  1. Hey fellow musicians! Well, the question is kinda simple. Can I/how do I make the Digitakt trigger the Line6 Helix’s looper to start and stop via MIDI? If it is possible please explain it to me in details as I am pretty new to the MIDI world and really have a hard time understanding all the CC messages and so on… Note: I already have my Digitakt sending MIDI cloc, so that the Line6 Helix’s tempo is in sync - I just need it to make a loop that fits(starts and ends) perfectly in grid. Thanks in advance!! <3
  2. Line 6 Powercab Plus MIDI Control with Helix MIDI This works with Firmware Version 2.20 and later. Have your Helix Floor, Helix Rack, Helix LT or HX Effects automatically switch to any desired Powercab Plus channel Preset or combination of settings when pressing any Helix Preset or Snapshot button. You can easily change the Powercab Plus’ configuration from Helix’ Presets or Snapshots. For example, you may want the Powercab Plus in LF Flat mode for a particular Preset or Snapshot, then switch to Speaker Mode with a Vintage speaker model for a different Preset or Snapshot. A word about Powercab Plus Preset management. There are two basic ways to implement MIDI control for Powercab Plus with Helix MIDI. 1) Program Change using MIDI PC (Program Change) messages, and 2) Control Change using MIDI CC (Control Change or Continuous Controller) messages. 1) Program Change - In this scheme, when changing Presets or Snapshots on Helix, the Powercab Plus switches to it’s corresponding Preset. For example, switching to Preset 004 on Helix would switch Powercab Plus to it’s Preset 004 or whatever Preset you programmed in Helix. With this method there is only one setting in Helix that has to be programmed. All of the Powercab Plus settings are set and saved in Powercab Plus using the onboard screen or Powercab Edit app. 2) Control Change - In this scheme, Helix transmits all of the desired Powercab Plus settings to Powercab Plus using CC messages, regardless of what Preset Powercab Plus is currently on. No settings are required to be set or saved in Powercab Plus. For example, switching to Preset 004 on Helix could switch Powercab Plus settings to use a Green speaker model. Then, switching Snapshots within Preset 004 could switch the Powercab Plus speaker model to Vintage. Or, a Helix Preset could be configured to tell Powercab Plus to use a speaker model and then switching to different Helix Preset could then tell Powercab Plus to switch LF Flat mode. The advantages of using Control Change is, you don’t have to maintain individual Presets in Powercab Plus, it doesn’t matter what Powercab Plus Preset you are currently on, and it works when plugging into any Powercab Plus, even somebody else’s (as long as Helix and Powercab Plus are set on the same MIDI channel). IMPORTANT - When using MIDI Program Change or Control Change switching for Presets and Snapshots it is important to note that Powercab Plus will always remain it it’s last state unless it is sent a message or messages to alter that state. For example, if Powercab Plus had been set on a Preset that called for a Green speaker model, then you switched to a different Helix Preset, unless you send Powercab Plus either a PC message or one or more CC messages to change that, Powercab Plus will remain in it’s last state, set on the Green speaker. Getting Started DO THIS FIRST Connect a standard five pin MIDI cable from the Helix ‘MIDI Out/Thru’ connector to the Powercab Plus ‘Midi In’ connector. DO THIS SECOND Connect a USB cable from Powercab Plus to your computer and launch Powercab Edit. This is only to monitor the status of Powercab Plus to make sure your Helix MIDI settings are doing what you want them to do. Changing Powercab Plus Presets with Helix Presets and Snapshots If you prefer to use Powercab Plus Presets and switch between them using Helix Presets and/or Snapshots, this is for you. You can have your Powercab Plus switch to any of it’s Presets when changing Helix Presets or Snapshots. This is done with MIDI PC messages. Here’s how. 1. Go to the Helix Preset you want to program. 2. Navigate to Menu > Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo > Page 2 > MIDI PC Send - set this to MIDI or MIDI + USB 3. Navigate to Menu > Command Center 4. Highlight an Instant Command (Lightning Bolt) You should see five settings. Set them like this. Command: Bank/Prog Midi Ch: Base (or whatever MIDI channel you have Powercab Plus is set on.) Bank CC00: off Bank CC32: off Program: 4 (or whatever Powercab Plus Preset you want to use.) SAVE SAVE Repeat for Snapshots if desired. Check Powercab Edit to make sure it is working as expected. In this example, when you recall the selected Helix Preset, Powercab Plus will switch to it’s Preset 004. Done. Now, every time you press that Helix Preset button, Powercab Plus will switch to it’s Preset that you have programmed into Helix. Repeat for other Presets. Changing Powercab Plus Settings with Helix Presets and Snapshots If you don’t want to have to maintain Presets in Powercab Plus, and you want to change Powercab Plus settings with Helix Presets and Snapshots, and you don’t mind a little extra programming, this is for you. 1. Go to the Helix Preset you want to program. 2. Navigate to Menu > Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo > Page 2 > MIDI PC Send - set this to Off 3. Navigate to Menu > Command Center 4. Highlight an Instant Command (Lightning Bolt) In this example we will Program Helix to send two CC messages to Powercab Plus, telling it to switch to Flat Mode with LF Flat Voicing. With the first Instant Command (Lightning Bolt) highlighted, you should see five settings. Using the MIDI tables from the Manual to set the following as desired. This first Instant Command will send a CC message to Powercab Plus telling it you want Flat Mode. Command: MIDI CC Midi Ch: Base (or whatever MIDI channel you have Powercab Plus set on.) CC#: 20 Value: 0 With a second Instant Command (Lightning Bolt) highlighted, set the following values. This sends a CC message to Powercab Plus telling it you want LF Flat Voicing. Command: MIDI CC Midi Ch: Base (or whatever MIDI channel you have Powercab Plus set on.) CC#: 21 Value: 2 SAVE SAVE Up to six Instant Commands can be used per Helix Preset. Check Powercab Edit to make sure it is working as expected. In this example, when you recall the selected Helix Preset, Powercab Plus will switch to it’s Flat Mode with LF Flat Voicing. Done.

