  1. My group purchased a Behringer XR-12 and couldn’t be happier. We are a four piece band, 2 guitars, bass drums plus two vocals all going through it. We set up the drums to run three mics through it but haven’t used it. There is an XR-18 with more capability but the 12 should do you solid. Everything controlled by an IPad or laptop and it is the size of narrow show box.
  2. Since I have upgraded to 2.8x I have had this issue often. HXEdit loses connection to the device. I have also encountered the unit freezing up but not nearly as often as the connection interruption. Sometimes I need to reboot to fix and sometimes just turning Helix off then on. I am on Windows 10.
  3. Thanks folks and sorry for the confusion. The threshold is what I should have stated. I’ve since started investigating noise gates and results of the parameter. I haven’t experienced much noise with my guitar but the Input Gate is on by default. I’ll start with it off and work from there. If I never need I will look in global to see if off as a default is an option. Thanks.
  4. Greetings, I’d like to hear how folks leverage the Tolerance parameter on the Input Block. Not much in the documentation and searching did not yield much (which may have something more to do with my phrasing, but...). For context in case helpful, I use Multi input type. I mostly use my PRS Custom 24 but also have patches with my JTV-69S as well. I play into a mixer and out to desktop monitors or L2M. Pretty simply setup. Some times other guitars (Strat, ES-330) but really mostly the PRS and 1/3 of the songs the Variax for Eb and open G tunings across various simulated guitars. What does increasing or decreasing the value supposed to do? Thanks in advance!
  5. I am happy with my LT but my demands are low. FRFR and mixer to FRFR so nothing external. No amp or pedals. The one time having the LT came into play was when I used headphones. The LT does not offer a separate volume control for headphones that is found on the full featured Helix.
  6. Welcome. First, there are a lot of Factory presets to check out which are already loaded into your LT. The Helix community uploads patches to the LIne 6 CustomTone site. Here you can search by title, artist, etc. and download presets. Line6.com/customtone
  7. Welcome to the Helix party. You will have to copy and paste one block at a time. I’d try and align the two presets next to each other (1A, 1B). Warning. Save after EVERY paste.
  8. I run a dual path after the amp with one chain having a cab and the other with the Leslie. This allows the signal to be 100% either way or any blend. Most of the time it is a blend which I use for a Gilmour patch and a Frampton patch. Although the Leslie can work as an effect, I treat it like a cab.
  9. A Para EQ block following each cab block is where I adjust EQ and hi/low pass filters. I start at 80 to 7.2 but lately is seems I rarely stay at 80 and raise to 100-110.
  10. Clearly I am couple years late to the party but perhaps to help future ‘searchers’ through the forum, I found where I place the looper is important. To use the looper to adjust presets - record yourself and continually playback while adjusting parameters until desired effect - you place the looper FIRST in the chain. To record one snapshot, say rhythm, and playback with the same parameters and blocks as recorded, and play over it under a different snapshot, say lead, place the looper LAST.
  11. Hi Folks, I’ve searched and found bits and pieces of things that sound like my issue but not quite there. My Variax sounds fine magnetic. Modeled is another issue. If I am any modeled guitar, I have the issue but more predominantly when tuned 1/2 step down. The 6, 5, and 4 strings sound fine. Slight ‘wobble’ in the 3, increasingly works on 2 and furthermore on 1. If I strike the first string easily it sounds like two strings playing slightly off. This is not the acoustic of the string coming off the guitar, is is through the amp. I had a proper setup just performed as I’ve read some issues that were fixed this way. WHen I received the guitar secondhand two months ago I updated the firmware. Anyone experience the same problem?
  12. Thank you for the suggestion. I will try it over the next couple days and let you know.
  13. +1 same here. It isn’t prevalent but certainly happens more. In the past, I would experience this when the USB was plugged into an USB 3 port. Once I moved it to an USB 2 port it never dropped. Since the upgrade it has happened more but random enough I cannot find a pattern.

    That's it???

    I’ve owned my Helix LT for about ten months or so. Like many of us here, I love it. Although I don’t take advantage of it currently, the platform is awesome. Developing and exchanging patches across various devices for various purposes is great. It was only a matter of time before this thread kicked up with no new ‘toys’ in the latest release complaint. Glad everyone loves the tuner. I truly think LIne 6 is harshly criticized by some for over delivering. In my ten months of ownership there have been at least three updates. Delivering all the legacy effects(for which I still haven’t gone thru many), many new amp models such as Placater, Cartographer, etc and many new effects. It hasn’t been that long since the previous release. Lot of people have requested metering. I’d love to see it to to help maintaining volumes. I imagine that is something the new refresh rate will help with. Either way my purchase has only increased in value three times now.. And the ecosystem keeps building out so I am learning SOOO much from folks here, YouTube, etc. Thanks to all for that.
