  1. I got my LT as a B-Stock from Sweetwater, which was just a touch more than what they were going for used. Maybe keep an eye out for one of those. Honestly, best decision I've ever made. I spend the majority of play time running thru some older Bose passive headphones. When I go out, a small FRFR speaker gets the job done with room to spare. Now, if I were playing in a band that gigged fairly often. I'd probably opt for the Line 6 Powercab or go with 2 decent FRFR cabs.
  2. Great point. I hadn't considered the other use cases.
  3. Yup. I've worked in the audio engineering industry for close to 25 years. During that time I've measured tons of loudspeaker speaker systems. Let me assure you, they are not "flat", not even the best of the best. If you want a flat response, you need to look at serious high end hifi gear...not something you'd play guitar through. The term flat response may be their way of saying "we aren't adding any extra EQ or DSP". It's certainly not a flat frequency response. No system is ever flat in a room and will change from room to room, even changing within the same room, depending on placement. The other FR (full range) is also misleading. You don't really need a Full Range system for guitar. You need something that will operate from like 60Hz to like 12kHz. I think this is just to drive home the point that whatever comes out of the Helix is accurately reproduced by the loudspeaker. All that said. There are tons of really good options. Just depends on what you want it to do.
  4. Man, this no rules thing is starting to mess with me...
  5. I'd go Placater Dirty. Absolutely love that amp.
  6. Still learning myself but yes, an IR block replaces a cab block. Correct, you wouldn't replace and amp block with an IR block. I suppose you could use both a cab and IR block in your chain.
  7. Yup, that was it. Thanks. Silly question, the 1024 & 2048 mean anything? If I had to guess I'd say ones a single cab the other a dual.
  8. So I downloaded the Allure pack and loaded them into my Helix LT via the HX Edit software. All 6 of them are visible in the IR tab but when I drop an IR block into my signal chain, I can only select from two models, neither of which match the names from the Allure pack. The weird part, when I am in the HX Edit software with the IR block selected I can drag the scroll bar and select any of the IR's from the Allure pack, but not from the Helix. Did I miss a step?

    Digital distortion

    Yep. Then use the amp blocks master volume to bring the level back up.

    From the manual
  11. Oh, shoot. I didn't know you could adjust levels in the return block. Good to know, thanks.
  12. I ended up splitting the 3.5mm jack of my device to two 1/4 and used the RETURN of the FX loop. I drop a SEND/RETURN block into my second signal path to separate it from the guitar path. So far, its worked pretty well and I already had the cables. I might try and put a volume block along with so I can tweak the level from the Helix.
  13. So, theoriticaly I should be able to use a USB-C to USB-B cable to connect my Android to the Helix LT?
  14. The Yamaha HS's are nice. You could probably get away with the 6.5's. Depends on how loud and how low you want them to go. There are litterly tons of decent monitors out there. Shouldn't be hard to find something to suite you needs.
