    Helix/DT amp integration on the way!

    Helix here I come!!!! This is great news. I think the DT25 is a killer amp with any effects processor. L6 please get the english guy that does the YouTube videos to explain this. He is awesome.

    Tubes

    @psarkissian. How do you go about purchasing the tubes from Line 6?

    Tubes

    @psarkissian Sorry I noticed something. This link has the same info but it mentions the pre-amp tube is the chinese made 12AX7. You mentioned 12AX7B. What is the difference?

    Tubes

    @psarkissian For the DT25 you mentioned 12AX7B China. So I take it that any manufacturer is ok as long the tube is from China?

    How to save presets from the Edit program? hd500

    I love my POD and my DT25 but the Edit program needs an overhaul. Not likely to get improvements given the time since last update and L6's focus on the Helix line. - It is clunky - Deleting patches is a pain - Crashes - Set things up and then mysteriously something else changes - The text is a bear to read because of the colors and font sizes. - No full screen support (if anyone knows how to do this on the mac please share)
  7. I got the ATT to take on trips and don't really want to take a computer. Has anyone tried to use this unit to record directly to the iPad ? PleAse share how you did it Thanks

    New version of HD Edit?

    Guys my comment was simply to highlight that there is a significant price difference between the POD and the Helix and because of that it is more difficult for a non pro to justify the latter. I'm sure there are pros that use the POD and amateurs that have the Helix but I don't believe this what L6 intends. L6 has said themselves that the Helix is a different product in a different category. My comment to L6 still stands....L6 improve the clunky HD Edit or make a product in a similar price range that has a decent editor. Oh.....and integration with the DT25 would be great :)

    New version of HD Edit?

    @ Guru Not so sure about that. According to L6 the Helix is a different product category and I don't believe it is intended to replace the POD Series given the very large price difference between the two. I see the POD as a product for mid level guitarists ahd home musicians. To me the Helix is more for really serious amateurs and pros. Now it could be that maybe L6 is no longer interested in the lower tier of the market which could explain why they haven't replaced the POD or update the vey lmited HD Edit application in a long time. Either way the HD Edit software reaaaally needs an update. Its look and feel are very outdated.

    New version of HD Edit?

    Lines 6 folks. Any probability that we'll see an updated version of this software?. While it is better than tweaking the POD HD500X by hand as software it really leaves a lot to be desired and it is really clunky - The look and feel is from the 80s - You can't delete patches..you have to do tedious cut a paste actions - Why did you make it so small?. The text is really hard to read if you use a studio type of workstation where the monitor is further back. Every time I use it I have to lean forward to read anyting. - You have black text on top of a very dark blue background...this is really hard to read! - Why isn't it a full screen app? Please guys.... an udpate asap! - That said I do love th my pod + DT25 setup...it is preety sweet JG

    DT 50 discontinued?

    The DT25 still shows up in the current product line section of the LINE 6 website and Amazon has some as well.
  12. I would recommend that you contact L6 directly about this. Submit a ticket with this request and they will likely respond.

    Replacement Tubes Recommendations

    @ Just Startin' I also have a DT25 which I love. Given all the comments on this forum about replacement tubes I wanted to get a clear and concise response so I opened a support ticket with Line 6 and here is what they said. 1 - For the 12AX7 preamp tube you can buy Electro Harmonix, generic chinese, Ruby Tube, or Sovtek. 2 - For the two EL84 power tubes you must use Electro Harmonix or Sovtek (Electro Harmonix owns Sovtek) While I have read about other brands that people have tried...my recommendation is that you stick with what Line 6 recommends. Also if you don't have training on amp repair and components installation....stay away from doing it. You can damage the unit or get hurt. Peace out JG

    DT25 Head - Replacing tubes

    @Just Startin' The amp was designed with the recommended tubes and L6 only tests with their recommended tubes. While you may be able to get away with other tubes it is best to go with the L6 recommended set. As Gear Head pointed out you could have unpredictable results not to mention that if your amp is fairly new you may void the warranty. Best

    DT25 Head - Replacing tubes

    @ radatats Thanks man. Very helpful post. After I posted I made a few calls and it turns out there is an authorized L6 dealer here. They don't sell L6 amps but a tech there did say that if I bring the tubes (I went ahead an order a spare set of EH tubes) and the bias specs (which you provided) they can do the setup. Feeling much better... JG
