    3.2 hint?

    I'm hoping for: rev generator's fuzz channel a variac simulator or a plexi with a variac setting (l6 pod500) Schaffer Replica pedal better parametric EQ with visualization and without the limiting low mid and high settings A feedbacker would be nice. I currently simulate the effect using the pitch shifter at +19 maybe (I'm away from my helix ATM) and fade it into the mix with the pedal. When the pedal is up, its 100% dry guitar, and when fully depressed you get 100% of the +19 harmonic tone. I don't get that long sustained feedback you would get with a cranked amp but I could also engage the sustainer effect if I needed it. I hope that helps someone.
  2. Check out Jason Sadites' Youtube channel. He has a whole series of tutorials on mastering the helix. https://www.youtube.com/user/gtr111 Hope this helps.
  3. There are probably a couple dozen ways to do this without creating a pop sound during snapshot change. Rather than shutting off an amp and turning one on, think volume instead and you will have a smooth transition. Some examples: Use volume or gain blocks in front of the amps you wish to switch between. distortion snapshot input 1 = pedal gain [0] ---- brit plexi --- output input 2 = pedal gain [-120] ---- jazz rivet --- output clean snapshot input 1 = pedal gain [-120] ---- brit plexi --- output input 2 = pedal gain [0] ---- jazz rivet --- output or change the output levels distortion snapshot input 1 = brit plexi --- output [0] input 2 = jazz rivet --- output [-120] clean snapshot input 1 = brit plexi --- output [-120] input 2 = jazz rivet --- output [0] change a split from 100% A to the the distorted amp to 100& B to the clean amp Hope this helps. btw. I am away from my helix so the values may be wonky...
  4. Great to hear. Thank you very much for your help Silverhead. :)
  5. Thanks for the reply Silverhead. Will it screw up the warranty or her ability to update the firmware on her own PC at a later date?
  6. Hi, I have been giving guitar lessons to my neighbor's kid for a couple of years now and I decided to buy her a Helix LT for her birthday. I would like to know if I can update the firmware on my PC with my HX Edit to save her the hassle. Thanks.
  7. Mix a little "Tile Verb" in there also - either before, or in parallel to the "Room Verb". A little goes a long way.
  8. Glenn gives you the option of making your own bundles. https://www.glenndelaune.com/build-a-bundle.htm I have a quite a few of his patches and I think they're great.
  9. I'm away from my Helix at the moment but this is what I would do: Put a volume or gain block at the start your signal path. Set the level as low it will go. Assign the blocks bypass to a footswitch set to momentary so it only activates when you touch the switch. (silence when touching) I hope this helps.
  10. My guess is the Rev Gen's GREEN fuzz channel. Green demo at 7:42
  11. Just to follow up with my EQ problem. Rather than being a corrupt preset I'm thinking it may actually be a bug. In my original first snapshot (top picture of my original post) I was able to set the 2kHz band to +2.3dB. Now, strangely I cannot use that value. I can slide it to +2.2dB or +2.4dB, but +2.3dB won't pop up as the value. If I try typing in +2.3 into that band it reads 2.2 after I hit enter. Perhaps in the new FW, the EQ doesn't accept certain values and when it encounters these values in a preset it pumps them to +15db. Hmmmm...
  12. I did that right after I upgraded to 3.0 and I did it again today. The problem still occurs. I tried copying preset versions from my harddrive as well as the preset on the Helix into blank slots and the same +15DB issue popped up again. I guess I will have to rebuild the preset from scratch. Not a big task but thank you very much Datacommando and PeterHamm for your help.
  13. I have discovered a weird EQ bug in one of my presets. Snapshot 1 plays fine but when I switch to another snapshot all of the 2khz bands suddenly become +15dB - which is not how I had them set. Then when I switch back to snapshot 1, it too now says +15dB. If I double click the preset (reload) snapshot 1 corrects itself. But if I change snapshots again, the +15dB problem returns. I've imported an old exported backup I made months ago before installing 3.0 and it has the same problem even when saved in a different preset slot. Helix LT running HXedit 3.0 with 3.0 firmware upgraded recently from fw 2.82. Windows 7 machine 32GB ram Here are some screenshots and the preset. TOM WAITS.hlx

    I hope this helps:
  15. I am an EQ tweaking fanatic. Since my idea of a 30 band EQ (like my old ART unit) was poo-pooed, how about you take off the limits on the parametric EQ. Keep everything the same just go 0-20khz for the low, mid and high frequencies so I wont have to use multiple EQ blocks (extra DSP) if I want to tweak 3 lower or upper frequencies. Thanks.
