    7CM HELP!!!

    So then basically there's no way to use 2 external amps and use their preamp section and have a single delay set in stereo ping pong between the 2 like you would with a regular pedalboard? I can achieve that but it bypasses my amps preamp which defeats the purpose.
  2. Great catch!! I did the restore and it still didn't work and I was getting frustrated. For whatever reason the Powercab was no longer set to Preset. THANK YOU!!!!!
  3. I performed a full reset and before I even bothered to restore I built a new patch and PC+ does not respond over L6 Link. Turned PC+ off and on, checked cabling yada yada. I guess the next step is to open a ticket with L6. Thanks all
  4. No I just did a straight inline upgrade. My patches all have the correct PC+ speakers still in the presets but even manually within a patch I can't get it to change speaker. I'll try a reset. I have a backup from before. Thanks for the suggestion.
  5. Hi Folks, I updated my LT to 3.10 this morning and now it seems L6 Link is no longer working to change speaker models. I checked for a PC+ update and I didn't one. I used L6 updater to perform the upgrade and that went swimmingly. Just curious if anyone else has run across this or if I did something wrong. Thank you!!
  6. My PC+ just came today and had the same issue. Updated the cab to 2.x and now I'm able to control from my LT with each preset with an AES/EBU cable. Keep in mind it won't change the display on the PC+ but the color ring will change.
  7. I know I'm late to this party, but I've been using the Power Amp In on my Katana 100 with my Helix LT and so far I like it. To be fair this is tiding me over until the Human Malware crisis is over and the band can start playing again. I hope to have a Powercab+ by then but still plan on using the Katana at home as possibly the other speaker for stereo fun. To OP - yes that is how I do it as well. Instrument cable from the LT mono out to the power amp in on the KTN, and use amp with no cab in my modeler. I've found that using preamp only (at least in Helix) can have unpredictable results depending on the model. Volumes are all over the place and reverb and delays respond differently. I just use the full amp but no cab and I've been able to eek out some really good tone to my ears. I'm hopeful that compared to the PC+ with speaker modeling the KTN will pale, but right now it sounds pretty darn good!
  8. It certainly has some interesting features. I have several Neural amp sims and they are great but hardware is a different game altogether. I just bought an LT today so I'm not going to be in the market for a while. If they are still in hardware after a couple of years and they have established a positive reputation for updates by then, I'm sure I'd give it a serious look.
  9. I got tired of waiting. I have a brand new LT that just arrived and is getting the 3.01 update :P
  10. It was based on the original leak. zZounds.com had the Stomp XL listed and had an availability date of mid February, but in my experience with them and AMS they often put random dates in when they don't know when an item will be back in stock.
  11. I am eagerly awaiting this. After the non-NAMM live stream and nothing was announced I was going to go ahead and get the Stomp and an MC-6. Had them in their respective carts and then saw Tone Junkie's video and decided I could wait a couple more months :)

    HX Effects Advice

    Hi, The HX effects integrates with existing stomp boxes very easily. It is limited with only 2 loops but you can get really creative. I did that for quite a while and here's how I had everything set up. The time based effects that I owned and always kept in my amps FX loop were plugged into the physical cable chain heading to and from my amps FX loop. They were all MIDI capable so I used MIDI CC and PC messages sent by the HX in Snapshots to change parameters etc per patch. I kept my 3 drives, fuzz, and compressor in front of the HX just like they were going in front of an amp. The few odd pedals that I wasn't always sure where I wanted them were chained together and placed in the HX's other send/receive loop so I could put them anywhere, even route them into my amps FX loop if I wanted to. If you want to get REAL creative, you can always get a MIDI capable loop switcher like a Boss ES5 or ES8 and place them into the HX loop and use MIDI to control it all. Bottom line is there are always options. Just be aware when you are using either of the HX loops you need to be mindful of the levels and make sure all your ins/outs are set accordingly for Inst or Line. Best of luck!
  13. Hi, I have the G10S and I love it. I'll never go back to cables! I'm considering an Ibanez AZ guitar and they have an input jack that's recessed fairly deep. I don't know if the G10 transmitter will fit and was wondering what solutions you fine folks have used when encountering a situation like this. As always, thanks for the "input" - Pun intended :)
  14. I know it's a late reply but this question has been asked on just about every amp switching capable product's forum as well as the Blackstar forums and the answer is always crickets... I found this on a voodoo labs forum that someone got from Blackstar if it still helps anyone. You can still use an external device to mimic the 2 button FS by putting the amp in external switch mode. Here's what they had to say about the TRS connections: EXTERNAL SWITCHING MODE: This mode is intended for people who wish to control the same main features of the amp using an external switching device that connects via the TRS connection of the socket. To switch to External Switching Mode: simply press and hold the Clean Select and Clean Voice switches for 5 seconds. The green LEDs will then flash together to indicate the change of mode. The amplifier will retain this mode, even when switched off, until it is changed back to normal/footswitch mode. Once in External Switching Mode the following settings will apply when a suitable TRS connection is made: TIP -------- RING ------Channel ---- voice closed---- closed ----- clean ----- voice 1 closed ---- open ----- clean ----- voice 2 open ----- closed -----OD1 ----- voice 1 or 2 as selected open ----- open ----- OD2 ----- voice 1 or 2 as selected
  15. Hi, It's a hum not a hiss and it's only present when the OD's are in the loop. In front of the HX or amp they are fine. Swapped cables, PSU etc and it's still there. I put a gate block in the loop and that tames it, but it takes up an FX slot.
