  1. As you found out yourself, the size of the venue changes everything. While playing a big space you don't need any reverb, Playing in a small venue, especially packed, you may need an extra help on the reverb side. All you can do is judge the reverb at rehershal and I personally set it to the point were I think it is just a little too much, because it will dry out a bit when the place is full.
  2. I kind off solved it, I still think it is more noisy than the hardware, but the main problem is that i was coming in way too hot. When direct in, i was using the old rule of play hard and use the input until it is not clipping. But when your record raw track from helix, you realise how quiet the levels are, so i matched that. there is still a lot of static but when i add a noise gate at the start it is all fine. I haven't done an in depth solving of why so much static, probably an accumulation of many things, but now i can play : Keeping my input level in check and noise gate. try that
  3. I have that same problem. It crackles all the time. and on high gain patches there is so much noise when i stop playing that it is unberable. I tried to increase the buffers, lower the input gain, forcing number of processors to match physical ones.... no difference. The gear and patches are fine on helix hardware. And Using helix hardware is not why i bough native too. Clearly there is an issue somewhere. It kind of ruin the fun a bit. Even with no guitar plugged, high gain patches always have a lot of static noise.
  4. Ok, My mistake. I got sort of worried for a minute (than my ears would not spot that i messed up the signals more than my signal being messed up) :) cheers
  5. Line 6 used to have a promotion for Native on top of the price for registered Helix owners. I got mine for £50 ish I think. I didn't need it, but jumped on the offer, and actually, now it a very useful tool for me. If your rack is registered, you already have a big discount. Check the shop for further promotions. maybe around black friday they may do an extra big discount... ?? cheers
  6. Do you mean that all the unused blocks I keep off for possible use, are affecting the signal ??? That's a big news to me and a definitive request. I don't see why programming wise it would be difficult, "If block is off then go to next block..." It should at least be an option in the global settings, true byPass or not.... I will have to review all my patches :(
  7. i don't have any global EQ set and i tried the patch with a bit of high cut, which is i thing where i can feel the issue. I even tried recording the raw direct sound and use native instead, the problem is still there. It does really feel like tiny compression or micro time skip issue. If i had listen to it in the mix from start i would have just think i had be a bit sloppy, but i was really doing a little lick test. I guess I have to try few things and tick them off before getting back here.
  8. starting from the customtone area of line6 website is always a good start. Search for the player you want and there is usually some patches already there if he/her is famous enough. you can tweek from there if it is close enough. An other way i sometime try to start is finding what gear the player use and try to recreate it on helix. There are plenty of video showing player's gear so that's also a good start point. don't underestimate the "fingers tone" sometime no matter how close the rig copy or sound is, it is just how the other guys are playing too, the vibrato, the little quirks and fine subtleties... For exempIe still haven't find an acdc sound that i am happy with, even though i own an SG and angus rig is really simple.... ;) cheers
  9. Hiya, Has anybody experience recording via usb and when listening not getting the rendition you were hearing through headphone ? I was playing with a very lead sound some very defined legato licks. While recording, i was very pleased with the sound and fingering, but when i listen the recording it feels somewhat messy kind of clippy. Like if there is not enough bit depth and some notes are getting muddy. The tone is there, just the fine subtleties of the fingering that are affected. I have never really noticed the problem before, but to be honest it could be i simply didn't pay attention enough. We are more in the realm of subtle, which i m not always :) I am using logic pro X with both the project settings and the helix set to 48Khz recording. Helix is on 2.50 firmware I suppose i have to try setting the helix to 96KHz to see if it makes a difference, but i have to let my session to 48Khz or i will not be able to match any video recording, and i always though 48K was good enough that you would not ear a diff. But in the meantime if anybody experienced something similar that can be useful. Cheers, Olivier
  10. I don't know about any challenge sound samples, but if you are looking for presets, dig into the custom tone download area.

    Power Cab 112

    If you helix ir list is full, i think you have to accept it and consider yourself an IR nut :) haha
  12. I think it works already, see in the cleatwater video :

    Power Cab 112

    Totally agree ! This is not really a product for Helix users... at least not the non rich ones ! :) Headrush frfr 112 is £300 has 2 independent inputs, nothing more nothing less than the Helix needs. I would have loved line 6 to have a similar simple option in this amp format that looks nice.
  14. it seems so that the new Line 6 powercab 112 is what you want : https://line6.com/powercab/

    Power Cab 112

    found out i think : Powercab 112—$599.99 US street Powercab 112 Plus—$799.99 US street Sorry Line 6, Headrush frfr price still win for me and the use i would have. If you decide to make a simpler version for £300 ish with 2 independent inputs, the would be awesome ! Or add the possibility to plug real amp heads in. This looks an nice product and looks legit, but having an helix with plenty of cabs and IR, that would be redundant to have again speaker emulations and presets..... You still need an helix cab simple straight. Make a other model, the 112 straight, no modeling, tru frfr, 3 independent input (input, mic, mp3), no usb out, line6 link why not). You can probably sell it cheaper because less gadgets inside and you would fit the bills of a lot more people, me first, cash in hand.
