  1. I fixed all my Firehawk issues with one simple update.....bought a Headrush. Don't get me wrong, I really like my Firehawk, but it seems like the patches weren't very "professional". Not that I'm good enough to sound like a professional, but the sound that comes from the Headrush is more grown-up, so-to-speak. Google Choptones.

    cases ? I have a separate volume pedal and wireless rx'r Velcro'd down. Takes me a hot minute to get setup for shows.
  3. can you go back to 1.20? Could be a hardware issue, but if it started with the noise after the 1.30 upgrade, I'd say it's the update. Maybe go back, hopefully the noise goes away, then try to update via USB again.
  4. My Bugera Trirec works fine on 4cm, just seems to have more noise than I would like using the preamp section. Very little noise with the guitar plugged directly into the amp. Just thought that maybe the input level to the JSX or Bugera might be real low, so the preamp tubes aren't saturating, creating distortion. A "how-to" on proper 4cm level setup would be nice.
  5. I don't think I'll buy another Line 6 product, especially not the Helix for way too much. I like the sound I get, but changing presets is still too slow. The 1.30 helped some, but not enough. My band mates HD500 changes sounds almost instantly. I feel like the Firehawk was the cash cow for Helix. I know you can't please everybody, but showing some effort to correct some of these issues would be nice. I'm considering a Headrush.
  6. Hi, I'm asking for a little advice. I was on a mission to change my tubes, and maybe I still need to, because I wasn't getting the drive and crunch I'm after. I have a Bugera Trirec, used, so the tubes could be 6 years old. If I plug my guitar in the guitar in on the amp and crank it, it sounds great. If I use the 4 cable method, without amp and cab, without stomps, it doesn't seem to have the punch. I setup a test with a dB meter and played some chords with just the guitar in at 100dB, sounded great. Did the same thing with the FH and I was only at 82dB, so I started tweaking. I couldn't seem to get the same sound and volume without getting tons of noise and hiss, sometimes with feedback. I didn't adjust the amp at all, just the FX Loop, guitar in, the "no Amp", and master out. The FX Loop outputs are on stomp and the FH output is on AMP. If I change to LINE on the output, of course it cranks. There are levels on the FX Loop, I've adjusted them up, makes bad noises, not too good, +5dB seems OK. I think I can lower the master output and use the LINE output setting, but that doesn't seem right. Anyone else? Thanks, Jason
  7. is there a list of fixes? only a firmware file in the download. I have all my presets backed up, but will it wipe them out? I don't really care to update and re-patch everything if it's not worth it.
  8. Thanks. They are about $100US here at Best Buy and Walmart. Have you tried the app on it? Sometimes my singer helps me by adjusting my sound as I play. A little bigger screen would be nice.
  9. I do as Kinglerxt with my Fender Mustang 3 with the output at around 30%. If I go too high on the output (input to the amp in amp mode), I will get a bit of fludder in the driver. I can still turn up the amp to a ear bleeding level, but I think the input to the amp is too high. My Peavey ValveKing will take the 75% input and drive like no tomorrow. Punchy and aggressive with the 2x12 Carvin drivers. It sound amazing for a cheap tube amp. I run it on the clean channel with amp modeling and no cab sim. I don't like the dirty channel so much on the Peavey, so I sim a Plexi or AC30 or something.
  10. Like most, I've been just using my Android phone to adjust tones and mess around, but I would like a little bigger display. I would like to buy a real cheap, < $100 Android tablet that works nicely with my FH. any suggestions? Thanks!
  11. That's odd. I just downloaded it from the cloud with the app. I did just search bj. Came up with 2 BJ Clean 1's and the aOrange. I just reposted it under a slightly different name, BJ Clean 1 - Repost. Hope this helps. I checked to see if it came up in the search at 8:07PM CST, and it was not there yet. I don't know if it was flagged by Line6 or it takes a while to refresh the tone listings. cheers.
  12. I was just about to post on that also. It's real annoying. Not like this is an app to log onto your bank account or anything :)
  13. maybe the cord? I have 2 active Schecters, an active Ibanez bass, passive Ibanez guitar and they all work just fine. Make sure it's an instrument cord and not a stereo cord. I was just thinking a grounding issue or something. Lots of people have active pickups.
  14. just an update.....I stopped using my iPad, the load errors went away. Been about a week now. Maybe a coincidence.
