  1. Hey! I am helping a friend set his stomp up and he wants an external tap tempo switch. I was able to reassign button 3 and then use at TRS cable to set up the external switch but the tempo isn't responding. If I press hold, it goes to the tuner. otherwise, it goes from 0 to 8000ms if I press or let go. I have 3 switches I am trying, just in case: an MXR tap, a strymon mini and a boss Boss FS-5U (momentary) Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    tap tempo on HX Effects

    hello, with a simple delay, i wonder why when i changed tempo by tap tempo switch, the red light is following the tapped tempo, but i get no changed tempo on sound. delay stayed with the same time as before. can you help me?
  4. Hi ! I'm using pod farm 2 on my ux8 for live sound with a dual footswitch connected at the back of the ux8. I would like to make it so that on one patch (and on this patch only), one of my footswitch is assigned to tap tempo. The problem is I didn't find how to do it, I can only set it globally which is a problem because this footswitch has other usages on other patches (including time related effects :/) Is there any way to have the tap tempo assigned to a midi control but only for one patch ?
  5. New User Here, I am purchasing a Helix LT in about a month and have a use case that I cannot seem to find any help with answering "can Helix do this?". As a setup dinosaur and to effectively be able to turn on and off an entire effects loop (as the amps I have do not have such a select-able option), I have been utilizing a Boss Line Selector on "B-Bypass" in order to have effects hard bypassed when I don't want them and to be able to select which effects turn on at one time when I engage the Line Selector. In the Line Selector loop, I have a Boss DD-6 that essentially is in Tap mode all of the time except for when I need the loop to not have delay. For me, this is super-convenient as it allows me to dial in the tempo before the pedal is even engaged. My cover band does not play to a click so for me, going back to a configuration, whether it be by preset or snapshot, where a tempo is defaulted and then having to adjust the tempo after the delay is engaged with the tap tempo is a step backwards. I have read the manual, watched videos, and read threads and I do not see a configuration in which tap tempo can be set as a "global" tempo that overrides any default patch or snapshot tempo when a patch or snapshot is engaged if I wanted to setup the tempo prior to engaging said patch or snapshot. If anyone out there has any knowledge or thoughts on this I would appreciate it! I really hope I just missed it somewhere :) However, after an already seemingly exhaustive search, I feel this may be heading to Ideascale before I even own the unit and am dreading the idea of having to cart around the DD-6 and a power supply to use in the Helix's loop :(

    BPM

    please, put the BPM information on the MAIN SCREEN, i never know what bpm my TAP tempo is running ... and it's not practical to do a soft touch on the TAP Switch on a live situation, thanks for the attention ...
  7. Hi guys, I'm trying to set up my Pod HD so that the delay is controlled by tap tempo. My settings are: - Global - Tempo (under Setup) but the tempo is currently showing 181bpm and my delay unit is set to 500ms. I want it to be 1/4 note or 1/8th note but nobody explains (neither does the manual) how you switch from a time setting to a tempo (delays per beat) setting in the delay unit. So, how do you do that?

    Tap Tempo

    I absolutely LOVE the Helix. I have one question with it though. I am a worship leader and have really enjoyed the snapshots mainly to change my tempos for delays and what not. I like to try and have all of my tempos preset so it's one less thing I have to worry about in the moment. The thing I'm not fond of is that when I touch the tempo and then use knob 6 to set my tempo, that it takes so long to actually get programed in. I don't have this quite as much anymore now that I'm using snapshots, but when I am initially setting it up it does take a while. Is there a way to have it so that when you turn that know that it will cycle through bpm in whole times and not by the tenth? Is there a setting somewhere or can Line6 develop that option? I don't know about other people, but I rarely play at a 96.3 bpm, so I would rarely dial in a tenth. Having the option to would be nice, but not needed for my application. Thanks!

    Tap Tempo across 'similar' patches

    What happens in this scenario Lets say in a bank I have 4 presets: 1. Clean 2. Crunch 3. Lead 4. Speciality Lead/FX I am playing live with my band. Because we are human or the drummer is a doofus we are playing faster (or slower than normal). At the beginning of the song I have a clean sound with some delay, so I tap tempo on the firehawk switch to get in sync. But...what about the other 3 presets (2,3 and 4) I want those presets to have the same tap tempo as what I just tapped for the intro/first preset so that when it comes time to hit on the lead patch, the tap tempo is the same. From what I gather this is not possible? As an aside...how does tap tempo work if the line 6 switches are on release? I find you have to be more 'tappy' with your foot to try to get it in time?

