  1. I'm looking at buying a StageScape and see that it would require powered PA speakers. I have a nice set of unpowered PA speakers and wondered if I could put use an amplifier inline between the mixer and the speakers? If so, any amplifier suggestions? Nothing too extravagant. Thanks!
  2. Hey Guys, How do you power your Line 6 Helix modeler for Live use with a cabinet ? What is the best solution you've came across while doing your research ? Please share your experience and your perfect setup solution to make the Helix sound has legit as possible. (Amp feel and response, amp in the room feel etc.) So far I've tried many possibilities : - Tube amp Fx loop (power amp in) - Powered monitor such as EV ELX 112P - Line 6 Powercab + - Boss Waza tube expander to power a passive guitar cab with classic celestion speakers. Cheers,
  3. Hello all. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions you all gave me last year. I’ve been slowly modifying, rearranging, and upgrading my equipment since we last posted. I now have a zoom L-12 Livetrack mixer/recorder and I love it. I am now ready to buy some speakers and am still debating which ones to get. Your input will be appreciated. To refresh you on my situation, I am slowly building a home studio. Its purpose is primarily just for fun jamming with my friends. The studio is in my converted living room and is roughly 20 feet square. Carpeted. The helix, computer, and other instruments are plugged into the mixer. I now need a final output. Most of you have suggested a pair of studio monitors, others have suggested PA speakers. The jam sessions are pretty casual, so the players are not going to wear headphones unless we ever decide to make a recording for public consumption, which is unlikely. In my dreams we might want to do a talent show at church but realistically that is probably also unlikely. So, help me decide: Yamaha HS8 studio monitors Yamaha DBR 12 PA speakers EV ZLX 12 PA speakers or something else? Thanks
  4. I can only get a great sound from my Helix LT when using studio headphones. It is not the patches as I have downloaded patches and used the factory presets, but no matter what sound output I select the sound is never as good as my headphones. To date I have tried: Guitar amps:Marshall DSL20 and Blackstar HT5, using various cabinets and going through both the power amp as well as bypassing it. This gave a booming, flat sound. Monitors: KRK RP3: This came closest as it was warm but very contained. An Alto powered speaker: This was very poor. It sounded exactly like it is, a PA speaker. Creative Labs active speakers for use with a computer: These gave a great sound but the sound was breaking up. I am now considering whether to try a Headrush FRFR, Yamaha HS8 monitors or just more powerful active speakers even though they do not provide a flat response. Is anybody else having these problems and found a solution?
  5. I only use my Helix at home but I am disappointed at the sound going through my power am + cab, and my KRK RP5s are a little disappointing too, especially on the power level. Anybody any recommendations? I want a good stereo sound.
  6. I've been playing my new Helix through headphones and my Marshall DSL 100 with 1960 cab. I just can't get this thing to sound good through the Marshall. Based on this forum, it sounds like sand alone speakers is what I need as opposed to using an amp cab. This is for home use only. But my home set up is a fairly large room and I like playing loud when no one's home. I assume I need to skip powered monitors and go for bigger speakers. I can afford a single Line 6 L2T or dual PA speakers (Say a pair of Alto 212's). What do you guys recommend between a single L2T versus 2 PA speakers? Thank you very much! Bryan
  7. I know by default when you plug in an external cabinet the speakers in the head switch off. Is there any supported method of allowing the built-in speakers to continue working even when connected to a cabinet? I'm sure I'm not the first idiot to think of this, but I'd like to use the head as a close monitor, with a cabinet pointed at FOH.
