  1. Hi, All... I am running Helix Rack with Controller and 3 expression pedals.... I also have 2 PowerCab 112+, with the first connected to Helix Vix 6 Link, and the second PowerCab 112+ connected to the first with 6Link as well. I am running 2 separate paths in Helix. Input for Path 1 is Variax (VDI) and Input for Path 2 is Guitar (for my daughter's Ovation) I am trying to have each path output directed to separate PC+. The problem is, when I select PC+ (#1) in output block of Path 1 it changes the Output Path 2 to the same PC+. Am I missing something? Only using MONO effects between Input and Output...

  2. Hello! I have a helix and a powercab 112+ i am using a variax shuriken I have a few impulse response (made for helix from ML Sound Lab) my chain setup on helix is simple. Variax input w/noise gate - at about 45 -> distortion (note: tried multiple kinds with a few different settings to try to eliminate issue) -> impulse (tried 1024 & 2048, mono) -> digital out Physically - Variax -> Variax Cable -> Helix -> Link Cable -> Powercab+ 112 Powercab is set to FLAT (issue still occurs even with other cabs set) everything sounds muddy, first off... like real low, all in the bass.... but then if i start hitting chords... all i can hear is a raw input sound, just playing on top of everything and completely stomping out the distortion and everything else... really confusing. Hoping someone here has an idea what might be going on. If i play a single note... its muddy, like real muddy, almost as if someone is playing in the other room.... as soon as i fast strum power chords.... its like someone is mixing a raw input right on top of everything.... Please let me know if you can help!
  3. Hey Folks, I’m starting a new post about the Line 6 PowerCab. I find it pretty difficult to get my hands on good an accurate information’s about the PC product. There a lot of content on YouTube, but you never can experience the real deal that Line 6 claims « the Amp in the Room feel ». Line 6 designed the PC with this in mind. My personal journey with digital modellers: So after using Line 6 products for the last year or so (HX Stomp then grabbed a Floor unit). ¸ I’ve been using and active monitor to run my Guitar and Bass tones. The EV ELX112P has been doing a very good job so far. I’ve decided to pick this exact model because it’s a plywood cabinet and not plastic. I find it very important to have a wood material in order to get better responses from the cabinet. PC Flat mode and Speaker mode: Right off the bat the first time I plugged in the PC+ I’ve used the Flat mode to run IR or cab block from the HX. I’ve done a comparison on the Flat mode speaker voicing. (FRFR, LF FLAT, LF RAW). LF RAW mode really stands out. This mode turns off the 1’’ tweeter speaker. Then I got to try out the Speaker mode this is the mode that Line 6 claim to achieve « amp in the room ». With the PC+ you have 12 speaker emulations to choose from. My impression is that they sound fantastic! They really stand out giving you more… amp in the room feel. The Speaker mode really sounds different from the Flat mode, which you would be using IR with. They seem to give you a convincing tone without a lot of tweaking required. PC overall power and volume levels: First off from all the reviews and post I’ve read on the forum I was afraid the PC wasn’t going to be loud enough with a full band. I’ve made my custom patch in order to use to PC+ with my Blues band. I did use Logic Pro X to monitor my level coming out of the HX Floor, I aim at -10dB is level. I did make sure the indicator light of the PC was turning yellow when I really dig into the guitar strings. To sum it up… Yes, the PC is loud enough to play with a full band and be heard. PC is a 1x12 Cab not a 2x12 or 4x12 Cab: I think it’s important to talk about the fact that the PC is a 1x12 speaker cabinet. Don’t be fooled, if you think that by using a 4x12 IR your PC+ will transform itself in a Marshall 4x12… Well the logical answer is that it won’t. It’s a 1x12 cabinet, it will never be able to push the amount of air a 4x12 cab is capable of. You’ll be able to use 2x12 or 4x12 or 4x10 etc. IR but they won’t sound authentic and real. PC Verdict: It’s expensive, it sounds really good, giving you a more rewarding tone from your modeller. It’s lightweight, powerful, the speaker is voiced for guitar vs a PA speaker. The PC+ has midi or AES/EBU capabilities which are a plus, you can select speaker models, modes etc. on the fly. (Served with your patch)
  4. Hey everyone hoping someone can help me here. I'm trying to get my setup always "ready to role" based on my situation. I have my Helix setup to my PC through USB, setting the helix as amp and the cabinet is selected on the Powercab+ 112 using an AES cable between the helix and powercab. Using Variax as main work horse tl:dr - does anyone know if the AES Digital Output option can capture the final result and play it in protools? or am i doomed to just use the cabs in the Helix and only use the powercab at 'flat' settings? i am outputting the sound with 'digital' to use the AES cable. i have a keyboard hooked up thru the interface as well. it is using AUX in for direct audio playback, but then midi output for midi controlling in pro tools Because of this, path 1 input is VARIAX is outputting to DIGITAL path 2 input is AUX and output is USB 1/2 I'm able to record audio tracks fine from the keyboard in this setup, as well as capture midi. I'm also needing to make sure i can always do the ghost capture for raw guitar input (i have that on USB 7 no issues) If i set the output of path 1 to USB 3/4 i get the audio of the guitar without the settings in PowerCab. Main issue appears to be that - DIGITAL does not send/recieve - only really sends to PowerCab, and i'm not going to be able to capture that unless i have audio sending from the powercab back into the helix - but in this situation it is now a problem because i would have to change the Path 2 to support this audio. so back to the tl:dr - does anyone know if the AES Digital Output option can capture the final result and play it in protools? or am i doomed to just use the cabs in the Helix and only use the powercab at 'flat' settings?
