  1. Had AX2 and still got AX8 but Helix is preferred. Truth mate they can both sound pretty much the same, always found Fractal too boomy and bassy but the tweaking and learning curve is totally in the NASA hemisphere, so don't expect great results at first. Honestly not joking. Much more tweaking on the Fractal, even changing tubes!! Good luck though
  2. Yes mate thats why I'm confused. Huge red type in red says update. My HX says it's the current version?
  3. Oh blimey sorry mate, I did search honest
  4. Just noticed after I updated on my Mac with HX Edit fully up to date. It states it's 3.15 but no Ventoux or other new features. I've Googled but no help. Any ideas please? Thank you
  5. Fella none of your patches work on Helix. Just tried Limelight
  6. still dont get why setlist management was easier and superior on HD500 from ten year s ago
  7. Mate no offence. I have upgraded every time it comes around. My preset and setlists are pretty much the same. Factory 1 1A is a Fender Twin Rev preset. Is there a US Princess preset? Thank you
  8. Cheers mate, I’ve had Helix for three years now so I can make the preset. Just thought maybe they added one in the new presets of 3.0. Many thanks mate. Sure I saw a place where the factory presets were listed with amp for reference
  9. Crazy but I’m sure it exists somewhere but I’m trying to find factory presets by amp used. I’ve searched but can’t find anything. Particularly the new Princeton model, I thought it had a preset but cannot find it anywhere. Amp is US Princess. Thanks for any help
  10. You’re a true life saver mate. Many thanks, I salute you!
  11. Backed up like a good boy before I updated to 3.0 and same with edit. But now I go to backup on my Apple Air from Helix Edit, it’s greyed out. Single presets are fine, but won’t let me import backup. I’m sure I know how to do it. I’ve done it before, I just imported and all was fine. But I’m stuck here. Can anyone help please?
  12. Curious but I have used FRFR for ages. I use QSC K12 as my amp speaker. I also use a variety of impulses from all brands, but my query is, which in your opinion is the best IR for a QSC through Helix? I see 1x12, 2x12, 4x12 and still wonder which you think sounds best. Reason is, I can’t tell much difference. I’m talking classic rock or 80’s metal, funk and clean. I’ve never found a thread on which IR is best suited. As I said, my FRFR is my amp speaker, not just monitor. Thanks for any help
  13. Oh blimey! Thank you very much, I’ll try later mate
  14. I have purchased some presets, one being the John Pettruci ML Sound Lab. I don’t use snapshots as I prefer stomp. Can I change a snapshot preset so it works in stomp mode. I know I lose the different shots, but can it be done. Many thanks
  15. I also own an AX8. Fractal DO updates too. GOOD ones..Actually many now do. Fanboys on Fractal kill me.....Please don't tell me you are satisfied. Yes it's free..and?
  16. Okay I downloaded my Freman bundle so now have factory setlists 1 and 2. With Freman now have User 1 and 2. The side bar for some reason will not scroll with mouse or any other key. It seems stuck. It scrolls down below User 3 and 4 etc. But will not slide up. I can clearly see the bar should scroll to reveal User 1 and 2 Setlists but it doesn’t move. Is this a known problem? I have to access from the unit. Don’t know how but will try. I closed editor and reopened it. Same. The setlist scroll doesn’t move and is stuck. Any help please is much welcomed. Seems really strange
  17. Opposite, just got Helix, as backup to my AX8. Fractal with 250 plus amps, eternal update and tone. Helix out of the box great tone in minutes. Fractal customer service totally kicks Line 6 service into touch. Before the comments fly, HD500 HD500X Bass XT Variax bass, Variax 700. You can't say I haven't tried. Let's see how this goes. Tonewise though, not a lot you haven't heard. Both units are awesome, but the learning curve for Fractal is serious rocket science. And I had the AX2 until three months ago! Honest truth 250 amps? If you want obscure and for me unusable Fractal have the edge. I'm keeping both but my eye on on Line 6 customer service if I need help.
  18. AX8 man....gonna find out what this HELIX is in couple of days. AX8 is a monster, but I had an HD500X so curious. If one dies, Ive got a standby I suppose. Can't wait. Question though. I read that the GT 1000 not all the amps are ARES. Are there amps from the HD series on HELIX? or completely rebuilt from scratch?
  19. Bit bitter there sweetie?...Why cant you afford one? thats the usual case
  20. How can I show I already registered nearly six products. Cant be bothered as it shows only two now. Why? it worked yesterday. Today it doesnt. Open a ticket. Problems can arise and thats cool. These lot make it a habit
  21. Fed up is exactly what I mean. Line 6 software. Wrong password? If youre happy? Good luck
  22. Funny but muppets like you are on the Fractal forum too. Read it prat. My Varaiax 700 doesnt work anymore and Ive tried on here. Now can't use Customtone. Yeah, after having Variax 700, Variax Bass, HD500, HD500X, Bass POD..yeah bet theyre ecstatic. But thats why we're on here and not the Boss GT..Oh? Where did that go?
  23. Had a HD500 seven years ago..Fractal ever since but bought HD500X as back up. I have been downloading custome tone tone forever. This afternoon despite it showing I own HD500x and amp packs in my purchases. It wont let me download jack. Why? I have to register product again. Honest? I cant be bothered anymore. Even when I logged in to customtone, an error showed, but still logged me in. This time it won't let me download any patches. LINE 6..listen. My Variax is for sale as I cannot use the edit anymore ( cant even remember the name) now this. You don't care. New customers are more valued than loyal long time. You can shove your proucts. Was even stupid enough to look at the HELIX. I'm not a Fractal fanboy, but the software works. End of
  24. Yeah cheers mate, that’s what I thought. So why are some amps middle? Others at either end of chain?
