  1. Just wondering if anyone has tried to use the headphone out connected to a bluetooth transmitter like this: Amazon.com: Bluetooth Tranismitter Then, simply pair it up to your Bluetooth headphones and you have a cheap on-stage/rehearsal in ear monitor for yourself? Would that work?!? **EDIT** I found a solution that works for me, see my detailed reply below

    Helix LT for live Bass

    Good day! Just thought I'd share my experience... First, bass amp models sound much better after tweaking. Anything to "tighten up" the sound, like the sag and mic distance. Second, two paths sound better than one; flattens up your tone. Third, dialing in a tone as close to live volume through my home pa gets me closest to what it will sound like live through the fronts, but headphones get you close. Usually I am asked to turn down the lows a bit, if anything. I went live for a show with a loud drummer (godsmack tribute) and ONLY a Peavey DM115 (no back line). I managed, but it didn't cut it. Not loud enough, and no subtleties came through. Guitar players seem to have no trouble with the same set up, but most sound guys don't seem to fully understand modelers, and that we are trying to avoid being at their mercy for monitor volume. This is less of an issue in larger clubs with larger PAs and good sound guys. Best sound I get now is backlining with my mark bass tube 800 through a single 4x10. I use the helix in front of it, replacing my tried and true, and hard to beat, ME 50B, for volume, tuner, compressor, effects. Honestly, I haven't figured out how to make it sound as crisp and clean as the me-50b, but it's close. Now here's the thing, I run a completely different rig to the front of house. Usually the Hartke with the 8x10. Lots of compliments, and I can hear over the rest of band. I have not yet found a monitor that is loud enough for me to go without the back line. I'm about to get a QSC power amp and Yamaha 12 inch monitors. I'm hoping that's going to work out. As much as I would like to walk in with just a combo amp, my situation requires serious volume, and I can't only bring one amp and hope it doesn't blow. Lastly, my mark rig with the ME 50B, is very portable, and sounds better than most rigs to my ear. I bring an extra head with me just in case and I actually run two 4 by 10s. But I don't get all the bells and whistles I get with the helix. That's where I'm at! I didn't see anyone else posting about playing bass through the helix to the extent that I'm trying to. Comments and suggestions are welcome!
  3. I am having a frustrating time with my Helix. I have a set of Rokit KRK headphones and my patches sound great through these headphones - lots of clarity/detail in the amp modelling etc. When I hook up my studio monitors - Rokit 6 KRK's - the resulting sound has far more less clarity/and sounds a bit dull to my ears. Anyone else had similar problems, I have looked on the forum and most people have the opposite problem ie Helix sounds great through monitors but bad through headphones. Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hello, new pod owner here. Upgraded from GT-10 to pod HD500x. I've had my HD for 2 weeks now and have downloaded and constructed a few patches using my headphones. When i play thru my monitors, my patches sound the same regardless of what amp sim I use. The tones sound muddy and thick. (to much bass.) Last night my wife was listening and told me my speakers sound like they have a towel draped over them. I turned the bass down on the unit itself and no change. Turned the tone knob up, no change. All i could do was laugh and make fun of my new piece of expensive gear I begged to purchase. Then I started started twisting the master volume nob clock wise and counter. Back and forth, back and forth increasing and decreasing my patch level. Suddenly the sound woke up no more bass or mud in that particular patch. I haven't tried this technique on any of the other patches yet. What gives? Does anyone else have this problem?

    what speakers for helix at home

    I just bough a helix LT. it should be here tomorrow... also, assuming it would work, I bought a pair of Presonus Eris 4.5 monitors. later after thinking about it more, and studying the inputs of the speakers, I'm wondering if I made a poor choice. what are you using for home practice+setting up your patches? budget is $300 MAX (I have a helix to pay off ;) ) I mainly play at home, but I also play with the church on the weekends... the idea is set my patches up at home for live use. some ideas that I have kicked about: Laney IRT-X a PA speaker like the Alto TS112 or TS110 Behringer EuroLive Pa speaker (surely not the best, but the same we use at church, this way home sound could be easily matched to church) pair of studio monitors with XLR (this was the thinng I thought I was getting with the presonus eris... but the ones I ordered do not have XLR, so I'm wondering if the patches would require tweaking to go from studio to live) I can also bypass the cab IR, and run into the return on my tube amp, through a 1x12... but same thing as the studio monitors without XLR, I'd have to tweak, and turn on a cab IR for live. what other budget-minded options are there for home? am I sweating the output selection too much?
  6. Hi there, I intend to buy a Helix Rack which I would like to use as my sole audio interface at home. To Helix I will connect two Yamaha HS7s and a PA speaker - Alto TS 215W. Here's what I would like to know: 1. Would it be possible to force Helix Rack to have system audio playback (Youtube, guitar pro, etc.) come only through my monitors (no Helix-processed intrument sound coming through them) and Helix-processed bass guitar sound coming from the Alto when practicing playing bass (alternatively together with audio playback)? 2. Would I need to have an additional USB interface (e.g. Focusrite) for this purpose? 3. Would Helix LT suffice to do what Helix Rack can?

