  1. The Helix doesn’t come with a printed manual. The latest version can be found here: https://line6.com/data/6/0a020a3f041b611d61cac763b/application/pdf/Helix 3.0 Owner's Manual - Rev F - English .pdf
  2. Check to see if it has a volume pedal block and what expression pedal it’s assigned to. Also, sometimes people accidentally save presets with the volume block set to 0.

    Amp IRs

    IRs of amps aren’t a thing. There are cab IRs, and you’ll find IRs of different acoustic instruments (mostly acoustic guitars). But IRs are a linear processing element, so they’re not able to capture what a guitar amp is doing. I’ll say, though, all an acoustic amp is a basically a mini PA system. So you can recreate what it’s doing in the HX Effects by using EQ block and possibly a compressor and chorus block.
  5. I think of a round of conversion as being the full cycle - A/D and D/A, so I’d say you’d have three rounds of conversion in your example, but the way you stated it isn’t wrong. But, yes, if you had both loops active, the signal would be undergoing all the conversions you say. Each full round of conversion adds about 1.5ms of latency (latency would increase if you had digital pedals in the loops, of course).
  6. There’s no way to avoid this, no. If you use snapshots within presets, the transition will be seamless, but switching presets will always give you an audible gap.
  7. Well, it's not a bug. I believe it's a hardware issue. I've seen it once or twice before. It's probably a ribbon cable that was installed incorrectly or something like that.
  8. There’s really nothing I can of that would make the Stomp itself susceptible to vibration like that. Do you have an expression pedal or a MIDI controller connected to it? The fact that the same thing happened with two different units actually makes me think it’s probably not something with the Stomp itself. I have read various reports over the years of audio dropouts, but none in this particular manner… How are you powering them?
  9. There’s actually two versions of it on the Helix - the HX version called “Bleat Chop Trem” and the Legacy version mentioned above.
  10. If you use one of the compatible FBV controllers, there’s an expression pedal.
  11. The POD Go won’t be powered by the USB connection, if that’s what you’re asking. Yes, you need to have the power supply connected.
  12. I believe it’s just a limitation built into to the DT amps. If you look at how the DT amps integrated with the POD HD series, you’ll see that it was the same way. When the amp is set to channel B, none of the commands from L6 Link affect it.
  13. When you connected to the amp at the store, we’re you using the same USB cable you used at home?
  14. Well, Topology is a power amp setting, not a preamp setting. So being able to choose the power amp topology is the whole point of using the DT with L6 link. You can use whatever amp model you want as the preamp, and then you customize the power amp accordingly. Although, the topology/voicing switch on the DT itself changes both the preamp and power at the same, the preamp is just the digital model, the power amp is the actual relays switching the power tube configuration.
