  1. Was over on the TGP board and a couple of guys are apparently having the same issue I am with 4K monitors.....got some digging to do
  2. Thanks...going to have to look into the drivers a bit deeper....
  3. Yet again, Hmmmm.....same res on mine. App looks great just can't read the text as the whole thing is so small....will have to play with the driver settings some more....out of curiosity, which video card are you running? Nvidia in mine....
  4. Would love to see ALL the Carol-Ann amps modeled :) but would be happy with only a model of Bonamassa's amp :)
  5. Hmmm....what resolution are you running? I've got a 4K on my 15.7 laptop, which is what I want to use, and can't get the app resolution big enough to be able to read the text without a magnifying glass :( I even used the screen sizing options with no luck. It's better on my desktop as I'm running a 28" screen but even there I can't get the app to scale up like I can with Office and my browsers....normally I can get stuff to size the way I want it but not having any luck with the editor....
  6. Going to try it on my Surface but it has a high res screen too, but not as high as my laptop....fingers crossed :)

    Tuner question

    I find it usable as well...haven't had any issues.
  8. Doesn't work on 4K screens....the portion viewable on the screen just gets smaller....
  9. Shouldn't have to do this and on the 4K laptop screen changing resolution just shrinks how much of the screen is visible so doesn't do you any good....
  10. Downloaded, updated, zero issues...nice! The bad....same old low res user interface.....looks nice but can't read a damn thing because it is designed to specs a decade old....no resolution scaling available....so small on my screen it's unusable.....very disappointing....uninstalling.... :( :( :(
  11. Thanks!! So much in this unit it's hard to catch every little nuance.....I'll look at this when I get home this evening...thanks gain!!

    Tuner question

    I sold my Polytune because I found it inaccurate, especially on low E. Haven't had any issues with the tuner on the Helix and have cross referenced it with my Peterson Strobe clip on tuner...pretty much spot on between the two....
  13. Interesting....have to think that one through a bit more....thanks!
  14. Hi Peter, I'm doing/using everything in your list with great results...However, I'm not sure about the bolded item above....would you mind expanding on that?
  15. How about using an rubber isolation washer between the pedal or Helix and the metal fastener/board? Wouldn't that solve any grounding issues as the units wouldn't be in contact with the board directly? Rubber washers are cheap and readily available in many sizes too....just a thought.

    Tuner Offsets

    I'm officially jealous ;) :D
  17. I believe that on one of the boards, can't remember which, Line 6 said this is on their docket of things to address after the editor was released, but my memory isn't what it used to be so take that with a grain of salt. Doubt this is a hardware limitation but you never know.
  18. Having the same kind of issue all of a sudden with XLR noise.....going to invest in a good Furmann Power Conditioner....buddy of mine has one and he gets zero noise no matter where his rig is plugged in....and his tube amp "hiss" is virtually gone as well....units are a little pricey but they do solve power/noise issues very well...
  19. Your logic seems odd to me....so if you buy a car that is "missing too many important features" do you expect the manufacture just to give those features to you for zip down the road or do you get what you got when you bought it? Not sure what important features Helix is actually missing. It would be NICE if it had more amps and effects but that isn't a must for the Helix to do what it already does very well.....you seem to be equating WANTS to NEEDS more than anything else....if the Helix didn't meet your needs then you should have purchased a unit that did. Why do you think ANY product you purchase should come with years worth of upgrades at no cost? Can't really think of anything I've ever purchased that came with that kind of string to the manufacture and I don't expect it from Line 6 either....IF they provide additional features with new amps and effects, I'm tickled, but outside of software bug fixes I don't expect anything other than what they sold me when I bought the Helix, and which I'm very satisfied with....
  20. And believe the FX II variations have been out for quite a while now....so when the FX III hits the streets my guess is upgrades for the FX II stop and Fractal continues forward building better and better rigs that get upgrades and you either have to buy up for thousands of dollars or be happy with the FX II you have as it is......now the AX8 isn't a flagship model, and the margins on that unit are probably smaller, so the business model may need to change to support it long term or it's life span is going to have to be shortened...
  21. Yes, extras do attract new customers, however they cost lots of money to develop and at a certain point those new customers can't support the cost of development with everyone else getting freebies off of those sales.....the Helix is the hottest thing on the street, for now, but at some point it won't be due to advancements or competition building the next better mouse trap....a couple of years of freebies is probably realistic, past that I'd expect to be paying something for the cost of new amps, effects, etc. That's not to say Line 6 shouldn't continue to fix bugs as they arise so long as the Helix is in active unit sales....
  22. So they support until obsolescence....on their high ticket units they can probably do what they've been doing with support, on these lower cost units I doubt they will be able to continue with the same business model or the units will just have a shorter time till moved to the obsolescence category....
  23. Not a Fractal user, so do they still provide free upgrades for all their older units or at a certain point does the older gear no longer run the newer engine releases?
  24. Do you expect free upgrades for life from Apple or Microsoft for your computer too? As far as the Axe8, haven't seen any promises of updates for life there either and Fractal is going to be in the same position Line 6 is....we aren't talking about units that cost 200 to produce with the Helix or Axe8, these are probably closer to 800 to produce so both companies are going to need revenue sources at some point to justify upgrades down the road...there is something called payroll they have to meet. No such thing as free anything....
