  1. Hello all! just a quick one, my guitarist uses a pedal baby with a cab, should he use a pre-amp block without the BIAS settings, or a full amp block? I think the Pedal baby is a class-AB solid state? I might be answering my own question, but I reckon the pedal baby wants a mic level signal... the full amps are line? And the BIAS settings are emulating how much an amp pushes back on the signal... so as the PDBB is an amplifier... it already has its own behavioural characteristics? Looking for what’s correct, not a “if it sounds great it is great” #winky emoji Thanks everyone.
  2. I’ve been thinking about getting a Shuriken and Helix LT, but given it’s been a few years since they were released I was curious if there is any product refresh coming that I should wait for. I know there are frequent software updates, but curious if any hardware updates are inbound. thanks!
  3. I have noticed that when using Helix as audio interface with Reaper that if I shut off the Helix while Reaper is still running, that the computer goes to a blue screen, and says something about a fatal error and starts gathering info to send to Microsoft. Then the computer does a complete restart. I haven't tried shutting down Reaper first but it's still odd behavior. Anyone else experience this? It's a Windows 10 computer. The only other thing that could be mixed up in this is the fact that I have two sets of speakers. One set is XLR from the Helix and the other set is computer speakers from the RCA jack on back of PC. So there are Realtek drivers for the computer speakers and Helix drivers for the Focal monitors. One other thing here that might help some users with a different issue. I noticed loud crack or pop sounds from my new Focal monitors that almost scared me out of my chair the first few times. I thought I might damage the monitors. Turns out that Realtek standard driver appears to have a power down function to save power if the speaker is not used for a period of time. This also happened on my computer monitors but less noticeable. If you don't use any audio for about 3-5 minutes power is cut and then re-ingaged when you start a video or start playiing.....So through Dell I found that there is a high definition driver from Realtek that doesn't have this problem plus he installed Max Audio Pro to manage the audio connections which may or may not help. I have also disabled power saving on USB ports as an after thought because sometimes when I walk away from the computer for longer periods and come back to Reaper and Helix, the connection is broken and HX EDit doesn't work nor does Reaper if I remember correctly. I also think that Microsoft updates can screw up the driver configuration I have now...so watch for that....if needed.
  4. Today I bought my helix and when I opened it up the presets were listed 000, 001, 002 etc. however, after updating the soft wear, the presets are now listed 01A, 01B, 01C etc. I was wondering how I can change it back to the original listing? I find it odd why I have to group my presets in groups of four. Thanks.
  5. Hi All, I made 2 backups prior to updating the flash firmware using HXEdit 3.11. After flashing my helix, I hled down 8-9 and asked it to do a resotre to defualts as per the instuctions. no issue. I then tried to load in my backup and it stops rebuilding on preset 267. (I waited 30 mins to see if it would go past) If I turn the unit off and then on again, it skips this and continues on until the next preset it doesn't like (523), and stops there. If i do the same thing, it skips over it and stops at (524) and so on and so forth. I made 3 backups of my settings. 1 before upgrade on 3.10, 1 after going to hxedit 3.11 and one during the update of the helix process using HXEdit 3.11 None of my backups are rebuilding. Any ideas??? My last upgrade to 3.10 restored no issue for that firmware, this one however, 3.11, refuses to rebuild.