    MIDI over USB - tap tempo

    Hi Guys, anybody tried synchronizing tempo on Helix with MIDI CC from DAW? I used to this with POD HD and it worked fine but doesn't seem to work with Helix. Here is what I do: Helix manual says Tap Tempo is MIDI CC #64 with values 64-127. So I assume any value in this range is fine. As DAWs often don't send the same CC value repeatedly, I send values 127-126-127-126 etc. in sequence. Nothing happens, preset tempo stays the same. Just to check on something more obvious I change the CC to 57 (FS10) and voila, now the footswitch diode blinks rhytmically. So my setup seems fine, sending CCs works fine for #CC 57 but #CC 64 doesn't seem to affect Helix. Anybody tried and succeeded or has any hints? I'm on the latest firmware 1.10 and drivers (coming with Helix app 1.11). Helix is connected via USB to my Win 8.1 laptop. I tried sending the MIDI CC messages from FL Studio and Cubase, the same result (i.e. nothing...). Thanks for any help. I think I'm gonna raise a support ticket now...
  12. http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/One-Tap-press-to-reset-mod-FX-cycle/824525-23508 One press on the Tap switch restarts the modulation fx cycle without changing the tempo itself. Works on POD HD and I've been missing it since upgrading to Helix as our drummer uses click and I have the same tempo saved in my (per song) Helix presets but need to sync the start of the mod cycle (tremolo, flanger...) with the drums...

    Optical Trem Does Not Use Tap Tempo?

    Am I missing something or is there no way to use tap tempo with the Optical Trem? Thanks! Dave

    External tap tempo?

    I am thinking about investing in the M5 mostly for filters and modulation effects, I was wondering if I connect an external tap tempo to the expression socket will that work? I have a Boss DD-7 on my board and I was thinking it could be pretty cool to have a global tap tempo to sync both pedals. Has anyone tried this? Thanks for your input.

    Tap Tempo Light needs a fix!

    When you tap in a tempo, the light should continue to flash on the DOWNBEAT of the tempo you just tapped. HD500 did this, HD500x did this, my Timeline does this, etc etc. Currently, it flashes on the UPBEAT instead. I often am tapping into a click and after tapping you (NORMALLY!) get see the light flashing in sync with the click and you have quick visual confirmation that you tapped in correctly. It's completely backward on the Helix, and the only reason I can imagine for it being this way is a couple lines of bad code that need to be corrected! It's hard to see exactly what it's doing wrong with quarter note taps, so if you want to examine for yourself, I recommend tapping half notes (tap on the 1 and 3 of a 4 beat measure.) The light will faithfully flash on the 2 & 4. Cmon guys, you had it right for 5 years with the HD500… please fix this in the Helix.
  16. Is there a way to use any of the mod effects like phaser, chorus, flanger with tap tempo? I set "Tempo Select"='Global' but my mod effects don't seem to follow it. Many effects with "Rate" could have a parameter to indicate "Tap" or "Preset" which would determine if the "Rate" is to be set according to the tap tempo or the preset's "Rate" setting. That way all of the effects and delays could follow the tap tempo where desired. Is there a way to do this?
  17. Hi everybody I know this has been a problem for a lot of people and reading on here I know it relates to dodgy micro switches. Mines been a pain in the backside constantly changing while playing so I have stripped it down and sprayed the switches with switch cleaner as per some suggestions on here ..... which has cured the problem temporarily at least. While it was disassembled I noticed a difference in the four switches on the bottom row starting at the Tap Tempo. These four switches had no definite click, in fact it is hard to even know if they are moving. All the other switches click as you press them down and seem to have a spring return. There is no spring return on my tap temp switch or the three immediately next to it ( probably the four most used in my set up) My first question is .... is this normal ? are these four switches a different design to the rest? they all operate and since being cleaned the unit hasn't switched over to tuner on it's own anymore however I have a big gig coming up and am slightly worried it could start again. You can hear the others click even when the unit is assembled, but not those four so would be grateful if someone could confirm if this is normal or they are all faulty (but still working somehow) My second question if they are faulty is.... where can I get good quality replacements that won't do this again in a hurry, does anyone have a part no? and/or can I buy that whole circuit with six switches on anywhere ???? Cheers for reading!
  18. Hi all, I was wondering if any of you are using the tap tempo function with the FCB1010? I've tried and failed multiple times to set this function up. I'm trying to set up Button 10 to send the tap tempo command to the Pod HD Pro X. Can any of you advise how to do this? Many thanks! Ash

