  1. Anyone can tell whether the polarity switch of the pedal should be on 1 or 2 when connecting it to the HX Stomp? Is there any potential damage in connecting the pedal to the HX on the wrong polarity? Thanks.
  2. I'm really enthusiastic about the Helix for itself. But but but, to manny people saying it's not in the same league as the Kemper and the AX8. And in every comparison video on youtube the Helix loses(considering the majority of the comments and what the guy in the video himself saying). On the second hand, I see many happy users of the Helix around the web. So all the happy users, tell me what you think about all that, and if you are a user but not happy I would like to see what you have to say also.have to say also.
  3. I going to buy a Helix in few mounths. I want to buy a keyboard amp in case I'll have to play in a place without any kind of amplification. My question is, since most of the small keyboard amps are just one monophonic speaker, and those are not stereo amplification,what I will have to set in the Helix to work good with that amplification? Is there a way to turn the Helix to monophonic mode? Actually I thought to buy Roland CM 30, it is not exactly a keyboard amp, but close. https://www.roland.com/us/products/cm-30/
  4. I'm doing research about the Helix, thinking to upgrade to Helix in a few month. From what I learned so far, the weakness of the Helix, is the sames weakness of the Pod(which I already own), and it is the cabinet simulator. I saw people saying they prefer to connect an external cabinet simulator to the Helix. First of all, as Helix users, what do you have to say about that? Second, I didn't understood yet, if I must connect another device(like Epsi or Torpedo Cab) to get better cabinet simulator, or do I have the option to download cabinet models(just software) into the Helix itself.
  5. Don't see where I download the updated firmware, and how to install it. I can't find it in this website or in google. I don't even have Global Equalizer in my current firmware.
  6. I just want it to sound more like a real amp. I understand from web research that the weak point of the POD HD is the cabinet simulator, and that is why it sounds unrealistic. I read here that tweaking the Global aqualizer might also be useful useful, maybe even a replacement for an external Cabinet Simulator: http://line6.com/support/topic/8559-hd500x-and-logidy-epsi/ What do you say about that?
  7. In fact I want to know if I can get as good results(soundwise) just using pod with torpedo cab, as it is much cheaper than buying helix.
  8. I already have the pod, so the Helix is much bigger expense.
  9. The true is, that up to now that was really what I always do, use an amp and a few effects, I never felt I need something more than that. That is why I'm looking only on sound upgrade and nothing more.
  10. My budget is: There is no budget. If I'll think something is important enough I'll get the money eventually. I just have to decide now what upgrade am I going to do - adding Two Notes Torpedo Cab with the Pod I already have, or replacing my Pod with a Helix. I need to know whether I have to put aside 500$ or 1500$. Also, I have to decide if I'm buying a bag for my Pod, I need to know to what direction am I going to.
  11. I think you missed my specigic question, fellows. I know the Helix sounds much better, I can even hear the difference on youtube demos, and it is big difference IMO. My question was, how big the different will be with a good cab simulator?
  12. I'm thinking whether it is worth to upgrade, as I have a list of equipment I need, so I'm trying to arrange my priority order. Soundwise, can I get sound as good as Helix sound if I'll add something like Tropedo Cab to the Pod? I know that the is Helix better than the Pod in more aspects than sound, but I'm looking for sound improvement only, and buying a good cab simulator will be much cheaper than the Helix.

  14. I'm going to gig in a few days with an amplified acoustic nylon strings guitar, would you suggest me to plug the guitar direct to the PA, or could my POD HD500X enhance the sound? If so, can someone here please help me to build a good preset for an acoustic nylon strings guitar? Explain how to do it? Or maybe someone here can recommend me on a preset shared in the CUSTOMTONE section? Thanks in advanced.
