  1. Hey guys I have run into a recent problem with my Spider 75 IV when trying to use the looper. Whenever I create a loop, and then switch to another channel with my FBV express (i.e. recording clean track then switching to crunch to jam), the created loop and jam track switches channels also. For example, if a record a loop on the clean red channel, then switch the the red crunch to jam, the loop switches channels also; it starts playing in crunch red. I first i Thought it might be an issue with the footboard, but it also happens when I press the channel buttons on the amp as well; the loop simply changes and plays on whatever channel i select after recording. Anyone have any solutions??? Help is much appreciated.
  2. First of all, thanks for reading. I've searched throughout this forum, youtube and google in general, but haven't found an answer to my question. Most of the posts I've seen are about MIDI sync for effects, like delay tempos. I see that in FW 2.20, a "Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo > Receive MIDI Clock" option was added to allow Helix to receive a MIDI clock, which I can see working in this youtube video. However, what I'd like to know is if the built-in looper can sync with the incoming MIDI clock. That would mean that the looper's start/stop/overdub controls would lock to the nearest incoming MIDI clock pulse, so that the recorded loop would stay perfectly in sync with MIDI. This would allow a tight integration between a loop in the Helix with other external sequenced music that was providing a MIDI clock. Other dedicated loopers such as the Pigtronix Infinity Looper, Boomerang |||, Electro-Harmonix 2880 and EHX 45000 can all do this. Does anyone know if this is possible? Can anyone connect their Helix via MIDI to an external MIDI clock generator (most MIDI-capable keyboards, sequencers and DAWs can do this) and see if the looper timing can be synced to the MIDI clock without any drift? Bonus points if there's a youtube video showing this working :D :D Not knowing this is the only thing keeping me from buying a Helix! Thanks, Cowboy
  3. Hi, I have a Spider V 60 and FBV II shortboard. I want to use the looper but playing live, the switch is too risky given it’s position at the back of the board - it is difficult to control and runs the risk of pressing a different switch accidentally. So I have been looking at adding a new external switch to control it. The basic idea was to drill a hole in the back of the bed all for a a female guitar jack socket connected to the existing switch with a footswitch plugged into the socket. When I have tried this, the switch starts the loop but about 3 seconds later, erases it. I am certain I have it soldered to the correct points on the base of the switch so could it be a different type of external footswitch is needed? Anyone tried anything like this or have any ideas on how it could work? Thanks Pete
  4. Hi gang, It seems the Helix Rack's looper can't stop playback and start a new recording whilst in playback mode unless it receives a stop-playback MIDI CC message first. It also seems the stop-playback message needs to be received 20-21ms before the start-recording message, otherwise the latter is sometimes/often not acknowledged. Is there any way to have the start-recording function override and force playback to stop? Or alternatively is there an adjustable setting that'll make the Helix process the pair of stop/start of messages quicker? I'm looking for immediacy with this so I can emulate glitching effects. Sending the two messages within 15-20ms is useable yet unreliable, and anything under 15ms registers only the stop-playback message, leaving the start-recording message overlooked. Anything above 21ms is consistently reliable, but the latency is off-putting. What are my options? Cheers! Dawes
  5. Hello All - Writing to get some expertise on an issue I'm having with the 6 button looper on the Helix (LT if it matters)... The issue is simple, and I hope there's a simple answer but I can't for the life of me figure out what happened. When engaging the six button looper that has been assigned to one of the stomp switches the looper interface used to come onto the screen and show me which foot switches were assigned to effects/rec/stop ect. But this is no longer the case... NOW when I hit the looper the foot switches will light up - like they should, showing the looper is armed, and it does work - but the screen remains on the signal chain view, and I get confused... What did I do? How do I get the looper interface to come back onto the screen!?
  6. Hello on my Helix-Floor, I would like to control the looper using an external switch. Is this possible? If yes, is there any guideline on how to connect and configure the external switch? Much appreciated
  7. Hei. I have been latelly experiencing that my jm4 is having and odd behavior. The Lcd screen suddenly shows that the volume is being moved while playing. Evenmore, it can happen while trying to hit play or stop on an overdub not allowing the action to take effect and even not allowing to record while it happens. It also happens very often, I would say with intervals of 10 to 15 secs or less but it is not a fixed time. I have come to the idea that the volume knob is damage. I am wondering if somebody else is experiencing the same problem? Eventually if this is due to the volume knob where could i posiblly get a replacement or what type of knob should i get for this equipment Thanks Jan
  8. On the Spider IV loop recording and dubbing can be controlled from the FBV Express MKII foot switch board by pressing the "A"and "B" switch simultaniously, but on the Spider V and Spider V MKII that does not work anymore .. Am i doing something wrong, or did Line 6 block this function on purpose for the Spider V series ?
