Hello Friends! This is not your typical "amp fizz" "squirrels" "Ghost in the machine" thread! I suspect there are several things at play here. First, the backstory. I've been having "fizz" troubles with my Helix for months, at their worst they result in massive volume dumps during live performances thru my (Matrix GT800) live rig. BUT recently its almost like they decay over time... I wouldn't be starting this topic if not for the fact that for the last 8 hours STRAIGHT it sounded amazing. Low end was tight, everything sounded amazing. I play through my headphone exclusively but when the fizz gets bad I make sure to diagnose, record it thru the USB, track it out the 1/4" in ouputs and even the sends. BUT THEN I opted to try to restore some old Factory Presets by loading old Firmware into the Helix. Well, I jumped to 3.01 and the fizz came back and hasn't left yet. I'm on my second round loading the firmware through the Helix from 3.01 -> 3.11 Hoping it helps. Attached are 3 stock Helix presets, not affected at all beyond making the impedance 1M. THEY CAN'T POSSIBLY BE THIS BAD YOU GUYS WHATS GOING ON. Jazz Rivet - 04A.mp3 WOrks just fine - 09A.mp3 SadSad - 01D.mp3
When I Play high notes on the high e- string at 20th fret and higher, there is an audible "phasing" while bending the string slowly. Today (last day for the demo) I have recorded a small track where you can hear what I mean. It's not depending on the DAW settings of the bitrate. Changing from 96 kHz to 48 kHz didn't Change anything. The attached file was recorded in 24 bit / 96 kHz with Reaper 64 bit on Windows 10. Amp: Plexi bright channel Distortion: Tubescreamer Impulse respose of a Marshall 1960 Lead Cab. (Helix Cab Sim as an alternative didn't change anything) Input noisegate on (turning it off didn't help) May be that' s an issue with the PC or audio interface (Steinberg U22 mark II)? Does anybody hear something like that with his own Helix Native? In a view month (when I have the money) I plan to test end eventually buy a Helix Rack. Because of the different hardware I think (and hope) that the aliasing issue won't be there (I will test). The Helix Native I would then buy for the discounted price and just for practice at home (Helix Rack with the band). Any ideas? helix_native_high_e_fret_22.wav
