  1. So I decided I need to make a external pedal for the Helix so I can change settings or enable effects without being right in front of the Helix. Needed for bigger stages or stages with banks. Parts I used for this project 10k ohm linear potentiometer 10k ohm resistor 3PDT Switch Mini MTS-102 SPDT ON-ON switch Adafruit Perma-Proto Quarter-sized Breadboard Boss TU-2 cassis Jack inputs from the Boss TU-2 LED diode 470 ohm resistor for LED diode Wires Metal sheets for faceplate I started out with the cassis from an old Boss TU-2 that I mended a new faceplate for and sanded down to the metal. Having basic skills with soldering and electronics I decided to buy a finished breadboard to make things easier for me.Went with the Adafruit Perma Proto. Here is the schematic for the wiring. I used a 10k potentiometer and a 10k resistor with a two way selector switch to select if I want to use the potentiometer or the resistor. Basically making the pedal variable or 100% expression in the Helix. There is also a simple LED diode circuit connected to the 3PDT switch. I removed the old momentary switch from the Boss TU-2 pedal and replaced it with a 3PDT switch using the plastic washers from the 3PDT switch. Using some metal sheets from an old computer chassis I made a new faceplate for the Boss TU-2 chassis. Drilled seven holes in it for LED, pot, switch and mounting screws. Since this is the first prototype the wires are not cut to length and the breadboard isn't mounted to the chassis. (Sorry for the mess) Using the switch I can now change this pedal between being a type of expression pedal and being 0/100% expression pedal. The Helix sometimes glitches a bit while changing between the two modes making the potentiometer stop at everything between 60% and 90%. Taking the jack out and plugging it back in again fixes that bug. All in all I think it turned out great! Link to album with photos from this post https://imgur.com/a/yQoIikU

    HX Effects expression pedal troubles

    Long time listener, first time caller. I picked up the HXFX recently, getting modern after some years with an HD500, and I'm happy with my decision. Today, though, I picked up a cheap M-Audio expression pedal. When I tested it in store, it seemed to be working fine - the polarity was reversed, even when I flicked that little switch on the back, but I can deal with that by flipping the min and max. What I can't deal with is the fact that switching presets renders the expression pedal totally useless! The only way to get it working again is to turn the unit off and on again - not ideal. There were loads of opinions about which expression pedal to get and plenty of it was over my head. Does anybody know why this pedal isn't working? Can anybody recommend a better one that works consistently? I've got gigs! Thanks, team!

    Pod HD500 Expression pedal not working

    Hi, My HD500 expression pedal doesn't work. It switches between Exp1 and Exp2 (have to push it very hard though), but it doesn't affect VOLUME\PAN settings in presets. I tried to update flash (2.62), rollback flash (2.31), and god knows how many times I tried ro calibrate the pedal: 1) power off the Pod Hd500 2) press Right Arrow 3) power on the Pod Hd500 4) press View to show the Pedal Cal line 5) set the pedal to min position, press A, got 100 on Duty 6) set pedal to max position, press B, got 100 on Duty again 7) press C Here in manuals the reaction from 0 to 255 is expected when pedal is moving, but nothing, it's still 0. After that I press D, power off\on the device and crying in distress. Is this sofware trouble or I should go to a fix guy? If latter, what shoud I tell him?

