  1. Hey guys! I'm running my HXFX in 4cm, and it's been great with just my speaker cabinet. I'd also like to use its IR capabilities to send a 2nd output to the PA. I'm struggling with getting this setup, if it's even possible. Any help would be appreciated!
  2. Hi everyone, I still struggle with the concept of buffered vs non-buffered. Has anyone run their unit with any of the available echoplex preamp type pedals (Chasetone Secret Preamp, Clinch EP-Pre, Dunlop EP101)? I'm trying to determine the best way to integrate an echoplex preamp pedal into my HX Effects 4cm setup. Any help or information would be appreciated.
  3. I've had my HX Effects for a few years now. Last night at rehearsal, it started acting up. I use it in 4CM with my Marshall DSL40c. A few times, it would bypass the preamp, and just play loud clean sound from the power section. Switching presets wouldn't fix it. I'd have to restart the HX Effects to get it back to normal. Has anyone ever had this issue?
  4. I've been powering my HX with the 1spot wall wart. I got a Friedman Smallbox pedal yesterday. Powering it with a separate wall wart, I'm getting a ton of hum noise. Both in the HX Effects loop or in front of it. Before I spend money on an ISO box, I'm wondering if anyone else has had noise issues with the Smallbox pedal?
  5. Hi everyone, I've had a few intermittent issues where my band rehearses, and I'm wondering if it's a power issue? A few times my expression pedal would stop working. After restarting the unit, it worked fine. Also, when using the unit to channel switch my DSL40c, it would suddenly stop changing the channels, even though the red/green indicator light on the amp would change. I haven't had this issue at other places, but I also use my rig mostly at this rehearsal space. I've read some things that mention odd issues when the HX Effects doesn't have clean power. Just wondering if that could be the cause?
  6. So, a couple concerning things happened with my HX Effects during rehearsal last night. A few times, the screens would start flipping back and forth between my patches and the tempo screen. And also, at one point, my expression pedal stopped responding. Both things went away by restarting my HX Effects. Has anyone else experienced these issues?
  7. I'm wondering as well how it would connect to the hx effects, if there is toe switch functionality in the future. I'm already using one of the ext jacks to channel switch my amp.
  8. Is anyone successfully using this with an HX Effects? I'm trying to decide if I should get the SP1, or just get the non-switching version to control the HX Effects wah function.
  9. Here's how I finally got it to work. "Create three patches to switch the amp channel. Patch one, I set the channel to 1 and the pc command to 1. Put the amp in learning mode as per instructions, send the signal from the HX Effects, select the clean (green) channel on the amp, save the patch. Patch two, set the channel to 1 and the pc command to 2. put the amp in learning mode and select channel two (blue), save the patch. You can figure out how to program the red channel #3. At the end, take the amp out of learning mode."
  10. Hi guys, I've been using my HXFX in 4cm to my Runt 20 with no issues. Tonight, I decided to give the ext amp a try to change channels on the Runt. As soon as I plugged the cable from the HXFX ext amp jack to the Runt's footswitch jack, I started getting a hum. I'm assuming it's a ground loop? I tried switching the ground switch on the Runt, but still hums. This works perfectly fine on my DSL and 5153. Any ideas how to resolve it with the Runt?
  11. Hi everyone, I'm trying to get a close approximation of EVH's Balance era tone with my HX Effects. I have to my basic amp tone set, now I just need the harmonizer effect (Eventide Harmonizer with the -9/+9 cents left and right with probably 10 msec delay and 12 msec delay). I realize I won't get the W/D/W stereo effect, but I'm just wondering what effect(s) I could use on my HX Effects to get close.
  12. I'm really trying to love my Helix, but something is just missing in my sound. I'm coming from a 50 watt EVH 5153 into a 212 cab. Also a DSL40. The main tone is usually always go for is a Van Halen type of hard rock tone. Nothing super heavy. Last night I was using the Brit Plexi Bright with the gain dimed, into the Cali v30 412, a 160 mic, some early reflections (15%), low cut at 85, high cut at 10K. I'm running into a Laney LFR-112. I simply did not have the feel or the balls that I'm used to hearing. Is there something that I should change up with my settings? Any help would be appreciated.
  13. OH wow! Thank you! I don't know how I missed that.
  14. Hi guys, I just got a Laney LFR-112 and I'm going to have band rehearsal with it later this week. My question is, what level should I be sending to it from the Helix? Line or instrument? I've searched, but I've been unable to find any answer. Thanks!
  15. I've read that he used a cab with Peavey Scorpion speakers.
  16. Hi all, Does anyone have any recommendations for Nuno's killer tone on the Pornograffitti album? He used an ADA MP1 into a Macintosh power amp, then into a BBE Sonic Maximizer.
  17. Does anyone know of any deals for Powercab?
  18. I have 112, 212, and 412 guitar cabs. What I don't have is a power amp. But, I'm trying to slim down my gigging/rehearsal rig down to simply the Helix and speakers of some type. All that being said, I'll never fully part with my amps and cabs.
  19. It's out. I think I'm going to return it and get a Powercab. I didn't want to ha e to justify the cost of a Powercab. I'm still having a hard time justifying $600-$800 for a 112 cab. But it's essentially what I want for the Helix.
  20. I'm wondering if I should have gone with the "cab" options I was researching (Powercab or Laney LFR)? Or perhaps one of the other options (QSC or Yamaha)?
  21. Thanks guys! I have it standing vertical on the floor. Most of the presets already have a cab cut at 80Hz. I'll give your tips a try.
  22. Received a Headrush FRFR-108 today. This is my first FRFR, after researching a bunch. Wow it's very bassy! I've gone through all the factory patches, just to make sure it wasn't any particular patches. Every one is very bassy. Does this mean I have to dial back the bass on every preset? Or could there be something else that I'm missing?
  23. No, I mean that I set the output level to -10dB or whatever level when the Helix amp is on, and set the level to 0 when the FX Loop block is on and the Helix amp is off. Then I save the patch. Then when I switch back and forth with the footswitch, the levels don't always change back and forth.
  24. OK, I've tried this. Again, thanks for your help. I had to set the output block alot lower than - 5dB. What's weird is that sometimes when switching back and forth with the footswitch, the output block level doesn't change correctly. And other times, it does. I guess when you use this method, you have to adjust the output block level whenever you turn the actual amp volume up or down, since the volume of the Helix amps isn't affected by the actual amp's volume controls?
  25. I've considered a power amp into a guitar cab. I have my tube amps and cabs that I can use any time. I was specifically asking for opinions on FRFR choices.
