    After HElix 2.80 Update my L3m's are silent

    Interesting. I am glad its working, however, if it was set to multi, this should have also controlled the signal over digital L6 Link, so that kind of doesn't make sense? Scratching my head there haha

    Global settings are reset during the update, is it possible your output settings are not done properly?

    Best Practises Recording Helix (floor + native)

    Floor is not needed for sure, if you have another input device - which I do. However, I am using the floor for zero latency monitoring. The dry signal I record on Input 7 can then later be adjusted with Native, at my desk, without me needing to re-connect the floor and go through the entire re-amping process/workflow. This is all how I understand it to be.

    Connecting Helix floorboard to Apple Macbook

    New MacBook prob has usb 3 connections. Get a proper USB cable and you should be fine.
  5. Hi Friends! Starting to get into some recording and learning Logic Pro X. Want to make this quick - does this sound right? On 1 track I record the full stereo signal inputs 1&2 in Logic which is my full affected/wet sound from Helix floor, direct in USB. Also on track 7 I record the straight dry sound coming from Helix. This gives me the ability to use Helix Native (which I just bought today on the summer sale) to 'redo' this track down the road if I so choose to? I know I could reamp with Helix floor, but I thought just having Native in conjunction with the dry track would streamline this even further?

    Slight bug on moving IR one slot over?

    Tested on Helix unit itself and ISSUE DOES NOT PERSIST. HX Edit is the only thing causing my original issue to happen.

    Slight bug on moving IR one slot over?

    Without having the IR files in here (the exact ones, Im guessing tests may be inconclusive) ... who knows? PANTERA.hlx

    Slight bug on moving IR one slot over?

    Here is a patch im working on, its a "Pantera" type metal patch. If I move this IR over just one single block it totally changes the sound (all snapshots affected) Shapshot screenshot What is going on there? It shouldn't do anything to the tone.

    The Mother of all Headphone Complaint Answers

    I have a pair of ATH-M40fs headphones (they are now discontinued). Do they sound bad...no ? But I have really no other point of reference. The specs of these are: Type Closed-back dynamic Driver Diameter 40 mm Magnet Neodymium Voice Coil Copper-clad aluminum wire Frequency Response 5 - 28,000 Hz Maximum Input Power 1,600 mW at 1 kHz Sensitivity 100 dB Impedance 60 ohms Weight 8.8 oz (250 g) without cable Cable 11' (3.4 m) (OFC litz wire, left-side exit) Connector 1/4" (6.3 mm) phone plug I wouldn't mind upgrading my headphones to something else if I got better sound quality when using alongside my Helix. I do have a pair of shure 215's that I use for my drum kit - I never put those in the helix yet; their set for 17 Ω

    Tuner not working

    What do you mean it doesn't work at all? Can you elaborate? You enable the tuner, start tuning your guitar and then nothing on the screen? As in, zero feedback from the tuning needle (doesn't move at all?)

    Experiments With Helix Master Volume Settings

    Interesting. In light of any changes in touch dynamics, if you say it's the same output I can see that meaning just less range of the large volume at the end of the day? Ie. If on stage and need more volume you will have less range at 3pm for increasing than what it was prior at 12?

    Ear Pain after switching to Digital

    I'm torn on a power cab. Especially since I have a pair of L3M. I can't try one as there are none around me. Would really love to know if it's worth having.
