  1. thanks- yeah, mine is a Dec 7, 2016 helix order too... so far my new backpack order is still in "processing" status on guitarcenter's website. I think i will try that too, thanks. It looks like their online store is also out-of-stock on the backpack too. Hopefully they're just having supplier issues and it will all get worked out when they're in stock again... in the meantime i just need a better way to travel with this thing! that pelican style hard case with foam looks interesting, although i like the convenience of a backpack.
  2. Thanks for the response. I hope you're right and he was just uninformed when i asked him why their website said they were available but mine wasn't shipping... http://imgur.com/a/chYiq I may order one for store pickup to see if it arrives or not, then get the store to make it right as my backordered free order...
  3. Thanks for this thread with helix bag/backpack/cases. I'm bummed. I ordered my helix during the promo offering the helix backpack free with purchase at guitarcenter. It's been on backorder since then, and this week after missing another estimated ship date support tells me "These are currently on a backorder............. We don't have these at all....... they have been discontinued" what a bummer! He also said they didn't have any alternative cases for the helix to offer me. Anybody know if this promo was run by line6 directly, or by guitarcenter?
  4. I tried tonight to use assign looper controls to helix stomp switches by assigning midi CC to them, but the helix does not seem to listen to its own midi despite being set to the correct midi channel. I WAS able to control the looper by using a computer over usb midi sending CC controls as defined in the manual.
  5. I realize i'm a noob here and don't mean any disrespect. I agree, you shouldn't buy something you need today lacking a feature hoped for in the future (no matter how simiple/basic). The idealist in me would like to think of the Helix as a hardware platform for an evolving software feature set, but there are no guarantees of future updates/upgrades, so i hope people keep buying them to motivate line6 to continue to invest in the platform! I might have known the midi sync feature didn't exist had I done more forum research ahead of trying to use it. I DID read the manual which didn't mention it, but did mention all sorts of other midi features (I thought "global tempo" meant sync) which is why i assumed midi tempo sync would be a baseline feature, but of course, i don't have a ton of midi experience. (I did build an arduino based midi tempo sync box that converts to analog tap for my nova delay and tap-a-whirl!)
  6. Then i stand corrected. It appeared to work in an isolated test of changing the tempo a few times repeatedly. Thanks for the link to the other thread.
  7. must be they haven't settled on the appropriate resolution yet ;)
  8. You might also want to try editing the Windows shortcut and try the "Compatibility" tab settings for "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" or "Run in 640x480 screen resolution" (that might be too low to work well). If those work, it's preferable to me over the global windows resolution settings which affects all programs.
  9. i tested it yesterday on 2.11.0 and it worked from midiox. edit: and maybe it's the developer in me, but i hope the reason it was broken is that they were working on something midi tempo related that they aren't talking about :)
  10. You can also setup the DAW to send quarter note high values directly to the tap pedal with CC 64. It's more work, but it's a workaround... Either way saving tempo with snapshots, presets, or in your DAW, it's more work than the Helix being able to simply listen for midi clock sync. The advantage of setting the tempos on the DAW side is that when the song tempos get changed, there is only one place to setup changes.
  11. I'm shocked the Helix does't have midi clock sync capabilities! I really hope this important feature gets added soon!
