    Helix MIDI preset changes V2.81

    This post is for those who use a PC to trigger MIDI events in Helix. Since I updated to the 2.8 firmware, my USB connectivity for MIDI is not working. I’ve checked all of my settings, reinstalled the ASIO audio driver and validated my USB connection to the PC as I’m able to control Helix perfectly through HX Edit app. I also validated the issue by reverting back to 2.71 and testing and everything worked fine. I also copied all of the global settings so I could reset them all in 2.8. Well, the issue is back and I don’t know what to try next. Any known issues or ideas you can share with us? I really need to resolve this before my upcoming live performances, thanks!
  2. Hi, fellow Helixoids! I've just released 13 new Helix sound sets, available at the Helix Marketplace. I've taken an unusual approach: While we all know that Helix is great at mimicking classic analog gear, I've been exploring Helix as the unique and powerful instrument it is, with an emphasis on startling new tones that could only have been created in Helix. I think these sounds will appeal to restlessly creative players in search of new tones and textures. (Admittedly, they're probably not suitable for REO Speedwagon cover bands.) Each board sell for $13 and has its own demo video at the above link. There's also a combo back offering all 13 sets at a 40% discount. Its demo video, which provides a taste of all 13 products, is a good starting point if you're curious. Thanks for listening! :)
  3. Deutsch Français Q: Where can I find videos on how to use the Spider IV amplifier? Spider IV movies Q: Where can I download the Spider IV Pilot's Guide and Advanced Guide? Spider IV Advanced Guide Spider IV Pilot's Guide Q: What are the presets on my Spider IV amplifier? A: The user presets and artist/song presets for the Spider IV can be seen at Spider IV presets.xlsx. There are the 64 user-programmable presets, over 350 Artist Presets, and over 200 song and effect-based presets. Be aware that the artist, song, and effect based presets cannot be saved in their current location, but you can modify and/or store these setting in one of the 64 user-programmable presets. If you would like to return your unit to the original presets, please perform a factory reset. Q: How are the preset banks categorized? A: The User, Artist, and Song Banks can be navigated by using the left/right buttons on the four-way selector. You can navigate through the banks once you are in the specific area using the up/down buttons on the four-way selector, then once you are in the specific bank you can access the individual presets by turning the presets encoder key. Q: How do I perform a factory Reset on the Spider IV series amplifiers? A: Hold the A button as you power the unit on, then press the presets encoder once. ***NOTE: If an FBV controller is connected to the Spider IV during the Factory Reset, the LCD screen on the FBV will go blank. To return the display, simply press a footswitch on the FBV or disconnect/reconnect the CAT5 cable to the FBV. Q: Where are the "bonus" presets that are not programmed into the amp? 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, its 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?

Wir haben dazu einen Hiwatt® custom 100 als Vorlage verwendet und die Tonreichweite modifiziert für einen tollen klingelnden Sound. Twang Red: Dieses Modell ist das Resultat unserer Analyse von Fender® Verstärkern der 60er Jahre, ganz besonders des 65er Blackface Twin Reverb®.

Wenn der Manual Mode Knopf leuchtet, dann ist der Manual Mode eingeschaltet, der Ihnen volle Knotrolle über den Verstärker verleiht. Alle Einstellungen sind also aktiv und der Ton des Verstärkers hängt vollkommen von den Einstellungen der Knöpfe ab. Drücken Sie einfach den „Manual“ Knopf um den Manual Mode ein- und auszuschalten. Was sind die Spezifikationen des Smart Harmony Effektes auf den Spider IV 75-150 Verstärkern? Der Smart Harmony Effekt kann auf Pre oder Post gestellt werden und liefert eine diatonische Harmonie für alle Grundtöne vom Einklang zum neunten Intervall über oder unter der Grundnote. Enthalten sind Major, Naural Major, Pentatonisches Major, Pentatonisches Moll, harmonisches Moll, melodisches Moll, voller Ton sowie eine verminderte Skalierung. Der Mix das Effektes kann von 0 bis 100% eingestellt und einzeln auf Patches abgespeichert werden. Was sind die Spezifikationen des Pitch Glide Effektes auf den Spider IV 75-150 Verstärkern? Der Pitch Glide Effekt kann auf Pre oder Post gestellt werden und die zwei Pedal Stellungen des FBV können auf 2 Oktaven rauf und runter in Halbschritten programmiert werden. 7 bedeutet in diesem Fall also 3,5 Schritte anstelle eines siebtel Intervalls, wie man es sich eigentlich vorstellen könnte. Der Mix das Effektes kann von 0 bis 100% eingestellt und einzeln auf Patches abgespeichert werden. Wo kann ich mehr über Smart Harmony und Pitch Glide lernen? 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? Spider IV 15: Custom 15 (4Ohm) Spider IV 30: Celestion G12E50 (4Ohm) Spider IV 75/150: Celeston G12P80 (8Ohm) Spider IV120: 2x Celestion G10P80 (8Ohm) Wo kann ich Ersatzteile oder in Schutzhülle für mein Spider IV kaufen?

