  1. ok so I get that one is for pedal tones that you would change with snapshots. In the last update the the 4 osc generator only sound when I struck a note on my guitar kind of like a synth ala super ego type sound. Now they both just play a drone sound? What is the proper function of this module, what would be the purpose of having two modules that do the same thing? Anyone else seeing the same behavior? or maybe I need to do a reinstall on the update? Just confused with this is all. Thank you
  2. So digital eq is nothing more then delay networks. Reverb is a bunch of short delays as well. the human ear perceives very short delays as eq changes or frequency cancellations. Short as in the 1 to120 sample range @ say 96k sample rate. That would translate to fractions of a second, micro to mille but I don't have the equation in front of me to be exact. By using those small delay times he is creating reverb that is also shelving the high end as well. All eq's in the box work on this principal. extremely short delay's are heard as eq changes and the further out the delay time is increased we get to a point where it is perceived as early reflections. By cascading a bunch of delay's with very short delay times, as short as you can make them. This is called an FIR filter.
  3. No your right the behavior is not what one would expect, and the name of it is "Hard Gate". I would expect it to have that behavior too.
  4. Don't want to sound unappreciative of the new update but I am having trouble wth the 4 note synth generator. it cuts out abruptly at the tail end of the note and does some very random warble things. Am I just not setting this up right or is that the behavior of this particular model and if so, would it be possible to update it to have a smooth fade out? Any thoughts on this module would be welcome. Thank you.
  5. This girl here is getting herself all done up just for the get low wouldn't wanna dissapoint her now would ya?
  6. line 6 is busy creating a masterpiece I'm sure but just for fun............
  7. Yes its coming out tomorrow so so awesome you said march right? Oh wait, is this a leap year?
  8. would be awesome if they offered different body types with this type of wood and finish. Not a big fan of the Gem but I bet it plays and sounds amazing.
  9. connect it via the sends and returns on the back of the helix( I have the rack version of the Helix) or line out of the helix to the line in of the voicelive. or you can go digital ins and outs. I like the sends and returns option personally. mono send from the helix to the Voicelive, stereo return back to the Helix. Or mono return, either one. Using the looper would totally work in that situation too. Just remember that where you send and return from in the FX chain of the helix will matter quite a bit. if you Have a series Fx chain in the Helix and send out of it at the end of the chain all of your signal chain will be effected by the Voicelive. Obviously if it's parallel then you have two completely different FX routes and only one of them will be processed by the Voicelive. Send from the Helix at line level not instrument level and connect to the line level inputs on the voicelive. option two would be to send from the Helix at instrument level and use a DI box to kick it down to mic level and then go into the Voicelive's mic pre input. This way one could take advantage of their favorite DI boxes( U5, reddi, Rnd, etc.........). Or send from the Helix too your favorite channel strip and then to the Voicelive round trip back to the helix for further processing. Its all good and the tonal options are only limited buy your imagination and of course available cash flow. Last way is to send from the Voicelive via the guitar thru to the Helix's front instrument jack, this creates a split from the voicelive. this way one could process their voice and their guitar separate and then mix from front of house or from your daw. There is also midi control, slave one to the other and change your patches and snap shots together!
  10. The rack version is a better fit for studio in my opinion. I would have bought that instead of the floor unit in hindsight. However it sounds great and all the reverbs and effects that are in it work just as well for guitar or whatever your running through it. The reverbs sound much better in my opinion then what comes in the Helix, it's a great fx unit period. you can get a b stock or used one for right around the same price ($299.00) so yeah go for it. Been using it with the helix and the combo is stellar. I can answer any other questions you may have so feel free to ask. You may be able to find a used one cheaper but with no warranty and or tech support.
  11. Me want Noooooooooow! lol Multi Band Compression sounds groovy though.
  12. Maybe they will surprise us and give us more then what they posted.
  13. Is it time yet? Is it here?...........................Me want update now. :D JUST DO IT!
  14. Yes in a live situation a mic on guitar is very difficult to manage with the feed back issues in small venue and worship type situations. I was suggesting a mic on an acoustic amp however mixed with the direct. I speak from an engineers view point on this. The best results have always been this combo for live and recorded situations for me and quite a lot of others I have worked with over the years. This is especially true for all acoustic electric bands which there are quite a lot of here in the north west. acoustic jam bands are not uncommon here. lol all that high end quacking can send people down the street to next venue really quick. Again your situation seems a lot more mellow with the various clips I have listened to. That bright clear tone with delay and synth totally suits what your doing and I quite enjoy it by the way.
