  1. Thanks indeed, Ed! yesterday I received the adapter from Apple directly. Guess what: works like a charm! The Apple adapter from Amazon (bought 12/2019) is sold as Apple device, looks the same but does not work the same. now what does that tell me...? exactly!
  2. @Codamedia: thanks for your response. Yeah, the adapter was sold as an original Apple. Paid 45 Euros for it. It worked, can’t remember which Firmware I had then, but since upgrading to 13.3 it does no more. I am keen to know what you come up with. thanks!
  3. Whatever I tried: My iPad Pro (9,7“) AND my iPhone 8 Plus both were upgraded to IOS 13.3 and do not recognise the hx stomp’s USB out. I can’t choose no midi in, no audio in. I use the original Apple Lightning to usb 3.0 adapter (camera connection kit) which also features the lightning IN for power. Also tried different usb cables. The hx stomp Firmware is 2.82. Strangely enough, when I plug in the adapter to iphone or iPad and there is no device connected, an error message turns up: accessory cannot be used, usb 2.0 hub, not enough power or similar. But even when I power the adapter, it does not see the hx stomp. I bought the adapter some weeks ago at Amazon. I called the apple support, but they could not help. Anybody else had this? Does your setup work with IOS 13.3?
  4. Thank you, does it mean If I go with a converter with 2 A max. (Ionic audio or alike) may powerbank does not have to power down so much it’s 2.4 A output and might deliver a clean current? Or do I have to look for a „less intelligent“ powerbank? Problem is they all seem so intelligent now with ismart, Qualcom and what not...
  5. That‘s the question: is it the powerbank (found a thread with someone who said , the RAV 26800 did not work) or the Converter? The Birdcord provides solid power up to 1 A. Not more, and they do not have a converter going beyond. There are other solutions on the market for that. Still I wonder if the fast charging feature of the powerbank creates this cycling crackle... Anyone who knows a powerbank that actually worked with the hx stomp?
  6. I want to power my hx stomp with a new RAV 26800 powerbank (one USB out = Max 2.4 A) and a Birdcord 5 to 9V converter. The result is: It starts normal, then there starts a fast pulsating crackle and I also have a stuttering sound. Gets faster when more efx in the stomp are switched on. The powerbank delivers more than 1 A at 9 V, the Birdcord converter cable delivers a max of 1.0 A. Should be enough for the Stomp that runs from my Cioks at 800 mA. But it does not work. Is it the RAV powerbank or the converter cable which is causing the problems? I’ve read about users who managed to run their Stomp from a powerbank. Anyone knows a solution?
  7. Yep, this is true. I am in preset mode and I hoped FS4/5 have the same capabilities as FS 1-3 sending PC messages. Wouldn’t that be logical? It seems I will have to use a very small midi switcher (Desaster area) and send it’s midi via the HX Stomp midi in to midi through/out. I need 5 midi pc messages to run my looper app on my iPad (grouptheloop).
  8. Thanks indeed @rvroberts
  9. Do I have to trust my ears or is there an input or VU meter do monitor the input signal and set it right ( just before clipping)? I could not find any hint in the manual.
  10. Hello, I am new to this forum and bought a HX Stomp to accommodate my AX8 or simply have a tiny wonderbox that fits in my guitarcase, including guitar that is ;–) I hooked a Lehle Mini footswitch up to use it as FS4. Can’t find a solution to send a midi PC command from the footswitch to midi out of the stomp. Don’t tell me the stomp is limited to 3 PC messages that can only be sent by its own FS 1-3. I can switch a block on and off with the ext. FS, but can’t trigger that midi PC. I hoped for a better midi out implementation, but still love this little thingy...
  11. Sorry for my premature statement above folks. I listened to the video again with proper earphones and had to realize the Helix sounds much more dynamic and refined. Still I could swear I listened to a shorter version of this video before, right? However, different miking, different player and playing skills with the Hd500, me thinks. but why use a video like that to market the helix? (Which indeed to me sounded slightly "muddy" (for lack of a better word) on the lower strings, for a plexi that is - as someone else pointed out earlier here. Well, no way around trying gear out for yourself if you want to shell out your hard earned money. Learnt this the hard way when I had the tc electronics so many went crazy about but Irealised after the purchase almost instantly it will never be for me...
  12. Standing in line for a fractal fx8 but also wanted to testdrive the Helix also because of its brilliant UI. But I expected a significantly better sound than the hd 500 after listening to the marketing blurb - just something I cannot hear in the comparison video, especially when listening to the plexi stuff – tone and string definition, where is it? Still happy for every vid that does not mask the sound with high gain settings...
