Digital_Igloo Posted October 2, 2015 Share Posted October 2, 2015 Helix Firmware v1.01.2 Release Notes Helix v1.01.2 is a free firmware update that includes fixes and optimizations. It is highly recommended that all Helix users perform this update.It is also recommended that you back up your current presets by using the Helix application to create a preset bundle, allowing you to install new presets as part of the update process.The easiest way to perform the update process is by installing the latest version of Line 6 Updater. Once you've connected Helix to your computer via USB port (hubs are not supported), Line 6 Updater will recognize the unit and take you through the update process. The Line 6 Updater application may be downloaded here: http://line6.com/software/Bug Fixes In certain situations, while in Pedal Edit mode only, effects parameters may fail to appear on the scribble strips if an Amp+Cab block was previously selected. This only happens when navigating to an effects blockâ€™s parameters after viewing the third page of Amp+Cab parameters. â€”FIXED Other minor bug fixes and optimizations Other Improvements Minor improvements made to the factory preset bundle Loading the Newest Factory Presets (Optional)IMPORTANT! Loading the factory presets will completely overwrite all existing presets and setlists! Back up your presets before proceeding! Turn off Helix. While holding footswitches 7 and 8 (two left-most switches on the bottom row), turn on Helix. Wait for the message â€œWill restore stock Presets and Setlists...â€ to appear and let go. Known Issues While a loop is playing, changing from a preset with the Looper block on Path 1 to one with the Looper block on Path 2 may cause a small portion of the recorded loop to play If the Helix application is open, FS6 (EXIT LOOPER) may fail to work after changing presets while in Looper footswitch mode Minor pops and clicks may be present when Helix is streaming audio from a MacÂ® running OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) Minor pops and clicks may be present when Helix is streaming audio from an iOSÂ® device with AppleÂ® Camera Kit On rare occasions while booting, noisy graphics artifacts may appear on the main display The underscore character (â€œ_â€) should not be used in Preset names or IR names. Redwirez IR names commonly contain underscore characters; in the meantime, rename these IRs until a fix is available Streaming audio over USB while the Helix application is open may cause it to disconnect In rare cases, pressing the Variax/Mags knob on a Variax (connected via VDI) while the Helix application is open may cause Helix to freeze When using the stereo version of the Looper (almost all factory presets use a mono looper), pressing Undo may remove only the left channel While in Pedal Edit mode, the expression pedal may only select values 0 and above for Pitch parameters; in the meantime, pressing FS10 can manually select negative values The firmware version number will incorrectly appear as 1.01.02 in the Line 6 Updater and Helix applications 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
