Hello, Helix noob here. Am I able to connect two studio monitors to my helix, connect the helix to my computer via USB, and then with the HELIX Native Plug-in interface play directy through my studio monitors? Thanks in advance and apologies for the noob question.
Hi everyone, I'm a longtime HX Effects user, and would like to use the HXFX to control Native in the same way as I do for the hardware effects. I'm finding this very cumbersome & slow. For example, in Ableton I've had to first individually map each CC Toggle / Expression value to a "switch" in the plugin's "configure" interface, and if I want one switch to control multiple things (easy on HXFX), I have to assign it to multiple "switches" in "configure". THEN I have to map these switches to the switches inside the Helix Native plugin itself. This wouldn't be so bad if I just had to do it once, but there is seemingly no way to SAVE these mappings anywhere. So I have to continually RE-DO all this, which means it takes ~20 minutes just to insert the plugin. Is there any way to integrate HXN with HXFX better, so that the switches/expression pedals in the plugin itself are mapped (and these mappings are saved)? There's that enticing "MIDI In" indicator bottom right in the plugin, which implies there must be a way for the plugin to directly receive MIDI, but I've never figured this out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hoping to get some assistance on a persistant issue I've had with Helix Native. I have a constant bit of distortion that I can't get rid of. Here's an example - https://soundcloud.com/derek-eugene/helix-noise This is recorded direct in logic, but it comes through in headphones and monitors as well. I've used a few different interfaces (Focusrite Scarlett, Behringer 204HD, IK Axe I/O, Apollo Twin). This happens with both stock cabs and IRs, the attached clip is using one of the more popular custom patches from the Line 6 site. I don't see any apparent clipping in/out. I've checked the sample rate and it matched between the interface and Logic at 41, and still happens at 48. Any assistance would be awesome!! I love the tones I am getting, aside from that low end distortion. Output 1-2.mp3
I actually bought a Helix Floor unit and am worried it's massive overkill for my abilities, experience, etc. I've played mostly acoustic guitar and bought a few electrics and now feel like I've fallen down the rabbit hole. I wouldn't really know how to create tones, but like the idea of being able to purchase/download patches. I'm a bedroom player, so no gigging application or band application so do I really need a Floor Unit? Should I have just purchased the Helix Native Plug-In for $400 vs. the Floor for $1400. If I buy the Native Plug in and return the Floor unit I'll still need to purchase a FocusRite Scarlett (or something like that), plus I'll need a copy of Pro Tools to basically run the thing, right? Seems like I'm swimming out of my depth, but would appreciate any advice as I'm pretty new to all this amp sim stuff. Thinking I might just need to swim in shallow waters like Amplitube, Guitar Rig, or Tone Bridge.... but I do really want the high level tonal capabilities of Helix and have hired a guy for lessons who may be able to help me fine tune it.