    externally Control the volume of Powercab

    Hi, As I find very difficult to control the volume (home usage) of Powercab 112Plus specially when placed at an angle using the back slide legs , what kinda of options I have? e.g. using a volume pedal (or expression pedal with midi) e.g. using the HX stomp (volume knob) with my foot without obviously affect the volume of the USB interface? e.g. using old blood noise express volume etc. only asking cause i don't know how volume pedals work (why would I add a boost maybe dirty my signal/sound) and yes I don't like the back control panel despite liking the clean front design.

    HX Effects expression button

    I am currently building an HX effects into a rack for someone. They will be using 4 cable at the amp. For the most part the drive will be coming from the amp but, they were asking if they could have 1 boost in front of the amp that they could click off/on from the front of stage. All that will currently be at the front of stage is a Voodoo Lab Commander. This will only have MIDI to the HX Effects. I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find a switch that can be run to the expression jack that can be assigned to an effect. I've so far tested a regular switch and a hard switch, both TS/TRS and nothing seems to work. I see that Mission has a pedal that has a toe switch (not sure if that's Helix/Stomp only) but, I don't need an expression pedal. Thanks to anyone that can point me in the right direction of a product or the how-to (switch type, cable type, etc.)!

    Helix MIDI preset changes V2.81

    This post is for those who use a PC to trigger MIDI events in Helix. Since I updated to the 2.8 firmware, my USB connectivity for MIDI is not working. I’ve checked all of my settings, reinstalled the ASIO audio driver and validated my USB connection to the PC as I’m able to control Helix perfectly through HX Edit app. I also validated the issue by reverting back to 2.71 and testing and everything worked fine. I also copied all of the global settings so I could reset them all in 2.8. Well, the issue is back and I don’t know what to try next. Any known issues or ideas you can share with us? I really need to resolve this before my upcoming live performances, thanks!

    Hx Stomp and Hx Effects Midi

    Is it possible for me to control the snapshots on the Hx stomp via midi from the Hx effects? For example, If im on preset 1a snapshot 1 for both the stomp and FX, if i were to switch to snapshot 2 on the FX is there a way to get the HX Stomp to go to snapshot 2 as well with just the one click of the FX?

    Midi amp switching per snapshot

    Hi there! First post here! Been a happy L6 user since X3 days until my Helix LT and this community has been a source of inspiration. Now I recently got a HX Effects to use with my JVM410H, and everything sounds killer but I wish I could assign different midi messages to different snapshots so that I can switch the amp channels. What I'd like to do is assign snapshot 1 to my clean channel, snapshot 2 to crunch and so on. I've search the forum and only could find info about EXT AMP switching (TS cable) but nothing about midi and snapshots. I guess it has something to do with INSTANT COMMANDS but can't find an answer. What am I missing? Is there a way to do so? Thank you very much, any help will be appreciated.
  8. When I've got my Helix connected to ableton, every time I select a new patch, it sends a pitch bend signal to ableton, which makes programming buttons across multiple patches really obnoxious. Any idea how to stop this from happening?
  9. Hello, I saw a post back in 2016 asking if it is possible to add MIDI foot switch to Pocket POD. (Here is the link to related post https://line6.com/support/topic/19104-pocket-pod-midi-footswitch/) In the below link you may see my solution for controlling Pocket POD using Raspberry Pi W as a MIDI controller. This video shows Pocket POD connection with Raspberry Pi Zero W https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2I2CBarQQ8 Program runs on Raspberry Pi Zero W. It is also working on Raspberry Pi Model B. You may connect your cell phone or tablet to Raspberry Pi to change presets etc. on Pocket POD. Also I have added buttons and Pots to Raspberry Pi via IO Pins. Therefore I can control Pocket POD with hardwired buttons and potentiometers. I modified a volume pedal to add wah wah control on Pocket POD. Here is the method Volume pedal pot ---> MCP3008 (ADC) ---> Raspberry Pi(running PD) -----(MIDI Control Commands) ---> Pocket POD * Only OTG cable required to connect both devices * At the end of the video I tried Wah Wah with tablet's motion sensor. I forgot my tablet does not have motion sensor :). But it works with my phone. Shake your phone and you get Wah Wah effect.