    Customtone creators: PLEASE ADD NOTES

    I really appreciate the care that a lot of you put into your custom tones, and have been pretty impressed with some of your work. And even when I wasn't exactly impressed - which says more about me than it does about you - I still valued the time and thought that you put into posting your custom tone creations. But we don't all have the same musical knowledge you have, so we don't all know what you're aiming for when you post a custom preset that has no notes in it beyond the title. And we all want to know what you were aiming for/what sound you intended to achieve with your custom presets. So please, don't worry about spelling or grammar, just pretend the person who's reading it doesn't understand what you mean by your preset title and needs some explanation, which only you can provide by way of entering a description of the tone in the "Comments" field when you upload it. I guarantee you it increases your downloads, and who knows? Maybe one day you build enough visibility that you can sell them for some dough to fund your next Line 6 purchase. Thanks -

    2.8 Lost Preset Fire Woman

    A factory preset called 'Fire Woman' was lost when upgrading to v2.8 and I am hoping someone might have an archive of the original. The 'Fire Woman' preset had a Weeper wah, Bucket Brigade delay, Script Mod Phase modulation and Plate verb.

    Helix presets ready to mix

    Hallo all! Just made all the guitar amps of helix ready for mix, dual tracked, equalized, etc. Just upload these to your helix and enjoy! P.s. All amps have different sound, some are for busy mix, other are overwhelming, other underwhelming. Depends on the mix. Meaning, that your favorite amp may not sound what you like. Instead, I made all amps with different flavors. Close your eyes, and try the amp by each own. You will not believe that the amp x works better than your favorite amp on the mix. Also, please try and give a comment. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4r7gucctc4ydkye/AACzuVidRrsSbORyqG72fpwSa?dl=0 p.s.2 for the jtv users, i used the bundle to make these sounds, https://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=24065.0

    How to save presets??

    Dude this is getting ridiculous. How do I save newly created presets and changes?? I'm using Logic Pro X and I cannot for the life of me figure out what I am doing wrong here. I create a preset or I make changes to a preset, I click the drop down at the top left of the Helix Native plug-in and click SAVE. It acts like it saves something. I double click to a different preset then back. Changes are GONE. WTF am I doing wrong? Please help me as I am at the end of my rope here. I wanted to create, not perform IT functions in order to be able to do so. Thank you to anyone that can help me out here.

