  1. If you have all inputs set to line then it's obvious a guitar will sound dull there. Dm12 is well known to have a veeeeery low output level tho... could be you need to crank your VCAs a bit.
  2. Does it smell good? Sorry man, I believe you baked the PCB... (wrong voltage, wrong polarity, both?)
  3. For a such small footprint I see no point in using buffers.
  4. They are cool but the cost to cover the entire floor is to much imho (especially for EU imports).

    Im a fanboy, I shall fight the battle!

    And yet another Helix vs Fractal thread in 5, 4, 3, 2.....
  7. I hear no difference, but man, I like that '64 ES-345!!!
  8. Yeah, I totally believe that. I do get a similar result using just a bit of compressor and rolling back the guitar tone to reduce harmonics, which is the same thing I do when I need some pitch to midi conversion. It works.
  9. I'm not gonna reply to this, as you'll probably read it in 2026...
  10. Helix Native needs input level to stay within the range of -36dB and -12dB (the gray area you see in the Native meters). Anything above that range, will start producing distortion. I'd start checking your guitar input level.
  11. If Iridium is setup as Amp+Cab sim, then Flat/FRFR is the best choice. If you setup the Iridium as Amp sim only, then you can use Speaker sim on the Powercab, and then access and dial with HF, but that's about personal taste.
  12. Nope. Although the Control seems engineered to also work standalone (USB C and DC ports), isnt working that way (yet)...
  13. Maybe it's just me. Give it a try and see. :)
  14. Relay G10II is arriving to Thomann in 1/2 weeks, so you can hold on that for couple of weeks more. If even the TII is lasting 3 hours (man, that would be silly), then you can throw it back and move on. I tried the boss, it does last waaaaay more than G10, but sounds crap (digital aliasing is there)..
  15. Try and let us know... ....joking. Just dont do it.
  16. Ah yeah. This means that test menu always been there, just "hidden" under Home+Amp buttons (5/6 in the L6 graphic) while booting. I need to check this, but makes totally sense. :)
  17. No guns. But we've been there already, and done that. ;)
  18. Worked and working with software companies for 3 decades now. I can say not everyone it's adopting the semantic versioning. Decimal versioning is a bit vintage I agree, but isnt wrong (ask Microsoft...).
  19. Line6 software doesnt use procedural updates (base install/Core + updated libraries), so each update it's just a brand new download of a brand new installer, which needs previous .exe version to quit. Im pretty sure you still were on 3.01 when you tried first time.
  20. I do have same rig as you. If I manage to reproduce the bug, I will kick a support ticket. I guess the more we are, the better.
  21. Just a note for everyone here; just be aware you need to unload and reload the updated blocks to make them last-gen. If you don't do that, new params won't show up. o/
  22. No crackling vinyl yet on Helix... I'm using Time Machine to do that stuff.. :P
  23. Well, if happen your will last 7 hrs, I'll eat my hat. :)
  24. You are probably young. :) that hiss it's the fingerprint of a magnetic tape, and mostly caused by the layer of magnetic particles, that are the active part on a tape surface.
  25. Interesting as the test menu wasn't available in the Rack, before 3.1. Anyway, are you pressing Knobs 5 and 6 (those under the LCD display), or are you pressing Footswitches 5 and 6?