  8. Hello, I have been using Helix for 7-8 months and have listened to myself primarily through headphones. I have also been recording stuff using Helix. Now I want to start using it in studios and gigs and I am unsure whether to plug in Helix directly into speakers or to go into the guitar amp input? I also don't know how does this affect the presets I've been using. My presets all use a combo amp + cab block, which I guess I should change if I actually use a real amp? Thanks in advance :)

    Helix

    Just looking for recommendations on what is a good speaker to plug directly into with the helix for example signal chain guitar into Helix direct into powered speaker. Whether it be for a small gig or just practicing at home. Thanks
  10. Hey everyone, Firstly, thanks for spending some of your time to give me a bit of help. I've recently moved country, and a friend gave me some speakers as a house warming gift. Problem is, they only have a single auxiliary input, and my UX1 has stereo outputs (quarter inch). WIth my previous speakers back in the U.K., it was simple. I had a cable which connected from the stereo 1/4 inch outputs, to stereo RCA, which I just plugged into the speaker set directly. No problems - stereo to stereo. Now I have bought an adapter to mix the stereo 1/4 inch down into a single auxiliary cable. The problem is, I think I am missing audio this way. Namely, when I test the configuration in windows sound (i.e. playback devices > line 6 UX1) and click to test the speakers, it plays the test sound for the left speaker, but not for the right speaker. However, if I take my aux cable, plug it directly into my computers port, and test, it will play the test sound through both speakers. I don't get why mixing down the stereo to an auxiliary with the UX1 causes only one speaker to work, because surely my computer is mixing the stereo into a single auxilary cable, yet it is still coming out of both speakers. Hope this makes sense. Is there any work around? Or does a UX1 just always require you to keep a stereo to stereo configuration? And buy speaker hardware which has a stereo input option? Cheers everyone. :D Joe.
  11. Hello guys, Please advise: I've ordered Amplifi TT and it should be arriving soon. Now I'm wondering what else I might need: The first question is: will it work as audio interface to output audio to speakers when connected to MacBook via usb? And the second question is: I'm about to buy M-Audio BX8 D2 speakers that as far as I understand have balanced xlr and abalancned/unbalanced 1/4" inputs. So what are my best options to connect these speakers to Amplifi tt? Amplifi manual does not state if 1/4 inch main outs are balanced. I would presume they are, but just to be sure what cables to buy. Thank you for your help.

    Power amp for Helix

    I currently have no experience with setting up fx processors for live/rehearsal use through a guitar cabinet, but I am thinking about obtaining a Helix (maybe Axe Fx if I'm patient enough) to add a digital rack setup on top of my current tube amp/cab/pedals setup. Just to have the best of both worlds. I want to stick to a solid state power amp, but do I go Rocktron Velocity 300 or Matrix GT800FX/GT1000FX? I obviously want to maximize my sound in terms of quality, but also in terms of volume without blowing my speakers or being too quiet. I'm not sure how wattage in a sold state amp affects this, and I'd like to go Matrix, but only if they don't destroy these cabs with one small or bad turn of a knob because of their high output capabilities -- 400w/channel or 800w bridged for example -- into a 280w Mesa 4x12 (live/rehearsal) or 120w Orange 2x12 (home). But I can't afford to have the 300w Rocktron be too quiet for a live or rehearsal situation even if it does suffice for at-home use. Bottom line: Which power amp should I get and how would I avoid damage? I see people using the Matrix's all the time with cab setups but how do they not blow their cabs? Just keep the Matrix turned down low all the time? Is it an impedance thing? Side note: The Orange also only has a 16 ohm option so without rewiring how would that work, if it can at all since I believe these amps do 8 ohms? I know there's other options for speaker setups but I'm asking specifically about guitar cabinets... for now. I play heavy music. Much appreciated.
  13. I just installed Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan on my MacBook Air. I waited a while to install this specifically because the Line 6 drivers are always bad early on. Sure enough, I've updated my drivers and now when I output from my Toneport UX2 using the analog outs into my monitors or through my headphones there's a constant crackling noise coming out. Please help me fix this.
