  1. Reason being is that i'm already using L and R outputs of my helix to send signal to my 2 Amps but i want to send a signal also to the guitar input (mono) of my TC voice live unit so it can register what chords i'm playing for the vocal harmony function.. is it ok to plug a mono lead in there on the helix headphone socket?.. the signal wont be heard at all, just purely a signal in for the TC voicelive
  2. The only option i can see is to purchase it again, which i’m pretty sure wasn’t the idea of receiving updates ;)
  3. So i have a patch set up with stomp assignments and i have one to activate the tesselator (momentary) using a ‘bypass’ assignment.. i’m trying to assign another footswitch to switch tesselator off when not needed but having trouble as it wont let me assign another bypass switch (which i would assign to latching) How can you use it in a patch and be able to turn it off when not needed?? Thanks
  4. Great! Thankyou, Lots of things to try.. will get onto this later today
  5. Great update so far - only updated native today (to check the new stuff) and will do my helix over the weekend.. i quite like the tape saturation thingy, for some very vintage vibe.. thanks Line 6!
  6. I think maybe you have direct monitoring selected on the scarlet, so you are hearing the dry guitar signal as well as the helix signal.?
  7. i wonder if helix would be able to convert the guitar signal to midi now that it has polyphonic pitch shifting (does it mean that it also has chord recognition? Similar to how midi guitar works on computer and ios).. then you could have guitar synth with the onboard oscillators or midi out to hardware.. It might be something for down the track
  8. you’ll probably find that unless you have pretty basic presets you wont be able to just add the new pitch effects.. If you want the pitch before the amp it’s best to load the amp and post-effects on the bottom path and pre-effects incl pitch on path 1
  9. Dont know if they really exist but virtual capo down an octave , mix to around 50 % and real capo your guitar on the 5th fret.. pick some chords (sounds better picking than strumming) virtual 12 string Baritone guitar!
  10. same thing happened to me the moment i updated once.. (back in the new snapshot update days) still haven’t been able to get it fixed as the repair place is a few hours away (and i’m a poor musician lol). i just survived with helix edit.. i can’t imagine it was the updating process that killed it but it was strange timing
  11. Basically, how i approach it is, if you find one that sounds usable and that you like, copy it to a user bank, tweak it to your liking and rename it as you want.
  12. I get where you are coming from.. those examples you gave have a specific sort of sound, especially the jazz chorus: I haven’t been able to replicate that beautiful chorus and I’m unsure as to why line 6 didn’t model that as part of the amp/cab
  13. 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
  14. 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..
  15. 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.
  16. 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) the end i just have to use my gf’s windows computer which works fine
  17. Haha at least they are indistinguishable not inferior
  18. it’s obvious..Bad Horsie pedal?!
  19. 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)
  20. frozen at rebuilding preset 521 even after multiple restarts! version 2.91.0 where to now??
  21. 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..
  22. 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 ?
  23. Try the train wreck amp.. that brings out a bit of bit for Strat sounds
  24. dont give them any more work to do for heavens sake, let them get this update out soon ;)
  25. 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