    HX FX, Delay CC Control

    Greetings, Looking to duplicate a staple of my sound I have been doing with the Digitech Valve FX units since 1995. Unlike the POD XT CC expression control of Delay ‘level’ (and the DL4) with my older Digitech units I can turn the delay on or of with Control One footboard switch engaging it at a low delay level and use expression pedal to fluidly wash between the lowest setting and a full lush delay. When I rock the exp pedal back to heel position the trails from the toe position finish their cycle and are not CUT OFF. Both the DL4 and the POD XT do not seem to be able to do this at all - so my concern is the ‘Mix’ or ‘Level’ parameters for the delays on the HX FX will be equally dissapointing. They both cut off the trails and level of the high range of the effect pulling back to heel position abruptly in a non musical way. So - basically Im used to having midi CC that works as a ‘send’ - pushing the dry signal into the effect which doesnt cut off trails when pulling back the ‘send’ level. I control delay level & feedback in this way with all the incremental levels I ever need from delay in one CC exp pedal. I’m seriously interested in HX FX with my BluGuitar Amp1 4 cable method and hope someone can fully clear this up as I have to drive an hour or more to get my hands on one to test. THANK YOU.
  5. Hi guys! This is my first post on this forum, and unfortunately it's not very positive. I think the known issue with the expression pedal on Helix LT happened and with my unit now. The expression pedal doesn't work as expected anymore. I can clearly see a movement (displacement) of the chassis inside the unit. The pedal squeaks when I press it by my foot and sometimes gets stuck during movement. Today this squeaking got quite destructive during a quiet part of the worship service when I played swells. I've been using the pedal only for a few months so far but the unit itself is out of seller warranty (Long & McQuade). I've already submitted a support ticket, though. Would appreciate any ideas about how to get it fixed. Youtube video:

    EXPRESSION PEDAL STOPS RESPONDING

    Hi, I bought Helix lt in April 2018, since then I was very satisfied with this unit. Since almost 2 months, the Helix onboard expression pedal is behaving very random, being this the second or third time it happens to me: The expression pedal stops working for no reason. The switch toggle from exp 1/exp 2 works fine, I've tried switching presets, snapshots, switching from exp 1/2 , deleting Volume block and adding it again, new preset with volume block, etc. Im thinking also in a factory reset, cause this is very annoying. The worst part is that it happens while gigging, from one part of a song to another, the pedal stops working. I don't want to lose confidence on this unit but it's giving me a hard time. If I'm using it for swelling, well , it is a FAIL if the unit's expression pedal behaves randomly. I have external expression pedals, but using one doesn't fix my issue. The first time it happened to me, it lasted like 1 hour or so, this time I don't know. I just switched it off cause I was tired . I started to look on google hoping to know what was happening, but I think it only happens to me, since there's no other cases like mine in forums, at least. While digging I found out this thing has an optical sensor, but nothing else. Maybe that's the trouble, the damn sensor. Can you help me with this? Thanks

