  1. I hear you, I'm out of warranty too and I don't fancy sending it back for an expensive repair at the moment. I've re-routed via a Behringer Xenyx mixer which is fine, however the reason I went to direct headphone out is that the mixer seems to lose some of the high end....
  2. Hi, no I use my Helix as an external PC soundcard as well as for guitar (so I can also hear YouTube etc). ALL sound that comes out of Helix Headphones has a distorted/crackling right channel...
  3. So without any changes to my setup I'm suddenly getting a muted but distorted effect in my right headphone output channel. This affects both guitar and PC audio (I'm using the Helix as my soundcard). I've tried rebooting the Helix as well as my PC. I've tried different headphones (they all work perfectly in other devices). The sound from the main 3/4 Output (which I have going direct into studio monitors) is fine. I'm using 2.81 and have also just updated to 2.82. I've raised a ticket, but anyone have any ideas to troubleshoot before I send it off? I bought in 2016 (so out of warranty) which probably means a lengthy and expensive trip to the UK authorised repair centre.. Cheers
  4. I've just seen this thread - Not sure if I've just wasted £60 on an XLR mic now....
  5. So I went out and bought an XLR mic so that I can get vocal and guitar on separate paths and into Skype as one signal. Now what? How do I set my audio input to the Helix as well as the Output? I mean I tried the obvious of setting the Input in the Sound Control Panel as Digital Audio Interface as per the image, but am getting no sound at all on the input... On the Line 6 preset Guitar + Vocals both paths are set to Multi - is this right? Surely this should be really easy??? Jim
  6. I booted up Reaper after a short break and the Audio warning popped up telling me that the Audio Device wasn't found. I've seen this before so I opened the Audio Preferences and went to select ASIO Helix as the Driver/Device. Bizarrely, now the only Helix option available is ASIO HX Stomp.... I have never owned an HX Stomp. As you might expect, if I select this I get no sound... Can anyone help me troubleshoot this? I'm on Helix 2.8, HX Edit works fine and whilst I can't exactly remember whether I've used Reaper since the upgrade to 2.8, I think I have. Any ideas appreciated! Jim
  7. Thanks, but I really don't want to have to buy an XLR mic specially just for this purpose - I thought I could use the combination of equipment I've got already but seemingly not!
  8. No, Helix Floor Yes I've got Guitar on Top path (which works) and Aux on Bottom Path (no sound from mic). I tried 4 different mono and stereo 3.5mm TRS to 1/4" TRS adapters into the Aux - none worked. I really don't want to have to shell out on an XLR condenser mic!
  9. I'm not teaching btw, I have a friend who's offered to critique my playing over skype. I've plugged in my mic into the Aux 1/4" input and used the Guitar & Vocals preset. Guitar works fine, but no mic sound at all... in DAW or Skype I set the Input in Windows sound settings to Digital Audio Interface (2 Line 6 Helix) as opposed to the previous ASUS soundcard mic input.. Any ideas?
  10. Thanks, I was trying to avoid dedicating an entire DSP to handle speech, also means that if I need to use my PC for VOIP I'll have to ensure that the Helix is in the right preset first etc.
  11. I feel like I'm over complicating this, surely people are sharing guitar audio via YouTube or Skype all the time during online lessons etc...
  12. Hi, My setup is pretty simple. Mic into PC Soundcard. Helix as Output Soundcard (via USB and 1/4" to monitors and Headphone Out) I've got the Voiceemeter (and virtual patch cable) setup as per the guide I linked to and can now Skype with a mixer of Voice and PC audio, but I can't see a way to output Helix processed sound to the main Speakers - Line 6 Helix. I'm wondering whether the missing link is to use my DAW (Reaper) to somehow monitor the Helix and send this to the Virtual cable input, but I've got confused over which Driver and outputs/inputs to choose and not got it working. Basically, how do I get the processed Helix output into Voiceemeter?
  13. Hi, I'm struggling with the same challenge and just started a thread Did you find a way to get this to work?
  14. I need to be able to share my voice, PC Audio (eg a backing track) and of course my Helix sound over Skype. I'm almost there, but can't figure out how to add the Helix. NB I'm playing at night using headphones, so cranking up the volume and playing the sound in the room into the mic isn't viable. Using this guide: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/share-music-skype-add-sound-podcasts-audio-clips-like-pro/ I've got voice and PC audio into skype, but I'm at a loss as to how to bring in the processed guitar signal (USB1/2). Any ideas?
