  1. Hello, Can't find anyone with this issue on the forums. I am admittedly new at using DAW and plug-ins but I am adept at using computers. I own a Helix and the Helix Native plug-in. I also have purchased a full Pro Tools 12 (12.8.3 to be exact) perpetual lisence. I am using Windows 10. Helix Native 1.01 plug-in works for me in Pro-Tools. However accessing the Helix Native Plugins Mix window under INSERTS A-E > PLUG-IN > INSTRUMENT > HELIX NATIVE (mono) or HELIX NATIVE (mono/stereo) or the corresondong ones appearing in the EFFECTS branch of INSERTS A-E > PLUG-IN causes either Pro Tools to freeze up permanently forcing software reboot, or sometimes even goes as far as asking me to log in to my Line6 account, only to crash Pro Tools and close the window, again forcing software reboot). PC reboot didn't fix the issue. None of these issues existed in Native 1.01, which still works fine for me. By the way, apart for my first start-up of Pro Tools this morning, I am only able to access the Native plug-in by adding an audio- track, going into the mix window and selecting it from the INSERTS A-E menu. This morning I was able to access it from the other intended place, Pro-Tools menu > AudioSuite>Instrument> but now nothing appears there regardless whetehr I am using Native 1.01 or 1.10. FYI, my Native does appear in the proper place. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Avid\Audio\Plug-Ins\Line 6\Helix Native.aaxplugin Can someone explain how to workaround this bug. Meanwhile I'll try installing Pro-Tools and Native on my Laptop to see if I can reproduce the error. Note: I have done all the steps in this post so I know what I am doing. https://line6.com/support/page/kb/_/recording/helix-native/how-to-find-helix-native-in-pro-tools-r867
  2. Hey, I want to run my processor like AXE FX where you can put that into a studio session and program effect presets change at any downbeat you want during the song. Right now I have my HD 500x processor plugged in to my computer by USB, and Studio One has it programed as an external device. Now I need to figure out how to bring it into the session so I can place effect presets.
  3. 1. Launch Garage Band, and create an audio track. 2. Go to View -> Open Smart Control Click on the "i" icon on the smart control top bar, then drag the scroll bar to find Audio FX slots. Click on the Audio FX Slot and find Helix Native from Audio Units -> Line 6 -> Helix Native
  4. How to Activate Helix Native Download the latest version of Helix Native at http://line6.com/software/. Run the Helix Native installer. We suggest you temporarily disable all third party antivirus programs during the installation. During the install, take note of the VST3 and AAX Plugin folder locations. If you choose to install the PC VST2 plugin, you will be able to choose your own folder location. On Mac, VST2 is installed at /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/. PC VST2 only: Open your recording program’s preferences and point it to the folder that Helix Native was installed to. Start your DAW, create an audio track, then add Helix Native as a plugin (see below for links to your particular DAW). On first run, you will be prompted to sign in to your Line 6 account to authorize your license. Individual DAW Set-up Articles Pro Tools Cubase Garage Band Reaper Studio One Sonar Logic Pro X Ableton Liv​e Q: I can't find the Helix plug-in, even after following the steps in the articles above. A. Possible causes: The default VST3 folder on Windows is C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\. Ensure your DAW has scanned that directory. Helix Native is a VST Effect. When searching your DAW's plug-ins list, make sure to look under VST Effects and not VST Instruments. Helix Native is 64-bit only, and therefore won’t appear in a 32-bit DAW. Q: What are the default locations for Helix Native plug-in files? This version of Helix Native plug-in installs on a Mac to: AU Plug-in : /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/Helix Native.component VST2 Plug-in : /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Line 6/Helix Native.vst VST3 Plug-in : /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3/Line 6/Helix Native.vst3 AAX Plug-in : /Library/Application Support/Avid/Audio/Plug-Ins/Line 6/Helix Native.aaxplugin This version of Helix Native plug-in installs on Windows to: VST3 Plug-in : C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\Line 6\Helix Native (x64).vst3 AAX plugin: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Avid\Audio\Plug-Ins\Line 6\Helix Native.aaxplugi n NOTE: The VST2 plugin installation location, if installed, will be determined by the user during the installation process.