  10. Hi, I bought an HX Effects yesterday, absolutely loving the tones and functions. Now I am looking to delve into using MIDI to change the channel on my Blackstar Series One 45; to change from 'Warm Clean' with an Orange LED to 'Super Crunch' with a Red LED, changing between these two on a footswitch press. Any advice please? This is the first time I've ever used MIDI and I'm not fully sure what to do. Thank you all.
  11. Hey Everyone!! I am wondering if the Helix Control outputs general midi through the USB port like a standard USB midi controller and if so would that mean its possible to use it to control a daw as a stand-alone midi controller without the helix rack? Im just looking for a good midi controller that has scribble strips... and the helix control would be perfect for what I need!! if it sends midi. Also, would it be possible to edit the scribble strips without the helix rack? Thank, Cheers!
  12. This is a project I've been messing around with. It lets you really open up the possibilities of your FBV3 and /or FBV shortboard MkII. It allows for full color functionality of FBV3 as well. It requires some basic know-how with an Arduino at present, though with very little effort on Line 6's part, that may not be necessary in the future. Check it out: https://github.com/kquann/FBV_MIDI
  13. Hi, new to the forum and am the owner of a new Helix. I am..was MIDI illiterate, and tried to get info online on how to control my Invective with the Helix without much luck. Any threads regarding this topic usually had very vague information, probably with the notion that whoever was reading it already had an understanding of MIDI...which I didn't. So...this is for the people out there like me. Step one...plug in the footswitch that comes with the Invective and press the Channel 1 select button. Then press the Preset Mode button until all the buttons blink red. Then select Channel 1, and disconnect the footswitch from the amp. Insert MIDI cable from Helix...a 5 pin unlike the 8 pin that the Invective comes with into the amp. Next, go to Global Settings and select MIDI/TEMPO. Select Midi Base Channel as Omni. Then toggle to Preferences and make sure that Snapshot Edits are on "Recall"...not "Discard". Next..hit Menu, and select Command Center. I use the Instant Commands so I can use it with snapshots. Toggle over to Instant 1 in Bank/Program Mode. Set MIDI Channel to 1, leave the Bank CC00 and Bank CC32 blank. Then look in the Invective manual Pages 13-15, and select the Program number with the configuration that you want into the "Program" box in the Command Center. Exaple: If you want the 1st channel with Loop 1 on..enter 36 If you want the 3rd channel with the Gate, Boost, Master boost, and Loop 1 enter 59. It's so simple. I can't believe it took me as long as it did to figure out. And lastly, press save before leaving the Preset and all your settings will stick. I hope I can help some other clueless people like myself with these instructions.
  14. Hi I have Line6 Pod Hd500x as a multi-effect unit when I play with my guitar. At the same time, I want to use Ableton Live 10 during live performances to launch midi clips (e.g. a Violin part). I know how to map midi keys from controllers or laptop. So, I know how to do this using a dedicated midi controller (e.g. M-AUDIO Keystation32) or my laptop keyboard. My question is can I also map the knobs of POD HD500x (e.g. FS2, FS3 etc.) as midi “keys” in Ableton so that I don’t have to use a separate midi foot controller for this purpose? Has anyone done this with Ableton Live and Line 6 POD HD500x? Thanks in advance George

    HX Stomp midi footswitch question

    Hi Folks, Just got a HX Stomp. Great pedal! One seemingly silly question I have is: will a 3 or 4 button midi amp footswitch work with the HX Stomp? (Like a Peavey or Randall 4 or 5 switch for amps) for turning fx on and off? Or would I be better off with a Midi Mongoose. I don't want to spend any more than $125 if possible. Whats an inexpensive way to add foot switches. -Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere. Just joined. Thanks!
  16. Hi there, I have benn using my Helix LT for a year or two now and one of the feature I use the most is midi remote control from Cubase 10. We play to a clic and follow a Cubase project and all my preset and snapshot changes are triggered from a midi track in cubase assigned to helix through midi over USB. What I would like to do now is to get rid of the FBV shortboard MKII that I use to start, stop and navigate through Cubase markers and use Helix to do that instead. The problem I run into is that whenever I go to a certain marker using Helix as my midi remote, Cubase then sends back a midi program change command to Helix in order to go to the appropriate preset. When this happens, Helix then transmit back a midi command to Cubase telling it where it's at and releasing the footswitch now that I'm in a new preset also sends a midi command back to Cubase... this gives some weird behaviors like midi feedback and dual commands (press once but feels like I pressed twice) and most of the time all will fail. Is there a way to seperate the midi channel from the DAW remote from the midi channel from the preset/snapshot control? Thank you!

