    Helix (Mark 2) ?

    Let's hope that L6 doesn't take the Apple edge in pricing: Charging upwards of 3 times for a product that has similar specs/function/quality as it's competitors while constantly losing the stability edge that it is overwhelmingly praised for. ;)

    new amp models

    like Cruisin said above. The ones that actually know haven't said anything other than new models are coming eventually in future updates. That said, I have hopes, but they are more along the lines of the following: more Engl Diezel Satan XTC More unknown amps like Diamond amps, or Revv amps. More Line 6 originals.

    Helix (Mark 2) ?

    Several more years is good to hear. I would be quite happy if we got another good 3 years from now of real support/updates, and more amp/FX models. Anything more than that I would just consider super extra bonus fun time!

    Stay safe

    Be cautious Be aware Be careful Hopefully, the crews battling this fire get it under control soon.
  5. If any of you guys do studio work, or dabble in recording then I can't recommend Helix Native enough. It is my favorite aspect of the entire Helix lineup. It is the best sounding amp sim vst you can get for under $100. Take advantage. Capitalize on such a great deal.

    Will a headphone upgrade make much difference?

    Coming from the set you have, yea a headphone upgrade will probably yield better results. Speakers are always an important part of the equation. Them being attached to your head doesn't change that fact. I went from HD280 pros to a set of AKG K712 Pro. It is a night & day difference. Matter of fact those K712 Pro are the best I have heard/used. If you were coming from something like the AKG K702 or Q701, then I would say it would be a lateral move at best, and a good chance of a downgrade while wasting money.

    Bass Content

    This past weekend I was dialing in a metal bass guitar tone with the software in my DAW. I have a parallel setup with EQs set to have one path be the lows, and the other path be the signal chain for the mids/highs. I got a decent chain doing this, and was thinking about popping Fabfilter's Saturn in there for a little distortion. However, I opted to try the Helix native with the bass pedals. The Clawthorn was alright but not what I wanted, but as soon as I tried the Obsidian after adjusting parameters I had what I wanted, and didn't even need Saturn. I actually got better results with it than I was expecting from Saturn. So I have to reiterate that the Obsidian pedal is one very nice addition to the Helix for bass work.

    USB interface distortion after upgrade to 2.70.

    IF it only happens in the DAW try this step. I have to do this every time I open FL Studio, and open a project I am working on. Its simple, but it is a true solution for me. Go into the ASIO/Driver section of options in your DAW once you have it open. Choose a different ASIO/driver option. Doesn't really matter which as long as it is a different one that won't immediately crash your DAW. Now only after a few seconds, immediately back to Helix ASIO drivers. Give it a try now. I do this in FL Studio to refresh any under-runs that happen due to loading certain instruments within the project, or a project that is already open. Sometimes if I don't do this, it sounds like static running through a guitar amp. Once I do this everything is clear as day. It only takes a couple of seconds honestly, and learning to work with the kinks/quirks of one's system is part of any audio engineer's trade. Its so habitual for me at this point its just part of the start up process.

    Please Help...Muddy Helix sound...metal palm muting.

    I am glad you were able to work it out. When I first got my Helix I was having woofy-fart problems with my high gain tones with Helix. I haven't been dabbling in mix engineering very long before I got it, and I was mainly just home recording before that with 11R, and Pods. Now, as I have learn to dial in so much over time I have the best guitar tones I have ever dialed in, and I will continue to improve in that regard. Same with Helix Native, better actually with Native cause I can automate almost anything in it. I just recently dialed in a tone with the 1 Engl amp in the Helix (the ANGL METEOR) cause it is quite nice. This is also one reason why I really want them to add another Engl Amp to the Helix.

    So what type of stuff can the Helix now support?

    I saw the same post. Speaking of the screen refresh rate. This is one of the reasons that was explained to me from a few posters why the Helix doesn't have metering, refresh rate of the screen was too slow. So, I am hopeful that this does indeed pave the way for metering, and clip indicators.

    I need to find a way to mount this to the car. Lol
  13. You know I have been thinking. I have seen your posts before quite a few times on here, and you are pretty damn knowledgeable. So I figured I would run this by you. What about a setting/parameter in the cab blocks, and IR blocks of course, that allows for manual adjustment phase alignment. A knob/slider that allows you to set the offset in the cabs so you can blend the phase how you like? Is this a far-fetched idea? I assume it could be implemented to where people who don't want to mess with it won't ever have to touch it, and thus not mess up previous presets. I am not sure how much of a programming job that would be, but it would really allow for some surgical editing. Don't mean to steal thread, But it may be relevant.

    Helix products: v2.70 now released

    It is isnt' it. I mean if it was wordplay it would be "result in an audible hump." I think I have read some users having a slight pop/thump when loading a blockl, could very well have been the kinky Boost.

    That's it???

    I think you have to ask the mods to do it, I am not sure if the OPs have that option when creating a thread.
