Yesterday I upgraded my Helix to the 2.80 firmware and had no issues with the update process. Spent some time playing with the new amps (love them) and created a few new patches. Today, I went through my setlist/patches for tomorrows set. I noticed two things when I did this: 1) Half of my patches would not change snapshots properly. I was initially using HXEdit and it was giving me an error message. So I tried the actual switches on the Helix - I would push a switch to change snapshots and nothing would happen. The ring would stay lit around the snap that was active when the patch was loaded no matter which snap I selected and the sound did not change. I tried to sent snap change commands via cc69 but this too failed. In one of my patches, the sound WOULD change, but the snap ring would not change. 2) The patch volume for every patch I tried was significantly quieter. I use meters to make sure all of my patches are consistent. So I was shocked to see that the levels were approximately HALF of what I am used to seeing. I did not take the time to determine what this difference equated to in terms of decibels, but it was half of the value I set my patches to on the meter. I know that there have been some users reporting volume fluctuations when using Jason Sadites' LA Comp at the end of their signal chain, but I am not using that technique. Since I have a gig tomorrow and needed to practice I immediately stopped and rolled my firmware back to 2.7. Anyone else experiencing these issues?
justinlf84 posted a topic in HelixWhen 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?
I realize it's a fair ways off to start nitpicking... but pick I shall! When I saw the LaGrange was based on a Tweed Deluxe, I started doing some poking around as to how the LaGrange might differ from the Tweed Deluxe in this patch. While researching, I realized that the notes seem to refer to something that doesn't exist. The 5C3 circuit was used until sometime in 1954, and in 1958 the circuit being used was the 5E3. While there are some that would argue, "C'mon... it's a tweed deluxe... C, E, K, Z, it's going to be pretty much the same", it sounds like there's a noticeable difference between them - more low end, additional gain stage - which is why the 5E3 is so coveted.