  5. I recently added the PowerCab 112+ to the Helix Floor and Variax JTV-69S in my musical "arsenal" and I am attempting to integrate them together. Could see some wonderful automation in the future. Currently I use the Program Change message that is generated when I change presets to call up the PowerCab preset. I simply put the speaker I want to use in the preset. (Lots of duplicates, but that's okay - lot's of spaces, and infinite setlists.) However, I'm trying to switch the PowerCab's preset MODE (Flat, Speaker, User IR) from within Helix's snapshots. (MIDI CC# 20, with values 0=Flat, 1=Speaker, 2=User IR) I found the following information in one of the Helix MIDI forums: Snapshots only transmit the following data from the Command Center: The value of ANY (I read ALL) Instant MIDI CC, Bank/Prog, MMC, and CV Out messages The state (dim value or lit value) of any CC Toggle or CV Toggle messages assigned to footswitches <<<<< This is what I am doing The state (dim or lit ) of any Ext Amp messages assigned to footswitches I was originally trying to add a MIDI CC Toggle to an stompbox footswitch assigned to a Helix speaker cab block so I could switch from Speaker to Flat Mode in the PowerCab, depending on whether my Helix cab block was On or Bypassed. The default state would be with the Helix cab block bypassed and the PowerCab's preset in Speaker Mode. (The PowerCab Preset is in Speaker Mode by default) It seemed to work, but then stops working correctly - the values sent to the PowerCab were out of sync with the Helix cab block. So I then created a stand-alone MIDI CC Toggle footswitch to control the PowerCab preset Mode. I created it in Command Center with the Dim value = 1 (Speaker MODE) ; and the Lit value = 0 (Flat MODE) (this correspond to the Dim = bypassed and Lit = On, status of the cab block and its footswitch) It worked fine in stompbox mode. Toggling the PowerCab Preset Mode correctly when I pressed the footswitch. I set both the MIDI CC Toggle footswitch states and the cab block footswitch states together (and DIM) for each snapshot. I went into Helix snapshot mode and the first snapshot I pressed (remember ALL snapshots are set up for PowerCab Speaker Mode) sent the PowerCab into FLAT Mode! I went back to Helix stompbox mode to check the footswitches. They were all in their original (DIM) states; however, when I press the MIDI CC Toggle footswitch, it does toggle the SPEAKER/FLAT modes in PowerCab, but the States are REVERSED from what is displayed in Command Center. (It is NOW Dim=0 and Lit=1) I have cleared and rebuilt this scenario a half-dozen times with the same result each time. This was the same problem I had when I had the Helix cab block and the MIDI CC Toggle attached to the same footswitch, so it appears it has something to do with the MIDI CC Toggle message in Command Center. I had seen a note in the Helix User Manual stating that putting two blocks on the same footswitch could randomly change their relative states. (coming on/off at the same time versus going on/off opposite of each other. (e.g., switching between two amp blocks) Am I doing something wrong, or asking the system to do something it can't do? Will this be addressed/fixed/improved when Helix and PowerCab begin communicating over L6L? Help!!!
