  1. Thats a great idea and would be useful. I think it would require a re-write of code for HX Edit and/or Stomp ... not a trivial task.
  2. If you are obsessed with renaming HX Stomp Snapshots so they actually mean something .... or ... you're determined to outwit whoever decided this wasn't important for HX Stomp users, but for Helix Floor users - "yes, we'll let you rename snapshots" ... or .... After a "bit" of trial & error (.hlx file scheme is a bit wonky!), I've deciphered how to do this ... it's easy (ish) To help you out, I've attached an "rtf" format file as an example. To check out the rtf file you'll need a text editor that supports this common format. It's rtf format so I could HIGHLIGHT AND BOLD IN RED where the snapshot names are, along with the preset name that will be displayed in HX Edit on the Stomp. Also attached is the .hlx file with renamed snapshots if you want to import it into HX Edit for reference. You will have to export each preset you want to rename the snapshots for You will have to use a basic text editor to edit each .hlx file There are restrictions on how many characters in a snapshot and preset name, the attached sample file contains the max number of characters that will be displayed in HX Edit or on the Stomp Order of snapshots in the .hlx file DOES NOT match order of snapshots as seen in HX Edit i.e. "Snapshot 2" in HX Edit is not second snapshot you'll come across in the .hlx file How To: Open the .hlx file in your text editor Find/replace the snapshot names and/or the preset name, using the attached files as a guide Save file, keeping .hlx extension Import .hlx file into HX Edit Done!

  3. Hi Bob, Thanks for the response and some food for thought. I wasn't proposing "disabling" the tweeters, but physically switching them to the 1/4 " outs ONLY when FRFR speakers are connected ... to ensure amp circuit for tweeters had a load at all times to avoid damage (if they are indeed on their own amp circuit, which is likely now that you mention it). I assumed high frequencies were also being sent out the 1/4" jacks, but I think you are correct in that Line 6 assumes you are connecting a SPEAKER cab with poor high frequency response, hence the amp head tweeters. Maybe I'll get in touch with Line 6 tech support to see if I can get some specifics about what frequencies are sent out to external speakers ... but I think you are correct. Provided the tweeter circuits always have the minimum required load on them, either amp head speakers or external, I can't see why the 240HC would care either way. So I'm inclined to do the modification. As long as one ensures tweeters always have a load connected to them BEFORE powering on the amp, all should be good! Some sort of simple default "safe mode" detection/switching relay circuit for the tweets would take the "oh sh#% I forgot to ..." factor out of the equation :-) A good rainy day project. Ken
  4. Bob says ... "cause Yamaha CBR12's are passive speakers ... and I don't own a powered PA system. So when jamming at home and I need some dB's (or gig with no PA system) the 240HC works fine paired to the CBR12's. Hence Bob's request for info on the modification. If connecting to a PA/front of house system, then of course I would run Helix directly to them" Cheers Mate
  5. Hello Folks, I would like to connect my new Helix floor unit, via Aux In, to my V240HC ... then connect V240HC to an external set of Full Range-Flat Response monitors (via 1/4'" jacks) and need to disable ALL internal speakers in the 240HC when doing so ... I don't need, nor want, the tweeters active in the V240HC in this case ... the FRFR monitors handle high frequencies very nicely. It is my understanding that when external speakers are connected the V240HC tweeters remain active, regardless of Cab Simulation switch setting on back of the amp? Warranty issues aside ... would there be a problem (electrically with the V240HC) adding a physical switch that routes the internal tweeters to the 1/4 output jacks when I have FRFR speakers attached to the same jacks? It would seem that as long as impedance of the FRFR speakers are compatible, the V240HC should be happy ... or not?? I would have to figure whether to connect the tweeters in parallel or series to ensure the resultant impedance is acceptable. Seems simple enough ... hence probably not!! Thanks!
