  1. I've sent them both to you via PM. To echo Lone_Poor_Boy, he's quite right about this forum being incredibly helpful. Spent a lot of time listening (well, reading) and learning, and occasionally getting help from people far more knowledgeable than I, so thank you all for your input.
  2. I struggled with piezo settings originally, as I recently got a piezo equipped LTD and wasn't quite sure of the easiest way of dealing with things. My computer setup sounds similar, and the way I tackled it was by using two cables - regular pickup jack on guitar to guitar in on Helix, and piezo jack on guitar to aux in on Helix. On the preset, if you set the input block on path A to guitar in and the input block on path B to aux in, you can then use path A as a regular guitar, and path B as the piezo. I found that the key to getting a good acoustic sound was using an acoustic IR, I used a free IR that I found online. I can share this preset if you'd like.
  3. Thanks for looking at this and trying to help, I appreciate it - I have just restarted the computer to screenshot what I did, and it now works! I've changed absolutely nothing, so not quite sure what happened there.
  4. The output block on path 2 is set to multi and the output block on path 1 is to path 2, which is how I want it to be, I think. I need the signal to come from reaper, run through the signal chain on path 1, run through path 2 and out, so I thought I'd need input block on path 1 to be USB 3/4 (The output track on Reaper), output block on path 1 to lead to path 2, then output block on path 2 to return to Reaper. The above makes sense to me, but I receive no dry track from Reaper so something must be amiss. If I have path 2 input as USB 3/4, then it works, but obviously the signal does not go through path 1.
  5. I am trying to reamp a track through Helix from Reaper. I have recorded the dry track that I want to reamp, and set the output track to be USB 3/4. On Helix, when I set the input on path 1 to be USB 3/4, i get no signal going through. However, if I set the input to USB 3/4 on path 2, it works as expected. Any ideas on where I would find the settings to change this, or any tips for obvious steps I may have missed? I'm ready to feel like a fool for missing the obvious...
  6. Replied to this in the other thread, but just so you see it... I had this problem not too long ago. You can use the aux in for guitar, but the impedance is much higher and as such is normally better for active/hot pickups. I got the tip of my cable out by screwing a long screw into the lodged tip so that it was stuck on the end of the screw, then simply pulling it out. It may take a few attempts as the clips are quite stiff, but it did work for me. Hope you get it out!

  8. It was a loietnt cable picked up from Amazon. A lesson has been learned, although to be fair I couldn't physically remove the tip from the other end with pliers!
  9. It's been an age since I asked about this, but finally got over the fear of sticking a screw into an expensive electrical opening and wanted to thank you for your help - Everything extracted and Helix fully functional again!
  10. Thanks for the replies - There isn't enough surface on the broken jack to add glue to which touches the tip I don't think, but I'll try that, thanks. If that fails, my current plan is to put a drinking straw in the jack as a protective sleeve for the jack, then put a matchstick tipped with epoxy through and into the lodged tip. Wait for that to set and hope its strong enough to pull it out. I'm a little loathe to open it up and poke about. I'm lucky it's on the aux in so the helix itself is still usable, but will need to sort out at some point. If this doesn't work, I'll have to come up with a plan B.

    Broken cable tip

    So, I was playing away with my Helix and afterwards pulled the cable out of the aux in jack on the back. However, the tip of the cable disconnected from the cable itself and is lodged in the aux in jack... I'm not really sure how it happened as there was nothing wrong with the cable, and trying to disassemble the other end to see what I have to work with isn't working as the tip is so f@@@ing securely on! Any bright ideas how I might be able to get it out? Can I open the back and get at it that way, or is it a completely closed jack?
  12. Enjoying that irony on an amp modelling forum!

  14. http://line6.com/support/topic/23827-squeaking-expression-pedal/?hl=squeaky&do=findComment&comment=181644 My thread from exactly this issue!
  15. I had this a few months ago and cured it this way: Open up the underneath and you'll be able to see the pivot point of the pedal. Undo the tensioning screw a little bit and apply some lubricant to it. Rescrew it back in and it should be solved! I used WD40. I've had no problems, but it's not to be recommended unless you're happy putting corrosive fluid near electronics...
