Like to aks, before submitting this idea: 

is there any way to lock a value in HX Edit?

 

It seems that I accidentally change values, using the mousewheel from time to time, so at some point of my tone journey I would like to fix selected presets, snapshots or (better) selected values to avoid unwanted changes.

 

Strange: Both times it seems I had changed values by accident on the mix-value of a reverb block, so my tone was some kind of quite and very spheric.

Hi,

 

Not sure if this is of any use, as it isn’t quite the feature you’re asking for, but it is possible to create your own default setting for any of the bocks. 
 

From the HX Edit Pilot’s Guide - page 34.

 

Configuring a Model’s User Defaults
If you find yourself constantly re-tweaking your commonly-used models, you can save any model’s settings as its new defaults (excluding Input, Output, Split, or Merge Mixer blocks), so the model shows up that way every time you add it to a preset.

  1. Choose any model and tweak it exactly how you like it—including any of its parameters and bypass state (existing bypass, MIDI, snapshot, and controller assignments are not stored with the User Defaults).
  2. With the model’s block selected within the Signal Flow, right-click on the block and choose User Default.

All your current parameter settings are now saved as the default for future uses of the model. (Existing presets that already include the model are not affected.)

 

Hope this helps/makes sense.

Makes sense but doesn't help ;)

Problem is the accidentally touched mousewheel, when navigating or even editing  a wrong row.

 

This could and should be prevented by an additional editor option like

"Change values by mouse only when alt key is additionally pressed".

 

This is an option I would definitely activate at some points of my tone building process. Give me a like if you would support such an idea and I will pack it onto ideascale.

F*** auto corrections :)) > additional editor option 


No one need ever know that your predictive text had messed with your posts.

 

If you ever need to edit a spelling error, or anything else in your post, you can click on the 3 small grey dots above your post and select “Edit” from the drop down menu.

 

Hope this helps/makes sense.

;-)

Please vote this up if intrested
 

The 3.5 feature Disable Snapshot Control over Parameter Assignments doesn't work when the parameter assigned to a foot swtich is an ext amp command.

At the moment is not possibile to use a foot switch for (physical) amp channel control and snapshots because when you change snapshot the helix will trigger the ext amp relay inverting the footswitch state (and any other assignment eventually made to that switch).

I suggest adding a Snapshot Control on/off option like it happens for any block parameter.

Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but I'd like L6 to possibly add a feature in the HELIX world where Amp/Effect Parameters are automatically enabled for SNAPSHOTs so that things such as the DRIVE values in an Amp can be controlled via SNAPSHOTs for something like a CLEAN and DIRTY setting for each SNAPSHOT.  I know the feature is already there, but I'd like the option to have it enabled by default for all items in a Signal Chain.  I guess it's be a setting where for some users who'd never use it, it would be off but for others it would be on.  it would save a ton of time in creating patches without having to touch each parameter and enable it.

I just noticed that in Helix Native software there are input and output level indicators. Would it be possible to add this to HX Edit? Its difficult to tell using headphones how loud an amp will be in real life going direct to a sound system but with the indicator you can see where your at and how much headroom you would have. 

Thanks

Hey Line 6 Team, would you consider the following suggestions:

 

A way to use command center to toggle between two midi program changes on a single footswitch on the HX stomp

 

Having the footswitch light always illuminated when cycling between snapshots on a single switch on the HX stomp (helps with viewing snapshot changes on bright stages)

 

Adding the flux feature to all HX products

 

A smart harmonizer that intelligently harmonizes vocals to the guitar input (like TC Helicon)

 

Thanks!

if you really want these things, you want to put them on idea scale. They don't monitor this space for these ideas.

One more wish - please either make it so that updates don't reset all the global routing parameters (digital vs xlr inputs, etc...) or at least make these (all) parameters editable from within HX Edit (and included in backups).

 

This drives me bonkers.

Hi,

 

When you perform an update to the Firmware, you are required to perform a Factory Reset. It is the “Reset” that returns all your Global settings back to the default settings. This is why you’re instructed to make backup of all the stuff in your hardware unit prior to the update.

 

Following a successful update of the firmware it is also suggested that you perform a “Restore from Backup” using HX Edit. When using this, you have the option to restore all your “Global Settings” to return them to how they were before. It’s very quick and very simple, but necessary as the new Firmware resets everything to how it was straight out of the box. See page 84.

Furthermore, regarding your earlier post. There are no Line 6 staff here and only very occasionally do they visit these forums - (See the “sticky comment” in the black banner stripe at the top of this page entitled “Welcome to the Line 6 forums”).

 

This link is where you need to go to have any hope of your suggestion been seen by anyone from Line 6:

 

https://line6.ideascale.com/a/index

 

Before posting any new ideas, please do a search to see if it's already been listed. Multiple requests for the same thing will thin out the votes. Also, post your ideas one at a time. Many users don’t vote for combined suggestions.

Then you should use the “sticky thread” in this forum to let other users know what your suggestions are, with links to IdeaScale, so they can vote on it if they wish.

 
Hope this helps/makes sense.
