  1. I think 'slightly more powerful' is a bit of an understatement. In any case my 2011iMac just died so what do you do, go out and buy a new machine with a processor in which is already being phased out? Plus, it was a birthday present from my partner, she wouldn't know about compatibility issues. Plenty of companies have issued updates to be M1 and Big Sur compatible but Line 6 have said nothing on the matter since September.
  2. Unfortunately I've had to stop using Native for the this reason. Due to lockdown, I only play online with Jamulus in the WorldJams every Saturday live to Facebook Youtube and Twitch. We mostly play covers so patch per song is usually the case. Until my new Mac arrived used Native extensively, now sadly I use the built-in Mainstage FX but the results are almost as good, perhaps though not as flexible. Still use my HX FX as a midi controller though, that works fine. L6 have known about Big Sur since September an the M1 processors since at least November but no progress apparently.
  3. I agree with other posters n this thread. I have Native hosted in Logic X and MainStage on a new M1 MacMini running OS11. It runs but I don't use it at the moment as it is so slow.
  4. Apple announced OS 11 3 months ago. Line 6 issued a statement back in September about OS 11 compatibility. Now that devices are shipping with OS11 pre-installed, has L6 made any progress with their support for the new OS - and also now the new M1 chipset?
  5. Carl., did you ever resolve this? I am trying to control Native in Logic X with my HX FX which happily sends midi messages but Native doesn't seem to see any.
  6. Any ideas why my Logic Pro X is not detecting my HX Effects and auto assigning controllers? I have tested the midid signal using MIDI monitor and all signals are being detected. If I go through the learn process in Logic's Controller assign window it detects a button press but HX Native is not receiving any midi.
  7. Forget it, I solved it. I hadn't ejected the other image so it was loading from that pkg even though I had double clicked on the new DMG. lesson learned!
  8. Just bought the HX Effects. Instantly downloaded and installed 2.82 Edit. Now I find that there is a path to upgrade the firmware which involves going back to 2.51 Edit. Uninstalled 2.82, installed 2.51 and created backup as instructed. Now, every time I try to install 2.82 for the next step, it only installed 2.51 again from whichever download I try. I even tried 2.80 but no, the 2.51 installer insists on talking over. What can I do?
  9. Thank you I will check it out.
  10. I’m a little tired of my setup. I have the dream rig, hd500, dt25, jtv59p. The number of permutations of fx, preamp, power amps, cab sims, guitars downloadable tones for everything has just created a mush of poor tones. I recently gigged with an old squire strat plugged straight into the dt25 with no external fx and it was wonderful. I have been lucky in the last 2 weeks to have been able to buy my first ever real Gibson Les Paul (2015 Classic in sea foam green) and I just love it. OK, stop drivelling, here’s the question. I think I’d like to dump the hd500 and the variax but I do need some fx such as delays and reverbs. I also need to be able to switch between the 4 loaded DT models and channel a/b. Would the HX Stomp be an ideal new box for me or something else without amp modelling but with midi switching capability?
  11. DT25 ->- AES/EBU ->- HD500 ->- VDI ->- JTV59P is my dream rig but I've become more and more frustrated with tone quality for live work over the last few years. Last night I went wireless straight to the DT25 and just used the guitar volume to drive the amp harder when I needed to. Only FX was the built-in reverb. There's a lot to be said for the back-to-basics approach. Everyone in the band said that I had a great sound. So here's the question - do I keep the HD500 as a multiFX box in the DTs send return and ditch all of the confusing modelling or replace the HD500 with something like the M13? I'm even thinking about a proper Les Paul instead of the Variax but I do love the DT25 head and 2 cabs.
  12. I have the 'dream rig'. I have become more and more frustrated trying to get decent usable live tones from the rig to the point where I'm thinking of chopping it in for a guitar, an amp, and a couple of FX pedals. Glen Delaune has some wonderful sounding patches which I bought but when I changed the amps in the patches to the 'Pre' version, the sound died. When I try to ramp up the volume, it sounds like I'm playing through an old 5w Tandy (RadioShack in the US) blown speaker underwater. Now, if I leave the patches as they are; using the non-Pre amps models, the sound is great. My question therefore is why should I bother with the Pre's? Am I using the valves in my DT25 head as they were intended or am I in some what bypassing all of the goodness in the rig by using the full modelled amps? For reference here is my setup; JTV59p connected with VDI to HD500 connected with AES/EBU via L6 link to DT25 head connected with 2 x mono 6.3mm to 2 x L6 1x12 cabs Global inputs on the HD500 are set to Varian 1 and Aux 2
  13. Well i've ride and tried and I can't seem to separate the L6Link from the left XLR.
  14. Hi Matt, I wondered if you’d seen my post in the dream rig forum re output routing.  I figure you might know the answer?

    1. Matt_Brown


      I didn’t wade in as I recon the Line 6 guys know more than me. In my understanding as you are running ‘mono’ to your (one) amp you can route the L6 signal to (say) right and then take a line from the left out (jack to xlr) to the PA. So, you basically have left and right as two paths. Choose which is which in the mixer page on the Edit programme.

      Alternatively, put an FX block in one of your paths and take a line out the FX jack.

      Happy routing!

      Thanks Matt, I’ll try it tonight. 

  15. I’m sure this must be possible, I just haven’t figured it out yet so i’m calling on the wise. i would like my acoustic patches to route out of the XLRs to FOH with little or nothing going going via the L6 link to my DT25. I would like all electric patches to go to the DT with only the Direct out on the DT feeding my FOH. In essence the question is, can the HD’s output be routed on a patch by patch basis?
