  1. Just right click on the file and select Run. You’ll be asked something along the lines of if you’re sure, and you can hit OK.
  2. So are you saying you have the expression pedal plugged into this other MIDI device? What is that device?
  3. Kind of confused as to what you’re saying is going on exactly, but are you using the Amp Out jack, per chance?
  4. You don’t need separate Instant Commands (lightning bolts) for each snapshot. Just use the same one. You can set the program number differently in each one. If you’re using multiple ones, you’re probably confusing the amp by sending multiple PC messages at the same time. So I’d just set your PC messages to 1 in Snapshot 1, 2 in Snapshot 2, etc. This is much easier and faster to do with HX Edit, btw. You can change snapshots while you have the Command Center window open, so you’re not constantly going back and forth.
  5. Is your Stomp running the latest firmware? And have you performed a factory reset since you've gotten it? I'd make sure the firmware was updated and I'd do a factory reset before I spend time troubleshooting anything else.
  6. This already exists, more or less. The Level parameter in the Output Block gives you this ability.

    Amp out

    So do you still have the amp model on? That’s still not going to be ideal going into the Princeton’s input. You’re best bet with that setup would probably be using the PG for effects only and worrying about the amp modeling.
  8. Open up a support ticket with Line 6 customer service. They should be able to solve it pretty quickly. Is your Helix new or used?
  9. It sounds like you’re just clipping whatever input you’re plugging into. What are you connected to?
  10. No, you can use one effect at a time (plus reverb).
  11. It’s a line level signal. Most mixers should be able to accept it. The key is to not have any gain added to the channel at the mixer.
  12. Hmm... If you found the screws of the correct length and thread pitch and gauge, I guess you could attach the pedal with screws. But I wouldn't recommend that. The bottom of the Stomp XL is flat, so it's very easy to attach it to a board with the typical methods - velcro or Dual Lock.
  13. The Helix is your audio device, so you need speakers connected directly to the Helix to hear the output. You won't hear audio through the Mac's speakers.
  14. Yes, you wouldn't want to have the Stomp sending its own MIDI clock signal if it's already passing the signal from the other pedal through.
  15. Yes - deauthorize and reauthorize your computer. The limit on authorizations can be extended if you run into issues with it. It’s an anti-piracy tool, not something that’s meant to limit how many time legit users can install the software.
  16. As long as you’ve has your Stomp for 180 days or more, you can keep Native.
  17. What does the sound coming out of the actual speaker sound like? Sounds like you may be clipping or something, but it’s hard to tell.
  18. I don’t think there’s any actual difference in the terms “preset” and “patch” any more. People basically use them interchangeably now.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
