  1. Did you work on my JTV59, psarkissian? Just got a chance to retrieve it this weekend. Activates when I have it in use on my Helix presets, turns off when I don't and am using the mags. Was able to transfer my settings from my other JTV59 to it, no problems. Need to run thru my live show to see how all goes, but seems to be working fine. Thank you, greatly appreciate it!
  2. Here's the link. I ended up offsetting the lack of volume issue on my FRFR snapshots (which I use for exclusively for JTV59 acoustic stuff as I'd mentioned, prefer the speaker modeling for anything electric) by using a gain block, adjusting the IR level, and adjusting the output level at the end of the chain. Probably not the ideal solution, but it seems to work, and no spikes when switching snapshots. Good enough for me for now...Will know more when I get to rehearsing and gigging.
  3. Sorry for the duplicate post here, as I posted the following on my original thread elsewhere and don't mean to hijack this one, but... Finally got some time to take a look at this last night. Probably chalk it all up to user error on my part, sheer ignorance, or both. I deleted every block from my preset and still had the issue when switching from a snapshot using the PC112+ in FRFR mode to another snapshot using the PC112+ in speaker emulation mode. Loud "pop" on the PC112+ and the input light goes red for a second. Looked at the Powercab tab in HX Edit. "Speaker Level" on the FRFR snapshot defaults to 0dB. "Speaker Level" on the speaker emulation snapshot defaults to -15dB. Not surprised then that there is a volume spike when changing snapshots, because that's a volume spike (duh). When I say "defaults" I do so because I don't remember setting the values, and if I start with a blank preset, those are the values that show up for FRFR and speaker mode. If "speaker level" is set to the same dB or even relatively close, no pops or volume spikes. Yea!

  5. Been gigging with these for years. Dependable, durable, flexible, feels like a regular guitar cable... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GVXIXFI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. Been busy with work, studio, upcoming gigs...haven't had time to test things properly yet. Planning on removing everything from my preset and adding things back in one at a time to see where / when the problem shows up. Also, I'm using a JTV59 and switching between the variax modelled acoustic voodoo and the mags when this is happening - wondering if that's not part of the problem? You guys? I need to test with a normal guitar.
  7. Tested as well, same experience as Tick1. Thanks for posting!
  8. Yes, ideascale. Will do. Just was wondering if there was anyone out there interested in the same. At least I found two that aren't. ;-) Thanks for the info!
  9. Woulda thought more people would be on this one, particularly after three years. Having selectable multiple outputs instead of just the blanket "everything" multiple outputs would be of great value for my live setup particularly now that I've added a Powercab 112+. I use USB for iPad audio sent FOH via 1/4" and don't want my guitar signal going to that output, just want my guitar going to XLR to FOH and AES to PC112+. Can do the split path workaround for a lot of my stuff but some of my presets have too much going on and I can't spare a path. One can dream...
  10. Opened support ticket. JTV in transit back to Line 6 Central for medical attention.
  11. That's the plan then once I find some time. Thanks, rd2rk!
  12. I've got one path on the Helix with the input set to Variax and the output set to PC112 FRFR - this is my acoustic chain. Have a second path on the Helix with the input set to Variax mags as input and output set to PC112 Speaker modeling - this is my electric chain. I use snapshots on the Helix to switch between the two. I use gain blocks at the front of each chain to do so. Snapshot one for acoustic is top path at 0dB while the lower path is at -120dB, snapshot two for electric is the reverse. Maybe there is a better way to do this? Possibly user error on my part? Reason I assumed it was a powercab issue is because it works fine, no spike, out of the Helix XLR outs. I will record and / or video something as soon as time permits... Thanks for the info, rd2rk!
  13. Been using my JTV59 / Helix / PC112+ for the last several gigs. Tried using PC112+ in FRFR mode and IRs in Helix. Didn't dig that much, but didn't spend a lot of time on it either. Thought about moving the IRs to the PC112+. Didn't get that far. Tried the PC112+ speaker emulations first. Fantastic! Finally feels like I am playing an actual amp, very happy with my sound on stage. Tried using XLR out of PC112+ to FOH, rather than XLR out of the Helix to FOH as I was doing prior. Was not as pleased with the XLR out of the PC112+ to FOH. I use a lot of 4x12 IRs in the Helix and the PC112+ is only emulating a 1x12 setup so I really wasn't too surprised there. Back to tapping the Helix directly to FOH. I also use the PC112+ in FRFR mode when using the JTV59 for any acoustic stuff. Sounds great on stage as well. So I am using the PC112+ for stage monitoring only, but I really dig it - and it can get plenty loud to keep up with the rest of the guys! My only issue is the loud volume spike that you can get if you are in the middle of hitting anything on the guitar and switch from FRFR mode to speaker. I have to make sure I am not sending any signal from my guitar to the PC112+ when switching. More than a bit of a problem, but I can work with it for now. Hopefully they address the issue soon, can't imagine I am the only one to run across this when playing live. Sold some more gear I wasn't using and scored a second PC112+. Haven't used the two together yet. One's at the practice pad, one's at home. Soon. Looking forward to checking out dual amp / dual speaker type setups. Oh yeah, and I only need to run one AES cable to the PC112+ from the Helix. Fabulous. Overall, very pleased!
  14. If I make the mistake off actually playing the guitar while simultaneously switching from FRFR mode to speaker modeling on the PC112+ from the Helix using my JTV59, look out! Massive volume spike. Makes it very difficult for live use. I have to make sure I am not playing for a split second and try to time my switch, for instance when going from some acoustic strumming on the JTV59 using FRFR on the PC112+ to a heavier electric rhythm using speaker modeling on the PC112+... think "Feel Like Makin' Love" by Bad Company. Results in a volume spike that will make you, and everyone else, require an underwear change if you're not careful on the switch. Anyone else come across this? Work around? Issue being addressed with a firmware update? Using the XLR out to FOH from the Helix doesn't result in this when doing the same thing, so I know it's a Powercab issue... Thanks!
