  1. I run into a problem where I can;t place the same FX loop in Path 1 and 2. I have a Digitech Drop and I want to use in both chain. I know I can split path 1 into 2 or 1a and 1b... but I hit DSP limit. Here is the simplified diagram. Path 1: FX loop 1 ----- Amp -----delay----- ------output Path 2: FX loop 1-------Amp-----distortion-------output
  2. Hi there (LINE 6)- I bought a Firehawk 1500 with FBV3 foot pedal about a year ago, I have loved the purchase - the amp has a great range of sound and kicks on any previous amp that I have had previously. I also like that I am able to use the Firehawk Remote app to modify sounds. That said - I have issues with the Firehawk Remote app because it doesn't allow me to move the Reverb before the FX LOOP in the graphic effects routing screen. I have an external looper with digital drum kit that inevitably has to be before the Reverb as I switch between guitar effects causing the drums to sound different on every change. Very annoying. LINE 6 - Could you update the Firehawk REMOTE so that the FX LOOP can be at the end of the router or at least after the LOOPER? Please??? As you can see in my image - the REVERB can only be moved to one location and I want to be able to have it after the AMP but before the FX LOOPER. As you can see in my graphic the FX LOOPER can only be moved backward in the sequence. Also - are there software updates for both the Firehawk 1500 and the FX REMOTE?
  3. Hello Helix and HX wizards, I am trying to run a Wet/Dry rig with (my two amps and) my HX Effects. The "twist" is that I need an FX loop, with this additional element I can't figure out how to make it work without running into some phase issues... Any help ? :) Thanks !

    Helix LT Volume Boost

    Hey what’s up! I’m brand new to the Helix family and purchased myself a Helix LT. As we all know, in a real amp situation, putting an OD in the Loop gives you a volume boost. I’m trying to create the same type of volume boost using only the Helix LT. How can I achieve this? I have no idea how to make an FX Loop given the signal chain within the Helix LT and/or how to get any type of volume boost without altering the tone I’ve already created. Any help with this will be GREATLY appreciated. I’m running my LT straight into the board, so no amps of any kind are being used. Strictly the Helix LT and it’s on board tones. Thank you!
  5. I’m setting up my HX Stomp as part of my pedalboard and want to put my Strymon Blue Sky in the FX loop of the Stomp. Before the FX loop, in the Stomp chain, I have delays that are in stereo, so ideally I would want to keep the signal stereo after that. How do I keep the signal in stereo into the FX loop, seeing as the send on the stomp only is one jack? Do I need to get a 1/4 stereo split cable going from the FX send into the Blue Sky left and right, to then send left and right in two separate cables back into the return of the stomp?
  6. Hi Folks, After lots of learning from others here, thought I would give back with a fun work-around for getting a USB based FX Loop (or send / return) working with the Stomp. I have been playing with the HX Stomp for the past week trying to get a setup that allows me to send a signal to an external Laptop for processing and then return it into the block chain. I want to make this as resilient to failure as possible, so having this as insert inside the Stomp allows me to bypass in the rare event of a system crash. I am using Ableton Live for some wacky Max4Live processing, allowing me to use the Stomp for more generic duties like modelling, dynamics and modulation effects. I am running my stomp straight from my Bass guitar, and into a clean amp. All blocks need to be mono for this config to work. Source (Bass Guitar) into Mono (L) inout of the Stomp, and then Mono (L) output to amp. Its important to pan your main L/R output path in the final block to Left, as this free's up the Right output for the return from the USB feed. Create an FX Loop R Block. Keeping trails on and then assigning a CC controller (exp pedal) to the Mix value will really make this fun and flexible. Add a small patch lead from the Send Output (I just used a standard mono jack guitar lead) to the Right Input of the stomp. On your Laptop and chosen Application ( I am using Ableton here), select the Stomp as the USB interface and set the processing track/channel to use USB Input #4. Add your desired DSP plugins etc and then route this channel out USB Output #2. Connect a Patch cable from the Stomp Output Right to the Return Right. All I/O in my instance was set to Instrument level, and the send and return levels matched the internal Stomp block path really well, but you can adjust this in your DAW or the Stomp FX Loop block settings. The scope for fun this way is vast. I was trying out some pitch tracking tools and MaxForLive patches, converting the input into low synth lines, then goofing around with some granular clouds. By being an FX Loop block on the stomp, I could move this around to either feed or be fed by the Looper Block. You can even split the FX Loop into a Send and Return to increase your scope for mangling. I measured the latency with a Max Patch I have made, and the Stomp by itself measures between 1.4ms and 1.7ms depending on the blocks chosen. Adding in Ableton Live, with the buffer set to 256, this added another 15.9ms. You can use lower buffers, but you will get the occasion buffer underun glitch. As I am mostly generating 100% wet FX within Ableton, and the Stomp is processing the direct signal, you get the best of both worlds. I have used Ableton on hundreds of live performances, and have to say that its amazingly stable - it has crashed only once in that time, and that was due to a naughty third-party convolution plugin, that swiftly got replaced by the Max convolver, so I am not too concerned about stability. Having the Stomp as the core to my sound and now as the Audio Interface into and out out Ableton is just amazing! If the Line 6 developers / product managers are listening in these forums, it would be so much cleaner to extend the USB Audio routing to allow this configuration without resorting to turning the Stomp into a cable-octopus. Ideally this audio routing would then allow us to do this FX Loop via USB in Stereo. Attached is a pic of the Stomp and a blank Preset with the FX Loop block and routing done. Have fun.

