    Power Cab 112

    I have mixed feelings about this... Like some others have said... "If I were starting from scratch" these would certainly be in the race. But I've been using my Alto TS10A (the older version of what became the TS210) since my HD500X days. So dropping $1200-$1400 for a pair of new speakers isn't going to happen. Plus I get the added bonus of a small PA when needed with the TS10s. I get that players who are new to the modeling and are coming from the traditional amp world, might look on these with a loving eye. It's a 1x12 cab and that might make it easier to accept than a "FRFR/PA speaker." This is especially true if they have read/bought into the myth that "FRFR can't get you that 'amp in the room sound' dude!" I do think it's a really interesting product. I could see this being used my a traditional guitarist as an easy way to go to a Wet/Dry setup or a Wet/Dry/Wet setup pretty easily.

    Plz forgive if this has been asked.

    I think you are getting confused around the difference between a Snapshot and a Patch/Preset. Snapshots let you change between settings within a patch. For instance, turn on a delay, change the EQ on your amp, and turn on the flanger... all at once with one button click. A Patch/Preset is a set of blocks that define a sound. These can be factory or your own design. So in your case... you can switch between a Factory sound, and another Preset. But Snapshots are to control parameters within a Patch.

    Update PUs in a Standard

    Had a crazy idea this morning.... thought about the idea of putting a set of Flishman Fluence PUs in my Amethyst Standard. While I really dig the modeled sounds, the stock magnetic PUs seem pretty basic. I'm also so used to my MojoTone "Quiet-Coils" in my main guitar, so the single-coil noise is kind of a bummer. However... the Fishmans need 25K pots.... and I don't think you can get a dual pot for the Variax volume with a 25K value for the magnetic PUs. Just thinking out loud.

    I Can Dream, Can't I?

    So much this. By the time I'm on stage... I don't want to be thinking about anything other than playing my best. Tweaking fx at the gig is not high on my list.

    Migrate to new computer

    Download: HX Edit HX Edit Version 2.51 Released 2/7/18 If your Helix is already up-to-date- with the 2.5 firmware, then a new copy of HX EDIT is all you need to download. Download it and Install it - all WITHOUT the Helix connected. Once it's full installed, connect your Helix and you can backup/transfer all of your patches.

    Traveling (flying) with Helix LT

    Given the size of baggage they do let people in the cabin with (when ANYONE could see that it's bigger than the "allotted size" for carry-on)... I would bet you would be OK. If you wear it as a backpack while you get on the plane... I don't think it will even phase them. Going to put this all to the test in August with a trip to upstate NY.

    Newbie searching forum for answers

    Welcome aboard. I'm a long time Line 6 user (back to the AxSys 212) days), and I've never had an issues getting good tones. Of course over the years, I've been happy with the updates Line 6 has made. I'm currently using the Helix and am getting some of the best tones I have ever had. I'm just getting started with the Variax, but I've already found a few songs with the band that I can use it on. It's a pretty amazing bit of kit!

    Pedal Steel effect

    OK... yours sound MUCH smoother than my attempt did. Care to share your secret sauce?

    Pedal Steel effect

    You can assign a Exp Pedal to the B string "pitch" when using the Variax, but it's just OK. When the string is "bending" you get some artifacts going on - fine when it's at normal pitch or raised.

    Kinda lazy...your top preset purchases?

    I just bought the King's X patches from Matt Chalk - £0.99 each I haven't had a chance to take them for a drive just yet, but really dig them in the demo - bought both the guitar side and bass. Now if I could just find a Ty Tabor patch for his earlier (Lab Series) era tones, I'd be a happy guy.

    Limited Edition Versions

    I just saw the press release about the Onyx version of the Variax (translucent-black finish over a flamed-maple veneer top) that said they were only making 300. Just curious... does anyone know how many of the Amethyst versions of the Variax were made? Mine is number #125.
