  1. Thanks! Just taking the FX Loop out fixed it. After further research and your comments I just took out the fx loop block and good to go go. The time based effects sound fantastic. Then I tried going 4CM but that introduced a constant hiss that I can't find a way to get rid of. Not a hum; just more of a white noise type hiss. The drives seem to be pretty noisy in front of the loop as well. From reading forum posts and other gear sites this is a problem with the HXFX. Sucks because it seems like I won't be able to use the full capability of the unit. But thank you for the help!
  2. Hi there... I'm sure I'm making this harder than it needs to be but I'm getting super frustrated with trying to set up an effects loop. At this point I'm just trying to put the effects in the amp's effects loop just like on page 9 of the HX Effects manual (post effects). Guitar in the amp input then the signal chain is Kinky Comp>FX Loop 1>70s Chorus. Loop send /return levels are at 0db. The problem seems to be that with the loop mix set at 100 percent I get nothing and with it at 0 I get all sounds. This seems backwards to me. Am I thinking correctly and do I have everything set up right? Let's not worry about 4CM right now lol. The only thing in the effects loop is the chorus so why am I not getting any volume at all when mix is set to 100 percent? Do I need to put fx loop 2 after the chorus? Also, how doed hx know where the loop "ends" What if I want put something after the loop ? This is frustrating. Thanks for any help, Jeff
  3. Thanks to responders...I learned something very useful. Cheers!
  4. I read about that and it makes sense...I just didn't think it would happen to me LOL; I didn't think of myself as a power user. I'm using HX Effects. It would be nice if they were just greyed out so it would jog your memory that "hey, you can't use those." But even on a totally blank preset, I tried to use the poly pitch in 2 blocks. Nothing else. I could only use one. They take up that much processing power? If they do, they do, but sheesh. Thanks for the input though. I appreciate it. Jeff
  5. Hi...I was trying to build a patch last night and noticed something odd. I started with a blank preset. When I used the poly pitch effect on one block of my chain, none of the new poly effects would display as options in subsequent menus. i.e I wasn't able to run 2 poly pitches consecutively. Then I noticed when trying to insert a reverb, none of them were even listed. If I went to a fresh preset, they were. I hope I am describing the problem clearly. I guess my question is aren't all effects available for new blocks, regardless if you're already using one? Yes... I've already updated to the latest versions. Thanks...I hope that made sense. Jeff
  6. Hi there....I tried to open HX Edit today. The last time I used it about a month ago it was fine. Today, my HX Effects unit doesn't appear. There's just the HX Edit screen with the menu bar, just no unit showing up. I had previously updated everything. I've got firmware 3.10, Line 6 Updater 1.2, HX Edit Installer 3.01. Like I said, about a month ago it was fine. I'm sure it's something simple, but I didn't change anything that I know of...help please? Thanks, Jeff
  7. Thanks... I've now tried both global and factory reset. No change. The weird is that when I push the #1 knob it functions normally... Just not when I turn it.
  8. Hi...I noticed for the first time today that my #1 parameter knob (HX FX) will not let me change values. It I press it it goes to learn mode, but it has no effect when just using it in rotary fashion. I don't think I changed anything; if I did it was by accident. I updated to 3.01 back in December. Any ideas? Thanks, Jeff
  9. Well duh on me... Lol. I just didn't scroll over enough on the global settings to get to the latch /momentary option. Problem solved. Thanks for the help both of you. Have a great day!
  10. I didn't edit anything though. I'll take you thru my steps. Turn on HX. Go thru banks to my Def Lep preset which has 2 snapshots one clean and one distorted. At this point there is NOT a little E. Click both up/down bank switches to put me into snapshot mode. But now all all 4 snapshots are blinking (which was not the case previously.) When I tap either switch it kicks me out of snapshot mode and back to bank... And now the little E is next to the name of the block. I didn't edit anything. But of course now I'm out of snapshot.
  11. Hi... Seems like since update a small E is showing up next to my preset name if I open the preset and tap a footswitch. When I go back to the bank I'll have a little E next to the preset name. It's messing with my snapshots. What is it and what have I done?
  12. Hi... I'm using HX Effects running into a tube amp. This is probably on a forum somewhere but I couldn't really find it so thanks in advance for your patience. Can someone give me some advice on making a block to get a reasonable facsimile of an acoustic guitar? Sort of a like a Boss AC-3 pedal? It would really be cool if line 6 just added that pedal to the next update... Thanks!

    HX Effects

    Hi...when I bypass my HX Effects to just use my amp, there is drop off in volume. So, I need to bring down the overall output of the HX to match. Is there a way to do this through global settings? That would be much easier than having to go through and readjust individual block levels. Sometime, all you need is your amp! Thanks!
