  1. I think it is not possible to sync the digital signal with midi, midi is much to coarse.
  2. How do I tell Helix that it should be the slave? I don't see anything related to this in the settings or in the manual. Usually I use Helix as Master and my RME fireface 800 audio interface as slave. Now I wanted to try it the other way round, but the sync is not locked.
  3. Just for curiosity I tried connecting directly to all USB ports yesterday, but every time Windows recognizes "2 - Line6 helix", not Line6 helix. This is strange, because in the past another port would give another name, like "3 - Line6 helix", "4 - Line6 helix" etc.. When there is no Windows guru who knows about the logic of naming midi ports in windows here on the forum, I'll have to live with this quirk. A bit annoying... actually the problem occured when I stopped using the hub for the update.
  4. I think you misunderstood the problem. It is not about using an USB hub or not, but about using a different port than which was used during first installation or update of the Helix. When you attach an USB device to a new port, Windows assumes it is another device altogether, even if of the exact same type of the one you just disconnected. So the problem will recur as soon as I change the port. Sorry, but I don't care about the "rule #1", I've been using Helix with a hub for about 2 years now without any problems.
  5. I connected my helix floor for the 2.82 update as required directly to an USB port of a windows laptop. But normally I have to connect it to an USB hub, because my laptop doesn't have enough USB ports. When the Helix is connected to the USB hub, it is recognized as "2 - Line 6 Helix" by Windows, not as "Line 6 Helix". therefore all my Ableton Live sets don't recognize Helix anymore. To repair this I would have to change the midi input in all these sets, which is a lot of unnecessary work. My question - is it possible to remove "Line 6 Helix" in the Windows device manager, so that "2- Line 6 Helix" is automatically renamed to "Line 6 Helix"? I don't see it there, see screenshot.
  6. I'd like to reset the LFO of the sweep echo, but hitting the tap button doesn't work.
  7. On my JTV-89, one of the length compensation (intonation) screws of the saddle is moving, because the part that holds it is not at the right place. the displaced part looks like a wire or snap ring, it's not easy to see because it is so tiny. is it possible to repair this? I cannot move the wire, but maybe there is a trick to do this. I think it was done wrong when the guitar was assembled and I never noticed until now.
  8. Ah, thanks for clarifying this, I didn't know that!
  9. Every now and then when I power on my Helix floor unit, the output volume is much lower than usual, maybe -30 dB instead of -15 dB. I use the S/PDIF output which is connected to a RME fireface 800 audio interface. A Behringer ADAT interface ADA8200 is connected to the RME, too. Helix is the clock master, RME the slave. A restart of the Helix solves the problem, but most of the time first I suspect the drummer and the singer to be too loud... ;-) Does anyone know this bug, too? The strange thing is that this only happens in our rehearsal room, not in the studio. In the studio I use the same Helix floor unit connected to another RME fireface 800 (with additional Behringer ADA8200, too). It's quite difficult to locate the problem. Maybe it's the power supply, cables, ....? Yesterday there was a new problem: possibly a clock sync problem, with weird digital noise. I'm a bit afraid there will be bad surprises at our next gig... :-)
  10. I have the same question: Must Helix be the clock master, or can it be the clock slave? I think my RME audio interface shows me that the sync is not stable when Helix is the clock slave, the s/pdif LED is shortly flashing every 2 seconds or so, but I'm not sure. Sad that noone knows about this.
  11. Every now and then when I power on the Helix, the output volume is much lower than usual, maybe -30 dB instead of -15 dB. I use the SPDIF output which is connected to a RME fireface 800 audio interface. A restart of the Helix solves the problem, but most of the time first I suspect the drummer and the singer to be too loud... ;-) Does anyone know this bug, too?
  12. oops. I downloaded the 2.60 firmware by mistake, not the hd edit. this explains why I GOT the firmware, not the hd edit updater... ;-) ok, now it's working! thank you
  13. Download of HX Edit 2.60 gives me a file called Helix_FLOOR_v2_60_0_bundle.hxf, about 3 MB. this is not an .exe installer, what am I supposed to do with it? Cannot be opened by Windows 10.
  14. Sending Midi program change, bank select and CC69 (snapshot) from Bitwig to Helix often kills the Helix. the display of the helix gets empty/black, and there is no sound any more. Frightening. this didn't happen before, I wonder if it is related to a bitwig or helix update. Using Bitwig 2.3.2, Helix Firmware 2.50.0 and Windows 10.
  15. I don't understand why Line6 didn't put extra labelling there where you can read it without lying on the floor. The pod HD500 has this extra labelling. But maybe the thought it doesn't look nice... :rolleyes:
