  1. I know this doesn't answer your question, but Helix Native for $99 will solve all your problems. Just plug your guitar and mic into the Behringer unit and you're done. That's what I wound up doing.
  2. Why not use snapshots? Snapshots can turn off multiple pedals and such, just set them up to change the pedals you don't have access to in stomp mode?
  3. That's exactly what re-amping is. Prior to the days of digital, if you re-amped, you would play back the DI track back into the amp and record it again.
  4. This is basically like parity of data? Thanks for your contribution to this endeavor.
  5. @silverhead Reading this: He is offering a script that takes a recorded microphone sample of your guitar, along with a recorded sample of your piezo pickup, and creates an IR of the difference. This IR can be placed in your Helix, which would offer the same function as the ToneDexter or Aura, which are $399 and $379 pieces of hardware. You can get this functionality for free with this software and script! What I am also reading is jonfields45 is offering to do this for you for free, but you still need to send him a microphone recorded sample of your guitar, along with the same sample recorded from the under saddle piezo pickup, again in your guitar. He would then send you the IR to load into your Helix to use with your guitar live. This isn't an IR to make an electric sound like an acoustic or for cabs with amps.
  6. @jonfields45 So what I get from this, is you're making an IR based on the difference between the input signal from a UST and the microphone recorded sound, to create the interpolation of what it would sound like in person? Apply the IR to the UST and you get the microphone recorded sound? This would be awesome!

  8. Looks a lot like something I proposed a few months ago, Digital Igloo even said there may not be a market for it. My concept from a few months back:
  9. I wonder how many of these comparisons are being done "live"? Let me explain: Helix Native is a VST based plug-in for a DAW running on a PC/Mac. These are using general compute x86 based CPUs. These CPUs are not designed for DSP processing natively. While running the plug-in live, I predict that helix Native is giving an approximation of what it should sound like after it's rendered. Helix Floor/LT/Stomp/etc... are all running a custom Helix Core OS on an embedded (most likely ARM based) CPU and separate DSP Processors that work in real time. I wonder if you record a track from a Helix hardware unit with both the processed track and the dry track from the Helix, and run Helix Native on the dry track (reamping) and RENDER the file, if you could tell a difference?
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. Guys, this is it, PHOTO EVIDENCE. The internet never lies!
  13. 2.8 is going to drop today. if not, then next week, because L6 doesn't release on Fridays.
  14. Negative, VirtualGuitars was correct
  15. 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!
  16. Wow, that took a strange turn....
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. Is it sitting near a phone or computer? That's usually the culprit for me.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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 :-))