  6. Hi, i'm trying to control the channel switching on my Mark V via the Helix Effects instant blocks. I've figured out the function in general and the switching itself is working properly ( tip+ring for the wanted channel). The only problem i'm having is excessive humming (mind i already have two gates in my signal chain). I have seen a similar problem in this forum before, but the thread is some years old now. Does anyone know if there is a proper solution or are there just workarounds with external components? kind regards and thank you in advance olli
  7. Okay, let me first say, I have plenty of common sense and I could easily infer a conclusion that has high probability of being accurate. Actually, I already do have an assumption that I'm pretty sure is reflective of the fact. But I dont know it to be a fact so I'm only looking for the people who know the facts, i.e. cite me a source or give me directions where I can find the information cause I've look and quite frankly, this is not my area of expertise so I dont know what is marketing BS phrasing to sell an item cause it leads people to believe 2 things are the same when in fact they are not vs statements of factual reference. So the question is, are the fx in the POD go the same exact algorithms and scrip as Helix FX or Not? Either they are or they are not. So if you have to add some bit of information, clarify or say "Yes, But..." Then for my purposes, thats a no. And actually truth be told, all I want is a yes or no. Cause if the answer is they are the same, then thats all I need to know. But if the answer is no, then I will go do the research myself. I dont mind trying to find out the information. but looking for something that possibly doesn't exist would mean a lot of wasted time if they are the same. Unfortunately, no offense to anyone here but the trolls, we all know they exists and the fact I have said I'll continue the research if I'm told no they are not the same means I I have to have a reason from you as to why you would say that just cause I dont trust anyone and I dont wanna waste my time doing research cause some guy, kid i mean, parents hate him. I dont know if they beat him, but they dont love him so he then find joy is infecting the world with negative troll energy! Sorry, everyone pays the price for that. Its like I dont during a storm thinking every bolt of lighting is the one that was suppose to kill me. But I also dont carry a metal umbrella around holding it up so that on homicidal bolt of lighting knows where the easy kill is. Let me just end by saying as heavy handed as this comment is, it is no where close to accurately being a reflection of this community. cause 99% of the people here are awesome dude who are great guitarist, or even better, new guitarists who dont care about how they sound today, they keep practicing cause they know tomorrow they will play something they are proud of. I know thats most people here. But thats all I needed, 2 sentences and 99% of the people get it. Some troll is still not gonna get the fact that I know they are out there, and I'm more than happy to embarrass you. But without this, then when I'm a lollipop in return, doesnt that just make me a troll too? But I've laid out the rules of the game, so I take no issue in treating anyone like a POS if thats how they wanna be treated. Everyone else gets respect and should someone say something profound out side of anything I considered, well, I'll let you know the day that happens. but i do say thank you to people who correct any information that I have got wrong. I could care less about winning arguments, all I want is to leave a conversation with the most accurate information we can figure out together that accurate. This is my first comment in this group, and thats why this is detailed. Cause I'll keep this so people can reference the fact I dont change my tune and should I say anything that conflicts with what I've stated today, I'd expect to be held accountable. So not that I've said what I've had to say, I wont have to say it again and lets get on with business!
  8. Hi everyone; I use HELIX NATIVE it on my Mac (with Logic Pro X) and it's like a year old, I installed it when i bought the Helix Floorboard. Is is it worth UPDRADING my HELIX NATIVE SOFTWARE??!! Will I lose the Preset Sounds I use/ have on my Logic Projects? Any guidance appreciated and thanks!
  9. I have a Helix with Variax (James Tyler) guitar and I have a Mac mini with it currently attached. A Tascam US 2x2. I regularly play music or watch Youtubes with tests etc. on the Mac, but sometimes I also want to play guitar, either through my headphones or sometimes through my presonus-eris-e5-xt-active-studio monitors. Now I always have the problem that I always have to start a Tascam app because the guitar is of course mono so if I just switch from my mini to guitar, I have to switch from stereo to mono, otherwise an irritant noise. Any idea for an external music card or mixer where I can connect all this directly and (easily) jump from one to the other? p.s. at the moment I am not running Big Sur (yet) because this will probably cause problems with my Helix.
