  1. Removing the clear plastic film which shipped covering the scribble strips (Expression Pedal display and Main display window) exposes their windows to whatever the environment throws at them! One easy solution I used was to use a large tablet sized screen protector. These are the sort of clear film sheet material commonly sold in smaller sizes to protect smartphone screens. They are very reasonably priced and often include multiple sheets in one package. (Tip: Buy one for last year's large tablet and it will be priced well below the current model's precut material. Also buy the type which is peel and stick -- not the type which requires any activating liquid spray.) Simply use a straight edge and sharp razor to cut the film material into long strips for the Scribble Strips and appropriately sized sections to cover and protect the Main Display window and Expression Pedal display with about a 1/8" border. I have found these to adhere well and do a great job!
  2. Reading this thread, moments ago had no problem accessing https://line6.ideascale.com/c/ It seems to be operating nominally at this time. YMMV.

    As a reminder of what was recently discussed in another thread, search for "Slope" in IdeaScale. The first three hits are worth considering if you wish to vote them up. You can also post another if specifics of what you seek are not sufficiently detailed. If you do post a new suggestion, post the link here for all to consider voting it up. Happy New Year (a bit early) and here's to 2023!!
  4. Start fresh! Begin by using Win 11 File Manager to backup any custom Presets you may have created if you wish to preserve them. Then uninstall all of your Line 6 software from your PC. Next download from the Line 6 website a clean full copy of HX Edit 3.51 which is the most current version (released Nov 29, 2022) for Win 11. Launch this and allow it to install all the components to your PC. When completed connect your Helix to your PC and launch HX Edit. Confirm that it shows HX Edit 3.51 is running, and confirm that your Helix device is running 3.50 which is the latest version of the device firmware. If HX Edit prompts you to install 3.50 firmware to your Helix device, allow it to do so and follow the steps precisely. One of the steps will be to perform a Backup. At this point, you should be able to use HX Edit to do a Backup of your device. Regardless of the above steps, it is a wise idea to perform a Power On Factory Reset of your device. See HelixHelp.com for the Reset Options for your Helix device. Should you wish to Restore any of the Presets which you may have backed up using Win 11's file manager, or subsequently using HX Edit, it is important that you perform the Power On Rebuild Presets to assure any Restored Presets properly conform to the latest version firmware and HX Edit. Again, see HelixHelp.com for the Reset Options button combination for your device. Hope this helps. Happy Holidays.
  5. Yup. Encountering the same error: "Community is set to Read Only. Any update operation is not allowed." However a search for "Slope" did return 21 Hit results with many of them requesting adjustable slopes for the various EQ Blocks. The Error message is preventing voting up any of the existing posts.
  6. I have not looked, but I would be surprised if this feature suggestion were not already somewhere amongst the IdeaScale feature requests. If you add it to IdeaScale, post the link back to this thread and to TGP, so everyone can see it and vote it up. Happy Holidays.
  7. Not all of the EQ filters in the Helix ecosystem have the same slope! HelixHelp.com assets that the Tilt EQ Block "is a subtle 6dB EQ". Also see Craig Andertons, The Big Book of Helix Tips & Tricks. The PDF is loaded with information about Helix and HX family product EQ! On Pg 65 of version 1.1 Craig mentions that the Low and High Cut Block Block "has 18 dB/octave filters". A search for "EQ" in the PDF returns 363 hits. The book has plenty of his charts and also has a few hundred presets. You can find it from Sweetwater Publishing for $19.95
  8. Craig's Big Book of Helix Tips & Tricks plus included Preset files are well worth the $19.95! If you're looking for free stuff, check out Craig's several freely available articles on Sweetwater's site!
  9. Thanks. Forwarded the TIDs along....
  10. @PierM please post your Support Ticket info here and I'll be happy to attach it to a post I just submitted to the Beta Testing Team. Same goes for any others following this thread whom may have submitted Support Tickets.
  11. I have no idea if there are different internal software controls for the various encoders and rotary control knobs on the Helix and HX family hardware. I only know that during Beta Testing the sensitivity was adjusted, in response to Beta Team responses, at least once.
  12. The Rotary Encoders' sensitivity was enhanced in firmware 3.50. If you are experiencing instances with selections skipping or jumping when using any of the rotary controls, submit a Support Ticket to Line 6 describing the specifics of your findings, so that the sensitivity may be further refined in the next firmware update. The best place to report anomalies is by posting a Support Ticket to Line 6!
  13. If you can grab a Helix Floor or LT and a Helix Backpack (or equivalent) you'll almost not even notice carrying or transporting the gear. The Helix Backpack has plenty extra capacity for additional stuff (cables, add'l pedals, tablet, and still more room) plus, it stands vertical when loaded, and is a breeze to carry. YMMV.
  14. Thanks for posting Igor's input (as I do not venture to FB).
  15. There was one New Cab found in the 3.50 Pilot's Guide which was not in the actual 3.50 firmware. This is likely a good indication that there will be more New Cabs coming. This past Friday, Eric Klein posted to the TheGearPage.net Forums: "More bass stuff is coming." The Line 6 Firmware Downloads Page reveals that firmware 3.50 is about 26MB. This is about 5x the size of Pre-3.50 firmware, which was about 5MB for the past several versions. It was about 4MB before that, and the original firmware 1.06.5 was about 3MB. How much more firmware storage capacity there exists in the Helix Family and HX Family hardware units and how they'll choose to best effectively manage the capacity is known only to Line 6.
