  1. I'm interested in hearing about your experience with these. They seem like a good idea. I'm wondering how they sound for acoustic guitar as well.
  2. I believe the original pedal is a design (or maybe a mod?) created by Ben Adrian from Line 6. He posted about it somewhere online with some details. Probably on the huge Helix thread on The Gear Page.
  3. Do you have the Helix master volume (the large volume knob) turned up all the way? That is where it needs to be set for unity gain.
  4. Very cool! Is this something I could have done at my local print or sign shop? What did you need to adjust on the spacing?
  5. Agreed. I use 4 cable method a lot. When bypassing my tube amp's preamp, I will usually use the preamp only models on the Helix. With some models it sounds better to use the full amp.
  6. I believe the dual cab block automatically pans the A cab left and the B cab right. This should be the only difference verses using two split cabs.
  7. I have my Helix set up this way. I use path A for one amp and path B for the other. I have the output block of each path hard panned so each signal stays separate. It sounds like you want to use the same path and effects for each amp using one at a time. You could just assign the output panning to a foot switch or snapshot setting and achieve this.
  8. I run my Helix through my tube amps often and I am very happy with the tones I get. I rarely use the global EQ, so I would suggest turning it off and only using it for adjusting to the room you are performing in. The Helix is at unity gain with the big volume knob all the way up. This is the first thing I would suggest you try. Also, be sure you have any cabinet and IR blocks bypassesd. You didn't mention if you are running in the front of the amp, in to an effects loop, or 4 cable method. This info could help with troubleshooting.
  9. Some great advice in this thread. I would also suggest trying a different speaker IR. The Lynchback is a great speaker, but may not get you the clean tones you are looking for.
  10. I have a Zoom G3 that I take with me as a backup for gigs where I use a FRFR speakers. I do other gigs with the Helix through a Brunetti Pleximan (small, light-weight amp head) and 2x12. The amp is the backup for those.
  11. I'd love to see; - multiple parallel paths - user presets for blocks - separate modeled power amps - add a corresponding 1, 2, 3, 4 to the send/return block icons
  12. It looks like a very good power amp. I've been considering one of these myself. Are you going to be using it with a band? One of my concerns is the power level.
  13. I'm the original poster on this thread. I would suggest that you create a support ticket. If you have had the unit for less than 2 years, it is still covered by warranty if any repair is necessary.
  14. You could try the Ebtech Hum X. I've found it useful for these situations.
  15. I'm actually in London August 7 through 11 if that helps. The other thing you can try is adjusting the guitar impedance at the input block. This can make a big difference in some setups.
