    Helix Effects Corrupted Preset?

    Easier said than done Im sure, but (if not done already) the software needs to be rewritten so that if it see's a bad code (IR/setting/etc.) instead of accepting it and then locking up, to reject it completely. This may already be in there and maybe it just needs tweaked some. OTOH, it may not be the IR or setting at all and the whole executable/code itself needs more fixing and debugging. If so, someone needs to grab the QA dept, bean counters and time restraints & Contract dates Lawyers by the short-hairs and go HEEEEEYYYY let um fix me before you ship me (I know- fat chance)... Of course then you just have to ignore the masses going "why hasn't it shipped yet". ; )

    Power Cab vs Combo Amp

    Until you actually hear the speaker simulations in the PC PLUS, you wont know. Go listen to one. You can thank me then.

    The 4 cm is too messy

    Velcro strips are your friend. I have um and use um all the time. Being neater about your layout is good, but obsessive (anything) OCD or just weirdness stops you from spanking the plank. BTW- I have OCD and speak from experience here- and FYI there's no tuner in the editor so don't even look for one! ; )

    2.81 Should I wait?

    I saw nothing but complications for the most part on 2.80 as well. This was mainly due to folks not reading the directions beforehand, altho there were some software bugs as well (mostly from Windows 10 users) as expected at least by me. Why? The registry suxs no matter what happens. Anyway- 2.81 was for some fixes for 2.80 IIRC. The success you are looking for (complete success and with zero bugs on any software) has not arrived yet and probably never will. So why not update?

    I'm now thinking that you are hearing your guitar raw buffered signal along with Helix's tone, at the same time. Guys???

    Helix HX - Power Supply Woes

    I don't own one, how much amperage does the Stomp pull? And the other gear? Add them up for an over-all idea, then look at the max amperage each port on the power brick/supply will handle. If its lower (gear amp needs are lower) than what the port provides then you are good and there is your answer. In other words, if the port puts out 500 milliamps and the specific gear draws 300 milliamps you're good. If the specific gear draws 2 amps and the port provides 1 amp, you are NOT good.

    Amps won’t clean up on helix.

    Do you know that the Fender "Twin" could be turned up all the way, without distortion but painfully loud? That's why the US Double is the same way (after what its modeled for). The gains on lots of the other amps in Helix are modeled after the originals, and when the gain is turned up it gets dirty sounding, as expected. Class A and AB amps especially get dirty as you turn up the gain or crank the master. It sounds like you have not been around many amps before, please excuse if this is incorrect. Or maybe this is your 1st foray into modeled (or Profiled) guitar amps and cabs? I do not think anything is wrong with your Helix yet. What are you using for a amp or FRFR speaker?
