    Global EQ Settings

    Well, I have to say that we should be thankful that the Helix has enough lows that they can be cut. Some modelers I've used can be so wimpy in that department and although some have global EQs, there isn't much low end information to boost or cut. I prefer a device that has enough of the entire spectrum so that I can cut where I need to cut. I don't have my own Helix yet but I certainly hope its EQs are more capable and effective than the last Line 6 modeler I had.
  2. Boy, I hope so. The last Line 6 modeler I had (Pod XTLive) sounded ok but felt horrible and very static in response. From the reaction of other players that I appreciate, I'm very hopeful that the Helix is a wholly different animal.
  3. I should clarify that I do not as yet have the Helix in my hands. I have preordered it from Sweetwater though.
  4. Maybe there's already a way to do this but, with two rows of four preset/stomp switches, I wish the lower four were could be for presets and the upper four be for stomps. The best of both worlds.
  5. Hello all. After a very very long hiatus from Line 6 modelers, I'm going to give it another shot. Mostly it's because I'm a Yamaha fan. I have some questions about the Helix's built in expression pedal and its operation as a volume control. Is there a global assignment for the expression pedal to only be a volume pedal? If not and if I had several patches that have it assigned as a volume pedal, does the Helix track the pedal's position/angle so that it supersedes the volume setting on each patch? Can it be set to be the global output volume control (pre reverb and delay of course)? Thanks.
