    Ambulance Noise at high gains

    I just purchased the Line6 Helix HX effects pedalboard and i have noted that whenever high gain effects are selected (happens in almost all the FUZZ effects), there is a high volume, ambulance type of noise (coming and going) in the tempo that the tap led is blinking. If you lower the gain a lot, (really a lot) the noise goes away but the effect is useless at such low gain/volume. anyone with similar symptoms?
  2. Hi, I have a PODxt Pro, I recently started getting terrible EMI Interference noise (its not the 60 hz hum) on all outputs Digital. and all analog outs ie Balanced, unbalanced, headphones....... Its not guitars, cables, output devices, or external surrounding electrical devices........... when I was trouble shooting noise source ie... ground loops, firmware, surrounding electrical devices,.... all of which I think I have ruled out. I have one question, I never noticed that the internal POD power transformed hummed, even though that is not what I hear from outputs. Can anyone tell me if this is normal with the POD xt Pro power transformer to hear the 60 hz hum when device is powered on with no inputs or outputs connected? Thank for all replies in advance, Jeff
  3. Hi, I have a preset with snapshots using 1 amp (the cartographer which is great). Obviously because of using snapshots I have different parameters on the amp per snapshots. When I switch from one snapshot to another there is a loud pop noise. Is there a way to avoid that noise. I tried to use an eq pedal to regulate volume and keep the volume on the amp channel equal but this did not solve the issue. I also tried to put the amp in another path but this did not help neither.

    POD 500X HD Horrible Sounding

    Got a PD 500XHD. Was working great - no complaints. All of a sudden, I heard a pop, and everything sounds "trebly". Patches that sounded great are crap now. I downloaded the last patches. My unit got out of sync one day (when your PC HDEdit is running but board is off). I've done this before so I know what to do. When I downloaded my latest save on the Open Bundle option, it didn't want to load. Once I loaded it, now all the tones seems "way off". Tested through 2 guitars, earphones, speakers, different connections - all the same. Am I missing something?

    HX effects noise with amp gain

    Hi there ! Trying to use the HX Effect with my 2-channels amp. No problem with clean channel. No problem when using line6 HX effects internal distortion or OD amazing tone When I engage my amp lead channel, HX Effect cause some noise problems with the amp. - I know that gain must generate some noise - My amp is usually quiet - This is a groove tube amp with high gain capacity but I keep gain relatively low - Other setting WITHOUT HX effect with pedal in front that are not true bypass don't generate this noise - This noise is NOT 50hz hum ground-loop noise, single pups noise, but more shhhhhhhh kind of noise (noise of snake not happy with modern jazz) - When testing, I mute all the effects - The unit is plugged in front (I plan to use the FX loop when this issue is solved) - I compare bypass and engaged tone, Huge difference with noise when HX effect is in line - All the input/ouput are set to instrument level. Is there anybody having the same issue ? Do you think this is the classical noisy HF effects syndrome ?

    USB connection causing NOISE with 4CM

    I love using the helix with my real tube amp. I can use the real amp-sounds and just effects and/or the preamp modulation from helix and a real power amp kicking a real cab. Now, I would reaaaally love to have the helix connected to my DAW at the same time so I could also record and reamp the signals but plugging the USB between my helix and my mac causes all the speakers go justinbieberbangingcyborgbritneyspearsbrmmmmmmmm : C I haven't had this kind of problem with any other gear in my home studio. Any ideas? I could just use the analogue connections back and forth between my mixer but would love to skip all the A/D/A-conversions...

    Relay G10 Noise..

