    Helix Firmware 2.80

    I mean, this just screams of "You should be tolerant of others. Now that I know you're intolerant of other people's feelings, I'm going to be intolerant towards you!" Where have I seen this kind of behavior before?

    Helix Firmware 2.80

    Wow, sarcasm isn't part of your repertoire? It's obviously a joke, a poorly done photo edit that is clearly not intended to mislead. If it makes you feel better, I'll say sorry but not mean it. "Sorry" Edit: Just to be clear, I'm not a malicious troll, I'm just having fun with this as it helps pass the wait for the update. I'm a serious user and can't wait to try out the Revv model coming with the update.

    2.8 is going to drop today. if not, then next week, because L6 doesn't release on Fridays.

    How many people would like to see a medium size Helix?

    I was just throwing ideas out there, I'm already a happy owner of an LT with the backpack deal that happened back in March. I love it! Good to see feedback from higher ups in any company. Keep up the good fight D.I. I appreciate your time!

    Wow, that took a strange turn....

    How many people would like to see a medium size Helix?

    LOL, yeah, that was my quick and dirty MSPaint hackjob. It was more for the concept. I could see moving some IO to the sides, maybe keep most of the functionality. I would even suggest just having 1 mono loop would suffice. If people want more loops, pay more for LT? What do you think it would take to hodge-podge something between HX Stomp and Helix LT to get to the $825 price point?

    Would something like this be possible? Maybe get rid of fx loops and knock down L/R 1/4" outputs down to a stereo TRS with a splitter (included in box)? I think a $800-850 price point would put it in between the Stomp and LT

    Does anyone get static in their clean tones?

    Is it sitting near a phone or computer? That's usually the culprit for me.

    XLR Port

    Agreed. I notice on all pictures and even on my LT that the metal tab is only on the right side XLR Out. This is most likely a contact point to ground (middle pin on XLR) to enable the separation of L/R channels when R Channel is plugged in. The 1/4" out has this internally, probably using a stereo TRS jack.

    Stumped by usb

    Need to select your audio device as the Helix. In Windows, click on the speaker in the system tray, there should be an arrow to allow you to select the device. On Mac, sorry. I mean I can't help you

    How many blocks does the Helix LT have?

    While this is true, let's expand on it a little. Both Helix Floor and Helix LT can do the same amount of blocks(32), but both are limited by DSP. Each block will use a different amount of DSP depending on what it is. Here is a list of DSP usage per model: http://benvesco.com/store/helix-dsp-allocations/ Helix does have dual DSP paths, so you can go up to 200%, but can only go to 100% per path.

    Future Helix 2

    Sorry, older thread now, but another thing to consider is that the current hardware isn't really all that limited. Look at how much DSP is available, and who uses 100% of the DSP all the time? I know some people do, and that's great! I think that the current hardware has the capability to last another 5 years. The reason Line 6 keeps updating the software (for free!!) is because not only does it keep us current owners happy, but it offers value to those who haven't purchased yet. Who wants to buy something that isn't supported anymore? Updating the software and offering new features isn't free, but costs much less than hardware development, prototyping, and assembly line changeover costs. This helps Line 6 sell more of their current hardware, at profit, and gives us goodies! 2.8 Update HURRY UP!! (had to throw it in, sorry :-))
