  1. I just bought a Firehawk 1500 with the FBV 3 floor pedal, and I'm wondering how to properly hook up an external loop pedal. I'm running a JTV-69 into the Firehawk 1500 via VDI cable. I have my FX send on the back of the FH1500 going into my loop pedal's input (boss RC300), and then my loop pedal's output is going back into FX return. With the current setup I have, I can hear my previously recorded loops through the amp, but I can't record anything new through the guitar. The loop pedal is only recieving the FX, not the input from my guitar. Is there any way to make this work as I want it to? I haven't been able to figure this out. Thanks.
  2. Another FireHawk Looper Question, OK two questions... I've figured how the Rec, Play, Stop, Clear All work but is there a Clear Last function ? Quite often when building up loops you get a bum take and would like to Erase or Undo that and go again over the other Previous layers. Can the present incarnation of the FireHawk firmware do that? It's not the end of the world for me if it doesn't as I have other looping options, but it would be useful to know. How much Loop Time is available ?
  3. I'm still researching the Helix, but I have a question. I have a Boss RC-300 looper, (3 loops, lots of functionality). On my current pedalboard, I set it up 2 ways. In both cases my chain is: guitar, compressor, Pitchfork, distortion, volume pedal, looper, delays, reverbs. 1) Can I use my looper in this same location with the Helix? 2) I also sometimes place the looper dead last, thus recording the signal with all effects. Can I do that? If I can do both, do I need to swap any cables, or is the looper just in one of the 4 effects lines? Thanks, really appreciate any help, Bill
  4. Hi, this is my first posting on this forum. Got a Helix LT a month ago and loving it, been playing with the looper and i think the reverse and 1/2 time is great. But I notice two unused footswitch on the top when entering the looper, so I was just wondering, maybe you guys can add another function to the switch like fade out?
  5. Figuring out Looper pedal. I found that if I place the looper symbol on my pedal at the end, I can change my patch and it won't affect the loop patch. Can I configure this looper position on the HD Edit software? Or is this something that must be done on the pedal itself?
  6. Hi. I'm a hd500x newbie. Here's my question: Let's say that I looped a whole chord progression, and overdubbed it with nice sounds and rythems. Can I some how save that looped-recording? That way I can get back to playing my improv. on the said progression - without having to record it anew every time the unit is turned off. I'm not talking about a real project with my DAW, could there be another, easier, way of saving/recording my loops? I'm hoping that someone on this forum could help me out. Thanks.
  7. Hi, Bonjour, How can I connect my Boss RC-30 Loop Station to the Spider V 240HC ? On my FENDER MUSTANG III Amp it is simple, but on my SPIDER V I cannot find a functionnal connecting. I tried with the Aux IN and a RFX out but the sound is very very noisy. Is anybody has found to connect an external looper to this AMP ? Thank you for your help ... Merci pour votre assistance ... Roland
  8. I have just got my hands on a Helix LT in the last two days and updated to the latest firmware and the latest Helix editor. I think I'm sort of getting the hang of the looper and buttons for controlling it. I've made some short loops and then noodle over top of them. But if I make a mistake on the first take on my loop (let's call it the base loop), how do I immediately cancel that loop and start a new base loop? Is there a single button switch that can do this? I know that the undo button works fine if I try to do an overdub and don't like it, it cancels out or erases the second overdub track, as expected. There is nothing about this in the manual or in searching the knowledge base. Thanks
  9. Just wondering if this is something in the works or can it be done. Looper should have a little more time and an xtra track to record.
  10. Imagine if Line6 made an iPad/iPhone looper app along the lines of GroupTheLoop or Quantiloop (but better) that had the added USP of being able to communicate two-way with the HELIX - so that by going into a special "Looper App Mode" the HELIX scribble strips behaved like an improved version of the built-in looper- but in a way where the labels would synchronise ( using OSC etc ? ) with the iOS app. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/idea-v2/902705
  11. My M9's record footswitch seems to have a habit of turning itself on. Whether I'm activating another pedal or turning on a separate preset, it would just start recording a new loop or turn on the reverb I have set to it. It's quite annoying and I can't use it anymore. I've tried looking at the footswitches inside, and one of the springs was a little weird. I switch the little screws that pushes and activates the switch for the record and stop switches, and the problem was moved to the stop switch. I decided to temporarily switch the bad screw/spring to the tap tempo so I can still use it as a looper, but the problem came back to the record after 10 minutes of playing! I also found that the footswitch itself doesn't click like the others do when you press it. Anyone have any ideas?
