Using my less than a month old JTV-69 the other day through the magnetic pickups, without modeling, I noticed that all the treble was gone. Turned on modelling to Lester and sound was great. All modeled tones sound great, but magnetics sounded dead. When I remove and re-insert the TRS cable to restart the guitar, the treble would temporarily return to the mags, but would fade after a few seconds. I called Line 6 and they had no clue. I called a local guy and he asked how I was connected. That was when I remembered the night before I was using without the AB box and the mags sounded fine. Over the last couple of days, when using without the AB box mags are fine, but with the XPS, they are dead. I have replaced the TRS cable on the XPS and tried it with and wothout the XLR connected, same result. Any one else using the XPS box experience such a thing? I am wondering if replacing the box will fix or if the box is only meant to be used for modeling tones only??
Guitar Input Impedance Settings
billdutcher posted a topic in HelixCan anyone elaborate on the Guitar Input Impedance setting on the Global Settings page? Under Global Settings, Ins/Outs, Guitar Impedance, I've got it set to Auto. Does anyone know what this setting detects and how? I'm running a Sunrise Magnetic pickup and a LR Baggs iBeam transducer, both running into a LR Baggs iMix internal preamp, in my acoustic guitar. I'm using a stereo Y-cable, running the Sunrise into the guitar input and the iBeam into the Aux input of the Helix. I know the Sunrise pickup has an output of 2.0K - 2.2K Ohm output. I'm not sure what the output is when running through the iMix preamp...searched online, can't find any specs on the iMix. Thanks! Bill
