  1. In the case of Live, they are not. Tried saving many times as part of the Live session, but they do reset to 0dB every time I re-open it.
  2. This is normal (and it's part of the main problem discussed over here).
  3. That's interesting, as I've to do exactly the opposite to match Native input (-6dB) with my Rack input. The audio interface in the middle it's for sure the key factor here. How are you measuring the actual level on the hardware? (I wouldn't trust the graphics meters at all).
  4. I'm using latest Native with Ableton Live Lite 10, with a Scarlett 6i6. I've managed to match my Helix Rack tone, just going with a DI to LINE IN instead using INST level (whish they'd implement that auto impedance algorithm), plus a -6dB at the Native input, to prevent a too early amp breakin. It's working pretty good for me, especially because I don't care of high gain stuff.... Now the problem is that looks like Native isn't saving the input level I set, so every time I load my Live preset, I have to drop the Native input to -6dB, again and again... which is annoying. Am I missing something? Is there a way to force Native to keep IN levels settings? tnx!
  5. Check these two params ShiftTime—Determines how long it takes for the signal to ramp up or down to the set pitch when the block is enabled. Press the knob to toggle between ms/Sec and note/beat values. TIP: Want to hit the switch and have Poly Pitch dive bomb and land exactly one bar later? Press the knob to select note values and set ShiftTime to "1/1" ShiftCurve—Determines the trajectory curve of the pitch shift over time. StartSlow values are concave (slower changes to start, speeding up toward the end); StartFast values are convex (the opposite). At the knob's extremes (Start Slow 5 and Start Fast 5), the pitch will actually overshoot a little before settling on the target pitch. The default is "Linear"
  6. Sounds like a faulty a ticket. (if boot FS combinations arent working, there is nothing more you can do)
  7. This morning I grabbed the 90days fully functional trial of Ableton Live11, and loaded my typical preset; 1 Native session, plus a bunch of valhalla VSTs. Got a constant CPU overload, random spikes and terrible performances. Back to Live 10, where the same preset gives me 70% of constant CPU headroom. Not sure it's Native fault. Performances are terrible even without it. Just to let you know; dont waste your time trying Native in Live 11, LOL.
  8. On a serious note, this would be the right technology;
  9. You just need the Line6 Updater, and the Powercab connected to the PC via USB. The updater will do the rest. 6 Updater&os=All&submit_form=set
  10. It will work only if you're playing ...And Justice For All.
  11. Nada. I can't reproduce the problem. Couple of suggestions; try to stop the other strings, while playing single notes like that (to prevent ghost resonance) and also try reducing the Noise Gate at the input, which was really high, and this is not really helping getting clean notes, especially during the natural decay. That's a Gibson Les Paul Custom, from 87, with stock Tim Shaw humbuckers (bridge in this case). ANGL Meteor preset, the one you attached. Attached my sample of a bunch of random notes on B and e Strings.. Helix High Notes_TEST.mp3
  12. post the preset here, so that at least it's same patch. Don't say "does this with any preset" as I cant get that sound with any of them. So, going granular (aka being on the same page), might help isolating things.
  13. Sounds pickup/guitar related to me. Guitar is a huge variable here, very hard to repro your exact situation.
  14. 100% Hype. Also looks like a product with no future (price tag, many parts prone to fail, market saturation, niche of the niche, no heritage...). No go for me... Love the design tho.
  15. You should connect those speakers to the Helix, and use the PC Host to stream the songs through the Helix, via USB cable. Just set the Helix as speakers/soundcard in Windows, and you are good. If you dont need a DAW setup, but just a backing track, cant see the point to force the system working backward....
  16. AES is digital, doesnt need any left/right cables, just the one from Link OUT to Link IN. The other two cables (Analog out) are doing nothing as soon as Helix is sending OUT to AES/EBU.
  17. It's same format, but protocols are different (there is an extra bit, CH STAT, carrying info in a different way), and also there are impedance differences (as well as different Vp-p). Id grab a converter to avoid the problems you are getting.
  18. Sounds like the right nemesis to
  19. I wouldn't buy it. Last firmware reduced battery charge to less than an half. So, a fresh unit, will last average 3hrs, even if they advertise for 6. (not even sure it was lasting that much before the firmware, honestly) (you could search for a unit with the old firmware and stick with that.)

    MIDI Clock

    No. It's either external or internal, and this is for a good reason. Isn't a good move to jump between clocks that way. ;) May I ask what's the point to jump back and forth between different clocks and tap FS? Sounds messed up to me.
  21. PierM

    MIDI Clock

    Nope. Auto means "Auto-Sense", so it does automatically switch from external clock as soon as it does receive such a message. If no external clock is being received, then does automatically use its own internal clock. In this scenario, the input isn't your TAP, but the incoming clock.
  22. Cable is nothing magic, just a cheap LAN cable CAT5, that is soooo long that it's pretty much useless (unless you keep the rack far from your position).
  23. I'm sure there is a reason if they added DC IN and USB hardware to the Helix Control. You don't engineer and produce random stuff without a goal and a plan. This means the Helix Control is capable to work as standalone USB controller, as soon as both Controller firmware and host will comunicate properly. Probably won't work as a MIDI controller with non-l6 stuff, but I'm pretty confident it will work with Native. It's 2021, there is a new generation of musicians which are mostly working live with laptops and ableton. Helix Control would be the perfect companion for Native in a rehearsal or a live performance.
  24. I bought a WL-50, to replace my two G10. Well, it's a nice unit, but does affect the tone, especially on hot pickups. Kind of dirty breakin/distortion at any distance from the receiver. I'd suggest to try it before to buy it. ;)
  25. Well, let's say some company are more fair than others. I suffered a swollen battery with a 3 years old iPhone. Brought to service for a repair on a Apple service, they gave me a brand new iPhone (new model as mine was previous gen) for no money. That is the Apple's Quality Program E1.
