Recommended Posts

So frustrated about it. Every time i switch patches there is a loud annoying squeal and followed by the error it will stop working. Updated software. I reset it 3 times and still the same error. Need help!!!

Re Loud Chirp during patch to patch changes - We all suffer this  -

 

If you disable the Delay FX and palm mute all strings just prior to the instant you change Firehawk FX  patches - it minimizes the loud chirp burst that can occur at each patch change.

 

read more details here:

My typical worst case Firehawk FX Patch change noise occurs under these conditions 
 
1 ) Select the factory preset "03C Move Like Jagger"
 
2) Strum a chord and let ring, and while the chord is still ringing, select factory preset "03D Tighten Up"
 
3) I always get a very loud high volume burst of noise duration 80 milliseconds  - totally unacceptable for professional gear.
 
 
Same  very loud burst of noise during patch change also occurs frequently on other presets too
 
like changing from "04C Day Tripper" to "04D 4 What Its Worth"

From what I can gather, all firehawk owners suffer unacceptable 'delay artifacts' and 'lag' between patches.  Apparently there is an eagerly awaited firmaware update due to be released that addresses this issue... see here - http://line6.com/support/topic/13511-time-between-preset-swtiching-unbearable/

 

I don't get an error where the unit stops working, please elaborate?

I had a look at the video, you could try replacing that tone by powering up the firehawk and save a different tone in that slot using the app, if that stops it freezing then it looks like a corrupt patch

Hello rex3live,

 

Please take a look at http://line6.com/support/page/kb/_/effects-controllers/firehawk/recovery-from-corrupt-tones-a-and-d-lights-lo-r750

 

 

What mcbeddal described above was the method that I used to resurrect from the death, but it does not solve the issue. I guess you used a patch created on the previous version of firmware as Line 6 explained.

That's too bad.....i had no issues with line 6 before except this one and too bad I sold my HD500. Hope they will fix this asap.
