  1. Please, could someone help me launching Helix native in Cakewalk so I can play through my scarlett solo? I see helix native plugin in cakewalk right window but I don't know how open it and play through. Thanks!

    The only other way to do it is with MIDI. You can emulate the EXP toe switch with CC#59.

    Hi phil_m I asked something related In an old post. How could know what CC# are assigned to helix floor switches, commands, parameters? There's somewhere a cc# map?

    Sorry for my off topic.

    About toe switch, any suggestions (did somebody find a simple mechanical way to push It easily?)

  3. Sorry for the (partially) off topic; I'd like to control effect parameters of GR55 via Helix control center BUT I don't know how (Now I can only change GR55 programs, but I'm not able to go inside a GR55 patch to assign other functions to helix switches or exp pedals). I read about CC and I figure that I should associate a control to a CC number in GR55, but I can't do it without losing the right path. So, please help me (I hope that SY 300 and GR55 midi controlling is not such a different stuff). Thanks!

  4. I'd like to express my full satisfaction for the new Ventoux! I find it very versatile, so I  got immediately very round cleans and beefy and harmonically rich saturated tones. I pair it with a matchless g12h30 r121 IR (but I'll accept more correct suggestions about what kind of IR/Cab could be more suitable, although I suppose that this all-round amp can work fine with too many cabs).

    I express my sincere gratitude to Ben Adrian and to the L6 staff for this new awesome improvement.

  5. I opened my helix this afternoon and... horror show! In my main preset folder, named telecaster, all it was deleted as in screenshot one. I tried to restore from backup (I saved it three days ago) but it was impossible, as showed in screenhot 2. But backup file is there (screenshot 3). Any hopes to fix it? Please!!!! Other preset folders are ok.

     Maybe I wasn't clear enough.



    Maybe sarchasm is such a strong temptation here, too hard to hold off it!

    Thanks to datacommando, who shared with the community an interesting delay trick I asked for in an old, misunderstood or not enough clear post.

    Seriously, if expert users are bored with common people interested, for a little piece of their leisure time, in playing with an electronic toy (as helix for someone may be), please be patient. It will be appreciated. 

  7. Hi, does anyone here use Helix in conjunction with gr55? I'd like to receive suggestions about the most practical and functional ways to connect each other, how can I do the correct and logical routings. I'll be grateful to everybody who could give me suggestions or maybe even templates in order to organize patches: I'd like to connect my guitar to  helix and gr55 and have the opportunity to go through helix to speakers, being able to insert or bypass gr55 (it's possible simply activating a send return block? Where in the chain block? It's the only way or there are other interesting ways... I imagine so). Please be generous and kind. I apologise because of my bad english.

    Well we all start somewhere and progress from there - here’s two or three that I had almost forgotten about that you can disassemble and chop around for fun.




    You should read the notes on each preset


    Have fun.


    I'll check 'em out. And thanks for the suggestion in the notes... I'm curious about Bill Nelson...

    maybe you already did go to CustomTone as it seems you have uploaded there just today - strange - it’s jazz ambient, doom metal and rock, not shoegaze?

    Eheh... That's the reason why I asked for shoegaze tricks :). I used delays in Jazz ambient patch... but it's just what I can create with my actual and poor skills.

    It all seems very quiet in here - maybe everyone is off somewhere polishing their shoes.


    Anyhow, if you had cast your gaze over on CustomTone and put “shoegaze” in the Search option it would have returned this result.

    It’s somewhere to start


    Hope this helps/makes sense.



     Thank you Datacommando. I'll try some patches out there, although my intention was learning new (for me and other conventional players like me) tricks on delays, assigning various parameters to switches or pedals for being able to modify on the fly. Maybe someone will share some tips.

    Your taking this way too seriously... everybody's just goofing around. Relax, take a deep breath, maybe gaze at some shoes. Everything will be fine...;)

     You're right... I slow down and start gazing :)

  12. Hi everbody, I wish I could gather here any suggestion on how to use various delay models (each one with it's own special features) assigning parameters (time, feedback, mix, headroom and many others) to switches (latching or momentary) or EXP pedals in order to create shoegaze madness textures, special effects or inspiring tricks. I'm sure many of you can effortlessly give precious tips and suggestions, sharing new toys here in delay playground.

  13. And I did my factory reset too... The offset patches start in Factory 2 list after Rhythm Sandman 08D (seems like Metallica's black album sound... or it tries to do its best, so it's ok) then09A glengarry lead ( i don't know how it should sound), then 09B parallel space (delay and reverbs... probably it's ok) BUT 09C 'Merican nights STARTS sounding as 09D 4D Love of Steve should.

    In my humble opinion, this issue couldn't depend from software... maybe there is an error in the factory list itself after 3.01 upgrade

  14. Well, allmost all patches from factory 1 list seem to me ok (many are named according to the amp they sample... I checked and they're ok). But in factory 2 list, things, at some point, became confused. And it becames clear to me from the above mentioned Vai preset (it doesn't sound at all like for the love of God, but patch after does). Then, patches names are enigmatic, we know... So i can't be more accurate. Another rockabilly patch (Stray cats or grease cats) shows the same problem. I don't think all parthes are offset, but they're probably offset from one starting into factory 2 list. 

    I don't use factory preset, but i recently noticed this issue, although I didn't wrote about it. I was only trying to give one hand to vanderbilly. Vanderbilly said above he did several times a factory reset. So, if this issue can't be fixed with a factory reset, why do you start giving me this suggestion?
