  1. Turned out to be user error on another piece of gear. I had disconnected an expression pedal that was controlling volume via MIDI CC and it defaulted to the lowest value. Dumb, dumb, dumb. 2.82 update went without a hitch (after all).
  2. Still troubleshooting but: after just updating to 2.82 all presets (or if I try to create a new preset) are SUPER quiet after the update. Not understanding where this massive volume drop is coming from.
  3. May it operates the same way as the Boss RE-20?: "Relative to whatever the tap delay time is at playback head 1, the tap delay time at playback head 2 is twice that, and the tap delay time at playback head 3 is three times that"
  4. Can anyone tell me what the tape head note values are if the tap tempo value is set to, say, 1/4 note? I'm not getting the interplay between the tap tempo note value and the play heads. Maybe it's not a neat tempo subdivision but a fraction or multiple of the tempo sync value but...I'm not able to get my head around it. Thanks!
  5. So - where I'm at is: I use the input pad on the Helix all the time. On most amp models, I have to hit the upper range of the channel volume (amp setup for clean or edge of breakup gain) to get it to occasionally light up orange (lead/solo volume) and not distort on a low, open E power chord. So when I set up my patch I get the output going until it distorts and then back it off about .5 on the channel volume to give myself some headroom. The last gig I played I got the Powercab volume up to about 3 o'clock for the gig. We are not a loud band but - I wouldn't have run it that loud if the amps had been going to the mains (which they were not). I find the angle of the Powercab is really good - and I can get good monitoring volume without being crazy loud onstage.
  6. I'm experiencing two issues in 2.53 that I'm pretty sure are NOT in my head: Issue experienced while programming presets with H9 being controlled via Helix MIDI for program changes, etc. - At times when switching between snapshots, all Distortion blocks will be turned on, when - previously on that Snapshot, specific Distortion blocks had been assigned/selected - MIDI Program Change messages being sent by Instant Commands on Snapshots are being changed/re-assigned. Most recent time it happened was when I was setting up a new Snapshot to send PC Instant command to select preset on the H9. Where, previously - Snapshots had been setup to send: Snapshot 1: PC 0 Snapshot 2: PC 0 Snapshot 3: PC 1 Snapshot 4: PC 2 After the new Snapshot (6) add been setup to send PC 9; all other Snapshots were now setup to send PC 1
  7. I can confirm that my Helix is sending Program Change messages via Snapshot instant commands using 2.53
  8. I saw a picture of Andy Summers and thought, "Put a chorus on it. Pow...you're done."
  9. Posting this in case it's helpful to anyone...took me most of the day to find a workaround :-) I was trying to figure out how to use MIDI CC from the Helix to control the Performance Switch in the Rotary Algo on my Eventide H9. I could set up a MIDI CC toggle switch and map it to the Performance Switch function, but when I do that - instead of mimicking the Performance Switch 100% (Fast/Slow; hold for Brake) it would only toggle between Fast and Break. BUT - if you assign an expression pedal as MIDI CC controller to the performance switch...it works. Toe down is brake and heel down toggles between Slow/Fast. You can use Min Value 0 and Max Value 127 for full range, but it seems to feel a little better to me if you set the closest possible max/min values for on/of (63 & 64). What David Lynch would call a "happy accident" because I kind of like working it with the expression pedal better than hitting a switch. A little more like a real Leslie. Now...you might ask, why not just assign max/min rotor speeds to the expression pedal and skip the performance switch function altogether? Because it doesn't ramp when you do that. I just glides in between fast and slow and in a rather un-Leslie-like way.
  10. Can the rubber feet on the bottom of the Helix be safely removed by unscrewing them, removing the feet - then replacing the screws? Are there any interior components that are secured by the same screws? I would like to mount my Helix to a Novo 32 Pedaltrain but need to get those rubber feet off to mount it properly. I will place is so the vent is not blocked :)
  11. I'm having trouble getting an external expression pedal to work correctly. Are the Line 6 expression pedals (Line 6 EX-1 or Mission) required to work correctly? When I set a min/max value for the expression pedal both heel and toe end up at the minimum value; it starts a minimum on the heel - through the sweep it will hit the maximum but then after about the halfway point it heads right back to the minimum value. This happens with all three expressions I have tried: Roland RV-5, Moog and Mission EP-1 Maybe I have totally missed something in the documentation about expression pedal requirements/specs but - I thought it was self-calibrating and I thought I had seen 3rd party expressions used with it in some of the videos. Here's a video of my issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kSCQJEPkcU
  12. It seems to me with the first two firmware updates, if you want the new Factory Presets - you are instructed to hold down the switches during startup which clears all user global settings, Setlists, Presets and IR's. Wouldn't it be better just to make the new factory presets available as Setlists for download so that you could import those Setlists individually without re-setting all the global settings, user presets and IR's?