  9. Does anybody know what the maximum time for the looper in the helix units is? How long can I record a riff before the capacity of the looper is reached. On the Spider IV for example it was only 60 sec.. I hope line6 hasn't saved the couple of cents this time and invested in the length of the looping. It is an important feature.
  10. https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Frippertronics-loop-block/962141-23508 This is a bit of a selfish ask, but I figured I would try... maybe some others might dig it too. I would love to see a "Frippertronics" style block in the Helix. Kind of like a looper... but not like the current looper. In my mind, this would be two independent delays, but with really long delay times - say 1 to 25 seconds each - even better is you could have the delay times listed in Bars. Each delay would be fed from the same source, but fully independent. Each delay would also have a extremely long Feedback/Decay rate, so the repeats would go on for minutes if you wanted... but without ever going into oscillation like an analog delay. There would also be a way to bypass the "input" going to the delays so you could add things to the loops, and then play over them. You could achieve this with "Tails On" kind of thing and standard bypassing the pedal. Basically... I'm looking for something like the old Elottronix XL "Frippertonics Emulator" VST from way back - https://www.kvraudio.com/product/elottronix_xl_by_elogoxa - but inside the Helix.
  11. Hi there! I am trying to customize Looper 1 switch on my Helix LT to make it more practical for me to use: press the recording (ok), then Playback (ok) and then Stop (no ok, currently it goes to Overdub and it is difficult to press Double click to stop while I'm singing and playing the guitar). I already sent my idea of modification to Line6ideascale, but reading the manual I saw the Midi CC section where you can assign the commands to other switches, I did it but they don't work. With the controller assign I could put Playback on another switch, but it doesn't stop, but Pause (it's not practical) either. Anyone used Midi CC? Thank you!!
  12. This is what the looper upgrade should have delivered - something to shout about aka the Headstrong patch update.
  13. I have a Spider V 30 amp, and now I have bought an FBV 3 foot controller, too. I notice that the FUNCTION button on the FBV 3 does absolutely nothing, and I wonder whether it should. I realize that it is intended to control the looper, which isn't there on the V 30 and the V 20 amps. Am I right that it should not do anything with my setup?!? A related question: I would love to have a looper added to my setup. Are there any recommendations out there? Thanks, Peter (from Denmark)

Note: Only SD Cards function properly; there is no support for usage of mini-flash cards with an SD Card adapter. For reference on functionality of SD card related tasks, please refer to the JM-4 Advanced User's Guide, found on the Manuals page. Application Q: How do I record from both the Guitar and Mic inputs at the same time on the JM-4 Looper? A: You can only record from either the Guitar input or the Mic/Aux input using the Record Select button on the left side of the pedal, but not both at the same time. The AUX input can be routed to be recorded in conjunction with either the Guitar input for guitar amp and effect processing, or the Mic input with the vocal processing effects by holding down the Record Select button, then selecting your routing option from the screen. Known Issues -Quick Capture = Hold the UNDO switch and then hold down REC switch (not REC + UNDO as it is silkscreened on the unit). In other words, first step on UNDO switch and keep it held down while also stepping on REC switch. -The "Clip" LED lights up upon powering up the JM-4. This is normal power-up behavior. -Some of the Artist/Song Presets from the original Spider III release were not included in the JM-4 release due to space restrictions. -The Guitar Tone Presets (70's sounds by Song Title) are simply guitar tones. They are not backing tracks. The backing tracks on the JM-4 are original compositions written and recorded by studio musicians specifically for Line 6 Spider Jam and JM-4 products. Registration & Warranty Q: How do I register my JM-4? A: You can register any Line 6 product to your account here: Registration. Q: What is the warranty on the JM-4?

