  1. S***... Then my suspicion regarding the CPU is crap. Perhaps it's some internet issues... Thanks for the info!
  2. It's the 5.40. And yes it's 64bit. Never had any problems with similar VST's.
  3. Ok Thanks for your input. Still waiting for feedback from L6. If you come across a solution or workaround please share. Cheers.
  4. Hi, Are your laptops recent and do they meet the requirements? Already tried with two other vst hosts with no sucess. Starting to think it's some incompatibility between my CPU which is 8 years old, and the Helix Native vst. Submitted a ticket to L6 and waiting for response.
  5. Hi Anyone experiencing constant crashes of Cockos Reaper when trying to load Helix Native? I tried both VST3 and VST2 and always crashes Reaper. Tried disabling windows firewall and defender with no better results.
  6. Hi. Well I guess I didn't explain quite right. I don't send midi CC's from 2 different sources. I usually send tap tempo and patch change commands. Some are sent simultaneously for the tempo of the pod to sync with the tempo in Reaper and for the patch change to happen at beat. But both midi sends came from Reaper using the UM-One. And without the pod acting as audio interface it handles quite well the simultaneous midi CC's. Despite the tempo not always fall in line... That's another problem... Even tough the midi tap tempo sends are on beats in Reaper the Pod tempo is always different and sometimes I have 2 or 3 bpm of difference which causes it to go out of sync just after a few bars... I'll try your suggestion with a different USB cable. Thanks.
  7. I'll give it a try. I'm using the original cable that came with the Pod. It's the only one I have with the ferrite core... And I can't recall if I did that test. I guess not. I suppose it's all ok. Only happens when using both the usb connection and the midi connection, like I said. Also yesterday I did the test using asio4all and it also cause the pod to reboot. Can it be that the pod doesn't handle well 2 midi commands being send to it at precisely the same time? But only when also using it as audio interface?
  8. Hi! I have a small problem with my pod. It reboots itself randomly when connected to the PC via USB. I use the DAW Reaper to send midi commands to the pod like tap tempo and patch changes. I use the Roland UM-One Mk2 for this. Doing this with the USB connected from the pod and using it as audio interface makes it reboot randomly. Using just the midi connection doesn't. Using just the Pod as audio interface no problems. Only happens when the two are connected, only in Reaper and only when playing a project. It reboots in various projects and sometimes it's happens a few minutes after I start playing and sometimes just doesn't happen or takes quite a while to happen. Also when it reboots itself Windows also crashes because it loses the soundcard it's using and it doesn't like that... Drivers and firmware are up to date. Using the Pod asio drivers. Using Windows 10 but also happened with Windows 7. Any ideias and workarounds? Thanks
  9. Hi all! I've been using the Boss FV500-H for a few months. It's not perfect but I like it. Using a TRS cable you get the proper sweep. Using a standard cable the polarity inverts. I use it with the polarity inverted and changed all my patches swapping the min and max values for the parameters I use I use in the POD. I decided to go this way because I didn't like the behaviour with the normal polarity. It had no dead zone at the heel position and a huge dead zone at the toe position. Inverted I get a small dead zone in heel and no dead zone at toe. This can be controlled using the side knob in the pedal. The sweep sounds linear to me. Not sure if it is. And its a great pedal. Built to last. It was kind of noisy when rocking it but I manage to put some small cushions in the heel so now it doesn't make any noise and at the same time I reduced the initial dead zone. If you what a good alternative, this can be it but give it a try before if you can. You may not like it. Like I said it's not perfect. Cheers
  10. Well. Can't help you with the looper function of the pod. Don't use it. However I've already spent a lot of time searching for this and I do recall people with that exact problem. But can't say if there's a workaround. Or if my method works with the looper. What I know is the pod does receive the tempo of the DAW, with a bit of fluctuation, not the exact tempo. But if you have changes in tempo during a song, the pod doesn't keep up unless you press a footswitch. It's strange and unusable for me. So the best method for me is to send CC messages to the pod with the tempo. If you think my method could help you out I can give you some more hints with that.
  11. You're welcome. As i understand it, at least in the pod, the time based effects reset the tempo when you press the tap tempo so each time i send a CC midi message with tap tempo to the pod the tempo of the effect resets. The problem is you cannot send too many beats or else the effect creates strange sounds. Not noticible in delays but very noticible in phasers or flangers. I only send the minimum beats for the pod to calculate the tempo. Usually 3 beats is sufficient. Its not the exact tempo but if you have many preset changes or tempo changes it's not noticible. I also send CC messages when I change presets manually for the tempo to align correctly because you may not change the preset with your foot in the exact beat. This way it's always synced.
  12. Hi. Didn't solve the problem and found no feedback from support or forums. I have a workaround that works pretty well. Requires a bit a work. Created a tempo track for sending tap tempo through CC midi messages to the pod and created midi for every tempo change and every patch change with just 3 or 4 beats. Works great. Just be careful with patches with phaser or similar effects because every tap tempo you send resets the effect and creates strange sounds. And turn off the tempo sync from the options. Cheers.
  13. Hi! Did you found a workaround for your tempo sync problem? I just posted a very similar post reporting the same problem. Cheers
  14. Hi, I'm trying to sync the tempo in the POD by sending the clock from my DAW (Reaper) via midi. I have two problems. 1.The POD only syncs the tempo when I go to the midi page in the system settings or when I press a footswitch. 2.The synchronized tempo always drifts by -/+0.2bpm and takes a bit of time to sync. I tried with both global and preset options for the tempo. Is there some workaround for these problems? What I'm trying to do is to play backing tracks with tempo changes during the playback and I would like the tempo in the POD to sync with the DAW without me having to press footswitches and without any drifting. Any advice or setting i'm missing in the DAW or in the POD? Thank you