    DT50/DT25: FAQ

    Zur deutschen Version. La version française. Please read through the DT50/DT25 Terminology FAQ first, to familiarize yourself with the terms that will be referenced here. Application Q: Are there any presets on the DT50/DT25 amplifier in the manner of previous Line 6 amps? A: No. The DT50/DT25 behaves like a traditional amp where the user simply dials in a tone to the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) functionality. Q: Are the DT50/DT25 amplifiers Mono(phonic)? A: As with most tube amplifiers, yes. Q: Which type of amp modeling is using with the DT50/DT25? A: Line 6's newest HD amp models (same as our new POD HD). Q: How does the power amp tubes contribute to the DT50/DT25's sound? A: The EL34's (DT50) or EL84's (DT25) are the main source of distortion in the amp. The guitar signal is actually being amplified at every progressive stage in the circuit, but the power tubes are the first to truly "clip" and provide the distortion that most tube amp devotees desire. Q: How does the modeling of the DT50/DT25 contribute to the overall tone? A: In the DT50/DT25's "normal mode", the modeling performs the function of the preamp: mating the digital preamp with the analog power amp so the whole system creates the sound of the amp modeled. This is different than our previous Spider Valve amps, where we modelled the entire amp model (pre-amp and power amp) and then fed that signal through the output tube power section. In "low power mode" (pulling the master volume switch out on the DT50 or on the DT25 flipping the switch on the back panel), the digital modeling section will assume duties for the power amp section and the Master Volume has been scaled so that you can have the sound of a driven power amp at lower monitoring volume levels. If you turn the master volume knob all the way up in this mode, you will have Spider Valve-like tones behavior (where the pre and power amp software modeling signal is pushing the EL34 or EL84 tubes). In both Normal and Low Power modes, cabinet modeling is applied to the output signal fed to the power tubes. When using a POD HD device connected via L6 Link, you must use the default cabinet model that is recalled on the POD HD 'pre' amp model when using the L6 Link connection with the DT amp to get the same type of sound as using the DT amplifier by itself with the same amp model. Lastly, when using Low Volume Mode on the DT amp with a POD HD connected via L6 Link, the sound of a 'Pre' amp model selected on the POD preset will sound slightly different if an identical amp model is selected on the DT amplifier (on Channel B ). This is because when using the Low Volume Mode on the DT amp with L6 Link, Channel A on the DT amp with the POD modeling is still using the just the PRE amp model with the scaled Master Volume knob, whereas Channel B on the DT amp uses the preamp AND power amp modeling with the scaled Master Volume. The inclusion of the power modeling is what makes it sound differently. Q: What is the difference between the DT25 and the DT50 amplifier? A: The DT25 operates at 25 watts maximum output using two (2) EL84 power tubes vs. the EL34's found in our DT50's. Otherwise, it is essentially the same as its big-brother, the DT50. For more info, please check the new product page for the DT25 here. DT50/DT25 Voicings Switch I Negative Feedback Loop (NFL) setting is high; channel control behavior much like that of a West Coast American amp of the 1960s. Recommended settings: Class AB & Pentode. II NFL is medium; channel control behavior much like that of a classic British amp of the 1960s known for it's "glassy" yet warm tones. Recommended settings: Class AB & Pentode. III Zero Negative Feedback Loop operation (a very open/dynamic feeling amp); channel control behavior much like that of a 'chime-like tone' British amp of the 1960s. Recommended settings: Class A & Pentode (clean) or switch to Triode (for rounder, more vintage feel). IV NFL is low in value, with an added low frequency resonance ideally suited for modern high-gain voicing; channel control behavior much like that of a more recent West Coast American amp of the 1990s. Recommended settings: Class AB & Pentode. Class A & Class AB Switch Class A: Cathode biased. Provides the player with more dynamic with touch sensitivity. DT50 operates at 25 watts. DT25 operates at 10 watts. Class AB: Fixed biased. Provides greater