    HX Effects FX LOOP sounds bad in 4CM.

    So, I have had the HX Effects for one year now. The ENTIRE time I have had it, I have not understood where this CONSTANT noise is coming from. FINALLY, the other day I turned OFF the FX Loop in the four cable method...and VOILA, NO noise!! It is extra severe when in my amp's distortion channel. (I play out of a three thousand dollar Orange amp that is pristine and SILENT when I plug my guitar straight in - so it IS the HX effects screwing up my scene.) Is there a fix to this problem??! Do I have to send it in?? (I don't have time for that). My solution for my show this saturday is to TOTALLY reprogram the thing for my ten song, forty minute set using the two cable method. So, I'll be piping the full sound of the effects etc directly into the front of the amp.This is NOT what I bought this thing for. So, essentially, my HX Effects is a huge failure and I can't send it back now. I hope there is a solution.
  8. Hi, I admittedly have not had enough time to physically test the cable to make this work but I cannot seem to find a clear answer before I go down the rabbit hole- maybe somebody has had this pop up also? I bought the HX Stomp and want to use it with a Boss MS3 for a fly rig. My goal would be to hook up the MS3 in the FX Loop of the HX Stomp for maximum flexibility of effects ordering. The MS3 is a mono TS input with 2 stereo TS outputs. I want to use those stereo outputs for some of the delays and additional signal routing possible as a result. I am well versed in the HD500 from the past, Helix Native and also HX Effects for editing tones/signals and such. On the HX Stomp, can I create an FX block that allows for the mono send but with stereo returns on it? Any special work arounds to consider on this? I am pretty certain the MS3 will not like a TRS cable at it's input which would neutralize the FX TRS send, I just don't know how a TS cable on FX Send from HX Stomp will affect the block as a return in stereo. It seems like only real work around is 2 blocks, a mono send and then a stereo return - any other ways to do this as 1 block? Thank you all in advance for the help!!

