  1. Ha- I did the original JSON edit that was around that kept the EQ and Amp but tried the same thing before and it does indeed work but its flaky beyond 7 effects . Since there isn't a Wah option in the category list I kept that and opened up 9 other slots to try and make a very flexible in-front-of-amp patch for quick jam get togethers which is mainly what I'm using this for over lugging my Helix around. If you try to make a patch with that though that is beyond 7 additional effects it wipes the patch on the unit etc. I made a send/return variant as well but haven't used that one yet. If you use the eq/amp included JSON patch that removes the volume / wah, etc, but keeps the Amp, the Del Sol amp uses very low DSP and is very stable. I'm only 'really' using 4-6 blocks per patch with different mods / delays or grit box types etc. Hoping they actually integrate this feature in lieu of doing this patch mod. Being able to do this was the decision to keep the unit versus letting it go for a different compact option, actually.
  2. As another had said, when looking for a Helix backup, I went with the Pod Go. It's very similar in terms of use, etc so it was a no brainer. I used the JSON patch edit technique to get some active additional blocks on the Go and as stock, there is plenty of DSP for a cover situation. Its to the point where if I'm just going to jam with a bunch of different, non-gig, situations, I just bring the Go with an Amp or No Amp set of patches and it meets the needs. I tried the HX Effects. It definitely seemed very powerful but the Go is sonically similar.
  3. I did the script edit out of the box for one additional free block and it added a huge amount of flexibility. Hope they recognize and add that in some way so future firmware recognizes it and we don't lose it. I use this as a gig backup to the Helix and its not paramount it remains but it made my life in interface usability and getting "close enough" fast a game changer. I've faced a couple DSP challenges that don't dissuade me from thinking differently about patches and getting very close for cover work. Moreover, for the price of the Pod Go to the Helix, that added functionality "felt right" in terms of value/cost/feature set.
  4. This book is great. Especially at digging into effect parameters and some different ways of thinking. Anyone out there who has StudioOne will also get a lot out of that publication CA did also on Sweetwater.
  5. I knew that even before I asked.... I did this after I logged a ticket 4 days prior and after I asked on the Facebook Line 6 Family User Group....
  6. Hi- I’m wondering what the solution was for this for you? I have just developed a similar issue.
  7. I play guitar and bass in bands. So I'll be subjective that while its difficult to replace a bass player, I've done the Local H / Japandroids thing in a couple side projects for that kind of effect. I send my signal to a path and pitch shift down and EQ out as much high end needed to eliminate the transients. Here is a template I did: https://line6.com/customtone/tone/3047449/. I've also gone in other direction, as others have, making pseudo power chords up an octave from a bass line, which is more fun than I can effectively communicate.

    Boss Tera Echo

    The Dynamic split is touchy. Yeah, there's plenty of stuff in there to keep you entertained or to find an acceptable substitute.

    Boss Tera Echo

    I found a way to come close. There is a sweep echo in Helix that works really well. I had a GT-100. I liked it but it didn't compare to the Helix. The biggest thing about the Tera was how your pick attack could drive the effect. I have come really close with a dynamic split ( basically a gate to the effect), the sweep echo and the chamber echo.
  10. Glad it worked for you! My Freq Out sit in its box as well.
  11. Great Update. I refer to your site often. Its a huge help. The fact you have links to original manuals is great value added. Thank you again.
  12. There is an amp in it but the signal path for the Feedbacker circuit is separate. Split A/B before the amp on the expression pedal-Logarithmic Volume also on the exp pedal--Simple Pitch +12-Vtron (start U, End A)- EQ with a mid bump-Red Comp (Max Sustain)-Chamber reverb. The Split B path back to the A path is also before the amp...I'm thinking on tweaking it now that the Helix has more effects available than when I first put it together. It does the job tho. The rest of the band likes it. Its good for a taste.
  13. I recreated the Freqout good enough to get me through a couple songs I needed that edge/into feedback kind of sound without having to bring it to a gig. Its on CustomTone. https://line6.com/customtone/tone/4237762/ . Operates a little bit differently by using the expression pedal but the instructions are in the patch notes and is the "Natural High" setting on the FreqOut. You may have to change outputs. Its set up as a gig patch using Input 2 for a bass path irrelevant to the Guitar Patch on input 1 so ignore that. I tried to use Autoswell on a momentary to bring in the path but that effect is overall frustrating and was better on the Exp pedal. Even with the FreqOut, I like the Exp pedal over a momentary anyway. If there was available LFO assignments like on the Digitech GNX ( maybe even RP) stuff, the path could be automated for a momentary better.

    Helix 2.9

    Seeing a lot of cool immediately usable workflow uses with this update. I'm most excited about the Harmonic Antagonizer model. WOW. I also preordered the POD Go for the more-than-often warm up and cover gig stuff including ease of fit in a carryon. Be interesting to see if the product updates coincide. But I'm not bitching.
