Hi All, First time poster here so please be gentle. I'm also going to get in early and apologise for the bad forum etiquette of two topics in one post but until i receive an approved post this is the only one i get today. I have just received my Helix and been working through it to put together a configuration that works for me. currently i'm using snap/stomp and using 'mode' to see 8 stomps at once. pressing preset up/down together to see 8 snapshots. Briefly, I am planning on running the Helix as my single user interface to control : - Internal Helix effects, - Effects loop pedals, - A separate dB11 effects loop extender (midi controlled) - Bias FX on iPad (midi through usb) - Onsong on iPad (midi through usb) So my first question is, Is there any way to 'bank' through stomps within a preset? As it is possible to load many more than 10 stomps in a single preset, i was hoping there might be a way to cycle through pages of these using the FS1 and FS7 but i can't find it. The second question is a little more convoluted. I have midi commands set up through command centre to trigger from FS8-11 and named these (being careful to remove all other assignments from these FS) and that works great to control Onsong through usb midi (previous/next song, scroll up/down). What has thrown me is that if i press 'Preset up and down' together to display snapshots on all 8 FS, i find that the midi commands in FS8-11 are still triggered as i select a snapshot from that row. I was hoping that the snapshot would suspend the momentary midi program change commands under these 4 switches and then re-enable them for use once the snapshot is selected. Has anyone else come up against this and found a solution?
This is my goal. I want to set up the bottom row of buttons to be specific tones. Example: metal/clean/classic rock/acoustic Sim. Then I would like my top row of buttons to be stomps that I can add to any given tone from the bottom row. Example: phaser/pitch shifter/boost/chorus. Is there any possibility that the helix can be set up this way? Essentially, this is the type of setup that I use on my XT LIVE.
Hey folks - I've got my floor unit set up to have 4 snapshots across the bottom, 4 stomps across the top for each preset. The goal is for each preset to represent a specific amp/guitar tone with the snapshots set for common or specific song parts (verse, chorus, lead, etc). I'm hoping to use the 4 stomps for in-the-moment adjustments, adding or bypassing an effect, etc. It's close, BUT. I find that when I select a stomp, the selection applies only while I stay in the same snapshot. When I switch to the next section of the tune, the effect won't be there unless I kick it again. I was hoping/assuming the stomps would stay active across snapshots. Like saying "If I stomp this, just leave it on in all my snapshots until I un-stomp it." But I can't find a setting to make it so. Am I asking too much? Doing it wrong? I find this is the most confusing part of working with Helix. Here's what a sample preset looks like for me right now: Preset: 12A Telecaster Twin FS2-5 = stomps (e.g. slapback, chorus, etc) FS7-10 = snapshots (e.g. clean, overdrive, lead built with a combination of amp, IR, distortion, compression, EQ and reverb) Thanks for any insights you've got!
Hi! Got my Helix this Friday and have spent some time setting things up, it is really transparent, even in my amps extremely transaprent FX-loop there's hardly any discernible tonal change (had to tweak around a bit with line vs instrument level, input impedance etc). HOWEVER!!! Going absolutely crazy here and need HELP! My channel has 4 channels, each channel has boost, pregain, fat-switch and other functions dedicated and midi switchable. So, I set up the helix with bottom row presets (one for each channel) and top row stomps within that preset. This way I can have 5 "variations" on each channel (and 4CM). So, the preset row was easy, I just hit that preset and activate the combinations I want ont he amp, and flip the save toggle on the amp, done! However, example: on preset one (clean), I want the stomp right above that to activate the boost (via midi) and delay at the same time. However, whatever I try in the midi menu it doesn't work. if I save the preset with the delay/boost stomp in off mode and save the amp, fine, that's what engages when I activate that preset. but if I now activate the boost on the amp and hit the delay stomp, and press the save toggle on the amp (not saving on the Helix) it will save that info to the PRESET. So, if I now hit preset two to go to channel two, when I hit preset one again, it will default to the clean channel WITH the boost engaged (and switching the delay stomp on and off does nothing). It's like ONLY the preset row can send midi program change info to the amp PS. for all the presets, I've no assigned ANYTHING to those switches in the global menu, it's like the Helix is still sending something out and the amp saves that info, hence the presets always work just as any midi footswitch I've used in the past, but the stomp row does not. OF course, I could opt to ONLY use presets, but that would leave me with 8 only, I would MUCH rather have it set up as above with on/off switchable stuff within the preset for a total of 20 variations on bank 1 alone. HELP, HILFE, HJÃ„LP!
