  1. Hi everyone!


    I have an out of warranty Helix that some time ago started to bulling me with a footswitch that when i press it... it's like pressing twice. It's the same Footswitch that allow you to start or stop a loop (obviously in the loop block). The cons of this are obvious: Do you want to stop the loop? Nope, it will not. Do you want to engage the booster? Nope! not this time buddy... 


    So i was thinking in cleaning it with electronic cleaner spray (I don't know if it spells like that) but i don't know if i can break the led, the touch sensitive, clean without opening the back or if i should do it! So please, smart people o Line6 community... You are my last hope!

    We said many times, but i think it must be said once more... A metronome and/or a rhythm box, i think it's important to be able to practice at home or where you want without needing to use a youtube drum backingtrack on PC or Mobile phone... because we have Line6 Helix, the almighty machinnnnnnne hahaha

  3. I have to disagree about the metronome idea - it is not something I want on Helix; I am thinking it is going to be quite dangerous; presumably it is switched on or off per looper instance, so in the middle of the live set you switch patches to one you last used while practising at home, switch on the looped and the metronome now comes out of the PA at high volume and the only way to stop it is to stop playing and either tap like crazy in foot controlled editing or get down on your knees.


    Don't get me wrong - using a metronome is a very important tool, but I use a free app on my phone for simple practice or a drum pattern player for more complex things such as EZ Drummer. I just don't see it as something that an Amp/Effect tool should include - at least while the looper is not quantised, and if you need that complexity for looping then Helix isn't the right tool.


    That said, have you looked at this (phil_m posted here and TGP):





    Mate, i dont know how it should be programmed (it is Line6's work!) but if you have an On/off button in the looper block and it is Off by default always... there are no real problem. Fractal has it and i don't read any report of their users!

  4. I hate to tell you this but you just wasted a lot of time writing about all the things you'd like them to add.  They don't look here for such things, they look on IdeaScale where your ideas get voted on by other users to see if it would be worth adding.




    Oh thank you. At least this wasn't that similar to praying a superb god that will ignore you because here i can do copy paste hahahaha. thnx!

  5. Thank you Line6 for the BE 100, my feelings to my Helix floor unit is right now true love, all the money (and efforts to earn it) now is paid... I can't wait to the channel 1. Futhermore, i had no hope in the Legacy effects, but once i saw it i understood it has few things in common with the stock effects of the Helix.


    But i think it's a nice moment to say what i think it would be interesting to be in the next patch (futhermore the friedman's ch 1 hahaha):


    I use Helix in ALL my musical moments, not only in live or in the rehearsal room, i also use it at home for practicing scales, arpegios... and i consider essential to improve the Looper time limit (i dont know if it is possible) AND add a metronome, please, we all NEED a metronome. Maybe inside the Looper as an extra option like the 1/2 time option... (if you let me start dreaming,it would be awesome the chance of change the tweak sounds and/or a rhythm box!!)


    And At least at the Helix Editor, a decibels meter that help to balance levels between effects and channels or snapshots.


    I think this two thinks are a "must be in", at least for a full time user like me.


    Cheers and thank you for your time!

  6. Hi there!


    Yesterday in the morning i talked with the technical service and this afternoon i will send it away... [i think i am going to feel nude without my helix :( ]. I have read about the warranty extension, but it's only on US, isn't it? I am from Spain... do i have any chance to extend it?



    Could be a water damage :(


    OMG NO, i love it like a son xDDD 



    Likely the previous owner spilled something on it.


    I think not, but how knows?

  7. Hi everyone!


    Two months ago i got a Helix but with a year and a half of use already. Everything was ok but two or three weeks ago it started to do strange things... like Buzzing in the XLR output (the cable was new), the big volume pot is making noise in the signal some times (i need to move it a little to fix it), and the worst of all: one of the footswitches makes 2 pulses in one, it is that when i push it, it's like if i push it two times, futhermore is the footswitch that starts the recordings in the loop and as you can imagine... it become VERY annoying. 


    So my question is: is the warranty going to help me or i should sell the last kidney? Note: i registered as mine a month ago