  5. Locating Helix Native in Cubase/Nuendo For Mac Launch Cubase or Nuendo. Go to “Devices -> Plug-in Manager -> VST Effects†and check to see if Helix Native is Active and the box is checked. The default location is “/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3/†Locating Helix Native in Cubase/Nuendo For Windows Launch Cubase or Nuendo. Go to “Devices -> Plug-in Manager -> VST Effects†and check to see if the correct location is added. The default location is “C: > Program Files > Common Files > VST3 > Line 6 Adding Helix Native to a track in Cubase Add an audio track. Click on Inserts -> Line6 -> Helix Native Here are some helpful videos for adding and organizing effects within Cubase
  6. Locating Helix Native in Pro Tools 1. Create a Mono or Stereo Audio Track 2. Open the Mixer Window in Pro Tools (Go to View -> Mix Window), then go to the insert section on the guitar tracks and click Insert A to view the plug-in menu and see if you can find the Helix Native plug-ins via the path: plug-in - Effect -> Helix Native Note: If the plug-in or manufacturer’s name is not listed within the plug-in menu, then the plug-in is not detectable by Pro Tools. If the Helix Native plug-in isn’t in the list, make sure it shows up in the Pro Tools Plug-ins folder using the directions below. If they don’t show up there, try to download and install them again. If it does show up in the plug-ins folder but Pro Tools still doesn’t see it, try trashing Pro Tools preferences. That will force Pro Tools to re-scan all the plug-ins in that folder. For Mac Check the Plug-ins Folder: 1. With the Finder open, click on Go and choose Computer. 2. For Pro Tools 11 or 12 (AAX), locate your plug-in at: Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Avid > Audio > Plug-Ins > Line 6 For Windows Check the Plug-ins Folder: For Pro Tools 11 or 12 (AAX), open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Avid\Audio\Plug-Ins\Line 6

    Echo Farm 3.0 FAQ

    What is Echo Farm 3.0 ? Echo Farm is a 64-bit delay modeler plug-in for the Pro Tools 11+ AAX Native platform. It offers 12 different delay models –based on a combination of actual hardware devices and Line 6 originals – and provides simple and effective controls for delay time, repeats, and other specialized parameters, such as magnetic head pattern or bit reduction. Echo Farm was introduced in the year 2000 as a Pro Tools TDM plug-in and became extremely popular, used on a multitude of award-winning records and soundtracks. Due to popular demand, we now make Echo Farm available as an AAX Native plug-in. When will Echo Farm be available and how much will it cost? Echo Farm 3.0 is available now through the Line 6 online store. The standard AAX license costs $199. What are the OS requirements? Mac OS “Mountain Lion” version 10.8.3 and higher Windows 7 and higher Is there an upgrade path to the AAX version? Yes there is, for registered 2.x TDM owners. The upgrade from 2.x TDM to 3.0 AAX costs $49. Both the 2.x TDM and the 3.0 AAX Echo Farm licenses need to be associated with the same iLok account for the upgrade to work. Will I have to surrender my Echo Farm TDM license when I activate the AAX license? Yes, the TDM license will be surrendered and voided when the AAX license is activated. This is irreversible. The AAX license will not authorize the TDM plugin. How can I tell if I own the 2.x TDM version? If you can see an Echo Farm license in the iLok License Manager program, you qualify. From Digidesign's archive: Echo Farm 2.0 or higher requires iLok authorization…Beginning in December, 2002, all registered Echo Farm owners that purchased the older retail version of Echo Farm that shipped with floppy key disk authorizations were automatically sent Echo Farm 2.0 update kits with the installer CD and an iLok License Card. Is an iLok device required to use Echo Farm 3.0? Yes, it requires a version 2 or version 3 iLok device. Echo Farm 3.0 cannot use your computer alone as an authorizing device. Can I try it before I buy it? Yes. A time-limited demo version of Echo Farm 3.0 can be activated at line6.com/ilok. What changed in Echo Farm between the TDM and AAX version? Are there any new delay models? Our design goal was to provide 100% session compatibility and ensure that older projects open smoothly in Pro Tools 11 and higher. For this reason, we kept the Echo Farm AAX feature set unchanged from the TDM version. However, the AAX version now supports sampling rates up to 192 kHz, which was not possible with the older TDM version. What are your plans for an AAX DSP version of Echo Farm? We plan to release the plug-in on the AAX Native platform initially and evaluate demand for AAX DSP subsequently. Will Echo Farm AAX work with Pro Tools 10? Echo Farm AAX is a 64-bit plug-in and thus requires Pro Tools 11 or higher to function. What about Amp Farm? Will you port Amp Farm to AAX, too? Absolutely. We plan to make Amp Farm available for the AAX platform after the release of Echo Farm. At this time, we cannot comment on specifics related to pricing or availability.