headroom and power than Class A. DT50 operates at 50 watts. DT25 operates at 25 watts. Pentode & Triode Switch Pentode: Clearer tone and more headroom. Triode: Rounder tone, less output and more vintage feel. L6 Link L6 LINK is a proprietary Digital Audio connection developed for exclusive connection between the POD HD series modeling processors and the DT50/DT25 amplifier(s). Do NOT connect any other sort of analog audio device that appears to have a standard 3-pin (XLR) connector to the L6 LINK, as damage will occur. Connect a digital XLR cable (AES/EBU cable) from the POD HD L6 LINK jack directly to the DT amp's L6 LINK IN jack. Most XLR cables should provide sufficient performance, but use a digital XLR (AES/EBU) cable for best performance and signal to noise ratio. Specifications DT50 Specifications DT25 Specifications Q: Is there a chart for the amp models of the DT series amps and the POD HD series? A: Yes, there is a .pdf document with this information here. *Please note, most of the amp models on the DT series are only accessible via MIDI. Please reference the following document for information on accessing these models: Using MIDI to Change Amp Settings on the DT50/DT25 Amplifiers Q: What speakers are used the DT50/DT25 amps? A: DT50/DT25 112 Combo has the Celestion custom G12H90 12" speaker. DT50 212 Combo has a Celestion custom G12H90 12" and a Celestion Vintage 30 12" speaker. Q: What tubes ship in the DT50/DT25 amps? A: DT50: Electro-Harmonix 12AX7 preamps tubes (2) and Electro-Harmonix EL34 power tubes (2). DT25: Chinese-branded 12AX7 preamp tube (1) and Electro-Harmonix EL84 power tubes (2). Q: What is the Bias Spec on the DT50's EL34 power tubes? A: 36 mV +/- 1 mV. Q: What is the Bias Spec on the DT25's EL84 power tubes? A: 22 mV +/- 3 mV. Q: What Line 6 controllers work with the DT50/DT25? A: Any of the POD HD series units. They utilize the new proprietary L6 Link (3-pin) digital connection to control amp topology settings in Channel A to whatever parameters are set in the active POD HD patch. There is a jack labelled for "Footswitch" on the back of the amp to allow for switching between Channel A and B. Please use a "tip-sleeve" (mono 1/4") latching-type footswitch to use this feature. Setup/Connection Q: Is there a headphone output on the DT50/DT25 series? A: No. Q: Is there a bias switch to change the power tubes to 6L6's or other tube types? A: No, the DT50/DT25 series do not offer bias-switchable options and were designed to operate with the EL34 (DT50) or EL84 (DT25) power output tubes. Q: Can I run my DT50/DT25 without a speaker load? A: No! You should always run a tube amplifier with a speaker load present. Please follow the properly load connection requirements as silkscreened on the back of the amplifier chassis. Q: Will installing casters on a DT50/DT25 112 or 212 combo chassis void my warranty? A: No, correctly installed casters will not void the warranty. However, if you are not 100% sure on how to correctly install casters, please take your amp to a qualified amp/service technician and have them install the hardware. We do NOT cover damage caused to the amplifier from an incorrect installation! *** Here is a link to one of our Forum Members (MDinice) who was kind enough to share a template for Ernie Ball type casters: http://line6.com/community/thread/57744?tstart=0 (the template is also available at the bottom of this document). Known-Issues 12AX7 Preamp Tube Swapping: If you decide to swap out different 12AX7 preamp tubes, do NOT use anything labeled 'LP' (Long Plate) for the first preamp tube stage (labeled as V3), as 'LP' labeled tubes are extremely microphonic. Q: How do I control the v2.0 update features of the DT25/DT50 amplifier using MIDI? A: We have created a document to help with sending MIDI to your DT amplifier to control the various additional features of the v2.0 update. Please see the following document for these instructions: Using MIDI to Change Amp Settings on the DT50/DT25 Amplifiers Also, here is a link with information on troubleshooting tube amplifiers: Troubleshooting Your Tube Amp Bitte lesen Sie sich zuerst DT50/DT25 Terminology FAQ durch um sich mit den Begriffen bekannt zu machen, die im folgenden Dokument Verwendung finden. Gibt es Presets auf dem DT25/DT50, so wie auf anderen Line 6 Verstärkern? Nein, die DT25/DT50 Verstärker verhalten sich genau wie traditionelle Verstärker. Sind