  1. Yup. Pretty similar to what I do. The main difference might be that I go for the sounds I’ve heard on recordings. I’ve always taken this approach to guitar sound which is why most amps disappoint me.
  2. They have that feature in Adobe Lightroom where you can select which parameters to copy. Not sure why it can’t be done for HX Edit.
  3. Yup. I feel dat! Oh sure, there are pedals such as those made by Strymon that intrigue me but there's nothing out there that keeps me from gigging.
  4. We could really use a "Copy Block Settings" as well as "Paste Block Settings" feature in the editor. Just like they do in photo editing apps. Obviously, this would only be applicable to the amp and cab blocks.
  5. Still amazing. Still consistently sounding great. Still don't need anything else for gigging.

    2.82 Update

    I instinctively tried this but had no success. What did work was to delete a few effects blocks and then hit the "Undo" button until they're all back and then hit "Save". I had not tried it but maybe just deleting one block and then undoing it would have worked just as well.

    2.82 Update

    I was going from 2.70 to 2.82.

    2.82 Update

    Oops... Anybody else having this issue? It would seem that 2 of my presets are affected by this.

    2.82 Update

    This should be the first thing mentioned when reading about this update. I was updating from 2.70 to 2.82. My update experience went through with out a hitch! I don't really understand the need for this instruction before you download the update though - I actually forgot to do it but that didn't seem to be a problem.
  10. The sound quality Helix Native is subject to the quality of your audio interface's A/D converter.
  11. I still wish they'd implemented my idea of Two Phase Snapshots. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Two-Phase-Snapshot-Footswitches-Mode/857489-23508
  12. I just don’t want to have to roll back. Life keeps me pretty busy so I want to upgrade and stay there. I’m sure a stable version will come. And as I like to say, for me, there’s nothing missing in 2.70. I just don’t want to be too far back in the firmware versions.
  13. As a Mac user, I am very curious to see if other Mac users have had issues with the update. I’m admittedly quite nervous about doing it and at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m quite happy with my Helix at 2.7. Actually, I was quite content with the previous version and not in any way taken advantage of or used any of the additions in 2.7.
  14. Well, I may only gig on weekends now but there's no way I could do it without the Helix. I live on an island and getting off and back again, especially in the summertime, just to get the Helix fixed is not an option. The update and the Helix can get borked by a simple USB cable or USB port? Nooo thank you. It ain't broke and I'm still very happy with it the way it is at 2.7... no update for me.
  15. Now, I am definitely waiting for the next maintenance update as I'm still happy with 2.70. Do not need the headache.
  16. Has these updating issues been mainly on PCs or are they happening on Macs too?
  17. Any Mac users running Sierra having these same issues here?
  18. I wonder if this update is taking so long because... it's the last one or is, at least, the last iteration of the firmware because this last version will be squeezing the most out of the Helix. We might get a patch or two afterwards but nothing major because the next major revision will require newer hardware - the next iteration of the Helix. Think about it. The Helix was release June 11 2015. That was 4 years ago and that's a long time in tech years. I mean, I'd be ok with it. I just can't help but wonder.
  19. Well... they are a little late according to their announcement here in this forum... not that I really care. Still pretty happy with my Helix the way it is.
  20. Meh. Amps are way too limiting for my tonal palette needs. I just sold my Quilter Aviator 8, which I dearly loved but it always left me needing more sounds. I had a pedalboard but have pretty much gotten rid of all the individual pedals that I depended on. Still, when I had it it wasn’t as satisfying as what the Helix gives me.
  21. What, no template for Digital Performer?
