  1. Hello, I have a strange issue with my Line6 Helix device. Even when I turn down my "Phones" output all the way down to zero, I still hear sound coming from my right headphone. Is this a known bug? Is there a way to fix it?
  2. Hey L6 Forums, New HX Effects user here. Really liking it so far! I do have a question about Snapshots, though: On my main preset, I have 4 Snapshots set up - Clean Electric, Acoustic Sim, Overdrive, and Fuzz. I have the Clean Electric Snapshot set up as the base tone of the preset, and therefore it's not assigned to a footswitch. I'm trying to use the other 3 snapshots to swap in and out different sounds with one touch. Is there a way to set the Acoustic Sim, Overdrive and Fuzz snapshots to bypass automatically when I press the footswitch for one of the other Snpshots? I'm looking to avoid hitting the snapshot footswitch a second time, only to have it bypass the snapshot I wanted to change back to. I still want the release function on the switches for Acoustic, Overdrive and Fuzz to take me back to my Clean Electric snapshot, though. Is this possible?
  3. Hace 3 dias compre un helix floor y tengo problemas con el pedal de volumen, el recorrido del volumen marca de 0 a 100% pero en pedal físico recorre solo el 90%, cuando el pedal me marca 0% de volumen en el pedal físico aun puedo bajar un 10% que el helix no me reconoce, saben como puedo calibrarlo? q puedo hacer?? video-1607103624.mp4
  4. Hi, I’ve recently moved to the green side a.k.a. Kemper and have no use for my helix native. if you’re interested in buying, message me!
  5. So I’m trying to update my helix and I downloaded the firmware on hx edit but for some reason , my helix isn’t updating. I’m stuck on “firmware downloaded successfully”. The display screen isn’t changing to the update stage. Does anyone know how to fix this issue ?
  6. In today's video I go over my Clean and Bright bass tone that I pretty much start with when I'm writing or recording any music other than my metal productions. After a play through of a track I put together, I go over all of the settings inside of Helix. I am using the Ampeg SVT-4 PRO amp block. I am also using Ownhammer Impulses in this one from their Ampeg pack. I hope this is helpful and you can use it as a jumping off point for your own productions. Be safe guys and I hope you're all doing well. Love Nick
  7. Helix: POD Go: HX Stomp: The Satch tones are done for all three platforms and live in Marketplace at the links above! I started playing guitar in 1989 just a few months before Flying in a Blue Dream was released. I was reading all the guitar magazines at that time and Satch was on the cover of every single one! Surfing with the Alien was the first tab book I bought at the local music store. I can't really play anything like Satch but he was such an inspiration to me that I certainly spent many hours trying! This history is why it was such a special set of tones for me to work on.
  8. If loading a third-party IR (impulse response) into HX Edit or POD Go Edit results in an out of memory condition, it is likely the source file is too large or contains too many samples. Open a DAW (digital audio workstation) e.g. Cubase, Logic, Reaper, Ableton, etc., or other capable audio recording/editing software, such as Audacity, and import the IR file into a new session/project. Trim the IR so that it is no more than 2,048 samples in length. Most DAWs have a ruler that you can set to beats, minutes/seconds, or samples. Set it to 'samples' in order to make the most accurate time selection. After the file has been trimmed, you're ready to export/bounce the new IR file. Use the item render/export in your DAW and follow these guidelines to ensure compatibility: 24-bit / 48k Mono (1 channel) Must be WAV file format
  9. Hello everyone, Just tried to update my Helix LT from 2.92 to 3.0 with HX edit 3.0 without success, the update stopped and HX Edit asked to turn off and on the Helix. I tried to put it in test mode (turn on the helix with switch 3 and 4), safe mode, factory reset... nothing works (see image link). I am running a 2020 MacBook Pro 13", with Core i7/16Go DDR4. Any suggestions ? I am getting a bit preoccupied as I had to reset it once but this time even the factory reset doesn't work. Thank you very much for your help
  10. Hey guys! I bought a new iMac and I need to download the Helix Native again from my Line 6 account. Do you guys could tell me how to do that? Thank you! ;)
  11. Can you use Helix Native Plug-in in Pro tools with the helix floor? While recording I want to be able to use the presets on my helix floor and upload them onto my band members helix native. This would allow me to use the helix floor as the controller for the tone that is being recorded thus allowing me to change the tone after if needed while listening back, this would then remove the re—amping process and need for wet-dry recording. They could communicate similar to helix Edit and helix floor, and allow for real time adjustments and tone thanks
  12. WARNING NEW GUY I have been playing 15 years...and can dial in a tube amp easily...but modelers are a whole new world to goes nothing! So i have had my helix lt for a few months now and have been using it live almost every weekend. Had a sound i really liked dialed in but wasn't happy just using a monitor and my bands mixer board is one is always one short on running FOH was time for a power amp and 2x12 cab But now i cant seem to find a good setting...i took the IR off the preset. Ive really taken a liking to the Placater so id like to still use that for the 80s cover band. Any suggestions on helix settings using the 2x12 and poweramp route?
