  1. it might be a bit more subtle than some switches , try different monitoring maybe before re-installing
  2. i think splice introduces some random tape pitch flutuation. just every now and then
  3. yes .. i did offline.. d/load the helix editor and firmware, follow back-up steps.. when you open the updater (included in the helix d/load) select offline mode and direct it to the firmware file
  4. i'm loving the mid gain stuff .. it feels very good for nasty in your face old time rock n roll.. haha if you modern metal guys need to get back to your roots sometime, you'll be at home here
  5. has anyone tried these? how do you find they work? did they really impart the flavour of the selected guitar? and also can you load them as an IR in helix.? thanks
  6. ohh that cosmos echo.. can get lost in that one, set the feed back just on the edge of self oscilatting and let it take you away 😉ðŸ‘
  7. here too!! :) just gotta find time to play with the new toys- i hadn't updated since 2.10 ;)
  8. oh ok!! oops and thanks.. when it loaded before i only saw the end posts .. great thanks :)
  9. hi is there a release notes?? be really great if they posted one on here with everything included .. i'm just on my phone currently and when i go to check the "read more" on the downloads area it wont go anywhere.. i'd like to check out what got released
  10. i prefer dropping to Fbb 😉
  11. i remember seeing a long helix thread somewhere else on another forum but can't remember the site, i think devs from line 6 were also posting there if that helps.. thanks
  12. thankfully none 😂.. just joking.. actually none are that similar..
  13. yeah, just think of helix cabs as a cab and mic that you can go into the room and tweak around a bit, move the mic etc.. the IR is like - the engineer did the work for you.. if you dont like the sound tell him to go back and try something different (load another IR) 😉😂
  14. ir's will shape the tone but wont work magic in creating the sounds you are after... as i think you found with the bass ir- you'll still need an octave pedal..
  15. or add an eq block at the start of your chain that you can flick on if need be..
  16. if they are simple patches you may find just a quick adjustment on the helix amp/speaker block patches will get you in the ball park if you get some sound check time.. assuming you are just using a minimal amount of presets to get thru the gig.. usually it wiil be drop the bass/treble and boost mids and maybe drop gain a bit too when you are up at gig volume -as was mentioned above
  17. with mine it cut until i re started helix
  18. i've had the no sound thing happen 3 or 4 times since i got helix (about 18 months i guess) and i'm on 2.20 .. will be updating with this new update coming and see if it happens again
  19. it would be doable i'm assuming ..if they added the capability. probably it would need to be on a different dsp channel than the one the amp/cab is loaded but i'm sure there are people that would have dsp 2 free in a lot of presets and would like to run a nice convolution reverb (there's plenty available)
  20. no. i dont think you can sorry.. there is a pretty short length limit to the ir's in helix, not long enough for even a very very short reverb i think
  21. just a quick try.. try the 1x12 field coil cab with 160 ribbon mic with soupro amp with presence off, treble down to about 3 or 4 and tone about 1/2 way ..or the mail order twin amp with similar presence/treble setting.. it made my strat sound reasonably jazz toned anyway 😉 edit- i'm favouring the mail order twin..take the bias up to about 8 for a rounder tone too.. i also added a 63 spring between amp and cab now and an LA studio comp at the end of chain. peak/reduc- 4.7 gain- 4.5 mix-35 and level +2 to mainly boost output and a slight thickening sorry can't post a preset- no computer handy today
  22. those polytones look like they have a pretty small speaker -10" maybe? about the size of a roland cube- speaking of which , you could try the roland jc amp too.. but just pick a suitable small speaker and maybe eq the amp pretty flat and try different mics/placement first.. you might get a fair way there with a mic selection- i'm guessing a ribbon or neuman condensor will do it. then you may need to further tweak the amp and maybe if you are still not happy add 10 band eq band parametric if you are feeling adventurous. i'll have a try to cop the tone later if i get the chance but i'm away from home and only a strat handy atm
  23. maybe try a twin, hiwatt or archon but thru a smaller single speaker cab to start.. as long as it isn't a strat you might get close with some eq tweaking 😉
