  1. Ive dropped QSC for good. Apparently theyve had a fire at their lab, and ive been waiting on a repair for one of my 10.2s for 8 months now. Ive replaced my two K10s with two mission 2 x12 cabs that sound FAR better and as soon as they get the other cab fixed i will sell them both and be done with QSC for good. Sorry but you have to be able to provide the support you advertise, even if that means sub contracting the work out, as opposed to letting the customers suffer. QSC wont be around much longer at the rate theyre going so getting off the QSC bandwagon ASAP is a good move for anyone.... and besides the Mission engineering set-up just sounds way better.
  2. They shouldnt force you to back up before the update. Its pretty much a waste. Whats the first thing we do when theres a new firmware update? We start loading the new models, making changes, building sounds, ect, making changes to what we just backed up.
  3. You didnt follow the first step of rules and update to 3.01
  4. This is about the 5th ive seen counting another forum....and hey 3.10 has only been out for about 12 hours.

    I think dealers play a bit of a dishonest game all together and do lots of shady stuff, but im not going to freak out because somebody else touched my order. It could be for any number of reasons. Plug it in, make sure it works as intended, makes sure it looks as intended, make sure it hasn been registered, make sure all the package contents are there, and enjoy using it. If over the next 30 days you see evidence of wear and tare, document it and come down on them, HARD. Seems to me youre convincing yourself to assume the worst.
  6. Happens on a PC too. Maybe not to that extent but it happens Of course. Id say the chances of anyone using just one single USB jack are about next to none.
  7. Try using IRs. I dont use helix cabs at all. Some people find them useable but the majority dont like them. I wont use them at all. Ive been playing guitar for 35 years and used almost everything known to man and helix cabs are about the only thing i can say that i am unhappy with or am not able to dial a sound with that suits me.
  8. Which is why i often think that these complaints come down to a monitoring issue...or even a placement issue. One thing ive noticed was when i moved my FRFR from my studio, to my bedroom, my favorite presets were no longer my favorite presets. Of course i just left them alone because ive made this move multiple times now, for cleaning, construction, maintenances, or whatever, and those presets are tried and true, and were built in a preferred acoustical environment, but i definitely needed to make adjustments to get the sound i wanted....whether a person decides to lay them down monitor style, use them upright PA style, stand when they play, sit in front of the tweeters, headphones, you name it, it all makes a tremendous amount of difference.
  9. I just think people are quick to assume the worst. Thats all. It can come off as a bit immature. Especially when there are 12 different threads claiming "bricked".....and then to see that 99% of the cases are easily fixed. It just gets old. No offense.

    Im beginning to think im the only person in the world with more than one computer.
  11. If its fixable its not bricked, hence the term, making your device as useful as a brick.
  12. Only because most people are morons and want to cry bricked at the first sign of sure about .01% of those threads were actually "bricked"
  13. Well thats an assumption that cannot be disputed. Where were you on my cashless society argument?
  14. 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.
  15. 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 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 :)
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Having the same issue. Installing 2.91 now or whatever is latest
