  2. Hello, my Helix will not power on, I just get a flashing screen (for a second) and then goes into a black screen. Helix control just have a solid color light not text. My unit has always been connected to a Furman power conditioner and I did not get any issues with an update. Unit has always been updated using Windows 10 and it has the latest 3.11 firmware. Has anyone experienced something like this. Where you able to find a solution? Thank you for your help.
  3. Hi all, new to Helix, recently got myself a Helix Rack. Great separate volume control for headphones level, but even with that at max, I don't get a lot of volume out of my headphones. I wear a pair of Beyerdynamix DT990 Pro of 250 Ohms. I had my Rack hooked up to the laptop via USB as I had been installing the recent update and sound from YouTube came through at much higher levels. Have been looking at global settings, but can't find anywhere where i can adjust heaphones out level. Am I missing something? Many thanks Marc
  4. Hi! My Helix Floor just came in, after starting and noodling with it for a bit I decided to update the firmware (it comes with 1.06.5 firmware) to 3.11, but after it's been updated, it's stuck in the loading screen saying "WIll restore select Factory Settings..." and it has been doing this for almost 2 hours, anyone know how to fix this? Thank you!
  5. Hello everyone. I have a Variax JTV 69 and in connection with my Helix I have the problem that after a while with different presets my alternative tunings no longer behave correctly. For example: I have an acoustic guitar with an E major tuning, which suddenly takes effect on all of my presets after a while. I also programmed some sounds a semitone higher, these also no longer work after a while. If I unplug the Variax cable and plug it in again, it works fine for a while.. I have a Helix Floor and a Helix Rack, the same problem with both. My colleague has a Shuriken, which does not have the problem with the same presets. Does anyone have an idea? Many Thanks Markus
  6. Hello ! I wonder if the fbv 3 work (in USB or MIDI) with the helix cause the controller for the helix do not have a pedal expression... Thanks in advance !