die DT25/DT50 Verstärker Mono? Ja, so wie die meisten Röhrenverstärker. Welche Art Verstärkermodelierung wird bei den DT25/DT50 angewandt? Wir verwenden sie neusten Line 6 HD Verstärkermodelle. (wie im POD HD) Wie tragen die Röhren zum Sound der DT25/DT50 bei? Die EL34 (DT50) und EL84 (DT25) sind die Hauptquelle für die Verzerrung des Verstärkers. Das Signal wird nach und nach im Verstärker verstärkt, aber die Röhren haben hier den größten Einfluss. Sie liefern den ersehnten Verzerrungston, den die meisten Röhrenverstärker haben. Wie trägt das Modelling der DT25/DT50 zum Sound bei? Im „Normal“ Modus übernimmt das Modelling die Funktion des Vorverstärkers. Es führt die digitale Vorverstärkung mit der analogen Endstufe zusammen um den modellierten Sound zu erreichen. Bei unseren alten Spider Verstärkern, im Gegensatz, haben wir den gesamten Verstärker modelliert und dieses Signal durch die Röhren geschickt. Im „Low“ Modus übernimmt das digitale Modelling die Arbeit der Endstufe und der Master Volume Knopf ist so skaliert, dass Sie den Ton einer aufgedrehten Endstufe auch bei niedrigen Abhörlautstärken erreichen. Wenn Sie den Master Volume Knopf hinten gegen drehen erhalten Sie einen Sound der ähnlich klingt wie die Spider Valve Verstärker. In beiden Modi wird das Cab Modelling in den Ausgang gespeist, direkt in die Röhren. Wenn Sie ein POD HD Gerät verwenden, welches via L6 Link verbunden ist, müssen Sie das standard Cab Modell benutzen, welches auf dem POD HD Vorverstärker Modell ist wenn Sie es mit L6 Link an den DT Verstärker anschließen. So erhalten sie den gleichen Ton, den Sie erhalten würden, wenn Sie den DT Verstärker allein mit diesem Modell verwenden würden. Außerdem wird der Ton im „Low“ Modus auf dem DT, wenn dieser per L6 Link an einen POD HD angeschlossen ist und Sie ein Vorverstärkermodell auswählen auf dem POD, etwas unterschiedlich klingen als wenn Sie das Modell sofort auf dem DT auf Kanal A auswählen. Das kommt daher, dass wenn Sie den „Low“ Modus auf dem DT mit L6 Link verwenden der Kanal A auf dem DT mit POD Modelling immer noch nur das Voverstärker Modell mit skaliertem Master Volume verwendet während Kanal B auf dem DT Voverstärker UND Endstufe modelliert. Was ist der Unterschied zwischen DT25 und DT50? Der DT25 hat maximal 25 Watt mit seinen zwei EL84 im Gegensatz zu den EL34 im DT50 mit maximal 50 Watt. DT 50 und DT 25 Stimmungen: I – Negative Feedback Loop (NFL) eingestellt auf High. Die Kanalkontrolle verhält sich wie bei einem West Coast American Verstärker aus den 60er Jahren. Empfohlene Eisntellungen: Class AB & Pentode. II – NFL ist auf Medium eingestellt. Die Kanalkontrolle verhält sich wie ein klassischer britischer Verstärker der 60er Jahre. Empfohlene Eisntellungen: Class AB & Pentode. III – Zero Negative Feedback führt zu einem sehr dynamischen und offenen Verstärkersound. Die Kanalkontrolle wirkt wie bei einem britischen Verstärker der 60er Jahre. Empfohlene Einstellungen: Class A & Pentode oder Triode. IV – NFL auf niedriger Einstellung: Zusätzliche Tieffrequenzresonanz für den modernen High-Gain. Die Kanalkontrolle wirkt wie bei einem neueren West Coast American Verstärker der 90er Jahre. Empfohlene Einstellungen: Class AB & Pentode. Class A & Class AB Schalter: Class A: Gittervorspannung (Cathode Bias). Dynamischerer und empfindlicher. DT 50 läuft hier mit 25 Watt und DT 25 mit 10. Class AB: Fixed Bias: Mehr Headroom als in Class A. (DT50 läuft auf 50 Watt und DT25 auf 25). Pentode & Triode Schalter: Pentode: Klarerer Ton und mehr Headroom. Triode: Runderer Ton mit weniger Ausgangssignalstärke und Vintage Gefühl. L6 Link: L6 Link ist eine Digitale Audio Verbindung von Line 6. Entwickelt exklusiv für den Verbindungsaufbau zwischen POD HD und DT25 sowie DT50 Verstärkern. Verbinden Sie KEIN anderes Gerät mit XLR Anschluss mit L6 Link. Dies kann Schäden hervorrufen. Stecken Sie ein XLR Kabel (AES/EBU) in den POD HD L6 LINK Ausgang und das andere Ende in den Jack Eingang des DT Verstärkers. Die meisten XLR Kabel sollten ausreichend Performance liefern. Sie können aber auch ein digitales XLR Kabel verwenden um die beste Performance zu erreichen. Spezifikationen: DT50 Specifications DT25 Specifications Gibt es seine List der Verstärkermodelle für die Verstärker der DT Serie? Ja. Es gibt ein pdf Dokument hier. Achtung, die meisten Vorverstärkermodelle für die DT Serie können nur via MIDI erreicht werden.

