2.5 appreciations, can't wait for friedman's ch1

Recommended Posts

Thank you Line6 for the BE 100, my feelings to my Helix floor unit is right now true love, all the money (and efforts to earn it) now is paid... I can't wait to the channel 1. Futhermore, i had no hope in the Legacy effects, but once i saw it i understood it has few things in common with the stock effects of the Helix.

 

But i think it's a nice moment to say what i think it would be interesting to be in the next patch (futhermore the friedman's ch 1 hahaha):

 

I use Helix in ALL my musical moments, not only in live or in the rehearsal room, i also use it at home for practicing scales, arpegios... and i consider essential to improve the Looper time limit (i dont know if it is possible) AND add a metronome, please, we all NEED a metronome. Maybe inside the Looper as an extra option like the 1/2 time option... (if you let me start dreaming,it would be awesome the chance of change the tweak sounds and/or a rhythm box!!)

 

And At least at the Helix Editor, a decibels meter that help to balance levels between effects and channels or snapshots.

 

I think this two thinks are a "must be in", at least for a full time user like me.

 

Cheers and thank you for your time!

I hate to tell you this but you just wasted a lot of time writing about all the things you'd like them to add.  They don't look here for such things, they look on IdeaScale where your ideas get voted on by other users to see if it would be worth adding.

I have to disagree about the metronome idea - it is not something I want on Helix; I am thinking it is going to be quite dangerous; presumably it is switched on or off per looper instance, so in the middle of the live set you switch patches to one you last used while practising at home, switch on the looped and the metronome now comes out of the PA at high volume and the only way to stop it is to stop playing and either tap like crazy in foot controlled editing or get down on your knees.

 

Don't get me wrong - using a metronome is a very important tool, but I use a free app on my phone for simple practice or a drum pattern player for more complex things such as EZ Drummer. I just don't see it as something that an Amp/Effect tool should include - at least while the looper is not quantised, and if you need that complexity for looping then Helix isn't the right tool.

 

That said, have you looked at this (phil_m posted here and TGP):

Mate, i dont know how it should be programmed (it is Line6's work!) but if you have an On/off button in the looper block and it is Off by default always... there are no real problem. Fractal has it and i don't read any report of their users!