    GearBox Plug-In Effect: Discontinued

    The GearBox Plug-In (AU, RTAS, VST) Effect license and software support has been discontinued since the release of POD Farm Plug-In Version 1.00 on October 29, 2008. Line 6 has not tested the GearBox Plug-In functionality with any newer DAW version releases since October of 2008. If you are experiencing issues trying to get the Plug-In Effect to work properly in current recording software programs, please use the latest version of POD Farm Plug-In software instead. For new users with no previous Line 6 USB hardware or license purchase history, the option in 2011 for a Line 6 amp modelling Plug-In Effect is to purchase the POD Farm 2.5 license and run that software version. NOTE: GearBox "Standalone" software usage is still currently supported for GuitarPort Online subscribers.
  11. GearBox Plug-In license sales were halted upon the introduction of our POD Farm Version 1 Plug-In licenses back in the Fall of 2008. However, the GearBox software installer STILL contains the GearBox Plug-In file, because we still have end users who had purchased the GearBox Plug-In license prior to the Fall of 2008 who are still using said effect in their recording applications. If you are a new or recent user who has downloaded the GearBox 3.72 Installer and run this package, you will still see the GearBox Plug-In option appear in your recording program the next time you launch it, as most DAW's scan for new Plug-In files installed by default. If you wish to delete your GearBox Plug-In file (to avoid confusion), please remove the GearBox .dll file found in: Windows VST: C:\Program Files\Line6\VstPlugIns\Line 6 Windows RTAS: C:\Program Files\Common\Files\Digidesign\DAE\Plug-Ins\Line 6 Mac AU: Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > Components Mac RTAS: Library > Application Support > Digidesign > Plug-Ins > Line 6 Unless you purchased the optional GearBox license prior to the Fall of 2008, please note that only POD Farm and POD Farm 2 Plug-In licenses are available for purchase through our Line 6 Webstore.
  12. This release of Gearbox Standalone adds support for Windows 7 and Mac OSX 10.6. GearBox Plug-In Support does not apply, please see the following knowledge base article for more details: Gearbox Plug-in Effect: Discontinued New features/changes/fixes in this release: The currently released drivers and Line 6 Monkey with Windows 7 and Snow Leopard support are bundled with this GearBox package. A minor bug which could cause the tonedirect volume to be set to 0 with some patches was fixed. You can download the latest Gearbox release at: http://line6.com/software/ System Requirements: WINDOWS® Pentium® 4, 1.2GHz or better (2.5Ghz or higher recommended) Windows® XP® (with SP2 or better) or Windows® Vista® (32 bit and 64 bit versions are supported) 512MB RAM minimum (1GB or more recommended) 1GB free HD space minimum (10GB or more recommended for recording) USB 1.1 or 2.0 port on computer for connecting Line 6 hardware (USB 2.0 port is required for TonePort UX8 and POD X3 family devices) Internet connection required for activation (once activated, Internet connection is not required, except for access to optional Guitar Port Online membership service). Host application that supports RTAS* or VST Plug-ins (for optional GearBox RTAS/VST Plug-In) MACINTOSH® Intel® or Power PC® based G4 1.5GHz or better (G4 1.67 or better recommended) OS X 10.4 or better 512MB RAM minimum (1GB or more recommended) 1GB free HD space minimum (10GB or more recommended for recording) USB 1.1 or 2.0 port on computer for connecting Line 6 hardware (USB 2.0 port is required for TonePort UX8 and POD X3 family devices) Internet connection required for activation (once activated, Internet connection is not required, except for access to optional Guitar Port Online membership service). Host application that supports RTAS* or AU Plug-ins (for optional GearBox RTAS/AU Plug-In) Known Issues: Master and Record section controls of GearBox app stay active in Tuner mode. They will have no audible effect in Tuner mode, but the application will re-sync all parameters when exiting Tuner mode. GearBox will not always save the correct amp model and/or settings when transferring to an X3 unit. The work-around at this point is to edit a parameter (i.e. move the volume knob up and then back to the original position), and then the tone will store/transfer correctly. GearBox Player will not playback .m4a files. You will need to convert them into .mp3 files. Changing Variax models during ‘Tone Transfer’ with GearBox can cause MIDI device timeout error- please allow Tone Transfer to complete before changing Variax models. GearBox vocal presets default POD X3 input to guitar instead of mic due to them being created prior to POD X3 hardware - the input can be changed once the tone is loaded. GearBox application does not prompt save on application exit - users must remember to save changed tones before exiting the application. GearBox application defaults to Variax Electric panel. If an acoustic or bass is connected, please select the proper Variax type manually to sync software to the attached Variax. Rapid switching of Variax via 5 way selector switch on the guitar can cause the application to fall out of sync with the currently selected Variax model. Tones can get out of sync between POD X3 and Gearbox when doing special case tone selection. This includes tone swap, Lock Tone loading, and choosing to only load Tone 1 or Tone 2 of a patch from the X3 hardware. Please use the GearBox software to choose tones, or double click a different tone in the editor to resync the app and hardware. Gearbox reverts back to American Punk preset upon new launch if last tone is not saved before closing the application. Mac® OS X Exclusive Issues Typing in GuitarPort Online text fields causes system alert sounds. Player cannot open mono audio files. Drive knob redraw in GearBox can be sluggish when controlling Drive from X3 hardware. Turning the knob in GearBox software does not result in sluggish response, only from hardware.

