  1. I found a strange behaviour of my HX Stomp (Firmware 3.11) that I control with an external Arduino-based MIDI Controller (for program changes, snapshots and block activation). The problem does not occur with another (coomercial) Midi-Controller I have, still this is very annoying, as my complete rig is build around this controller AND IT USED TO WORK FLAWLESS until I updated to 3.10/3.11. Directly after switching the hx on, everything works fine: Block activation via midi works AND is shown on the HX (blocks greyed out or activated) Values (e.g. Delay time) can be changed AND these changes are visible on the HX After a progam change via the Midi Controller Block activation and value changes still work but are no longer displayed on the HX See a video here! Probably, my Arduino controller is struggeling with the changes in the midi implementation introduced with Release 3.10: New and Improved MIDI Implementation Helix Floor, Helix Rack/Control, Helix LT, HX Effects, HX Stomp, HX Stomp XL MIDI Snapshot changes on CC69 that are received during preset loads will now be buffered and executed once the preset load is finished. This means that you can send a MIDI Snapshot change immediately after a PC message to effectively load a preset with a different Snapshot than it was saved with Bank/Preset/Snapshot Up and Down messages how properly work via incoming FS1/FS7 emulation MIDI messages FS1/2/3 emulation MIDI messages can now be momentary for HX Stomp (values 64-127 = press; values 0-63 = release) Stomp switch emulation MIDI messages now work while in preset or snapshot footswitch mode New MIDI message (Helix Floor/Rack/LT/HX Stomp XL): CC71 engages the MODE switch New MIDI message: CC 72 value 64-127 = next preset, value 0-63 = previous preset New MIDI message (Helix LT, HX Stomp, HX Stomp XL): CC 73 toggles between Play and Edit views Anyway, I will look further into this. Even if this might be related to the Arduino midi implementation, any help is highly welcome. Anybody else have similar problems? Please let me know!
  2. It works perfectly. The sweep for a wah is different, but completely acceptable. And... You can configure it to automatically go off in tow or heel position!
  3. Just a quick "thank you" for adding the Tone Sovereign to the 2.8 update. A clone of the KOT was my last analog pedal on my board and has been the source of my main crunch sound for a couple of years up to now. I did an A/B with the Tone Sovereign and while there is a slight difference, I cannot tell which one is better (and forgot which one I was on after some playing).
  4. The vol pedal needs a trs cable. Could have made a trs into ts and trs as well. But this way, I only need one long trs cable and a short ts cable. Stuff, I always have in my cable box, so no need for special cables, which I tend to forget at home...
  5. I don't know, if this has been described somewhere else, but I thought I'd share it. I wanted to use my Line6 HX Stomp with an existing volume pedal (Boss FV-500-L) and a momentary footswitch. To use the expression output of the volume pedal alone with the HX, no modifications are required, just make sure you use a TRS (stereo) cable (mono - TS - won't work). If you want to use an additional footswitch (which will show up as FS5 (!) in the HX) you need to get hold of the ring and the sleve of the TRS cable and connect a momentary footswitch. I found the easiest way to do it was to add a mono (TS) jack to the volume pedal and connect it to the jack PCB as shown. Don't be irritated by the dc jack I also added to the pedal: I added a buffer to the pedal as well, but the mod for the HX is completely passive / does not require power.