    Circular delays

    I have been wondering is there a way to do circular delays with the helix rack? I have most things covered and sometimes i only use the helix as a interface to my computer and then other times its my whole sound. I have looked with no luck but was just curious. Thanks for any help!
  8. So, HX Edit 2.92 will not open and all the patches on my Helix Rack mount disappeared. The solution I found to this, is to uninstall HX Edit 2.92 and reinstall it. While booting up Helix make sure there are no SD cards/USB Drives/Other Interfaces/Unnecessary external devices plugged into your computer, as for whatever reason Helix will try to pull information from it like it's Drive: C on your computer and will not load correctly on the Unit or HX Edit 2.92. This is very bizarre and I've read the forums, this is the only fix I found and am not sure what else can be done. I heard the programmers are aware of this issue I'm not sure if it's a Windows 10 problem, an internal battery was almost dead and went buggy from not being turn on in over 2 weeks or if it is a software issue but I'm just curious if anyone knows anything about the new patch update and when it will possibly be released? Btw, I'm runding newest version of Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron 1500 with the Helix Rack Mount and HX Edit 2.92
  9. Hi. I'm having trouble with my Helix Control. When i booted my rack unit up yesterday, the control also booted up in LCD Test mode. It switches between this and Update mode but never reverts back to presets. The rack is recognising this as having not been updated. I clicked update but it does nothing and just keep repeating, asking to update. I can't seem to get it out of the test mode so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Picture for reference
  10. After far too much procrastination, I've finally gone back and done a tone overview video on my Metallica - Dream No More tone with the Helix. Thanks to all my patient pals for politely asking me to get this done. This is for you guys. Hope you all are well in Helix land
  11. Hello! So I'm going for my dream rig and I need your advice/ comments on this, since it's the first time I'll be going for a rack system. Rig: Mesa Boogie Mark V:25 Helix Rack Helix Control pedalboard Tuner pedal next to the pedalboard 2x ODs connected to the Helix (rack) 2x expression pedals (wah and volume) QA: Would I be able to connect 2 external pedals to the Helix and use them in Helix patches? Do I need Mission external pedals for wah and volume or can I use others like a Dimebag wah? How do you guys power the Helix Control pedalboard, do you use a power supply like a Truetone CS7? Can the Helix control the Mark V:25 channels? Can I use that feature when setting up Helix presets? Would I need extra gizmos? If someone has a similar rack system please do share, I would be willing to pay for help designing the whole thing, including necessary cables, etc... Thank you!
  12. Okay, so I am fairly new to using my Helix Rack, I got it back in January. I updated my Helix Rack to 2.90 the other day and I have been having constant problems that do not seem to be getting resolved... if anything they are getting worse. I use my Helix as part of my guitar rig, using the 4CM to hook up the Helix to my amp, and then the helix is MIDI controlling the amp as well. I have an external noise gate that my guitar goes into first before the Helix if that helps too. Before updating to 2.90, everything worked perfectly, I never had a hiccup. Ever since I updated to 2.90, my Helix has been freezing on me and is not recognizing an input, which then disables the built-in tuner. I have tried unplugging everything and plugging it back in, I did a hard-boot and mass reset, but nothing is working. All I have been doing is shutting the Helix on and off about 10 times before it starts to actually work and I am SICK of it. Does anyone have any idea on what I should do???
  13. I've bought the line 6 helix LT second hand. I think its not the original power cable, instead they gave me a 10A 250V power cable, will it be healthy for the helix? or should I search for another power cable that's just 240V?? Because the helix LT Power Requierements are from 100-240V
  14. Mods remove if not allowed (didn't see a classifieds section). Looking to trade a brand new Helix Floor unit for a Rack/Control. Had it less than a month, never put on the floor, the thing is brand spankin new (box and everything it comes with included). Will come with Brand new Helix backpack Just feel more comfortable with a rack unit for live gigs, seeing if there are any people out there open to a trade... Thanks
  15. Hello to all Could anyone explain to me the use of pitch / synth in the effects chain? In particular, why are 3 Note Generator and 4 Osc generator not active? Thank you Alex
  16. Hi gang, It seems the Helix Rack's looper can't stop playback and start a new recording whilst in playback mode unless it receives a stop-playback MIDI CC message first. It also seems the stop-playback message needs to be received 20-21ms before the start-recording message, otherwise the latter is sometimes/often not acknowledged. Is there any way to have the start-recording function override and force playback to stop? Or alternatively is there an adjustable setting that'll make the Helix process the pair of stop/start of messages quicker? I'm looking for immediacy with this so I can emulate glitching effects. Sending the two messages within 15-20ms is useable yet unreliable, and anything under 15ms registers only the stop-playback message, leaving the start-recording message overlooked. Anything above 21ms is consistently reliable, but the latency is off-putting. What are my options? Cheers! Dawes
  17. Hello, sorry if this is a duplicate, I'm not a regular forums user... I've received my Helix Rack today and was updating it to the current firmware and setting it up and was wondering if it would not be possible to use on of the backpanel jacks as a regular instrument in. The background is that it sits below my wireless which of course outputs on the back an instrument level signal and I would like to avoid laying a cable out to the frontpanel instrument in. I was checking all the global in/out options but could not find anything like this. As far as I understand it, the aux in expects a line level input. On a sidenote: Does anybody know what happens if you feed an instrument level signal through a lne level input port? I would guess it would sound a little "washed out"? Thanks in advance and best regards

    MIDI AND LOOPER

    Hello. I would like to know how to control the looper of the helix rack with fcb1010. I state, I use the FCB1010 as a preset and stomp box recall. the problem is that, if I set the pedals to use the looper, set by helix between the cc60 and cc67, I can no longer use the pedals for the stompboxes, because they have other dedicated mids. how can I exclude everything (preset and stomp) of the helix when I use the looper, and get everything back (preset and stomp) when I remove the looper ?? thanks
  19. I have a Helix Floor unit in excellent condition that I'd like to trade for the rack mount with the controller. Also, I will include the Gator G-TOUR PEDALBOARD-LGW ATA Wood Tour Case. I am a touring musician out of Nashville and I want to build a rack for touring to include my IEMs, Wireless guitar unit, and rack effects. So, moving to the rack model will just make life easier. (I hope LOL!) If you're interested feel free to email me at blackburnguitar@gmail.com and we can work out the details! Thank you!

