  1. Hi - I am considering a PC (or PC+). Would be mostly for electric guitar gigs, but I'm using a bose l1 pro for acoustic gigs and sometimes might want extra monitor for that. What I'm wondering is if for acoustic duo gigs if the PC full range mode would work OK to run the whole mix (acoustic guitar/looper, 2 vox)? Is anybody doing this? Results? Not a dealbreaker for me, but easier to justify if i can get more 'mileage' Thanks!
  2. well... thanks for the comic relief.. FWIW, I have looked in manual, but even the part you quote doesn't seem to address how to connect a single expression pedal, and there were a bunch of folks on the forum - including the other guru above - who seemed to indicated the M audio pedal would work without modification. I guess I'll find out one way or the other tomorrow. Thanks!
  3. Hi - I am trying to switch from using a rock stomp 2 button footswitch with the hx to dusting off my old midi mouse to change HX presets (so that I can use an expression pedal for volume, etc. on the Hx stomp). It works well, but hx doesn't respond to the midi mouse on 128, 127 (and maybe 126). Not a huge deal ( I can reorganize HX presets), but just making sure this is 'normal' - I did see the post that on the newer morningstar unit, there's a way to set the range so that it only goes to 125... I assume to avoid this blank spot on the HX? Thanks!
  4. i did see the option for "position" which it kind of 'forced' if I selected FS2... unless there's another place to set it that I didn't see, I'm pretty sure that was set as you've indicated it should be. Either way, for the moment, I am taking datacommando's advice and trying a different expression pedal. Pretty sure I can still return the Moog. Thanks!
  5. hi - thanks - I did manage to get that to stop... I think it was the polarity setting on the moog exp pedal (i reset and restored).. I've updated topic... it works now, but only switches between 0 and 100% - nothing in between?
  6. moog expression pedal - TRS cable i have switch on moog set to 'other' have tried polarity both ways on helix only does 0% or 100% no smooth swell in between any tips much appreciated!
  7. Hi - 1. had a few incidents where playing through helix and there was a very loud pop, then no audio. had to restart to get audio back. have had several weird things happen when looping. Re-installed update, happened again. did another complete wipe/update/restore and was fine for a few weeks 2. last night, looping fine for several songs then could not make the loop stop. had to switch to an empty patch 3. tonight, looping at home. Same very loud pop, but this time audio came back, loop continued to play, but now the pop happened many more times - the first pop happened just playing to the loop (not recording), but it almost seemed like it recorded the pop, but the pop didn't happen in the same place every time, so can't really tell. of course, cannot replicate this .... switched patches and tried looping again and it was ok. has anyone had any similar problems? FWIW, I also have that problem where the reverbs turn off after the unit has been on for a while... no idea if these issues are related at all. Thanks in advance for any help!
  8. Hi - very happy to be able to put looper controls into a preset using command center! i used it at gig and went well, but realized i needed one more looper control. (since I sometimes have to record a section to solo over later, it's important to be able to use STOP to end the loop so it's ready when i need later in the song) Now have Undo, Rec/OD, Play, Stop problem is that my play and stop switches have to be pushed twice to respond.. i can't figure out anything wrong in the settings. after recording a loop, the buttons seem to work ok the first time, but if i stop the loop, then it takes 2 pushes on play to play it and then 2 pushes on stop to stop it. Any assistance would be much appreciated!

  10. Hi - thanks for helping..... I did try restarting while not connected to USB, but didn't help. Wound up doing a reset and was able to load a backup. I guess with computers there's always the risk of something like this and I prob. should have been better prepared. Normally, it's ok to power up/power down while connected to computer via USB? I'm guessing this was caused somehow by cutting power to the unit while it was connected to computer (Although Ive done that hundreds of times before)... or maybe just a weird fluke... curious to see what tech support says when they get back.
  11. PPS - when i try to load my backup, I also still get the HX edit message saying failed to initialize error -8201. may have to try full factory reset...
  12. PS HX edit shows code 8201 if that helps
  13. HI - restarted helix tonite (had used in AM with no problems) - I had it connected via usb to iMac with mojave... when i started back up, no presets in helix for my user 3,4,5, which is where all my current presets are (were)... factory ones are there and some really old ones in User 1 and 2. HX edit says failed to initialize... have already restarted once, but they didn't come back.... I can load backup I guess, but haven't backed up in a couple of weeks and had made a bunch of presets i really loved.... Never had anything like this happen before and didn't think I needed to back up that often... lesson learned, I guess If anyone has any ideas on how to revive the missing ones, please LMK! Thank you!
  14. Thank you for confirming that... I guess it's a road trip to the service center! As an expert, do you have any info/insight for deciding between getting this fixed of ponying up for a powercab? Thanks!
