  1. Mini Amp Gizmo + MB Mk V worked perfecly for me. As a side note sold MkV got an JVM410H then sold it. Total OCD.
  2. I use a gain block. I realize that if i use the looper then you need to have the output block levels all the same if you want to change preset and keep your loop at the same level.
  3. Well! jdomine! It's exactly that! You nailed it! The looper did indeed break all my presets. The good news is I never use it live but only to goof around at home. So goodbye loopers for now. From the little that I tried again, if the looper is on the 2B path (where I suppose it's fairly often) the whole of 2B path is broken. Thanks so much for taking the time trying the preset. At least I can now live with 2.8 and enjoy the novelties. I have a ticket opened with line 6 I'll make sure they know about this issue. Yes!! yes!! yes!!!
  4. Ha! Don't take it wrong but I'm delighted you have this issue. Looks strangely related to my problem 2B path disappearing and might prove I'm not crazy. I'have had issues with upgrading to 2.8, USB, driver and such. Stories with PC. That's now a fact of life. I suceeded in the and and I've noticed all my presets were not behaving properly. Went back to 2.71 in an instant. But then I did not take time to investigated AND KOT, and those new apms did sound interesting. Wiped out everything before the 2e upgrade to 2.8. Blank slate. I built this preset (FRESH 2.8.hlx) from scratch to reproduce quickly my presets I used with 2.71 and there it is again. No 2B path.! Can't blame a corrupt preset, backup or whatever. Since all my song based presets are from the same template, all my presets would have to be rebuilt. That why I'm still on 2.71. I will trying again when I get my HELIX from the shop for a faulty joystick.
  5. So it might be a problem with the Y splits after all. I wish this is solve because, at the moment, 2.8 is unusable for me.
  6. I probably shouldn't have gone there. I was merely trying to describe a way to observe to problem in a reproductible way. In a nutshel 2B stop working. The way I use 2B is always with a Y A/B at 100 % at the end of 2A. Haven't check othet way to feed 2B. It'a may be realted more on the Y A/B defect. Just try the patch and settle the issue I'b be grateful. Only need to save it during while using it. To induced the problem. I think.
  7. Ideascale ismore like a popularity contest. It does not address properly little functional genius idea or irritating glitch. No rant just an observation of 3.5 year, IMHO.
  8. I did! First post up FRESH 2.8 Cab.hlx It's a similar preset that use a Cab and expression pedal 1 only. Here it is again. Copy the preset, for example to 4A, 4B, 4C and 4D for example. After copying 4D, the 4A, 4B and 4C will be silent forever. To get 4D to work again you need to select a blank New preset in 5A and then back to 4D. Thanks for looking into it. Much appreciated. FRESH 2.8 Cab.hlx
  9. Sorry we're labeling things differently. It was my understanding that from the top down Guitar in -> 1A 1B 2A 2B => XLR The dynamic bloc before the delay is a noise gate that works alright on 2A. I can't easily do more test since I went back to 2.71 Amazon will ship a new USB cable tomorow! (Ya I had problem with that too...8-| )
  10. That noise gate is on 2A not 2B has Verb, EQ, Volumes, Looper and out to XLR . No problem with 2A except for the Y A/B split
  11. Phil! You guessed wrong but its not forbidden. Last one is expression, one is volume boost assigne to a footswitch and thirs is another gain to balanced things up because I was probably lazy in this case. The minute Ii loose the 2B path my patch turn silent because I've set the output of 2A to -120 dB to make it obvius. Then I check Y A/B and it still indicate B 100%, it is activated, such nothing I can do to bring it back to life. And! It's reproductible. Copy a similar preset to 4A, 4B, 4C and 4D for exemple. After copying 4D, the 4A, 4B and 4C will be silent forever. To get 4D to work again you need to select a blank New preset in 5A and then back to 4D. No quite what you want for a gig.
  12. I opened a ticket with Line 6 I'll keep you posted.