    links to download presets

    Hi, I'm new to the Helix LT and I'm looking for links to download presets. I have seen here a topic where a lot of links to download IRs and cabs are included and I wonder if there is something similar for the presets Thank you! regards!
  12. Application Q: What are the presets on my Spider Valve Mk II amplifier? A: There are 64 presets (16 banks of 4) programmed into the amplifier at the factory, and 64 “empty� preset locations for an end user to program. The “empty� 64 preset locations have defaults (1-4) in them as a starting place. Q: I noticed that the Artist/Song Presets from the Spider IV are not present on the Spider Valve Mk II? A: Yes, as many end users had asked for more locations to store their personal presets, we have removed the artist/song presets for the Spider Valve Mk II. Q: Are the Spider Valve Mk II series amps Mono(phonic)? A: Yes, the Spider Valve Mk II series amplifiers have a monophonic output (as are most tube amplifiers). Q: How can I connect a POD unit to my Spider Valve Mk II series amplifier? POD Connections, Routing and the 4 Cable Method Q: Do the Master volume and presence control applied to the power amp section only? A: Yes, the master volume and presence control are true analog. Q: Where is the Master volume located in the chain? A: it is after the preamp, and before the power amp. Specifications Q: What are the specifications of the Spider Valve Mk II series? Spider Valve Mk II Specifications Q: What speakers are used in the Spider Valve Mk II amplifiers? Spider Valve 112: Celestion Vintage 30, 8 ohm Spider Valve 212: (2) Celestion Vintage 30s, 16 ohm Spider Valve 412 cabinet: (4) Celestion Vintage 30s, 16 ohm Q: What tubes ship in the Spider Valve Mk II amplifiers? What is the power output? Spider Valve Mk II 112 & 212: (2) Sovtek 12AX7B preamp tubes, (2) Sovtek 5881/6L6WGC power amp tubes. 40 watts. Spider Valve Mk II HD: (2) Sovtek 12AX7B preamp tubes, (4) Sovtek 5881/6L6WGC power amp tubes. 100 watts. Q: What are the function of the 12AX7 tubes? A: V1 is the booster to the output tubes, V2 is the phase inverter for the output tubes. When viewing the SV MKII HD100 upright from the back, V1 is on the right side. On the combo, V1 is on the left side. Q: Can the Spider Valve Mk II handle another 12A_7 style tube without damage to tubes or circuitry? A: Yes, but as these tubes act as a phase inverter and a boost to the power amp (rather than traditionally "cleaning up" the preamp section), you may not get the result you are looking for. Q: What Line 6 controllers work with the Spider Valve Mk II series amplifier? Controller compatibility chart Setup/Connection Q: Is there a bias switch to change the power tubes to EL-34s or other power tube types? A: No, the Spider Valve Mk II does not offer bias switchable options and was designed to only be used with 6L6 power amp output tubes. Q: Is there a headphone output on the Spider Valve Mk II series? A: There is no headphone output on the Spider Valve Series, but you can use the XLR output to go to a mixer, then use the headphone jack from the mixer. Q: Can I run my Spider Valve Mk II amplifier without a speaker load? A:No, you cannot run the Spider Valve Mk II series without a speaker load. Please see the following link for more information on cabinet connections: Cabinet Connection and Ohm F.A.Q. Q: Can the Spider Valve Mk II be run with a Variac? A: This is not recommended as the lower voltage can cause problems with the digital processing in the Preamp section of the Spider Valve Mk II. Q: Can I run a Palmer S.E., THD Hot Plate, Power Soak, etc. for speaker simulation or power attenuation? A: There are no known issues regarding the use of any direct recording simulators or power attenuators between the power amp output and the speaker cabinet, but if there is damage caused by improper connections or malfunctioning gear it will not covered under the Line 6 warranty. Q: Do the Spider Valve Mk II 112 and 212 combos support external speaker cabinets? If so, will the external cabs mute the internal speakers of the Spider Valve Mk II? A: Yes, the Spider Valve Mk II supports the use of additional cabinets. Please ensure that the ohm load is correct to avoid damaging your amplifier if you intend to use both the internal and external speakers simultaneously. Q: What is the bias voltage for the Sovtek 5881WXT tubes? A: 35 mV (+/-2mV) Q: Does the XLR output still send signal when the amplifier is on standby? A: In some cases yes, in some no. Spider Valve MkII actually has two different modes of Direct Out, which can be found in the SETUP menu in Edit Mode. They are Studio and Performance. Studio mode is a traditional, DSP POD-style output with speaker simulation and will function when the amplifier is in standby mode. In contrast, Performance mode takes a tap off the output transformer, then goes through the speaker simulation before going through the Direct Out. This allows the tubes to interact with