  1. Agreed. We Helix users all are.
  2. Well, I'm not trying to emulate anything in particular. I'm just trying to get my guitars to sound and feel the way I like them to.
  3. So I’m fiddling with the Helix in the editor. Trying to get a lead sound for my Agile LP on one of my patches that I just wasn’t happy with. I managed to copy a patch that I do like - one block at a time to the patch in question. Before you ask, it’s a dual path preset for an acoustic sound on one path and an overdriven lead sound on the other and I switch between the two via snapshots. So I couldn’t just copy the preset over to that one. Not sure but I don’t think we can copy a path from one preset to another, which would be super handy. Anyway, In switching between the two paths, the lead sound was still not quite suitable. It was too aggressive sounding. Then I remembered! Play with the input impedance, you idiot!! I can’t tell you how many times that this one parameter has saved a preset I was ready to scrap. Hope you find this useful.

    Helix HW Latency

    Latency? Who gives a rat's patootie? If you can actually hear that delay or worse yet, if it actually affects your playing, you need psychiatric help.
  5. Thanks guys, got it sorted. LOVING the Relic Reel!!!
  6. Did the update and all went well, followed the instructions to the letter and it all went smoothly. I did the update on my MS Surface and everything is fine except that although the amp and effects are there in the Helix, they do not show up in HX Edit. I’ve relaunched the app and rebooted the computer. Nada. Haven’t tried on my Mac though. Any ideas?

  8. You mean like this? https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/An-LFO-and-an-ADSR/811573-23508 And this? https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Random-Rate-and-Depth-option/840441-23508
  9. If a simple LFO causes DSP usage to "go through the roof" there is something very very wrong indeed.
  10. You're missing the point. I do not want to have to pack around yet another piece of gear. Especially when it's just for one specific sound.
  11. Nope. Compare what you suggest with manually moving the delay time knob on a delay pedal and that's the sound I'm after. Obviously not as severe in time delay change but it would be achievable via an LFO. Also, what I'm talking about is to do it in real time, live, not via recording. The Echo Quest pedal has this feature and it would be great to have it be incorporated into the Helix.
  12. This thread reminds me of the Ideascale request I posted. I think that an LFO that could be assigned to control and vary the delay time would be a more natural sounding chorus than what is currently available. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/An-LFO-and-an-ADSR/811573-23508

    HX Edit 3.01

    Not having HX Edit be compatible with Big Sur does not render the Helix unusable, however. It's a minor annoyance indeed not to be able to use the editor but you can still do your editing on the Helix itself. Hardly what I would call a show stopper.
