  1. I am good with just using my Boss TU-3. Helix will be used as a backup. No issues here. I play out every weekend, so I can't rely on the Helix tuner. No worries. Thank you all for the input. 

  2. Is it possible the nut is off (cut to wrong height) for that string?

    The g string slot on the nut of my Tokai is a little high; When the string is in tune, if I fret it at the fret it at the second fret, it's sharp.  I need to have it filed a bit.

    I totally get that, but why would it only do that on the Helix tuner, and NOT my Boss TU-3. Its a brand new guitar btw. Fender Deluxe Tele. 

  3. The weird thing mine is doing is on the first string (High E) , its about 3 cents off, and even when not playing, it moves around. All the other strings seem to work fine. Both tuners set to 440hz. I will try to post a video soon. I am not sure what is going on. I should also add that I am on the latest firmware of 2.3. 


  4. You want to set the input for the TUNER to guitar, too.


    It doesn’t work for everyone. It works fine for me. As with all tuners, neck pickup, tone rolled off, tune to the attack of the note as much as possible,fresh strings matter...

    I have both set for Guitar. Have you checked yours, side by side with another Tuner? 

  5. (See manual p.20:) Only choose the input block you actually really use (not the 'Multi' position).

    This makes tuning more 'stable' ;)

    I am past that. My blocks are pretty simple. I am using Snaps, so I I generally am I only using one chain, and the Input is set to Guitar. It just does not work, like the above posted, it seems to sensitive. 


    Solution, I am just gonna keep my TU-3 plugged in. lol

  6. Does anyone else experience lack of accuracy with the Helix on board tuner? I cant get a solid guitar tune with the Helix tuner at all. Below is a process of how I have checked them. 

    On the helix, I have the tuner set to standard 440 pitch, and on my Boss TU-3 I have the same settings. The TU-3 accurately tunes my guitars, but the Helix is off by about -3cents on the some of the higher strings. There is no offsets, and the tuner is set to Guitar. 

    Any ideas? Is this a known issue?

  7. I am new to this forum, but I have had my Helix LT for a few months now. I play 2-3 shows a week, and I have been using my Orange Head and a Carvin 2x12 cabinet for my main setup. 

    I am trying to consolidate down a bit, and I was looking in the Radial JDX Direct Drive, so I can get a similar sound and then just going direct to the main mixer for FOH. 

    Does anyone have any experience with this or a similar setup?

    My current setup is as follows:

    Helix  1/4 Out > Orange Head FX Return 
    Helix Guitar IN > Guitar
    I then use a MIC for the 2x12 cab.