  13. Hi I have a helix LT running latest software 2.92 and connected via a Klotz AES cable to the line 6 link on my powercab 112 plus - the sound is fine but I cannot change the the speaker models on the power cab in HX edit. The name changes but nothing changes in the sound. If I walk over to the pwoercab and change it manually then there is a clear change in the sounds between presets. I really want to be able to change powercab speakers through my helix presets but am struggling - any ideas out there? Many thanks for any advice
  14. Hi friends, i'm a happily new owner of a HX Stomp since a pair of weeks. A couple of days ago I shared a "hm-2 alike tone" on the Customtone, because I couldn't setup properly my BOSS HM-2 to sound with my HX. Tried with my Behringer HM300, but same problem... all sounds like crap. Not a nice crap like Entombed sound, no... just crap. Tried on the input, tried on the loop, tried a few amps, owhnhammer ir's, but nothing good. What am I doing wrong? Is there any way to make this pedals understand each other? xD Please, help! :D
  15. Hello I need some serious help with my setup, i'm at a loss. This seems like an extremely simple and very normal setup. what i want to have happen: PC machine be ready to go with audio output and recording always setup for guitar/bass on Helix Be able to play audio from protools and PC at the same time through the same speakers (backing track + recorded audio as needed/experimenting) Guitar play through powercab 112 only - but also record in protools at the same time Sounds like something completely normal and acceptable, but doesn't work. current setup PC machine hooked up to helix via usb helix connected into powercab 112 via aes cable (digital output for helix path 1) external speakers connected to headphone out of helix so i can have isolated audio control of volume this seems like a simple request, but i'm running into a serious wall with this. Protools requires audio be directed through the Helix, so audio MUST come through the Helix for the PC (both the operating system audio + recorded audio in protools) If i do not set the output on path 1 to Multi or USB 1/2 - it will not record the instrument in protools. However, if i set the guitar to USB 1/2 or Multi - then it will play audio through the external speakers. Multi also doubles down and plays through the powercab 112 with this setup. If i set it to USB 1/2 - then it will not play through the powercab 112+ - it is not an option. These 2 playbacks must be isolated. I need the audio to only play for the instrument out of Digital but record in protools, while still enabling me to use my powercab 112. I posted a thread a while ago about using powercab 112 to record, but thats not what will work for me in this situation. Note: I have tried ASIO4All and did not have any luck getting this setup either. Powercab112 does not show up as a recording device in protools, even though it is showing in asio4all. Does anybody have any ideas ?
  16. Hi Guys, Haven't been able to update to 2.50 yet, but I'm very curious to know what is the general opinion on the quality of the legacy effects. I don't have experience with the gear they are deduced from. I've read they are supposed to sound a little bit better from the Helix, but what can I expect? Can't wait to update, but in the meantime thanks for your response!
