  1. I've been experimenting with using MIDI expression pedals on synths I'm triggering with my guitar and have a MIDI foot controller into the MIDI IN of the Helix. I have the expression pedal set to CC1 which is Modulation Wheel and I can see (using MIDI Monitor on my Mac) that is sending just that (using Helix's MIDI Thru) and it is properly moving the mod wheel on a soft synth. Great. The problem is it is ALSO controlling any Helix patches with a Volume Pedal so when I pedal down the mod wheel (to its origin) it also turns the volume pedal all the way down on the patch. I tried moving it to another block but it still is affected. If I turn it off I can see the ghosted version going up and down but it doesn't affect the volume. Anyone aware of this issue? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
  2. So I have a problem setting up this dual setup with a exp pedal AND a momentary footswitch. Do anyone have any experience with this? I've tried with a Rockboard Y split cable, and a mission engineering exp pedal built for line6 pedals. Maybe i need to get another exp pedal, or cable?... Let me know!
  3. Curious to know how other people use MIDI for volume control on their Helix and what block and parameter you're sending CC values to. I know answers will differ based on the how you're using your volume pedal in the chain. Right now I have my HX stomp set up to take CC messages on the Level parameter in the final Output block but I'm thinking of moving the volume control to earlier in the chain and controlling the Level parameter in my Cab block so it comes before all synth and time based effects. How are other people doing this?
  4. Saw an ad for the Ampero Press Passive Volume / Expression Pedal. Has anyone tested this with hx stomp's expression 1/2 input? Wondering if it works well and as-well as Mission?
  5. Afternoon all I want to use an expression pedal connected to my Morningstar MC8 to control overall patch/preset volume of my HX Stomp via MIDI. I know I could assign the expression pedal to a volume block but I'd like to know what parameter in the amp block you guys (and gals) would assign it to if you had used up all the Stomp blocks ; channel volume or master volume? Obviously the pros of the volume block are I could put it anywhere in the chain but assigning it to an amp parameter frees up that block for something else Thanks Ben
  6. I would like to get from a clean sound to a nice bluesy solo sound by expression pedal, not by snapshot. If I only turn up the drive, the sound gets too loud. So I would have to build in a volume reduction at the same time. I have no idea how to do that. Can anyone help?
  7. Hi peeps! Today I notice that the expression pedal was not aligned properly, and was actually scraping the left side of the gap in the metal. The whole pedal was slightly off kilter off center. I took the included hex key and loosened the bolt a little. Then I moved the pedal with my foot. Nothing helped. Until I pressed the pedal in (as in to switch between Exp 1 and Exp 2) and it re-aligned itself. I then tightened the bolt and it seems to be back to normal. So did I break it or is this normal? I barely use this particular Helix, only when I play gigs. thanks!
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. I am trying to use my M9 almost exclusively as a looping pedal and have run into an issue. I want to record loops and use my expression pedal as a volume control to control the loop volume. I have assigned the expression pedal to the FX slot where I have a volume control and it does work, however, since the M9 is at the end of my chain, the expression volume controls the ENTIRE SIGNAL I want to be able to just control the loop volume with the pedal and be able to play over the loop at any volume. I can't figure it out. Pre / Post doesn't seem to make any difference. Any thoughts? There is not a ton of info about using the M9 as a looper, I have been searching. thank you!
  11. Hello. I've got a HX Stomp with a Mission Engineering EP1-L6 that I mainly use as Wah. When I record something I tend to want to save the raw guitar sound for reamping later. Is it possible to have the pedal transmitting midi CC when I use the wah so I can record the MIDI data in Logic Pro X? Is so I could then elect to edit the data, even change wah type when I reamp later. Thanks
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. I'm building a synth-like patch, with the built-in Helix expression pedal controlling the high-cut (low-pass) frequency of the Low and High Cut block. With the pedal min at 1kHz and max at 11kHz, there's not enough fine control at the low end. If I drop the max range of the pedal, I won't have enough highs with the pedal fully down. If there's an option for a logarithmic sweep like in the Volume block, that will solve the problem. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to do that. Care to help? And yes, I've tried using the Wah blocks, but all of them have a very pronounced resonance peak at the cut-off frequency of which there's no control to cut out. Side problem: Is there a low-pass filter block that goes lower than 1kHz?
  15. When I connect my Boss volume pedal to my HX Stomp, it seems to mess with the signal. When connecting the 'Exp' to the Stomp, the parameters are reversed. This is no problem since I can re-reverse them in HX edit. However, the sweep only goes down from about 40% to a 100% sweep. Connecting the mono out makes a sweeps from 14% to a 100%. And when connecting the stereo outputs through a TRS cable, the sweep starts at 7% till 100%. Also the sweep drops from 100% quickly to 5% and then gets back up to around 7%. From reading online and these blogs, I couldn't directly find a solution. Anyone else experienced something similair with their volume / exp pedals? Is there any workaround besides buying a different exp pedal?
  16. 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?
  17. 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
  18. 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!
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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?

  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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
