    List of DSP usage per model?

    Guys the FB site that hosted that file mentioned might be compromised. I have attached a file that should be helpful. Helix DSP Values.xlsx
  4. Regarding connecting a Line 6 StageSource speaker to a Powercab via L6 Link, the verbiage for the AES/EBU connection in the manual is as follows: "When an AES signal is detected by the first Powercab unit in the chain, the chain will split the signal's left channel going to the first Powercab unit or Line 6 StageSource® speaker and the right channel to the second." When using this configuration, the StageSource has to go before the Powercab. If the Powercab is before the StageSource, the StageSource will not play. We hope to address this in a future update.
  5. You're not helping, you're trolling our company and staff. Your email tells me you're chuckewheat, which is a banned account. If you continue, I will ban your Guitarkyller account also. I'd rather not, as I've seen you post helpful commentary before. Please behave or leave. There will be no other conversation from me.

    Ampeg Acquisition FAQ

    Q: Where will Ampeg be located? A: We will be managing the Ampeg brand from YGG’s headquarters in Calabasas. Yamaha Guitar Group and LOUD will be working together over the next few months to ensure a smooth transition for all customers, dealers, and distributors, after which Ampeg operations will be headquartered in Calabasas, CA at the Yamaha Guitar Group, Inc. offices. Q: How will Ampeg products be sold? A: YGG’s sales team will manage the distribution of Ampeg products like they manage the Line 6 branded products. On day one, we will have a transitional service agreement in place with Loud that will allow existing Ampeg dealers and distributors to continue to order and receive Ampeg products as they had before the acquisition. Q: What if I need technical support on my Ampeg product? A: LOUD will continue to supply support from technicalsupport@loudtechinc.com and their Technical Support Library website during the transition period, after which support will move to YGG’s support team and our website. Q: What if I need service or parts for my Ampeg product? A: Service and parts will continue to be supplied by U.S. and Canadian Ampeg Authorized Service Centers. Customers outside the U.S. and Canada should contact their local distributor.

    Whats going on with G70/G75 in Europe?

    Hi, Alexi. I'm sorry you are caught up in this issue with G70/G75. Although we are actively working on resolving this issue as quickly as we can, we cannot guarantee that you will have the units within four weeks. We ask that you please consider the Relay G50 as a replacement digital wireless system. It has shown to be as roadworthy and perform as reliably as the G70/G75.