    HX Effects Expression Pedal Issue

    Hi All, First time to post here as I really couldn't find an answer to my issue. I'm using an HX Effects with a dunlop dvp4 mini volume and expression pedal. I connected a trs cable into the aux and pedal 1 of the HX effects to control my wah position or whammy mix position. I did the learn thing, and actually the expression pedal is controlling the right parameters. However, my issue is that the heel position is correct (always 0% on whatever is being controlled), but once i get to the maximum toe position, it goes back to 0% position or what the heel position was doing. I noticed that the peak is somewhere at 70% of toe position. to clarify please see below example. Example on Wah (position vs. sound heard): max heel = bassier sound of a wah 70% of toe = treble sound of a wah max toe (100%) = back to bassier sound of a wah Example on whammy (position vs. sound heard): max heel = 0%mix of whammy sound 70% of toe = 100%mix of whammy sound max toe (100%) = 0%mix of whammy sound Can someone please advise what to do on this issue, I just need a linear relation between heel to toe vs. 0% to 100% wah position, or 0% to 100% mix on some parameters. Thanks in advance!
  8. The integrated expression on my LT pedal broke down. I already contacted my dealer and my LT is hopefully going to be repaired soon. In the meantime I bought a YAMAHA FC7 expression pedal to do the job. It works fine, I just had to switch the polarity. I have the EXP 2/ EXT AMP control set to EXP 2 in on every preset. But every time i switch a patch Helix forgets the external pedal. I have to go through the global menu and "refresh" the EXP 2/ EXT AMP setting to get it work. This is extremely annoying during a live setup. Could not figure a workaround for this.
  9. Hello! I own an Helix floor and I'm looking for an external expression pedal in order to drive whammy effects amon others. I plan buying a Boss FV-500L. What do you think about this plan? Will it work weel with helix floor? If so, should I connect it to Helix with a TS cable? Thanks!
  10. Hello HX Stomp users, I hope I'm not the annoying new guy who asks something already discussed on the forum. However, I searched to no avail and decided to post here. Any help is appreciated. 1. I am wondering if an expression/volume pedal can be employed to control the global volume? I do see that I can employ a block for this but would rather have it applied globally, thereby keeping a block open. 2. If this is possible, what are the steps and what expression pedals are compatible with HX Stomp? This is my first real modelling rodeo, and I am enjoying using HX Stomp as a part of a wet/dry rig with my Mesa. I'm that stubborn guy who loves a Les Paul Custom into a tube screamer through a tube amp. However, I have not reached the "get off my lawn" stage of life yet, and I find the HX Stomp to be pretty fantastic. I have not had a stereo rig in a long time. The Mesa and Helix sound great together! If I can get the global volume pedal thing right, I can move between the JTM, Tweed, and Deluxe models that I programmed with OwnHammer IRs. As much as I try, the volume is a bit different among the amp sims. I also want the ability to duck the wet sound and raise it as needed. That's the motivation behind my question. Thank you in advance.
  11. I've done a fair bit of research about converting an old Wah to an expression pedal, including this great post: I'm hoping to do this for my HX Stomp, but just want to make sure I have a viable plan. I'm hoping to convert my Dunlop Crybaby to act in the same way as the new Mission Helix SP1-L6H REVISION B, which only requires a single TRS cable, rather than the Y-Cable splitter which the Revision A used. I believe I have all the parts I'll need (Dunlop 10K Wah Pot, 3PDT Switch, 10K Resistor, 1/4" STEREO jack), I'm just wondering if anyone has the know-how for how exactly I would wire it all up to make the HX Stomp happy. I believe the SP1-L6H REV. B uses a circuit board, and although I've etched a circuit board or two in the past, I'd prefer to keep this project as simple as possible without requiring a circuit board. I assume the setup would be pretty close to what Verne-Bunsen outlines for the Helix, but I don't quite understand how to wire the single TRS jack instead of the two TS jacks.

    How do you carry your Helix Rack?

