    Question about MIDI signals

    Sometime ago I watched a video on Periphery's live set rig and I learned that they used a DAW to send MIDI signals to their Axe-Fx to switch patches during their performance. I was curious if the Helix is capable of this and if there is a good tutorial to set it up.
  2. There are a lot of promotional videos from Line6, and they all sound much better than any preset I created with my new Helix. Jack Thammarat e. g. shows how to create a lead tone for Helix: I reproduced everything like shown in this video, I also used an Fender Stratocaster – but my patch sounds not as good as in the video. Much less brilliant and not as much like an tube amp in this video. Well, Jack Thammarat wrote he recorded the sound directly via USB … I can't believe it. Are there any tricks to get my guitar and Helix sound better? Preamps? Post production? Other things? Has anyone any suggestions? Ulf
  3. I picked up a Helix a couple days ago and am loving it. Been using a Kemper for a while but that will more than likely be sold soon. One glitch I am running into that I can't find on the forum... There is a noticeable drop out when I change patches. Has this been identified by anyone else yet ? I updated to the latest firmware but am still getting the delay. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    Problems with Hd500

    Hi, Was wondering whether anyone has had any problems with sound dropping out while using a pod hd500? Sometimes,and intermittently, I will be playing and the volume just disappears. If I switch patch it comes back but on a few occasions it hasn't. I thought it was to do with the exp pedal at first so I removed this from the signal chain but it is still happening. It's really annoying as it's not all the time and I can't tell when or why it's happening. I only use this pedal while onstage (no amp) so when it goes I'm left looking like a fool. I found turning it off and on again works but I can't be doing this every night. Any ideas would be greatly received. Cheers

    Helix dual path setup

    This info will probably be 101 type stuff for a lot of regulars on this forum in particular, but I had gotten some questions on my other patch videos about dual paths and stereo setups. So I made a video building a patch showing how to do this. If anyone has any questions about setting up dual paths this might be helpful.

