  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. https://www.amazon.com/Ebtech-Hum-Voltage-Filter/dp/B0002E4YI8
  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.
  16. I'm in Los Angeles, but I'll be visiting London in the first week of August. I'd be happy to help if you still need it at that point. Have you double checked that you are plugging in to the guitar input and not the Aux in? I've made that mistake once or twice. You could try enabling the input pad. The earlier advice to use the filters on the speaker blocks is really helpful. What method are you using to connect Helix to your speakers?
  17. I don't like the update process. I'm really not thrilled with the fuzz pedals. I'm going to have to send mine in for a repair to the joystick. That said; I really do love this thing. One of the most fun pieces of gear I've ever owned.
  18. That is very awesome! Great work. Can I ask where you got the multi-colored nuts for the 1/4" jacks? Those would be handy to have.
  19. This is great. Thank you for sharing.
  20. I have that amp. I have a few presets that I use as pedal boards into the Vibrolux, and it sounds fantastic!
  21. I do this all the time with speaker IRs. Load two of them up and move one to a parallel path. I believe you would have use 1024 IRs if staying on one processor. I don't think you can use two 2048 IRs on the same path.
  22. I would love to see this added and was hoping it would be in this update, but really doubt it will happen before the end of the year.
  23. Add a prefix to each IR name with the slot number (001 greenback, 002 vintage 30, etc...). And/or take a screen shot of the loaded IR page of the Helix editor on your computer. I decided early on to create a folder on my computer where I copy all of the IR that I load on the Helix. I then rename each with a prefix.
  24. Agreed. I'm really looking forward to having the workbench integrated with the Helix.
  25. Yes it is. I used to run a similar setup. I know there have been some issues with channel switching on Mesa amps. You may want to look into that.
