  1. +1 for Eneloop batteries from me as well. Use them in my XD-V75 mic for several months now - 4 hour gigs with plenty of time left afterward.

    Looking for some guidance

    Richie Castellano does have some great videos showing how he programs different patches with amps versus FRFR, stereo versus mono, snapshots, and more. Very helpful for me. I watched them before taking the leap to a Helix (about a week ago). I've also read a ton on the forum and I'm VERY happy with the tones I'm getting now (using an L3T). I will continue to experiment and I can imagine that I will get even happier as I learn more.

    Strange behaviour - Stage Monitor Feedback Loop

    I agree with @rvroberts. This "sounds" like the sound man's issue, and not yours. Having done sound for my band for a number of years now (I am NO expert though) that this type of squeal sound would be more typical to mic/monitor issues rather than a guitar issue. I think you should be confident moving forward that YOU or your setup are NOT the problem here.
  4. One time I had an issue with the M20D and one of my L3M's during a gig. That one speaker sounded awful. We took a break and I swapped out the cable (was using a short XLR cable versus an AES cable) and the problem has not reoccurred since. It's been at least 2 years. I was not able to recreate the problem with that cable at home so I'm not sure if it was the cable or just that it wasn't properly seated into the speaker. I do wish they would click in as I have had someone accidentally pull one out.

    SD Card 'full' when it's not...

    I ran into this problem. After deleting the files on my Mac, I thought it would free up the space but it did not. Do as Silverhead says or pop the SD card into a PC and you'll see extra directories on there to remove.
  6. I tune my 69 down a half step all the time. I have had it 3 years maybe? Alt tunings all work just fine. I'd say there is something faulty going on.
  7. I have not seen this either nor do I recall seeing this posted before. Not that this is helpful to you. I'm sure that if anyone has seen this, they will respond.
  8. The recording is a live performance (using the M20D) and plenty of pics with my black JTV69. I switched out the neck a couple of years ago. I bought the guitar when they first came out - this was a pre-order. Been using it regularly since then. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzyzDviVRLA
  9. Been doing this for years now without any issues whatsoever. One other thing to be aware of is if you are setting up your own tuning on the fly, where you play the notes you want and save it. It does everything relative to the twelfth fret by default. However, if you are tuned down a 1/2 step, then everything moves one fret. So your "base" becomes the 13th fret instead of the 12th.
  10. We record every gig so that each guy can review their own performance. As one band member says, "tape don't lie". If something doesn't sound right, you have proof of it and you can work on making it better. It certainly does tame some egos.
  11. This describes me to a "T", especially the idiot part. So far so good for me and I've been very happy with my system. Just my 2 cents.
  12. If the bridge was not floating before, when you bent the strings, there was likely no give as the springs were very tight. Now that you have adjusted spring tension, and the bridge floats, the bridge most likely "gives" when you bend, allowing you to bend them easier. However, the pitch will also change in this circumstance, so you would have to bend the strings a bit more to get the same amount of pitch change. If you look at the bridge now when you bend, I suspect that it is reacting to you bends in the slightest way as if you have lightly used the Trem. Have you always played a trem equipped guitar or have you played hard tails before?

    Extending the L6 link range

    There's a topic somewhere here on the forum that describes how to setup your airport express to use the 5Ghz band to reduce the interference you can get from other devices using 2.4Ghz. I also recall Don Boomer saying that this requires more of a line of sight between the iPad and the airport express (so raise it up if you can) but I have found it to be very reliable in my experience. No dropouts like I had early on.

    L3t V L3m

    I am only using them as mains - all controlled from the M20D and the L6 Link. I bought them in case I ever needed to use the mixer in them, kind of a backup or ever did a solo/duo type gig - which I have not done yet - nor do I have any short term plans but maybe someday. If the M20D ever went down during a gig, at least I could run a couple vocal mics out through these and get through the show - without having to bring a backup mixer.

    L3t V L3m

    I have 2 L3t's as mains for my setup. I've never had an issue or worry about the mixer section when mounting them on poles for gigs. They are recessed and aren't in a place you would tend to grab when raising them. As for transportation, I bought some crates online that I use for them. That way they can get slammed around, piled on top of, and I have no worries at all about them.