  13. Bump! Really? Anybody's using 2B? Just to tell you the extent of my experimenting. - I wiped out all with a reset 5+12 - Reinstalled 2.8 upgrade with no issue in 15 minutes. - loaded preset FRESH 2.8 Cab.hlx from above. - Copy it a few time and you'll see 2B path stop working - I restored my backup from 2.71 -> All my presets have that behavior. - Went back to 2.71 and restored all my presets and all is working like it's supposed to. My conclusion is the hardware is probably OK. I'll get to test that when I get my Helix back since it's in the shop to replace the joystick.
  14. After finaly succeeding to upgrade to 2.8 (I'll recap that ordeal in a later thread) I am now facing a very annoying bug. I usually spread my blocks on all 4 paths. 2 amps in parrallel on first DSP and then serial to feed path 2A with EQs and IR where at the end I have Y A/B 100%B to feed Delays, Reverb and volume pedal. Guess what? More often the none the 2B path disapear. No joke.Sound chain goes out to 2A only. The last Y A/B simply stop working. I've reset the Globals, I wiped out everything and buit a fresh preset from nothing and after 1 hour I started to loose path 2B. What should I do next. I really feel like a beta tester now. I can upgrade a third time. I'm quite good now. I know how to downgrade as well. I got all the glitch and I could'nt believe it. Even the USB saga. Always work from USB at the back for 3.5 years. After half the upgrade it lost connectivity with the HELIX. Had to go finish it off on a Win 7 PC. After all kind of set back I changed USB port and voila! Long story short I now will revert to 2.71 if I can't solve this problem. Here is the preset, make a few copy in a bank you should see what happens. You need an adjacent empty New Preset. I found that scroling to the new preset and back will restore the preset to worki again for a time.... FRESH 2.8 Cab.hlx
  15. Have the same thing. It's like the display does not update anything. The tone changes but nothing visual. No LED Ring, no screen updates, big NaDa! I don't even see the changes on the parameter values when using the 6 encoders or if I change a block status with the BYPASS button. In addition all my presets now have the wah engage by default. And that's all in in the fits 10 minutes. I guess it will take quite a bit of time to iron out this one. My HXEdit does not see the HELIX on my Win 10 all the updates/restore have to be done on my Win 7 PC. It's back to 2.71 for me if I can do it.
  16. Win 10 1903 here. I had the boot failure. Entered update mode message. never recovered from it. After trying all I could read and think. Went to an old Win 7 never touched by Line 6 software and was able to update Helix Floor. Back to Win 10 1903. I see Line 6 driver and the Line 6 Audio driver is also there *and it works). HX Edit 2.0 doest not see the HELIX Floor. Something is definately broken with the driver/Win 10/HX Edit but what to look next. I will have to go to the other Win 7 just to restore my presets. That's a tough updrade. Never had any trouble for the last 3.5 years.
  17. I have to admit... I have not used my JVM410 in more than two years. An external midi controller might be able to do this but it sort of defeat the purpose of a MFX...

    That's it???

    It's all true on both side but let's be objective here, Line 6 has spent a lot more time coding and changing things for their future plans thans fixing the bugs and issues. They have corporate vision for more market shares and all. We can't argue legitimicy in that. BUT, regardless of the outstanding UI and all it still feels a bit like they are beta testing on us BECAUSE of the simple usability issues not being addressed or flatly ignore. I don't care about new amps and gazillion other stuff just make it better, stable, robust, etx. My Helix still freezes to often to my taste...

    That's it???

    Usability issues should also addressed quickly. Almost 3 years now with Helix and the same irritating ways have not being fixed/improved. The cab selection for one. Change cab and you have to redial everything again. Worse with dual cab. Light on/off status keep switching around everytime yoi use HXEditor if you copy presets around. There is more but lets just say it curb my enthusiasm to explore further. I'm happy with the couple of presets i created, which soun killer.
  20. I noticed my post just above. I was also using a TS210. After a year of rescrewing 3x trying to get rid of small rattles by sqeezing foam at strategic places. I bought 2x used DXR10. I must concede. These Yamaha's are in an other class AND heavier of course. They are amazing
  21. Can't believe it"s still with us. Irritating...
