  1. You can go straight to 3.6
  2. Also there were Grammatico's before 3.6, It just added an extra one.
  3. Good advice @mmccain, I think the bigger issue is if it was out of warranty, an authorised service centre would charge for a replacement footswitch pcb. I have the same issue with a DSP board that won't communicate over USB.
  4. There is a very short cable between the processor board and the screen which powers the backlight, it's possible that it could have become dislodged.
  5. Good point, I guess it landed at a more convenient time here in the UK.
  6. I'm not sure what went wrong but the cabs are in the firmware not your backup. That only contains your presets and settings.
  7. I can't believe that no one is talking about the new Grammatico amp. While I appreciate that it's not to everybody's taste it really is a fantastic sounding amp.
  8. There is also a lamp test in the test menu, I forgot about that.
  9. The switch and LED are seperate parts and changing the LED is not for the faint hearted. There's four solder pads on that! Also there are two LEDs per switch so it's unlikely that both have failed. Craig
  10. Are you sure there's a tonal change and not just a volume change? The FX loop should absolutely be set at 100% that's not debatable so there's something else going on. Do you have the FX loop and B unit in and outs all set to the same Line/Instrument?
  11. If the FX Loop Mix is set to 100% then latency won't be an issue, it sounds like you've got a parallel path somewhere. Unplug the output from B and you should lose all signal, if not then it proves the parallel path.
  12. The PSU is a board on it's own and wouldn't be too difficult to change. That said, I've not heard of one failing before.
  13. I just edited my post but not before you replied.
  14. There isn't a fan in a Helix. If you're hearing a noise I'd suggest that the PSU board is making it which isn't a good sign.
  15. Something like these Craig
  16. I can't remember where I bought mine but they're a generic RGB Led, it measures 3.1 x 2.1 mm if that helps. Craig
  17. I'd say it's a hardware problem and it's a coincidence about the firmware update. Craig
  18. Start it in test mode FS3&4 select UI Test and see what it indicates. Craig
  19. I don't know about in the Helix but in real life a split would cost -3.5dB.
  20. @datacommando and many others have the patience of saints answering the same failed update questions time and time again while others just don't bother answering them anymore. All the instructions are displayed in HXEdit and if for some reason the update fails, the recovery instructions are easily found in this forum without starting a new thread.
  21. Maybe it would be better if HXEdit didn't tell you about the new firmware until it had been updated itself?
  22. Cleckheaton was a whole different world to Tingley, we had to catch the bus to Bradford for the gig and missed the encore so we could catch the last bus home! The Roaring Silence came out before the gig and was the reason we went but you're right about Bruce and Dylan and all the others that MMEB covered.
  23. Yes that's true but I grew up listening to MMEB not Bruce Springsteen, I'm trying to think when I first heard Springsteen but it was a long time after my first ever gig!