  10. Hi, I'm selling my Helix Native License by "Gift" transfer. (150$).
  11. Hey everyone - Maybe a silly question, but I can't figure this out. Question: Can Helix Store the Stomp / Snapshot mode with the individual presets? If so, where do I change that from global to by-preset? My Helix is used in a worship ministry and is used by two different guitarists. One player has presets based on 8 snapshots. The other has presets based on 4 snapshots on the bottom and 4 stomps on top. Before each service, I have to change the global settings to accommodate each player. Sure would be easier if I didn't have to make that change in the global settings each time. Thanks! Brad
  12. I'm interested to know if anyone else using a JTV Variax guitar into Helix experiences issues with the Helix 'forgetting' patch information when Helix updates. This has happened to me every time I've done a Helix update, and even again on the 3.10 update this week. I normally use the Variax mags as my preferred pickups, but on occasion for as our setlist requires it, I set up for a drop D or open G tuning or move standard tuning steps up and/or down. The have to be done with Variax guitar models. These patches will also sit alongside patches where I am not using tunings or Variax guitar models. I find I have to go back in to each of these patches and persuade them to remember the Variax aspect of the patch. It particularly seems to affect patches where I have altered tunings. So, I'm interested to see if this is just me, and I'm missing some little trick in my set up, or if others experience the same, and if they do, why can this not be solved as part of the software/firmware update?
  13. 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
  14. Hi Friends, Just got a Macbook Air and got Ableton, Helix Native and a few other apps up and ready to go in relatively short order. The only thing remaining is transferring my tone library from my old laptop to the new one. I can't seem to find a guide on this through the Line 6 Knowledge Base. Can anyone point me in the right direction and/or share a few pointers? I also have a sizable Ownhammer IR collection which are used on many of my tones. Is there a way to transfer both libraries so they stay integrated? Side note: I have the Helix LT which I bought a few years before switching to working mostly through Ableton. I did consider transferring to the LT then from there to my new Mac but figured there must be a faster/more efficient way. Not sure if it's relevant but here's the specs of my old/new devices: Macbook Pro early 2015, Catalina: Has Helix Library + OwnHammer IR's Macbook Air 2021, Big Sur: Ableton and Helix Native are installed/authorized (factory presets only) tl;dr: Looking for info/tips on how to transfer Helix Native Library + OwnHammer IR's to new Mac. Thanks!
  15. Hello friends, I think this is an easy question and if so I apologize, but I have been more than two months with my Helix in the technical service and with many problems with the product distributor in my area and I want to check the device in detail . In principle, I think it is finally fixed, but I have a doubt. When I press the BANK button (bank up or bank down) to access a new bank of sounds, do the presets of the new bank I arrive at have to flash until I press one of them? It may be normal, but with so much tension built up, I've completely forgotten about it. Thanks everyone for your help.
  16. Is it normal for Poly Sustain to drop out after a snapshot change? None of the Poly Sustain parameters are linked to Snapshots for changes. Anyone else see this?
  17. The Amp model displayed on my Helix LT and Helix Floor does not match what Helix Edit is showing. The Helix LT is new and was just updated to 3.01 as soon as I got it out of the box. The Helix show all the new amps. HX edit does not. And it just shows a random Amp model instead of the US Princess I have saved in my user preset. If I shut HX Edit down and come back to my user preset with the US Princess it show no amp at all. Just a empty block. Any ideas? Computer is running latest Windows 10 Pro.
  18. This is my goal. I want to set up the bottom row of buttons to be specific tones. Example: metal/clean/classic rock/acoustic Sim. Then I would like my top row of buttons to be stomps that I can add to any given tone from the bottom row. Example: phaser/pitch shifter/boost/chorus. Is there any possibility that the helix can be set up this way? Essentially, this is the type of setup that I use on my XT LIVE.
  19. I run my Helix plugged into my pc via USB and out to a pair of monitor speakers, I run all my pc sound through the Helix and it’s easy to run Helix Edit for experimenting with patches. Recently bought a Marshall DSL1HR and MX112 cab. Thought I’d try running the Helix into the front of that but I get horrendous white noise/static. After much swapping of cables it turns out that it’s the USB cable form the Helix to the PC that’s causing the issue, but only when I have the Helix plugged into the amp, not the monitors. Tries replacing the USB cable with one with two ferrite shields, one each end to no avail. Plugged the Helix into a USB hub which reduced the level of the noise but at the same time introduced a whine/hum type sound. If I connect the Helix to the amp (still connected to the pc) with my Xvive wireless it’s fine, no noise at all. So I could just use wireless, but then I need to remember to keep it charged and switch it off when I’m done Any ideas how to solve the noise issue when using cables? Have tried the ground lift button on the back of the Helix.