the DSP, and because the amp has to be on to allow this to happen, there will be no signal at the XLR output in standby if Performance mode is selected. Q: Does the Spider Valve Mk II have an FX loop? A: the Spider Valve Mk II has a pre-amp out (effect send) and Power amp in (effect return) section. Q: Is the effect loop series or parallel? Is the effect loop mono or stereo? A: The effect loop is series mono. Q: Does the Spider Valve Mk II have MIDI ports? A: Yes, the Spider Valve Mk II amplifier series has both MIDI in and MIDI out ports, and the Spider Valve Mk II will accept MIDI program changes on MIDI Channel 1-16, from values 00-127. The MIDI channel assignment can be accessed by pushing the “preset� encoder and using the left/right arrow key to reach “MIDI�. This greatly increases the opportunity to integrate Spider Valve MkII’s into your existing rig, and will also allow you to update your amps firmware via MIDI. See the advanced user’s guide for the full MIDI story. Q: Can I send a MIDI output from the Spider Valve Mk II to another MIDI-capable Line 6 amplifier and control both amplifiers with one FBV controller? A: Yes, but as different Line 6 amplifiers have different MIDI implementation you will want to go through each control on the FBV to ensure that you get the desired control on both units. Q: Is there an editor where I can connect my Spider Valve Mk II to my computer and edit/store tones? A: Yes, Spider Valve Edit is the editing software that can be used to edit the Spider Valve Mk II. Please see the following link for more information: Spider Valve Edit FAQs Q: What do the FBV Shortboard series stomp, FX Loop/Function 1, and Function 2 do? A: The Stomp button activates the "boost" on both the original FBV shortboard series (Mark I) and Mark II controllers. The FX Loop (Mk I)/Function 1 (Mk II) activates the Noise gate. The Function 2 (Mk II only) activates the loop feature on the Spider Valve Mk II. Q: What do the FBV Shortboard MkII Function 1 and Function 2 buttons do with Spider Valve MkII? How is it different from the original FBV Shortboard? A: The Function 1 button activates the Boost setting saved with each preset. The Boost setting (up to 8db pre and/or post amp model) can be found by entering “edit mode� on the SV MkII and pressing the R arrow on the 4-way nav button. The button equivalent to Function 1 on the original FBV Shortboard is labeled FX Loop. The Function 2 button (FBV Shortboard MkII only) is equivalent to the Quick Loop button on the faceplate of the SV MkII, and arms the built in Looper. For full functionality of the Looper, see the Spider Valve MkII Advanced User Guide. In addition, the Stomp button activates the first Smart FX on both the original and MkII FBV Shortboard controllers. Q: Can I run the Spider Valve Mk II head with only the outer two power tubes (removing the inner pair) to operate at a lower output volume? A: Yes, it is safe to run the Spider Valve Mk II Head with two 6L6s. It is recommended that the output impedance be run at "half" when running in this configuration. An example would be running the 8 ohm head output connected to the 16 ohm cabinet connection, or the 4 ohm output to an an 8 ohm cabinet connection. Line 6 recommends re-biasing your amplifier to 35mv after removing the tubes, as the current draw will have changed. Q: Where is the fuse located in the chain? A: The fuse is located between the 12AX7s and 6L6s (there is no “master� fuse). Spider Valve Cabinet FAQs Q: What are the specs for the Line 6 4x12 cabinet? A: 9 ply, ¾� wood with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers. There is no “internal baffle�. Q: What are the ohm load options for the 4x12 cabinet? A: The switchable ohm load options for the 4x12 cabinet are 16 ohm mono, 8 ohm stereo, and 4 ohm mono. Trouble shooting Q: What is the manufacturer’s warranty for Spider Valve Mk II? A: The warranty for the Spider Valve Mk II amplifier is 12 months from the date of purchase, the tubes warranty is 90 days from the date of purchase. Q: How do I perform a factory reset on my Spider Valve Mk II? A: The factory reset for the Spider Valve Mk II series is to hold the "A" button while powering the unit, then pushing the “presets� encoder twice. Q: I hear a loud "pop" when I switch between certain presets on the Spider Valve MKII. Is this normal? A: Sometimes if the Channel Volume is set or saved too low on a preset a loud pop will be heard when navigating to it and away from it. This is because of the level difference between it and the other saved presets. Try adjusting the preset's Channel Volume above "12:00" and saving again. This should level out the difference between the presets and eliminate the popping sound. Q: Will using different brands of 6L6 tubes in the Spider Valve Mk II void the warranty? A: No, feel free to experiment with other tubes of the same type as long as they are correctly biased. Q: My amp seems to be malfunctioning. What can I do as an end user?