    I can not speak English because I am a foreigner. I wrote using Google Translator. Good morning. I am using FIVE O pickup now. The instrument uses an ukulele. The pickup uses a 3v CR2032 battery. When this pickup is connected, white noise is generated. There are two instruments equipped with this pickup, but they all have the same symptoms. Other passive pickups did not have this symptom. There was also no noise in the fishman pickup installed on the guitar. The Fishman pickup used a 9v battery. I want to remove this noise. ↓ five-O pick up Noise T^T
  8. I am using a POD HD 500X and a DT50 Head. I had tried the POD alone, but was dissatisfied with the "modeled" amp tones (I've always used a Mesa Boogie Rectifier, and am partial to a real "tube" tone. That's why I purchased the DT. I plugged directly into the DT, and using topology 4, was able to get an awesome heavy tone. Chunky. Tight. Very little noise. Awesome. So I set up the POD HD500X using the L6 link. Starting with a new (empty) patch, I tried to recreate that same sound I got by plugging directly into the DT. It seems that my choices are: 1) to use the Angel F-Ball model (using channel A), or 2) to use no amp model, which sends it to channel B. BOTH are unsatisfactory. (1) Using the model, it doesn't have the same warmth and clarity as if I'd plugged directly into the tube amp. And its VERY noisy!! (2) Using channel B, I need to turn up the output of the HD 500 all the way to get the same gain as if I'd plugged straight into the head. Or turn up the mixer in the HD signal chain all the way. This method is also very noisy. And in this way, I'd be limited to just one tone...whatever I have channel B set to. And woud also have no way to boost for leads. To make sure it wasn't my imagination, I have tested both ways, back and forth. I plugged into the DT directly - sounds amazing, crunchy, and no noise. I plug into the POD HD500X connected to the DT via L6 - noisy and mediocre tone. I bought the two so I could have a nice tube sound, but also be able to change between tolologies/gain amounts/effects configurations all in one click of the pedal. What do I need to do differently to get the same great tube sound I get from plugging directly into the DT, only using the POD, using the POD to change topologies, effects, etc? Thanks, Tim

    HELIX Loud Hiss Noise

    I updated my Helix LT yesterday to 2.6, and after that it's been really noisy. I tried different stock presets and it's the same thing. You can hear in the clip that it only stops momentarily when I play really loud. But other than that it's constantly there, and impossible to live with. I'm sure it's not my guitar, because everything was fine just before updating, and I tried another guitar with no change. I plugged my HD500x into the same outlet and it was completely quiet, which makes me think this is a HELIX issue. It's on all the outputs (headphones, 1/4", USB). Anyone know what is causing this?

