  1. I have a drum machine that can be slaved by the hx stomp Tempo , I already can control the tempo on the drum machine by tapping on the STOMP , I wonder if there is anyhow I can control the tempo on the HX stomp By using the expression pedal ? If I were to control the tempo on the Stomp with the expression the drum machine will follow , I also have a midi controller with expression , but so far what I can see I can not control the tempo with midi expression , But I maybe wrong , it is my first day with the STOMP . Any ideas ?
  2. Can I control the tempo with the EXP pedal 1 on the helix?
  3. ya but how i do the connection ? from the coax or xlr to the optical that the APOLLO requires ?
  4. my goal here is going from the helix to a TOSlink digital cable , to go to the imput of my APOLLO twin interface , or i am going to need a device in between if i decide to used the digital output ?
  5. what is the diference of S/PDIF and the line out ? I assume S/PDIF is digital , but isent the XLR digital also ? what is the diference ?
  6. That is what is amazing with the helix , the ability to explore all the options , I found the frfr to be more quieter , but the tube amp to sound more natural , here goes a suggestion , if you want to use more the possibilities of the helix , get some frfr but keep your amp , and than you use stereo effects on the frfr , and your tube dry and clean on the middle wet dry wet, , or you can experiment dry wet dry settings , or use the delais to bounce from left to right , and have the main amp distorted , just use the frfr to bring dimension to your sound . I need one more frfr , but is were I am moving towards
  7. What is the pros and cons of using a the helix out into a interface as opposite , the use of the interface over native plugin?
  8. thanks Steve , can I also do this on the helix edit on the computer ? all I see is when I click on the Input/Variax than I go to the Variax settings I only have Per Preset and Global Settings , I don't have P/Snapshot , am I missing something here ? sorry if I am missing the point , is my 3rd day wit the Variax , for the record is a JTV69 , last version . thanks for the help
  9. when I create a preset , on the SNAPSHOT 1 - let suppose a clean electric on the Variax , then I create a acoustic preset on SNAPSHOT 2 using the Variax - let suppose acoustic model on the Variax . when I switch SNAPSHOT from 1 to 2 should the SNAPSHOT control the Variax , or the knob on the Variax will always be what's determines the guitar model ?
  10. man you get embrace it , do like me buy a keyboard 63 in ATA case , gut it , and build a 2 tier pealboalboard inside , go big or go home , lol plus I got two wheels to haul my pedalboard .
  11. guys , I could use a loop out to plug the polytune to the line , but I don't want waste any loops, and I love the tc electronic polytune , because I can leave it on all the Time , before I was using it in front before the input , but I bought a Variax now ,and I am wondering can I use the S/PDIF IN/OUT, RCA to a mono I assume that out is a clean signal , I am Not sure of the impedance compatibility , if the S/PDIF OUT send a clean signal , I could use a RCA out to Mono and connect the POlytune an leave it on
  12. go used , and cheap , I just got on the mail 3 days ago , a used 650 from GC, but it is giving me a quite a work to setup the way I like , I replaced the neck , but that is on me , I have big hands , so I had a wider neck and the installation was smooth , I had to drill to holes on my neck , but no problem there , it came without the arm , and missing a knob , but 25 bucks on line and I was good to go , I like to modify stuff to my liking , so if I had bought it new I would be hesitating to modify , sense is used , I don't mind do whatever it takes to make personal to fit my needs , I am not so crazy about the bridge , the way the strings hook behind the saddle , I can't get it to stay in tune , I am wandering if the strings move every time I use the tremolo bar , still get to work on it , . I must say if I bought new I would send back , but because I paid have of the price I am even considering a more exciting paint job on it lol.
  13. How do I know if I am clipping or just getting too much signal on the imput of the helix and should turn the guitar pad on ?
  14. hummmm, I just found out that I can use the cursors on keyboard , oppss , rookie mistake
  15. I don't want sound lazy , but there is any midi controller with knobs that will move the parameters on Helix Edit , or Native plugin, you know like placing the cursor the top of gain , Treble, volume and such , then turn a knob instead the default , clicking up or down ? would make life easier :)
  16. thank you guys, I am ordering one soon ,
  17. If i notice any coloration on the sound, was mostly good coloration, because you can boost, or dim your line output as you desire , but no muffled sound like the cheap modelers do , that being said , i get some 60 cycle hum , especially if I crank the gain of the tube amp a little more than 10 o clock , but that appears to be the result of matching the analog and digital unit , they never went very well together , I tried some inline hum canceling box , but no lucky there, it is more annoying when I use two tube amp in a stereo configuration , I still working on it , for now, I keep very clean pre-amp, and I use the master volume on the amp, that helps with the noise , that being said the ability to arrange the pedals anyway I like, and the variety available, surpass the drawbacks by thousand a mile , i even compare some of analogs with the compatible digital pedals , i could not hear any difference
  18. I found this question on the net already but I haven't found any detailed answer, I know about the mission expression, but, the dual output on the BOSS, I assume could operate EXP2 AND EXP3 on one pedal simultaneously? Plus I like the smaller footprint on the BOSS, I assume that it will also have a wider throwback than the Mission, that looks much like a crybaby. any recommendation, I am just speculating, for now, thanks
  19. I have the helix on a not so large room, with 2 tube amp on clean , in stereo, I am going from the helix to the amp from the left and right instrument cable output on the helix , NOT the 4 cables Method, and I have this electrical HUMM, that is quite common when you hook two tube amps, with a digital moduler in between, is not so loud , but for prolonged playing time, it builds up on the ear becoming very annoying . so far I tried the ground lift on the back and doesn't help, maybe anyone know a trick or a sort of buffer or a magic pedal that isolates the amps from the electrical current that is creating the noise?
  20. No, I don't want both at the same time,, or volume or wah, but now it is switching between on and off for the wah and for the volume instead work the volume or wah is supposed to work, I don't know I am lost,
  21. I am trying to set up a chain starting with volume pedal - assigned to EXP1 and a wah pedal assigned on EXO2 I want the volume pedal EXP1 to be ON all the time, when I TOE IN to switch to EXP2, I want the volume to remain on, and the wah to come ON as well the WAH functionality when on the EXP2. Right now when i toe IN the EXP1 goes to EXP 2 , but it turns the volume OFF. may be an overkill come to a forum for this, but I am just bouncing some ideas
  22. Ok , when I am just sitting , and Just making some noise I love to have , my beatbuddy , a looper and my guitar , but because I like to have the helix on the table , to tweak tones , I wish to use a foot switch for looper control I have a boss fs-5 foot switch , the one that Is dual switch ,momentary or toggle , I wish to operate the looper with the foot wile having the helix on the desk , or at list push record while playing , is that possible ? Another question is on the back of the helix have two exp inputs , the EXP2 and EXP3 are they TRS or TS only ? Sorry if the question if is too amateurish , but I will get there , I am a slow learner :) thanks for any help

    Helix Vs Native

    All things being equal , OutPut Volume , Panning , so on , does patches created on Native sounds the same on Helix floor unit?
  24. Can I Use a external ON/OFF switch to power the helix if I leave the onboard switch permanently ON?
  25. I assume the Variax modeling pickup is a piezo style on the bridge like a midi guitar right ? that being said , is there any of Variax models thats comes with a vintage string spread at the bridge(2/732) or the widest 2 1/4 ? if there is which one ?