    Blocks required for FX Loop L&R

    Hi, I've had my HX Stomp less than a week, so still have much to learn. I'm using it to process both sides of my Chapman Stick, with a Deluxe Reverb or Twin Reverb for the melody strings (Path A) and an Ampeg SVT for the bass strings (Path B). That uses up a lot of DSP, so I'm trying to be as economical/efficient as possible with the remaining DSP and blocks. I have an MXR Carbon Copy delay and a TC Electronic Flashback Mini delay that I run mono into the FX Loop L and R channels. The delay pedals themselves are always on. The two blocks (FX Loop L and FX Loop R) are on Path A, and I route the signal between them with snapshots. I never route the signal through both delays at the same time, so if one block is on the other is off. This uses two blocks, but I wonder if there isn't a way to achieve this with only one block? Maybe there is a way to do it with a single FX Loop stereo block that I haven't figured out yet? If not, I might add a request to Ideascale, to use a snapshot to toggle between FX Loop L and R on only one block. Thanks! ramuji

    HX Stomp Questions

    First off, I’m an HX Stomp newbie and completely excited with the countless opportunities unlocked with this new pedal. I’m mainly using the Stomp as an “on pedalboard” amp and cab/ir simulator for live direct to house application. Few questions: 1) I use Strymon Timeline and Big Sky for my wet effects. Should I run those thru the Stomp using a FX s/r and internal FX block? Or simply run the wet effects after Stomp? Pros and cons with both approaches (e.g. quality differences)? 2). For FOH live application, I currently run out of my pedalboard into a Radial JDI passive direct box to mixing board. How should the EQ be set on the mixing board to get the best/true sound reproduction? I have pretty inexperienced sound engineers and I don’t want to have them tweak to death so it’s horrible and unrecognizeable. I want to set myself to give some guidance. I know the Stomp/Helix can translate great live just need some guidance. 3) Practice to Live. My goal is to simulate at home to getting best tones at practice and setup that translate great live. I am using a PA system at home. Should I replace with FRFR monitors? I want to ensure what I’m spending several hours tweaking at home works and is consistent live. Thanks in advance for your help.
  11. If I put it in split it sounds really weird. Even having it in chain colors the tone whether timeline is engaged or not. Does anyone use timeline in an Fx loop with success? helix and timeline are both on latest update
  12. Hi i hope someone can help. I’ve just updated my knackered old Pod XT Live for the HD500X and I’m running into problems running it through the effects loop of my MESA Dual Rectifier. I seemed to have tried every option, but even with no effects and amps/cabs on the HD, when I pump the volume up on the clean channel of the Rectifier the volume drops drastically and a horrible high-pitched feedback appears. If I disengage the HD (by turning the Loop option off on my Rectifier pedal) the volume returns to normal and all is well! When I turn the Rectifier down to eliminate the feedback and compare the loop signal with the unlooped signal the loop signal has more treble bias. any ideas are welcome! Thanks!

    HX Effects FX Loop usage

    Hey Everyone, I recently purchased an HX effects that I'm strictly running into my effects loop, with another board with my Wah/Overdrives running through the front end of my amp. I've recently discovered this new brand of pedals called "Meris" (They make some amazing stuff). I was wondering theoretically can you put two pedals through one loop on the HX Effects if both of those pedals are controlled via a preset Switch? Meris makes a very nifty looper like pedal that allows you to connect two of their pedals and save a preset sound for each pedal on 1 of the 4 buttons. Was hoping this would work to have a 3rd micro board for synth effects using their Enzo synth pedal, and their Mercury 7 reverb strictly for synth tones that I could run through the HX effects as well.

