make it easier to setup with only the required sockets available to access All I need now is something for the digital ports if anyone’s seen anything Cheers

    Helix Youtube Remote

    Hi @Digital_Igloo Thanks for the Helix presentation yesterday, was a really interesting part of a great day's Open House sessions :) A quick question, you said that the YouTube remote was in Templates at 9A My Helix Floor is at 2.92 and only has Templates 01A - 06A, the rest are all blank, can you tell me where I can get the rest from, particularly the YouTube and iTunes remote control that are on yours in the presentation Keep up the good work, Helix is brilliant, looking forward to 3.0 coming out... Thanks
  13. Well, I'm underwhelmed with the responses I've fixed the issue now so in case anyone else has the same problem, I disabled verifier.exe in Windows 10 so the line 6 drivers can load a startup. Not really a solution but a workaround at least
  14. There are issues with other Line 6 drivers and latest Windows 10 version here, could be related http://line6.com/support/topic/25115-constant-bsod-with-line6-drivers/?p=241920 Hope you find a solution
  15. I'm getting similar problems on a brand new Windows 10 HP Pavillion Desktop with Cubase 9.5 I have a Line 6 SonicPort VX and Pod X3 Live Windows 10 is on latest version When trying to install drivers for either of the Line 6 devices (using the correct install process in the Driver installer exe), Windows bluescreens with Line 6 Driver error messages eg Stop code: DRIVER_VERIFIER_IOMANAGER_VIOLATION What failed: l6SonicPortVX_AvsFilter.sys I then have to disconnect USB for the reboot and reconnect, sometimes it bluescreens again, sometimes I can run Cubase for a while before reboot. This appears to be a Line 6 problem with the latest Creators update to Win 10 my other USB interfaces are fine. Has anyone found any workarounds and can Line 6 comment on this
