saw on TGP that the Helix editor in Beta came out a few mins ago!
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.
