  1. Hi, ive just got a brand new Hx effects and used it for 30 mins and now all the menu buttons at the top have stopped working. I had updated it to the newest firmware before using it and I’ve also done a factory reset. is there something I’m missing or you reckon it’s broken?
  2. I've been using my HX Effects live quite a bit and love it. The modulation and delay effects are pristine. No noise and they just do what they are supposed to. The distortion/overdrive patches have a huge 60 cycle hum. I had a similar problem on the same board with my old M5, but it wasn't quite as loud. Before I jump into the great ground loop rabbit hole, could the placement on my board be the issue? Here's how it's set up: Dunlop volume pedal > Vox Wah > Xotic BB+ > Vertex UltraPhonix > HX Effects > to amp Could that chain cause the problem? Right now, I use it a lot with a TrueTone OneSpot power supply. I've tried reversing polarity (unplug & replug swapped 180) and it doesn't help. I have heard, recently, an Ebtech hum eliminator will help, but have yet to try that. I also have a PedalSnake set up to run it when I have the time to set that up. The power supply is similar, but from another manufacturer. I use the same power supply from my rack thru the PedalSnake. Same issues. Overdrive & distortion patches have hum... nothing else does. I have not modified the output volumes, so they are as when it came out of the box. Thanks in advance.
  3. I created a bunch of patches for an upcoming gig (first time live with the HX FX). Some patches are merely a clean sound with a compressor, others add a pitch shifter to that, and yet others are more complex with a Fuzz, Overdrive and Distortion. As most of the individual effects have one or more parameters to set their individual volume (or level or drive), not all effects have the same overall volume level. I want to save the sound engineer from a heart attack each time i change presets so i was wondering if there's an easy way to set the same output volume for all those patches. Now i attempt to balance the parameters of the different effects separately, but i'm afraid it's not good enough like that. Any suggestions? TIA PS this is for an active bass guitar, and I don't use any expression pedals.
  4. Hi everybody. As I've mentioned in the title of this topic, after the last update of my Hx Effects unit I cannot download any of the customtone patchs and the following message appears in HX Edit - Failed to import setlist file (invalid or unrecognized file (code -8101). Anyone who knows where is the problem...?
  5. My Helix is my main MIDI controller and my HX Effects is on MIDI channel 1. I'm trying to get the Helix and the HX Effect's snapshots to coordinate. I can set the CC 69 messages to change the HX Effect's snapshots on the Helix's stomp switches that works fine. But if I try to set them to the Instant slots (so they send with the snapshot change), the HX Effects seems to ignore the CC messages. Any ideas on how to resolve this?
  6. Hi people, I've recently added a Boss Sy-1 synth pedal to my setup, and I'm trying to send it out to a separate speaker. I have my amp running in 4CM. I'm then using the HX send 1 > Boss input > Boss output > to PA speaker. The problem I'm having is that I'm using the Send 1/2 on Path B, so I can add effects to the synth separately. But when I add a reverb, delay, etc, the reverb on Path B comes through my amps signal. I've panned Path A hard left, and Path B hard right on the merge mixer, yet the effect on Path B still bleeds to the other path. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

  8. Anyone have any slick tricks for doing a boosted lead channel, when using a hi gain tube amp with lots of gain on the rhythm patch? Basically looking for the best way to keep the same basic sound as my rhythm, but boost the crap out of the volume for solos... E
  9. I'm curious if anyone has tried using the effects from a POD HD500X into an HX Stomp? I seem to remember that the POD had pretty good effects overall. I have one sitting around collecting dust and you can't get much for them on Reverb. I guess it would be a poor man's HX Effects and if it works it would help out with the DSP. Any settings adjustments needed from using it straight into an amp?