    Metallica through the ages with Helix

    I've been working on Metallica tones for their first five albums. The goal was to get as accurate as possible. Here's where I ended up! The video quality varies quite a bit but all the guitar playing is recorded direct to the computer via USB with no mixing or any kind of extra processing added. It's straight Helix. Seek & Destroy for that gnarly, old-school metal Kill 'Em All tone Fade To Black with Hetfield's revamped and modded Marshall tone
  8. Ive recently recieved a pod xt live as a gift and after hours of research cant seem to find anything about downloading patches using windows 10. I know that you need to use line 6 edit to save and move patches to the pod but the line 6 software page says that line 6 edit is not available for windows 10. So is there any possible for me to download custom tones to my pod xt live with windows 10?
  9. Hello all, I don't usually frequent gear forums so I apologise if my forum etiquette is sub standard. I've been really excited about the Helix since the reveal of the device. I've been waiting for you guys to drop a new modern unit since the HD500x. So, I've been nurturing use of a Pod XT for many years now and it has served my playing routine greatly since purchase. No to mention that I've had very little problems with the unit. I hit my tone limit a long time ago. I need more control over the signal chain to be able to really suss my guitar tone out. I'm seriously tempted to take the plunge on the Helix and have the funds to do so. I have my doubts though, especially considering it is such a great deal of money to drop on a pedal. Could I trouble some knowledgable users with some questions? 1) Line 6 edit I think I saw that Line 6 released a "Gear Box" Win/mac user interface for the Helix unit. How is this coming along, is it good quality? I can't find any screen shots at all. Nobody is hailing it as god's gift, if it has been released. I understand the larger display and functionality might completely over-rule the use of something like this. I'm curious as to it's current state of play. 2) Patch latency This is something that's been raised a few times on here. I understand the nature of loading process for patches. As I've dealt with the XT live, I do understand THIS IS modelling. With the XT, there was a noticeable delay in switching patches. It wasn't terrible but it was noticeable. I'd argue it is literally the longest patch latency I'd be willing to put up with. Can anyone clarify if it is an improvement? Some have said the time it takes to load a patch is directly related to the amount of "blocks" you have in your patches. I'm not looking for multiple cabs and amps per patch. The XT had Comp, Gate, EQ, Amp Sim, Cab, Delay, Mod, ​Reverb. Considering that as a base line. What sort of latency are we looking at as standard? Better or worse? Painfully delayed? 3) Further talking about patches delays. Some have suggested loading everything into one patch and using that? I saw Glen Delaune's, 3 channel amp patch and I wasn't THAT sold on the "method". Surely you can run into instances where both, your clean channel is running and your boost is on? Surely your tone is going to more of a compromise instead of what you actually want to here? 4) Do custom IR's perform better or worse re: quality and patch latency? 5) Spreading blocks over to "Both CPU processors"? How is this actually done? Do you run the amp and cab on a separate line with links between. How effective is this reduction? 6) Direct into a Tube Amp I use a 2x12 Fender Hot Rod Deville. Can anyone elaborate as to how will this pedal plays with standard Tube Amps. I don't need a processed video from Chappers, I've seen it already. You know what I mean. My query is the ability to sculp the sound and fix mushyness. Sustain at volume, deliberate feedback etc. 7) Some people in other posts have suggested using 8 Template <02c ... XXXXX as a base line for your tones, to avoid latency problems. I don't own one yet, so I can't exactly investigate as to what these patch templates have to offer. Can anyone elaborate as to what these templates have to offer and how they work? I know there's a lot going on above regarding my questions. If you'd be so kind as to weigh in where possible, I'm sure others will review this thread to help put minds at ease. Please be as honest, clear and descriptive as possible I know it's a pain... although they're not "Million dollar" questions, they are the "Thousand dollar" questions that I would really appreciate clear answers for. I really appreciete you taking the time to review this thread.
  10. New to Pocket Pod but not to editors. Have several Digitech ones with their editors on pc. Using Win10 and pod works fine and updates through Monkey so all seems connected correct. Good tones and are able to change, download, save, upload from library etc. However, the navigation seems needlessly convoluted and difficult, Not too difficult through the editor but almost impossible in the pod window. Areas are seen that aren't addressed in the editor like banks. And what is "Air" in the editor knobs???? I add a new set and I don't see it in the editor???? It saves and restores but does not show in editor except under one of the other labels like band, pod or user. Just does not seem a logical connection between navigation in the pod and in the editor.
  11. hello guys I'd like to know what is the best custom tone in your opinion. I dont want to spend a lot of time searching for good ones (evaluating etc). I know that it can sound horrible with my gear, but I could use it to learn or test different configurations/combinations. My patches are ok, I just need to have new insights.... examples with different amps would be nice, mostly Mesa boogie...or high gain for podhd 500 or 500x thanks
  12. Hi all, I've just bought Firehawk FX. I'm using it with Peavey Classic 30 in the 4CM setup. I've read all about the dreaded patch change latency problem but decided to give it a try instead. The latency of changing patches is ok for my purpose. It could be better but all in all my Peavey Classic 30 has a similar latency while switching between channels. BUT Everything is nice and ok unless I don't use the preamp of my Peavey in the effect loop. If that is the case the latency of patch switching reaches 1 second or more. The sound cuts and then slowly arises from zero. To give it simple: Guitar -> FX -> Send RCV in Peavey ----------- Patch Switching OK Guitar -> FX -> 4CM -------------------------------- Patch Switching with 1 second latency (sound arrising) Can it be a matter of the preamp of my Peavey that needs to somehow re-init if getting signal from INPUT or is it a problem of the Firehawk ? Please help, I don't know whether to return the unit because using it like this is impossible ... :/
  13. I'm loving the tones I've found on line and created on my Firehawk. The Bluetooth function and cloud search are priceless. Is there a way to print the current settings from the unit, other than create a separate Excel spreadsheet or Word doc? As I learn the capabilities, I'm changing tones so often it would be obsolete in 2 days. I'd sure like to have that list in front of me as I learn the patch locations.

