  1. Unfortunately... Auto-snark is a trait that plagues these forums. I rarely visit them anymore, and that is one of the main reasons. Glad you got it sorted.
  2. The HX reverbs are pretty good, but I think there is something that all of them could have added to them that would make them better. An EQ section for the Reverb. (if people don't like messing with it they can leave it at defaults) That said I do want more flavors of HX reverbs. 5 is nice, but I would like more. I found myself liking the Ganymead (spelling) when I turn the decay down to like 1.2 - 1.7. Make a few further adjustments. Put it on its own parallel path with the vintage delay on the other path with most of the signal going thru the delay side of the path. The Reverb path gets an hi/low EQ after it, and then a stereo widening block after it before it merges back into the signal path. You can get great results with them, you just have to work with them, and I think an EQ added to each would be nice. (some don't even have a low/hi cut) I just think we need more HX Reverbs period. There is nothing wrong with mentioning that you want more HX reverbs for Helix... I do. (and I have a large selection of Reverb plugins) You will be told to buy something else, or be happy with what you have, but I don't give much credence to those auto-snark responses. They are very similar to "the tone is in the fingers" crap responses people get when asking about getting a specific tone.
  3. cell phone. Make sure it isn't in your pocket, near the headphones, or near the unit. Several feet away from these areas, at least.
  4. Yes, it is. I hardly even come to these forums anymore. I get more information, faster, with less snark from TGP. Which I find amusing, and I am sure won't last long. That said, I am excited about 3.0. I don't even know what is coming in it, I just hope it actually is a big update. I do hope for some HX reverbs, or EQ sections put into current HX reverbs, and maybe some L6 original amps.
  5. Let me clarify something it isn't that you have old hardware that is the problem. Its that it was underpowered even 8 years ago. The Macbooks were not very powerful to be honest, especially the Airs. (they were built to be lighter) I am running on a 6 year old processor. I7 5820K (it still rocks hard) yes I can get underruns in FL Studio. Yes I can push it to the max in games now. (if in 4k) I built this rig 6 years ago knowing it could last me a decade if needed. But since I went up to 48K I am meeting the limits of this processor. I plan on building a new rig next year once the Rocket Lake CPUs release with Mobos that support PCIe4.0. As long as this one doesn't burn up before then, it will last me until then. That said I still balance wtih the 512s latency, or higher! This creates too much throughput latency to be usable if I were recording and monitoring completely through my PC. This is not the case though. I strongly recommend that you wet monitor through from your unit, and kill any monitoring throughput you have in your DAW. In FL Studio I have my guitar coming through input usb7 (from helix) Dry channel recording of whatever I am playing. I monitor with amps/FX through the Helix unit itself. I just make sure whatever channel I am recording to in the mixer in FL Studio is not routed to the master. That is it. Its pretty simple once you wrap your head around it the first few times. If you want to record with your AMP/FX baked in already then just use USB 1&2 instead of 7. I am not sure about Studio One, but FL Studio has latency compensation (so you won't have to shift your recordings to align)

    Helix 2.9

    Yes, I did. Its hard not to bring that person up when talking about free speech, and criticism. I am not wrong.... nudge nudge, wink wink ;-) Since it is abundantly obvious, and no one is actually mentioned, where is the need for censorship? ;)

    Helix 2.9

    Seems that is something "a lot of people" seem to forget. We all know one who is real bad about it.

    Helix 2.9

    Louisiana definitely has a mosquito problem... This is like their HQ.

    Helix 2.9

    Don't get your hopes up. I heard through the grapevine that the tuner is modeled after a tuning fork that is only able to go as low as a dog whistle.

    Helix 2.9

    Agnostic is a statement of knowledge. Atheism is a statement of beliefs. I am an agnostic atheist. I do not know if god(s) exists, however, I am not convinced of it. If I were a (gnostic theist) I would be claiming that I know there is a god. As opposed to just a theist - believing in it. (being convinced)

    Helix 2.9

    I don't think it so easy as anyone chooses their beliefs. To "choose" a belief would be insincere would it not? As you are either convinced, or you are not. You believe, or don't. I don't just mean in matters of god(s)/religions either. How can one sincerely choose to be convinced of something? If you are choosing to be convinced of something then it is kinda apparent that the priority of it being true is significantly diminished. Hints the detriment to its sincerity. I get that when people say things like "I don't believe in abortion" what they are really saying is they don't support it. Supporting something, and believing in it are two separate things, often convoluted. (I was using that as an example, not to move the discussion to abortion at all)

    Helix 2.9

    Aye. No problem. Glad I could help.
  13. Lachdanan0121

    Helix 2.9

    BTW. Agnostic is not the middle ground between atheism, and theism. Atheism is a lack of belief in a god. IE not convinced one exists. Anti-theism is the assertion that there is no god. Agnostic is a statement of knowledge. Atheism is a statement of beliefs. I am an Agnostic Atheist.

    Helix 2.9

    If Nihilism, especially existential Nihilism, isn't an option... Then it isn't my choice. Perhaps L6 can finally get it right with 3.00. :)
