  1. Also, the override on the guitar doesn't work for me. every time i go into override mode, it always plays the default after the blinking has stopped exiting the alternate tuning mode.
  2. I would also like to second this. It is really frustrating me. I want Drop D as a global setting or manage them in another way. I can also change this on my helix but again, its not a global setting thats easily managable...

    patch failed helix not booting...

    i wasn't sure what people said when they would say 'manual update' i always just used the firmware updater. i did go down to 1.x firmware but it was still broken at that point, so i'm not sure if that helped throughout the whole process.... i really do think it was like a USB conflict or maybe a power issue with not enough power getting through the usb... not sure... you may also want to try a different usb port if youre using usb 3.0 slots vs. usb 2.0 slots...

    patch failed helix not booting...

    hey everyone i resolved my issue, i believe it was like mentioned - issues with USB ports - however, for me *i believe* what fixed it was unplugging all other USB devices, including my mouse. I then installed the first firmware, then updated to the latest without any issue. sounds like the helix has conflict issues with ports.

    patch failed helix not booting...

    thanks for the tips guys but still no dice :( when the line 6 updater starts to 'install firmware' (any #) the screen just goes black on the helix and nothing happens... i know before it at least use to say it was updating the firmware... anymore advice? anyone from line 6??

    patch failed helix not booting...

    heya i just updated to the latest firmware, followed the steps exactly but when the line 6 updater said the patching was complete i noticed my helix said that the patch process failed and to try again for some reason. when i booted up my helix i get this on the screen... i thought it might be the reset presets thing mentioned but i held the 2 buttons down with powering on for 5 minutes and nothing ever happened... help would be greatly appreciated! thanks note: ive tried repatching and even tried going to a previous firmware and it still does the same thing

    download firmware?

    i know this seems like a silly question but i cannot find where to download the firmware update? i've installed the latest helix sofware and it doesn't look like the line 6 monkey has helix support yet...
  10. Its the cable to the guitar and the cable to the computer, you can see a picture of it here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6azwIVIBAArbVRjdFBXMnhwNmc/view
  11. hey everyone im clearing out my studio because i'm moving to russia in 3 weeks and i need to get rid of a ton of stuff. i have an extra workbench cable for interfacing the variax with your pc. when i bought a variax i didn't know it came with one so i bought an extra, but for some reason the place i bought it from considers it software even though the software is free to download and theres nothing related to making it unique outside of registration... so i have an extra! So i'm either going to throw it away or give it to someone. All you need to do is pay for shipping, which is $20 because i have to buy a box for shipping it in as well. USA only, i could ship it overseas but i'm not sure how much that shipping would cost. please let me know if you're interested... https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6azwIVIBAArbVRjdFBXMnhwNmc/view?usp=sharing I hope the moderators don't consider this 'selling' something on the forums, because i'm giving it away free. You are of course, more than welcome to pick it up from me if you're in the Denver area :P

    Helix as generic foot pedal?

    I don't see what's wrong with wanting to have a foot pedal use both systems so you don't have to have large foot switches in your play space. I'm not trying to combine them anymore than the foot switches can work for both, not screen or anything else like that.

    Helix as generic foot pedal?

    Hey guys I'm not sure if this answered in the faq forum because I might not know the technical term. I just got my helix today and I'm trying to figure out my setup. I also have an axe fx 2 and I was wondering if I could use the helix as the foot switch when I want to use the axe fx, I'm sure all the fancy features wouldn't work and I'd only be able to use one or the other if it did work but just curious if anyone has any insight here :) Thx
  14. Are there any more pickup models coming from Line6 for the Variax series? I really liked the workbench HD and it was able to get me something closer to what i'm used to. I primarily play death metal and i'm used to EMG/Seymour Duncan pickups. None of the pickups/guitar modeling comes close to the sounds except for the jazz and the pickups that come on the guitar (non-modeled pickups). I'm using an 89f... I have made it work with enough distortion, but i never have any need to use any of the pickup/guitar models. I primarily use it for the tuning switching... but i'd love to explore it some more....
  15. damn, yeah i'll get it setup maybe its just an issue there... i hope :/ cuz right now it's amazing for *everything* except tapping for me... that or i just suck at tapping and i don't realize it :P
