  1. Hi, I'm enjoying the LT very much. Thought I would share my MIDI control mapping for the Helix LT now that version 3.15 includes control of the encoders. Hope it's helpful! Nick Helix LT CC Mapping (For version 3.15).pdf
  2. I'm new to this so I should apologize before hand. I can't find any specific information regarding how to setup a vocal mic into the Helix LT, with a guitar. I was told it can be done, there's tons of forums and video related to this regarding impedance issues or for the Helix floor. If anyone could help, guide me to a resource of any kind it would be greatly appreciated. Can't find anything related to this in the manual as well. I admit Im a noob, what am I'm missing here. Please help, thanks!!!
  3. Hi there, does any one out there know the best EQ settings on a Yamaha QL5 with Helix LT for live performance. I've been playing on church for a while and the sound engineer is average on knowledge about sound reinforcement, the problem is that every time we play my sound is terrible, to bright and does not sound natural as it should be on a Helix (I use a power cab+ on my home and its a joy what you can hear on that cab) so I really like to sound the same. The lead guitar player is connected direct too with no amp, no amp simulator, just his pedal board and the last on the chain is BigSky and he's sound is good, I don't envy it, I just want to have a good sound and enjoy playing. So please 911, If any one knows please share
  4. Hi guys, I have recently buy a Helix LT, It sounds great so far and I love it, I have used Line 6 since more than 10 years ago, my first pedal board was the XT Live and then I got the HD500X, those were great as well, I had no problem with them but it seems like the helix is a little bit more complicated in terms of software, my LT has the 2.71 firmware, I download the editor and the latest driver I could find here, I installed everything with the Helix unplugged, I can see the helix as part of my external devices but when I try to use the editor I'm getting a message saying "no device connected", happened the same thing with the Line 6 updater, the screen is all black as if no device was connected. Am I missing something?, Do I need to do or install something else?. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi All, Got a weird one, or maybe im just being thick... Running my Helix with a JVM410H ONLY IN THE EFFECTS LOOP! So signal chain is; Guitar - Front of JVM - JVM send > Helix return - Helix Send > JVM Return I have the helix set up with the flow being; Input (Return 2) - Volume pedal - Chorus - Reverb - Delay - EQ - Noise Gate - Output (Send 1) When I play a note on my OD1 Channel on the JVM with the delay im getting a distorted delay? surely it shouldn't be distorted it should be a clean delay afterwards?

  6. Hello I whant to restore one of my presets from the latest backup, is that possible? Thanks! BR, Micke
  7. Hi all Since upgrading to Helix I've come across an issue with one of my guitars. I have four guitars, three of them have active circuits with mags and piezo, and one of them is a standard passive circuit. One of the active guitars has hot pickups, so when I plug in into Helix, the input indicator flashes red and the sound is distorted like it's breaking up, even on clean tones (or with no amp). It seems the Helix just can't handle the signal coming from the guitar. Things to note: This didn't happen when I owned the Firehawk FX, only since using Helix. It happens on all patches, factory or user It's mainly when the strings are strummed hard, but you can hear it affecting the tone quite dramatically. It does not affect the piezo, which I run through the FX Return input. It's only when the mags are selected going through the guitar input. I have tried the Guitar Pad option on and off, it doesn't seem to change anything. The only solution I have found is to roll back the volume pot a little, but this is not an ideal solution TBH. None of the other three guitars are affected. Are there any other ways to reduce the input signal through the Helix? Thanks!
  8. I got a Helix lt and after not connecting it to the pc after a while i noticed that the hx edit and the updater does not recognize it, i tried restarting the usb ports along with many other things. ( both programs are up to date) and nothing gives. In the device manager it gives me something like msg pipe, and i tried everything under the sun to troubleshoot it and nothing.