Wir haben ein Dokument erstellt um Ihnen dabei zu helfen: Using MIDI to Change Amp Settings on the DT50/DT25 Amplifiers Und hier noch ein Link mit Informationen zur Fehlerbehebung bei Röhrenverstärkern: Troubleshooting Your Tube Amp Avant de lire ce document familiarisez-vous avec les termes utilisés: DT50/DT25 Terminology FAQ Est-ce qu’il y en a des presets sur les amplis DT25 et DT50 comme pour les autres amplis Line6 ? Non. Le DT25/DT50 se comporte comme un ampli traditionnel. Est-ce que les amplis DT25/DT50 sont monophoniques ? Oui, comme la plupart des amplis a lampes. Quelle modélisation d’ampli est-ce que le DT25/DT50 utilise ? Las modélisation HD la plus nouvelle de Line 6. (Comme notre nouveau POD HD) Comment est-ce que les lampes contribuent au ton de l’ampli ? Les EL34 (DT50) et EL84 (DT25) sont la source primaire pour la distorsion de l’ampli. Le signal de la guitare est amplifié à chaque étape progressive dans le circuit mais les lampes sont les premiers de distordre que la plupart des fidèles d'amplis à tubes désirent. Comment est-ce que la modélisation du DT25/DT50 contribue au ton de l’ampli ? En mode normal du DT25/DT50, la modélisation fonctionne comme le préampli. Il connecte le préampli digital avec l’ampli de puissance analogue pour créer le son d’ampli désiré. C’est différent de nos amplis Spider Valve. Pour ces amplis, nous avons modélisé tout le ampli (préampli et ampli de puissance) et dérivent ce signal à la sortie de l’ampli de puissance à lampes. En mode « low power », la modélisation digitale assumera les fonctions de l’ampli de puissance et le bouton Master Volume est modifié : Un son qui ressemble un ampli de puissance avec une haute entrée qui peut être écouté avec un volume faible du moniteur. Si vous tournez le bouton Master Volume au maximum, vous recevez des tons Spider Valve (le logiciel de modélisation du ampli et préampli utilise les lampes EL34 et EL84). En modes « Low Power » et « Normal » la modélisation est appliquée au signal de sortie envoyé à l’ampli de puissance à lampes. Si vous utilisés un POD HD connecté avec L6 Link vous devez utiliser le modèle de baffle par défaut de du modèle préampli sur le POD HD si vous utilisez une connexion L6 Link avec l’ampli DT pour recevoir le même son si vous utilisez l’ampli DT par lui-même. Finalement, l’ampli a un mode « Low Volume » s’il est connecté à un POD HD via câble L6 Link. Le ton d’un modèle préampli sélecté sur le preset POD sonnera légèrement différente si un modèle identique est sélecté sur l’ampli DT sur canal A parce que en mode Low Volume, canal A sur le DT utilise seulement le modèle préampli avec le bouton Master Volume modifié et canal B sur le DT utilise la modélisation préampli ET ampli de puissance avec le bouton Master Volume modifié. L’inclusion de la modélisation du ampli de puissance est la différence ici. Quelle est la différence entre le DT25 et le DT50 ? Le DT25 a 25 watt maximum et 2 lampes EL84 et le DT50 e 50 watts maximum avec des lampes EL34. Trouvez le DT25 ICI et le DT50 ICI. DT50/DT25 Voicings Switch : I – La configuration de la boucle de rétroaction négative est sur HIGH. Le contrôle du canal fonctionne un peut comme un ampli West Coast American des années 1960. Configurations recommandés : Class AB et Pentode. II - La configuration de la boucle de rétroaction négative est sur MEDIUM. Le contrôle du canal fonctionne comme un ampli anglais classique des années 1960. Configurations recommandés : Class AB et Pentode. III – Aucune boucle de rétroaction négative. Un ampli dynamique Configurations recommandés : Class A Pentode ou Triode IV - La configuration de la boucle de rétroaction négative est sur LOW avec une résonance de fréquence basse pour les tons modernes à haut gain. Le contrôle canal fonctionne comme un des plus nouveaux amplis West Coast American des années 90. Configurations recommandés : Class AB et Pentode. Class A & Class AB Switch: Class A: Cathode bias. Fournit le joueur avec plus de dynamique et de la sensibilité de toucher. Le DT50 fonctionne à 25 watts et le DT25 à 10 watts. Class AB : Fixed biased. Fournit plus d’hauteur de niveau maximum de l’entrée et plus de puissance que Class A. Le DT50 fonctionne à 50 watts et le DT25 à 25 watts. Pentode & Triode Switch : Pentode : Du son clair et beaucoup d’hauteur de niveau d’entrée. Triode : Son ronde avec une sensation vintage. Moins de niveau. L6 Link L6 Link est une connexion Digital Audio propriétaire de Line 6 développé pour une connexion exclusive des produits de Line 6 avec Line 6 Link. Ne connectez pas un autre appareil analogue avec un connecteur XLR standard au Line 6 Link. Dommage se produira. Connectez un câble XLR digital (AES/EBU) du POD HD jack L6 LINK directement dans le L6 LINK IN de l’ampli DT. La plupart des câbles XLR offrent des performances suffisantes mais vous pouvez utiliser un câble XLR digital pour une performance meilleure. Spécifications : Spécifications du DT50 Spécifications du DT25 Est-ce qu’il y en a une table pour les modèles des amplis DT et des POD HD ? Oui, Il y en a un document pdf. ICI.

