  1. Indeed. That "mic" is the disconnect between a real amp and a modeler. Personally, because of a real amp's limitations and impracticality for most gigs, they've never satisfied me. Until modelers came along, Id struggled trying to get the sounds i heard in my favorite recordings and songs. Honestly, you can't really get a lot of those sounds with a real amp... not without getting fired from the gig.
  2. If it’s really a good bargain and has an effects return you could probably make it work. But it has to be really cheap. The Roland AC series are nice because you can run the Helix in stereo - all in one box! It won’t be very loud though.
  3. Yes, but that occupies a block that could otherwise be used for something else. That's a workaround that, had a little forethought been used, really shouldn't be necessary. Also, what if there's no room for another block in that signal chain?
  4. Why can't a "summing amplifier" be added at the end of the signal chain within each of the reverb effects themselves?

    The future of Helix

    I think the Helix is a long lived product. It’s current needs, to me, are improvements in the its UI and usability tweaks. That’s it.
  6. I do wish they’d model the Fender Excelsior along with the Supersonic 22
  7. Yes that’s a good work around but at this level, should it really be necessary to have to waste a block for something (Summing to mono) that should have been part of the effect parameter set from the beginning?
  8. That seems like a kludge. Especially when you’re in Snap/Preset mode.
  9. I’ve trashed a relatively major edit because of the joystick so many times myself. It’s especially ridiculous when you’re hunched over with a guitar between your lap and your belly. Gah!
  10. Just now came up with a different approach. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Speed-Select-mode-for-the-Multi-Select-button/970710-23508?submitted=1
  11. Having to continually nudge that Multi Select knob probably leads to its premature failure AND it’s so tedious. I think I have a better idea. Allow us to assign a specific effects block to each of the 6 knobs under the screen. I already submitted the idea. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Assign-specific-effects-blocks-to-each-knob-under-the-screen/970702-23508?submitted=1

    By "units" do you mean devices? Hmmm... could be. It's particularly annoying on a phone.
  14. Meh. I don’t give a rat’s patootie about that kind of accuracy.

    Yeah, me too.
  16. I’m just surprised that I’m only noticing it since this latest upgrade. Especially since yes, it is highly annoying.
  17. Hey, quit copying my thread! lolol. Seriously though, we're just noticing this now? Seems a little odd. i just cannot recall ever hearing this hum prior to 2.82.
  18. Ah. Thank you, Codamedia! Will try that as soon as I can.
  19. Is it my imagination? Has it always been there? I don’t remember this amp model having this low frequency hum.
  20. I did it a couple of nights ago for the first time. Had to use the Global EQ but that was fine. That little QSC CP8 sounds great!
  21. Oooh, gonna have to try that!! I love being able to do the physically impossible on the Helix! I've successfully put an overdrive after the amp model myself and use that patch quite a lot. Now if we could just get an amp model that allows us to only distort the virtual power section. This could be accomplished in several of ways; 1) They could include a clean boost circuit after the tone stack. 2) Create a virtual effects loop within each amp model so that we can add an effects block between the preamp and power amp (I've proposed this in Ideascale). 3) Give us a few separate preamp and power amp models. 4) Give us a "Blank Slate" amp model that allows us to configure it as we please. We choose virtual preamp tube types and their gain staging, same with the power section.
  22. So, I recently got an Ibanez ARZ200FM in Grey Burst. Beautiful guitar and lovely to play but when my fingers accidentally touched either pickup, it would buzz. Hmmm... So I opened her up and sure enough, the pickups were wired in backwards. Since I was planning on replacing the neck pickup anyway - Love the way Ibanez guitars play but hate their neck pickups. Too muddy and no character. The bridge pickup was fine. Nothing special but I could work with it so I decided to live with it for a while before replacing it. It sounded like a typical bridge humbucker. So when the SD Antiquity Neck arrived I did that installation and corrected the wiring on the bridge pickup. Here's where the total surprise came in. The bridge now sounded bright, jangly, it lost some of its low end but not too much. It was now a very lively yet not ice picky bridge pickup. Sounds almost like a really FAT tele pickup. What I don't understand is how a mere change in its wiring polarity could so dramatically change the tone of this pickup. I changed and experimented with lots of pickups before and had reversed wires intentionally lots of times and have never had a tonal change such as this ever. How is this happenning? Anyone have any ideas?
  23. I think it’s just something that’s easily ignored.
