  1. I just posted on a different thread about how they won't even attempt to fix my G70 that mysteriously developed dropouts and now won't connect at all. After reading the above posts, I see that L6 must be completely turning their back on the G70/75. When I tried to contact people with L6 other than through my support ticket on Facebook, email, etc., I got absolutely no response. It's as if they are pretending the G70 never existed?
  2. Same problem. Started having dropouts over a year ago. Kept getting worse and worse. Opened a ticket. Sent in the unit. This was beginning of August. They told me they couldn't find anything wrong with it and were going to send it back to help me trouble shoot. It was never sent back. After NUMEROUS posts on my ticket, finally in September someone said they'd check with shipping. More messages sent with no response from Line 6. Finally, I JUST received my unit back in the box I sent it to them. After receiving it back, it won't connect at all to either of my two transmitters. It's just a big paperweight. Why did it stop working? Why wouldn't they fix it? It came back worse than when I sent it. There's no way they did extensive testing on it. It's a brick with pretty flashing lights. Also, why have new ones disappeared from retailers when you can still get the older G50/55. Why are they no longer selling or even attempting to service the G70/75??
  3. I love Full Compass. I live about an hour and a half away as well and love the obscure parts you can find. Well, look at that. I never thought to read the writing on the picture. Thanks! Thanks! It probably is oxidation. I (sorry to say) haven't played this guitar much lately. I'll try a little contact cleaner first to see if that clears it up. Might still buy the part just in case...for the future. Thanks everyone!!
  4. Does anyone know if this is the updated switch for the JTV-59? A while ago, I thought I read that L6 had updated the switch because the original ones were failing. My switch is starting to fail. Just wondering if this one is the same or better. Thanks! http://www.fullcompass.com/prod/249357-Line-6-50-02-9331?utm_expid=.m9SVQa56Ry2YH1KHTbShhQ.0&utm_referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fullcompass.com%2Fsearch.php%3Fparent%3D471%26search_simple%3Dtrue%26txtAll%3Djtv-59
  5. Here you go. I'm having the same problem post-2.0 update. Hope this helps. Pitch shift settings 100%, -1, -1, 100%, 0.0db. The Pitch Wham is the first block in the patch. https://soundcloud.com/rod-stoughton/helix-half-step-pitch-shift-bug
  6. Yes! Thanks Line 6 for addressing this so quickly!
  7. From Line 6 today : "We've recently found out that the audio cut out that you've found is due to a firmware issue, not hardware. Currently we are working on a fix that will be released as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience." ​This was posted on the Facebook Helix User's group.
  8. Don't say that! So far (knock on wood) mine has only cut out when using the toe switch. This thing better not become that Farrari that looks amazing in your garage, but you can't drive it anywhere because it might break down...
  9. Aaaaand....there it goes. After changing the wah to mono I played it on and off all morning without it cutting out. Left the unit on. Came back after about 45 minutes, stepped on the (now mono) wah and it died. So that's not the answer. Ugh. Back to square one.
  10. You might be onto something. I checked all my failing patches and somehow I had a stereo Wah for my mono path. I haven't been able to test them extensively, but I changed them all to mono. It doesn't really explain why only a reboot brings back the sound, as you would think turning the wah block off would simply restore the signal path. Perhaps it's a firmware bug? I'll keep everyone posted as I do more testing.
  11. Is this happening to any of you? https://youtu.be/PxjLhQskBOs
  12. I read somewhere the helix master volume should be turned up to 10 which is essentially unity gain. When I first plugged Helix into a board, I had a lot of hiss. I had the volume about 50% and consequently, the board's gain was turned way up to get a usable signal - thus a lot of hiss. So then I turned the Helix to 100% and the board's gain way down to compensate. Hiss gone. Here's what I've noticed though, I'm running into a Mackie DL1608. When the phantom power is on, it attenuates my Helix's sound by -10 to -20 and I have to increase the gain to compensate. Turn the phantom power off, and I get a great, strong signal to the board. Apparently the Helix doesn't play well with phantom power.
  13. Ah Ha, I forgot about the whole command center part as I have't done anything with it so far. Thank you so much!!
  14. I know how to rename a strip when assigned to a block/effect. What I can't figure out is when it's only assigned to multiple parameters OF an effect. It just says Multi and when you go to rename it, it's grayed out because there's no block assigned. Make sense?
  15. Has anyone figured out how to customize the scribble strip for a switch that only controls multiple parameters and not blocks. For instance, I always leave reverb on, but one switch controls both decay and mix for two different levels of reverb. Since the switch isn't assigned to a block, I can't figure out how to customize it. Thx!
