  1. Exactly what I was looking for, I’m attempting the to match the Tech 2112. Downloading both your tones soon and will reply with my results. Thanks!
  2. Working great with mine.. maybe I’m not up to date on OS?
  3. There has been discussion on that subject here and there, not sure if L6 will be doing that though? I feel they should label the product more accurately.. something like “Helix Plug In for DAWs” lol. Having watched several HN YouTube videos it really isn’t clear that the product is a plug in - most screen shots make it look like an app? However, after a few days of using it inside Logic Pro I can tell you it’s pretty much a game changer for tones and recording functionality - acoustic guitar IR tones (HN with Logic Pro EQs) are, for me, some of the best acoustic tones I’ve dialed in to date. Also, I’ve found, it’s best to just build new presets for HN. The ones off my floor unit were ok in HN but not great. Makes sense since my floor unit presets are set up for FOH mono, whereas I am building stereo tones in my DAW.
  4. That is a really good idea. I just installed HN today and have to run the buffer at 128 minimum and it still has a faint lag… mostly in the feel of playing. Still annoying. Tones are really good though. Looking for all ideas.. thanks?
  5. Going on 6 years with the Helix Floor and if it died tomorrow, I’d probably get the Stomp and streamline my presets accordingly. My son has the Stomp, I helped him set it up and have used it a few times, love it.
  6. I'm going to go out on a limb and say it won't happen before July 2021..
  7. That’s clever, did not know that! Thanks
  8. Looks like you can get it right now for $99.. Memorial Day (lingering) sale?

    Big Sur

    I get it. I’ve been 100% Mac OS and iOS for a long time and have been a Helix owner since their first machines (2015/16?) and this is the first long term OS incompatibility issue that I’ve seen. Also, Line 6 was not the only company in the same boat. Hopefully it was just a one off and due to the magnitude of Big Sur?
  10. Where did you buy it? If it was Sweetwater, and you've had it less than 30 days, tell them you want to return it. Your Line 6 support scenario doesn't sound typical to me?

    To my ears, especially in the mix, I can easily miss the mark on perfect tone. So as a Helix owner/tweaker for almost 5 years I can't tell much difference in the Helix and tube/analog gear (have sold off most of my amps and analog pedals as a result). I'd be interested in seeing if you or anyone here can get (guess) Jason's setup correctly: Jason's tone test.. If anyone takes the test please paste your response here before the deadline. Thanks..
  12. Created a Sound Cloud account, hopefully you can listen to these short files: Acoustic Natural Acoustic Strumming Acoustic Ambient
  13. Try sweeping a high Q (narrow) reduction between 750-850 hz.. I set the parametric EQ as my first fx block to get the best sound possible from my dry line in tone (guitar and pickup only), then I switch on the IRs. I prefer 2 IRs in parallel, one with more bass and one with more mid/highs), then I use the IR block level settings to mix the tone. I add the wet stuff last. Works for me.
  14. I would like to share some of my acoustic preset samples but even the short wav files are a few MBs and too large to post here..
  15. Did you intend for this post to go somewhere else? I'm only asking because it has zero to do with this thread.
  16. Gerry, I trimmed the preset to load up on HX Stomp (ver 3.0 or higher) and it's up on CustomTone: https://line6.com/customtone/tone/5257476/ CustomTone comments: IR used is 3 Sigma Mart 45 Soundhole 1b. Guitar is a Martin D18 with a K&K Pure Mini pickup. Typically tuned to Eb w/light gauge bronze strings using a medium pick. Preset contains 3 snapshots EQ'd differently using the new Acoustic Sim on side chain. Only 7 fx blocks, HX Stomp compatible. Requires HX 3.0 or higher.
  17. Thanks, I didn't know that. This means my son and I can swap presets, awesome! However, my preset in this discussion is using both paths.
  18. Hey Gerry, as is typical, my main acoustic preset has morphed into something different than what i described above, which I now prefer. It still requires 3 Sigma IRs. Also I have had a chance to piddle around with an HX Stomp (my son bought one) and I know for a fact you can't use a Helix Floor preset in your HX as it doesn't have the dual DSP paths. However, I will be glad to send.
  19. Firmware 3.01 update went smooth..to include restore from backup.
  20. I can image there are a lot of HX owners who don't search forums for advice or even update their units, my oldest son being one of them. So yea, I'd guess this is a small sample of owners. He's visiting in Dec and I told him to bring his HX and we'll update it to 3.0..lol
  21. Ah, ok.. but someone is paying invisioncommunity for the service?
  22. Yea, lots of anomalies. Doesn’t seem to have a pattern. This is the second time it’s taken me right to this thread without having to log in. Both times using the provided email link notifying me someone commented on the thread. I assume L6 is not interested in fixing the issue?
  23. OK, thanks for the confirmation. I don't come here as often as I used to, but don't recall this being such a nagging issue before. Funny though, I didn't have to log in this time, haha..
  24. I'm having to sign into my account every time I visit this forum lately - phone, tablet, or computer - it doesn't matter. Maybe it's just on my end but is anyone else experiencing this?