  14. Hello everyone, First time poster. I have an Orange dark terror amp head that I use with a rockcrusher recording load box/attenuator/cabinet emulator to connect to the Helix. I've just moved from a flat with three floors of neighbours above me to a house with a spacious attic room that has become my home studio. I was operating a silent recording setup in the flat but I now want to start using some form of speaker. I'm leaning towards a FRFR speaker (specifically this http://www.andertons.co.uk/speaker-cabinets/pid35447/cid690/laney-iron-heart-irtx-powered-guitar-expansion-cab.asp ) because I figure I might be able to use it with my roland TD30k drumkit as well (although that isn't a priority.) I have enough to buy one speaker but if needed I may invest in two at some point in the future. I mainly want to know whether it's possible to generate feedback from the helix amp and cab models and/or routing the orange head and rockcrusher through the Helix and using a FRFR speaker. I ask because I saw this video of a Helix and cabinet demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IuX5L8DjtM. The guy definitely seems to be getting some feedback together and having been recording silently for the last 3 years I want to start squealing and howling again. I have two questions as I've never used a FRFR speaker before. I connect the rockcrusher to the helix and use the orange head as an insert block separate from any Helix amp and cab models and FX, sometimes in a mono serial routing and sometimes in a stereo parallel routing as two different amp and cab emulations panned left and right, and sent from the XLR outs direct to my mixer. As such having the ability to connect a stereo signal to the FRFR speaker is important to me but not necessarily outputting a stereo image to my ears (if that makes sense) ie a left and right FRFR speaker. So could I send a stereo signal from the Helix 1/4 inch outs to the stereo FX loop on the FRFR? I don't forsee using the FRFR in any part of the recording as yet (mainly due to not quite understanding how or why I would in preferance to the way I record at the moment eg using the two Helix XLR outs to connect to two channels on my mixer) and just using the speaker for monitoring the helix. Does that mean I have to complete the FX loop ie send a stereo signal back to the helix from the FRFR? I mean as I understand it feedback is the phenomenon of soundwaves from the speaker vibrating the guitar strings and being picked up by the guitar pickups, generating noise through the amp and manifesting as soundwaves from the speaker and then repeating that sequence over and over. 2nd question: is it physically possible to generate feedback using a FRFR speaker and will it damage any of the components in my theoritical rig of guitar > Helix > Orange amp > Rockcrusher > Helix > FRFR speaker and then using the Helix XLR outs to send to my mixer. Apologies if any of these questions seem simple or strange.
  15. Hi everyone i have a music room that is 10x12 and want to buy some speakers to run my helix in stereo. I am thinking of QSC K8's but want ask advice from all of you. i am not going to play out but am looking for the best sound i can get in my room. thanks
  16. Hi everyone - Quick question....Can I connect a passive bass (extension) 2x10 8ohm cab to my Studio110 Direct Out connection without harm? Appreciate there's no further power to be obtained...interested whether there's an improvement in overall sound i.e. from 1 x 10 to 3 x10. Cheers...MIKE B
  17. How do I get my sound to come out of my computer speakers? I have my POD HD500 plugged in to my computer through USB and through one of the outputs (one end is an instrument cable for the pod, and the other end is a headphone/aux cable for the computer). I've tried messing with the sound settings on my computer, but I don't hear anything when I play. I've seen this done before, so I know it's possible. I don't even think I need a USB for it, but I've tried it without one as well. Please help.
  18. I'm not able to get any sound when I'm playing from my computer speakers anymore. I have a UX2 hooked up directly to the computer via USB and the electric guitar plugged in to the normal instrument input. The meters are moving on the UX2 when I'm playing and the Digital Audio Interface under the recording tab on my sound settings for the UX2 shows sound being registered but nothing is being registered under the playback tab for the speakers. I haven't played in a while and had to update all the drivers cause POD Farm 2 says it wasn't authorized but the license manager said it was so after updating drivers and etc. the problem was fixed. After updating everything the problem with the sound came up, yet I've set up everything the way it was before. I've looked up a few solutions online like checking under the mixer tab on pod farm if it is set to instrument, making sure the knobs are turned up, switching USB ports, etc. I'm kinda all out of ideas on what could be the problem.
  19. Still a little confused about something. Is the proper way to use this directly to speakers or directly to an amp? Which is going to sound better? Won't my amp affect the sound, considering this thing models other amps? Thanks!
  20. I just bought a Studio GX and have it set up like most mention by unplugging my computers speakers and plugging them into the GX and it works great BUT I have a question. IF I don't want to use the GX as an external sound card at "all times" and instead only want to use the GX when using Pod farm and recording software can I leave the computer's speakers plugged in to the computer's sound card and plug in a set of "powered Personal monitor" speakers that I have on hand into the Studio GX and leave it plugged in all the time? IDs there ANY problem with doing this IF it will even work? I just don't want to use the GX as the sound card for everything ALL the time NOR do I want to be plugging AND unplugging stuff all the time.............
