    HX Stomp freeze twice

    My 2-week old HX stomp has been doing the same thing for the past couple of days. Haven't played out with it. Hasn't been abused in the slighted. It's been upgraded to the latest firmware since day one. The freezing takes place when I'm adjusting values on couple of the different amps. It will still process sound, so it's not like a full on crash, however none of the buttons or knobs respond. It'll freeze, but it won't ever recover, though I haven't given it more than 60 seconds of time to recover from the freeze. So I don't know if it can even recover from a freeze.

    Feature REQ: Envelope Follower

    Would ´╗┐like to submit a suggestion for an envelope follower. Somehow tie in an input sensitive controller that follows your dynamics to control the parameters on any effect or block. So, like an envelope filter, you can control the attack, decay, threshold, input sensitivity, range, and whether the effect opens up or down. I would love to apply a comprehensive follower to things like delay tails, tremolo depth and speed, pitch shifting and so on. Would be great to be able to attach the envelope follower control to the expression output to control outboard gear too. EDIT: Just found the IdeaScale. I'll repost this there in a moment. Wouldn't mind discussing the possibilities of the topic here. I understand if you feel it's redundant and this post needs to be deleted. Thanks for listening. ´╗┐ -J

    WHY does the harmonizer sound sooo bad?

    1. Yes, I am referring to polyphonic pitch shifting. And yes, I concur, it can not produce chords at other shifted intervals. 2. No, it can not play a hammer-on whilst another note is sustaining. If you can get it to do so, please, post a vid and show us your tricks. I'm playing a clean P90 pickup into the pitch shifter with nothing in between... Exactly what a pitch shifter should be looking for. Would love to see line 6 implement polyphonic pitch shifting, at least to a cleaner degree, for my purposes at least. BUUUUUUUT with that said, that's why they've incorporated their very well-thought out I/O, for these very instances where external effects can take the reins on these kinds of tasks.

    WHY does the harmonizer sound sooo bad?

    Hello all. First time posting, new Helix user here(approaching a month). I have to agree with the consensus that the helix, even after the latest update, does not track chords well, at all. A great example that everyone can try is play the intro to Wish You Were Here. The helix fumbles at replicating that hammer down from open A to 2md feet B while maintaining the G on the 6th string. Now to reply to someone's comment about how there isn't anything that can track chords... Play the 5 year old Electro Harmonix HOG2. You get full chord articulation, mind you with a slight bit of latency, which I can handle. The hog2 can even glissando between two chords, freeze chords, pitch shift while freezing a chord, and allows 8 shifts of pitch all at the same time from - 2,-1, 0, +1,5th, +2, 3rd+2, +3, +4. 5. Years. Old. The helix should be more than capable. At the expense of a couple of blocks? Or 5ms or so of latency, sure! I think we can live with that. Also, I will commend the helix for its low latency processing on pitch shifting. Now let's just see if we can convince line 6 to improve that pitch shifting algorithm.
