    Helix Stereo -- OMG!

    Sometimes, even if the venue we are playing at can only do mono to FOH, I will run stereo to my in ears because it sounds so good. Very inspiring to my playing. Sounds huge.

    any thing in helix you think sucks?

    Definitely the firmware update process and IR management.

    XLR output on helix won't click in

    I have a similar issue. In my case, the metal clip on the inside of the Helix output broke off inside my unit. I am out of warranty so have not pursued getting it fixed. Still works fine, just doesn't lock the XLR in.

    Helix through headphones sounds awful

    My Helix sounds phenomenal through my Sony MDR7506 phones. $80 on Amazon.

    Are any artists ACTUALLY using the Helix?

    I believe Stryper is using Helix on their current tour but honestly can't remember where I saw it (get it,Honestly;) May have been posted on the Helix FB page.

    Helix died in middle of jam

    He has talked to L6 service. It happened in an air conditioned basement with plenty of ventilation for the Helix sitting up on a pedal board. The only thing that went out was the Helix. I played my Helix at a gig last Saturday where the heat index was 110 and the unit was on for 6 hours with no issues. It's a mystery right now but L6 is aware of the issue.

    Helix died in middle of jam

    This is a copy and paste from a friends Helix User Group post on FB. I am the witness in this account. Has anyone else experienced this? Makes me worry this could happen during a gig... Had my buddy over after work to take care of some gear. Was having him check out the Helix presets I had setup for gigging... About 15 minutes in my Helix just powered down outta nowhere and was completely unresponsive. No power, swapped cables, outlets.... Nothing. About 10 minutes later it powers back up... Anyone have anything like that happen? Completely weird and I have a witness to it too...

    Snapshot icon taking up too much text space in scribble strip

    So we have been begging for scene functionality since Helix was released and now we are going to fuss over 6 characters? Can't we just be happy for snapshots?? I am!!

    Pitch Shift Issues after the 2.0 Update

    My half step down pitch shifts are unusable as well. All garbled up. Please fix Line 6!

    Grabbed Glenn Delaunes Snapshots

    Agreed. Fantastic patches. I have most of his Helix releases.

    Helix gig without backup?

    Ever since my Vetta crapped out on me an hour from home at a gig, I have always had a backup for any rig. I picked up a Randall RG13 that I throw in the truck now. It has enough power to push a cab plus a direct out. Decent tones to get through a gig in a pinch. Of course I have never needed a backup since that bad Vetta day. Just like I have never used the emergency generator in my garage. Better safe than sorry, though. I worry more about a drunk chick spilling a fruity drink on my Helix than it ever dying unexpectedly.

    Firmware update??

    Saw some noise on The Gear Page about a potential Firmware update, maybe today. Anyone else hear that?

    Helix HX Cabs vs IR's

    I have recently started using Ownhammer IRs and have had the same experience. The IRs feel more realistic, dynamic and alive. However, unless it is my imagination, they seem to eat up more DSP resources which limits what can be done in some patches. Would love for the stock L6 cabs to sound as good. I would even buy a cab model pack for the convenience factor.

    Latency between patch switching is unbearable

    Great post. Couldn't agree more. I got the sh!t kicked out of me for posting that video.
