  1. wow i opened mine within 30 seconds of arriving.. ah well everyone is different.. at least you know you still have the latest model ;) I find going in to the aux in with my acoustic gives me the richest signal/sound
  2. I forgot to say also I go into powered pa speakers depending on the situation.. I’m not sure how your smaller setup will stand alongside your band mates setup tho..
  3. Going straight in the front of those amps isn”t ideal.. I have a fender deluxe 90 transistor amp and it has a power amp input/return on the rear of the amp.. if I go into that from my helix it sounds a lot better than if I go in the front. If both those amps have return inputs at the back I’d try using them both together, spread the load a bit .. the helix is pretty versatile.
  4. i can relate to this.. i have a windows laptop that wont connect to line 6 thru their software and i have tried fixing it for hours (server error message)..in the end i just have to use my gf’s windows computer which works fine
  5. Haha at least they are indistinguishable not inferior
  6. it’s obvious..Bad Horsie pedal?!
  7. Thankyou datacommando I managed to finally get things going again with a restore to factory presets restart and then reloaded my set lists minus the one with the corrupt preset (I’ll try sort that out later..) Turned on my helix again this morn and it wanted to rebuild all the presets again! Hoping it won’t be doing that every time I turn it on (sweating)
  8. frozen at rebuilding preset 521 even after multiple restarts! version 2.91.0 where to now??
  9. hi, are you saying that the new hotfix updater allows you to look for a local firmware d/load? .. i wasn’t able to update to firmware 2.9 yet as my computer wont seem to connect to line6 updater sign in anymore.. be great if i can just d/load the firmware and update locally.. it was a process you could do in the past but seems i couldn’t on the new hx edit..
  10. There’s probably lots of little adjustments you can make rather than anything big .. cleanish boost in front of amp (kinky boost?) Use a ribbon mic, hi/lo cuts, studio compressor near end of chain (maybe at around 50% mix works better for me) Pickup height adjustment on guitar ?
  11. Try the train wreck amp.. that brings out a bit of bit for Strat sounds
  12. dont give them any more work to do for heavens sake, let them get this update out soon ;)
  13. i hate to be the party pooper rain on the parade sort of guy but sadly ‘reliable and trouble free’ has not been my experience. Starting with a non functioning soft touch button, a dead mic input and now a dead jog wheel i’m trying to put aside money for shipping and repairs.. it is pretty un-usable at the moment except for plug and playing my existing presets unless i cart my laptop around.. it hasn’t had a hard gigging life and i still love it, it just doesn’t love me
  14. oh i thought it has been open quite a while..? i bought something a few weeks back
  15. yes i often go into the aux in of various things.. often if it is a modelling amp it bypasses everything (including vol knobs eq etc) and i even use speaker blocks on my helix.. my experience is mostly with a roland cube and it works fine