  9. Hello. I was wondering if any of you have experienced any issues with the headphone output of the Helix LT or Helix Floor? I have an Helix LT connected as an audio interface to my Windows 10 laptop. I only use headphones and like to jam along with YouTube and guitar pro and recently when I listen to a preset through my headphones connected to the output jack of my Helix LT, the panning/volume is all wonky and is not balanced with the right side noticeably louder than the left. The issue is across all my patches including factory and user). The issue seems to be volume related, if you crank up the amp or add a distortion block it seems to pan harder to the right and becomes very off putting. If you turn the volume knob below 12 o’clock the panning balances better, turn the volume knob up to 3 o’clock or to full then panning is almost hard right and I can hardly hear anything from the left as if you’ve have duff headphones. As a temporary work around I have to pan the output block at the end the chain by at least 30% to the left to balance the sound. I've tried different 1/4 inch adapters and different headphones, I have some in ear monitors and a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 pro 250 ohm and the issue persists. I have even sought a second opinion from my wife who agrees there is Definitely a panning/volume issue. There is no problems when listening to music and videos from YouTube etc. It only affects my guitar patches. Also, this seemingly started happening out of nowhere. I do not recall making any changes to global settings, but perhaps that is where the problem is? I am updated to firmware version 2.92 and have been since it was released. Out of desperation I have completed a factory reset and even rolled back the firmware to 2.8 and reinstalled 2.92 with no joy and I am now worried it may be a hardware issue. Everything has been working fine until now. If anybody could help me figure this out, I would really appreciate it! Thank you.
  10. I’ve been gigging with Helix LT for several years just fine (XLR left output direct into mixer). At band practice last night volume decreased and then came back, and it started clicking/popping. Then it stopped working. No sound. Then bottom row of buttons made some noise, and top row worked ok, then stopped again. Same when changing banks. Tried power off – nope, change guitar cable – nope. Then it began working like normal, but had a few seconds randomly dropping out. Seems to be working fine now, but I am skeptical. Any ideas what the problem is? Thanks, Joel
  11. I have helix lt so it has only one volume knob. My issue was that all amps sounded very weak and i was unsatisfied with any of them. Suddenly i figured out that if i change headphones monitor setting from multi to 1/4 the sound became not only much louder but also fuller. Is this intended behavior? It was not very intuitive to figure out since i always had my volume knob turned up half way and i though that something is wrong either with my gear or the unit. But after changing this setting volume doubled. Thanks
  12. Hello there I recently purchased the Helix LT and I have been enjoying it both for playing at home, and for party gigs. I realised that I can practise in my room by connecting it through the USB, and play through my jbl LSR305 monitors, which really sounds great, and also gives convenient parameter control through the HX edit software. A recurring error is however stifling my enthusiasm. When I've been playing for say 5-10 minutes, the Helix freezes and becomes unresponsive. In the HX edit software it disconnects from the device, and refuses to recognise that the helix is still connected. The sound goes through unaltered, but I can now no longer change parameters, and to access this again I have to reboot the pedal (discarding possible changes). This is really problematic, as it essentially removes the functionality that I want from the pedal, and googling it has yielded no results. Does anyone have similar experiences? My specs are: Helix LT is running v2.54.0 firmware. 13'' MacBook pro running high sierra 10.13.5 HX edit v. 2.52 playing through Logic Pro X v. 10.2.0 Best, Jonas
  13. Hello, For a live use, in order to be able to benefit at the same time from its amp in return, and at the same time of a direct connection towards the sound system. Is it possible to use the "4 cables" method with a direct connection to the sound system? The 4 cables method allows to insert some effects in the loop of the amp (without the amp and cabinet simulations) The direct connection allowing to have the effects and the amp and cabinet simulations. Thank you for your feedback, I did not find any information on this "combined" connection. If it is possible, would it be possible to have a picture of the 2 channels? Thank you in advance for your help