  17. Hello Line 6 Community I would like to know if it is possible to record my expression pedal movements from my helix into my Daw (Ableton). When I record my dry signal I need to simultaneously record my expression pedal movements into my daw as Midi cc Messages, to later be sent back into my helix to automate the movement of the expression pedal during playback. I know that it is possible to use the draw tool in Ableton to manually enter the position of the expression pedal, but this is extremely tedious since I constantly use the expression pedal throughout all my songs. and hard to manually enter since I use different speeds! I also want to be able to send this recorded midi information do my Digitech Bass Whammy Pedal which can receive midi messages. ( please line 6, add a DIGITECH BASS WHAMMY effect) If the Helix can't do this, do you know of a product that can??? Thank you.
  18. Anyone notice that bypassed effects still add a db boost? My lead patch is a copy of my rhythm patch, just with added delay and eq block for a boost to mids and slight db boost. I noticed that when I bypassed (turned off) the eq and delay, the patch was still noticeably louder. So I removed the eq and delay blocks, then the patch was the same volume as the rhythm patch. When I added the blocks back, even though they were disabled there was a slight db boost. Anyone know why this is?
  19. Here ya go - even if you're only vaguely interested in the development of the Helix - Digital Igloo give us some insight on our, now 5 year old, toy!
  20. I'm on my helix, trying to find a way to turn on a harmony only while pressing the footswitch so that i don't have to dubble click it. Is this possible? I'm actually thinking alot of effekts would be fun to use just quickly and the timing would be alot easier if the effekt only would be on while pressing the footswitch.
  21. Hi, I'm a new Helix user and was wondering if the "Multi" Out option could be changed from the 4 (XLR, 1/4, Digital, USB) to just 2. For instance, to send audio only to XLR and Digital, or XLR and 1/4 (and leave the other outputs free for other routing). Could there be a way to mirror one output to another? If not possible, could there be a chance for a firmware update that includes more flexible routing options? Also, is there a possibility to monitor the audio coming from the "Digital" source in the headphones output? This option is not available in the HP settings. Thanks. Leo
  22. Hi there! I got myself a Powercab 212 recently and I'm trying to build some patches from scratch. My setup is either ES335 or LP, both equipped with PAF ––> Helix ––L6-L––> PC212. Helix Volume is at 11, all output levels are set to 0dB and Line-Level where possible. Powercab speakers are also set to 0dB. When I do some heavy strumming with no blocks active, it is impossible to get the PC input yellow. When I raise the Helix output block to +20dB I can clip the PC to yellow. When I add the max. +6dB raise to the PC-input, I can clip it to red with very hard strumming only. My guitars have a very low output (335 is a tad below 7K), but nonetheless this seems not right to me. How is it with your Helix-PC-combos? Any advice how I should set my gains here? Dev
  23. Hi. I have set up my helix with Snap/ stomp set up. I was trying to get different sounds and saving them when my snapshots disappeared. If I go to global settings and turn the setting button for Snap/ stomp to change it, nothing happens. The snapshots are still showing in the HX edit but not showing on the unit. Can anyone help?
  24. Hi! New Helix user here and like many I encountered the BSOD while updating my Helix for the first time which freaked me out. I saw there is a driver fix for it already but even after click on it, waiting and even reloading the page, the download does not begin. Does anyone else have this problem too? And would someone be kind enough to pass me the driver file for it as well? Thanks!

    I’ve been a longtime line 6 user... from the dl4 when it first released, the m9, echo park, m13, pod hd, and now the helix lt i just wanted to say thank you... to everyone who built this unit... how crazy is it that we can have access to so many different amps and effects, constant FREE updates, and it sound so amazing?! It’s a joy whenever I power it on and strum a chord... I didn’t know where to email this, and didn’t want to open a support ticket just to say thanks... no one has to reply to this or anything like that... but it’s especially been great to have my helix during quarantine, and through this crazy year. It’s an amazing product and you guys should be proud.
