    Helix jazz tones

    I'm new to Helix, having used it for about 3 weeks. I have had no history of working with modeling equipment and software. I've gone through most of Jason Sadites' tutorials - very instructive and helpful. I am interested in developing some presets for jazz guitars, particularly hollow bodies such as the D'Angelico Excel EXL1. I'm looking for a clean, round sound. I've attached a preset I made with dual amps and cabs, hopefully to give more depth to the tone. I'm using a Roland 40 amp, but plugging the Helix into the effects jack on the back; this appears to bypass the preamp. The tone was created for the D'Angelico. I applied some compression to the lows and highs of both modeled amps to decrease muddiness and too bright tonalities. I used EQs to specifically target frequencies which feed back on the guitar. Any thoughts/assistance in the elements and/or layout of the preset would be much appreciated. Randall RBS JC40 EXL1b.hlx
  4. As I run my Line 6 UX 2 today, all the presets were gone. I refreshed the presets in the tab and after it it was empty. Newest software has been downloaded but this has not fixed my problem.

    Snapshots & Presets

    Hi, Anyone use Snapshots and Non Snapshot presets? Current snapshots doesn't give me enough space for additional foot switchable effects.
  6. Hi, I am new to using digital equipment (analog guy) and I replaced my pedal board for an HX Effects. Amp channel switching works fine in preset mode. However, if I want to switch to another preset, there is this short time of no sound, to load the other preset. Here comes in the snapshots, so that problem is solved. But now i cannot use amp channel switching in snapshot mode. Is there solutions/workaround to be able to switch between channels AND without that short period of nothing to load another preset or sound? I hope somebody has an answer to this.
  7. Hi! hoping to share some presets for the HX effects and try some from others. Is their a good place to find / download these as well as IRs. Thanks
  8. I'm loving my Helix for live use and recording. To bring this powerful unit over the top I think LINE 6 should petition/hire Pete Thorn to create and share his presets for the HELIX. I recently watched a Pete Thorn video where he set up a Helix to act as a backup should his amp setup run into technical issues. Given this musician's talent for creating tones, I would imagine these to be VERY realistic sounding patches. In addition, I participated in a chat where Pete himself said he would be game for creating something for Line 6 :-) What do you think Line 6/Helix users?
  9. Hello all, I have an Amplifi 150. When the amp is not connected to a bluetooth phone or tablet, it has 4 "favorite" presets accessible trough the TONE button. To which bank on the remote app do these presets correspond? Bank 1 or the user bank 25 at the end of the list? Thanks.
  10. I just bought a used Line 6 Spider 3 HD150 head from Guitar Center. I powered it up and started to play (through headphones as I do not yet have the cab for it) and it worked fine for about 30 seconds. I looked down at my FBX longboard and noticed that it had switched banks by itself from Bank 2 to Bank 3. I switched it back to Bank 2 and the preset channel I was using, then the sound cut out. After 2 seconds it came back. Then it started doing it over and over. I noticed it was actually powering off and on repeatedly. Any advice on steps I should take to correct the issue? I have 45 days to return it if I can't fix it. Thanks in advance.
  11. My PODHD500 custom presets were deleted once I synced my HD500 with HD500 Edit. Do I have to start over or is there a way to get them back?
  12. Okay, I can't seem to find an answer to this online. All of a sudden, my global settings aren’t saving. I had it set to snap/stomp mode, and 10 switches, but whenever I power it on now, it goes to preset mode and doesn't save the mode I previously set it to. Also, my Helix used to power up on the same preset it was on when powered down, now it just goes to 1A Factory Preset. The only thing I changed was, I was messing with the midi settings the other night, trying to get a midi foot controller I have, to talk to and control the Helix, so I may have changed a midi channel or preference, but that's it.

A: During the Pocket POD update using the Line 6 Monkey software on a Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit) machine, the update may stop and will not continue. This may occur on certain USB ports. This issue can be verified if the progress bar stops partway through the update.