    Noisy FX Loop on Tube amp lead channel

    Hi, I would like to have your opinion on a strange noise coming from my setup : I'm using the 4CM with my Helix and my Engl Ironball head following the standard procedure : https://goo.gl/images/7CrDsD On my Engl clean channel, the sound is ok without any buzz or parasites. Problems happens when I switch on the lead channel and get awful numeric sounds (Which you could hear right here : https://youtu.be/l-dEdm9L2IM). I've run other tests to try to find the guilty : running a boss delay on the fx loop of my Engl on Lead doesn't produce any parasites, running the helix with the 4CM on a tubeless combo amp (peavey bandit) lead channel doesn't produce any parasites whatsoever. What would you think ? Inevitable DA/AD parasites sound coming from Helix amplify on high gain tube amp ? Thanks !
  16. I recently purchased a FX effect unit and really like everything it can do. I'm running 4cm into a Hughes and Kettner tubemeister 36 head. As I'm building a scene, i get the distortion from the HX effect dialed in. As I add to the signal chain and place the effects loop (after the distortion) the sound becomes thin, almost like a am radio. If I turn the loop off i get the original sound. Am I missing something on the set up? I have a comp, Distortion, fx loop, chorus, delay, and noise gate. Other than using snapshots to turn the loop on only when I want the amps distortion, am i missing something in the set up?
  17. HI, I tried to connect the Pod HD500 to my Spider Valve MKII HD 100 using the Fx Loop. But I don't get it working properly. Can anymone give me advise how to connect them using the 4 cable method and what I need to change in my POD tones in order to make it working in the FX loop? Thanks for your comments ;-) Best regards Carsten

    Send/Return issues with FX loop JVM

    Im having some slight issues that I can't seem to figure out. I started a new preset to work with 4CM. Ive tried setting the send/return up different ways, but the problem I am having is when I activate the wah, it turns my fx send/return block off. If I activate fx block while wah is active, then when I de-activate the wah, it turns the fx block off. Is there any way to leave the fx block on at all times? why is the wah linked to it? How do I change it? I also tried using the 4CM template, and the HELIX PreAmp would disable my fx block when I activated the pre-amp..any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! (Here are a few pics of the different ways I have tried. Everything works until the wah is activated)
  19. I must be missing something... I cant seem to get the fx loop to function. Here is my cable connection path. Guitar into hd500x guitar in. 1/4 out left mono to amp. FX send to amp fx loop in. Amp fx loop out to hd500x fx return left mono. I have no amp sim as I am using pre amp of the amplifier. After the mixer in 500x edit I placed the fx loop and it is enabled. after that I placed a delay from my 500x. The mix of the fx loop is at 50%. Even though the delay is after the fx loop, the delay is still going into the signal chain to my amps input rather than the fx loop. I even tried leaving the fx loop and delay on and unplugged the cables for the loop from the amp and I'm still getting delay. I though everything after the fx loop should only be routed through the loop but this is not whats happening. I cant get anything to be post gain on my amp. I'm at a loss. this should be simple. Any help is greatly appreciated. TY
  20. Hello friends I have just gotten a Firehawk and I have som problems understanding a few (probably silly and easy) things with the alternative "four cable method" and the Firehawk. It's been correctly connected (thanks for all instructions about that) and when the FX Loop is turned on I can use all the effects nicely. But when I turn the FX Loop off of the FH there is no sound at all? It's like the amp I'm running FH through is turned off. And I cannot (FX Loop turned on or off) hear any of my playback music. The music that normally via bluetooth gets sent to the poweramp What can be the problem do you think? If I plug the FH stright inte the "guitar in" on my amp or just use my amp without FH then the amp works fine but somehow the 4 cable method seem to disconnect the poweramp in my amp (or something) Thanks in advance for help and have a bjotiful x-mas Fish ps. pic is to show my setup in my ipad ds
  21. 500x + boss ME-80 + Boss OD 20 Bugera vintage V22 infinium. How should I have this set up???? ive been experimenting with a few different methods and would like some feed back and suggestions. 1. guitar>me80>OD20>500x guitar in>front input. 2. same as 1 but bypassing the the preamp of the Bugera. 3. Guitar>500x>500x FX loop SEND> ME80>OD20>500x FX Loop RETURN>Amp FX RETURN. 4. same as 3 BUT! 500x FX LOOP SEND is SPLIT! 500x FXLOOP Send 1>OD20> OD20 Send>500x Return RIGHT> / 500x Send 2>ME80 Input>ME80 output L/Mono>500x FXLoop Return L/Mono>Amp FX Return. (4 sounds the best but i hit my DSP limit :( ) ANY IDEAS????? CHEERS!

    Bleed through in helix fx loops?

