any thing in helix you think sucks?

Recommended Posts

2 things for me.

- Delay time/subdivision not being a snapshot parameter (and of course I want trails :) )

- Flanger. I probably lack some skills tuning them correctly. I have a basic MXR micro flanger I like a lot, and I can't dial anything close to it.

Not that it sucks, but i'd like the ability to drag and drop downloaded .HLX preset files into the editor instead of having to import, steer to the folder, scroll up and down find the file and click open. That basic functionality was available in L6's SpiderEdit editor.

are You sure ? dragndrop works completely fine with Helix editor.

The Axe FX II editor (had this when I owned one) had a built in curve adjust setting (using virtual sliders) for the Expression pedals, for adjusting the beginning and end of the travel on the pedal. This allowed the user to use a straight line from beginning to end, or set a convex curve at the start and concave at the end of travel, and this could be adjusted as very minor or a lot, user choice.

They also had a user adjustment (in percentages) on when exactly the Wah would engage when rocked forwards from heel position. 

 

I WISH Line 6 would take a second and consider this to add to Helix.

That very closely resembles the velocity response curve in quite a few DAWs for things like midi keyboards.  Including my own in FLS.

This would be a very nice feature to have with the Helix at some point. :)

 

I know the Helix platform is still kinda new, but they are seriously building something great with it. Look at how far Helix has expanded since its launch. 

It has many amps/fx added since launch, and snapshots.

A new minimal form version at a lower price.

AND a dedicated plugin coming soon. 

 

In a few years I think the Helix will not only have a lot of the features that we want that the competition may have in some form, but I think also some new things as well. The ability to have all of it seamlessly share presets between all Helix versions is a great step towards that.

Yes indeed! I hate the response of the expression pedal.

The update procedure, I have got to the point where I won't even update unless there is a major version change, that to me shows there is something seriously wrong.

 

The pitch and synth stuff is pretty bad.

 

The tuner could use some improvement.

 

Undo would be good for when the joystick destroys your careful work.

Stock cabs for high gain metal.

 

 

I take it back. I'm dialing in some killer tones with them now.

Maybe I'm not quite getting you, but I change subdivisions using Snapshots all the time. My main patch switches between dotted eighth, quarter, and sixteenth note values.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh !!! IIn the controler assign section of the editor, all the parameters are in the same order as when editing a block... except the Note Sync parameter which is at the end of the list ! I just missed it and lost so much time duplicating delay blocks. Thanks so much !!!!!
