  1. Here is my setup and situation. Active bass - Helix LT - PC. Helix is connecto to PC via USB and I monitor from the headphone out of the Helix. When streaming audio from scorces like Youtube, Spotify, and the Moises app the music seems to be effected by the patch selected. Is there a way to allow the music to stream without being effected by the patch I choose? Does this make sence? CEC
  2. My live setup: Bass, Helix LT, Ampeg SVT. Please forgive me if I use the wrong verbiage or terminology. I am experimenting with running 2 signal paths. Path 1 uses compression, EQ, light distortion, and reverb (routed to the XLR output). Path 2 uses the same compression and EQ setting but without the distortion and reverb (routed to the 1/4 in output). Path 1 goes to the FOH and path 2 goes to my amp. How do I set the output levels and the master volume on the Helix so the FOH gets a good signal and my amp gets a good volume too? The last 2 times I gigged with setup the stage monitors were distorting as if the speakers were blown.
  3. I don't know why only my Helix was updated to 3.15 and not HX edit.
  4. the attached .hlx file won't import into HX Edit.
  5. As I am always learning and trying to improve my live sound, I have decided to explore some new routing on my Helix. Just curious what you think. I want to run 2 signals in parallel. Sig A will be dry (no fx) and routed to the 1/4 output from the Helix to go to my head and 4x10 cab (my stage volume). Sig B will have some compression, light distortion, maybe a little EQ, and some reverb. I will route sig B to my XLR output from the Helix to go to FOH and stage monitors. In your opinion, is this worth a try? What are some issues in trying this method?
  6. Maybe this has been covered, please excuse me if it has been. I am a bass player. I would love to use my Helix LT for live gigs. I have only used my Helix LT for practice and to record via USB to my DAW. Ideally, I'd like to run my Helix LT through my SWR 750X head and SWR 4 X 10 Goliath III cabinet. Assuming I can use my rig as a stage monitor and run XLR to the front of the house. What is the preferred setup and settings to accomplish this? I am only using effects like a compressor, distortion, eq, and some light reverb. No amp or cab emulation. Thank you for reading
  7. I play bass guitar through a Line 6 Helix LT and use it for home recording and live gigs. My question is...Does the Helix have the possibility to get tones like the old Bass Pod Pro? I am chasing a specific tone and have read that the artist used the Line 6 Bass Pod Pro when recording and touring. Thanks for reading Kelly
  8. I have solved my issues with the PC and Helix. Thank you all for the support and advice.
  9. I use Spotify. I play in a tribute band, so I just create a playlist in Spotify that matches our setlist.
  10. I am currently not running any DAW or alike software on my PC. I do have Cubase5 and would like to use it. I have updated all the drivers for my soundcard and the Helix. I am new to the whole guitar/PC thing. I'm a basic plug and play guy. Guitar-amp-cab. I own a few effect pedals, but the set up is basic. "I JUST WANNA PLAY TO STREAMED MUSIC THROUGH THE HELIX AND MONITOR THROUGH MY HEADPHONES" I appreciate all the support and advice. I hope it is solved soon.
  11. Yes Thurston9, I believe you understand. What can I change on my PC or Helix to reduce the latency? Here is my current setup. Guitar to Helix via the 1/4 input. USB to PC. Studio Headphones to Helix via the 1/4 input Helix. I am thinking of going the Focusrite direction.
  12. I finally got through and talked to a line 6 tech. Waiting for the response from the ticket was frustrating. The issue seemed to be that I had the USB connection to the front of the PC and not the back. Okay, now I can stream audio to the Helix. But now, there is an echo, delay, or latency from the guitar. IDK what to do.
  13. Unfortunately, it didn't fix the issue. I have tried the suggestions above. I opened a ticket with support to see if they can help.
  14. So hopefully this is the problem...When I purchased the Helix from Guitar Center, I noticed the box had been opened. I didn't notice that the USB cable was missing. I used an older USB cable, likely USB 1.0 to update the firmware on the Helix. Data was fine, but audio must be an issue. I contacted GC and told them no USB was provided. They are going to give me a USB cable that should do the job. I hope this was the issue. Thanks for all the good ideas
