    Stomp/Helix Q's

    I was messing around with the Stomp today and ran it into an Orange 15w amp, directly into its Return. I find adding an EQ after the PREAMP block helps shape the tone tremendously. I was able to bring most PREAMPs to life by tweaking the EQ. This find could change my mind into getting a Helix LT.

    Stomp/Helix Q's

    You are spot on with the relationship of a real amp's pre and power section. They were made and programmed for each other. I played with the Global Settings/Ins and Outs. The "In" sounded best at LINE and the "Out" sounded best and louder using "LINE". Not sure why. FRFR speakers are not an option for me as I play out allot at a particular club that has a 4x12 cab back line and no cabinets are allowed. And I rather not go through the house PA. Maybe a Kemper 600w head is what I should be looking at instead of the Helix?

    Stomp/Helix Q's

    Thanks for the reply, I tried using the Stomp through the amp's Return and is sounded horrible. Sounds much better using the 4 cables but that volume issue is a problem. Thanks for the tip on the 44 Mag, the only issue is that its only 44watts. I am looking to use the Helix LT live. I dont think 44w of SS will cut it.

    Stomp/Helix Q's

    Here is the deal, I picked a Stomp yesterday and ran it though a Marshall DSL 20w head 4 cable method. My goal in this situation is to still use my Marshall head tone but also add other presets/channels from the Stomp. I created an FX block and then a Preamp block and started messing around with the different Pre's. The first issue I had was volume level, as mostly every preamp is at low volume even with the Stomp volume at 12noon and the Preamp's channel and masters at 7 or 9. This will obviously be an issue playing live. When I used the full AMP selection instead of the Preamp, volume levels were better and some of the AMP sounded considerably better. Does that make any sense? In that scenario I am using the Marshall Poweramp, another Poweramp from the Stomp's Amp mode, and them obviously the Stomp Preamp. Does anyone have an idea on why the preamp volume is so low? And does anyone else with this method and finds the Amps sounds better then using just the Preamps? Also...if I may, I really want to return the Stomp and get the Helix LT as I really liked the tones I was getting. However I am an old time tube amp user who likes to use a real 2x12 or back line 4x12 cabinets. Besides running the 4 cable method, what other ways can I power that Helix LT so I can used a real cabinet?
  5. I just purchased the HX Effects. I am using the 4 cable method so I can but delays and reverbs in the amp's effects loop. Playing out of a Mesa mk5 35w head. While on the Crunch channel with moderate gain and low volume, no problems. When at moderate gain and stage volume, there is a small squeal coming out of the amp with, even with the guitar volume at 0. When I switch over to the higher gain channels, MK4 at high gain and stage volume, the squeal is out of control, and this is with the guitar volume on 0. Unfortunately I dont have a effects loop level on the amp. I tried messing with the Inst and Line settings on the HX but all that does is drop the volume down, I could do that on the amp. When I turn it back up while in line mode, the squeal returns. Any suggestions or does anyone else have this problem with any other amps in high gain/stage volume?
  6. Well the exchange did nothing, same problem with the card, will not format or save anything. Here is the fix, I ordered a new 1GB SanDisk brand card from Amazon, that card formatted and now saves. So...it was the card after all. Warning...stay away from Transcend 2GB cards, they do not work with this amp.
  7. I callled Line6 Support, the option was to return it to Guitar Center for a new one.
  8. I formatted FAT32 and FAT16...still not working. The card will not format from the amp either. No saves, nothing.
  9. Has the SD problem ever been solved after all these years? I just purchased a new Spider Jam. Three brand new 2GB SD cards standard. The amp will not format the card or save JAM or WAV to it. I tried formatting the card on a PC to FAT16, still will not save or format on the amp. I was shocked to see all the posts about this, but no solution. Is there one???
  10. I just purchased the Spider V 120 combo and I would like to use the LOOPER with a footswitch but rather not spend another $250 on the FBV3 as I will only want this switch to use with the looper, this switch would be overkill for me. Does the FBV Express MKii give me looper control with my foot?...or is the FBV3 the only way to use the looper via foot option? Thanks!