  14. Wireless MIDI Controllers for IOS - AUGUST 2021 UPDATES! https://line6.com/support/forum/96-promote-your-patches/ Based on the new MIDI implementation from Firmware 3.10 Includes SAVE button (All models) Includes MODE button (Helix Floor, Helix LT, Helix Rack, HX Effects) Includes VIEW button (Helix LT, HX Stomp) Helix Floor/Rack (main view) Helix LT (main view) NEW layout! included with the HELIX Floor/Rack layout HX Stomp (main view) HX Effects (main view)
  15. 2021 Updated! V1.2 is Now online! This is a Premium MIDI Layout made for Line 6 Helix devices: Helix Floor, Helix LT or Helix Rack. Requires MIDI Designer Pro 2 (IOS app, sold separately) Full tactile control over your Helix using MIDI over Bluetooth or MIDI-USB connections. Hardware and Software requirements: Line 6 Helix, Helix LT or Helix Rack MIDI Designer Pro 2 (IOS App, sold separately) Apple iPad MIDI Interface (wireless or wired) Changes Log: 1 August 2021 - Updated to 1.2 Save and Mode buttons added (requires firmware 3.10 or later) New Helix LT layout included (replaces FS3 slider with a View button) 16 January 2021 - Updated to 1.1 Improved design BlueBoard screen added Extended visual Input: Now this Layout can receive CC69 (Snapshots), values [0,1,2] if you have configured your device to send such data in Command Center. The same is applied to CC1 and CC2 (EXP pedals). These changes must be saved per preset basis in your device. Recommended MIDI Interfaces: Wireless: Yamaha MD-BT01 or CME WIDI Master Wired (using Helix USB): Apple Lightning to USB3 Camera Adapter Wired (MIDI to USB): Roland UM-ONE MKII + Apple Lightning to USB3 Camera Adapter Included support (optional): Embedded suport for the IK Multimedia Blueboard Bluetooth LE Modes: Mode B (Half/Full speed, Undo/Redo, Play/Stop, Rec/Overdub) Mode C (Snapshots 1-4) Includes a Small MIDI implementation to replicate the BlueBoard behaviour with any other configurable MIDI device (Airturn, Airstep, Pirate MIDI Bridge6/4, Morningstar, etc) A bit of tech stuff: The operation of this MIDI Layout is based on the current MIDI implementation available on Line 6 Helix devices. This means that the limits of what or how can be controlled are determined by the manufacturer (to a large extent). The practical translation of this fact is that: There are some functions in the Helix that are not controllable, simply because there is no CC assigned to whatever. There are some things in the Helix that receive MIDI but they do not send it. A clear example are the footswitches (FS). For this reason, it is not possible to show a synchronized status (on/off) on the controller's screen. For this type of controls, it will only be possible to send a status change message, so the buttons will be of a momentary type. Helix does not send the names of presets or setlists via MIDI -something that would normally use SYSEX messages or the Line 6's own protocol. Description: 1- Main Screen. From this screen you can control the main functions of your Helix. Some elements receives the MIDI information that your Helix sends and display it on the screen, such as bank and program changes. Others are used to send commands to activate and deactivate elements such as footswitches. A few elements are bi-directional, such as looper controls (broken feature in the 3.0/3.01 Firmware. Waiting for the upcoming 3.1 Helix firmware update). As you already know, the Helix does not send us the setlists names. However, you will be able to rename your Setlists on the controller easily from this screen, simply by pressing the "Setlist" button to write names coincident with those of your Helix. 2-Setlist Screen The main function of this screen is to navigate comfortably between the eight banks of your Helix, but we can also select a preset in each of the 8 banks, and toggle between them at the touch of a button. There are also controls that receive information from your Helix, like these three large screens showing the current MIDI PC, Bank, and Preset (ABCD). The eight Snapshots and the most relevant looper controls are also present here. 3- Preset Screen On this screen, the idea is to have quick and immediate access to all the Presets (and Setlists) of your Helix. Snapshot selection controls are also present, as well as the looper, tap tempo and tuner buttons. 4- BlueBoard Screen This new screen provides embedded support for the iRig BlueBoard. Two units can be used simultaneosly. A small MIDI implementation is also included, to use with any other configurable MIDI controller (Airturn, Airstep, Pirate MIDI Bridge, Morningstar...)