    Helix and MainStage

    Hi Guys Im having problems using Helix to control MainStage. I have set up Helix to have a preset for each song in my set, I want MainStage to have a playback and metronome click for each preset. I have successfully got Helix and MS synced up so when I change presets it changes patches on MS using an instant command in command centre. I also set up 2 switches on my Helix for each patch, one to turn on the metronome, the other to turn on a playback in MS. That works fine. However when I change presets using the Helix it also immediately fires either the metronome or the playback neither of which I want to happen. Ive tried all sort of combinations in MS but can't seem to stop it happening. Im no expert in midi so maybe my commands are wrong - Im using CC toggle commands for the playback and metronome but have no idea what CC# means so have tried different numbers which does nothing. Then I read on this forum that when Helix sends PC commands it also send all the other commands as well so Im wondering if this is the issue. Any help on this would be appreciated

Spider IV 75, 120, 150 and HD150 - Song Settings Q: Is there an editor for the Spider IV (75, 120, 150, 150 HD) series amplifier? A: Yes, see the following link for details: Spider IV Edit v1.02 FAQ Q: What are the amp models on the Spider IV 75/120/150/150HD?* Clean Red - Based on the clean channel of the Marshall® JCM 900, the first true modern high gain amp from Marshall. Select Clean Red to get crisp, amazing clean tones, great warm jazz tones, and all the high-end shimmer you’ll need with a generous amount of bottom end. Clean Green - We developed this amp model to emulate those late 60s and early 70s clean tones. We modeled a 1973 Hiwatt® custom 100, then extended the tone control range and tightened up the low end for that big, ringing sound. Twang Red - This amp model draws on our analysis of mid 60s Fender® amps, in particular the blackface ’65 Twin Reverb®. We wanted that classic, glassy high end tone, with enough snap and bite for some serious chick’n pick’n. Things don’t get too crunchy until you reach the top range of the Drive knob. Twang Green - There’s nothing like the sound of the classic Fender® blackface Deluxe Reverb®, the Holy Grail for many blues, country and roots rockers. Class A Red - Ready, steady....GO! This amp model is based on a Vox® AC-30 amplifier with an updated and expanded TBX tone control circuit. We wanted to capture that early pop rock tone that many British invasion bands are so well known for. Class A Green - There are some great modern amps out today based on the legendary tones of yesteryear. Here’s our take on the EL84 circuit of a Divided By 13 9/15 Model. Blues Red - This amp model is inspired by that famous vintage tweed sound we all know and love. We evaluated a ’53 Fender® wide panel Deluxe and this is what we came up with. Blues Green - Blues Green is based on a Gretsch® 6156, a 1960 1x10 combo from the days when rock’n’roll took the blues to a new level. Add some reverb and a slap echo and be-bop-alu-la! Crunch Red - This sound was crafted during our studies of the ‘68 Marshall® Plexi 50 Watt, which was used by a number of early metal bands. Hi Gain Red provides a wider range of tone control settings than the original jumpered Marshall®, allowing you to bump up the mids even at the highest Drive settings. Crunch Green - Here’s our inspired interpretation on a 2005 Orange® AD-30TC, a 30 watt, Class A head that oozes pure Brit rock tone, taking 60s crunch to a new level. Hi Gain Red - Plexi On Fire! This amp model is based on a ‘68 Marshall® Plexi 100 watt with a few added extras; the combination of a Variac and the jumpered input channels creates that infamous brown sound that will feel like flames are shooting out the input jack! Hi Gain Green - Hi Gain Green was inspired by the Diezel® Herbert, the 180 watt Ducati of high performance guitar amplifiers, featuring a huge, tight low end. Metal Red - For this amp model we took the classic Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® and added a few enhancements. The resulting Amp Model has a definite modern flavor. This monster truck of tone delivers a bottom end that’s big, powerful, tight and fast. Use Metal Red to get a punchy, high gain Metal sound. Metal Green - This sound was created to be an aggressive high gain Amp Model with a unique Mid control that will sweep though an entire spectrum of tone on one knob. With the Mid knob is set to minimum, the distortion exhibits Fuzz pedal characteristics. When set to noon, it mimics the creamy modern high gain amp tones. And when turned up to max, it’s reminiscent of that maxed out Class A sound. Of course there are all the places in-between... Insane Red - This model is our “dialed in for shredding� version of the Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® red channel. It combines the intensity and impact of Metal Red, but delivers more midrange and teeth for that bone-crushing, brain piercing insane grind. Insane Green - Our goal with Insane was to provide you with as much input gain distortion as possible short of complete meltdown. You get an obscene helping of distortion, while still retaining tonal definition and character. As a result, you get way more bottom end and cabinet character than other small amps. Crank up the Drive control and prepare to dominate! *All product names are trademarks of their respective owners, which are in no way associated or affiliated with Line 6.