    Powercab FAQ

    LINE 6 POWERCAB 112 / POWERCAB 112 PLUS So are these the Helix FRFR speakers we’ve been requesting for, like, years? Nope—Powercab is waaay beyond your bog standard FRFR speaker. When paired with any modeler, it’s an active speaker system that can deliver a much more authentic “amp-in-the-room” playing experience. However, when set to Flat mode (and whether you load IRs into Powercab or your modeler), Powercab amplifies the sound of your presets as they are, similar to a traditional FRFR speaker system—but with the response and feel closer to that of an actual guitar amp. Powercab works as both a backline amp and a wedge speaker, thanks to its integrated kickstands. Oh, and it looks like a guitar amp instead of a PA speaker. So that’s cool. What’s going on under the hood? Powercab doesn’t utilize cab modeling; it has true speaker modeling. Speaker Modeling is Line 6’s proprietary method of duplicating the frequency and behavior of speaker drivers by themselves, independently of the cabinets in which they happen to be loaded. Imagine having an empty 1x12 speaker cabinet where you can swap out the Greenback for a Creamback or a Swamp Thang or an Alnico Blue—instantly—and you’re close. I don’t own Helix. Will Powercab work with my Kemper, Atomic, or Fractal box? Absolutely! And any other modeler as well, including POD HD500X. In fact, if your modeler has a 48kHz AES/EBU out (or S/PDIF out with RCA-to-XLR M adapter), with Powercab 112 Plus you can run everything digitally, with no additional D/A/D conversion or latency. And if your modeler sends MIDI messages, you can even sync Powercab 112 Plus’s presets and user IRs with your modeler or profiler’s presets. Which six speakers are the models based on? Celestion® Vintage 30 Celestion® Greenback 25 Celestion® G12M-65 Jensen® P12Q Eminence® Swamp Thang Patriot Series Celestion® “Blue Bell” Alnico What’s the difference between Powercab 112 and Powercab 112 Plus? Powercab 112 Plus adds the following: 2-inch, 128 x 32-pixel LCD display 128 user preset locations 128 user IR locations MIDI In and Out for recalling presets, IRs, and most parameters (can also be recalled via USB) AES/EBU | L6 LINKTM digital In and Out Additional input for use as an FOH monitor (post-DSP) Powercab Edit connectivity USB audio interface for jamming along with or monitoring backing tracks from your Mac/PC/iOS* device User-selectable mic modeling and distance on the XLR output (Powercab 112’s output uses an SM58 model only) Powercab 112 Plus is about 2 lb (1 kg) heavier *iOS interfacing requires the Apple Camera Connection Kit How loud do they get? 250 watts total. That's 200 watts to the woofer and 50 watts to the compression driver. Wait. 250 watts doesn’t sound like much. Aren’t there other speakers that are thousands of watts? 250 real watts, not marketing watts. The operative spec here is SPL (Sound Pressure Level). Powercab reaches 125dB SPL handily. You should have no problems playing next to the drummer. What’s the reference speaker used? Powercab features a custom designed 8Ω, 12" coaxial speaker that uses a guitar-style cone as opposed to a PA-style cone with a 2” high-temperature voice coil loosely based on the Eminence Beta 12CX format. The 1” compression driver is a Celestion CDX 1-1010, which is used only for Flat mode, monitor feeds, and user IR modes; it’s not utilized at all for speaker models. How do I load IRs into Powercab 112 Plus? From the free Powercab Edit software (Mac/PC) via USB. So I can edit presets via Mac or PC? Yes. Powercab Edit (Mac/PC, available this May from http://line6.com/software/) is used to manage, reorder, backup, import, and export your Powercab 112 Plus presets and IR files (2048-point, 48 kHz .WAV). This allows you to easily create an unlimited collection of presets and IRs stored on your computer, and transfer them as needed to Powercab 112 Plus. Can I get a cover for Powercab? Yes, Powercab covers will be available from select retailers and the Line 6 Store; expected US street price is $69.99. Dimensions/weight? Am I gonna break my back? Powercab 112—22.3”w x 18.2”h x 12”d (33.25 lbs), Powercab 112 Plus—22.3”w x 18.2”h x 12”d (35.5 lbs) What’s the price? Powercab 112—$599.99 US street, Powercab 112 Plus—$799.99 US street When are they shipping? May 2018.

    HX Effects Audio Artifacts

    Hello, all. It’s extremely rare (roughly 0.5%, or 1 out of every 200 HX Effects units sold), but certain specific combinations of HX Effects units populated with out-of-spec parts and amplifiers and/or hookup configurations can manifest notable white noise and/or other unsavory audio artifacts. If your particular setup happens to exhibit this behavior, please contact Line 6 customer support, as we currently have a solution. We have also updated our manufacturing and testing process to ensure no future units exhibit this behavior, regardless of configuration. If you’ve already logged a ticket, sit tight—someone will be contacting you. And if you’re one of the lucky 99.5%, continue playing as normal. Or depending on your chops, maybe better than normal. We apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused. Line 6 Customer Support

  15. Firehawk 1500 includes a Looper, which is accessed using the Line 6 FBV3, allowing you to quickly record, playback and overdub loops. Use the Firehawk Remote app to assign the Looper to one of the FS1-FS5 FBV3 footswitches, change the Looper's position in the signal flow and edit the Looper Volume & EQ parameters as desired. Once assigned to a footswitch, you can access that single footswitch to trigger all the following functions: To start recording: Press the dim white, Looper-assigned footswitch. The footswitch LED will flash red, indicating the Looper is recording. To stop recording: Press the Looper switch again to end recording. The LED will flash green, indicating the Looper is playing back your loop. To overdub on top of your recorded loop: Press the Looper switch again while the loop is playing. The LED will turn orange, indicating it’s in Overdub Mode. To reverse playback of your loop: Press and hold the Looper switch for ~2 seconds while the loop is playing. Press and hold the Looper switch again to revert back to non-reverse playback. To stop Looper playback: Double-tap the Looper footswitch. The LED stops flashing and turns bright white, indicating a loop is stored in memory. Press the Looper footswitch again to restart playback of the stored loop. To delete the recorded loop and start from scratch: Stop the Looper and press and hold the footswitch for ~2 seconds. The LED returns to dim white, indicating there is no loop in memory.
