  1. Thanks Phil for the answer. I didn't know that myself.
  2. I'm pretty sure it matters to rosskoss or he/she wouldn't have asked. Having a bad day rd?

    Derek Trucks Sound

    "Getting close is good enough". What I mean is, we could all play thru Mr. Trucks current rig, and it wouldnt sound like him. Why? Because we don't have his hands and technique. That is part of the tone's unique to him. So getting close is good enough. ; )
  4. I feel the same about my Toyota Camry. It runs great and gets me to my destination, but it just doesn't accelerate like the Kia Stinger twin turbo does... ; ) All kidding aside, any suggestions on Improving Helix from what it is right now are more than welcome.
  5. Quote of the month! In fact- in most cases It's not the modeler, or the speakers either. Its "people"..., That group always throws a wrench in the works. Get rid of them and enter toneful bliss.... ; )
  6. To be fair, any "limitations" (requirements) of Luna were stated up front, and as stated, are dependant on what we have and use to run it. UA built "Luna" the way it is, "on purpose". It wasn't any accident that it requires and uses a "Thunderbolt" interface only as its hardware interface "host", and a "set" of proprietary plugins (even though it will run other VST's just fine too). So its limited only by our perspective and $$$, as in if you own all the plugins for Luna from UA and have a Thunderbolt interface (as I do), it's a pretty sweet rig. Using a pair of "audio inputs" from Helix (on any recording device) is not a limitation or setback. If it was, there wouldn't be any "Beatles" albums lol... Like a fast "sports car", you don't need one to get where you are going, but the option of having one is a nice... ; )
  7. Adding to what Cru is talking about, a picture is worth a thousand words. ; )
  8. Just woke & read this- Looks like I need to re-visit what version firmware is inside my PC+ pair... Reverb huh? Latest update I see is v2.xx and I didn't read anything about reverb blocks there, but i did not read the newest manual yet.
  9. Just throwing this out there... I updated just fine with a Mac using the "Catalina" OS. El-Capitan is a 2015 OS release, almost 6 years old, and altho I have no proof it wont run Helix 3.01 correctly, Id still upgrade. But that's just me...
  10. OK where is your toilet Cam!!!>?!?!?!?!? ; )

    Big Sur

    "Catalina" is and will be a "Windows 2000" for me until my next Mac purchase, sometime in 2 or 3 years or so. By the time I update Mac OS's again it may be "WAP Big Purrrr papa mowmow" lol...
  12. If you are going to spend the $$$ get the rack AND the controller. This way you arn't stepping all over the expensive part.... ; )
  13. The alternative in this is to just play a regular electric guitar tuned to "Open G" (or whatever you like). I may do that but I have already put the 11-52's on the Variax for slide. Gotta wear out a set of strings 1st!!! ; ) Thanks again guys
  14. Thanks guys I'll check it out at a louder volume then (and I will fix the OP), but it seemed so loud at the time I could have sworn "E" was being amplified thru the speakers with the "D".
