    Helix case/bag

    Glad that the top handle isn't stitched to the upper flap, that would have been a tragic design flaw :-) I may have to look into this bag.

    How does the top flap close? Velcro?
  3. Are you trying to use 2048-pt IRs? You can only use one IR of this type per path, so if you have one in path 1, the other one must be in path 2, ie: you must split the signal from the amp before it hits the first IR. There is a template patch in setlist 8 : 01B Parallel Spans, that illustrates the signal path, although it doesn't use IR blocks (But you can add them yourself after each amp block). To access Setlist 8 on the device, push down the Preset wheel, then navigate using the joystick. In the Helix app, you should be able to access it by selecting Setlist 8 in the drop down menu, and then selecting preset 01B.
  4. Agree on cable capacitance and low impedance circuits - but if I understand clay-man correctly, he wishes that the Mags had the same "cable-tone" on the VDI connection he experiences on the 1/4" output. I'd argue it's not a bad idea but it wouldn't be a one-size-fits-all solution (unless you could somehow adjust/defeat it, like on the Relay wireless). How much roll-off is ideal? The flip side to that is, a user that typically plays wirelessly will find the Mags thru a VDI (with roll-off) connection too dark compared to what he's used to. If DSP resources allow it, maybe this could be an added global parameter in Workbench - Ideascale time?
  5. Is it possible that the 1/4" cord you use has so much capacitance, it rolls off too many high frequencies so as to make the model and the mags appear similar? When connecting digitally, there is no such filtering so any tonal differences between mags and models get passed on, with no uniformization. Just a thought...
  6. It wouldn't be 2 amps- it would be the same amp block, but with different settings for each state. You just assign each amp parameter to the same FS (up to 8 parameters can be assigned). For example, Gain: assign to FS 2, min =4.7 (X state) max= 8.3 (Y state) Repeat with B/M/T , Channel volume and if you wish, master, sag, presence etc... up to 8 parameters. Now your FS2 will toggle between the 2 sets of values.
  7. Ahh... Neither feature (X-Y block state and 2 splits per path) is possible (as of now) Not exactly what you want to do, but you can easily create an X-Y state within the same amp model though...
  8. Yes, if you make the amp block the FIRST block in Path 2. Input > split 1a anb 1b >merge at end of path 1 chain> route to path 2> AMP> split 2a and 2 b> merge before output.
  9. You should be good to go - 1a ---> 2a and 1b---->2b, your IRs are on discrete, parallel paths.
  10. You can load (Non-Ultra res) Fractal IRs but you have to convert them first. Ownhammer has a free utility on their website that converts .syx (Fractal) to .wav ...but it's a little dodgy with long IRs. I've loaded Ownhammer IRs into my Helix and it's painless process. I agree with Phil, the HX cabs are more than up to the task - at this point, you're arguing "different" rather "better" tones, and playing the IR hunting game can be a very deep rabbit hole. Most users will be very happy with the internal cabs, i suspect.
