    Best way to be heard in a mix

    I am using a Helix and the other guitar player is using a Boss GT001 I think. We are both going thru the pa. For some reason I can hear him perfectly but can't hear myself so I keep turning up. When no one is playing, I check my volume and it seems like I am excessively loud until the other guitar starts playing. I don't know anything about eq's but I have heard this problem usually occurs when 2 instruments are using the same eq range. Is there some special eq that would help me be heard better that I could use? Thanks Dan

    HOW TO DO A FACTORY RESET

    I can't find this in the manual so I did a search on this forum and found that no 2 instructions are quite the same, so I am a bit nervous about randomly trying one. Is it documented somewhere in the manual and I just don't see it? Thanks

    Best way to be heard in a mix

    We play classic rock with a few heavier songs. I play a PRS custom 24 and the other guitar players guitar has active pickups. (I forget the make). He is always heard. I use the volume gain when I play solos and have it set to +5. When I play alone, seems like +5 is way too high, but again, I barely hear it with everyone. Just doesn't stand out. I will try some of these suggestions for next weeks practice. Hard to mess around with settings during practice. Thanks
  5. I just bought 4 of them. I should have bought all of them! They are fantastic!!!

    Lost Setlist

    So yesterday I discovered the FACTORY SETLIST 2 was the same setlist as my 4th setlist. Don't know how I did that but I would like to get the Factory Setlist 2 back. Any way to do only that without affecting all the setlists? Thanks

    Lost Setlist

    Are you backing up patches for setlists and where are you saving them to?

    Lost Setlist

    Never did a backup. I had this unit about a month. I had a setlist for my band songs. I think I tweak them every time I play them. What ever went wrong, if I tried to download sets from wherever I saved them, would I get this result again? By the way, I have had strange things happen before, come back later and they are gone. Hoping thats what I find when I get back home tonight.

    Lost Setlist

    So it looks like all the setlists below setlist 2 became setlist 2 but it kept the names of the patches from the below setlists. I am afraid I am going to start over with little time. Guess I should start backing things up :-(.

    Lost Setlist

    Now I have setlist 2 back, but my next 2 setlist have changed drastically. While the names are correct, none of the patches are the same. Everyone is different. what happened??

    Lost Setlist

    That did the trick. How did you know where to get it? Thanks

    HELIX NOT CONNECTING TO COMPUTER

    I just received my Helix yesterday. This morning I downloaded the Line 6 Monkey, which also downloaded the Line 6 Updater. With the Helix plugged to the computer using the USB, and starting the Line 6 Monkey, the device select does not include Helix. I also tried to update the latest driver and it said the file was corrupt. Also downloaded the new editing software and it says nothing is connected. What am I doing wrong? Thanks Dan

    Loud buzz through XLR outputs

    Just had a Spider 5 120 delivered. Only had about 5 to play with it. I plugged the 2 XLR outputs to my PA. The buzzing was extremely loud. I tried plugging the XLR's to a DI box first, but that didn't solve it. I tried the ground lift switch also. Didn't change a thing. Anyone have any idea why this is buzzing so loud? I have plugged many different multi effects in this way without issue. Dan

    Saving Backup Presets

    Used the Spider 120 for the first time with the band. Some how I managed to delete the very first preset fumbling with the foot switches. So before this happens again, where do you store backups? Thanks Dan

    Saving Backup Presets

    OK, thanks for your help. Dan

    Saving Backup Presets

    So if I select "Save to my tone" I can retrieve it at anytime?

    Saving Backup Presets

    I do use the app for downloading and editing presets. I have not created any of my own. So there is nowhere to save what I have?

    Moving Patches Around

    Thanks, that does work. Usually 1 move and I lose my connection or get an error 28. Just start the app again and preset moved. Once in awhile it will let me make a couple of short moves, still better than anything else. Thanks

    Moving Patches Around

    So I have got a bunch of presets I like but they are all over the place. I would like to get them all together starting with 1A. Any way of swapping presets like making preset 21A now 1A, and 1A now 21A? I don't necessarily want to over write things. I have made a list of presets I will never use, so I could start over writing that way, but it would take all day. Thanks Dan

    Loud buzz through XLR outputs

    Actually found I had 1 bad cable, and it helped a lot to turn the noise gate on. Thanks
  21. Currently I am using Foot switch 4 to turn on the Effects Loop which I use as a lead boost. Unfortunately, I occasionally step on the patch 4 switch by accident. Is it possible to hook up an external pedal to perform this function? Thanks

    Adding A Second Pedal to Turn On & Off Effects

    How did you set this up? I have a Boss FS6 pedal that is capable of turning things on and off. Don't have a spare expression pedal.

    Smart Harmony Question

    These all work. Thanks

    Smart Harmony Question

    Trying to make a patch for Bon Jovi You Give Love A Bad Name. The lead guitar is playing 1 octave higher. The smart harmony only lets you go to plus 9 in a specific key. Just looking to double the lower part, 1 octave higher. How can I do this?

    Clean to Dirty

    Using the Pod HD 500X, is there a way to go from a clean amp to a distorted amp using the expression pedal? Can you also do the transition so it is not abrupt as you go from heel down to toe down? I thought there was a patch I downloaded a long time ago but I have searched for hours looking and can't find it. Not positive it was even this pedal. Thanks Dan
