  1. Okay, so I worked out that when you go into Command Center while in a snapshot, what you see are all the options for that 1 snapshot- not for the entire patch! I really don't understand the way this is set out. Regardless, I have it working now that I realised I can use instant commands because what I'm seeing in Command Center only affects the snapshot that I'm currently on.
  2. Hi all, I'm trying to get the Helix to change channels and modes on my DSL40 via midi program changes. This works fine if I set up an instant command for a patch, but I want to be able to change channels with snapshots. When I'm in Command Center trying to set the command up to a footswitch, I'm using the following settings: Command- Bank/Prog Midi Ch- 1 (I know this is correct because it works on Ch1 with an instant command) Bank CC00- Off Bank CC32- Off Program- 0,1,2 or 3, depending on the channel/mode I'm trying to get. Again, I know this is correct because it works for an instant command. Should I have specific settings for the Banks? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  3. Maybe it's a Mac thing, but it looks different for me. I have to specify inputs and outputs.
  4. Hi all, I'm trying to get MIKKO to work in standalone with the Helix. I have the following settings: Output on the Helix set to USB 1/2 MIKKO set as shown: When I click 'Test' the output is working but I'm not getting any input. Can anyone suggest anything?
  5. Ahh! I see it now! Thanks duncann- I'm still getting familiar with all the different parameters!
  6. Hi people, I was wondering whether someone could take the time to check these two patches (just snapshot 1 of each). As far as I can tell, they should sound identical; however, 'PLEXI 1' sounds quieter and slightly darker than 'PLEXI 2'. All the blocks have been copied and pasted individually from PLEXI 1 to PLEXI 2 so they are exactly the same. The routing panning and levels are the same (unless I've missed something). This is really annoying as I have 'master patches' that I copy the amp and cab blocks from into other patches for specific songs. The aim here is to get consistency between patches, but I'm finding that for some odd reason, I'm not getting that. Thanks in advance. PLEXI 1.hlx PLEXI 2.hlx

    For some reason I had completely overlooked the Tilt EQ until I read this. Now it's my best friend! Thanks for the tip!

    Wow, this thread went on a bit of a journey didn't it? Anyway, I haven't bothered posting any clips (intentional pun) because I've been busy tweaking and found that I can dial out the sounds that were irritating me. What I was hearing as clipping must be what others refer to as 'fizz' and it can, for the most part be reduced with a high cut. I think my perception is due to a couple of things: - When it comes to real amps, I've owned quite a number. However, they were all higher gain, modern amps that only really produced distortion in their preamps. Therefore, some of the models which are cranked and modelling distortion in their power amp section sound like they're clipping to me. -I've been playing through a Kemper for a few years. Kemper profiles are a snapshot of an amp that has been dialled in to the personal taste of the person profiling them. Any harshness has usually been dialled out and, since, you can't really manipulate the sound much beyond that, the poweramp clipping/fizz (or whatever you want to call it) doesn't appear when you crank the volume or gain. Anyway, now that I've got used to hearing and working with the 'fizz', I'm loving the Helix! Anyone want to buy a Kemper?

    Will do this evening, which will probably be the middle of the night/early morning for most of you.

    Okay, well if it's not clipping, what is it? It's certainly not a sound a real amp would make unless the examples Line 6 based their models on had blown speakers.

    I stumbled across this thread after searching for 'clipping' as I'm having a problem with this too. I haven't read through the entire thread so I apologise if what I'm about to say has already been covered. Having had the Helix for only a day I have found that the default settings for the amp models are way too hot and the 'digital clipping' artifacts are a major issue for me too. The issue, for me at least, is most prominent on the models that load up with their master volumes on 10. The clipping can be reduced considerably by bringing this down. In some cases, the channel volume also has to come down to get rid of it. With the amp model bypassed I can't make the signal clip, so on the positive side it is definitely a software issue. Like I said, I've only had it for a day so I have a lot of experimenting to do. I remember having the same issue with the POD HD (I think they improved it with later firmware updates).
  12. There is no 'Force' option. Under Models I can scroll through and select 'Don't Force,' which is means there is no model selected, but otherwise it looks like by having a model selected it should force the Variax to go to that model. I think it might be a bug/glitch. I still have no idea what was different between the setup of the two patches. I've worked around the problem by copying the patch that worked to the slot of the one that didn't and editing it to make it the same as what was originally there. Weird and annoying, but I'm glad there's a workaround.
  13. Thanks for your response. When you say 'edit page' do you mean under' setup' on one of the two pages regarding Variax?
  14. Hi, I'm hoping someone can help. I have my JTV-59 connected to my POD PRO X via the VDI cable. When I select the patch below the Variax does exactly as it should: The model knob lights up, and it has the correct model and tuning as per the preset. However, when I select this patch, the Variax modelling turns off and I get the magnetic pickups. Can anyone shed some light on why I'm having this problem? Is there a setting I have missed?
  15. Is anyone else missing the Variac'ed Plexi in HD Edit? (Yes, I have Edit 2.26)
  16. Wait, so you mean I won't be able to use the global EQ with my HD500 and DT25 connected via L6 Link?
  17. I have just started experimenting with a Black Cat Unleash between the head and cab, fed into my interface, then using Two Notes Wall of Sound for cab emulation in my DAW. Of course you could always use a cab sim on the HD. For low volume playing I find the Bad Cat awesome. Sounds much better than Low Volume Mode and means you don't have to have full amp versions of your patches.
  18. Hey Gazza, is the mid-focus eq after the amp in the chain? Thanks.