A: When the Manual button is lit, Spider IV is operating in “Manual Mode�, meaning that all of the controls are active and the sound of the amp is determined by the current knob settings. If you are not in Manual Mode and would like to be, simply press the “manual� button. You can exit manual mode by selecting the “manual� button again, or pressing the buttons for A-D. Q: What are the specifics of the Smart Harmony effect on the Spider IV (75-150) Series? A: The Smart Harmony can be placed “pre� or “post� amp, and can perform diatonic harmony for any root note (A through G#) from a unison (no change) to a ninth interval (up to seven steps) above or below the root note. The scales included in the Smart Harmony include Major, Natural Minor, Pentatonic Major, Pentatonic Minor, Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, Whole tone, and Diminished scale. The overall mix of the Smart Harmony effect can be programmed and stored per patch from 0-100%. Q: What are the specifics of the Pitch Glide effect on the Spider IV (75-150) Series? A: The Pitch Glide can be placed “pre� or “post� amp, and the Heel and Toe positions of the FBV can be programmed two octaves above or below the incoming note in ½ steps (semi-tones) increments. Be aware that the number “7� in this situation equals 3.5 steps (because of the half step measurements) rather than an interval of a seventh (5.5 steps) that would be heard when using the Smart Harmony effect. The overall mix of the Pitch Glide effect can be programmed and stored per patch from 0-100%. Q: Where can I learn more about using the Smart Harmony and Pitch Glide features? Q: I already have an original FBV controller, will this work on the Spider IV 75-150 series? A: The FBV (Mk I) controllers will control most of the standard functions on the Spider IV 75-150 series with a few limitations. Here is a breakdown of the limitations: FBV Express 1. The FBV Express (Mk I) cannot punch in and out overdubs. It just starts record once for a single pass. The FBV Express Mk II can control the overdub feature. 2. The FBV Express (Mk I) cannot arm the Quick Loop. The quick loop must be armed by pressing the amp front panel. The FBV Express MkII can arm the Quick Loop by pressing down either the A+B or C+D footswitches. This is what takes you out of Looper mode as well. FBV Shortboard The FBV Shortboard (Mk I) cannot arm the Quick Loop. The quick loop must be armed by pressing the Quick Loop button on the front panel. The FBV Shortboard MkII can arm the Quick Loop by pressing the (new) Function 2 button. Overdubbing works on both original and current Shortboards. All other functions are available on the FBV Mk I pedals as their Mk II counterparts. Due to the new effects layout, the FBV Shortboard FX Loop button will activate the Boost setting in the Spider IV 75-150. On the FBV Shortboard Mk II this button is labeled “Function 1�. Q: What are the specifics on the Looper function of the Spider IV (75-150) Series? A: The Spider IV (75 and above) has a 14 second looper on the amplifier that can be activated by the face of the unit or the FBV Mk II series controllers. See the following video for more looper information: Q: How do I connect the Spider IV 150/HD to the Spider Cabinet? A: The Spider IV 150 and HD is designed to see a load on *both * speaker outputs by connecting the left and the right inputs to the Spider cabinet with speaker cables. Running the Spider IV 150/ HD into a 4 ohm load may result in damage to the amplifier. Please see the following link for more information: Cabinet Connection and Ohm F.A.Q Q: Can I use two Spider cabinets with the Spider Series HD 150? A: The Spider IV 150 and HD were designed to power a single Spider Stereo Cabinet with a stereo 8 ohm load. Using two Spider cabinets would require a modification to each cab so that they are each rewired to produce a 16 ohm mono load. This modification would preferably be done by an authorized Line 6 service center, which can be located from the Service Center link on the Support page. Q: How do I connect external speakers to my Spider IV 150 amplifier? A: Line 6 recommends disconnecting the internal speakers (covering the dry-solder clips with electrical tape) and connecting both external speaker outputs to an 8 ohm (or 16 ohm) load. Do not connect just one side, as this may cause a power amp failure. Powering the internal speakers along with a external speakers may cause a power amp failure and is not supported. Q: What type of speaker is used on the Spider IV series? Spider IV 15: Custom 15 (4 ohm) Spider IV 30: Celestion G12E50 (4 ohm) Spider 1V 75/150: Celestion G12P80 (8 ohm) Spider IV 120: (2) Celestion G10P80 (8 ohm) Q: Where can I get a cover or replacement knobs for my Spider IV amplifier?