  21. Hi guys, just got a HD500 and was wondering how to set it up so I can listen through my PC while I'm recording. I'm going to be using Reaper and have a vista PC. Is It possible and if it is could you guys help me with settings etc. Many thanks.
  22. I am currently attempting to properly connect my Edirol MA10D Powered Speaker Monitors to my Line 6 UX2 toneport. For now I have it hooked up from the headphone jack of the UX2 device (1/8 inch cable with 1/4 adapter), to the line inputs behind the speaker monitor (other end of cable splits into left and right RCA jacks seen in photo: http://www.sweetwater.com/images/closeup/750-ma10d_img_rear.jpg). The problem is I am concerned this is not the optimal way to connect my speakers. I am also concerned this will cause latency when recording and with playback. I tried plugging the cable into one of the "Analog outputs" found on the back of the UX2, but the sound quality isn't nearly as good and the volume is not as loud. What is the correct way to connect my make/model speakers to the Line6 US2 toneport? Maybe go from left and right RCA line inputs to both Analog outputs??? Thank you.
  23. I have been playing through the POD X3 via a nice set of Bose noise-cancelling headphones for a long while now as I've lived in apartments for the last few years. That will no longer be an issue soon and I was hoping somebody could provide some advice on output alternatives (i.e., speakers, amps, etc.). I feel like this topic has been covered to death, except that I couldn't find any great posts or advice that seemed to answer my exact question. I'm also relatively new to the world of amplification so please excuse my lack of understanding. I play solely as a hobby, not in a band and not live. My typical day of playing would involve a lot of backing tracks at home. I play a couple Strats and a nice PRS. As far as music, I'm a huge David Gilmour fan, but I would be playing anything from Clapton to the Chili Peppers. I previously played a POD 2.0 through a low-end (literally bottom end) Marshall half stack. I was always really disappointed with the tone, especially compared to how great the POD sounded through a nice set of headphones. I knew a guy a while ago who played the original POD through a PA system and I was astonished at how great it sounded (he turned me onto the POD in the first place). So, basically, I am looking to replicate as much as possible how great the POD sounds through a pair of headphones. That probably isn't very descriptive, but I believe (just a guess) that the headphones are not processing the sound as much as other output alternatives would. I recall reading the instructions with the Marshall half stack on how best to set it up with the POD and I felt like I was hearing the POD tones very much modified when they were coming through the amp. Granted, the Marshall was a terrible, terrible piece of equipment. What would be my best option for "outputting" the POD's tones with as little modification as possible while retaining some power? In other words, taking the tones I would hear through a nice pair of headphones and producing those through some kind of speaker? Would a PA system be my best bet? If so, anything specific I should look for or avoid? I've read elsewhere that not all PA systems would be appropriate for this kind of thing. Any specific gear you could mention that would be a good example? Thanks in advance for any replies. As I said at the top, apologize if this is the 1000th time you've come across this question but it's an answer I've been looking for for a while. Thanks.
  24. Hello guys, I own a Line6 POD HD300. I always play at home, at bedroom levels using my headphones connected at the phones input of the POD. Now, I would like to use some speakers in order to share my sound with others who are in the same room. Unfortunately, I only have headphones... no amp and no speakers... that being said, I think it's time to buy some speakers. I see that the POD HD300 has 2 options: XLR for balanced 1/4 jacks for unbalanced What should I buy? Which is better? Please note, I have no other equipment (no PA, no DI) and I am not going serious about spending a lot of money. All I want is to play guitar in my room without headphones, simple as that. My budget is 200 Euro. I did some research and I found these: Neusonik NE05 - 139 Euro ESI nEar05 - 175 Euro many people recommend KRK RP5 Rokit G3, but they are quite expensive for me. Should I buy just one single KRK RP5 RoKit G3 or MONO doesn't worth it? Thank you in advance for your time and suggestions Panos
  25. Hi, I appreciate anyone who takes time to answer as I am a complete newb. To be totally honest, I don't even know that I'm posting in the right subforum. I have a Line 6 GX which I use to plug into the computer and play guitar into my laptop. It works beautifully except that I can't hear myself playing without headphones. I've been looking all over but can't figure out a way to play directly into my laptop's built in speakers. Is it possible? If not, is it possible to buy separate speakers that can plug into the headphone slot?
