  1. fido083 and Dshow -- I appreciate both of you taking time to answer and I believe that both of you are probably correct. I was leaning more toward the choice of input settings or some sort of global setting. I must confess, I really want to learn more about the Impulse Response (IR). I'm basically ignorant on the IR use, but it makes sense that if someone has an IR assigned and I don't have it installed, then the preset is basically incomplete until I get that IR -- right? It would be great if the IR would transfer with the preset as just another block or "effect", but I realize it's not quite that simple. Thank you both and maybe some other Helixers will comment. I'm just glad to know someone has experienced it and it's not just me! :)
  2. Hello Helix Folks! Please forgive me if this is a dumb question, because I figure I'm just overlooking the obvious in the preset. But several of the CustomTone patches can be downloaded, but when you test them, there is no volume. You can adjust pedal, etc, but still no volume. Do some people setup presets like this and have something set differently in the Global Settings (like inputs/outputs, etc)? Or does it have to do with the paths of the preset? Has anyone else noticed this? Thanks in advance for any enlightenment! geetar42
  3. Hey D.I. -- As always, thanks alot for your reply! I see what you are saying -- and I thought it must be something to that effect, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing a very simple "egg-head" fix. :) I'll see if I can't retrain where I "want" to see the Stomp Effects to the Bottom Row. I think it is left over learned habits from X3 Live and HD Live Series units. Thanks brother!! B)
  4. Guys/Gals -- Someone else mentioned this in an earlier post. I've got what I "think" should be an easy problem to resolve, but I can't seem to find out how to make it happen. :unsure: OK, stick with my feeble brain here and help me if you will -- I'm on Preset 13A -"Come As You Are". In the Global Settings I have it set so my Presets are on the Bottom/Lower row and my Effects show up on Top Row, with a Stomp Box feel. However, when you go to the preset and select it, 4 Presets are on the Bottom Row (good, that's what I wanted) but the only way I can see the Effects is to press the Mode Switch -- BUT -- that clears the Bottom Row of Presets and then shows the activated Effects and the Top Row is blank. I've noticed there are several presets where the effects are on the Bottom Row when you toggle the Mode/Edit switch. Is there a way to always keep Effects on Top Row, or maybe it's supposed to be this way? Also, for a picture reference, I'm trying to keep the setup like it shows on the color Cheat Sheet: Effects - Top Row, Presets-- Bottom Row. I'm sure it has something to do with Global Settings and the Mode Switch. But I can't make it happen on THIS preset 13A. I appreciate you kind folks offering the solution since I apparently can't see it. One Final Note...I repeat that I have the Global Setting for Presets set for the Bottom Row AND that works on some presets as it should, but on some I have this issue. I'm loving the HELIX BTW, just learning my way around. :) Thanks!! geetar42
  5. Arrow269 -- In addition to the reply above, you may find that once you select Lower Row for Presets, you might have to goof with the Mode footswitch by switching it to Stomp Box mode. It took me a little bit to get this figured out as well -- also, you might find that a given preset has 6 or 7 effects assigned -- then all of your preset effects may take up both rows. It's really cool once you see how they put this thing together and the thought that went into the Helix design! Awesome features and I'm just getting started! :)
