    Tempo-based utilities like gate and volume

    Hey ho, just to add that I've been experimenting with a tremolo block at the beginning of path B to function as a sort of gate. I could get somewhere near the gating I'm after. Quite painful to set it right though and either too abrupt with a square wave or too lose with a triangle (letting too many notes slip in). Tried with all the tremoloes and the results are the same. I hope Line6 will borrows some tech from Yamaha and their expertise in synths and throw some synth-like utilities in the helix. Automating parameters through an LFO and/or an Envelope would be pushing the possibilities of the Helix to a new world.

    Multitap with pitch shifting per tap

    Hey Phil, you're right the harmony delay does kinda that but it's rather limited with 2 taps only + root note. 6 Taps would allow for more rhythmical grooves. A glide function would also be great. Or even better a new block model that act as a full arpeggiator (Eventide has it). Please don't tell me I should buy a synthesizer ;-).

    Multitap with pitch shifting per tap

    Hi guys, i'd like to throw another idea in the creative department. I'd totally need a multitap delay that would pitch shift every single tap. It'd be basically an effective arpeggiator. I'd be enough to add a parameter to the existing multitaps. I'd be a killer and I'm sure would add a lot of value to the helix. Mind there's no such effect pedal around that does such thing except for the echolution2 by pigtronix (and that cost over 600$). Wouldn't it be a good idea for a future update? I'm no engineer but I dare to think it wouldn't be a huge work to add this feature (as the helix having already the technology both for multitaps and pitch shifting). Or maybe you guys worked out some similar ideas in a different way. Then please share it. Many thanks
  4. Hi everybody, the more I explore into my HX FX the more ideas I get, especially thanks to the awesome flexibility over the signal chain. I spend all my time in the signal view. I'd say I'm using the helix more like a creative tool, rather than a tone one. That's way I got the HX FX and not the full floor unit. I was hoping there were more discussion about the creative/experimental side of things. I mean... having two separate chains (and having one at 100% wet) opens up to a hell lot of creative possibilities. First big question I have is: how to have blocks like volume and gate being automated by the tempo to create for example auto-volume swells (tight to the BPM and not to dynamics and such like Adrianswell or Vintageswell). I can't use a pedal to do this 'cause I'm already dealing with playing the guitar and singing and change the sounds etc.. The gate idea is even crazier so I try to paint a scenario (assuming I'll be playing tight as hell): I have two signal path A&B. Let's say A is the "guitar" channel and B is the "Crazy". I play fingerpicking and I want the bass notes only (thumb picked) to be picked up by the B signal chain. I know I'll be playing a bass note every let's say quarter, so I'd have a gate to mute the incoming signal every quarter, therefore getting a quarter notes bass line to process as I please (for example with harmony pitch or multitap to create basslines). What do you think? Do you guys know any workaround? Thanks in advance