    The Helix Looper

    The Looper How do I find the Looper? Most factory presets already have a Looper block, ready to go. If your preset doesn't, or you cleared all the blocks, Looper blocks can be selected from the very bottom of the Model List, below the Send/Return category. How much looping time do I get? For mono looping, Helix gives you up to 120 seconds 1/2-speed or 60 seconds full speed. There’s also a new stereo looper, which gives you 60 seconds 1/2-speed or 30 seconds full speed. Why does the Looper stop when I switch presets? Helix's looper can maintain playback and recording across presets as long as the target preset: Has the same type of looper block (mono or stereo) Has the looper block on the same path (1 or 2) Has the looper block assigned to a footswitch Otherwise, loop recording/playback will stop. Basic Looper Usage Helix can add one mono or stereo Looper block per preset. The Looper can exist anywhere on either Path 1 or Path 2. See Looper Footswitch Mode for information on using the Looper. Using a Dual signal path: Keep in mind that the looper is only available for one signal path at a time. So if you're using a second signal path, you will noticed a significant drop in volume, since the looper is only on one path. Looper Settings Knob Parameter Description 1 Playback: Adjusts looper playback level. You may find it useful to turn this down a bit so your live guitar can be slightly louder. 2 Overdub:Sets the level of your loop while overdubbing. For example, if your Overdub Level is set to 90%, each time your loop repeats, its volume will be reduced by 10%, sounding quieter and quieter with each overdub pass. 3 Low Cut and Low Cut: Filters a portion of the loop's bass and/or treble frequencies, which can improve the mix with your live guitar. For more information check out the manual here.
  16. Hi, I noticed that when I record a loop (single layer), the volume of its playback drops quite a lot compared with anything I play on it (even not overdubbing another loop on it), or compared to the volume when I recorded it. I think it was like that also in the HD500, but not this bad. This happens when in the looper (mono looper) settings I have "playback" and "overdub" at 0 dB, and the low/high cuts are at 20Hz/20kHz. Is there any way to increase the volume of the playback (and not the volume of what I play over it....)? Thanks!
  17. Can we have the 6 switch looper in the HX Stomp in the next update? I just want to use some of the features, like the 1/2 speed and reverse.
  18. Can the looper be Midi controlled to start and stop recording? I've been writing some tunes that for live use I could really use a the looper on the helix but we play with a click and I've been working on midi clocking my preset for the set list and it got me thinking if I could set it up loops to match up with the click.
  19. Hi all, I'm hoping someone can give me some guidance on how I can use my Helix with an external looper (Boss RC-3, for example)? I am not using an amp. My Helix goes to my studio monitors. Where in the chain do I put the RC-3? I just got my Helix and am really loving it. I just don't know how to use my RC-3 with it. Thanks! -Michael
  20. I'm having trouble with the basic set up of the one switch looper on the stomp. Having reset to factory settings, I add the looper to an empty preset and assign a controller to FS2 using the Learn function. When operating FS2 in the edit mode Playbk switches between 0.0db and -60.0db In performance mode the looper displays as Playbk and operating FS2 simply changes it from enabled to disabled. None of the looper behaviour is invoked (red light to record, etc.). It's almost like the pedal isn't being recognized as a looper and is just having its Playbk parameter assigned to FS2. This is with the latest 2.71 Firmware. I hoping this is some very basic misunderstanding on my part. :-) Edit: Figured this out. You have to follow the instructions about assigning the controls for the Looper to the letter. If you don't quick assign the looper but attempt to do it manually using the control assign menu you will just end up assigning one of the looper's parameters to the foot switch and it won't function as a looper.
  21. Hi, Bonjour, How can I connect my Boss RC-30 Loop Station to the Spider V 240HC ? On my FENDER MUSTANG III Amp it is simple, but on my SPIDER V I cannot find a functionnal connecting. I tried with the Aux IN and a RFX out but the sound is very very noisy. Is anybody has found to connect an external looper to this AMP ? Thank you for your help ... Merci pour votre assistance ... Roland
  22. Hi all. I am new on here but I am desperate for some help. Basically can you add extra footswitches to the helix? I want to be able to control the looper and maybe a couple of stomp effects from a different location to the helix (just a few feet away) Is there a pedal that can do this please? Many thanks Richard
  23. Quick question: will looper work on HD PRO X with EXPRESS MKII footswitch? The manual for POD says that only shortboard or longboard enable looper mode, but perhaps it's not up to date? Regards
  24. Could you add the 1-click-looper to a preset and have it turned off in all but one of 8 snapshots? If not assigned to a footswitch then I guess you might not see the color changes as it goes from recording to overdub to playback etc.
  25. Hi guys Just got my 240c yesterday. Really impressed so far but scratching my head over the looper. Is there an auto start feature with the onboard looper? Physically pressing the panel button to initialise the looper seems rather pointless, so I’m guessing there is? If not, I’m hoping this could be implemented in a future update. My old trusty cube80xl has a handy auto start looper option. Simply long press the loop button, the button flashes rapidly waiting for an input signal, once you start playing it starts recording the loop. Everything after this behaves as is. I wasn’t planning on buying the optional floorboard.
