  1. Ground loop issue maybe.... try separating your electrical plugs from the same source. there is also products like humbusters that get rid of 60 cycle hum.
  2. if 6 isn't enough, get the floor / LT / rack ............. it's simple, when you bought stomp it had 6 blocks...... you are spending to much time worrying about what it doesn't have.
  3. to record wet using the Helix, make sure the output is set to Multi output. as for the noise. i don't understand you patch design, you have a split path doubling up to path 2A. there is a distortion block after the amp.....try turning off and on the different patches. good luck.
  4. soon......you will have meters. perhaps you won't have to go through all this effort then......my short answer is, I have no idea. But i'll be making my own IR's with mikko soon, so this is relevant to me perhaps.
  5. MIkko (ML sound lab) looks to be an amazing platform for fine tuning/creating IR's exactly how you want them to sound. That's what I'll be doing. STL tones Libra is another cool platform for mixing IR's. Both platforms utilize advance studio techniques, so the results can be outstanding relative to the static IR's available., which are still awesome. The best thing you can do for IR's is understanding the recording side of guitars /cabs and speakers and why different mics / distances are used and why mics sound different etc....(its a rabbit hole) AND always audition at the intended volume and preferably with a track going on in the back ground, this will ensue your tone cuts in a mix. my 2 cents.....
  6. How many HX family members do we have? it's turning into the Jerry Springer show. Jerry, Jerry, Jerry.....
  7. what patches you make for your studio monitors, generally will not translate to IEM's, AT ALL. unless you're an actual mixer using really expensive IEM's and you know them well. you seems to be very particular about your sound, yet your applying a one size fits all mentality. Not sure that is ever going to work for critical listening.... I do studio mixing, i have to balance my plugins with gain staging ALL the time. I see the Helix as the same amount of work, the final product is always worth it to me. if an essential variable changes, so do the settings, that's a cold hard fact. oh yeah, your audience gives no ducks about how you sound in reality.

    Wah settings

    i don't understand it either, but if it sounds good and it is good. let the sleeping dog .....

    Wah settings

    not sure if this will help....turn the mix down on the effect...75% or so and try that.... i don't use Wah a lot, but on the one song i did, i did this trick and it made it sound way better.
  10. There is a lot going on here. how are you currently doing volume checks? if you have a daw, set up a recording channel when making a patch.... now you have a output meter. I;d rather not give up any possible DSP to a level meter. what volumes are you making these patches at? should be gig volume on the device you are going to use live. Live should have specific patches for live, imo. recording should have another set, imo. 60 patches is a lot imo. what are they for? cover band with different genres? try to start with basic patches - 1 clean 1 clean boosted 1 classic rock 1 modern rock 1 Metal or hi gain. then populate 60 patches from there. I used to have 50 patches set up individually for different songs....does not have a good return on investment. I have 4-5 patches that I'm happy with and cover the songs for the most part, if one has a funky effect, then I'll set up another patch to include it.... good luck.
  11. my advice - settle on one tone at a time and learn to adjust parameters in time. The helix can be adjusted on the fly using the expression pedal. Do this at rehearsal. complete one tone, move on to the next. Also schedule it with your mates to do tone checking for 15 min before rehearsal. It's a good habit imo. 85 db is not as loud as you'd think. That's a pretty standard volume for mix engineers as well. Even if you hit the tone's for ten min. Force yourself to make quick decisions, those first thoughts are probably the right ones. stick to ten min, the deadline will force you to make decisions. good luck.
  12. IR's are simply snapshots of mic positions /distances / angles / of different speakers using different mics, etc. You purchased OH, which is a thoroughly professional company that provides all the snapshots or choices one would need for finding a "mic'd speaker cab" for the particular application you are doing right now. For those that know, carry on. For those that are overwhelmed, stick to the folders that are pre-mixed etc, until you gain an understanding of WHY there are a million choices. I prefer companies that offer the gamete of positions / mics / mixes etc. TO me, they understand the IR business the best. It seems the majority of users talk about what IR to use live, but I think the studio environment is where all of the options are required and geared towards initially. this rabbit hole is a big one, its a good one though, make sure you pack a lunch too.
  13. I try not to let this drive me nuts, whenever I do shows, I show up at the last min and leave right away, to avoid "those people" who just can't keep the cork soaker shut on tone, because of what they saw. I usually reply with a "i saw your GF/wife dancing her panties off in front me"...I'd say the tone is working perfectly as intended.
  14. 2.9 won't be released until we have at least 10 pages of mostly non relevant subject matters....lets go team!!!!
  15. People should be more worried about whats going to happen to tube amps, not modelers.