    Getting started with Helix!

    Good morning all! Apologies for entering the forum with a post that has probably been repeated many times before but it gives me a chance to introduce myself... I'm Chris, a predominantly bedroom guitarist who ventures out once a month to a local jam night. I've taken the plunge and ordered a Helix after finding an amazing deal. I've play with a few demo units in some local stores so don't have any anxiety around navigation of the device, but as someone who mainly just plugs into an amp via a few pedals, I'm a bit uncertain regarding the additional options for listening to the output of the Helix (at home). I think that the options are largely: 1. Studio monitors 2. Via headphones for near-silent practice 3. FRFR active monitor 4. Amplifier (fx return or front-end) I'd like your advice mainly about option 1 as this looks like a good link into DAWS and home recording. So.... What's the best way to connect Helix to monitors? XLR or 1/4"? Do I need to / should I go through an audio interface? Do I need to hook up to a computer or can I just go directly to the monitors? I currently only have a MacBook Air but will probably buy an iMac later this year. I appreciate that I'll need the computer attached if recording, but as I only have a laptop and use that for work other things, it doesn't have much storage capacity and I like to keep my set-up as simple as possible - i.e. plug and play. Thank you in advance! Cheers, Chris
  8. I was playing guitar a few year ago and recently have decided to start playing again. Have ordered POD HD500X yesterday! Mainly going to play alone or with backtracks playing from phone or computer connected to POD HD500X. Maybe in future will also buy an electric piano to play together with my wife from time to time :) I'm stuck with choosing an output device to buy. I'd like to spend no more than $350. First question: combo or pair of monitors? With monitors I can get stereo sound and I heard there are some effects which use stereo, but I'm not sure I really need this... Second question: which particular model to choose in the price range? Here are some options and my thoughts about them. Please note, I didn't try any of these amplifiers and monitors. Combo amps: * Fender Mustang II V2 40-Watt 1x12-Inch, $200. Lots of good feedback on this series on reddit. Looks like plenty of people using them and are pretty happy. * Yamaha THR10, $300. I heard from a friend it has really great sound! But I'm not sure about this, is that it has amp modelling too. I'm buying HD500X, which does this job already, so I suppose I'll use "Flat" mode on the combo. Then why to pay for the rest? * Line 6 Spider IV 15 15-watt 1x8 Modeling Guitar Amplifier, $100. Great reviews and very cheap. 15 watt probably will be enough to play at home? * Line 6 Spider IV 30 30-watt 1x12 Modeling Guitar Amplifier, $200. Bigger speaker. * Marshall MG30CFX MG Series 30-Watt, $200. * Fender Champion 40, $180 * Orange Crush Pix CR35LDX 1x10" 35-Watt Combo w/FX Orange, $250. But I probably don't need any fx... * Roland CUBE-10GX 10W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp, $130 Combo amps with tubes: * Orange Micro Terror 20-Watt Head + Orange PPC108 1x8" 20-Watt Speaker Cabinet 8-ohm Orange, $100 + $150. Tube! * Vox VT20PLUS 20-Watt 1x8 Guitar Combo Amplifier, $180. Tube! * Laney Amps CUB All TUBE Series CUB 10 10-Watt 1x10 Guitar Combo Amplifier, $250. Tube! Monitors: * KRK RP5G3-NA Rokit 5 Generation 3 Powered Studio Monitor, $300 for pair. * JBL LSR305 5-inch Two-Way Powered Studio Monitor, $270 for pair. * Yamaha HS5 Powered Studio Monitor, $400 for pair with cables and stands. * Behringer Truth B1030a High-Resolution, Active 2-Way Reference Studio Monitors, $300 for pair. In my understanding these monitors are pretty a bottom line for monitors. I don't have in plans to make recordings in nearest future. I don't even have a nice table to place them on (working on a laptop). So maybe these are other reasons to buy a better combo amp, than cheap monitors. But if only a lot of guitarist who uses POD HD500X will say that using combo with all modelling power of HD500X doesn't make sense, then I'm ready to find a good place for monitors at my place :) --- So the first questions first please: combo amp or active monitors? :) Thanks in advance!
  9. Maybe a silly question and personal preference but I'm curious what most people are using for patch settings when recording into your DAW. I am running a pair of Yamaha HS7 reference monitors. When setting up patches i've been toggling between using an amp or a preamp, obviously 2 different sounds. Any suggestions on best practice for creating patches for recording purposes? I'm on information overload since I received the Helix rack yesterday. I did hook it up at a rehearsal last night to a small practice amp and copied some presets and changed from "amp" to "preamp" and chose the same model. It's just when I get home to record where I wasnt sure the best method.
  10. Hi, Very new to the no-amp concept, so be gentle :unsure: At the moment i am using a Pod HD500X with headphones. This set-up is becoming a bit tiresome for a few reasons and so I was looking at some studio monitors for the FRFR, stereo sound, and the bedroom volume, but I don't want to also fork out for when I am playing with a drummer or full band. For this reason i was looking at the L2T, but am wondering about a few things that i hope someone can help me with! 1. What would happen with the stereo patches that i have created given that there is only 1 speaker in the unit? Would the sound be compromised? 2. What is it like at bedroom volumes? Can it even be that quiet? 3. Is it just a matter of connecting it to my Pod via one L6 link cable? Or do i need XLR cables? If so, balanced or unbalanced? Really confused by this one. Apologies if this information is readily available, but i haven't been able to find it, not even by calling and talking to music shop people who supply them! All the best, Azz
  11. I've been happily using my UX2 for years now, but I'd like to make some adjustments if possible. For recording and monitoring I use Yamaha HS5, which are ran from the analog outs on the back via xlr's. For casual listening I also use the monitors but also have a sub out from the headphone jack. The sub is part of a cheap 2.1 setup from bestbuy, I just disconnected the small L/R speakers and use the sub only. I record death metal, but frequently listen to rap and electronic and want to hear the low low frequencies. If I play music through WMP I can use the eq to dial the sub to get the sound I'm looking for but this is also applied to the monitors as well, which basically ruins the big picture. Is there a way to only dial the sub and leave the monitors alone? Any ideas are appreciated, thanks.

