  1. I think what you're looking for is this https://www.museresearch.com/products/receptorPix.php
  2. I think it would be a lot simpler to just get a decent powered speaker. I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish by putting a full range speaker in a guitar cab. I mean, it will extend the high frequency range of the cab but it certainly will not have a flat response. As a guitar cabinet, it is designed to accentuate certain portions of the frequency band. This approach is anathema to the requirements of Full Range, Flat Response.
  3. All my guitars have low output pickups so nope.
  4. Uhh... care to tell us what that red thing is on the right in the picture?
  5. I really wish that a true modulated delay were available. Instead of one with just a chorus on it. A true modulated delay would be a lot better and more natural sounding. Better yet, If the LFO controlling the modulation had a random setting it would take away the mechanical nature of the chorus sounds.
  6. Well, 2.82 has been rock solid for me. I'm glad they're continuing to improve the update process but it sounds like the update itself still needs work. Once again I am forced to say that there's nothing feature-wise that appeals to me in this update. The things I want may never come to be and really, that's ok. Everything in 2.82 does absolutely everything that I need the Helix to do. The wishlist is just that. A wishlist.
  7. OMG... ok... lol I'm done with this. Still laughing though.
  8. I mentioned absolutely nothing about the complexity of the “signal”. Read my post again. The signal is dead simple. The psychoacoustic effects are not.
  9. The mic'd studio sound of two amps and two cabs in a room is nowhere near as dramatic as the sound of being in the room with those two amps is my point.
  10. Nope. Even when you run it in stereo, you're not getting the full effect of two real amps together in a room. The psycho-acoustic effects are very complex. Likely too complex for modelers.
  11. I still think the manual leaves a lot to be desired.
  12. Yup. The GT-5, 6, 8, all had this feature as I remember. Very very handy. It helped a lot especially since the thing as a whole was a pain in the keester to edit. I loved that you could create your own overdrives and preamps too.
  13. Sad days for us all indeed and not just us musicians.
  14. Yeah, I’ve had mine a year or two longer. It’s still so satisfying and amazing.
  15. I was switching guitars for my next gig... which of course got cancelled. Thanks Covid-19! Anyway, I use different setlists for each of my guitars and tailor the patches accordingly and switched to a setlist for my FrankenStrat. Anyway, did that and and as I was putting the Helix back in its case, I heard myself say, "Man, I love this thing!" Nice to know I can count my blessings without having to be reminded. I hope you're all staying healthy, my friends!

    Helix 2.9

    Well if that were true they wouldn’t announce anything at all.
  17. There are a few things I wouldn’t mind having but then I’d have to pack them around all the time. lol
  18. For me, it has too few footswitches For its amp modeling capabilities to be practical In live use. That and the fact that I already have amp models in the Helix. I have zero interest in other modelers. Even if they are demonstrably better, they can’t be THAT much better. I truly believe that we are now in a “Splitting Hairs” era when it comes to amp modeling. It’s gonna have to be a night and day difference before it’ll get my interest. Thus, I’m only interested in it’s guitar modeling capability and with that in mind, it is eye wateringly expensive.

    Helix 2.9

    Yeah, I just know myself and know I’d never do it.
  20. You had my curiosity piqued but then I saw the eye watering price tag. Yikes.

    Helix 2.9

    Boo. I never leave the Snap/Preset mode and would never want to.

    Helix 2.9

    What if you’re in Snap/Preset mode?

    Helix 2.9

    There is always room for improvement. Always.
  24. Since the AudioEngines are powered speakers, not at all. But you might want to be sure that you start off with the phones volume turned way down.

    Helix 2.9

    Yeah, this next update sounds like it's mostly another round of more amp and pedal models. Humbug! I'd really rather see some cool new features and capabilities such as the ones posted on Ideascale. If they're going to add more models of pedals, at least pick some unique ones from the likes of Strymon and EH. Otherwise, meh! The Helix is perfectly fine the way it is.