Ich habe bereits einen original MkI FBV Controller, funktioniert dieser mit dem Spider IV 75-150? Die meisten Hauptfunktionen sind auf den MkI Boards belegt mit ein paar wenigen Ausnahmen: FBV Express: Es kann keine Overdubs benutzen, es fängt einfach an aufznehmen. Dieses Problem besteht nicht bei dem MkII. Der Quick Loop funktioniert nur bedingt, Sie müssen Ihn am Frontpanel des Verstärkers starten. Beim MkII kann Quick Loop ganz einfach durch den Druck der Fußschalter A+D oder C+D gestartet werden. FBV Shortboard: Der Quick Loop funktioniert nur bedingt, Sie müssen Ihn am Frontpanel des Verstärkers starten. Beim MkII kann Quick Loop ganz einfach durch den Druck des Function 2 Knopfes gestartet werden. Overdubbing funktionert auf MkI sowie MkII. Alle anderen Funktionen sind auf dem MkI (dem originalen Shortboard) funktionstüchtig. Aufgrund des neuen Layouts jedoch, aktiviert der FX Loop knopf am alten Shortboard die Boost Einstellung und am neuen (MkII) heißt dieser Knopf „Function 1“. Was sind die Spezifikationen der Looper Funktion auf den Spider IV 75-150 Verstärkern? Der Spider IV (75 oder höher) hat eine 14 Sekunden Looper Funktion eingebaut die vorne auf dem Verstärker aktiviert werden kann. Wie kann ich mein Spider IV 150/HD an ein Spider Cab anschließen? Die Spider IV 150 und 150 HD sind dazu entworfen eine Last auf beiden Lautsprecherausgängen zu haben. Schließen Sie also bitte beide Ausgänge an die Box anhand von Lautsprecherkabeln an. Den Verstärker an eine 4 Ohm Last anzuschließen kann den Verstärker beschädigen: Cabinet Connection and Ohm F.A.Q Kann ich zwei Spider Boxen an den Spider 150 HD Verstärker anschließen? Der Verstärker ist dazu entworfen eine einzige Box angeschlossen zu haben mit stereo 8 Ohm Last. Um 2 Boxen anzuschließen, müssten beide Boxen modifiziert werden um 16 Ohm Mono zu erzeugen. Die Modifikation kann bei einem Line 6 Service Center durchgeführt werden. Wie kann ich externe Lautsprecher an den Spider IV 150 anschließen? Wir empfehlen die inneren Lautsprecher vom Verstärker zu trennen und beide externe Lautsprecher Ausgänge an 8 oder 16 Ohm anzuschließen. Aber schließen Sie immer beide Seiten an, nicht nur eine einzelne denn dies kann zu Endstufenproblemen führen. Die internen zusammen mit externen Lautsprechern anzuschließen kann auch zu Fehlern in der Endstufe führen und ist nicht unterstützt. Welche Lautsprecher werden in die Spider Verstärker eingebaut?

    Headphone setup?

    Hi, I'm still getting to grips with my Helix after a few months, so this might not be the right question! I mostly use my Helix with Headphones once the kids are in bed. I've got an entry level set of Audio-Technica ATH-M40X Headphones, which seem to have a reasonably flat response compared to my old entry level Sennheisers. I also have a pair of Mackie 4" monitors. I also use both for my PC. In terms of setup, I'm sending the Helix signal to the Speakers/Headphones via the 1/4" out, through a small Behringer mixer. I'm also mixing the PC sound through the mixer. This way I can jam to backing tracks on my PC, which is 90% of my usage. I've got a bunch of presets including paid for ones from Glenn DeLaune, Fremen, Marco Fanton and Ben Vesco (I recommend them all btw!) Some sound great on Headphones, others just don't work as well. I appreciate that headphones aren't moving as much air as a speaker, but interestingly, most sound better when I connect the headphones to the Headphone Out on the Helix. Does anyone have any suggestions to experiment with, in the preset EQ/settings? Thanks

    FX100 paired with an iPad

    I'm running an FX100 paired to an iPad and generally enjoy most of the sounds and functionality it provides. The one nagging thing that I'd like an answer to is this; When I work from the iPad, go to "my tones" and select one, the tone obviously changes but the FX100 displays the old patch and won't change to what I've selected. Anyone have a fix for this? Much appreciated.

    Save to my tones behaviour

    Has anyone else noticed any strange behaviours with writing tones to my tones? I am prompting the fire hawk fx to "save to my tones" which I would assume would over write any pre-existing tones (compared to save to my tones as) with that exact same title - however it often creates duplicates or sometimes three or four variations. Anyone notice this? I feel like if there's any slight difference in the patch - even if you use save to my tones it will create another version

    HD500X - How many presets at once

    Hi totally new here I've been searching around and can't find what I think should be a simple answer in plan english. I used to have an M13 where in latch mode you can load like 12 completely different presets at once. I am looking into buying a 500X but it looks like you can only have 4 presets loaded at once with another four "assigned" pedals for the top row? Is that right? It seems limiting?