  10. Hello Line 6 Collaborative Community! Got an HX EFFECTS Windows 10 64bit 32Gbs RAM Last June 2021 I, tried to use FX Edit - but kept getting error -8212. Wouldn't load the patches to edit - I could see the patch names though... Support said to upgrade FW to 2.82? but couldn't get HX Updater to back up my patches - kept having errors. I did it anyway... Still couldn't get HX Edit to load my patches - same error -8212. Support said I needed to factory reset my system. Didn't have the heart to lose my patches, so I left it alone. Tried again this week (June 2022) - same problem, but I upgraded the FW to 3.15 - same -8212 error code Decided to bite the bullet and reset the system to factory (Power On+ FS6 + Tuner) - watched it reset and watched my patches GO BYE BYE STILL GOT THE SAME ERROR -8212 Any ideas or solutions that other folks have found? Thanks in advance
  11. Hi All. First post here. Have read lots of good stuff on here since buying my HX a month or so ago. I do love it and don't miss my Boss ES-5 setup with Mobius and other assorted pedals at all! I'm pretty good with MIDI (from my 90's days when all my synths/effects were outboard!) but have some observations and thoughts on MIDI instant command/Snapshot/Preset interactions that I'd be interested in feedback on. To my mind, it should (logically) work thus (and I'm only dealing with PC messages here...): In Preset mode, you set up your MIDI messages using the Instants in the Command Centre. These would be the default MIDI messages for the whole preset. Within a snapshot, you should be able to change the instant, or have it default to the ‘Preset’ one set up above either by having no instant at all, or a "preset default" option. I use Midi (for my H9 and Elektron Analog Drive) and snapshots (I use one preset per song and the snapshots for the different sounds within a song) and it doesn’t seem to work in a consistent way for me. For instance : I set up one snapshot as a default for a song and copy the snapshot to make changes for different sections. The Instants do not copy across. If I remove an instant from a snapshot (as the snapshot doesn't need to change any MIDI values) the Instant MIDI command is removed totally across all snapshots and the preset. I'm quite sure this is just me not fully understanding how Instants and Snapshots interact! Anyone got any definitive answers on how Snapshot Instant’s work. I’ve fudged my way through (checking each snapshot’s Instant values) and have the unit setup as I want now but would like to now the official line on how it is supposed to work for future programming. Ta, David.
  12. I am considering buying an HX Effects that I would like to connect to my amp using the 4-cable method. Reading through user reviews, some complain about tone degradation and noise issues, particularly when using a 'hot' preamp in a loop of the HX Effects. I also noticed that most of these critical reviews were from 2018/2019, shortly after the unit was introduced. Have these issues been mitigated in the meantime? Are there still noise / tone degradation issues with 2022 units and firmware?
  13. I am considering buying a HX Effects unit for use with a Mesa Boogie Mk IV using the 4-cable method, an I need some pre-sales advice. Currently I'm using a Lexicon MPX-G2 multi-effects processor that sits in a rack immediately underneath the amp so that all connecting cables have lengths of 1 m or less - that works fine. Since the HX Effects is a floor unit, I am a bit concerned about what will happen to my tone when cables become longer, as they inevitably will. Since I assume that many of you will be in the same boat with me, what is your experience? (How much / in how far) does this affect the tone of the guitar? Is there audible degradation in terms of dynamics or 'richness'? I am particularly concerned with the pre-gain part of the circuit, i.e., with the cable that goes from the HX Effects Send to the input of the amp are there noise issues to be expected, and how do you deal with them? Is an (external) buffer needed, or is there a buffer already built into the HX Effects? What types / lengths of cables have you been using successfully in this setting? Maybe a bit off my own topic: Which expression pedals (except those from Line 6) work well with the unit? Which pot impedance should be used? Specifically, has anyone got experience with the Ernie Ball VP pedals together with the HX Effects?
