I have three wishes for now. In order of importance for me.

1. I'd REALLY REALLY wish for the Cosmos Echo to be able to go down to 0 MS instead of 150 so it would be possible to use it as modulation. That would be so cool. I've been looking for a pedal that can do that thing well, but it's pretty much only the Generation Loss that I find that I think does it well enough on demos I've seen, but the Cosmos Echo does it great too, the way I want it too, but I cannot use it without latency, which sucks. It has to be pretty simple to change that, right?

2. Maestro Brassmaster fuzz! My old UX2 with GearBox has the "Bronzemaster", which is really cool! I wish they added that one, or a new version of it to Helix! I still plug in my UX2 just to get that effect on recordings sometimes.

3. Sunn Model T amp model (Both Original and Reissue)


You do realise that posting this here is not enough - you actually have to post your ideas/request onto the IdeaScale site to be voted on.

Find it here:

 

https://line6.ideascale.com

 

Ensure that nobody else has made the same request, and if they have you can vote it up.

 

You mention 3 items - therefore you need to make each one a separate post, because more people will vote for single things rather than a multi request.

 

Then you can post here to let other users know what you have asked for, and they can vote for it if they like the idea.

 

Hope this helps/makes sense.

Yeah, or kind of, I thought it's better than nothing. My IdeaScale account hasn't been accepted and I got impatient..

But thanks!

It's simple: 5 snapshots with the HX Stomp.

 

We all can have access to up to 5 footswitches with it, and now that we also have the Command Center on the HX Stomp,  it just seems so wrong that we're still limited to 3 snapshots.

 

Also, it seems that this issue is not due to a processor limitation, since it has a slightly better chip (and with a slightly higher clock) than the Pod Go, which already offers 4 snapshots.

 

I think Line6 is gradually running out of excuses for this artificial limitation they've put on the HX Stomp.

For amp that features like master volume are 'added' ie not in the original, please differentiate that control by something as simple as the colour of the bar.

I am suggesting that this can just be done in HX edit, not on the individual device firmware itself, to make it easier to be implemented.

Ok, this is my whish list for the next Helix Floor:

1)  I believe that one of the strengths of the Helix Floor is the fact that it has an excellent number of Sends / Returns, this makes it unique in the world among the currently existing pedalboards. So this is my Wish/request: add a total of 6 Mono Return Jacks on the rear panel, so we can use up to 3 Stereo Fx pedals within Helix

2 ) Add Studio HD Reverb types and not yet other low to medium quality guitar pedal reverb types : It would be great to have the famous Yamaha reverb rack units, as well as reverb models of the Lexicon or Eventide rack units

This is the delay I hope finds its way to the Helix, please vote up.

 Lexicon PCM 42 Delay

https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Please-add-Lexicon-PCM-42-Delay/946651-23508

 

Lexicon PCM 42 ~ so amazing! Sells used for $800-$1200 if you can find one.  Couldn't find a great video to really show how good the sound quality is, so organic and flexible for digital.

Dont know if does already exist in ideascale, but I really wish they make the rotary pots more dynamic. I mean, it does takes from 40 seconds to an entire MINUTE, spinning that rotary, to assign the max values to some block params (like for example the new poly sustain, or longest delay times). They could just use an EXPonential function that does auto engage if you dont stop spinning the value within X seconds.

 

EDIT; would be also great to have a 100% Wet option on the Poly Sustain block, to play soft in/out drone pads, like I can do with my Gamechanger Plus Pedal.

Block Linking

 

Suggestion to add ability to link blocks in different presets. This means that all parameters in linked blocks are fully connected, so if I change settings in one preset for amp block, it will be changed in preset with linked amp block.
For example, I use two presets with 8 snapshots each (more like 16 snapshots for my usage), and both presets have the same amp and cab, and delay pedal. Presets differ in other elements - additional effects, modulations, pitch shifters, but they share amp, cab and delay. So I could link them, and after changing amp gain in one preset I don't have to do it in other preset.

 

That's like the global blocks, but doable and flexible version

Selecting Preset's Snapshot

 

Suggestion for selecting preset's snapshot. When you want to use different presets with their own snapshots, but you can only switch to last saved snapshot in this preset with ONE pedal switch.
So instead of having links to different presets in your preset, you can have links to different snapshots in different presets.

 

For example, I have my MAIN preset with regular snapshots, and sometimes I need some more exotic stuff like acoustic sims or pitch-shifting, but I can't contain them in my MAIN preset. So I create ADDITION preset with some of my MAIN snapshots, but mostly with exotic stuff snapshots. And I want to switch from my MAIN preset's clean snapshot to my ADDITION preset's acoustic snapshot, OR i want to switch to ADDITION preset's pitch-shifting preset. Now in Helix I simply cannot do it, when selecting different presets I always automatically switch to last saved snapshot in this preset, not the snapshot I want in this particular moment - and needed snapshot is different from time to time.

 

This change will save us in LIVE situations, when switching between presets (and help knowing which snapshot will exactly be loaded)

JHS Colour Box

 

Doing home studio recording, I'd be interested in some sort of console emulation that could potentially give my Helix routing a more "analog" sound.

 

The JHS Colour Box is a pedal that supposedly emulates a Neve console. I doubt it would be too much of a challenge for Line 6.

I'd like to have multiple 10 stomp pages accessible within a preset using FS6 or FS12 unleashing the full potential of the command center.

I think 2 pages (20 foot switches) would be enough in most cases and would be really easy to navigate between them using a single FS, for example using FS6 (losing pedal edit mode and moving "mode" access to press & hold) for cycling through page 1 and 2 would be a nice and fast solution.

20 footswitches and the new command center that let us build our layout mixing stomps, snapshots, presets, looper & hot keys , will turn the Helix Floor in an unstoppable gigging machine.

I'd also add the "turn page" to the command center, just in case.

Hello Helix Gurus.

 

I need to be able to move the 1/2speed button away from the Play/Stop buttons in the Looper.

When on stage, if I don't hit the Play button exactly right, I often find I also hit the 1/2speed button with my foot, along with the Play/Stop button next to it.

I need to get it out of the way.

 

Is there any way to edit the layout for the Looper section and if not, can this please be added to features?

 

Thanks everyone, and happy new year :-)

I posted an IdeaScale entry and I'll also mention it here: It would be great of the Helix would control more than 2 DT25 amps. It will send audio to four of them and divide stereo among them but it will only control the first 2 via L6 using the DT25 output block. It really should be able to send the commands to any connected DT25s, at least up to four which has always been what the DT series advertised. At a minimum the interface could have an "All" setting, i.e. DT1, DT2, DT1+2, DT All.

 

It would also be great if stereo L/R channels could be assigned to each DT unit.

I know it's in the initial list on this thread, but I'm just here to weigh in my interest for multiple loopers - at least one more, but more multi track loopers with one shot playback and speed/reverse would be sweet. You can bet Dave knudson would get involved, too!

I'd like to see a one click "delete preset" option in HX Edit. In windows, i'd put it in the right click menu, towards the bottom of the menu list. Have it revert back to a blank "New Preset". I sample a lot of user's presets and need an easier way to delete the ones I don't like instead of having to copy, save, and paste "New Preset".
