  1. This was an issue I had last year, did you see the issue I asked about today? Its the power adapter plug into the unit. It seems when you wiggle it, the HX EFFECTS restarts
  2. I've been messing with an iPad running Quantiloop plugged into the USB port. Pretty amazing looping app. Yes, it would be nice to allow the LOOPER button on Helix to open up a page of Quantiloop controls.
  3. SOLVED: I tried every trick I could to hard reset the HX. Finally, I managed by turning on the power while holding down different pedal and button combinations. It rebooted in it's original state and I was able to update the firmware to 2.50.0 Hold down the two middle foot switches on the bottom row while powering up. This should reset the HX.
  4. HX EFFECTS is stuck in an endless boot screen showing firmware 2.40.0
  5. I've been looking at the new Seymour Duncan 170 and the Fryette Power Station as potential solutions in that regard.
  6. I haven't tried that, but it sounds great in 4CM with the Mesa Boogie Mark V 25. I look into a clean tube power amp
  7. Yeah, I've seen this requested in the Ideascale and in one of the Helix threads. Seems like a no-brainer. If I could ideal in the amps at my levels each time it would work perfectly. That said, the Bias Amp Head is a great gadget. I had a Kemper awhile back, and though the tones can't be beaten, it just didn't behave like an amp through my guitar cab. The Bias Amp Head is like having countless real amp heads at your fingertips. The Helix does as well, but like I said, the levels are all over the place.
  8. Thanks MusicLaw. I've flipped back and forth between the Line and Instrument levels to see if I get more consistency. I think Line Level with the master volume know set to 50% has given me the most consistency I'll try the levels on the Send/Return and Output Blocks. I appreciate the response.
  9. Besides the obvious. I'm wondering if there isn't a more elegant solution for those of us who don't like mic'd cab sim sound, but loved everything else. Scrolling through amp models is always going to be chaos even with the saved presets you mention.
  10. He All, I'm looking for a solution if there is one. I've owned my Helix for 16 months and love it. I don't, however, love FRFR solutions for amplification. I prefer the sound of my 2x12 guitar cabinet. I've been using the 4CM with my Mesa Boogie Mark V 25 and using the fx return as the power amp for the Helix models bypassing cab simulations. This sounds great for the most part, but the volume levels of the preamps are all over the place. I picked up a used Positive Grid Bias Head last week and got a great deal. When the cab simulations are bypassed and it is played through my 2x12, the amps are balanced across the genres. You can dial in drastically different preamps without having to cringe waiting for your ears to be blasted. Is there a way to setup the Helix to behave more like the Bias Head?
  11. Should the 1/4 Out (Cable 4) be INSTRUMENT LEVEL or LINE LEVEL ?
