Suggestion: Browser-Based Tools vs Native Applications
JScotty317 posted a topic in Line 6 LoungeHello All, Proud owner of way too many line 6 products. Specifically with my Variax, I am noticing some compatibility issues with certain softwares that prompted me to ensure I had both a Windows and Mac computer. I can't recall how long ago Monkey and Updater stopped being supported on Mac OS but it prompted me to go get a windows desktop (amongst other justifications for needing it). However, even the windows softwares didn't seem to allow me to do a factory reset on the Varian (a Shrunken, which has some eccentric tunings I wanted to try out). I tried referring to the manual for the tunings but seeing "BEEEEE" tuning doesn't help me know which octave each string is set to. Might just be me and this particular scenario but Stevics tunings sometime need to note which dang octave LoL. Sorry, tangent. I still think that some of these tools either need to be supported fully until there is a working replacement or compatibility needs to be addressed somehow, hence my browser suggestion. I'll just leave this note here for now. Curious if anyone else has similar experiences and very mild frustrations. Cheers, JScotty
Native and Mixcraft Workaround for me
Doug6String posted a topic in Helix NativeI run Mixcraft 8 Pro on a PC (Win 10) and have the known issue that when switching presets a few times, Mixcraft crashes. I found that if I have the first setlist that opens in Native be the one I want to work in, AND if I have Native "off" when changing to a diff preset in that setlist, I can't crash it - I tried! Once I change to a diff setlist, it crashes after a very small number of times switching presets even with Native not active. I was skeptical of this, so I've tried it a couple days in a row, and it's consistent for me.
Saving up resources in patches
aerosol_d7 posted a topic in POD HDHello, Since many of us use dirty and clean sound mostly. I tried to create a patch with dual amps (eg treadplate and blackface) and dual volume controls to switch btw dirty/clean. As if I had only a stompbox to activate dirty. Trying to keep it simple. However it gets too much DSP if I want to add noise gate, reverb, chorus, pitch etc. (pod hd 500) Now, I need some ideas to solve DSP limitation. My first idea is to keep treadplate and remove blackface and try to tweak "noamp" signal with EQs etc to be as close as possible to the blackface removed. (sure it wont be the same) However it doesnt seem easy to tweak with only EQ block, so I got 3 or 4. Therefore, no big change here. apart from using external stuff (reverb of an amp or EQs pedals). have you guys done something like this? any new idea to help me? or should try another approach? or maybe theres a document somewhere that says x can be replaced by y; xyz replaced by w suggestions will be appreciated.
