  1. Do you mean use the mags instead? If so, how would that work with the Alt Tunings?
  2. with more bite and punch. Seems lacking compared to my Les Paul.
  3. I just meant that was the order of the strings that I tune them, not the actual tuning ;)
  4. Thx psarkissian, but I haven't done either of those. I've been tuning the strings E-e-b-a-g-d as I saw on a video. Are there better ways?
  5. Finally returned from holiday. Thx for the input. Indeed the cold from shipping messed it up alot. After letting it warm, it was considerable better. However it's still difficult to even get in tune. I've changed strings before and always pulled them like crazy and they would stay in tune. Here not so much. (and the Helix tuner bouncing around hasn't been helpful). The effect from tuning one string to the others is quite significant. I've never had to take 10 minutes to tune a guitar. Is this always going to be the case? Will it "hold" the tuning until I change strings?
  6. Just got a new cherry 89F and having a hard time getting it to stay in tune. So it's hard to even see if the alt-tunings or even the models sound good. IT takes time, but I can get the strings in tune, but after a little playing or any real string bends, it goes far out of tune. By a lot. I was tuning using the Helix via the VDI cable, but that was too wobbly. Switched to a normal 1/4" tuner and it was more stable. Is there something I can do to keep it in tune?
  7. Has anyone played them in a 4cm? I'm curious to how it sounds with "2 cabs".
  8. Yeah that happens too. I typically reboot the helix and replug in the USB. So no real solution to the app being usuable while also going into the DAW?
  9. When the Helix is phsyically connected to my Mac, sometimes it doesn't see it. So I reboot the helix and close the helix app and can usually regain connection to the app. I"ll then swap over to my DAW Reaper to record and the helix app loses connection. Meaning I can't tweak the settings on the helix thorugh the app, only the physical helix. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to keep both connections (helix and DAW)? It's not the biggest deal, but would like to be able to quickly select stuff using a mouse, rather than reach down and tweak.
  10. Is there a way to use the exp pedal to control my Rockerverb amp gain that I have setup in the 4cm? I can do it for Helix amps, but was curious if there was a way with 'real' amps. Thx
  11. How do you change the exp pedal from Exp2 to Exp 1? I tried pushing down on the toe part, but it doesn't swap. There is a volume and wah in the patch. Using V2.0
  12. That's what I was thinking, but thought it was too bizarre. Weird. Thx!
  13. Just got my helix setup last nite. I'm also running it through a Orange Rockerverb 50 mkii (looks like you have the iii) and Marshall 4x12. Funny, I also have that same Les Paul. ;) Using just the effects loop now to try out sounds and many of the presets sound great going through it. Some sound better taking out the cab(s). Will experiment more and setup the 4cm.
