  1. I am running the most recent firmware on my HX Effects. For an expression pedal, I am using a Thru-Tone EXT-Ult, built into an Ernie Ball volume pedal with a kick switch on the side. The wah is turned on by using the kick switch on the side, and then controlled with the treadle itself. So the switch is just an on/off switch connected to the HXFX exp pedal 2 jack with a small patch cable. Recently, on about 20 different occasions (during performances and practice at home), I was nowhere near my pedalboard and the wah just switched on. To turn it off, I have to engage the switch and then disengage it. Trying the patch at home, I was looking at the computer editor and watched the wah engage by itself. I've swapped out patch cables. And before the most recent firmware, this has always worked for over a year and 100s of performances. What could be causing the wah to switch on? I didn't change anything in the patch in the new firmware- it is the same one I always use. Obviously the HXFX thinks the on/off for the wah was engaged, but it most certainly wasn't as the pedalboard was across the stage at the time. I spent the last few shows glued to my board, ready to turn off the wah (good thing, too, as it happened a few times). When I am not using the wah, I use the exp pedal for delay time and feedback, otherwise I'd just program the wah to come on when I reach 5% or something. I might just ditch the wah in my presets if it isn't something I can fix. I can't say for certain it is the firmware, but that is when all of this started happening. Anything else I can try? Priest? Holy water?
  2. Hello everyone I am the owner of a Helix LT that I use in 4CM mode with my amp head. I use the single EXT output to change the channel of my head. When I change the channel via the helix, the light changes between EXP 1 and EXP2, so I had to assign two volume pedals at the beginning of the signal (one for each channel of the head). But when I change snapshot (and head channel), pedal 2 goes to 0%. I put a video that shows the problem. It seems that this is only present on the LT since the original Helix has a dedicated output for the channel change. Has anyone encountered this problem before? Thanks a lot to all. IMG_3112.mp4
  3. Hello everyone, I wanted to ask for some help with a setup I want to achieve. I've searched the forums for my answer but haven't seen anyone want what I'm trying to do. Disclaimer - I'm not new to guitar or pedals but I am a noob with expression pedals. I want to hook up my Dunlop DVP4 mini expression pedal AND a single momentary (unlatched) button external footswitch (see attached example pic) to the HX Stomp expression jack (EXP 1/2, FS 4/5). My Goal is to use the expression for whatever I need and to set the external FS4 to toggle between stomp modes (bank, preset, snapshot, and pedals) because for some reason you can't make FS3 do this function. My question is does the HX stomp allow for this type of setup, and if so what cables do I need to get to make this happen (need to go buy them as I only have a single TRS cable at the moment). The jack can be used for both expression and footswitches but it does not mention if you can cross the two. I've confirmed my Dunlop DVP4 works well with the HX stomp so we're good there. My guess: (reminder of me being a noob with expression pedals) Looks like I need a Y Cable (TRS to two TS connections) - I was thinking this one https://ebssweden.com/content2/accessories/patch-cables-connectors/ But I do not know for sure that approach works. Thanks in advance for any guidance!
  4. Hello all I want to use Harley Benton midi foot controller with HX https://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_mp_100_midi_foot_controller.htm Will I have any issue with using it? Will it allow me to use 4 expression pedals? 2 on hx and 2 on midi foot controller? I’m not very switched on with midi talk but will be able to program easy enough as I like to get deep and dirty with set up. The reason for the change is I play bass clarinet and it’s difficult to bend down with my instrument to change effects on the fly and want to have my board at hand height to and control hx with foot controller. Before I had the hx I had a loop switcher to be able switch stuff on and off from the floor and tweak at waist/hand height. any help is appreciated
  5. 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.
  6. I want the expression pedal to control by Exp2 the position parameter of a wah block going from 0-100% using the full range of the pedal. Instead of this the range is limited e.g. 0-35%. I am using a Boss EV-30 which I connected by a stereo cable. Exp1 should switch the wah off on 0%. I played with the minimum knob of the pedal and all the settings of the HXstomp. Nothing helped. Perhaps someone could give me his wah settings?

  8. I cant get reverb spill over to work. If you are familiar with the Solid Gold FX Surf Rider pedal, you'll know that you can control the reverb depth via an expression pedal. This is awesome because you can make on the fly adjustments to the depth of the reverb. Also, the reverb that is generated, is not affected by subsequent expression pedal adjustments. It's just "spills over". Great for on the fly reverb stabs. Demonstrated here: https://youtu.be/wcOtj6weHHM?t=205 Is there any way to do this with the Helix? I've tried mapping Reverb Block Depth and Mix controls to my expression with Trails set to "on" but, no matter what I do, adjusting the expression pedal affects the Depth/Mix of previously generated reverb which deletes the spill over effect. I've also tried doing this with an outboard reverb through the effects loop thinking I could adjust the mix there but, same thing. Trails works fine when bypassing the verb but, I cant get spill over to work. Has anybody found a way to do this? Thankyou.
  9. 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!
  10. Hi all I'm looking to expand my HX Stomp functionality with an expression pedal (or two). I'm not looking for brand recommendations but the following; Both the Line 6 & Mission Engineering pedals have 10k ohm linear pots in them but I've read on various sites (in researching for HX and Eventide H9 use) that value isn't a given and others say it is. So my question is has anyone had experience using an expression pedal with a 20k ohm pot in it with their Line 6 & other units and does it make any real difference between the two values? Thanks, Ben
  11. 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!