    I am planing on swapping my Helix for a Helix Rack + Controller but, I have a few questions: 1. Can the Controller fit in a rack drawer? I am guessing a 2U? 2. How do you transport the Volume pedal? I am guessing you have another drawer just for pedals and you have to connect them at the venue you're playing at? 3. What rack did you get and what do you have on? Drawer for cables? Patchbay? Power conditioner? 4. Do you use a tuner plugged in the Controller in case you can't see the rack? 5. What about the g10? If you use one what do you do? another drawer? (this rack is becoming really big!) I am sure I am not the only one with those questions, so I believe pics would also be great! Thanks :)
  13. What Expression Pedal works with Line6 HX Effects? I like to work with effects from 0% till 100% without any isues The Line6 EX-1 ? The Roland EV-5 Expression Pedal doesn’t do the job apparently, goes to 60%, no matter what I do. Never had problems with the classic Line6 Delay Pedal with the same Roland EV-5 Pedal is there a bug in the Line6 HX Effects about the expressionpedal topic? Seems there are more people to suffer with this topic.
  14. Hello everyone, I have a Helix connected to a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Solo head using 4 cable method. I am switching channels and solo channel using a Voodoo Labs Control Switcher via midi program change through the Helix using instant commands in my Snap Shots. Here is what I would like to accomplish, when I step on the expression pedal it enables the wah (which I have setup) and would like to have it send a program change to change the amp channel then when I return the pedal back to disengage the wah send another program change to change the amp channel. Can this be done? Thanks in advance, Mike
  15. My apologies if this has been answered before, I searched but could not find it. Is this normal? On my HX Stomp, I have an expression pedal set up to control the master volume on my amp model. This works fine with the pedal plugged in, no issues. BUT, when there is no pedal plugged in the value of the Master defaults to 0.0. I had expected that the patch would revert to the original saved volume. So, if I forget my expression pedal, or the cable goes bad, any patch I have set up this way has no output. I understand the logic if this is normal, it's just not what I expected - the only other unit I've used with an expression pedal is the Zoom G3. If it is normal, I'll set up duplicate patches in case I forget the pedal or it fails. This is not a big deal, but I don't want to do it and later find out I didn't have to. Thanks is advance for any help!
  16. So I've been using guitar/amp modellers for nearly 20 years now - right back to the Roland VG-8 in 1998. In all that time I've been through many, many different expression pedals. All of them have their quirks, but they usually get the job done after a bit of set up. When I got my Helix Rack & Control last year, I decided to treat it to some new expression pedals, so I bought 2 FV-500Ls and an FV-500H. I wanted something rugged for realtime control of both the Helix and Ableton Live. I had nothing but problems from the start, though. I understand the idea behind the 'dead zones' on the FVs, but they were a bit much for me - a waste of range (even with spacers fitted). I had a spare EV-5, too, but it was the opposite - I couldn't reliably get to 100% as there seemed to be no spare range at the toe down position. I put up with it for volume but, due to the size/weight of the FVs and the range of the EV, I decided to sell them and look for something else. I'm a bit short on cash at the moment, so I decided to take a chance on the M Audio EX-P and bought 2 for £14 each. I couldn't be more impressed! The EX-P was 99% plug and play, with only the polarity needing switched in the global settings and flicking the EX-P's switch to 'Other'. The range is fantastic! It's got exactly the right amount of tolerance at either end to make auto-engage a joy to use, and pitch effects work brilliantly with no fear of missing 100%. They're smooth, and the taper seems good. OK, the EX-P isn't going to win any prizes for sturdiness, but at roughly 1/6th the price of a new FV-500 (and about a 10th of a Mission pedal!), it's quite easy to justify having a couple of brand new spares. I've now got 4 - 3 for the Helix and 1 spare (which may get used for my BOSS GP-10). One big issue I had with the FV/EVs (which I thought was a fault of the Helix) was that the values in Pedal Edit Mode would jump and 'flutter' as soon as I entered. The EX is rock solid. I don't need to worry about anything happening when entering PEM until I actually move the pedal itself. This has finally opened up the true usefulness of Pedal Edit Mode to me; a feature I was really looking forward to when I first read about the Helix. If you don't use PEM, give it a try! It's a HUGE time saver. I've spent a bit of time today tweaking sounds as a I play, and it's made tone-shaping far, far quicker. I was able to 'dial' out a lot of fizz and smooth things out on a patch that was otherwise proving a bit too fiddly. I know it's kind of obvious as that's what PEM is all about, but I think it's a feature that's often overlooked. I'm looking forward to using PEM when I'm out gigging next as I think I'll now be able to quickly tweak my tones at full volume while we soundcheck. If anyone's looking to try the EX-P, make sure you get the current version. I did have one years ago, but it needed a mod (to add a resistor) before it worked properly with 3rd party gear. The latest one has a convenient switch. I've successfully tested it with my GP-10, Katana 100, and a Behringer Motör keyboard.

    Looper vs expression pedal

    Ok , when I am just sitting , and Just making some noise I love to have , my beatbuddy , a looper and my guitar , but because I like to have the helix on the table , to tweak tones , I wish to use a foot switch for looper control I have a boss fs-5 foot switch , the one that Is dual switch ,momentary or toggle , I wish to operate the looper with the foot wile having the helix on the desk , or at list push record while playing , is that possible ? Another question is on the back of the helix have two exp inputs , the EXP2 and EXP3 are they TRS or TS only ? Sorry if the question if is too amateurish , but I will get there , I am a slow learner :) thanks for any help
  18. My M5 has been acting a bit strange lately. I have an expression pedal connected to it, but sometimes the M5 doesn't register the full sweep. A good example would be the Whammy preset: I configured the expression pedal to go from 0.0 to +12.0. However, sometimes when I put it toe down, it goes to +11.8 or something. I'm able to fix the issue by disconnecting the power and restarting the M5 a couple of times, after which it stays stable and always registers the full sweep, until I power it up again the next time. Anyone had a similar experience? How did you fix it? It's rather annoying I sometimes have to connect and disconnect the power for up to ten times before it works correctly. Thanks in advance, Wout

    X3 LIVE Wah and volume Selection

    Hi. I have a question about the volume/wah expression pedal. If I assign it to volume/wah, does it normally switches vice versa if I step the pedal all the way to my toe as said in the description because mine does not. I did follow the instruction for the settings but If I push it hard with my toes, no changes at all. Does the switch happen to be defective?

    pitch whammy octave clear? 100%?

