  1. 4CM rules with the Pod Go. I don't have any pronlem leveling or tweaking. Maybe I am used to it. I have it set up as an FX unit but at a moments notice, I can flip to using it for the amp models. It is really pretty simple and as someone said, with the FX loop it goes back and forth with ease.
  2. Same with me...I use the Helix rack for my main rig and this is a great small gig/rehearsal rig, I would love it if I could swap that eq out for something else. I don't think it would be that big of an issue for them to pull this off.
  3. I went ahead and picked one up and really like it. The annoying thing about it and hopefully they may change it is even though you can use up to four FX blocks (which I use for FX, 4CM with an external amp) there is a fifth one, the parametric EQ, that you can turn on or off but would be nice if it were optional as I rarely use it. For anyone new to this, as an example, I bypass the amp/speaker cab and just use the FX. I can use a distortion, tremolo, delay and verb and that's itI can change any one of those to something else but always four. Then there is the parametric EQ, which you can't swap out for any other FX. You get a choice of eqs but you can't swap it out for say, a chorus or compressor. It would be nice if they change it at some point. rick
  4. I have a HELIX Rack and floorboard and love it of course. Sometimes it is overkill for certain gigs, rehearsals. I use only the FX on it and then have the amp models as a backup, which I have never needed. I was looking at the POD Go and saw something about it always having an amp model in every preset which is something I probably would never use. Is it worth while to get one just to use for FX? I generally love Line 6 FX (the reverbs are somewhat "meh") and I sold all of my pedals except a couple that I can integrate with any Helix stuff and it looks like the Go has an FX loop too. What do you think as far as using it just for FX or is there another unit that would be better for that like the Stomp or HX FX? thanks in advance, rick

    Clean sounds

    Oh Yeah,,,,,computer version means Native. And my interface, the Antelope zen is a really good one. Thanks QWERTY42. I downloaded your clean strat tone and at first it had the same issue.....it sounded kind of overdriven and again, not in the clipping sense. Anyway, I backed off the gain and it was clean. The odd thing was I boosted the gain on the sample and it stayed clean. Not sure what this means but at least I have a clean tone now to work with. Muchos Gracias!/ I really appreciate your help on this! rick

    Clean sounds

    I'm using a Zen Studio by Antelope. I thought of the input being too high but it sounds more like tube "warmth/Distorion" rather than clipping. It is hard to get enough level into protools without the gain on the Helix amp model turned up to at least 11:00. The two cleanest models I am guessing are the Jazz Chorus and the Twin and I am very familiar with both of those amps. I just can't get the Helix to sound like them. Even the deluxe model sounds great when it is doing the down and dirty but I have not been able to do the cclean that I am familiar with. I am pretty sure it must be me as I can't imagine Helix not being able to pull it off as they do everything else so damn well.

    Clean sounds

    I have a Helix rack that I use live but for FX only as I like my tube preamps. The issue is on my computer when I try to record with the Helix computer version. I can't seem to get a clean tone. I have a real twin and have owned Deluxes, Vox's etc. over the years and with most amps you have to really have them up pretty loud to get them to break up....like up to five on the deluxe and the twin? Sometimes it just won't break up. Now i like distorted warm sounds so don't get me wrong. But with the Helix and the clean sounds, there is still a little bit of grit even at low gain settings. I am using an old vintage tele and the pickups are not that hot. Same with my Les Paul or Epiphone Casino. I was trying to do a jazz tone on a 335 and same deal. It is not an unpleasant tone at all but I would love to clean it up. Am I mssing something or has Helix not pulled this one off? And yes, I have tried different speaker emulations...

    Tuner not working

    Where do I find 2.91? When I go to downloads it only has 2.9.

    Tuner not working

    I have a HELIX Rack and since the update to 2.90 the tuner has been weird. I turn it on and the tuner will not work as though nothing is coming into it. I also notice that if a block is on, the footswitch on my control will turn it off on the screen but it is still on sound-wise. I can also use the bypass button on the rack and I can see the block go off but it is still on. If I turn the unit off a few times it eventually starts working. Both the tuner and the FX block issue. Is this something that I can fix by re-updating or do I need to send it bakc. Since i lost all of my gigs from covid, if I have to send it back, now is the time to do without the Helix! thanks rick

    Clipping in 2.9

    Thanks everybody. You guys are great. I totally forgot that the update changes the globals, I looked and yep, I needed to not do a global restore but just change the loop setting on FX 1. You all saved me hours of frustration and swapping out tubes, cables, etc. rick

    Clipping in 2.9

    Not sure how to do that and didn’t know I needed to. Would something in the global settings create the clipping? That would be great if the solution is so simple!

    Clipping in 2.9

    Anybody experiencing any clipping with the new firmware? I run a Synergy 2 preamp out of my Helix Rack and maybe it is coincidence butall of a sudden when I am in really high gain territory I am hearing an electronic clipping. Since I am using it in FX Loop I, I can now see the clipping in the icon as it is red almpst all of the time. thanks rick
  15. Are you saying that instead of using Dimarzios or Duncans, etc. for magnetics that I can use some kind of virtual pickup?
