edken Posted January 9, 2016 Share Posted January 9, 2016 I get a very similar problem on Windows 7 - lots of crackles and pops while playing and recording - it makes the Helix pretty much unusable as an audio card, I only use it when I want to record my variax so I can get the mags and the emulated dry sound. Now I've noticed that it works fine right after a reboot, but if you leave the computer and switch off (did not unplug first) the Helix then turn it back on (while the computer is running) that's when it happens. The only workaround (if you can call it that) is to reboot - and *then* it works fine. I rarely reboot my computer, next time I do I'll run more tests (like try to switch to another audio device before turning off the Helix) and report what I find. It must open a ticket on the Line 6 website. Many of us have the same problem on Mac or Windows. The more we are to report this problem, faster, Line 6, will be less indiffÃ©rend the problem of usb on the helix. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
