    DELAY SPILLOVER WITH FX100??

    My Axe2 and Axe3 did spilover. I thought i had done the same somehow with my HD500. I guess not this inexpensive box.

    My FX100 will not respond.

    I had upgraded it when i purchased it . It was a guitar center floor model. 2.0 it seemed to work fine. now i cannot get my android to link with it at all. also, when i try to use line6 updater to update it, it is blank. It says choose device to update. but its a black screen with nothing to choose. no menu visible. this is getting really frustrating.

    Record Dry Signal and Wet signal at same time: With separate interface

    I did not bail. :) I wanted to be able to have lines out of the HELIX Wet and Dry without using helix for the interface. I got many things to try thanks to this thread. Using a Y split box is not answering the question, that's just going around it. I originally asked if it could be done in the box, and in fact it can, in more ways than one, and that's saying a lot for the HELIX's capability. It also tells me that the HELIX can replace the current modeler i have that I really never got along with. Sort of a Love/Hate relationship. Thanks to all for the helpful suggestions. I will try out all that was mentioned. It will help me to get to know the new unit. Please, no one else comment on this thread. My intention was never to waste anyone's time. I have gotten a wealth of suggestions to use. And I really do appreciate it. I look forward to getting better with the HELIX and also helping other new users to follow my path. Enough said. Cheers all, Phantom.

    Record Dry Signal and Wet signal at same time: With separate interface

    I want to try using HELIX for everything, but still need to use the old interface for certain purposes. Eventually I want to use just HELIX. I do want to try all these methods listed above just to learn the unit and its capabilities. I may still keep my interface until i am more comfortable with HELIX. Does that make sense? Not trying to get anyone upset at all. Enough said in this thread for now. If i have any difficulties, I will post what i tried. Hopefully, I wont have a problem. No one else need post here. Dont' want to waste anyone's time. Cheers, Phantom.

    Record Dry Signal and Wet signal at same time: With separate interface

    My HELIX Floor arrives this Wednesday. I really do appreciate all of your help. I think until i get into the Helix, it will be difficult to understand these methods. I sometimes record multi tracks at once for other bands, so the MOTU "buggy as it may be" must stay for now. But for most of my own personal music needs, I am going to start using the HELIX as an interface as well after i get to know it a bit better. Once it gets here, I am going to try to get it to send one effected output to Input 1 on my Interface, and another out from HELIX "uneffected Dry" to input 2 on my interface. Just to practice and try all the various methods discussed in this thread. Man, I know not all agree, but i do think it's awesome that all of you have good ideas on how to make this possible. I really want to ditch my other "expensive as hell" amp modeler. I have only 4 useable sounds from it, and that's only because one of my friends is a Heavy Hitter Analog Studio Guru and has owned every tube amp on the planet. He just takes one of my mediocre patches, spends about 5 minutes with it, and turns it into gold. For some reason, he can get Periphery Tones and MESHUGGAH tones easily that i have been chasing for 7 years with no luck. I know right now I am re reading this thread over and over, trying to figure out what you guys mean, but until i have the box it will be hard to understand the suggestions. I am not a good tweaker, which is why I decided to come back to Line6. I need something easier to tweak that won't overwhelm me with too many choices. After Wednesday, i will probably come right back here when i fail to get any of these suggestions to work due to me not knowing what the hell i am doing with a HELIX. But once i get good with it, I will do my best to help others that will be where i am now. Frustrated and ready to dive into something new. Again, I thank you all for being helpful. I am convinced that HELIX will be my new best friend in the studio and on the stage. I have a Powered PA speaker to use with it live. And as i said, The "Modeler" i currently have is a rack and needs their "expensive as hell" foot controller to be worth anything live. I am looking forward to learning this pedal. I know it will be a learning curve but it will be worth it. I will re read this thread when the box gets here, and i apologize in advance if right after i ask more stupid questions. I promise, if you guys can school me on how to get around this box, i would be more than happy to help others do it as well. I know the feeling of wasting night after night trying to get a good sound instead of just playing and having fun. I don't want anyone else to waste so much time as i did. I will chime in again prob Thursday or Friday night. Next weekend after talking with you guys again, I will be locked inside my room getting to know HELIX. Thanks again. Cheers , Phantom. In the past i owned Line6 PodXT Bean, Bass PodXT Bean, Spider III HD150, POD HD500, AMPLIFI FX100, "SeahorseDickSoup, SeahorseDickSoup II," , Now i am going for HELIX. Looking forward to doing more playing, and less tweaking.

