    Lakas,i think it might be best to start a new thread with your question,i think it may get buried/ignored in this thread,of course i'm not suggesting this just because i'm really interested in the replies :D

    Wireless Receiver when using Helix

    I've read(but I don't have Helix or a G10),that the more robust G30 receiver can be used with a G10 transmitter.

    I know as I type this I shouldn't get involved in the FRFR discussion,but i'm too old to start learning lessons now :rolleyes: . In fact I may be learning I've deleted my long winded response :D

    Easisest way to Demo Native?(for a dummie)

    Yes you are correct,but as I said in my second post I now have Reaper running,but I just don't need all the stuff with it,so I thought try Savihost & it was only once I followed your link I realised I couldn't use the Cab loader with the Amp plug in(LePou),i should say that my next step is try LePou through 3 types of playback systems,to get a feel for the sound & what to expect,before downloading Native. I have no idea how necessary the Cab loader is to give me a benchmark for Native,hence my question,about not being able to load it. i do appreciate the help & info & i'm not trying to change the goal posts,i'm just reacting to stuff as I go along :)

    Easisest way to Demo Native?(for a dummie)

    thanks,twpmeister.i've checked out the link,i've read on the site that only 1 vst can be loaded with Savihost,does that mean if I download it to my amp sim,i can't include the cab impulse,which is a separate .dll,or am I misunderstanding this.?

    Easisest way to Demo Native?(for a dummie)

    Thanks for the replies & sorry for the late response,instead of asking more questions,i decided to download Reaper 64 & a Free Amp plug + an i.r. loader & a Cab i.r.. I also bought a used PS Audio Box as my Guitar interface. I went this route to see if I could get it all working,before downloading the Native trial,i wanted to spend the inevitable days of trial & error with the Free amp sims(etc),so that I could possibly get the maximum use out of the Native software. Well I finally got my Guitar playing back through the Sims,but it's all a bit hit & miss & cluncky,because really I have no idea what i'm doing. I now want try the same thing with "Savihost"?,to see if I can get that working,i really don't need all the stuff in Reaper & seems like taking a sledge hammer to crack a nut,but I have no idea if Savihost will be any easier :( Is there an official site to download Savihost?,I can only find 3rd party downloaders & i'm twitchy about 3rd party stuff. I should point out i'm only trying the Native software with a view to buying a Helix LT,but having failed miserably with 4 previous modellers,it seems like a good idea to go this route. To Triryche,no I no longer have the 500X(I have tried 2 & a DT25,with no useable gigging results.
  7. I've been on the forum before with HD500X(twice),but failed with it. :( I want to try the Helix Native demo,but I have NO experience with recording software,is there a way of getting Native working as a sort of stand alone editor(like HD edit,with learning a DAW?. I've read something on another forum about a software app. that may let me do that,but thought i'd ask the question here.

    Poweramp / Amplifiers / Acoustic Amps Suggestions

    Can i just say,i tried a GA212,with a HD500X & luckily for me,i couldn't get it working through the S/R(probably because i had the 500X S/R set wrong,lickily i had bought the GA on S.O.R.,because as an amplifier(with or without the 500X),it was the worst sounding Amp i have EVER plugged into,but i also have to say,that that was with the Pre-Amp in the circuit,but be carefull,yhere is a reason they had such a short lifespan & where offered at crazy blowout prices.

    DT25 First Impressions at Band Volume(now with Band)

    Well i finaly,got to use the DT25HD & Cab last night at gigging volume,these are my thoughts. To use Channel switching with Different topologies is going to be tricky,as probably every DT owner knows,there can be big volume differences,which may be able to be dialed out with more experience?. Anyway to get to the important bit,the sound quality & gigging level suitability. With our 3 piece Rocky/Power blues type band,no problem with mixing with the caveman :) . Topology 1: useless for me way too clean,i started playing in the 50's when clean didn't really exist & i've not moved on much. Topology 2: may be ok with a bit more familiarity,but immediate impression,not enough Body(a bit Marshally?) Topology 3:I could & probably will use this setting,with gain whacked up(a lot)good driving gutsy sound & with Guitar volume backed off,cleans up really enough for me a bit like my old AC30TB (the one with the white control panel on the back). Topology 4:This setting alone is worth the price of admission(for me),the best highish gain channel i have ever played through,i could cover our whole set -list with Top 4, Channel A: with the gain backed off to about 10'to,I could go from 50's rock & roll(with Guitar volume just cracked open to a Great rocky bluesy rhythm(with Guitar volume at about half way,to a nice rock lead with Guitar full up really sings. Channel B:Will do enough gain that most everybody playing in a Pub band could ask for,even decent Metal. So,Topology 4 is great & once i've sorted out maybe 1 more Topology,this Amp can be the best Amp i've ever used(i tend to cotton on to an Amp i like pretty quick)& then stick with them 'till they become un-reliable or sadly too heavy, I'm going to just check i'm not delusional about the sound over the next few gigs(i don't think i am)then i'll buy another to keep it company. 2 of these should sound amazing on stage,can't wait :rolleyes: . Anyway that's my little revue & thoughts

    No sound when booting linked HD500 and DT25H

    Really no problem,i know i'm a pain when i start ("going on"),as my wife call it,so i just always assume everyone else thinks so as well,but if i am being helpful i'll show her your comment,she won't believe it otherwise :D .

    Marco.as mrtreehugger states,i've posted this ad nauseam. If that works for you,well & good,but the correct procedure is,as i've posted earlier,have you downloaded the L6 link connectivity document? It does confirm the procedure is as posted above. :) In fact i have to credit this to Brazzy,when i posted about the document earlier,i hadn't realised he had already posted the relevant sections in the document.

    Het,mrtreehugger.I can't tell from Hey,mrtreehugger.I can't tell if you think i'm interfering &/or being a pain in the a**e,or if you think i'm helping :) If you think i'm not helping just say the word & i'll stop posting in the thread,but 'till then :D I believe given the signals being carried,that using an XLR cable is incorrect & is just a way of sort of getting it going,but that an AES 110 Ohm cable is the correct cable,an XLR will corrupt a Digital,at best. I too wish Line 6 would chip in on this. Just be assured my only intention of being active on the Forum is to help(if i can). Cheers.

    Yes of course Marco,why do Line 6 even mention an XLR?,maybe a bit sensitive about stipulating AES,in case it sounds like you need a bespoke cable?which you do.
