Does anyone else have the issue of glitchy unreliable footswitches on the Helix? I've had two units The first had 4 unreliable foot switches after a month of use at home.. And after 6 months or so the joystick failed totally so the store got me a new unit. That one now has 2 unreliable footswitches... problably more to come. I'm really taking good care of the unit, so I'm left to think there is a general quality issue with these footswitches. However Line6 Support tells me otherwise: Hi there, sorry for the trouble with your Helix. The defective switch needs to be replaced by our service center. Therefore please contact your Line 6 reseller from where you've purchased the unit - or alternatively you have the option to contact our Danish service center directly: Highend Skjulhöjalle 57 Vanløse, 2720 +4538711114 email@example.com We haven't received many requests regarding footswitch failures and the repair should solve the issue. Nonetheless I will pass along this information to the product teams, so they can look into it. Best regards xxxxx Technical Support Line 6 Support Europe And I don't really want to pay for repairs of a lollipop quality component, in an otherwise nice product.. Am I really one of few having this issue?
Anyone knows how it works? Never mind... I finally stumbled on this site. So until the manual gets updated, this site will likely have the info for the new effects! https://dshowmusic.com/line-6-helix-effect-models/ Or yeah would also be in the Helix manual... Should have thought about that lol Glitch Delay Mono, Stereo Line 6 Original Performance delay that lets you freely manipulate the repeats’ behavior in real time Time—Sets the delay time; press the knob to toggle between ms/sec and note values Delay Div—Divides the delay time into smaller increments Mix—Controls the wet/dry mix of the delay. When set to 0%, no delay is heard; when set to 100%, no dry signal is heard Feedback—Controls the overall number of repeats heard for the entire sequence SliceFdbk—Controls the number of repeats heard for individual slices. At higher values, you could call this “Super Chaotic Feedback” Shuffle—Determines the likelihood of repeats shuffling/reordering Octaves—Determines the likelihood of repeats playing back an octave higher or lower Reverse—Determines the likelihood of repeats playing backwards Seq Drift—Determines the likelihood of the entire sequence changing every time it loops around. When set to 0%, the same sequence loops forever. TIP: Assign this parameter to a footswitch set to toggle between a higher number and 0%. If you hear a random sequence you want to maintain, press the switch to set Seq Drift to 0%, and it’ll repeat that way indefinitely Smoothing—Higher values apply smoothing between slices and can give a synth-pad type quality, lower values maintain transients. Or set it just high enough to avoid pops and clicks Trails—When on, delay repeats continue to ring out after the block is bypassed Btw, for having tried it a bit, the Delay Div does seem to 'often' introduce a bit of 'clipping' sounds; when they're reversed or whatever, but maybe it could be smoothing... Or, maybe I was just using too many delay divs given the time, anyway, will experiment more, as I probably experimented with some bad settings. Very fun delay! :D
Hey all, I have a Variax 300 given to me by my friend who was no longer using it. Came without a power supply and it drained batteries super quickly so I bought a second hand XPS Mini to power it. I've been using it for a week now and it works, however, I find that when I select some of the guitar 'types' the sound comes out glitchy. If I let a note play out it'll warp (sort of turning off and on again but in a strange way). Curiously this only seems to happen on the t-model, spank, lester and occasionally special modes. Anyone have any experience or advice for this? I can play without them but it cuts down the functionality of the guitar. I do not have access to a USB interface so flashing is not currently possible.
