  1. Line 6 also has their Marketplace at https://shop.line6.com/marketplace/ but also search on YouTube and you'll find lots.

    Computer Needs?

    You don't need Native or any other interface to use Helix or to record. Helix is an interface. It's fine to use it with an interface if you prefer but you won't be able to do things like record the dry input signal for re-amping.
  3. Hey Glenn, thanks for the shout out! <hat tip>

    Stop the hair!

    Hopefully you can see the attached image. The blue line is the "not hairy" mix while the red is the "hairy" mix. Do you happen to notice the "not hairy" mix has a huge peak at about 80-90hz then a steep roll off and basically nothing above 1k? That's why it sounds like there's a blanket over it. The "hairy" mix is similar, from 1k on down, but from 1k-5k it has a gigantic boost. Neither mix are a balanced frequency response by any means, but you may get "hairy" mix closer to the "not hairy" mix just by putting a lowpass filter at about 750hz.

    I haven't heard of crystal delay and a google search does not readily show any pedals named that. Can you explain more?
  6. I understand the "don't know what songs until just before service" aspect of things! What I have done in this situation is have a setlist where all my song specific patches are in alphabetical order, but starting on bank 5. Then when I got the list, I could quickly scroll through to song 1, and copy to 1A, then scroll to song 2 and copy to 1B, etc. Then I'd have the 4-6 songs in order from 1A to 2B or whatever. Once you get this "trick" down, you can do a whole service's setlist in just 2-3 minutes of time.
  7. There's no way to go from bank 1 to bank 12 other than clicking bank up eleven times. It's probably worth rearranging your set list to get your sounds closer together if that's possible for your use case. The editor on computer can help to re-order things quickly but you can also do it on the preset screen with one of the small knobs under the screen.
  8. Yes, use Simple Pitch and set it to 100% mix. Do not assign any parameters to the snapshot controller.
  9. You would want the simple pitch block very first in the chain and set to 100% mix. Beware, results may vary.
  10. I have tried it. It gives me an identical sound at a different volume. I'm wondering if you accidentally have a mix param assigned to EXP or something.
  11. If you want an overall up/down with no tonal changes, put it at the very end. Any perceived change in "sound" is psychoacoustic. If you recorded it with volume at all different sweep positions and put it up on a scope, it would be the same for every volume level.
  12. I keep the pad OFF at all times. I have tons of guitars and each sounds different. I like them that way.
  13. Sounds to me like it's probably the "ghost notes" or intermodulation distortion or whatever you want to call it (caused by the power amp's sag and exhibited by real amps as well). Vox-style amps (like the Matchless) are very prone to this sort of artifact.
  14. Yes, absolutely. You can have your guitar presets set to 1/4" and your other presets on XLR! They will switch at the press of a button.
  15. A patch and a preset are the same thing. 01A on your Helix is a patch/preset. 01B is a different patch/preset. Etc.