  12. What is the proper way for me to create a patch OR patches that will allow me to loop acoustic guitar and violin live from the Helix? I want to be able to record acoustic guitar via the looper and then immediately add violin. Ideally this would be done within a single patch where I have access to fx pedals for both. Currently I have my violin sending into "Aux1" and my acoustic guitar sending into "Guitar In." Both sound excellent. How do I preserve 2 separate signal paths (the first signal path being acoustic guitar - sending through Guitar 1; and the second path being violin - sending through Aux 1) yet have them sum to the looper? Do I need to create 2 separate patches (violin) and (AG) and switch between the two? Or can I create 1 patch using separate routing (paths 1A and paths 2A) to and somehow sum them to the looper? I was trying the latter idea of 1 patch with two separate paths (1A for guitar and 2A for violin) but guitar ends up being pushed through path 2a, thus picking up all the violin fx. Attached is my current patch. Can anyone help?
  13. Hello, I use a guitar that has acoustic and electric outputs. I can see how I could set up Helix to have two separate paths for these, and route them to separate outputs. I'm wondering if it's possible to use the looper on both paths, even if the paths were mono? I sometimes do the same thing with vocals - loop a guitar and a vocal a la KT Tunstall/Ed Sheeran etc, and again Helix looks ideal, but from reading the manual and watching demo videos I can't see for sure how I would do this, since the looper is just a stereo block. Could you advise how to set up the routing? Could I have two separate paths and then have a Merge block just before the looper with the paths panned hard left and hard right, and then split them again afterwards? I guess the ideal would be to be able to run multiple looper instances, but if there's a workaround then I'll be happy anyway.
  14. When you're in latched scene mode, and you enter and then exit the looper, you're not in latched scene mode anymore...And so you have to press Loop+3A to re-enter scene mode :( This is RIDICULOUS. So after recording a loop, I have to hold in Looper, to get out of the looper, then press Loop + 3A to enter scene mode again, and then choose my scene. That's a hold press, a double press and another press just to change the sound while looping (if you're using scenes like I do). Surely this is a bug!?
  15. I cant seem to figure out why I am not being given the option to add a looper to the block selected (after the "verb) in my chain. Ive included a picture below to clarify. I obviously want my looper to be at the end of all my effects and the switchable amp models so that all the changes I do are recorded properly for play back with loops. must be something I'm doing wrong because ive seen other chains where the looper is on path "2A" Thanks for your time.
  16. Hey, I connected Helix via USB+camera connection kit to my ipad and the Quantiloop (ver 2) looper app. When doing that, the buffer size parameter on quantiloop is stuck at buffer size 128 (not a problem to change to 256, 512, 1024 while not connected to helix). When I record a track in quantiloop like this, I can send the midi commands from helix to the app on the ipad without any problems, but I get the recorded sound back with clicks/pops... and I think it has to do with the buffer size... This is annoying, but except for that quantiloop looks like a cool app! (BTW - no problem when using Loopy HD in a similar way...)
  17. Hey, how many others out there feel the need for a fade out stop option when looping? It would be so simple to include in the next update. The looper, when selected has 2 empty buttons which could be awesome. Along with the regular stop, a second option could be immediate fade out, and the third option could be finish the loop and fade out. I hope the right person sees this and includes it in the next update...Please ??
  18. In looper mode, when you stop recording, it immediately drops into overdub mode. If you don't stop playing the riff exactly when you hit the stop recording button, you'll over dub that first note. That causes volume of the first note of the loop to double. I'd prefer that you aren't dropped into overdub immediately, and instead have to press the rec/overdub button again to start recording a new layer. Is that configurable anywhere? I can't seem to find it.
