    Full Helix or LT...?

    Yeah, I have a FRFR speaker and have been using that for most of my edits, have got decent headphones too for initial sketches when I can't make noise! I like the idea of snapshots, and could see myself using it later, but turning blocks on and off is working for me at present. With the amount of blocks you can have in a preset the LT is definitely enough for me too. Just getting my head around IR's, I didn't really use cab settings on my XTL so dipping my toe in. I have downloaded a few free ones (Gods cab, Red wire, Allure) but there are so many it's hard to know where to start! I've always found Line 6 gains and OD's a bit too close somehow, and they did tame them a bit? Will keep tinkering. I have a recording on Sunday so will be test driving properly then!

    Helix backpack

    That's fine, I'm more concerned about when it's in. Time to buy I think..

    Helix backpack

    That's what I was thinking! Been to enough gigs where you can't park nearby and I think one less trip would be nice!

    Helix backpack

    Yes, the flight case was built for my XTL, but it means two trips into a venue which when parking is a problem is a pain. I like the idea of the backpack to make get ins quicker..

    Helix backpack

    Just bought an LT. I have a flight case that it will first in, but am tempted by the backpack. Any pros / cons to it? I would worry a little about stuff in the pockets weighing down on it, and also if it stays upright when put down?

    Full Helix or LT...?

    Well if anyone's interested (and you're probably not..!) I'm glad I upgraded. editing is so easy and the sounds are so much better than my XTL! Still a bit confused by snapshots and IR's but will dig in again tomorrow!

    LT arriving tomorrow! Going to have an evening of setup I think!

    Full Helix or LT...?

    Money is always a concern unfortunately... I think I'm going to go LT. Acoustic into the return on it's own path will do the job and while I liked the scribble strips on the floor, I think once I get used to having them on the screen instead It'll work out fine!

    So I could have an acoustic in a return and send it to a designated acoustic patch? I'm happy to go for the full floor, but think the LT can do as much as I need.. Dilemma!

    Full Helix or LT...?

    I know this has been discussed many times, but... Tried a helix today in a local store, absolutely amazing. It's quite an upgrade from my XT live sonically, but besides that I found the intuitive way it makes editing sounds easier a revelation! So, my questions are: 1) if I go for the LT instead (which they didn't have to demo.) is editing on the fly harder, or basically the same? 2) LT only has one input? I could see myself wanting to have two guitars plugged in maybe with different signal paths, (maybe an acoustic for example?) is this possible with the LT and if so how!

    upgrade advice needed!

    I know what you mean. On the other hand I gigged with my XTL last night and most of the patches sounded great actually, the Helix is so expensive...

    This is one of the problems with modern life... Constantly chasing the next thing and in competition with 'the newest sound!' The XLT has done it's job for me, but I definitely need an upgrade. Looking at 500's on eBay I may go for one of those, but will also try out a Helix in a local shop to see if the hefty pice tag warrants it!

    That makes a lot of sense, thank you!

    Cool! There are so many POD vs Helix it's hard to know where to begin if you know what I mean. I think the XTL needs tp be replaced though for sure!

    upgrade advice needed!

    Hi all, I have a XT live which I'm (generally!) happy with, but looking to upgrade. The main problem I have with the XTL is the dirty sounds and amp simulators, I'm not as happy with what I hear as I am with all the mods delays etc. I'm using a FRFR speaker, wondering if upgrading to the 500 (or maybe helix?) is going to give me a vast improvement in these sounds? I mean I obviously know the answer is yes, but can any anyone give me more details? Cheers!
