    Yeah; I just ordered another one from Sweetwater; it will be here tomorrow. And they are currently on sale for addtl $200 off; now $599 new....

    (And with 48mos. financing)


    I paid full price for the first one I bought in 2014. It is now been acting up alot lately; random horrible feedback on all channels; sound dropouts.


    I have had to power off and back on to get the sound to come back. The feed back thing is horrible. You go to adjust one of the gain trims and everything goes crazy screaming feedback.  


    It seems to have an issue with sensing the location of the trim position; or something I dunno.


    The new price seems to indicate it's close out time.. Not sure!


    Hope the new one lasts as long as this one did.. At least it's covered for two years with SW... Might try to get the old one refurbished. 



    I have that same problem with my original StageScape.

    I have 2 news ones that I use as my live mixer and my studio mixer for playing with our live mix.

    Anyway that problem you describe seemed to happen to mine after running sound at a venue with terrible voltage/dirty power.

    During that sound job, and ever since, that mixer does that thing where it sounds like a 747 is flying through the dive bar :)

    It seems that problem is related to phantom power. Adjusting the level on a phantom powered input causes several other channel's level trim to max out full red.

    If you can get away with no phantom power, you may be ok. I never got to troubleshoot it completely, but after 3 more years of using it, I started picking up on the phantom power being the common denominator.

  2. I know this post is old, but I'm looking for a replacement driver for one of my L3s...came back from a charity event I loaned them to with a possibly blown speaker :(


    I need to get the serial numbers off them so I can register them and log a support ticket, but would like to know where all Line 6 parts can be sourced.

    Have not been able to find ANY replacement parts on the Line 6 website. Am I missing something?

  3. It glitches like that when Helix is plugged in or not.

    The USB works well enough for it to recognize Helix and install the driver when I first plug it in.

    It also detects that my Helix firmware is not new enough.

    I tried a few versions of Edit, starting with the first one, which I think was 1.12

    I even tried versions of Helix Application.

    That pic was a closeup of the only part of the window that displays anything at all, and the fuzzy looking 'Account About' menu options are not clickable.


    I give up until I try again with a borrowed laptop.


    Thanks for your help though!

  4. I did everything you said, and it looked like it was working as intended.

    My Helix was recognized, and drivers were installed successfully. Of course my firmware wasn't at least version 2.20, so I closed edit, and ran the updater.

    Same glitched out updater. I tried attaching a pic, if it works you'll see what I'm getting.


    I think I'm going to borrow a laptop... Frustrating.

  5. LMAO

    I just updated my studio rig to Windows 7 from XP purely for the ability to use my newer Line 6 gear, or I'd be using XP for the rest of my life.

    If I get everything running on this, it will be my last version of Windows. Windows 8 and 10 are ghastly. I will never ever use either. Microsoft can bite me lol


    But, great info. Thanks!

  6. OK, so how important is it to be running 'same generation' drivers and apps while trying to update Helix?

    Could my Helix that's still running version 1.04.3 be causing a problem?

    I installed the old (1.04 I think) Helix program, from back before HX Edit existed, and an old version of Helix Updater, trying to get back to how I did an update a couple years ago...still nada. The Updater never finishes loading up, just glitches and sits there...or a windows dialog box pops up to save the day, but doesn't :(


    If anyone remembers that far back, I'd love to know the versions combination necessary to get my Helix into the HX Edit realm!


    I'm here chomping at the bit to try out the new amps and features that I've missed out on :unsure:

  7. Hey Helix gurus,


    I've finally updated my studio PC to Windows 7 :)


    Has anyone ever had an issue with getting the Line 6 Updater to run?

    After several re-installs and attempts all I ever get is a black window with two unclickable menu options up top (Account and File I think), that sometimes pops up a windows dialog box saying a problem occurred, and that windows is trying to correct it, but it never does. I've tried with Helix plugged in, with it not plugged in, in different USB ports, running normal, running as administrator, turned off firewall in case something was getting blocked...


    Can someone point me to a step by step process? I feel like I'm missing something stupid.

    I haven't updated Helix since sometime in 2016, if that matters, maybe an old method is necessary?


    Thanks in advance for any clues!
