  1. thanks for the insight I should have mentioned that I am NOT looking to replace Helix but only the Saffire Pro. Yes, latency matters a lot and as much as I love hx probably anything from the focusrite lineup has better performance here than hx :-)
  2. hi all, I have a firewire (yeah, I know, it's 2020... back to the point) Saffire Pro 14 services to terminate in favor of a better (and Windows-compatible) interface, so I'm really curious how do the inputs on Helix and Clarett compare. I'm targeting perhaps USB 4PRE, and please don't talk me into the Scarlett afaik their preamps are far inferior to the Clarett series. Or maybe somebody has both Helix and Clarett and could kindly provide some DI of both interfaces ? The thing is, audio-wise Helix has set a high standard for me, so my secondary (or should I say - other) audio interface has to have as good audio inputs.
  3. I have still three pedals that Helix doesn't do. EHX Freeze, Digitech FreqOut and a looper one, all for very obvious reasons, and I can very much relate to GAS being regressed
  4. there has to be another story behind it, since the lt price hasn't changed at all (at least at thomann)

    Helix 2.9

    same here. Helix [granted, with some work] sounded great from day one, thus added functionality and customizability is very welcome

    Helix 2.9

    do you mean to say any snapshot to ANY footswitch ? I wonder, what endless possibilities this brings to us !!

    Helix 2.9

    this is veeeeery exciting update ! Ive never asked for updates (bought my helix way back when only snapshots were introduced) but the additions are super useful, each update has a thing or two for everyone, it seems. Well played, L6 ! Does " Update from HX Edit " mean that there is not going to be a need for "updater" install anymore ?
  8. at 449 and HX modelis it'a a "RIP hx stomp"
  9. 1. does there exist a 5stomp/5snapshots submission ? 2. also, would be nice to have tap tempo button persistently display tempo value, just like exp pedal, so handy
  10. once the blinking tap tempo switch is enabled, the problem disappears, indeed. But I always turn off the tap tempo led
  11. Footswitch 2 dim light goes off. Firmware 2.8. An easy to replicate bug. 4stomp/4snap mode, in general settings "dim/bright" switches. Create an empty preset. Insert FX block anywhere into chain. Assign bypass to footswitch 2. Press "MODE" to enter stomp mode. Voila, FS2 light goes off. Return to previous mode, still off. You can touch the FS or click bypass to have light return, but still, it goes off changing between modes. Tried on other switches, all normal. Yes, globals and everything were reset when upgrading fw.
  12. uninstall all previous hx edit, hx usb drivers, all updaters. install hx2.80. launch updater. that should solve. it least did for me, I was having exactly the same notorious "50% problem"
  13. hey all I ran into this issue, too (stopped on "boot failure", helix wasn't recognized by updater), on Windows 10 x64. What helped was uninstalling ALL hx drivers, and reinstall the hx2.80. Doesn't say in the instructions, but well, I'd suggest L6 adds this to some knowhow or faq page
  14. I too have issues with helix footswitches, but only the tap tempo, particularly footswitch 12, and it is a different kind of annoyance. If I have timebased effects in a preset tied to a tempo, entering and leaving tuner mode sometimes changes the tempo thus the tails of effects. Aargh ! I would appreciate a possibility to remove taptempo feature from the surface at all, leaving footswitch only for tuner mode.
  15. how can an update (and it's free for chrissakes) be disappointing ?