    M9 Tap Tempo Noise

    Hello all, I just received my brand new M9 in the mail. When I hit the tap tempo/looper button, there is a staticky pop noise. So far it's every time I touch it. I am using the included line 6 power adapter and it's plugged into a different outlet than my amp. The other buttons do not make any noise. This problem is at it's worse when using auto swell and particle verb as the noise builds up and creates a swell of static. Is this fixable or should I return it? Thanks!
  20. Whenever I use the tap tempo on my FBV Shortboard MKII going into my POD HD Pro, it'll work for a few taps, but then it suddenly maxes out the tempo at 240bpm. I've tried re-installing the flash memory, but the problem persists. Any ideas?
  21. Hey there, I was rediscovering POD Farm over the weekend when I decided to replicate my studio gear as close as possible, just for fun. I had a great time tweaking sims and managed to get a very close version of my current rig. I set up 4 different presets in a SetList (AC30, Citrus, BigBottom, Insane) and programmed the FBV to switch between them and also to control the effects in each preset. I hit a problem when I was trying to set a global tempo for the delays. Case in point, I have a song that has a short solo, then goes to a clean break, a quick heavy riff and finally to the big solo, and I have to run thru 3 different presets. So I start with my main rhythm (BigBottom) and right before the short solo I tap the tempo in and hit the Digital Delay in the chain. As soon as that solo ends I have to switch to the AC30 and hit the Analog Delay, but the Tempo is lost! I have no time to tap it in again and if I do so while playing the changes in phase is audible. It's a cool effect, but not what I'm going for. Then it gets even harder when the clean break ends, as I switch back to the BigBottom for the quick setup riff and then to the Insane for the solo, with Digital Delay, and the Tempo is lost again. What am I doing wrong? Does the Tap Tempo in POD Farm only work per preset? Is there a Global function I can configure so if it's sync'd to say 100bpm it keeps that value between preset changes?

    POD HD problems

    Hi Guys I'm a first time poster here, but have used Line 6 products for countless years. I've always found them to be great products and a great company. I first started off with a Flextone III, then progressed to the POD XT, Pod XT Pro, Variax 600, Pod HD500, Pod HD500X and most recently the James Tyler Variax. When I purchased my Pod HD500, I found that after a little while the switches started to become a little unresponsive. I was gigging this unit week in week out, and so when the HD500X came along I jumped ship knowing that it featured better switches. The HD500X had been solid until a couple of weeks ago where the tap tempo would randomly flash (without me touching it) then rapidly flash before kicking into tuner mode. This was incredibly frustrating, especially when performing or recording..... I called Line 6 and said that since I'm in Nuneaton, could I drop it off to their place in Rugby (20 mins away at most). I was told that it had to go back to the place of purchase (in Derby). I said that I needed it looking at as I have a ton of gigs and it provides my main income. I was happy to pay whatever it costed to get it fixed there and then, but they told me that they couldn't do this. I spoke to the shop where I purchased it, and they contacted Line 6 on the 22nd May to organise a return. They said as long as I had a returns number I could drop it over to save me a trip to Derby. I'm still waiting for a returns number...... I appreciate Line 6 are a busy company, but to put this in perspective, the drummer from my band cracked a Sabian cymbal on Monday nights gig. He called up Westside Distribution on Tuesday morning and had a replacement arrive the following day at the venue we were playing at. I realise I'm not a famous guitarist, and certainly don't deserve priority, but I use the pod 6 times a week in a professional capacity. I have over 250 gigs this year and use it at least twice a week for recording sessions for various clients and companies. I'm really happy with the tones I can get from a POD, I just wish the customer service could be a little better. Rant over Cheers Paul

    Midi Clock Sync?

    I was just wondering if was possible to Sync my POD HD 500x's tap tempo speed with my DAW's (ableton) midi clock, when it is plugged into my computer.

    Before Buying Coupld Of Questions Hd

    HI there I own an X3 Live. -Can the X3 patches/sounds/ I have made on my X3 be imported into the HD? -Does it have bass cabs and amps? -Does the looper allow for tap tempo? -Can looper do 2 loops in separate channels on the HD like the boos loopers or would can only overdub multiple loops on same channel? Thanks Seb
