Question: helix editor on 2nd laptop

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have installed the helix editor on my PC and firmware 2.01 on the helix using the install notes provided by line 6 on this forum. Now I want to install the editor on my laptop as well. Do I have to take all the steps again (including backing up the presets, resetting the helix) or can I just install the editor?

 

thanks for your reply

Tomas

Hi Tomas,

 

I would think you can just install a copy of the editor on your laptop without any problem. The Line 6 Updater is responsible for Firmware installation, that's when you usually need to do a "Reset" on Helix. The "updater" application also installs the USB driver and the "Editor" software. The editor is simply a tool for communicating with and modifying the settings inside your Helix hardware. So, you could do that from any computer with a suitable USB port, driver and editor installed.

 

Note: It maybe a good idea to also make another copy of your presets on the laptop. Think of it as a "Fail Safe" backup.

If you just want the editor program on a second computer you don't need to install the Line 6 Updater. You just need to download the Helix software installer (not the firmware file) then run the installer and select the driver and the editor for installation.