    Record Dry Signal and Wet signal at same time: With separate interface

    I can record dry from the mic? Not sure i understand. I bit the bullet and Helix is on its way to me.

    Record Dry Signal and Wet signal at same time: With separate interface

    Why is the DSP limited if i split in the helix? Im not sure i understand. It cant be set up to utilize both chips? The reason for keeping my interface is complicated. Its a MOTU 896HD. Made to work on mac but my computer is Windows7. They did write a driver so motu can be used with windows but its buggy. Even if i try to change between 24/96 and 24/48 it crashes protools and requires several reboots. Switching between interfaces is even worse. If i can learn to use helix instead for everything maybe it will play nicer with Windows? I just dont know the Helix as an interface yet. My drums are Toontrack ez drummer controlled via midi from a boss dr770. Then there is guitars and bass currently going through my amp modeller. And i just need one mic input for vocals. Im really thinking if i give helix a shot i can make my home studio life easier

    Record Dry Signal and Wet signal at same time: With separate interface

    I do have an ABY Box, but was wondering if I could assign, say, XLR Left "Processed signal from processed path," XLR Right "Unprocessed dry signal from second path in HELIX" Is this not possible? If not, I might still consider getting it, but wanted to do it all inside the box. My patches are usually not that complicated for processed path, Compressor , Stomp, Amp, Cab , If its a lead preset, maybe reverb/delay, but thats about it.
  11. Greetings all, I have been using a multitude of amp modelers over the years and i have been frustrated with one in particular for the past 7 years. This has led me to come back to Line 6: The last product I used did not do it for me, but Helix has me thinking it may be time to come back. Only question i have i cannot seem to find a simple answer for. I have an over-bloated expensive as all hell, amp modeler which allows me to record a processed guitar and a dry signal "to be re amped later in software DAW" at the same time easily. Problem with it is it takes forever to tweak a usable sound out of it. Is there an easy way to assign a processed signal and Direct signal from the Helix into my interface. I do not want to use Helix for the interface. Currently with the other product I am looking to replace, it allows me to record both wet and dry out of the AES/EBU at the same time. Staying in the digital realm, No AD Conversion. If HELIX can do the same thing, i may try getting one, as i am sick of spending the majority of my time tweaking this monster with way too many choices, and want to spend more time playing my F*%king guitar. I read an article form Stevic "TFN" which really hit home. He tried the same product i currently use for 7 months, but i have been going around in a swamp of menus for 7 years. I have had enough. I just want something that I can tweak easily "Line6 has always been quick to get a good usable sound" but I need to be able to use my current interface as it is top notch. I just want to set up my patches on the HELIX to always send one processed signal to one input on my interface, and a non processed Dry signal to another input on my interface. Hopefully, both in at least 24/96 quality. Can someone with HELIX Floor experience explain? IF so, I am going to get into a row boat, row over to the other ship, try sailing it for a bit, and if it works for me and sounds good?? JUMP SHIP!!!!! HELIX FLOOR may be the best thing both for studio and gigs in the future. My current modeler is a rack and would need their proprietary expensive as hell pedal board. Sorry for the long post. I am just really frustrated trying to figure out if its possible, cause all i see is people using HELIX for their recording interface and i don't want to do that. Thanks, in advance for the help. Cheers, Phantom
