    Using Volume Pedal (HX Effects)

    Hi. I've got a Dunlop DVP4 Mini X in the Pedal/Ext Amp 1 on my HX Effects. For some reason when I try and learn it to a parameter it doesn't work properly. If I go from heel to toe it'll go from 0-100 and then back to 0 again. I can't find anything in the manual about this. Any help? Thanks.

    HX Effects - Tricks to get around 4 snapshots

    Thanks. That's great. Can you set the full travel of the pedal to go to say, 50% mix? Thanks.

    HX Effects - Tricks to get around 4 snapshots

    Thanks. So say I need 5 snapshots really. 1) drive 2) drive, pitch 3) drive, boost 4) drive, phaser 5) drive, boost, delay. So I could have delay on set the expression pedal to control the delay mix, and then use the 3rd one with the delay mix set to 0 with the pedal back, and then hit the pedal to turn the delay on, and then lift it up to go back to normal, and use that as my like 5th one? That’s what you mean?
  5. Hi. Loving my HX Effects but feel that the 4 snapshots could get a little limited. Does anyone have any tips on what we can do with an expression pedal or anything else to get more options? Thanks.

    Can't Load IR's

    I fixed it. It seems the program I was using was called Helix. Not HX Edit. I don't know really. I just uninstalled and installed that and it's working fine now. :)

    Can't Load IR's

    Hi. I can't load IR's into my Helix using HX Edit. Both are the current firmware. I click load IR, or attempt to drag them in, it indicates I have tried to do it, and the slot lights up, it gives me a percentage until completion if I load multiple ones, but they all just come up as EMPTY and they just won't load. Any ideas why? Thanks.

    FX Loop Block

    Perfect. Thanks a lot. So just to clarify, still use a send/return block even though I don’t have anything before the amp?

    FX Loop Block

    Hi. Just a question as there’s a few different blocks. I’ve just got a Helix. When playing live I want to use my amp for amp sounds and the Helix for the effects. I want to use the 4 Cable Method. Do I use the send/return block or do I have to put the send block and the return block in individually in different parts of the chain? And if there’s nothing needed before the amp I just place it right at the beginning? Here’s what I’m thinking the two types should look like. Please correct me if I’m wrong. 1. Wah, Pitchshifter, Send/Return, Phaser, Delay, Reverb. 2. Send/Return, Phaser, Delay, Reverb. Many thanks.

    Tips for workflow (Logic)

    I’ve just got Native and I’m getting rid of the Kemper as I’m using the Helix more and more. I’m sure that having loads of tracks with Native open will use excessive amounts of processing power. I have a fairly recent MacBook Pro (2015) and I’ve had 40+ track projects open without a problem when using the Kemper, but I hear a few stories about high CPU useage. I could freeze tracks I don’t use but then I need to unfreeze them to playback and stuff which could mean more stress in the system. Maybe it won’t be any problem, but I’m just asking how you chaps do it. Thanks!

    Helix Native

    Or you could just use Native for all of it and then just bounce the track to a new track and turn off Native on the old tracks :)

    Which effects are heavily dependent on position?

    Yea. Every single effect will sound different dependant on where you place them in a signal chain. This is the same for when using an amp. Normally I'd go. Distortion/Fuzz/OD, then modulation like phaser and chorus, then delay with reverb on the end.

    Helix Native

    And once it's recorded and tracked you could just turn off Native or will the track be dead? I guess you could bounce it and all your reamps and just turn off Native on those tracks, right?

    Helix Native

    Great! When's it out?

    Helix Native

    So as long as I've bought it I'll always get the updates and the same features as the normal priced version, or are you forced to connect it to the unit? Not that I'll get rid of it, but I still wouldn't wanna spend £100 on something that could be useless if I'd ever sell the Helix. If it were I'd rather get the £400 one at the time if I ever did sell it.
