  1. I had a similar issue with my Dell XPS-13. Helix Native would not load if there was an SD card active. (My other computers ()a Dell XPS-15, Alenware R2 and R3 don't seem to have this issue.) Kind of a bummer, since my the XPS-13 is my gig machine (with Native instruments installed on the SD card). I re-installed NI instruments on an external SSD, and everything is OK, except for one extra thing to connect under pressure... :(
  2. Eventually, I just said "...." and purchased: Power Generator So far (without using it) has held full charge for 3 months...
  3. I just set up the following" guitar -> Aura -> GT-1 -> (1/8" in) of iLoud (40W battery power, FRFR), with my Handsonic HPD-20 -> Aux In of the GT-1 Then I can use my backing tracks into the Bluetooth of the iLoud. Works just great. If I need vocals, I can go into the Guitar in or even the Aux In) of the Loudbox Mini... Next step is to hook up an FRFR amp like the QSC K8.2 to the DI out of the Loudbox to see how it works when I need more power.... I am ecstatic about the Aura - it is the first acoustic processor that really made a difference for nylon string (Flamenco) for me.... Next to try - The Aura at the input of my Amplify 30 for when I have AC power - A30 has great effects, and can carry in the top case of my motorcycle... :) Sheesh! I GOTTA stop tweaking and get back to scales practice!!!
  4. I just purchased a Fishman Aura Spectrum DI for use with my Cordoba Flamenco guitars (Cordoba GK Pro and Pro Negra and 55FCE) and am blown away but the improvement when using the Fishman Loudbox Mini Charge amp (and presumably all Loudbox amps). These amps had a particularly harsh sound for the piezo pickups in the Cordbobas without the Aura, and the Aura improves things enormously with practically any of the selections in the Nylon bank, but particularly the Cypress/Spruce bottom/top models. I'm almost convinced it can't get any better.) (An improvement, but not so much, in other amps) These guitars use the Fishman Pro Blend preamp/pickups (set all the way to piezo, no internal mic), so I imagine the body is not included in the electronics, since there is such a difference. In any case, I am now a BIG believer in the Aura, but would like to get IR's particularly for my models. The best solution I have found for Helix, Hx Effects is to treat the units as effects in the insert loop of the Aura - I have yet to try this with a DAW, since I am temporarily out of Helix, but the approach worked great with the Hx Effects (and GT-1, and OD-1x, and... and... and...) Guitar -> Aura -> Send -> Helix (guitar in) -> L/Out -> Aura Return -> Aura Out -> FRFR amp (or Fishman Loudbox) Of course, once you have applied the Aura, you can take the output of the Helix directly to an amp, but the Aura gives you important local control of the Aura master if you want that...). Of course, the output of the Aura (without the loop) can be fed directly to the inputs of the Helix or HxFx….) The Hauser IR from Sigma3 (for a classic guitar) may work with tweaking, but the Hauser does not have a pickup, so I doubt it will be as effective for the Piezo modeling. I can't believe the sound I'm getting now after so many years of desperate struggle....
  5. I eventually settled on the following, which fits perfectly: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073XDFKZ6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1
  6. For EVERYTHING! The Amplifi 30, the M5, the HX Effects. I ordered the PS in the OP above, but also a Voodoo polarity inverter cable with 2.5" barrel. Going to try it with my Amplifi with a power brick... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DN0KBXU/?coliid=I1OPUUEB4C4LVW&colid=2ENW9WU8ZT2UL&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it If that works, I may return my M5 and spring for the HX....
  7. You might be able to do this with Voodoo Lab 2.1mm Reverse Polarity Barrel https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PPREV--voodoo-lab-2.1mm-reverse-polarity-barrel-cable-18-inch-str which has a 2.1" barrel. This inverts the polarity as welll I don't know if it will work; make sure the brick has the correct voltage and current. E.g. https://www.amazon.com/Poweradd-Pilot-23000mAh-External-Smartphones/dp/B015OAJFOC?pd_rd_wg=LWamq&pd_rd_r=014763d0-074a-4c04-a372-dff285db50ce&pd_rd_w=2JDWG&ref_=pd_gw_wish&pf_rd_r=98XYQ0ZQKZHGERD3E6SC&pf_rd_p=51143653-d574-5e14-a08c-77ccfb46e5ba I have ordered the cable to see if it will work with my Amplifi 30. If so, I may spring for the Firehawk as well
  8. I ordered it, but can always return it. It will get here tomorrow and I'll report back Update: It would have been perfect, but it was too small; sending it back. Maybe next size up... will keep looking...
  9. I found this on Amazon, and am thinking about it. It looks like it might fit... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001KVEURC/?coliid=I38EG6DVOZ8A63&colid=2ENW9WU8ZT2UL&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
  10. I'm thinking I just may use a plastic trash bag... :)
  11. Of course, my backing tracks don't loop. I simply make them 12 minutes or so. If Line 6 requires looping, then they should create a proprietary "Log In" folder in My Music, and provide us with a mechanism for looping seamlessly. (iOS doesn't allow easy seamless looping like Windows, especially for mp3. Even so, the process could be automated and invisible to the user - the tracks would then have a proprietary "Jam" format. ) Nevertheless, I STILL should be able to play tracks from My Music, for intermission, if nothing else, independently of a WiFi connectionl
