    HX Stomp: Are 6 blocks enough? Not really

    I have helix floor and now stomp - I would say you absolutely don't need more than 6, I can get my self in enough trouble with 3 and you can go from preset to preset without bending down. I note the dead sound issue but in a band context its unlikely to be a problem - I would put an el cap after the stomp if it were a problem to me Cheers All

    Gr55 hook up

    patch change potentially you could I guess use midi note send to play bass notes and guitar/synth on top

    Helix with a Keyboard???

    I believe the picture is showing a midi controller keyboard into the helix - helix is class compliant so you an attach an ios device via usb and play anything from that to any out put I tried this the other week with my ipad and after a bit off messing about I could play any ipad app no problem - garage band instruments - my favourite animoog - thousand of synth apps available Also use it to put up to 4 synths and modules through various effects paths - tap tempo different trem/delay patterns to work over different synth sound for epic soundscapes - snaps shots to mute if needed - no need for a mixer completely change that set up on another patch or midi note to fire off ext synth arps and process that sound via effects a tiny midi keyboard and external synth module can bring so much to a live situation and that could be played by anyone in the band, whilst you play guitar/bass/whatever Cheap Volca units can sound immense if you add some sub and reverb So much to do

    Boss GT1000, like WTF

    I had the GT5 for years and still have a GX700 Great units at the time if you learned how to use them. Still stand up in a band mix and built to last no idea about the new ones though
  7. I used a power engine as I had one around - sounded okay to me I since tried my markbass cmd 121p which I also had around - sounds much better all round

    Helix into MarkBass CMD 121p

    I have previously test my bass through the Helix/Mark Bass Combo - sounds great Also used the MARKbass as emergency keyboard amp at a gig recently I never thought to try guitar - and it works great too Normally use a tech 21 power engine but this might be even better sounding - it is lighted and louder
  9. I put pink tape directly over the in/outs I use - makes everything easier - your idea takes it a step further so I'm on that now

    Dimension chorus

    Many people use the chorus first before O/D pedals, night be worth trying

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    It would be interesting to know if the legacy effects (thank you Line 6 for these) sound any better via Helix improved AD/DA converters than those in the M series?

    Helix into two amps....?

    I ran my helix into /13 CJ11 and 65 amps ventura combos over the weekend - both amps clean Sounded great with just ep boost and stereo space echo
  14. I found the helix loops made my strymon dig sound very dull in comparison to going straight to a real amp Weird

    Brand new to Helix - device not found

    I had this problem updating reboot and then just go into updater and nothing else - plain sailing after that