  14. Hello. I`m new in this Line6 universe. Just bought a HX Effects with the firmwire 2.51. Now I want to update to the newest version 2.82. I have downloaded HX Edit and Line6 Updater to my pc. Now, when I run the Updater a black screen appears with a writing says: “Select device to update”. And no options.? I have the device turned on and conneted with usb cable. Can anyone help me? Jakob, Denmark
  15. Hi...I noticed for the first time today that my #1 parameter knob (HX FX) will not let me change values. It I press it it goes to learn mode, but it has no effect when just using it in rotary fashion. I don't think I changed anything; if I did it was by accident. I updated to 3.01 back in December. Any ideas? Thanks, Jeff
  16. Bonjour, Je lance une bouteille à la mer ? Suite à ma recherche pour controler les canaux de ma tête Laney Ironheart via le HX effects j'ai finalement décidé d'acheter le "Voodoo Lab control switcher" qui me parait la solution la plus confortable. Pour info je me suis renseigné auprès de Voodoo Lab (échanges de mails) et on m'a bien dit que je ne devrais pas avoir de problèmes pour controler ma tête avec le switcher et le HX Effects. Chose importante : l'entrée footswitch de ma tête d'ampli est un "DIN 5 Pins" mais en aucun cas une entrée midi. laney J'ai donc commencé à connecter tout le matos, et la première étape est ok ! : Le "Voodoo lab" arrive bien à faire switcher les canaux de la tête d'ampli via la sortie MULTI (DIN 5 Pins également) quand j'appuie sur les boutons de devant : voodoo [/img] Mon problème est que je n'arrive pas à envoyer le signal midi du "HX Effects" vers le "Voodoo lab". Dans "Command center" du HX Effects je ne sais pas si il faut que j'utilise MIDI CC ? ou Bank PC ? Il faut que j'utilise "Instant 1-2-3-4-5-6" ou "Footswich 1-2-3-4-5-6" ? Et ensuite comment envoyer le signal ? Midi ch, CC# etc... ? Quel numéros ? J'ai vu dans le manuel du voodoo lab qu'il y des canaux CC# 80-83, 84-87 etc.. mais je n'y pompe rien, de plus il n'y à la le numéro "value". J'en ai vu certains qui utilisaient des "Snapshots" pour faire changer les canaux de leur ampli et je n'arrive pas à comprendre à quoi cela sert vraiment. Bref, j'ai essayé plein de combinaisons mais je n'ai pas réussi à envoyer de signal Midi vers le Voodoo Lab. Pour info, j'ai bouffé plein de vidéos youtube (pas trouvé ma config) ainsi que des recherches google à n'en plus finir mais impossible de trouver la solution (et je ne pige pas grand chose en ce qui concerne le MIDI du HX)... J'ai également lu le manuel du HX et du Voodo Lab mais rien n'y fait. Je ne comprend pas bien les "snapshots" et les "instants". Un énorme merci d'avance si quelqu'un s'y connait au niveau du midi du HX effect et peu m'aider à trouver une solution Ma config et les manuels : - Ampli Laney Ironheart 60 : https://manuals.laney.co.uk/IRT120H_IRT60H_Manual_ML.pdf - Line 6 HX Effects : https://line6.com/data/6/0a020a3d3f355a6a18827952c/application/pdf/HX%20Effects%202.50%20Owners%20Manual%20-%20French%20.pdf - Voodoo Lab control switcher : http://www.voodoolab.com/manuals/control_switcher_v1_manual.pdf La chaine avec les cables midi : 1er cable midi : Sortie midi du HX effect => dans le IN Midi du Voodoo control switcher. 2ème cable midi : Sortie MULTI Voodoo lab entrée (5 pins également) => Sortie de la tête d'ampli DIN 5 pins. Merci d'avance !
  17. After a year of being frustrated between my love of my HX FX and my annoyance with a board that was over sized to accommodate varying power supplies, I discovered that the True Tone 1 Spot Pro CS6 will power the HX FX. Previously I was using the same pedals as shown below, but on a Pedaltrain PT-1 with a rat's nest of splitters and short extension cords below to cope with plug blades in 2 orientations (you can't plug the adapter from the MXR supply and the Line 6 into the same strip and put it under the board. So now I have my HX and a few choice pedals on a Pedaltrain METRO 20! The power supply fits under the board, doesn't require a voltage doubler, and the CS6 comes with all of the cables you need (Line 6 and polarity reversal; the L6 plug switches polarity, but you have to switch it back on the HX). So good. Truetone's website says that it will work because it's a different kind of PSU (I think it's switching instead of transformers, you can look up the video for their explanation). While the port says 500 mA, it will allow the unit to draw more. They have to list a rating for testing and approval to sell it, but it will allow the HX to draw what it needs. Been using it about a month. No heat issues, no quirky behaviors. So happy to have a nice small rig now.
