  1. got it to work.. it's really cool... (for me anyway :)) so I have a path 2 and now path 2A. 2A only has the looper on it and it's out is to the 1/4 inch. The looper is at the end of the chain. Path 2 out is to the XLR's. I have the xlr's and 1/4 inches on different inputs on the XR18. When creating the loop, I have the mix between path 2 and 2a set in the middle. When playing the loop and playing on top of it (and recording all this in separate tracks in Reaper) I have the mix between path 2 and 2a set to bypass the looper. This way, none of my guitar playing gets through on the looper 1/4 outs as well as the looper doesn't get in the xlr outs. I thought that was cool :)
  2. Has anyone ever tried to put the looper in a different out? I would like to be able to record the looper in a separate track and still play on top of it in another track. I'm using the Helix light with xr18 into reaper. Just curious if anyone else has tried this.
  3. My down bank button has started moving down two banks... .i.e. going from bank 3,4 to 31,32. I have to be careful when I mash it. Has that happened to anyone else? Is that a warranty fix?
  4. Does the preamp then cab cancel out stereo blocks before them. For example, would the signal be changed to mono by the preamp and cab block. So the stereo minator would just mono after the amp cab... So no need in using stereo until after the amp/cab. Is that correct, or am I missing something.
  5. don't know how to reply, so this is in reply to phil_m about the DT25 being fragile. First off... I love mine. I have two. The first one I has had a lot of trouble. I had to take it to a tech in a near by city several times. had to fix a fuse inside and something else. Also, the tubes have gone bad alot. Part of that was on me (maybe all of this :)) by using different tubes... .but even when I went back to the EH's, I had problems. seems it was fine if I didn't move it, but taking it to gigs and practice, it would have problems. It worked ok for a few years, then last year when I was trying to upgrade it to 2.0 to use with the Helix... it got stuck in the middle and now it will turn on, but none of the switches work and no sound. Broke my heart! I did the same upgrade procedure to my other DT25 and luckily that worked. My problem is there isn't a shop that works on the DT25 anywhere near me.... so now it is just dead!
  6. First, that was really nice. Second, beautiful guitars. Third, that was really nice :).... Ok, forgive me for sort of being off topic. Here is a perfect example of why it would be nice to be able view the helix edit without the helix unit connected. I would love to SEE what he has put together. I should be working of course, but I want to think about important stuff so of course I came to the Helix site. You have done a great job on this and I would love to see you signal chain, etc.... ok, I'm done. Thank you for sharing, very nicely done. The tones were dead on and the playing was very clean!
  7. man, did I love that and the DT25.... other than the DT25 being so fragile, together they made beautiful music!
  8. I forget where I got it, but there is a great explanation of the Fletcher Munson(sp?) effect on the google. This guy goes into the science and it is very interesting. He had a few eq blocks that you could put on the end of your chain and it would simulate the sound you get at louder volumes.... Yes, yes, I know, that's impossible, but it was close. Because I can't always set my tones at playing levels, I started using an eq patch like his at the end of my chains with a snapshot having it on or off. I would set the tone with it on while playing at lower levels. It is not perfect, but it is a very good start.
  9. ooooohhhhh! that's nice. Was it in 2.82? I didn't notice it. Thank you. nice touch now that i know. I thought it might be some kind of dsp indicator....
  10. I didn't notice this before 2.91 however it may always have worked like this. What does the line above the amp name mean? In stomp mode, when you click on a button, there is a line above the name that separates the path flows and the name of the amp or whatever is assigned to that button. Sometime it is lit up all the way across, sometimes it is only half or a quarter way lit. What does this mean?
  11. I have a helix lt. I connect it to my DT25 through the link cable. I also connect it to an XR18R mixer going to EV speakers using the Left and Right XLRs. A few nights ago, I was tweaking a patch that uses the RevvGen preamp. There was a loud pop and my DT25 stopped working, however the sound continued through the XR18. I figured a tube may have blown on the DT25 and would put new ones in later. Last night, I went back to the patch I was working on, and it was gone! I had a copy of it in another spot and copied it back to the original spot (1C). I made some tweaks, saved it, and went on to mess with other patches. When I went back to 1C, the patch was gone again. So I copied another patch (that used a different preamp) to 1C, changed the amp to the RevvGen and saved it. I switched to another patch, did some stuff, came back to the 1C and it was gone again..... So I copied another patch to 1C with a different preamp, made some small changes but did not change it to the RevvGen preamp. I saved it, went to other patches, did stuff and came back to patch 1C.... it was still there! So, has anyone else seen this behavior? RevvGen patches going away? When I say going away, all the blocks were erased, it looked like an empty patch. It seemed to only be for the RevvGen..... however, I have other RevvGen patches that are similar to the one the got erased that work fine and do not erase themselves. Do you think that whatever made the DT25 stop working messed up the physical patch location 1C? Any thoughts are appreciated! Thanks.
  12. Sorry, did not mean to include the quote in an already long, but very interesting post. Can you give me an example of some of your different patches? I am certainly not trying to disrespect what you are doing. I just can't think of 80 completely different sounds that require a specific patch. I use the clean, crunch, drive, spacy method for my gig patches. I will use the different banks for different amps.... Sometime s the only change in a patch is adding a term, instead of chorus because I have a LT and run out of buttons. So back to my original question.... What are your different patches? Could you not use snapshots or stomps to change similar songs? I can't even think of 80 different types of songs that are so completely different they require a patch. Also, did you know with the helix you can edit on the fly with your feet? That is kind of cool and a skill I'm trying to learn. Thanks, just trying to understand and maybe help make it easier for you!
  13. I noticed the rebuild each time as well. I thought it was normal.
