  1. Thanks for being so clear about updating to the latest Helix 2.81 firmware. My problem is that I can't back up the previous HX edit for my Helix 2.0 because I don't have any HX edit on my Mac. So where can I get the 2.0 compatible HX edit forward to download so I can back up to it, then safely update to 2.81?

      Hi Simon1808,


      Not a problem, other than you didn’t specify if you need v2.0 Edit for Mac OS or a version of Windows. Therefore what you need to do is go to the Line 6 download page and from the “- All Software - ” menu select HX Edit, then from the “ - All OS - “ menu select your operating system, then click on the GO button. This will take you to the relevant page where you need to scroll all the way down through the lists until you arrive at the section marked as Version 2.00 Released 7/6/16. Read, study and inwardly digest the “Read Me” notes, then click the blue button marked “GET DOWNLOAD” and wait for the 87MB file to land on your computer. Simple. Then proceed with caution!


      Hope this helps / makes sense

      Good luck and enjoy your Helix.

      Thanks Datacommando. (Actually, MacOSX) :-) The problem I had (I guess others might have, too), is  not scrolling down to the bottom of the page - because it's headed so it looks like only the latest download. Thanks again.

      No problem, happy to help. As you now know it’s quite away down the page and if you don’t know where find it, it’s easy to miss. The whole download area is confusing. Recently I had someone contact me because while looking for HX Edit by mistake they also selected Helix from under the “- All Software -“ section. Disaster! Their download turned out to be the now obsolete, very first librarian software named “Helix”. All good fun.


      Happy trails.
