  1. Here's the bottom line. If a pedal has an effects loop, that pretty much enables it for 4CM.
  2. Huh? I’ve owned a GT-5, 6 & 8 and 4CM has always been doable on all of them and the I/O on this GT-1000 isn’t much different. The only real difference is that it has XLR connectors and an extra effects loop. Although I never owned either, I know that the GT-10 & 100 are no exception to this. All you need to do 4CM is an effects loop. In fact the early GT series were some of the first few pedals that encouraged players to use 4CM. So, I have to ask, what in tarnation are you talking about???
  3. I think I saw one of those there too. Have a look around, man.
  4. Here you go; https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-PWC-143R-Right-Angle-5-15P-Power/dp/B004R6I37A
  5. Hmmm... I was hoping for more than that.
  6. Still looking for the “controversial†part of this update. I guess we’ll see when it’s released.
  7. The first two are preamps only - not amps. Yes, some of the HK amps will allow this but most of the functionality on most tube amps that have Midi seems limited to just channel switching. The ones that have more functionality seem pretty few and far between. And are horribly expensive.

    2.31 Release Date

    I’m with you on that sentiment. I updated to 2.30 but the only thing I’ve changed is my use of the SP Comp on my patches.
  9. Have you thought about maybe borrowing a guitar temporarily?
  10. I’m afraid that there is no electronic solution to that issue. It sounds like your guitar needs fret leveling and maybe a truss rod adjustment. From what you describe, it sounds like you play a lot of open D and G chords. Hence the wear at the second and third frets. I think that there is no option other than taking your guitar to a luthier. Sorry.
  11. ^^THIS!^^I remember that feature as well. Not only was it a useful feature, it was efficient and elegant.

    Yes, but I'd bet that they only modeled the preamp. For all intents and purposes, the power amp is irrelevant when it comes to an acoustic guitar's tone.

    Well, acoustic amps don’t really have an innate sound of their own unlike electric guitar amps. Acoustic amps are essentially very similar to most FRFR systems except that their preamp sections have specific controls to help deal with piezo quack and feedback issues. It would be more practical if Line 6 included a Preamp with those same controls but modeling the rest of the amp won’t do anything to improve your acoustic sound at all.
  14. I think an Edit/Compare option would be more useful. This may be difficult with the actual Helix but I think would be doable in the editor and Helix Native. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Edit-Compare/820832-23508
  15. Room size, shape and acoustic treatment will affect how any speaker sounds. In small rooms, low frequencies can be very difficult to control and larger speakers tend to overpower them. I had a pair of KRK VXT-8s who’s lows were far too massive for my room. I’ve heard the little Genelecs sound amazing in à biggish room.
  16. ^^What VirtualGuitars said.^^ Still, I doubt that anyone could offer a “sure thing†solution to anyone.
  17. Hmmm... Helix II? More CPU power, more memory and a USB A port of quick and dirty backups and preset importing.
  18. Never mind all that. I listened to what Paul and the guy farther away played. Wow! Both so melodic and thoughtful in what they chose to play. Paul’s playfulness was completely awesome!
