  1. If you are transporting your backpack, the loops can serve to affix cables, mic and speaker stands, Nalgene style water bottles (via the loops for their caps), other small gear pouches, and a variety of other items, like key rings, etc. Use carabiners or the provided velcro straps. Let your creativity and necessity inspire you.
  2. Unfortunately, it may be a trial and error process to find a workable combination of voltage converter and rechargeable power bank. If the voltage converter is capable of providing higher amperage that would be what you would want to find. Also, as the current draw of the Stomp may vary depending on the DSP processing of the Signal Chain Block configuration selected, such a variable power draw of the HX Stomp may be misread by the power bank. I have not measured the HX Stomp's power draw. I do recollect reading that it draws more during startup and self diagnostics. My guess is that during quiescent use, the amperage draw is substantially less. FWIW, I have a variety of USB devices which draw light power loads when being recharged. I have found that most of my power banks prematurely shut off the power charging of these devices, as there's little load on those light current draw devices. Whereas, when actually powering higher load devices those same power banks do fine. BTW, all the power banks I'm referring to are rechargeable lithium battery packs.
  3. Simply. You need more. Amperage specifically. Many of the power bank brands have regulating circuitry to power down their power ports or auto sense the draw of the connected device. Many times I have found several of the power bank type models I have, to be far less than intelligently designed power source side electronics. Often they will prematurely shut down where a solid amperage output USB power brick will do the job no problem.
  4. I too did notice a quick glimpse of what appeared to be a flanged long upper edge of a pedal board or possibly the Helix Floor. I did not notice any writing on the unit.
  5. @sjordan33 my Takamine EF341SC and Takamine P3CD, sound great with my Helix Floor. Each is fitted with Takamine's CT-4B II Preamp system; not the Cool Tube 3 Preamp. My guess is that you should easily attain the tone you are trying to achieve w/o problems.
  6. @onager450 Yes. Grab a Stomp and you're likely to be delighted. With Helix Edit, and Helix Native (if you have it) you'll enjoy great flexibility and interoperability of your Presets of 6 or fewer Blocks on a Single Signal Path.
  7. Depending on your space and budget the IK Loud Micro monitors have gotten great response from many users. I do not own a pair myself, yet I have been considering adding a set. My small monitors are a pair of JBL LSR305s (which work great for near field use) and a pair of JBL LSR308s which also do a great job. Both are very reasonably priced. YMMV.
  8. @godfather_77 Good questions! I have brand new sets of matching Fender 2btn, 4btn and Fender Exp-I Expression Pedals for use with my Fender Mustang v.2 IV and v2 III amps. .I have not used the switches and expression pedals much with the Mustang Amps. Subsequently I got a Helix Floor, and the Mustang Amps became my Helix's powered speakers, so the 2btn and 4btn fender footswitch units and EXP -1 got not use. Still a bit curious if any of them will work as is with the Helix Floor. Now I also have an HX Stomp, and the question remains if either the 2 or 4 btn fsw units or the exp pedal would work as is? Or if they would need to be rewired.
  9. A DI box may be the best solution. Nonetheless, another possible solution could be an in Line Phantom Power Eliminator. Sescom and Triton Audio make them. These are small, inexpensive and allow you to use XLR cables with confidence that any input strip of the console which may still have Phantom Power enabled will not degrade the audio coming from your Helix. B&H Video's page and probably Amazon show the unit's details. Pyle also offers a PHE400 Box, which you can find on Amazon and B&H.
  10. Disconnecting your HX Stomp from your Laptop so that you would only be using the HX Stomp directly with your instrument. If the interference is no longer present, it would point to the Laptop, it's USB port, USB configuration, or USB cable as possible causes. Try another USB cable, then another USB port on your laptop (if it has multiple, the one closest to the power jack is recommended). Do not use a USB hub. If you can, try swapping out the cable. Try another Laptop if possible. It is also possible it could be the USB port on the HX Stomp.
  11. @JimRad One of the fabrication sites shows: 17% Infill and, > 0.2mm Layer Thickness fabrication parameters. Are these specs in your file? If so, that makes things straightforward. What material did you use? PAL? ABS? Other?
  12. @JimRadWow! Jim these are awesome!! I don't have a 3D Printer, but thanks for posting this. Any chance I can send you a few dollars to have you send me a couple in Black? I have 2 DXR10 that these would work great with. PM me if you're so inclined. Otherwise, I'll try and see about getting them printed locally.
  13. Hahaha. I've got a pair of of Yamaha DXR10 and they certainly kick! Simply amazing as floor wedge monitors with my Helix or as backline.
  14. The JBL LSR305 and LSR308 are outstanding and very reasonably priced! I have a set of each. For near field use, the LSR305 are great. If you've got the space, get the LSR308. Also bear in mind that as these are rear ported, placement close to a rear wall is not ideal.
  15. @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.
