I don't know when mine started lagging, but it is very annoying. I set up MIDI commands to switch the channel on my MT15 amp. The midi is sent to a Voodoo Control Switcher, and the voodoo is plugged into the Footswitch input on the back of the amp. When I first set it up, it worked great, instant switching with snapshots. Then at some point, perhaps it was an update. The amp switches practically a full second after I stomp. The snapshot switches instantly, but the amp switch lags. I will try your fix tonight and let you know how it goes. I was thinking maybe it is the Voodoo switcher, but I hate the idea of having to buy a new one for this reason.
You read it. Oh brother. I don’t give a rats ___ “how old the thread is”. When I look up a topic because I need help, theres nothing more annoying than finding insufficient answers in “old theeads”. You really need to retire that old trope response. If it was helpful, it was helpful. End.
Move your cursor to the block that you arent intending to toggle when you use the wah. Click the “three lines” menu button. Click the first knob (Bypss Assign). You’ll probably see that the “switch” is set to “EXP Toe”. Turn the knob left until it is set to “None”. Click Save twice. Now that block will be unaffected by the wah.
So I am planning on using my new helix on stage in front of an MT15 amp and a 2-12 cabinet. With the 4 cable method, I have chosen to use a Helix modelled preamp for certain sounds. Everything sounds great. And when you use the joystick to highlight the pre-amp block, you can turn the dial to audition other pre-amps. That's really cool, BUT, if you aren't careful, and you turn that dial one too far, the block goes right into the POWER AMP models, and you will destroy your ears and possibly your amp and cabinet. Likewise, if you click the joystick and go into the full menu, moving up and down the menu on the right pane hot auditions as you go. This is super dangerous. I have to remember to dial the big volume knob down to zero before each click of the wheel, just in case I accidentally get into the power amp section. This defeats the whole purpose of being able to wheel through the pre-amp models. The only workaround I can think of is to go into the defaults and turn the output to 0.1 an all of the Power Amps and Combos.
I would request that a future Helix update make it so that if you are at the home page of a preset, that highlighting a block and them turning the effect wheel would NOT allow you to change CATEGORIES of effects when you go past the top or bottom of the list. It should instead loop back to the other end of the SAME category of effect. (I'm not sure how to submit user requests....is there somewhere else I should post this? I shook the house pretty hard a few times already, and my ears are still ringing)
Anyone else see Midi transmit lag issues from the Helix LT?
Ok, so apparently an update added the wait time parameter to midi cc, but it wont show as being there until you go in and toggle away and back again and then, boom, its there. Without doing this, your old settings have a null value or something, and apparently null is not very fast. Lol.
