"auto-calibration" doesn't work at all. I read somewhere that manual calibration was removed at some point early in the firmware lifecycle, a glaring mistake in my opinion. The Helix doesn't give me consistent EXP operation. I have four pedals: Roland EV5, Yamaha EP1, Ensoniq CVP1 and EHX Next Step EXP â€”none of them work, all of them are inconsistent. The Roland only covered a span of 50% at the full heel to toe range. the Yamaha goes from 0% to 100% to 11%, the Ensoniq goes from 0 to 100% to 0% in a single sweep. I went and researched how these pots work to try and hypothesise why the Helix glitched with TRS pedals of varied brands. I own a BOSS GT8 and it simply works with all of them. What bothers me the most is that the Ensoniq and Yamaha did work properly on the HD500X. One of the reasons I upgraded to the Helix was the possibility of using two external expression pedals, hence the disappointment when they didn't work. The EHX EXP pedal I mentioned didn't work with either the Pod or Helix. EDIT: I avoided expensive and heavy iron cast pedals like the Mission Engineering EP1, or the Ernie Ball that use a fragile cord to crank the pot. I purposely use plastic options because they are lightweight. EHX released a conventional passive expression pedal this past July and M-Audio sell the EX-P pedal which offers a linear and CW/CCW switch that make it compatible. scroll down for a practical solution to avoid modding to use on the Helix and fix the dreaded forward-backward glitch.
Hey gang! Ran into a weird issue when connecting the HD500(X) with a DT50 using the L6 Link. The display would flash the "knob settings screen" and lock-out operation of the knobs and buttons. Initially, I kind of cured it by reconnecting the link after changing the Setup, Page 1 - AMP/KNOBS DISPLAY to "Momentary: OFF." Then I noticed my HD500 presence knob operation was erratic, but if I used the DT50 presence knob instead, it was fine. Did some more investigating and here's what I discovered, purely through trial and error. Why it happened and the fix: In Setup, Page 1, (press and hold "View"), I had set the footswitch mode (FS Mode) from "ABCD" to "5-8" so that I could run multiple effects and turn each of them on/off with a dedicated footswitch. My DT50 didn't like that when using the L6 Link. I had to disconnect the L6 Link cable to get the buttons and knobs to respond again. I changed the footswitch mode back to "ABCD", reconnected the L6 Link and everything worked fine, This one took me some time to figure out, so I thought I'd pass it along for anyone else with the same issue. I let Line 6 know and suggested a software update so that we control freaks can run 8 dedicated footswitches when using the L6 Link. Ha!
Hi folks, I have a Bass Pox xt which I am using via USB with Ableton Live 9. When I use the Pod ASIO settings, I am getting some bad white noise / distortion sounds when I am playing loops. Its infrequent and cuts in randomly over the audio. The bizarre thing is, I have a second PC, a laptop - where I have created the same environment where I get no distortion. Thing is, I really want to use my desktop. No matter what I do with the audio settings, buffers etc, I get the exact same distortion - There is no CPU overhead as it will do so with just one looped drum sample - I cant even jam to a drum machine. Anyone had similar issues? Cliff
mbadenpowell posted a topic in Bass POD / Bass PODxtHi everyone, I wondered if anyone else has encountered this issue the bass podxt pro. I am currently using it as a digital effects unit in logic pro 9, via my spdif in and out on my focusrite pro 14 interface. Essentially when you use the external insert effect plug in when you send the bass pod a stereo or mono signal, it returns it in stereo with the left channel effected by the bass pod, and the right channel without. Is this supposed to happen? However, when I plug the bass pod via usb, and still use the focusrite as the audio interface, it returns the stereo send, this time as a mono return. None of this is mentioned in the manual (obviously), and havent found any other posts on the forum about it. What you have encountered? Is this supposed to happen? And is there a way to fix this, other than within logic (which is a pain in the back-side)? I need my usb port free for hard drives! Thanks for reading, Matt
