  1. I mean wouldnt you want to use your ears and decide for yourself? Asking people to tell you what sounds "right" and what doesnt, isnt really musical. Exploration, experimentation, is part of the fun.
  2. Same deal here. Helix tuner works until Helix has been on for a while, and then tuner quits working. To get tuner working again, Helix needs to be turned off and then turned back on.
  3. Its nice but ive never had even a single issue updating in 4 years, and trust me when i tell you im in the bottom 20%, regarding computer literacy.
  4. Im pretty sure they are hard panned by default....but no, no way to pan them off the top of my head. One of a few important oversights in Helix. Edit to the OP: nope no way to adjust the pan without another block.
  5. So yeah, after reading the OPs post and your reference to Native i was a bit confused as to what we may be talking about here, but yeah updating from 2.90 to 2.91 solved my issue.
  6. Having the same issue. Installing 2.91 now or whatever is latest
  7. Try other USB cables and or jacks
  8. A Few thoughts.... output meters.... theres not really a reason to see them all the time. Most any output is kinda set and forget. If output levels fluctuate that much, it most likely means your volume is as well, not good. IMO just two colors for the out meters green and yellow. helix cant clip, so no need to add a third color for clip indication. In/out meters showing at all times probably makes the screen too cluttered looking for my tastes, especially when a gain reduc meter joins up with the always on in/out meters. I think the input blocks are fine. Youre plugging a guitar in, volumes arent really going to alter wildly enough to take advantage of any kind of precisive metering. Take no offense please. Ive been against everything but gain reduction meters since day one, so it could have just as well been DIs name at the top of this post and it would have received then same response.
  9. I would say your assertion is correct. I replaced one IR with another, and that is the result.
  10. Not an issue. Posting for awareness. V 2.90 I couldnt even really tell you what it means, ive simply never seen a message from Helix like this.
  11. Guys im sorry that i posted this cheesy little clip this way. It makes perfect sense that there would be some confusion. Any normal person would have simply posted a vid but i dont really have a "bedroom studio" per say, and thats exactly where i was at the time of posting. If you look at the pic Im actually running an amp first. Its the archetype clean i think. I tried it without an amp at all and it still seemed OK, but the amp in front of the drive just sounded better in the moment. Honestly running a pedal AFTER an amp is the LAST thing i would ever do, but i read somewhere to try Legend on its own and for whatever reason it ended up post amp. I was going to refine the preset and track a bit over the weekend and repost but i'll just leave the current preset here so you can refine it to your own liking. Its ridiculously simple, no snapshaots or anything. The right IR or cab will be the key obviously. I dont use HX cabs. https://www.dropbox.com/s/dxm2962fs8y5ew8/raven111.hlx?dl=0 Thats great. Post amp worked best for me but i havent really had a chance to work thru the pedals. Im going to guess that anything that adds cleaner volume without a lot of gain will work pretty well. Even the studio tube pre would probably do ok.
  12. Just a Steven Slate loop. SSD5.5 to be exact. The Modern Rock preset with a couple very minor tweaks. If you dont already have it, just get it without even thinking about it :) Thats a redwirez IR. I'll see if i can refine it all a little bit and leave the preset here, for anyone who may be interested in that type of sound.
  13. Right? For a drive pedal? Its not bad at all. Definitely more tone than i expected from a "pedal" that i had very little interest in when the update dropped. Turning out to be a favorite part of the update.
  14. Here i just threw a quick 15 second riff down over a loop, tuned how it might sound if i were using it personally. lol super sloppy and only one working computer speaker. im a mess. Im assuming it sounds ok at least for the couple minutes i spent. I really have no way to monitor at the moment. https://www.dropbox.com/s/e6j869y9p3l1m06/new test.wav?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/dgc3y3txvj4wsgh/L drive.PNG?dl=0