    [ Bass Patches - Pod Hd Series ]

    Hello everyone! This is the new thread dedicated to bass presets for Pod HD series. The original thread was located in the community "Long forgotten bass players", but I think it will be better here. I hope that this thread will become a place to share experiences, knowledge, and above all, our presets for bass! To start the discussion, here's my Bass Setlist for HD500 with 20 patches: HD500 Setlist V3 - "High Output Bass Amps" (16-Jan-2013) http://www.mediafire.com/?h4yta8468nawfzt How to convert Setlists: If you have a different Pod HD, you can use this tool: http://www.jzab.de/content/pod-hd All this presets are set on a "single arm chain": What you get with this Setlist is a high volume of output using a Bass, forget the messes that involved the dual input configuration, and make the pod HD works in a very similar way to how the Bass Pod worked (regarding to mono wet and dry outputs). But here you have the advantage of being able to play your bass in true stereo, too. Now you can have a balanced sound between the bass and guitar, and record comfortably in your sequencer. I left the presets configured as inputs Guitar:Same, but please, I do not want to contribute to this confusion. Using this new configuration (let's call it "single arm chain"), the input 2 has absolutely no effect on the sound (when using the config 1 mentioned below) If you want to record two mono tracks (wet and dry, panned all the way L/R), then it makes sense to use the second input as "same" (when using the config 2 mentioned below). Unmuting the Channel 2 you actually obtain a completely dry signal from your instrument. Of course you can also use a combination of both if you want to use another instrument on channel 2. But most important is to understand that in this way we have two inputs completely separated from each other without causing strange effects in the other, or interfere in any way. As I said before, for me this has been a great discovery. Thank you very much to Meambobbo. This is the structure for v3 patches: 1- Noise Gate. I'm currently using noise gates, until I learn how to use the hard gates. I'm a little slow! More details here: http://foobazaar.com/podhd/toneGuide/ampTone#noiseGates 2- Tube comp. Almost same settings than before. 3- Classic Distortion. Still here, for now. You could also use a wah pedal or whatever else here, if you prefer. 4- Analog Chorus. I removed the ugly delay in front of the amp, and now I have a chorus. I like this effect for bass, and I think this is the best sounding of the three possible. The Dimension and Triple chorus does not sound bad, but have far fewer parameters and are therefore less controllable. In contrast, analog chorus has many controls, a vibrato mode, a tone control, etc. For now I used a basic setting, but it sounds pretty good with the reverb. 5- Studio EQ. Still here, for now. I'm not using it much now, because I have found that it can be a specific setting for each bass you use. Maybe try a parametric EQ, but it seems much more complicated for me: http://foobazaar.com/podhd/toneGuide/eq 6- Mid Focus EQ. Hi and Low pass filters, now with settings 5%-65%. Gain between 0-30% 7- Spring Reverb. I used a reverb that is noticeable, but not annoying. Sounds great alongside the chorus. At least I like to use them together to have a good time. Note that when using chorus+reverb, overall volume will also rise up! I have had this in mind, so that the volume is not excessive when active. Still, if you play too hard, this could produce clip, so look first at gain settings I put into the Mid EQ. 8- FX loop. I´m using a Boss RC-300 loopstation here. About the Inputs and Mixer settings using the config above (single arm chain): Config 1: Just to play (Stereo) Input 1 - Guitar Input 2 - (Doesn´t matter, since PathB is muted.). Mixer - PathA +12 dB center, PathB Muted (panned 100%R just for convenience when using config2) Config 2: Recording (2 mono channels, Left Wet (processed), Right Dry (unprocessed, or DI) Input 2 - Guitar Input 2 - Same Mixer- PathA +12dB 100% Left, PathB +12dB 100% Right So you can: Record a stereo track selecting the stereo input, and then split the track on two separate mono tracks on your DAW. OR, arm two mono tracks on your secuencer selecting each separate mono input, and record both at the same time. Personally I like best the second approach, becouse I´m using Logic Pro, maybe in your secuencer there is an easier or practical way to do the first one.
  24. Hola,puede alguien decirme como se meten los presets descargados,
  25. Buenas A tod@a, por favor necesito saber que pasa con mi Pod Xt Live, Últimamente se baja se sube o se queda sin volumen cuando estoy tocando con el ya sea al momento de prenderlo o a veces tarda unos minutos para presentar el problema. Aparecen los controles del amplificador en la pantalla como si fuera a editarlos acompañados de el signo * al lado superior izquierdo. Esto esta bastante incomodo ya que al estar practicando a menudo sucede este problema. Ya lo actualice y nada sigue lo mismo. Gracias.