  16. I'm deciding between the Helix and the Helix LT, and now I have this question. These are my current needs: the XLR and 1/4" to be always at full volume – ie. not being adjusted by the volume knob; the headphones to be adjusted by the volume knob. Question: Is it possible to be done on the Helix LT? Page 65 of the manual says: ... but there is no mention if the headphone volume will still be controlled by the volume knob.
  17. How sturdy is the Helix LT expression pedal? I'm afraid that this seems kind of "soft"... can you really step on and do a wah solo or change modulations efectcs with confidence? Of course, all whithin normal-careful use, not talking about being rude with the unit. Thank you.
  18. Hi, It may be a pretty dumb question, but I really need to have the correct information in order to have my setup right. I'm using a Helix LT to record guitars, and I usually record two separate channels, one wet and one DI through USB. So far, so good. However, I also have an interface (a UA Apollo Solo) and I notice that if I connect the guitar straight into it and use Helix Native, with exactly the same patch, exactly the same set levels, I get a much more consistent-sounding signal. I'm wondering that that might have to do with the fact that I'm monitoring my Helix LT through headphones (can't use monitors, since the only time I have is while the kids are sleeping). The LT does not have the dedicated headphone knob, so I need to put my volume knob down so as to not blow my ears. That might be affecting the "wholeness" of the signal fed into the USB. Does that make sense? More directly: if I set my Volume Knob to control only the headphones on "global preferences", would that automatically default every other output to max volume level? That would solve my doubt, basically. Or do I need to set the volume of, say, "multi out" with the volume knob first, and THEN change it in the global preferences to only headphones? Either way, my need is to be able to lower the headphone monitoring volume while keeping the "official" outputs at maximum. Is it possible? Thanks a lot!
  19. I know the Helix LT doesn't have an Aux In to plug in a media player like the regular Helix or my old Pod HD500X. I love using my Pod as a practice unit, jamming over tracks I know when I plug my cell phone into it. Is there any other creative way to make audio go through a Helix LT, or do I have to spend another $500 for the regular Helix just to get that functionality?
  20. Hello everyone I am the owner of a Helix LT that I use in 4CM mode with my amp head. I use the single EXT output to change the channel of my head. When I change the channel via the helix, the light changes between EXP 1 and EXP2, so I had to assign two volume pedals at the beginning of the signal (one for each channel of the head). But when I change snapshot (and head channel), pedal 2 goes to 0%. I put a video that shows the problem. It seems that this is only present on the LT since the original Helix has a dedicated output for the channel change. Has anyone encountered this problem before? Thanks a lot to all. IMG_3112.mp4
  21. I would absolutely love to be able to hit one button to go through my entire song in an order. I want to go through my snapshots in an order I choose. Setting them all to one button and going through an order of snapshots. Is there a way to do this on the HX LT?
  22. I've tried updating from 2.30 to 3.11.0 three times, I keep getting this message: "Boot Failure, Entered Update Mode!" This doesn't mean anything to me; I'm new to the Helix LT. I thought I had updated the software; when I turn the Helix LT on it shows the 3.11.0 version, but then I get the above message again. What do I do next? Thanks.
  23. If your Helix/LT is booting up in Demo Mode (shown on display screen during power up), please refer to the following procedures to deactivate and resume normal mode: Helix Floor Hold down FS 3+7 during power up Helix LT Hold down FS 3 (top row 'B') + FS 7 (Bank/Preset Down) during power up
  24. I just received my helix LT yesterday, downloaded the newest HX editor and tried to update the unit as recommended. Got stuck with the error and reboot situation I’ve read about, so I tried different USB ports and cables, tried the reboot while holding fs 6+12; nothing worked. Now my helix has stopped starting up altogether. It no longer shows the booting screen, all I see is flickering pictograms (see included video), and it doesn’t respond to any reset boot I try. Help? I’m on the brink of returning it as a faulty device. FullSizeRender.mov
  25. Hello! new user here! Im from argentina. Straight to the point guys, I just need to move all my effects/settings from my old pedalboard "HX Effects" to the new "Helix LT" that i just bought, i can't find the way to do this... is there any? Please help!
