  1. Have you connected the H9 to the HX using MIDI cables (the FX loop is irrelevant when it comes to actual MIDI control - that's just the audio route. I have my H9's AFTER the HX to keep their stereo goodness intact). Have you set up the H9 to be on a specific channel and are you sending on the correct channel from the HX to the H9? How have you set up the PC/CC messages you want to send in the HX preset? It's very do-able - I have two H9's and EVERY patch on my HX selects a different patch on the H9's. Apologies if any of the above was a bit obvious to you - if we know what you've tried at the moment and how far along the MIDI discovery path you are , we can help you from there. David.

    Can't believe you've quoted God in an effort to close this thread... I quite fancy a nihilist block in the could just briefly mute everything before engaging with our brain waves to shape our own tone with regard to only our truth.
  3. I have my Drop in an FX loop so it's switchable in my presets. Noisy little bugger though.

    This needs to be settled on a football pitch.

    Looks like another cracking update; I'd say I can't wait, but given the rancour around release dates last time, I'll politely say I CAN wait and enjoy it when it arrives. I do find it slightly odd that TGP gets more news than the official Line 6 forum though.
  6. I do so love stuff like this. I've got a problem with my HX. I raised a ticket on Wednesday last week. It's going into the service centre this week via my lovely and helpful local dealer (Yay for Andertons!). It'll come back fixed in a week or two. All achieved without criticising anyone or getting agitated with how unfair life is. Why is this process so hard for so many people? Stuff goes wrong - always has (I've seen the cave painting from Vlad the Carpenter when his flint snapped one day after purchase back in 8660 BC. Boy was he triggered) and it always will. Line 6 always seems to me to be pretty good amongst their peers in dealing with any issues that may arise - normally with good grace and good humour. But you have to let them know about it - otherwise they really can't help you. I believe psychic bug reporting isn't due until v4.02. I've had far worse experiences with far more expensive items (try owning a Land Rover...)
  7. Here's an odd one... After not having touched the unit for programming in a very long time, I thought I'd check out the new snapshot reselect feature as it could be quite useful to me. As HX edit (rather inexplicably) has no access to global preferences on the unit, I leaned over and pressed the Home button. Nothing. Then the Hamburger. Then turns out all my buttons on the top panel are dead except rotary dials 1 and 2 and the left and right arrows! I'm pretty sure this is nothing to do with 2.8 which seemed to go nice and smoothly for me (as I say - it was months ago that I last pressed anything other than a stomp button with my foot). I've raised a ticket of course - just interested to see if anyone had seen anything similar before, or has any suggestions of things to try, whilst I wait for an L6 response? David.
  8. asking if it will have a coffee machine added?
  9. We're all missing a biggie that was snuck in here... 2.9!!! TWO POINT NINE!!!!! When's it coming? What's in it? I need it this very second. My HX is almost unusable now I know there's a 2.9 coming... :)
  10. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gave up on the CB Brothers... :)
  11. I'm not as attentive to cabling as most :) After many iterations, I'm pretty settled now...I certainly don't want to go through the pain of reprogramming again. The 2 H9's run between the Stereo outs of the HX and the AA6 and the HX is the heart of the system. I use the AA purely as an Amp Sim and HX Blocks can run before the AA6 Amp or between the AA6 and the Cab (ie - what would be a 7CM with a "proper" amp) - before it goes out to the 2 H9's. The Roland controls final volume and the Mission is into the HX and con control HX and/or the H9's - I've got the odd preset where it controls all three at once :) Having said it's settled, I have one fx loop spare in the HX and it's always just sitting there, winking at me...I've no idea what will go in there, but something will one day.
  12. Yip - otherwise the signal won't actually go out.
  13. Use a single send/return block. And order is personal preference - the beauty of 4cm here is it's so easy to move stuff around. The order you've given is the "traditional" approach so a good starting point.
  14. Just add an AA to it! That's what I've got :) HX for effects, AA for amps. Heaven.
  15. When I first moved away from using/micing my amp, I still had my Elektron Analog Drive and also my H9 on the board. I soon realised that between the HX and AA6, I had everything I needed. I use the HX as my master, using MIDI to change presets on the AA6. The EV5 controls a final volume block on the AA with the Mission attached to the HX. HX Presets are changed from an iPad which calls up the correct patch when I select the song; the HX is normally in snapshot mode. The whole thing is cabled up 4CM meaning I can place HX effects before and after the Amp sections in the AA and still come out of the HX into the Cab section of the AA as the final output into the desk. The best part is I think I've only really scratched the surface of what these 2 can do together. David.
