  1. Posted on Ideascale, here's the link if you like the idea:
  2. Tech support answered this is the expected behavior and not a bug, and suggested to post on Ideascale as a feature request. Will do when my Ideascale account request gets approved.
  3. Thanks for trying this! I'll ask Tech support, if it's a bug at least they know.
  4. That’s what I also feared. I am only using the multi output, but maybe the parameters do not carry over properly between LT and stomp because the output blocks are not identical. Sure, I could use a gain block and that’s exactly what I like to do on the LT, but I thought I’d save a block on the Stomp by managing volume with the output block…
  5. Yes, using HXedit. Will also try with Native, thanks!
  6. Hi there, I just got a Stomp, great little thing! I have a question regarding preset import. I have prepared a few presets for the Stomp on my Helix LT, using only path 1. These presets can be imported into the Stomp and everything works well, except that the per-snapshot values of the level parameter in the output block are lost (whereas all snapshot assigned parameters of all other blocks are correctly retained for the first 3 snapshots); indeed the output level parameter is not assigned to snapshots any more, and the parameter value is that of the first snapshot. Any idea why this happens and maybe can be avoided? Thanks!
  7. Very good point! I guess it was the relative lack of high end that caused me to move on from them — I need those highs to cut through. Whereas with other IRs I always gravitate towards the most mid heavy mics or mixes. The other thing is that IRs from a different producer need different amp eq and low/high cuts. This is why I like to settle with one producer even though many of them would work for me.
  8. I went from Michael Britt's to Ownhammer Revolution Debut Bundle to York Audio IRs. Each of them are good in their own right, but do have their own sound signature. For me, buying an IR pack is like hiring a producer and getting their take on a cab. They don't always sound the same because of differences in the setup, power amps, mic position, ... To me Britt's are very mid-heavy and a bit dark -- not bad at all. Ownhammer tend to be fat/warm, with a lot of lows and low mids (not always a good thing). York Audio are brighter (not too much) and have less emphasis in the lows and low mids; more balanced overall. I am currently using York Audio because I find it fits better in a dense mix with 2 guitars + keys. With only one guitar I also like Ownhammer IRs. YMMV. Ah, and 3sigma acoustic IRs for acoustic and piezo.
  9. You may want to make sure the pedal movement is smooth enough -- the degree of tightness can be adjusted. Other than that you should be fine.
  10. Very good tips, thanks! I’ll try them both. What a crazy flexible thing the Helix is...
  11. Hi there, I am playing a song where I have to do a very short lead several times during the song, quickly switching from rhythm to lead tone and back. It's so short that pushing a footswitch first to change to the lead tone and then again to switch back would be inconvenient, so I am trying to use a momentary switch. My setup is based on the stomp/snap mode. I am mostly using snapshots which I select using the bottom row of footswitches, and stomps on the top row for things I set up before the song begins and never touch while playing. I have tried to use a stomp switch in momentary mode for this lead tone. It works, but it is very inconvenient to have this switch in the top row because several times it happened to me to hit also another footswitch at the same time, entering a mode where all footswitches are lighted up and I can only get out pressing the tap button. Anyway, I prefer to keep the snap switches in the bottom row because all my other patches use snapshots. So my question is: is there a way to enable a snapshot in momentary mode, such that when I release the footswitch it gets back to another snapshot? I know this was not possible before the overhaul of command center. I admit I never properly learned to use the new features in command center, so if you can tell me if it's possible to do it and give me a pointer, that would be great. Cheers!
  12. I'd generally agree with this. If the acoustic sim is linear (i.e., an EQ), the order won't make any difference in the outcome.
  13. Same as I do, I often end up here or on TGP. One thing though, is that an answer in an old thread might be not relevant any more due to the new firmware developments.
  14. Sure, no problem. Have a look at the attached patch, snapshot1 (STRUMMING) (it should be the default one if I have not made any mistake while saving). The IR that I use with this is Taylor 612 piezo 1a. I am also attaching a short audio file to give you an idea of how it sounds like for me. It is the raw track with no postprocessing recorded in Garageband. Important: while recording this I kept the "high" eq slider on the guitar preamp relatively high -- that's where most of the highs are coming from; mids and lows are neutral on the preamp. This tone has some chorus, reverb and delay, and I am going for a slightly scooped sound to fit in an acoustic/electric song. YMMV. acoustic.hlx acoustic.mp3
  15. I have a Godin LGXT with Piezo and I have no trouble getting a very good sound with 3sigma acoustic IRs. My patch has the piezo IR as first thing, followed by the studio pre, compressor, and parametric eq. In the eq I attenuate the low mids a bit and boost the highs to make the tone a bit more chimey. Then add chorus and/or delay and/or reverb to taste. It works well for me.