    GearBox Plug-In: ProTools FAQ

    Q: How do I use the Gearbox stand-alone program to record into ProTools? A: Both the Line 6 TonePort hardware (GX/UX1/UX2/KB37) and the ProTools hardware (MBox) will need to be connected to your CPU via USB. ProTools needs the MBox designated as the soundcard on the computer (input and output audio device for the computer). The Line 6 TonePort USB device will need the latest Monkey, drivers, firmware, and GearBox installed on the host computer. Plug the instrument into the Toneport ¼” input. Take the Toneport analog output into the Mbox ¼ line input. Set the MBox controls as you normally would for gain structure. You will now be able to use the Gearbox stand-alone program processing into your ProTools recording application. Q: How can I automate the Gearbox Plug-In in ProTools? A: It is possible to automate the Gearbox Plug-In in ProTools. The directions below will take you step by step through the automation process. Launch a new track in Protools: Track/New/Create. Arm your audio track for recording and record your audio. Once your audio is recorded launch the GearBox Plug-In and instantiate it on your audio track: Window/Mix/Insert Selector A/Plug-In/Other/Gearbox. Once the GearBox Plug-In is launched dial-in or call up the tone that you want. You'll notice at the top of the plug-in GUI there is a button marked "Auto". Clicking on the "Auto" button will open up an interface that lists all of the paramaters that can be automated by ProTools in the GearBox Plug-In. Choose the parameters you want to automate and click on the "Add" button in the middle of the interface. Once you've selected all of the parameters you want to automate, click OK. In your audio track change the Automation Mode Selector button from "Read" to "Write". DISARM YOUR AUDIO TRACK FOR RECORDING. Click the play button on your global transport controls in ProTools and WITH YOUR MOUSE, MANUALLY ADJUST THE PARAMETERS YOU PREVIOUSLY SELECTED FROM THE "AUTO" FEATURE IN THE PLUG-IN INTERFACE. When you play back your track you'll notice that your automation was recorded. The knobs in the GearBox Plug-In should be moving on their own. To verify further click the "Waveform" button in your audio track, scroll down to "(FX A) Gearbox" and click on the automated parameter or parameters. The automation settings should display over your recorded waveform in your audio track.*

    GearBox Plug-In: FAQ

    The GearBox Plug-In License was only available as an Optional/Add-On purchase prior to 2009. After POD Farm Plug-In was launched, we stopped selling the GearBox Plug-In License altogether and it has since been discontinued and is no longer supported. If you purchased an older TonePort DI-Silver, TonePort DI-Gold, TonePort UX8 device then you will still have access to the GearBox Plug-In feature, since this was embedded into the aforementioned devices. POD Studio Devices will not have GearBox Plug-In capabilities, only POD Farm Plug-In. GearBox Plug-In Discontinuation FAQ NOTE: For an definition of what an audio Plug-In is, please visit the following articles: Windows (VST): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Studio_Technology Mac OSX (AU): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_Units Q: Can I run a single Plug-In on two different devices at the same time? A: No. You will need to either transfer the license from unit A to unit B, or purchase separate Gearbox plug-ins for each Line 6 device you want to use the plug-in with. Q: Why I am hearing a dry guitar signal when I use the plug-in? A: Your DAW or non-Line 6 hardware may have an "input mute" that will need to be enabled when using the plug-in to avoid hearing the dry input signal. Q: My Plug-Ins aren't showing up in the recording application? A: Please keep in mind that some recording applications including Logic and Sonar will have to run a Plug-In scan before you can use your plug-in. You will need to refer to your recording application's user manual to find out where your plug in scan resides in the application. Q: I am not seeing the tuner as an option when I am using the plug-in? A: There is no tuner function in gearbox when used as a plug-in. However; the tuner will function normally in a stand-alone application. Q: Where