    Hello, I know this issue have been mentioned before, but I don't find the right answer. I've got Pitch whammy set to heel pos.0 toe pos. -24. with Expression pedal 1. Only when I activate the snapshot with this pitch whammy it points -24. When I use the expression pedal up and down it only goes to -23. Off octave. I read about the automatic calibration and it sometimes does occur, sometimes it works fine. Any ideas?
  21. Howdy all Have seen a bunch of expression pedal posts; seems odd that it should be such a challenge to get third party, passive expression pedals to work with a multi effect unit in this day and age, but I digress. Below are some pics of the necessary mods to a Morley M2 in order to get it to play nice with the Helix. Essentially, you disconnect lead 3 from its correspondingly numbered jumper (someone please correct my terminology here), and connect lead 3 to lead/jumper 1. The warranty-voiding mod is shown along with my sloppy soldering in thosr pics with a small red wire in them. It's possible to secure the wire manually if you're extremely dexterous or have tiny little hands or what have you, but I found it to be a little bit of a tight space to solder in. Been a fan of Morleys for awhile - they're generally tough and I favor both their shape and height, but your foot may vary. Cheers - Dan

    Making the jump

    I've been using a comprehensive pedal board for quite some time now, but have played with POD XT, Boss GT-100 and other older modellers in the past. After a fair amount of research and YouTubing I'm close to making the jump to the Helix LT, but have a quick expression controller question. I'm sure this is a no brainer to any of you guys, but haven't had a hands on with this yet and need to know if I can assign a volume or wah to Exp 1 and then have Exp 2 control the speed of a tremolo or rotary or any number of other block-type parameters? Thanks for the assist and looking forward to rockin this beast! ~cheers
  23. Greetings, y'all. Greetings, y'all! I've seen several threads of people breaking their exp pedal on helix LT, some even broke two in a row. And I've seen some one referring to an official statement that it is not an inherent design flaw rather than just a manufactoring one (they say, one metal press did not work properly, or something like that). If it really is just one press, and it really was fixed there should be an information on what units can have this issue and what units can not, based on their s/n and/or manufactoring date. Can I haz it pweees? Ya know, so i can avoid defected ones. Yeah, i know, their awesome customer service will send me new unit, if i ever break one. But here's the catch: i'm not gonna contact local official dealer, because they charge almost twice the price (like 1800$ for LT or so, lol), so i'm going to some unofficial pushers who charge an adequate amount of 1000$. And here's more: I don't trust our postal service, because they can easily loose a package, especially if it's the expensive one, so i can't bank on having my replacement straight from Line6 in case anything happens.
  24. So I use for Helix for more them half a year I think so I know how to use it and I know that to change between those two you need to step hard enough on the pedal, and it worked good till this monday. Now it does not change as good as it did. I have to push a lot harder and even when I do it doesn't switch in most of the times. And when it does there is also a problem that I see that it changes for a moment and then goes back like I pushed it twice(which, of course, didn't). Couldn't find anything on this topic by myself, so hope someone can help me with this.
  25. Hi all expression pedal nerds, In the past, I have simply toggled the on-board pedal between exp1, and exp 2, to change from volume to wah, or whatever else.... I just bought a second hand EX1, and it functions as it should. My problem is, every patch, (presumably, because it was set up with toggling the onboard pedal only), I have to physically unplug the EX1, and then re-connect it,and then save the patch, for the EX1 to have control of the volume, freeing up the onboard pedal for whatever else.... Is there any way around this? Yea - I know - first world problem, but surely this scenario was thought of, in the design phase! LINE 6??? Anyone home to answer this?
