  1. They added the capability to access Workbench through Helix a few updates ago. VDI cable and Helix and you are good to go.
  2. I thought I read that the octave control was producing an octave below rather than an octave above. Looks like its working as it should. Thanks for clearing this up.
  3. The octave knob just seems to add more fuzz to the guitar sound. Isn't this supposed to add an octave down to the guitar signal? Also, the filter knob does nothing. I think these are bugs.
  4. When I was gigging, I would boost the level slider on the output block. Usually, I would boost 3-5 dBs. Using the Master slider on the amp block will add distortion and may not add much to the overall level. If I'm playing high gain stuff, I also turn the gain down when I am boosting the overall output.
  5. Amp was dropped off at an authorized repair center last week. Repair tech called me to tell me it is finished. The new power tubes have been biased correctly. He told me the amp was biased very high at around 43mv when he got it. After replacing the power tubes, the bias is now at 32.2 mv. Also, one of the preamp tubes was not working right so that was also replaced. I will pick up the amp on Thursday and am confident it will sound great.
  6. If you still have your amp, you can get a tranny here. Mercury Magnetics Transformers
  7. Thanks. I think I will order a matched quad set of powertubes so I only have to get it biased once. Again, though, I am not talking about noise. It's treble freqs in the guitar sound.
  8. To clarify... I am not talking about noise. I am taking about excessive high end (fizz) in the guitar signal. My original post gives details. This amp is not particularly noisy. To answer your questions: I am using a Line 6 Link cable. I just bought the amp. The previous owner says he never changed the tubes. The preamp tubes are EH with "made in russia" stamped on them. I cannot see the power tubes through the cage well enough to see a brand, but there appears to be a green stamp of some sort on them. As far as topology, the TIGHT (1) setting seems to be an improvement over the other three, which all have excessive treble. Class a and ab, and pentode/triode all have the issue.
  9. I just bought a DT50 112. I am noticing some serious fizz when using the amp with Helix (I am using L6 Link). Right now, I have the PV Panama preamp running into the DT.... fizz city. I would have thought a guitar speaker would remove most of the unwanted high end, but it doesn't. If I place a Hi/Low cut EQ block and set the Hi cut to even as high as 15k, it still makes a big difference in eliminating the fizz. That's a pretty high setting, so there is a lot of very high frequency information coming from the amp. Similar issue with most of the preamps and even full amp models I have tried. At first, I thought the stock L6/Celestion speaker was the issue, but if I use the built-in DT preamps, there is no fizz... the amp sounds as expected. I don't mind including a high cut in my Helix chain, but this doesn't seem like normal operation for a combo amp with a guitar speaker. Anyone else notice this? I tried a Google search, but I am not coming up with much.
  10. try lowering the pickups.
  11. Les Paul Standard has a mahogany body with a maple cap. The Special is just mahogany.
  12. You shouldn't have to register any IRs.