is the Gearbox Plug-In located? A: Depending on the host computer's operating system: Windows XP/Vista: C:\Program Files\Line6\PlugIns Mac OSX: MacIntosh HD/Library/Audio/PlugIns/Components Q: How do view the Gearbox Plugin in Garageband? A: Open Garage band Create a “new track” (the addition icon in the lower left hand corner) Select “basic track”, and choose “gearbox” on the right side of the window under “effects”. Open the track you have created (it will be titled “track info”). On the bottom left you will see “effects”. The gearbox plug in will be found toward the bottom of the dropdown menu. Be sure to enable the effect with the check mark on the left of the menu. On the right side of “manual”, select the “edit the effect” (which will have a pencil icon). You will now be able to edit your gearbox plug in. Q: How do I use Plug-Ins in Cubase 4.01? A: In Cubase 4.01 Steinberg has implemented version 3.0 VST plug-ins. Since most third party plug-ins (Gearbox included) are in a 2.4 version, the Gearbox plug-ins will be found in the "Earlier VST PlugIns" menu option. Q: I am operating a Steinberg product (i.e. Cubase, Nuendo) on a Mac, why am I not seeing my Gearbox plugins? A: Steinberg products only use VST format plug-ins for both Windows and Mac operating systems. Line 6 does not support the use of VST plug ins on the Mac OS at this time. Q: I am working in Sonar, how do the presets change when moved to FX Bins? A: In order for your Gearbox Plug-In to not change presets when dragging from one effects field to another, please "Control Drag" by holding down your control button and left clicking, and then holding your mouse and dragging. You'll see that when you do this your presets will no longer change. Q: My Application freezes or crashes when saving in VST menu? A: At this time, the Gearbox Plug-In does not support saved VST format "presets". Upon saving and loading a tone or preset, please use the Tone File Menu in the Gearbox plug-in located to the right of the tone "name" window. Q: How do I use the TonePort DI as dongle with USB Hubs? A: Line 6 does not support the use of powered USB hubs at this time. When using your TonePort DI as a dongle or input device for your Plug-ins, please connect directly to a USB port on your computer. This will ensure the plug-ins will run smoothly and effectively. Q: Plug-In hardware connected after saving DAW session? A: If your plug-ins default to the Clean Guitar Tone preset upon launching a saved DAW session then it is possible you do not have your activated Gearbox Plug-In hardware connected. Please close out of your saved DAW session, connect your activated Gearbox plug- in hardware, and relaunch your saved DAW session. You will now see that your saved Gearbox Plug-In tones will now appear correctly in your session. Q: If I use my PODxt family device as my "dongle" after downloading the plug-in pack, will I get the Mic Preamp models? A: The Mic preamp models will be available from within the Gearbox Plug-In when using your PODxt device as a dongle. Q: Can I control the Gearbox Plug-In with my PODxt or FBV controller? A: At this time it is not possible to control the Gearbox Plug-In parameters with your PODxt or controller. Some end users have had success by assigning control of a specific effect (i.e. wah or bender) to their effects control in their recording application. Q: Can I control the GearBox Plug-in via MIDI? A: The GearBox plug-in does not support the use of MIDI to control its parameters directly at this time. Applications such as Ableton Live can control the plug-in with a MIDI controller, because it can map MIDI controller data to its plug-in parameters. There is no current work around for ProTools since it does not map MIDI controller data to plug-in parameters. We understand the value of this function and are looking forward to implementing it in the future. Q: How do I remove the Gearbox plug-in from my computer? A: Depending on the host computer's operating system: XP/Vista: Run the Line 6 Uninstaller & select "All Components": Start/All Programs/Line6/Tools/Line 6 Uninstaller Mac OSX: Please follow the following file path and delete the GearboxAU.component file: Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components/GearBoxAU.component
