  1. Thanks @jerseyboy
  2. Hi all. I have Qs about using an HX Stomp with an acoustic guitar without a pickup. This would be my 1st guitar without a pickup, and I've never mic'd a guitar before, so it is all new to me. 1) Could I simply use a microphone placed in front of the guitar and plug the mic into the HX Stomp? 2) So I need something in between the mic and the Stomp? 3) If I were to add a passive pickup to the guitar, would I be able to use the HX Stomp directly from thew guitar without anything in between? Thanks in advance.

    Helix as Interface for Rocksmith

    I have given up (again). I even tried installing the Line 6 driver, but to no avail. This was a nice-to-have, not needed. And I've wasted way too much time on it!

    Helix as Interface for Rocksmith

    In re-researching this, I stumbled upon a Reddit post that shows getting everything working using a patch with a deactivated block, but with the output set higher to help with note detection. That being said, I still cannot get it working! Using the Aggregate Device trick yields static (with all different audio engine settings inside Rocksmith). And trying to get Helix recognized as a microphone input inside Rocksmith has been impossible for me (getting zero signal on the Rocksmith meter, even though I do show signal in the MacOS sound settings app). Here's the Reddit link and the screenshot someone posted:

    Helix as Interface for Rocksmith

    Thanks, Kilrahi. I no longer have the cable...and was able to do this with the Focusrite. So it is more a matter of me wanting to do it than needing to do it!

    Helix as Interface for Rocksmith

    I had given up on this until I saw Kilrahi's recent post. I've tried again over the weekend, but still no success. The main question I have right now for Kilrahi and Frankg111 is are you using a Rocksmith real tone cable? Or are you only using the Helix to interface between your guitar and computer? As mentioned in my initial post, I was able to get Rocksmith working perfectly with a Focusrite Scarlet 2i2 (and no Rocksmith real tone cable). But cannot with just the Helix.
  7. It happened to me again last night. But I have not been able to determine the sequence that causes it. I do know that it occurred when switching presets, but I don't know other details. For instance, was it because I switched to a specific preset? The 1 thing that did occur to me is that the present I switched to used an IR and not a stock cab. I power cycled the LT and it was fine once rebooted. I will continue to watch for it, but it is definitely a thing and not my imagination.
  8. If it happens again, I will try to get more details (patch I made vs. one that I edited, what happens when switching to a different patch, power off/on, etc.).
  9. Well, it in some ways makes me feel better. I was so confused initially when seeing it happen, then assumed it was a purposeful change between 2.7 and 2.71. Although, for the life of me I could not come to grips as to why they would make such a change to essentially make the 6 button looper function similarly to the 1 button looper. Then it suddenly went back to normal behavior so I wrote it off as if I was "seeing things"!
  10. Well I don't know what happened to give me the differing behaviors...whether it was my error or not! But my 6 button looper blocks are now working as they always have. I had updated from 2.7 to 2.71, which is what I attributed the issue to. Very mysterious!
  11. I am (embarrassingly) going to say this was user error. I was away for the past week, but just used my Helix and the looper is working as it had in the past. I think maybe I had too much wine on Christmas when trying it last!
  12. I am away, so not in front of my Helix, so cannot be 100% sure this is accurate. But yes, the loop still plays when I navigate over to stomp more and/or change to a different preset. However, when I go back to the 6 button looper, the record button is not "ready" for an additional overdub. And if you click it, it starts a brand new recording, erasing your old one. The only thing I've found to do is to click the play/stop button, then do an overdub, but it is not as smooth a transition. You used to be able to just click the overdub again without "risking" your existing loop.
  13. In all seriousness...what would be the benefit of the new functionality? As I mentioned before, it seemingly negates the advantage of having separate stop and overdub buttons.
  14. UUGH! So was this an "upgrade" from 2.7 to 2.71? I assume that's the case as I just updated to 2.71. Doesn't this negate the main benefit of the 6 button looper (as compared to the 1 button model)? Let's hope it is a mistake/oversight.
  15. I updated to 2.71 the other day, and I THINK that the 6 button looper buttons have been modified. They don't react as in the past (unless I've been sipping too much egg nog these past few days). Now, after recording a loop then going over to stomp mode, when you return to the looper the overdub button is no longer ready to accept an overdub. If you step on it, it starts recording a new loop and you lose your old one. In the past I would be able to record a loop, change presets, use stomps to change delays/reverbs/overdrive/etc, and then go back to the looper to add a new layer. What I am finding now is that I have to hit the stop/play button 1st. Anyone else seeing this???