  10. Hi there, first of all, happy new year to everyone. I'm having big issues with my Helix using it together with my tube amps. I got my Helix a few weeks ago, the plan was for it to replace my big a** FX rack. I wanted to use the Helix for FX only (in four cable method) while getting my base tone from my 3-Channel Tube Amp(s). That plan failed for now, because in the current state it's unusable. When connecting the Helix to my Amps, a giant noise floor gets added. It can be barely heard using the first (clean) channel of my amps, but when using the 3rd (high gain) channel of the amps, the noise is so loud it makes the setup almost unplayable. I have made a few tests in my home just now, with the following basic setup: A fresh, empty preset in Helix, all outputs set to instrument level, and a volume pedal block added before the output of path 1A. No volume control in the Helix, be it in the input of the path, volume pedal block, the output of the path, or the big knob has any influence of the level of the noise. Both stage amps I own show the same behaviour, so it is very unlikely to be a fault in one of the amps. Both amps are custom hand wired amps that I designed and built myself (before you ask, yes, I am qualified for that, and the amps are built to a very high standard, not some kind of botch jobs :) ), so no use asking for the amps' brand. Both amps have been on the road with me, playing reliably for the past years and working flawlessly with my, in terms of noise grounding etc. far more complex, rack system. Or so I thought... Anyway. I am beginning to suspect that my Helix unit is faulty. Before I go through the hassle of returning the unit I wanted to ask if anyone here maybe has had similar experiences running the Helix together with a high gain tube (pre-)amp. I have attached a sample of the noise. I quickly recorded it with my mobile, as I don't have a recording setup at home. In the sample you can hear the change in noise level when I plug the Helix into the amp's input jack. I held the mobile right in front of the speaker cabinet. First you hear some buzzing from the amp with nothing connected, then the click when I plug the guitar cable into the helix, and then I plug the other end of the cable into the amp's frontend. The amp was switched to its high gain channel, master volume set a little lower than stage volume. No guitar was connected to the input of Helix. As you can hear, the increase in noise is really huge. Any help or suggestions are highly appreciated, I'm really frustrated. Thanks, Nils Edit: deleted sound sample to avoid further confusion.
  11. Hi everyone, I read some topics in the forum and i'm not sure if any topic describe exactly my problem so i have to ask you guys. I bought my guitar (a JTV 59) refurbished in Line 6 store and finally after 3 month I bring it to my home in Argentina after a travel in the US, so I have to solve the problem pretty much by myself. After a few days of using it the bridge magnetic pickup starts to make some intermittent noise (not a hum, more like a broken contact). It only happens once in a while using the magnetic pickups with the VDI cable with and without the battery. With a regular 1/4" plug with the battery the noise is still there, without the battery the noise disappears. My clue is that the pickup selector is either dirty or broken, but the noise should be there at least i'm missing something. If you have any solution besides cleaning the pickup switcher i'll apreceate your advices. Thanks you in advance. Sorry about my english, it's not my native lenguage.
  12. I can run out of my iPhone straight into the RCA connections on the back, turn up main volume, and it sounds great when music plays, when music stops, very little noise at all. When an input is applied anywhere else, however - either of the two side channels on the mixer, or on the main in on the back, turning up the main volume creates a hiss that isn't acceptable. I've tried multiple mics, multiple guitars, different cables, etc - all the same. Even when not even pushing a signal to the L3t, just having something plugged in to *any* input except RCA, and turning up the main knob - hiss. This is too big and expensive to just be something that makes mp3's sound good, hehe. Thoughts? Thanks!
  13. hello, just received my L3T, plugged in the Helix and played both treble and bass side of my chapman stick into it at moderate volume. As soon as I sustained any mid low content the noisy fan came on. Is this normal? Do these L3T start pumping on the fan as soon as you solicit the bass amp? Does that change if you add a L3S bass cab?
