  1. What’s wrong with the lone star for monitoring?
  2. I think the point is not to make every unit sound *exactly* the same, but rather, how easy (or even possible) is it to make a given model sound *good*. in fact, it doesn’t even matter that much if it nails the BE100. As long as it nails your tone soul ;) that being said, this was a very interesting experiment. Thanks Jon,
  3. And just to clarify, this is not a “request”. I don’t currently use snapshots, but as I try to streamline my setup, this is one question that popped up. I can definitely see cards where I have a few snapshots (clean/dirty for instance) and more than four effects I might want to toggle on and off manually, where some would apply more to one snapshot than others. there are many ways to know the cat; I was curious is this case was possible.
  4. I absolutely understand that. But since you can change what effects are active between snapshots, I thought maybe you could also change their FS assignment. As in, I’d like different stomboxes to be expose on the footswitches on different snapshots. Obviously, those foorswitches are all in the same presets.
  5. That’s what I thought, but I was keeping my fingers crossed :/ thanks!
  6. This is something I could try, but I figured I’d ask you awesome helixers. In the 4 stomp/4 snaps mode, can I assign different stompbox to a given footswitch per snapshot? For instance (super simplified) can i assign the first stompbox switch to an ID in snap 1, and the same to a delay in snap 2? Thanks in advance.
  7. I’m a brand new helix/headrush frfr user. It sounds to me like you’re thinking about this way too hard :). The FRFR speaker/amp are the best way to reproduce and deliver a modeler’s tone. It essentially, they’re no different than what your regular amp would do. So yes, you can use it just like an amp. All that matters is that you’re happy with the tone you’re getting. I gigged my helix last week with a crappy little “FRFR” speaker (I only got the headrush a day later alas), it was a small club that doesn’t mix and mix instruments in the PA, so I used it just like an amp. It worked super well. Connecting a FRFR speaker (or helix directly) to the FOH is really just a bonus. But it’s really the same thing as mic’ing the amp to the FOH. Except your tone is already going through an FRFR system so no need for mics or any other “conversion tool”.
  8. Sounds like an Amplifire Box. But it’s not part of the helix family.
  9. There are many variatons, but in this case: guitar > helix > helix 1/4 out into DSL effect loop return.
  10. I did the same :) i think it looks really cool as well.
  11. I agree, obviously. At the very least, it should be clearly documented in the release notes.
  12. If I may ask one stupid question... why play other guitars if you want it to always sound the same? I have never adjusted anything much BUT volume for different guitars. With Amps or modelers. Obviously you’ll have some presets tailored for a specific guitar. But if you use a generic preset with different guitars, embrace the differences.
  13. Is there a product that replaced Gearbox? The driver release fixed the crashing issue,with my POD X3 Pro, but even though guitar tones work fine, I can't get a microphone to work properly. It was easy to see what was going on with Gearbox. Not so much now. Am I supposed to just play wth the POD X3 directly, or is there a new application for it?
  14. Same issue, iMac 2010, Yosemite, POD X3 Pro. Line6: HELP!!!
