  1. Thanks to this forum I saw how to fix pedal squeak with white lithium grease. But in taking apart the pedal assembly it kind of came apart in my hands before I could note exactly how the washers were supposed to go. There is a large plastic one, a smaller plastic one, and a metal one. I got it back together and it is functional, but I must have put something back either in the wrong order or facing the wrong direction, because now the pedal scrapes ever so slightly against the chassis. Is there a parts assembly diagram somewhere that shows how this is supposed to be assembled? Or would somebody be willing to post a close up photo of theirs?
  2. I'd like the preset too.
  3. Like others have said you generally want to get them approximately even from patch to patch. I'll often add a gain block at the end of the chain so I can easily even out the volume differences between patches. Since we are adjusting gain and level at the amp/pre/overdrive/other blocks to color the tone as desired, having a gain block at the end gives some flexibility to boost or cut the volume without affecting the tone you have worked so hard to tweak. This would be adjusting what the 100% volume is independent of any volume pedal you may have earlier in the chain. You can add/cut level in the output block too but I find I like having additional degrees of adjustment, and then you can also include this block as part of a "solo" switch that triggers additional volume as well as overdrive/distortion, etc.
  4. Is there any update on this? It appears Workbench has not been updated to interface with Helix (or vice versa). I don't have the USB interface. Seems like the Helix should have the interface functionality by now, especially if it was a high priority post 1.0.
  5. Looks like I was on 1.02. Will try updating.
  6. Earlier this week I exported several presets. I brought them back in and now some are missing amp & cab models. Some other modules are there (compressor, delay, modulation, reverb, gain) but the amps and cabs are gone. Anyone else had this issue? Others I exported are importing back in just fine.
  7. What PeterHamm said. The answer probably depends on how the two tones are built. Is it two different amp blocks altogether? Adding a second amp block? Distortion/fuzz/drive being added before the amp? Note that you also have the option of just adding an additional gain block at any point in the chain, and if you do it at the very end the "how dirty" decision can be separate from the "how loud" decision. This is one of the great things about the Helix way vs. traditional pedals/amps. But whatever the differences are, you can trigger them all by a single footswitch called "lead tone" or whatever. As I think of it I don't know if I've tried using the same switch to simultaneously turn one block on and another block off, but if that's what you need maybe someone else knows if that's possible (e.g., amp 1 off, amp 2 on, distortion on, chorus off, etc.).
  8. I throw a gain module on as the last block before the last output. That way at a gig if there are volume issues switching from preset to preset I can easily cut or boost without affecting the tone. While there is a volume control in the output block, I've found sometimes even having it cranked all the way is still too soft. So this gives additional flexibility.
  9. After, so it can update the factory presets and global settings changes that are included with this update. This will wipe out any non-factory presets but If you first export your non-factory presets you can then import them back in after the reset.
  10. Can we get an update of the model lists that includes the latest models, and maybe pin this post so it gets updated as more get added with new FW updates?
