  1. Check out my proposal. Of equal importance is to have this as an option so that you don't have to use it if you don't need or like it.
  2. I don’t think this is currently possible and I would like to be able to do this as well some months ago I posted this idea - https://line6.ideascale.com/a/ideas/search?templateId=0&query=Remember+last+Snapshot+

    I love this place!
  4. I think that for some, it takes a little while to get that hang of and determine if the Helix is going to do it for them. As much as most of us here would likely endorse the Helix wholeheartedly, ultimately it will be up to you and your needs. My recommendation is to hang on to your old rig, tolerate the mess for a while until you’re sure you’re about to make the right decision.

    Helix vs Mimiq

    I think it’s only practical if you run the Helix in stereo.
  7. Anyone tried the electric guitar body IRs?

    Well, I did it.

    Yeah, but then you have two things to pack around instead of just one. Just a personal preference. I do wish there was an editor for the iPad

    Well, I did it.

    The editor is fine for editing at home but in my experience, every new or modified preset will need tweaking at the gig. I don't bring a computer to the gig for editing so it's the "Stoop, Twiddle and Pluck" dance for a little while.
  10. Yup. Just like how you can save user presets for audio plugins on your computer.

    Well, I did it.

    😂😆 Well... no. 😂 it’s just as bad. Honestly, I played with the new amps and they’re really cool sounding but... I am equally happy with the ones I currently use.
  12. Agreed. I don’t think it’s practical to try to copy specific blocks within a path. I think it’s easier if you just copy the whole path and delete the ones you don’t want after you’ve pasted it onto another path or preset.
  13. You could add it to the "Action" button. Hit that button and select "Copy Path", choose the Path to copy, and then select "Paste to Path" to either paste it on the secondary path in the same preset or, and this is what would be more useful for me, go to another preset and be able to hit the "Action"button again, select "Paste to Path", select the path and hit "OK" in that new preset.
  14. USB Output Gain... if there's such a parameter? I'm not sure. The only time I connect via USB is to backup, Edit or Update.
  15. Have you checked to see if there's an input pad turned on in the Helix?

    Well, I did it.

    Idle hands got the better of me last night and I went and updated to 2.30. So far, so good. I'm liking the Backup and Restore feature, the new amps sound good and seem like fun to tinker with and I think the Bias, Bias X and Ripple controls now seem to have a more noticeable effect when you move their sliders. It was pretty subtle before, I thought. No, none of the new amps have replaced the ones I use in my patches now. As I said before, I was and still am perfectly happy with the sounds I've got. Maybe I was just not in the mood to experiment... or maybe because I know where it leads. It leads to more bending down at the pedal, at the gig, to adjust certain things about the new amp sounds. I've already done that and don't want to do it again for a good long while or unless the next update really has some things that I actually want to incorporate into my patches. Love the new SP Comp (I have the real one on my analog pedalboard) - that little guy sounds so cool in both the physical and virtual renditions! Somebody had posted asking if the "Squirrel had gone". I'm thinking it has. There seems to be a renewed smoothness to the way it sounds now. If it's just my imagination, that's ok too because I already liked the way it sounded before the update. I hadn't noticed it before but now, switching between cabs sounds more abrupt and there's a tiny bit of a kind of "Pop" sound when you change cabs. I wonder if something in the Cab Sims has changed. Things do sound a tiny bit smoother. I run mostly in mono and have found the Doubler effect to be not so great in mono - I had higher hopes and it reinforces the need for dedicated mono effects or at least a way to sum them to mono with minimal phase cancellation... if that's possible. Not a very exciting update for me but at least now, it won't be as much of a pain when a version comes out with features that hold more interest for me. For that, thank you, Line6!
  17. I wonder if Line6 would prefer to develop their own tech for pitch detection tech or license one from these guys. https://ivlaudio.com
  18. I wish they’d let us know. I mean, was it the software or was the switch failing and it was just coinkydink? I don’t think I’ve ever typed that word “Coinkydink†before. 😆
  19. Oh yeah. Seen that happen once too many times. For me, that’s what defines the issue in this video. It is all about a badly tuned guitar. And I’m not just saying that ’cause this is another Helix Tuner thread. 😂
  20. Guys, listen to the rest of the band, in particular, the synth player and the bass player and Dave. They're in the same key. Furthermore, the guitar is flat in relation to the synth and bass. If they were indeed accommodating DLR because he can't sing it in the original key, they'd transpose it down to where Eddie's playing - not up and Eddie would be sharp compared to the band. That said, Eddie's guitar is not a perfect half step down - it's just out of tune and it's not a matter of the band playing in different keys from each other.
  21. It's depressing to see that some people (the one who posted the video) are actually blaming it on the synthesizer. Unbelievable Ignorance!
