  1. I see what you are saying, however, I keep thinking of this great floor board I bought several years ago because I loved what it did then.... and then I find out the company put out FREE updates... and keeps on doing that!!!! To me that is awesome.
  2. The buttons on my Helix floor are becoming flakey, meaning that sometime I have to stomp them several times to get the to activate or deactivate (change). I remember some people taking about how they cleaned the buttons, but there was something about losing some springs? My question is what is the best process for cleaning the buttons... and does it sound like cleaning would help my problem? Thanks!
  3. this may be a different issue, however, there were threads awhile back that talk about what shows on the PC screen. It had something to with the correct speaker would be selected, however the PC screen may not change to a different preset when changing the speaker from the helix. Bottom line was you get the speaker you want and just disregard what the PC screen says.....at least that is what I took away from that!
  4. If you offload it (speaker or IR) to the PC, then you have to go from the PC to the FOH. Correct?
  5. I can say I really love the PC112plus.... however I dont use the speaker models. I run it in LF Raw mode. But I love the way it sounds.... To me, the PC would give you more flexibility, however, it may not sound exactly like the black shadow..... it could be better or worse... depends on what you like. I always go with the more options.... but that's me.
  6. I think I understand and I do the same thing. I have a footswitch set to the output block and set it to 0 min and +3 max. works great. boost is after everything so nothing is changed tone wise, it's just louder!
  7. Your point is a good one and is probably shared with mostly newish or new to modeling level of players. I can see where it would make sense, buy this and it will sound like this! However, in reality as many have said (in billions of posts) that is not possible. The most Line6 can do it try to make the defaults for the amps, effects, etc. sound the best it can through a range of monitoring systems (maybe the wrong words but I mean whatever is used to get sound from the Helix). IMO, they have gotten better at that. For the new players that don't get immediately turned off, this can be a great learning opportunity that can improve their knowledge of what makes a good tone which I believe can help them be a better player. I don't know if it would be possible to "qualify" new customers' expectations on the possibilities of the expected sound without hurting the product sales. However, I believe that would help new players not get discouraged so fast. I know in my case, I really have enjoyed the "tone" rabbit hole and have learned so much from sites like this.... and I have been playing line6 stuff since the first beans.....
  8. I agree with PierM that the way a guitar "feels" in your hands is the most important thing for me. I also have guitars of varying price ranges, but only because they "felt" good. You can tell as soon as you put your hands on it if it is good or not. Yes, sometimes all it needs is a change of strings and a good setup, but it still needs that feel. That's why I can never understand why guitar places don't take the time to at least do a basic setup and maybe change the strings. So many times I have picked up a guitar at places like Guitar Center, Sam Ashe, etc, and the strings were way off the neck and were rusty.... I know it's silly, but it drives me crazy! (or maybe, I should be happy because now I have more money in my pocket :))
  9. this may be completely off base, but R2DR2 (or something like that, sorry) has posted about a problem with the treble/tweeter something not working correctly in some cases. Maybe the treble trim? You could do a search for that or just look in the Power Cab section. He talks about it a lot. Maybe that is it or maybe that was only for the PC212+....sorry to be so vague! And I'm sure you have tried each PC by themselves without being hooked to each other? are you connecting them with the l6link? Good luck finding it. Please post what you find!
  10. that was an interesting question... espeicially since I don't have the helix native. Thanks for posting the answer.
  11. would the impedance on the guitar input make a difference. That is the classic problem when the gate is too hot, but you said you are not using a gate, so maybe the guitar input impedance is too low along with having the pad on.
  12. I also use the PC in Flat, LF Raw mode. I do not bypass the cabs and mics in the helix.
  13. Have you tried the 4 cable method? I don't use that, but from my understanding, the whole point of that is to keep your amps sound. That may help.
  14. The Wrightsville Beach band was called Fallen Angels. The bassist is Taylor Lee. I could not find any recent videos of him, but they were amazing! Loved the way he chorded, double stopped, etc.... beautiful! And a young guy at that :) (Damn KIDS :) )
