    variable impedance/4CM/loadbox?

    Dude, I have to thank you for sharing this setup. I was trying to do this the past days, and this comment was really helpful. Incredible integration between Helix and the Suhr Reactive load, I can use my amp's pre with its cab or helix cabs/irs, or both together, same with helix pre's, this setup rules everything! Helix+SRL = total control

    Overdrive/distortion tones not sounding good at all

    This info is great, Thanks a lot, now the Helix sound just right, It was sounding aweful I was about to sell it! Thanks!

    Helix as interface...

    Thanks for your help! I control it currently with din, great to know that a regular usb can do the trick with a laptop! THanks!!!
  4. Hi, One question, In my computer with helix selected as my midi/audio interface, what if I connect a USB controller like a novation launch pad, can I control parameter on helix? I have done this via regular midi straight from the controller to helix and works perfect. All new controllers that comes with lots of knobs (which are cooler) are USB only, they are not including the regular MIDI, those with regular USB/MIDI ports are expensive compared to all new lines of USB controllers. Can I control my helix with a USB controller connect through my computer with helix as my interface? Unfortunately my USB controller is damaged, so I cannot run the test, and I need to get a new controller with more knobs... Hope anyone can help, Cheers!

    Helix Bug Reports

    Firmware: 2.21 OS: Mac OSX 10.11.6 Global Settings: Bug: INSTANCE COMMAND WHEN SAVING PRESET FORGETS EXT AMP SETTINGS. I have already went through the support center, also put this into IDEASCALE, I THINK I WAS MISSING PLKACE THIS PETITION HERE. I ALSO PUT THIS IN THE GEAR PAGE, AND MANY USERS AGREED IT WAS A BUG. IDEASCALE: https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/P...nd-bug-when-SAVE-add-LOCK-option/895129-23508 USERS who are having same issues or think this is a bug: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?posts/24125168/ https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?posts/24125109/ https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?posts/24128912/ https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?posts/24129806/ https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?posts/24129813/ https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?posts/24129988/ Petition to fix instance command bug when SAVE / add LOCK option Idea Actions Instance, they works well and change well between 3 channels of the EXT AMP until you SAVE THE PRESET, at that moment you lose always one channel (instance state). It just records 2 states. I know, 3 channel switching can be accomplish via footswitch assignment in command center, but the huge problem with that method, is that we lose 2 preset Footswitchs slots in edit mode, which are valuable for effects placement. Other thing that is a problem with that, is that if you are in snapshot mode, and then you go to edit mode to add something, there, you have both EXT AMP assignment footswitches (which are the amp commands), and if you press by mistake one of those EXT AMP, you ruin the configuration of your amp switching Snapshot footswitches. So i think it would be awesome to have the ability to lock some preset that you don´t want to deal with in edit mode. HERE is better explained: Create Instance command for footswitchs You are in snapshot mode, and you want to set up 3 channel amp switching via instance command: 1st: You go to a snapshot 1, and set instance Tip+Ring. (CLEAN CHANNEL - green in my amp, Mesa Electra Dyne) 2nd: You go to a snapshot 2, and set instance Tip (LOW GAIN CHANNEL- blue in my amp, Mesa Electra Dyne) 3erd: You go to a snapshot 1, and set instance Ring (HI GAIN CHANNEL- red in my amp, Mesa Electra Dyne) After that setup, you go through the different snapshots, press the 3 different footswitches, and they work well, you can do amp switching between the 3 channels of the amp, without problem, until... 2-You go ahead and press SAVE, as the result of saving, one of the 3 instances disappeared. It just record Tip, and Ring. It does not record Tip+Ring. (So you cannot do 3 channels amp switch via Instances command, because it always when saving forget a 3rd. instance.) You just can't switch between 3 channels via footswitch assignment, which is not cool, because you lose 2 effects slots using amp switching in that way, (when you are in effects mode).

    Should I buy Helix or Helix LT

    If you want to use the mic pre for a vocal chain, and get benefit of the 4 external loops to place extra pedals and expand your rig and not get limited to just the Helix, the full version is for you. You can get a used full helix or open box and save 300 or so. Good luck!
  8. Hi all, Does Helix can do OctySynth and Synth String from M-Line... I was trying with the filters but could not get something similar. Does any body tried to setup these effects into helix?
  9. Never mind, I figure it out, by adding both delays to the momentary switch also. Then: Added a feedback parameter for each delay (This tell the feedback to shut its mouth!) : DLY 1 parameter of the momentary position 1 (feedback parameter 100-70), momentary position 2 (feedback parameter 70-100). DLY 2 parameter of the momentary position 1 (feedback parameter 100-70), momentary position 2 (feedback parameter 70-100). AWESOME!

    Switching between paths in Helix

    Never mind, I figure it out, by adding both delays to the momentary switch also. Then: Added a feedback parameter for each delay: DLY 1 parameter of the momentary position 1 (feedback parameter 100-70), momentary position 2 (feedback parameter 70-100). DLY 2 parameter of the momentary position 1 (feedback parameter 100-70), momentary position 2 (feedback parameter 70-100).
  11. Hi Guys, I was trying to do a momentary A/B, I have used split A/B/, assigned the split to to my momentary switch, also added both output level parameters from 100-0 and 0-100. The A/B works well, but the problem: I am using for A : delay with one time (100% feedback and 100%MIX) I am using for B, the same delay with other time (100% feedback and 100%MIX). When switching A to B, the delay I played before does not reset to cero (because is playing the 100% feedback) it continue playing from the past A/B pressed...keep repeating hidden) I was trying to setup a effect similar to Bloc Party "Octopus", but something is missing... delays and level are added one time and after, and so on, when switching, all my pre-switched delays keep repeating after pressing the switch like hidden... Can a Delay be reset to cero after switching??? Here is a link to a video which explains the effect with a Line switcher and 2 delay pedals. Hope you can help mke figure this out... Here is the setup with different pedals:

    Switching between paths in Helix

    Hi Guys, I have read this post, and I think is the best place to ask this: I was trying to do a momentary A/B, also added both output level parameters frmo 100-0 and 0-100. So it A/B well, but the problem: I am using for A a delay with one time (100%feedback and 100%MIX) and for B, the same delay with a different time (100%feedback and 100%MIX). And when switching A to B, the delay I played before does not reset to cero (because is playing the 100% feedback). It is continue playing from the past A/B pressed...keep repeating hidden) I was trying to set effects like Bloc Party "Octopus", but something is missing... it adds all my pre-switched delays...they keep repeating after pressing the switch hidden... Here is a link to a video which explains the effect with a Line switcher and 2 delay pedals. Hope you can help mke figure this out... HEre is the setup with different pedals: https://youtu.be/JBKHzDEsChs?t=81

    1/4� OUT Buzzing Helix LT

    Do you have the AMP SWITCHING TRS CONNECTED TO EXP OUT connected? If yes, ON THE TRS CABLE cut the connection of the sleeve (Ground) that goes into the Helix end of the cable. That fix my annoying buzz/noise.

    Helix Noise Gate vs ISP Decimator

    Hi, I have a question, Is it worth keeping my Decimator? or the Noise Gates in Helix are just right? Thanks

    Lock preset footswitches

    Hi, I have 3 footswitches assign via command center for amp switching. Is there a way they can be locked, so when in edit mode, they are locked... so there is no accidental edit possibility? Thanks
