  1. I’ve had both an hx stomp, and now a stomp xl, and my expression pedal is not working for swells. I plugged it into the expression 1/2 on the stomp, and then added a volume block to my patch. I tried putting my volume block at the beginning of my signal chain, after my amp, and at the very end. I also tried messing with the global settings. My issue is that it works for turning up and down my volume, but even though it’s before my reverb and delays, it shuts off the echoes and delays when I roll it back. I want the echoes and delay to continue decaying after I turn down my volume. Instead, it starts turning off my reverb and delay instantly as soon as I begin to roll back on my volume pedal. And this keeps happening regardless of where I put the volume block in my signal chain. I also turned up my decay time on my reverb block as far as it will go, and my volume block is still shutting off the decay. What do I need to do to get the volume block to work for swells?
  2. The DigiTech whammy is on the Pitch/Synth section. It would be really awesome to see the Bass Synth Wah on the helix software.
  3. Hi. I've recently bought a Helix HX to pimp up my violin and viola. So far I do like many of the presets, But, in my band I have also a strong need for the string effect in some of my songs. String should be a multi copy of my tone with a little touch of detune, to simulate an orchestra. Is this possible on the Helix HX? I assume this should be combined with reverb and may be also some delay and chorus. These effects I know how to add. Hope some one can come up with a solution. Thanks in advance. "Chipmunk"
  4. Happened with every firmware version. After some use, when moving a block in hx edit crashes the connection with the helix fx, the unit freezes. Then i have to reboot the unit to reconect. No usb hub. Is this a known issue?
  5. Hello, my cover band is playing Just What I Needed from the cars. I would like to play the synth melody on the guitar. Any recommendations on how to get the synth close? I am synth challenged, LOL.
  6. What is the reason that Line 6 separates the newer Helix effects from the so-called Legacy effects such as those in the M9 / M13 pedals? There are a few Legacy effects that I would use but wonder if the quality of these is not up to par with the Helix choices. If that is the case, why hasn't Line 6 updated those effects? There are some older effects that are not available in the Helix section of HX.
  7. Hi Everyone, I'm planning on getting the Helix HX and a Boss ES-8 for redoing my pedalboard and have a few questions on what I'd like to do with it. For me, this is very confusing and I might be overthinking it, but if it works, I'd have a great rig. I know this topic has been discussed before, but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. Here's a bullet point rundown of what I'm planning and what I THINK I need to do to make this work. I will be using the 4 cable method with the Boss ES-8 to take advantage of having my effects be either in front of the amp and/or the effects loop on my Mesa Boogie Mark V 90 Head. I will be using an RJM Mini Amp Gizmo to change the channels on my head (and possibly other functions) from the ES-8 using MIDI. I will be using 3 or 4 standard pedals in my rig and hopefully the Helix HX, as well. In the Boss ES-8, I'd have the standard pedals in loops one through 3 (or 4 depending). Now, ideally, I would like the HX to be in loops 5 AND 6 using the HX 4 cable method so I can have some HX effects in front of my amp and other HX effects in the effects loop (either at the same time or one at a time depending on the patch). It would not be set up like this all the time, but using MIDI from both units, I believe I could create patches on the HX that would utilize this feature, and then a patch on the ES-8, through MIDI, would call up the patch on the HX and route it accordingly to the proper outputs of the ES-8 along with any of my stomp boxes I already have for that patch. So, the ES-8 would be the conductor in all of this. For instance, on the ES-8, loop 5 would be the HX effects before the amp and loop 6 would be the HX effects after the amp. If this does work, I'm thinking the routing would look like this: ES-8 Loop 5 (HX effects before the amp) = ES-8 Loop 5 Send --> HX L/Mono In HX Send 1 --> ES-8 Loop 5 Return ES-8 Loop 6 (HX effects after the amp) = ES-8 Loop 6 Send --> HX Return 1 HX Output L/Mono --> ES-8 Loop 6 Return I know this is way overblown, complicated, and possibly unnecessary, but in my head I would have a ton of options for routing all available effects before or after my amp. Programming the MIDI from the RJM Amp Gizmo, Helix HX and ES-8 is a topic for another day lol. Thank you all so much and I apologize for the super long post.
  8. Hi all, i am still learning to know my new HX and generally love it. Just trouble with my EP (Behringer FCV 100 - i know it is not on the recommended list). I want to use it as a Wah Pedal, and it works on one Preset but not on the other. I even used the "Copy/Paste Blocks" function in the "Action" Menu, but the 2nd patch just does not recognize the EP movement. How can this be, where can i look? I don´t find anything in the patches´ "Controller assign" or "Command Center" that is set differently, i am confused..... Any ideas?
  9. hey. Im thinking of buying the hx and have a few questions.- im new to the multi-effects world so im not gonna use such words as presets, blocks,setlists and all the other ones (maybe somebody could give me a simple answer on what they are). so I know the hx is basically a pedalboard but I can see myself using it in a somewhat different way. so here goes; I want to be able to select a song, then the different parts of it get assigned to the 6 knobs, so I can tap intro, then tap verse and so forth and onwards. Is something like this possible?
  10. Just picked up my replacement HX and after 40 mins of use it freezes and won’t bootup, exactly the same as the one it’s replaced. Before I get a refund is there an easy fix for this? Cheers!
