    HX Stomp Buzzing Loudly only when USB connected

    USB earth hum. It exists. It goes away when plugged into a laptop running on battery power. It sounds REAL bad with my Stomp through my Fender amp, though I just ignore it for the most part

    Naming Stomp Snapshots

    It wouldn't be as half as bad if we could assign colors to the switches..

    Fizziness in Helix

    Jason's method is why the high and low shelf eq was added. Try that.

    Helix Bug Reports

    Helix Floor 2.81 Snapshot assignments arent saving properly. Parameters reset themselves and random blocks will be turned on when they shouldn't be. This was a preset copied from another preset that wasn't a part of a backup. Recreating the preset worked out

    seeking great strat rock sound

    Try the Line 6 Litigator. It's a heavily modded blackface. I love how the saturation changes with the bias control

    Best Power Amp for Helix

    I was gifted a Fender Frontman 65r, solid state powered, open back cab with a stock FMIC speaker and effects loop with TONS of clean headroom (110db before I decided I had enough). I eventually swapped out the speaker for a Creamback and have been using that for my cover band where the PA is vocals-only and the open back cab fills the room better than my K8.2.

    Helix Bug Reports

    Bug in HX Stomp (happens in 2.71 and 2.80) When tapping tempo via midi (Disaster Area DMC.micro) my FS3 turns red while in Snapshot mode and Stomp mode. This doesn't happen all the time and switching modes or pressing the switch makes it go back.

    Send MIDI thru Mac to Helix via USB controller??

    It's very cool, and I appreciate it, @rd2rk X100000 MidiPipe works like a charm. Midirouter didn't like me for some reason.

    Send MIDI thru Mac to Helix via USB controller??

    @rd2rk thank you so much. midi router looks like exactly what I want. It makes sense that the missing puzzle piece is some software. There is midi routing within Mac but it's quite confusing and isn't working for me. I do Studio work out of my home with clients, in my helix is on a shelf away from my desk and I'd like to be able to activate foot switches from my APK, which allows you to switch between "Presets" (Programs) and toggle over to a whole new set of midi commands for different purposes, and have one set up for my DAW, and would like to set one up for my Helix. I will in no way, shape, or form be doing anything like this at a gig. I'm going to go download it asap

    Using a Windows 10 tablet to run HX Edit

    Yep. I use a Surface Pro that was given to me. Works like a charm once you get the fingers accustomed to how Edit works with a touchscreen

    Using FRFR Behind You On Stage

    I have a QSC K8.2 so it can fit anywhere -- small pole, or on top of the bass amp
  12. I've been racking my brain over this for a while. Granted, I'm pretty much a MIDIot, although having finally taken a class on MIDI last Spring (mainly covered electronic music development, sadly) I just can't seem to figure this out: I have a Helix Floor connected to my Mac via USB I have an Akai MPK Mini connected to my Mac via USB How can I get the MPK to bypass a footswitch or change a parameter on my Helix? Thanks in Advance

    Do you like the stock cabs

    I've got a large collection of impulses that I'll pull a few from, tweak and mix into one single file for a good half hour, import into Helix. Then for kicks I'll try to tone match with a separate amp/cab block and nail it within minutes.