    POD HD 500x

    Hi guys! I just disconnected my POD 500X from my computer as the latency was unbearable. I think I'll try connecting my KRK 6's directly into it instead, but I noticed that the outputs on the POD are balanced whereas the inputs on the monitors are balanced for both XLR and TRS. Will this be a problem ? I've read somewhere that when monitoring from the balanced outputs on the POD, the volume gets really low unless you connect to an amp, but when using unbalanced directly it's quite allright for practising...? Just wondering what kinda cables I should head out to buy on monday - cheers for any advice :) -Thomas
  13. Hello! I'm new to this forum and have intention on buying StageScape M20D, however have a question to Line6 about a possible expandability in future. If this was already asked please direct me to right answer. Thank you. Is it possible and does Line6 plans on releasing a functionality and device for M20D where each musician can control their own monitor mix for IEMs utilizing L6 Link? What I'm referring to is something that Behringer has in form of P16-M Personal Monitor Mixers or Allen-Heath ME-1 personal mixers for QU digital mixer series. So basically the ability to daisy chain these personal mixer devices thru L6 Link so each musician can mix his own monitor mix using iPhone for example. I believe that L6 Link carries enough data to allow such a functionality. I know that there are 4 AUXes for monitors but it is only 4 of them or you can link them to 2 stereo pairs. So it is kind of limited. I believe that personal mixer device would bring the value of the StageScape to a brand new level. P.S.: Or is this kind of feature M20D replacement will have? Thank you.
  14. HOLA! I am looking for ways to create sounds in my hd500 to be as real as possible. I mean, I want to be sure to be listening to the right thing. It happened that after editing a sound (I thought right) then I found very different in other audio systems. I know, it is normal that the systems audio sound distinct from one enclosure to another, even more if they are different systems. The aim: Same possibilities to create a sound as if a real amp in my house. Which is the best? Headphones? Professional Monitors? Home monitors? Another thing? Thank you very much to all!
  15. Has anyone had success in connecting the Sonic Port to studio monitors for sound output? I can hear fine through headphones. I have KRK Rokit 5's. They have a volume knob on the back and if I crank it I still barely hear anything. The product description implies this should be possible: "You can even connect powered studio monitors via the 1/4†mono/stereo guitar/line-level output." Has anyone had success trying this and how?
  16. Hi I have a PC/Mac hybrid with Line6 Toneport UX2 soundcard a PS3 (with optical output). I use the toneport for all my guitar/bass amplification needs at home and also record with it via Logic Pro. I have a decent pair of PC speakers (Hercules 2.1) but cant hook the PS3 up to them. I'm thinking about getting something like this Denon Mini Hifi which will easily accommodate the Toneport UX2. It's small which is important as it'll be going in my very small home office. My main worry here is that it wont sound great; but surely it'll be far better than my PC speakers??? I'm especially worried about how the speakers might handle angry guitar tones etc. I know for a home studio setup the ideal is to use studio monitors but I don't have so much flexibility with inputs with those and I guess they are only good for work via Logic really. Anyway guys, your experiences/thoughts/recommendations would be appreciated on this. Jim