  14. Hi everyone! I am a begginer with PODHD 500x, that's why I need your help. I dowloaded differents patches from the LINE 6 website, and when I tried them at home everything worked fine. When I went to play with my band in our small room, I attached the POD direct in front of a combo (LINE 6 SPIDER IV - CLEAN). Problem is that when I play a distorted patch, it start to whistle and make unsupportable noise. I read on http://foobazaar.com/podhd/toneGuide/setup This that I report: "I recommend setting your output mode to the appropriate non-"Studio/Direct" mode. If you want to use your Pod for both "direct" and "live" purposes, I recommend leaving the output mode as "Studio/Direct" and setting your "live" patches up with "no cab" as your cabinet selection. When you use "no cab", you get the same output in every output mode (more-or-less) - all cab/mic simulation is simply disabled. " Now what I would like to try is to set INPUT 1: GUITAR and INPUT 2: VARIAX for all the patches; And then I would like to put this "no cab" suggested, but I don't really understand how to do this. About the "mixer" Path A and Path B should be Centered ? Or should I leave it 100%R and 100%L? May you help me through this? Any other reccomandations?
  15. Well, if Guitar Center won't take back my G10, maybe Line 6 will.... Big fan of Line 6 products in general, but this is simply unacceptable. You guys needed to do more testing with various guitars before releasing this product. I am guessing here, but it seems that active electronics in acoustic guitars that use BRAIDED cables for the pickups have issues with interference. It's bad. It's high-frequency, digital-sounding noise and it's not anywhere near "typical" or tolerable. I have an Emerald X-20 acoustic. Originally equipped with a B-Band A3T system. My G10 worked just great with it, however I had quality issues with the system, so B-Band sent me a replacement. The new pickup design included a braided shield over the pickup cable. This is when the noise started with the G10. Using a guitar cable, the noise went away. After having yet more quality issues with B-Band (and Emerald quit using them as a supplier), I had Emerald install their updated LR Baggs Element system. This, too, has a braided pickup cable. And the noise is even worse than before. The guitar is dead silent when using a normal cable. Yes, I've tried the mono-to-mono adapter trick. No relief from the noise. In addition, this new LR Baggs system seems to suffer from the "reverse polarity" issue, whereby the system won't even work at all when plugged directly into the guitar. It's been more than 45 days, but I'm going to see if Guitar Center will take this thing back. It's simply not worth the hassle. For whatever reason, my 15-year old Yamaha (yes, it has an active preamp) works fine with the G10. But I simply cannot accept the noise coming from the Emerald, and it's not the guitar's fault. Any solutions before I return this inferior product, Line 6 people???
  16. Hello, I installed and began using UX1 with Pod Farm 2 the other day. From the get go, every time I play there is this annoying clicking sound randomly placed in my pattern. I thought there might be some metronome automatically being applied to my pattern, but I can't find a setting to disable that. This only happens when I am playing, picking or strumming. It is like STRUM, STRUM STRUM, (((CLICK))), STRUM STRUM STRUM (((CLICK))) . Does anyone know what is going on here?
  17. Hello! I've had a Line 6 Toneport UX2 for a couple of years now. Recently I got a new desktop PC running windows 10. When i connect my toneport all I can hear coming from the outputs and the phones output is a loud hissing noise. Drivers are all up to date, line 6 monkey shows me all green ticks, asio drivers are all ok. the input vu-meter is always at maximum even though nothing is connected to it. no input signal, no output sound (except for the loud hiss.) Running it in a usb 2.0 on the motherboard (so no usb dongle or something like that). Tried it with all ports, a couple of different usb cables. I've also tried seeing if my PC's output voltage was the problem but everything is ok, no overclocking done. I'm running out of ideas. Could anyone help me with this?
  18. I have a variax 700 acoustic. No matter which model I select, I get a good signal on all but one string. Usually the G or D string. It is distorted, fuzzy, whatever you want to call it , and it sounds horrible. If I tap on the saddle with my pick, it'll go back to normal. But it will do it again after a few minutes. Just out of curiosity, does Line 6 recommend steel or bronze strings for the variax acoustics? I've tried both and I'm never sure if one or the other is better. And then there's the model selector knob. It sometimes doesn't engage the next model intill you give it a tap. Not enough of a tap to go into the alt mode (red light) but just a touch to get it to change voices. Does anyone else have any of these issues and is there anything I can do about them? Thanks !

