  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Right on, yeah I think I'm gonna go with a similar setup! Much appreciated!
  5. 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!
  6. Thanks! Perfect! Glad to hear 5" can be enough! Seemed like nobody ever mentioned them so I was scared to buy first lol.
  7. Thanks a lot. I'll definitely check out those Mackie's! That iLoud looks awesome, but a little spendy, I don't play/record professionally so just looking for something that sounds nice but not too expensive. Thanks for the recommendation!
  8. Thanks a lot for the input. I think I'll probably play around with the amps first just to see and then go from there. Appreciate it!
  9. @brue58ski Thanks a lot for the response. I agree, but reading all the different threads just kinda screwed me up since I've never used studio monitors or FRFR speakers lol. Many make it sound like any kind of amp will color the Helix sound, even though my understanding was that acoustic amps are like PA's, especially since the AUX isn't going through the amp, just the speaker, you'd think it would be pretty true to the Helix sound. I guess I'll just have to test it out first. Thanks again for your thoughts!
  10. @rd2rk thanks a lot. I'll keep that in mind. Just worried if the acoustic amp sound won't be as pristine as studio monitors could be. And thanks for the info on the 5" speakers. All the other threads of people asking "what are the best smallest studio monitors?" it seems everyone only responded with 7/8" monitors, not even mentioning 5" monitors, so I got the impression that 5" monitors aren't even something to be considered for at home use lol. I'll definitely feel safer now if I end up going with 5". I would think 50 watts is enough for a small half room..... Thanks again!
  11. Hi all! I'm new Line 6, looking at getting a Helix Floor or LT next month. I've been playing with all the other simulation softwares through my DAW forever, but looking at Helix now so I can also buy the Native. My question is three pronged. I'm sure it's been answered somewhere before, but I couldn't find the specifics I'm looking for in the other threads. Please let me know your opinion or if you've done or used these ways before! 1) Before I look at studio monitors, I'd like to try using my Marshall AS50D acoustic amp with left/right AUX in (which I sometimes run my DAW to in order to play backing tracks. I also have a Fender Mustang II which I only use for playing backing tracks or routing my DAW to come out there through its mono AUX). Would any of these work well? I was always under the assumption acoustic amps were supposed to be like PA speakers, not coloring the sound. It doesn't color my acoustic tone at all, so I assume it does nothing to sound going through the AUX. Do you think I could get a great sound out of either of those through AUX or do you think my settings would be way off if I were to switch it to some other type of speaker if I had to play somewhere else? I ask because I keep reading that FRFR speakers or studio monitors are the way to go because the sounds of the settings won't change much between them and stereo headphones, etc. 2) If the above method is truly considered inferior, what size of powered studio monitor would work well for a spare half bedroom that is cheap? It seems all the other threads many people mention Yamaha HS7/8 or something in that price range, but if I could spend less I would love to. Does anyone think Mackie or Behringer would do alright? I would like to get a sound that is truly representative of what the Helix can do, but hopefully on the cheaper side since I'm not playing/recording professionally. Just something for a hobby. 3) I play in a spare half bedroom. Most of the other threads, everyone mentions 7" or "8 speakers of the different manufacturers. Do they really need to be that big? I see Mackie 4/5 output at 50 watts, KRK Rokit 5 at 55 watts etc. Wouldn't 50 watts be enough for a small bedroom? Or do you really need the 7 or 8 inch speakers? If I went with 5 inch speakers would there be a lot of distortion/crackles if I pushed the volume on that? Or would mid volume for a 5 inch monitor be enough for a small room? Sorry for all the questions and lengths of them, but I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has any first hand experience with those issues and could share. Thank you in advance!
