  1. I recently bought and just recieved a pre-owned HELIX floor which is running firmware ver 2.2.1. Can I update directly to v2.8, or is there a required intermediate step ?
  2. Thanks again, I don't really think I do. I'm going directly fron the unit to ProTools interface via XLR cord. That's it. The main thing is not losing all the work I've put into crafting patches. From what I can see online it appears the LT is not as robustly built and has less ports ?
  3. Cool, thanks. Given my stated studio end use is the LT every bit as good ?
  4. Not long ago I got rid of a floor-version Helix but retained my Helix patches/ backups in case I decided to revisit the Helix. Am now considering the Helix LT, my question then is- can I load my aforementioned Helix patches into a Helix LT ?
  5. It’s out! I applied a dab of super glue on the stub of the ( broken) cable. I carefully stuck it in, connecting to it's on broken tip by way of the nub. I let it dry for 5min, now re-connected by superglue to the original shaft- it pulled right out!
  6. The tip of a guitar cable has left itself behind in the guitar input port, as a result I can't use it until I remove the tip of this cable( you can see it in the pic below). Has anyone removed the back of their HELIX, anything special to know about removing the back panel to get at the jack ? Or would you try something else ? Thanks, appreciate any help.
  7. The tip of a guitar cable has left itself behind in the guitar input port, as a result I can't use it until I remove the tip of this cable( you can see it in the pic below). Is it possible to use the AUX imput for guitar ? Anything special I have to do to make it work or are both inputs essentially the same ? Has anyone removed the back of their HELIX, anything special to know about removing the back panel to get at the jack ? Thanks, appreciate any help.
  8. Thank you. I can't say enough how helpful this video was in navigating Line 6's update process- a clear and easy to follow guide from beginning to end. Well done
  9. Thanks, my question has been answered, appreciate the replies, will post vid
  10. Am planning a series of solo acoustic shows, have crafted a number of acoustic patches which sound terrific w/ my guitar, will be using the HELIX w/ the BOSE L1. What do I have to set up w/ the HELIX to make this work ? Those who've done this please be as specific as possible, explain as you would to someone brain damaged.
  11. Whoa, thanks for this, almost decied to reimport both, glad I didn't! Update- I just re-imported Setlist, somehow my old pactches sound better/ bigger/ fuller than they ever did[ prior to the 2.21 update]- is that possible ??
  12. I just updated my HELIX to 2.21, as suggested I saved both my Setlist and Bundle to my desktop. Have completed the updating I now want to re-install my old settings in a USER list, do I re-import my Setlist only, or Setlist and Bundle ?
  13. I couldn't figure out how to post the vid only from the Vintage Guitar page so this is a link to my FB page, check out post #1 top, Mods if this is an infraction please remove forthwith. I used a' 68 Plexi' patch and a '63 Fender Stratocaster, straight into the mixing console, live through studio monitors, the effect sought that of a pushed Marshall 100wt plexi. For this application I think the Helix worked well. https://www.facebook.com/jon.butcher.311
  14. Yup, the Twin seems to me the way to go too. Someone above mentioned humbuckers being essential to the recipe, I agree. And you know what's a pretty nice semi-hollow for the dough ? The ubiquitous Epiphone 335 DOT[ street price $300-$500], with very few upgrades [ if any] this guitar is a killer buy in the world of serviceable semi-hollow guitars. A good neck, nicely finished fretboard and frets, serviceable pickups and hardware, good looking finishing- and all for $300 or so ??
  15. No doubt about it, 90% of it. But, which of the Helix amps/ cabs would you use, all else being equal ?
