  1. Hello! I want to use HX Stomp XL as audio interface. My problem is that simple audio playback and recording are as noisy as changing frequencies between radio stations. The sound is unrecognisable. Sound file attached. Of course, I installed HX Edit and the firmware, everything is the latest version. The pedal works perfectly with the bass, I can also work properly in HX Edit. I did reset Stomp to factory settings. The problem persists. There are no special settings in the Audio MIDI setup. 48000khz and Steam 1. (image attached below) I also checked the cables. Attached the Ableton settings image below. Focusrite Scarlett 4i4 was previously installed on the Macbook, which works flawlessly (and all other audio interfaces too). Could this be interfering with Stomp? OS and software versions: - macOS Sonoma 14.3.1 - HX Stomp XL Firmware 3.71.0 - HX Edit 3.70 - Line 6 Helix Driver2 Version 1.5.0 - DAW: Ableton Live 11 lite version 11.3.21 I read the HX Stomp maunal, asked Google, Youtube, AI to review the docs and asked him, but I couldn't find the solution. What did I miss? Any ideas? I tried it on Dell Inspiron with Windwos 10, that one is a bit older notebook. Focusrite was also installed before, tried with it, then uninstalled it as its possible. But the results were the same. Audio MIDI Setup Ableton settings xs-stomp-xl-rec-sound.mp3
  2. I'm on my 3rd HX Stomp XL power supply in one year. They cost me $63.00 each with tax. The thin wire frays where it enters the AC box due to the proximity of that cylinder that's about the size of a C battery. My 25 year old POD power supply is still perfect, as is my 16 year old my m9 power supply, but I don't think those are compatible with the Stomp XL. I don't think the good folks at Line 6 were on "Top of their game" with this issue, which is an problem for other players according to the reviews. If anyone has a "fix" for this, please let me know. I guess the stomp is fine for desktop use only, but I thought I could use it successfully in professional studio and live performances. Maybe the Line 6 folks will address this in the future with a more professional power supply.
  3. 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?
  4. Hi everyone, On my HX Stomp XL, most presets included 4 snapshots. Sometimes, in order to work on my sounds, I like export a preset form my HX Stomp XL into my HX Stomp, which supports only 3 snapshots per preset. What happens then to the 4 snapshots ? Does the import process automatically get rid of the 4th snapshot and import snapshots 1-3 into the HX Stomp ? cheers Vincent
  5. I'm quite new to using switchers So at the moment, I've got a HX Stomp XL, a wah pedal and the Boss ES-5. I want to use the ES-5 to switch pedals on and off in the stomp as well as the external wah pedal and also change patches. Could someone explain to me how I could do this? I've connected the wah into one loop of the ES 5 and connected the HX Stomp with MIDI cables to the ES 5 - not sure if this is correct?
  6. I am brand new to using IRs, so I just want to make sure I haven't skipped a step or done something wrong. I have some new York Audio IRs that I got into HX Edit and onto my Stomp XL. I can choose them while making a preset, and I can hear my guitar when I play because I come through an empty channel on a modeling amp whenever I use my Stomp XL. I get the slightest change in sound, but it's still very quiet and muffled whenever I add any of my IRs - like I'm really only hearing my guitar come through this barebones channel with minimal changes. They just don't sound like much of anything, and I don't understand. Even when I make a full preset with other effects with the IR, it's just a quiet muffled mess, as if there's no amp.
  7. Hi guys, I'm pretty sure something isn't working as it should with my HX Stomp XL (firmware 3.50) but correct me if I'm wrong... What I want to happen is when I press the mode switch and then I select a preset, the unit returns to stomp mode so I get the coloured blocks for the pedals etc. I'm pretty sure this would be setting 'Preset Mode' to 'Moment' in the Footswitches tab of global settings... But what does happen is what I believe 'Latch' should do, basically select that preset but remain in preset select mode. Adjusting 'Preset Mode' to 'Moment' or 'Latch' changes nothing about how the unit operates, and a factory reset hasn't fixed it either. Anyone incurred this before, or know if I'm being a bit slow?! Thanks in advance for any comments and help.
  8. I have the DL4 MKII, and its stellar performance convinced me to order an HX Stomp XL. My question is how much of the DL4's function will the HX. Stomp XL replace? Should I hang on to the DL4, or would I be safe selling it to offset the expense of the Stomp? I'm reading through owner's manuals trying to find the answer, but the wisdom of the Line6 Hive Mind is something I'd value. Thanks!
  9. Hi all, I have my HX Stomp XL set to snapshot mode. When I hit the mode button to change to stompbox mode the display does not change to show pedal names (only the footswitches changes color) and it still shows snapshots which is quite confusing while performing! Does anyone know how to fix this? Best, Nick XL_snapshot_mode.HEIC XL_stompbox_mode.HEIC
  10. Has anyone else experienced this? Last night I took my HX Stomp XL to a gig. I plugged it all up to a Old Fender Super 60 using the mono input/output ports and nothing. No sound at all. It works in the analog bypass but when the bypass is turned off there is no sound at all. I even did a factory reset and lost all of my time consuming hand built presets. I took it home and plugged it all up to a Fender Blues Jr using the same cables, power supply, and guitar and everything works fine. By the way this is the second time this has happened and I have never been able to get it to work with the Super 60. I'm scratching my head here, is there a certain impedance required for the output in order for it to work??
