I would really love to see some Randall amps.  Some classic solid states.  MORE GAIN!!!! HOHOHOHOOOOO!!!!

I went to post this and found someone already had.  Adding it here for more visibility:

https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/HX-Stomp-FS3-wasted-in-Scroll-Mode-make-it-always-Tuner-Tap/950706-23508

 

If you set FS3 to be a 3rd stomp switch, this affects both scroll mode and preset mode.  Having one of your three stomps duplicated in scroll mode makes no sense, and you lose tap/tuner access.  I use external FS4 to switch modes, so I can access stomps, presets, and snapshots without leaning over.  The one thing I can't get to is tap/tuner.

Polyphonic pitch shifting please. The Helix is great (and better!) for single note melodies but all the pitch models “glitch” if you play the root plus a third. Roots plus a forth, fifth or octave are fine but advanced chords? Ewww...

The feature I would like to see is «converting» of Amp+Cab/Amp/Preamp blocks

 

I use the Helix with two DT50 but also direct out or with headphones for practice at home at night. I dial my tones mostly connected to the DT50, where I use preamp-blocks. When I'm satisfied with a preset, I make a copy for direct out/headphones. There I have to replace the preamp-block with an Amp or an Amp+Cab block. Switching the block resets all settings to default. That means, I have to manually write down the settings, change block and apply them again.

 

I like so see the possibility to either

a) change the block type between Amp/Preamp with all settings kept, or

b) copy only the amp-settings and apply them to preamp-block and vice versa

I would like to see user presets of pedals when you open effect lists. Having a section called user with your most common pedals with your configurations. Loading from a separate preset is a pain sometimes.

Can't seem to log in to ideal scale today.

here is an idea

When switching to different Cabs to audition them it always resets to the default setting for the cab I think.   It would be awesome if there was an option to retain the chosen Mic/ distance and whatever paramters you chose and simply audition new cabs with your favorite mic and settings.  

I seem to recall having to change it everytime and adjust which slows workflow. 

maybe the option already exsist and i don't know it yet. 

 

Thoughts?

1. does there exist a 5stomp/5snapshots submission ?

 

2. also, would be nice to have tap tempo button persistently display tempo value, just like exp pedal, so handy

Just added this to the Ideascale....

 

https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Master-Setting-for-effects-allowing-you-to-edit-multiple-presets/960070-23508

 

 

Long story short.... I think it would be a cool feature to be able to group effects so that if you edit one you edit all across the presets.... so if you dial in a reverb to suit the room in preset 1A and you have preset 1A grouped with 5C, 18D and 23A , it will adjust all the reverbs in those presets automatically. 

 

Not being able to do something like this is why I still keep my analog drive pedals around since I find I have to tweak those the most from venue to venue when I gig.

I was wondering if they might add a 'notes' section to each patch - something that would open in HX edit.  Maybe add a 2nd line or sub line under the title?  I like to build setlist for different songs and modify other patches - it would be nice to be able to track which original patch I used/modified when I rename it for particular songs...

I think one function that I used when I was a boss gt fan , you could limit your amount of patches  so if it was set at say 1-20 once you got to 20 it would start back at patch 1. Very handy if you need to switch quickly live.

I was thinking the same thing.  For a while I assigned fs4 for the tap/tuner and fs5 for  fs mode>

 

I now use fs 4 for preset up

and fs5 for fs mode.

 

i gave up having 3 blocks on 3 Footswitches and decided if I made all the block decisions ahead of time I could just use snapshots.

 

of course, using a Morningstar mc6 you could have everything... snapshots, footswitchable blocks, tap/tempo, etc.

Still another vote for 2 in one blocks:

 

reverb/delay

 

put boosts and amp channel switching into the same amp block.

I'd like a mode where the Helix Floor controls Helix Native and the two would sync. I use both all-hardware and all-software rigs, and it would be nice if I didn't have to keep the two in sync myself.

MXR Phase 100, please. The 90 was always the poor cousin of the 100, but the superior model seems to have been forgotten by history!

I had a Phase 100, and the Deluxe Phaser nails it.

Add a determined unmuted output for the tuner please. As a singer an guitarist using the helix I'm not able to talk to the crowd while tuning the guitar. Either the crowds hears the sound of both mic and guitar or nothing. I have to put a tuner in front of the guitar in.

Some more things I thought of to maximize the 6 block/3 snapper limit on the Stomp:

1) As stated earlier a single reverb/delay block would be great. Heck amps that have reverb... put the reverb into the block... like the real thing.

2) A clean boost on all amps built into each amp block. Not clean output boost... but say... the Ep booster or something that genuinely functions the way a boost does in front of an amp. It’s almost a staple on every pedalboard... so why not include it into the parameters of the amp?

3) amp in a box type pedal simulations.... catalinbread dls or Wampler Black 57 for example. 

I’m always wanting to Marshallize a Fender and Fenderize a Marshall. On my pedalboard, I would have a real fender voiced amp... but a Catalinbread DLS on the board when I wanted that Marshall 800 sound. The sounds were great and I didn’t have to carry a second amp.

I get that on the full helix the “change the amp” logic to solve gain issues work. On the stomp, you either run out of blocks or dsp or both when adding even just a single amp (no cab) block.

4) Mic position option. It’s one of the best eqs in the studio... just move the mic. The tilt eq thing works fine... but it takes a block.  

5) a second mic option on the same cab.  

Running an amp and a dual cab takes two blocks. Maybe two mics on one cab could be done in one block. The 121/57 combo option has a long history. It’s almost the gold standard of micing guitar cabinets in the studio. A ribbon does the lows, but it still lacks the bite. And vice versa.

In preset mode, hitting the same patch footswitch again will engage a solo preset volume boost. Hitting same button toggles boost on and off.