  20. I am new to this but, I had version 2.3 on my Helix when I bought it new last Oct. I could not get the thing to do any updates until I bought a new windows 10 computer. I started updating each version from 2.3 up. I did the 2.92 update last night. There was no 3.0 update in Line 6 Updater to choose from. The only version left for me to choose was the 3.01. I started the process at 10 pm and now it's almost 10AM the next morning and the update is still circling. It says UPDATE IN PROGRESS - do not turn off or unplug your device at this time. 1. Should I just let it keep going or should I shut it down, reinstall the 2.92 version HX Edit and start over? 2. It mentions Helix Floor. Footswitches 9&10 (bottom row, middle 2 switches) between steps 9 and 10. What is this in there for? Am I supposed to hit these after it updates to do a factory update? I'm just not sure.
  21. So I am looking to get an XY Midi pad built into my guitar and I want to know if I can use it to control any effects like the Pitch Wham. If someone has done this please share with me some videos or something to show me how it was done. Much appreciated
  22. Hey guys. Not tryna rehash the same old debates, this is a simple question. Anyone in here has owned or owns an Axe Fx 3? In terms of sound, we all know we can create fantastic tones with most modern flagship modelers. The real question here is about the responsiveness of the Fractal stuff. Ive been a helix owner for a while already, and I love all the tones i can get from my rack. Regardless, I went back to buying an amp and pedals because the helix hasn't ever felt like playing thru an amp. It really is a different story. And i don't mean the sounds, i can make my Helix just as fantastic as my Marshall, but, to me, at the moment of playing, no digital modeler has ever felt as nicely responsive, full, and saturated as an amp. Is what many say true? That the Axe Fx provides that 'organic' feel when you play via it?
  23. WARNING: Utilizing FX Loop, Send, and Return blocks within the same Helix/HX preset has the potential to cause a feedback loop based on the routing and their position in the signal flow. The volume level and severity of this is feedback loop is dependent upon what is contained within the FX Loops. We strongly encourage Helix/HX users to use extra caution and awareness when using these blocks in their presets. Specifically avoid placing duplicate send blocks AFTER their corresponding Return in the signal flow. This applies to both FX loop blocks which contain both sends and returns within one block as well as individual send and return blocks. For example, if your preset contains an FX Loop 1 block (FX Loop L on HX Stomp), which utilizes both Send 1 and Return 1, DO NOT place a Send 1 block AFTER this FX Loop. The same would apply to using individual send and return blocks. For example, if you have a Send 1 block and a Return 1 block in your preset, DO NOT place a duplicate Send 1 block AFTER the Return 1 block.
  24. Firmware/Editor: Firmware 3.01; HX Edit 3.00 OS: Windows 10 Global Settings: Defined by Command Centre Bug: When copying amp parameters from a snapshot in HXEdit, and pasting to a different snapshot, the original snapshot parameters are not saved. I have a list of similar presets, each with a different amp, and each with 3 snapshots; Clean, Crunch, Dirty. The main difference for each snapshot is to allow changes to the amp parameters, Drive, CH Vol and Master. For some presets, if I use HX Edit to go to the Clean snapshot, I select and copy the amp block, switch to the Crunch snapshot, click on the amp and paste, the "Clean" parameters are visible. I can then amend them as required and save the preset (either in HX Edit or direct on the Helix floor) and everything looks OK. If I switch back to the amp in the Clean preset the parameters now show the values from the Crunch preset. The same can happen going from Clean and/or Crunch to Dirty or the other way. On some occasions it seems to work, but it is very random. I have raised a support ticket :- 397839, received some suggestions, but nothing that seems to eliminate the issue. Lesken
  25. Hi- Just updated from 2.82 to 3.01 for Helix floor. All seems to have gone smoothly, but instructions ("Step Tres") say to restore from the backup that was created prior to the update. Everything seems to be OK. Is this restore from backup mandatory for a reason I don't know about or haven't been able to determine? Wouldn't want to retrograde factory settings, for example. Thanks for your input.
