    thank you

    moving blocks in snapshots

    This may be a silly question but how do I make changes to the actual signal chain(not parameters) between snapshots. For example in snapshot 1 the amp is third in the chain, for snapshot 2 Amp is 4th in the chain.Or even snapshot one has one path but snap two has 1 and 2A etc. Whenever I try to do this and even add something between the two and switch back they are in snap1 like it's applied to all snapshots. Am I going about this wrong? I got the parameter thing down, I can change those per snapshot easy by right clicking and setting snapshot so it turns white. But how do I go about moving whole blocks around so they only move in one snapshot?

    Possible to share DSP?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to daisy-chain two or even three helix together in order to increase DSP? Or will they just act like three separate units? I recently got a second helix gifted to me and my neighbor has one as well. I have some ideas I want to try but it sounds like a lot of setup and foolery to go through if it's not even possible. I think it would be really cool to toy with though :)

    Much wow. very meme. many hype. Does it shred like Slice? Can it emulate flaccid croissant? or smashing celery? very a-ok number one!

    Has anybody cracked a good Sound on Sound stand-alone?

    Glad you posted this, I was WAY off lol. When I was trying to picture sound on sound well...it wasn't that 8) Maybe I'm too old.

    FRFR speaker !!!

    RD2RK nailed this one. It's just too subjective in it's current state. The question what is the best FRFR speaker is akin to what is the best FRFR speaker your wallet will allow. There are good FRFR's and really good FRFR'S and then like the $18,000 audiophile FRFR deals that they sell over in Japan. The question in itself should be rewritten to what is the best FRFR I can get for X amount of dollars., then we might be able to be helpful.

    We just got a new version a few months ago. What needs to be changed?
  9. I also missed the original statement they made about this. I would love to know what it was.
  10. I'm actually still shocked that it wasn't in any of the 2.5x updates. It HAS to be coming....right?

    I don't really have any specific ideas that should be implemented, just an idea of how to increase marketability. With the pace of updates already reaching 2.5x it's probably not out of the question to start speculating on what Helix 3.0 will look like. If used correctly this could be used as a platform for a second launch if you will. A new marketing campaign hyping the next evolution in modeling, Helix 3.0. If enough new features and layout changes were made it could be marketed online and to brick and mortars as a re-launch of the helix. It could bring in a spike in sales and new end users. It would basically be win/win for both company and consumer. Just thinking out loud. As far as raw feature additions go I think three key areas would get the most mileage for end users. 1. and true pitch shift (I often use both standard tuning and drop tuning and convincingly changing between these with a footswitch would be heaven). 2. some kind of output level meter for clipping purposes (this should have been included from the birth of the device) and 3. and as long as we are wishing for the moon, an ACTUAL Dumble steelstring singer (plzzzzzzzzzz lol )

    Headphone volume knob

    ^This. Any time I creep past 10 o'clock I tend to get clipping. Besides volume can be controlled in so many different ways with the Helix there is no "Wrong" way to go about it. Just get the thing to a workable level for your ears and play with the eq and outputs within that spectrum. If you hear clipping, back down the master and fiddle with the output or build a boost as a parameter setting. If all sounds well then crank the master knob until you hit the sweet spot for your cans. Also impedance is important. Make sure you are using cans with a high enough resistance. I personally don't get good volume out of any cans under 200 ohms. Any less and the helix drives them way overboard to the point of sounding dull and quiet. So that's a factor. The point is, there are many right ways to find volume, not really any wrong ones. Just watch for clipping, check your ohms, and use you ears.

    Has anyone tried the flight cases?

    Thanks for all of the input guys. Anyone care to talk about how long it took to receive these cases? I know they are coming from Germany but what kind of time frame were you guys looking at?

    Has anyone tried the flight cases?

    Has anyone tried one of those Thon Effect flight cases for the helix? I am really on the fence about spending that kind of scratch on a road case when I don't know anything about the company or product. There isn't a lot of info about them. Before I pull the trigger and spend bread does anyone have any horror stories or warnings to throw out? https://www.thomannmusic.com/thon_effect_case_for_line_6_helix.htm

    There's a 2.54?

    I just heard about it yesterday by reading through the forum. I don't tend to run the updater very often so I was pretty shocked by .54 as well. Without the forum I probably wouldn't have known for weeks. These forums are the best tool out there for helix users.
