  1. How are you changing patches? It can be slow if you do it from the app over BT.
  2. Make sure the fx loop block in the software is "on". It should be connected guitar->firehawk->pedal board->firehawk->amp in the simplest scenario.
  3. I don't know of a way to turn off the pedals but I think you could drop the whole pedal board by turning off the fx loop
  4. I thought it was only the earlier L3's which needed updating?
  5. Have you found that switching patches via bluetooth is fast enough to be used while performing? It always seemed to me like there was a lag while it was transmitting from the device to the Firehawk.
  6. I don't have a Firehawk anymore but I recently picked up an L2t for use with the Helix and it is fantastic. I have mine on a small stand so it is at roughly ear level when I am sitting down. Just put it in reference mode when you are using your Firehawk with it.
  7. Bluetooth updates are really painful because it is hard to keep a BT connection alive for that long. As silverhead stated, that error means it isn't seeing your device. Make sure that BT is turned on in both the Firehawk and your mobile device. If that doesn't work remove the firehawk from your mobile device and re-pair.

    Speaker question

    Congrats! I didn't have the courage to go all the way to the l3t. Those suckers are tall. Wait, what? Are you serious?
  9. It should tell you what to do at the end of the update. For the rack it should be this, from the release notes: HELIX RACK ONLY: While holding knobs 5 and 6 below the screen, turn on Helix Rack. Wait for the message “Will reset Globals and restore stock Presets, Setlists and IRs…†to appear and let go.

    Speaker question

    I thought I would follow-up and let everyone know how it turned out. I started out by grabbing a pair of 8" studio monitors that were on the used rack at my local store. I felt like something was missing so I did some A/B testing against an inexpensive modeling amp I had lying around. The monitors sounded better than the amp but it I preferred the amp more. I don't think I have the right words to describe it but it was like the difference between hearing the guitar through an amp and hearing a recording of the guitar through a speaker. The monitors were just too refined, especially on the lower end. I decided to try an l2t to see how that would compare and then did the same comparison test with one of the the monitors. For me, this was much better. Even at lower volumes the difference was obvious. An improvement over both the modeling amp and the monitor.
  11. Yeah, in practice it is definitely more than a .05" off. Maybe they are including the width of the outer bars? That being said, it seems to be working fine with the knob removed. It doesn't seem any less stable. It would take a pretty decent force to remove that piece even without the knob and since it is only being used in a home environment for me it shouldn't be a big issue. I do have an external expression pedal but the bigger issue is that I just got mine recently so I am early in the stages of playing with it so I am fiddling with it a lot. In the long run, I will probably put it on the floor and put a laptop in the stand for editing.
  12. Hmm...I got it to fit but I had to remove the knob altogether on one side to get it to fit. I wonder if that makes it less stable. The side doesn't seem to be removable even without the knob. The On-Stage MIX400
  13. Did you have to modify it to get the helix to fit? I picked one up but was not able to get the Helix into it. It is about 1/2" too small.
  14. I am relatively new to this myself so someone else may be able to provide more accurate information but usually think of it like this. volume is the equivalent of the volume control of a physical amp master volume is the volume level applied at the end So I guess in a simplified scenario I would think that guitar volume, drive and volume would impact distortion levels and that master volume and your headphones/speaker volume would not. Of course, the amp you are modeling will make a big difference and anything else in the chain can also have an impact. I would try turning the guitar volume up, turning the drive up, leaving the master volume moderate and use you speaker/headphones to adjust volume to taste. Also, make sure you are using a suitable amp model.
