    Helix Native + HX Stomp

    @luckymojo so long as what you will be exporting from Helix Native to HX Stomp is comprised of Six (6) or fewer Blocks (excluding the Input and Output blocks), and will be on one signal path on the HX Stomp, you will be fine! Jason Sadites, has an excellent YouTube video series with many informative vids. One I recently viewed, (but cannot locate the link for at this moment) is on the topic of exporting Presets from Helix Native to HX Stomp.

    Helix Native Discount ...

    Get a Helix Floor (or Rack)! When Helix Native goes on sale again for 30% Discount grab it for $69.99! Helix Native has already been on sale several times and most likely will be again in the not too distant future. The combination of Helix Hardware w/ HX Edit and Helix Native delivers full creative, editing and transfer capabilities of your Presets between the hardware and software. So, regardless whether your creativity strikes during practice, rehearsal, performance or recording, you'll have the tools to work your magic. You've already been using the Helix Native Demo and you're familiar with Line 6 gear. In the unlikely event you don't like the Helix Hardware, many Helix vendors have a satisfaction return guarantee period of several weeks. And, should you opt to keep the Helix, you'll be able to sell your older Line 6 gear at your convenience.

    HX Stomp - Headrush 108 or Yamaha THR10C?

    The THR10C in stereo at near field with the HX Stomp connected via the THR10C's AuxIn sounds outstanding! I have each and used them together plenty of times. Always brings a smile to my face. I also frequently run my HX Stomp w/ Headphones, or with a pair of JBL LSR305 or LSR308 if not with a pair of larger DXR10 Yamaha FRFR monitors or Fender Amps. For near field monitoring at low SPLs the THR10C's convenience (and that it can run on batteries for practice on its own), makes it a fantastic all in one unit for me. I've never tried the 8" FRFR Alto nor QSC nor Yamaha's 8" units. I really enjoy the THR10C's near field stereo imaging, and patching in backing tracks or playing along to YouTube vids is a blast. YMMV.

    HX stomp and Yamaha thr10

    Of course, if you go with a pair of powered 5" (or larger) Studio Monitors (of your choice), you'll have greater positioning flexibility, better bottom end, and higher capable SPLs. Nonetheless, for really close near field use, I've enjoyed using my THR10C with my Helix Floor and with my HX Stomp. I also have JBL LSR305 and LSR308 (either with JBL LSR10S). The THR10C certainly is impressive at near field low SPLs to the LSR305. When I use the THR10C with my Helix gear, I prefer to use its Stereo AuxIn, allowing all the Amp, Cab, and FX choices to be provided by the Helix gear. YMMV.

    YAMAHA DXR10 and Helix. Speaker on a stand or a amp stand?

    Great small base insert! Thanks for posting the dimensions.

    Helix backpack

    The backpack fully loaded with the Helix and gear in the outer pockets stands vertically just fine! There are four generous rubber feet at the bottom and hand grips on the top and sides. Removing the Helix from the backpack alters the weight distribution and the pack may or may not stand vertically depending on how much gear you have in the outer pockets.

    Four cable method cable length

    Always use decent quality cables and you should have no problems. If your cables have degraded and have become microphonic, scrap 'em. Tip: connect the cable to your guitar and amp. Flap the cable against the floor. If a percussive clap sound is heard as the cable is flapped against the floor, toss that cable.

    intermittent joystick since update

    New Global setting option as of 2.80. The 2.80 RELEASE NOTES state: Turn Joystick to Select Blocks Helix Floor, Helix Rack, Helix LT Currently, turning the joystick encoder scrolls through available models for the selected block. With 2.80, you can now choose to instead turn the joystick to quickly move across the signal flow. From the Global Settings > Preferences menu, turn Knob 5 (Joystick Encoder) to choose “Model” or “Selection.” “Model” remains the default. SHORTCUT: Pressing and turning the joystick will provide the opposite setting; that is, when set to “Model”, press and turn the joystick to quickly move across the signal qow. When set to “Selection,” press and turn the joystick to scroll through available models for the selected block.

    2.81 firmware available now

    Installation of 2.81 to Stomp (2.80 had already been installed) went smooth as silk, and took less than 5 mins including Backup and Restore of Presets. Next, on to the Helix Floor...

    2.8 Issues/Bugs/Broken Presets

    I feel your frustration. Encountering yet undiscovered or newly caused bugs is always a potential with any update release. If your Presets and Setlists were backed up before updating, restoring an earlier firmware build and the pre-existing Presets is a quick and simple task.

    I’ve figured out the random volume loss on presets

    You ever see: "Total Recall"? ... the same line: "Two weeks..." ;)

    Recommend good XLR cables

    Also consider SouthCreekAudio.com's cables. I have been using their Patch, Adapter, Mic, Guitar Cables for several years. All have been outstanding w/o a flaw in any one of them and that across a couple of dozen I bought for my own use and as gifts. Very clean, flexible, exceptionally well constructed, inexpensive, and include a velcro strap.

    Best wireless relay for Helix?

    I've had the original G10 since shortly after it was released. I did have the USB charging jack problem, and Line 6 replaced the entire unit for me without hesitation. Since then I have had no issues. No dropouts and this is within a fairly active WiFi bubble at my place. As for my guitars, I've had no issues with any of my electrics nor my Takamine acoustics. Both Takamines have active electronics which work wonderfully with the G10. I am currently about to pull the trigger on a new G10S. This will give me a backup G10T transmitter module as well as the G10 Receiver base which due to it's internal dual diversity antenna design increases the receiver's sensitivity thereby effectively increasing the effective operational range. The G10S's receiver base also provides a convenient channel selection knob making it a cinch to go to another channel if the auto channel selection method selects a channel which subsequently encounters interference.

    @rd2rk, Thanks for digging those out! You should enjoy your Stomp. And, the forthcoming 2.8 fw release will bring more features and enhancements.

    Simultaneous 1/4" and XLR out?

    It is always a good idea to do a thorough run through of any configurations and features you may be expecting to use -- prior to -- a gig or event! There is many useful bits of information in the Helix User Guide and Firmware Release Notes. Until Firmware Version 3.0, the Summer 2016 fw version 2.x User Guide is the best that Line 6 has published. Line 6 has publicly stated that a newly revised comprehensive Helix User Guide will be released only with full integer firmware releases. Thus, the next one is expected when firmware 3.0 arrives. That being said, there is plenty of great information also at HelixHelp.com and in the threads on TGP. If you use FB, there is a large user group there too.
