  1. Line6 G30 (and up) are all great options for you. I've got the 30, and if I ever have to replace it, I'll probably go with the 50 just for the sturdier casing on the transmitter. No issues.
  2. I've had this happen before when doing lots of copy/ pasting of presets, and it seems to be caused by a corrupted preset. I've always had to do a factory reset and reload my last backup. That's why I backup every time I hook it to the computer!
  3. With the HX effect I probably would use a DI box, just so you are running XLR cables and not regular instrument cables.
  4. LT would probably be overkill for your needs, but I would highly recommend it. You could probably get by with a stomp for what you are talking about, but the LT is awesome.
  5. You wouldn't regret the LT. good stuff.
  6. a pair of regular instrument cables would work as well. I mainly got the "dual" cable that I recommended to you b/c it's less of a mess and easier to keep them together. As far as recording goes, you may get better results just using the Helix itself as your interface (through the USB). Works really well honestly.
  7. b/c... every venue has entirely separate PA systems for the bassist and the vocalists. They never run through the same PA... ever... lol
  8. I've seen some effects on customtone that have a "freeze" effect in them, and it seems to work OK, but the best way (in my opinion) would be to throw the EHX freeze pedal into one of your efx loops and put it at the end of the chain.
  9. do you think you would ever be in a situation when you would want to go direct with no amp? if so, and you have the budget for it, then I would say get the Helix (or the LT). If you will ONLY ever use the Helix for effects, then the HX is probably all you would need. I had the HX, and ended up selling it to pay towards the LT.
  10. What I actually did was buy a "dual" instrument (TS) cable (something like this) and go straight from the left and right outputs of the helix into the left and right inputs of the Speaker(s). Works great.
  11. the biggest difference in your situation I would say is the full Floor has a Mic input. If you don't need to be able to do vocals through your Helix, then the LT is probably all (if not more) than you'll need. I've got the LT, and don't regret it at all.
  12. I like to run the Mic Preamp on my acoustic presets to give me a little bit of options for some "amp" effect, then whatever effects.
  13. corrupted preset. do a factory reset (after you export your presets/ setlists) then you can import in setlists/ presets and hopefully figure out which one is the corrupted one.
  14. Short answer is this. Lets say they stop all updates and such for the Helix today and announce the next Line6 modeler (not likely considering they just did a major overhaul of the firmware to make future updates easier and such). You would then have a great sounding, easy to use, versatile piece of gear that you could use in a multitude of ways. So, if you like the Helix, go ahead and buy it.