  19. Hi all. I am new on here but I am desperate for some help. Basically can you add extra footswitches to the helix? I want to be able to control the looper and maybe a couple of stomp effects from a different location to the helix (just a few feet away) Is there a pedal that can do this please? Many thanks Richard
  20. Hi all, I'm hoping someone can give me some guidance on how I can use my Helix with an external looper (Boss RC-3, for example)? I am not using an amp. My Helix goes to my studio monitors. Where in the chain do I put the RC-3? I just got my Helix and am really loving it. I just don't know how to use my RC-3 with it. Thanks! -Michael
  21. I use a DigiTech JamMan Stereo Looper. Which connection scheme would you prefer? "FX send -> external looper-> FX return" or "monitor out -> external looper -> monitor in ". Or something else? Why? I would like to record/overdub different sounds, e.g. Bass, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, therefore the simplest connection scheme "guitar/bass -> external looper -> FH's guitar input" I would not like to use, because then my looper records the dry, unprocessed instrument signal, which always runs through the currently chosen FH signalprocessing. Cheers Peter
  22. It appears to me that I can record and play a loop as long as I'm in the tone patch only. After switching to another tone patch or after switching off my Helix, the phrase is gone. Is there a possibility to store a loop-phrase assigned to a patch, so that I could record a loop at home and call (play) it on stage while playing a second phrase live?
  23. 1-I want to assign the Helix looper function to al my patches and activate by a footswitch 2-the first single path has run out of space how do I add more patches
  24. Hi all - I'm a new HD Pro user, and a complete noob when it comes to multi-FX units, looping, etc (used individual stompboxes for years and years, however). Hoping for suggestions / answers to a tricky situation I need to solve for a particular song: "Moonchild" by Iron Maiden, which I'm doing with a tribute band that I just joined in the Dave Murray role and which just added this song to the setlist for a gig coming up in 3 weeks. In this song, there is a single acoustic guitar under the start of the intro. As the last acoustic chord rings out, a distorted, sustained power chord swell comes in underneath, and shortly after that the other guitarist comes in with a melody. So I need to execute that power-chord swell, while the last acoustic chord is still ringing out. The overlap between the two different sounds is not very long, but there does need to be a little overlap between the decay of the acoustic chord and the distorted power chord swelling in. Can I do either of the following to achieve this, while keeping the two tones separate, and if so, how? (1) Use some sort of effect on my acoustic patch to prolong the sustain of that last chord while I switch to a distorted tone, turn my volume knob down, hit the low-E power chord, and then swell it? Or: (2) Record that power-chord swell as a loop, and trigger the loop right after I hit the last acoustic chord so it comes in while the acoustic part is still ringing out, and switch to my distorted rhythm patch while the loop plays back? The real Iron Maiden does this song live today using three guitarists - Dave does the acoustic part, Janick hits the power-chord swell, and Adrian comes in with the melody. When Maiden had only two guitarists, they did this song live with the intro as playback from the album, then switched to live playing at the beginning of the verse as the band ran out onto the stage (as they did with Aces High when they started the show with that song). We've gotta do it with only two guitars. I'm running the HD Pro with mono output into one channel of a Marshall 9005 power amp, output mono into the speaker cab with the other channel unused. So if any suggestions involve stereo operation, I'll have to change my setup somewhat. Thanks!
  25. Hi, I am with a company designing a custom midi controller that we wanted to have work with the M9. We are using Arduino to implement the controller. I have the looper doing play/stop and record via midi, all of which work great. When I tried to implement overdubbing, the M9 does not respond. I am sending a midi control change message with controller number 50 and a value of 0 on channel 1. I have tested this by sending the midi message to Abelton, which recieves it correctly and verifies this is what is being sent. I have also tried implementing it via Arduino's midi library and via their serial.write sending the message manually. I checked the midi input in setup as well, and have tried it both as channel 1 and omni. Another weird thing is that when the M9 is in record mode and receives this message it goes into playing while overdubbing, but once the M9 is playing the message does nothing. Really unsure what is wrong here unless our M9 is just defective, I have exhausted every other factor of error I can think of. I am going off the midi controls listed in the manual here: http://line6.com/data/6/0a060b316ac34f0593fca717b/application/pdf/M9%20Advanced%20Guide%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20A%20).pdf We are on a deadline to have this working so any help is very much appreciated. Thanks!
