  1. Hello, I use Ableton for recording and use my Line 6 Helix as my rig (and my soundcard). Upon opening the application it informed me it is "unable to connect to ASIO Helix Stomp". No settings have changed so this seemed odd. I've both updated the Helix to the latest version, restarted the machine, made sure all wires were connected etc. but cannot rectify the issue. I will note that before i updated from 3.0 to 3.01 that the only sound my computer/Helix was producing was static. After the update this issue was fixed so I cannot understand what is happening with its connection to Ableton.

  3. Hey just wanted to say thank you for all of the advice here. I finally got a chance to sit down with this again and I think I finally got it!!! The key was remembering to "arm" both tracks in Ableton. So appreciative of the time y'all took to help out!
  4. Thanks for your reply...Yes I'm looking to just do this with factory presets in the most basic fashion possible (so i can ultimately send my work to my audiophile bandmate to play with the sound) To answer: I've got the ASIO Helix set up. Also I've got the Re-amp Src as USB 7. In the next portion I did not have mono input 7 and 8 selected (I do now!)... So to reiterate (as I'm very possibly still overthinking)...All i have to do with the helix is pick a sound and play and set up Ableton correctly (as you've shown)? Or is there something more i have to do with the helix (I've gone crazy watching wet/dry videos on youtube which is likely why I'm overwhelmed by this)
  5. Thanks for reaching out. Sorry, my problem is that I don't know how to set up the Helix itself to do this. I'm finding it hard to get the right demo online that shows a diagram of how the helix is supposed to look when this is being executed
  6. Hi everyone, I'm new to the Helix and trying to figure out how to execute the below from page 54 of the user manual. Simply put, it's recording a Dry DI track into Ableton (recording software) while getting to hear myself with an amp/cab/effected sound. The below are the instructions but it's not working for me. My set up is basic: Helix into my computer via USB (which is working as my "sound card"), two speakers on my computer which the Helix runs cables into, Guitar into Helix via "Guitar in". Can someone send a diagram of a simple execution of this and explain any nuance a beginner like me should know? For this example, we'll record guitar into two DAW tracks simultaneously, with one capturing the Helix-processed tone and the other the unprocessed DI guitar. 1. In the Helix Global Settings>Ins/Outs>Page 3 screen, set Re-amp Src (USB 7) to "Guitar" (as shown above). 2. Dial in your desired Helix tone, while keeping the Helix Input and Output blocks both set to the default "Multi" setting. 3. Create two new audio tracks in your DAW software project: Create one mono track to record the dry DI guitar, and set the track's input to Helix USB 7. Create one stereo track to record your full, stereo Helix-processed tone and set the track's input to Helix USB 1/2. GUITAR IN USB DRY DI GUITAR PROCESSED GUITAR TRACK 1 (Dry DI Guitar) TRACK 2 (Processed Guitar) 16B Dream Rig Duet Time Feedback [37%] Delay Harmony Delay Key Scale Mix Level 1/8 D Minor 40% 0.0 dB 55 4. Set both tracks' outputs, as well as the DAW Master output, to Helix USB 1/2 to allow all tracks to play back through Helix. NOTE: Setting the stereo track's output to Helix USB 1/2 allows you to hear your Helix-processed tone via the Helix hardware monitoring while recording. For this configuration, disable software monitoring on all DAW tracks. 5. Arm both these DAW audio tracks, hit the Record button and start laying down your guitar performance! Now you have your Helix-processed track to hear with the project, and a separate DI track with which you can further experiment at any time with DAW plug-ins and/or reamping (see the next section).
