    Bug Fixes in 2.82

    • When a stomp footswitch is used to toggle a parameter’s min and max values, in some cases the dim/lit state of the LED could become inverted
    • After importing a preset, certain blocks could appear in HX Edit but may not appear in the hardware
    • In rare cases, selecting snapshots could result in an error
    • While in Snapshot footswitch mode, the first press of a Bank Up or Bank Down switch could sometimes function backwards
    • When Global Settings > Footswitches > Preset Mode Switches is set to "Stomp/Snap," copying snapshots could inadvertently switch to Snapshot mode
    • When Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo > Tempo Select is set to “Per Snapshot”, tempo-synced effects could respond as Authentic even when set to Transparent
    • Ptich/Synth > 3 OSC Synth, 3 Note Generator, and 4 OSC Generator models are louder than in 2.71. IMPORTANT! Regrettably, this will affect any presets containing these effects that were made since 2.80
    • On rare occasions, footswitches could become stuck in Snapshot mode
    • The Dynamics > LA Studio Comp could sometimes cause a drop in preset volume
    • Presets created before 2.80 containing 64 controller assignments could be unable to switch snapshots after 2.80
    • On rare occasions, scribble strips on the top row could duplicate that of the bottom row
    • When set to “Per Preset”, Variax string volume settings may not be properly recalled


    Thank you.  I updated to 2.82 last night, but haven't tested if it fixed the bug. 


    I'll report back later when I play.

  2. Hello,


    This may be fixed in the latest firmware...but can someone let me know if a) this is fixed and b) if there is a fix/workaround.


    I setup my patch to have several different levels of reverb.

    1) Always on reverb

    2) Wetter on top of the always on activated by a footswitch

    3) Separate footswitch for very large sustain and even wetter


    Settings 1 and 2 are on the same footswitch essentially...however I've noticed even though it's setup to have the always on setting active when the footswitch is not active (not lit up) it's flipping.  Sometimes the wetter setting will be on when the footswitch is off...and other times it'll work as I designed and the reverb will only kick into the wetter setting when I turn on the footswitch.


    So, it seems like that specific setup is slipping the configuration and at times for no rhyme or reason.


    Can someone let me know if this is a known bug or what the fix might be?

  3. I'm using snapshots, but there's times when I need to switch over to another preset for a different song because I've setup separate configurations in Snapshots specifically for that song.  It's super inconvenient when switching that it doesn't persist the sound during the switch.  I owned several Strymon pedals that while switching from one preset to another...the previous preset would continue to ring through so that it wouldn't interrupt the flow of the song or transitions to new songs.

    Connect to PC via USB (no connection from computer audio out put is necessary).

    In Windows Sound Panel, set Output to the computers soundcard (not Helix). This gets streaming audio (Youtube etc) from computer to Helix, unprocessed.

    In Helix Globals set USB 1/2 Destination to Multi (default).

    Set Headphones Monitor to Multi (default).

    Plug your headphones into Headphone jack.




    When I play live... Do I need to tweak any of the global settings or should it be good?  I believe I'll be going stereo out via XLR at my church. 



  5. Hello,


    I'm getting my Helix on Monday...and one of the benefits my wife and kids have expressed is my ability to practice and play without plugging into my amp.


    So, my question...is how do I go about doing that?


    Here's what I'd like to setup:

    1) Getting audio from my PC to the Helix -- playing audio/tracks via my Windows PC.  Stereo output via 3.5mm jack or could purchase something for optimal output.  i have a 3.5mm to stereo 1/4" jack to input into the Helix.  I assume I'd set this up via the Aux In, As a Return, digital input?  Which would be best for this?

    2) Input into Helix via Guitar

    3) Output from Helix into my in-ear monitors -- presumably a output/return, via the Phones jack or through the 1/4" out?


    Thanks in advance for your input and insight.  :)
