  1. Thank you so much! I didn't want the interwebs laughing at me.
  2. I am wanting to update to update to 2.92 from 2.82. The first step is to update to 2.90. I cannot find 2.90. I have installed HX Edit 2.90 and Line6 Updater lists 2.82- 2.91- 2.92. 2.91 also states 2.90 as the first step. Can I update straight from 2.82 to 2.91 or do I need to find the flash file for 2.90 and update local file? Thanks!!!! Tom
  3. Just added a request for the ADA MB-1 Bass preamp for the Bassists out there... vote it up.. My son and I were listening to Les Claypool and I was telling about the preamp. I still play through my ADA MP-1. Love it. http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/ADA-MB-1-Bass-Preamp/832526-23508?submitted=1
  4. Hmm... both Mesa V:25 and a Mini Rect. seem to be having the channel switching issue. This is three different people and now 4 different amps. Not a faulty Helix at this point. Something just not jiving.. maybe it is a voltage issue as DI suggested elsewhere. I am very interested to know what's the issue. I am sure it'll turn up soon.

    Custom Tones

    Also looks like Line 6 has it working on Custom Tone.

    Custom Tones

    When you upload to custom tone it seems to ID the file and parse it. The .hlx files seem to just be txt based information. I have the preset on www.helix.com as .hlx files or you can just download them from custom tone and rename the .l6t to .hlx. DI said they were still tweaking it.
  7. Thanks! I cannot wait to get mine :) Keep the feedback and reviews coming!

    It shipped!

    looks like Sweetwater has now got the goods :)
  9. There is a Helix branded bag that Line 6 will offer. I am not sure what to use yet. I am going to wait and check out the Line 6 Bag. It is a backpack and supposed to be really heavy duty.
  10. Bryon, If I had to guess, the reason why it is not working is because you are not understanding how it is supposed to work. The 4CM, while it is actually simple, is something that seems more complex and can take a bit to wrap the head around. it did for me. If you know how to assign switches then you should be able to get this working. I would start with a new preset and simply add an amp and the appropriate loop blocks... then visualize the flow of signal... like this -- Guitar -> Helix -> any blocks before your actual amp's preamp -> send #1 -> Amp input -> Amp Preamp with all the controls -> Amp send -> Helix return #1 -> amp block and any blocks you want after your amp's preamp -> Helix main out -> Amp return -> power amp -> speakers So when you disable the loop on the helix in a given patch the signal now looks like this -- Guitar -> Helix -> any blocks before your actual amp's preamp -> send #1 -> Amp input -> Amp Preamp with all the controls -> Amp send -> Helix return #1 -> amp block and any blocks you want after your amp's preamp -> Helix main out -> Amp return -> power amp -> speakers Therefore you have only modeler with no preamp controls--- When you enable the loop and disable the amp model it looks like this --- Guitar -> Helix -> any blocks before your actual amp's preamp -> send #1 -> Amp input -> Amp Preamp with all the controls -> Amp send -> Helix return #1 -> amp block and any blocks you want after your amp's preamp -> Helix main out -> Amp return -> power amp -> speakers You now have control over your preamp AND all the effects in the blocks before the preamp and after the preamp without the amp model. ok... with that flow in mind it works like this -- Patch setup like above -- button 1 = Loop #1 engaged Amp Model off / Button 2 = Loop disabled Amp model on There may be more ways to do this but the idea is constant -- I honesty hope this helps.
  11. "If your Multi FX has amp modelling built in, you can choose to use the modelled preamp instead of the Amp’s preamp. Better still, you can switch between the modelled and amplifier preamps by switching the MultiFX FXloop off and the Amp modelling on. This can all be configured at the MultiFX and switched in/out like any other patch." I would think you need to setup two stompswitches -- one that turns loop #1 off and engages the amp model -- This allows you to use the power amp section and bypass the preamp section on the legacy one that turns loop #1 on and disables the amp model -- this would allow you to use the preamp and power amp section on the carvin. Loop mix should set at 100% Again this is general.. but once you visualize the signal flow in your head.. it clicks and you have the AHA moment. Hope that helps.
  12. You should be able to use the Carvin's preamp when using one of the loops in the 4CM -- loop on / amp model off -- in order to use the preamp from the carvin. I used an 11rack in this manner with the legacy with great results. This may help with wrapping your head around how that would work... http://ipb.mediamanhost.com/docs/The%20Four%20Cable%20Method%204CM%20Explained.pdf I do not have my Helix yet so I cannot comment on the specifics or walk through the UI.
  13. The more clips the better!
