30D Bae B Metal* ?

Hi Everyone,

I apologise if this is easily discovered, but I looked through the 2.0 manual and did do a quick search and can find info on "Saving" but I can't find info on "getting rid of the * or E on display.

 

- I installed the 2.0 firmware on my Helix Rack (Windows 10 host)

- I pressed buttons 5 & 6 while turning on the power and cause presets to get built.

- When the helix finally boots there are certain presets that by default have the "E" and if I switch away and come back the "E" stays persistent, but any changes do get reverted.

- Also I went to listen to 30D Bae B Metal and there is no sound, did figure out that the default input is Guitar and not Multi like the other presets. I only have Variax hooked up so then no sound. 

 

 

My questions are:

 

1) How do I get rid of the * or E ?

2) Did I not install the firmware correctly? Or is it that 30D really needs the input switched if one is not using the Guitar input?

 

Thanks!

Tony

it's an indicator that at least one parameter in that patch has changed. i don't think you can disable it.

 

since you are using a Variax, any guitar knob changes will also show the indicator.

Not trying to disable it and I understand that making changes should make it present. But if you switch away without saving and then switch back it *should* be gone.

 

it *never* goes away on certain presets with 30D being one of them. Even without a guitar hooked up or the editor connected.

The E is permanent and I would like to know if the firmware is not installed correctly or there is some other way to reset besides pressing 5 and 6 on start.

set the input to variax or multi

As I stated in my question all other factory presets are set to multi, this one is *not* ... is it because it is an error in the firmware or because I installed or didn't rebuild the presets correctly ...  I know how to get it to work, I am wondering why it isn't set correctly to begin with.

The E indicator can be triggered by a perceived pedal movement. I have often noticed that my pedal value/setting can fluctuate at the heel position, moving in a very narrow range from 1% to 3% even when I am not touching the pedal. This phantom movement happens immediately as a preset is recalled/activated and is enough to trigger the indicator that the preset has been changed.