    4CM noise problem

    Hi everyone. I'm using the following setup: Guitar to helix, 4 cable method to Carvin Legacy VL300 amp, amp to Carvin Legacy 412 cab, and xlr outputs to mixer then stereo cabs. I'm also feeding a stereo loop pedal via sends 3 and 4. So: Guitar -> Helix guitar in -> Helix Send 1 -> Amp In -> Amp Send -> Helix Return 1 -> Helix Send 2 -> Amp Return (i use the send 2 instead of the 1/4" out because this way the volume is not affected by the helix volume knob). Also: Helix Xlr Outs to mixer, and Sends 3 and 4 to Loop Pedal, then mixer. You can see the scheme in the picture Problem is, when i plug the guitar straight to the amp, there's no noise, no hum, everything clear on all chanels. When i plug the guitar to helix straight to mixer, with amp simulations, no noise, no hum, everything clear. When i use the 4CM, lots of noise. You can hear it in the video. first guitar straight to amp. then plug the guitar to helix guitar in, and the remaining 3 cables. And you'll hear the diference... https://youtu.be/D6eNThp-BkM Already tried: -change all the cables, audio and power. -plug the power to diferente places, then same place. -change the outs from line to instrument, and vice-versa. Nothing works. Any guesses??
  20. EVERYTHING COMES ON, I CAN SWITCH THROUGH ALL MY PRESETS....IT JUST HAS A CONSTANT OSCILLATING NOISE COMING THROUGH IT. NOT SURE WHY. ANYBODY HAVE ANY THOUGHT OTHER THAN MAYBE A BAD POWER SUPPLY?
  21. HELLO LINE 6 BUDDIES! I'm two-track recording an acoustic guitar with my POD HD500X as the audio interface. I have a RODE NT1A condenser mic plugged into a mixer with phantom power. This mixer is then connected to the POD's 'Guitar In' input via guitar lead, and there is also an acoustic guitar connected to the 'AUX' input for a direct signal. This is all running through Logic Pro X on my Macbook Pro (Early 2015) with 16GB RAM. I have used this setup before and it has all worked fine, except today I am hearing intermittent static coming from both inputs at seemingly random intervals. It sounds like a short burst of a bitcrusher-like sound, and then goes back to normal after less than a second. It can't be any problem with the mic/mixer because I am getting the problem on AUX (direct input) as well as the Guitar In (mic) input. I have tried different USB cables, and have tried different power outlets. I have also tried a different audio interface (that can unfortunately only handle one input) that didn't seem to have the same problem, leading me to think that it also isn't an issue with Logic Pro X... SO... Has this happened to anyone before, and can anyone think of any reason this might be happening? Yeah, I've turned it off and on again ;)

    TriAxis 4CM and noise

    I tried out my Mesa Boogie TriAxis with 4CM and get an awful noise. We've gone through about twenty different troubleshooting ideas on the facebook group and haven't found a winner yet. Three solutions I was not yet able to try due to lack of availability: Isolated coupler Hum buster cable ISP Decimator Anyway, the TriAxis is a beast and sounds great regardless of the hum. I don't think I'll be taking it to any gigs like this, though.
  23. Hello there. I'm a UX2 user like 5 years, which i've been gifted by my uncle in USA. Once, i had not any problems, while i was using Windows 7 i suppose. Then in time, some problems started to occur. Biggest one was -and still is- that, all of a sudden sound is gone and i don't have any option but to restart my computer. Either playing a game or watching a video, listening to music, all of a sudden, bam! Sound is gone and nothing helps but a restart! And it also randomly happens again after a restart as well. I started to have this problem in Windows 7, had in 8 and now in 10 it still happens. I did not change any computer part since then (cpu, mobo etc.) Besides, i've not got a second problem, which freaks me out often. As before, during any playback, a loud "white noise-ish" distort occurs for a second or two, then playback continues. This happens quite randomly, sometimes twice in 10 seconds, sometimes once, sometimes never. I've tried every driver i can, the oldest and the newest ones, tried changing the buffer sizes, buffer lengths, depths etc. What's more interesting is, this problems do not happen for two or three weeks, and the week after, it's an absolute nightmare! It's like, as if it has something to do with the days of the months! I do not overclock, my system is all stable and not overheated during even the hardest gaming sessions. I'm quite fed up with this problem. One day, i'll break the hell out of this device and post the images as an ultimate solution for the people who have such problems as well.. Please, i beg you; please help me!
  24. Hello anyone. If you have ended up here then you have had to deal with the pain of all this noise. I did however sort it simply. For Windows 10 users, it all comes down to your USB ports. USB 2.0 Fail – no sound at all. USB 3.0 Hissing/Crackling static noise. USB 3.1 Works perfect. Thanks.

    POD HD500 output noice

    I am having a big problem with my HD500. The output has become extremely noisy... to the point where it's unusable. The output signal is literally about 60% noise and 40% signal. Also... it has changed all of my sounds (the names and settings appear the same on the display but the sounds are completely different and all very distorted). I'm a broke musician... I don't want to have to pay to fix this or buy a new unit if I can help it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. edit: Tried to reset and reload it... now every sound has a tape looper built in. Thanks.
