  1. Thanks DI and thanks for all the work and communication! I'm sure people will complain from the get go about the editor for one reason or another so while it is still calm....great work on continually updating Helix and for keeping us informed!
  2. saw on TGP that the Helix editor in Beta came out a few mins ago! http://line6.com/software/ Helix Application v1.10 Public Beta Release Notes Helix Application 1.10 is a public beta that includes new features, fixes, stability improvements, and optimizations. IMPORTANT! READ BEFORE INSTALLING ANY NEW SOFTWARE! Shut down all Line 6 software as well as any software that streams audio, including, but not limited to: iTunes, Spotify, DAWs, etc. Use your CURRENT EXISTING Helix application to back up all of your presets and IRs. If you're running Helix FW 1.06 or 1.06.5, your current Helix application version should be 1.04. Quit the CURRENT EXISTING Helix application and download and install the NEW Helix application (1.10.0), available here: http://line6.com/software/ This also installs the newest version of Line 6 Updater (1.08). If you're using Helix Rack with Helix Control, turn off Helix Control. Using the new Line 6 Updater (1.08), update Helix (or Helix Rack) to the newest firmware (1.10.0). If you're using Helix Rack with Helix Control, after Helix Rack has been updated, connect and power on Helix Control, and it will update automatically. Reset Helix's global settings by holding footswitches 5 and 6 (top row) while booting. For Helix Rack, press and hold knobs 2 and 3 under the big LCD while booting. Using the new Helix application (1.10.0), restore all user presets and IRs. New Features New Edit View—Click a block and its parameters appear as sliders. Click and drag a block to reorder it.

  3. Nice! I guess that's next to do on my DIY list Great job!
  4. I've got a Korg A1 and didn't really notice it until I read this. Pretty sure that's where the similarity ends! The A1 still sounds good though, especially given how old it is. I got it in 93 or so because I read that Lynch used one for Dokken. Btw the stock presets were horrible! Lol.
  5. It dawned on me last night that since the latest FW update I'm hardly noticing the dreaded "crossover" distortion (or whatever it is/was). I use to notice it really bad on the Cali and the Panama. I'm going to run through things again when I get home today.
  6. Well, the update when as smooth as all the last, don't know how I've gotten lucky with smooth updates when so many are struggling with them. I backed up all my presets and IR's as recommended but when I reloaded everything my delays were missing from my presets (4CM for use with my amp). My modeling presets weren't affected just my 4CM presets. I didn't try reloading them into Helix again, but will tonight when I get home. Anyone else experience anything like this? Thanks and have an interesting day!!!
  7. Hey Scott, I really enjoyed your G-system channel when I had my G, then I followed your Kemper vids for a bit, but I'm stoked to see you on the Helix. Do you still have the Kemper? What are your thoughts in comparison? Thanks and rock on!
  8. Bogner XTC!!!! Ppppllleeeeaaassseee!
  9. Hey DI, please don't take my question as me being pissed. You guys do an amazing job of interacting with us impatient people! I'm freaking stoked!! Too bad its not out today as my office closed for weather and would be a great day to mess with the new toys!! If you need a final tester send it over I've got nothing better to do today!!! :P
  10. Oh, don't misunderstand me. I'm not faulting them necessarily, I'm sure they've been crazy busy. Just thought they should announce here first as this is their forum. I'm just excited to keep expanding my Helix.
  11. I agree with the question of why it's not being mentioned in here by L6. DI or Phil???? Shouldn't those announcements be made here as well if not first?
  12. Post from DI on TGP Helix FW 1.06 will be at NAMM. If for whatever reason it's not ready for public download by Thursday, you'll see it early next week. Love the dedication that L6 has with Helix. Even if it doesn't have every fix that we as users demand are in it the fact that they keep on pushing updates is encouraging for future development!
  13. I've had the same problem with the ground loop. I haven't noticed the expression pedal issue, but will check tonight.
  14. Not that this is apples to apples, but I'm using Cubase 8 Elements on a PC and have only had one drop out on playback using the Helix as the interface and that was immediately after FW 1.04 update. It has been good since then. There seems to be known issues with El Capitan not only with the Helix, but with other gear as well. Don't know if this gives you any more comfort about your Helix or not, but that is my experience and I've been using it with Cubase since the day I got it.