  11. I would like to get from a clean sound to a nice bluesy solo sound by expression pedal, not by snapshot. If I only turn up the drive, the sound gets too loud. So I would have to build in a volume reduction at the same time. I have no idea how to do that. Can anyone help?
  12. Here is a quick guide on assigning dual momentary footswitch options to your HX Stomp or HX Stomp XL using the external switch jack: Global Settings > Preferences > Page 2 will show EXP FS Tip and EXP FS Ring. These setting should be assigned to FS4/FS7 and FS5/FS8 accordingly. Next menu item over: Global Settings > Footswitches > FS4(FS7) Function, FS5(FS8) Function assignment on page 2. These can be assigned to different functions such as Stomp buttons OR Preset up and down. HX Stomp Controllers & Snapshots video
  13. Hi All, I have a problem regarding the integration of my HX Stomp XL into the FX Loop of my ENGL Fireball: I connect using 4CM: Guitar -> Stomp Input L / MONO -> Stomp Output L / MONO -> Fireball Input (Preamp) -> Fireball FX Send -> Stomp Return L / Mono -> Stomp Send -> Fireball FX Return -> Fireball Speaker Out -> Speaker The Fireballs FX Loop Knop is turned fully to the right (100% Wet FX Loop). Noise Gate at 12 o'clock. Now any time I try out an 4CM Preset of the stomp or create my own preset including an FX Loop block I get a high pitching continuous sound from my amp / box which does not sound healthy at all. It is really squeeling and not the typical noise. Sounds much more artifical an constant. Would be very happy if you could help me with your experience as under the current described circumstances I cannot use the Stomp with the ENGL which really is a pitty. Thank you so much! Best regards, Max
  14. Hello, I don’t play live much anymore but I still have my dream rig. 2 Variax Standards, 1pod HD500x controlling 2 line 6 DT 50 amps with L6S link. I’ve been watching the helix for years now, and Sweetwater over Xmas of 2021 had the helix native on sale for the non hardware owner for 199.00 so I couldent resist. The HD500x does not work well as an audio interface when using the VDI so I purchased a Berlinger uphoria 204. That works nice but now I haven’t figured out the midi yet to use the HD500x as a midi controller for native AND still control my 2 DT 50s. First I tried just plugging the Berlinger outs into the 2 DT 50s returns. Nothing at all with the l6 link connected, unplugged one amp just to try it mono, it worked, sounded great but there’s a lot of hum. I would totally have to control amp controls in the helix native, using the DT 50 gives you a tube power amp with zero control. Except for the mix control next to the dt50 fx loop. Turning that down to the middle detent almost makes the hum tolerable . It’s loud enough for my studio but not if I ever wanted to use native live/ in case I do. I’ve decided I’m never going to bring a computer into a live situation. I don’t think a computer is reliable enough for something critical like live playing. There’s no do overs should something freeze. anyway, I’ll probably get a helix floor or better but much more expensive the helix rack with the almost 500 dollar controller. So in the meantime it looks like the HX stomp has all the sounds of the full helix. I’m wondering if I can create patches in the HD500x so I still have an expression pedal although it could only be used for the hd fx, the volume pedal would work the whole thing, I’m one of those that still thinks the HD500x sounds great and to be honest the price difference now between a full helix and my hd500 isn’t worth 3x the cost. I love the I/os and for example the what is it 6 fx loop ins/outs can be used both ways you can select one as another input or outputs, it’s amazing if I’m reading it right it like they just put some empty jacks in back and when you assign them to something it’s like they are magically hardwired correctly. That’s amazing, I know the helix 3.0 has some control over the DT series amps but not as com-Pete as the hd. what I’m asking is if one of you still wanted to use your 2 hd series amps as stereo amps with the L6Link, and the control plus some dsp of the HD500x and the Variax control, but you wanted to add some of the large number of amps with full amp or pre amp, tons of fx, basically adding helix sound to my existing dream stereo rig, how would you do it. Would you leave the HD500x in control and add the HX stomp long version to your HD500x fx loop and not the other way around. In other words just like if you were adding just one stomp to your HD500x through the fx loop you add the full HX board the same way, but then in my mind comes the massive amount of programming for lack of words, you gotta build your HX preset first, then through the midi controller add the HX preset like other things to a HD500x foot switch. Question, if I have multiple different presets will the HX change everytime I step on a new button on the hd 500x? I hope I’m not too discouraging, I’m just afraid I’ll buy it and leave it in the box because I’ll have 3 days of manual reading to learn how to hook it up. Thanks hope it’s not too annoying.
  15. I am just learning my new HX stomp XL. In many factory presets amps or distortions have a question mark. It is said: "not recognized in this version of the HX stomp" I used a normal XL stomp before and everything was fine. I hope I will be able to import my selfmade presets into the XL and everything will work fine. Any experiences?
  16. HX stomp XL For me the red blinking footswitch ring is disturbing. I never use the TAP function. I am looking for a solution to switch off the blinking and want to use this footswitch only for switching on the tuner.
  17. Does anyone know if presets for the HX Stomp Will work with the HX Stomp XL meaning can I import all my presets from my HX Stomp to the new HX Stomp XL?
  18. Hi, how to navigate through the presets in 6-switch stomp mode? I did not see this addressed in the manual. Thanks.
