  1. I have recently purchased a BOSS WL-T. Very low latency and works great til now. No problems whatsoever
  2. I have my mic in gain at 9 dB Not sure why actually but on the mixer I seem to have around the same level as the other mics that are connected directly to the mixer. I go XLR out at mic level. I do wonder why mic lever seems a lot quieter than the mic directly to the table (it seems about 9 dB but it could be a bit more or less) As you can see I haven't gone very precise about this, no measurements. It sounds fine. Why use a compressor on voice?

    No Sound!

    Going back to an older firmware would sort out if it has anything to do with the latest.
  4. Why use a pre amp for vocals? If you wouldn't use the Helix for vocals you would plug the mic directly to the table. I'm not saying you shouldn't but are genuinely interested in the reason. I use the Helix for some vocal effects and started at first with a pre amp but have changed to using none. It works fine but I'm always wondering if I'm missing something
  5. Maybe I don't understand what you are doing but, can't you just use the output block volume to adjust between different patches?
  6. It seems you can only adjust the bitrate in the Apple driver, not in Windows. So 48kHz zeems to be what it is in Windwos
  7. Update (from the manual): Helix functions as a USB 2.0, multiple-input/output, 24-bit - 96kHz, low-latency audio interface for Windows® and Mac® computers, as well as for iPad and iPhone (with optional Apple Camera Connection Kit adapter), and is compatible with all major DAW software. NOTE: For USB audio operation on Windows® computers, it is necessary to download and install the Line 6 Helix ASIO® driver (see page 56). For Mac® computers, it is only necessary to download and install the Line 6 Mac® Core Audio driver if you desire audio sample rate operation at rates other than 48kHz (see page 56). These drivers are available from line6.com/software. There is no driver installation necessary for an Apple iPad or iPhone. This seems to imply the USB is set to 48kHz as standard and can be changed thrue the driver software. Don't ypu just love manuals?
  8. I just read in the manual the I/O sample rate setting does not affect USB sample rate operation. It doesn't say what the USB sample ratie is though.
  9. Register the Variax at www.theguitarvaults.com and mark it stolen. I had a guitar stolen from me in Sweden a couple of years ago. I registered it there and it actually came back to me about a year later. It surfaced at a pawn shop. To be fair, I was the first ever to get my guitar back since the start of the site a little over a year before. It's free to register one guitar so go over there and do it. YOU NEVER KNOW!
  10. Now that's more like it!
  11. Why not just use Helix Edit with a laptop connected to your Helix Floor through USB? It doen't really make sense to use Helix Native to this end. Unless I'm missing something, of course.
  12. I wouldn't do that if I were you. Your gig will most certainly get messed up by him. Keep the sound guy happy and friendly and you might have a chance he does a good job is my motto!
