It's like "Groundhog Day" in here...

 

Congratulations on becoming the 4,389,883rd forum-ite to start a "when are we getting new firmware?" thread. I bet this one turns out to be TOTALLY different from all the others...

I don't want to be the bad guy giving the unpleaseant news around here... But I've been checking TGP Helix Forum and it seems that the Beta Testers believe nothing will be released until December... Bummer.

With "awesome" fx like stereo width, the least of my worries is when the new firmware is coming out. I dont think id go around tooting my horn about that one.I dont even know if id call that an effect. Id probably just call it a gift or a bonus or something.

We'll get the new update as soon as you nail the Andy Summers tone with what you have now.  :ph34r:

Which is why DI said this block wasn't a new effect, but rather just a "utility block"...

It would be nice if, instead of having to look for them on any other forum those kinds of announcements or hints were posted on L6's own forum.

Sounds coherent, right?

We get purple or whatever that yucky greenish color is that mixes blue and yellow.

 

I'll wait.

This isn't your helix, this is a forum. Plus, I don't think your Helix would understand if you spoke to it anyway. Furthermore I don't think Helix knows when its update is coming out either.

I have it from a solid source that the new Firmware update will contain the one feature that will turn you into the "Guitar God" you've always wanted to be...so it's probably worth waiting for...  ;)

These threads never disappoint...there's nothing more invigorating on a bright clear morning than (yet another) rousing performance of Whiny McMozart's "Firmware's Lament in C minor". ;)

It IS taking a rather long time. 

 

You know what is taking an EVEN LONGER time? Any substantial new content updates from pretty much every other modeling company in the biz! Fractal hasn't added a new amp to the Axe-FX/AX8 since around the same time2.20 dropped. And they don't have a 7 amp, 7 FX update pending, either. All Cliff has teased for their next update is a new memory Man pedal model and Darkglass B7K model - both of which we already have in Helix.

 

I believe Kemper's last big update - delays - was around this time last year.

 

Ask Amplifire users when was the last time they got firmware with new content. Headrush has had, what, one amp model added since they launched in the summer? 

 

Boss? Digitech? Zoom? ISP Theta? You can practically hear those names echoing because there's nothing but tumbleweed and crickets in terms of afterrelease content being added to their flagship products.

 

Meanwhile, Line 6 has a load of goodness ready to roll as soon as the *&^!%!*%$##@!&ing new editor decides to behave and makes it out of testing. 

 

We're getting the best of it....trust me.

December?!?!?!? Argghghgh, Rabble, Rabble, Rabble.  :D

 

On  a serious note - 

Sure I have a few specific requests, but honestly I am just really happy that we have an update in the pipeline with 7 amps, 7FX coming.  I am  even more happy that it doesn't look like it will be the last one either!

 

Question: I assume that the updates will be universal for the Helix platform. Meaning Native, will get the same updates (at the same time) as Rack, Floor, and LT do? Or are we still not quite to update parity?

Stop ruining our pity-party with logic! My free stuff should have been here by now...;)

That's what kills me about these discussions...nobody knows, except the select few who ain't talking. It's never been any different, and it'll never change. Yet I suspect the same question will continue to be asked until the end of time. Baffling...may as well be asking for nude photos of Ernest Borgnine...;)

Well I don't want them either...;)

 

But I maintain that they'd probably be easier to get than the relentless request for "inside info" that has never been, and shall not be forthcoming...

I actually like these threads.  Get us all excited about what's to come and eventually someone from Line 6 pipes in on one of these with a teaser.

 

December is not that far away and would be awesome!

Well, it looks like there is no update coming soon... :( Maybe NAMM 2018?

Or will HELIX be sunset?

Why on earth would Line 6 sunset it? It's still selling like hotcakes... There will be an update and it's going to be well before NAMM...

Eh, I can wait. Mikah912 has a point. Other companies are not popping out upates with this much content. Im just hoping for Diezel, and EVH

Ok well what i heard was that he said it was the least interesting of the 7 fx, so this is a little bit contradictory to the way youre putting it.

I am hoping the "utility block" is a single block that sounds like Andy Summers.
