  1. VDI would have been nice but it would have blown up the size of the unit. I can still use my JTV-69 with the HX Stomp via the 1/4" cable. True I have to manually switch models but it's not a big deal for me. It wouldn't surprise me to see Line 6 come out with some sort of separate Variax interface that could integrate with the HX Stomp; They are reserving a couple of the USB paths for something. Also, I keep expecting to see a new Variax based on the Revstar guitars.
  2. One option is to merge the 2 paths after the amps and share a cab or IR. That frees up some room for a couple of effects.
  3. FS1 & FS2 cannot currently be reassigned. The tuner can't be decoupled from the tap button but tap/tuner can be reassigned to FS4 or FS5. FS3 can be reassigned to do quite a few things too.
  4. I think you can do all of that. From the manual: I tried this with a guitar and bass and it worked fine.
  5. I'm not really an iPad guy either but I do have one compliments of my job. I'd love to know how this works. I know just enough about MIDI to have my Helix control my amp. This .jpg looks really nice but I have no idea how to put it to use. BTW, I do have the camera connection kit for the iPad.
  6. Try clicking on 'Change Device...' and see if it can find your Variax.
  7. You can set up almost any of the footswitches to send out MIDI signals when pressed. You can also set up Helix to send up to 6 instant MIDI commands upon choosing a preset.
  8. You're welcome. I'm not too familiar with the FH. Does it allow separate FX send and FX return blocks or is there only an FX loop block? If it allows separate blocks, I'd put the FX send before the FH amp and the FX return after it. That way it totally bypasses your FH amp when using your Vetta preamp. If it only allows a FX loop block, I think you would want the FX loop in front of the amp block, and disable the amp block when the FX loop is engaged, because otherwise you'll be running through your Vetta preamp and then back into your FH and through it's amp as well. You might look on CustomTone and see if anyone has posted a 4 cable method patch or template. And I wouldn't worry about the stereo cables if it's working.
  9. Do you have the Vetta fx loop turned on? It is selectable. Also, are you using TRS (stereo cables)? The Vetta fx send and return are stereo jacks.

    I still have my Vetta II Combo but I don't play it very often. It's still amazing but I mostly use my Helix now.

    I just set up all my guitars to play buzz free with the action as low as I want it to be. It's not very difficult and there are tons of videos and books on how to do it.
  12. Welcome to the club. If you use Facebook, I would highly recommend joining the 10,000+ of us on the Line 6 Helix - Rack - LT - Native User Group ORIGINAL page.
  13. I run it into a pair of Alto TS110A PA speakers. Sounds great to me.
  14. It wouldn't surprise me if there are some cool bundle deals in the future. This is just a guess on my part but it makes sense.
  15. That sucks. At least you're still well within your warranty. I have 2 of them, one for over a year now, and haven't experienced any problems at all. I'd log a ticket and Line 6 will take care of you.
