    HX edit no longer works

    It appears so. This works on my gaming PC but the one I just built for recording and streaming has this issue and I have tried almost everything. Thanks for the reply.

    HX edit no longer works

    Everytime I try to open hx edit it copies whats on my desktop into a slightly smaller window then closes as son soon as it connects to my helix. I've tried reinstalling,restarting and every compatibility mode. I don't know if it makes a difference but I have a new ryzen 3700X processor.Please help me if you can. Thank you for any help you can give.

    oops.... I bought an Axe FX III.... but...

    If I could afford it I would buy it to. I love my Helix floor but I always want more. Maybe it's a grass is always greener thing but I m just addicted to gear and toys and love playing with them. I get the best sounds I have ever got out of a processor from the Helix and I love it but I also bought it because I was under the impression there would be continuous updates.

    Acoustic sim patches/presets

    Anyone able to come up with a good sounding acoustic sim preset. I've tried and have a few some even using taylor IRs but I'd like to know what others are doing and how you are doing it. Are their some some basic guidelines to follow. Thank you.

    Why does this even matter? They belong where the developers put them and then you get use to it. Thank you very much.

    Do you like the stock cabs

    Thanks for the replies I like being able to look at things from another perspective and that is why I am on this site everyday.

    Do you like the stock cabs

    When I first bought my Helix I didn't understand it and how it worked and tried to use it like one of the many cheap multi effects units I've owned in the past. But after research and tinkering I fell in love with it and look forward to using it every day. But I kept trying to use IRs believing what I was reading about the stock cabs. After getting some IRs that I found to not be to my liking I started tinkering with the stock cabs more and found that I now live them and have been creating and using presets with stock cabs. They sound amazing to me. Was wondering if this is the case with others.

    Helix Ideascale Community Submissions

    I added a request/idea for Driftwood Purple Nightmare and Hughes and Kettner amp models. All the H&K amps I've tried sound just awesome at high gain and the purple nightmare is a work of art.

    Guitar input pad - does you or doesn't you?

    I keep it on for headroom. My main guitar has dimarzio fusions and second guitar has a carvin m22 sd in the bridge. I absolutely love that pickup.

    Helix vs AXFX 3, seriously...

    No comparison? I get killer tones with my Helix. I'm addicted to gear and always want more and I find the helix quite satisfying.

    Helix vs AXFX 3, seriously...

    no matter what he uploads you will look for flaws and try to exploit them to support your argument. Atleast it seems that way with how you're pushing the issue. WOW.

    Helix vs AXFX 3, seriously...

    What is that suppose to me mean? What is good tone to one person may be crappy to another it's all a matter of taste. I like stinky cheese with my reverb. Enjoy playing. We are lucky to have the toys available today.

    Tutorial on how to make good sounds

    I know this topic is old but to anyone reading when I first received my Helix I was sure I had been duped and all these people were insane and I could get better tone with an RP 360. I was extremely wrong and I'm glad I didn't give up. I have gotten IRs and I hardly use those now because I've learned how to use the helix to get what I wanted from it. I love it and no longer look externally for presets and IRs I simply make my own and they sound Vetter to my ears than anything I'll buy. Learn to really use the tool it is amazing.