    Setlists, Banks, And Abcd Strategies

    I originally planned on using setlists for different, um, sets. And then I’d select different banks for different songs, 16 banks is plenty for my sets. Then, within a song, a can select ABCD patches for different parts of the song – clean, crunch, lead, and maybe a high-gain lead or something. Then I also have FX 1, 2, 3 & 4 when I need something special for each of the 4 ABCD sounds. Sounds like a plan. I decided to save one of the 1,2,3,4 slots by relying on amp models for my distortion, like selecting between Soldano clean, crunch, and high gain. That way, I select ABCD for the type of distortion and use 1234 for delay, chorus, tremolo, and some other effect (compression, noise gate, reverb are always on – no need for a 1234 switch on those). The problem I’m finding is it takes 15msec for a new ABCD patch to load in (I measured it). This is too long. I can’t always anticipate the timing to punch it in, or I don’t have that much time. The audio is muted during this 15msec and you hear it when I switch between, say, clean rhythm to scorching lead. So, now I’m thinking about going back to 1-8 FX buttons and just bank selecting between songs. But then I’m stuck with a single amp model, which is workable I suppose by using more of the FX buttons to switch in different distortion FX, but not as flexible. So my question for the group is: what is your strategy in using setlists, banks, ABCD patches, and 1234 switches. How do you use them? Are you stuck with a single amp model for a given song? How do you overcome the 15msec audio mute when switching ABCD patches? When do you use ABCD patches and when do you use 1234 FX switches? Thanks for any insight you can provide me.

    Help before I decide to send it back!

    So I was one of the fortunate ones to get a Helix as soon as it came out. The UI and the way to really get under the hood to make patches was a bit over my head, but out of the gate I had some pretty great sounding tones. Then came a bad software update and some glitches and my unit was replaced - Kudos to Line 6 for incredible customer service. Here's the problem, and maybe someone here can help me because I am at the point of sending this thing right back to Sweetwater. My original unit sounded great. Patches sounded big and real. On my new one, EVERYTHING sounds like the first Zoom multi Fx pedal I ever owned. Everything except the cleans sound super fizzy and plastic. I've tried rolling off highs, changing mics and placement, but nothing is working. I've used it on a few gigs and it's just awful. Any advice? Thanks

    Looper presets?

    Hi guys! I'm sure this question has been answered before but i searched and searched and couldn't find any info on it. I'm wanting to have different loops saved into different patches. So when you go to a patch, a patch-specific loop plays. I have no idea if this is possible or not but I knew this would be the best place to ask. Thanks!
  17. I think it would very useful if users of the Firehawk had the option to assign pre-programmed tones to the top row of foot-switches FS1 – FS5. Effectively giving users 9 pre-set patches per bank. I guess this would mean losing the ability to turn stomps on and off on banks programmed in this way. Perhaps this could be an option per bank? So you either have, 4 patches with stomps on a bank… OR … 9 pre-set patches on a bank. To me it seems a relatively simple idea that could hopefully be included in a firmware update? I have submitted this on ideascale. So, if like me, you would find this a HUGE leap forward in the usability of this Multi-FX System, please VOTE HERE - http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/FIREHAWK-assign-pre-programmed-patches-to-FS1-FS5/780844-23508 Cheers Mike :)

    Amplifi Remote Tone star ratings?

