Cool. I added "Spillover" to the title so people will know to vote for it. Hope you don't mind.  :)

Thank you, DI.  You have no idea how refreshing it is to float a (relatively outside) idea like that and have a product manager say "cool idea", rather than "huh?" or "no way."  Even if the idea never gets implemented, there's tremendous value in this.

Added, recent links that were posted here.

 

although i read pretty much every forum post... if the link doesn't get posted here, i'm going to assume that it's already listed....

I'm interested in the rack version for studio work and would love to see some sort of AAX/VST plug-in that would allow you to save and recall your settings for the track.  This way I could come back to a session and get the same exact sound for the track.

how about a dual pitch shifter.... I loved the one one my ART SGX 2000 express it had so many things you could do with 2 pitch shifters and the dry part.

You can already do that with Helix.

Would love to see a rendition of the Harmonic Octave Generator (Electro-harmonix). Addresses several other people's wishlist, including envelope filtering and indefinite sustain. So much to do with this one.

what about "tone match"???

I would seriously welcome some form of this. 

 

I completely understand this may not happen at launch, but this is great for a post-launch update.

This could come in the form of some sort of multiplatform app (or an extension for the editor), because most of what's necessary is already in the Helix, but, as I imagine it, it's a huge amount of work.

For example, an app that, given an audio sample (and that's way too broad), could analyze the kind of amp, cab, effects, guitar, picking technique, material of the pick, etc... That seems to me the kind of task that needs sheer computing power, awesome design and a truckload of code... if possible at all.

Years ago, I used Steinberg's Free Filter to achieve wonderful results in general eq curve matching, but the character had to be there to start with.

the other part of any delay in any sort of tone match offerings... is that currently there are no tones to match to....

after helix is out a while and a custom tone library builds up... it might make more sense....

just a little friendly debate on it though... not that i know anything about the prospect one way or the other.

Just a reminder everyone...

 

If you can, submit every model, feature, tweak, or other suggestion as a separate IdeaScale submission. Otherwise, there's no way for us to know which item everyone's voting up (or down).

 

For example, if you list fifteen high-gain amps in a big list and everyone votes it up, which amps are we to tackle first?

 

Cheers!

Okay, so that means no one gets any high gain amps at all until all fifteen are finished (plus other amps from other submissions), even if it takes years? ;)

Sorry if I'm missing something. If there were ever a Helix plugin, why would reamping be necessary at all? All the processing would be right in the DAW, and you could just perform a bounce-in-place, which is often faster than real time.

I think it's just a confusing wording....

i don't think he means re amp via helix...

i think he means reamp the recording... like pod farm plugin....

 

i'm sure he'll confirm as much...

:)

I added it, labeled it as Helix plugin (computer re-amping)

since i believe that's your intent...

let me know if that's not what you had in mind.

Seems like the same request.

 

 
 
 
I'm guessing there is some overlap of votes (we can only see the last 20 names), but the true total is likely more than 76. 
 
Anyone know the real number?

I don't know if this is an appropriate place to put this but I would love to see a USB 3.0 or better on the Helix.

Helix is USB 2.0. USB 3.0 audio interfaces are actually rather few and far between. There aren't many 3.0 audio controller chips out there from what I understand.

Plus, there's no point in having USB3 on a 8x8 audio interface like Helix. It's way overkill.

Exactly, USB2.0 is more than sufficient for 16x16 interfaces...

In this spirit, I've just added a Helix-specific Mesa/Boogie MkIIc+ request.  Done right, this is about the only high-gain amp I'll ever need.  Please vote if you consider it essential.

 

http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Mesa-Boogie-Mark-IIc+/772605-23508

 

Every time I try to add tags to this request, I get a "tag includes forbidden characters" error.  So this is probably about the only way you'll find it.  :/

I think the Mark V would be a better choice given that it encompasses the entire history of the Mark series, including the II C+.

I would agree with you if any given amp model in the Helix included switching for all modes and voices of the real amp in question, but this is not generally the case.  If they did a high-gain Mk V, I'd personally want it in the MkIIc+ voicing (vs. Mk IV or insane), and then we're just talking semantics.

 

For what it's worth, I got to sit down with a MkV:25 a couple of weeks ago.  Took about 10 minutes before I found my old groove in the MkIIc+ mode, and determined that if I were to buy one, it would probably never leave that mode (except for clean tones.)  :)  Never should have sold my MkIIc+ all those years ago.  :(

That's what I meant when I said that the entire history of the Mark amps is encompassed in the Mark V, so Line 6 would need to model ALL of its voicings in order to do that. For sure!
