  1. I got one a week or two ago for my LT. Easy to install, fits fine. You basically remove 3 screws from the edges of the Helix and use the thumb screws provided with the cover to attache it. Took me all of about 2 minutes. Not waterproof, but it'll protect from the casual sloshed beer onstage. Also actually prevents your patch cords from accidentally moving the knobs, which has been an occasional problem for me w/ my LT (especially the volume knob). I can't disagree that the price is a bit steep, but it's a well-made product IMO.
  2. I've always liked Fender cleans too, and I've been pretty happy with what I've been able to get from the Archetype Clean amp on the Helix. ...YMMV as always.
  3. Wanted to chime in to say that I have had this issue too. Improves after re-starting my Mac, but still happens occasionally.
  4. I had a Boss GT-6 a long time ago and used its feedbacker effect quite a bit (assuming it's basically the same as the standalone pedal). Would love to see this in the Helix. There's a post requesting it on the IdeaScale site...perhaps some additional upvotes could move the needle: https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Helix-Feedbacker/741209-23508#idea-tab-details
  5. Hey all, I have now done 5 gigs with my Helix LT. Overall, I'm very happy with it, and having a ton of fun. But the tone that I'm struggling the most to find is a good, ballsy clean tone. A hint of dirt maybe, especially when I dig in, but I generally want to be able to play a solo in the upper register and have it cut through the mix (above keys, drums, bass), and stay more or less clean. I'm getting pretty close w/ the "Archetype Clean" amp and goosing the mids, but there's room for improvement. Any thoughts/advice/tips?
  6. I'm very new to the Helix, but would have sworn I was experiencing this, or something like it, at a gig last week. Haven't been able to recreate the problem at home, but I have a few gigs coming up, and have re-dialed some of my OD settings...interested to see if it happens again.
  7. FWIW, I have only had the Helix for a couple of gigs and rehearsals so far, and am no expert, but have found it to be no problem to switch presets on the fly...super easy to do. There's a brief audio gap, but we're talking milliseconds. So you can't do it mid-phrase, but you can certainly do it in the middle of a song wherever you have a breath. The most important thing you have to do is make sure the different presets are well-balanced in terms of volume & tone so that the change isn't too extreme.
  8. I was trying to do what the OP is describing--using the Wham Pitch effect to drop the pitch down a whole step w/ the exp pedal, and ALMOST got it. I'm doing this in stompbox mode. So I set up the Wham Pitch on a block, and assigned that block to a footswitch so that I can turn it on and off at will. Then, with the effect on (not bypassed), hit the menu button, then hit button 2 (controller assign), then hit button 6 (learn controller), and move the exp pedal so that it "learns" it. Then, on that same screen, set "min value" to 0 and "max value" to -2. So this basically does what the OP describes, BUT...the pitch shifting is not smooth. I can hear it drop a half step, and then another half step, but it's not smooth. Anyone know if there's a way to make it a smooth dive? EDIT 12/5: I figured it out in HX Edit. Not sure why it was so hard to figure out, but I'm new to the Helix. Here's how I did it in stomp box mode...YMMV. 1. Enable the Pitch/Wham block, assign the bypass to the footswitch of your choice. 2. In the Edit window, set the heel & toe values to 0 and -4 (-4 gives you 2 whole steps) 3. Go to the Bypass/Controller assign window, look for Pitch Wham in the list, set the "Pedal Position" parameter to EXP 1 (or 2, whichever you want). 4. The "Bypass" parameter should also be there in the list if you assigned it to a switch (step 1). If you see any other paramaters with assignments, clear them.
