vinny199 Posted January 9, 2019 Share Posted January 9, 2019 Love my Helix but there is one thing that really makes me wonder if I can keep using it as my main rig. I'm a singer / guitarist. Sometimes, changing patches while singing / in between lines is a bit tricky, and it is so easy to hit the bank button instead of the first snapshot button. If you do that, you're quickly in noman's land trying to get back to your patch, or worse, finding yourself in another song's patch etc. You have to react very quickly and press the cancel button to save yourself and that's not really easy done if you sing, you have to drop out of the song for a bit while you reset yourself where you need to be. If I only played guitar, this would never happen, but having to sing / perform (which means looking forward as much as possible instead of your feet) and change patches, i messed up a few times already and it is driving me nuts. I'm sure it wouldn't be a big thing to update the firmware to add a feature where you have an option to set the bank selectors to "press and hold" for a couple of seconds before they become active, instead of "as soon as you hit them". I'm not saying this setting should be by default, but it would be extremely useful to some of us as an option. There is plenty of time between songs to hold a button 2 seconds. For me, I'd take this feature over any new ampo, effect, goodies they may bring out., Such a small thing, such a big impact. I hope someone at line 6 takes notice of that suggestion Cheers, Vinny Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
