  1. You can’t change the delay time from a note value to a millisecond value per snapshot. That’s a preset setting. You can change the note value per snapshot if you want, though. You can also change the tempo per snapshot if you want.
  2. The Helix uses component level modeling as well. The modeling teams for Line 6 and the Yamaha products are really two separate things. I believe most of the Yamaha development takes place in Japan with some in Europe. Pretty much all of the Line 6 engineering team is in California. There is a small contingent in Vancouver as well. But the way that Yamaha handles it subsidiaries is a pretty hands-off manner. There's been some cross-pollination, but that's kind of the exception, not the rule. I'd also add, though, that a lot of the dynamic perception you're talking about comes down to the playback system, perhaps even more than the modeling itself. So comparing a modeling amp to a standalone modeler isn't necessarily apples to apples.
  3. Not sure why you're getting that message, but M1 support was added in the 3.15 update. It could be the installer runs on Rosetta. I do believe HX Edit needs Rosetta to run, though.
  4. No. There are few products on the market that have attempted to allow that sort of thing, but they are pretty limited. It’s not a simple thing to port a VST plug-in into a piece of hardware.
  5. It’s not really that simple. It means a good bit of redesign, and it means updating the DSP tables for an updated device. It would add a good bit of complication to preset sharing and the Marketplace, as it’s possible that presets created on a “turbo” Helix or whatever might not work on the original… Anyway, I don’t think Line 6 has any plans for these sorts of incremental upgrades. Also, consider that Line 6 just gave everyone what essentially is a free DSP upgrade with the way the new cab and IR blocks are processed in the 3.50 update. The new single cab block uses about 10% of the DSP of what the Legacy cab block used, and the same sort of DSP savings goes for IRS as well.
  6. I am doubtful that there's a meaningful sound difference. Even if you have IRs that were actually shot at 96kHz (which is a big if, as it's very possible that IR makers work at 48kHz and upsample), what that means practical terms is you're increasing the bandwidth to include sonic information up to 48kHz. There's going to be very little sonic information from a guitar speaker above 10KHz, let alone above 20kHz... IR processing is a linear function, so things like improved aliasing performance, which can benefit from higher sampling rates, don't come into play.
  7. Native has been compatible with the M1 processors for a long time now.
  8. This is kind of a confusing post... Monkey is the updater for the HD Pro. I'm confused as to whether you're actually able to run Monkey or not, because in your second sentence you talk about downloading the software via Monkey, but then later on you say you can't find Monkey... But the long and short of it is - just run Monkey. It will guide you through everything you need to do.
  9. It looks like you have the old factory presets still. In order to get the new ones, you need to de-select the FACTORY1 setlist from the backup when doing the Restore from Backup part of the update process (this would be after you do the Factory Reset). That way the new presets in that setlist will remain while all the other presets in your other setlist will get overwritten with whatever was on your your unit prior to updating.
  10. Personally, I’d automate those changes with MIDI and not even have the guy stepping on anything while recording. That way he can just focus on his playing and singing.
  11. Check out the input block. Make sure the input is set to Guitar + Wireless.
  12. What are you saying is happening, exactly? The notes from the 3 highest strings are cutting out? I don’t really see how that could be a Helix issue…
  13. It’s not just holding down the footswitches - you have to hold them down while powering up. Hold down FS6 & FS12 while powering up to put the unit into Update Mode. Use Line 6 Updater to do the update.
  14. There’s no could about it… It is Yamaha’s choice. Yamaha controls all of the Line 6’s international distribution and set all those policies.
  15. I mean, there’s no conspiracy or anything… They’re just having trouble making the controller because of parts shortages. It happens. I had a vendor on a project I’m working on recently tell me they couldn’t ship a certain light fixture for 48 weeks. If there is stock in Europe and they’re not allowed to ship it, that would be coming from the higher ups at Yamaha. It’s probably not something Line 6 has any say over.
  16. You need to assign parameters you want to change per snapshot to the Snapshots controller. Right click on them in HX Edit and select Snapshots.
  17. Uh, what are you taking about? All of the manuals for discontinued products can be found here: https://line6.com/legacy/
  18. Not sure I understand what you’re asking… You can easily change presets during a show, yes. There will be a short gap in the sound when you change presets, so you might be better off using snapshots rather than presets.
  19. Make sure you have HX Edit closed when running one 6 Updater.
  20. The XT drivers still work through Windows 11, I believe. I just don’t think they updated for the Apple Silicon chips. The XT is a 20 year old product at this point, so I don’t know. Historically, Line 6 has been pretty good at updating drivers. Editors usually have a shorter support cycle, though. One thing to consider is the HD series was originally released in 2010, so it’s already pretty long in the tooth as far as digital gear goes (I realize the HD X series was released later, but it’s still a continuation of the original HD stuff).
  21. Honestly haven’t been paying that much attention to the HD series stuff since the Helix was released, but I assumed the HD X series was discontinued back when the POD Go was released. I do see now that you can still buy the HD Pro X new from some retailers. So it will still have a full warranty in that case.