    Helix floor vs rack

    Ehy guys I have a question. I’m going to buy a new helix but I don’t know which one. Is there any software or hardware difference between the rack version (with the controller and a expression pedal) and the floor version? Thank you all
  21. I've owned a Helix rack for about six months, finally decided to pick up a Control. I opened the box, skimmed the manual (I was expecting to be able to just plug it in, but wanted to make sure), plugged in and powered on. All the scribble strips lit up solid white, and "Control needs to be updated" appeared on the Rack's screen. I pushed the 'green OK button' (knob six), and after a few seconds got a "Communication failed" message, which would endlessly loop if I kept hitting OK. I figured out how to power the Control on, into update mode (or at least, that's what the display said), but it didn't make any difference. My Helix was on 2.80, so I downgraded to 2.71 and tried again - no luck. I discovered that the Control's firmware is 1.06.05, so I thought that maybe being so old it would have to hit a 'waypoint' release - so I downgraded the Rack to 2.00. Still no change in behavior. I opened a ticket, but I suspect they're pretty overwhelmed with 2.80 stuff right now. I'm guessing there's no other way to force a Control update, than through the Rack?
  22. Hi guys. Recently I sold my Helix Floor to buy a (brand new) Rack+Controller+Power Conditioner and everything arrived today. Very happy so far, love the new setup, much easier on my back lol! The power conditioner also removed all the noise I had coming from my power socket, awesome toy. Anyway, the joystick on the Rack front panel, it's very fluid for top/left/bottom clicks, but stiff on the right. You can barely feel and ear the click. I had exactly this same behavior on the Helix Floor, even on the second Joystick they installed for a repair. At this point I guess it's something common? After that, I see the joystick it's very off center, but again...looking around on google images, I see the same thing on many units. At this point I'm just trying to understand if the two factors are correlated, stiffness and off center (bad installation on the front panel?), or if it's just a common thing and I've to live with it. Any Rack user here that could confirm or give me some advice? Do I have to return it? Meh? :) Anyway, couple of pics so you have an idea of what I'm talking about. Thanks for any input. o/
  23. Short Description: I can get a Direct out to my DAW and record that with no problems through the SPDIF line. But when I try to send the recorded signal back into my Helix through SPDIF, I get a horrible feedback. (3.6khz) This is using a Presonus Studio 18/24 audio interface and Presonus Studio One Pro V. 4.5 as my DAW. Using the Helix as my audio interface and the USB ports and S1 as the DAW works fine. Hardware and connections Helix Rack, Presonus Studio 18/24 1/4 inch outs of Helix into presonus inputs (helix out set to 1/4 inch, not multi) S/PDIF out of Helix to S/PDIF in on presonus S/PDIF out on Presonus to S/PDIF in on Helix Wordclock out on Presonus connected to Wordclock in on Helix. (clock set to internal on presonus, clock set to wordclock in in the global settings on Helix) Software DAW and Helix edit settings On the DI track, output is set to S/PDIF, input is set to none. (output gain can be adjusted with fader, initially have it set all the way down) On the track where I intend to record the re-amped signal I have the inputs set to the Helix audio outs with gain set down. Helix edit has lane 2 input set to none output set to unused output port. Lane 1 has input set to guitar, output set to 1/4 in outs. As soon as I switch the lane one input to digital (S/PDIF signal) it goes into uncontrolled screeching. No other setting seems to matter. Does anyone have experience with this and can let me know what I'm missing or what mistake I'm making?
  24. Is anyone aware of and can point me to a tutorial on configuring my Helix Rack to be controlled with my DAW? I know the information is available in the manual(s) if you know what you're doing and how to use it, but I don't. I'm using Presonus Studio one pro for my DAW (win7), a Presonus sutdio 18/24 for my interface. I've also downloaded and installed HX edit. Hooking up cables, establishing midi channels is easy enough, but getting things to talk to each other, not so much. I'm a reasonably tech savy kind of guy and can probably figure it out eventually but finding a tutorial and some tips and tricks to speed that along would be nice. In hindsight, I probably should've gone with the helix native plugin, and will probably go ahead and get it, but, I've got the rack so here we are. :)
  25. Twice this week my Helix Rack and Control froze and wouldn't change presets. Once during a rehearsal, and last night during a performance. Only thing that fixed it was powering off and then on. Not sure if it was same preset that froze or not. But I do know that the rack and control both read different presets. Signal was still coming through so I was able to finish song, but why would it be freezing like that? I'm on latest firmware. I have 2 Helix Mission expression pedals plugged in to control. Any Ideas? I'm using all tones I've created and maybe 1 or 2 custom patches from other people, with IR's. I've read about the "rebuild all presets" feature but not sure what that does or if it would fix this particular bug. Thanks
