  1. I have many other presets setup with a custom tuning programmed into the tuning page on Helix LT with no problem. For some reason when I’m setting the custom tuning to Capo on 2nd fret (all strings tuned up 2 semitones) there is no effect. I’ve cranked them up 12 semitones and it still does not change the tuning. The overall settings are the same as all the others that work. Input I’ve tried Guitar/Variax and only Variax. Tuning is set to custom. Custom tuning is set 2 semitones up. Variax model is set. I’ve tried with Variax model knob pressed in and out. For some reason this setting just does not register the higher tuning (I can program it onto my Variax but I want it to be controlled through the Helix). My backing track for Paint It Black has the electric guitar in capo on the 2nd so that’s why I’m trying to do this tuned up. Any idea why this one preset will not work when all the others do? Thanks I’m advance!
  2. So, my old PC laptop could run everything and it got updated. My new Surface Book 3 did not (did and then didn't after updating Workbench) work, nor did my Mac which is 10.15 Catalina (Monkey only goes up to 10.14 Mohave even though 10.15 has been out for over a year, maybe they should update it?). Thank God I still had my old beat up laptop laying around! Problem solved!
  3. Great, so I thought maybe it was a software issue so I reinstalled Workbench HD and Line 6 Monkey. Still same problem with Monkey but now my Workbench says no guitar is plugged in! Any help would be appreciated. Would be nice if I could just plug in and update.......
  4. Hi, I've read the other threads I could find. They all say to connect to Line 6 monkey (one also said to have WorkbenchHD loaded too, I've tried both ways). Regardless, every time I open Monkey it says "no device connected" and only lists PODxt as a choice. My JTV69 is connected because WorkbenchHD connects just fine to it and shows all of my settings. Any ideas on how to reinstall the factory settings? It seems like some of my tunings are off. I use to be able to tune to capo tuning perfectly the first time, but now my 1st and 2nd strings always sound off. Many thanks in advance!
  5. Perfect! Thank you very much for the reply! That was very helpful!
  6. Hi all, so I'm getting my Helix LT soon and I have a JTV69 Variax. I'm currently living in China so I can't buy the VDI cable with the protecting case on it from Sweetwater. However, I have seen others mention it's just a Cat5 (RJ45) cable with a Neutrik case? Is that true??? If it is, I'm able to buy that (some random brands) in China. My question is... are Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat8 all the same? I've read that they are, but also that sometimes the Cat6 and higher are thicker wires so the plug might be different..... Also, are Cat5 and Cat5e the same? Right now I'm only finding Neutrik protector with Cat5e and Cat6..... Would that work for running from my Variax to Helix LT? Sorry, I'm not a technician so I have no clue about these kinds of things. Many thanks in advance!
  7. Tha Thanks, I’ll look for that setting when I get home! Much appreciated!
  8. Hi, does anyone have that problem? My Variax works with AmpliTube inside Reaper, but not in stand-alone for AmpliTube. It works just fine in my stand-alones for BIAS, TH-U, Tonebridge, JamVox, GuitarRig5, Revalver4, GTR, and VStompAmp. ALL WORK!!!! Just not AT4?!?!?! Does anyone know what the issue is or why it would be having that problem? Or does anyone use AT4 standalone just fine? The reason I need the standalone is for slowing solos down for learning. Thanks in advance!
  9. I think you can only “Restore Factory Setlists.” That will reset everything, but you lose everything you created yourself. All the fixes they sent me in an email did nothing, the way I wrote was the only way it fixed it for me. Luckily I always save all settings to Library and to my hard drive. Just took a few minutes to reload everything.
  10. For any others that have this issue, I kind of found a "fix." Go to Settings > Presets/IRs > Restore Factory Setlists. Deletes all presets and you have to reinstall your own presets. For me, just clicking Restore Factory Settings did nothing, as when I clicked it it didn't even respond. This plugin needs some serious work. Glad I have all my presets backed up on iCloud.
  11. Anyone have a fix for the yellow picks (not loading presets) in Native? Any help would be appreciated. Line 6 told me to turn off my internet and reload the plugin and sign in... Did nothing. Line 6 told me to fully delete Helix and re-install... did nothing. I have it on both my macs, one osx 10.14 and one on 10.15. They both stopped working at the same time. I really don't get how a full delete and reinstall can't fix the problem, I guess they couldn't go the same route as all the other companies and actually make Helix into a full app that can easily be deleted. I'm assuming the error persists because somewhere in the computer there is some tiny little file that still links to the old erred version. One of the most expensive guitar softwares and apparently one of the most unusable. Pretty upsetting to pay $400 for a software that doesn't even work. I guess Amplitube will be getting more money from me in the future.
  12. Right on, yeah I think I'm gonna go with a similar setup! Much appreciated!
  13. Thank you too! That's exactly what I wanted to hear! I'll definitely be looking at 5" since I would imagine 8" is probably too big for what I actually need! Appreciate it!
  14. Thanks! Perfect! Glad to hear 5" can be enough! Seemed like nobody ever mentioned them so I was scared to buy first lol.
