    Amplifi 30 Gig Bag

    very cool! just to verify it's the 30 can zipperless cooler here? https://www.walmart.com/ip/Arctic-Zone-30-Can-Zipperless-Cooler/35733211
  4. i have a jtv-89f and use xvive when I'm at my guitar lessons and it works great. Haven't tried it gigging or in the studio though. I plug into the helix when not in the lessons.

    Line 6 Updater not working for me

    the only time i had any issues like this is when I had the editor open and connected to the helix. Only one program at a time can be connected to it. Shutting down the editor worked for me.
  8. the little knobs on the bridge are for fine tuning. when you reach the max/min those will turn use the allen key to loosen up the locking nut then use the tuners, lock the nut then tune with the little knobs. Here is toneking explaining it or search for floyd rose tuning on youtube.

    External tuner recommendation and setup?

    That's correct, but the TU3 has a single red light when the helix tuner isn't activated. So, yes, it's on but It's not active.

    External tuner recommendation and setup?

    I use a TU3 plugged into send 1 and set the helix tuner to 'Send 1/2', when I activate the helix tuner it outputs to the tu3. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/TU3

    no undo-button or -command for last step changes?

    There is an installed program on your system. It has access to the disk. Dropping a .hlx file to disk and reload them in reverse order of drop would be trivial. Even cross platform this is the most basic of system programming. The hlx files are so small I wouldn't even try to do diffs. I would just drop a full hlx file for every change. This could also take advantage of the hlx import code already available in HX Edit. Communication between edit and the hardware wouldn't have to change at all.

    updating from firmware 2.12

    I would think if you just bought it you wouldn't need to backup the presets. Update following the upgrade process linked by @AlexKenivel. The instructions will restore globals including default presets? edit: I couldn't find the 2.12 version either including trying 'archived'