    I bought my mate's FX100 last week and have been very happy with it so far. I've created some tones and shared them to the Amplifi Remote cloud from the app. After I searched some genres in the tone search, I noticed some patches have half a white-colored star next to them, however I haven't been able to work out how to rate the patches myself. Some of the patches with these half stars are terrible and I'd like to reduce their rating if possible, to help other people avoid them (would also like to promote a couple which I've been really impressed with). How do you rate other people's patches? Or if can't, how do these star ratings (well, all I've seen so far is half-stars...) work?

    finding patches

    Other than the customtone area on this site, is there any other good place to find patches? Preferably a large pack of them? I read somewhere there are places you can find thousands of patches. Thanks!
  20. Hi There! I have a POD HD PRO, but i´m thinking to seell it to buy the new POD HD PRO X, to get more versatility in the patches (signal chain prosessing). My question is: Is it possible to transfer all i have in the HD PRO through the Line6 edit, the setlists and patches,etc.. to the PRO X with no problems and changes in the sounds i´ve made ? Thank you

    Trying to create a new tone

    First time messing with the HD Edit software, trying to create a patch with a harmonizer. But I want the harmony to be a half step, to achieve an affect similar to what you would hear in a Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza song. I assume the effect I would use would be the frequency shifter, but how would I set it to get a half step harmony?

    how to use downloaded patches

    Hi, I'm new to the pod hd500. Ive been going thru the manual, searching online and vids on youtube but i'm still not quite clear as to how to transfer patches that I've downloaded from here. When I bought my hd500, the first things that I did was download the hd500 Edit and the line 6 monkey. I updated the firmware and so on... I then started looking for patches thru the website here and download a few into a folder I created. When I plugged in hd500 to my pc and opened the hd500 edit software I was not able to find where these patches were and how to use and save them to the unit. Can anybody help with this? thanks in advance!

    Hd500x Presets

    I finally got my HD500X and it is amazing. This may not be the problem but when i turn on the POD i see total 16 factory presets. But after 16D it again goes back to 1A. I don't want to change the factory presets but need to make something new in user presets. How can I go to user presets?
  24. Hi, I don't know if it's a bug coming from POD HD Edit or the hardware unit itself but it's VERY annoying. I already lost some custom presets because of it. What's happening is when I'm tweaking then saving my presets on the POD or POD HD Edit, the preset is saved in the location I specified (let's say setlist 3, 12B) but it's also sometime duplicated and saved in another setlist (setlist 2 for ex, 12B) erasing whatever preset was populating the 12B space. Unfortunately I can't replicate this issue as it seems to happen randomly. The duplicate always saves in the same preset spot as the original (for ex. 14C) but in a different setlist. But it's happening quite often to be VERY annoying and frustrating, especially when you discover a duplicate of your Metallica preset in your Pop Rock setlist, erasing the Santana preset you have been tweaking to perfection for months... Oddly I could only find one thread mentioning this exact same issue: http://line6.com/supportarchivenew/thread/91585 Maybe it's the way we both use POD HD Edit or the POD. The POD factory setlists are loaded, leaving me with 3 empty setlists I populated and are now almost full. My setlists are organized as follow: 1/ Metal 2/ Pop Rock Acoustic 3/ Ambient FX that's why it's easy for me to spot a preset that doesn't belong to one or other setlist. To save a patch I either use the SAVE button on the POD or send it from POD HD Edit to the POD. I sometime reorganize my setlists moving patches all over the place, and I'm always very careful to what I do so when there's a duplicate, it's not user error. The only workaround I found (which is actually not really a workaround) is to save my preset bundle before editing, and then again in another file after editing so I can compare both bundles preset after preset and see the changes. Very annoying once again, but at least this way I'm not losing any patch. This really needs to get fixed.
  25. This is a little hard to explain because I'm not a native speaker, but I'll do my best. When I have my PodHD500x in the ABCD (FS) mode I can change between the 4 patches of the bank. What is a problem for me is that when I'm in a patch and I edit it using the FS1-4 switches, and change to other one, and then I return to the first patch, it would go back to the original settings. Is there a way in which I can change between patches in ABCD mode and they don't return to original settings if I edit them with the FS1-4 buttons? I've seen that this same thing does happen when I have the pod connected to the pc editing mode with the software. But it doesn't work when is not connected. If this could be posible, i would be so grateful. I hope I make myself understand. Thanks for any help you could give. Have an awesome day.