  13. Hey ya'll, I searched the forums for this exact question and haven't had any luck yet. I'm still fairly new to the HX Stomp. I wish to move through the Presets (i.e. 35b, 35c, 36a, 37b, etc), while in stompbox mode, with my foot instead of bending down to turn the top wheel. Is that possible with an external pedal of some kind, or is there a way within the Stomp itself? Maybe I completely missed this in the manual. Thanks!

    Amp+Cab Preset Pack

    bit.ly/AmpCabPack These are (now 31) very simple Amp+Cab presets for any Helix device with amp models, meant to be a “jumping off” point for bigger presets. Every preset contains an Amp+Cab block, with a few of the amp’s parameters assigned to Footswitch 1 for a different sound, kind of a Clean/Dirty channel thing. There are two folders, one for Stomp and one for the Floor/LT/Rack/Plugin (the later named “Full”). These presets were programmed with an HX Stomp playing though Yamaha HS5 studio monitors in a treated room, cross­referenced with a QSC K8.2. I’ve tweaked each preset using 4 guitars so they’ll hopefully sound good with whatever you’re plugging in with minimal tweaks. The 4 guitars I used are: a vanilla Strat with a MIJ Body with MIM electronics and a Warmoth neck, a Strat with 500k pots, a SD Hot Rails in the bridge position and noiseless single coils (bright sound) — a stock PRS S2 Standard 24 (warm sound) — and an Ibanez Iron Label S 7 string with Dimarzio Ionizers (high output). Yes, I ran a 7 String through a Fender Champ model and it was FUN! Leave some feedback or questions if you'd like. Thanks and enjoy, Alex Kenivel PS this is the third revision of this pack. More presets will be added so watch this space for more.

    Variax Standard, you complete me

    I finally found a great deal on a (not) scratch n dent V-Standard at SW, and after 2.2 days I'm starting to get blown away. Let me back up. I entered the modeling realm with an HD500 when they were fresh (what, 2010?), thinking that I'd have more capability than the Spider Valve MkI that amazed me. First thing I noticed on the POD was that all the stock presets sucked. Playing at very low volume, I had to develop my own, which relied on a fair bit more gain than I'd normally go for in order to achieve any kind of crunch. I moved from FRFR to DT amps, but still, always kinda had more gain than I wanted (except when I went totally clean with the lovely Twin model). I picked up a Variax 600 and finally reached "dream rig" status, but really only liked the Strat models, Tele neck, and the Rick bridge. The alt tunings seemed kinda crappy too. Most of the other electric models were just too loud--much louder and with more gain than my real guitars with hot pups. When I first tried my new V-Standard, it was looking like more of the same (except usable mags). So I wondered, how do I get away from my presets with too much gain and into presets that work for my Variax? In an epiphany of sorts, I started trying out all those presets in my HD500 that sucked, and guess what? NO MO SUCKY! They're amazing, for the most part. Also, to my surprise, they all have variax settings already. So all I had to do was plug my dream rig in, using an ethernet cable and the digital L-6 Link, and now folks, I hardly have to tweak, I can just play my heart out! Turns out those patches were very well crafted using Variaxes of some kind, and so far about 2/3 are keepers! Has anyone else noticed this as well, or am I the first to stumble on this total treasure chest? The magnetic pickups are pretty sweet too! But the other thing I'm really thrilling over is the neck on the Variax Standard. I was afraid that something this flat, this thin, and with medium frets might not work for my aging knuckles, but I gotta tell you that even with 10's at concert pitch this thing is a joy for my hand! It's the most comfortable neck I've felt since the Japanese Variax 700 I've been wishing I'd have bought--and that's saying a lot. I do have questions: Is the light on the alt tuning knob supposed to be only momentary (unless you go to the "model" position)? I wish the thing would stay lit in mag mode so I could dial up the tuning I want without activating all those other tunings in between. Does anybody know how hard it would be to change pick guards? I'm thinking white would look very sweet with my sunburst brown... THANKS!!! Mike

    The spider remote has 4 user banks. How do I save a preset to one of those banks. Thank you.

    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
  19. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