  18. dear community, I would urgently need instructions on how to switch the channels on my Marshall JVM 410 using individual presets of the HX Effects. Thank you in advance ;)
  19. Hello, In a stereo setup, I need to use mono effects on one side only. Let's say this last position reverb : The only option I found is this one, but I have to use one normal output and one send output, that seems strange to me, with opposite pan. Nevertheless, the stereo effects works normally and this last reverb is only on one amp. Is there a way to modify the outputs to set two "Main L/R" and then balanced them in their settings ? Thanks a lot.
  20. Unfortunately the new HX Edit cannot import patches built for the Helix Floor. The only way is to edit the hlx files. I think I will implement a software utility to help the user in this modification and to convert the hlx files from Helix FL to HX Effects. Someone wants to join?
  21. I have an HX Effects and I'm looking for a way to use one expression pedal to control both wah and whammy, and to be able to switch between them, without using one of the 6 assignable footswitches (because they are already assigned to other things). I understand now that HX Effects doesn't support an external footswitch (only external pedals) - pity, it would have solved my problem! So I have the following idea - has anyone ever tried it?: - Both wah and whammy in the signal path, both on, assigned to exp pedals 1 and 2. - Using an A/B switch, connect exp pedal 1 output to A and exp pedal 2 output to B. Output from A/B switch to the one expression pedal. Would that work? Any advice welcome!
  22. I have happily been using my HX Effects every week for the last 2 years. Today the display started playing up. I am greeted with white noise on the scribble strips during boot up about 50% of the time, and odd graphical corruption on an intermittent basis. I've fully reset and restored my backup several times; this hasn't fixed it unfortunately. Has anyone got any insight into what may be causing this? Otherwise the pedal works fine and I even played live with it today and used the tuner despite not being able to see the screen. The power supply I've been using for the last 2 years is a Voodolabs Pedal Power Digital. Unfortunately I bought a discounted HX Effects that didn't come with a power supply so I can't swap it out. I am willing to purchase a Line 6 DC-3H but would appreciate any feedback first in case this is a waste of money and the corrupted display is a sign of permanent damage. Many thanks.
  23. Is it possible for me to control the snapshots on the Hx stomp via midi from the Hx effects? For example, If im on preset 1a snapshot 1 for both the stomp and FX, if i were to switch to snapshot 2 on the FX is there a way to get the HX Stomp to go to snapshot 2 as well with just the one click of the FX?
  24. Hi. I am using my HX effects unit to switch channels and FX loop on my Marshall DSL20 head. It has a TRS cable foot switch. The tip switches the channel and the ring switches the FX loop. I’ve successfully got it to do all the switching, however I’ve found the amp is expecting the reverse of the signal from the HX effects. Meaning that when the ring is NOT shorted to the sleeve, the FX loop is on, and when the tip is NOT shorted to the sleeve the ultra gain channel is on. This means the lights and logic on the HX effects are doing the reverse of what you’d expect based on the amp. Is there any way to reverse the logic of the ext amp outputs so that when I activate the switch the TRS cable is “un-shorted”, or alternatively to have an LED change colour instead of dimming when a switch is bypassed. Currently I’ve got it set up as snapshots to avoid the problem, but that’s a bit of a pain because I need 4 switches instead of 2 to cover all the combinations.
  25. Hi all, Ive seen some info on this pedal but I just wanted to find out if the expression pedal toe switch will work on the HX effects unit?? If not I might as well get one of the Nektar ones or something similar? Just wondering what peoples set ups are for using the hx effects with expression pedals, would love to use the toe switch but doesnt seem like Its possible??