  12. Hi everyone, I do have a Line6 Helix Floor, not LT, and I noticed that my expression pedal gets loose after using it for some swells. I have to tighten the screw at the side again and again which is kinda annoying. Does anyone have a solution for this or experience with it? Thanks in advance!
  13. Hi all, I know theres a million questions about the pedals not working on these boards, and a simple calibration always seems to solve it. I have just purchased an HD500X used, and the pedal seems to work intermittently. It will work pretty good for 5 minutes or so then just stop working entirely. I have tried calibrating it, but when it goes to testing it the scale just sits at 0 instead of moving through to 255. I can not get it to register any sort of input at this point. Any ideas on what could be causing it, if it is hardware or software related? Any responses and advice are much appreciated!
  14. Two weeks a go I was using my FBV3 in regular way with the spider remote , then the app shows a message saying : Expression Pedal Auto-Reassign With this model change, the expression pedal assignment is no longer valid. It has been set to Sensitivity. Later the expression pedal stops working, on wha and volume. Somebody knows if it's the pedal or the update?.
  15. Hi guys, I wanna utilize both foot switches on an FS-6 connected to my HX Stomp, and use an expression pedal as a Wah or volume pedal. A) Is that possible? ..and if so: Which expression pedal type do I need? B) How do I connect? and finally; C) How do I configure the whole shabam on the HX Stomp? Crossing my fingers for some hard expertise! Lars, Norway,
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. Hi all, New HX Effect user here, first post. It seems there have been many threads regarding the quirks with the expression pedal but I haven't seen this one yet. My issue is that the expression pedal position seems to be affected by the state of another block - namely the Ext Amp control. When the Ext. amp button is off (clean channel on amp), the heel position only returns to 3%, not 0. When ON (overdrive) it does return to 0. This is especially problematic with whammy effects... I expect the heel position to be the unaffected note, but it's 3% sharp. I'm using a line6 EX-1 expression pedal connected with a short TS patch cable. I've tried to swap cables, same result. The result is also the same whether the amp is connect through the EXP 2 jack or not so it's not a grounding issue there. I suspect it may be an interference issue between the 2 EXP/Amp jacks? Anyone else experiencing this? I could make a short video to demonstrate. Thanks
  19. 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?
  20. Hi all, New HX Effects user here. I've been using a Bespeco 18L Exp Pedal with my LIne 6 M5 with no problems and just assumed it would work with the HX Effects. Hooked it up last night to try it and can't seem to get it to work. First question is, can anyone confirm compatibility with the Bespeco 18L? - it's a 20k pot I believe If so, what am I doing wrong?! If not, what are the alternatives - can't seem to find a list of compatible pedals for the HX Effects. Many thanks
  21. I am currently building an HX effects into a rack for someone. They will be using 4 cable at the amp. For the most part the drive will be coming from the amp but, they were asking if they could have 1 boost in front of the amp that they could click off/on from the front of stage. All that will currently be at the front of stage is a Voodoo Lab Commander. This will only have MIDI to the HX Effects. I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find a switch that can be run to the expression jack that can be assigned to an effect. I've so far tested a regular switch and a hard switch, both TS/TRS and nothing seems to work. I see that Mission has a pedal that has a toe switch (not sure if that's Helix/Stomp only) but, I don't need an expression pedal. Thanks to anyone that can point me in the right direction of a product or the how-to (switch type, cable type, etc.)!
  22. hey, how can i create a snapshot, in which i have a volume pedal in the beginning, and when i press the toe-switch of the expression pedal i get a pitch wham effect (0 at heel-position, +12 at toe-position) ? I already tried it several times and it didn't work. most of the time both effects where at exp1 even if i assigned one effect to exp 2 ... probably an easy question for you pro's. thanks!
  23. Hello Line 6 Community I would like to know if it is possible to record my expression pedal movements from my helix into my Daw (Ableton). When I record my dry signal I need to simultaneously record my expression pedal movements into my daw as Midi cc Messages, to later be sent back into my helix to automate the movement of the expression pedal during playback. I know that it is possible to use the draw tool in Ableton to manually enter the position of the expression pedal, but this is extremely tedious since I constantly use the expression pedal throughout all my songs. and hard to manually enter since I use different speeds! I also want to be able to send this recorded midi information do my Digitech Bass Whammy Pedal which can receive midi messages. ( please line 6, add a DIGITECH BASS WHAMMY effect) If the Helix can't do this, do you know of a product that can??? Thank you.
  24. So, this may be too much to want. I upgraded from the Helix LT to a Rack with the foot controller recently. When I had the LT, i had the built in exp pedal set to a pitch shifter and an external exp pedal set to volume controller. It was great. Well the Helix Foot Controller doesn't have a built in exp pedal (which is absolutely ridiculous since the floor board and LT do, but whatever.) So I'm just using my external pedal for the pitch shifter currently. Wondering if there's any possible way to have a foot switch toggle what the external pedal is using. Like click a switch and it overwrites what the default for the pedal is and clicking it again will revert back. I've tried messing around and couldn't ever get anything to work so in bot sure if something like that is even possible. I don't really NEED the volume control, so what I'm doing is fine. But it is pretty handy having it and I don't want to buy another external pedal just for the convenience of it. Thanks anyways
  25. 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
