Transfer License Question

Recommended Posts

You can download the Line 6 licensing tool and de-authorize the old one. It’s also worth noting that you can license it on up to five systems.

Just as I thought here is LIne6 reply - hope it helps others

 

Hi Richard, 
 
You are correct. Within the Helix Native software you may navigate to the setting menu using the "cog wheel" to de authorize the computer associated with your Helix Native License. This will prevent you from losing one of your authorizations.

You can get your helix running on your backup computer just loose one authorization whatever that means I mean you did buy it anyway you have 5 authorizations so you loose one no big deal just unauthorized it next time on a working computer, because your computer crashed you dont have a choice

You will have to re-authorization on your new computer and should be good to go - I found it takes at least 24 hours to get a ticket answered fyi

No you can download it right now and trial it for quite a bit of time 10 days or more cant remember, then you can buy it actually right in Helix if you want while in your daw there is a button to purchase now - I bought mine from sweetwater but buying direct from Line6 would be easier also you have floor unit so I would just buy from Line6 as they know who you are and the discount you should get

You go here

 

https://line6.com/software/

 

under all software pull down pick Helix Native and to the right your operating system - then hit go button

 

1.5 Helix Native shows up - scroll down and click get download - thats it good to go you can install it tell your daw where the Helix vst is (make a sound track layer like for your guitar then load the helix vst and the helix menu will show up - everything you need to do is right there or you could just go to line6 shop and buy it - it will tell you how much it is put in that sale code to get discount

Remember Helix Native has nothing to do with your floor board to different products - hence the different versions 1.5 vs your 2.5

Keep in mind helix Native is limited right now on midi control - update is coming for that - right now your floor will work great with pedals - Native not so easy until full support is added

So you are saying that the Native is NOW the editor? You no longer download the 2.2 version on to ur laptop with the editor in it?

No Native is a different program it does not use the floor unit (its standalone) - a less expensive way of having helix if you dont want to pay for an expensive floor unit

Well that's useless to me. I have the floor unit and am trying to get my laptop to connect to it. Thanks for the education on the native. Need education on the helix computer software though. Anyone else out here that can help me?