Tous les appareils POD HD. Ils utilisent la nouvelle connexion digitale L6 Link pour contrôler les configurations an canal A. Il y en a un jack « Footswitch » à l’arrière de l’ampli pour changer entre canal A et B. Utilisez un commutateur au pied contact 2 points (mono 1/4") de type verrouillage. Est-ce qu’il y en a une sortie casque sur les DT25/DT50 ? Non. Est-ce qu’il y en a un commutateur pour changer les tubes en 6L6 ou autres types ? Non les DT25/DT50 n’ont pas une fonction pour changer le type du tube. Le DT25/DT50 a été conçu pour les tubes EL34 et EL84. Est-ce que je peux utiliser l’ampli sans impédance sur la sortie (c'est-à -dire un haut-parleur) ? Non! Vous devriez toujours utiliser un amplificateur à tube avec un haut-parleur présent. Suivez les instructions de raccordement indiqué sur l'arrière du châssis de l'amplificateur. Seront l’installation de roulettes sur mon DT50/DT25 annuler ma garantie? Non, roulettes correctement installés ne seront pas annuler la garantie.

    Triggering patches in hd500 via midi

    Hey guys. My band recently got a program called Showbuddy which will be controlling our entire lightshow and backing tracks. All of our songs have been pre-programmed with cues for the lights. This program also does midi cues as well so I thinking of using it to cue up all of my patch changes within my hd500x so I never have to touch it all show. Has anyone done with this specific program before?
  20. Hi, I just got my Helix Rack yesterday and i bought an used FCB1010 foot controller to go with it, because I needed the Rack version and can't afford the Helix Control right now. I would like to configure it to work with the Helix but having absolutely no experiences with MIDI and amp modelers, I really don't know how to do it and where to start, or even what is possible to do beside switching presets. I pretty much only find informations on how to use the Helix AS a midi controller but that's obviously not what I want to do. So, If someone could help me, and/or point me to good documentation about this, It would be greatly appreciated!

    HX Effects midi control stomp

    I’ve had the HX Effects for a while and I’ve loved it so much I decided to get the Stomp for the amp modeling. My question is can I use the FX to midi control the Stomp? Specifically I would like to be able to change between snapshots and presets on the stomp and blocks within a preset on the FX. I’m new to midi and I am totally lost. Thanks in advance for the help.
  22. 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. :)

    Can the Looper be synced?

    Can the looper be Midi controlled to start and stop recording? I've been writing some tunes that for live use I could really use a the looper on the helix but we play with a click and I've been working on midi clocking my preset for the set list and it got me thinking if I could set it up loops to match up with the click.
  24. Hi all, I'm Chris. A couple days ago - and completely on a whim - I put in an offer on an HX Stomp and won it for a price I didn't expect. After a weekend spent searching for answers on how to make it work for my rig, I give up and this is my first post. I have a couple amplifiers and I've been looking for somewhat of an "all in one" pedalboard solution for a while. My main amp is a Mesa Triple Crown 50, which (as I'm sure many of you are aware) has MIDI channel switching capabilities, an FX loop, all that jazz. I've been looking at replacing a good chunk of my pedal board (SA Nemesis Delay, Boss DC-2w, Walrus Audio Lilian Phaser, EHX Pitch Fork, Wampler Ego Comp) for a while and don't doubt the HX series, on a high level, has what it takes to do the job. I intend on fully utilizing the 4-cable method to make the most of it. Here's my dilemma. The TC-50 is a three-channel amplifier and has MIDI control over channel switching, FX loop, reverb and solo boosts. In a perfect world, I would have access to all three channels and solo boost in various combinations along with various effects from the HX. Ideally, I'd be able to access 6-8 presets encompassing channel switching/effects combinations readily. I was sold on the HX Effects (due in part to the additional loop to add a fuzz/drive/gate pedal on top) until I read about latency when using MIDI to switch amp settings. The snapshot workaround isn't something that'd work for me when limited to 4 per preset. So, enter the need for a MIDI controller. I've looked at them all at this point, from Disaster Area to BOSS to Morningstar. It seems as though the Morningstar MC6 MKII is the gold standard. Here's the big question - can I use an external MIDI controller to switch amplifier channels while simultaneously pulling up different effects combinations on the HX Stomp/Effects without lag/latency issues? And, as an alternative, would there be any benefits to adding a Boss ES-8, if for nothing else, to be able to switch amplifier channels while sorting effects placement, if I added an overdrive/boost/etc pedal to the mix? Would an HX Effects/Morningstar combo make more sense for that? Agh! Thanks in advance -- I should also note that there's a decent chance I'm overthinking this. :)
  25. Hello all, This is my first post in the community, and I'm wondering where I can learn how to automate my Helix Rack to properly and effectively change presets as well as manipulate the values of individual chain loaded effects. Here is what I'm looking to accomplish with Helix (for live use) and as of right now I know nothing of where to start: I'm running my show with Ableton live 9 lite. I want to use MIDI tracks (envelope automation) in Ableton to change my patches throughout the songs and set, as well as automate the toggling the on/off of stompboxes and delay/reverb swells & ramp-ups of the mix percentage within each patch. All I know is that I need to assign the parameters in which I want to control to the open MIDI CC channels in Helix, but I do not know how to technically achieve this the most effective and proper way. Any input or direction to reading materials on this subject is greatly appreciated. Like i said, I know nothing about this process. Thanks!
