  1. Ok, so I see what you are talking about. The up down buttons could be set to either the next bank or to the next set of stomps.
  2. Couldn't you use one of your snapshots to change the parameter of the output block
  3. I wonder what the hd500x would sound like running through the Helix effects loop? Will try that when I get home! Thanks for the idea
  4. Your response brought about a new question (sorry, hope it's not too much off track from the OP).... You said you use the HX Effects with the Helix using an effects loop. Where do you place the loop in your chain? I know it probably depends on what you are doing, but is there a typical spot? I have this question because I also would like just a few more stomps when playing live... mainly for effects. In the past, I have had two presets with the same amp/cab, etc... but a different set of effects.
  5. "Snapshot Bypass pertains to the Bypass Status of a Block. It doesn't prevent parameter changes to the Block." Thank you. That makes sense. I have the snapshot global settings set that way so I don't have to save each snapshot before changing to the next. I guess I could change it to discard when playing live. Thank you for the suggestion. I'll play with that and see what happens!
  6. Just wondering if this is a bug, expected behavior, or problem between the keyboard and the chair! My global settings for snapshot edit = Recall and snapshot Reselect = Reload. I have snapshots set to change the reverb levels or delay settings. I want all the other settings to stay the same. I keep it in stomp mode and use it like a pedal board. To change snapshots, I click bank up and bank down at the same time. This lets me select a snapshot (to change reverb, delay settings, or whatever), then it automatically goes back to stomp mode. I have the Snapshot Bypass unchecked for all blocks except the reverbs and delays(things that change with snapshots) so the activated stomps don't change when I pick a snapshot. All of this works great! My problem is with the amp blocks. For some presets (patches), I have a stomp set to change the volume and drive settings on the amp (clean to dirty). A few days ago, I noticed that even with the snapshot bypass for the amp unchecked, changing snapshots changes the amp(drive,volume) settings to whatever they were the last time the snapshot was active. It is like the drive/volume settings are being saved with the snapshot. I thought unchecking the Snapshot Bypass on the amp was supposed to keep that from happening. Other blocks behave the way they should, for example, I can have the vibe block activated, then change a snapshot to add reverb and the vibe block stays active, even if it was not active the last time I was on that snapshot. An example of the problem is I can be playing a lead with the drive/volume block activated. I want more delay, so I change to the heavy delay snapshot, however the drive/volume block changes based on the last time I was on that snapshot. Clear as mud? Does anyone know if that is the expected behavior? It seems that assigning an amps parameter to a block makes it ignore the Snapshot Bypass setting. All help is appreciated!
  7. That sounds like you may be using the One button Looper as opposed to the Six(?) button looper. I use the one button looper and it just shows the colors on the button. If I use the 6 button looper, the screen changes to show the different options.
  8. I think this may be more of a button issue. I have had the same issue in the past versions as well. you hit bank down and it skips two banks.
  9. could it have something to do with the new auto impedance feature that changes the guitar impedance based on the first Activated item in your chain?
  10. Kind of off topic, but was very important to me. The Cab you use (or I use). I use the stock 1x15 bass cab with the gain up to 5.2 low pass at 90, high pass around 8k. I have an eq block at the end that does more high/low cuts). I play the Helix lt through a DT25 with the line6 cable and xlr outs into a xr18 through EV ZLX's as my home rig. At gigs, I use the DT25 and then xlr's to FOH. Back to the cab.... IMO, I did not like any of the other cabs... I would match watch Jason S. was doing and the other cabs still sounded too brittle.... then I used the 1x15 cab. To me it sounds great.... and on every amp. So to me, I believe the Cab is as important as the amp (I know that is not what this thread is, sorry.... just thought it was important since the OP is going to be learning stuff). I have what i call a Master set list that I put the patches i will use in a gig on... I try to keep it at 4 banks (16 patches). I have another setlist that I am going through each amp and building patches based on each amp and grouping them together. When I find something that blows me away, I replace something in my Master Set List with it. So, now to my fav amps: - clean: arch clean, Tweed Blues, Lux Nrm, and the Zed - crunch/drive: Plexi, J45, Cali Rect., Tweed blues - high gain: Solo and the Revv amps

  12. Be careful if you upgrade to 2.0 on your DT25. One of my DT25's will not work any more after I tried to upgrade it. My other DT25 upgraded with no problems... using the same cable and same process.....
  13. check the level of your 1/4 and XLR outputs in the configuration screen. the line level will blast your amp, change it to mic (i think its mic.... just not line)
  14. What is the output for the very last path... 2b? I don't understand that last merge.
  15. how do you do that, you don't get to put an effect on the r or l path.... or am I missing something (which is a distinct possibility :) )
