  1. Hmmmmm. Interesting. I hadn't looked at the new manual, thanks for that. It appears there has been an oversight. You might want to write this one in. Powercab+ Master Volume MIDI CC#7. Edit: Not enabling control of the Powercab+ Master Volume via L6 Link is my big disappointment in the latest updates.
  2. Please, don't take my word for it. It's on page 13 in the manual in the MIDI CC - Global Functions chart, MIDI CC#7. It's functionally different than controlling the Level parameter in the output block because it doesn't affect the level going to the FOH or DAW or whatever from the XLR output of the Powercab+ and it doesn't affect gain staging.
  3. Oh, but you can. I've been doing it since I got the Powercab+. I use an exp pedal and it's awesome. MIDI CC#7.
  4. You can't control Powercab+ Master Volume via L6 Link.
  5. Yes, you can do that via L6 Link per Snapshot or per Preset in the output block.
  6. Most everything described above requires a MIDI cable. There is now, with 2.8, limited control of Powercab+ via L6 link, which is great if you don't need everything MIDI has to offer.
  7. What channel is HX Effects on? All devices must be on different channels. Example: JVM Ch 2, Bias Ch 1, HX Ch 3.
  8. This bug may or may not have been addressed in 2.8*, I haven't checked. Backup the Preset you are working on. Open that backup .hlx file with any text editor, like TextEdit on Mac. Search for the Snapshot labels within the code and change as desired. Save. Import the backup .hlx file into A NEW SLOT, so you don't mess with the original.
  9. Are both the Helix and the Powercab+ running 2.80 or later?
  10. If you have a Satriani model, that chart should work. Otherwise you will have to use the learn function. You will want to use an Instant Command in Helix. See the Command Center. You probably want to send a CC Toggle.
  11. Hello @PechGehabt, I am having similar troubles as you as I am going through the procedures above. I see where the trouble is. My fault. It seems Helix wants to be picky about saving the settings after each Program number change, for each and every Snapshot. Go to the Command Center and scroll through your Snapshots to see which Program number is being sent for each Snapshot. Change the ones that are wrong and save each Snapshot as you go. I will update the procedures above. Let me know if you get it working.
  12. Hello, Sorry to hear your having troubles. I haven't plugged into the JVM in a while, so give me day or two to check it out.
  13. They can be named anything you want using a text editor, but the only place the name will appear is in HX Edit.
