Just used Helix editor for first time!

Recommended Posts

I just used the Editor for the first time after having my Helix about 2 weeks.  Looks good - it was especially nice to have a the graphic representation of the global EQ.

 

I wanted to back up my setlist having done a successful gig with Helix and 35 unique presets for the songs on Friday night - as I've heard a rumour that a firmware update is on the way soon.....

 

It was an absolute doodle to backup the set list, and I love the way it's so easy to re-order the set by just dragging and dropping.   I could probably just do that for each gig rather than typing up and printing a set list on paper. 

 

Not sure if I'll use the editor for creating presets as it's already very nice to do on Helix itself, but who knows.  I am looking forward to the ability to type in the Preset name rather than using the joystick that's for sure!  :)

 

Nice work Line6!

I've used it a couple of times and it is nice.  So far, I prefer editing on the unit but I'll take a closer look when the additional functionality is added.

You can type in the Preset name now over on the left side of the editor. It is the scribble strips for block names you can't rename in the editor yet.

Fab - and scribble strips will be even better :)

When I change a preset name on the editor the scribble strip title also updates

Yep, I see what you mean, my comment requires clarification, the main screen preset name and the scribble strip for the preset title can be updated from the editor.  However, if you select, for instance, a different amp or effect in the editor, the scribble strip name will follow the default Helix name for the block, but the scribble strips above the footswitches and expression pedal for blocks (amps, pedals, etc) cannot yet be custom named from the editor although they can be custom named directly from the Helix UI.
