Hi All, I'm new to using Amp models and IRs. I own a HX Stomp and i'm crazy about it. I've purchased some IRs from Celestion and Own Hammer and have used them with the amp sims that come with HX Stomp. They sound amazing. I'm very happy. My question is regarding the settings when importing IRs. I see there are two slots one labeled 1024 and the other for 2048. Also, the IR files that I have come in a variety of kHz, ms and Bit rate formats. For example, in my Celestion pack there is a choice of importing 200 ms files vs 500 ms files and within those folders, there are several options for kHz and Bit rates. I read page 27 of the HX Stomp Users Manual that states: "HX Edit updates the HX Stomp hardware's IR list automatically. HX Stomp can load and store up to 128 IRs at a time. 48kHz, 16-bit, mono, .WAV type IRs of up to 2,048 samples are natively supported; however, HX Edit lets you import IR .WAV files of different sample rate, bit depth, length and stereo format, and the app will convert these attributes automatically before sending to HX Stomp". -and- "The imported IR is automatically shortened (or lengthened) to 2,048 samples.You may optionally choose a 1,024-sample version from the model list to save DSP, which fades out the IR halfway through". Ok so, this may sound like stupid questions but like I said earlier, I'm new to all this and don't quite understand what Line 6 is saying. Can someone school me on what all this means and how I should select the IR files for importing to my HX Stomp and how it could effect my tone? Thank you.
Hi Fellow HX stomp/Helix users! I'm a newbie and quite confused re how to use my HX STOMP live - straight to the PA as my rig (stand alone) I have some questions! Other than using the stereo outputs at the back, where I simply connect one to each speaker using a TRS/guitar jack...one each for left and right....Is there something else I need to do to make sure I'm getting the best 'true' stereo signal? Any particular settings within the stomp itself I need to change? For each preset so far I've gone in to global settings and made sure the output level is 'line' not 'mic' but its mono . Is there anything else I can do? I have a couple of amazing EV speakers but so far the guitar tone isn't fantastic, some of the presets sound better in headphones. I discovered IR's - which I think is my answer to a more realistic tone. I've been able to start making a few custom presets but I've just seen a video of one of the clever guys talking about IR's instead of using the existing cab models. He split the signal by the looks and uses 2 IR's. (???!!) Is that what I need to do to create a true stereo signal for my guitar? To make it also sound more 'real'? Any tips at all I would really appreciate. I have my first gig with it soon and I'm overwhelmed and confused!!! Many thanks all!
Hi All, I just got my Helix floor for Christmas. Iâ€™m migrating from my old HD-500. During install in my system, During install of the Helix control software I was prompted to install an update from 221 to 230. I followed the instructions and backed up my Helix, then performed the update...after the update, I reinstalled the backup. Iâ€™m not seeing any impulse responses listed...have I lost whatever came with the unit ? If there were any they didnâ€™t seem to be reinstalled... Am I missing something here ? Iâ€™m not really familiar with the unit yet...but so far, I love what I hear :j Mike C