    I'm assuming these 4 fx loops are not true bypass, correct? I run two overdrives for crunch and lead tones into a separate preamp, and I've been running them before the Helix with great results. The only downside is that I can't program the overdrives that way. So, I tried tossing the ODs in a loop at the start of the signal chain and the preamp in a loop for the following block. The switching works exactly how I want, but I'm getting a not-so-tolerable white hiss when playing the clean setting :( I've tried messing with noise gates, in different parts of the path even, but still no luck on getting rid of that bleed through. If somebody has a fix for this, I will give them numerous e-high fives.

    effects loop rename problem...

    Rather confused amateur here trying to name the FX Loop blocks I've put in my preset. I've searched and found answers that seem so straightforward, but I'm missing something that makes it actually work. My goal is to name the block scribble strip so I know what "FX Loop 1...2...3" each represent. Thank you so much for any help!

    Helix + Marshall JVM410H + 4CM

    Hi folks, being a newby on Helix I dare another question here. I am using the HELIX just as a multi-FX-board and as a control panel for my Marshall JVM410H. I love the amp's sound and would not have another one (as long as the Marshall won't go down. If one day it would do so, I plan to use the HELIX' DI-OUT with an alternative set-list with amp, cabinet etc. directly into the mixer). First step was to control the amp's sounds by MIDI Program change mode which worked absolutely perfectly. No need for the amp's footswitch anymore. :) Second step was using the 4CM in order to put the Wahwah at the beginning of the signal chain and delay etc. after the MARSHALL's pre-amp. I've been watching this video for instructions: https://youtu.be/Wvz3L8bJb1w Well, I've been doing as was said here, but the results were so bad, so that I had to switch back to standard send-/return (3 cables). So, maybe someone can help me with this problem, by answering a few questions: My amp has 2 effect loops, one serial (preamp out, return) and one that can be used in a serial (by putting the mix knob on 100%) or a parallel mode (mix 50%). The latter has the big advantage, that the original signal stays in the amp while the Helix (when its effect mix configured correctly) delivers just the FX signal, while the Marshall mixes the original with the Helix' FX to an optimal sound ... in theory. Now in the tutorial it says, that the amp's SERIAL FX loop should be used. Well ... is that so, that good results can get achieved ONLY with the serial FX loop? I ask, because MARSHALL does explicitely not recommend this, if you are not using hi class studio rack effects. Well, no idea, whether the HELIX qualifies as such ... ;-) I learned, that in the HELIX' preset you have to add a send/return block each. But then, there is a "fx loop" block, too. Is this the same thing as one send with the return block combined? I DID make it work, even in parallel mode by putting the delay's mix to 100% and the amp's return mix to 50%. Sounded great. Problem was: when I chose a Helix' snapshot of the same preset that has no active effects but noise gate (as I do many times for rhythm sound), there is some screeching and loud humming that I cannot explain. Even when I turn the guitars volume to total zero, there is a feedback loop somewhere and I cannot find its cause. So I have no idea, where to search. But like this, you cannot use this setting at all. Anyone any ideas? Sorry, if I repeat some questions for the hundredths time, but the forum's search routine could not find answers to my questions ... I appreciate any help, because I need the Wahwah and the delay. First one sounds crap in Send / Return, second one sounds crap in front of the Marshall ... HEEEELP! :(

    External Looper in FX Loop

    Not sure if already posted elsewhere (I couldn't find it). If I want to have more than the 20" (?) loop that the FH is capable of, or if I want to record multiple tracks and store them for future use, one solution is to use an external looper. I could put it just on the AMP Out connection and then go to my amp and it should work fine, right? But if I don't have an amp available and I normally use the headphones connected to the FH, I could connect the external looper to the FX send/return connections and have it in the FX Loop module. And now the question is: if I do so, I always have the reverb after the FX Loop, and I cannot swap them (I know that on Ideascale there is already a suggestion to let all module movable everywhere). In this case, if I record the loop with the reverb on, what happens when I start playing it? The recorded track gets "reverbered" again? And what happens if the looper is playing and I change the preset?
