I just don't want anymore hardware. I'm mentioning this cause it would be an easy fix for L6. I like the tuner. I just wanna have more "turn on" options.

As I mentioned above. Isn't it pretty obvious to have some kind of live mode for the display? I mean, who looks at the signal chain while playing? You can use the display for better things in a live situation.

 

Having a way to turn the tuner on instantly is at least technically feasible. Whether or not it will ever happen, I don't know. As far as having the tuner be constantly active, I don't think that's a possibility because the tuner itself uses some amount of DSP. So it could potentially break some existing presets by pushing them over the DSP limit.

Someone suggested putting a tuner in the editor...

 

I don’t think that will ever catch on - shame. ;-)

Good idea! I mean this product is so versatile but they could definitely work on the flexibility of the tuner.

Everything in this recording goes through the Helix. It's an excellent product.

Tuner in the editor? When EVERY TIME you use the editor you have the actual unit RIGHT THERE?!?!?!

 

No.

It's not important for me but on the other hand why not? He definitely got a point.

 

By the way. Thanks for your input on different subjects. I've been reading your comments and it's been super helpful.

I had some ideas about tuner availability. What do you think? I'll paste it below.

 

"Hey!

 

I'm so grateful for the Helix. Makes my life so much easier. Been playing for 20 years and it's just a blessing.

 

I have one wish for the Helix and it's regarding the tuner in a live situation. I'll try to put words on what I mean here:

I would like to access the tuner instantly. I've been thinking about this and from my perspective I see three possible ways.

  • Add a choice to make the tap/tuner button engage the tuner when I push it once. Yes, I loose the tap function.
  • Add the tuner as a possible block that I can put in the signal chain wherever I want.
  • Add a "live-mode" where the tuner and the name of the preset is visible at all times.

When I had my old pedal bord I used a switcher and one button sent my signal to the tuner, that of course was on at all times.

I also used that as a "mute effect" making me absolutely quiet instantly.

 

You guys are geniuses so I know you'll figure something out. If this would be added I would be so happy!"

It's not a life changer for me, but I have to say after hearing Spikey mention it 3 million times, dismissing it the first 1 million, but then thinking about it over time . . . I kind of agree.

 

I'm a Stomp user, so maybe it has to do with the fact that I'm often in snapshots mode and the tuner isn't as easy to bring up, but I think part of it is also that once you start working on one screen you largely want to stay there. Having HX Edit include ALL of what you'd like to see is just easier and nicer.

 

It's a first world problem, yeah . . . it might not even qualify as a first world problem, but it would be a nice feature.
