  1. I was thinking of buying an XLR to 1/4" adapter. That should work, correct?
  2. Noob question. I have an acoustic that has a 1/4" standard input and an XLR input. The 1/4" has a short in it. Am I able to use the XLR into the Helix? Is there anything special I need to do to set it up this way? Thank you.
  3. Silverhead....did you find you could dial in your tones through the cans? Or did you have to make some tweaks once you went live?
  4. So, I have purchased a set of BeyerDynamic DT990 Pro's that are open backed cans. I'm going to use these for mixing but thought I might try them through the headphone jack on my Helix. Have any of you tried this and does it accurately represent what you hear at your church or other venue through FOH? I would imagine the sound you get out of the headphone jack if you're using a good set of Studio cans wouldn't be "colored" differently than what goes out from your XLR outs to the board. Your thoughts?
  5. Ok, then. I must be suffering delusions, then. It was just a thought but since it's not even possible I guess I did it right. Thanks to all for responding!
  6. So, I updated to 2.80 about 4 or 5 days after its release and it went flawlessly. The only issues I'm having are the same issues others are having. However, I'm thinking I may have downloaded the Mac version of 2.80 and installed it rather than the Windows version. Is this even possible or would it have not worked since I'm using a windows PC? If I did actually do this what kind of issue might I be experiencing?
  7. That is freakin' awesome! That's a really nice look for the Helix! Nice job, man!
  8. You're correct in saying it is personal preference. Everything is.....but to say you can't get a HUGE sound out of the Helix is just incorrect. I get HUGE sounds no matter which guitar I use and, while I own some IR's, I primarily use only stock cabs. I'm not trying to be combative but I'd say you're doing something wrong if you can't get huge sounds out of your unit. And I agree with Phil_M about the "Helix challenge" and "confirmation bias". I get complimented all the time on how my sound is exactly like the recording which is very important when you're playing cover tunes in church or if you're playing cover tunes anywhere. The Helix is extremely authentic and huge sounds are no problem.
  9. I agree with Rocco_Crocco.....contact Line 6 Support. I'm sure your unit is just fine and they'll be able to help.
  10. It is crazy but that's how they designed it to work. Just remember that for future updates and everything will go smoothly.
  11. Haha! I'm just messing with you, of course. You've always had great sounds, though. I remember back when I had my X3L and my 500X and you would post tips, sounds and links on your site. You were creating free sounds way before everybody else made it a standard practice. Great job!
  12. Great sounding patch and nice chops, as always! However, you might want to eat a couple cheeseburgers. I have guitar strings thicker than those arms, bro....lol
  13. Definitely some nice guitar work there. If I'm being honest, though....I'm not sure about the drums.
  14. I also have the JTV-69S and I agree

    Parametric EQ

    I will give this a try and let you know the result. Thanks for your response.

    Alto TS210 idea

    I agree with cruisinon2 and amsdenj. Tread lightly if you decide to alter it. I don't believe you'll be happy with the final product. Get an actual amp!

    EP boost

    That is exactly what it was intended to do.....+3db boost and bright switch to give more presence to your tone

    Parametric EQ

    Yes. That is exactly what I'm talking about.

    Parametric EQ

    I have a rookie question. I am a long time user of the Helix but have never understood parametric eq. I educated myself and now understand it but have one question. How do you sweep a frequency on the Helix. It's very simple using the plug in that comes with pro tools. Maybe I'm over thinking it. Can somebody please explain?
  20. That's not discouraging at all. I'm sure it is difficult to learn how to mix well....I appreciate your honest response.

    Helix Cabs

    Please explain more on your setup or show a screenshot. It sounds like you may be using an amp that already has a cab and then choosing an additional cab. If you are choosing only the amp it will say "amp" below it on your screen. If you are choosing an amp and a cab it will say "A+C" below it....you may be adding another cab to the "A+C". If you want to use two cabs then only choose the amp and run the two cabs in parallel.
  22. Holy smokes! This is really good information and sounds like it could be a lot of fun, too. I've always wanted to record and mix my own stuff but have been so intimidated by it that I've never even tried. All the websites make it sound so easy, though, so I figured I'd give it a try. Thanks for the input......much appreciated!
  23. he's saying it is a PITA........Pain In The A$$
  24. That's great information. Thank you for your input. Much appreciated!!!
