  1. Well thats an assumption that cannot be disputed. Where were you on my cashless society argument?
  2. Cool thanks. Its just seems a little awkward without PMs. I guess one could make a million assumptions as to "why" that option is no longer available but regardless of the reason, its the first ive personally ever experienced that option unavailable in a forum setting. Maybe youtube.
  3. I find i like ownhammer IRs for original tones and redwirez for classic sounds that i grew up hearing. I havent liked a whole lot else but im trying to. Pretty much anything can be EQ'd into submission. Over all the the original marshall checkerboard from OH is my favorite. Then various redwirez. Heavy Hitters vol 1 (havent tried vol 2) For amps i tend to like mid to high gain...more mid gain, i like to hear most every note in bigger chords....as far as amps go i like all the usual suspects, placater, both JCM 800s, Engl, revv, Park 75, Badonk. Theres a lot of good stuff there but honestly the cab is where its all at. Ive gotten tones i like out of most every amp. You said it well by calling it "a cheaper form of GAS" i completely agree with that but man ive tried a TON of IRs and im pretty tired of getting stuck with stuff i DONT like or wont use. It starts to feel like a waste of money. It really seems like a very individual thing speaking of what IRs people like.. I dont like celestion IRs at all but Pete Thorn will tell you their some of his favs. Same with HX cabs. Im still on the fence about the York audio stuff. He has some very bold sounding cabinets but the EQ needed to make these cabs sound right to my ears is the complete other end of the spectrum of what im used to..which is darker OH files. I tend to feel most amps sound best at the very edges of their capabilities. ie: adding a bit of gain because the mids are maxxed out. I dont know... just babbling here :)
  4. Tried to send one to my bud and didnt see an option for it, so i clicked on a few random forum members names and still not seeing that option.
  5. Yeah im sure you ARE happy. If youre new to IRs (and thats all i use, HX cabs dont work for me at all) i think you'll find over time you'll develop a bit of a catalog, for lack of a better term at the moment. The cool thing is that redwirez, ownhammer, york G12M25 IRs sound completely different from one another. Ive owned Helix for 5 years now and stumbling on to a stunning new IR can really open up a lot of doors and make playing super fun. Just when you think your tone is pretty damn good, i'll end up finding a new IR that takes it to another level. Good luck with all that.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Having the same issue. Installing 2.91 now or whatever is latest
  12. Try other USB cables and or jacks
  13. 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.
